All About Those Shoes

I have been wanting these shoes for a long time, but was a little unsure about the price tag.  So after adding them to my Nordie’s shopping bag about 50 times over the last couple of months, I finally decided to go for it.  And you know what?  I am SO glad that I did.  Not only are they super comfortable but they go with WAY more than I thought they would.

In fact, I wore them while I was in Seattle this week for meetings and literally had co-workers and people on the street stopping me to ask where they were from!  Plus, since they are a perfect mix between a bootie and shoe, they are a great transitional piece for Fall!

Romper Style

So now that I’ve decided I can wear the off-the-shoulder trend (see this post where I talk about how I didn’t think it would work for my body type), I can’t seem to get enough of it.  Ha!  Isn’t that the way that it always goes.  But I have to say that for me lately, it doesn’t get much better than an off-the-shoulder romper.  My husband and I love to bike in the summer and often ride our tandem road bike to dinner or drinks and apps, so I am always looking for cute outfits that are appropriate for bike riding AND date night (which is much harder than you would think!).  But I have found that rompers, above all else, always seem to fit the bill.  Especially when they cost less than $20!!

White Out

I have been really loving white this summer.  And you know what else I have been loving?  SheIn (formerly Sheinside)!  They have the cutest clothes for really amazing prices.  And I have been impressed with the quality of all of the items I have ordered as well-especially this top.  It is fully lined and the fabric is gorgeous-not to mention the fact that it looks WAY more expensive than it is.  Would you believe me if I told you it was under $20??? Plus, if you spend over $49 with SheIn right now, you can get 35% off your order with code: sas35 at checkout.  How’s that for a Monday pick me up?

Also, how cute would this outfit be for the 4th of July?  The red and white combo is perfect for your festive occasion! And if it’s set to be hot where you are, you can always change out the denim for shorts, and the pumps for wedges!  Easy as one, two, three!

Flower Power

I am fairly short, at just 5’3″, but I have long legs and a short torso, so shopping in the petites department doesn’t typically work for me.  I normally just buy regular sizing, and if I ever run into a pant inseam that is a little too long, I just take them to my (amazing!) tailor here in the SLC.  So when I spotted this cute peplum jacket a couple of months ago at Macy’s, and the XS was too big for me, I was initially at a loss.  But when I noticed it also came in petite, I decided to give it shot.  And guess what?  It worked perfectly!  It was a great reminder for me that if I ever have trouble with regular sizing, that petites can be a great alternative.  So if you are on the short side like me, don’t forget about the petite department!

Happy hump day, sweet friends!  Hope you are all having a fabulous week!

 

Pleats

I am loving the pleated trend this season.  And of course navy.  I don’t know what it is about navy dresses, but I am always drawn to them.  So when I spotted this navy pleated number at BCBG, I knew it was a great summer dress-perfect for a plethora of different occasions, and an easy piece to style a lot of different ways.  And those are the best types of items to add to your wardrobe-the ones that give you lots of options…

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Tailor Made

As I’ve gotten older, I have learned the importance of a good tailor.  And that just because something doesn’t fit you off the rack, doesn’t mean that it can’t still work for you.  And the dress in today’s post is the perfect example.  My mom and I stumbled on this gem at Anthropologie when my parents were in town a couple of weekends ago.  It was originally $228 and we found it on the sale rack marked down to $48 (um, WOW!).  It was the gorgeous fabric that initially drew me to it, but the original length was tea length and it just swallowed me up and was really unflattering.  But neither of us could get over the fabric (you should see it in person!) so we hatched a plan to have it shortened and I took it to my tailor (who also couldn’t get over the fabric), and he shortened it for me for a mere $20.  And I have to say, I think it is one of my very favorite dresses in my closet right now.  I guess it goes to show that it can be worth it to think outside of the box a little bit.  So if you don’t have a tailor, I would definitely suggest finding a good one in your neighborhood-you just never know when they might come in handy!

Dressy

Two of my favorite things?  A comfy knit dress, and this gorgeous white barn up in Park City!!!  I have been consciously trying to incorporate long sleeve casual dresses into my wardrobe this year.  Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but they are great for so many different occasions-especially when you want to be a little dressed up without being overdone.  They are a great alternative to jeans, and of course pair perfectly back to your favorite denim jacket!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to shop my favorites below…

Neon

I love a good pop of neon.  And these floral shoes?  I can’t stop wearing them.  They are so fun and perfect for Spring-they might just very well be my favorite thing on repeat in my closet as of late.  But then again, I seem to be loving anything in a floral this season!!!
