nordstrom selections

How weird is it that I'm browsing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but not looking at the clothes? To be completely honest, I didn't really find anything I liked, and I'm trying this thing where I limit my shopping purchases to things I actually want... not just because they're on sale.  So I kinda let my eyes (and mouse) wander beyond the discounted clothes, and I found an assortment of home, accessory and beauty goodies instead. The bext part about them? They're actually useful and timeless, so you'll be using them for seasons to come :) Some of my favorites that I've put together in the above collage include: 

Sam Edelman pointed booties
Smashbox "studio pro" brush set 
Initialized anything — love this Lextex accent pillow and Rosanna mug

I've linked the rest of the featured products below, so be sure to check them out, let me know what you think, and let me know what you're buying or loving from this year's Nordstrom sale!

Happy Friday! Off to Chicago for the weekend, so be sure to follow my adventures on Instagram

Dentz Denim sweatshirt // ZARA skirt // B Brian Atwood shoes

Dressing up otherwise casual pieces is probably my favorite way to "dress up", and I would take sweats over a cocktail dress any day. In fact, if I could, I would happily find a way to wrangle my sweat pants, shirts and shorts pieces into my daily wardrobe. I'm always on the lookout for new sweats, so when Dentz Denim invited me to view their collection and style one of their pieces, I was beyond excited! We've been getting tons of rain and grey weather in ATL lately, so this XO sweatshirt has been kind of a godsend to lounge around in at home, run errands around town, and even for casual lunch dates with friends. The best part about it is that it's made of a super soft material, so that plus the slouchy fit makes for a shirt I never wanna take off!

Dentz Denim has an awesome line of shorts, hats, graphic tees and sweatshirts, and they work for literally any and every life occasion — they even have a wedding party line, and I absolutely love the stylized calligraphy on their graphics. They definitely make for super cute memorabilia at you or your friend's upcoming wedding!

ZARA denim overalls // H&M top // New Balance trainers

When I was in 4th grade, one of my classmates always got in trouble because she kept showing up to school in crop tops and overalls... couldn't really blame her though, we basically just wore whatever the Spice Girls said was cool at the time. And according to them, crop tops were everything.
So I guess this is an outfit nod to my rebellious classmate, coming in a little too late at 17 years later, now that I can finally wear whatever I want without having to be sentenced to detention. What can I say, it never hurts to take a walk on the SAFE side every now and then! :)

CÖ top/dress via Urban Outfitters || Ecoté pants via Urban Outfitters || Aldo clutch || Forever 21 jewelry || Dolce Vita sandals 

My biggest wardrobe pet peeve is the number of dresses I have that are yet to be reworn after their first use — they're all either too short (college self, what on earth were you thinking?) or too flashy to be seen around town in too often. In my usual fashion, the coolest thing about most of these dresses are their open backs; open-back anything is basically my kryptonite.

The "top" in these pictures is actually one of these many dresses I own. I bought it at Urban Outfitters back in 2012 to wear in New York City when I went to a Broadway show with my boyfriend at the time, and in real life it actually looks like this. It was gorgeous when I wore the dress back then, and when I tried the dress on recently, I fell in love with the turtleneck + open back details all over again! Short dresses aren't necessarily an outfit go-to for me anymore though, so I decided to get creative. What better way to make it work than by combining it with a pair of ivory wide leg pants? The navy and white make for quite a formal-looking outfit, so it was perfect to wear to a young professionals networking reception I attended this weekend.
