Trouve for Nordstrom

It’s no secret my one-stop shop is Nordstrom! Fashion, home, kids, gifts and the best white chocolate lemon cookie I’ve ever had. The cookie is seasonal but I’d like to start a petition to have them made year round..

Trouve is a brand at Nordstrom I trust. Versatile basics that don’t break the bank! I bought this sweater last week and have already worn in 3 different way. One way (as shown) with Trouve moto style leggings and my Joy Gryson bag, paired with cut-off jean shorts and flip flops for a night at the beach, and tucked into a skirt for a meeting in LA. Like I said, super versatile!

Bonus: now thru the 21st it’s Triple Points when you use your Nordstrom card!

jackets & jumpsuits

It’s the season for leather jackets and I couldn’t be more excited. There are so many options out right now. Even the faux leather options are gorgeous. Check them out below.

I’m in full soccer-mom mode, now that the kids are back in school. It’s already cold  in New York I need a jacket that will last me the next 8 months!  I decided to splurge on this leather  jacket. It will be great to throw over tee shirts and wear with jeans. I can also use it to dress up outfits for date night or work. I will pretty much be living in it!

Sequins For The Win

I bought these sequin joggers for myself last month and I love them! Fun, flashy sequins on the outside and lined in soft jersey cotton for maximum comfort!

What fall trends do you want us to feature? We’d love to know.

Vince Kids + back to school stress

I’m a long time fan of Vince for women and was super excited to see they now make clothes for kids! My kids appreciate how soft the cotton is and have asked a few times if they can wear the tees to bed because they are so cozy. Avery chose the moto style jean for her look. Oh man, they are amazing!! By far the coolest jeans I’ve ever bought my girls. We’re loving the Vince kids line in a pretty big way and lucky for you lots of items are now on sale!

What I’m not loving is the stress of back-to-school. This is the first year all three girls are in school. Here’s the rundown:

Avery: totally cool with it. Even though she didn’t end up with any of her friends from last year in her class she’s happy to go and makes the most of it. Wakes up on time, helps make lunches and doesn’t complain.

Poppy: this is the first year Poppy has come home from school saying she “loved it”! This is big for Poppy. I mean she still wakes up each morning telling me that if I loved her I would let her sleep in and homeschool her, but she has come home excited each day. Like I said, this is a big deal for Poppy and it makes my life a lot easier.

Goldie: ..and then we have Gold. Talk about major separation anxiety. This is Goldies 1st year away from me. She was SO excited for school to start and the moment it did she was totally over the idea. Her teacher told me she sits at her table crying and draws pictures of me instead of playing. She keeps this drawing of me in her backpack and I’m certain her teacher, who has no idea what I do thinks I’m a total narcissist because of it. They even had to pull Avery out of class to console her. I’m trying to practice some tough love or just think of really good bribery…

Working the Plaids

I can’t get enough of plaids right now. Wear them tucked into denim or tied around your waist. It’s a really good way to spruce up any outfit. Check out some of my favorites.



Leather Track Pants

Nordstrom is definitely my favorite  place to shop. I’m always discovering new brands and designers within Nordstrom like Chelsea 28 and Ro + De.  They offer really great pieces that are now staples in my closet. Like the white silk blouse I’m wearing below with these leather track pants from Trouve . I knew they would be big for fall and they are really comfortable like any other track pant. I love that they are leather!

I’ve had babies and bumps on my mind all month. Well to be honest probably the last 6 months.  My sister is pregnant with her number 3! I’m so excited for her. Most of you who read this blog know that I have 3 kids. I had all three of them in 3.5 years.  The best and craziest years of my life! My favorite moments in my life are the days in the hospital with my newborn babies. There isn’t anything better. It’s heaven on earth. To my little sister, Kristen, I’m so excited for the new baby to come! I can’t wait to get my baby fix.

Helen Ficalora Beverly Hills

Walking into the Helen Ficalora store in Beverly Hills yesterday was nostalgic for me. I first walked in that same store almost 8 years ago while on a girls trip and bought my first piece from Helen. Her pieces are classic and timeless. The necklace I chose 8 years ago is still as relevant today as it was back then. The Helen Ficalora collection has expanded adding new and exciting pieces like the two rings I chose. I’m in love with these thin stacking bands, one turquoise and one diamond. To order from Helen Ficalora call: 1-877-754-2676

Friday 5 Header-Lisa lisafri5

1. I love the idea of a nude heel with an unexpected element like these Kenneth Cole sandals! Perfect to pair with your favorite little black dress.

2. These Joie track pants are amazing!! From day to night they simply do not disappoint.

3. This Anthropologie blouse reminds me of two things: fall and a $300 Tucker top I wanted a few month’s back. Feeling pretty good that I waited and can get this for half the price.

4. I love embellished jackets! They add a little something special to my standard tee and jeans and are a great piece to transition a summer dress into fall and winter.

5. We’re big fans of eberjay pi’s here at L&L. The quality and softness of the fabric make you want to stay in bed all day. I’m serious. You will love them! Great gift to give and receive too.

1.  Have you seen the new PIPERLIME collection? It’s to die for and the price point is great too. This metallic maxi skirt is so fun. I wore it with a tee-shirt and plan to dress it up for date night. It’s going fast! I also bought the black jumpsuit and just saw that only XS is left. Everything is selling out!

2. Now that it’s cooling off I need a basic white tee with longer sleeves. This is it! It’s comfy and made by one of my favorite designers.

3. I love crystal necklaces with gold hardware. I just found this one in the BP dept. at Nordstrom and it’s under $30!! It’s so pretty and looks like my other necklaces that I paid way too much for. I love deals like this.

4. Sam Edelman always designs the perfect heel. I’m looking for a pair of burgandy heels for fall. These are it! I love the ankle cut outs. So pretty and they definitely are unique.

5. These stopped me dead in my tracks. The blue is so pretty. I feel like I’m collecting these Zella active wear leggings. They really are the absolute best.
