Ok, so my first order from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access 2017 arrived on Saturday. If you missed my Instagram Stories review and try-on, don't worry - I'll recap everything here. Here's what you need to know:
Yesterday we went to Target to pick up some fun items to include in a little care package I'm sending to my nephew who will soon be a big brother (my sister's due with baby #2 any day now! Very exciting!) My boys were eager to help pick out small toys and treats, so they were relatively well-behaved while I tried on a few new fashion items in the dressing room first!
Pineapple prints, colorful lace, gingham checks, madras plaid and more amazing summer fashions greeted me at my local Target store yesterday. I had one of those extremely rare, super-successful shopping trips with both kiddos (candy bribes may or may not have been involved) and was able to snap some pics and try on a few items, too!
Shown above: Pineapple tee (just $5!) and Mossimo Low-Rise Boyfriend Shorts 6" Inseam, wearing size 4/27 (fit is TTS). I think this is the pair online but can't quite tell for sure.
Although we're heading into spring, now is still the perfect time to buy a winter coat at a major discount. One style that won't go out of style anytime soon is the classic parka. I was looking for an olive one for a while now and found this amazing a.n.a. parka on clearance at JCPenney this weekend! It features faux fur trim on the hood and super cozy hand cuffs, plus a cinchable waist to give it some more shape. For reference I'm wearing a size large and I'm 5'8". This parka is just $59.99 and I paid $54 at the register with an additional 15% off applied.
Yesterday temperatures dipped into the teens here in Connecticut so I was actually excited to put my new coat to the test, and let me tell you, it kept me toasty warm with just a plaid shirt underneath (similar) and my leather riding boots (similar)! This isn't a sponsored post or anything, I was just really excited to share this jacket with you guys and my Instagram photo doesn't do it justice, so I forced my dear husband to snap these photos so you can see how good it looks (or at least how good I think it looks!) Snag one for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
Back-to-school fashion is all about finding versatile pieces that you can wear multiple ways, which is why this Mudd Embroidered Utility Jacket was a clear choice for me as I was putting together my third look for Kohl's (see my first and second looks here and here). To say I'm obsessed would be an understatement: You can wear utility jackets with ripped jeans and Converse, shorts and combat boots, or even a flirty dress and heels. #musthaveforreal The embroidery on this particular utility jacket makes it feel special while the black-and-white color palette is still easy to mix and match with everything in your closet.
