nordstrom anniversary sale

nordstrom anniversary sale my picks // sarah sherman samuelI don’t get too excited about many sales but the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is all kinds of good. Instead of an end of season sale, the prices are dropped on the new fall items! Now is the time to buy that new pair of shoes, outfit, earrings, bag, oh and home stuff too. ;) Here’s what I’ve got my eye on…

Colorblock Tank // Porcelain Jar // Fatigue Skinnies // Triangle Studs // Wool Waistcoat // Colorblock Pillow // tasa Sandals // Quilted Pillow // Bar Cart // Moscow Mule Mugs 

The Sale is on from July 17th – August 2… Happy Sale Shopping!

Style at Home with Cotton

Advertisementtstyle at home with cotton 10 // sarah sherman samuelOk, I may have gone over board with the crop tops lately but after being pregnant for what is almost an eternity in fashion land and not able to wear them without looking like Buddha, they have quickly become a wardrobe staple.

Being 100% cotton, it is a stylish mama’s best friend. The ease of care (with mess-ups bound to happen), the natural fibers, soft for mother and babe, and uncompromising on style as one of this season’s must haves.

I have to say they may not be your mother’s mom jeans but these high waisted beauties are on heavy rotation over here and surprise!… they are made of cotton.

white nights 3 ways

It’s a nice summer compliment to all the black in my wardrobe and while it may be trickier to go all white at night, I’ve teamed up with Target Style to show you how I’d rock the head to toe colorless look three different ways….

shop picks: steven alan

shop picks // steven alan // sarah sherman samuelI have a real soft spot for shop owners/curators that also branch out and create their own line (my heart will always be with product).  Steven Alan did just that and his namesake clothing line is a beautiful mix of simplicity and form. The SA shops are also still curated with unique designers that share a similar aesthetic and it is so easy to fall in love with each piece. Here are my top picks…

Poplin Dress  // Copper Bowl // Myra Mule // Natural Tote // Triangle Earrings // Fringe Blanket // Copper Candleholder // Panel Dress // Felt Coaster // Shinola Notebook // Clare V. Clutch // Coffee Cup 

 

style at home with solly baby

style-at-home-3I spent a day at home with the oh so lovely Elle, of Solly Baby, a few weeks back and we chatted about work, balance, design, inspiration, and motherhood while I put their wrap to use, lulling Archer right to sleep. You can check out the full interview on their blog today and I picked a few of my favorite images to share with you here…
