White Out

Sharing My Sole

 
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.

 
(Psst: If you’re shopping dresses from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, this trapeze dress is my favorite. Also love this maxi dress and this one).

#NSale Shoes Under $100

Halogen Flats

 
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…
 
Love these Sam Edelman heels. They are the perfect height for work and I can’t pass up a nude shoe. Or leopard.
 
Need these Dolce Vita booties. The price point is amazing and they would be great with skinny jeans or a dress.
 
Love these open toe wedge booties.
 
Suede pumps for fall? Heck yes.
 

The Basics

Sharing My Sole

 
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.

Bloggers Who Budget: Summer Dress for Less

Sharing My Sole

 
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

Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

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!

 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 
1. SHOES
Let’s start with the best part, shall we? These booties and these flats are on my must-have list.
These leopard heels are killer and under $90.
Hunter Boots are a part of the sale. Heck yes.
These fringe sandals are the cutest.

 
 

2. DRESSES
This trapeze dress might just be my favorite thing (for under $40!)
I love this scalloped dress for a fall wedding. So ladylike.

 
 
3. BAUBLES
My favorite jewelry pieces from the sale are all the amazing gorjana pieces, especially this ring.  And this delicate necklace.
Also LOVE this watch.

 
 

4. TOPS
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.

 
 
5. BEAUTY
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.

 
 

Plum & Leopard

Sharing My Sole

 

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.

Swing Dress

Sharing My Sole

 

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.

Weekend Style

Sharing My Sole

 
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.
