Delight of the Day 11/7

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I spent my evening last night browsing the Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale. There were a lot of awesome steals on designer goods (I finally ordered a Burberry scarf, and my favorite Christmas present from last year is on major sale!), and there were a lot of inexpensive stocking stuffers for my friends and fam. I thought I’d share some of my favorite steals with you!

p.s. Don’t forget about the Talbots Friends & Family sale! Time to stock up on cashmere sweaters.

Homecoming Attire

Homecoming

For the first time since I graduated (it’s been four years already – yikes!), I’m going to homecoming! I’ve considered going a few times, but bad weather and work have always gotten in the way. This year, I made a resolution to finally make my way back. I love Pittsburgh – especially in autumn. Now, I know you Southern girls are shaking your heads wondering where my sundress and bows are, but we do it a little differently up North. Mostly because it’s freezing.

Nordstrom Clearance Sale

I posted about a bunch of sales last weekend, but I keep coming back to the Nordstrom Clearance Sale. Some of our favorite brands are 40% right now! Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Burberry that you can actually afford? Yes, please! While you’re there, you can also check out some of my fall favorites:

Thanksgiving Day Outfit

One of the best parts of holidays is getting to dress up. I mean, spending time with family, of course. The Boy and I will actually be on vacation over Thanksgiving, but, before we made those plans, I already had an outfit picked out. I ordered these pumps last year after my trip to Europe thinking I would totally have places to wear them, but Pennsylvania’s dressy scene is a bit limited. So limited that I’ve worn them once in a year. Anyway, I’d make an outfit around them this year and include a pair of skinny khakis, a cute button down, and a sweater on top. I’d finish it with pearls and a watch for that traditional look, and gobble up! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Delight of the Day 11/11

Today’s Delight of the Day is one of the best steals I’ve seen on Nordstrom lately (and there have been some good ones). This Burberry leather strap watch was originally $495 but is now down to $296.98! In the picture below, I have the watch directly to the right of this one, which I love very much, but you can’t exactly where it with everything. This simple leather watch is perfect for everyday looks. J, if you’re reading this, it’s the perfect Christmas gift!

Tory Burch + Neiman Sales

Both Tory Burch and Neiman Marcus are having huge sales right now, and I did NOT want you to miss out! I’m snagging a few gifts for The Boy and my sister, but I think I deserve one or two things, right? p.s. Tory and Neiman both have incredible gift packaging, so definitely opt for that if your wrapping skills are as awful good as mine!

Fall Essentials

It’s unofficially the most wonderful season of the year – fall! One of my favorite things about fall growing up was back-to-school shopping. While I may not be going back to school, I’m totally all about fall shopping. For me, it’s all about riding boots (may my old ones rest in peace), quilted jackets, and a great neutral leather tote. What’s on your list?

Delight of the Day 8/14

You may have seen on my Instagram that I finally took the plunge and ordered a Burberry quilted jacket. I’ve been obsessed for quite some time now, and I decided I needed to reward myself after my midyear review. You can order them from a couple of different places: Neiman, Nordstrom, and Burberry, all at $595.

However, after ordering, an idea occurred to me: the children’s sizes (priced at $220) would also probably work. For reference: I ordered an extra small in the Burberry women’s jacket, which fits extremely similar to the size 14 in girl’s. (I have broad shoulders, so the 12 was slightly too tight there for me.) I’m probably going to have it tailored a bit for a slimmer fit, but, with the amount of money I’m saving, $50 at the tailor is nothing.

Nordstrom carries the black version through a size 12 (make sure you select Big Girls). If Neiman is your store, they also carry it in black, but only up to a size 10. (They currently have a $50 off promo with code KIDSGIFT!) Burberry goes all the way to a 14, and they sell black, red, and navy,  so that’s where I ended up ordering. Now, let’s enjoy the last few weeks of summer so we can wear our coats sooner!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Part II
