Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you are enjoying what's left of summer. :) This time of year has always been a favorite but with all the new fall fashion coming out I have to say that it's getting me excited for a fresh, new season. I can still be found enjoying a sunny beach day with my family or getting together with friends for a fun backyard BBQ but I have to admit that I'm looking forward to cool, crisp, cozy weather and wearing layers which is a rarity here in Florida.
The fabulous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing but it ends on Sunday, so just two days left! Come and do a little window shopping along with me and you can see what I have my eye on right now, you can click on the banner bar underneath each of my picks to link directly to the products. All of these items are on sale at fabulous prices. I'm actually narrowing down some choices for my hubby right now as my birthday is at the end of this month and he asked me what I'd most like. As much as I love surprises, sometimes it's just nice to get something you pick out for yourself.
If you haven't shopped at Nordstrom online before, it's a must! They have so many amazing brands and I have to say they make everything so easy with free shipping and free returns too! With an active 11 month old baby, it's actually far easier for me to shop online during her nap or bedtime then it is to pack everything up and head to a physical store to browse and try things on with her, I'd rather do it in the comfort of my own home. Besides, who doesn't love the excitement of anticipating a package in the mail? I love knowing that if something doesn't fit exactly as I had hoped that returns and exchanges are effortless. Let's start with shoes, shall we?
I love the polished and elegant look of a pointy toe when it comes to pumps and you can't miss with an ankle strap details or lace up version. For practicality purposes I find round-toe, flat equestrian style boots to be the perfect go-to during the cooler months.
When I think of fall I immediately think of leather, layering, zipper details, thicker materials and darker hues. I like to add a bit of edge to a more elegant, feminine look especially for evening. Likewise, I enjoy adding a bit of glitz and sparkle to an otherwise casual look like this gray sweater.
I love a well-structured handbag, larger ones that keep their shape are essential to a polished look. I have many that I've owned over a decade and they never go out of style. I also look for cross-body bags and clutches when I'm out for a casual day running errands but still want to look polished without carrying a lot. I like this leopard smart case for my iPhone, keys, a bit of cash and a few cards. This happy poppy color is great for summer and transitioning into fall.
Can you tell I'm a bit obsessed with gold right now? I love the delicate nature of the thin pave X bracelet and yet at the same time I really like the vibe of this wider V-bar cuff too. I'm a sucker for watches with a diamond bezel look but I'm also loving this one with the tortoise shell insert. I'm not much of a necklace gal these days with a small baby who reaches for everything. You can usually find me wearing a pair of earrings, my wedding rings and a watch or bracelet/bangles (sometimes a combination). Since ear buds hurt my ears, I thought these headphones were a stylish option.
Ever since I began wearing makeup I've always gravitated towards a minimal, natural, neutral look that doesn't look as though makeup is being worn at all. Soft, clean skin is important to me so this is my secret weapon! It removes 30x the pollution and 6x the makeup vs. water and cleanser alone. I can actually see and feel a difference in my skin each time. Also, I can never get enough of a quality moisturizer, it just keeps skin looking healthy. I've heard amazing things about this Hollywood contouring cheekbone/blush kit. I want to see if it's as good as everyone says!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
