Like SERIOUSLY get your shop on.
“Why?” you ask….
Well, I follow Nordstrom on twitter (doesn’t everybody?) since we are like BFF.
I saw this picture and I got all panicky inside.

Before we get started today, my heart is so heavy for all of the families in Oklahoma that were victims of the tornadoes yesterday.
I was at The University of Oklahoma when the tornadoes hit Moore in 1999 (just 10 miles down the road), and the devastation was beyond comprehension.
And preliminary reports say that the storms yesterday were 3x as strong.
The families of the elementary school children are in need of all of our prayers.
Now, on to regularly scheduled programming.
First, the story.
It his highs, it has lows…..it really has it all.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry…..well, you get the point.
and is one of my biggest blog cheerleaders.
Like strangely excited probably.
There was a chance of rain that day, so I of course took my cue to slip mine on too! 😉
(I have only had mine 2 weeks, and I’ve already worn them 3 times!
I went back and forth for years if I should spend the money, and I’m so glad I finally did!
Totally worth the investment.)
boots HERE, military jacket HERE
Y’ALL! HUGE news!
My exact military jacket went 40% off just last night!
So, it’s now under $50, which is an astounding deal for a year round jacket that you will get soooo many miles out of. Just ask my friends and co-workers, I am wearing it constantly.
You will be SO happy to have this jacket in your closet. Plain and simple.
All sizes are available right now….but I am imagining they will sell out fast, so don’t hesitate!
I love my green one so much that I’m going to get the khaki one too! SO excited!!!!
I’m already imagining all of the outfits I will style with the khaki on. 🙂
For a size reference, my jacket is a SMALL, but if you don’t have a huge rib cage like me, you might be able to pull off an extra small.
Click HERE for both the green and the khaki jackets.
I know that some of you were waiting to pull the trigger on this jacket, now is the time!
(If you were friends with Shay, she would tell you that this justifies you buying both. Right Erika?) 🙂
When I got out of my car, she saw the big wrapped box, broke out into a huge smile and happily said “What is that?”
Then, it hit her.
She saw the size and the shape of the box (and the look on my face), and then she said with disbelief, “WHAT? IS? THAT?”
I’ll tell you what it was Shay. It was a box full of broken dreams.
Still, I gotta say, they looked super cute on her and she was THRILLED to get them!
(She was able to cancel her order. Whew.)
Click HERE for the boots.
Good story, right?
We could not believe that she ordered them about an hour before I was set to give them to her.
What are the odds?!?
THANK YOU SHAY FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!
MAY YOU THINK OF ME EACH AND EVERY TIME
THERE IS EVEN A CHANCE OF SPRINKLES!
(Cause let’s be honest…if there is even a chance of sprinkles….we will both be wearing them.)
I wore these shorts 3 days in a row this past weekend. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
You don’t do that.
Yeah, neither do I. I was just kidding.
(a Nordstrom exclusive that will eventually be phased out)
And don’t you just LOVE the little brass discs?
(fyi: I’ve been to several other Targets since buying this one, and they no longer seem to be in the stores. I guess they are only left online, unless you get lucky and find one that has been returned.)
Celebrities love her stuff, and you can always spot it on t.v.
If any of you feel like you need to convince me that I NEED this bag, please feel free.
Or, if any of you would like to coordinate a bake sale to raise the funds for me to order this purse, again – feel free.
It’s a fun and bright tribal pattern. I like the black the best.
Kate really knows how to speak my love language.
click HERE and type in “Michael Kors bag sale” in the search bar.
You won’t believe the bags that are on sale…most up to 40% off.
The Hamilton Large Canvas tote is GORGEOUS.
Okay, enough of my bag obsession.
I randomly tried on THIS swimsuit cover up. It is pricey, but I loved it.
IT JUST WENT 40% OFF TOO!!!!!!
THIS one is knit and oh so cute.
It comes in 16 colors and has lots of great reviews.
I used to shy away from pockets on the boobs, but for some reason I don’t mind them anymore.
And in case you haven’t been able to tell, I am SUPER in to button-ups right now.
I’ve purchased 3 this year, and I wear them all the time.
I really like that this one is knit and that it has 3/4 sleeves that button up.
I think it looks great with shorts, but I also imagine it with white skinny jeans and some great sandals for a totally pulled together look.
It’s under $50, which I think is a GREAT price for a piece that will be a staple in your wardrobe.
(In fact, this is one of those shirts that I can see me buying 2 of. Do you guys do that? If I really REALLY like something, I do not even hesitate to buy it in 2 colors.)
THIS one is silk and very nice.
Great reviews and 17 different colors.
Also great with white skinnies and nice sandals.
And it’s nice enough to wear with suit pants and heels.
And…I FOUND ANOTHER OATMEAL LINEN BLAZER!
A handful of you had e-mailed or left a comment saying you thought my blazer (found HERE) was going to be a little short on you. Most of you talked about having long torsos.
This is NOT a problem that I have.
And I gotta tell you, I don’t feel sorry for you long torso people. 😉
Well, I found THIS one!
It’s the same great oatmeal color, and it’s still a nice slim fit, but it’s longer.
I really really liked it.
Brayden is JUST AS COMFORTABLE and SASSY as Tiara.
However, Brayden is braided leather and has an open back, and I think has a more casual feel.
Brayden is so new that there aren’t yet any reviews, but I’m going to let Tiara vouch for Brayden.
Brayden is totally legit.
Two things about these 2 wedges:
I know SEVERAL of you were having trouble with your order of the Tiara wedge. Some were told they were on backorder, and some were never received. Now, I’m not sure about this, but I think there must have been a glitch in the system somehow.
One of my friends said she received an e-mail saying her putty pair were on backorder for another month. However, she went on and ordered a 2nd pair because they were no longer showing as backordered on the site, and the most recent pair she ordered has already shipped out.
I also had a reader e-mail me that she called Nordstrom saying she had never received hers, and they immediately shipped a pair out.
So…if you have a pair that are on backorder…I don’t think a call would hurt.
For the life of me, I cannot decide if I want the blue or the brown Brayden.
I now only have 1 color (putty) of the Tiara, so I feel totally justified getting the Brayden too.
(At one time I had the yellow too, but every time I put the yellow on, I ended up changing them out and wearing the putty. So I took the yellow back.)
Anyway, brown or blue?
What do you think?

Also, before I go….I want to say “hello!” to Kristi!
I met another reader (again, she was sweet and darling of course!) named Kristi while at Nordstrom on Friday!
Kristi got a picture of us with her phone, but I forgot to get one with my camera (bad blogger). Kristi, e-mail the pic and I will post it!
I just love meeting all of you girls that are sweet enough to say something to me when you see me.
It totally makes my day.
