A Few Favorites..

So, last fall I got asked one constantly reoccurring question-- through e-mail/comments or in a restaurant, even: "where did you get that vest?" in regard to my faux fur vests. I even wrote on my blog that I highly recommend buying a fur vest in the dead heat of summer because by the time October gets here all the 'good' sizes are sold out & by November there are no faux fur vests left! So... that brings me to today's post.. 

Yesterday, it was monsooning here (sort of), so Jade and I went to the mall to check out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, again, but a different mall. I quickly learned that the shopping is 10x better online than in store, by the way. However, I did find all of the pieces of an outfit I wore last fall that has probably been my most popular outfit post, ever so I re-created it with current items. Now you can get started on fall shopping while the prices are low and the items are fully stocked. In addition, I wanted to include a couple of items that I am getting. :) (My luggage was 8lbs over the limit on my flight here so I'm having to order my things online!) 
 Leather Moto Jacket (I'm wearing XS) (Inexpensive option) || White Tunic (wearing small but ordering an XS because it runs large) || Denim (obsessed, ridiculously flattering!) | Red Sweater w/elbow patch | Tan Bag  (not a part of the sale and is similar to a Rebecca Minkoff - only $32!)

I am linking a few other options below - including some similar bootie options! Hope you guys have are having a good week. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale does open up to all non-card members tomorrow. xo!

  2. love all of them! online is much better!


  3. I prefer online shopping too. My bedroom is the fitting room! And I still return in store so I don't have to deal with the hassle/time it takes to ship and get a refund.

  4. Thanks for this post! I've been waiting to buy a fur vest as soon as they hit stores, wish me luck!!

  7. What brand are your boots? I love the quilted Steve Madden pair at Nordstrom but the heel seems a little too low.

  8. What brand are your boots? I have been searching all over for the perfect pair! The quilted Steve Madden ones are so cute but I think the heel is a little too flat.

  9. What size vest did you try on? Does TOPSHOP run small?


  10. Aw I remember when you posted that look last season, so cute!

  14. Emily, if you don't mind me asking, what size were those faux leather leggings? I really want them but I'm not sure if they run true to size or not. What would you recommend? Thank you!!!
