The soft pant and Nordstrom Anniversary Sale




Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Top: Like Mynded (option, option)  | Bottoms: Express (option, option)  | Sandals: Alex Marie (option, option)

Ever since I first wore these pants here, I've been really looking forward to wearing them again. I see so many great ways these are styled, but when it comes down to me styling them myself, it always seems like a difficult task. This post I stumbled across on Pinterest had great inspiration. This was my favorite:


This was the original look I was going for when styling my outfit today, but nothing I had looked as good as Olivia's outfit. I finally decided to try this floral muscle tee, which is no stranger to my blog. It ended up being the perfect balance of sporty and girly, which is just what I wanted.

Yes, I posted this on Instagram, and yes, Nordstrom "liked" it.

OK, now let's get to the more important part, shall we? How excited are you guys for, not just any, but THE anniversary sale? I feel like it's the prom of the shopping season. I had been stalking my mail all last week when I started hearing about people getting their catalog. I literally let out an audible squeal when mine finally arrived.

I've been saving up my Nordstrom notes ALL YEAR, so I'm extra excited to see what kind of sales I can score. It's so bitter sweet this year though because my Nordstrom SA relocated out of state! We're trying to see how we can make it work so we're able to shop together this year, but in the meantime, I've went ahead and started making my list. I literally took pics of my wish list while I was looking at the catalog on the plane last weekend!

Marc Jacobs colorblock tote: $352.90, After sale $528
Pedro Garcia shoes: $349.90, After sale $525
Vince Camuto Textured Knit Midi Dress $98.90, After sale $148

Halogen floral print sweater: $57.90, After sale $88
Sam Edelman shoes: $99.90, After sale $159.95
Vince Camuto soft two-tone bag: $165.90, After sale $248

Mystery shoes! They're not described anywhere in the catalog, so I'm not even sure if they're actually part of the sale, but they're worn in several outfits and I loooove them, probably more than any single thing on my list!

July 10th can't get here soon enough! What is on everyone else's lists? Please share!!


SHOP THE LOOK:

  1. I have the dolce vita fray sandals on watch I really hope they are part of the sale and those sam edelman's you posted might go home with me as well. Love these pants they are so comfy, I have them in black. If only they would had some of the Milly items on sale that would be great, Milly has the best prints.

  4. When I look at the pieces of Olivia's outfit, I'm baffled at how she manages to look NOT frumpy in that outfit? I think life is unfair. Love that you are strategizing for the Nordstrom sale - those gray Sam Edelman heels look amazing!

  13. I think I have shopped maybe twice at Nordstrom (online) and wasn't very satisfied, I might have to give it a 2 chance.

    1. *gasp* Well I can tell you that in person is way better. They just have amazing customer service from my experience! And just so you know- their return policy is unbeatable. I had a friend that worked there that said they basically took anything back. Even if it was 2 years later and the customer is complaining that their item fell apart. Def worth another try!
