#NSale Outfit to Wear Now Through Fall

Top (on sale for $29.90) // Similar White Skinny Jeans // Satchel, and here in luggage color // Booties (on sale!) // Initial Necklace (on sale!) // Earrings // Ring // Bracelet Cuff // Sunglasses // Lip Liner + Lipstick

Happy Monday, friends!

I'm sure you've heard it a million times now, but what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't let you know that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public (so you don't need a Nordstrom credit card to shop)! I'm honestly shocked at how fast certain items sold out (like this striped tee and this cardigan). I was hoping more would be restocked and I was a little disappointed at how much wasn't! The take away from all this is that if you see something you like, GRAB IT EARLY and you can always return it if you change your mind. I wanted these calf hair loafers and I had the opportunity to get them TWICE and didn't. Now they don't have my size! 

Okay, so the good news is that the outfit I'm styling today is still available!! My top, booties and initial necklace are all in the #nsale and almost fully stocked. I grabbed this floral top to try on in stores but didn't have high expectations. Boy was I wrong! It is definitely one of those tops that looks way better on than on the hanger. The cold shoulder style is right on trend, but this blouse is unique with the deep v-neck and shorter length in the front. I think it is so flattering and perfect for summer days/nights and all through fall! It's on sale for $29.90 and I'm wearing a small for reference.

I absolutely fell in love with these Vince Camuto open toe booties. They are stunning! Vince Camuto always makes a great shoe and they are usually really comfy too. These are no exception! For the heel height, they are comfortable and supportive. I'm wearing the taupe color and I love how they go with everything and show off the stitching detail, but they also come in black and a gorgeous gray color. I would say these run true to size except they are a little narrow. I got an 8 instead of my usual 7.5 because of this. 

This spinning initial necklace is one of my fave #nsale purchases. It's dainty and beautiful for every day wear! The pendant spins with an etched initial on each side and one side with cubic zirconia. It's 14k-gold and on sale for $44.90. I think this is a hidden gem in the sale! It makes such a nice gift, too!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

7 #NSale Make Up Product Favorites

Happy Wednesday!

Have you all shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access yet?? If you don't have a Nordstrom card, don't worry, you can shop the sale this Friday when it opens up to the public! These are my favorite make up products included in the sale. There are some really good deals, especially the MAC and Laura Geller sets. I absolutely love the MAC Nice 'n Spicy lip set! The color is gorgeous for every day wear and it comes with a lip primer (I wear this primer under all my lipsticks). Also, the Laura Geller eye liners are usually around $20 a piece and this set has 5 liners for $30! I wear Laura Geller eye liner every day so I'm definitely planning to order the set (GREAT for sensitive eyes).

If you haven't already, be sure to check out this post for a round up of my fave nsale clothing, accessories and handbags!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Early Access Top Picks + Shop With Me

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (known as the #NSale on social media) is an annual 3 week sale featuring brand new fall and winter merchandise at discounted prices. Instead of starting at full price, these items are marked down FIRST and then prices go back up after a selected period of time!

What are the dates?
The Early Access Sale is for cardholders and runs from July 13-20. Only Nordstrom debit and credit card holders can shop the sale during this time. It's definitely worth having a Nordstrom credit card because you can shop this sale early and be sure to get your favorite items before they sell out! The sale opens to the public on July 21 and runs through August 7. After that, prices go back up.

What are the most popular items?
The most popular fashion items are boots and booties, scarves, basic tees, cardigans, denim and designer handbags. 

What's the best way to shop this sale?
There are definitely advantages to shopping both online and in the store. I like to browse online first to get an idea of what is available and which items I have my eye on BEFORE going to the store. I must admit, it can be overwhelming in stores, especially if you go in without a game plan! A great way to shop the sale online is by visiting your favorite blogs (after all, we do a lot of work to make your shopping easier!). From there, decide which items are your favorites and what you would like to add to your fall and winter wardrobe, then head to your local Nordstrom to try things on! And remember, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, so grab your favorites before they sell out. You can always return and exchange items later!

Dressing Room Selfies

This is the best basic layering tee for your year round wardrobe! I bought last year's version of this tee and love it, but I like it even better this year. The material is definitely higher quality and I'm loving the side slit detail! This is the cordovan color and I'm wearing a size small. 

These are one of my favorite affordable jeans in the sale. I actually ended up purchasing them! I really like the medium wash and shredded bottoms of the pant legs. These jeans look great with booties for fall and winter + wear now with wedges, heels and sandals!

If you're looking for an every day neutral bootie for fall/winter, these are it. They are one of the more affordable booties in the sale and really high quality! What I love the most is the heel height...the 2.5" heel is comfortable and almost feels like a flat bootie. They also have a fun perforation detail in the back. I bought these and will most likely keep them but I plan to try on more this weekend and compare.

Here's this tee in the hushed violet color and in a size medium. You can definitely size up or down, depending on how you want the fit. It's really cute over sized, but I ended up buying the small for a closer fit. I bought the cordovan color (I can't resist burgundy), but I may order this one too. 

