THE CANVAS - 

Sweater : 360 Cashmere (loving this version) ~ Pants : Old Navy (old, similar) ~ Booties : Aldo (old, similar) ~
Scarf : Street Cart in New York (real version) ~ Purse : Louis Vuitton ~ Sunlgasess : Forever21 ~
Watch : Marc Jacobs ~ Ring : David Yurman ~ Bracelets : David Yurman / Hermes / Madewell

A few weeks ago, I had felt like summer was slipping away. We had terrible thunder/rain storms and the temperatures were dropping. While this may be good for some, I am one of those people that LOVE summer and the dry heat in Utah!

Well, fast forward three weeks and we are back up to 100 degree plus weather and I have become a sun goddess for now. But for any of you that may be experiencing some colder fronts this summer, here was an outfit I wore to mix both warm and cold temperatures.

(One trick, was that I decided to pair this layered ensemble with a peep toe bootie, to give it a more summery vibe!)

How do you dress for those chilly summer nights?

Nordstrom – Anniversary Sale!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

THE CANVAS - 

1. Halogen Leather Jacket / 2. Sam Edelman Shoes / 3. Trouve Colorblock Sweater /
4. Halogen Leather Pencil Skirt / 5. Rebecca Minkoff Tote / 6. Michael Kors Bootie

So I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year!

But I am not going to lie, it gets me so excited for my fall wardrobe, that I find myself trying to justify wearing leather and sweater in 100 degree July heat lol. Well this year is nothing different!

As you can see from my favorite selections, I am definitely shifting towards tons of leather and “berry” hues. Swoon! Even though I tend to stick to the brights, you will definitely be seeing me in this very fall inspired color palette in the next few months.

But until then, I’ll store some of these puppies until the weather chills down a bit…how crazy am I that I am actually wanting summer to be over just to wear some of these haha.

Reminder that today is the LAST day of the Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so if you are a Nordstrom card holder, make sure to grab a few pieces before they go on sale to the public, because I know a bunch of my favorites will be flying off the shelf!

I was lucky enough to team up with the fabulous Paige from Paige Arminta!! We decided to do a black and white them, and take photos downtown by the beautiful temple gardens. The flowers were the perfect pop of color in the background.

Gold Coast Girl / Lady Diana’s Pearls

Diptic

Today’s trend is TULLE!

This probably has to be the most excited I have been for a theme! I seriously wanted to be a Disney Princess growing up, and always imagined wearing a big tulle skirt everyday. And now it seems with this growing trend, I can really make it happen lol.

I must also let you know of my absolute favorite place to get Tulle skirts, and that would be Space 46 Boutique! Literally she has EVERY color and TONS of different links. I sometimes think her floorlength white tulle skirt would be perfect for a wedding dress. SWOON!

Next week’s trend is BOWS!

Whether you style them on your dresses, in your hair, or on your tows, I can’t wait to see all the ways you are wearing this popular and very girly trend!
