These pants, in every color. That’s what I want this week. I purchased these in black (size 6) during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They’re still on sale and will be on sale until August 4th.
I wear dress pants four days a week for work. I’ve tried several brands and Banana Republic has always been my go to retailer for business casual pants. Until this week. These pants from Nordstrom feel like sweatpants, I don’t know how else to describe them. They’re so soft! That’s by far my favorite part.
If Nordstrom is sold out of the size or color you desire, be sure to check here or here.
Most of the items on my wish list have yet to be purchased because they're outrageously overpriced. My key to moving these items from the wish list to the closet is persistence. I will watch for these items to go on sale for months. Sometimes it takes up to half a year before they're finally marked down. In the mean time there is usually some sort of deal on full priced items for that particular retailer.
This black sweater with the leopard print trim is what I'm currently coveting. I've sent a screen shot of this sweater to my Mom and one of my best friends. Now if I could only get Santa's number so I could text it to him...
Hope ya'll are having a good week! Be sure to check out The Insider's Guide for all new items.
I wore this outfit to dinner Saturday night. A dark dress with silver bow sandals, a baby blue cross body, and turquoise studs. The mirror shot was sent to a friend of mine for approval : )
You can use similar items you already have in your closet to recreate this look, or click on any of the pictures above to shop each item individually.
We took these photos when my Mom was in town a few weeks ago. She usually makes an appearance in Dallas about twice a year. This city is always so much better when she’s here. (Love ya Mom!)
Both my blazer and pants are on sale right now. I could have played it safe and paired it with jeans and a white t-shirt, but what’s the fun in that? Why not go with green and choose your most obnoxious hat!
Hope you’re having a fun summer!
I just realized that I don’t have a black dress. While searching for one online, I came across this silk number. It’s top rated and comes in 7 different colors. Lucky for me, 1 of the 7 colors is black.
When I get a spray tan my face is always the first thing that goes back to bright white. It’s a problem. I’m not sure if it’s the face soap I use or my makeup remover but after just a day or two my face is back to its natural color. It looks funny when your whole body is bronze but your face is five shades lighter.
I found these tanning wipes online and figured it was worth a shot. I use one every night before I go to bed and opt out of getting my face spray tanned. Even if you don’t get spray tans it’s nice to have at least a little color on your face in the summer.
Spray tans or store bought products, either one is better than being out in the sun!
Well hey there! I hope you’re having a fun summer. I took a nice long break from all things work. It’s nice to step away from time to time and recharge. I hope you’re able to do the same.
I’ll be back to my normal 3 blog posts per week soon. Just wanted to give you an update so you aren’t worried.
Cant wait to see some of you this Saturday in Austin!
