However, even though I owned every single piece featured in the photo, there is NO WAY I would have come up with this darling combo on my own.
Once again, my pinning has paid off.

If ordering the jacket, make sure you select “regular”, “petite”, or “tall” accordingly.
My jacket is from Old Navy and sold out, but I think I might even like this new version better, also from Old Navy! It still has the gathered waist, but it doesn’t have the drawstrings at the bottom (which sometimes annoy me.)
shirt option from GAP and shirt option from J Crew Factory/ cut-offs /
earrings / necklace / watch / converse (order 1/2 size down)
At least I hope I adore it when I actually receive it. Because I ordered it on Friday night.
I love that it’s a popover instead of a true button up. I think they lay nicer and look better both tucked in and worn out. I also love the sleeves.
Click HERE for the shirt.
I ordered it in a small and am crossing my fingers it works. I think it will be a classic addition to my closet that I will wear for years and years to come. I wear my above shirt all the time, but I always end up looking messy by the end of the day.
I think THIS one will function better for me!
And I like that I could wear the sleeves down, or I can cuff them and use the tab to keep them put!
As you can see, wearing my new favorite earrings and necklace!

Now, before you go, I wanted to share a blog comment I received this week about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and make an Anniversary Sale Announcement!
Here’s the blog comment:
I got a Nordstrom debit card just bc of this blog. Last year I was a fairly new reader and I was reading y’alls accounts of this huge sale & I was like, what IS all this talk about?! (I’m a new Nordstrom shopper as well, and also bc of this blog.) So, anyway, I’m a cardholder for the purpose of getting early access. I’ve been waiting and waiting since Christmas for this July sale. I’m counting down the days!!
Oh, and I heard Nordstrom will send out a catalog a week ahead of time that outlines all the anniversary sale items, so we can plan. Is this true?! I thought it was just a free-for-all once midnight hit- but to actually know what will be on sale a WEEK BEFORE! I mean, whoot!!!
A catalog will come out with lots of the sale items highlighted (but not all). So yes, we can prepare appropriately. I promise, I will walk you through the entire sale!
BRING. IT. NORDSTROM.
And let me say again, the Kate Spade multi-color glitter studs are rumored to be included in the sale.
My guess is they will last 2 days TOPS during early access.
Here’s the Anniversary Sale announcement:
Last Friday I asked a random sales girl (that was as sweet as can be!) in the lingerie department at Northpark if any blardigans were going to be included in the Anniversary Sale.
AND. THEY. ARE.
AND they are striped this year!
Like big wide stripes.
She brought out a black and white merchandise sheet that had pictures of all the items in her department that were going to be included. I scanned it as fast as I could, and I did see Hanky Pankys as well as a couple of Natori bras.
So, there are several items we already know about that make GETTING A CARD worth it so you can shop early access on July 9th (and don’t have to wait until July 16th). And remember, if you don’t want to open a credit card, you can always get a debit card and experience the same early access perks. I don’t want anybody to miss out on PTMT favorite finds!
And I’m telling you, it is highly unlikely that the Kate Spade glitter studs or Blardigans still be in stock when the sale finally goes live to the public.

