Hi, friends!
I hope your week is going fabulous!  Tomorrow is going to such a great day.  Why you may ask?  Because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins for cardholders!  I am so excited to see what fun fall items are marked down!  Crossing my fingers that I keep my wallet under control! :-/  But, it’s a once a year sale, right?!  And it’s almost my birthday, so I’m allowed to spoil myself a little bit, right?!  Help a girl out here!  Let’s hope my boyfriend and mom aren’t reading this! 😉  Really, though, you should probably check it out tomorrow if you are a cardholder.  Public access begins on July 22nd.  However, most good items are typically sold out by then.  I have my wish list started already!  Be on the lookout for a sale roundup post on Friday!  As well as multiple ones throughout next week!
I have literally been living in this striped dress this summer!  I love that it’s so light and flowy!  Another plus, POCKETS!  Who doesn’t love pockets?  This particular dress is under $35 and comes in so many great colors and patterns!  I know I’ve expressed my love for dresses – especially in this southern heat.  But, sometimes I just want to throw on a dress and be casual.  It can be difficult to wear a dress and not look like it took you hours to get ready.

For this reason, I love to throw on a dress and “dress it down.”  The dress itself is typically dressy enough.  To dress it down a little, I love throwing on a pair of tennis shoes or some casual sandals.  Add a pony tail or messy bun, and you’re ready for a baseball game! 🙂  I still add my typical accessories – which I really cannot leave the house without.  I think the mixture of the accessories and tennis shoes/messy bun make the perfect combination!  

What are some of your favorite ways to dress down an outfit, while still making it look fab?  Let me know in the comments below!  

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re having a great week! 🙂 
xoxo,
