Slouchy boots starting at $59

style trend comment

Move over leg hugging boots – slouchy boots are here. Earlier in the year, they were on all the major runways. These boots are flexible by design and go well with skinny pant silhouettes. But, that’s not all – consider pairing them with a form fitting sweater dress to contrast the proportions. I’ve rounded up boots of all heights and colors with prices starting at $59 and all are under $200!


SHOP THE LOOK:

ONE {3 colors}

TWO {vegan leather; only $80}

THREE {can fold down back part of slouch}

FOUR {3 colors}

FIVE {4 colors}

SIX {50% off & 2 colors}

SEVEN {5 colors}

EIGHT {under $100 & 2 colors}

It gives off a regal look but also adds a bit of masculinity. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces that you can pair with just about everything to give off a polished look.

Grey double breasted military coat {comes in 3 colors, 15% off with code WKND}

If you’re anything like me, you usually “run cold” and are always bundling up. Shearling is a good option for keeping nice and warm, and also, fashionable! It seems since the introduction of Uggs, shearling has been here to stay and is being incorporated into almost every piece of clothing, accessory, or shoe that you can imagine. I’ve rounded up some fun finds that you can add to your winter wardrobe and keep toasty!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Shearling lined vest {50% off!}

Shearling fur purse with tassels {2 colors available}

Navy shearling collar top coat {33% off}

Grey shearling sweatshirt {comes in leopard print, too}

Blush pink shearling lined moto jacket

Shearling lined lace up bootie {50% off}

Oscar Wilde once said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Ever since Chanel introduced their ever popular colorblock shoe, it’s been seen on practically every celebrity, fashion editor, and fashion influencer. Multiple brands have come out with their own inspired version of the colorblock neutral shoe. The neutral shoe is a great addition to your collection since it will pair well with just about any outfit you can come up with. I’ve rounded up shoes for every price point – let me know your favorite!

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:
