Hi everyone! Today is a very special Thursday as it is the first day of Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! That means if you are a Nordstrom card holder, you can shop the sale today, 8 days before the general public! So if you are not already a cardholder, I highly recommend you become one (click here to apply)! Not only do you get access to this amazing sale-of-all-sales well before the public, but you also earn points for every dollar spent! However, if you don’t want another credit card, have no fear, you can peruse my list here and make some notes on items you like, and shop on July 20th when the sale goes public!
For today’s Friday Favorites post I thought I would talk fashion. I haven’t done a fashion post in many weeks and I miss them! I love decorating and design inspiration, but when fall rolls around, I definitely fall into that “back to school” spirit and get in the mood to shop. Not a whole overhaul, just a little closet refresh. And one thing I love to buy, especially in the fall, is coats. I’m a coat lover (as I’ve shared before!) Seriously, I definitely should be living somewhere other than Southern California! However, an absolute classic coat that I didn’t have until last year is a classic trench coat. And it’s ironic since of all the coats that might be most appropriate for California winters, it would be the trench!
Plaid in fashion…..
|One of my favorite pins ever! Love the colorful scarf against the camel coat.|
|I’m seriously in love with this coat! Why am I such a coat person when I live in Southern California???!|
|Tartain pants! Adorable.|
|Perfect casual winter day outfit! And those red wellies!!|
Plaid in Christmas decor….=&3=&
|Possibly the cutest porch scene ever! Perfection. Via Craftberry Bush.|
|Love the pop this plaid gives to this otherwise very neutral room. And how cute are those window shades?|
|Just lovely. Via Craftaholics Anonymous.|
|This is a tablescape I did recently using my new plates from Home Goods. The whole tablescape (with sources) can be seen here.|
|Via Better Homes and Gardens.|
|Again, just a touch of plaid in a neutral room can be very sophisticated.|
|Via Pottery Barn.|
|Beautiful! Via In Good Taste.|
|Just a touch in this room really pops. Via Pottery Barn.|
|Love this tablesetting. Via Williams Sonoma.|
|Perfection! Love the peacoat, the loafers, and the black skinnies.|
|A plain black cotton blouse with dark jeans and simple heels, yet, the combination is so much more than the sum of its parts!|
|Love the texture added with the leather pants. And the grey flats are adorable!|
|Perfectly “casual chic” Saturday wear!|
|The lace blouse is gorgeous and adds so much texture. And I love that she paired the outfit with white pumps – so unexpected!|
|Here Olivia Palermo adds a feathered bag for texture. Interest is also added with the zippers on the black skinny jeans and the ribbon choker.|
|Love the all-black suit with the Adidas kicks!|
|Yes, yes, yes! Perfection!|
|I mean, is this not the cutest casual outfit ever?! And there they are with those frayed, cropped jeans!|
Another great outfit for a day out. And black is such a basic color to have them in.
Apparently I need to own them in red!
