#AD Style || My Picks From @Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale || #Nordstrom

It’s the most wonder time of the year… who just sang that first sentence with their head too? I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to score my picks from their legendary Half Yearly Sale. Until May 27th score your favourites at up to 40% off. I love to update my summer wardrobe with some designer favourites this time of year, not only for the discount but the in-store Nordstrom shopping experience also. Whenever I enter a Nordstrom I love the warm greetings and styling expertise of their staff. There have been many a time I come in with an idea of a look I’m wanting to achieve and they make it a reality with personalized product picks that fit my style and body type. They are a pleasure to work with… not looking for a shopping helper, don’t worry the sale is easily marked throughout the store for you to search on your own if that’s your kinda day. Who doesn’t love a great shopping day?

By now I’m sure you’re curious about what I picked up in the sale. I needed a few basics to add to my day to day Mommy wardrobe. And I’ve been dying to add something romantic for date night. And jeans, I love getting a good pair of denim on major clearance. Here are my product picks from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale:

Make + Model Take It Easy Lounge Hoodie in “GREY PEARL HEATHER.” I love the feminine ruffle detail on this lounge wear hoodie. It’s perfect for kicking it with the kids around the house but cute enough to wear out on a Starbucks coffee date.

Tory Burch Cecily Sequin Embellished Espadrille in “OCTAGON SQUARE/ NEW IVORY.” Espadrilles are a summer wardrobe staple in my humble opinion. Dress them up with a Maxi or feminine romper. Or pair them with casual shorts or distressed denim jeans. They are so comfy and so stylish.

Socialite Lace Overlay Romper. I’ve been searching for an elegant lace romper for date night for quite some time. I had my eye on this one for months, so I’m so pumped to have scored it on sale. These Palm Leaf Espadrilles are included in the sale too!

Don’t miss out on this amazing sale, head in this weekend in store… you never know what you’ll find.

Style || Overall Trend & Pretty Bell Sleeves || Spring Look

I’ll be the first to admit, I was pretty skepytical about the overall denim trend that has been emerging in the last year. I haven’t owned a pair since I was 7 years old! Either I found the styles too juvenille or the fit too difficult to get into. But I’m sold now that I found the perfect style, these have a side zipper to help get on and off for a more fitted look. I’ve partner with Style Culture to style 2 of my top product picks from their online boutique.

Starting with… these Distressed Denim Overalls by BLANK NYC. They are the perfect mix of comfort and style. I love the ripped details and the minor stretch to the denim.

Style || An easy spring look || The New Mommy Uniform

With the weather finally showing signs of spring, I’m so excited to share this easy

daytime look. I’ve partnered with Blu’s to showcase some of the new items they’ve

brought in this season. If you haven’t popped into a Blu’s location recently, the one thing

I absolutely love is the customer experience.

They have personal stylists right in store to

help you find a full look or just the right piece you’ve been missing in your wardrobe. I

told my stylist, Emily, at the Southgate location, that I really wanted to find an easy day

time look that I could wear from meetings to the playground in a nautical color palette.

She helped me put together this look that I absolutely love!A76D4990-7832-4F9B-AC35-6C0EA5F694EA

The red MaxMara sweater is really comfortable and is just the right layering

piece for spring in Edmonton, which can be a bit unpredictable and still a bit

chilly. This navy blue cardigan jacket by Moncler is something I’ve actually

had my eye on for a while. As you all know, I love outerwear and I’ll get

tons of wear out of this piece, whether I’m running errands, taking the kids

to the park or lunch out with the girls or my hubby.

And, what can I say about this navy bag from Longchamp? These classic

French­designed bags are so durable and I loved the fun pattern on this

one. It will easily transition into the summer season and I’ll be taking this

one on many of our summer adventures!
