It feels good to be home with all the noise and chaos of family in the summer! If you read my last post, then you know I might be crazy, but at least I’m not lonely. I had such a great time in Carmel. I’ll be sharing our itinerary, but in the meantime, here’s what I wore! It was fun to be able to wear all my new purchases! The high was in the 60’s! YASSSS!
You guys know I love a good challenge, so I tried to only wear my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases. It wasn’t hard at all to do because I love to wear clothes just as soon as I get them! So when Nordstrom asked me to share my picks from the #NSale, it was a no brainer. Here are all the different ways I wore my sale purchases.
First up, I wore the moto leggings and grey sweater for our travel day. It truly was the perfect travel outfit, sooooo comfy. Plus, it’s so chic! Here’s a close up of the leggings:

Outfit Links: Sweater – Rag & Bone, Jeans – Articles of Society, Shoes – Treasure & Bond, Backpack – Rebecca Minkoff, Watch – Michael Kors, Cuff – MantraBand, Earrings – Nadri for similar here
If there was one item I kept reaching for over and over, it was this sweater. It was easy, comfy, soft, and not bulky. I know this will be a winter staple. I told my friend who has a very a refreshing, minimalistic style that this sweater should be her one #NSale purchase. (Note the shoes and bag.)
Outfit Links: Top – old, Jeans – Paige, Shoes – Treasure & Bond, Backpack – Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses – Celine in store, Watch – old Kate Spade for similar here, Cuff – MantraBand, Top- Club Monaco Kalani Sweater (sold out)
The next night, we went out for cocktails and then to dinner. If there is one trend I’m am noticing all over the place, it’s funky denim hemlines. You name it, they’re doing it. These black jeans are a fun way for me to dip my toe into to the trend in a more conservative way. (Note the shoes and the bag.)
Outfit Links: Sweater – J. Crew (sold out) for similar here, Tee – Rag & Bone Cozy Vee Sweatshirt for similar here and here, Jeans – Articles of Society, Sneakers – Kate Spade (sold out), Backpack – Rebecca Minkoff, Cuff – MantraBand, Watch – old Kate Spade for similar here, Earrings – Nadri for similar here
The next day, we went shopping. There is nothing that says “beach” to me more than a white, blue, and grey color combo. I liked adding my new bag to this classic combo to update the look and edge things up a bit. The white cropped flare jeans also helped update this outfit.

This top is one of those tops that you just feel good in. It has the effortless, not trying to hard vibe that I love. When we decided to try a rooftop bar, I knew this was just the top I wanted to wear! Plus, it’s less than $30! You can’t beat that! (Note the shoes and the bag.)
Outfit Links: Jacket – Mackage for similar here, Jeans – Paige, Shoes – Treasure & Bond, Backpack – Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses – Celine in store
It was freezing this night! I’m so glad I brought my winter coat! See, overpacking sometimes means you are prepared for any situation! Ha! Here I am in the crazy hem jeans again! Cute, huh? (Note the shoes and the bag.)
I’m sorry, did you “note” anything? Hahahaha! Clearly I’m loving a certain pair of shoes and a certain gold bag!
A special thanks to my friend, Sarah Caton Wynne for taking my pictures.

Silly question, but what socks do you wear with the black Nikes?

Love the crazy hem line, and can’t wait to see the itinerary
Carly Lee says
Oh good, this gives me some motivation!
I’m looking forward to your itinerary- thinking about Carmel for our anniversary trip! Love all your outfits here. Is that Rag and Bone sweatshirt long-sleeved? Looks like the perfect shade of grey!
Carly Lee says
Thank you for your great comment to get me motivated! It would be a great anniversary trip! No, it’s a short-sleeved tee.
We are in Carmel now and hoping to see your itinerary before we leave:)
