Last Weekend to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

SHOP WHAT’S LEFT:


I can’t believe the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming to an end. On one hand, I feel like I have heard sooo much about this sale and am ready for it to go. But on the other hand, I feel like July just FLEW by and were barrelling towards Fall at hyperspeed now. Regardless, I wanted to comb through the site one more time and make sure I purchased all of the staples I need for the next couple of seasons so I don’t have to pay full price for them.

Well, I can’t believe how much I missed! Just yesterday, I grabbed this Patagonia vest in pink, these DryBar hair products, and this sports bra. While I was going through Nordstrom’s site, I was pleasantly surprised by how many of my purchases were back in stock, so I thought I’d do one last roundup for y’all to make sure you didn’t miss anything like me!

Embellished Peplum Top + Best #NSale Denim

SHOP THE POST:


POST DETAILS:

Top: J.Crew (I’m wearing a size 4) / Denim: AG (Part of the #NSale / Size Down) / Bag: Accessory Concierge / Pom Pom Keychain: Accessory Concierge / Earrings: Accessory Concierge / Sunglasses: Karen Walker  / Heels: Sam Edelman / Bracelets: Charming Charlie, J.Crew Factory, Kate Spade


Soooo much to chat about today, y’all! So grab a glass of wine and get ready… First off, there are only a handful of days left in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. For some of you guys, that might be awesome because you’re beyond sick of bloggers cramming it down your throat. For others like me, I keep discovering new pieces that are such a steal! My favorite purchases from the #NSale have actually happened in the last week if you can believe it. Namely, these AG boyfriend jeans.

I’ve been a long time fan of AG denim, but have steered clear of boyfriend jeans because I figured they would make my already large calves look even larger. Boy, was I wrong! The relaxed fit actually hides my calves and downplays my problem areas, whereas skinny jeans tend to accentuate them. As long as you size down one size (I’m wearing a size 26), these jeans have the perfect amount of slouchiness without looking sloppy. Plus, they are $75 off until Sunday. If you can’t tell, I am so excited about them!

How to Style a Pink Blazer

SHOP THE POST:


POST DETAILS:

Blazer: Jess Lea Boutique c/o / Skirt: Madewell (Size Down, I’m wearing an XS / 25% off!) / Tank: TopShop / Clutch: Etsy / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Heels: Sam Edelman / Watch: Kate Spade (on sale!) / Bracelets: Charming Charlie, J.Crew Factory, Kate Spade


Hi, loves! I am excited to share another look from Charleston. And there’s no better day than Wednesday (duh) to share this hot pink blazer from Jess Lea Boutique! I have always been a fan of lightweight blazers because it is so easy to elevate a casual outfit by just throwing one on. But this HOT pink blazer isn’t for the preppy Spencer Hastings type. This blazer makes a statement!

Have no fear, though, because when it comes to rocking a pink blazer, there are a ton of ways to style it. Some of my favorites include popping it on over all white – be it a white sundress or white skinnies and a tank. The navy stripes on the cuff lend itself to dark denim, as well! But as a gingham fanatic, I was excited to do some serious print mixing! I snagged this Madewell skirt recently (it’s on sale!) and knew it would be such a fun piece to wear with this blazer. I have more traditional Fall looks planned for this skirt, but y’all it was hot and humid in Charleston so sweater looks are on the back burner for now.
