Listen to the Music + A Giveaway

Navy Tie Front Dress | White Camisole | White Studded Pumps | Beaded Clutch | White Stone Earrings (similar)

Music has always played such an important part of my life. For as long as I can remember, I was doing something musical. My parents knew music was a strong part of me and helped me embrace it when I was growing up. In first grade, they put me in group piano lessons as an after school activity and my passion for music continually grew throughout my childhood, teens and early adult life. Although I don’t play piano or sing formally anymore, I still have a strong connection and love for music.

When Lauren and I happened upon this piano while shooting this preppy chic dress from the Gal Meets Glam collection, I knew we had to snag a few pics to commemorate the hours I spent behind the keys when I was younger. Maybe, I’ll pick it back up someday?!? You never know…

Let’s talk about this dress – I have worn this dress multiple times since Julia from Gal Meets Glam released it in May. I always love to see other bloggers/influencers design collections and this one spoke to me because of it’s chic, preppy designs. Plus, the line is offered up to a size 20!! This dress is extremely comfortable and is so versatile – it can be worn to work, to brunch, to a bridal shower or even on date night! What more could a girl ask for?!? 😀

When I did my initial Nordstrom Sale roundup, I totally forgot to include the Home decor items I am absolutely loving and cant’ wait to get my hands on! Here’s my top three picks I’m going to be snagging while they are on sale.

  1. Luxurious and Chic Duvet Cover – A stunning duvet cover is an essential in my apartment and this cream, linen one from Lili Alessandra is the perfect weight for the Texas heat in the summer or to keep me warm in the winter.
  2. Gold Wine Rack – Who doesn’t love to display the wine they are about to drink? hehe, but I’m seriously loving this gold wine rack that can fit into any space (including my small apartment)
  3. Adorable Jewelry Box – In both gold and black, this jewelry box looks gorgeous on a dresser, helps keep my favorites organized and makes the perfect gift.

Now, to the part y’all all have been waiting for…
