Let’s talk about my current favorite handbag…my Diorama in Grey with light gold hardware. I so love this bag! I really wanted a Chanel Boy, but it was just too bulky, heavy and the chain was too big…. I tried on the Diorama and was instantly in LOVE ❤️😍! It is the perfect size for me with a chain strap that is light and gorgeous.
I wore it with a Halogen x Atlantic Pacific blazer (it is my Balmain dupe) in will with shine gold buttons. On my lapel, I wore my Chanel CC and Kate Spade Trellis Blooms Flower brooches. I also have a Pucci scarf with my Hermes scarf ring. In the background you can see a peek of my Tory Burch Robinson Leather Tote in Pink that I use for work.

The secret sauce of the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that it has items that can be used this summer, but also includes items for fall! The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 5 when prices will go back up to regular price. I have to say that there is so much included, you can find looks for every occasion at Nordstrom, from weekend to wedding and night out to vacation.
Here is how my ordering drama resolved itself. So the 2 orders that I made that were cancelled within the system causing me to reorder were actually filled. So, I ended up getting all but one pair of jeans, but I got many duplicated items. Again props to SA Elizabeth @ Valley Fair for watching over my situation like a guardian angel. I have a thank you email set to go out to her (hello! I have manners).
So here is what I loved and if it worked for me or not:
I loved this dress in the pictures and in person. It would have been a great option for work or a party. Sadly, it didn’t fit me properly so I had to let it go.
I love the boho/peasant style of this! With booties or sandals in warm weather and with and cozy cardigan, tights and boots when it cools down. I ordered a size XL, but the sleeves were too long so I had to order a large. I’m hoping that will work.
For those who love AG Jeans… you must look at these. I am new to the AG program – I got my first ever pair in May from Trunk Club. I was excited to get my second pair to replace some older jeans that it was past time to sell/donate. OK they are a bit more than I would normally spend on denim, but my 1st pair really performed and you can save $76 before August 6.
These Halogen camis are so comfy with great lace detail and a bit of stretch. I have worn it under a cardigan and on it’s own when outside in the heat.
Another brand I am new to is Rails. This top is the perfect shape for me at work. The white with the fun black heart detail will work with my pencil skirts and trousers.
My other favorite from Rails is this cute tee. I am loving stars lately and this v-neck has a subtle pattern and a great fit.
This is one of the 1st items that I saw that I knew I wanted. I originally wanted it in black, but it was sold out and I was able to get a grey one. I am happy with this light-weight cardigan. It has a drawstring at the waist, so you don’t have that giant sweater look, but a slim silhouette.
So I knew I had to try this sweater out because 4 of my favorite bloggers (Lux Mommy, Chase Amie, Shea Whitney & Miss Louie) said I must. Boy were they right! This is the softest sweater in the history of sweaters! I am serious! I got the blue one in size medium and it is truly cozy.
So I never thought I would like an over-the-knee boot. My problem is my wide calf action (thanks a lot Zumba) which limits my selection significantly. These fit me perfectly and I saved $80! I can’t wait for the weather to cool down!
Tory Burch Flats. CLASSIC. Enough said.
Biker Chic. You might need these.
IT’S A SKORT! Navy with a hint of Lavender. I mean… it had me at skort.
I love me a good pencil skirt. Great for work and those who know me know that I will also wear with a tee and canvas sneakers. Classic fit.
Items that I got that maybe sold out, but I hope they will restock:
- Beauty Blender blend.cleanse.carry Set
- Thermal Henley Top by SOCIALITE Large
- Women’s Halogen Ribbon Stripe Slim Jeans, Size 33 Blue
- Treasure and Bond Sporty Stripe Sweater Large Grey
So many fun items with good prices this year. Remember,2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 5 so get moving. You can get FREE shipping or pick up in store.
Hope this was helpful!
