Some weeks seem longer than others and this one has dragged interminably. I can’t wait for the weekend! There isn’t enough Advil for my aching back and I’m covered with bruises. Mr. AWSL and I have put the cart before the horse and started packing. We have no idea where we’re moving yet but why wait…right? Seriously, the house needed painting before we put it on the market and now seemed as good a time as ever since we’re grounded with a damaged RV and no idea when the repairs will be finished. We’ve moved all the furniture out (hence the sore back) to prepare for the painter. He plans to work all weekend so I hope to read and nothing else.
In an effort to get out of the heat, and too much heavy lifting 🙂 I went to Nordstrom in search of linen and loose clothes.
This blouse from Sanctuary is in a lightweight gauzy fabric and would feel very cool on hot days. I passed because it seemed too trendy to me now. That’s the problem with trends, they come and go so fast, I lose interest very easily.
I liked this linen dress by Caslon and thought it would feel very cool on super hot days. This picture doesn’t show the color properly (gotta love those dressing room lights) it’s a pretty blue and white stripe. This regular was too long and felt Mother Hubbardish so I ordered it in petite to see if that proportion looks better.
There were lots of other things I liked but honestly didn’t have the energy to keep changing clothes so have continued my quest online with the comfort of a heating pad on my back.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong with some “forever type” Eileen Fisher pieces included. These velvet jeans will be fabulous to wear around the holidays season but will be back to full price, long before then.
Macy’s is giving an extra 20% off with the code WKND.
Neiman Marcus Last Call is giving an extra 30-50% off summer styles. They have some great linen on sale too!
Ann Taylor is having their semi-annual sale and giving up to 70% off all sale styles.
This weekend can’t come soon enough for me. Do you have any fun plans?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
