SO Obsessed Sunday - August 3 Edition


Happy, happy Sunday!!!! I'm writing from the train where I'm covering four states in over 9 hours today, phew! I actually don't mind train rides and would much prefer this over driving today, especially considering that I'm in recovery mode from a fun weekend in Tybee Island and Savannah, GA for a bachelorette party. 
So, what are you obsessing over lately? If you're like me, you are getting a little giddy over the thought of college football, crisp weather, pumpkin spice and apple donuts BUT, the thought of summer fading away is a little sad too, so I want to milk these last days for all its worth! This is why you'll see a lot of my obsessions this weekend centering around bright colors and summer fun...

First up, the Nordstrom sale may end tomorrow, but I'm loving this dress from Nordstrom that is a completely reasonable price at $48 even though it's not in the sale. I would love to round out my summer in this cutie:
Second, I saw this Insta post from Lulu and Georgia and about died, how cute is this setting?! My favorite detail (outside of the table runner!) is one that is a little hard to see, notice the lucite place holder with the script decal? 

Entertaining in summer is my favorite and I have rose colored glasses (hehe) that were my great-grandmother's, I'm thinking I need that gold silverware (goldware?) to go with those glasses, don't ya think?! Go follow their Insta and check out all their amazing rugs and home furnishings too if you haven't!
Next up are some of my favorites from the new Stella and Dot line! I've always been a big fan and am actually hosting a party this week (so yes, this is a little bit of a shameless plug :)). There are lots of new arrivals, but these are four on my wish list...

I am SO obsessed with this silver statement necklace that has teardrop petals of crystal and pinks! The chunky chain adds an edge, I can just see it now paired with a simple white tee, ripped up jean shorts and black gladiator sandals for the summer!
This is another favorite statement necklace with all the color and amazing detail!
I love versatile pieces and these chandelier earrings detach and become studs too, how cool is that?!
I've always loved the Rebel Pendant, but now they have it in rose gold and I'm super obsessed! These are the type of necklaces I wear the most because my wardrobe consists of lots of color and prints and having simple but chic jewelry comes in handy.
Last but not least, I probably won't be purchasing anything because as you know, I'm trying to just say no to impulse purchases, but if I was, I would totally hit up the Zara sale going on right now! Here are some of my favorites. Refinery29 also does a great job of sharing a wider selection of awesome pieces here.
 
     
Flower print dress - now $35.99, was $79.90; Floral print shorts - now $19.99, was $49.90; Printed cami - now $29.99, was $69.90; Ripped trousers - now $29.99, was $79.90

Coming up this week, I can't wait to share some of the bachelorette fun we had this weekend and I got a very exciting mail delivery while I was gone - my new Erin Condren life planner that I talked about two Sundays ago is here and I'll be sharing that with you too! 

Yes, my husband took a pic and sent it to me while I was gone, even he knows how much I've been looking forward to this arriving...
