Blacks + Brights

Today's "skirt" is actually a sleeveless shift dress layered under a top. I'm thrilled with how the ensemble turned out because now I can remove a leather skirt from the fringes of my wishlist and focus on finding a pair of leather shorts (hoping this one works out!)

Rolled

As fun as it is to "dress up" every now and then, I'm still most at home in loose, casual clothing. I wore this outfit a couple weekends ago to the dentist for my biannual teeth cleaning. It would be too extreme to say I have a dental phobia... but let's just say there's no point in ruining my nicer clothes because I'm always a wrinkled, sweaty mess afterwards.

Turquoise + Orange Accents

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale has begun! Select fall items are discounted from now until 8/4 (when prices go back up to retail.)

Picks:
1) Tory Burch Eloise Riding Boot (sale $299.90; retail $495) - My TB Nadine riding boots from a few years ago was also a Nordstrom exclusive. This year's version, the Eloise, has slightly different detailing. Measurements for the Eloise look the same as my Nadine, so I'd recommend these boots to ladies looking for taller shafts with narrow-to-normal calf circumference.

2) Burberry Brit Cobridge Hooded Anorak with Detachable Liner (sale $659.90; retail: $995) - The Cobridge looks the same as my burgundy version from last season (outfits: here, here, here), but with the additional interior liner for extra warmth.

3) theory Gabe B 2 Blazer (sale $263.90; retail: $395) - A classic blazer at a discounted price. I bought my navy blue theory blazer many years ago and it's still the one that I reach for most often.

4) kensie Faux Leather Mixed Media Dress (sale $65.90; retail $99) - LBD with the added faux-panel twist looks a lot like my Zara faux-leather dress (outfits: here, here).

-------------------------------------------------------------

I'm channeling my inner prep with an almost-all-J.Crew outfit, with an accompanying scenic background that isn't so random. If I had actually planned ahead of time, I would have used a large tote, because realistically, who brings a clutch anywhere near bodies of water?

Happy shopping and have a great weekend, everyone!
