Sol Azteca in Brookline

Sol Azteca in Brookline

It's tough to find good Mexican food in Boston. We've found a couple of local favorites so far, like El Pelon and El Centro Dos. After trying Sol Azteca in Brookline, I'm officially adding it to the list of must-try Mexican restaurants. It reminds me of my favorite restaurants not only in San Francisco but Mexico as well!

First of all, the salsa is delicious just on it's own, with real chunks of ingredients rather than the blended varieties you find at fast food chains.

Fish tacos pass the test easily, with generous, fresh ingredients in every bite and a separate piece of lime for each taco!

Chicken enchiladas verdes is always my favorite. The plate comes with orange Mexican rice, beans, and pickled cabbage. Doesn't get any better than this!

With simple, fresh ingredients, generous portions of food and hospitality, Sol Azteca is not to be missed. I can't believe it took us so long to discover this gem!

Epic Sale Alert! Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Picks

Guys! You've probably heard a lot about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale lately, and for good reason. Not only does Nordstrom carry pretty much any piece of clothing or beauty item your heart could possibly desire, but this is their biggest sale of the YEAR. To be honest, most fashionistas will shop this sale not only for summer items, but for fall and winter staples too. 

The sale opens to the public on July 22nd and goes through August 8th. 

However, if you sign up for a Nordstrom card then the sale started YESTERDAY July 14th for you (so get a card if you don't have one yet)! An insider tip: Most of the best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items sell out at lightning speed, so I suggest either getting a card to shop now, or have your carts at the ready on 7/22 and hit that "buy" button! It's just THAT GOOD. 

I scoured the sales early to bring you my top picks for 2016, sorted by category for your viewing pleasure - don't forget to add them to your cart ASAP! You'll thank me later!

Shoes: Flats & Low Sandals


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Picks


Um, hi. It's no secret that I'm obsessed with lace up flats this season, and now I just need these Halogen Owen flats in like every color, is that too much to ask?

I can't get over the pop of color and fun spike accents in these Sam Edelman flats (which come in tons of other shades too), and these Tory Burch sandals are on ridiculous sale for almost 50% off!

Shoes: Heels and High Sandals

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Picks

Can I just tell you that I love how heels and high sandals look but I'm the biggest wimp about actually wearing them for long periods of time? One of the only brands stylish & comfortable enough for me to wear are Steve Madden! Also, the camel color of these beauts are ALREADY sold out in everything but size 11 (luckily there are other colors left)! I told you these sale items will fly off the shelves!

I mean, you had me at Sam Edelman pumps. How cute are those subtle spike accents on the back? Designed for a true boss babe!

These cut out pointy toe pumps are so sweet and stylish. I feel like these are what Cinderella would wear if she were a blogger today.

I cannot even handle how killer these lace up pumps in Cabernet suede are (they come in stone taupe and black too). Can. Not. Handle. *Walks away for dramatic effect* *Runs back to buy them before anyone else does*

This is the kind of perfect block heel sandal that you just know you could wear all day and still be the most stylish person in the room - my favorite combo!

Shoes: Booties

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Picks

I would welcome any of these into my shoe closet with open arms: 1 Sam Edelman fringe booties // 2 Cutout booties // 3 Lucky wedge booties // 4 Lucky perforated booties // 5 Toms peep toe // 6 Toms peep toe

Dresses
