Style: ruffle wrap skirts starting at $8!

Style: ruffle wrap skirts | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

A fun twist on the traditional skirt for the spring and summer season is the wrap skirt paired with a ruffle detail. Highlight the skirt details by keeping the top detail-free (think lightweight tank or camisole, or a solid color tee). Alternatively, make an eye-catching look by pairing the skirt with an equally detailed top. The options are endless and will always yield something amazing. I’ve rounded some of my favorites below!

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:

Style: waist cutout | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

I’ve spotted quite a few dresses and rompers that are sporting the waist cutout trend this spring and summer. It’s all about giving that little hint of skin but still keeping it classy. It can make an otherwise cookie cutter look a little bit more fun, feminine, and sexy. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite cutouts below – let me know which one is your favorite!

Waist cutout maxi dress

Lavender waist cutout dress

Side cutout jumpsuit overall

Blue side cutout dress

Midi skirts can be intimidating to style due to their fullness and length. That’s what I used to think but it was before I played around with some key things that have now changed my mind. Whether you’re 4’10” or 5’10”, it’s all about balance. A few things I always try to adhere to are:
(1) pair the skirt with a neutral or a color that’s found on the skirt
(2) don’t let the skirt swallow you – define the waist by tucking in your top or pairing it with a crop top
(3) if the skirt is patterned, choose a neutral shoe to pair it with as to not compete
I love this look for work – it’s a good way to wear a more playful skirt but still look professional.
