Currently Coveting: Olivia Palermo’s Nordstrom Collection

Can I ask you a question?  Are you obsessed with Olivia Palermo’s style?  Do you have a Pinterest board dedicated to her outfits; do you browse the Internet to see what she’s wearing?  If you answered yes to all of the above then you’ve come to the right place, because the Olivia Palermo’s collection at Nordstrom is now in stores and online!  With all of the designer collaborations that Target and H&M have been doing, it was only a matter of time before Nordstrom got in on the action and who better to work with but a modern style icon?  If you aren’t familiar with her, check out this link to see Olivia’s popular street style moments.  When I saw that this collection was a reality, I knew it was the perfect subject for my Currently Coveting post because who doesn’t want designs imagined by someone whom you get your style inspiration from?  So without further ado, let’s discuss the collection.  The designs take a modern spin on staples, which makes it very fashion forward.  To say I want it all is not an exaggeration.  Just when you think you’re looking at a classic style, there is a fabulous twist that makes it fresh and unique.  A few items that stood out to me were the denim blazer, a striped sweater with a surprise bow in the back, and a white blouse with a peplum bottom, not to mention the fabulous jumpsuits and wide legged pants in colorful prints.  My favorite part of the collection is the creativity of the designs. These pieces can stand-alone but there are so many different ways to mix and match them all.  This is the collaboration I have been waiting for and it definitely did not disappoint.  So what about you, will you be purchasing an Olivia Palermo original?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When I was a kid, I lived two hours from the nearest mall.  Every summer, my mother would take me to Nordstrom for their legendary Anniversary Sale.  There we would shop all of the new fall collections and I would leave with a fabulous wardrobe for the back-to-school season.  Now that I am an adult, I still revere the Nordstrom Sale as a very special time of year.  As much as I love the warmer months, fall is my absolute favorite season.  Having the opportunity to shop the store’s fall collections at a lower price is very exciting.  So tell me, have you shopped the sale yet?  Are you planning to?  I, for one, had a hard time finding styles that I absolutely had to have.  Usually I have a really hard time narrowing down my choices, but this year that wasn’t the case.  I am not sure if it is because I am limited to shopping online or if I am just really not a fan of the 70’s throwback trend for fall.  Nevertheless, I did round up a few pieces that I would like to add to my wardrobe.  I would’ve liked to have found a lot more sweaters, coats, and boots, but I have put together for you my favorite pieces from the sale.  It may not fit all of my fall shopping needs, but it is a good start.  I would love to hear what you think of my picks and what items your wish list.  Hurry up and get to your local Nordstrom or shop online before the prices go back up on August 2nd.  Happy shopping!

Currently Coveting: Lace

Right now I am all about lace! I don’t know if it is the impending holiday season, or the cold weather that brings it out in me, but I can’t get enough of it. For the cold weather, I love pairing delicate lace with my cozy knitwear for a softer look. With holiday festivities approaching, a lace dress is a lovely option to be both a festive and romantic style. Pair it with velvet ant you’ll really make a statement.  Whether you wear lace head to toe, or as a peek-a-boo accent, it will elevate your look.  See my collage of my favorite lace pieces that I cannot wait to have in my closet.

How To Transition Summer Pieces to Fall

So you recently bought a dress that you love, but now that we are approaching fall, you don’t know how to style it.  When I shop, I try not to purchase for a season; I want to make sure that I get as much out of my investment as possible.  You may think that it’s time to store away your summer wardrobe, but you’re wrong.  There is still life left in your summer staples; the key to making it work is layering.   Take this flowy and lightweight dress from H&M.  It has been a great piece to wear on a warm day, but by adding a leather moto and booties, I am ready for the cooler weather.   If a jacket or scarf isn’t enough for you, try wearing a turtleneck or sweater underneath the dress.  This way, you have added sleeves and can really get the most out of one piece.  Being creative with your clothes is fun, practical, and more cost effective.  To help make a smooth transition between seasons, pair your summer pieces with rich colors, bold prints, and more coverage.  The weather is unpredictable, so it’s important to be prepared and stylish no matter what the day brings. What summer purchases are you most excited to transition into fall?

Color Crash Course: Black & White

After a summer of pastels, I know that you are itching to start wearing richer hues.  While I am not urging you away from fall’s gorgeous jewel tones altogether, I do want to focus on one of my favorite pairings: black and white.  I know it is not the most innovative idea, but it is one of those fashion statements that should be a part of every fashion lover’s wardrobe.  Before we continue, let’s get one thing straight; an all black and white ensemble is not trendy, it is classic.  Pairing black and white together is modern, cool, but never in your face.   No matter your age, time of year, or what’s considered “in style”, you can never go wrong with wearing this combination.  Whenever I find myself clueless on what to wear, my go-to outfit is always a variation of my favorite black and white pieces.  With this classic color combination, there are a variety of stylish options available.  Whether you go with a bold abstract print or simple and sophisticated color blocking, you will look polished and chic with this effortless style.  If you need to add a bit of color, brighten your outfit up with red lips and colorful jewelry.  The following are my favorite new black and white combinations to play with now or to debut in the fall.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Once upon a time, I lived two hours away from a mall and online shopping didn’t exist.   Each summer, I would make the long trek to Nordstrom for their annual Anniversary Sale to go back-to-school shopping.  Even though I’m well out of school and shopping has changed drastically, I have still kept up with this tradition.   This legendary sale allows you to shop Nordstrom’s Fall 2014 collections at a reduced price.  I know it’s hard to imagine wanting to try on thick coats and boots in the middle of summer, but trust me, it’s well worth it!  It is a great way to get a head start on the must have styles and trends that will be popping up in stores soon.  The sale is open to the public until August 4th in stores and online.  After that, the fabulous new fashions will go back up to full price and it is a harsher reality.  The following are a few of my favorite cool-weather pieces I must have for a stylish fall.

Beach Season: Affordable Swimwear Trends

After a long winter of wearing turtlenecks and overcoats, it’s hard to imagine showing off our skin.  However, June is upon us and we can all breath a sigh of relief because summer is finally here.  So let’s hit the beach!  We may dread trying them on in stores, but finding that stylish swimsuit for the summer is very important. This season, it is all about tropical prints, vibrant colors, and simple lines.  I have put together a few of my favorite styles that are an affordable option for some poolside fun.  Now don’t forget your sunblock, a great book, and a fabulous hat!

In addition to this post I have created a collection, using Mavatar, of swimsuits that are on my wish list.  Mavatar is an iPad app with a browser extension.  It makes shopping online better by creating product wish lists, automatically applies all discounts, coupons, and provides free shipping.  I love using this app because, by making collections, I can keep track of what I want to buy and wait for amazing deals.  Periodically, I will attach a Mavatar collection that complements one of my posts.  I highly recommend you to download the app, you’ll never shop the same again!
