It’s been WAYYYYYY too long since our last Shopping with Sheaffer and Shay, but life just got in the way. Actually, it kinda got in the way this time too, so we’re changing things up a bit today to make it work. Shay was at Stonebriar and I was at Northpark (lots of reasons why), but we checked in with each other lots with texts and pictures!
So, today is Shopping with Sheaffer and Shay: Virtual Edition!
She hit up Nordstrom, LOFT, and Banana.
She wanted to hit GAP too, but the air conditioner was out. Buh-bye GAP.
True to form, I stuck with Nordstrom and a tad bit of Anthropologie thrown in
for good measure. What can I say? I’m a creature of habit. And I know what I like.
I of course planned on hitting up LOFT too, but I just ran out of time.
Still, you should check them out. They are having a BANG, BOOM, POW sale with lots of great deals! Tops from $6, Shorts from $20, Dresses from $25, Sandals from $15, Accecesories from $6.
If you want to see some of my favorite LOFT items right now, click HERE to see my post where I try on lots of items that are currently available.
I’ve received lots of great feedback about THIS jumpsuit on the blog, and then I put it on instagram last night and got even more great feedback from girls that have already received theirs and are LOVING it!
For size reference, I was wearing a 2. I probably could have taken a 4 in the chest, but I
But before we start on the shopping trip, I want to share a new find with you.
My little sister texted me earlier this week to tell me about THIS.
You know I LOVE my new NARS tinted moisturizer (click HERE if you want to see my Before and After make-up post where I fell in love with the NARS product), but I love it even more with THIS.
It seriously glides over my skin and makes for a flawless make-up application.
Please disregard my tooth in the 3rd picture. I promise I don’t have a brown tooth.
It must have just been a shadow or something.
I have no idea, but I wasn’t about to make the collage again.
Sometimes you just have to post a picture where it looks like you have a brown tooth.
I think Confucius said that.
I’ve shown the 4 steps for using the blender in the collage below:
1) wet the blender 2) towel dry it a bit 3) glide it over your skin to apply your make-up
4) put it back in it’s container to let it dry.
That’s it. Easy Peasy.
Here are just a couple of reviews on the beauty blender.
is a game changer. Crazy to think something so simple could make such a
giant difference. Better than any brush, sponge, pad, etc for
foundation application. Why, oh why, did I wait so long to purchase?
LOVE the Beauty blender! I started using it about 6 months ago and it
gives you such a flawless finish with out the streaks of a foundation
brush! If you dont have one you need to get one and you’ll see the

OKAY. NOW IT’S TIME TO SHOP.
Let’s kick off the shopping day in the shoe department.
Full disclosure, I spent A LOT of time in the shoe department, but that was partly because of all of the requests I’ve had for me to talk about shoes other than wedges!
So, you asked…and you shall receive!
I present to you: SHOES THAT AREN’T WEDGES!
I literally walked in Nordstrom and saw THESE immediately. OH MY.
Mama likey a lot.
I MEAN! LOOK AT THEM!
I immediately texted Shay.
Next I hit up the sale table.
I’ve featured THESE dv sandals before, and now they’re on sale!
I like all of the colors, but I’m totally partial to the blue and white stripe.
They are 20% off making them ONLY $27.96! WHAT A DEAL! And look how cute they are!
I found myself really liking THESE dv studded flat sandals, even though they aren’t really my typical style. The cork bottoms and the studs are cool!
And listen….they come in 5 other colorways INCLUDING LEOPARD!!!!
Actually, dv has a lot of sandals on sale! Click HERE to see the awesome selection!
One more styles of shoes ON SALE!
Lots of you girls have e-mailed me about finding a lower heeled sandal that is still a wedge.
THESE could be a great option for you! They come in 5 colorways and are super cute!
I love the look of the wedge with the rope detailing, and the strap is cute too!
There are a lot of lower wedges out there…but I just don’t like a lot of them. These I like! ALOT!
Click HERE for these great sandals under $60!
I was so excited about these next shoes that I had to text Shay the pic on the left.
See? As evidenced by the size of my eyes, I was excited.
Ugg LEOPARD flip flops HERE. They are ON SALE too for 33% OFF!
These would be PERFECT everyday sandals that would literally go with everything in your closet!
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these leopard UGGs.
Click HERE for the black, silver, and leopard studded sandals on the right! Unique and fun!
Click HERE for studded sandals on the left.
(Click HERE for a studded option from Steve Madden that is 50% OFF! Limited sizes left.
And HERE for a pair of featured before that are now 30% OFF!)
Click HERE for the zippered sandals on the right.
They look great in black too! I thought the zippers were so cool!
Look at these fun and brightly colored sandals from UGG!
You can barely see it in my pictures, but the sole matches the color of the braid. Cute!
These scream “SUMMMMMMERRRRRR!”
Okay…..so I finally left the shoe department.
