My Barbour Coat

Hello, World.

I have the tendency to wear all the clothes I get for Christmas for a full two-weeks after the holiday. I’m usually excited to wear them, I’m excited to try different ways of styling them, and I’m excited to have something new in my closet! This year I was blessed with some really amazing gifts. One gift I was totally not expecting at all that I received from my parents was my very first beadnell Barbour coat. I was totally shocked when I opened the coat on Christmas morning, but as soon as I realized the coat was mine, I immediately started thinking of ways to style it. The nice thing about Barbour, though, is it can be totally casual (like the outfit here), or be dressed up to look a little fancier. I’ve wanted the coat for a while, but I didn’t think I’d get it for years. I love this coat so much, though, and I imagine I’ll wear it in several posts in the future!

He did have a point, but this winter I keep finding myself looking in my closet for a really good jacket, and coming up short. I’m excited to wear this through the rest of the cold season. Seriously, I love the rich olive color of this jacket, and I’m so happy my parents blessed me with it!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2014

Hello, World.

Yesterday marked the beginning of the 2014 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means that tons of amazing brands are currently on sale! Yesterday I went shopping at Nordstrom to get some new ballet flats for work, and I was blown away by all the amazing prices on big ticket items. You should definitely check out the sale! If you are going to do some shopping, make sure you move fast. Items go super quickly, like the Tory Burch riding ‘Eloise’ boots that sold out on the very first day. Despite that great deal being gone, there are plenty of other items that are equally amazing being offered until August 3rd! Here are a few of my favorites:
Rag & Bone boyfriend jeans
Halogen Suiting Pants (many colors)
North Face Quarter Zip Pullover
Tory Burch Fragrance Set
Lush V-Neck Dress
Michael Kors Watch  
MARC by MARC JACOBS handbag 
Kate Spade iPhone Case
Clarisonic Oasis Collection
Frye Riding Bootie
Kate Spade Initial Necklace 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is great for buying some back to school clothes, work attire for a new job, staple fall clothing at a better price, or investment shoes and handbags. I’m a huge fan of this sale because you can get really quality items for prices that only come around once or twice a year. There are so many great brands that will last you a long time. So, head over to your Nordstrom store or hit the website to see all the great offers! Sale ends August 3rd.
