#NSale – Women’s Clothing

Favorite Pin Friday has been replaced this week, but will return next week. If you’ve been following Lexi & Lady for awhile you know I love to shop. There is something about new clothes, well fitting clothes, and statement pieces that can bring a girl some confidence. When I shop I look for items that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I want to get the most bang for my buck. We aren’t all millionaires! I keep my eyes open for sales.

That being said, who has shopped the Nordstrom sale? I avoided the store at all costs. It’s also really hard to think about fall and winter clothing with it’s hot and humid (thank you Texas)! Here are some of the clothing items I ran across that I think would be good staples in anyone’s closet. A lot of the items come in different colors, but the shape and style is what I think makes them key pieces to add to your wardrobe. This cape jacket screams Olivia Pope to me. P.S. When is Scandal coming back!?

Yes I skipped shoes and accessories; coming Monday so check back. Don’t forget, the sale ends August 3 and there is FREE shipping.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Serve Them in Style

Wrapped up a fun weekend which included a girl’s wine night at my house and a superhero party for a very special 3 year old. Both events were fun, but Sunday was a lazy day for me and I highly enjoyed the down time. As many of you have probably gathered by now, I love to entertain. There’s something about having a house full of people and hearing conversation and laughter that gives me joy. The details that go into planning are what get me excited; the theme, menu, décor, etc.

When it comes to food, display means a lot. A good server or platter is where it’s at. When Austin and I got married I had lot of serving pieces on the registry because I knew one day we would entertain. Of course there are always a million more I’d like to own, but that comes with time. Here are some I’ve discovered while “window shopping” online. P.S. beautiful platters make great gifts…especially if you fill them with cookies 😉

Don’t forget to label your food too. There are a number of ways to make sure people know what they’re piling on their plate. Maybe that will be a post for next week…

I purchased the Sur la table ombre beverage dispenser and it’s everything I wanted it to be! Holds 3 gallons and the beautiful hand blown elements make it one of a kind. What event(s) are you planning next? Until next post…xoxo Becca
