Floral Dress Outfit for Late Summer

fall outfit idea

1. Denim Jacket (Very Similar Option) // 2. Pendant Necklace (Similar option)
3. Dress (Similar Option) // 4. Lipstick // 5. Boots // 6. Bag

Does anyone else think this summer has had some of the oddest weather?  It has been extremely hot - or unseasonable cool where I live.  It rained all June - and now we have not had a decent rain in almost a month!  And, this week the weather has gotten cool - so much that it almost feels like fall is starting.  And, I think our flowers are starting to think it's fall soon, too, because they are starting to die.

In preparation of fall, I think this dress that is 40% off would be a perfect late summer - early fall outfit.  I could also see adding a turtleneck under the dress in the fall.

My Top Five #NSALE Hits + Misses

Happy Friday!

 I apologize - you are probably so tired of hearing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale by now - and there is still a week left.  I just wanted to share my top 5 hits and misses from the sale, which I hope you find helpful.

This is the softest tee. I bought it last year - and I got another one this year.  It is a great layering piece - plus, it looks a little more dressy than just a plain tee. 

I have wanted a new pair of sunglasses - and I found these that are almost $100 off and so comfy and stylish!

This cardigan is going to be a perfect fall sweater!  I love the color - and it’s a great price.

I spotted these boots in the preview catalog and I love them!  One recommendation - they run a 1/2 size small.

 I have a feeling these might be my new favorite jeans this fall.  They are under $50 - and I love the fit!

I really wanted to love these boots.  The fit was just not comfortable.

I will agree with the other reviewers - the fit of this cardigan was big and just not what I was expecting.  

I saw this jacket in the preview catalog and I knew I wanted to get it.  I was disappointed with the fit when I got it - not as cute as I thought it would be.

I really wanted to love this sweater.  It was so warm and cozy - but I just did not love it!

This is one of my favorite (if not favorite) brand of jeans - but the fit of these jeans were off for me - and I did not like the distressing around the waist.

This new arrival hooded poncho is 40% off.

This new cardigan - in a staple pale grey heather and 40% off.

This cardigan is on sale for $25.

This red denim jacket is on sale - and a great statement piece.

I love the color of this blazer.

I cannot believe this wrap tank is on sale for $10 - and comes in different colors.

This camo tee is on sale for only $10.

This pink blazer is on sale for $30.

Anyone else ready for fall?  I really enjoy summer (and I feel like summer just started) but there is something so exciting about fall - the leaves, crisp air, sweaters, boots, and football games. The other day they were replaying a college football game - and it made me so happy - and ready for college football days!

Today, I am rounding up some great summer sales - and some new fall trends.  A lot of the summer items - are great transitional fall pieces - like the moto jackets and sweaters.

This cardigan is a great wardrobe staple for 50% off.

Happy Friday!  Happy "public" Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Day!

#NSALE Long Cardigan + Snake Pumps Outfit

nsale items most popular

1. Long Cardigan // 2. Necklace // 3. V-Neck Tee // 4. Bag
5. Jeans // 6. Snake Print Pumps // 7. Lipstick (Trio Set)

Are you ever out of words to share?  I am at a loss of words.  I can't think of something informative or clever or helpful to share...

I could mention that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public tomorrow - but I am guessing that everyone knows that - and for those that have been waiting for the public sale - I hope a lot of popular items - like this striped sweater and this really cozy shearling jacket for only $60 - that sold out almost instantly are back in stock!

(And, if I am being totally honest - somehow I got mixed up on my days - and put this whole #NSALE look together for today - thinking the sale went public today!)

 I will say though that snake pumps are probably my second favorite shoe after my leopard pumps.  I love how chic and trendy snake print is and how well it pairs with something as simple as a black tee and cardigan. It just adds that finishing touch to a look.

Summer Ruffle Dress + Denim Jacket

summer outfit

1. Denim Jacket // 2. Ruffle Wrap Dress (Almost identical option on sale) // 3. Necklace

It's funny - I am totally a jeans type of person.  I just feel the most comfortable wearing them.  But, every once and awhile I gravitate towards a dress that I like. This floral dress was one of those dresses.  I spotted it - and thought it was so fun that I wanted to style it.  I love the way it turned out. Plus, that dress is a great deal. It is 40% off and only $60 (and not part of the NSALE).

My Favorite Yellow Cardigan Outfit

Isn't it funny how the picture we plan to not use becomes the picture we like the best?

My mom snapped this picture as we were packing up.  I had tied my cardigan around my waist, taken off my mules, and put my my flat sandals back on - and we were headed back to the car.

I love this "behind the scenes" look - because it is just me - comfy in my jeans and flip flops!
