July 4th SALES

Good morning everyone and Happy July 4th Weekend!

July 4th is always one of my favorite holiday's to celebrate for several reasons. First, it's a time for families and friends to get together and celebrate how blessed we are to live in such an amazing country. Second, it's a time for vacation and food and guilt free calories... right?! I've always been a firm believer of not counting calories on vacation, maybe it's just me. Last, SALES SALES SALES. This is always a good weekend to shop, especially online! So today, I am rounding up the best sales from two of my favorite stores: Target and Nordstrom. 

First, my absolute favorite... Target. I could probably go in there 5 times a week and fill my cart up with stuff every single time. Today, I'm going to share with you their HUGE swim sale and the purchases I recently made for my beach trip this week. ALL of their swimwear is on sale right now for 20% off using the promo code SWIM20! Their bathing suits are all so flattering and there are two in particular that I really loved. I've never tried out the ruffle bottoms but this weekend I tried them and I was not disappointed! They really aren't "cheeky" at all like so many you see now and they both run true to size! Target is also the perfect place for bathing suits if you're like me and can't wear the same size top and bottom. Click the links below for my two favorites that I bought! 
Option 1: Shade & Shore- Coral Print
Option 2: Shade & Shore- Navy Floral 

Next, my favorite place to save AND splurge is Nordstrom. Today I'm going to share with you my outfit details from there and some purchases I've recently made that are all perfect for the 4th and other summer vacations! Not to mention, all of these tops are UNDER $50! 
This top was the first thing I purchased and the best part is its only $35.00! I wasn't sure if I was going to like it when I first saw it in person but I absolutely LOVE it! It's so comfortable and fits true to size. I ordered a Medium so order your usual size. 

Unfortunately, my top is sold out but this is a similar style that comes in the same 'Lipstick Red' color and several other colors! I've always loved wearing red and I think this color is perfect for summer. Also, right now this top is on MAJOR SALE for only $9.90! It runs a little large, so I would order one size down if you want it to be more fitted. Snag it while you can! 
This is the same top in the red color I was talking about. Definitely my favorite option! 

Other outfit details linked below!

Shoes: Are these not THE cutest shoes ever?! My Mom gave them to me for Easter and we are both obsessed! The brand is Marc Fisher and while they are a little bit of a splurge, they are totally worth it. I have them in several colors but these are definitely the most fun! They are sold out almost everywhere but I found them available in a few sizes here at Nordstrom Rack for only $80! I also found them in a tan version on Amazon in even more sizes. Shop the pair on Amazon here. Right now Nordstrom also has a newer and similar style that you can shop here as well in almost ALL sizes! 

Jeans: If you're like me you basically live in white jeans in the spring/summer! My white jeans are SUPER old but I have linked a few similar styles below that I also either have or have tried on and loved! 
2: Jessica Simpson (Mine that I'm wearing are actually a similar style to this and this brand)
3: Hudson (a splurge but SO comfy)

Earrings: My earrings are Kendra Scott and as you will see, I am obsessed with them. I actually purchased mine from Mary & Mak (where I get mostly all of my Kendra). They have all of the latest Kendra earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets and I highly recommend shopping for your Kendra Scott here!

And So It Begins

Hey everyone! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope you enjoy! My name is Addie and I am 23 years young. I grew up in a super small town just outside of Raleigh, NC and have recently moved to Garner, NC. I am a Special Education teacher and just finished up my first year. I am lucky enough to be engaged to my best friend and will be getting married in November! If you know me, you know that there are three things in life that I am truly passionate about: teaching, my English Bulldog, and fashion. Growing up I can remember absolutely hating going shopping. Every weekend, my mom, grandmother, and I would head to Raleigh to shop. While I loved spending the time with them, shopping for clothes and shoes just wasn't my thing. They could spend HOURS trying on this and that in every imaginable store. I, on the other hand, would just sit there and count the minutes until lunch. Clearly, I grew out of that stage... all but counting down the minutes until lunch that is. Over the years, I've developed an absolute obsession with all things fashion and beauty. I've admired blogger after blogger until finally one day I decided why not become one too? And so it begins! 

What will you see on my blog?

As I previously stated, I'm a teacher so even though I love fashion, 99% of the time I'm shopping on a budget. Of course every now and then (maybe more often than I should) I like to splurge on the latest fashion trends or accessories that I just have to have. I mean, who doesn't? With that being the case, my blog is going to be for those who love shopping on a budget but enjoy treating themselves every now and then. I love trendy clothes and accessories but also timeless pieces that I will not ever get tired of. As you will see (and if you know me), I LOVE jewelry and have a particular obsession with statement earrings and bracelets. It is very rare that you see me without at least one bracelet on. Hopefully there will be something for everyone! 

Where did I get my inspiration?

First and foremost, I owe just about all of my confidence and willingness to create this blog to my life long best friend, Payton, who also happens to be my photographer. She and I have been best friends since basically birth and she has always been my number one supporter, especially now. We have been through basically every major milestone in life together and now as we are both engaged and planning our weddings, she is helping me launch this blog! In addition to her, my family, fiancè, and friends have been amazingly supportive and excited for me. There are also several bloggers that I religiously follow and look up to, particularly one of my good friends Holly! She is such an inspiration when it comes to blogging and a true beauty on the inside and out. 

My First Outfit Details...

Last but not least! Is this not the cutest dress?! And talk about shopping on a budget... it was only $45.00. Another friend of mine has recently started her own online boutique: Luna & Stone. They have the cutest clothes and accessories and all at super affordable prices! Shop this dress here! And also my favorite Kendra Scott earrings that you can shop here! These are more of a splurge but DEFINITELY worth it and they come in multiple colors. The bottom tassel can be removed to make them shorter or kept on to make them longer!
