SO, in case you live under a rock, or I am the only blogger you follow, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is going on now! It's pretty much the only sale of its kind. All brand new merchandise, currently marked down until August 8th, when they go back up to full price retail. I'm seriously impressed with the selection this year! Amazing prices, and Nordstrom has been completely on top up keeping the items stocked up, which is huge. All of the picks below are things I personally tried and loved, and wanted to share! These are all going to be fall staples for sure.
There is something that is just so fun about wearing all white in the summer. It brightens the day even more, and can be paired with pretty much anything. I paired it here with fun turquoise earrings and wedges, but I could easily see it with a bright colored heel and matching bag for a night out! So many options available!
Bringing this dress from day to night with bright orange heels and fun earrings! I swear, with how much I love this dress, I'm going to find a million ways to wear it over the summer! And I'm not exaggerating when I say how many compliments this dress gets. From strangers and friends alike. The yellow with the bright orange is definitely a new fave color combo of mine.
I'm jumping head first into the off the shoulder trend this summer. I usually try to stay away from super "trendy" pieces since they never last long, but I just can't help myself! Off the shoulder dresses are just too much fun! Especially this Cupcakes + Cashmere one. It's incredibly comfortable, the perfect color, and has just the right amount of twirl to it. I wore it a couple weeks back to Merrymead Farm, a local farm that sells ice cream and is so much fun to walk around! Another note about this dress, you will get so many compliments on it! I had someone stop me in Costco to ask me where I bought it! So you know it's a winner. And the little calf I met in the pictures below (who I decided to name Bessie), really liked it too! ;)
I will always have at least one pair of sunglasses on me in the summertime. Usually two. Plus the pair I keep in my car just in case. Clearly, I have an obsession with all things sunglasses. And in recent years, I've realized that it is so much better to invest in a good pair, rather than buy a bunch of cheapy ones. They always fall apart by the end of the summer, and are better to buy when it's a passing trend. But with the classics? Investing is the key. So I rounded up some of my favorite pairs of each shape below, in all ranges of price. And if you don't find a pair you like, click on the style to see all the options! Let's get shopping!

Dresses are ALWAYS my go to in the summer. Easiest way to stay cool and look amazing at the same time. But at the same time, I don't want to break the bank buying a million dresses. (Okay, maybe I would want to. But I shouldn't.) So I rounded up 20 summer dresses under $200 from Shopbop. I used to think Shopbop was only for super expensive clothes and big name designers (which I love to stare longingly at), but thankfully for my budget, they have SO many fabulous options that won't break the bank. They even have a running boutique called Fashion Finds under $200. Major win. And I apologize in advance for putting so many fun and pretty dress options into one post ;) Happy shopping!
