Nordstrom Sale Picks

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6

For those of you who've been living under a sartorial rock, Nordstrom's huge annual sale has been well underway for Nordstrom cardholders, but today marks the first day of the sale opening to the public. I already picked up this tunic and this tote, which I've had my eye on for months. In my opinion, the tote was already something that looked much more expensive than the price suggests, but at $31 now I think it's one of the best deals in the entire sale. I tend to drag my personal laptop to work all the time because it's my security blanket, and I needed a more grownup bag that it could fit in.

The 'Melissa Tab' Frye boots, similar to the Melissa Button boots that I got last year, will probably not go on sale like this again anytime soon. If you think you're going to want a pair this fall, I suggest you jump on them now because Frye boots almost never go on sale, especially in their most popular styles. It's weird to think about fall when it's sweltering outside, but it always surprises me how quickly summer goes by.

I love love love this ring that's also on sale for a steal. I would get it for myself if I didn't already have two gold Gorjana rings that I wear as a stack daily. Hey, you can't have everything. I'm also considering this little leopard number, which I think is one of those pieces that could "take you anywhere" as my mama says. 

What are you picking up at the NSALE?

Too Hot (Pink) to Handle

Dress: Atina Cristina (similar here) // Clutch (also love this one for half the price) // Sunnies (only $12!) // Heels: Vince Camuto, old (similar here) // Lips: Saint Laurent in No. 27 
Tassel bracelets and necklaces were all purchased wholesale, but I love this tassel necklace, which also comes in pink, and this one for a little more of a splurge. Also obsessed with this bracelet stack

As you can see, I've been saving these photos from our Dominican Republic trip for a while. This will most likely have to be my last blog post for a few weeks, just until after the bar exam. Sad, I know. Outfit ideas are constantly running through my head that never come to fruition because I haven't been getting very dressed up lately, and when I do there's no time to take and especially edit photos. This whole summer has been a little bit of a blur for me, but I'm almost to the finish line. Hopefully I'll never have to do it again. 

I've linked a bunch of similar products below, including a few more dresses like the one pictured that I think would be a fantastic look to stand out at a late summer wedding. I actually have two to attend in August after I'm free.

I bought my clutch for much cheaper than the one available online because I was able to buy it in the Atlanta Apparel Mart, but I love hard case clutches for any special occasion or even for a dinner date. I think they're a pretty good place to make an investment if you're an accessory girl like me. I own several and always get asked where they're from. The Duchess herself, also a big fan of this style clutch, just carried this one at Wimbledon so I think they're probably due for another big moment.
