Travel Tuesday with Cabana Life, Ft. Lauderdale Edition

Do y'all ever want to take a trip to the beach, but also have other amenities nearby? I love the beach, but sometimes its nice to have other attractions nearby if the weather doesn't cooperate or your little ones want a chance of scenery. Ft. Lauderdale is great for its beaches, nearby attractions and known for shopping/dining on Las Olas Boulevard.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Early Access

It's that time of year (again), when all you see are bloggers talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I scanned through the early access items and picked items that are staples, rather than adding everything and anything that you will most likely see from another account. I love to add new Fall/Winter pieces that will last through the years and not feel like I am breaking the bank, que the amazing prices. I know its still Summer, but think Christmas in July, so why not splurge a bit and dream about sipping your Pumpkin Spice Latte in cooler temps. I'll be dreaming as I live in the Sunshine State.

Zen - Mom/Mini Athleisure Style

Anyone else finding it difficult to balance the every day chaos of Summer... children are home from school, schedules are blown out the door and the balance of household chores and playtime never align. It might seem a little silly, but sometimes all you need is a pick-me-up to change your outlook or take on the day. I felt an inner zen, when I got dressed in my newest athleisure wear from Island Time Palm Beach, how could you not smile when your littlest claps, gives the sweetest smile and says, "yeaaaahhh, I look just like Mommy, and we are matching."

Summer Dress stylin with Ann Taylor

I love a perfect Summer dress that is versatile for many occasions. The "it" dress in your closet that can be worn many ways + to many occasions. Invest in one piece and then accessorize depending on your achieved look. Are you headed to a graduation, day date with your children, meetings or a bbq? I've got a look for you that checks the box to all of the above.

I've been in your shoes, its not an easy task & certainly can get messy real quick.
