LBD Perfect for Everyday!

denim jacket baublebar gold necklace

Dress: Trouvé (also comes in burgundy!) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Denim Jacket: Express (under $100, love the hemline!) | Sunnies: Gucci | Necklaces: Lana & BaubleBar (under$50!)| Bag: Valentino (similar style) | Earrings: Argento Vivo

A good LBD can be hard to find, but this one is definitely a fab one!  I love that it’s cotton (so perfect for the summer heat), and that you can wear it dressed up or put on a pair of flat sandals for a more casual look.  The waist knot is great and hides exactly just what you want to hide.  I also like that it’s not too short, so it will work for some taller girls!  My jean jacket is always on major repeat, y’all I have worn this thing to death!  The hemline is so cute, and the fit is really nice.  Not too tight fitting, and the crop hits at the perfect spot.  Lastly, I can’t say enough about this BaubleBar necklace.  I’ve been mixing it with some of my nicer pieces, and I love the way it looks (it also looks gorgeous alone & not necessary to layer if you don’t want) You would never know it’s under $50!!

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Tuesday babes!  xoxo, Christian

Slouchy Sweater & The Best Denim!

nordstrom prada frame denim

Top: Free People | Denim: FRAME | Bralette: Free People | Earrings: BaubleBar (so fun and only $36!) | Bracelets: Kate Spade here and here | Sunnies: Prada | Shoes: Christian Louboutin get  a similar look for less here | Bag: Clare V (have used this so much!) 

All of these slouchy sweaters are getting me in the mood for fall!  They’re so cozy and comfy, and they really have me in the mood for some cooler weather.  I’m planning a couple trips up north soon, and I really hope it will be chilly.  Ha!  Wearing your sweater off the shoulder is the perfect way to transition it into fall with all of these fun bralettes.  I love that you can still be comfy cozy with this look, but a little sexy too.  Another trend I’m totally on board with is high waisted denim.  My all time FAV denim is now doing a ton of high waisted styles.  Frame Denim has been my go to for the past several years, and they still don’t disappoint.  The fit is on point for many different body types, and they have just the right amount of stretch, but don’t bag out on you.  If you haven’t tried them, you definitely should!

Lastly, I’ve really been into all of these blush nudes that are out now.  They look fab paired back to white in the summer, but also look just as great with black.  I love the contrast and also love wearing them with rose gold jewelry.  The fringe earrings, and the pop of leopard add the perfect amount of fun to this chic look!

Fit Tips: My sweater is oversized, and I would recommend sizing down if you don’t want it to look so big.  I’m wearing an XS.  The jeans run TTS and don’t stretch out.  My shoes also run TTS, however if you have wide feet or are in between sizes, definitely size up.  I’m a size 6 and I have a 36 in these.

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Sunday loves!  xoxo, Christian

bell sleeves choker dress

Dress: Leith (on sale under $50!) | Booties: Vince Camuto | Earrings: Argento Vivo (best hoops ever!) | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ 

I love easy pieces that I call pull out of my closet, put on, and be out the door.  This dress is one of them!  I love the choker detail on the collar and I’m obsessed with the cascading ruffle on the bell sleeve.  I grabbed my favorite hoop by Argento Vivo, a fun but comfortable bootie and this outfit was done.  So easy!  These hoops  have been my go to for the past year–I also have them in silver and wear non-stop!  My booties are super comfy!  They might be on back order, but take my advice, they are worth the wait and the sale price!  They run TTS.

Other fit tips: My dress also runs TTS, however it is on the shorter side and more of a junior cut.  I am 5″2′ and I’m wearing an XS for reference.

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Thursday babes!  xoxo, Christian

Floral Shorts + OTK Boots On Sale 40% off!

Top: Wayf | Vest: Trouvé | Shorts: Leith | Boots: Stuart Weitzman 40% off!! | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Gucci Sunglasses | Necklace: BaubleBar (under $50!) | Bag: Céline ‘Micro’ Luggage; similar look for less here 

This vest is such a staple piece for fall!  Let me clarify that you don’t have to wear it with shorts.  It would look great with skinny jeans or flares, depending on your height.  I would transition it into fall with skinnies only bc I’m petite and flares can be overwhelming on my body, but I like wearing them with more fitted tops.

I also looovvvee bringing out all of my shades of red and burgundy when fall starts approaching.  Give me all the red lips during this time!!  I thought the pop of red in these floral shorts were the perfect transition piece, especially since it’s still so hot out down here in Florida.  I recently wore them with sandals, and it was super cute!

Fit Tips: Size down in the vest (I’m wearing an xxs), size up in the Wayf top if you’re in between sizes.  The boots run TTS and are so comfy!  I’ve had mine for years and still love them!  The shorts run TTS, but size up if you’re in between.  Happy Tuesday loves!  xoxo, Christian

Ruffles, Leather & Pearls + My Trip to Seattle

Top: Leith | Skirt: Leith | Belt: Gucci; get the look for less here | Necklace: BaubleBar (under $50!) | Booties: Steve Madden; get the ones on sale here | Bag: Chanel ‘Timeless Classic’ Jumbo; love this one! | Sunnies: Prada | New lip color: Smashbox ‘Do No Wrong’ with ‘Safe Word’ Liner

I got my first taste of cooler weather in Seattle this week, and it really got me in the mood for fall!  I was out there for a quick 2 day trip for our Season/Shift Designer Event.  It was hands down one of the coolest things I’ve experience while working at Nordstrom.  The event was basically a preview of what’s to come for fall from all of the big designers like Chanel, Givenchy, Gucci,  Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, just to name a few.  The cutest cocktails were flying and models were workin it!  Another highlight of my trip was spending time in our flagship store, which is 5 levels, just FYI.  They just re-modeled the store and it was oh so cool!  Super modern with all the bells and whistles.  I definitely felt like I was in New York.  I was also able to connect with some friends that I used to work with.  That is one of the things I love most about my job–my co-workers.  I’ve met some of the most amazing people along the way, and if you stay with the company long enough, you run into old friends all the time.  It really is like a family!

I feel so full of fashion inspiration from my trip that I want to buy sooooo many new things for fall.  Ha!  One thing on my list was this leather skirt.  For under $100, it’s such a great price!  The leather is really soft and buttery, and I love the color, and since the cooler tones are really in style right now, I thought it would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  I thought it was perfect paired back to this ruffle top just to add the right amount of girly to this more edgy look.  Another trend to be on the lookout for is this style bootie paired back to dresses and skirts with bare legs.  It’s the perfect look for transitioning into fall!  Lastly, you can’t go wrong with this statement necklace made of draping gold chains.  It looks SO nice for under $50, and I’ve worn mine a ton!!

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Sunday babes! xoxo, Christian

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!

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!
