#NSale Finds

best-nordstrom-anniversary-sale-picks

Happy Wednesday, friends! I cannot believe we are already halfway through the week. No complaints here ;) By now, I'm sure everyone is aware that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access started last week. And since public access begins this Friday, I wanted to share with you a few of my wish list items that I picked up over the weekend. There were some items I was unable to find in store so I will be ordering a few things online. So without further ado, here are some of my favorite #NSale finds...

Quinoa Caprese Salad


Happy Tuesday! I know I've mentioned this before, but one of the things I dread most about the weekends is figuring out what I will make for the next week's lunch. I know, it sounds kind of silly, but it's always a big to-do in our house. Usually, I make my lunch for the work week during the weekend so that it is ready to go and there is little to no thinking when it comes to grabbing lunch each weekday morning. But, after eating the same thing for 5 consecutive days, I sometimes get bored, so I'm always trying to think of new lunch ideas that are not only filling, but also healthy.

Dress: J.Crew {most comfortable dress ever!} | Denim Jacket: J.Crew {last year, this season HERE} |  Bag: Mark and Graham c/o | Blush Flats: Nordstrom {just bought the new fall color HERE!} | Cuff: David Yurman | Watch: Kate Spade | Earrings: Nordstrom {currently on sale for $64 in the #NSale!} | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Lips: Snob, Turkish Delight

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I went to Nordstrom to check out and see in person some of my favorite pieces from the Anniversary Sale! I found so many great fall pieces, I'll be sharing a few of my favorite purchases later this week! But now, on to today's comfy, casual and cool outfit...

If you follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy}, this dress might look a little familiar. I actually wore it as part of the Fourth of July festivities a few weekends ago, but paired it with red accessories instead. I truly can't get enough of it! I have been wearing it non-stop, and with it's simple black and white colors, it's so fun to mix and match with different colors and accessories. I have worn it from casual Friday at work to the weekend, it's just SO comfortable. 

I bought these blush lace-up flats back in the spring and I'm still wearing them! I actually bought them in THIS neutral suede color over the weekend while I was at the #NSale. As for sizing: I went with my normal size {9.5} in the blush and I will say that as I have worn them, they have started to stretch out. They didn't have the new suede version in a 9.5 at my Nordstrom, so I tried on the 9 and it surprisingly fit perfectly?! Not sure how to explain this sizing issue, but I figure if the 9 was fitting brand new, it will probably stretch a bit just like the 9.5 did! 

One more #NSale note! My go-to {I pretty much wear them every.single.day} earrings that I am wearing here are also included in the sale! It's a great everyday earring and you can't beat the price!

Thanks so much for dropping by and have a great start to the week!

Overnight Oats: 3 Ways

how-to-make-overnight-oatsDuring the week, my breakfast situation is pretty predictable: double protein English muffins {literally, the best thing ever} or instant oatmeal. Both are quick and keep me relatively full until lunchtime. Although I do love my instant oatmeal, and it's quick cook time, it's not the same as real oatmeal.
