Effortless style is my favorite style—no matter what the season. And there are some outfits that I can rely on to always feel effortless and put together with minimal effort. This is one of them. I love a twist on a white tunic and the lace-up and bell-sleeve detail on this T.J. Maxx top is the perfect addition to a classic favorite. 

Add a pair of detailed shorts—whether scalloped or distressed—and slip into the easiest slide sandals in a nude hue and you have summer style done. I also love adding a cross-body to keep things effortless and hands-free. I love this Covet Bag by Stella & Dot. It goes with everything, is such a classic silhouette and gets bonus points for being buttery soft!

What are your no-fail summer staples?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases and Favorites

Happy Friday! If you haven't heard, today is the day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public, i.e., non-cardholders. I wanted to take the chance to share some of my purchases from the sale. 

Last year, my favorite purchase from the sale was my Halogen cardigans. I got one in grey and one in cognac and not a week goes by that I don't wear one of them—even in the summer. They're great for lounging, early morning/late night walks and keeping at the office for a/c temps.

This year, I snagged this BP cardigan in grey and I know it will be such a staple. I already wore it this past weekend on my flight and tossed it on with shorts and even over a romper for dinner out. I got an XXS. I also highly recommend this relaxed grey tee but it comes in tons of colors. Wearing an xs. I also picked up this long ribbed cardigan and can't wait for it to arrive!

Another favorite staple to pick up during the sale would have to be a moto jacket. Even though I have plenty in my collection, I can never resist adding another. This Topshop biker jacket is perfect and I love the dark grey tone. It will go with everything and is a great change-up from classic black or brown. I'm wearing it with the same grey tee and these Hudson step-hem jeans that fit amazingly well. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top

I can never resist a shoulder-baring top and this Soprano satin cold-shoulder in salmon is a new favorite for me. I always feel like I lack date night tops and this one is great for that, as well as casual days. I wore it to dinner already paired with jeans and my olive Rebecca Minkoff crossbody but it would look so cute tucked into cutoff shorts, as well. I purchased an xs.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to stock up on sweaters. For some, they might be "buy now, wear later" pieces but I've already been loving wearing mine with shorts for summer nights. This BP v-neck pullover is a favorite and is SO comfy and soft. I snagged it in pink but I'm also eyeing it in ivory, black and grey—it's that good! Wearing the xxs. 

I went a little crazy with my color palettes (pink, black, grey and olive) but I also couldn't resist this Free People pullover. It's the perfect loose knit and slightly slouchy fit, yet it still has a flattering shape and doesn't feel oversized. I'm wearing the xs.

The other cozy cardigan I got was this long ribbed cardigan by Halogen. It's a really great classic neutral and is so cozy. I've already worn this outfit to work (because the only time I can wear my cardigans is in the office with a/c) and I love it. It runs a little big through the back, so I would size down if possible. I'm also wearing these SP Black jeans from the sale and they're just $39.90. They're SO comfy and I love the stretch. Fit tts. 

Finally, the black jeans in the majority of these fitting room photos are these Madewell high-rise ripped skinny jeans. The fit is really effortless and easy (if that makes sense) and I love the slightly faded black. They fit tts. I also snagged these Halogen slide loafers and I'm in love. The black is super classic and they also come in tan/wheat. I'm in between sizes and went with my half size up! 

I ordered a few more things that are yet to come—see below!—and you can also check out more of my favorites and my post on how I shop the sale along with some of my favorite home decor from the sale!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

UPDATE! I know several of the items from my fitting room photos above have sold out, so I wanted to share more of my favorites that are still in stock. Most of these are items I have or tried on or are just brands I know and love. All really classic additions to your wardrobe and I feel like the majority are pieces that will never go out of style, which is really my goal when I shop the sale. I hope you guys are able to find some pieces you love! Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Decor

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Decor

I've officially been in my new apartment for five months now and I'm definitely still in the process of adding finishing touches and homey details. I tend to beeline to apparel during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but perused the Home Section and found some gems I thought I'd share with you guys, too. 

I've been in the market for a bar cart and can't believe this mirrored bar cart is part of the sale. It's such a great price at $149.90 and I'm sure much higher quality than the Target versions I've been eyeing. I also broke one of my bedside lamps during my move and have been looking to update them. These coppertone table lamps by Crystal Art Gallery are just what I've been looking for and I love the industrial/classic combination with the metal and marble. Again, such a great price at $59.90.

If I was still in the market for an area rug I'd be all over them! Personally, I love all the classic neutrals by Calvin Klein. 

A new pillow is the easiest way to update your living space and I can't resist a few new home accents

If you're not in the market for home decor, be sure to check out my top clothing picks and purchases and keep an eye out for more this Friday when the sale opens to the public!
