The Roaring 20's

On Saturday, August 1st the first Jazz Age on the Delaware Event will happen from 12 to 5 pm. It's a chance to take a step back in time and experience the roaring 20's. The Glen Foerd Manison is the fitting location where guests will be able to enjoy live entertainment, dancing, dance lessons, vintage libations, era-inspired noshes, elegant picnics, antique cars, mansion tours, period style, pie baking contest and much more. If you're attending this event, you might be a little stuck on what to wear or where to find it. Here are a few ideas you can find at your local mall.

The Nordstrom Sale officially starts on July 17, but if you're one of their cardholders you'll get early access to shop great prices right now! Here are four reasons why you'll definitely want to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
I've been obsessing over the new One Eleven Collection from Express. If you know me, you know I'm all about a soft and comfy tee and these are definitely on my list. Ranging in price from $14.90 for tanks and bralettes to $39.90 for a long sleeve extreme high low shirt, there's something here for everyone's budget. Another thing that makes this collection so irresitible is the layering possibilities. Try a strappy bralette under a loose fitting tank or try that same tank under their double v-neck tunic tee. Just so you know, I'll probably be making a stop in Express before the weekend.

My son is obsessed with sharks, so of course we're celebrating Shark Week!
