#NSale Product Reviews

Nordstrom

Hi guys!  Happy Friday!  Since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially open to the public, I wanted to take a minute and share some of my favorite purchases from the sale with all of you, along with some honest reviews of what I think about the products I purchased.

You can also shop my GUIDE TO THE NORDSTROM SALE here.

NSale OutfitsNSale 1

STRAPPY TOP:  My favorite purchase of the sale.  It’s under $20 and comes in a bunch of other colors.  I also bought the black.  Would definitely recommend this one.  Oh, and the back has the same cute strappy detailing as the front!

BOYFRIEND JEANS: LOVE these!  I am a total jean snob and usually only buy certain brands, but I loved the cut off bottoms of these (and the price! only $65!), so I took a chance and tried them. And I am SO glad I did.  Really love these.

NSale 3

SHIRT DRESS: I am always a sucker for a good shirts dress.  And anything olive green (obviously).  So this one was a no brainer for me.  It’s a great price point and I think it is SO cute.  My only hang up is that the fabric wrinkles pretty easily.  Although it also comes in a really cute stripe print, which would probably mask the wrinkles a little better (if you’re concerned about that).

LACE UP HEELS: These aren’t technically a part of the sale, but they are still on major sale at Nordstrom right now and are pretty much the comfiest heels I own.  LOVE these and definitely recommend them! (more sizes here)

NSale 2

TWIST FRONT TOP: This is a top I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards, but I loved it when I tried it on, and for less than $25, I had to give it a try.  Comes in a couple other colors and is a great piece to add to any wardrobe.

PAIGE DENIM: I love Paige denim, and these beauties are under $100!  I love the length and find that the Verdugo style holds it shape really well and doesn’t stretch out over time.  One of my favorite denim styles.

NSale 4

VEST: my vest is older, but everyone needs the vest that is in the sale in their closet ASAP.  The price point is really affordable and this will be a workhorse piece in your closet all year round!

DRESS: This dress isn’t part of the sale, but it is a great basic, comes in a ton of colors and is less than $50.  I have it in 3 colors and wear them all the time.  Definitely recommend this item!

OPEN-TOE BOOTIES: My only shoe purchase of the sale, and I am in love!  They are super comfy and I love the cute little ankle cut out detail (see pic below for more detail). They are also super flattering and less than $100.

NSale 5

SADDLE BAG: Absolutely LOVE this bag!  It sold out really quickly the first go-around, so if you are interested, I would make sure and snatch up quickly if you want it.  I love all of the colors, but ultimately went with the black.

BOOTIES: Same as above

DENIM: Same as above

Happy Friday, sweet friends.  And happy shopping!

Back To Basics

Sometimes it’s hard to beat a basic tee back to boyfriend jeans. In fact, it’s one of my favorite go-to looks.  It’s also a super easy outfit to take from day to night- just add a fab pair of heels and some statement jewelry, and you’re off!  Easy as one, two, three!

Muah!

Red Pop

Listen up ladies, red isn’t just for the holiday season anymore!  Paired with the right color combinations (think neutrals!!), red is a color we should be wearing all. year. long.  And while I typically tend to shy away from reds during the warmer months (as I’m sure we all tend to do), paired back to nudes and light wash denim, red really is the perfect pop of color for Spring!

My BF

I love boyfriend jeans.  They are so comfy, and casual, but also look fantastic dressed up back to heels and a cute top.  In fact, I think it’s one of the spring trends that everyone should invest in.  But be forewarned, it might take some trying on to find the perfect pair that work for your body type.  In fact, it took me quite a while to find a pair that were both flattering and comfy-but they were definitely well worth the effort!

Besides boyfriend jeans, I also can’t seem to get enough these nude pumps.  They are a fantastic staple piece for any closet and go with just about anything.  So get ready, because you will probably be seeing them on the blog a lot.

Hope you are all having a good week!

Spring Fever

Boyfriend Jeans |  Stila Lip Color (Fiore and Fiery are my faves) | JCrew Sweatshirt (on sale-use code HAPPY SHOPPING for 25% off!!) | Fedora | Lace Up Heels | Oversized Sunnies | Mint Tote (obsessed!) | Gold Cuff
Happy Friday, dolls!  Thought I would leave you today with a few things that I am hoping to add to my Spring wardrobe.  And the best part?  Everything is under $100 (except the tote).  I don’t know about you all, but I think my spring fever has officially set in!

Boom Goes The Dynamite

I love this sweatshirt.  In fact, it was the only piece I ended up buying (well, keeping) from the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Target collaboration this past Fall.  I love how playful and fun it is and I especially love that current fashion has made it perfectly acceptable to wear a good old sweatshirt back to boyfriend jeans, red lipstick, and high heels.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!  If you follow me on Instagram (alldolledupblog if you don’t), then you know ours was spent enjoying the incredible Utah back country.   We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place and so blessed to be able to enjoy it to the fullest.  Now if only the weekends would last a little longer…

Happy Monday!

Boyfriend

While J and I were on vacation this past week, someone asked me if he was my boyfriend. And being that we just celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary, that kind of made me giggle. Because really, the only true boyfriend I have in my life these days, is my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans…

I cannot believe how fast our vacation went by-sometimes I wish I had a magic button I could press to slow down the time just a little.  But I will forever cherish all of the amazing memories and fun times shared with family and friends while we were in Montana.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Making Me Blush

I love the color blush. It really is the perfect neutral. And while I usually find myself preferring to rough it up a bit by pairing it back to more military inspired ensembles, sometimes I just can’t help but want to feel ultra girly and style my blush back to something sweet-maybe like a little lace peplum…

80’s Accent

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. I love neon. And despite being raised in the 80’s, I am still working on getting my neon fix. But instead of layering multiple neons together, I am loving it as an accent, especially when paired back to unexpected neutrals!

Another trend that I am loving right now is the embellished sweatshirt.  Really, how fun that we have the option to be totally and completely comfortable while still adding a touch of sparkle! 

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week.  Thanks for reading!
