Nordstrom Sale: Women’s Clothing

Welcome to my Nordstrom Sale blog post!! I will constantly be updating this post for you guys, so sorry if it looks a little bare right now!

Only cardholders can shop the sale for early access now. If you open up a Nordstrom card today or when you want to shop the sale, you get a $40 Nordstrom note. And then you don’t even have to use the Nordstrom card to actually shop! You just have to have one. If you don’t want a Nordstrom card, you can shop the sale starting July 20th (this is no big deal!).

Before I start, I want to say a big THANK YOU to those of you who shop through my links when you buy something that I post. It means the world to me because I know it is sometimes easier to shop blogger’s posts when they have the “swipe up” feature on Instagram. I promise I only post things that I actually love or believe in and I appreciate your support SO MUCH! Ok, here are my picks.

Heather High Waist Distressed Skinny Jeans,
                        Main,
                        color, Newark

Articles Of Society High Waist Distressed Jean / $44.90. I really liked these jeans! True to size- I wore a size 27. These are a great trendy jean option for fall if you don’t want to spend $150 on a trendy designer jean (like me!!).

Verse Tie Back Top,
                        Alternate,
                        color, Spiced Rose

Madewell Verse Tie Back Top / $32.90. I loved this top! It comes in navy and ivory too.

Quarter Zip Sweater,
                        Main,
                        color, Heather Grey

Love By Design Quarter Zip Sweater / $35.90. OMG!!!! This has got to be my favorite thing from the sale that I got this year!!! I’m so obsessed with the fit, style, and material. It reminds me of those 90’s movies with Julia Roberts and those sexy casual looks she would wear! Beyond obsessed. True to size (I got a small).

Levi’s 501 Taper Ripped Boyfriend Jean / $85.90. Omggg!!!! These are the most flattering boyfriend jeans I have ever tried on. I was skeptical at first because honestly- boyfriend jeans can sometimes make my figure look kind of blah. I am curvy on the bottom and I love these boyfriend jeans because they still give your booty some shape and aren’t totally baggy back there! I sized up to a 28.

Rugby Shirt,
                        Main,
                        color, Orange Oak Rugby Stripe

BP Rugby Shirt / $38.90. I loooooove this top!!! I haven’t seen any bloggers that I follow post this one yet, so I was so excited to try it on! This is a great transitional top that you can wear with jean shorts now and your boyfriend jeans later! It does run big- I tried on the XXS and purchased the XS.

Thermal Henley Top,
                        Main,
                        color, Heather/ Charcoal

Thermal Henley Top / $24.90. I tried this on in the camo which is SO cute, but currently sold out! Don’t worry though- they usually do several restocks during the anniversary sale, so I will let you know on Instagram when they restock! I would still recommend ordering one of the solid colors of these henley tops. They are soooo soft and flattering. I will be wearing this shirt 24/7 this fall. True to size for a fitted look, or size up for a cute oversized look with these.

Goal Digger Sweatshirt,
                        Main,
                        color, Heather Grey

Goal Digger Sweatshirt / $25.90. I love this sweatshirt!!! Great casual weekend wear and it reminds me of Wildfox!

High Waist Cutoff Skinny Jeans,
                        Main,
                        color, Dark Wash

High Waist Cutoff Skinny Jeans / $42.90. I found my new go-to jeans!!!! These are sooooo flattering, lift your booty, and are comfy (but not too stretchy). Do yourself a favor and order these!!! They look like premium designer jeans for just under $43. True to size and a no brainer!!

Misty Asymmetrical Dress,
                        Main,
                        color, Balsam Green

Misty Asymmetrical Dress / $41.90. This dress is a STEAL!!! So flattering and pretty material. I got this in a size small and can’t wait to wear it to dinner at the beach, and I might even dress it up with heels for a wedding in August. Also comes in a light blush color!

