PERFECTLY PASTEL











Pants - Forever 21
Shoes - via Nordstrom Rack (sold out there but still available HERE)
Bag - Tory Burch
Necklace - Old
Bracelets - Kendra Scott, J Crew (one and two) and Baublebar 


I'm always on the lookout for great alternatives to jeans.  Don't get me wrong, I love a great pair of denim but it's fun to have different bottom options to change it up now and again. These light and airy pants were a tad too long for my short legs so I had them altered and now I love them! Perfect with heels for a dressed up look in these warm summer months. 

Speaking of summer, how is it going to be August this coming weekend? Time is flying!!!  I'm not ready for these lazy summer days to end!!

MIXED PRINTS








********************

"Sam" Top - Piper Street // "Hayden" Jeans - Piper Street // 
"Rowan' Heels - Piper Street // Necklace - Piper Street // 
Bracelets - J Crew Factory (one, two and three) and Kendra Scott //
Ring - Baublebar (similar) // Watch - Kate Spade (similar) // Earrings - similar

********************

One of my favorite trends that's stuck around for a few years now (and I'll be honest, I hope it never goes away!!!) is mixing prints. Florals and stripes are my absolute favorite prints to mix so when this top came into my life I was like a kid in a candy store!  It's also a winner because it requires no extra layering to wear it...it's not see-through but still lightweight which is a summer must in this mid-west humidity! It's like winning the lottery when you find something like that, am I right?!

Head on over to Piper Street to catch all our new arrivals from last night, including the "Sam" top...my favorite!!  

And if you want a chance to win a $50 gift card to Piper Street make sure to enter our Facebook contest TODAY!  Just tell us where your favorite vacay spot is and you could be or lucky winner!!! Contest ends tonight so run, don't walk!!

My son asked me what my favorite color was the other day.  Guess what I said...pink of course!! I've always loved pink and especially pink paired with white. For a few years I went all rebellious and said my favorite color was red but deep down I'm pretty sure it was pink all along (wink-wink!!)  This Pleione top was a spur of the moment purchase and I'm loving it! I can't wait to pair it with my denim skirt for a whole new look! If you love Pleione tops as much as I do you should head over to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and pick out your new favorite...there are a ton of options on sale for great prices right now (some even under $30!!) The print above is sadly now sold out but there's some super cute prints and solids now available....here are a few of my favorite Pleione options:

SHORT HAIR "TWIST DO" TUTORIAL

I've had short hair for many years now and anyone with short hair will tell you, finding ways to style it can be a challenge! I not only have short hair, but it's super fine and thin too so I'm even more limited on what actually looks good. A few years back I was wishing so badly I could do a really cute braid with the front section of hair...I had tried multiple times to do it but it just wouldn't work.  I didn't have enough hair to make it stay in, to make it look good, to make it work at all! Then I found a picture on Pinterest of a girl with super long hair who had twisted the front of her hair to give it the braided look without actually braiding...the faux-braid! Genius! Now, it's my go-to for up-do's.  I recorded a quick 5 minute (just over 5 min) tutorial on how you can do this with your hair too! Just a warning...I've never recorded a tutorial before so bear with me. This was a learning experience. Hopefully I didn't block the camera too much and you can still see what you need to so you can try this "do" out on your own too!




Happy twisting!!!

Jenni

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE PICKS!!!


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10
11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21

It's that time again...the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has begun!!! Early access for cardholders is happening now...then this Friday it opens up to everyone!  I've scoured the sale online and was able to stop in at my Nordstrom over the weekend to do a little shopping...it certainly didn't disappoint! I've put together my list of top sale picks above...there are so many more things I liked but these are my absolute favorites!!

I snapped a few pics while shopping the sale...




I fell in love with this TrouvĂ© Drape Collar Leather Jacket online and loved it even more in person! My store only had it in black but I had my eye on the brown so I ended up ordering it online.  I took this in an XS. It's the most soft and buttery leather and falls so well in the front...just perfection! This will be worn a ton this fall!


I'm dying for these rag & bone "Margot" booties! They fit my foot like a glove! I'm wearing them in an 8.5 which is my normal size so I'd say they run true to size.  I would think if you have wide feet though, you may need to size up. I love the shape of them at the ankles and how they are flush against my foot.  They are literally the perfect bootie!




I had my eye on both of these Rebecca Minkoff bags when I browsed online so I was excited to see both in person at my store. They only had a few of each left so they were moving fast! I ended falling in LOVE with the "Lexi" bucket bag option because come on, how cute is that?? It's a great neutral color (blush/taupe-ish color--great year-round!!) and the size was perfect. I love that you can wear it as a cross body bag or a shoulder purse.....and the chain detail and tassels are super cute!  Just all-around amazing design! I really did like the "Moto Hobo" bag too and think it is a fabulous option...but the bucket bag...ahhh!

So there's a peek into my sale finds...I have a few other things to review from my sale pick list but will save those for later. Have you done any sale damage yet? What are your absolute must-haves? I'd love to hear!

Happy Sale Shopping!

The Perfect White Distressed Denim











"Easton Top" - Piper Street / Paige Verdugo Petite Jeans -Anthropologie / 
Dolce Vita Sandals - Nordstrom Rack / Clutch - c/o Gigi New York / Necklace - Piper Street / Bracelets - J Crew Factory (THIS and THIS) and Kendra Scott / Earrings - Francesca's (similar) / Rings - ASOS and J Crew Factory


I have been searching high and low for months now for the perfect pair of white distressed denim. I have a few criteria when it comes to distressed white denim...first of all, they can't be totally see-through...no one needs to see all that! Second, I look for the main distressing to be mostly around the knee area (not all up the leg). Lastly, I have somewhat oddly short legs for someone my height and have to buy petite length denim most times to accommodate my proportions. This can be tricky when searching for denim sometimes because not all denim comes in petite length! With these three criteria in mind and after ordering and trying on countless pairs of distressed white denim FINALLY I'm happy to say I've found the PERFECT pair! I am in love with my Paige Verdugo Petite Jeans from Anthropologie! They aren't too thin, not too distressed and just the right length...winner!! If you're looking for petite length denim these are definitely worth giving a try. I already had a love for Paige denim but now I love it even more!

And can I just say how much I'm loving this fun top from Piper Street? The gorgeous print and lace trim detailing is the cutest!!!  Check out all of Piper Street's latest New Arrivals HERE!!  And set your alarms because our next roll out of new items arrives tonight at 9pm EST!!  Don't miss it!
