Good morning everyone, and happy Friday! This Friday is extra special to all of you shoppers out there, because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to the public! That's right, you no longer have to be a Nordstrom cardmember to shop this sale! For those of you who missed my last post on what the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary sale is all about, you can check out more info on it and all of my favorite picks HERE. I have also added some more items I came across since I originally posted, so be sure to check it out. Today, I am going to do a little try-on with the items that I bought from my Nordstrom haul with multiple ways of styling them for fall. I love how versatile all of these items are, and there are definitely more ways of styling each of these items, but I figured ten mirror selfies would be enough - hehe! I also want to point out that there are mixed reviews about all of these items on the Nordstrom website, and I will definitely be giving you my honest opinions about the quality of all of these items. A lot of people seem to have complaints about sizing, so I will also tell you whether something runs larger or smaller than usual. Without further ado, let's take a look at some cute clothes!


2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul Try On






This has to be my favorite outfit out of the bunch. Pink has always been my favorite color, so I naturally gravitated towards these pieces!

Long Open Front Cardi - This chunky pink cardi is a must in my opinion! It is definitely oversized, so be sure to size down when ordering this one. Even though I was inside, I got quite warm while wearing this, so it would be perfect for someone living in a cooler region, or it would be nice for the winter for those of us living in the Carolinas!

Ruched Ribbed Body-Con Dress - This dress is seriously so flattering! I am always a bit nervous about figure hugging dresses, especially when they are more of a t-shirt material, but the ruching across the stomach area makes it so flattering! I would say this item is true to size, or you can size up if you want a little more wiggle room. You can go ahead and wear this piece during the summer and then layer it up with cardis for fall. It would look cute with any of the cardis I bought from this haul (see below).

Rose Corduroy Baker Boy Cap - There isn't much to say about this hat other than that it is adorable! baker boy hats have been on trend the past couple of seasons, and I am happy to see them stay! The rose corduroy fabric gives the basic baker boy look a fun and feminine twist, and I can definitely see me wearing this hat nonstop this fall. Bad hair day, not a problem! ;)

Blush Booties - I love these blush booties! They are so comfortable and a perfect everyday shoe because of the low heel. I saw a review online that said these were oversized, but I got my usual 7.5 shoe size and they fit perfectly.

Same cardi, different outfit! I love this outfit for an everyday look!

Long Open Front Cardi - (see description above)

Thermal Henley Top - This thermal top does not feel like your typical thermal - it is so much softer! I wasn't expecting it to feel this cozy, so I will definitely be buying this in more colors!

High Waist Distressed Skinny Jeans - I LOVE these jeans! High waisted jeans are a must for me with my long torso, and these are so comfortable and flattering. I found these to be true to size!

Suede Booties - These suede booties are so cute and go with everything! They are the perfect brown shade and are perfect for fall!

I love this colorblocked sweater for fall! It looks so cute with a mini skirt or your favorite pair of jeans!

Mock Neck Colorblock Sweater - I love the colorblock look, as well as these colors for fall! This item is true to size and fits perfectly!

Black Denim Miniskirt - This black denim miniskirt has some stretch, which makes it both flattering and comfortable! It is true to size and fits like a glove!

Suede Booties - (see description above)

Same skirt, different sweater!

Wrap Sweater - I love to wear this emerald green color during the fall and winter, so when I saw this wrap sweater I knew it was a must! I would size down in this one unless you need extra room for the girls!

Suede Booties - (see description above)

I hope you all enjoyed some of these looks I created for fall from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary sale! As you can see, it is so easy to create several outfits with just a few basics, so there is no need to buy an entire new wardrobe every season (unless you just want to :)). A lot of these items keep going out of stock, but keep your eyes open because they keep coming back in stock too! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites



It's that time of year again - the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here! For those of you who are not familiar, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale only comes around once a year, but it is definitely not your average sale. Most sales involve stores trying to get rid of items from the previous season in order to bring in new items for the upcoming season, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is giving you the opportunity to buy next season's newest fashion and beauty items at a discounted price! However, once the sale is over, all of these items go back up to their normal price, so you definitely want to buy all of your favorite fall goodies (sweaters and boots, anyone?) while the sale is going on.  For those of you who want to receive first picks of all of the latest items before they sell out, you can receive early access by becoming a Nordstrom cardholder by clicking 'here' and begin shopping today! For those of you who do not want to apply, do not fret! You can begin shopping the sale on July 20th, but beware - items sell out fast (I missed out on some of my favorites last year), and the sale ends August 5th!

