1. This leopard jacket - I shared a picture of how I wore it to work the other day.

Build a Mixable Summer Wardrobe with 15 Pieces




It has been a few months since I put together a mixable wardrobe.  The last one I did was one of my favorites with blush/pink colors.  I tried to keep this one more neutral with summer khaki, whites, and black with a few prints.  In doing this - it really shows that with only 15 items - you can create 15 different looks.  And, all these pieces are budget items - except for the wedges.  The chandelier earrings are marked down to $20, the ruffled cami is only $10 (and comes in other colors), my favorite sweater - is marked down to $15 (and comes in three other colors).

Since this is a long post - don't miss my top 10 new arrival and sale picks at the end of the post.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dressing Room Selfies

nsale best deals floral dress bell sleeve sweater

 LOOK #1: ASTR THE LABEL FLORAL DRESS - UNDER $50
I do not typically wear dresses, but I saw this floral wrap dress that is under $50 - and I thought I would try it on.  I layered it over a white tee - but you could wear it without the tee.  My sandals are not part of the sale - but they are marked down under $50 - and they are probably the most comfortable sandals I have ever bought.  My mom just got a pair, as well, and she loves them just as much.  Just in case you are wondering - my watch is from last year's anniversary sale.  
Fit of Dress: It was a mix - but I would probably size up - and layer a tee under it (or t-neck and tall boots - for fall).

LOOK #2: LEITH MUSTARD BELL SLEEVE SWEATER - ONLY $32
I picked this sweater as one of my top picks the first day of the sale - and when I tried it on in the store, I was glad I picked it. It is a lightweight sweater - that comes in the most perfect mustard color that could be worn this fall with boots - and it is only $32.  It also comes in grey and off white.  
Fit of Sweater: True to size.

LOOK #3: TROUVE PEPLUM LEOPARD JACKET
I love leopard print - and when I saw this jacket I was a little undecided about how I felt about it, but once I tried it one - I loved it.  The peplum detail around the waist is so fun - and it looks great paired with a black tank and jeans  - and some burgundy pumps (that is how I wore it to work yesterday).  It is hard to see in the picture but it has an athletic-type banding around each opening - which gives it a sporty influence.  I highly recommend checking out this jacket. 
Fit of Jacket: True to size. If you want to layer a sweater under it or long sleeved top, I might size up.

LOOK #4: BLANKNYC SUEDE JACKET
I love short leather and suede jackets. This suede jacket is pretty much last year’s wildly popular suede jacket but without the belt. I actually prefer it without the belt - it makes it much easier to wear.  It comes in this great spice color, as well as grey and red. 
Fit of Jacket: I sized up - just to have room to wear a sweater underneath.

LOOK #5: KENNETH COLE WOOL COAT
I saw this sweater coat in the catalog before the sale - and was one of the items I was most excited about. I love the knit arms with the wool body. In person, I loved the color and the fit of the coat. I do have to mention that it was a little itchy for me - but with a long sleeve top underneath - that might fix the problem. 
Fit of Coat: A little big. I would recommend sizing down. 

LOOK #6: CHELSEA28 PLEATED BELL SLEEVE SWEATER
This updated bell sleeve sweater is a favorite of mine. When I tried it on - my mom said - now that is you.   I love the pleating detail on the sleeves. It also comes in navy and burgundy, and hopefully they will re-stock the blush color, which was my favorite. There is also a dress version - that would be so fun this fall with boots. 
Fit of Sweater: A little loose in my typical size.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A NORDSTROM CARD
I know you have probably been overwhelmed with everything Nordstrom Sale - but if you do not have a card - you can still see the items - and add them to your "Wish List" - so you are ready for public access which starts this Friday.



TOP FIVE #NSALE BEAUTY BUYS
1. This brand has become a favorite of mine - and this lip kit is a great way to get everything for a lower price.  Also, I want to try this prep product that is supposed to help stop the lipstick feathering.

2. This is my other favorite lipstick brand of mine - and you can get a four lipstick set for a $50 savings.

3. I absolutely love this shampoo & conditioner - this combo set with the texturizing spray is under $40!

4. This shampoo/conditioner just smells like the beach to me - and makes my hair so soft.  It is a great bargain - and highly recommend picking it up now.

5. I have thought about buying this - because everyone seems to swear by how good it works.  It is $40 off right now - I am thinking about it.

More Sale - my picks, what I bought, and deals under $25.

TOP FIVE (NON) NSALE DEALS UNDER $50
1. This maxi dress with playful pom pom ties is on sale for under $30.
