This fall I am SO loving this olive green color for dresses, vests, army jackets, sweaters — it’s so in!

I found this adorable BP woven shirt dress, which is a great transition piece from summer to fall, during the much anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I’m so excited to finally make it’s long over due debut on crème! With the weather getting a little cooler this weekend, I would pair this with some tan booties and a leather jacket; perfect solution from day to night dress.

I paired this little number with Steve Madden Lace Up Nude Suede Sandals Heels, which are surprisingly very comfy and I walked all around Soho for this shoot (also shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize).

I cannot believe Summer 2016 has come and gone.  Where did the time go??  Anyone who knows me, knows summer is my favorite season! It’s always sunny, everyone is happy, there’s always something fun going on outside – whether it’s happy hour, dinner on our terrace, long walks in the neighborhood or weekends at the beach!

I think we can all agree that this summers hottest looks and trends included anything white, striped, lace, pale blue and off-the-shoulder.  I think it’s safe to say, I have a thing for the off-the-shoulder look and hope to continue it throughout the fall, it’s just too cute!

Above is one of my favorite summer looks shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize. Check out his blog here.  He specializes in Weddings, Couples and Lifestyle.  I met Jason, through my friend while he was shooting her magical wedding. He’s truly talented and does amazing work!

Love these floral pumps, they’re so beautiful and really pop when you add them with a solid colored outfit.  I love the variety of colors, which allows you to pair with so many different outfits.  These can truly dress up any look!

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!

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!

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!”.
