Nordstrom Finds For Summer

It's not all thrift shopping all the time for me (though I do love a great buy at the thrift store!)
Nordstrom had their annual summer sale recently and I scooped up a few deals for summer.
This woven swing tank by Frenchi had been recommended by a few different fashion blogs and had really good reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars). The price dropped down to $15.90 so I bought it in three colors.  
Basic black for Miss High School.
This pretty color, Teal Angel for me.
And Rose Water that ended up going to College Girl who looked way better in this color than either of us did.
Miss High School loves maxi skirts but it pretty particular about them.  I ordered her two of the Sun & Shadow Print Woven Maxi Skirts and she loved them both.  This color is black royal ethnic print.
This one is teal border.  They are a summer wardrobe staple for her.
I got this Soprano Print Halter Maxi Dress in multi/orange for myself and I've already worn it two events (yes, they were on the same day but it worked for both!). I think I can dress it up or down.
I love Nordstrom's free shipping and free return policy. It makes shopping with them so much easier.
Let's keep in touch!

{Recipe} Quinoa Tacos

Tacos are a weeknight staple around here.  
These quick and easy Quinoa Tacos have become an instant favorite.
I cheated a little and used prepared guacamole to make it even easier.
Ingredients:
1 head of Romaine lettuce
1/2 cup dry quinoa  + 1 tsp chili powder(I used 1/2 tsp)
Guacamole
Additional {optional}chopped toppings: tomatoes, tortilla chips, slices of lime, hot sauce, salsa, cheese
Wash and dry Romaine lettuce leaves.
Rinse quinoa and cook with chili powder according to package directions. I used red quinoa, isn't it pretty?
The quinoa takes about 15 minutes to cook and you know it's done when the kernels look like they've popped open.
Serve family style.  Lay out the lettuce leaves and add the cooked quinoa, topping with guacamole.
Add any additional toppings you like and enjoy!
What's your favorite kind of taco?
Let's keep in touch!
