Hello friends! So sorry it's been a while. The last couple of weeks have been chock full of goodness, however I just haven't had a moment to sit and write. The summer seems to go by so quickly. I am truly amazed that it is already July 20th! Really, where is the time going? I guess the upside to that is we are quickly approaching August, my birthday month and our wedding anniversary. I always look forward to this time of year. There is so much celebrating to be had. There is nothing like spending time with good friends and family on such special occasions.
Anyway, I have been gearing up for what promises to be a wonderful trip with family in September. I have been scouring the stores attempting to put together the best outfits for my trip abroad and I wanted to share some of my finds with all of you. I have gotten pretty thrifty as of late, and thought you may also want to take advantage of the same sales!
Sound the alarm ladies! Nordstrom is having their Anniversary Sale! In fact their early access to sale ends today! Nordstrom cardholders can shop eight days earlier than everyone else to save big on brand-new arrivals. But for those of us without a credit card, the sale opens to the public tomorrow, July 21st and will run through August 6th. While you are in the store you should check out these few items... I've had my eye on them. Fingers crossed I can snag them before they are all gone.
This Carmine off-the shoulder dress by Paige is super cute for the summer. As the websites says, it is "perfectly flirty by day or night." This drapey woven dress draws attention to your shoulders and your waistline with its drawstring-cinched silhouette. I have this on my "must have" list. And at $179.90 it is a steal!
And then there is this lovely top by Madison and Berkeley. It is their rib cold shoulder top in the brown buckthorn. I absolutely adore the color for summer and think it would pair nicely with jeans and sandals for a day out.
Another store running crazy good sales is JCrew. Yesterday they started 60% off of select clearance. I have admittedly been on a JCrew binge as of late. I bought an adorable italian seersucker bathing suit (photo not available-- sold out online) for $40, originally $128 and this tie back top for $27 originally $98.00 for my trip to Europe. The tie back top is sold out online but definitely check your local store! It is worth popping in! Also-- this silk red peplum is everything for summer and can be purchased for only $16! Again, sizes are dwindling online, but check your store! I am also loving this braided deep v-one-piece swimsuit in the classic stripe! And if you hurry, you'll get 40% off! I have also purchased this embellished tie shoulder top, $98 with 40% off! And if you are looking for a little vintage look, check out these Tretorn sneakers! A perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!
As if that isn't enough, Club Monaco is also having their end of year sale! As many of you know, this is my store of choice. But shopping at Club Monaco also means that on a regular day you most certainly will need deep pockets. However, when they run their sale you can rest assured that you will find a couple of good steals! Check out this crisp white blazer, originally $269 on sale for $189 with an additional 30% off! I also love this adorable adeva camisole, originally $179.50, marked down to $129 with an additional 30% off as well. I also love this cami paired with these Mother nomad cropped jeans (originally $228, marked to $159) take an additional 30% off!
And finally, if you are looking to splurge before the end of summer take a look at these beautifully made by hand sandals by Mystique. A friend recommended that I try them and I am so excited to be receiving my first pair (just in time for my birthday)! The sandals take up to three weeks to make but they are totally worth the wait. If you sign up to receive e-mail you will receive 15% off of your first purchase. Check out their website... each shoe is a work of art!
There you have it... happy shopping! I hope you are well on your way to adding a few new pieces to your fun in the sun summer wardrobe! As always I will keep you posted on new developing sales!
