It's WAY too hot to even think of taking pictures of these looks outdoors, so I opted for a good ol' mirror selfie post. These are my fall and winter purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I thought I would style them in easy to recreate outfits so you can see how they fit when worn in a full look. 

The sale goes live to everyone tomorrow morning at 12am PST (3 am EST) so I am crossing my fingers that some of these pieces get restocked for anyone that missed out! To read all of my previous #nsale posts, click here.

An Easy Summer Outfit To Wear Into Fall with Some #Nsale Pieces

 Top - J.Crew | Jacket - Madewell (size down, I'm wearing an XS) | Jeans - Topshop (lots of stretch but size up, I am wearing a 28x30) | Shoes - Treasure & Bond | Sunglasses - Le Specs | Bag - Sophie Hulme (old but similar here and here) | Watch - Timex

Hello, denim spanx! These jeans are not actually denim spanx but that is what I have been calling them since they slim and hold everything in. They are cropped, high waisted with a cute hi/lo hem - basically my perfect pair of jeans. And they are marked down for the sale to $50 which is just icing on the cake. For me I went with up a size because Topshop always runs small for me. 

The jacket was an instant hit for me because I can wear it 3 seasons out of the year - spring, summer and fall (even into winter if it's a mild day). Dresses, skirts, shorts, jeans - almost anything I pair with it works with the exception of something super fancy. This is the type of jacket that will stay in my closet for years to come but still look current. I enjoy grabbing trendy pieces here and there, but a good fitting military jacket is something that will always give me my money's worth. 

Be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow though, because I styled all of my Nordstrom purchases more suitable for fall and winter if you need ideas of how to wear certain pieces. To browse through all my past posts for the sale, click here.

Urban Decay Born To Run Collection: Review + Swatches

Sometimes I feel like I can't keep up with all of Urban Decay's launches, they are always bringing something new and exciting to the stores! The newest collection is called Born to Run and for those that love a good eye shadow palette, this has 18 shades with a mix of matte and shimmer formulas. Sometimes Urban Decay palettes can be easy to wear with lots of neutrals, and then some of their palettes have too many "wild card" colors as I like to call them. This has a bit of both, but skews more heavy on the wearable daytime shades. Besides the very first color in the palette called Breakaway, every single shade is richly pigmented and took me little to no work to build up the color to full intensity. Not too powdery and the balance of shimmer to matte finishes is perfect. Below are swatches of the entire palette.

Swatches: Ready Lipstick, Marfa Lipstick, Born to Run Vice Lipstick, Double Life pencil, Lucky Pencil and Overdrive pencil
In addition to the swatches of the eye shadow palette, I included swatches of the lipsticks and eye liners that are part of this collection. The lipsticks didn't wow me that much, but there are two BEAUTIFUL brown liners from this collection that are perfect for an every day look. I personally don't wear eyeliner but I know many of you do and want something dark enough to define but subtle enough for a daytime look. These two are perfect for that. The green is a wild card and while beautiful, not very practical. The liners are creamy and glide on easily but last a veryyyyyy long time. In fact, trying to remove them off my arm took a wipe, cleansing oil and some micellar water. Definitely a great buy for summer!

The Best Home Finds From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always a go-to for new fall clothing and exclusive beauty sets, but the home section is not to be missed!! Here are a handful of things that are worth a look.

1. Cable knit throws - It's like the cutest cable knit sweater made into a throw! 

2. SMEG electric kettle - This has to be your taste, but I personally love the old fashioned look of the SMEG products. 

3. Throw pillow - Throw pillows are the accessories of your couch, amiright?!! This pillow is a statement accessory.

4. Serving board - I know these serving boards are great for hosting, but if you ask me I like to use them regularly just to feel fancy. Why the heck not?! Make yourself a little charcuterie board for sitting in bed watching netflix. 

5. Agave planter - Nothing spruces up a room like adding some greenery.

6. Stemless wine glass - These are cute for a summer get together or to (again) feel fancy when drinking your smoothies. Ha!

7. Voluspa candles - I love the packaging on Voluspa candles and this set is great to put in all the rooms in your home. 

8. Marble print waste basket - If it's marble print, I want it. 

9. Braided pouf - I love poufs as extra seating, accessories in a room, under a hallway table - there are so many uses for a cute one like this.

10. Docking station - I've seen this in person and it's adorable!! Charge your phone in a much chicer way. 

11. Diffuser - A diffuser that doesn't look too obvious - love!

Friday Finds - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Edition

Jacket (size down, wearing an XS) | Jeans (size down, wearing a 28 but exchanging for a 26) | Tank | Shoes | Bag | Cell phone case
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale has started with early access opening yesterday to card holders. I really do love this sale but as in years past, I hunt and peck through the offerings to find the pieces that speak to me. There are some major winners each year, but also a ton of duds that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. #dramatic But since I only pick out the things that work for me, my lifestyle and my budget (I can't buy everything - ha!), there still is a bunch of items that are worth checking out. I spent a good amount of time going through all the offerings yesterday and grouping my picks together in categories. Here are (what I consider) some of the best pieces from the entire sale:

Boots not to miss:


Coats that I love:
