Splurge vs. Save: Leopard Print Accessories

Leopard print is a hot trend this season, showing up in everything from leopard print shoes to sweaters to belts and handbags.  When it comes to trendy items, I prefer to save money by purchasing lower-priced items that will last only a season or two and splurge on wardrobe pieces that are more timeless.

So, I've put together my finds for some leopard print accessories, so that you can add a hint of this fall trend to your outfit without totally over-doing it.  This list includes leopard print flats, leopard print pumps, leopard print clutches, and leopard print belts.  There is something for everyone's budget.

Items for every budget, this list includes leopard print flats, pumps, clutches, and belts.

Fall Faves: Must-haves in Fashion, Beauty, and Lifestyle

I am so beyond excited that the weather is starting to cool down and fall is showing it's colors.  I think fall is my favorite time of year, as I enjoy the changing of the seasons and appreciate the cool down after long hot North Carolinian summers.  This year I am especially excited to incorporate some new fashion, beauty and lifestyle trends into my wardrobe and routine.  Here is my list of fall favorites for 2018.


This curated list of stylish, trendy, and practical fall favorites are perfect additions for the changing season.

5 Must-Read Summer Book Recommendations

I've always been an avid reader.  My earliest childhood memories include reading picture books with my parents, and as I grew older, my love for narratives by Beverly Cleary and Judy Bloom went strong.  In high school, I can remember devouring the vampire-themed novels that were popular at the time, then segueing into John Grisham thrillers in my twenties.

These days, I enjoy reading anything from Memoir and Historical Fiction to Realistic Fiction and Chick-Lit.  My favorite books are those that make me think deep, with characters that are relatable and realistic.

Over the years, with life getting busy, reading has often gone to the wayside.  But this summer, I rekindled my love for reading and have been able to finish quite a few novels.  I've put together my summer reading list with five of my favorite reads (well, four books and one series) that you won't want to put down and will keep you turning the pages.

Fashion Friday Feature: Items to Wear Now from the Nordstrom Sale

Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (for Nordstrom Cardholders only) started yesterday and so many people were trying to purchase online that the website crashed!  This sale is no joke, and clearly, people take it very seriously!

The thing about this sale is that it occurs right smack in the middle of summer when we are all sweating in our shorts and tank tops, dreaming of cooler weather to come.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unique from their other sales because this sale features new fall items at a discounted price.  But it can be hard to gear up for fall when we are sweltering in the heat.

For this reason, I've put together a look featuring items from the sale that can be worn now AND later in the fall.  Keep in mind that you must be a cardholder to access the sale right now.  On July 20, the sale opens up to the general public.
