Links + What I’m Loving

Today I am sharing some of my favorite items that I have purchased over the past few weeks, the sales, and some adorable and functional handbags that I think you’re going to love! I haven’t made a post of Links + Loves lately, and I think it is high time that I hopped back on it. Some items are my favorite items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that will be open to the public on the 28th, so go ahead and favorite what you like because they will get gone quick. I’m including hair and a variety of other things today also, Hope you enjoy!

I have shared the Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector before, and I am going to share it again because it is something every woman over 40 needs in their arsenal. As a former hairstylist, I know firsthand how coloring or bleaching your hair can damage it over time. So whether you are going through menopause, have chlorine damage, or your hair is just not as healthy as it was in your younger years from aging – this little bottle can change your hair! It will strengthen your hair, help with breakage, make your hair thicker and healthy. Use 1x per week for damaged hair, I would recommend using it 2-3x’s a week, then once a week to maintain. See the Before and After photos below to see the difference it can make. With over 416K ❤️’s, you can bet this product works! Find it at Sephora on sale for $28 here. See the 3-step (shampoo, conditioner, and perfector) system here.

These before and after pictures are from an actual Olaplex customer. To see the changes in her hair is a pretty good idea of how great this product is. I wish I had thought about the Before & Afters! This is one of the best products I have used to strengthen, repair (and prevent) damage. The bonds in the product are designed to hold together the keratin fibers that make up your hair, so breakage will be minimal. See the Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector here.

Fall is just around the corner, and if your community is like mine, as soon as the temperature drops just a tad, the boots and cardigans will come out, lol! I love the feel of this Gibsonlook everyday v-neck lounge sweater and I picked it up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It fits very relaxed, and it’s so soft, comes in multiple colors, and fits TTS. Remember, this is a relaxed fit. You can see the top here. If you are a cardholder, you can get early access to the sale – otherwise, the sale will be open to the public on the 28th. The sale is really huge, and I have been sifting through items over the past few weeks. I tried to pick items that were truly a great deal or items trending this fall. Scroll all the way down to see my picks for beauty, athleisure, shoes, and more.

If you are not a cardholder, no worries…I found a few sweaters that are nearly identical. This lightweight v-neck sweater is from Banana Republic Factory and is on sale for $14! Another option is this v-neck soft tee that is also on sale for only $14. My taupe Chelsea Boots are a new addition and I’m not going to lie girls, these are totally worth a try. The Lug bottom boots are going to be huge this fall and winter and will be hard to find eventually. The spring in these boots when you walk is phenomenal! I have to have comfortable shoes, and these fit the bill! See the boots here.

Outfit Details: // Sweater (I am wearing a medium) // Shorts // Cropped Jeans (wearing a size 10) // Cognac Slides // Chelsea Boots // Fedora

I found this gorgeous classic white blazer at Talbots and let’s just say I am super happy with my purchase! This linen blazer is normally $169, but it’s on sale right now during their BIG Sale for only $66! It is a quality piece and the markdown made my credit card so happy, ha! I love Talbots, but they are a little more expensive, but the pieces are very well made and will last for years, especially the jackets and jeans! See the blazer here, I am wearing a size 10 for reference. My jeans are from Old Navy and are the mid-rise slim straight jeans. These are perfect straight jeans that hit right at the ankle. Get an extra 20% off with code SWEET. See the jeans here. ** Joggers are on sale for $14 today, check those out here.

These shoes are my new faves, I started clearing out my older sandals and heels and put these right up from in the closet, haha! I bought my regular size in all the slides and mules. The Steve Madden Finn Chain mule will be the “it” mule of the season, I have already figured that out because these are hard to find. I am linking similar mules and other faves below.

Shoes: // Mules // Slides // Heels

Who remembers this bag from a few weeks ago? I am totally obsessed with this convertible bag and I told you girls that I was talking with the Modern + Chic Boutique to collaborate with them. So…I now have a 20% code that you can use at any time and on anything! This bag has been my go-to and has plenty of pockets for all my stuff, not to mention the bag straps are so cute and trendy. I recently ordered more, so I will be sharing more faves soon. Shop wallets, bags, shoes, clothing, and more here. Use code BEVERLY20 at the end of checkout to grab that discount!

More of my faves from Modern + Chic are below! All the bags, shoes, and apparel comes in multiple colors and patterns. You can see all the bags, cosmetic bags, and weekender travel bags here.

I have been trying to get back into my daily walk and back on the FASTer Way To Fat Loss program (a new round starts Aug 2) for the past few weeks. I have not done as well as I would like, but as Barry and Mom get better, I will be able to get back on my normal schedule. Barry turned me on to the ON Cloudflow 2.0 running/walking sneakers. He is a sneaker fanatic, and I noticed he keeps wearing his ON sneakers the most, so I decided to try them out. Yes…they are TOTALLY worth it! They fit TTS, and you literally feel like you are walking on clouds. They are perfect for walking in or if you are on your feet a lot, I totally recommend them. I have had these on my feet since I got them and I am a total fan now! Mine are white and aloe, which are very hard to find, but I found a few and linked them in the carousel below.

    The Olaplex is phenomenal for natural curls too! My stylist uses it in my hair & she suggested I purchase it to use in between my appointments.

    Thank you for featuring affordable items from the Nordstrom sale. Plus cute, on trend & good for more than one season.
