#NSale Bell Sleeve Dress for Summer & Fall

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm styling one of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases...the Lush 'Whitney' Bell Sleeve Shift Dress. This flowy dress is perfect for summer or fall. It's on sale for $31 (it goes back up to $48 after the #nsale) and comes in tons of colors and patterns! I really like the style of this dress even though it doesn't offer any shape. It's different than anything else I own! When I saw it in stores, I wasn't sure I would like it, but after trying it on, I was sold! It is semi-sheer though, so make sure to wear nude undergarments. For reference, it runs big and I'm wearing an xsmall. 
I love the back cutout of this dress...definitely adds interest! Also, I like how the dress is slightly longer in the back. 
For summertime, this dress is adorable with wedges or sandals. I went with nude wedges but any neutral shoe would work or an animal print like these (one of my #nsale purchases!). For fall, I would pair this dress with open or closed toe booties! 

These BP. 'Springs' Wedges are at Nordstrom on sale for $39.90. They are comfy for the height and go with everything!

The 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale {#NSale}

Tomorrow is the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, also known as the #NSale on social media! Today I'm answering some basic questions about the sale and then I'll be sharing my favorites for you to shop in my next post! 

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Nordstrom has great sales throughout the year, but the Anniversary Sale is the biggest sale of the year! During this Nordstrom customers can shop new fall arrivals at discounted prices! The sale is only for a few weeks, and when it ends, prices go back up. Normally, stores run sales on merchandise after weeks or months (mid-season), but this sale is different because brand new items are marked down right away! How awesome is that?? This sale is in stores and online.

When can I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!?

The sale is open to everyone from July 22-August 8. If you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you get early access from July 14-21! The Early Access Sale allows customers with the Nordstrom credit or debit cards to get first dibs on the merchandise! Many items sell out fast, so if you aren't a cardholder, you can sign up for one here

What are the best deals?

You can find savings on fall items in all departments! You can save 20%-30% and sometimes more on brand new arrivals. The most popular items include riding boots, fall booties, Kendra Scott jewelry, handbags (like Rebecca Minkoff and Tory Burch), watches and denim! There are also good deals on beauty products. In case you didn't receive the Anniversary Sale catalog, you can check it out here. This is a great way to see what's trending this fall and of course, pick out your favorites! 

Stay tuned for my next post...I'll be sharing my top picks from the #NSale!

Classic Black & White

Today's outfit is all about classic black and white! This look is professional and modest, yet chic and feminine. This outfit is perfect for work, parties and events, church, date night, and more!

I absolutely love this Stripe Bodice Top from White House Black Market. The trend in tops right now is over sized and loose fitting, but I like that this top is different and provides some shape and structure. The vertical stripes are so flattering and how cool is the v-shaped back?! It's an extra 40% off with code 62787 (or find it in stores!) bringing it down to $24
I paired the stripe top with cropped black pants for a sleek and classy look. These are the Premium Bi-Stretch Skimmer Pants from White House Black Market. They are on sale for $36 (also an extra 40% off with code 62787)! I have a hard time finding nice dress pants that fit well, but these are amazing. They are so flattering and the material is stretchy and comfortable. For reference, I'm wearing size 2 regular.

Instagram Lately!

Happy Monday...

I've got a big Instagram round up for you today! These photos are from Instagram posts over the last few weeks. I've linked as many outfit items as possible and lots of things are on sale for great prices!

I hope you find some fashion inspiration! :)

I wore this pretty midi dress to dinner on Friday night. It's perfect for a warm summer evening and super comfy! It's only $20 and selling out fast...

I love this stylish & casual outfit I wore for a tour of the Yuengling Brewery with family a few weeks ago. Converse sneakers look great with denim shorts and are practical for long days on your feet!

Chambray Top (TJ Maxx), similar // White Denim Shorts // Converse Sneakers // Le Specs Sunglasses // Kate Spade Crossbody Bag, similar 

This LOFT white peplum top is so pretty and marked down to $20.99. Also, I found my beaded clutch at Kohl's for only $28 (I purchased mine at Nordstrom)! I receive so many compliments on this bag. The beaded detail is gorgeous!

This picture was taken at the Jersey shore last week. My friend and I escaped for a quick beach day. It was so nice to get some sun and relaxation! You can't see my bathing suit well, but it's a recent purchase from Macy's. I love the orange color and crochet it's on sale and available in a bunch of colors!

Workwear Wednesday: Floral Skirt and White Blazer

Today I've teamed up with some friends of mine for Workwear Wednesday! We're sharing 5 different outfit ideas for summer work days. Be sure to stop by and check out their blogs, too!
I adore this classy and feminine outfit. It's perfect for summer work days, but also for various summer parties and events! A floral skirt is a summer wardrobe essential and I was thrilled to find this navy and white one at LOFT for such an awesome price. This Monochrome Floral Flippy Skirt is on sale with an extra 40% off bringing it down to $23.99! All sizes are available so grab one before they're gone!! :)

My peach essential tank top is also from LOFT. I bought it to go with the skirt, but this tank will be worn with many other outfits, too! It's a great layering piece to wear year round and it comes in TONS of colors! A white or navy top would go with this skirt too, but I like the pop of color for something different!
This gorgeous white jacket is from White House Black Market and is a great layering piece for summer work days. I love how it's sophisticated and chic at the same time. Blazers and light jackets can be worn with skirts, dresses and pants and instantly elevate any outfit! The length of this jacket is shorter than some other blazer styles, so it was perfect to wear with this flared skirt. A long, fitted blazer would look better with a pencil skirt. The price tag is high for this jacket ($150), so in all honesty, it may get returned!

 Here are some other more affordable white summer blazers:
Nordstrom ($58) // Macy's ($47.60) // Kohl's ($60) // Forever 21 ($32.90)

Red Midi Dress

I can't believe July is here already. I'm excited for the long holiday weekend! My bother's grad party is tomorrow, Sunday we have church and a cook out to go to, and no plans yet for Monday. What are you up to this weekend??

Today I have another festive look for you all. This LOFT Halter Midi Dress was an awesome find and a steal of a deal! It's marked down to $34.88 and an extra 50% off with code JULY4TH ($17.50!). All sizes are available in regular and a few in petite. I don't own any other midi length dresses but the style is trending right now so I thought I would give it a try. I honestly love this dress! The strappy halter neckline is flattering and the length gives it a fun boho vibe. This dress is perfect for summertime and can be dressed up or down. 
For jewelry, I went with antique gold. I think red and gold are stunning together! I love how my Trading Hope Ophelia Necklace looks with the dress. This brass necklace is beautiful and handcrafted in India. It's $32 and makes a great gift, too! 
My BP. Straw Fedora Hat has been on repeat all summer. It just seems to go with everything! I think it's adorable with this dress. It's $18 with free shipping. If you're looking for a summer straw hat, give this one a try! I'm really happy with it and obviously wear it a lot! Ha. 

Here's a better look at the Trading Hope necklace and matching earrings. It's a gorgeous set!
