The best Purchases I Made This summer

SWIMSUIT: Marysia  |  SKIRT: Adam Lippes (sold out; similar HERE and HERE)  |  SANDALS: SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker  |  HAT: H&M  |  EARRINGS: Argento Vivo  |   SUNGLASSES: BP. (sold out; also love THESE)

In case you missed yesterday’s post, the best sale of the whole. dang. year. just started and is everything you’ve dreamed of and so much much more (for so much less).  As discussed, it’s not an end-of-season-please-buy-this-crap-that-no-one-else-wanted sale, it’s all brand new pre-Fall merchandise that hasn’t even hit other sellers yet.

While I mostly use this sale to stock up on the fall staples I’ll live in all season (like these over-the-knee boots or this beautiful leather jacket), the sale also has some absolute gems for summer that you can wear best now.  Today I’m highlighting five staple pieces that served me well on our recent trip to France and how you can score some of these favorites in the on-going sale.

Ale počkaj! You said the Nordstrom anniversary Sale is all *Fall* stuff! I did, and it is. However, the brutal truth is that some people live in climates where it’s summer all. year. long.

Viem. What a bunch of jerks.

To help the poor souls who don’t get to spend October through March bundled up and freezing, Nordstrom included some remarkable warm-weather pieces in the anniversary Sale.  But whether you live in a place where fall is not so different from summer or, like me, you simply are gutting it out in the sauna that is new York City through September, it’s worth keeping an eye out for those staple summer pieces while prices are rock bottom.

The One piece Swimsuit

Is it a swimsuit?  Is it a bodysuit?  No one has to know.  One piece swimsuits are not only très trendy best now, but as illustrated in these images from Cannes, they’re your vacay MVP.  No need for a tee or a coverup going to and from the beach, just throw on a skirt or your favorite shorts and you’re ready for action.  This scalloped Marysia one-piece, unfortunately, isn’t included in the sale, but check out this cutie which is!

 Timeless Sunglasses

This is a ideal time to get your favorite sunnies from must-have brands. We’re talking Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Burberry… the list goes on! Trends come and go seasonally, but the selection of classic, timeless frames Nordstrom currently has on sale are too good to pass up.

The Wear-Everywhere Sandals

< >

Low block-heeled sandals are far and away my many heavily-worn summer footwear.  Not only are they easily dressed up or down, but they are actually much more comfortable and better for your back than flats.  I’ve linked to lots of my favorite block sandals above, but check out these great summer-fall transitional beauties that are included in the sale.

The classic Hat


Zbožňujem klobúky (a nosím ich prakticky každý deň pri cestovaní), pretože sú rovnako užitočné, ako sú módne. Keď som na dovolenke, mám nulovú motiváciu robiť čokoľvek s vlasmi a vďaka svojej zbierke klobúkov nemusím. Zistil som, že v priebehu dňa musím neustále brať slnečné okuliare zapnúť a vypnúť. Či už ide o to, že ide dovnútra a von z obchodov alebo sa potrebuje pozerať na môj telefón, nepríjemná vec na slnečných okuliaroch ma môže zblázniť. S klobúkom (aký roztomilý je tento?!), Vaše oči sú chránené pred slnkom a nemusíte sa ho dotýkať celý deň.

Midi sukňa

Teraz ste mnohí pravdepodobne oboznámení s mojou posadnutosťou All-things-Midi. Od ceruzky po záhyby, MIDI je IT základom, ktorý má teraz vo vašej skrini najlepšie. Spárujte sa s plodinovou top alebo motockou bundou pre zábavu alebo blúzku a sako na prácu. V prípade, že potrebujete ešte presvedčivejšie, strih je šialene lichotivý na všetkých typoch tela a buďme úprimní, vyhovuje takmer každej príležitosti, ktorá vyžaduje oblečenie!