Fleece Lined Corduroy Jacket,
                        Main,
                        color, Brown Cattail

BP. Fleece Lined Corduroy Jacket / $49.90. I am so excited about this find!! I was looking for a jacket like this all last fall/winter. It is a bomber material in the inside, so it is definitely more substantial than it looks. I wore a size small and I’m beyond obsessed with this jacket!! So much cuter in person, too.

SPANX Faux Leather Leggings / $66.90. I own these and wore them probably 4x a week this fall/winter/spring. I wear a size small in these and they are the most flattering pants I have EVER put on! You can wear them casual with a t-shirt knotted up and sneakers, or dress them up with a cropped sweater and boots. These are a must have in my opinion!!

ZELLA Live In High Waist Legging  / $35.90. Another legging that I cannot live without. These leggings are more for exercise purposes and for running errands around town etc! But they are my FAVORITE!!! If you don’t have a pair of black athletic leggings, buy these now and thank me later! True to size.

WACAOL Perfect No Wire Contour Bra / $39.90. Y’all. I was praying this would be on the sale! This has been my favorite bra for the last 4 years!! I will never wear an underwire bra- I HATE them!!! This bra is the most comfortable, flattering bra. It gives you a really nice shape, but doesn’t have “padding”. It is also SUPER supportive. This is the only bra that I can wear all day long without it bothering me. I cannot believe the sale price!! I am going to order the darker color at this price. Try this bra for sure. True to size.

BLANK NYC Madison Straight Leg Crop Jean  / $59.90. I don’t have these, but I’m ordering them. I feel like they are a more flattering version of the “mom jean” trend that is in right now! My sister got a pair of similar BLANK NYC jeans at Nordstrom this summer and I’ve been kind of jealous of hers (lol), so I’m going to try these!

More coming soon!

10 Quick Steps: My Summer Wedding & Events Makeup Look

img_2620

DRESS // $78. SHOES // $49. TASSEL EARRINGS // $16. CLUTCH // $50.

We had the best time at our friends Carly and Ben’s wedding a couple weekends ago. She looked gorgeous and his face when she walked down the aisle was EVERYTHING. Anyway, I thought I would share my makeup routine step by step from that night because it stayed ALL night long through the heat and hours of dancing and drinking! Here we go..! (Click text links for the product page.. I only linked to Ulta & Nordstrom- my two favorite places to buy makeup!)

1.) I always prep my skin with this moisturizer ($30, Ulta) and do my brows before starting my makeup routine!

2.) Next I used this lightly tinted bronzing primer ($49, Nordstrom) that has SPF 20, which is great for summer evenings when the sun is still out. This bronzing primer smooths your complexion and adds a sun kissed look before using foundation. I also wear it without foundation for a light coverage look. I will also note that the brand, Colorescience, is VERY good for your skin and I’ve had several dermatologists recommend this brand to me- which makes it easy for me to spend the money on this primer!

3.) I primed my eyelids with this long lasting eye primer ($22, Ulta) in color Painterly! This is a MUST for any wedding or event so that your eyeshadow doesn’t budge or bleed.

4.) I used this $12 eyeshadow palette (Ulta) for my smokey eye. I applied the color “Taken” all over my lower lid and used one of the lighter shades in my crease to blend. I have been using this palette nonstop for the last month or two.

5.) Next I applied my favorite FAVORITE FAVORITEEEEE long lasting photo PERFECT foundation ($48, Nordstrom). I absolutely LOVE this foundation. It seriously lasts all night long and makes your skin look flawless. When I came home from this long night of dancing and drinking (and sweating-yikes), my foundation still looked great! (I wear color Buff.)

6.) I used my paint pot eyeliner ($18, Ulta) next. I applied it along my lash line with an angled brush- any angled brush will work, but I prefer this one– I’ve had it for a while.

7.) Next I applied my $8 waterproof mascara (Ulta)!

8.) I applied this blurring powder as a setting powder ($38, Ulta) in the areas that I tend to get oily. And after applying the blurring powder, I applied my go-to ABSOLUTE favorite dim lighting powder ($22, Nordstrom) alllll over my face with a big powder brush ($30, Nordstrom).

