Let's face it, it's still July and no matter how much we all want to start thinking about cooler temps, we still have PLENTY of summer days left.  There is nothing better than bright vibrant pieces during the hot summer months and this gorgeous Caribbean Coral High-Low Ruffle Halter Dress from Kohl's is the perfect summer maxi!

What's not to love about this gorgeous dress...the color, the high-low hemline, the halter neckline, the RUFFLES!!!  Did I say the ruffles?! ;-)  OH...AND this dress is currently on sale for ONLY $35.  Such a steal for an amazing dress!!!

This dress is so feminine and beautiful...perfect for a summer wedding, date night, girls night, brunch...the occasion wearing list could go on and on.

For a size reference, I am wearing a size small.  There is plenty of room throughout the bodice of the dress but if you are large chested, you may want to consider sizing up as it can run a little snug under the arms and around the neckline. Overall, the small was the right fit for me.  Let me know if you have any questions.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great start to your week!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - 10 Picks Under $100


YAY!!!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to ALL to shop, whoop whoop!  I know so many of you have been waiting patiently to shop the sale.  And don't worry, there are MANY great pieces left and I've rounded up 10 must have pieces for Fall that are all under $100...even better, many of the pieces are under $50.

You may also view and shop my prior Anniversary Sales posts HERE, HERE, and HERE!

Keep in mind that most of these items are available online and they may not be available in your local store!

Now let's talk about these amazing pieces...

BUFFALO CHECK HOODED CAPE:  This piece is right under $100, which I think is a total steal!  Buffalo check has become a classic wardrobe staple and capes will be popular yet again this fall season.  I love this cape styled with jeans but I also love it styled with faux leather leggings and booties!  I'll be wearing this on cool Fall nights and for weekend family outings!

CHELSEA DESTROYED SKINNY JEANS: For under $50 you can't go wrong with this awesome pair of denim.  These will sell out fast so grab them while you can!  They fit TTS!

DRAPE TRENCH COAT: $66 - the perfect transitional piece to keep you warm during the cooler Fall months.  I LOVE this trench because it is more relaxed and less structured, which makes it the perfect layering piece.  It is also a lighter material so you can wear it to complete your look...no need to take it off as you would another coat!  Runs TTS!

PEASANT TOP: $38 and perfect for styling with a pair of dark skinny jeans and open toe booties!  I also love this top paired with an a-line above the knee suede or denim skirt!

PLAID BUTTON DOWN TOP: $29 - It's almost always understood that every gal needs a great plaid shirt in her wardrobe and let's be honest, probably 2 or 3!  Love this B&W shirt...perfect for that easy casual weekend attire and seriously, the price just can't be beat!



BELL SLEEVE SHIFT DRESS: $32 - I adore this dress, especially in the olive floral print, and I can't wait to wear it this Fall with booties, maybe even my new over the knee boots, and a moto jacket.  If you are a bit taller, you can wear this over top of a great pair of leggings or skinny jeans...if tights are your thing, throw on a pair of tights.  I will accessorize this dress with a floppy hat as well!  It comes in multiple colors too!

WRAP FRONT TOP: $59 - This top is like a tunic top, however I love it even more because of the asymmetrical front.  It adds such beautiful visual interest to this top.  It is longer in the back to feel more like a tunic.  Everyone should have basic chic tunic tops in their wardrobe and you can never go wrong with a white one...super versatile!

OPEN FRONT CARDI: $32 - This cardi is perfection and it a great wardrobe staple...a piece that you will get so much wear out of.  It comes in 4 other colors as well so at $32, you can buy more than one color!  I will be living in this cardi during the Fall season!

BELTED SHORT SLEEVE TOP - $50 - Such a beautiful feminine top that can be worn alone with jeans or paired with a great cardi like the one above or with a moto jacket.  Wear this top to work and then out to dinner with friends.  Dress it up with a pair of faux leather leggings!  Again, a beautiful classic piece that you will have in your wardrobe for a long time!

ANKLE BOYFRIEND SKINNY JEANS: $66 - These are my absolute FAV new jeans!  The frayed ankle cuff is on trend and I love a great pair of boyfriend jeans that are actually figure flattering and these are.  The fit is amazing!  These are a great year round pair of denim and I can assure you that I will be wearing these often starting now!  They run TTS, I bought a size 27.

Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these items! Would love to hear what you decide to order from the Anniversary Sale...have fun shopping and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Maggy London Cold Shoulder Sheath Dress

The perfect little black dress with a cold shoulder twist.  I love the simplicity of this Maggy London "Juliet" cold shoulder shift.  A shift dress is such a classic silhouette and the cold shoulder sleeve is on trend this season.

Because the cold shoulder is so subtle and the neckline is higher you can definitely wear this dress to the office with a pair of close toe pumps and a classic chic bag.  Wear it to a wedding, special event, or even just for a date night out with a pair of lace up heels, some statement jewelry, and a fun clutch.

This dress is a blank slate...style it a variety of ways for many different occasions!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a great day!

Maggy London Reese Midi Dress

This fun "Reese" midi dress from Maggy London is like a blast from the past!  I love the retro floral print on a much more modern form fitting dress.  The midi length is the perfect length for a dress that can be worn to the office or out on the town.

The material is thick enough to provide lots of support and coverage and it hugs the body in all of the right places!  For Fall, I will be pairing this dress with a killer pair of black booties and a moto jacket!    Black and cream is such a classic color combo...a dress that will move easily from season to season.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Vici Striped "Bethany" Dress







Photos | Madi Flournoy Henderson



Striped, slouchy, and SUPER comfortable...this "Bethany" dress from Vici has easily become one of my favorites.  I adore the relaxed fit and the muted blue stripes.  Well and the fact that this dress has pockets!!!

