Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!

As promised, below are my top picks for the #nsale which opens to the public today!! In my opinion, it’s the best sale of the entire year!! These items are all brand new fall / winter wardrobe pieces that are on sale to up to 40%!  Once August 8th comes around, all of these items featured in the sale will go back up to original price!

As mentioned in my last post, an insider note, you should just buy whatever size available (if yours if not available) and then do an exchange once the sale ends and the inventory is restocked.  That way you ARE guaranteed to be locked into the anni sale price.  This is the perfect time to stock up on this fall’s favorite boots, dresses, sweaters, demin, outerwear, handbags, cosmetics, etc.  Below are my TOP picks for the 2016 Nordstrom Anni Sale!

Which items are you going to buy??

Stripes and Everything Nice

This off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect wardrobe piece for a summer outing and I am loving the stripes!  I wore this classic dress to a family BBQ this past weekend that we had at my aunt and uncles house.  I just love the ruffled, off-the-shoulder look, and it is everywhere this summer.  I’ve been loving H&M’s summer collection and here are some of my top picks for this off-the-shoulder look: herehere, here, here.

It’s very light weight and breezy, making it an ideal option for a hot, humid day.  The khaki green dress is also to die for.  This olive color will be a huge hit this fall, so this is next on my list for purchases!  Pair either color option with a cute pair of suede camel booties for the perfect fall outfit.  Some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Chestnut Suede Booties, Prairie Dust Suede Booties.

I will be posting my top picks from the #nsale on Friday morning once the sale goes live to the public.  You can shop the early access by browsing the sale then placing what you want in your Wish List.  Just as a reminder if you are not a Nordstrom Debit or Credit card holder, the sale will be available to the public starting Friday, July 22 (3:00 AM EST) – Sunday, August 8 (3:00 AM EST).  This sale includes the newest fall fashion at a discount up to 40% off.

**Just an inside tip: If they do not have your size available, order any size and you can exchange your item once the product is restocked as soon as the sale ends.  You won’t want to miss this sale, everything goes back to full price on August 8!!!! Stock up on your favorite fall booties, sweaters, leather jackets, chunky knits, designer fragrances and cosmetics, handbags, etc.

Thanks for reading!

Summer Lace

White and lace have been all the rage this summer! I found the most beautiful White Lace Dress from Madewell and it’s on sale!

I wore this little number to the Hershey Vineyard and Brewery on Friday night during a fabulous get-together for my mom before she moves to Charleston, SC.  I’ve received so many compliments on the dress and how beautiful the detail of the lace is, each time I’ve worn it.  You can’t go wrong with a classic, simple yet gorgeous dress that you can pair with any accessory; What better, than pair with my favorite summer wedges: here.

Some other white lace summer favorites: herehere, here (extra 25% off with code: summersale25)herehere.

I’ll keep you posted on my favorite steals I come across, so you can join the shopping excitement too!

This Suede wrap mini skirt , I got on SALE from Mango.  They’re having a huge sale right now, and this weekend I got a few adorable pieces to make it through summer.  I’m so obsessed with this skirt (only $39.99) and it’s real leather! It comes in this gorgeous Camel color and a really pretty dark gray. Top is from Charlotte Russe a few years ago, similar: hereherehere.

Stylish Sunday Sundress

Blog 7v1Blog 7v3Blog 7v4Blog 7v5Blog 7v6Blog 7v10My Sunday’s are usually full of relaxation and enjoying time with a close friend or loved one.  I have a section of my closet full of simple, yet beautiful dresses that help me get through my Sunday mani/pedis and make it to dinner and drinks with my man.

The best thing about dresses like these, they’re so easy to just throw on with a pair of flats or sandals, then transition into the evening with strappy heels and statement sunnies.

Almost any and everything you see this summer has the delicate embroidery on it and I just adore it. My dress I wore yesterday (similar herehere, and here) is so flowy and lax.  Some of my summer favorites with embroidery are here: Lulu’s Ivory and Blue dressLOVE LOVE LOVEOff-shoulder Midi dressRevolve Navy dressLulu’s Navy Dress.

My Accessories: Prada Sunnies, House of Harlow Wedges (similar: herehere), Lips: Clinique, Nails (Gel): OPI “Let’s Be Friends!”.

Pretty in Palms

Blog 5v2Blog 5v3Blog 5v4Blog 5v5Blog 5v6Blog 5v7Blog 5v1When I think of the perfect print for summer, I envision tropical and colorful styles that are perfect for paradise! Palms have been so big this year and I just LOVE them!

I am so in love with this jumpsuit !!  I purchased about two weekends ago from Old Navy and unfortunately, it’s already sold out in regular, tall and petite but still available in plus sizes.  This jumper is so comfy, fits beautifully and I received so many compliments on the print!

Good news is, if you love this print, it is available in a flowy, cami dress that’s perfect for a summer BBQ or brunch with the girls.

Other Palm Print Pieces:Palm Print Jumpsuit – TopshopTop ShopExpress Flowy Maxi Dillard’s One Shoulder Dress,

Shoes: Rebecca Minkoff (Similar Style)

Other styles from Nordstrom under $100 that I’m obsessing over: CK Nude SnakeskinIvanka Trump Block Heel SandalDolce Vita Lace Up SandalAerin Open Toe Block Heel Sandal)

Sunnies: Dior Reflected – Pink / White.  In department stores, these sunnies are $450 +tax. I found a site called Otticanet with authentic, tax free sunglasses for a fraction of the cost. The glasses ship for free directly from Italy.  Highly recommend this site if you’re looking for authentic designer sunglasses for cheaper than the department store!

This summer I just cannot get enough of simple, chic dresses.  I’ve purchased many dresses this season that are so effortless and can be dressed down with a pair of simple sandals or up with pretty, strappy wedges.  This exact dress I cannot find anywhere online; I purchased it in New York & Company store.  Similar style here, loving the black and white!

Also loving these looks too: NY & Co. Yellow Maxi (perfect in a tropical paradise), NY & Co. Tunic (Only $15!) (teal and white are amazing), NY & Co. Off-Shoulder Maxi. All these lovely dresses are on sale at New York & Company!

My new Catherine Malandrino Espadrille Wedge Sandal, found at Nordstrom Rack could quite possibly be the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever owned! Other similar options: Catherine Malandrino Wedge Marc FisherChloé, and Stuart Weitzman.

My accessories: Dolce & Gabbana Sunnies“Love” RingDiamond PendantRose Gold Cable Bracelet and Pineapple Tumbler (perfect for summer cocktails or juices)!
