OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

The Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee Boots are definitely a splurge but in my opinion, definitely worth it. I have short legs and these boots hold up well and even elongate my legs a bit. I have tried plenty of other over the knee boots and they often sag and I find myself struggling to keep them up. The boots are also relatively comfy even with the 4″ heel but I haven’t worn them for a full day of walking yet. I’m always amazed by the ladies who wear these babies on those winter vacations in the snow or walking around all day in NYC! Another plus to these boots is that they come in so many gorgeous colors at Nordstrom. I’m going to have to convince the hubs to let me get them in another color. Maybe a Christmas gift if you are reading this babe hint, hint ;).

I paired the boots with this easy-to-wear v-neck tunic. For chillier temps, I’d also wear it with this burgundy sweater dress or this cute sweater dress with pockets. Layer a plaid scarf or cropped jacket over the look and you are ready to go!

LEOPARD BOOTIES

I have a soft spot for leopard and I LOVE that it’s trending this season! I wear my casual loafers often and I was so excited when I found these gorgeous leopard booties on Nordstrom.com. They have the cutest kitten heels and are not only stylish but super comfy. You can wear these booties with high-waisted jeans and jazz up the whole look without doing too much. In this post, I paired the booties with this easy-to-wear satin wrap dress in my favorite color of the season again – burgundy. I thought the mix of satin and leopard would be a little unexpected and fun. Did I mention – I’m seriously obsessed with these booties?!

BURGUNDY LACE DRESS

I love wearing warmer tones in the Fall and one of my favorite colors to wear right now is burgundy. This gorgeous burgundy and UNDER $100 lace midi dress from Nordstrom is perfect for a Fall wedding or a holiday party. I love how the underlay is just short enough and the lace extends to a true midi length. The dress comes in other beautiful colors too and the size XS fits true to size for me.

It’s quite hot here in SoCal right now but for chilly nights, I’d throw a faux fur caplet or fitted leather jacket to complete the look. I can’t wait til the temperature drops here in SoCal so we can really enjoy Fall fashion!

POLKA DOTS & SOCK BOOTIES

Fall is in full swing and temperatures are even starting to drop slightly here in SoCal. Two of my favorite Fall trends happening right now are polka dots and sock booties. My husband (aka photographer) actually told me “are you wearing socks with your shoes?” and I laughed and replied “they are actually sock booties!” I guess I should be happy he noticed how they are suppose to look? I found this pair from Jeffrey Campbell surprisingly comfortable thanks to the neoprene material. I admit I tried to rock the white leather booties that are super trendy right now but they just weren’t very comfortable to me, especially compared to the black neoprene ones. And I’m really scared of getting the white ones dirty lol. Anyway, I’m so happy Nordstrom has so many options I can try and in so many different price points. And I’m even happier they offer trend dresses like this polka dot dress in size XS for petite gals like me :).

FALL TRANSITIONAL ITEMS

It’s hard to believe mid August is already here! With Fall right around the corner, I’m looking to add versatile Fall transitional pieces to my closet. Perfect Fall transitional items are easy-to-wear pieces that can also be layered to create looks suitable for the Fall climate. I love adding Fall colors to my wardrobe in hues of olive, grey and brown. When looking for essential closet pieces, I always go to Nordstrom for their wide selection of trendy and classic everyday pieces. One of my favorite finds from their site was this olive jacket in the perfect shade for Fall. The jacket is not too heavy so I actually see it as an amazing year-round piece for my closet. Plus it comes in size XXS! Another great for Fall are the grey mules I purchased from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. The mules are no longer on sale but they are still at a great price and they are as comfy as they are cute! I’m always finding the cutest shoes for the season from Nordstrom!

WHITE JUMPSUIT

One of my favorite #ootd to wear for the summer is an all white look. An all white look can be incredibly fresh and chic. I also find wearing the same color head-to-toe is flattering and elongating. So when I discovered this fun and frilly white jumpsuit, I knew I just had to have it! When my husband saw me in it, he immediately said “well don’t you just look like a boss lady!” lol. This modern twist on the power suit is also very versatile as you can wear this look during the day or the evening. If you don’t own a white jumpsuit, I suggest you find one and put one on – it’s incredibly empowering!

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!

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!
