Shopping | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top 15 Picks


I shared my wear-to-work picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last week, but since today is the first day of public access I thought I would share a quick post of my favorite things. Ie. Not just office wear, but my general favorite items from the Nordstrom Sale. I don't want to overwhelm you guys with Nordstorm sale content, so I've narrowed it down to my top 15 picks from this year's NSale. You can shop my 15 favorite items in the widget below (just click through!)

Some highlights I want to mention about my favorite items:


1) The La Mer Set: 
This is probably the #1 item from the NSale (in my mind) and definitely the thing I would most recommend if you are only going to get one thing from the Nordstrom sale. La Mer cream is hands down the best face cream out there. Just google it- the results and reviews are incredibly. It is however extremely expensive (at least for my tastes) so getting this set for $55 less than you would normally spend is awesome. I am buying two so that the cream lasts me for a while!



2) The Tory Burch Riding Boots:
Order these immediately as they sell out every year. I bought last year's TB riding boots in the cognac color, and am going to get this year's in black. They are, quite simply, the perfect fall boot. I wore mine literally 5x a week last fall/winter! 


3) The Zella Moto Leggings:
Zella leggings are considered by many people to be the best leggings out there as they are comfortable, stay in place, and hug in all the right places. I have their basic leggings (and agree with all of the above) but I love the idea of adding these moto detail ones to my wardrobe. Worn with boots and tunics these would be perfect all fall and winter long.

4) The Michael Kors Trench:
FINALLY. I have been looking for a cute rain coat with a hood for the past three years (...since i moved to Raincouver; I mean "Vancouver"). This is a classic cut trench in a classic color and actually has a hood. This is a must-have if you live in the Pacific North West! 

5) Good American High Waist Skinny Jeans:
I have been wanting to see what all the hype is about with Good American jeans for quite some time. (Do they really flatter every body type?!) The price tag has stopped me from pulling the trigger on these jeans, but with the NSale pricing they are definitely worth trying out! If you are interested in hearing more about how these jeans fit tune into my instagram today (See more below!)

As someone who does not have early access to the sale, today is my first day to shop! I will be heading to Nordstrom today to try on the items I didn't want to order without seeing how they fit first. I will be doing try-on sessions in my instagram stories, so be sure to follow along to get the inside scoop on how these items look in real life, as well as all the details about sizing and quality! I plan to start getting the instastories up around 11am PST (and of course they will stay up for 24 hours).

Happy Shopping!!!


Weekend Wear | Shirt Dress









Dress c/o // Wedges c/o // Choker Necklace c/o (20% off with code LEGALLEE) // Similar Handbags (1), (2)

This dress arrived from The Mint Julep Boutique last week and I couldn't wait to share it with you all. There is something so timeless about a shirt dress; I own at least four!  What really drew me to this one is the trapeze cut. Trapeze / flared dresses have been on repeat in my closet this summer. I love the loose fit and they are so flattering! This dress does run large, so size down! For reference, I am wearing a medium, but definitely should have gone with a small. 

I think what I love most about shirt dresses is that they have that perfect balance between business and casual. This is a dress I would feel comfortable wearing to basically any weekend event; from brunch, to meetings, to running errands. To make it even more summery and casual weekend ready I styled it with my favorite choker necklace and these gorgeous gold strappy wedges. I swear by wedges in the summertime (noone wants to be out and about in heels!) These gold ones are great because the gold basically acts as a summer time neutral, so you can wear them with almost anything! 

 I wore this exact outfit to meet friends for drinks on Friday night and it felt like the perfect outfit because I was comfortable all night long. I actually walked about 2 miles from where we were to where my condo is and my feet didn't hurt at all!! 

In other news, I am off to San Francisco / Palo Alto tomorrow!! I am so excited for a mini-vacation (I am going just for 4 days). A friend of mine moved there two years ago, so I am going to visit him and can't wait to check out the city! Be sure to follow along on instagram for stories and updates on my trip. If you have any last minute suggestions of things I need to see / places I need to go, let me know in the comments below!

Instagram Lately - July 2017


Hi all! It's been a while since i did an instagram roundup, so I figured it was time to do another one! Many of the items I shared in my photos have gone on sale since I shared them on instagram; so now is a great time to shop!


Sweater // Ripped Cuffed Denim // Heels (valentino dupes!)

Can we all just agree this is the greatest sweater of all time? Yes? Good. It also happens to be the softest thing I have ever worn. *swoon* It is on sale right now, so get it ASAP!
 


I found this hat a few weeks ago and it has become a summer staple. I want to wear this every time I'm at the beach or pool (...I mean, I would also like to wear it at work... but that may not go over so well ha!)


Sunglasses c/o // Dress (sold out in the pattern I'm wearing, but still available - and on sale - in other colors)
I shared this photo with Diff Eyewear last week. I only just learned about Diff and am obsessed. If you've been following me for a while (especially on twitter and on IG where I talk about it more) I am really passionate about companies that do good in the world. Fashion & charity can go hand in hand and I love companies that embody that. For every pair of Diff glasses sold, a pair of reading glasses is donated to someone in need. Cool eh?


This lace off the shoulder top is perfect for a summer weekend. I wore this on Saturday to run errands (like picking up the prettiest bouquet) and while hanging out with friends at the beach. I love off the shoulder when I'm out in the summer so that I can actually get a tan! 


 Dress // Heels (Valentino dupes!)

I had to snap a selfie of this gorgeous dress I found a couple of weeks ago. It can be to challenge to find wear-to-work dresses that are trendy but still office appropriate. This dress is perfect for a summer  day at the office. Bonus? It's under $60!!


This top is a favorite for creating a trendy work look. I've worn it on the blog before here, and earlier this month I wore it to the office with the navy skinny pants and heels pictured above. Right now this shirt is 25% off! 

One of my favorite cafes in Vancouver - Olive & Ruby - has the coolest hanging chair. Grabbing a cup of coffee and swinging in this chair has got to be one of the most relaxing things! Sadly the top I am wearing here is sold out, but keep your eye on it for a re-stock!
Top 

Just cruising around in one of my best summer 'steal' purchases to date. This top is a dupe of the JCrew version and is under $15! 


This is actually a throwback Thursday photo from my trip to New Orleans in March (see my blog post on the trip). My friend Maddie and I were walking down the street having had a few too many hurricanes when she spotted this nook in the wall. She decided that I just HAD to climb up in it so she  could take a photo haha. I am glad she did as I love this shot! Let me tell you though, getting down from this was not so graceful! 

That's it! Hope you liked the roundup! And be sure to follow along on instagram for more. XO
