WhatIWore: Each season I attempt to mix a few new trends into my established wardrobe. I would have loved to play around with cut outs, lace panels and mixed textures, but as any pregnant gal knows, maternity clothes aren’t cheap, so I’ve been going with basics instead. But that doesn’t mean I can’t day dream!
I must confess to you guys: While I might be just browsing now, I’ve been saving for a big shopping spree once baby arrives!
I’ve gone to NordstromRack.com for a morning of play shopping these minimal femme looks. See my inspiration above for streamlined silhouettes in pretty shades of white and gray accented by exagerated sunglasses. With price points between $26-$80 I might even buy something in my pre-baby size (or maybe one size up?) Just like the brick and mortar stores, quantities are limited, so if you love it, don’t hesitate!
Heads Up! This post was brought to you by Nordstrom Rack, one of my favorite places to find designer pieces at a major discount (and now… online!) Thank you for supporting the brands that make What I Wore possible.
WhatIWore: Good Monday morning, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I’m still buzzing from my hat making workshop that I took last Thursday (photos and details coming later this week). Today I’m a little behind on laundry, so I resorted to a basic black dress that I’ve worn SO much during my pregnancy.
WhatIWore: We’re halfway through July and I’ll be the first to admit I’m really excited for fall clothes more than ever, especially after making three new fall hats yesterday (more on that soon!) I’m new to the Nordstrom Anniversay sale excitement, but today I looked into it and I can see why people get… excited. It’s sale prices on fall merchandise, which means it’s the perfect time to get some of the items on your autumn wishlist at a discount. The sale runs July 18 - August 3 when prices return to normal. As always, there’s free shipping and returns. Below I’ve play shopped for my favorite splurge worthy categories (boots, bags, coats and denim) and real shopped for a few things too. #treatyoself Click through to see all of my picks!
Boots: Brands like Frye and Rag and Bone are on sale, which are normally pretty pricey. Last year I bought the R+B Newbury bootie in black and wore them almost every day (below - a dark gray option). Definitely a solid investment. It’s also worth noting I bought a knockoff style from another brand and they weren’t nearly as comfortable as the real deal. I foresee myself wanting solid, chunky heeled boots instead of spikey stilettos once baby is born. Here are my favorites (I splurged on these):
Handbags:I like to invest in handbags and I like updating my collection once per season. I see myself going with a lot of warm tones this fall, so I picked out bags that have brown and cognac hues. The handbags below (from Frye, Rebecca Minkoff and Phillip Lim) are between $100-$300! I like:
