This Playlist Will Make You Want to Travel to Muscle Shoals

Alabama Hills, Muscle Shoals playlist

Some of my all time favorite songs and musicians recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabaham. Everyone from Lynard Skynard to the Rolling Stones. Aretha Franklin wrote, produced and recorded her biggest hits down south. It is a magical place I am looking forward to visiting one day soon. It was said, that if you listen closely, the stream in Muscle Shoals sings. Some say that’s why some of the biggest hits came from the area. Each song recorded in Muscle Shoals has a really distinct, southern funk. It can be heard the best in Brown Sugar by the Rolling Stones and Simple Man By Lynard Skynard.

The Blogger Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide

Today’s post is a fun way to see what exactly is worth buying this season from the point of a fashion blogger. With over 3000 items that just went on sale, it can be hard to see everything. That’s why I did it for you! Seriously, this makes me so happy to help find the right pieces just for you. These are pieces I would wear and I know fellow bloggers would rock as well.

After hours looking, the biggest pieces this year to stock up on are boots, booties, jeans, and cardigans. Especially really long cardigans. See how I styled them last season, which btw are going to be super hot this fall! Fall is also my favorite season, so you see how this just plays into my absolute love for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

My top picks from the sale

I made a conscious effort to gather as many picks that are budget friendly (below $250), wearable all season long, closet essentials, and a bit of fun. I wanted to provide options that are practical as well as stylish. The biggest question I always ask myself during these kinds of mega sales is, “Can I live in this piece?” If the answer is yes, then it goes straight into the cart. Try asking yourself a similar question while browsing the sale! It helps with finding wardrobe staples you’ll absolutely love!

I said yes to obligations because I truly didn’t know how to say no. My time was no longer mine. If this makes sense to you, keep reading…
