It’s Friday, so y’all know what that means! It’s time to link up with Erika, Andrea, and Narci to let everybody know what some of my summer style favorites are right now.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Let’s kick today off with a little Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prep! Click HERE to see the page I’ve dedicated to ALL THINGS ANNIVERSARY SALE (you can also find the tab in red on the upper right hand of this screen). Hop over to see a quick little guide that has everything you need to know and a link to the online catalog. Just think of me as your Anniversary Sale Tour Guide and know that we are going to have a whole lot of fun during the sale!
And as always, I’ll be hosting a giveaway for Special Mamas! This will be the 5th ANNUAL SPECIAL MAMA – NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE GIVEAWAY! If you know of a wonderful mama of a child with special needs (or if you are one yourself), I’ll be taking somebody local on a $1,000 shopping spree during the sale (must be willing to meet in Frisco or Dallas)! Click HERE to see a little peek into last year’s shopping spree with the sweet Jennifer, and stay tuned for details on this year’s giveaway.
Summer Embroidered Top
This embroidered baby doll top is a new favorite for sure! Look how fun and flattering it is!
I’m wearing a small, and it has plenty of room and is perfectly swingy. I went with the black, but it comes in 3 other great colors. I like it worn casually here with shorts and flat sandals. (FYI: I have a post coming up with ModCloth next week, but I’ve incorporated some of their pieces into today’s outfits to give you a little preview. In the picture below, the strappy gold sandals were sent to me as part of the collab! I love the gold and they are super affordable at $35, but I wish I would have sized up a 1/2.)

I love the top casually like above, but it also looks great dressed up a bit with white jeans and wedges! These are my favorite white jeans (they have fantastic reviews) and they are 40% OFF! They are true to size (I’m wearing a 27), but size down if between sizes.

Summer Outfits from The Find
Last week on facebook I told you that I was excited to start working with the online store The Find. Well, Emily (the founder) sent me a box of stuff that arrived on Saturday, and I wore this dress to church the next morning!
You can use the code STMT10 for 10% OFF your entire purchase, and I have several great items to share with you today!
Okay, girls. This navy dress is awesome. Here’s what you need to know. First of all, IT’S ONLY $39. WHAT? I KNOW. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.
It’s comfy, true to size (I’m wearing a small), is totally figure flattering, AND IT HAS POCKETS. #andilovepockets I didn’t wear a slip with it this past weekend, but I felt like it might be a bit sheer in direct sunlight, so I will wear a half slip with it from now on. (My 1/2 slip is reallllllllllly old, but this one is very similar.)

And look at this embroidered off the shoulder dress! This one is a total show stopper. The embroidery is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the scalloped hem and sleeves. Oh, and it’s fully lined! This dress is ONLY $49, but it looks much more expensive. I love it paired with the turquoise earrings and the sunshine yellow clutch.

And if you want to carry a bigger bag instead of just a clutch, check out this one with the brass ring (and the cross body option). The bag and the turquoise earrings are both ModCloth finds.

And I’m legit obsessed with this new embroidered top (remember, 10% OFF with code STMT10) and these amazing earrings. You know I’m a sucker for embroidery, and this top is adorable. It’s got great detail around the neckline, sleeve, and hem. You can use the STMT10 10% OFF code on this top, the above two dresses, and all other items from the site as well.
And here’s some big news! My sweet friends at Accessory Concierge are giving STMT readers early access to their July 4th sale. Use the code AMERICA for 40% OFF their entire site. 40%! WOWZA! The earrings are obviously included in the sale.

Look how cute it is on!
Size References: I’m wearing a small in the top which is true to size for me (if you have a smaller chest, you could probably size down) and my regular size 27s in my favorite denim shorts (size down if between sizes). Size up a 1/2 size in the gold slides.

And here’s a close up of the earrings. What’s not to love.
And because of the SITEWIDE 40% OFF SALE (Code: AMERICA), I thought I would showcase 2 other pairs of awesome new statement earrings today. All 3 ARE ALL LIGHT AS A FEATHER, and they all pack quite a punch! Here they are all side by side, but you’ll get to see them paired with new and different outfits below.

