I don't know if I'm the only one, but when the end of July approaches, I immediately go into fall mode. I end up always wanting to pin every fuzzy sweater and knee high boot I see. Lucky for us fall fanatics, Nordstrom always comes through with early fall releases in their annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Talk about all the heart eyes! 

If you're unfamiliar with the sale, here's a quick synopsis of the loveliness that is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Nordstrom releases new fall arrivals that are on sale in the beginning, and on August 1st, the items go back to regular prices. If you're a Nordstrom card holder, you got to explore the sale early, but now it's open to the public for a limited time. 

I know it's quick silly to shop for fall items so early, but you'll be thanking your wallet in October. All of the items above are apart of the sale and are so worth the purchase! 

Topshop Sweater: Great price point and the criss cross back is everything! 

Paige High Waist Denim: Almost 50% off the OG price! So comfy! Best. Jeans. Ever.

Sam Edelman Boots: Suede is everything this season. The color and heel height are perfection!

Happy shopping!

DRESS  gingham mini |  SANDALS  cork heels |  BAUBLE  antique (similar)

Happy Independence Day y'all! 

Of course what is the 4th of July without a festive post? I'm usually not the one to go all out with my outfit, but I do try to wear something subtly patriotic. Instead of buying something specifically for the holiday, I usually try to find a item in my closet that I can manipulate to look very Americana. 

I bought this Free People Belle Mini Dress in May and haven't put it to good use until now! You can't go wrong with gingham and a dress with pockets! I added my favorite red bauble necklace to spruce up the look. The best part about it, you didn't just spend $100 bucks for one event! Such an easy dress to throw on during the summer months.

My favorite part of course, the shoes! Yes, the price tag is high, but totally worth the money. If you're looking for a summer nude heel-- these Schutz Enida Sandals are perfect!

Cheers, America!

TOP  off the shoulder tassel |  HAT  straw hat |  DENIM  white jeans  | 

ESPADRILLES  flats |  NECKLACE  layered y-chain |

 Am I in Italy on holiday or what? Ok, maybe not but this outfit is sending me straight into vacation mode! The off shoulder and tassel details are the perfect combination on this Velvet by Graham & Spencer top

This is one of Bloomingdale's 100% Exclusives that I'm currently obsessing over. I'm loving the contrast in the black and white, but if you're going all in for the whole European look-- this top also comes in white. I have no objection to it! 

Of course, this hat! OMG-- one of my best purchases for the summer! It had been out of stock on the Nordstrom site for weeks, but finally, I got my hands on this beauty. So glad I'm grabbed it while I could. I would even suggest looking at the same hat in navy. It's love, y'all!

Cheers to Friday!

DRESS  gingham midi | EARRINGS  fringe drops | SHOES  old wedges (similar)

Happy Memorial Day, y'all! I hope you're enjoying this beautiful May Monday! 

Whether you're attending an outside soiree or needing a day dress for your day off-- I have it here! I found this fun gingham hemmed midi on ASOS. I can't deny it, I'm a sucker for anything gingham, and this dress isn't any exception. You can currently get 20% off of your purchase on ASOS now through Tuesday by using the code, LIT20

I also currently CAN'T get over these fringe drop earrings. I've seen them being sold for close to $100, but thanks to Bauble Bar, you can score these beauties for less than $40! There's a variety of colors and of course I'm thinking about purchasing my next pair. They're super light and don't hurt your ears at the end of the day like most baubles do. Check the fabulous options here

Cheers to the three day weekend!

DRESS  embroidered mini | SHOES  navy wedges  | 
EARRINGS  gold drops | SUNNIES  aviators 

Happy Tuesday, y'all! Nothing like getting through the work week with a fabulous outfit. And this one takes the cake! Want a summer dress to wear on the daily? You have found it here. This Free People mini is one of my best finds so far this season. It comes in different colors found here and here, but of course, I'm partial to the magenta color. 

Now onto these Kate Spade wedges-- the main attraction. Sure, these aren't the most comfortable wedges in the world, but my goodness, they are adorable! And did I mention that they are still on sale?! Shop them here

Not only am I a big supporter of #shoplocal, I also love to #eatlocal. And FYI- if you don't check out 34:ate, you're doing lunch all wrong. 34:ate is a little piece of perfection located in the southern region of WV. It's my favorite lunch spot, and of course, the most quaint place to steal a picture! Check out more on this delectable find here

Wishing you a perfect week!
