The Coveted


Before I delve into the items that caught my eye this week, there’s a huge event worth mentioning: Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale. It’s your chance to snag spring and summer merchandise at up to 40% off. Some of my favorites include a black trapeze dress, a work-appropriate satchel, a “Nudist” sandal knockoff (or get the real version in navy on sale here), and simple leather sandals by Tory Burch (metallics available here). Now that that’s squared away, here’s what caught my eye this week:

  • A zigzag eyelet shell in navy. Aside from this top, I’m disappointed in J.Crew’s new arrivals this month. Who’s going to pay $110 for an ugly yarn and seed bead choker? The product description says, “So if someone asks if you made it yourself, you have our permission to say yes.” I wouldn’t take credit for it and evidently J.Crew doesn’t want to either. And then there’s this. What the hell? And these! Because plastic in the summer is always a good idea.
  • Ben-Amun statement earrings. In fact, there are many gorgeous new arrivals from the designer on The Outnet right now. Most earrings are under $100.
  • A sweet little notebook. I’d like to start bringing a journal on vacations to record daily activities and observations. I usually assume Facebook is good enough, but I’m forgetful and a notebook is much more romantic.
  • Culottes! They’re so ridiculous, but I still want a pair. White would look pretty with that J.Crew shell… 😉 Shop a selection of white culottes and other white pants here.
  • A navy bucket bag. Navy is by far my favorite color, but I have yet to add a bag in the hue to my collection. I’m also obsessed with this bag. I saw it at the Tory Burch boutique last month and haven’t stopped thinking about it.
  • Iridescent slides on sale! I also love these and the iridescent version of the heels I wore to a wedding last month.

    LOVE that navy top!! But before I get any more summer navy pieces I need navy sandals! Ha ha. Impossible to find a pair I like.
    And grr, Nordstrom sale, why must you tempt me! Trying not to shop! (Although, maybe they have some navy sandals, haha, the one thing I’ll allow myself to buy this month)

    All of these pieces are to die for. I love that navy eyelet top and those statement earrings. Your J. Crew comment had me dying laughing too!

    Love that bucket bag and the navy color is such a great neutral for every outfit! Definitely a wardrobe staple.

  • Rachelle

    Love these sandals, I’m trying to put my blinders on and ignore all the sales lol.


  • Chrystin Aponte

    Love the iridescent items in your post this week, especially that cute little notebook! xx

  • Lyddiegal

    Now those are some statement earrings!

    Also, I’m finding my defenses are weakening. I may have to get a bucket bag.
