I feel like I’ve been going through a major punk stage lately (can’t type this with a straight face).
Ok, I’m totally kidding. Or rather, I don’t really think ‘punk’ (ha!) is the right adjective/word, but instead I mean….maybe more like, ‘laid back’? Or I don’t know, I just don’t really feel like dressing very ‘uppity’ (is this a legit word?) lately. If that makes sense? I go through stages like this a lot actually. Anyone else ever experience this?
I’ve been making an effort lately to be more ‘versatile’ with my wardrobe; and I’ve been doing this for purchasing power purposes (ha!), but really more so that I can show you different ways to wear certain key pieces. (speaking of, did you see the ‘one piece three ways’ post I did on that black swing dress a few weeks back?)
I never thought I’d like bright orange and pink together, but something about this top and necklace combo completely changed my mind. I actually had the necklace on from another outfit I was waring the previous day when I put this shirt on…and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it with the orange. And so I left it…and added the tote to tie it all together.
With the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale going on and wedding season in FULL swing, I thought it might be helpful to put together a round up of summer dresses for you all. I’ve had several requests lately for dress options to wear to weddings, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, showers etc. and I think all these options would be great. I tried to only choose dresses that were available in more than a few sizes too! However I put this together yesterday and everything is selling SUPER fast!
This tunic had me at ‘cool mint’ – meaning the color had me wide eyed and in love. And it’s even prettier in person! I also love the length (it fits longer) and the material of it (hard to explain but it’s soft and not too thin either). It’s such an easy throw on with jeans and would also be cute as a beach coverup or over shorts :)
When it’s chilly out, I find myself wanting to throw on an oversized (cozy) sweater and skinnies pretty much every single day. And so on the flip side, when it’s warmer out, I want to wear a swing dress (just like this one!) EVERY single day. I really like this one – the fabric is comfortable and has a little bit of stretch to it (so it’s not just plain cotton).
ooops! I’ve been meaning to post this for a little while now – it’s just been sitting in my ‘drafts’ folder. And since this top is STILL 40% off and available in all sizes, I figured I’d go ahead and post while it’s still available. Also, these shorts are super fun and comfortable too. They have a stretchy waist and are relatively high-waisted (which we all know I love!)
