Happy Tuesday? Did Monday just absolutely fly by for you? It did for me and I was not hating it one bit! P.S. did you catch yesterday’s post? Tips on how to host a French inspired picnic. Hands down one of my favorite lifestyle posts to hit Louella Reese! 

Onto today’s post, I’m styling one of my new favorite pieces, a lightweight sweater kimono. While it’s not listed online as a kimono, it totally has that vibe to me so that’s what I’m calling it. I’ve never been one for cardigan sweaters come summer. For some reason I never really like the look of one {more of a denim jacket gal} but all of that changed when I received the one in today’s post. Now I’m throwing it over everything and loving the light layer.

You may remember the tank in today’s post from another recent look. It’s another piece I absolutely love {highly recommend} and have been wearing nonstop. The tank is lightweight, soft and perfect for tucking into skirts or wearing over shorts. One of those easy pieces you find yourself reaching for more times then not! 

On another note, are you so happy the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is over?! I honestly am! While it’s super exciting the first few days, it starts to get overwhelming and exhausting after the first week or so. I will admit though, this years sales was one of my favorites. See my purchases styled for date night, one of my weekend uniforms, and a comfy casual look. Really looking forward to styling all the items for fall! What did you pick up? I’d love to hear, comment below!
