The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year is just too good so I decided to do another post pulling a few more of my picks from the sale. To be honest, I missed some of these the first go around and just discovered them in the sale (maybe they were added later!). There’s only a few more days left to shop the next season’s biggest trends and staple pieces already marked down! I’m really loving these short sleeve printed blouses and long sleeve loose blouses. They come in a ton of colors which is perfect for me since in the fall/winter, they’re really all I wear with jackets overtop. I also love this long cashmere sweater – this is so cozy to wrap up in or dress up with some booties (also in the sale!) to head out for dinner. The athletic gear selection is awesome – I can’t believe these Nike capris are only $39! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Beauty Exclusives, or even if you have, I highly suggest perusing through. Chances are, lots of your favorite products and lines are included. Some of my favorites include this Nars Palette, my signature Chloe perfume set, the Clarisonic, and of course this chic tray for organizing your new goodies. This Smashbox brush set is also one of the top selling items in the sale!
What have you guys scooped up? I would love to hear! If you missed my first NSale post, head over to read it here.
The moment I spotted this dress at the Lou & Grey store, I knew it was coming home with me. It’s that perfect amount of comfy & casual, mixed with the “I’m still put together” look – which is exactly what Lou & Grey’s mission is. I’ve worn this dress several times already! A basic striped dress like this should be a staple in your closet and an easy go to for when you’re in a time crunch getting ready or just want something comfortable to throw on. I also just need to rave about this Henri Bendel tote for a few. Their team sent it to me a few weeks back and I haven’t put it down. It’s come with me everywhere, from NYC, to meetings, work, day trips, and more. It’s the perfect size + has an incredibly durable frame. I highly suggest picking up one of the HB totes! This striped one is on sale for half it’s original price.
I’ve been dying to wear these lace up turquoise heels and finally had the perfect opportunity with this Amy Matto printed shift dress. Amy Matto is a new to me line that is based and made right in NYC. Her pieces are so comfortable and versatile. I’ve worn this dress a few times already, but in a different way each time. It pairs perfectly with sandals for a more casual look and is perfect for those days when putting together an outfit just isn’t on your agenda! I also have this dress of hers and it is one of my favorites – the perfect fit and structured just right!
Also, I am so excited to announce I’m going to be doing a hair styling video with Garnier coming up in the next few weeks! We’ve narrowed down my look to either a Seasonal Transition or Date Night. Which would you rather see? Let me know over on my facebook page!
I was doing some poking around the web and noticed some great pieces on sale. These two outfits above are a mix of sale pieces from Shopbop + Jcrew – both are having incredible sales right now! This maxi pink coverup can double as a dress for weekend errands. Throw it over a cute suit so you can head straight to the pool. Jcrew’s panama hat is a closet staple – this one with the citrus hued green ribbon is on sale with an additional 40% off! I love easy shirtdresses - this navy Parker one from Shopbop is 70% off and still available in all sizes! I have been using my Rebecca Minkoff mini mac all summer long – love this minty hued one. Top off your polished look with a cute pair of d’orsay flats, that can transition to cocktail hour or dinner after your desk!
I have been a long time fan and follower of Ashley Lemieux, founder of The Shine Project. She just launched a new division of the company called Threads, which gives at risk youth jobs and helps them pay their way through college. The collection features a seven t-shirts designed and made by the students. Each tee represents a student that designed it and their life. The stories are powerful and inspiring, full of passion, dreams, and hopes of bright, successful future. When Ashley contacted me asking if I’d support and share of the tees, it wasn’t even a question. I am so honored to be involved in this campaign in supporting these youth, many of them first generation college goers. To read their stories and see more of the shirts in the collection go to The Shine Project.
I also promised to share the cutoffs I DIY’ed – well here’s the final result! I spent a few hours ripping them up and honestly had such a blast. I don’t normally sit down and get into a DIY kind of thing, but this one was fun! I also wanted to share with you guys a new jewelry service I discovered – Rocksbox! Rocksbox is a monthly subscription which you pay a flat fee to receive 3 pieces of jewelry hand picked by a stylist for you based on your preferences. When you’re ready for new pieces, you send the box back! If you want to keep any of the pieces, you just don’t send them back & you are charged for them at 20% off retail price. I’m testing it out over the next few months and so far love the pieces I’ve gotten, like this Gorjana ring. If you want to sign up, you can get your first month FREE by going here.
