Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018!

Wow…long time, no talk! How are y’all??? I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted on the blog. It has taken me so long to get back into the swing of things since I got back from Colombia. Unfortunately, I have put blogging on the back-burner since I got back from my trip, but don’t worry, that will change soon! I have three photo shoots planned for tomorrow, so get ready for more consistent content coming this month!

In the meantime, I finally have a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post up for you guys! I’m sure most of you are sick and tired of hearing about the sale, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to make a post on it. I ordered four items from the sale (technically five, but I thought creating an outfit around a bra would be unnecessary), and I thought it would be fun to create outfits out of the four items I bought. One requirement I have for when I purchase an item, is if I can create at least three different ways that I can wear it in my head. It’s a good rule of thumb to have while shopping in order to make sure that I will get my money’s worth out of it. So, for each item I purchased, I took one of the outfits I created in my head, and put it on paper for y’all. A majority of the items in this collage are a part of the Nordstrom Sale, but if they aren’t on sale, they are at least from Nordstrom! If you aren’t a Nordstrom cardholder, don’t forget that the sale goes public on July 20th!

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week! Any fun plans for this weekend? No fun plans on the Hayley front- just work and homework. My favorite kinds of weekends! (If you didn’t read that sentence with a sarcastic tone, you read it wrong.)

Isn’t this sweater adorable? I love how sweet and feminine the ruffles on the shoulders are. The ruffles make enough of a statement that you don’t have to do much in terms of styling, so just a pair of jeans and booties worked for me. But I think I would love it even more with white jeans and wedges once it starts to get warmer! P.S. It comes in grey too, if you aren’t a pink gal.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Before I sign off, I have been working hard the past few weeks to start planning spring content for March, and I would love to get feedback on what you all would like to see! Are there any specific outfits for spring you would like to see? Do you find my outfit collages helpful? Or would you like to see more beauty content? I value your feedback so much, so it would mean so much to me to hear from y’all! If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment on this post or on one of my Instagram photos!

How was your New Year’s, everyone?? Mine was pretty good! Nothing too wild though…my boyfriend and I actually ended up calling it a night at around 10:30 haha. Just a couple of crazy kids, huh?

This is a nice casual outfit that I thought was so easy and simple, but still managed to look casually chic. Maybe one day I will use the word ‘chic’ without feeling super pretentious, but until then I’m just gonna keep saying it. Everyone loves an outfit that looks good with little effort, right? Also, I can’t recommend these boots enough. They are the same ones I was wearing in this post, but in black. Told you I wanted to get my hands on them, didn’t I? They are selling out fast at a lot of places, so I suggest grabbing them while you can.

I’m enjoying my last week off before school starts again in a week. Ugh, isn’t that gross? Did I not just finish my last exam like a week ago?? It’s actually been three weeks since I finished my last exam, but it might as well have been one week ago because it has flown by.  Just thinking about sitting in class again makes me want to take a nap. And, ya know…cry.

Happy December!!! Only 21 more days until Christmas! I am so ready to be home for the holidays. It’s all I can really focus on right now (looks like I’m in good shape for finals, huh? haha). I’ll study for my finals after I finish looking at Christmas cookie recipes on Pinterest. “Just ten more minutes,” has been my motto the past few days.

I wore this outfit when I was home for Thanksgiving and my family and I went to get a Christmas tree! I love love love this cape! It is so festive and really good quality. It sold out so many times online, so it was long gone by the time I was able to wear it. But I found some similar ones that are really cute, so those are all linked for you guys!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and are enjoying this holiday season with your loved ones! I’m gonna go narrow down my Christmas cookie recipes. As soon as I get to Charlotte for the holidays, I plan on having a baking extravaganza…all in the name of staying warm for the winter 😉

Cold Shoulder Sweatshirt Dress for $55

If you are looking for a comfy dress that’s also cute as a button, this is the dress for you. I’ve never owned any sort of sweatshirt material dress before, but I finally decided to try one after I saw that this one had the cute ruffled cold shoulders and was only $55. Once it gets a little chillier, I plan on wearing it with my tall suede tan boots, or even with some brown tights and my tan ankle boots!

Did y’all have a good weekend? I had a great weekend with my boyfriend as we ate our little hearts out, and he so kindly took these blog photos for me, as well as blog photos for three other outfits (he’s such a trooper)! As I type this, I’m procrastinating on studying for a Spanish test and watching The Santa Claus… #NEVERtooearly. Let’s just hope you all are being more productive than I am right now.

Have a great week, friends! And Merry Christmas! …Oh shoot, sorry. The movie is rubbing off on me already.
