TOP 7 Shoes from the Nordstrom SALE


SHOP THE POST





Happy Tuesday Shoes Day! I wanted to share a quick post on sizing and fit on my favorite shoes that I've purchased from the Nordstrom SALE that will sell out before public access which is on Friday, July 21st. I've also ordered two over the knee boots that I'm still waiting in the mail but have tried them on at the store and now regret that I didn't get them then. Don't have buyer's remorse like me, especially since the prices go up after August 6th. The hot ticket items are usually not restocked so if you think you like them or thinking of them you should just get them now and you can always return later if you don't like them. It's hard to find them in your size once public access begin. Let's get started with my favorites in no particular order because honestly I love them all. Make sure to check back frequently on the blog, I will be doing an updated blog post on all my favorite items that I've purchased from the sale and some try-ons that I haven't shared yet since most of the items that I have purchased are already out of stock. The good news is Nordstrom usually restocks in the morning so make sure to check back frequently if an item is sold out in your size. 

1.VINCE CAMUTO KARINTA BLOCK HEEL BOOTIE
These shoes are one of my favorite purchases and very versatile to wear NOW & into fall. I love that you can pair them with dresses, skirts, shorts and jeans. The detail of the booties are also very boho chic and very unique. Peep toe booties will definitely be trending this fall and this such a great price point and most importantly they are super comfy because of the block heel. A definite fall staple. They fit true to size and I'm wearing a size 8 1/2 for reference.

SALE PRICE: $99.90 REGULAR PRICE: $149.95

2. CORBIN GENUINE CALF HAIR SLIDE LOAFER
Can I say these leopard print loafers were love at first sight? If you've been following me for awhile, you know I love a good leopard print. These loafers are so comfy and chic. I love that you can slip them on and off and still look so put together. I plan on wearing them all fall with jeans and leggings and been wearing them with shorts. Leopard print is definitely the new neutral and these loafers are dressy enough for you to wear to work or even a date night look to the movies paired with your favorite denim and sweater. You can see how I styled them in this post here. They run true to size and I'm wearing a size 8 1/2.

If you are looking for some fun and neutral heels to wear now and for the fall, I found the perfect one for you by Dolce Vita. These heels also come in black and are gorgeous.

These slides will be everywhere for fall. The best part is they come in three gorgeous colors. The other colors in comes in are red & black. I chose the gray one since it is such a versatile color and I'm leaning more toward gray pieces in case you haven't noticed. Gray will definitely be one of the "it" colors for fall.

These are my first FlyKnit Nikes and can I say that I am obsessed with the color and print. They are so comfy and I wore them to the gym the other day and I got so many compliments. These comes in four different colors and run small. I normally go up a size in tennis shoes and got these in a size 9. They are currently sold out in pink, but make sure to check back for restock especially in the morning. Get these while you can because these will definitely sell out.

7. ADIDAS TUBULAR VIRAL 
These are the cutest sneakers from Adidas and off course I had to get them because they are in pink.

They run true to size. Since the 9 was not available, I got these in a size 8 1/2 and hoping to make them work since they are currently sold out.

Finding the Perfect Hat for Del Mar Opening Day


Happy Sunday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. It's been such a busy week here. I feel like this month is flying by and I can't believe Opening Day is next Wednesday. If you live in San Diego, you know that it is one of the biggest party of the summer. Opening day is the first day of the Del Mar Horse Races and the best part of it is the Hat Day! Since I'm a hat lover, I am looking forward to this event. The bigger the hat the better in my opinion. I always loved watching the men and women dressed up in their prettiest clothes and most elaborate hats. I've always wanted to go to Opening Day and it's been on my wish list of things to do. Speaking of hats, I found the cutest kiosk at Fashion Valley called the Hattitude, which is a hat store for both men and women. They sell the cutest hats that are custom made to match your dresses for Opening Day. They have such a variety of designs and the quality is amazing. The best part are the prices are so affordable. If you are in San Diego, I totally recommend checking the place out especially if you are going to Opening Day! You will definitely find a hat that suits your taste. June, the owner, is also super friendly! She will definitely help you find the best hat that looks most flattering on you. They also have a huge store in Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Make sure to check them out if you are ever in Vegas.  I tried on some hats that they offer and each of the hats that I am wearing can be custom made to match your dress. If you are not going to Opening Day, they are a wide selection of summer hats too. Hurry, because they will be leaving on Wednesday. Which one is your favorite design? Have you ever been to Del Mar Horse Races or the Kentucky Derby? If so, I would love to hear about your experience. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week ahead!

This tee fits true to size and wearing an XS very similar to the Lush Tee from last year. It's super comfy and is a V neck vs. a scoop neck. The quality is also much better and thicker. It comes in a variety of colors. I picked up the white and gray one which are great neutrals to layer with the cardigans I got for the fall. I also love that it is a longer length and covers my bottom which is also a great option to wear with leggings.

Early Access Nordstrom SALE





FALL STAPLES



   I can't believe today is finally here! It's the 1st day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I couldn't be more excited. If you are a Nordstrom card holder, you can buy these items now. If you are not, public access starts on July 7/21. You can applied for the credit card here. I definitely recommend purchasing online and doing in store pick up that way you don't have to beat the crowd and everything you need will be ready for pick up. I will be doing the same especially since my local Nordstrom only carries a limited selection. Picking up at the store is so easy instead of clicking ship to your home you can click on the button that says "pick up at store". I find this way super helpful especially with my two boys. I can run in and out without any hassle. 

     I linked below my top favorite items that are on my wish list that are perfect to stock up on and likely to sell out.  If you have been following me on Instagram for a while you know that I am all about SALES and big savings.
