Navy Blue Midi Dress

7.20.2016

I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Brand and I are back in Michigan and I can't believe it is already Wednesday. When we are home (or on any vacation for that matter) the weeks go much too fast. It's been nice though, enjoying the perfect summer weather, spending some time on the lake and hanging with friends and family. Exactly what I wanted this trip to be. 
So on to this dress...when I first saw it hanging I was kind of into it, when the sales lady hung it in the dressing room, I looked at it and completely questioned my decision, but then I tried it on and basically fell in love. The fabric is super forgiving and completely flattering. I definitely think it is a dress that will be worn quite a bit for many different occasions.

Little Black Romper

7.15.2016


When I purchased this little black romper, I knew I would for sure get some use out of it, but can I just say it's quite possible the best purchase I've made in a very long time. 
I am constantly reaching for it. Whether it's to run to the grocery store with some tennis shoes or out for drinks  with a pair of heels, this romper can seriously go anywhere. 
Pretty sure a little black romper is just as important as the always necessary little black dress. 
And on that note, TGIF! Brand and I are headed back to Michigan for the next week and I can not wait. Aside from getting to see my family, I just cannot wait to experience some real summer weather. The 106+ degrees is getting to me and I am more than ready for some 80 degrees and Lake Michigan. 
Hope everyone has a great weekend!




Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

7.14.2016






It's finally here...The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

To be 100% honest I've never really shopped this sale or even understood what it was all about, but after all the hype around it this year, I decided to dive right in and see what everyone is obsessing about. 
So, come to find out, the great thing about this sale is that it's not last seasons leftovers, it's the brand new pieces for next season that are on sale prior to the price going up...how great is that?
If you want first dibs on any of the pieces you have to have a Nordstrom debit or credit card, which you can apply for here, otherwise the sale goes live to the public July 22nd. 
After doing a quick browse online this morning, I've found so many great pieces that are making me wish fall was a lot closer than it is. 
I'm completely obsessed with the Double Breasted Pea Coat above and for under $40 it will definitely be making it into my fall wardrobe. 



This Waterfall Vest is another item I am definitely going to purchase. It's the perfect layering piece with endless styling options for under $60.



If there is one thing I believe everyone should have in their fall/winter wardrobe, it is a leather jacket.
It is the one piece I look forward to and get excited about wearing. This faux leather jacket is the perfect piece to get started with for only $65.



Two things I've been obsessed with lately, blush pink and bodysuits. With this jacket and this perfect Ballet Bodysuit...
I will be more than happy to carry those obsessions into fall.

Will you girls be adding anything to your fall wardrobe from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? If so, I would love to hear!

Polka Dot Pants

7.13.2016

I wouldn't say polka dots are my favorite print. I can appreciate them, but it's never really a print I am drawn to. Then there is the fact that these are cropped wide leg pants...I'm short so cropped isn't always my friend, especially when it's also in a wide leg (I do love a wide leg though), but for some reason when I saw these hanging at Nordstrom I picked them up and tried them on. 
Surprisingly, I think they work and I was kind of thrilled about it. Another pair of wide legs that I can add to my collection.
 If I was tall I would totally rock these with my white Adidas sneakers, but that just wasn't working, so heels it is. 
Also, you know I'm a huge fan of a simple black tank and now we can add a simple white tank to that obsession. Definitely another necessity that I'm not quite sure how I lived without. 
Hope everyone is having a great week!
