Trending: Bomber Jackets

Hi friends! Today I am sharing one of my favorite new looks for Fall that I recently wore on a chilly summer night here in Chicago. This bomber jacket is the perfect summer to fall transition piece. It’s lightweight and instantly adds a bit of edge to any outfit. I love the glen plaid pattern with a very subtle hint of purple in it. Bomber jackets are going to be a huge trend for fall, which I’m so excited about because jackets are my favorite pieces to buy for fall and winter!

I wanted to make the jacket stand out, so I opted for all black on top and bottom. I paired it with black jeans and I loved the way this belt elevated the entire look. I just scored these grey booties from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which are so comfortable and I love the zipper detail. With a price tag under $40, this bomber jacket is a must-have for the fall season! Also eyeing this one and this one.

We leave for our honeymoon in less than two months and I’ve been prepping my wardrobe for our big trip! We’ll be traveling for two weeks. I’m so excited we waited to take our honeymoon. It’s been nice relaxing post wedding and having this to look forward to. First we are going to Kenya where we will stay at two luxurious camps then we are spending the second half of the trip in the Seychelles. My husband and I have never been to either place so we are beyond excited for this adventure!

About this jumpsuit….When I laid eyes on this wide leg jumpsuit I knew it’d be perfect to take for both our safari and island adventures. I’m only packing versatile items that can be worn casually during the day and dressed up at night to avoid overpacking. It definitely has that “safari chic” vibe, doesn’t it? I plan on wearing this with heels at night for dinner and with flats during the day for exploring. This jumpsuit is so comfortable – I just love the super wide leg and off shoulder style. It looks much more expensive than it is! With Fall around the corner, this is the perfect piece for transitioning into the cooler months. But don’t wait long, this jumpsuit is selling out quickly so act fast while it’s still in stock!

What to Buy During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

What to buy during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access kicks off today! I know it can be a bit overwhelming sorting through the entire sale, and I also know it’s a bit hard thinking about Fall shopping when we’re in the heat of Summer. However, this sale is honestly one of the best times to invest in a few Fall wardrobe staples at great prices. All of the pieces on sale are brand new items that were just stocked for Fall. Some of my favorite pieces I own, especially jackets, have been purchased during this Sale in previous years. Plus, who doesn’t love a good deal? I know I do!

To get early access you must be a Nordstrom credit or debit cardholder. It’s super easy to get one and you can even apply for one in store and receive it that day, or simply apply online here! If you’re not a cardholder, the sale opens to the public on July 21st.

To make things as easy as possible for you, I’ve broken down the sale into categories for easy shopping and chose my favorites from the following categories: Jackets, Sweaters, Jeans, Shoes, Athleisure & Beauty, depending on what you might need or are looking for. I’ve already purchased this jacket in grey and these boots in grey (apparently I’m having a thing for grey right now). Whether you’re shopping the Early Access period or waiting until it’s open to the public, mark your calendars and don’t miss out!  Simply click on any image below to shop the item!

Casual Summer Style

07.11.17

Happy Tuesday friends! It’s been hot and humid in Chicago this week – just how I like it! Ha. This summer I’ve been gravitating more towards casual style and mainly buying pieces that can easily be dressed up or down with a simple shoe change. This embroidered boho top had me at hello – isn’t it cute!? The material is extremely soft and I especially love the detailing around the arms! Every season I can count on Old Navy for having the best selection of casual, on-trend pieces at a great price. Since you know I’m a big fan of mixing high and low, I paired this $22 top with cut off shorts and Valentino camouflage espadrilles for an easy daytime look. It would also look great with white jeans and heels.

With summer in full swing and no travel on the calendar until Labor Day for our honeymoon, I’m so excited to soak up these sunny months at home in Chicago. June was jam packed with three big trips and my 30th birthday celebration! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I was in Napa, Aruba (my first time visiting) and Colorado last month. There really is no place like home though!
