Dressed up casual // Style Me Wednesday

link-up, outfits comment

Rediscovering old items in your closet is the best feeling sometimes. I found this quilted sweater I bought a few years ago and now recall why I bought it – the quality is great and the quilt adds a lot of visual interest. Sadly, it’s no longer available but I did find this one that also has a side zip feature. Perfect athletisure look!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Grey quilted sweater – Forever 21 (similar here & here)

Boyfriend jeans – GAP (similar here & here)

Leopard flats – BP (similar here & here)

Happy Thanksgiving eve, friends! Hoping you all have plans to spend time with friends and family and also, stuff yourself silly!

I have a few family gatherings that I’ll be attending and what better way to stay comfortable and warm than in this beautiful sweater? I love the asymmetrical hem, multi-directional ribbing, and the bold gold buttons (design also comes in a poncho and dress). There’s something unique about the combination of navy and gold which probably is why I love this sweater so much. I paired it with white jeans to offset the navy and black colors but it would also work if paired with a white button down or tee underneath (perhaps, also an asymmetrical one that cuts in the opposing direction).

P.S. Don’t forget to come back during the Thanksgiving holiday stretch – I’ll be posting sales and promo codes for you to take advantage of!

P.P.S Today’s the last day for the $270 Nordstrom giveaway – have you entered?


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy asymmetrical sweater with gold button hardware – Rag & Bone
{choose to ship to USA, pay in GBP – save ~$75!} (similar style here & here)

White straight leg jeans – J.Crew (similar style here & here)

Nordstrom anniversary sale

deals comment

2015_nordstrom_anniversary_sale
It’s that time of year again – the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! What is this, you ask? It’s when all the brand new Fall inventory comes to the store. All of the new items are marked down (I’ve seen as much as 50-60% off!) during the sale and then, go back to their original prices. So, what are the dates to keep in mind?

July 14 to July 21 – get early access if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder

July 22 to August 7 – Open to everyone

August 8 – Prices go back to their original

I didn’t quite understand the hoopla around this sale until a few years ago. But, some of the markdowns on the new inventory are phenomenal. You’ll want to shop during the early access sale. If you don’t already have a Nordstrom card, I would highly encourage you to apply for a debit card (tied to an existing debit card you have – no credit check run), or a Nordstrom credit card. With either option, you can shop the sale early before certain things run out. And, on top of that, you earn 2 points per dollar spent – when you accrue 2,000 points, you get rewarded with a $20 gift certificate.

So, what are some of the good finds you ask? This is always an opportunity for me to score great deals on designer items I might not otherwise purchase during the rest of the year. I always head to the purse section as I find this is an investment that’s worthwhile for me. I’ve already ordered this versatile bag (comes in 4 colors: black, baby blue, pearl, and beige) – great for work bag or weekend getaway. Also, I’m keeping an eye on this gorgeous leather bucket bag. It is currently marked down to $546 (down from its $1095 price tag). Check out some other gorgeous and amazing purse finds:
