How to Wear a Corduroy Overall Dress for Fall

Happy First of October! I’m so excited fall is here and this past weekend, the weather in Coastal Virginia even cooperated! We got some crisp temperatures and it was divine. I wore this corduroy overall dress over the weekend and got so many questions on my Instagram! This is my second overall piece this season and I’m really digging the trend. This overall dress is retro-inspired but with some modern touches. The mini length is perfect for petite gals, I’m 5’3, and doesn’t require alterations. This particular overall dress dips quite low in the front, so it’s perfect for layering with your favorite top. I love this white stretchy off-the-shoulder top for a simple look. One thing I love about this particular corduroy is how stretchy it is. This dress is quite comfortable to wear and the sage green color is perfect for fall!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Finds :: Balloon Sleeve Sweater & Jeans for $52

Happy Wednesday y’all! On Wednesdays, we wear pink, and this orchid balloon sleeve sweater couldn’t be more perfect. The color is technically called orchid but it’s a very vibrant cool-toned pink, not purple at all. This sweater is $52 and has the most perfect slouchy fit. I love the slightly cropped length, which also makes it easy to throw on. This balloon sleeve sweater oozes this laid-back vibe. You can wear it as a regular v-neck sweater or you can pull one shoulder down. Both ways of stying are appealing to me and depending on the weather, I’ll go for one more than the other. Since this sweater has such a classic feel, it comes in multiple colors. You can get it in red, cream, gold, sky blue or black. I did get the cream color to try but I’m keeping the orchid color.

Fall Florals :: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outfit

Happy Monday Y’all! This weekend was a busy one for me. Lots of blog work with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access going on, seeing friends and catching up on much-needed sleep! Shoutout to my blogger babe Maria Luke of Millenial Fashionista and her husband Parker, okay mainly Paker, for taking these photos of me!  We were blessed with slightly cooler weather, so shooting these fall looks weren’t as bad!

I know so many items are already sold out in the sale. Therefore, in this fall florals look, I’m focusing on items all fully in stock with multiple sizes available. This floral blouse has the prettiest ruffle sleeve details. I love this blouse because it’s perfect for work and wearing casually too. It has short sleeves, so it’s something you can definitely wear now. I love the darker tones, which gives it the fall florals look. When temperatures get chilly, throw on this cardigan for extra warmth. I love this coral color is a more affordable alternative to the ever-popular merino wool cardigan the past two years of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. While the cardigan I’m wearing above is 100 percent cotton, that’s reflective in the $32 price point. However, to make up for it, it’s available in six colors! Definitely snap this one up for summer nights or fall.

IT’S HERE Y’ALL! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 has officially begun! Those who have a Nordstrom credit or debit card can shop now! I know this sale can get very overwhelming, so I’m hoping this, and many more blog posts to come, can serve as a guide so you can get the items you want and save the most money. This is a great time to save on brand new items for fall and winter. My best advice for shopping this sale is if you see something you like, buy it now. Items and sizes will go fast! Plus, thanks to Nordstrom’s easy free shipping and free returns, it’s easy to send back items you don’t want. In years past, I have waited on a couple items and then when I decided I want them, to my disappointment, they were gone! I’m breaking down my picks into categories to make it easy for you to shop. Happy shopping!

Pink Crochet Cropped Top & Hydrangeas for Summer

Happy Monday, y’all! I can’t believe July is already here. I love finding fun tops for summer and this pink crochet cropped top is no exception. As a petite gal, I love the cropped silhouette because it fits me perfectly. The boho style crochet is fun and romantic, which is perfect for summer. The crochet is very well made and I can definitely see the quality in how the crochet was done. Some of the patterns in the crochet are so feminine, I can’t help but swoon. This crochet cropped top has a bit of a flare to it, which is super flattering. Plus, I just think about how I can wear it to lunches and dinners and eat all I want, ha! While this top has straps, I highly recommend wearing a strapless bra since the crochet is see-through in the straps. However, this top is lined through the chest so that’s a plus.
