More Splurge vs. Save from Nordstrom


One | Two | Three | FourFiveSix |  Seven | Eight

As promised, I’m bringing you another Splurge vs. Save look from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Would you believe the price difference between these two options is almost $1,300?? And that’s while each item is on sale. The Splurge look is $1,858 during the Nordstrom Annivrsary Sale, but will jump to over $3,000 when regularly priced. The save version is $580 now (the jacket is $395) and the whole looks rises to $873 in a couple of weeks. So, whether you think it’s splurge-worthy or you’d rather pocket $1,300 going for the savings, you’ll look fantastic in a fluid, ruffle top over black skinny jeans and suede booties. This look transcends age barriers while looking chic with a bit of an edge, whichever price point you choose!

If you’re looking for a few miscellaneous items to round out your closet, or you need a statement piece, I’ve culled a few pretty splurge vs. save options here as well. There were even two very pretty cold-shoulder LBDs I added as well. You know how I generally feel about the cold-shoulder trend (normally not a fan) but these lovely dresses made the cut. Ha Ha! I’m sure you’ll find something in here that speaks to you. If you do, hurry! Sizes are running out quickly. New items are added every day, so I’ll keep you informed with more looks coming soon.

Thanks for reading!

Nordstrom Sale Favorites




Well, I’ve captured several of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It looks a lot like a not-so-little sister to the original sale catalog. Oops.

Stay tuned as I’ll be featuring some great Hi/Lo looks from the sale in the next couple of days.

#NSale Final Week – Friday

If images do not readily appear, please open in your browser.

It’s Friday loves! This weekend will be huge at the #NSale Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! We’re down to the final four days. Don’t miss out on some great buys for the upcoming fall season.

Rather than put together a single outfit, today I’ve rounded up several individual pieces that work well in the office. A few dresses will help you make a seamless transition from summer to fall.  I hope these items give you some great ideas for your fall wardrobe.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Thank you so much for visiting!

#NSale Final Week – Thursday

If images do not readily appear, please open using your browser.

Happy #NSale Thursday! If you’re new to the site, this week I’m featuring outfits I’m putting together from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Today’s look from “The Sale” features jeans and a moto jacket.  I’ve softened the traditional leather-and-jeans look by adding a print blouse.  If a leather is too bold a statement for your taste, I’ve also included a moto-style sweater as another option.

Fringe was ever present during fall fashion week and this bag brings that trend to the look in an understated way.  I’ve always been a fan of pops of blue with black and white.  How about these cobalt blue booties?  I’m obsessed!  You could also flip the accessories with a streamlined cross-body bag and fringed booties.

Most of the pieces I show above come in a full range of sizes, but I’ve included some other “real-sized” items as well to give you a better idea of how this outfit looks on someone other than a size 0 model.

I hope you find some inspiration with this week’s #NSale looks.  It’s a lot of fun putting them together.  I’ll have one more look tomorrow and then I’m back to summer clothes for awhile.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

#NSale Final Week – Wednesday

If images do not immediately appear, please open in your browser.

For my #NSale Wednesday look, I’m softening the color scheme. Most of the fall fashion week colors were the deep, rich hues we talked about earlier this week, but a few designers featured silver and grey.

I’ve also included two watches as options because, although I really like the white version, many women prefer metal. The rose gold plays off the coral blouse and bag really well.

I’m having a lot of fun putting these looks together. It’s been easier including a collage of pieces in picture form rather than modeling the outfit in this heat!

On a side note, if you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen the latest giveaway I’ve teamed up on.Two winners will receive a gold iPad and a beautiful Kate Spade bag. Be sure to check it out!

I hope you’re having a great week. thank you so much for stopping by!

#NSale Final Week – Monday

This week I’m putting together a few looks with pieces from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  The sale ends Sunday and items are going quickly.  It was a little tough for me to get into a fall frame of mind with triple-digit temperatures but looking through pictures of sale items and fall fashion week gave me inspiration.

It’s no surprise to see rich hues dominating the color scheme, but greys and lighter colors were mixed in a bit as well. I’ve taken those images and put together everyday looks for the office and the weekend.  I hope you’ll find inspiration as well.

Have a great Monday!

Isn’t it ironic the way your office can be cold in the summer and warm in the winter?  I’ve always preferred a colder room but every once in a while even I can get a little chilly.  So even in the furnace blast that is our southwest summer, an office look that includes this 3/4-sleeve top can work.  For those of you scratching your heads at my crazy talk, I’ve linked a short-sleeve top in the same cool cucumber color.  Your entire purchase on the Chico’s website is 40% off today!

Speaking of sales, if you need a little more incentive to check our the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access sale, Nordstrom is offering double points.  Earning points gives you Nordstrom Notes you can use to buy more of the things you love!

Good Morning Friends!  I’m so sorry I’m getting this post out late today.  It’s been a crazy last couple of days!  So much going on at home and at work.  Normally I would put this together Thursday night because I get up soooo early to hike most Fridays, but I needed sleep so I got about halfway through it.  I was doing “touch and goes” at the computer – you know, when you’re typing and you actually fall asleep at the desk?!  My head drops down and snaps back up, which wakes me up so I type a little more, then the same cycle starts again.

I wanted to share today because I finally got the chance to show my birthday present – my new, nude, So Kate pumps!  My husband Andy got them for me and I was so excited!  I’ve been wanting them for so long and they’ve been sold out for months.  And then I waited to wear them so I could get some pictures of the unspoiled soles.  Aren’t they beautiful?

I discovered Christian Louboutin was revamping his entire nude scheme, which may be why the shoes were so hard to find previously.  His shoe line now features several different nude colors because, honestly, there are so many different and beautiful skin tones that a nude shade for you may be completely different than a nude shade for me.  What a genius idea!

Several of the nude styles, including So Kate, are already sold out on their site again.  I’ve linked you to Nordstrom for my shoes and because they’re having their Anniversary Sale Early Access right now.  Early Access is available to Nordstrom credit and debit card holders.  If you’re not already a cardholder you can apply on the Nordstrom site.

Okay, I think I’m all over the map today.  At least it’s Friday so I have some time to regroup!  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Thanks for stopping by – it means so much!
