Ruffled Mini

Sharing one of my favorite summer looks today AND this skirt is on sale for less than $20!  I love a fun mini skirt for summer and this one is so adorable with the ruffles.  I've been on a major navy kick lately. I wanted to add a little more color to the look so I added my favorite summer bag charm.

I can't believe how fast summer is flying by! Next week is August and I seriously can't believe it. I certainly am not ready to head back to school, but there is something about fall I just love. Some of my #Nsale purchases are still coming in, and I'm so excited to start wearing some of the pieces. A few of my favorite pieces I wanted to share with you all are sold out, but hopefully they will be restocked at some point.  Some of them are worth purchasing even after the sale because they are SO good. I'll be sharing more soon!

Hope you all are having a great week!

Navy Number

Dress, Bag, Sandals similar here

Happy Monday! I wore this beautiful navy number to a recent wedding we attended in Chicago. I loved that it was a little more formal because of the length, but it was still so summery with the sheer bottom & lightweight fabric. It was the perfect length on me with heels, but I'm almost 5'8" so if you are on the shorter side, you might need to get it altered.
We don't have any more weddings this summer, but we do have a special date coming up from a special wedding last summer :) For our anniversary we decided to stay downtown at the Inn on Ferry Street in the same suite we stayed the night of our wedding. I'm so looking forward to being there again, remembering our special day, and celebrating our first year of marriage.
Have a wonderful week, thanks for stopping by!

Summer Blues

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share this easy summer look that I wore last week. This top is one of my new favorites. I LOVE the sleeves.  It reminds me of something Kelly Kapowski would wear (any other Saved by the Bell fans out there?!) which makes me loved it even more. AND it is only $25. It comes in three different colors/patterns as well.

If you're a Nordstrom card holder, don't forget to make your NSale purchases today before it opens to the public tomorrow. If you're not a cardholder. Make sure you know exactly what you want to buy so you can purchase it early tomorrow before things sell out! Remember, if there is something you want that is sold out or they don't have your size, keep checking back in on it online because sometimes items get restocked or different sizes become available as people return them. You can see all my top picks on my latest post or on the side bar.

Happy Friday Eve!

Rise & Shine, It's #NSALE time

Today is the day! The NSale has begun! This sale can be overwhelming to say the least. It can be easy to get caught up in the sale and end up over-buying. It's important for you to know what you need/want going into the sale to help keep you focused. I didn't want to overwhelm anything with this post so I just decided to pick my top twelve from the sale (& you can find a few more items I'm loving at the bottom). I'm explaining why they are my top picks and how much they cost during the sale vs. their original price. My advice is to shop the sale online first before going to the store. If you think online is overwhelming, in store shopping is 10 x more overwhelming (and frustrating when you can't find your size). Remember, it's okay to buy something in two sizes if you are unsure. Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns!

Sale Price: $299, Original Price: $499

First up are these classic Tory Burch boots. They are come in two different colors (brown and black) and they are fall staples. You won't find a price lower than this when it comes to TB boots. I've had all of my similar pairs for years and they last so long. In most of my TB boots, I go down half a size, so keep that in mind if you are buying them for the first time.

Sale price: $499, Original Price: $798

Next up, are these gorgeous Stuart Weitzman boots. They also come in two colors (this brown color and black).  These are classics and you can't go wrong with either color!

Sale price: $164, Original price: $268

These flats are another classic pair of shoes for fall.  I wear my TB flats so much and they are definitely a must-have.  Usually the more unique colors are the ones part of the sale, but this year this classic black is available as well!

Sale price: $99, Original price: $149

I just love these ankle boots and the split shaft makes them so unique. This color is perfect for fall (they also come in grey). For $100, you can't go wrong!

Sale price: $31, Original price: $49

This cardigan is one of the things I was most excited about ordering. I ordered it in two colors and it is available in 6 colors! I love the length and the color options are gorgeous. It runs big, so be sure to size down. At this price point, why not order a few?!

Sale price: $41, Original price: $64

I wanted to share a few pairs of jeans at different price points. First up, are these distressed ones. I ordered these and I can't wait to get them. They are perfectly distressed and the price is right!

Sale price: $149, Original price: $225

This next pair is a little more on the pricey side, but if you are looking to invest in a great pair of jeans, these AG ones are perfect!

Sale price: $62, Original price: $95

I just love this adorable little dress. The pattern is perfect and the ruffled skirt adds the perfect feminine touch. I love that it will be able to be styled for work or for the weekends.

Sale price: $29, Original price: $49

I couldn't pass up this cute ruffled sleeve olive dress. I got a similar one last year, but this one is even cuter! It comes in pink and grey also.

Sale price: $31, Original price: $49

I'm always looking for a few cute new sweaters at the Anniversary sale. Whenever October rolls around, I start wearing my sweaters to death. This one is perfect because of the classic black color, but the interesting fun neckline. 

Sale price: $31, Original price: $49

This top is the only thing I purchased that is a little more summery. I love the front tie detail and I couldn't pass it up for $31. It comes in three colors including white, light pink, and this color).

Sale price: $69, Original price: $108

Alo leggings are my favorite when I'm looking to spend a little more on a pair of leggings (I also love Zella like these ones that are also on sale - $42!). This is a great price for these. I have a pair of whites ones and they aren't see through at all. Great quality leggings. These specific ones come in black and white.

These are my top picks, but there are SO many other good things in this sale! Below are a few more of my favorites. I broke them down into categories (i.e. shoes, tops/dresses, activewear, etc.) to make it a little easier to shop.

Happy Shopping!