9.) Lastly I applied this matte bronzer ($15, Nordstrom) that I’ve used since high school on my cheeks, jawline, and top of my forehead. After that I applied a little bit of the best illuminating/bronzing powder ($44, Nordstrom) in color Bali Brown on my cheeks for that summer glow with the same brush! To make sure these were blended well, I went back over my face with the big powder brush I used earlier with the dim lighting powder.

10.) Lastly I applied my tried and true lip products! I used this lip liner in color Whirl to slightly overline my lips and my favorite gloss in color Ballet Pink ($9, Ulta) for the past few months!

And voila!! That probably sounded like a lot of work, but I did this whole look in less than 15 minutes. Let me know if you have any questions about these products in the comments below!! I will be sure to answer them ASAP! XOXO, Olivia

Summer Weddings & Events: What to Wear!!

Summertime is finally here!! We have some weddings and events coming up, and I have been on the hunt for the perfect dresses. I’m a huge online shopper, and it can be so hard to tell what a dress really looks like in person. I thought I would take some of the hard work away from y’all and show you 4 dresses in different lengths that I ended up loving for summer events! I’m also sharing my favorite accessories to wear them with, and 2 additional dresses that I don’t own but am confident will work for any summer event! All of these are from Nordstrom which means free shipping (yay!).

You can visit my Instagram stories for a peek at what these dresses look like in person.

1.) NSR Ruffle Hem Minidress (also comes in black and a gorgeous blush!!) / $78. I am in love with this dress!! When I opened the package- I literally gasped with excitement! This is the dress I had been waiting for! It is SO much more beautiful in person than online. The quality is super high, the fabric and fit are gorgeous, and I love it in every color! I wear the size small. I think this would be great for a summer wedding or event!! I ordered the orange which is gorgeous, but if you don’t love orange definitely try this blush pink color. It’s stunning!! It also comes in black which would be great for a cocktail party.

Ruffle Hem Minidress,                         Main,                         color, Blush

2.) NSR Gracie Cupro Mid Length Body-Con Dress / $36.90 (RUN!) Oh my goodness. I just love the fit, feel, and color of this dress. It is a soft, flattering material that is double lined- so you don’t have to worry about undergarments showing! You can also easily wear a strapless bra. I wear a size small. I think this dress could be great for a summertime wedding or wedding rehearsal- especially if you dress it up with fancy gold hoops and a gold clutch! It would also be great for any cocktail party or event. This also comes in black! Gracie Cupro Body-Con Dress,                         Main,                         color, Cinnabar

3.) WAYF Ruffle Cut Out Maxi Dress / $109. Okay, this dress is unique and a fun change of pace to what I normally wear. I spotted this dress about a month ago in stores and didn’t have time to try on, so immediately went home and ordered it.. that is how gorgeous it is in person!! Immediately after trying it on for the first time, I started noticing that a lot of big time bloggers started posting about this dress- and there’s a reason!! It is SO cute and fun. I wear a small. You will definitely get so many compliments on this dress all night long at any summer wedding you attend!Milan Cut Out Ruffle Maxi Dress,                         Main,                         color, Ivory Floral

4.) Leith Racerback Dress / $29. This is my tried and true, go-to summer wedding and event dress. I have worn it countless times in the pink color!! Charity events, weddings, out on the town, birthdays… you name it! I recently ordered the navy pinstripe and wore with gold jewelry and wedges for an engagement party. If you don’t already own this dress, I suggest ordering it in at least one color for the summer! It comes in tons of color options. At $29 and free shipping you can’t beat it! I wear a size small.

Racerback Shift Dress,                         Main,                         color, Red Baroque

Accessories that I wore with each dress:

Leith Gold Strappy Heels / $59. True to size, reasonably comfortable for the style, gorgeous fit and color.

Taupe Wrap Heels / $48. True to size, very comfortable, and so cute. Get so many compliments on these!

Chelsea 28 Clutch  / $32. This is the same designer and similar style as the clutch I am carrying-which is sold out right now! Love this option though.

