Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale


I have to say Nordstrom's is really my go to place. I will pick up some stuff from Lucky or a few stores here and there but when in doubt, I always resort back to Nordstroms (sorry wallet!) Given that I feel like I'm the size of a cow right now, shopping isn't the experience it used to be so enter: this post. 

I couldn't help search one of my FAVORITE sales of the year and share what pieces I'm totally swooning over. The sale runs until 6/3 so make sure to snag up your favorites asap- so excited for summer pieces!

Tuesday Shoesday: Metallic Keds

I won these metallic Keds in an Instagram giveaway sponsored by Allie from, and if you can't already tell, I'm OBSESSED! They're the perfect combination of casual and chic and can be paired with almost any outfit. I also love that they help me grow an inch! See the three different ways I love to style them below!


the "casual" look

For a more casual look, pair the Keds with your favorite pair of distressed jeans and a flowy top. I've also worn them with leggings and a sweatshirt for an even more casual look!


the "preppy" look

To get this preppy look (which is the perfect spring transitional outfit!) find a pastel (or denim!) miniskirt and pair it with a chunky knit sweater. Once it gets warmer, you can switch the top for a classic button up.


the "edgy" look

I love the midi dresses right now, and I feel like this particular dress from Lush Clothing (similar styles here and here) paired with the Keds gives them a more "edgy" look (but I'm also not very edgy so...) Add a long statement necklace, a dark lip (I'm obsessed with this Revlon matte lip shade), and a top knot, and you're ready to go!

How would you style these shoes?? Which look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

Tuesday shoesday: Sketchers

~  Shoes: Skechers   //   Bathing Suit: Target Vanilla Beach (also love it as a one piece and long line)  //   Shorts: Forever 21 (similar here-and on sale!)   //   Sunnies: Jessica Simpson (similar here)  ~

As part of the Misfit Wearables giveaway, I also won a pair of Sketchers. I have to be honest with you; I haven't owned a pair of Sketchers since middle school (over 13 years ago!) and never thought I would own a pair again, but these shoes are AMAZING! It feels like I'm walking on a yoga mat all day, which is ideal when your future occupation requires you to be constantly on your feet (or if you just want to throw them on to walk to the pool). And I don't think I have to tell you how cute they look! Do your feet a favor, and go order a pair. I'm going to do myself a favor and order them in every other color (they also come in white, black, gray, and taupe).