Be sure to check back here and on my Instagram Page as I style all of the items I purchased. Most of these items come in multiple colors, so be sure to click around to find your favorites! You can also check out some of my favorite picks from last year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here. Without further ado, let's get shopping! :)

I hope you all enjoyed some of my favorite picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Be sure to leave me a comment down below telling me what your favorites were and which items you're looking to buy, or already bought, this year!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend soaking in the sun and eating some good food! I hung out with some of my best friends last night and we had a blast eating pizza and wings, and we also played video games of all things! I can't even remember the last time I played a video game, but I must admit that it was a lot of fun - haha! 

I wore this striped, navy matching set for Memorial Day and I am so in love with it! Wearing anything navy with stripes is a perfect understated way of dressing patriotic and can also be worn at any of your other summer events. The vertical stripes are so flattering, and the side slits on the pant legs add a flowy and breezy look that is perfect for summer! For all of you tall girls out there these pants are perfect for you! I have a long torso, which always makes it difficult for me to find high-waisted pants that actually cover my belly button. I also wore heels, which made the pants the perfect length (I am 5'7" if that helps).

Let's also not forget what Memorial Day is all about. Of course it is nice for us to have an extra day off of work and an excuse to go out on the lake, but let us also squeeze in some time to remember and honor those who have fought for our country.

I have you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and have a wonderful week this week!

xoxo

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited to announce that Jay and I have finally decided on a wedding venue, and we have our official date! I am not giving away too much yet otherwise that would ruin the surprise, but I will say that we are getting married in January in Wilmington, NC! We are planning a winter wonderland themed wedding, and we found a venue that is perfect for our vision. I also found my wedding dress a couple weeks ago, and as much as I want to show you guys, I am going to have to wait until my official wedding day blog post!

Now on to the outfit! This gorgeous white dress from Red Dress Boutique is one that you need in your life this summer! It is made from a lightweight cotton/linen material that is so light and airy, and the design of this dress is just too cute! I love the button details lining the entire front of the dress, as well as the cut out and tie front details. I think this would be the perfect dress for all of you brides to be who are having bridal showers during the spring or summer. Jay and I will be going to Charleston next weekend and I am definitely planning on bringing this one along! I paired it with these darling blue espadrille wedges and I am not lying when I say that they may be the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. The arch support for these shoes is amazing - giving these a double thumbs up!  


I hope you guys are having an amazing week thus far, and leave me a comment down below if you're interested in a wedding series on the blog!

Black Jumpsuit (also available in white) // White Blazer (similar here) // Black Handbag // Sandals (sold out - similar here)

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I wanted to share this black jumpsuit that I wore during our stay in Beverly Hills with you all. It is such an eye catching, classy piece that can easily be transformed from a day to night look. It also comes in white, and I am seriously considering getting that one too, because I just love it that much! This jumpsuit is such good quality for the price, and the lace details along the top makes it look a lot more expensive than it actually is. I wore a white blazer to make the look a bit more chic, and a pair of sandals to stay comfortable while walking along Rodeo Drive, but I think it would look even cuter with a pair of heels! 

Jay and I are still trying to make a decision on our wedding venue. Who knew that it could be so difficult to pick the place you are going to get married in?? We are finding that there are pros and cons to every venue, which makes it even more difficult to decide! Even though we are a bit stressed with nailing down a venue, we are loving the whole wedding planning process. It is so much fun to explore all of our options and to just spend a little extra time together! :) For those of you who have gone through this process, or are currently going through it, leave me a comment down below with your experience or any wedding planning advice!
