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.
As the temperatures cool, this sweater offers more than just style, it is super warm as well with its blend of acrylic, polyester, and nylon. ASTR has so many trendy sweaters that will set you up perfectly for the Fall and Winter.
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!
Here are some affordable pieces that you will be glad you shopped for less, trust me!
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.
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.
I chase life through experiences; I always have. I love to ride whatever wave comes my way. As I get older, I get more passionate about these experiences and share them with the ones I love most, my family. Atlanta has been home to me for almost 10 years, and this city never fails to disappoint. There is always something literally POPPING up. There is always something exciting to see and do, from the Winky Lux installation to Slime City, the Selfie Museum, the Van Gogh exhibit, and now Candytopia.
The excitement of a temporary installation is totally different from traditional museums that you put on your list to visit eventually. I need the pressure to get things done in life and at work (I live for deadlines).
With so many things to do in Atlanta at any given time, be sure to check these two Pop-Ups happening now before they are gone. The Illuminarium is next on my list!
I HIGHLY recommend this experience to everyone. The Van Gogh exhibit is a truly a unique artist profile has an immersive exhibit that is unlike anything I have ever experienced and a well-coordinated virtual reality experience. Get tickets for this event here.
This family-friendly pop-up was a HUGE hit with the kids. After reading this review, I knew I had to take them. This was a fun visit with a very Willy Wonka vibe and statues made 100% of candy. They also have a photosystem set up with QR codes that allow professional photos taken during your visit to be sent directly to your phone for free.

Here is my video with a few other (not pop up) Atlanta favorites.
