Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I look forward to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale every year.  I always manage to find a few goodies to bring home and this year was no exception!  I headed out this past week to shop the sale with my good friend and found some gorgeous new fall items!

Here are my picks for this year's sale:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

SO what did I actually bring home with me?  There were a few pretties I couldn't pass up:

Faux Fur Vest (Top Shop)

My store didn't have this in stock so I ordered it and it just arrived yesterday!  I have wanted a faux fur vest for years and even bought one a few years back but ended up not loving the neckline on it so I returned it.  This one, however, is a keeper!  It's the perfect shade of gray/brown and fits so well.  Sadly it's now sold out online....hopefully they'll restock!

I sort of have a thing for neutral heels and this one had me at hello!!!  It is a stunner on and I love the fun heel...you can't tell in the pictures but it's metallic!  These will look great with skirts and skinnies!

Kate Spade has the most gorgeous jewelry!  I loved this fab cocktail ring...so pretty!

Perfect to throw on when headed to the gym or a work night!


Love these bracelets to throw on with a stack...perfect for fall! And both are just under $18 each...steal!!!  I couldn't pass up getting one of each color.

And there's a few things I'm still on the hunt for or still mulling over...

I love Zella workout clothes...they are great quality and just really cute!!!  I would wear these a ton!  I had them both in my cart and just yesterday they both sold out online so I'm wondering if maybe I can track them down at a store...hmmm...

Another cute bracelet that would look great stacked.  This one is also sold out online now...perhaps a restock will occur???  We'll see.

Surfice Pointy Toe Pump (Steve Madden)

These heels are so eye catching and I think they would be so fun to style.  I'm still trying to decide...what do you think???

The one item I really love but just didn't work out for me was the Steve Madden "Carrter" Knee-High Leather boots in Cognac...these are gorgeous and exactly what I'm looking to add to my closet this fall but they were just a tad wide around my chicken legs.  The circumference is 14" so I thought there might be a chance but they just looked too big.  BOO!  If you don't have an issue with the circumference you should give them a try...they really are adorbs!

What have you picked up during the sale? Still looking?  Headed back for more?  I'm going on a girls trip to Nashville in a couple weeks with friends so we'll be shopping the sale once more I'm sure while we're there.  Never know what you missed the first few times! =)


Since we're on the topic of shopping great deals, don't miss out on Piper Street's latest new arrivals!  We have TONS of great summer styles in the shop right now!  Plus we're releasing the MUST HAVE white summer maxi tonight in the store at 9pm EST...this gorgeous dress is amazing!

Shannon from Birdalamode looks so fab in it!  We're so excited to release it tonight!  Don't miss out!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Summer Maxi

Summer is nearly here and I am all about the maxi dress.  After a few days of wearing jeans or shorts I'm usually in the mood to change it up and go for a maxi dress...it's just so comfortable and there are so many amazing maxi's out there!  A recently wore a maxi dress I found on sale at Nordstrom and I can definitely say it'll be in my constant rotation all summer long.  I love a great short sleeve maxi (although you can't see the sleeves since I have a jacket on...it was a chilly morning)!!!

Caslon High/Low Maxi-Nordstrom (sold out online but new prints on sale HERE)
Ivory Statement Flower Necklace-Piper Street (sold out)
Golden Totem Bracelet set-Anthropologie
Dimpled Hoop Earrings-Anthropologie
Ring-antique from my grandma

Here's a few more maxis I'm loving for summer:

Are you a maxi dress girl? Where's your favorite place to find a great maxi?  Do tell!!!

Have a great day!!!

My Favorite new Anthro Skirt and a Piper Street giveaway!!!

Hi all!  

It's been far longer than I realized...goodness!  Just wanted to pop in and say hi!  Mother's Day AND my 13 year wedding anniversary were both last week so I was spoiled by my hubby and boys...so fun!  I walked away from all the celebrating with this gorgeous new skirt from Anthropologie for my anniversary.  I've had my eye on it for quite some time so I was excited to get to wear it to church on Mothers Day:

Tribal Print

A huge trend this past year has been tribal print and from the looks of it it's going strong into spring.  It's all over!  I happen to love it if it's done right, like in this cute top:

Original Polyvore set for this look can be found HERE

"Emrie" Top-Piper Street
Eunice Cashmere Cardi-Anthropologie
Jeggings-American Eagle
Miz Mooz "Siri" Knee-High Boots-Amazon
Beaded Seaford Strands Necklace-Anthropologie
Marc by Marc Jacobs "Henry Chrono" Watch-Piperlime
Dimpled Hoop Earrings-Anthropologie
Linked Circle Ring-Anthropologie

As much as I love this Aztec-print top, the necklace was what I started with when putting together this outfit.   I absolutely love the colors!!!

Have you jumped on the tribal/aztec-print bandwagon??

Running Around

My days are full of running...running a household, running around town, running a business and even running on a treadmill some mornings...running seems to be my theme.  On days I'm running all over it's best to be comfortable.  Just because I want to be comfortable doesn't mean I have to give up trying to look put together though!  

Original Polyvore set for this look can be found HERE

Kaleidoscope Pocket Tee-Anthropologie
Cardigan-Banana Republic-Old
Miz Mooz "Kelsey" Boots-Piperlime
Double Torsade Necklace-Anthropologie
Dimpled Hoop Earrings-Anthropologie
Frisian Layered Bracelet-Anthropologie
Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I am a firm believer that if you take an extra few minutes to put yourself together, throw on a necklace and do your make-up and hair, you'll feel so much better than if you didn't.   I always do!  You don't have to be dressed to the nines to feel put together...this outfit was simply a tee, a cardigan jeans and some boots...nothing fancy.  With the necklace though, it all of a sudden looked cuter.  With my hair and make-up done, it looked 10 times better!  And I felt more confident than if I had walked out in sweats and some running shoes.  Running around all day should not require running shoes...no lie. =)

Happy Thursday!

Primary Colors

It's not often I wear primary colors but this outfit was all about them...

Original Polyvore set for this look can be found HERE

Printed Bow Neck Top-J Crew Factory
Lapis Lace Pencil Skirt-Anthropologie
Tights-Gap Factory
"Dominique" Pointed Toe Pump-Target
Frisian Layered Bracelet-Anthropologie
Mezzanine Earrings-Anthropologie
Ring-Banana Republic

For some reason when I tried this top on at J Crew Factory all I could think about was pairing it with a cobalt blu-ish colored skirt.  I went home and found this skirt hanging in my closet (closest to cobalt blue I have) and decided they were perfect for each other. 

Happy Tuesday!
