I absolutely love going to the mall. Even on days where I don’t even buy anything I just love seeing whats new. I could honestly peruse Nordstrom for 5 hours. So today I decided to check out Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale at the Galleria in Dallas. Usually I prefer Northpark’s Nordstrom (mostly because they carry Christian Louboutins), but today Charlee was dying to go to the American Girl Doll store (which I totally don’t blame her for that place is amazing <3)
One of the biggest decisions you make on a shopping day is what to wear. You want something that’s easy to take on and off for dressing rooms, something that’s comfortable because you’ll be doing lots of walking, but also something chic and stylish so the big brand stores take you seriously! This was my look: cut off white denim shorts (so hot), and a loose blouse slightly unbuttoned – taking some tips from sincerely jules here – and these rad sandals!
While I was on vacation I wore my gold flip flops everywhere. To the beach, around the resort, and to the pool. I think in getting them wet, it made the leather stretch out and they don’t even stay on my feet anymore! So I picked these Topshop lace-up soft leather open-toe sandals.
I’m hoping it’s not too obvious, but this blouse is actually a dress! I picked it up on sale for dirt cheap at Forever 21, but when I got home and tried it on it was wayyyyy too short. The front and the back are long enough, but since it comes up a little on the sides, if I lift my arms at all you can see my underwear! I think maybe it’d make great dress on someone shorter, but being 5’10” I can’t tell you how many dresses I’ve turned in to tops! Just tie a little knot on the side to get rid of some excess fabric – and tuck it in!
I rarely wear hats, just because with the wind and heat they always bug me. Despite this I brought this fedora to the Dominican and fell back in love! Isn’t it great when you pull out an old item and it feels brand new again 🙂