GET YOUR CARDS GIRLS.
AND GET YOUR MINDS RIGHT.
IT’S ABOUT TO BE GO TIME. 🙂
I put this pic on facebook over the weekend, but in case you missed it….
my new pajama pants arrived…they are STILL ON SALE…and I heart them.
Click HERE for the pants that also come
in solid grey and solid black!
Sorry the picture is super dark.
It was like 5:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, Scout had just nudged me awake to take him outside (which he never does), and I thought I should take a picture of my new pants before I forgot.
Oh, and I’m wearing one of my Madewell tees up top.
Mix and Match Mama says
Yes, yes, yes, yes, FREAKING YES! This is me…to a striped tee :).
Early access is July 9th not June 9th.
Erika Slaughter says
Love this look!!! Can't wait to see what you think about that new top. Excited to see your face today!!
I think you meant to say JULY 9 for early access 🙂 (you had written June!) no worries – canNOT wait to get me a striped blardigan!
Charming Lucy says
I love that look! I need a couple of buttons downs so thanks for the links. Have a blessed week! Susan
Got the Nordstrom debit last week!!! I had to refrain from getting the charge card. I knew it would be a bad idea after the fact haha!!!! Can't wait to have early access this year!
Renee Pelkey says
Just started to panic a little…….please tell me the nordy sale is in July not June! I'm praying I didnt miss it?
karate nurse says
Ok, you convinced me, I'm getting a card, dang it! That outfit is super cute and I'm all about a good pajama pant. I just bought a pair at Dillard's…Nottibianche slinky crop pants and have been wearing them every second I don't have to be in regular people clothes!
Oh, girl!! You look adorable in that outfit!!! Precious!! And, I can't wait for the anniversary sale!! So fun!!
Chasity Munn says
I think this is SUPER cute! And if it wasn't already 100 degrees here in Houston at SEVEN in the morning I would totally try it today! I'm going out of town this week so will pack my jacket and stripes to try it out.
I do think it would be really cute with your wedges or flat sandals instead of the Converse. 🙂
Nerd Girl says
I have a question – and I hope I'm not being too dense – but I really don't get wearing a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, and shorts. Like, are you hot, or are you cold? I think this look is really cute, but does it really translate into real world wear?
Hey there! Not a silly question at all! I do think it has to be the perfect kind of day in order for this outfit to work. This day happened to be breezy, and we were going to a movie (and I often take a jacket to the movie). But yes, there would be many days where this would make me a sweaty mess for sure! 🙂
How was the length in the pajama pants? I'm loving how cute they are, but I'm a shorty (5'3) and feel like they might drown me. I'm already a total klutz, so falling over my pants is a guarantee if they are too long.
I'm almost 5'4". The smalls were long on me, but not too long that I would trip on them. Do you have a Nordstrom card? If you do, I know this sounds silly, but you could get them hemmed for free! 🙂
Michele @ The Joyful Home says
Love these kinds of outfits. They're perfect for the rare not-crazy-hot days of summer. I actually wore something similar to this on Friday when I took my kids to see Inside Out. I looked cute and the movie was cute, too 🙂
Thanks for the update on the military jacket! ON is having a 35% off sale and I got it for less than $30 WITH shipping! Thanks so much, Sheaffer!!
Kim Kauffman says
A striped blardigan?? The only thing better would be if Sarah and I were buying it WITH YOU at the sale! So bummed we can't make it out for the sale. One day. 🙂 And those striped pj pants are super cute! Happy Monday, hope you have a great day!
Gail Wilson says
I nearly choked on my iced coffee when I read 'striped blardigan'! Could you tell if they were horizontal or vertical stripes? I am on the pear-shaped end of the fruit spectrum and big, wide horizontal stripes might make me bigger and wider…
If you want to nominate this for your 'stupid question of the day' award, I'd be honored.
Not a stupid question at all Gail! The one picture I saw was horizontal stripes, and I would say they were medium width. I cannot wait to see a real picture!!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I bit the bullet and applied for a card. Can not wait and will be saving all my spending money for this major event!!!
Lindsay Bagby says
Please start mimicking the models in your side by side pics…how funny would that be! You always look better than them anyway…but striking the same pose would be awesome!
What's your hashtag for MTA?? We need to get you #trending!
#welcome to my mind— hahaha! you are too funny.
LISTEN- AAHHH about the blardigain! I just the other day called N customer service to ask about a blardigan sale this year & she said it was NOT included! So, this is amazing news! I do not fault them(please, its Nordstrom, my favorite people) – it must be unclear early what exactly goes on sale, but i have been waiting all year to snag an original ombre blardigan on sale :)))
Lisa B says
Hi Sheaffer! Loving the shorts. What size and wash did you get? Did you have to wash them to get the ends to fray?
Hi Lisa! Mine are from a couple of years ago…but they are already frayed! I don't remember what "wash" they were. Sorry I'm not more help! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Chris T says
Hi, love this type of side by side look-more please!! also no glitter studs by kate spade at Nordstroms-phooey…
Jordyn Brown says
Okay, so I know this post is all about the first outfit…but can we talk about how perfect your PJs are?! I mean, only you could be completely fab at 5 AM while letting the dog out. So jelly!
The Southern Stylista
Hi – I have seen a pic of the blardigan on Pinterest as folks are starting to pin scanned photos of the catalog and of course it is amazing. Also Nordstrom confirmed on facebook that the online catalog will be available for viewing on June 25th!
The Brasfields says
I got my catalog in the mail today! There is a stripped blardagin and its ah-maaaazing!! So excited for the sale!!
I pretty much love any Nordstrom sale.
Because Shanna Said So says
Cannot wait for the sale!!! Bring it!! And fab job on the Pinterest remix…both of you girls look adorable!!
kimm atwood says
I'm loving a stiles blardigan. And I am so thankful I snagged the glitter studs in all three colors last year. I would highly recommend the multi color glitter studs for anyone who doesn't have them yet…they are fabulous and just perfect to wear during the holidays!!!!
