Mix List: My Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Guys, one of the best sales all year is upon us– the Nordstrom  Anniversary Sale, giving us the opportunity to get a head start on our fall wardrobes (there are also plenty of wearable-now, summer-ish items to shop as well!) for a lot less– prices go up when the sale ends, and some of the discounts are pretty awesome.  I’ve rounded up my fave picks, a few of which are already ordered and on their way (ahem, gold boots!!!)…
Classics-wise, now is a great time to get the Topshop genuine leather jacket, a wardrobe MUST– if you’ve always done a cheaper faux version, this sale is a great way to grab a real leather moto at a great price.  The Nixon gold watch, Kate Spade gold cuff and faux leather leggings and mini skirt are also wardrobe staples for me– I constantly wear items like these, so yearly upgrades are necessary! The floral midi dress just screams fall to me– I’ll wear it early with laceup sandals now, and with booties come fall.  The denim jumper dress can be worn now with an off the shoulder top underneath, and in the cooler months with a slim turtleneck and tights.  White sneaks are still going strong year round– I need new ones for summer, and these Stan Smiths will take me right into fall, anchoring all my almost-too-feminine looks with a boyish flair. The 3.1 Phillip Lim bag–!!– Can you believe this awesome designer classic is under $300 on sale!? Need. Bombers are still gonna be important this fall, and an olive one like the one I’ve picked below will go with everything you own.  Every girl needs at least one oversized plaid shirt in her rotation, and in my opinion, Madewell does them best–and now that Nordstrom sells Madewell, really, what are you waiting for? The Topshop lightning bolt sweater is just super fun and makes me smile, and the Adidas tank is perf for layering under a blazer come fall, or under overalls now during the warmer months.  Lastly, I chose for you guys two awesome beauty buys– a MAC brush set which includes all the basics, and a Bobbi Brown bronze eye pallet, flattering on all skin tones. So, get ready, set, shop! Enjoy my picks; use the links below to buy!

Wishlist: My Rose Gold Gift Guide

Obviously, I LOVE and adore fresh flowers, especially pink or white roses– but let’s face it, they only last a week or so.  ROSE GOLD, on the other hand, is one type of rose that will never die! You guys are familiar with my penchant for all things with the midas touch by now, so I figured I’d put together a gift guide/wishlist with a sweet little twist on my favorite metallic- just in time for Valentine’s Day.  Hint, hint…any of the ROSY items below would make a perfect accomplice to a bunch of fresh (albeit fleeting) roses on the 14th ❤

Look: Moto Jacket + Moody Dress + Booties

One of my fave modern classic pairings for Fall is a dark, moody, sometimes floral dress paired with a black leather moto jacket and pointed toe booties.  It’s really the only time of year we can get away with comfortably pairing these pieces– and it is def one of my go-to looks.  I’m pretty sure all of you guys have some version of each of these pieces already in your closet–it’s just a matter of pairing them all together.  For instance, I’ve worn this dress maaannyyyy times before; its a staple in my wardrobe– its the Urban Outfitters “witchy t-shirt dress”, and it comes in at least 5 different colors and patterns, this dark moody floral being my fave for fall.  I topped this look off with a chunky, silver, chain-mail style necklace from Baublebar(sold out, similar here), pointed toe grey booties from Tibi, and a few of my everyday gold bangles (love mixing metals!)


Booties: Tibi (sold out, similar options linked below!) Petite Shopping Tote: Chanel

I’ve scouted a few similar options as far as moody fall dresses, the perfect black moto jacket (mine worn above is Mango from a few seasons ago), and pointed toe booties at varying price points!

Try out this look this week, while we can still bare our legs!
