It’s the last weekend of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  Some of you have asked what I actually ended up buying. Other than the pieces I’m wearing, I’m still deciding on Nordstrom anniversary sale boots (those Rag and Bones are wonderfully flat and comfortable – especially with super thick socks, but I do wear the heck out of rainboots on the east coast) and how many expensive sweaters I can actually afford.  That turtleneck cashmere sweater fits SO nicely under coats, which is a rarity for swingy sweaters.  And so does the Marc Jacobs, actually.  I keep staring at variations of faux-leather pants, and I may pick up a pair of the sweatpants despite my current, erhm, sweatpant collection because so many of you have asked about styling them, there’s typically one final random purchase Sunday night and oh! The Steve Madden snake skin sneakers – I have those, and yeah.  I’m rambling.  But we’re in the final days of the most exciting sale of the year so……  [incoherent mumbling]


Happy weekend!




  1. Love both looks and really love the cami! What type of bra do you wear underneath? Strapless underwire? Bandeu? And any suggestions on some good ones? I always struggle with what to wear under tanks especially ones with a racerback and bigger armholes. Thanks!

  2. I wonder the same thing about what bra to wear!! And what was the nude bra you wore under the cami and the overalls? You look wonderful!

  3. Cute outfit! I love the heels with this look. I should really buy a pair of heels — and then learn how to walk in them….

    If I fly to Pittsburgh, will you be my personal shopper helper for the day? I’ll pay you in babysitting? And cookies? Foot rubs?

  4. Can you tell me what size you are wearing in the cami? I want to purchase but it’s final sale only so am a little nervous! Thank you!

    • I’m wearing a size 6. I bought it slightly bigger than my typical size because I like to hand-wash mine, and found that the Carrie camis shrink a little bit when washed. (The label says dry clean only. Pish pish.)

  5. Got my sweats in the mail yesterday. I haven’t worn them yet, but I tried them on to make sure they fit before I took the tags off and OH MY WORD so comfy. Can’t wait to see tips on styling them if you end up getting them!

    • My sweats arrived a couple days ago – love at first sight. oh my goodness! so soft, so comfy. I’ve worn one of the sweatshirts with sleeves rolled, a leather biker skirt, and sandals to jazz up errands day. So darn cute! Thanks S for recommending these sweats! 🙂

  6. I tried those Sam Edelman heels and they are awesome and surprisingly comfy, but just too high for my lifestyle 🙁 I DO think I’m keeping the rag and bone moto boots though!! Thanks for the sale picks!

  7. Thanks for the recommendation….yeah I’m not a big fan of Victoria’s Secret either, but this does look pretty perfect. I love the plunge! I actually really like Gap Body bras, the Demi Plunge is my favorite, but they have a horrible selection of ill fitting strapless bras. I will be trying this strapless on when I’m bra shopping once my little one is fully weaned! Thanks again!
