Holiday Shopping with Nordstrom

This post is sponsored by Nordstrom. All opinions are my own.


The holidays are creeping up faster this year than ever before this year (to me), and Nordstrom has proven to be the one-stop shop for everyone on my list. So much so, that I quickly found the perfect gift for my mom and best friend. My husband, who is notoriously tricky to shop for was solved - and all of this in under an hour's time. It is a new personal holiday shopping record.

If you're like me, internet shopping is my preferred way to cross off everyone on my list from the comfort of home. Who needs crowds?

This season, I shopped the Nordstrom gift guide with gift suggestions for everyone. For example, I discovered a metallic North Face coat that is PERFECT for my best friend, equal parts glam and outdoor adventurous, in ‘The Outdoorsy Type’ gifting suggestions on

I am currently finishing up wrapping presents and listening to Christmas music while burning a holiday scented candle. It always gets me in the holiday spirit.

Glossier Debuts New Two Floor Store on Lafayette Street

Glossier debuts its brand new two-level shop on Lafayette street this week, and it’s a haven of pink.


All smooth curves and clean lines, complete with a wet bar where shoppers can try the skin care routine (of which I am a all-in user of these days), and an experiential room with life-sized Boybrow for the complete Honey We Shrunk the Kids selfie moment. It’s good.


Plan your visit to the new store, open to the public tomorrow. (123 Lafayette Street, NYC)


Exploring NOLA with Nordstrom

I may receive commission or a percentage of sales from items purchased.

If you're like me, internet shopping is my preferred way to discover (and track down) new brands and new key pieces each season. For fall, I picked up a few key pieces from Nordstrom including this R13 vintage inspired tees, Paige distressed denim mini and sick Christian Louboutin studded oxfords.

Nordstrom is the natural partner because of how regularly and easily I can find a wide variety of pieces to complete my look, from nail polish to sunglasses to luxury loafers that will never come off my feet again. I also love regularly browsing SPACE at Nordstrom, the shop for emerging and advanced designers.

I am currently in New Orleans exploring, eating and in search of vintage. More on that later. Check out my look from Nordstrom below pictured while roaming the beautiful shops and homes on Magazine Street.
