Old Navy Active Wear
Dear Fast and Free Tight,
I’m seeing someone else.
…But seriously, I spent $20 on these bottoms vs. $128 for what I typically wear to the gym & the matching bra is every bit as cute too — and you know I like the matchy bra & scrunchies! Not from Old Navy, but I also got so many compliments on my tank when I wore it to work out and afterwards when I was running a bunch of errands!
Have you checked out EllandEmm yet? They have such fun designs combined with your favorite cotton tees & sweatshirts — a perfect blend of cute & comfortable. I also love the 90’s nostalgia! I shared my Troop Beverly Hills tee on our Instagram in May & was so excited that my Vogue lightweight sweatshirt arrived this week. I’ll take a picture in it to post soon, but it’s 110 degrees here and I. JUST. CAN’T. The Vogue striped sweatshirt was sold out when I found it, but I signed up for an email alert & purchased when it was restocked. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t have to wait too long for it to be restocked or for shipping. If you find something you love, you can use code TAKE104U for 10% off your order.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Coming!
Cardholders Shop First! I’m truly not one to encourage friends to open up credit card accounts. I mean we’re not freshman in college & no one is giving us free tshirts for new accounts anymore amirite? BUT…this is one exception because you really can stock up on so many great items during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s Cardholder Early Access. This year, Nordstrom cardmembers shop Early Access seven days early, July 12—18! Some items will sell out during the Early Access portion of the sale, so non-cardholders risk having to wait for Black Friday to catch these sale prices again. Cardholders can also choose their own double-points day, so if you plan on shopping the Anniversary Sale, it pays to get organized ahead of time and really take advantage of those Nordy rewards.
I’ve had a Nordstrom card for several years to take advantage of Cardholder Early Access during this sale and I don’t think it’s any accident that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes place over my birthday! The Nordstrom Sale preview came in the mail the other day, and I put together some links to my favorite items. If you click the hearts near the items you like, you’ll have an easier time finding them when the sale begins! Most of my favorites come in lots of color options, but it’s only allowing me to show you certain images/colors while the sale is in preview mode–I’ll continue to update this post as the sale gets closer, so check back!! The links below might also look like an item is Sold Out, but that means Nordstrom hasn’t made it available for sale on their site just yet. There is so much more to come, but let’s start here:
My personal wish list before we head to Clear Lake!
Final Fave For Now!
My oldest girlfriend is putting the finishing touches on a new lake home at that other Iowa lake this month so I got her a fun doormat as a housewarming gift!
