Floral Pants

Hello, everyone!

Outfit posts are back! I ran out of outfit pics last week but took a batch on Monday, so I should be back on my regular posting schedule. Yay!

I bought these pants last year and recently found them with some other spring and summer clothes that I hadn’t pulled out yet. I love the big floral print, and pairing them with this long, comfy button-up shirt (one of my favorites … I wear it all the time) keeps the look feeling a little laid back. Oh, and they look great with these perforated pumps that I just bought. So fabulous!

You could also wear these pants with a basic t-shirt and flats (or maybe even sneakers) for a more casual look, but I’ve also worn them with a cobalt blue shirt and a white blazer for a more polished workwear option. They’d also be cute with a peplum top if that’s more your style.

My Current Obsession: Retro Dresses

Hello, everyone!

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of things with a retro flair. I love the cat eye makeup look, I’m obsessed with mid-century modern furniture, and my wedding definitely had a vintage vibe. As I was browsing Boden’s website last week, I came across the Betty Ottoman dress and have been dreaming about it ever since. The retro roll neck is such a fun detail and looks like it’s straight out of an episode of Mad Men. I am so bummed that the red one is gone in my size, but I’m thinking about grabbing the navy one.

I’ve included a few other retro-inspired dresses below. If you’re on the lookout for something like the dresses I’ve picked here, check out Modcloth and Boden for more fun options.

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Hello, everyone!

I typically do an outfit post at the end of the week, but I wanted to do a post on Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale while it’s still early. I love Nordstrom, not only because they have so many great items, but also because of their great customer service and free standard shipping. What’s not to love?

See some of my picks for the half yearly sale below, but be sure to check out shop.nordstrom.com for so many more options. I know I’ll be adding a few things to my closet this weekend! (Like the black heeled sandals below … I mean seriously … how fabulous are those?!!?!)

My apologies if something I’ve listed below is out of stock. As of the time I publish this post, at least some sizes are available in everything I’ve listed.
