I love this jacket for fall for several reasons! 1) It stays pretty warm in Florida for a while, but I’m always cold.  This jacket is lightweight and perfect for layering!  2) I’m obsessed with olive green.  It looks great on just about everyone and is a gorgeous neutral for fall, while adding in some color to your wardrobe.  3) The draping is really pretty.  It honestly looks so designer for this price!  4) I love the functioning pockets!

Head over to my YouTube to hear more on what I have to say about this outfit, including the skinny on hemlines going shorter and how you should wear your jeans now to stay modern and current!

My Favorite Pajamas, Lingerie & Lounge Clothes on the Anniversary Sale!

lounge clothes lingerie

With the Anniversary Sale winding down a little bit, it’s easy to forget about stocking up on these staples.  This is the time that I love buying things that I need to replenish, while getting them on sale.  Here is a list of all of my favorite pajamas, lingerie, and lounge clothes that I use daily!

1) Hanky Panky’s: I wear these under jeans and looser fitting dresses and skirts.  They never go on sale, so this is the perfect time that I like to stock up!

2) Commando Thong: I wear these all the time!  I love them under white denim, dresses and skirts that are more fitted.  They don’t show any lines and are so comfortable that you don’t feel like you have anything on!

3) Natori Feathers Bra: I have worn this bra for years.  It has such a pretty lace detail, but is really soft on the inside.  If you have never been fit by a certified fitter in lingerie at Nordstrom, I highly recommend it.  9 out of 10 women are currently wearing the wrong bra size, and it makes a huge difference in the way you look, feel and the way your clothes fit, just to name a few!

4) Make + Model V-Neck Tee: Make + Model is a Nordstrom brand, and I am hooked!  They make the softest lounge clothes and pajamas ever.  When I get home from a long day, I grab this tee along with the pajamas listed below and call it a night.  They are SO soft and cozy, I just want to live in them.  I wish I could wear them all day!

5) Make + Model Sweatshirt, Joggers, Shorts:  These are all the items that I wear each morning/night around my house.  I tend to get hot when I sleep, so I don’t sleep in these, but wear them constantly!

My Top Beauty Picks from the Anniversary Sale!

1) Tom Ford Eye & Lip Set:  This set is worth buying for the mascara alone.  The other items are a nice bonus ha!  I tried this mascara about 2 months ago and can’t get over how long and full it makes my lashes appear.  It’s the best one on the market by far!

2) Simple Human Mirror:  This mirror makes it so easy to do my makeup.  The light is perfect, and I love that it’s rose gold.  So pretty!

3) Smashbox Light Your Look Kit:  I’ve used this eye palette for the last 6 months or so.  The colors are perfect for every day, and the size is equally perfect for travel.  It has gone everywhere with me!!

4) Illuminage Pillow Case: I got a couple of these last year around Christmas and now can’t sleep without them.  They stay cool and I especially love that my moisturizer stays on my face and doesn’t soak into the pillow case.  Mine are still in great condition and I sleep on them every night.

5) MAC Lip Kit: I’ve really been into nude lips and these mauve browns lately.  This kit is the perfect way to try out the trend at at great price for several items!

Top 10 Key Trends to Buy Now On Sale, Wear Now & Transition Into Fall!

anniversary sale nsale nordstrom key pieces

Now that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public and EVERYONE can shop, I want to share with you some of the seasons hottest trends and some key pieces that you should buy now on sale, wear now, and transition into fall.

  1. Stock up on ANKLE BOOTIES!  These are the perfect item to buy now and wear now.  We’re not seeing as many over the knee boots this year, but they are still in style, especially for all the colder climate gals.  These are my top 5 booties:

The BP Faren is only $69.90 and so comfy!  These run small, so size up 1/2 size.

This Vince Camuto is under $100, and also super comfy!  I love the side detail.  Runs large, size down 1/2 size.

Rag & Bone: a classic year after year and looks great with dresses, shorts, jeans!  Typically runs small, size up 1/2 size.

1.STATE: love these for warmer weather gals!  They runs TTS

Obsessed with these Vince Camuto and wearing below!  These run TTS and are super comfy!

Here is an example of a top and booties that you can buy now on sale, wear now, and take into fall!  The top is meant to be slouchy and runs TTS.  I’m obsessed with this olive green color; it also comes in 2 other colors.

2) OVER-SIZED OPEN CARDIGANS!  Wear these with a lace, silky cami and denim, or over a dress.  These cardis are the perfect layering piece for transitioning into fall!  Many of them run large, so I would suggest sizing down.

3) The HOTTEST DENIM!  Keep an eye out for high waisted, cleaner denim  with frayed/asymmetrical hemlines at the bottom.  Wear your denim at the ankle or shorter this fall!

4) All the SLEEVE DETAILS!  Ruffles, bows, cold shoulders, lace.  More is more with this trend!  I’ve linked a ton of cute ones!

5) SLIDES & MULES!  If you don’t already own a pair, you must incorporate these into your wardrobe.  My favorite pair are these leopard ones featured below!  Below are 2 examples of outfits you could pair them with.  See some of my previous posts for other outfits with slides!  The leopard ones run TTS.  I am a 6, and I took a size 6 in them.

Fit Tips on this look:  The jacket runs TTS, but I sized up in the denim.  I am normally a 24, and took a 25 in these.  The bag is not on sale, but is definitely my most FAV recent purchase!

Another outfit to wear mules or slides with!

How To Wear Denim On Denim + Enter for a chance to win a $1000 Nordstrom gift card!

off the shoulder chambray

Top: BP (under $50!) | Shorts: Express (on sale for $41!) | Necklace: Baublebar | | Belt: Hinge (color no longer available, but love this one!) | Sandals: Valentino; similar look for less here and here 

Spotted!  One hot trend that is making a come back is denim on denim.  Many people are curious how to wear this look.  There are a few things you can do with this look.  I’m wearing chambray mixed with denim shorts.  When you want to do more of a two tone look, make sure they are different fabrications.  If you want to wear a monochromatic denim look, that’s when they need to match.  You need to wear the same fabric when you want to wear it head to toe.  I love that look on the right person, but it’s not something I’ve tried yet.  It’s definitely a blast from the past!

Fit Tips: My top runs a little big, you can definitely size down.  My shorts run pretty TTS.  They do stretch out a good bit, so if you want to keep them snug fitting, be sure to size down!  My sandals run a little on the narrow side, but TTS.

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Monday babes!  Only 4 more days until Early Access for the Anniversary Sale!!  Be sure to follow along on Snapchat or Insta Stories for a behind the scenes try on party today and tomorrow of all my favorite Anniversary Sale looks!
