Happy WEEKEND…Weekend Reading is here. And also, this little thing called the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – have you heard of it? 😉 Seriously, it’s *taken* the internet by storm. And if you’re an Early Access cardholder, chances are, you’ve already shopped ’til you dropped – or until everything sold out. Ha! ICYMI, pick up my top picks here before they sell out, since stuff flies off the shelves both in-store AND online during this humdinger circus of a sale. If you’re NOT shopping Nordy’s but still in the shopping spirit, I have a new-to-me boutique that I MUST share with you girls, because it’s so stinkin’ cute. One of my best friends, Chelsie, works there, so I discovered it through her! They sell reaaaaaally cute things that are more modest in nature, so if you’re on the hunt for versatile pieces that are really pretty without being too revealing or anything, HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Also, everything is seriously affordable, which can be unique in boutiques, so I wholeheartedly appreciate that. AND they were so kind as to offer a discount code for you girls, so I’m linking a few favorites below – drop code ERICA10 at checkout for 10% off, and pop by my Instastories today to see a lil’ try-on session of four personal faves. OK. ONTO WEEKEND READING.
