#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!

How cute are the bell sleeves? Such a fun detail that makes this dress unique.
For jewelry, I went with my Trading Hope Ophelia earrings/necklace set. I've styled this set a lot on the blog lately! I guess that shows how much I love this jewelry and how versatile they are! They are gorgeous statement pieces and the earrings are big but very lightweight (which I like!). The earrings are $28 and the necklace is $32 (makes a nice gift...just sayin'). 
To make this dress fall appropriate, add a patterned scarf and your favorite booties! I LOVE this leopard scarf (also part of the #nsale).

  1. Oh my goodness! Love this color and dress Tamara. And those leopard shoes you mentioned are way too cute. Need to go grab them before they're gone. 😘

    1. Thanks so much!! Yes, sizes are limited now in the flats, but they should restock on Friday when the sale opens to everyone! :)

  2. Great look! I know what you mean about wearing shapeless dresses. When it's hot outside sometimes I don't want my clothing to touch me! haha but this still looks very stylish.
    I just shopped the NSale for the first time this year and can't wait for my stuff to come in!

    1. Hi Kristin! Thanks for the nice comment...I'll be sure to visit your blog to see all your purchases!! :)

  3. This dress may be one of my favorite things ever seen on a fashion blogger! The color is one of my faves for Fall and Winter. And the style, cut, hemline, bell sleeves, back detail are all so magnificent! It totally speaks for itself. I am in love with your dress!

    Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. I hope you will join me again this week!


  4. This dress is a stunner! I'm loving the color and sleeves most!