This next item got me seriously excited.
If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know I got a black jacket last year that I absolutely adored. However, the stock must have been small, because almost immediately after posting it the very first time it sold out. And it never re-stocked.
And some of you girls felt like it was the jacket that got away. 🙂
Well…this new jacket is the 2014 version of that jacket.
Click HERE for the jacket.
For size reference, I was wearing a small.
In the picture I was wearing it with SOME AWESOME PANTS (that I’m saving for another post, get excited), and THIS tee from James Perse.
The girl that was helping me brought me the tee and I about died when I saw it’s price tag ($95), but oh my goodness it was like butter. Do any of you girls have James Perse tees?
(I was also wearing THESE earrings, THIS necklace, and THIS bracelet.)
The jacket is light weight, it’s a cute fit, and it comes in 3 colors.
As I was taking pictures of myself in the above jacket, a text rolled in from Shay.
And I kid you not, she was in the exact same jacket, but in green. Hilarious.
So I also took a quick stroll through the jewelry department.
And I fell in love. Like want to marry these bracelets IN LOVE.
Click HERE for my Stella and Dot gold spikey bracelet. Click HERE for the Nordstrom knock-off.
Here are the ones I’m dying over. I’m pretty OBSESSED.
Click HERE for the turquoise round stone bracelet. So different and unique!
Click HERE for the brown leather beaded snap bracelet. PERFECT for stacking.
Click HERE for the raw stone hematite bracelet. Sooooo pretty!
Are you guys loving these as much as I am????? Because again, OBSESSED.
You guys know I stack my Sequin bracelets all spring and summer long, but I don’t really wear them in fall and winter. I feel like these bracelets below are really year round bracelets, but they are going to be perfect for fall and winter.
Did I mention? OBSESSED.
And are you totally dying over THIS necklace, because you should be.
And guess what. It’s $24.
TWENTY FOUR DOLLARS.
It’s much prettier in person that it is on the site. The colors are much more vibrant.
And my shirt is French Connection, is ON SALE, and can be found HERE. I love it so much!
I mean, it’s navy stripes. So yeah, I love it.
I finally made myself leave Nordstrom, and I headed to Anthropologie.
Before we get to Anthro, I want to highlight some items I dug around for last night after getting an e-mail about NEW MARKDOWNS AT NORDSTROM!
My nude patent flats are on sale again for 20% OFF! Click HERE!
Check out THIS metallic Kate Spade wallet that is 33% OFF. I’ve had my eye on it for awhile. My sister has it, and every time she takes it out of her bag I want it.
Click HERE for a pair of Kut skinny jeans for under $50.
Click HERE for 10 different Michael Kors watches that are all 40% OFF!
Click HERE for 5 different pairs of MK moccasins that are between 20-50% off!
Y’all…there really are A TON of new sale items.
So I would suggest you just go and type things in the search bar you’ve been interested in to see if anything pops up. For example, if you have been thinking about getting a Kate Spade bag, go to the search bar and just type in “Kate Spade Bag Sale“. Over 40 items will pop up between 33-50% OFF!
When I got to Anthropologie, THIS was the first top I tried on, and it came home with me.
I’ve been wearing THIS Anthro top so much (I’ve already washed it three times and it washes beautifully), that I thought I needed to throw another one in the rotation. It’s loose in the tummy area (which I sometimes enjoy), and fits nicely everywhere. The lace detail is very pretty in person. I actually LOVED the white one, but the body of the white one is a tiny bit see through and you would probably want to wear a cami under it.
Click HERE for the lace top that comes in this green, navy, and white.
It only has 2 reviews so far, but they are both 5 STAR.
Click HERE for this unique tunic top!
It had a very bohemian vibe and I loved it. It’s quite long, but I know that lots of you love really long shirts! Also, see the top on the model HERE to see that it looks good with a front tuck too if you don’t want to wear it long.
Click HERE for this gauzy tee. The color was so pretty and vibrant!
This was the last shirt I tried on, and I thought it was lots of fun, but I forgot to take a picture of the tag (I always do that to make it easy for me to find it online when I get home and for me to remember what size I tried on) so I’m having trouble finding it online.
If anybody finds it, leave the link in the blog comments and then I will update the post with a link!
OHHHHH! And I have a couple of more sales to highlight too!
I got an e-mail alert last night that GiGi New York has a large selection that is 20% OFF!
Click HERE for my exact bag.
Click HERE for all of the bags and accessories included in the sale.
I throw things in easily, I grab things quickly, and I love it.
I always thought I was a girl that really wanted a zipper on a bag, but apparently that’s not the case!
LOVE. THIS. TOTE.
And it really is the perfect size.
Big enough to hold lots of stuff…but not too big that it’s hard to carry or find things in!
Everything is at your fingertips!
Cute AND Functional? Yes, please.
Happy Friday everybody!
