Nordstrom Sale | Wishlist

Hi loves!

Yesterday I woke up to snow outside my window which of course got me in the holiday spirit. I had the day off from teaching the kiddos so I spent it by cleaning out my closet to prepare for some new winter styles and I put up all of our Christmas decorations! Naturally, I was inspired to search for some great holiday looks for you guys.

Nordstrom is having a sale through November 18th and I am literally in HEAVEN! There are so many great styles for the holiday season. I’m sure your friends wouldn’t be mad if you got them any of these as a holiday gift — I would be your best friend if you did!

I am loving red and green because duh, CHRISTMAS! Velvet materials have that warm, fuzzy feeling that reminds me of winter parties and I might need (I mean.. I NEED) a velvet piece to add to my wardrobe.

Many of these styles come in multiple colors and lots of sizes are still available.

♥ The Cold Stripe Sweater is my must have on this list!

I am always freezing, therefore I am living off sweaters and layers recently. This sherpa is surprisingly warm and there are so many ways to style it! ⇒ Show me the styles!

In order to stay warm in a cute skirt, I would pair it with a pair of knee high boots. These are also on sale and they are genuine suede! ⇒ I need boots!

Nordstrom Boots on Sale

Hi loves!

Boots are my go to shoe in the fall and I am recently loving knee high boots since they keep my legs warmer in this cold Chicago weather.

Guys, I never ever shop at Nordstrom because, frankly, it is out of my price range. So why am I sharing this post with you?? I would never steer you all in the wrong direction or in a direction that empties your wallets in the process— I am just a broke teacher after all.

I am sharing these babies with your because they are currently on sale and I saved over $75 on them!


They are the Vince Camuto Kochelda Over the Knee Boot and they come in 3 colors! I wore them all day today for the first time. They stood up to standing all day in my classroom with my preK kiddos and running a 45 minute recess duty. Not once was I in pain. My feet literally felt like I was walking on butter — I don’t know if that sounds like something someone would really look for in a shoe, but golly am I glad I found it!

I am wearing the color taupe with a regular size calf. True to size and many sizes still available.

Summer Fashion Trends All Under $31

Some summer trends I am loving and can’t wait to purchase all under $31. Also, when you click my images and purchase $30 or more, you will receive free shipping!


Not much need be said about why florals are trending… flowers and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly!



Maxi Dresses

My personal favorite summer trend is maxi dresses. I am not a huge fan of short skirts or cocktail dresses, but maxi dresses I can rock! The reason these are trending, and I feel always will be trending, is because they are comfy as well as versatile. Adding a simple statement piece of jewelry dresses it up and wearing simple sandals dresses it down.



Stripes are huge this summer and can be super flattering when the pattern is vertical, making your body appear longer than it really is. When in doubt, I always go for a striped outfit. You can see my striped outfits in my blog post here.

Floral Fashion

Hi loves!

Florals are so in right now and I have the perfect floral playsuit for you!

Super soft, light, flowy material make this my go to outfit for a hot summer day. It was 85 degrees out during my photoshoot and I was confident enough to hang this outfit back in my closet for another day (kinda gross, but why wash something that doesn’t smell?) I also love that this floral robe has a Bohemian style while still being high fashion enough to wear outside of the typical boho setting.

Although this playsuit is super low cut, I have never worn a low cut outfit that I feel more comfortable in —i.e. one where I don’t have to keep checking if my boob popped out.

This outfit comes with a belt that you can tie around your waist wherever looks best on your body type. I tied mine at my waist line.
