Even though we're in the thick of summer at the moment (91 today!) it's never too early to start thinking about fall. The best part about Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is that it's not just summer items on sale. It's mostly brand new or new styles that will transition really well into the next season.

I've tracked down some fabulous Riding Boot and Ankle Bootie options that you might want to think about adding to your closet for a few reasons:
1) You're getting ahead of the curve by buying for autumn now
2) These pieces are on major sale so you're saving moo-lah for more fall outfits
3) A girl can never have too many boots!

So get your shopping on.. you've only got until the 4th to buy at these prices before they go back to... DunDunDun... full price (ick!) Happy Monday!

If there's one thing I love about my wardrobe it's that I try to make it as versatile as possible. As a glitter/sequin/bedazzled lover, I refuse to reserve my sparkling clothing for nighttime. Sure wearing a sequin pencil skirt is easy to throw on for a night out, but how about during the day at the office? Luckily I've worked in not-so-strictly-business-casual office environments so I'm able to really experiment with outfits. 

By pairing it with a comfy (and neon) tee I've totally make this glittering garment just right for daytime. Keep it easy with neutral accessories and easy layers of gold jewelry - you don't need a ton of additives since the skirt has so much personality. But one thing you can accessorize with every office outfit? Coffee!

Psssssttt.. Remember when I shared Half United with you a few weeks ago? This bullet shell necklace is their "Classic" design and comes in TONS of colors (like neon or pink) They even have a GLITTER one! I think I need to get that one ASAP. And the best part - they donate half their profits to help feed those in need!

Outfit Post: NOLA Flower Child

Pink Floral Crown, Black LuLu's Romper with Pockets, Sole Society Taupe Printed Rocio Wedges

Hippies & Halos Pink Rosebud Floral Crown - Music Festival Style

What to wear on Bourbon street in New Orleans, LA

Sole Society Rocio Wedge in Taupe

LuLu's "Under and Overlap" Romper c/o

Ginger + Liz "Show Off" (nails) and Sally Hansen "Pacific Blue" (toes) nail polish || Maybelline "Vivid Rose" Lipstick

Not only did I have the best time in New Orleans, but I had some fabulous backdrops to shoot some outfits in front of! The Streets of NOLA are amazing. With their cobblestone sidewalks, gorgeous terraces, and beautiful architecture, it all feels incredibly European. There's music on every corner and you want to eat at almost every restaurant you pass. 

I'm kind of going out of order here but Saturday night was filled with lots of excitement and another round on bourbon street. Since it was so stinking hot and humid outside (it rained a lot of our trip) this LuLu's romper was the perfect option to stay nice and cool but still be able to walk up and down "the strip". I think one of my favorite parts is the hidden snap near the the top - showing just the right amount of skin.

Instead of doing the traditional bachelorette sashes for the ladies, I wanted to gift the girls with something a bit more fun. So we all wore these fabulous halos from Hippies & Halos:

Top: Harmony (purple)
Left to Right: Elegance (white) || Canary (yellow) || Rosebud (pink) || Lime (green) || Red Red Wine (red) || Bubble Tea (light pink)
Bottom: Orange County (peach) Tangerine (orange)

I mean how cute are we? Aren't they just so much fun?! I had the best experience with Megan at H&H - she was super accommodating and a fast shipper. I'm so happy the girls loved them as much I did. Now I'm just waiting on my next concert so I can rock this floral crown again.

Outfit Post: Hot Pink Monday

The Impeccable Pig Dress with Contrast Zipper c/o (not online but available in stores - this option is available online)
Shoes via eBay (splurge option here at Nordstrom)
Nordstrom BP "Flash" Aviators || Daisy Gem Necklace c/o (exact option available here) || Michael Kors "Bradshaw" Watch in Rose Gold || Blu Bijoux Pearl Hammered Bracelets c/o Max & Chloe || Similar Number Rings
Julep "Eileen" Nail Polish || Maybelline "Vivid Rose" Lipstick

Phew.. I am back from my trip to New Orleans with a stuffed stomach, sore abs from laughing, a full heart and lots of dark circles from almost no sleep. So basically it was the greatest weekend ever. It was so great to spend some much needed time with my girlfriends. I miss them so much!

And while I was there I also couldn't stop raving talking about The Impeccable Pig. I'm sure they got sick of me saying TIP every time they asked me where something was from! My friend Amanda fell in love with this dress and plans on ordering it immediately - it's not available online but it still should be in stores. I love the cut and color - one other detail I forgot to take photos of is the contrasting zipper. So cute! Plus who couldn't use a little extra hot pink in their lives to brighten their Monday? 

Hope you had a great weekend! xo
