The Nordstrom Sale Is On!

For the past week, this sale has only been open to Nordstrom card holders, but now it’s finally open to everyone! Things in the sale always sell out SO fast, but if there is an item you particularly love, keep an eye on it because the frequently restock well loved items in the sale.

Yesterday, I went in my local Nordstrom & did a dressing room try on for you guys. Sometimes, it’s just better seeing the items on someone you know rather than on a model or on a rack. I tried on quite a few pieces & linked other items within the sale that I would style each piece with. Most of these items are for the upcoming fall season. It’s coming up quick (even though it’s still super hot!), so now is the perfect time to shop those essential items your wardrobe really needs. Towards the bottom, I also shared some beauty & home favorites that are included in the sale as well!

Happy Shopping!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

This peachy-pink sweater is oh-so-soft! I love the fit as well. It’s not too tight but not oversized either. For the skirt, I love a good plaid print in the fall. Such a feminine cut, perfect for work. This can be dressed up with heels, but I’m really feeling these sweet, scalloped flats.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I was not expecting to fall so hard for this dress! It’s stretchy, but firm so it holds everything in. The material is thick, almost sweater-like, perfect to keep you warm on chilly nights. Plus, the skirt is SO flattering. You could even wear this into the winter with this emerald faux fur jacket & these gorgeous lace heels.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Ok, ok, ok…this is the perfect thing to throw on & go. I love the care-free look of pairing this cream sweater dress with a pair of brown knee high boots & a green, round, croc-style bag.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

How stunning is this emerald jumpsuit?! This would be perfect for a fall wedding or even a Christmas party. I would style this dress with some feminine pink pieces like this blush coat & these pink croc-style block heels.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

This light sweater top has almost all of my favorite colors in its stripes. In this photo, I have these skinny jeans on, but I’d love to style it with these wide leg denim pants & these burgundy shoes with a small heel to elongate my look.

This classic Parisian outfit that makes a great go-to look. I love that this striped boatneck top has the cutest scoop back. It’s those little details that really elevate your look. Pair it with a great pair of skinny jeans & this iconic trench coat. I truly believe every woman needs a good trench coat in her wardrobe (see all my classic wardrobe essentials here).

The cutest & softest roll neck sweater I’ve tried on in a while. Once again, the colors are just perfection & the length pairs great with skinny jeans. Throw a good trench coat over your shoulders & you’re good to go.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I’ll admit, pullovers like this are not the most fun thing to purchase, but I’m always glad I have them. This one has nice snap details & I love the unique color. Something like this is great to have to go on walks outside, to wear on holiday with family, & to wear to fall bonfires. Pair this with skinny jeans or leggings & a pair of cute Hunter boots.

I’m desperate for a good navy sweater, & this navy chenille one seems just about perfect. I love the neckline & the fit of this to wear with high waisted skirts throughout the fall season. It would also look amazing with these wide leg cropped jeans & tweed heels.

I have a pullover so similar to this one, & I wear it all the time. Wear it with your comfies around the house or to run errands, or dress it up just a bit for coffee or lunch with a friend, with a pair of skinny jeans & this tan pair of knee high boots.

These were my top 5 pieces from my try on!

Bring On The Warmth

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems as though spring was here for about 3 weeks & now we are in full summer mode. At least here in Richmond, it’s already so hot & humid. Even though summer doesn’t technically start until June 21st, the weather certainly says otherwise. The weather & colors outside greatly affect the outfits I wear on a daily basis. Around this time of year, the sun has a way of bringing out all the warm tones of nature & casting a warm, yellow tint around us. Therefore, it’s easy to see why all I want to wear are lovely, feminine, warm tone pieces. What can I say, I like to blend in with nature!

What’s Not To Love?

This look is basically a compilation of all my current favorite things. First of all, this warm-toned, striped dress is so comfortable & on sale for under $25! I’m in love with the colors, the button front details, & the feminine ties on the sides. When I wear button front dresses that don’t have very full skirts, I like to unbutton a few of the bottom buttons to show a little leg & add more drama.

My blush espadrilles add the perfect touch of warmth & match my dress so well. Espadrilles are my favorite shoes to wear in the summer. They can be both casual & dressy, but they also provide those dreamy vacation vibes I crave on the daily.

My newest basket bag was an obvious choice to pair with this look. I love how the lines on my dress are mimicked by the structure of this bag. This Laura Ashley toile scarf was the perfect accessory to this bag. It’s warm pinky-peach tones are gorgeous & toile is a print I’ve loved since I was a child. I know this will be my most worn scarf of the season.

Let’s Get Ready For Spring!

Spring is right around the corner, so close on some days I can even feel it. It’s time to change over my wardrobe for warmer days. This means lighter layers, flowing fabrics, woven bags, & a romantic & fresh vibe. I can’t wait to be able to spend more time outside, smell the ever growing blooms & wear some of my favorite items in my wardrobe for the spring season. Today, I want to talk you through my spring wardrobe essentials. These items are the base of my spring wardrobe & are must-have items for any feminine wardrobe.

Midi Skirts

Spring is my favorite time to wear midi skirts. Not only do they give me those dreamy, romantic vibes, but they also provide a bit of warmth for the chilly spring mornings. The three essential midi skirts in my wardrobe are a pink tulle skirt, a blue & white striped skirt, & a full skirt in my favorite neutral shade which for me is navy.

