Michael and I have been little nomads for the past few weeks (and I’m totally okay with it!). We flew to California and stayed there for 10 days to buy a home. Then we flew back to Virginia and were there for a week before we drove to Ohio and were there for a week. And now we’ll spend a week in Kentucky! TBH I kind of love living out of a suitcase. Then in a couple short weeks we’ll be packing up all our belongings in Virginia and will make the cross country drive to California.

So. In light of all the flying/driving we’ve been doing I treated myself to a couple of athleisure pieces. I caved and bought my first pair of lulu lemon leggings. For years I’ve heard all the hype about them but was always so hesitant because of the price tag ($100 for leggings??). Initial thoughts: they’re totally worth it and I wish I’d bought a pair years earlier. They’re very flattering and the high waist is really comfortable. But the biggest reason I love them is because they come in a tall size. For me it’s been nearly impossible to find a legging that goes down to my ankles but these do. If you’re thinking about getting the tall size I’d definitely go into the store though and try them on.

Okay and then I also picked up this sweatshirt which may or may not be the softest thing I own at the moment. It’s actually supposed to be a pajama top but I’m like no this is so cute I have to wear it out in the world.

I’ll probably be picking up a few more cozy pieces for our cross country drive at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that’s coming up — which is the sale everyone freaks out. It’s my favorite sale of the year because it’s new items that are discounted (not ones that are on their way out of stores). Once the sale ends the items will go up to full price again. I’m hosting a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale giveaway with some blogger friends below — make sure you enter below it’s super easy!! The giveaway will run for two weeks.
