NSale Picks - Round 2

Hi Everyone, and happy Friday!
As I'm sure you've already heard, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (#NSale) opened to the public early this morning, which means that those of you who don't own a Nordstrom credit card or debit card can now shop the huge selection of brand-new items (including several designer items) at deep discounts -- some of up to 50% off! Woohoo!
Much of the sale consists of newly-released Fall merchandise -- boots, scarves, sweaters, and coats galore -- but there are also so many other great, year-round staples that are worth a glance! 

Me personally? I'm a lover of all things feminine, classic, and beautiful through and through, so I tend to gravitate more towards the clothing and accessories that best embody this and that are also versatile as much as they are pretty. And while I love to throw on a good pair of jeans, booties, cozy sweater and blanket scarf during the cooler months (who doesn't?) I find myself reaching more for dresses or skirts that I can simply layer as needed with thick tights, long-sleeve shirts/blouses, cardigans, and coats. It just feels more "me." 
So, after culling through the hundreds of sale items (whew!), and without further ado, I have compiled "Round 2" of my top picks for you -- and surprise-surprise, they're uber!

Shop my picks:

How darling are these two sets of dangle earrings? They would add just the right touch of sparkle and flair to any outfit - so pretty! And the ruffled, blush blouse? Swoon! It would look so lovely on its own or paired under a cream blazer or coat. I'm also loving all of the soft grey and camel hues in the pencil skirts and sweaters, which are perfect, classic neutrals for the office and for every day-wear. And if you follow me on Instagram, you no doubt already know my passion for fit-and-flare dresses...I think this gorgeous orchid/fuchsia one needs to make its way into my closet stat!

What about you, which ones are your favorites? I'd love to hear from you!

Before I wrap up, remember: 

If something you've been eyeing is already sold out, don't despair; keep checking back for possible re-stocks. (I've seen several items already pop back!)
The sale runs through August 7, and prices go back up August 8. And who likes to pay full price if they don't have to? (*crickets*)
Exactly. ;-)

Happy shopping, and have fun!


Instagram Round-up / NSale Picks

Happy Sunday, Everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! My family and I spent a good portion of the weekend visiting a couple of local museums and neighboring gardens in L.A. including The Natural History Museum and The California Science Center, both of which were really fascinating and quite the adventure for my toddler-aged boys (their faces were priceless as their eyes first gazed upon the massive dinosaur bone exhibits!)  It was fun, educative, exhausting, and so very worth it. If you've never been, I highly recommend a visit.
To wrap up the weekend, I wanted to do a quick blog post with a round-up of my recent Instagram outfits. I realize that not everyone uses the option to view/shop my products in each of my photos, so these round-up posts will list all of my items and allow you to directly click on the them instead.

First, though, let's quickly talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka the #NSale on social media) that is currently underway. As one of the largest, annual sale events, there is a lot of hype surrounding it, and for good reason, too: you can get phenomenal discounts (we're talking up to 50% off) on newly-released, predominately Fall fashion trends, including several designer items that are offered exclusively by Nordstrom. It's a great time to snag your favorite designer boots, bags, sweaters, scarves, coats, and more at a fraction of their normal retail price! If you're a Nordstrom cardholder, you gain early access to the sale before the public and have a better chance of securing your favorite items before they sell out, and trust me, several items always sell out. The sale then opens up to the public.

Here are the key dates in case you missed them:
  • Early Access (cardholders only):  July 14 - July 21
  • Public Access:   July 22 - August 7
  • Prices Go Back Up:   August 8
Below are some of my favorites from the sale -- a few Fall basics mixed with feminine, dressier pieces.
