I hope everyone is having a good week! Today I wanted to share with you the coziest. scarf. ever. and I’m not even exaggerating, this thing is huge and sooo soft and warm. As soon as I touched it, I fell in love and bought it in two colours haha! I already know it’s going to be a staple in my wardrobe through fall and winter, theres not question about it.
I kept todays outfit super simple since Peter and I shot these pictures right before we went grocery shopping, I love how the sneakers add a little interest to an otherwise plain look. I picked these up last week for only $15…how could I say no!? For the price I figured they would probably be a little uncomfortable, but I was pleasantly surprised(they have a memory foam insole!). In other news, tomorrow is Peters birthday and he still hasn’t given me any ideas on what he wants to do for it…so I guess I better start brain storming haha!
We are officially in the ‘ber’ months, which means fall has almost arrived! The weather is already feeling like fall here so I’ve broken out all my cozy sweaters and scarves. I wore this outfit last week and it was perfect because the temperatures were warm but we had a crisp breeze blowing though, which kept me from over heating in this sweater lol!
If you guys followed my blog last fall I was crazy for button front skirts, and this year is no exception. I found this one at the GAP and had to buy it, the colour is perfect for fall and I love that its corduroy. It gives me all the nostalgic feels from when I would wear corduroy overall dresses as a kid. I picked up this sweater from the GAP too because I loved the neckline detail, you can wear if off the one shoulder or as a boatneck, it looks cute either way!
Todays post is a very exciting one because I’m talking all about the biggest sale of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I’m going to cover what is is, how and when to take advantage of it, and what my picks are from the sale, so lets get started!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is unlike typical sales because Nordstrom releases all their brand-new fall merchandise at deep discounted prices for a limited time. After the sale all fall merchandise goes back up to regular price for the rest of the season.
When and how can we shop the sale?
For Nordstrom cardholders the early access sale started July 13th and runs until the 20th(tomorrow’s the last day). After that the sale opens up to the public from July 21st-Aug 6th, and then prices on the fall line go back up August 7th. The sale can be shopped in stores or on the Nordstrom website!
What are your picks from the sale?
Okay now for the fun part… I shopped the sale early and chose all my favourite items from their new fall line. If you guys have been following me for a while you’ll know that fall is my favourite season, so I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I get super excited to shop for fall clothing lol! I have bunch of picks from the sale but I’m breaking them down by category to make it a little less over whelming.
Tees and Tops
I chose mostly layering tees because thats what I live in during the fall and winter. They’re perfect to throw on with an oversized scarf, jeans and booties in early fall, and when it gets cooler just layer under a jacket or cardigan.
Sweaters and Jackets
In the fall I love wearing chunky knits, oversized sweaters and long duster cardigans in seasonal colours, like browns, greens and rusty oranges. Even cashmere is included in the Nordstrom sale this year, so if you’ve always wanted to get your hands on a super soft wardrobe staple, nows the time!
Dresses and Rompers
These pieces caught my eye because we are able to wear them right now, the floral romper is perfect for the summer but the other three pieces would be great for transitioning into fall too! Throw on a suede jacket, booties and a felt hat and your ready for the apple orchard!
I live in denim year round but every fall I always stock up on jeans in darker hues, they’re the perfect piece to compliment any outfit. I also picked a good high rise black legging because they’re great to wear with long sweaters and tunics.
Fall = Booties, Boots, and leopard print, enough said!
My absolute favourite thing to buy in the fall is blanket scarves, and Nordstrom has come through with some extra cozy ones this year(I can’t wait to be able to wear them!!). They also have a ton of cute sunglasses, dainty jewelry, and bags perfect for fall!
If you guys want a sneak peak at whats available in the sale two days early click here. You won’t be able to purchase until the 20th without a Nordstrom debit or credit card, but its smart to pre-shop because sizes sell out quickly once the sale opens to the public. With a sale this good, you won’t want to miss out!
Todays post is a mini round up of all my favorite buys under $50! Now that my holiday shopping has commenced I’ve been looking around for gift ideas for friends and family. But along the way I stumbled upon some items that I fell in love with/had to buy for myself, and share them with you! These would make great gifts for you to add to your wishlist OR to buy for any woman on your gift list!
SmashBox Primer Set
I actually picked up this Smashbox set for my birthday last month but wanted to mention it again because its actually a part of Smashbox’s Christmas gift sets, and the products inside are the best! This has quickly become my favorite primer and setting spray, and I don’t think i’ll ever go back to using anything else.
Ribbed Long Sleeve Turtleneck
This turtleneck is the softest most comfortable shirt I have in my wardrobe right now, I’m obsessed, and it’s at such a great price point! I love the turtleneck on it but it actually has some pretty great length to it too, so I bought a couple extra smalls ‘s to tuck into highwaisted pants at work, but also sized up and bought a few small’s (for extra length) to wear with leggings, they cover the bum and it makes for the coziest outfit!
Okay.. don’t kill me, but I’m raving about these jeans again (Ooops!). Old Navy Rockstar jeans are my absolute favorite jeans and they are soooo affordable. I recommend everyone give them a try because they fit every body type, tall, short, petite, and plus, they will have a size for you!
Warm and cozy plaid blanket scarf….need I say more?
I’ve been obsessed with bag pom pom charms for a few years now and this year is no exception, but I thought I would change it up and get a black one and I love the way it looks! It looks very chic and goes with every bag I own.
