Springy Aztec






Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Necklace: Stella and Dot (option) | Top: Express | Bracelet: Forever 21 (option)  | Skirt: Express (option, option)  | Bag: Michael Kors (budget option) | Sandals: DV Dolce Vita (now 33% off!)

If you recall, I winterized this skirt back in this post here. Bet you didn't know a sequin skirt could be so versatile, huh! I told you guys I'd be shopping my own closet this week! I loved the idea of pairing my new  teal sandals (purchased here prior to my self-imposed shopping ban) with this aztec skirt. The teal and the cognac definitely give the look a more laid back, almost hand crafted feel to it, if that makes sense. I never thought I could wear sequins during the day, but now I'm at the point in life where I can't think of an occasion sequins would NOT be appropriate…

What's even sweeter about this outfit is last night I got a notification on my Slice app that the sandals dropped in price:


When I hit the "Request Price Adjustment" button at the bottom, it auto-fills an email to Nordstrom with my order details and such, requesting a price adjustment. Pretty, nifty, huh? So here I am on a self-imposed shopping ban, and just like that I saved $22.76 not even doing a thing! The app is free - you can download it here. And no, I'm not getting compensated at all for this shout out to them, I just love online shopping, and the app keeps me organized! And to be quite honest, I'm not really good at tracking price adjustments, so this is just a win/win!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Linking up for: #AllAboutYouStyle Sessions, Erin and Laura for Trend Spin Linkup, and Stylish Tuesday.

  1. I need to sign up for the slice app TODAY. I've had the same thing happen (usually Nordstrom) where things go on sale shortly after my purchase. So frustrating. And great re-mixing of both of these pieces from your wardrobe!

    1. Yes I hope you sign up for it! It's great that it consolidates all my online purchases- from multiple email addresses also! It's just scary when you see your grand total of spending for a year...

  6. HI from the linkup. I love this whole look. The white crisp shirt is a great staple, love the print of the skirt, and the pop of blue in your shoes. Love!

  7. Lovely colors Carlyee and I love seeing how you used items from your closet. Where did you get your MK bag?

    1. Thank you so much!

      I got the bag last year at a MK outlet. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere online which is sad because it's so buttery soft. Such a great bag!

      Thanks again! I appreciate the comment!

  8. You keep posting things that I now need to buy! I've had a sequin skirt on my list for a while. You're right that sequins are so versatile and can be worn day and night. I love the white and turquoise with this. So summery.

    1. Yes, I think sequins have come a long way from simply glitzy night time wear! Hope you find your perfect skirt!!

  9. There's my favorite accessory of yours again (that Stella & Dot necklace)! Love how it pops beneath the white shirt and ties with the turquoise sandals to the Aztec pattern.
    (If you EVER tire of that necklace, ping me first to purchase please. ;-)I couldn't afford it when it was still available)

  12. First of all you look gorgeous. That is the one mini skirt from Express that got away from me. Should have bought it. Your new sandals and that necklace are gorgeous and what a cool app about the price adjustment. Good luck with the shopping ban.

    Come see my newest sandals. Nothing as fancy as yours but I love them. =)

  15. Ok, say what about the app?? It automatically fills out a form and sends it to Nordstrom??? I'm downloading it today...thanks for the public service announcement!! :) Great example of remixing....I would never have known that was a winter skirt...it looks very cute and I love the teal shoes! Eek!

    1. Yep! It's just one of many features! The main thing is that it consolidates all my online purchases, including tracking info and such. Tells me when things are delivered. Then also notifies you of price drops like this! It's great! If you like tracking your spending, it makes pie charts for you too so you can see where your money goes! Which admittedly is scary! :)

  16. That skirt looks awesome on you and the coordinating necklace and flats are perfect!

    1. Thanks, lady! The necklace was a splurge for me but I've gotten so much use out of it, it's definitely been worth it! Loved how it paired with this skirt!

  17. Oh my goodness! I love this so much! I just bought a similar one from J. Crew Factory. No sequins, but similar shape. Love the white shirt and sandals. Headed to look at your winter one too. Missed the info on your shopping ban. Proud of you! It's so hard to maintain the right balance. Your closet looks great. :)
