Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks 2017

Hello friends & happy Saturday! It’s that time of year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! If you are a Nordstrom Card Holder, definitely start shopping now before it opens up to the public (things tend to go out of stock!). Over the years, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always been an early back-to-school shopping outing for my family. It’s such a great time to stock up on pieces for the upcoming season- at an awesome price! Even though I am not going back to school this fall (which is the strangest thing to say out loud), I am especially excited about the sale this year. San Francisco is pretty chilly, and our summer feels like fall most of the time. Most sales tend to be end-of-season, but it’s nice that Nordstrom does their big one right before the season starts. The selection this year is stellar, and I have already ordered a few of the pieces from the sale!

Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite picks from this year’s sale:one. satin ruffle hem romper / two. embroidered crossbody bag  / three. suede mules / four. high neck midi dress / five. spot strappy jumpsuitsuit / six. military jacket / seven. ruffle bell sleeve blouse (ordered this in the black and the blue) / eight. ripped denim jacket / nine. tie front blouse / ten. embroidered chambray shirt / eleven. bell sleeve blouse / twelve. stripe bell sleeve top / thirteen. over the knee boots (just ordered this exact pair!)

The big trends this year definitely seem to be bell sleeves/ruffle sleeves, anything and everything light pink, and booties. I ordered this long sleeve blouse in two colors (which will be perfect for work!) and these amazing, suede over the knee boots. I am so incredibly excited to get them in the mail very soon, and I know will get tons of use out of them all year! Tomorrow I am heading to the Nordstrom store in Palo Alto when my mom gets in town, and I can’t wait to browse the selection in person. This is definitely the time to stock up on basic essentials that you will wear and love all fall!

Let me know what you’ve been eyeing from this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Pink Maxi Skirt

TOP white crop top (size small) | SKIRT pink wrap maxi skirt (size xs // under $50!) | NECKLACE shell choker (linked similar) | SUNGLASSES cat eye sunnies (under $15!) | SHOES nude heels | BAG straw clutch

 Hello friends & happy Friday! Boy, am I thankful for Fridays. Did anybody else’s week go by crazy fast? Mine sure did. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite new finds- this gorgeous & girly pink maxi skirt. I have been a little bit obsessed with midi/maxi skirts this past year and have become something of a collector of anything and everything long and flowy.

When I spotted this little gem on Nordstrom for under $50, I knew it would get lots of love in my wardrobe. I absolutely love how feminine and flouncy it is with the wrap fit and tie waist detail. I also think this skirt is incredibly flattering as well. As for sizing, I definitely think it does run true to size. I feel like I am constantly having to get pieces altered (because I am 5’1), so it’s always refreshing to find something that is the perfect length for me. If you are a tall gal, I think this skirt would also look beautiful as a midi skirt paired with neutral sandals or chic wedges! I paired it with my go-to layered, white crop top and my favorite nude heels. This look would be perfect for any spring occasion like a wedding or even Easter! Speaking of Easter, I can’t wait to be back in Texas next Friday. I’ve definitely been having tex-mex withdrawals lately.

Cheers to the weekend!

Little Black Jumpsuit

JUMPSUIT lush black gauze jumpsuit (under $60, but currently sold out- linked similar options below) | NECKLACE squash blossom dupe (linked this season’s version) | SHOES black espadrille wedges (under $100) | PURSE louis vuitton neverfull tote

Happy Wednesday! I am a strong believer that every girl needs a little black dress jumpsuit in her closet. You know, the perfect little black jumpsuit that works for brunch with the girls, date night, and even that long plane flight you’ve been dreading. Jumpsuits are such a staple in my closet, and I typically find myself reaching for them more often than I do my flouncy sundresses. There’s just something about jumpsuits. They are casual and comfortable, but they still exude effortless confidence and make any outfit a little extra chic.

I can admit that I first saw this jumpsuit hanging in my mom’s closet back in March (can you tell raiding my mom’s closet is one of my favorite activities?). I tried it on & fell in love. I ended up hopping on Nordstrom and ordering the exact same one for myself! Unfortunately this exact jumpsuit is sold out at the moment, but fingers crossed it will come back in stock soon. I’ve noticed that this piece has gone out of stock more than once on Nordstrom, which is not shocking to me because it’s such a great find (especially for under $60!).

For dinner with my dad, I paired this jumpsuit with a statement necklace and black Steve Madden espadrille wedges (that I recently featured in brown). Though I do adore these affordable, espadrille wedges, I must admit that you do have to break them in. Definitely opt for a band-aid on your heel the very first time you wear them! Besides that tiny, initial downside, I am still not over how much I love them. As for this statement necklace, I purchased it from BaubleBar quite a while ago. In my dream wardrobe, I would definitely a real turquoise squash blossom necklace. The dupe will suffice for now! Though this exact one is no longer on the BaubleBar site, BaubleBar did create one with their Target collab that’s incredibly similar! If you haven’t seen BaubleBar’s collaboration with Target, definitely take a peak. Your wallet will thank you.

I think a black jumpsuit would also be perfect with neutral (or bright colored) sandals and a cross-body purse for a casual day of shopping or exploring. Would this jumpsuit not be absolutely amazing for a beach trip? I definitely think so! Hopefully this jumpsuit comes back in stock again ASAP because it’s wonderful. I have linked several other black jumpsuits for spring below! I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

xoxo,

Mackenzie
