Style: Gucci loafer mule slide & other budget friendly options

Style: Gucci horsebit loafer mule slide and other budget friendly options | see it all on

Add a little bit of inspiration from menswear with the loafer slide to your shoe rotation this season. Since Gucci introduced their version, it’s been quite the “it” shoe. The mule flat is perfect for all day wear since it’s not a heel. More importantly, it pairs with just about anything: skirts, jeans, tailored pants. I’ve rounded up some great finds for all price points below:

Edit: I found this pair that is a deadringer and the perfect budget friendly dupe for the Gucci loafer (only $22!)

Style: bow platforms

Style: bow platform flats | see all the picks at

What better way to dress up a simple slip on platform flat than adding bows on your toes? I love the simplicity of the knotted bow on the shoes since the bow itself adds so much more dimension to an otherwise ordinary looking shoe. It’s the perfect shoe for an off duty look. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below:

One {25% off with code GOBIG17}

Two {40% off}

Three {25% off with code GOBIG17}

Four {2 colors}

Five {3 colors}

Six {25% off with code GOBIG17}

Style: fall essentials under $75!

Fall essentials under $75 | see all the picks at

With the recent transition into the fall season, I always take inventory of my closet to see what essentials I may be missing or what new trends I can try out. I’ve rounded up some stylish options (all under $75!) that will serve as both closet essentials and stylish fall trends.

Trench coat: You can never go wrong with a trench coat – I consider it a closet staple. This particular one is perfect for wearing unbuttoned or easy to cinch with the drawstring. And you can’t go wrong when it’s under $75 (don’t forget extra 10% off when you sign up for their newsletter)

Plaid scarf: This comes in 2 colors – this pictured one that’s a more bright color combination or a more muted but equally pretty red and blue color combination (code MORE25 for $10 off $25). Either way, you can’t go wrong – the plaid style will never go out of style. Wear it as additional layer over your tee or sweater or tuck it underneath your trench coat for a pop of color!.

Side slit turtleneck: This is a fun twist on the classic turtleneck – a longer length and a fun side slit detail. Now, how can you resist either the olive green or burgundy colors? Update: it also comes in black, grey, and coral/rust color

Open front cardigan: I live in these! They’re cozy (most important!) and easily paired with just about anything (jeans, slacks, skirts, dress, etc). I love this particular one since it has pockets and I can easily slip my essentials in without requiring a wallet or clutch.

Hi-low raw hem jeans: Raw hem jeans have been all the rage. They’re made even better with the unexpected hi-low cut and gives it a bit of an edge. This pair is a great option for under $50 (code GOSHOP35 for extra 15% off)!

Velvet booties: Booties are a closet essential for the fall. Try these black velvet booties with your favorite pair of skinny jeans tucked in or pair it with a dress. The fabric adds a unique dimension to another otherwise black pair of booties.

Velvet is a fabric that has a long history and is often associated with aristocracy. But, this season it’ll be one of the major fabrics on display and shoes will be a place you’ll see lots of it! Style these velvet shoes for either a casual or dressed look – you won’t go wrong! I’ve rounded up some choices for any occasion and the best part is they’re all under $65!

Nordstrom anniversary sale

deals comment

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:
