The Best of Burgundy Fashion for Fall and Winter

Fall Fashion, Fashion, Fashion Blog Posts, Handbags, Shoes, sale alertAnneke McConnell

Hi friends! I hope you've been having a great day! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that's where I share more of my fashion finds, and I have to admit, burgundy is having a moment in my opinion.

I've been a fan of the color for years and I think that it is universally flattering on EVERYONE, so it's fun to see how the color is showing up in fashion and home decor alike!

Of all the colors out there, burgundy goes by way more names than any other I've seen.  As I was finding all the burgundy fashion items right now, I found pieces under the name merlot, wine, port, oxblood, acai, dark plum, dark red, deep currant, berry, and more.

It's also a beautiful color that shows up in a variety of patterns and textures, from plaid, crushed velvet, satin, leather, faux leather, suede, and corded, knits, silks, and not to mention the gorgeous jewelry pieces! These plum tassel earrings are probably my FAVE!  I also lean toward simplicity and a good burgundy sweater like this one will always be my go-to. ;-)

If you're a fan of the color burgundy, I hope this helps you find the best for fashion all in one place!  Below is a boutique that shares Fall fashion items such as sweaters, jeans, booties, over the knee boots, strappy heels, chunky heels, workout leggings, scarves, hats, and of course plenty of gorgeous handbags, probably my favorite in the burgundy color!

Happy shopping and happy Fall!

Also! Just a friendly reminder that today is the LAST DAY of the rare Serena & Lily friends and family sale! 20% off sitewide - this chair is a MUST for coastal home decor!

The Best of the Shop Bop sale and weekend deals

Fall Fashion, Fashion Blog Posts, Fave PicksAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! Thank so much for the love on my last post! There is nothing like Fall traditions to put a smile on our face.  :-)

We have just one day left of the Shop Bop sale and there are so many great options still in stock - I in particular scout for jeans, handbags, sweater, boots, and jewelry.

This cardigan drape coat was a surprisingly chic find, and of course so many other favorites are shared below in the style boutique. I've found this is the easiest way to share what I've picked from the 1000's of items on the site.  

I also just got these black quilted Hunter boots in the mail and they are SO pretty!  When you've found those perfect fashion finds for fall, make sure to enter the code EOTS17 to get up to 25% off your total. 

Happy Shopping and be sure to check out these other great sales this weekend. I'm already getting excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas - don't kill me! I think the older I get I just can't get enough of the holiday spirit. Lol

The Best of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Fashion Blog PostsAnneke McConnell

Today is the kick off of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, and I know many of us are incredibly excited to snag some cute summer sandals, handbags, tops, dresses, and more!

Even as a blogger, navigating these sales can be extremely overwhelming >>>> the shoe section alone has almost 4000 options! And that's just the women's, but I for one also have a husband and three kiddos (I am SO thankful for sales like these!).

The Half Yearly Sale lasts until June 4th, but let me give you a few tips before you jump in:

1. Start with the Shoes.

     Many of the more popular shoe sizes sell out right off the bat, so I suggest starting there with a bit of an idea of what you need.  Get as specific as you can in the search on size, color, style, etc. You can bet I've got these Coach espadrille sandals in my cart!

2. Grab Your Handbag Picks.

     Many of the favorite handbags are the next to go, so if you see a handbag you love, snag it right away! I missed out on an amazing deal for the Tory Burch Parker Tote because I waited a few hours. It's still on sale elsewhere,  but still a bit higher priced. Lesson learned >>>> if you know you'd like to go for it, don't wait.

3. Buy in Batches.

     Speaking may sound a bit crazy to some, but because Nordstrom is so amazing with their free shipping and returns policy, I recommend buying items in batches instead of doing a big "Final Order". But only if you are certain about the items (particularly shoes and handbags)!  This way you don't lose out on an incredible deal, since most items are 40-50% off.

4. This is the time to buy RUGS.

    I'm particularly fond of the Dash & Albert and Couristan rugs, especially with a stair runner installation project on the horizon. There are so many great options though!


I still have a lot of browsing around to do, but here are my personal top picks and a favorites round up for YOU! Have FUN!! ;-)

Splurge vs. Save - Spring Style

Fashion Blog Posts, Spring, Summer, Splurge vs. SaveAnneke McConnell


Hello lovely ladies!  I hope you are doing well and anticipating warmer weather soon with Spring right around the corner.  We're keeping busy as a fam with the kiddo's school and activities as well as the occasional trip - recently to Cannon Beach which I shared little of on Instagram. (For just style >>>> @CoastalCollectiveStyle)

I'm SO excited for today's post!  I love creating outfit ideas to inspire you and doing a little splurge vs. save for whatever your current budget may be. 

I know how daunting it can be to search the internet for just the right item, even I get overwhelmed with all the options at times.  So, I hope this helps save you a ton of time shopping or at least points you in the right direction.

Today's outfit is probably one of my go-to looks in the Spring and Summer.  It's so easy to swap out shorts, and flats, a colorful pair of earrings, or a light jacket. 

If there's anything I love, it's a good blue and white striped top (I just ordered this one!) with some gold accessories.  And no matter the season, you'll often find me in a hat. ;-)  

All outfit items can be found below each photo. Which do you go for? The Splurge or the Save? :-)