A couple of other dresses (both free shipping!) I was going to order if those didn’t work are:

NSR Coral Tie Dye Chiffon Minidress (also comes in blue!!) / $78. This is the first dress by NSR that caught my eye. If it is anything like their other dresses, the color and detail of this dress will be WAY better than it shows online!! I love chiffon dresses and LOVE tie dye! The shape of this dress is so flattering. If another occasion comes up, I will be ordering this dress. I also really love the blue color- I couldn’t decide which image to use!! Great for summer weddings.

Tie Dye Chiffon Minidress,                         Main,                         color, Coral

Nordstrom Try On

Hi guys!! As promised, here are all of the links and details on the pieces I posted on my Instagram story today. I tried on soooo many cute things and wanted everything! Topshop is definitely killing it right now! I’ll try to be as detailed as possible about fit, but if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment on here or message me on Instagram!

*Click on images or text links for product page!*

Ditsy Frill MiiSkirt / $55. Love this skirt! This came home with me. I’m wearing a US 4 and it fits perfectly. It is pretty short, so if you are taller than me (5’7), I wouldn’t recommend it. But it is so flattering and I see myself wearing this all the time!! With sweaters, bodysuits, blouses, casual tanks and tees…. you name it!

Rib Camisole / $10. I love this tank so much!! It comes in a bunch of colors and I plan to buy more! I got this olive color to go with the skirt above. I’m wearing a size US 4.

White Ruffle Minidress / $55. Looooove this dress! It comes in several different colors, but I love the white. It is pretty low in the front, and luckily I was wearing this bralette which I actually think looks really cute. Here is a similar bralette that would look just as good! I am wearing a size US 4 in the dress.

Button-Up Cover Up Dress / $52. This is soooo cute for a cover up!! It is a little bit too thin for a dress, but covers more than enough as a cover up! I will definitely be purchasing this. It comes in more colors too!! It reminds me of Free People. I’m in a size small.

Ring Body-Con Dress / $48. Okay, I know this dress is a little sassy- but I am obsessed with it! The material isn’t too thin for a bodycon dress, and I think it would be so perfect for a bachelorette party, birthday party, Vegas, fun vacay…. I love it! I’m in a size US 2. If you are between sizes, size down. I might order this for the birthday party I don’t even have planned yet.. lol!

Underbust Rib Bodycon Dress / $48. Okay.. another sassy dress! I think this would be great for all of the occasions I talked about for the last dress! I’m in a size US 2 and definitely would need a 4. But it is so cute for a special night out on the town!

Cutout Side Midi Slipdress / $50. I felt really good in this dress in person! The fabric is pretty and it could be dressed up with pretty heels for an event, graduation/engagement party, or a wedding! I would get this in the black color option. I’m wearing a size US 4.

Geo Tie Neck Halter Midi Dress / $90. This dress was not great on me, but would be soooo perfect on someone else! It is gorgeous. This style would be perfect on someone thin without curvy hips! The fabric and quality was amazing for an event or wedding. Loved it, just not for me! 

Turner Sneaker / $48. Major shoe crush!!!! I am so obsessed with these in both color combos! Definitely an affordable option if you love the Golden Goose look.

Nike Blazer Mid Vintage Sneaker / $100. I am ordering these right now!! They are SO cute! A classic and will be a staple with skirts, dresses, jean shorts… everything!! Definitely order these if you are looking for a neutral/go with everything sneaker. 

