What are your plans for the 4th? I’m looking forward to a relaxing week at Lake Tahoe enjoying all the High Sierra has to offer; biking, hiking, zip lining and kayaking to lazy days on the beach, catching up on reading, BBQ, and many family game nights. Have you played Ticket To Ride |HERE? It’s one of my family’s favorite board games! It takes me a few days to adjust to the altitude and pace at the Lake, but I always leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Can we talk about this adorable graphic from the amazing Beth Briggs? Whimsical and chic, Beth is my kind of girl. Browse the collection on her website | HERE. As you read on today, get the skinny on July Sales and deets on Nordstrom Early Access. I’ve got some Lakeside style to share, and don’t miss The AskSuzanneBell High Sierra Skinny Cocktail – I have to say, I’m pretty proud of my happy hour concoction!
July Sale Skinny | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
July is the time when retailers start slashing prices. Speaking of slashing, did you see as of 7/4 Anthropologie is offering 40% off all Sale!! WhoHoo! Did you purchase something last week during their 25% off sale offering? I find Anthro to be pretty flexible with their adjustment policy, and it never hurts to ask! I’ve always had a positive experience with price adjustments during their Tag Sales. All our favorite retailers are clearing their racks and if you are looking for summer sandals, Nordstrom has some fabulous deals right now! And speaking of Nordstrom, mark your calendars for 7/12 – the first day cardholders can pre-shop the awesome Anniversary Sale during Early Access, before the sale goes public. Up to 40% off on brand new fall merchandise is a good reason to circle the date! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is when I stock up on lingerie, shop accessories, handbags, jewelry and of course shop shoes! There will be great deals in cosmetics as well. I suggest making a list of what you are missing in your closet – otherwise it is super easy to over-buy. AND if there is something you LOVE, grab it! Quantities on hot items are limited – Nordstom has a great return policy if you change your mind.
As the saying goes, “Life Is Better At The Lake” (yes, it is written on souvenirs across our country – wherever a lake is involved). Life and style take on a laid back vibe, the minute you hit most lakeside communities. Plus it’s dusty. One can only wear so much white before a laundry issue occurs. Today’s dress is a convertible dress, meaning you can wear it multiple ways. This dress can be worn as a skirt, or strapless midi as I am wearing below. Convertible dresses are awesome when you want to go from the lake (or beach, pool) into evening. I linked a few for you in the Outfit Deets below.
