First things first, let’s talk about this outfit.  Pretty sure this dress was made for me.  It’s SO my taste.  If they would’ve had this beauty in other colors or patterns, I would have immediately snatched those up as well!  The drop hem with a peplum detail ((y’all know I die for some peplums!)) and the fitted waist are what sold me.  The color is outside of my comfort zone but like I said in yesterday’s post about living on the “outskirts” of my fashion rules, it’s fun to break the rules sometimes 😉  I’m also featuring my newest handbag ((#ihaveaproblem)) in this post and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I like it!  Vera Bradley and team graciously sent this to me and when I first unwrapped it I was a little nervous about the size.  But my iPhone 7+ fits comfortably in the back slip pocket and my coin case, lip gloss, mirror, and sunnies fit perfectly in the main pocket.  If you’re looking for a good small bag for everyday this one should be a contender!

Okay, now before I leave you I want to share a couple of tips for the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE that kicks off tomorrow morning ((for card holders)) and runs until August 6th.  It’s THE BIGGEST sale of the year and one you should DEFINITELY shop!  Every year Nordstrom runs this sale to discount some popular fall and winter items BEFORE the season.  So you’re getting great deals ahead of the time you need the item meaning you can spend less and use them longer!  So cool right?!  So below I have a couple of tips to help you navigate the sale and make sure to check back here BRIGHT & EARLY tomorrow morning to SHOP WITH ME!  I will also be doing a “try-on haul” over on my Instagram stories ((can only be viewed on the Instagram app)) so stay tuned for that as well!

Tips for shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

  • Go through your closet today and decide what you need for the upcoming season ((booties, sweaters, a coat, beauty products, etc))
  • Know your sizes!
  • Shop popular items first!  I will let you know what these are in tomorrows post!
  • Shop as you go!  Example – if you really want a pair of Tory Burch riding boots, add them to your cart then checkout!  That way you don’t miss out on you must haves because you were browsing other items too long!
  • Don’t be overwhelmed!  Its a lot of sale to go through but that’s why I’m here 😉 Just check back on www.how2wearit.com everyday and I’ll have you covered!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see y’all bright and early tomorrow morning!
