I just got back from San Francisco where the anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love is in full swing. Check back next week for more on my adventures. It was fun to spend some time in the city where I spent my twenties with my travel loving seven year old.
Sometimes I do crave basic black and white, but not boring. This sweater and pants fit the bill. I paired them with the most comfortable booties. They do break my no black shoes rule, but with the textured detail they add interest.
We are in the final stretch of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale ends on Sunday, August 6th with prices going back to full price on Monday, August 7th. Don’t miss out. It is also the best time to shop for basics like these, this and these cozy pajamas.
Geometry was by far my favorite subject in High School (as I mentioned in this week’s Mani Monday post). I loved solving proofs. I found great comfort in the logic the discipline uses to explain things. My teacher was very passionate about the subject and a bit of a character. He often told me that I was the best female Geometry student he’d ever had. I did challenge him as to why I was simply not the best as I don’t remember missing one single question on any test the whole year. In any case, he inspired me to excel in math.
Here is an apple and a nice even gingham pattern in his honor.
I can not believe it is officially fall as of last week. Of course it really does not feel like it in Southern California with our recent heat wave. I styled a few year round neutral basics with some fall booties for a day out before it hit 90 degrees. The look is all J. Crew with Vince booties that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July. They are still available and are 30% off. My frayed denim pencil skirt in white from J. Crew has been on repeat and will likely continue to be along with my Western chambray shirt. The booties give it a fall look. I love that there are no seasonal rules about white denim. J. Crew features their all-time favorite white denim looks here.
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.
These are just a few of my picks for women. There is also a great selection for men, children and beauty. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is their best sale of the year.
