I am sure you are starting to sense a common theme around here. Yes, I will confess. I have a ruffle problem. And the funniest thing is until last year, I never really liked them! Ruffles of the past, in my opinion, were over the top girly and often seemed overwhelming. Which I realize is ironic since this lilac ruffle sleeve cardigan has some pretty big sleeves.
Styling a white blouse is one of the easiest ways to take a piece from season to season. As I mentioned last week, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has a tendency to give you unrealistic ideas about what month it actually is! I found myself telling my hair stylist yesterday that my hair was getting too blonde and we needed to darken it for fall. He looked at me like I was crazy and said, “Rachel, it’s the first day of August!” Needless to say, I have fall on my mind! In an effort to stay season appropriate, I wanted to share two looks today that incorporate the same white eyelet top styled for summer and fall.
The combination of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the cooler temperatures this week have me counting down the days until fall. One color that I have been loving and wearing since January is green. I had high hopes for this shade when it was announced as the Pantone Color of the Year and it has not disappointed. I’m so excited to share today’s fall color inspiration with you because it’s a shade that continues to grow on me (and in my closet!). All of these pieces are perfect for transitioning from summer to fall.
With the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the books, it really has me ready for fall. After searching the sale up and down for the past week, it’s amazing how many pieces come back each year. These reoccurring pieces are typically clones from previous seasons, but sometimes they have a slightly different design. Today, I’m talking about four fall favorites on sale during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
The sale itself can be overwhelming: not only in the quantity of sale items but also in the publicizing of the event (especially in the blogging world). For a different take on the sale, I’m sharing my top 10 must-have items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with you today. I’ve selected some of the best deals, closet staples and pieces that I already own so you can add them to your closet this fall. A few of these items are already in my cart!
