Things For Spring


So the dog days of winter are upon us and it’s time to not only start thinking spring but start shopping for spring.

So I too must follow suit and check out what’s in the stores to my liking.

And of course I found tons of things but all Dandi’s are on a budget of some kind so I did have to pull back and make smart choices.

Always take into account what you already have in your closet that you are excited to give a fresh look to for the new season.

And don’t forget to take into account any new activities that you want to start up or have over the winter.  Like these white shorts for me, since over the winter I took up tennis again.  These will be great to hit the courts in.

And so many of us are somehow still showing up at the gym since our New Year’s resolutions.  If you are feeling the need for a little incentive try buying yourself a new groovy bag to put your things in, that should keep you going for at least another month.

And though I truly have no more room in my closet for new shoes, they are a must.  If your budget will not allow for a lot of new things, I always find a great new pair of shoes will draw the eye off of the clothes you may be recycling from last year and make everything fresher.


Sometimes all we need is a little pick me up to accentuate our wardrobe but don’t know quite what it is.  Well if you can’t use another bow-tie or pocket square you can never go wrong with another pair of colorful, conversation starting socks.



Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

From what I am beginning to understand Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are some of the three most popular words to be put together in a sentence in the history of the world.

Hunter Boots

I even hear there are websites and blogs dedicated to sharing inside and covert information about what is actually going to be at this sale.

Frye and Adam Derrick

Well guess no more! I had the priviledge of being invited to an early preview and get a sneak peek behind the curtain (literally) and there are goodies galore!  The pictures you are seeing here are just some of the few delights that will await you in all Nordstrom stores and online starting July 20 – August 5th. (GO SHOP!)

AG and Citizens of Humanity

For you newbies wondering what the big deal is I’m here to tell you, you can purchase your entire fall wardrobe during this sale plus stock up on your favorite grooming products and save $100’s upon $100’s of dollars.  Not to mention you get the opportunity to experience some of that great service Nordstrom is known for.

Hugo Boss

I went home with some fabulous grooming products, from my absolutely favorite new facial cleaner – ‘purity made simple’ – I feel like I want to leave it on all day (don’t).  It really is the best cleaner I have had for my face, ever!  Since I am more the andro Dandi I also love the Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Brow Wiz’ which creates those precise lines and helps blend the brow.  Now that I think about it this can be used for masculine and feminine Dandi’s.

Diesel Jacket

And I love, love, love (did I mention that I love it!) the L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate.  Honestly I love all things L’Occitane so there is no contest here.

Okay, now back to clothes.

True Religion Cords

What you see here are my favorite picks.  However, there is so much more to choose from; Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, Kors, Klein, Cole Haan, La Mer…just to name a few.

7 Diamond

If you’ve never been this is something you cannot afford to miss.  If you haven’t been in awhile this year looks like it will make you a very happy and Dandi camper.  If you are a regular you don’t need me to convince you.

(My Favorites!)

A big thank you to Kelly Skahan for letting me and my sweetie preview this years Anniversary Sale.  We had a blast!

(Oh by the way, amazing news – Topshop and Topman coming to Nordstrom in September! (can you believe!?!)
