Random roundup: Anniversary sale edition

Happy Anniversary Sale day!!! I've been talking about the sale for what feels like forever now, I'm happy that it's finally open to the mass public as of today so that we can all start talking about this together! It would make my day if you shared what you bought with me! In the meantime, since I've been highlighting my Nordstrom Anniversary sale purchases all week, I figured I would keep the theme going and share my random roundup outfits that include some of these same pieces. This just gives you more styling ideas, right? (hopefully) I clearly haven't wasted time wearing everything I've bought - they're that good.

Necklace: Stella and Dot | Bag: Longchamp | Top: BP (other colors available here) | Bracelets: H&M (gifted) | Bottoms: Express | Flats: Halogen

I changed into this on Thursday after my day of shopping last week for a lash appointment. it tends to get cold in the room, so this thin long sleeved tee and jeans were a good decision. And I just can't help but get happy staring down at my feet. These flats have stolen my heart a bit.

Vest: JCrew Factory | Necklace: Tasha | Top: ExpressJeans: Current/ElliottFlats: Halogen

These jeans are another favorite right now. I love that they're skinny jeans but not super tight on my calves, so I'm not constantly feeling like I have to pull them down at the ankle to keep them from gathering at my knee. And, since they're cropped on a regular heighten person, they fit me like normal length jeans, which means no hemming! Woo! I haven't bought a pair of designer denim in quite a long time, so I welcomed these into my collection!

Bag: Rebecca MinkoffTop: JCrewNecklace: Kate Spade | Jeans: Express (similar) | Flats: Louise et Cie

I have not been able to put this bag down since I've gotten it. It's amazing, and the perfect carry-all size. And these flats! I felt kind of retro-chic in this outfit with the thicker cuff and classic shaped flats!

Necklaces: The Foundrie layered over Stella and DotTop: Bobeau | Bracelet: NadriJeans: Current/Elliott | Heels: Manolo Blahnik

I'm back in the jeans again because I wanted to wear them with heels this round. I certainly thing that the leg gets just a little bit longer when you're wearing heels. And I actually went with a full tuck with my shirt! Why, you ask? Because these jeans made my booty look cute and it would be a disservice to hide it. Yep, I just said that. I love these jeans, y'all.

And last but not least is my new favorite tee shirt. No, I may not end up buying it in EVERY color like I did with my infamous Express knot tees, but they're still pretty great, so I did order two more colors - a grey and also orange and white stripe

Clockwise from top left: Trish McEvoy 'Naturally Gorgeous' Power of Makeup Planner Sale: $168 Retail value: $546 | Nike 'Internationalist' Sneaker Sale: $62.90 After sale: $85 | Tasha beaded multi-cord bracelet Sale: $17.90 After sale: $28 | Hanky Panky Low Rise thong Sale: $14.90 or 4 for $54 After sale: $20 each

Every year, I always end up doing a follow up online order after the dust has settled from my in store purchases. These are the items I ended up ordering. The makeup planner was actually a pre-order. I was stopped by a makeup consultant who started trying some Trish products on me. She convinced me I needed this set, and when she told me the retail value, I mean, how could I say no? I've been using it all week, and I'm a bit obsessed! It's pretty comparable to an Urban Decay Naked set - it reminds me of Naked on the Run, actually, though there are a few more pieces in this. And how clever is the packaging? I love it.

Jenna convinced me I needed the Nikes, and for $63, that's quite a great deal. Rachelle and I were just having a conversation about Hanky Panky - *I* was trying to do the convincing this time though - convincing her she needed to try them since they are all I could wear for 6+ years now! I always stock up when they're on sale!

OK, well, I have thoroughly taught you anything and everything I know about this sale. It's now time for you birds to fly. Fly away my sweet birds! You can do this! Shop your brains out, save some money, and come back here and tell me what you got!



  1. those nikes are so cute and I am so mad I didn't get the jcrew factory vest. I adore it :/


  2. I mean...I go MIA for a couple of weeks and I come back and you're wearing FLATS?!? In two outfits?! I don't even know you anymore!! **ugly cry** I guess I have some catching up to do!! I have the Internationalist Sneakers in black and they are great! Looooove that outfit with your new favorite tee and love this outfit/shopping recap in general!
