Red, White & Blue {Shopping}

From left to right dresses: 1 / 2 / 3 
Shoes: Wedges / Moccasins 

There is a right way and a wrong way to wear red, white and blue. The right way is to have majority of one/two colors, and just a sprinkle of third. The problem becomes when people wear all three colors proportionally and look like the flag. I mean, if that's what you are going for, have fun, but it doesn't look all that great. This weekend, sport some patriotic colors but avoid looking like the United States has thew up on you. Please. ha! 

Next week Nordstrom starts its Anniversary Sale and you know it's going to be sooo goooood! Better save your dollars and not go shopping for next few days because you are going to want to get your hands on a few things. Let me explain.
WHY: this is a limited time offer on all the new fall styles! How cool is that?!
WHAT: you will find the hottest trends on major mark down before fall season even begins
WHO: it is a sale that covers all their departments - women, men, kids, and includes designer items!
WHEN: the sale starts on July 9th (for cardholders) and on JULY 17th for the rest of the public. Don't wait, the prices will go up on August 3rd and there won't be another sale on fall items until the end of the season (i.e. a few months)!

So there you have it - put your pennies together and get to shopping because you will thank yourself with the first sign of fall. I will post finds and different sale picks next week, then I will cover the rest  of the sale. Come back for the scoop on the latest and best trends!

Last but not least, Emily Schuman of the famous Cupcakes and Cashmere blog is launching her own clothing line with Nordstrom and ShopBop! I love her style and how simple, yet classic her outfits are. You can shop the line on July 6th online or July 10th in stores. The entire collection (check preview here) ranges from $80 to $180 and that's reasonable for such a high end store collaboration. I can't wait to see and shop the pieces!
