Wow, it feels like forever since I’ve shared What I Wore Lately! I guess it’s only been two weeks, but it’s been a looooong two weeks. Today I’m rounding up my daily outfits from the past few weeks, including what I wore on vacation in Maine.
But first, some initial thoughts on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I was able to shop in-store yesterday, so I went in around 10am, only to find the sale in full swing! I guess they opened early for Icon members to shop. My appointment wasn’t till 11:00, so the girls and I walked around to get a lay of the land, so to speak.
Both of my girls love going with me, now that they know what it’s all about, which is fun. But it also means that my attention is divided, and I can’t focus solely on curating the sale for the blog and finding those key pieces that I will love and wear all winter.
It didn’t help that inventory was really lacking in our store yesterday. My stylist told me that 50% of their inventory hasn’t arrived yet! When I got home, I started watching IG Stories to see what other bloggers were finding, and they were all saying the same thing. So yeah, shopping online is still your best bet.
That said, I found PLENTY to bring home, and there’s more coming. I’m going to post a try-on haul tomorrow from the dressing room selfies, but I’ll have a much more comprehensive post later in the week, once I get everything in and try it on here at home. Meanwhile, here’s what I wore lately…
What I Wore Lately
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and around 137 pounds, with an hourglass shape. Unless I say otherwise, I’m wearing a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, a 6 in dresses/jumpsuits, and size 8 shoe.
Starting with Tuesday, two weeks back, I wore this casual outfit to a chiropractor appointment. Other than that, I was just working from home.
I don’t have any pictures from the next day, but on Thursday, we left for Maine. It was dark when we left the house, but I snapped this from our hotel room in Portsmouth, NH, after we got in. It had been a looong day, so I’m looking a little rough.
I also had one of the girls snap this shot while we were walking to dinner. It was mostly to feature the tote, which I love and highly recommend if you need a work tote.
It has three sections, and the middle one is a zippered compartment for your laptop. Then it has really nice sized wall pockets on either side of that zippered compartment — two that fit large cell phones, and one on the other side that fits a Kindle or small tablet. Very slick! Plus, the pebbled leather is gorgeous, and it has feet on the bottom for protection. They really thought of everything with this tote.
There aren’t any pictures of the next couple of days. It was rainy and cold, and there are no full-length mirrors at camp.
On July 4th, I braved the mist for this picture. It rained all day, and our cookout plans and 4th of July party were canceled, but my aunt and her family visited later in the day. My mom served surf & turf with steamed Maine lobsters. #yum
The next day was much nicer! We took a day trip to Camden, Maine. They have so many cute shops, and we had lunch by the water.
That was the day Paul started feeling poorly, and we spent the night in the ER. I brought him home the next morning, and we stayed at camp all day while my parents took the girls to Bar Harbor.
That brings us to last Wednesday, our last full day in Maine. Paul was doing a little better, and he didn’t mind being left alone to enjoy some peace and quiet while the rest of us went out to dinner. I wore this casual outfit. I love how the rattan earrings make it a little more fun and summery.
My mom took this picture of the girls and me after dinner. Caroline made that dress she’s wearing.
I spent most of Saturday unpacking and working from home, but I did run out at one point to get a mani/pedi. This sweatshirt is one I picked up in a boutique in Portsmouth, NH, during our stopover on the way up. I got OPI You Don’t Know Jacques on my nails.
I wore this comfy set on Sunday to hang out at home and visit with friends later in the day.
And finally, this is what I wore yesterday to shop the #NSale. I went for casual and comfy — and made sure it was all pieces I could easily slip off and on in the dressing room. I also made sure my jewelry was simple and items that don’t tend to get caught on clothing as I’m changing.
