So, Nordstrom Rack is now officially my best friend. First, I scored these gorgeous Brian Atwood fringe booties at a FRACTION of what they retailed for last year when I first saw them on Rachel Bilson. They made their debut during my NYFW trip and are fast becoming my favorite pair… they are insanely comfortable, and did I mention they have fringe? I am only slightly obsessed. Next up… these Jimmy Choo cat-eye sunnies that I found on clearance for (drum roll, please) $44.95! Yup… under $50 when the retail for $300!
I’m a treasure, er, bargain-hunter at heart but I know MANY people who are literally scared to walk in to places like the Rack, TJ Maxx/Marshall’s, Century 21, etc. because they hate to “dig” to find deals. It’s totally worth it if you want to save some money! I’ve found items at Nordstrom Rack for 1/2 price that are also sitting at Nordstrom down the same street for full. Try to find out what day of the week inventory comes into your local store and haul-ass on that day… you’ll usually be in for a treat! Happy Friday!

I’m totally in love with cognac so it was only a matter of time before I added a leather jacket to my list of pieces that color. I scored this gorgeous BB Dakota version in early summer on sale and was saving it for the first cool day of the season! I know I wear these western booties post after post, but they are one of my favorites (and most comfy) so I wear them just about anywhere and they never seem to go out of style!
Funny side note on these photos: Raja told me this shoot looked like a Free People advertisement… I told him he’s obviously spending too much time helping out his style blogger girlfriend in order to know that tidbit of information! Ahhh, he’s the BEST and doesn’t get NEARLY enough credit for how much he helps me! I love you Raj and couldn’t do this without you! xo

Now you’re probably thinking, GASP, “She’s wearing white pants after labor day?!” We’ve all heard the age old adage, no white after Labor Day a hundred times before, but I’m all about fashion rules being broken! I love my white pants, tees, and dresses and will absolutely be rocking all of them throughout the fall season. They make my autumn colors pop! This faded-wash denim vest will also be making the rounds in my wardrobe over tees and blouses now, and with chunky knits when the temp drops!
I’ve been testing out lots of new hairstyles thanks to YouTube and Pinterest lately and fell in love with this waterfall braid! Go ahead and look for videos on YouTube, like this one (it’s way easier than it looks) to try it out yourself!
