NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE RECAP

Hey guys! So I just received a ton of my NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE purchases in the mail and wanted to do a quick recap on some of them. We just moved into our new home and found some good light in my bedroom to do some quick selfies. To get the item I have recapped – just click on the linked keywords or scroll to the bottom for the photos and direct links.

Ok the first is just a basic white v-neck tee, which I love because you can layer it with everything! It’s from a brand called LUSH, which I love (and which we also sell at Morning Lavender). The tee is super soft and easy to wear and plus it’s $15. Comes in other colors as well!

I’m also wearing this affordable (only $50) and cute grey mules that I got from the #NSale. You have seen them on my Instagram as well:

The black booties were also from the #NSale and I love them as well. I tried them on with this affordable faux leather jacket from BLANKNYC.

I have other jackets from BLANKNYC before (see my favorite black faux leather jacket here) and was excited for this new one on sale. The jacket is nice quality and style but it just didn’t fit me right. I wish it did though because it’s only $65!

Black booties are a keeper though!

This grey suede jacket actually ended up fitting me better. It’s the same brand and I actually have the tan version of this jacket from last year’s sale.

Ok so on to some tops! I really, really wanted this blush lace up sweater to work and although it’s super cute with the fun sleeves, the length and fullness of the sleeves just doesn’t work for petite gals like me :(. I would recommend it for non-petite gals though!

This is probably my favorite top purchased – you know me and off the shoulder AND stripes!!! The fit on this off the shoulder bow top is great in size XS and I just love the bow detailing!

This is another favorite piece that will be great for fall – a simple and easy to wear blush v-neck pullover sweater.

This v-neck blouse right here is a closet staple and easy to wear year round. It comes in many different colors and is a great find for under $30! I love how versatile it is – any piece you can wear in and out of the office is a must have!

The material on this ruffle sleeve dress wasn’t what I was expecting but the color and fit ended up being great. I actually really love it and can imagine wearing it with fabulous Fall boots. It is sold out in most colors but I have a feeling Nordstrom will be restocking many things since the sale is not completely open to the public yet.

I hope you guys enjoyed my finds! I will update with more items as I get them in the mail :). And I’m hoping new pieces will come on sale too!

SUMMER YELLOW ROMPER

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on right now, I’ve been stocking up on a lot of great Fall pieces on sale. I don’t think I’ll get to wear these pieces for a while as it’s been so incredibly warm in SoCal. Instead, I have been living in rompers almost everyday. If you have been following my blog, you know that I love how comfortable and easy to style rompers are. I found this darling romper with just the perfect pop of color for the summer. And although it’s not a part of the #NSale, it’s already affordable at just under $50! You’ll find more of my favorite affordable summer rompers at the bottom of this post!

SUMMER WEDDING GUEST STYLE

Just wanted to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who has wished me well this past few weeks. I felt a bit overwhelmed most of June from being sick, to our big home move (and remodel) and tackling all of these incredibly exciting (but stressful) projects happening for work. I decided to take a brief break from blogging as I regathered myself emotionally. I feel so much better after a much needed break and extra support from family and friends during this stressful period. I didn’t want to stay away for too long as there are just so many cute summer clothes and amazing sales that are about to happen! So I’m back – recharged, re-energized and ready with a closetful of goodies to show you ;). I will also be back with some more Bosslady Lessons so stay tuned for that as well!

Now that July is here and summer is in full swing, I’m posting some great summer wedding guest outfits. I wore this super cute and super comfy ruffle maxi jumpsuit to a wedding a few months ago and the shorts underneath definitely made getting my groove on a whole lot easier ;). I just love the ruffle detail on this jumpsuit and how nicely the whole thing flows. Keep in mind the top part is sheer so make sure you get one of these backless sticky bras (one of my undergarment must haves).

DENIM ON THE GO

Lately, life has been extremely hectic so I love having a simple, go-to denim look that I can just throw on and be ready for work and whatever comes my way. We carry these adorable scallop tops at Morning Lavender that come in a variety of colors. The top is so simple yet versatile and goes great with jeans or tucked in a skirt or dress pants. I’ve also been obsessed with layering gold necklaces as of late and this choker-long necklace combo from Mejuri is perfect.

STRIPES & RUFFLES

To be honest, my husband kind of laughed at me when he saw me in this dress.  He gave me that “are you serious?” face and I joked with him and said “you just don’t understand fashion”.  Yes the sleeves are kind of ridiculous but I love them and ruffles are super popular right now.  And I finally found the perfect size off the shoulder ruffle dress that isn’t too long on me!  If I had more time, I’d probably alter the sleeves an inch or two but honestly I couldn’t get enough of this fun dress!  It might get a laugh from the hubs, but it definitely makes a statement!

COLD SHOULDER MAXI DRESS

Maxi dress season is pretty much year round for me.  Although I’m super petite, I love wearing maxi dresses and don’t even mind having to get them altered. Worn right, I feel as if maxi dresses can make you appear taller by wearing one color or pattern from head-to-toe.  Luckily I found this darling cold shoulder floral maxi dress that didn’t require any alterations. ASOS offers a great line for petites and I often find cute and affordable trendy pieces from them. I didn’t see the dress in a regular length but it does come in a tall length for you gals that don’t have a height disadvantage ;).
