How to Wear a Plaid Skirt to Work

Happy Monday! I had such an amazing long weekend in California celebrating two friends getting married. From the welcome party on Thursday night, wedding festivities on Friday, and pool party on Saturday, it was such a fun few days with the best people. I majorly unplugged, which was much-needed… Didn’t really touch my phone or computer all weekend! While I wish I would have taken more pictures, it was so nice to just be in the moment. But today, it’s back to work! (And chugging coffee and water.)

Wide Leg Trousers

I know, I know. Why am I wearing a sweater and pants when it’s hot & humid in Chicago? Believe you me, I am no where near ready for fall, I’d love to live in a land of endless summer. (Yes, I realize I should move to Cali.) BUT I wanted to share a few of the pieces I’ve picked up in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and show you how I plan to style them in a few months! As you might know, the Anniversary Sale is all new-for-fall merchandise that’s debuted at deeply discounted prices before the prices go back up to full retail on August 7th. Right now, the sale is only open to cardholders, but it opens up to everyone this Friday! (You can see a full look at almost everything I tried on in this post!) Today I’m sharing this fun flared-sleeve sweater and this pair of high-waisted wide-leg trouser pants styled two different ways… One with studded heels and a structured tote for work, one with pearl embellished flats that’s perfect for a weekend brunch.

Stripes on Stripes

I shared this striped dress on the blog a few weeks ago, but I’ve been getting so much wear out of it and it’s currently on major sale so I had to post it again! Anthropologie is having their summer tag sale and all sale items are an extra 30% off, so this dress comes out to be a mere $69. (Pretty good for originally being $188!) It’s available in all sizes so jump on it! For reference, I’m wearing a size 4.

I would have never thought to pair this striped bag with this dress, but it was a happy accident! I picked up this dress in Santa Barbara and only had two bags with me… this striped tote and my black Gucci bag.
