Modern Suiting

Double Breasted?  Tweed?  Solid? I started thinking about my first suit as early as I can remember.  I think it was Kindergarten.  I remember my first tweed suit (with a skirt of course) that I got for intern interviews in college.  I have lost count of the suits I have had over the years.  I currently have only three.  I recently had a meeting where I needed to be dressed up, but most certainly not in a matched suit.  I wanted to style the pants from one of my Theory suits, the other is Hugo Boss.  I went out in search of a jacket and found not one, but two, that worked well with the pants and my favorite leopard print accessories

Aubergine and Asphalt

There are so many great pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  In my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post last week I featured six looks.  Here is a detailed look at the Paige Skinny Jeans in Aubergine and the Rag & Bone Booties in Asphalt.  As you may have noticed, I rarely wear black shoes.  I prefer a little color or interest with my shoes.  I love that these are as versatile as black while still being interesting.  Colored demin is such a great way to dress up denim and these skinny jeans are definitely super skinny, but also so comfortable.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I look forward to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. It is a great time to get some new fall looks at a third to half off before they go back to regular price on August 8, 2016.  It started today, July 14, 2016 with early access to cardholders. General access begins next Friday, July 22, 2016. I have put together six ensembles with my picks from the sale.  I have been looking for the perfect booties forever. This year I found two pair that fit great! All the items are linked in the captions.
