I have not purchased or worn a white sundress in years, but this one was just too lovely to pass up. And it’s just not like me to say no to a cute summer dress. I’m not sure why I’ve stayed away from all white ensembles in the past, but I think it has something to do with a fear of spilling red wine all over myself. Valid apprehension.
If you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet, then get to it! Prices go up August 3rd, so there is still time to shop some amazing deals for fall. My favorite part? Shoes, naturally. Here’s a round up of my favorite shoes under $100.
My favorite shoe find are these Halogen flats. So good for under $60 and they come in a bunch of colors and patterns. Blush? Yes please. And the black stingray print is my second favorite. Might just need those in my closet as well…
Whenever I’m in a style rut, I always return to the basics. Trends come and go, but neutrals are forever. Or something deep like that. I’m not sure why it took me til mid-summer to pull out my white denim, but here they are and they are now being worn on repeat. And yes, leopard is always a neutral.
The Bloggers Who Budget gals are back and this month and we’re styling our favorite summer dresses for under $75. I snagged this maxi dress at the beginning of the season for under $40 (!!!) and it’s been the perfect, breezy summer dress. So good that I might just get it in blue too…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here for all! I’d be lying to you if I said I haven’t been counting down the days for this sale to begin. It’s my favorite sale of the year. New fall pieces at discounted prices? Yes and yes. I’ve pulled together my list of must-haves and all the favorites on my wish list. Happy shopping!
It’s a great time to stock up on some basics like these tees or to great some great pieces for the fall. I adore this pleated hem sweater for under $60.
It’s hard to say no to the amazing beauty deals that are a part of the sale. If you don’t have a Clarisonic, I would highly recommend it.
Also need this nail polish set – Deborah Lippman polishes seem to stay on forever with minimal chips.
6. FOR THE BOYS
Now is a great time to think ahead to the holiday season and get a few gifts while they are on sale! Here are some picks for the men in your life.
I’ve been gravitating so much toward stripes all summer that this plum blouse was a refreshing change. Who can say no to a flowing, simple cami for summer evenings? That’s what I thought. Luckily this closet basic also comes in black, white and shades of blues, so it can be remixed all season and into fall.
This dress has been in heavy rotation since I scooped it up on major sale. (Under 20 bucks? Yes please). Initially I purchased it for a trip to New York because I figured it would be the easiest thing to pack, but it’s quickly become my favorite thing to throw on and run weekend errands. Or throw on and drink wine. Can you blame me? It’s the easiest and cutest thing for every occasion.
I swear it was Friday like five minutes ago, but Monday seems to have reappeared again. Let’s talk about this top for a moment, shall we? I found it on the sale rack at Anthropologie and quickly scooped it up, because I’m not going to say no to a simple cotton v-neck tank. And paired with my boyfriend jeans, it’s easy weekend perfection.
Hello Friday! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I was in New York this week for work. I’m happy to be back home and ready for a beautiful weekend.
A few favorites from around the web…
Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop the sale now. (It opens to the public next week!) Let me tell you, it.is.good. My wishlist is growing. I’ll have a full post next week on all of my favorites!
My stripes collection is continuing to grow and has now moved from t-shirts to skirts. So say hello to my new favorite summer skirt, a nautical take on a classic pencil skirt. Except this one is stretchy and goes perfectly with sneakers.
