Hello Hello! A little workwear for this Wednesday. While I think this dress could work for a variety of events from shower guest to church to dinner with the gals, I think it shines as a work dress option for summer. As many of you are transitioning back into work clothes, a loose fitting shift dress is a great option to ease you out of your at home loungewear into office wear.
This dress has really fun and feminine details like flutter sleeves and a tiered ruffle skirt design to add some texture to the dress. I love all the different colors in the floral print. It kind of reminds me of a painting. You could easily toss on a colorful sandal, but I love pairing this with a nude color shoe to really help the print stand out. The v-neck design is perfect for pairing with a layered necklace. I do think it runs a little big. I’m wearing an XS in this dress, but could have worn a size smaller too since it’s loose fitting.

Alright y’all, all Nordy Club Tiers can now shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The last tier opened this morning. Public Access for the sale will start July 28th. As I previously mentioned, my coverage is a little different this year. I have a vacation right in the middle of the sale, so I’m not sure if I will receive my goodies in time for a normal try on post. Hopefully I can get one up before the sale ends though and hopefully the items will still be in stock by then.
I scoped the sale out online and pulled some of my top picks in the categories ya’ll love every year – SHOES, jeans, tops, dresses, and handbags. I was also loving the beauty section this year, so stay tuned for that post coming soon!
What’s on My Wish List?
Attention Nordstrom Shoppers, we have officially started tier 2 Anniversary access today! If you are looking for some help navigating the sale, you can find all of my picks on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale page and curated collages and outfit shares on my LTK Page. I’m working on getting a blog post up for you guys on Friday pending I don’t get busy with wedding tasks.
But before we start shopping for fall, let’s talk about this cute little red apron mini dress. The style of the dress is similar to overalls. It’s completely open in the back with straps that button at the top of the skirt. From the front it reminds me of an apron which is why I call it my apron dress. This fun and flirty red dress is probably one of my summer favorites so far. I’ve worn it around the house with a bandeau bra and lace bralette which does show a little bit more skin. A few weeks ago I wore it over a fitted white tshirt, but my favorite way to style this dress is with a fitted tank top.
It really let’s the smock detailing and print on this dress shine to keep the top simple. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to pair this small floral print with my white butterfly earrings. I think the white of the earrings helps pull out the lighter colors in the print of the dress.

Hello Hello and Happy Monday!! I’m so excited to finally have some summer outfits to share with you! The rain here has been crazy and made it so hard to get outfit photos. Earlier last week, I put my foot down and told Steve that we were going to just do the photos indoors that night. Sure enough the rain stopped that morning, and we finally got our shoot in! This means I have lots of fun new summer outfits coming in the next few weeks. AND since it’s July, it also means it’s time for Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Top tier cardholders start shopping today! Are you shopping the sale this year??
I’m planning to place my order later this week when my tier opens up. My coverage will be a bit different this year because right in the middle of the sale I am going on my first vacation in TWO years. I plan to take some time to relax and enjoy it, so I won’t be able to put all of my normal content together. BUT I still want to help you shop the sale where you need it. So let me know in the comments what style boards you would like to see this year whether it is a specific item or style like casual or workwear. I’m here for you.
Now let’s talk about this fun summer outfit! I wore this out July 4th weekend to a Friday happy hour with friends. We sat outside, and it is a heat approved outfit! I love the pink and white combo, it has such a stylish and chic vibe. The bows on the sleeves are my favorite part! Such a fun statement factor! This top is a thick knit and fitted. It also comes in 3 other colors if pink is not your favorite. I’m wearing a size small.
I love all the white bottoms for summer, so a white jean skirt was only a matter of time for me. This one has a high waisted fit, so I sized up one. It’s a good length and has just a bit of distressing which helps dress down fancier tops like my pink bow tie tank top. I tossed on some slide sandals and my go to stone bangles to complete this happy hour or brunch ready look.
