Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Roundup

Wow the choices! This year’s Anniversary Sale is proving to be Ah-mazing and we are finding it hard to only pick a few! We prepared our list, checked it twice – well really checked it more than a couple of times – and were ready bright and early! We met at 2AM, grabbed a cup of coffee and logged in for the 3AM early access!!  Can you tell we were excited?! Well, then there is the practical part where the little ones wake up bright and early and we wanted to give our full attention to the task at hand – great deals!

Not only did we get more than a few pretty things for us, we scored an anniversary present, birthday presents and a few Christmas presents.  Full disclosure here, the Christmas presents may or may not be for us. Ha! So with all that said, we’ve highlighted a few of the items that we picked up before the sun came up AND we even captured the fun in a quick video (check it out on our IGTV Channel @2styleavenue).  I’m sure we will find a few other things that we will get over the next few weeks but we are off to a really great start!

Summers at the Beach

We were blessed to grow up spending our summers in North Myrtle Beach.  Mom picked us up the last day of school, the van was packed and we were off!  Dad would always join us on the weekends and we would celebrate with games of putt-putt and cookouts.  There are so many amazing memories we have from those summers.  Days and days spent on the beach with some sandwiches and crackers thrown into the beach bag, stacks of books being read, playing paddle ball, and going “shrimping”.  (“Shrimping” is when we would throw on some old shoes and head down to the marsh a couple of blocks away with a shrimp net. A dirty, smelly job, but we always walked away covered in marsh mud, laughing, and with a bucket of shrimp!)  Now that we are moms, we are determined to make the same memories for our sweet babies, so you may be seeing quite a few pictures fromm North Myrtle Beach in the coming weeks!

I don’t think you can spend that much time in Myrtle Beach without developing an appreciation for Shag.  I love the music, I love the retro Shag style, and I love the dance.  Unfortunately, even though I took Shag as a dance elective in college, I can still only do the basic steps!  So when I saw this lightweight gingham top in J.Crew Factory, I HAD to get it!  Paired with these amazingly comfy Winnie pants (also from J.Crew Factory – you can NEVER go wrong at this store!), add these Lucky Brand distressed denim sandals, and I can almost hear “Stagger Lee” by Lloyd Price playing in the background.  If you are asking yourself, “What is Stagger Lee?” or “Who is Lloyd Price?” right now, I beg you to PLEASE Google – you will not be disappointed!  The entire outfit is flattering and comfortable for any body type!  And for those moms out there – it is very “mom-friendly”.  You can chase those kids around all day without getting overheated, or having to worry about showing too much skin when bending over!

Wishing everyone a very happy summer filled with memories!  We are off to the Ocean Drive so we can listen to some music and watch the pros Shag (and yes, we will probably get out there and embarrass ourselves too)!


Pretty Polka Dots

Can you believe we are halfway through June already? I’m still adjusting to the fact that we went from cool to super hot here in the Carolinas. So much so, that I just completely transitioned to my summer clothes two weeks ago.  What I remembered when I finally did pull out my summer wear…I got rid of a lot of my summer tops due to stains, holes or them just looking well worn. I’m taking that it meant it was a summer well lived, right?! With all that said, I have been on the hunt for some tops. I was so excited to find this flattering tie-waisted top from Express. The material is thick enough where it doesn’t show every unflattering bump and it provides some substance in the cooler air conditioned places. The polka dots have both white and pink that contrast nice with black. I absolutely love this fit! I may go back and get the same top in solid blush and white! This top can be dressed up or down depending on the the occasion. It worked perfectly for a dinner out at the beach and I already have plans to wear this to an upcoming business luncheon.

Next up, the pants. I was super hesitant to purchase a pair of white ones not only because of the kids messy little fingers, but also from my clumsy hands. My husband has asked me to get a pair the last few seasons and when I saw these were on sale at Old Navy, I caved. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the Mid-Rise Super Skinny Rockstar style on and they fit amazingly well! They had just the right amount of give while keeping their shape. I wore them out to dinner and the material was not too thick for the summer beach heat. Plus, the price tag didn’t break the bank ($29.00). Thank you Old Navy!


Hooked on Brooks

Hallelujah summer is coming! But….with summer comes bathing suits! Bathing suits require preparation. Preparation requires a great pair of running shoes! I take getting a
new pair of shoes very seriously. I try on A LOT of shoes when buying a new pair! I run on the store treadmill and walk around the aisles. Yes, I’m that girl! These shoes carry me around hours upon hours a week. So, what pair did I choose you ask….

Let me introduce you to the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18.  Brooks has a reputation for being a fantastic running shoe. This shoe is lightweight and has adaptable cushioning that make them oh so comfy every time you slip them on for your next workout. They have been my workout companions for three weeks and they have not let me down. I have not had any foot or knee pain with the transition to these new shoes.  This style comes in a rainbow of colors, I can almost bet you will find one that is right for you. I have on the grey, rose gold and ebony. If you are in need of a new pair of running shoes to get you prepped for summer, I would try slipping these on.
