What I Wore

A short and sweet post today!  This one highlights some of my Nordstrom sale finds...the ones I have received and aren't on backorder (so not much! LOL) and my new pair of JCrew jeans I scored at the outlets!

I've said before that I never buy anything unless I have an idea where I am going to wear it!  If you read my post Monday, you know these jeans spoke to me!!!  Not only did I LOVE the price but I knew right away what I would pair them with!
 The detail on this shirt is not white...but it's a perfect match to the jeans!!  YAY!!  There are lots of things I can mix and match but white and off white is not one of them!  

I really like this shirt.  I think I can wear it with a lot of things.  These midi shorts from Piper Street fit the bill for the shirt's first outing!  I am going to Girls Night on Friday and think I may wear it with a pair of JCrew Factory shorts.  (They're great...I keep scooping up a different color when I see them on sale!)

Another sale item I got was this tank!  Now I'll be honest, I haven't worn it yet.  I tried it on and decided this is something that even though it's a tank, it will have to stay in my closet until Fall.  So then I decided to style it for Fall to see if I liked it enough to keep!  IT IS perfect for leggings but I think I'm going to exchange it for a smaller size!!  But the more I look at this pic, the more I like it!  And I can throw on any color cardi and a variety of necklaces to jazz it up!
Have you shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Let me know what you bought and love!!

And just for fun, I'm throwing in this dress I wore to a Luau last night!  The luau is an event that my mom's work puts on every year and it is so much FUN!  And also the reason why I'm posting so late today!!  HA!  I have had this dress for probably about three years!  And yesterday was the first time I took the tags off!  EEEKKKK!!  But I got it on super duper sale at White House Black Market!  Which is really the only way I can ever buy anything from there.  (I'm a poor catholic school teacher, ya know!)  But I loved it.  It is swimsuit material...which was perfect for a hot, humid night on the beach!  Didn't have to worry about the heat though because there were gale force winds to keep us cool!

That's all for now!  Have a great week!  Whatever you do, have FUN and look fabulous!!!

  1. Ooh, I love browsing through your anniversary sale choices! The long tunic tank with the lace at the bottom is great! There is only one pair of shoes that calls my name from the sale, but they have a FIVE inch heel. So that's keeping me from pressing the order button. I might need to try them on in person first.

  2. oh I saw that tunic with the lace on Andrea's blog, It's much longer in person than in the picture! I might have to order one too...hmmm...I've already done 3 separate orders! Yikes I have a problem, lol. But your fall outfit is perfect.

  3. oh so cute!!!
    I haven't ever shopped at Nordstroms! Need to make a trip to the US just for some shopping!

  4. Love the tank with the cardigan, leggings and boots!! Great outfit!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
