Happy Wednesday!

We have a special guest on the blog today.  This is our nephew, James!

You may remember my post on DITTO Endless Eyewear a few weeks ago.  If not, you can read it here.  I am addicted to sunglasses and my collection was getting out of control.  Luckily I came across DITTO!  Membership costs $24/month for sunglasses and $34/month for prescription glasses. Select a pair of designer glasses. Wear them for as long as you want. When you are ready, swap them out for something new.   As soon as your new pair arrives, send the old pair back. Shipping is always free and swaps are unlimited, so you can change your look as often as you like.  They carry men and women’s styles.  Use code ANDIAPPROVED to receive your first month subscription for free!  If you decide it’s not for you, cancel at anytime!  It’s worth a try and I highly recommend it.

James is modeling a pair of Ray-Ban aviators.  He is such a natural!  We got so many great shots during our session with him. To see more photos from our shoot, follow him on Instagram @jameswhyte and Snapchat: hiim_james  You may see more style by James in the future.  Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!!

We were feeling artsy this weekend and decided to spend some more time downtown in Village of the Arts. It is an eclectic mix of colorfully  painted and artistically decorated homes and businesses; some of them doubling as both. Even if you don’t venture into any of the stores or restaurants, it is a fun place to walk around and take photos.

I am wearing a ruffle-sleeve tee that I bought last week.  It also comes in a black and ivory stripe combination.  It is extremely soft and comfortable.  I am wearing the small.  I paired it with my absolute favorite pair of jeans from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  They are sold out of the distressed version but they still have the regular skinny jeans which fit the same and I also own and love.  My pineapple sandals were from the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale and sold out fast, but they are still available and on sale here.

Keep checking back as we will have a special guest on The Andi’s List later this week!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy, Happy Friday!!

Today I have partnered with Lucy and Lyla to bring you this beautiful floral fall blouse.  The fabric feels soft and cool against your skin.  It is A line with bell sleeves, and isn’t clingy or super fitted like most blouses.  I love the tie neck and button details.  It would look great with a black leather midi skirt or with black jeans.  My jeans are so comfortable with the perfect amount of stretch to them.  I also got them in white and classic rinse — which is on sale!

We took a little trip down to Village of the Arts for these photos.  I never knew how many quaint little restaurants there were in that area!  We will definitely be back to try some out in the near future.  In the meantime, it is a great backdrop.

Happy Wednesday!

It was a rainy evening when we took these photos.  My top is currently on sale for $13.99!  I really like the sleeve length and the fact that it is A line, more like a swing top.  I am so happy I was able to snag these jeans during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  They are my favorite!  The length is perfect and they don’t stretch out when I wear them.

Thanks for stopping by!!

^^ Andi is ready for the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!

Happiest Sunday, Everyone!

Tomorrow is one of the biggest sale shopping events of the year: Lilly Pulitzer is having their After Party Sale !  It begins at 8AM ET on Monday, August 22, 2016 and ends at 11:59PM ET on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.  If shopping on the morning of the sale, you may be placed in a virtual line before entering the website.  If you are, don’t worry!  It is SO worth the wait and there will still be plenty of merchandise when you make it past the virtual line.  Once you enter the site, you will have ONE TIME to check out before you are directed back to the virtual line.  Not a fan of online shopping?  Missed out on certain items you wanted?    Head over to your local Lilly Pulitzer corporate retail location!  They will be participating in the sale as well.  Pro Tip:  If you are looking for a specific item, it is advised to call ahead as all items online will not be available in all retail stores.  For more FAQ’s about the sale, click here.

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday, Andi!!

I cannot believe it is here.  Our little girl is now a one year old.  Everyday she continues to amaze us.  She is observant, funny, outgoing and has such a bold personality.  Her favorite things are reading, eating, playing with her long hair Chihuahua, Apollo, and watching Goldie and Bear and Elena of Avalor.  She likes to sing in the car and dance to her favorite theme songs.  Andi is 100% a Daddy’s Girl and Anthony loves it.  🙂 This year has gone by way too fast for us but we are looking forward to watching her learn and grow even more this year.


Thank you for stopping by to share some of these precious memories. I will be sharing some photos from her birthday party early next week, so check back!

xx Niki, Anthony and Andi

Happy Thursday!

We decided to take a stroll downtown with Andi last night.  We are all finally getting over the funk we all had and wanted to get out of the house for some fresh air.  This dress by Eileen Fisher is one of my favorite dress purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It is a soft and stretchy jersey knit and comes in three colors.  I like that you can just throw it on for an effortlessly chic look.  The fact that it has pockets makes it even more perfect!  My booties were another Anniversary Sale purchase.  I almost didn’t order them but I am so glad that I did.  They come in black and the color that I am wearing, which they are calling “Prairie Dust Suede”.  I really like the cutout detail at the ankles.  They have side zippers which makes them easy to take on and off.

Happy Wednesday!

I love mixing different shades of leather for Fall.  My jacket is extremely comfortable.  It has a soft and stretchy rib-knit drape collar with panels of buttery soft faux leather to create a versatile style.  I am looking forward to throwing it on with a pair of leggings and knee high boots in a few months! It also comes in black if you aren’t digging the green.

My booties are a purchase from last year that I didn’t get around to wearing.  I was excited to see that they are still available, and ON SALE!  I love the gold detail.  It gives it a more elevated look and they are so different than any of my other boots and booties.

Happy Tuesday!

Today I have teamed up with Endless Eyewear by DITTO to share a brilliant new way to wear all of your favorite designer eyewear without breaking the bank.

Here is how it works:

Select a pair of glasses from thousands of designer styles. Wear them for as long as you want, then swap for something new whenever you’re ready. When your new pair arrives, send the old pair back. Shipping is always free and swaps are unlimited, so you can change your look as often as you like. Membership costs $24/month for sunglasses and $34/month for prescription glasses.

It is so easy and this gives you the opportunity to wear a variety of different glasses without committing to the large price tag that usually goes along with eyewear. This is also a great way to “test drive” different styles before making a purchase. They carry men and women’s prescription glasses and sunglasses. If you fall in love with your glasses, like I have with this pair, you have the option to buy them with a 15% discount!

Aren’t sure about ordering glasses that you haven’t tried on?  The folks at DITTO have covered that base as well.  Simply create your DITTO to virtually see how different styles will look.

Use the code ANDIAPPROVED to receive one month free of Endless Eyewear!  Go ahead and give it a try.  It’s free! If you decide it’s not for you, you can always cancel at any time.

Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know if what glasses you choose! 🙂

Happy Monday!

Sorry I have been MIA the past few days.  Andi has had a virus and was kind enough to share it with me.  We are both on the mend.  She is almost 100% again.

I am wearing a comfy and casual look today.  My cardigan is currently on sale for 40% off with all sizes in stock!  It is a great lightweight sweater; perfect to keep in the car in case of an emergency.  My jeans were a purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and unfortunately have gone back up to full price.  They are a great pair of jeans with the perfect amount of stretch. Here is a similar pair for under $75.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don’t forget to sign up for my emails if you haven’t already.
