Assuming you’ve heard but my Everygirl cofounder and dear friend Danielle Moss is getting married in Paris this fall! It’s a super small wedding and I am so honored Dan and I get to partake in celebrating Danielle and her fiancé Conor (who I happened to know since middle school–Chicago is a crazy small city in that sense). It also happens to be my 32nd birthday AND me and Dan’s first wedding anniversary while we’re there… so it’s a big week in Paris this October!
The shoes arrived! No idea why it took them so much longer than the clothing… but here they are! Love them all. Going to be tough to decide what to keep (all of hem?!) and what to return (since I’m not a hoarder)…
NUDE SUEDE MULES (also shown above)
It’s official. I’m a mule addict. Finally added this suede taupey beauty to the mix. I’ve never met a mule I didn’t like – and they’re SO easy and stylish. (available in more colors) // Pair with these black jeans and this tie front top.
In case you missed my insta story series from Friday night, here are pics of the goodies I bought that I arrived from the Nordstrom sale!
I’m wearing a size Medium in everything and I’m 5’6″ since some of you asked.
Also I’m wearing these tassel mules in every photo…
As of 12am PST, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone! So if you didn’t have luck finding a coworker or aunt with a Nordstrom card to grant you early access, now is the time!
Here are 15 of the top clicked items that aren’t sold out yet – most have all sizes available and a lot are under $100! Happy shopping!
I know I know. All anyone is posting about is #OMGTHENORDSTROMANNIVERSARYSALE!
I wasn’t going to do anything because it seemed everyone had that taken care of. But after getting a few requests including the text from my sister “please send me the list of everything you’re buying!” I figured what the hey. Let’s put something cool together.
I’ve always worn a lot of black and white… it’s classic and easy and everything pairs with everything. I’ve also placed a lot of black and white around our home–art, bedding, dining chairs…the stripe pillows on our bed that ya’ll love so much (as do I!). Speaking of the striped pillows, they are my most favorite pattern: the bateau stripe, or French stripe. It’s thin black stripes interspersed with white spacing and I just don’t see it enough in home decor, but it’s a staple in the fashion world. I own several shirts in this classic pattern. We even included it in our Fashion Essentials for The Everygirl Handbook.
And I’m not sure about you, but I’ve sometimes struggled with wearing black in the summer… it almost seems too heavy or dark for the hot temps. People tend to favor navy, myself included. But this combo of black paired with white in light fabrics and slinky silhouettes makes it accessible even in warm summer months.
1. plunge swimsuit (best seller!) – ya’ll loved this
2. silk scarf – in your hair or tie it around your neck or bag
3. black white striped shirt – where it year-round, all day, er day
4. white wayfarer sunglasses – classic style in a color that pops against tanned skin
5. black crossover sandal – the perfect shoe for long days and lots of walking
6. white toothpick jeans – a summer staple
7. tassel earrings – on trend and always cute
8. stripe pillow indoor/outdoor – I have these on our outdoor sofa but they work inside too
9. silk cami – dressing up was never so easy
10. white panama hat – up your beach style 100x with this single accessory
11. black crossbody with tassel – I have the blush, use it every day, debating getting the black
12. white sandal – Instagram’s It Shoe
13. striped espadrilles – like a slipper you can wear outside and really cute
What are you go to colors for summer? Does it change season to season?

Not sure about you, but I am a creature of habit. I usually buy a few new things each season and wear them on repeat to everything, not really caring if anyone notices. I’ve affectionately dubbed this my uniform in previous posts.
In my 31 years I’ve also gotten much better about avoiding the random fun trendy pieces that get 0-2 wears and spend the rest of their time in the shadows of my closet. I’ve also gotten better at knowing what works on my body type. Off-the-shoulder trend is a no go for me. Any kind of boxy top or dress, also not going to work. This means most of my purchases are basics in neutral colors that fit well.
I’ve already gotten more than my money’s worth out of each of the below purchases… I highly recommend all of them!
Throw this on with any of the bottoms below and you’ll instantly feel like you tried.
My other favorite trend right now – second only to the beautiful color ecru – is the blush craze that’s taken over every brand’s spring collections. So feminine and light and gorgeous! I’ve picked up a watch strap, striped blouse, sandals, go-to purse and earrings in the dusty color.
I feel like there are two types of Americans… the ones who get REALLY excited and go all out stars and stripes and parades and fireworks and boating for the 4th of July. And those that don’t.
I’ve more or less tried to be the former, although when the day comes I’m usually scrambling to find a festive getup… probably because I don’t own anything red. Anyone else in the same boat?
I’ve got a fever. And the only cure is more ecru.
Actually, this muted, neutral color goes by a lot of names: ecru, bone, nude, natural, sand, stone… but call it what you want. It’s the loveliest.
