Packing for a Quick Beach Vacation

Charleston beachI am headed to Charleston for a long weekend to visit my little brother!  I hate to check in bags but I also am not the best light packer…  I find that making a list of outfits helps me!  Also, choosing a color scheme helps minimize the shoe selection as well.  For this trip I chose two pairs of shoes in tan.. sandals and wedges and then structured my outfits around those colors.  It is also helpful to pack one pair of bottoms and then a couple casual tops and then a dressy one for night.  Lastly, I like reversible swimsuits because it is a two-in-one for packing!

Anyone been to Charleston?  Any recommendations of what I should do or where I should eat?? Let me know!!

Christmas in July: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2014It truly does feel like Christmas in July when the Nordstrom Anniversary sale rolls around.  Every year Nordstrom puts on this sale with select fall items  that go back to regular price after the sale is over.  It is a great time to stock up on necessities and also pick up some items on trend for the fall.  I have pulled together some of what I think are the best items from the sale!  Merry Christmas!