Crisp White Top

A crisp white top is my absolute favorite favorite item to buy. The best part is that it’s a completely guilt-free purchase because of how often I wear these pieces. They are the perfect compliment to every midi skirt, jean, or trouser I will wear all season. When I find affordable white tops online, I look to see if it has an interesting texture or shape. I love ones with a high neck, a bow detail, or dramatic sleeves. The best places to find these lovely & affordable pieces, in my experience, are H&M & Forever 21.

Espadrilles

For shoes, nothing says spring more than a pair of pastel espadrilles. So many more companies are coming out with amazing affordable choices this year which I am so thrilled about. Last year, I purchased a classic pair of white espadrilles & wore them constantly throughout the spring & summer. This year I’ve purchased a blush pair as well as a light blue pair. I find these shoes so flattering & extremely comfortable to wear. Old Navy has also come out with some really love flat espadrilles that I’m considering trying out for days I’m on my feet more. These shoes are essential to my spring wardrobe & I love them to pieces.

Woven Bags

I’m going to be doing an entire post on this subject coming up soon, so I won’t go into too much detail here. However, woven & wicker bags are a key accessory in my spring wardrobe. They just scream sunshine, outdoors, & endless time in the garden.

Square Scarves

This classic & timeless accessory is the perfect way to add a bit of feminine flair to your spring wardrobe. A simple scarf is quite a versatile piece to have in your collection. It can be worn around your neck, in your hair, or tied around your handbag like I’ve worn it in this post. Try finding ones in colors you know you wear a lot in your wardrobe you can easily pair it with several outfits.

Flower Earrings

What better way to accessorize in the spring than with florals?! Statement earring in the most beautiful floral shapes are popping up everywhere. They are my very favorite earrings to wear during this season & are always a great conversation starter. I love how many affordable options there are too! No reason not to own a pair of flower earrings (or ten).

A Fresh Nude Lip + Spring Fragrance

My all time favorite nude lipstick is hands down the YSL lipstick in the shade 70 Le Nu. This formula has a lovely satin finish that wears beautifully. It’s the perfect pinky nude color for spring. The last thing that really gets my in the mood fo spring when getting ready everyday is wearing a fresh spring fragrance. Read about all of my affordable favorites here.

Adding A New Color To My Wardrobe

Yellow

I keep catching myself being drawn to the color yellow. Maybe it’s my subconscious wishing for more sunshine & warmth? Or maybe it has something to do with my lemon obsession I’ve had ever since our Italian honeymoon last summer (see here: 1/2/3). Either way, this color is giving me life at the moment. I’m slowly finding ways to naturally incorporate this color into my wardrobe.

What a fun & vibrant color yellow is! It has the power & ability to absolutely cheer up any outfit. That in itself is one huge reason adding more yellow into your wardrobe this year will be a decision I will not regret.

Ease Your Way In

A great way to slowly starting adding a new color into your wardrobe is to incorporate it in with the colors you already own. I already wear a lot of pink, burgundy, & dark green, so the yellow worked into this striped dress makes wearing this bright yellow feel a little less intimidating & a little more me. Finding an item like this dress is a great way to introduce a new color to your wardrobe.

My Look

It has been just cold, cold, cold here in Richmond. So while I can’t wait to wear this dress alone or with sandals once the weather starts to warm up a bit, I added a few extra layers to make this dress wearable in the current climate. I love the way brown & yellow pairs together. Black & yellow just seems a bit too harsh for me, at least right now. Brown & yellow feels warm, fresh, & soft. A very casual & wearable color combination.

This long, feminine wrap style dress in contrast with the brown leather jacket is such a lovely pairing. I wore this look with my favorite tall brown boots that I literally wear all year long. This cheerful ensemble just begged for a fresh face. I kept my makeup simple with some bronzer & a fresh nude lip for a warm & summery feel. To add to that vibe, I even wore my cute starfish studs that remind me of the movie, Aquamarine (if only they complimented me! haha). Seeing the completed look against this dark green wall is giving me mega inspiration to do a two color look with green & yellow! Should I give it a try?

Layering B&W Prints

This past year, I’ve loved exploring & playing more with print mixing. We’ve talked about the basics, we’ve played around with mixing pieces in the same print, & also played around with florals & stripes. Today’s look features 6 prints & textures with one common factor: they are all black & white. I love the statement this look makes while still remaining so neutral. Another reason why these pieces play so well together is because the prints are all different sizes. The large polka dots combined with the medium stripes & the smaller houndstooth & check prints create a perfect balance.

Shop Wisely

If you are wanting to start playing around with mixing prints or even just mixing more items within your wardrobe, it all comes down to shopping wisely & knowing your personal style. What colors do you wear most? (I recently re-organized my closets in color order & it has been life changing!) When adding more prints into your wardrobe, think about the colors that comprise the print. Do you own several pieces in those colors? If so, that item is likely to fit into your wardrobe in a more seamless manner. Shopping wisely is key to having a well curated closet without excess.

Get Creative

I was actually so nervous about putting together this look. In my head it seemed like there was a lot going on & it would look too cluttered, but honestly I’m obsessed with this look & cannot wait to wear it out again! All it took was a little bit of courage for me to step out of my comfort zone & create one of my favorite outfits ever. Be fearless. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You might just love it!
