RESTOCK ALERT: Asymmetrical Sweaters, Cutouts, and more!

When I saw this sweater on Nordstrom last week I knew I had to have it.  It sold out quickly but is restocked now on Nordstrom.

The perfect pairing is with some stilettos and leggings, but I have also seen some great casual-chic looks with sneakers and jeans as well.  This sweater comes in three colors and is super flattering on every figure. 

Shop all my looks here.

STK Atlanta Power Lunch Experience

In the middle of a workday in the heart of Buckhead, I stopped into STK Atlanta between meetings for a Power Lunch with my friends.  STK Atlanta “artfully blends the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge into one, offering a dynamic, fine dining experience with the superior quality of a traditional steakhouse.”

As soon as you walk in, you instantly feel like you are someone special.

Check out my review on Trip Advisor here.

With a combination of a stylish dining space and signature menu, STK does not disappoint and is sure to impress.

Check out this beautiful gallery of photos, and then, of course, there is the FOOD!

The Power Lunch menu is genuinely an experience designed for working lunches as well as business meetings.  $45 for a 45-minute 3-course dining experience is such a great deal and also so delicious.  Check out the menu below.

Our bartender carefully crafted some of the most divine cocktails.  I highly recommend the Fever-Tree Gin and Tonic infused with botanicals; it is a one-of-a-kind twist on a traditional drink.

Thank you so much to STK Manager Neal Alves and the team at Caren West for the opportunity to dine and share my experience at STK Atlanta.  I will be back!  Check out their full menu online here and also their special events spaces for parties and meetings.

Tomorrow, July 28th, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to EVERYone. As always, you can save a lot of money each year by shopping for high-quality fashion brands for less during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

This year is no different; with Fall around the corner, now is a great time to buy fun pieces to layer up or style once the temps cool down a little bit.

I have always share looks that I shop and wear year over year.  From my favorite cutouts to date night dresses, this year, the sales look great!  As always, scoop these pieces up quickly as they tend to sell out quickly!

The Freedom to be Happy

A happy consequence of these past few years has been the time to step away from all of life’s distractions and really focus on ME.  I spent many hours reflecting on personal and professional goals.  About 5 years ago, I stepped away from my full-time job as a Development Specialist for a non-profit agency to pursue the blog.  Giving Chicks And Salsa all my attention really allowed me the freedom to challenge myself in a way I had never done before.  I had to be specific about my goals and direction.  Without discipline, I knew I would end up disappointed.  So on this journey, there were some pivotal lessons that I have learned that I wanted to share. 

GIVE YOURSELF THE FREEDOM TO BE HAPPY

Don’t Fear Tomorrow

I used to fear the future chronically.  I took a risk, and the destination was unknown.  Learning lesson #2 is what made me look forward to tomorrow rather than fear it.

Ride The Wave

From my first post to my first collaboration to the start of Digital Chicks Media, any time an opportunity was presented, I said yes and turned wherever the tide took me.  This ended up being a rewarding and winning strategy.  

Own Your Story

I had heard about owning your story when I attended the Style Collective conference early on. In paving my own path, I got to know my story better than ever.  I had become my own boss and made every little and big decision along the way. Being intimately involved with my destiny made me own that story in a way I never had before.

It may sound cheesy, but manifestation works, and it took a global pandemic to make me step back to see what I wanted from my life clearly.  This post would not be complete without a shout-out to my favorite and life-changing book, The Celestine Prophecy. This book is more than a novel; it is a blueprint on how to pay attention to the signals in the universe.  The book so accurately describes nature’s way of putting us on a path that once you see the signs, there is so much that the universe reveals to you. 

If you made this far into my post, I hope you found some of this in some way motivational or inspiring.  Thank you for being part of my tribe.

Your Chick,

Rina
