Suede Mini Skirt

These are definitely two of my favorite pieces from this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I immediately fell in love with the color of this blouse, and the little bow details on the sleeves. It's girly and flouncy, which is basically what I look for in a top! And then there's this skirt. It has such a seventies feel, and can be worn so many ways! The color isn't one I usually go for, but I'm so glad I did!

Vintage DVF

Taking a break from Anniversary Sale content to bring you this amazing vintage dress, that has a fun story behind it! So this Diane Von Furstenberg only recently came into my possession. It actually belonged to my grandma, and she bought and wore it over FOUR decades ago!  (Proof that DVF knows what she's doing, and that my Grandma has always been stylish.) After staring longingly in the closet for a couple years, my mom off-handedly asked if I could have it, and this beauty became mine. (I honestly never thought I would say that I own a DVF wrap dress!) I'm utterly obsessed with how bright and fun this dress is. And how comfortable and easy it is to wear! Anyone want to invite me to their summer wedding so I can wear this beaut?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Dressing Room Try-On

OKAY. In case you haven't heard yet, it's time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Right now, it's early access for Nordstrom card holders, but it opens up to the public on July 21. Things do sell out quickly, but sometimes they do get restocked throughout the sale!
I went yesterday, and I have to say, there are some pretty great picks this year! I felt kinda "meh" about the shoe and purse selection, but everything else was A+. Below are some of the things I snagged, and absolutely love!
Also, I'm going to keep a running page of my favorites here, and will update it throughout the sale!

So I wasn't sure about this top at first, but I fell in love with it once I put it on! The color is so pretty, and it has a sweet bow detail on the sleeves. (It also comes in blue.) And this skirt is amazing. The color is so rich, and it's going to be perfect for fall! (It also comes in burgundy.) Both run true to size.

As you can tell by my face, I loved how fun this top is. Big bell sleeves, a fun bow detail on the back, and a gorgeous color! I was sold. Runs true to size.

I am absolutely obsessed with this sweater. It is ridiculously soft and cozy! It comes in 6 colors (I'm wearing pink), and is under $25! I'm normally a medium, but I grabbed a large in this one for that extra slouchiness. 

With the amount of love this cardigan is getting online, this one is going to sell out fast! It's longer (covers the butt) and has a nice weight to it. I love that it isn't a "typical" cardigan, and adds a little more fun to the outfit! Runs true to size.

Everyone needs a basic, staple cardigan. And this one, which is $31.90, comes in six colors! It's also longer and covers the butt, and can be worn with so many different outfits. I got black because I seem to wear black cardigans with everything come fall/winter! Runs true to size, can size up if you want it more oversized.

I have a love affair with scalloped edges. And while it's kind of hard to see them in these pictures, this adorable sweater has a scalloped neckline and hem! This one also comes in six colors (which I didn't know until right now, and now I want them all). Runs true to size.

Can you tell yet that I completely love the bell sleeve trend? I love the black with white trim on this one! It's fitted throughout the body and arm, and then opens to the bell sleeve. And this one comes in three colors! Runs true to size.

So, this is definitely my favorite purchase of the bunch. Cashmere, pink, bow detail, and under $100. I mean, do I need to say any more? OH, and it comes in 7 colors. Is it excessive to buy them all? Runs true to size.

The sale always has amazing deals in the beauty section. I stocked up on brushes for my Clarisonic, because the deal was amazing. I also grabbed the Drybar full size Fave set, because it has the three products I've been wanting to try! Win! And oh, that Diptyque set. Aka, the one that sold out on the first day last year. It's essentially a set of mini versions of their most popular scents. The perfect way to pick a favorite without spending the money to buy a big one!

Now is the time to stock up on essentials! All of these are amazing deals, and all so soft! I highly recommend browsing through the lingerie section, because most of these things are only on sale during the Anniversary Sale!

Okay, the best for last! Everyone always raves about this Nordstrom pajama set, so I knew I wanted to check it out while it's on sale. And guys, it is so soft and comfy! I totally understand now why people talk about it so much. The set comes in four colors, and I got it in a medium, for maximum coziness.

WHEW, okay, that's all for now! I would love to know what you guys are snagging and loving at the sale! And if you're waiting for it to open to the public, don't stress! Like I said, so many things get restocked. And you can check out my shop page here, which I'll keep updated as things sell out and come back!

Have a great weekend all!

Embroidery and High Waisted Shorts

It feels so good to get back to blogging and taking pictures again! This was my first time shooting in Nashville, and I loved it. I don't think I'll ever run out of places to take pictures here!
This is my idea of a perfect summer outfit. A breezy shirt, white shorts and some comfy sandals. Add in simple earrings and a bright purse, and I'm all set!
