Last Days of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale :: What to Buy

I can’t believe it’s August 1! This year is truly flying by and I feel like before I know it, it’ll be time for the holidays! There are six days left for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so if you didn’t get a chance to snag some of the new items for fall and winter, now is the time! It may feel like a lot of great items are sold out, but that’s not true. I think there are still many great pieces, especially basics including jeans, dresses and more still in stock! Not to mention, as people return items, they will pop back in stock. Therefore, if you want something, bookmark that page and check back before the sale ends! You might be able snatch it up! Remember, thanks to Nordstrom’s free shipping and returns, you can always bring or send something back if you don’t like it.  Now, let’s get to the picks!

Spring Must-Have :: Marigold Ruffle Dress & Trench Coat

I’m a big fan of a true sunny yellow shade but this marigold ruffle dress is making me think twice. This is such a flattering color on a variety of skin tones. If you are looking to branch into yellow but are unsure of where to start, I recommend this. The ruffle detailing gives this dress a fun, feminine touch. Also, this fabric feels like a dream on. It’s a slinky weave that feels cool on the skin and doesn’t tug. I’m wearing size P in this ruffle dress and it fits quite well. There is a little bit of extra room in the bust, but it doesn’t bother me too much. The cap sleeves do have a slit in them. However, this is definitely still a very work-appropriate dress. Swap out these block heels for something a little sexier to make this a fun girls night out or date night dress. This marigold number is quite versatile.

Shades of Pink :: The Versatile Surplice Jumpsuit

 I love a good jumpsuit. They can be such versatile pieces when you find the right one. Wear to work, wear to events, wear on the weekend or even date night. This mauve surplice jumpsuit is one of those jumpsuits. You’re sure to turn heads when you walk into a room wearing this. The silky fabric skims over the body but isn’t too shiny as you can tell in my photos here. I love the belt, which really lets you cinch in your waist to add extra shape. While this surplice jumpsuit has a halter neckline, you can make this work appropriate with a blazer or cardigan. I’m wearing this jumpsuit with suede block heels but a sharp pair of pumps will take this babe into any executive room. Plus, the neckline isn’t too low so you won’t have to worry about anything popping out by accident.

Holiday Casual :: Boucle Wool Coat & Flannel Pajama Top

I’m so sad Coastal Virginia didn’t get enough snow to stick over the weekend! I’m crossing my fingers we get a real snow day before Christmas here. I love snow and being in a winter wonderland. Speaking of winter, I add a new pair, or a few, of holiday pajamas to my collection each year. With a super demanding job during the week, on weekends, I love to lounge when it’s gray or gross outside. These flannel pajamas are major sale right now and you can see the full look on my Instagram. The flannel pajama top is so comfy, I’m styling it for “the real world.” The pajama trend really took off earlier this year so I’m continuing it into winter. I believe if you style the top right, whether it’s with tying the bottom or pairing it with the right bottoms, you can get a super chic look…