Here are all 3 earrings, plus a necklace and my favorite A.C. bracelets to stack. Just click on what you are interested in:
Accessory Concierge Sale Early Access
I want to make sure you understand what a big deal this is that we are getting early access. Accessory Concierge has not yet released this code to the masses, but they are letting Sheaffer Told Me To readers have access to the code before everybody else gets access next week. There’s a possibility that some of their inventory might sell out, so it’s awesome we’ve got first dibs! Again, the code AMERICA will get you 40% OFF the entire site!
So, in honor of the sale, I wanted to show y’all some new pieces that the gals at A.C. were kind enough to send me in several different outfits. I did lots of outfit planning this week, and then next week you will get to see me in these outfits!
This chiquita necklace is SO MUCH FUN. Colorful, light weight, and it screams summer. I’m wearing it here with a solid color tee (click HERE if you want to see me in the tee and the shorts) and my favorite cut offs. And look how cute it makes an otherwise simple outfit! You can spiff up just about all of your summer outfits with this necklace.
The 3 products in the picture are really helping me up my summer game: 1) I bought the red lipstick in preparation for my Get Festive for the 4th post, and I was told it was the perfect red for so many different skin tones. I’m LOVING it (“Ruby Woo” is the shade), and I feel like it totally changes my look for certain outfits. 2) I don’t remember where I saw the body blur, but I use it for days that I need some color and don’t have time to use self tanner. It’s kind of like a body tint I guess, but the color can be immediately washed off. The only time it’s ever rubbed off on my clothes was when I threw on some white jeans to grab a picture for the blog. In the pictures above with the embroidered top, I was seriously pale. But I put on the body blur, let it dry, and then put on some of the 3) coconut body glow on top….AND MAGIC! Scroll up to see how tan my legs look in the picture above.

The second I saw this SUMMER FRIDAYS tee online, I knew I had to have it! I sized up to a medium for a relaxed fit, but if you don’t have a larger chest, you can totally stick with your regular size.
If you see me on any Friday this summer, I can pretty much guarantee I’ll be wearing this baby. #summerfridayuniform To show you the versatility of this tee, I’ve already planned 3 separate outfits with it.
SUMMER FRIDAYS OUTFIT #1
Pairing it with this fun necklace and my gold slides was a no brainer.

SUMMER FRIDAYS OUTFIT #2
I switched out the rose gold slides for the red patent flip flops (size up a 1/2 in both) and went with a wooden statement earring! I know it’s hard to believe, but these earrings really are incredibly light. Remember, I’m wearing them above in the side by side collage with the embroidered top if you want to see the size on me.

SUMMER FRIDAYS OUTFIT #3
And it’s of course precious with white jeans (40% OFF RIGHT NOW!) as well. AND THESE EARRINGS, Y’ALL! Hot pink, a navy type tie die, and bamboo!!!! DYING!

This next top looks like it was made for these earrings. It’s a soft cotton and is so incredibly comfortable. I have a small, and I love the baby doll fit, but I’m actually going to order an x-small to see if I like it less blousy. The small is VERY generous sizing, so I think most people are probably going to want to size down.
This top also comes in a navy option, and you can get it in plus size!

And look! I found a tank in our favorite green! It’s of course as cute as can be with the chiquita necklace.

Okay, last flat lay of the day. This dress is PERFECT for vacation, and the tassel earrings look great with it. It’s not lined, but it’s not see thru either. This would absolutely be a great dress to throw on and wear to dinner on vacation or even just to the pool. I have the size 6 (which says it fits like a US 2-4).

