Jumpsuits for Life

If there is one trend I'll be holding onto for dear life... it's jumpsuits.

I snagged this one at Target for a steal and was SO sad to see it's already sold out! However, I linked some similar options and if you need more than that I'M YOUR GIRL. Seriously. If you need help finding just the right jumpsuit, I got you! Just shoot me a message.

In other news, summer feels like it's quickly reaching an end, so I'm trying to soak up as much of it as I can while it's still here! We took a quick vacay to Southern California (my 3rd time this year, I clearly can't get enough) for a family reunion in San Diego & to Disneyland! I posted some pics on Instagram if you're interested, but basically it was a blast. We did 3 full days at the beach and one day at Disney that didn't feel like enough.
My kiddos start school in a few WEEKS and that's blowing my mind. So bring on all the pool trips, park visits, and lazy days until our hectic schedule begins!

How's your summer looking?


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE! If you're a vet of the Nordy's sale, scroll on down to take a peek at the photos & links for where to find everything! 

If you're new to the sale here's the gist of it:
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is LE-GEN-DARY. It's when Nordstrom releases all of their upcoming fall styles for a huge discount! So before they're even put out on the shelves for the season you can snag them at a steal of a deal. Nordstrom carries a variety of high quality items and it's most definitely the time to stock up if there's anything your wardrobe needs. Right now is EARLY ACCESS, which means it's open only to those who have a Nordstrom credit or debit card. Public access will begin July 20th!

I've selected my top picks from the sale! Everything is under $120 and what I consider to be a great deal. Above & below you'll find things I plan to buy, wish I could buy, or have already purchased. I'll be updating this post throughout the sale to keep up with sold out items, restocks, new items I find, etc. so keep checking back for the most up-to-date info!

Swim Week: Day 4

Swim Week post 4 is here and it's last installment of my JIRL Swim Week series! If you haven't seen the previous posts in this series, you can find them HERE, HERE, and HERE.
I have been on the hunt for the very best in swimwear and I'm sharing the brands and styles that are 100% hitting the mark in terms of gorgeous styles, flattering fits, inclusive branding, and empowering women! I want to help YOU feel confident in your swimwear this summer and I hope you've found that inspiration throughout this series!

Today's style is my second suit from Lime Ricki! I've already shared my love for this company on my Day 2 post, but wanted to make sure & share another style of theirs that I can't get enough of.

When you're shopping online for swimwear, it's important to know the go-to styles that will look good on your body type. One style that I feel is universally flattering to women of several shapes & sizes is ruched stitching! I've shared 3 ruched pieces with you now, so it's clear I'm a fan. Ruching is the gathered style you see on my top here that helps to flatten & disguise any features that I don't want highlighted.
Another go-to element for me in swimwear is a tankini two piece, and the length on this one is just perfect! Tankinis like this are just an easy style that looks good on everyone. It's not daring by any means, but when I'm shopping online & can't try swimwear on in person it's such a solid fallback style. If you're shorter like me you won't get the weird bunching one pieces can sometimes create AND you won't have to worry about where the tops/bottoms will hit because they'll just overlap & cover your whole torso area.

I hope you've enjoyed this swim week series & that you feel more empowered to wear what makes you feel confident at the pool or beach this summer! I'd love for you to share your swimwear wins with me throughout the rest of the season... anytime you find a style that makes you feel confident & like the beautiful woman that you are! Feel free to DM me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/janelleinreallife) and with your permission I'll share you on my stories!
