two cute outfits from the nordstorm anniversary sale plus $400 gift card giveaway!

July 24, 2014

it's been so fun to cover the nordstrom anniversary sale all week with my posts on staples of the sale, cute outfits, the best kid's shoes, men's outfits, and today wrapping up with two more of my favorite full looks from the sale. it's also been SO fun to spread the love for a week and give away nordstrom gift cards to so many readers who have made my blog a success! i say this over and over but i mean it: without you guys, my blog is nothing. so a big huge giant THANK YOU to every one of you who reads what i say and gets excited with me over the deals and loves a good sale just as much as i do. i sure love you guys!!!

my last two looks from the nordstrom anniversary sale are really fun and super different from each other. the first is a white tee and jeans but i'm seriously completely obsessed with the bright pops of colors from my hot pink MAC lipstick, ted baker bag, and steve madden blue pumps that make this outfit come to life!

p.s. please forgive me for the couple of things that have sold out in the first outfit since the sale launched! i feel so bad and wish i had control over that, but i offered suggestions on sale that are super similar in those couple of items.

shirt: pleione mixed media tunic
jeans: MOTHER ‘the looker' skinny jeans, similar from nordstrom anniversary sale: j brand ‘maria' high rise skinny jeans
shoes: steve madden ‘surfice' pointy toe pump
clutch: ted baker london ‘bow' clutch (sold out in pink), similar ted baker bow clutch
lips: MAC (from sold out nordstrom anniversary sale collection), similar – candy yum yum
necklace: kendra scott rayne cobalt necklace

this next outfit is ideal for the working girl or anyone who needs a business casual but COMFY outfit! these tweed pants are one of my favorite surprise finds of the nordstorm anniversary sale. super affordable at $29 and they kind of feel like pajama pants while being a somewhat dressy pant and i'm obsessed with that. *sidenote: these run small so order a size up!

i love the blousy top here too and the SHOES! i have said it before and i'll say it again – halogen makes THE most comfortable shoes. if you've been waiting to get the perfect pair of animal print shoes, these halogen marlie calf pointy toe pumps are the ones. so so comfortable. it's like halogen went and made a pointy toe pump out of a shoe that feels like slippers. it's beyond amazing and they'll work with jeans, a dress, dress pants, really whatever you want.


shirt: bellatrix faux wrap front blouse
pants: jolt zip detail tweed ultra skinny pants
shoes: halogen marlie calf pointy toe pump
sunnies: wildfox couture club fox 54mm sunglasses
lips: MAC (from sold out nordstrom anniversary sale collection), similar – candy yum yum

Hi! Just making sure that we’re supposed to like and comment on today’s IG giveaway post? The one with today’s cute outfits.
Also, what if we’re private. My job requires that I’m private


yes, comment on the IG post and no problem if your account is private! 🙂


Corrine, you have opened my eyes to the glory that is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I had no idea that they had this huge sale every year ( that may have been a good thing, at least for my wallet). Thanks to you I’ve gotten some great deals for myself and for my baby who will be here any day now ( I HOOOOPE! I can’t take being pregnant any more! :~) ).
Thanks for putting together your favs and for the outfits that has been helpful because sometime stock images just don’t give you a clue what something will look like. I think I’ll be looking pretty good post-partum with these finds! I love reading your blog and tell everyone to check it out. Keep up the great work !


These outfits look so great. I love the tweed pants and I think I just may have to go to the sale today. Thanks for putting on these giveaways. So fun!


That pink clutch is amazing – great finds!!

T. Manahan:

Kira Hyde:

You are a doll! Everything about you and your blog is adorable! Thanks for keeping my closet updated!


Sorry, this is a bit little late for this post, but i had a question for you about the black faux wrap front blouse, if you get a moment. It looks so cute on you, but when i clicked through, it looked very boxy and shapeless on the models. Do you find it easy to wear? Do you think it’s something that needs adjusting throughout the time it’s actually being worn? It looks like it could be a really good base piece to pull together anything you need to dress up a little bit…


hey rin, super easy to wear! really flattering and blousey and not boxy at all in my opinion 😀 i hope that helps!!


Thanks so much for the follow-up 🙂
