Currently Obsessing Over... {V. 77}

Happy Friday y'all! I'm so excited because this afternoon I'm off to Palm Beach for an impromptu girls weekend with two of my best gals! Asha, Sheila, and I were roomies in college, and now that we live all across Florida we decided to make it a point to get together for a fun weekend trip! I can't wait to be on the road this afternoon!

Until then, I have lots of exciting news and fun goodies to tell y'all about!

Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Home Decor


One Dress: Two Ways - Lilly Pulitzer Essie Dress

Y'all know that I believe clothes should work for all areas of your life- the more variety the more fun! So I get so excited to put these posts together and show you multiple ways to wear some of my favorite "of the moment" pieces! 

Weekending: Green Bay, WI

I'm so excited I finally pulled this post together! I've been wanting to share my sweet 4th of July weekend in Green Bay with y'all since I got back, but sometimes I can been the slowest ever about downloading my pictures... #BadBlogger

I hadn't been to WI in TEN years (what?!) to see my mom's side of the family- so what a special treat it was to be able to spend some quality time with them! We were there to celebrate my grandparent's 60th (!!) wedding anniversary and it being a great chance to get everyone together!

BP Cognac Crossbody Bag ($45.00, now $29.90) // Kate Spade Mini Glitter Studs ($32.00, now $20.90) // Kate Spade Tri Color Watch ($295.00, now $196.90) // Bourbon & Bowties Stack of Three Bangles ($99.00, now $65.90) // Kate Spade Scallop Metro Watch ($195, now $129.90) // Monogram Canvas Tote ($52.00, now $33.90) // Tory Burch Nude Wedges ($285.00, now $189.90) // Plaid Blanket Scarf ($29.00, now $18.90) // Louise et Cie Nude Flats ($139.95, now $89.90) // Kate Spade Bangle ($78, now $49.90) // BP Tassel Crossbody Bag ($45.00, now $29.90)

Tropical Print Romper

Romper: Loft (old, great option here) // Necklace: Kendra Scott Rayne // Wedges: Altar'd State // Clutch: c/o Marley Lilly // Apple Watch // Bangles: Bourbon and Bowties

Hey y'all! So sorry I was MIA yesterday... I've mentioned a few times, but work is seriously kicking my behind and it means that sometimes me personal life falls behind. When I logged on to my computer to get my blog post ready I realized I was WAY behind in answering emails (#oops) so I spent the night catching up - and I can't tell you how good it feels! I'm trying to keep up with it all, but it can sure get hard y'all!

Any who... on to today's look! My closet is no stranger to bright, bold patterns, so it can't be a surprise that I scooped this one up as soon as I saw it! This one is actually from Loft a summer or two ago, but when I came across it NWT on Poshmark I could't resist! (Side note: I'm kind of obsessed with both buying & selling on Poshmark- so many good deals!!) Paired with my new & super comfy wedges and trusty monogram clutch- this is a great summer night out look! 

Workweek Chic: Big Ruffles and Black and White

Tank: J. Crew Factory (option 1 here & option 2 here) // Skirt: J. Crew (option 1 here & option 2 here) // Flats: Tory Burch Reva c/o Shopbop // Clutch: Old Navy // Apple Watch

I adore spicing up my workweek wardrobe with bold ruffles and fun patterns - it makes the everyday more fun! On their own, these pieces could easily be dressed down, but together they are a sassy statement - and that statement is "I'm here to impress!" Since I'm often off to meetings or drinks after hours, I love to throw a clutch in my larger tote so that I'm ready to go when the day is done. I also really like that the blue and black here is a little unexpected (no looking like a bruise!) and as long as your shades are different you're good to go!

Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Tops

Top Row: Wayf Floral Print Ruffle Tank ($56, Now $36.90) // BP Striped Crewneck Tunic ($28, Now $17.90) // BP Striped Ruffle Peplum ($42, Now $27.90)
Bottom Row: Sandra Plaid Turquoise Tunic ($78, Now $51.90) // BP Open Front Cardigan ($48, Now $31.90) // Tory Burch Poncho ($295, Now $196.90) // Billabong Plaid Cardigan ($54.95, Now $35.90)

Sunday Scripture + Thoughts

Happy Sunday sweet friends! Sorry that I haven't been consistent with the Sunday Scripture series, I've been a little out of touch in my own prayer life, and I haven't wanted to paint a false front on the blog. Thank goodness that the Lord is faithful, even when I am not!

Best of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Women's Dresses

Well friends, happy Friday! If you looked at the internet at all yesterday you couldn't have missed the news that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access started- and man oh man are the deals insanely good!! I was hoping I could have a post ready for y'all as soon as the sale launched, but alas this girl has a full-time job and needed to sleep at 3am ;) But don't worry, I poured over every page of the sale and have rounded up the best of the best: my very favorites from the #NSale!
(Remember you have to have a Nordstrom card to shop the Early Access sale, it opens to the public on July 22)

First up, today we're tackling the best of the best in dresses! It's no secret that I live year-round in dresses; one piece dressing is so easy. You just pull on a dress and boom! You look fabulous! What I love about many of the pieces in this year's sale is that they are great for now and later. Since they are lightweight, you can rock them with sandals through the summer, and then come fall layer them with a fab fur vest and booties!

