I just returned from a long (and awesome) weekend in NYC/Hamptons.  I didn’t get much time to shop, but I did notice Fall styles trickling into the window displays (makes me so happy).  A couple of things about fall clothing in the summer…..it gets us excited, but it tricks us into buying items that we won’t wear for at least a couple of months.  By the time we wear them, they have already gone on sale.  This is why I don’t purchase fall until September.

I decided to share this pre Fall maxi by Gap in printed blue (on sale) because it’s still very summer with hints of Fall.  The dark cotton is heavier than most cottons which makes it feel a little more Fall forward.  I paired the Gap maxi it with this brown felt fedora which is also darker and heavier (felt) than a straw hat giving it a later summer/fall feel.

This looks keeps you sweat free (no knits), but on a fall palatte for a great pre fall feel.  Have a great Monday! xo

It’s a new week and a fresh start.  But first let me ask why is Monday so far from Friday and Friday so close to Monday?? Just had to put it out there.  To be honest sometimes I like Monday because I like routine (more like I need routine cause I am a yellow).

I love this Vince checkered top paired with this Veronica Beard A line skirt.  Probably because history has proven time and time again that black and white just goes together (unless you’re in jailbird garb).  My closet is filled with so much black, so to branch out a little I have been trying to incorporate more white.  It is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors to style.  For fancy feet I chose these Barbara Bui biker sandals that my girlfriend picked up for me in NYC.  I am in love with them! Lastly, I am a MAJOR Kelly Wearstler fan, so my fella surprised me with her Liatris pearl earrings for Mother’s Day.  That’s a wrap!

It’s one of the two best Fridays of the year! The way this summer is flying by it feels like it could be black Friday, but obviously that is not it. It’s the fabulouso  Nordstrom Anniversary sale!!! It’s my favorite time to stock up on some my favorite fall pieces at a fraction of the price. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is unique in the sense that it offers new fall 2015 items on sale right off the bat instead of waiting for the season to end to mark down items. All of these items will go back to full price once the sale ends.

I especially love the Lexi Bucket bag by Rebecca Minkoff (comes in black, blush and tan).  Fringe is so on trend right now and this bag has the perfect touch of it without going over the top.  Stuart Weitzman makes some of the best boots and the black pair above is no exception.  I never see these boots on sale, so I will be grabbing a pair myself.  How cozy does the Joie faux fur cardigan look! It’s a timelessly chic piece for fall.

I’d love to hear what you find at the sale/online. Yes, you can shop the sale online just click the links above.  Have a great weekend!

Lulus Black Patient Ankle Strap Heels

Max and Chloe 3 Row Chain Necklace (similar style)

Blue Ombre Ray Ban Sunglasses 

Hello everyone! I just left a day at the theme park with the kids and I am pooped! However, I am never too tired to talk about a great dress…especially when it’s under $50 (FF readers use code XOFASHF for 15% off)! This Fashionnova Miami Ink dress is so chic and really comfortable.  I love the cutout and black strap features.  This Fashionnova piece is a safe and inexpensive way to try a a new trend.

I have purchased and have had quite a few ankle strap heels sent to me and I have to say this pair by Lulus is pretty darn comfortable (hard to achieve with this style).  *Bonus* they are REALLY affordable too!

So there you have it, an on trend (maybe I am biased) under $150 look. Have a great day! XO

Ps Anyone getting excited for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?! I am!
