Nordstrom half-yearly

Nordstrom half yearly
Today is the first full day of the Nordstrom half-yearly sale with savings of up to 40% off of some of our favorites. Here are the details on my wishes, wants, and needs…
 //
*These Steve Madden heels are the perfect staple for everything from a summer wedding to a casual night out with jeans and a t-shirt
*How adorable is this two piece set by Whitney Eve? With both pieces 40% off, the outfit is barely over $100!
*I mentioned this Joie dress last week in my wedding wardrobe post and it’s now 40% off! This and this are also great wedding season dresses!
*Julia styled this jacket to perfection – a great transition piece from work to play
*I know it’s still a splurge, but I’ve been eyeing this Alexander Wang bag for over a year!
*And anything and everything Zella, Nordstrom’s line of athletic wear, is on my list – especially these fun leggings
What’s on your list?

You guys, I’m feeling crazy and I’m wearing a crop top.  Yes, I’m taking the plunge, but Taylor Swift and I are still not ready to commit to the full-fledged belly button exposure.  Pairing it with a skirt shows a hint of skin, but still covers enough that it feels appropriate, ya feel me? After last week’s post about Zara’s spring look book this fun print and ruffle detailing was too adorable to pass up.

working girl // desk to dinner

 As I shop for spring, I’m aiming to make more intentional purchases, making sure a piece works for the office and every day.  This weekend I found a fun textured skirt and layering my go-to black cardigan over it is great for work and easily transitions to the fun night ahead.  If I’m out of the office before the sunsets, it’s straight to happy hour or dinner with friends – just a quick change of shoes, a pop of pattern, and I’m out the door. It’s {finally} my favorite time of year in Chicago and the rooftops are calling my name!
