Happy August 1st loves! I cannot believe it’s already August but I’m pretty excited about it because it’s my birthday month! Yipppppe!

It’s been a little while since my last blog post and that is only because Bryson and I decided to move within a weeks notice about 10 days ago. We literally found a new house on a Tuesday and had the keys to it on that Thursday. What a whirlwind the end of July was for us but we finally got the internet installed at our new place yesterday and we are starting to feel fully settled. I’ve shared a few sneak peaks of what our new place looks like on my Instagram stories (@jenniferxlauren) but I plan to do room reveals as we get them finished. This house is literally a marble lovers dream with all white walls and I can’t wait to share it!

On another note – the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is still in full swing and I wanted to dedicate a post to what I have been shopping the most of this year and that is athletic styles. Being completely honest with you guys; I wear athletic styles Monday – Friday during the day while I’m working at home or running errands. To me they are so much easier to put together and they’re just more comfortable. I have recently fallen in LOVE with the brand Zella which is an athletic brand sold exclusively at Nordstrom and they have such cute styles in the sale this year. All of the styles above are currently in stock and available on the Nordstrom website. You can shop my picks via the + above or by the images below. I just had to put another order in because I cannot get enough of these Zella sale picks and I am loving the styles and feel of this brand more than any of my Lululemon purchases. Just saying!

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy shopping!

Happy Friday + day 2 of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access (if you’re a Nordstrom card holder, if not the sale will open to the public on the 21st). In yesterday’s post I shared my top picks from the whole sale which included a lot of clothes, shoes, workout clothes as well as some beauty and home decor (check out that post here). I have recently started to love shopping for home decor (am I getting old?) even more than clothes and shoes so I was excited with the selection of home stuff on sale. Above are my top picks for home decor in the Nordstrom sale and you can shop them via the + next to each image. I LOVE the bar cart as well as the fuzzy pink pillow + the wall art and rugs.

I also had a lot of people ask me what I have purchased from the sale so far so I am sharing what I got below. I was able to pick up 4 of the items from my local Nordstrom which I will be sharing on my Instagram throughout the weekend (@jenniferxlauren). I did have to have the rest of my order shipped so I will share those when they arrive.

What I Bought!

I hope you guys are enjoying these sale posts and if you have any questions or need help shopping send me an email to jennifer@jenniferxlauren.com.

Happy day one of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (if you’re a Nordstrom card holder, if not don’t worry you can shop the sale starting the 21st). I am ashamed/proud to say I already have a large cart full of goodies waiting to checkout. There are SO MANY good things on sale from clothes to shoes to beauty and home decor. Above are my top picks and some of the things I am checking out with. These are also the things I think will sell out the fastest.

I plan to share what I am purchasing plus my top beauty and home decor picks as the sale progresses so stay tuned for that! You can also shop ALL of my Nordstrom Sale Picks at the very top of my website under the Nordstrom Sale Picks tab.

As always if you have any questions about the sale feel OR if you just want advice on a certain item – I’m your girl! Shoot me an email to jennifer@jenniferxlauren.com. Happy shopping!

Happy Tuesday loves! We got back into town yesterday afternoon after spending the last 5 days in Los Angeles. There is just something so magical about LA from the food to the people to the inspiration and the beautiful surroundings. I absolutely love spending time on the west coast but LA is my favorite!

In case you missed it – Nordstrom is having a big winter sale until the 26th and some of my must have styles are up to 40% off! I hand picked a few of my favorites from clothing to shoes to home and accessories and put them together for you to avoid having to go through all 120 pages of the sale. I hope you can find something you love! My top pick on this list is my go to faux leather jacket that I wear 24-7 and its 35% off right now! Shop that jacket here and shop the rest of my picks via the + icons above or the photos below.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so I thought I would put together another handy gift guide to help with any Valentine’s shopping you might have. I’ve included ideas for both guys and girls to help shopping for moms, dads, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives or even your galentines that much easier. I’m personally the type that would prefer flowers and a date night out rather than anything but I mean I’m not going to refuse that Gucci belt either.

I hope you find this gift guide useful in shopping for your loved ones and thank you as always for stopping by!