And because I’m obsessed with the earrings, I wore them again while running around town yesterday.
And I thought they really kicked up the cute factor of my basic tee and cut offs! And let’s be honest, my rose gold slides didn’t hurt either (size up a 1/2).
Favorite Summer Pajamas on Sale
GREAT SALES are of course always a favorite around here.
My adorable striped pajamas just went 50% OFF, making them only $34.75 for the set! They are very well made and just as cute as can be. They also come in a royal blue stripe and a navy blue stripe. I sized up to a medium for a super comfy and relaxed fit. Actually, a ton of items just went 50% OFF, including $17 “a real firecracker” tee, a $9 striped tote, and some $10 flip flops!
When I posted this pic on facebook last night, I had somebody ask about the rug. It’s from Lulu and Georgia and no longer available. HOWEVER, they have 20% OFF ALL THEIR RUGS right now!

I had a reader (Hi, Brittany!) e-mail me about this dress. She says she owns it in all 5 colors. Thought y’all might want to know about it because it’s an incredible deal.

One of my favorite things is when I receive e-mails and messages from y’all. I especially love it when I hear from readers that they have other friends and family that read the blog…and that they all enjoy it together! I think that’s so much fun when people connect because of the blog!
This group of girls was on a girl’s trip, and several of them showed up with the MUST HAVE wedges! They are all teachers at Avalon Elementary School in Orlando, Florida! And they all read my blog!
A huge shout out to Kelly, Christy, Carey, Amanda, and Wendi. Thank you Carey for the message and for the picture! Carey – I love your shirt too!

April Parrish says
The red embroidered off the shoulder dress is so pretty on you. Love it. I have to agree with you 100% about the best strapless bra ever…I actually wore mine last night and when I got home to take it off I thought to myself how comfortable and perfect it was. I used to hate to have to wear a strapless bra…but not this one.
Have a great weekend!
Regarding your body blur, what shade do you use? I know there are about 3 different shades to choose from. Sorry if I missed it. Thanks!
Hi, Rebecca! Mine is the cafe creme! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Linda E says
I always love checking out you finds! Thanks to you, a new pair of Kendra Scott earrings are on there way to me and at a sale price! Score! BTW, I was in LOFT last night and they told me that they will be changing to a 30-day return policy. Thought you might want to pass that bit of information on.
Hi Sheaffer! I so look forward to your posts throughout the week. You have truly inspired me to up my game! I adore the embroidered top in this post, but I can’t get the link to work? I googled and found their website online 🙂 ordering now! Thank you so much!!
Hi, Bethany! SO SORRY I had the wrong link! I fixed it, but I’m glad you found it!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Keisha Dawson says
It made me so happy to see your beautiful face on The Find Auction posts on Instagram yesterday!
You just look stunning in black or navy!
Sheri Shimogaki says
Thank you for that long post with all the great ideas on summer outfits and accessories!!! I absolutely love reading your blog and have much of my wardrobe because of you. God Bless!! Sheri from Portland, OR 🙂
Gail W. says
Thanks for the Accessory Concierge code. Just bought a pile of stuff, along with the Sims pendant – can’t wait to get my haul!!
Jessica R Tribbet says
Hey Sheaffer! Do you know if the resin earrings on AC are heavy? They have a bunch of them and some look pretty big. And I can’t do heavy. Thank you!!!
Hi, Jessica! I texted my friend at A.C. She said “most all are very light. There are a few really large ones that are of course a bit heavier.” Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Laurie S says
Happy Weekend Sheaffer! You look so darling in everything! My fave flat lay was the one with the kelly green tank – you look fab in that color! And of course, I couldn’t resist smiling at your striped pajama picture with your furry Buddy (or Charlie?)
Kristie W says
The Summer Fridays tee is so fun! So much great stuff in one post.
I got the red patent sandals this week from the post you featured last week. I love them!
cassie [hi sugarplum] says
Obsessed with that halter style shirt on you!!! Sass-A-Frass!! And of course the off the shoulder is DARLING!!
If you’ve said it once, you’ve said it a million times…the BEST strapless bra eva’ is the Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra by WACOAL. It only took me a year or so to bit the bullet and buy the $65.00 bra. Geesh, my girls didn’t know what they were missing!!! This bra truly is amazing. Everything just stays in place. I think I could almost do jumping jacks or cartwheels and the sucker wouldn’t move. Thanks Sheaffer for always being right. :0)
