Two days in a row without a Nordstrom Sale post! Can you believe it? Haha! Now that I’m betting everything in Nordstrom’s warehouse is long gone (minus the awesome home goods), I wanted to switch gears back to some warm-weather outfits. We’re still very much in the dead of Summer, so we’ll worry about Fall when it gets here!

When it comes to fun Summer looks, I love discovering little boutiques that feature unique pieces you can’t find everywhere. Case in point, this jumpsuit from Shop Fancy Free. This look is VERY different for me, but I am all about stepping out of my comfort zone or trying new things! And thank goodness I did, because this off-the-shoulder jumpsuit is adorable. I can’t tell if I should be on my way to a country concert or a 70’s disco… Either way, I love it!

Floral Wrap Dress + A Giveaway

POST DETAILS:

Dress: Forever 21 (Under $20) / Bag: Etsy (Clare V. Version Back in Stock Here) / Tassel: MISA (Love This One) / Earrings: Nordstrom / Heels: Sam Edelman / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Bracelets: The Styled Collection, Kate Spade, BaubleBar


Hi loves! I hope y’all had a fabulous weekend. Jeremy and I spent ours at Lake Jocassee and OMG, it is absolutely stunning! Is it weird that I’ve never been on a lake that doesn’t have homes on it? The only part of the lake that has been built upon is a strip of log cabins. And you bet your butt I am looking into spending a weekend up there soon!

But back to this stunning floral wrap dress. I was waiting to share it, but I noticed that it is beginning to sell out and I didn’t want y’all to miss it – especially because it is under $20! Plus, if the wrap dress silhouette isn’t your thing, it also comes in an off-the-shoulder romper version. Yep, I have both!

I have a little something extra today to brighten up y’all’s Monday! I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to one of my favorite retailers, Mixology. Mixology has such a wide array of pieces – my current favorites are their transitional pieces like this GORG ruffle-sleeve sweater! But this isn’t about my picks, it’s about you! Scroll to the bottom of this post and use the Rafflecopter to let me know what you would snag from Mixology and you could win the gift certificate!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outfit Roundup

SHOP MY #NSALE PURCHASES:


OMG, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is ALMOST open to the public! I, clearly, have gone a little crazy this year, but hopefully I can make it to your benefit 🙂 Because I have styled ten looks below and am sharing size and price info, as well as my reviews on these purchases. And while I only included pieces I genuinely love below, I did have a few misses. Namely, this deceivingly adorable blouse. Don’t be fooled! It’s enormous and looks like a hospital gown. Honestly, the model must be ten feet tall. But have no fear, I weeded out those items and showing y’all how everything looks on.

Thankfully (and in spite of that hot mess express top), almost every product in the #NSale ran true to size. Just keep in mind that cardigans are typically oversized, so depending on whether or not you like a close fit pick your normal size or size down one (I always size down). But each of the tops, sweaters, and boot(ie)s I purchased all fit perfectly.

While shopping the sale, I always suggest y’all purchase multi-functional pieces that can last all Summer and Fall long and be worn a number of different ways. The best part about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that it really highlights your trusty basics and wardrobe workhorses. Your wallet will thank you once Fall rolls around and you’ve already gotten the heavy lifting out of the way – for a fraction of the cost! Plus, Nordstrom has the best return policy, so if you winding up hating something, there’s free shipping and returns!

This sale is certainly overwhelming, so if you’re wondering where to start I’ll share with you my FAVORITE purchases – this Tory Burch tote, these Zella leggings, these Vince Camuto booties, and these Leith shorts. You can scroll down to see how I styled them. I could be persuaded into giving up everything else, but you’d have to pry those four items from my cold, dead hands! Ha!

Pop over HERE to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items that are (somehow) STILL IN STOCK!

Notes: I had read all about Zella leggings before, but didn’t believe the hype until I tried on this pair of leggings. They are very high waisted (which I love) and really suck you in. Plus, they don’t slide off of you as the day goes on like cheaper leggings tend to.

Notes: I honestly can’t believe I didn’t own a pair of gray booties. My closet has been missing out – they are the perfect neutral and match so much! Thank goodness I didn’t order yet another pair of taupe. These booties are SO flattering, as well. I have large feet for my height and they look narrow and petite in these.