Billabong Floral Shift Dress ($54.95, $34.90) // Angie Print Caftan Dress ($48, $31.90) // Mimi Chica Floral Romper ($48, $31.90) // Cece Scalloped Shift Dress ($148, $98.90) // Cece Bouquet Floral Trapeze Dress ($125, $85.90) // Angie Printed Shift Dress ($48, $31.90)


Girly in Gingham

Loft Gingham Drop-Waist Dress // c/o Marley Lilly Monogrammed Clutch (On sale for $14.99!!) // Etsy Tassel Necklace (Similar) // Apple Watch // Merona Tennis Shoes ("Real" Version here)

Hey y'all- hope you're having a rocking' week so far! It's been a crazy busy one over here; remember that huge merge I've been telling y'all about at work? Well it is kind of taking over my life! It definitely makes the days fly by, but isn't leaving as much room for fun as I would like! Definitely trying to soak up the opportunity though- thankful for it!

Any who... today I'm excited to share this darling gingham drop-waist dress with y'all! You loved it when I featured it in my last Dressing Room Diaries post, and I'm happy to say it's just as fun in person! I styled it recently for a breezy weekend outing- that meant breaking out the tennis shoes and an easy cross body- but you could easily swap it out for wedges and be brunch appropriate!

Girls Night Out (& My Outfit is on Sale!)

J. Crew Factory Peplum Tank (on sale for $44.50) // Loft Striped Riviera Shorts (on sale for $34.99 + Extra 40% off!) // c/o Oka-B "Annabelle" Wedges (get 20% off with code "OKABGIRL16") // Bourbon and Bowties Bangles // Apple Watch // Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace // Old Navy Tassel Clutch

When dressing for a girl's night out, it seems counterintuitive to say, but comfort is k-e-y. If you're out sharing apps and your pants are too tight- no fun. If your shoes are cute but make you want to hobble home- no fun. And when out with your besties FUN is definitely an important thing to be having! Enter this fun shorts look that is as comfortable as it is cute!!

Workweek Chic: Banana Republic Floral Top

Banana Republic: Sleeveless Floral Top (extra 50% off the sale price!) // Gap: Black Capris // J. Crew Factory: Nude Wedges // Old Navy: Black Tassel Clutch // Apple Watch

Friend, welcome to a brand new week! I'm still working on compiling my weekend pictures from WI so I am excited to instead kick off the week with a brand new work look! Banana Republic has been running an amazing "50% off Sale prices" sale so I've been able to stock up on great work pieces like this floral vee neck blouse. Especially in this intense summer heat, pieces like these allow me to look pulled together and yet are breathable enough that I don't sweat it up before an important meeting! (Trust me, the struggle is real right now!)


Currently Obsessing Over... {v. 76}

I am over the moon to see this Friday come... I need it desperately! I'm working on a huge new brand launch at work and I've had 1 too many late nights & early mornings this week! It's such an exciting time for me professionally, but it definitely takes it's toll on you. Time to rest up this weekend! And y'all I have some fun adventures in the works this weekend... can't wait to share them with ya!! (Hint: It involves a very popular talk show host!!)

Don't worry though... I've still had time to fun some fabulous favorites to share with you today! {I just love putting these "Currently Obsessing Over" posts together for y'all!! :)}

Summer Layers f. Oka-B

Romper: Gap // Jacket: Old Navy (almost exact) // Sandals: c/o Oka B // Sunglasses: Target

Well there is no doubt about it my friends, summer is here! If you're anywhere in the south, then you most definitely don't need this jacket layer, but up north you can definitely use it to keep warm if there is a nighttime chill. One thing the north and south can agree on? Sandals are always the way to tie an outfit together! These Oka-B Cokie sandals are perfect for whatever your summer has in store- from backyard get-togethers to beach nights!

PS- I'm also featured on the Oka-B blog and I would love for you to check it out! :) Remember that you can save 20% off your order with code "OKABGIRL16" !!

Hey y'all- happy Tuesday & July!! I'm so glad to be back in action today (did you miss me?!) If you keep up with my adventures on Insta and Snapchat (@girlmeetsbow) then you saw that I was on an awesome family vacay to the great state of WI! My grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary (that's right... SIXTY Years!) and the whole family got together to celebrate! It was such a wonderful weekend and so nice to catch up with relatives that I hadn't seen in almost 10 years. Plus, the weather was a total dream - 70 degrees and no humidity! #TakeMeBack I plan on sharing all my pictures soon, but for today a new outfit post is in order!
