The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Survival Guide

nordstrom anniversary sale, nsaleHey everyone!

It’s that time of year, again, one of my all-time favorite sales is getting ready to kick off–the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, known as #NSALE on social media, is something you won’t want to miss.

But this sale can be a bit overwhelming:  it has different start dates (one open to the public, one for cardholders), TONS of items that go on sale and new items added daily/restocked, different ways to shop the sale, etc. Read More

Well I certainly did not think I would get this far, but here I am!  One week past my  due date, and Baby Girl is still cozied up inside.   We’ve tried just about everything in the book to induce labor, walking, bouncing on an exercise ball (I’ve bounced so much on it, that it’s starting to go flat!), spicy foods, hot baths, cinnamon stick tea….aaand nada.

Each day, I find a new level of discomfort, a new level of tired, and a new level of being over it.   Read More

Fall Date Night: Turtleneck Sweater + Faux Leather Leggings

J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck  |  J.Crew Factory Chambray Popover  |  HUE Faux Leather Leggings  (non-maternity)  |  Louis Vuitton Speedy 30  |  Tamaris D’Orsay Kitten Heels (old, love these & these)  |  J.Crew Factory Pearls  |  Wristology Watch in Cobalt, c/o *use code ‘CLASSYSASSYWHIT‘ to receive 20% off your order*  |  Prada sunglasses via DITTO, *use code ‘CLASSYSASSY’ to receive your first month free*  |  MAC lip color in ‘Ruby Woo’

Ok, you all, you have to purchase this cable knit turtleneck.  Seriously, you will not regret it!!  I loved this sweater so much when I purchased it in burgundy and orchid last year, that I had to add another color when J.Crew restocked them this year.  J.Crew’s game has been ON POINT this year!

Unfortunately, the burgundy color was not restocked this year, BUT the sweater does come in eight other wonderful colors.  I’m considering going back for the navy one…when you really like something, you buy it in all colors, right? 😀

One more FYI–this sweater can be a little itchy if you have sensitive skin, so you might want to add a light button down or turtleneck underneath.

Even though October has officially arrived, temperatures are a little above average right now.  I can’t complain too much, the humidity is gone, and it’s breezy so it doesn’t really feel like it’s in the low 80s, and the mornings and evening are still cool.  So while Fall continues to figure her stuff out (and while Baby Girl is content staying put for the time being), I am sticking with comfortable outfits that can easily transition from daytime to nighttime temps!  M. and I have been taking a lot of walks in the evenings to try to speed up labor, haha, and it cools off enough to need light layers.

For me, that means a comfy pair of jeans or leggings, a lightweight shirt like this tissue turtleneck (at 39 weeks, I can’t believe it still fits!!), ankle booties, and a vest to throw on.

YOU GUYS—-it’s actually starting to feel like fall around here!!  Over the last couple of days, the temperature highs are low 70s, and the mornings are even cooler, so you know what that means….It is OFFICIALLY Blanket Scarf/Vest/Chunky Sweaters/Boots/Pumpkin Spice err-thang Season, woot WOOT! *cues confetti*

My husband and I took a long walk after taking blog pictures last night, and I didn’t even break a sweat!  (That’s a huge win, being 38 weeks pregnant!)

So now that the weather has cooled off (hopefully for good), I am breaking out all of my comfy ponchos, cozy blanket scarves, and enjoying a little bit more neutral color palettes.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good punch of color as much as the next gal, but I have really  been crushing on neutrals lately! (have you seen my Pinterest board?). Read More
