Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prep


OH. EM. GEE!
It's almost time for the best sale EVER.
And I'm not exaggerating!
This is hands down my favorite sale of the entire year because the savings is incredible on NEW items for fall.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens every July and is full of some amazing deals on some great new fall styles including boots, handbags, sweaters, coats & beauty items. 
The anniversary catalog dropped online & in stores on Monday and it did not disappoint. There are already SO many fall pieces that I can't wait to get my hands on.
Just wait till you see it.....the shoe selection is SO GOOD.

Summer Stripes with Banana Republic


If you've followed me for some time now, you know I love stripes. 
Nautical striped tees, tanks, blazers, dresses....How many striped wardrobe pieces can one person own?!? (Asking for a friend).
 I've styled stripes on here before, but now that summer is here and simple casual dresses are my jam, I thought I would show you one of my favorite new striped dresses for the season.

Travel Guide: Monterey With A Baby

 

One of the first trips that Bryan & I took together while we were dating was a weekend getaway to Monterey. It's a short two hours from the Bay Area, so it's a great spot to adventure for the weekend and the perfect spot to visit if you want to get your coastal vibes fix.
We visit now about once or twice a year and it's still to this day one of our favorite getaway spots. 

For the past 5 years, we've only had to worry about the two of us on this trip, so we knew that adding little Eloise into the mix was going to change a few things (goodbye late night bar hopping!)

I already have a great travel guide on Monterey & Carmel that you can read here so I thought that this time around, I would share how it was a little different with a baby.

Eloise's Four Month Schedule


Yes.
You read that right.
FOUR MONTHS!

Sweet Eloise turned four months yesterday and it's honestly been the best four months of our lives. Don't get me wrong, we have our days (everyone does) but what an amazing experience it is to see such a little person that you created, grow and discover the world from day to day. Also, those big belly laughs?! THE BEST.

If you are new to this blog, welcome! Every two months, I'll be doing an "Eloise update" on here, letting you know her favorites, her schedule and just any other information I think might be helpful for any other moms out there. Now, let me tell you....I'm not saying that everything I'm doing is right, and I FOR SURE don't know everything, but if you are pregnant or your little one is the same age as Eloise, you might find these posts helpful! I love hearing from other moms and how they are doing it, as it's fun to compare notes, learn some things and find some new products your little might love!

Cheers to Change


I've got some super exciting news to share with you guys today but I first off have to start out by saying THANK YOU. 
I know I thank you guys a lot, but honestly, this little blog would be nothing without you guys stopping in, reading and shopping my links. It just wouldn't.

When I started this blog, it was mostly because of travel itineraries. Since Bryan & I travel quite frequently, people would always message me asking for travel tips and guides for certain cities. I would keep a notepad on my phone with every place we visited, top places to eat in that certain city and things to do, so that when someone messaged me for details, I could just send them the note on my phone.
After a year of doing that, I thought to myself, "how awesome would it be if I had a little spot on the internet to put these notes out there so that anyone could hop on at anytime and look up travel guides and travel tips themselves?!" 
About a month later, Ashleydonielle.com was created.
