Early Access Ends Today :: Jump on more Nordstrom Sale Favorites

TGIT! Early access for the Nordstrom Sale ends TODAY, y'all! I'm sharing more favorites, so jump on them because they certainly won't last long after the sale opens to everyone. Once again I'm wishing summer away and ready to pull on my boots scarves, leggings and more for fall. I probably shouldn't be so hasty as it's only mid-July {wahh!} Okay, enough chit chat. Here we go...


Here are a few snaps of me wearing some of these faves and others from my first N Sale Favorites post

cuffing your jeans

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I'm taking a quick break from puppy fever -- have you SEEN our new baby?! Okay, I'll show you...photo 1 photo 2...now that you have your puppy fix, let's talk about cuffing your jeans. It's an easy way to amp up the versatility of your jeans and give yourself a new look. Cuffing also allows you to make your jeans the correct length if they're too long, and make them a little more casual if you're going for that look.-150{Paige skyline skinny, Tory Burch wedge - on sale!}

Typically I like to do one cuff - about 2-3 inches wide so that your jeans hit at your ankle bone. But, cuffing is totally up to your taste. You can roll them twice, or just do one small cuff. Just make sure your jeans are hitting right around your ankle bone and not much higher.

Until tomorrow, stay stylish!

the shirtdress

Courtney summer-7-2Happy Wednesday! Today I'm bringing you a style staple that can go year-round :: the shirtdress. This casually chic and effortless look is perfect for throwing on in a jiffy while also looking polished put-together. I'm particularly loving this chambray stripe shirtdress from Loft right now. It's so Nantucket-esque, which just so happens to be my favorite place on Earth. So it's only fitting that I snatched it up!

Courtney summer-22-2The shirtdress is great by itself, but belt it around the small of your waist if you want to draw it in a bit; especially if your shirtdress is a bit more billowy.

LOFT Striped Chambray Shirtdress

Chambray is the perfect neutral color, especially for the summer and fall. The nautical stripe adds that little extra something.

the perfect year-round pant

Happy Tuesday! I apologize for the delay in blogging. Monday is always such a catch-up day that sometimes, it gets away from me! Needless to say, I'm back and ready to bring you some inspiration for the perfect year-round pant! There are so many "rules" when it comes to pants :: you can't wear white jeans in the winter, a dark wash in the summer feels to dark and winter-y, etc. Today I'm going to talk about a shade that falls perfectly into every season - Olive Green. It's a neutral, yet lighter than a dark wash denim and darker than a white jean! It goes with everything and gives your look a bit of edge. My favorites are by far these Slim Illusion Ankle Skinnys by 7 For All Mankind in Olive Green.
