Jackets for fall, coats for winter, and dresses for spring. But summer is all about the tops. Finding the perfect summer top is always my priority when shopping this time of the year. I love finding great tops and blouses to pair with shorts, skirts, and jeans. And while I love a good t-shirt, summer is all about finding those breezy, care-free tops.

This striped, balloon sleeve top is absolutely perfect for summer. And I love that I don’t have to wear a bra with it. The secret is these bad boys. Little lifesavers. I wear them with literally everything. They come in handy when wearing flowy crop tops or backless jumpsuits like this one.

Speaking of great summer tops, there are a ton of great, affordable options right now. I love this strapless top (on sale!) to wear with denim shorts or cropped linen pants. This top is a great way to add a little color to vintage cut denim. This tank is another perfect summer top. And how cute is this bow strap red tank? I plan on pairing it with denim cut-offs and my favorite pair of Soludos.

50 Under $50: Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

nordstrom half yearly sale 2017

Memorial weekend is here which means let the shopping being! There are so many good sales right now but none beat the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. I’ve already scooped up these jeans that I’ve been eyeing along with this, this and this for summer. I also plan on living in this tee all summer.

I’ve rounded up my top 50 Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale finds under $50 because there are just so many awesome affordable finds. Although this is usually a good time to pick up pricier pieces that have finally gone on sale (like jeans or jackets), I prefer to stock up on bargain finds under $50 (tons of great pieces below).

Hope everyone has an amazing long weekend! I’ll be sitting poolside from now through Monday. 😎 And shopping… because these deals are too good to pass up.

Everyone has “their” color. Mine is red. It’s the one color I make an exception for when I mostly stick to neutrals. I call it my power color. You know how blue is often a power color for men? At least in the corporate world. Well, mine is red. It’s a bold, vibrant color that brings out my true confidence. I typically wear it in the summertime and this season there are a ton of red dress options available. And I am all about the little red dress. Seriously, I think I’ve purchased five in the last month. 🙈

This rust-red hue dress is summer perfection. Easy to wear, flattering and oh, so breezy making it perfect for just about any occasion. I wore it while we were in Mexico City and it was perfect to wear to dinner. I paired it with this gorgeous rattan round shoulder bag (obsessed!) and these sandals to keep the look casual. It was perfect.

This style has sadly since sold out but I’m also head over heels for this and this style. Too good for summer. And can we talk about how amazing this red dress would be for a warm summer night or Sunday brunch? I also wore this dress while in Mexico and it has quickly become a favorite. For those looking for a dress alternative, this jumpsuit is too perfect. I purchased it in black but might have to scoop it up in red! After all, it is my power color. 😉 I even ordered this jumpsuit in red because it was too good to pass up. Clearly, I’m having a color moment.

The Ultimate Summer Accessory: Turbands

 After five days in Mexico City, I can’t help but be completely inspired by all things Mexico. It’s one of my favorite places to travel to. I just love everything about it. The culture (getting in touch with my own roots), the food, the music… everything is just so magical. Although the city is definitely a little more business casual (think New York during the week), outside of the city is bursting with Mexican culture and has been inspiring my style since I returned. It’s also inspired my love for turbands this summer.

I can’t get enough of them! This one is from Zara but I’ve been mainly using silk scarves (tutorial on how to tie turbands, perhaps?). I’ve also got my eye on this one which has a wire built in for easy styling. So chic. Trust me, you’ll want to wear a turband with every outfit this summer. You can see me styling it here and here on Instagram.

Cult Gaia has some of the best options – currently obsessing over this and this. But Free People also has a great selection! Loving this and this. And for a little sparkle at night, I love this style.
