Friends, I scored a few pretty amazing buys while I was off on my summer holidays, and just could not wait to tell you about them!
Yay, reader question! Being answered in a timely fashion! I’m pretty proud of myself. Amy asked such a great question over the weekend, I had no choice but to answer straightaway:
All the leather out there reminds me of my unresolved question from last fall: how do you match leather tops/skirts to boots? Do we avoid leather boots completely? Do the boots need to match the color of the leather top/jacket/skirt? If not boots, then what kind of footwear, especially in the colder months? Thanks! ~ Amy
Amy, you’re so not the only one wondering about this. Matching leather is a hurdle it took me years to master – and finally, I realized I was worrying too much (as usual). In general, the only rules I stick to are these: Read on
| Psst…Looking for details on the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I’ve got the scoop right here. |
Happy Friday, friends! Or, perhaps more importantly, Happy-First-Day-of-the-Nordstrom-Anniversary-Sale for those of you who couldn’t shop Early Access. Now that everyone‘s getting their shop on, I thought we’d try something new this weekend. How about we chat in the comments about all of the goodies you nabbed in the sale? I’ll show you mine if you show me yours! Read on
As most of you know, while I talk a high-fashion game, my style is pretty classic at heart. As my best friend is forever mocking me for, give me a cardigan, a pair of jeans and a great ballet flat, and I’m a happy girl.
I’ve been in the market for the perfect nude ballet flat all year, but I’ve been very Goldilocks about the whole thing. Some were too pink, others too tan, some had too much embellishment, others were too plain. But strolling through the Nordstrom shoe department last week (as I’m wont to do), I came across the perfect solution. I knew it was right when the whole transaction, from spotting to trying to buying, took under five minutes.
The big winner was the Halogen Callie flat – it’s that perfect taupe-y nude hue that looks right with everything (no, really – everything!), without disappearing on your foot entirely. They’ve become my no-thought-required go-to when picking a shoe feels like too much work, as it does on so many mornings. And the patent leather is perfect for winter weather. Also, they’re under $100, which is a pretty serious steal in my shoe world. But do go up about a half size…they’re running small!
