Exciting stuff! The Larkin family is giving away a $200 Visa gift card to shop our favorite Memorial Day sales, and we’ve rounded up our favorites below, too! Entering is super easy. :)
Nordstrom 1901 Gingham Skirt / J.McLaughlin Slides c/o (Aren’t these and these super cute, too?!) / Mark and Graham Bamboo Tote c/o (Comes in a ton of colors. Love this one and this one, too!) / “Perfect Tee” (Went up one size. Also available here.) / Liberty London Scarf / Similar Sunglasses / Emma’s Dress / Emma’s Mary Jane Sneakers / Gingham Phone Case
One of my absolute favorite brands right now is 1901, a (relatively new) perfectly preppy Nordstrom line. Ob-sessed.
GUYS! I literally spent my entire workday working on this post on the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale, which just started. It’s without a doubt my most extensive sale overview to date, and I’m pretty proud of it. 😂
I’ve organized my picks into 13 categories: the classics, must-have accessories, date night, “work from home,” lounge and sleepwear, travel staples, “summer-ready,” wedding guest, weekend casual, backyard BBQ, workwear, beach and pool, and “for the fall.” Half-Yearly Sale products tend to sell out quickly, so if you see something you love, pounce!
Also, special thanks for my wonderful husband, who’s responsible for the awesome graphics. Mitch, thanks for knowing which colors to choose for the products; you know me very well. ;)
Trench Coat (Also love this one and this one! Looking for an adult version? This one is my fave b/c it has a removable quilted liner and is so warm!) / Lacoste Dress / Tassel Loafers (Also love these, which are SO affordable! Favorite adult versions here, here, here, here and here.) / Mommy’s Navy Pumps (My most-worn pumps, by far. Super comfy. The nude version is on sale, too!)
Have you heard?! The Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale starts today!
I’ll have another post (with my faves) going live in a little while, but I thought these photos–which I came across the other day while cleaning off my memory card–would be perfect to share in the meantime. I mean, I had to share them. 😂
Tiered Seersucker Skirt (Keeps selling out, but this skirt, this skirt, and this skirt are very similar. See other faves below. I’m also OBSESSED with this gingham skirt which I also own. Size down, though!) / “Perfect Tee” (Went up one size. Also available here.) / Sandals (Considering getting these! Thoughts?) / GiGi New York Crossbody c/o
I had a rather silly epiphany this year.
Meg and Marie “Kelly” Dress (Use code “KELLYINTHECITY” for free shipping, and simply comment on this blog post to enter to win the dress!) / Everlane Sandals c/o (The Steve Madden pair is great, too.) / Longchamp Backpack (Also love the leather version. Swoon!)
Mitch and I recently explored Old Village: a historic, stunningly beautiful, and quaint neighborhood in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. We grabbed coffees at Rudi’s Old Village Wine Shop (which also serves great coffee 😂), and then just just walked up and down the streets for a couple of hours taking in the warmth and admiring the scenery. So many white picket fences and perfectly manicured gardens overflowing with flowers. (I sprinkled a few iPhone photos into this post so you can get an idea of what it’s like!) Certainly worth a visit if you’re ever in the Charleston area since it’s a quick 10-minute drive from the city. :)
But let’s talk about the dress I’m wearing in these photos, because I’m giving one away today!
In the weeks after the conclusion of our final home renovation, a quiet calm descended on the house. A routine emerged that didn’t involve bumping into contractors, tripping over extension cords or choking down sawdust. We now enjoy collaborative recipes, joint snacking sessions, and big family meals at night. Okay, we also sit and stare at the kitchen a lot. Are we worthy of this thing?!
