Are you Ready? Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 

Guess what girls, it’s that time of year again!… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The deals are out there to be had, so get shopping!

Some of the best deals I found are in shoes. I love these Sam Edelman leopard pumps ($90) and have had my eye on these Enzo Angiolini Ankle Strap Sandals ($64).  Or you could be more practical and go for the Hunter Rain Boots ($170) or the Nike Frees ($82).

In the market for a new handbag or wallet? I am obsessed with this kate spade crossbody ($99) and this everyday bucket bag ($32). Maybe you need to stay organized? Choose this multi-compartment kate spade tote ($220) and pair it with this adorable kate spade bow wallet ($85).

Ready for some jewelry? I have been obsessed with this kate spade watch ($117) forever! Because I mean happy hour is the most important hour right? And this Kendra Scott cuff ($33) is versatile and goes with everything! Lastly, if you need some sparkle in your life (and who doesn’t?) check out these kate spade glitter studs ($25).

I pulled together all the items listed above, plus a few more from the sale in the slideshow below. With brands like kate spade, gorjana, sam edelmand, michael kors and more, it’s hard sale to pass up! Check them out and enjoy shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Pink Floppy Hat on the Pier

Lately, my outfits have been centered around my accessories. Whether it’s a hat, a bag, shoes or jewelry, these accessories seem to be dictating the rest of my outfit and I kinda love it! It’s great when a statement piece can hold it’s own in an outfit. This weekend it’s all about my pink floppy hat!

PINK FLOPPY HAT ON THE PIER

I got this Pink Floppy Felt Hat from Nordstrom for only $28 this past week. I think it creates the perfect spring look paired with black and denim basics. It seriously saved my hair this weekend! As we were walking on the pier, the wind was blowing my hair everywhere! It was perfect to tame my mane and to hide my less than perfect hair day, but still not give me hat hair!

I chose to style this hat with my Old Navy Denim Jacket and Liquid Leggings, but I think it would look just as great with a flowy maxi or jeans and a tee. Floppy hats are going to be everywhere this spring and Nordstrom has an amazing selection at really affordable prices! Shop them here before they are all gone!

Valentino Rockstud | Look for Less

There’s one pair of heels that will always be on my wishlist, that’s the Valentino Rockstud Pumps! There’s two reasons for that… 1- these pumps are amazing and will always be in style and 2- they will stay on my wishlist because they are WAY out of my price range!

Valentino makes several variations of the Rockstud- kitten heels, T-strap, flats and many more! Each is amazing in it’s own way, but they run almost $1,000 each! Since I’m not going to be able to afford these anytime soon, I’ve been scouring the internet for a Rockstud look for less. Luckily I’ve found a few great alternatives!

The options below range from $18 to the REAL Valentino’s at $995. Can you spot the real Valentino Rockstuds? If not, each style (and price) is listed right below the collage. I’m personally partial to LuLu’s $34 version. Share your favorite in the comments below!

New Year’s Eve Party Dresses Under $100 | 2015

Now that I have all my Christmas shopping wrapped up, It’s time for me to focus on New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Eve is a magical holiday where we spend the night sipping champagne and contemplating new year’s resolutions. Every year it’s a great opportunity to hit the reset button and start the next year off fresh with some new goals.

Even if you haven’t decided what your new year’s resolutions are yet, you need to pick a dress. There are so many fun trends floating around this season that it’s hard to pick just one, but I’ve pulled together some of my favorite party dresses for 2015. A few of my favorites include the sequin ombre dressthe glitter jumpsuit and feather hem dress. Check out my picks below and share your favorites with me in the comments.

Holiday Jackets | 2014

It’s that time of year, holiday events and parties seem to be sprinkling everyone’s calendars these days. Holiday dressing can be a ton of fun, but it can also be a little tricky. So many holiday trends come in the form of tiny dresses and tank tops so it’s important to find the perfect layer to keep you warm on those wintery nights!

To help a sister out this year, I pulled together some of my favorite holiday jackets, all under $100! Some are dressy, some are comfy, but they are all adorable! As you can see, most include faux fur and sequins- just a couple of my favorite things! Share your favorite in the comments below and stay warm <3!

Top Gifts for Him Under $50 | 2014

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and a successful Black Friday Weekend! As you know, today is Cyber Monday and I suggest dedicating your lunch break to some sale shopping! It’s a great opportunity to get some names crossed off your gift list.

To get you started, I pulled together some of my favorite gifts for men- all under $50! This year, my husband and I are foregoing the large haul of gifts and sticking to stocking stuffers. This inspired me to pull together some fun, small gifts for the man in your life. The list ranges from festive boxers to martini tools, all perfect items for stuffing this year’s stocking without breaking the bank!

Fall Flats | Oxford Chic

I am fully embracing the flat trend this fall. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my heels, but some mornings it’s just a little easier to walk to work in flats.

One of my favorite flat trends right now is taken right from the men’s department, lace-up oxfords! But these flats are anything but manly- pastel, leopard, polka dots and sparkles are just a few ways to add a feminine touch to oxfords. I think the metallic pairs are a ton of fun, I snagged these Naya Tahlia Metallic Oxfords from Hautelook a few months ago and have been getting a ton of milage out of them, check them out in my Mint Tweed post!

Below, I pulled together some of my favorite fun oxfords for fall. I am obsessed with both the leopard pair and the gold striped pair!

Top Gifts for Her (Or You!) | 2014

What women want that’s a mystery men have been trying to figure out for centuries! I don’t think this topic is something I can easily sum up in a blog post, but I’m here to help you answer “what women want for christmas“!

I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but my Christmas shopping is already off to a strong start! Some of you might roll your eyes, but I live for this time of the year! I just love shopping for the perfect gift. It can be a lot of work, but nothing beats finding the ultimate gift that puts a smile on their face.

Below, I pulled together a complete collection of amazing gifts for any girl in your life. It’s important to keep in mind that every girl is different and therefore you need to pick a gift that suits her personality. Try using the collage below as inspiration. For example, accessories are a great gifting option (no sizing!), so maybe you decide to buy mittens. If your girl is a little funky, the bear mittens below would be perfect! But, if your girl is more classic, maybe a plaid print or leather gloves would be better. I love to get inspiration for ideas from the internet and then tailoring them to fit my friends and family.

Use this list to get you started, you do still have over a month until Christmas! :) Love an item below? Share in the comments!

Falling for Fringe

I used to associate fringe with summer, but those days are over. I no longer reserve fringe for coachella and days at the beach. Fringe is now for all seasons and all occasions, I even dress it up for special occasions!

My favorite take on the trend for fall is leather fringe. I am obsessed with the Forever 21 jacket and the Nikki Rich Fringe Top below. The leather adds a dressy, warm, fall element to the trend. And how fun is that pop of yellow fringed clutch? It’s definitely a statement piece and is the perfect accessory for that little black dress hanging in your closet.
