A Yellow Dress for Summer

July 23, 2019

the prettiest yellow dresses for summer - M Loves M @marmar

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We did some birthday celebrating for my favorite guy which included dinner at cucina enoteca! It’s a local Italian restaurant that a lot of people have recommended to us and it was so good! They had a dish that I always get whenever I see it on a menu: ricotta-stuffed fried squash blossoms. Maybe that sounds weird but let me tell you, they are so delicious. Zucchini squash blossoms are usually in season during the summer so I take advantage when I can! I feel like this weekend included a lot of yummy but kind of unhealthy eating {I say this as I’m eating a Sprinkles cupcake and brownie} so I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to our regular healthyish routine. I think this beet and apple detox salad needs to be on my menu list!

I wore this yellow dress over the weekend and got lots of compliments on it. Yellow is such a happy color and I can’t help but feel the same whenever I wear it!


The Truth About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

what you should know about the nordstrom anniversary sale - M Loves M @marmar

Let’s be honest, how many of you are a little overwhelmed with all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts? I’ll be honest, I totally am and it’s a part of my job. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a good sale and Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers. I just feel like all the sales going on lately have left me feeling like I need much more than I actually do. It can be so easy to get sucked into thinking you need a whole new wardrobe when I’m sure the clothes you have are more than sufficient. A part of my job is to share my favorite style picks with you but I never want you to think that you absolutely need something if maybe you don’t. Personally, I’ve been much more selective about what I’ve been buying lately and I thought I’d share a little secret I’ve picked up over the past several years of covering the sale. While I do have a list of 8 things I’m buying which I’ll share with you below, the truth about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is something I don’t think many people realize, and most bloggers definitely won’t tell you!


Augustine’s Big Boy Room

My toddler loves his big boy room! - M Loves M

I’m so happy to finally be sharing these photos of Augustine’s big boy room! We were luckily able to transition him into his big boy bed before Corinna’s arrival which was incredibly helpful. In case you missed it, here were our tips for making the transition from crib to twin bed. I really loved having Augustine be a part of making this room his own and I’m so happy with how it turned out! It has a little bit of a camping/Americana feel. More photos of this cutie in his big boy room and all the sources below!