BP. Pocket Tee // $18.90
This is definitely one of the most popular tees in the sale...I'm sure it will sell out, especially in the black + white stripes. It comes in a few other colors too (I LOVE the olive). This tee is so comfy and a great basic for the fall and winter seasons! I'm wearing a size small.

This is definitely one of my favorite tops in the sale!! I saw this in stores yesterday and thought I'd try it on. I ended up LOVING it!! The style is so unique and really flattering. It's one of those tops you can wear to lunch/dinner, going out, shopping, etc. Shorter tops are definitely coming back into style. I suggest wearing a mid to high waist jean with this so your stomach isn't sticking out (LOL). I didn't think twice about buying this top!! For reference, I'm wearing a size small. 

I like this top, but I didn't end up getting it. The tie fell at an awkward spot and showed my stomach (maybe I should have tied the knot tighter?). I tried on these high waist white skinny jeans to try fix the helped but I still wasn't thrilled with how it looked on me. It is a really cute top though and also comes in white! I definitely like the blue/white stripes better. I'm wearing a size small in this pic.

These are cute if you're looking for a distressed white skinny jean. They are not included in the sale, though. FYI- they are pretty form fitting and not very forgiving in the back!

This top is another favorite of mine in the sale. I ALMOST bought it and put it back at the last second. I'm rethinking that decision now! The ruffle bell sleeves are right on trend and absolutely adorable!! I'm loving the light blue color but it also comes in black, polka dot and floral prints. I'm wearing a size small.

This jacket is to die for!! The suede is beautiful and feels amazing on. It comes in gray and red too, but I like this spice color best! I'm wearing a xsmall in this picture because that's all the store had, but I would definitely need a small. It's a little pricey, but worth it if you're looking for a great moto jacket for fall. I didn't buy it, but I'm considering it!

This cami isn't in the sale but it's a great wardrobe basic for under cardigans, blazers, jackets, etc. Topshop sizes run pretty small. I'm wearing a size 4 but could probably use the 6. 

These distressed jeans are SO CUTE and affordable! I love the wash and frayed bottoms (see full length below). They are supposed to be cropped, but I'm 5'4" and they are ankle length on me. The reason I didn't buy these is because they can't really be cuffed with the frayed bottoms, so they wouldn't work well with most booties. They look awesome with heels, wedges and sandals, though. With booties, they would work better on someone taller.

This cardigan was one of the most popular items in the sale last year. I didn't buy it and regretted it, so I snagged one yesterday!! I live in these open front cardigans throughout the winter with jeans and booties. This one is super soft, has pockets and is the perfect length. The burgundy is gorgeous!! FYI- it runs big and I'm wearing the xsmall.

BP. Pocket Tee // $18.90

Here I'm wearing the gray color, also size xsmall. 

This is an adorable wear now and later dress + it has POCKETS! It is SO comfy and the ruffle detail is playful and feminine. It comes in 5 color options and I'm wearing the small for reference. Wear this dress with wedges or sandals now and open or closed toe booties in the fall!

Here's a round up of my favorite fashion items so far! The sale is SO GOOD this year!! Many of these I saw in stores and tried on and others I spotted while browsing the site. These photos are clickable...hover over the photo for the sale price! I'll be posting more on the sale in the next few days here on the blog and also on my Instagram and Facebook. I've only briefly looked at beauty products in the sale, but I'll definitely do a round up post on those, so stay tuned!

OKAY, who's going shopping this weekend!?

Always Latte

LATTE TEE: Nordstrom (on sale for $20), similar styles here + here // DENIM SHORTS: Levi's, similar // SNEAKERS: Converse // TOTE: Nordstrom // STRAW FEDORA: Nordstrom // SUNGLASSES: Le Specs // WATCH: JORD // BANGLES: Alex and Ani here + here, Wind & Fire here // RING: Baublebar // LIPSTICK: Stila (perla)

Is anyone else "always latte"?? LOL. I'm pretty much always late and now with a baby, it's even worse! I'm seriously impressed by people who get out of the house early every morning with young children! 

I absolutely love this casual latte tee from Nordstrom (it's SO me). It's really soft and comfy and on sale for $20. I'm a latte lover + I just think coffee tees are fun in general! This summer outfit is perfect for running errands, shopping, concerts, cook outs, and more. It's super casual yet looks put together and stylish! I wish I had blogged in this tee sooner because now sizes are limited. If Nordstrom is out of your size, Amazon has a few 'always latte' tees here and here (both under $20). Also, if you're looking for the perfect straw fedora this summer, this BP. one is it. It's $18 with free shipping and seriously goes with everything! I think it makes this outfit. 

This look is so easy to recreate. Just take your favorite tee, jean shorts, fashion sneakers and a fun summer hat and viola! There are endless ways to accessorize this outfit, too. If you're missing any of these items in your closet, I've got you covered! Everything is linked above and in the widget below for you to shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