I've posted a lot about Vici lately and it's simple...I post about their pieces because I. AM. OBSESSED!  Literally obsessed.  If you haven't gotten to know Vici yet, you MUST.  I think you will end up being just as obsessed as I am.  Their pieces are gorgeous, affordable, and great quality too.

I want one of everything on their site!  Take a look at their site and let me know what you are loving. I dare you to try and pick just one thing...my guess is that you won't be able to pick just one thing.  There is just too many great pieces to choose.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Handbag Picks Under $50


There is just something about a great bag at an even greater price...am I right?!  Of course I love a beautiful luxury bag but I also LOVE gorgeous bags that don't cost a fortune.  I switch out my handbags often so I like having a variety...bags that I can take anywhere and not worry about "messing" up.

Nordstrom knows me, and those of you who are like me, very well.  Beautiful every day bags for a fraction of the cost!

Last year, during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I purchased two faux leather bags...this bucket bag in black and this tote bag in cognac and they have brought them back again this year!  For the price, the quality of both bags is AMAZING...they are really nice and they look much more expensive than they are.  At $32 each, you just can't go wrong.  I've loved them both so much that I've ordered each in another color!

I've rounded up my other top SUPER AFFORDABLE handbag picks for you as well!  Most are under $40...you read that right, under $40!  Shop for yourself or shop for someone else...at these prices, you can even start checking people off of your holiday shopping list.  Yes, I'm saying it...Christmas in July!

As a friendly reminder, you can shop the sale NOW if you are a Nordstrom debit/credit card holder.  For those who are not, you can shop the sale starting 7/22/16!  See something you like...just bookmark this page and shop whenever you are ready to!


1) Faux Leather Tassel Bucket Bag - $32 - comes in 2 colors.  I bought this last year during the anniversary sale and have LOVED it.  I purchased it in black and this year in cognac.  The quality is excellent and you can wear this bag on your shoulder or as a cross body bag.  This is one of those bags that looks much more expensive than it is.

2) Faux Leather Tote Bag - $32 - comes in 3 colors.  This is the other bag that I purchased last year during the anniversary sale and I purchased in in cognac.  This year, I purchased it in blue!  This bag is the perfect carry all and in my opinion, you can never have too many tote bags.  Yet again, the quality is excellent and this one also looks more expensive than it is.

3) Faux Leather Backpack - $32 - comes in 2 colors.  I have this thing for backpacks right now!  As a busy Mom of two, having a chic backpack has become a necessity.  Grocery shopping, running errands, trips to the zoo, etc are all so much easier when I am handsfree.  I love the look of this backpack...it's chic and simple and will go with everything!

4) Structured Dome Satchel - $40 - comes in 3 colors.  This structured bag is just gorgeous (the inside lining of the bag is an adorable cheetah print) and I love it in grey (also comes in black & red).  This is a great every day bag...take it straight from the office to dinner out with friends!

5) Leather Crossbody Bag - $45 - comes in 4 colors.  What I love most about this bag is that it is a great day to night bag.  If you like carrying something a bit smaller, this is the perfect option.  You can wear it as a shoulder bag or as a crossbody bag.  The chain strap gives it a chic modern touch and the lines are clean and classic.  It comes in the most gorgeous "pink pearl" color too!  Go with the snakeskin print for a bit more edge!

Which bag is your favorite?!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great start to your week!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - More Fall Favorites, Shoes & Coats

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong and we are just a few days in!  I've experienced it first hand and I can tell you all that there are so many AMAZING pieces this year but things are selling out quickly.  It's a grab it before it sells out scenario for many pieces.  If you haven't read my "First Impressions" post, you can read it HERE...I've included some tips to help you navigate this sale.

As a reminder, you must have either a Nordstrom credit or debit card to shop the sale right now BUT if you don't have one, you can easily get one so you can gain access to the sale (and all of the goodies) before it opens to the public on 7/22!

Today I'm sharing some more of my favorite picks for Fall as well as my top shoe & coat picks!  Let's start with SHOES!!!


There are so many amazing AFFORDABLE shoes to pick from but I've narrowed the selection down to 6 styles! I've never owned a pair of over-the-knee boots and I finally do, YAY! I am completely obsessed with these Vince Camuto OTK boots...they are so comfy and well made!  Also, they don't make you feel like you are walking on your toes...it actually feels like you are wearing a flat boot although there is a heel on these.  They are really a STEAL right now!

GREAT BUY - these Halogen Pointy Toe Lace Up Flats...they are super cute on and they come in 7 colors.  At $60, you could buy more than one color!


Next up, some more of my favorite fall picks!

This High Slit Midi Dress is one of my favorite new pieces! It is perfect to wear now, to wear in the Fall with booties and a moto jacket & then wear when it gets more cold with an oversized sweater and tall boots! And even better...it's ONLY $52!!!  I bought this dress and can't wait to start wearing it.  For a size reference I am wearing a size small and I'd say it runs true to size.

AND...I can't get over this Vince Camuto "Abril" bag...it's sooooo gorgeous and it will literally go with EVERYTHING!


Now is the time to also take advantage of the sale and buy yourself a fall/winter coat!  There are many beautiful options but I've narrowed it down based on style and well, my personal favorites too!
You can never go wrong with an AMAZING leather jacket and this Trouve leather jacket is definitely a bargain buy! You will more than get your money back for this one because you will get so much wear out of it. And this pale pink double breasted coat is just stunning and so classy! Not to mention, it is on sale for $140...SCORE!!!  All of these coats are affordable and almost all of them are under $200 and some are even under $100!!!

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below and I'd be happy to answer them! Would love to hear which pieces you like best too! As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
