Retail Therapy: Wear Now, Wear Later

It's busy season at work and although sometimes I just want to close my eyes and reopen them on a tropical island, (or Antarctica, I'm not picky), a little retail-therapy can be just as re-energizing. Especially when said retail therapy is during a sale! Nordstrom is having its Anniversary Sale on fall preview merchandise and I am having trouble editing my overflowing online shopping bag. Here is one of the outfits I am envisioning for now as well as for fall:

Joie "Marlo" Silk Blouse (now $145, after the sale $218)
Halogen Seamed Pencil Skirt (now $45, after the sale $68)
Sam Edelman "Truman" Pump (now $119, after the sale $179)
Rebecca Minkoff "Passport" Ostrich Embossed Flap Wallet (now $164, after the sale $245)
Marcia Moran Teardrop Agate Druzy Ring (now $129, after the sale $198)

I love the blue and yellow together (not to mention the texture differences!) and the jazzy patent pump and ostrich clutch are fun additions that make a statement but are neutral enough to let the druzy ring shine (literally!)....

What pieces are you looking for to wear now and in the fall? Any other sales I should know about (as my wallet screams in terror)? And I know I am not the only one who loves retail therapy...right?


  1. We all need a little retail therapy every once in awhile! And this is usually the time I start itching to shop for sweaters and new jeans and boots. I love the blue and yellow together! xoxo Marissa


  2. I love that yellow pencil skirt! Too pretty for words.
