It’s HERE! And by here, I mean the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that is officially and finally open to everyone! But you knew that already, didn’t ya?
I’ve been hinting at the goodies I fell in love with from the Early Access sale, and finally decided to pull them all together in celebration of this momentous day. It’s a tad bit fall (ok more than a tad… photographing this outfit was similar to sitting in a sauna but who’s complaining?) but that actually just gets me more exciting for frosty months ahead! My sweater, purse and boots are all a part of the sale, and if you’re still hungry for more I’ve got a guide and video pointing you to other must-haves. But now, an ode to the three items featured today…
First off, I’m set to go this fall with these these suede over the knee boots. Trust me, I was the last person to ever think I could pull off a pair! But somehow the perfect heel height and color combined to add a few non-awkward-looking inches to my petite frame. Holla. Atcha. Girl. Cause I’m in love with ’em. (Last night, @emilyp5 tweeted me to let me know she’d purchased them as well with the hashtag #shortgirltallboots. This is now officially a thing.)
Y’all. The easy “carry with everything” cross body is perfected in this Rebecca Minkoff oxblood beauty. After bringing it home, I realized I’ll be able to wear it almost as a neutral! It’s a gorgeous color that adds a subtle statement to any outfit. Oxblood not your thing? It comes in 5 colors. On trend – check. Easy – check. On SALE?! Check check check.
Finally, I am in love love love with this easy sweater. My favorite thing about it is that I can start wearing it now! Since it’s short sleeved and so light, it’s perfect for cool evenings, chilly movie theaters,
the frozen goods section while I decide on an ice cream flavor or six, and then all through a mild Dallas fall as well. And it’s $40. Looks so much more expensive right?!
There ya have it folks, my ultimate favorites! I’d love to hear what you scored from the sale, too! I’ve probably said this a million times (sorry to make your ears bleed) but the sale usually sells out SO quick, so I’d jump on it sooner rather than later!
And in the midst of a full two weeks of sale talk, I just want to throw in the obvious fact (but sometimes not so obvious in this culture) that clothes – material things, really – don’t ultimately make you happy. They are fun to have fun with, but there’s just a whole heck of a lot more to life. Sounds so simple and obvious, but I know I need a reminder of that more than I’d like to admit. I want you all to know that I so desire for this blog to be a fun destination of light-hearted inspiration, but never another “you need this to be complete” voice in your head. And I want to truly ask for your forgiveness if it’s ever come across that way. I just started memorizing Psalm 16 so I can always have truth of what’s important right at the front of my mind, especially when I need to fight voices in my head that tell me otherwise. It’s a beautiful, fairly short chapter, and I would love for you to join me so we can do it together! (I need to be held accountable!)
Love from Texas,
