Nordstrom is having their Half-Yearly Sale with markdowns up to 40% including clothing, shoes, accessories and some beauty items. I spotted these two White Shirt Alternatives, on the left from Ella Moss, and on the right from L’Agence (yes, it has sheer panels, but you could easily add a nude camisole underneath without losing the effect).
I’m granting myself a couple of weeks to catch up with some errands and small projects around the house before I try to put myself on any kind of writing schedule. I’ve enjoyed being able to do my grocery shopping mid-morning when the market is relatively empty, and to be able to pause and peruse a new shop or two that caught my eye without worrying about the clock.
Yesterday I went over to the Kit + Ace shop on Abbott Kinney to drop off the pants I’d ordered online, and take advantage of their free hemming service. I spent a few minutes looking around the store but find I’m lukewarm on many of their styles, perhaps a bit too “athleisure” for me, though I know many people love them. The store staff though were friendly and helpful.
On my way back to the car I stopped in at Caudalie to pick up another travel-sized Beauty Elixir, and spotted this “Favorites” set of travel-sized products which I may get on my next visit. They offer many of their products singularly in convenient travel sizes which are not only great for packing, but also a good way to try new products for a more extended period without making a major commitment. I also learned that Caudalie has a spa at this location, and am going to schedule a facial before we travel.
I’d been meaning to swing by the Warby Parker store to try on some eyeglass frames, and had fun playing with different styles. I have a small head and a narrow face, so I like that they display frames by width, which makes it easy to know which styles will work best. No I didn’t come home with these…
though I was very tempted by another style with a colored, bold frame and blue lenses. I have plenty of sunglasses at this point, but have been looking for a new pair of optical frames that are different from any I already have. I’ve had several requests over the years to do a post on eyewear, so look for something soon.
And in other news, I’ve begun taking the dogs out for a second walk in the late afternoons, which is good for all of us. 🙂