Hotstuff Toe Ring Sandal / $30. I got these in both colors (they also come in brown)!! I’m telling you- these are the perfect sandals. They are simple, chic, COMFORTABLE… everything I have been looking for in a sandal!! I am seriously considering purchasing two more pairs as backups in case something ever happens to the ones I bought. Order these!! You will thank me later. They remind me of the $200+ Ancient Greek sandals everyone loves.Main Image - Topshop Hotstuff Toe Ring Sandal (Women)

Dior Nude Air Luminizer Powder in “Pink Glow” / $56. This might seem random, but I went over the the beauty section and tried on this amazing highlighter after seeing so much hype about it online. It is GORGEOUS!! I cannot wait to go back and get this!Main Image - Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder

Alright, that’s it!! Let me know your favorites!! If you enjoyed this try on post, check out this one from a few weeks ago! Xoxo, Olivia

Random Obsession: PacSun Picks

But, I wanted to take some time to share a retailer that I have been loving for the past couple of months: PacSun!! I know, I know. When you think of PacSun, you think of “emo” teenagers from 10 years ago. But guys.. Their stuff is SO GOOD! It’s on trend and they have great prices, so I wanted to share my obsession with y’all. Linking some of my favs below!!

PacSun Favorite Mom Jeans / $59. I have been wanting to purchase these “mom jeans” for a while now! They have lots of amazing reviews & are a great price compared to designer “mom” jeans I have seen. These  would be so cute with the above graphic tees knotted up, bodysuits, crop tops, or lightweight sweaters! (The reviews say they run a little big so keep that in mind when ordering!)

LA Hearts Tie Strap Smocked Top / $26. I love this little top! It would be perfect with the mom jeans. It also comes in an adorable white and light blue!

Sports Illustrated Swim Ribbed Cropped Bikini / $64 top & $64 bottom. Ok, this suit is a little pricier but I am SO excited because PacSun carries a good amount of Sports illustrated’s new swim line! I think this one is so gorgeous, flattering, and timeless. Matching bottoms linked here.

Wish List: For The Home

I love decorating our home! It is so much fun to look for things to fill all of the different spaces. When we moved into this new place last summer, we didn’t bring ANYTHING! Not one thing! We hired Maggie from Lucy & Co to do our living room, dining room, and master bedroom. But, I still like doing some random things myself. I’ve learned that it takes a lot of time and patience to fill every space. There are still so many items that are on my wish list for the house, and I have slowly been checking things off the list. Here are some of the items that are still on my wish list!

*Click text link or image for product page!*

Anthropologie White Dipped Ladder / $98. I am planning to purchase this ladder for the master bathroom!! It is almost identical to this $348 white dipped ladder from Serena & Lily. Since when does Anthropologie make these affordable pieces?! Loving it!

Anthropologie Storage Bath Caddy / $148. I am getting this caddy (eventually-lol) for the master bath as well! I think it will add something extra to the space.. and you can fill it with your favorite candle and bath accessories. 

Anthropologie Blue Marisol Pillows / $98 each. I love these pillows for the master bedroom!! I am hesitant because I love to find a deal, but I might go ahead and pull the trigger on these because I haven’t found any that I love more!Slide View: 2: Marisol Pillow

Anthropologie Chevron Hand Towel / I am planning to get this for our powder bathroom downstairs! We have fun blue printed wallpaper in that space, and this towel will accent the walls perfectly.

Pottery Barn Moroccan Twist Fireplace Screen / $199. We are planning to get this fireplace screen for the fireplace in our living room. I can’t wait! I think it will really make the room look more complete. I also like this $78 option from Joss & Main.

Minted Anemone Art Print / $ depends on size. We are putting this piece over the fireplace in our dining room! I’m so excited to see this hanging. I am all about all blue everything! "Anemone" - Art Print by Denise Wong in beautiful frame options and a variety of sizes.World Market All Weather Wicker Outdoor Chair / $199. I have been eyeing these chairs for so long.. I need to just go for it! I would love to have these as an addition around our outdoor fireplace or by the “spa” area. They look so similar to these $600 West Elm chairs!

Pier 1 Hanging Chair / $249. One more thing I would love to have outside is a hanging chair! This would look perfect in the corner of our covered porch. I’m not sure how functional these are, but they are so cute! From what I have seen, this one is a great price.

That is the majority of my wish list! There are more accessories that I have in mind, but I change my mind on those on a daily basis. What is your approach to shopping for your house? Do you like to do everything at once, or slowly finish each space?! Would love to know your thoughts and tips!! Xoxo, Olivia
