I fell in love with this dress the very first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but seeing that I woke up at like 3am to shop I did not heed the warning to size up. I got my first dress in a size 10 which was ok and I could have made it work but I wanted to actually put my hands in the pockets so I immediately ordered a 12. It’s on Anniversary Sale for $98.90 and luckily they are getting more sizes back in the black, eggplant and teal colors.
I absolutely love this dress for a business professional because it has a great straight skirt but with just a slight ruffle on the sleeves that helps it looks feminine. Here I added my absolute favorite Anniversary Sale Ted Baker Skalett Pump that have an adorable bow and rose gold accent. These run true to size and are $149.90 during the sale. The Madewell clutch might be a little too casual but I loved the pop of light pink color and I’m still on the hunt to find something a little dressier to go with this.
I was a little hesitant when I saw the BlankNYC Drape Front Faux Suede Jacket because although it is very soft it didn’t have much shape to it on the hanger. Well I’m glad that I tried it on because it is the perfect weight for Texas when it can get a bit chilly in fall but a “real” jacket is not needed plus my daughter just kept petting it because it’s so soft…the six year old has spoken! It is $78.00 and not in the anniversary sale but it is a cheaper option than some of the other suede jackets out there. This I got it a Large because Medium was not available in this color and the size chart showed L to be 10-12 I thought it fit well but I think the Medium could have worked as well. Vince Camuto Reeista Bootie, if you have read any of my other posts about this bootie you know that they made a similar style last year and I loved it then so I got black this year, these run true to size and I grabbed my normal size 7. These are on Anniversary Sale for $99.90 and showing a good amount of sizes and colors still available.
I love how easily this dress can be dressed down for weekend with a jean jacket and some wedges. The jacket I’m wearing is an older The Limited jacket but I liked the lighter color for this outfit but my Vince Camuto would have looked just as cute just wasn’t in the car! There is also a cute KUT from the Kloth for $79 that is a really close color and a bit less expensive than the Vince Camuto. The Madewell Transport tote I literally returned and then re-bought because I wasn’t sure if the size was right. I have iPads and dinosaurs to carry around, but I was surprised how much I can fit in this plus the cute crossbody strap it is perfect. I talked with the girls at Nordstrom and they said the saddle color is VERY popular and it will go in and out of stock so if you can’t find there hit up Madewell they have been running a $25 off your purchase so my bag ended up being $133. I purchased the Treasure & Bond wedge sandals at the beginning of summer and I was a bit concerned because I do have a pretty high arch and luckily after a few wears the leather does stretch out and not feel so stiff. They are great color and I have gotten a ton of wear out of them, I did go up 1/2 a size in these.
