Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Y’all! The moment is here… the shopping olympics, aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, is finally here!!! It’s time to get your game face on, and score some deals!

Going into this sale can be somewhat overwhelming, but no need to stress… I’ve done the pre-game work for you! I have scoured the online previews, and have narrowed down my top picks from what I’m seeing online!

Tops:

I’ve noticed Tie Dye is not going away for fall, and to be honest, my little 70’s-loving soul is HERE for it!! I am also loooving that Free people sweater. I scored one similar, from last year’s sale, and I wear it all the time! I linked a long-lined top from Free people in two colors, black and green. It looks like a great staple piece, with many ways to mix it up! The knotted back, waffle knit top looks so cute to me. I love the knot detail, and can’t wait to check that out in person. Last, I obviously had to throw in a couple of graphic tees, or it wouldn’t feel right-lol!!

 

Jeans/ bottoms:

Frame flares are back for another Nordy sale! They are one of my favorite pairs of jeans I’ve ever snagged.. sooo flattering on, and extremely comfortable! I get compliments on them anywhere I go! I have been lusting after those distressed free people skinnies since last year, but they sold out super quick, so I’m hoping to snag a pair this year!! The Mother frayed hem jeans caught my eye. I love the cropped flare, just an overall cool look. The white cropped denim is so fun for the end of summer, and such a great price, only $35! Now for the Spanx! This is the best time to get a pair because you get them at such a great price! Trust me, they’re worth it! As for skirts, I linked that Faux patent mini skirtbecause the color is too cool, and who doesn’t love a fun little mini?? I also HAD to include the suede BLANK NYC mini skirt! Afterall, it was my most shopped item from the sale last year!

 

Jackets and coats

First thing that caught my eye was that starry stunner! Its just too good not to highlight! Next, that deep green coat with a classic silhouette becomes a little edgy with the subtle black stars. Such a cool look! If you’re going for a leather jacket this year, the two ALLSAINTS jackets above are winners. A little higher priced, but still great deal on high-quality jackets, and they will be staple pieces you’ll wear on repeat. I linked a plaid blazer because I firmly believe every girl needs on for fall 😉. Then I also linked a long “dad coat” because I love the look, and this price 👌🏼.

Shoes and Handbags

The nude, croc embossed, heels are giving me suuuch 90’s vibes and I’m swooning! Same with the black strappy sandals with gold buckles. Both pair of heels are so chic, and completely stood out to me amongst the other heels in the sale. As for these two bags, I have heart-eyes over the stunning orange. The army green leopard print bag is perfect to carry everyday, and stands out among the average handbag, with an edgy feel and fun pop of color! The citrus color Frame bag has such a unique silhouette, and would make the perfect statement bag to any fall wardrobe. You could easily carry it in spring as well, which is a win in my book!

EXTRAS:

I wanted to highlight a few other things! First, this is a great time to load up on Commando and Hanky Panky undies, while they’re on major sale! Also, wanted to share this cute PJ set because lets face it, we are most likely looking at time at home this fall and why not be cute and cozy! Last, Le Labo fragrances are my ABSOLUTE fav, and they are offering two of their most popular scents for pretty much, the same price as one travel-sized perfume. They are a unisex scent, and I can assure you that you will love them.

I will be shopping the sale in-person come Friday morning, and I will give my opinions on the items when I see them in person, and let you know my absolute top picks from the sale! Happy shopping everyone! I can’t wait to see your picks!!

The Blazer Edit

The Blazer Edit

What is the must-have item for spring?? A good blazer!!! Whether you live in colder, or warmer weather, you can rock this trend. One thing to give an outfit a chic feel is to create layers. A blazer is the perfect way to do it!

There are so many ways to rock a good blazer:

  1. Throw it over a band tee and some edgy leggings, or a pencil skirt. This creates a more pulled-together look that could take you to from a day at the office, to social engagement, or dinner out!
  2. Put it with jeans and a basic tee for an effortlessly chic vibe.
  3. Here I put it over a faux leather body suit and mini skirt, giving an edgy/sexy  outfit for a date night out. IMG_7402
  4. You can dress up your everyday t-shirt dress with throwing a colorful blazer on, adding a springy element.IMG_3231

Even if you live in a hotter climate.. throw one over your shoulders to add that finishing touch of chick to your outfit!

The Paloma

The Paloma

It’s the freakin’ weekend (although it may just feel like a Tuesday… #quarantinelife), so you know what that means… time for a quarantini!!! This weeks cocktail of choice : The Paloma.

IMG_2616

I saw a friend of mine enjoying one of these on Instagram last week, and I’ve been dying for one ever since! I’ve mentioned before that I love a tart drink, and nothing says tart like fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. Fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice is like a little piece of heaven with its soury- sweetness, and makes the perfect cocktail for a warm Quarantine evening ;-).

Ingredients:

Kosher Salt

Tequila (I use Espolon).

1/4 cup of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice  (about 1/2 of a lime)

Topo Chico (or club soda)

Recipe:

First pour a little salt on a plate. Then add a little lime juice on the rim of your glass, and dip the rim of the glass in the salt.  Pour desired amount of tequila in glass. Add 1/4 cup grapefruit juice, juice from half of a lime, then fill the cup with ice. Now top off with Topo chico, give it a little stirry stir.. and you are ready to enjoy!!

Cheers!!!

How to Style a Staple Piece

How to Style a Staple Piece

It’s finally spring… the weather is getting warmer, the birds are chirping… Normally, a lot of our minds would be on spring fashion, and how to update our wardrobes! Even though we are stuck inside, there is no reason we can’t be outfit planning for future days, am I right?

I think right now, when it comes to fashion, a lot of our minds are on cute, comfortable items, that are BUDGET FRIENDLY! I have the perfect piece for you to add to your closet that will carry you from quarantine chic, to everyday fab (once we’re able to get out)!

The White T-shirt Dress:

85A9E00A-B92B-48D4-9416-9FBB9C3DC4E7

I styled it 3 ways: casual, dressed up for work / girls lunch/ meeting/ just feeling like a boss,  and a little dressed up (with the eventual patio drink in mind)!

 

This t-shirt dress is the perfect item to thrown on with ease and go about your day. In quarantine, it would the perfect thing to throw on to be comfortable but feel normal (i.e. out of pj’s and house slippers – my current #ootd). Not only is it budget friendly, it is a great staple to carry you into summer months and better days!! 🙂
