Hello friends! Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Pinterest for all the behind the scenes, not to mention my new FAVE app Periscope - you can find me at Coastal Collective Co.!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is just about over and many items have been restocked including my #1 FAVE military jacket!! I love that it has a removable liner.  You can see my first post about the sale HERE and my top picks for kid's with my little guest Annabelle (aka my daughter). It was so fun to work with her on those back to school outfit ideas!


Today's post is my wrap up of the sale and I'll be scoping about them later today or tomorrow if you have questions. Be sure to find me on Periscope to chat with me - it's SO fun live streaming with you guys!  From home, fashion, diy, and life/biz tips, it's definitely my new fave place to hang on social media. :-)


Yes I am sharing this as #mamastyle because I am indeed a SAHM/WAHM or three kiddos.  This blog highlights my style for dressing up or down - I hope you find it helpful as you are looking for inspiration!

One of my absolute favorites in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is this blouse! It is flow perfection, discounted under $30 and comes in multiple colors. I love them all and it is super versatile.  I got this super affordable tote in black and cognac and it is roomy enough for the day to day mama/design/blogging tasks, but not super huge either.  The half d'Orsay pointy toe pump leopard heels are all you need to make a simple outfit look seriously chic! They are pretty comfy with a lower heel, but they did run a little larger in size than I expected for me. And of course, the beautiful Kendra Scott necklace. This one is so pretty and dare I say functional?? It doesn't get in the way like the longer necklaces, isn't too large or too dainty and really goes with just about everything.

Ok you guys, THIS SWEATER is amazing and only $27 right now!!!! I got this in the olive color also and it is just SO comfy and chic and perfect for our fall/winters here in the Pacific Northwest.  It definitely isn't one you need to size up and is made to be oversize. It looks great long as a tunic with leggings and knee high boots [I share my picks below], or the front tucked into your jeans and maybe some heels. Aren't these bootcut jeans awesome?! I shared another alternative below.  It's fun to play around with different looks. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, but you never know unless you try! Again we have the tote mentioned above in black. And the prettiest red suede pointy toe pumps. I have been on the lookout for some pretty red heels for awhile and these are a great color - not to bright, but not too dark either.  I don't normally where wide shoes, but these do seem a bit snug in the toe box, so just be aware of that for fit. FYI, my husband approves. Lol ;-)

My other fave sweater was this one. It's not as "chunky" as the cowl neck one above (it's a v-neck) and the material is much lighter, great for layering and transitional from summer to fall. Layered with the navy blue scarf, it will be the perfect combo as the weather gets a little more chilly. I am preferring these black knee high boots since they are stiff leather, can be dressed up or down, have a really comfortable and supportive sole. Boot are BIG here in the Seattle area, and these are a great options.  I've linked the other two boot I got below as well. The Lucky Brand is casual as comfy with a great pull on and go style.  Great for those busy days of running around with the kiddos.  The other pair are the Naturalizers which I like the side buckles for looks and curved back on the top of the boot.  All these come in multiple colors and wide calf options - high fives to that!

My FAVE military jacket is THIS ONE - you guys. It's so awesome that it has this removable liner!! I was saying a prayer of thanks for air conditioning when I took these photos, because even then I was so hot. I'm pretty sure this will be one of my go to casual jackets this season and beyond! The olive color is perfect, it's durable long-lasting material, the zippers are smooth, and the length works great even for me at 5'3" tall. 

Well this is about the best photo I have of this gorgeous leopard jacket at this time. Let's just say the hubby approves. Sometimes the best way to go from mama style to wifey style is by throwing on a chic pair of leopard anything. Lol Ok....moving on. :-)

I absolutely adore this long knit cardigan. It comes in multiple colors, but I love this deep merlot. It's the perfect color for fall and looks great on anyone! It seems to run a bit oversize as well, but I'd say just order it your true size.  It is currently only $32 for the sale and perfect for layering.

Last but not least on my list of must haves are this warm and fashionable faux fur vest and essential floppy hat. There are both versatile and will carry you through the entire season. The vest does have hook closures just so you know, and I've shared some alternatives below as well as options to pair it with.

I'm pretty happy with what I was able to snag in the sale. Many items sold out right away, but if you check out the entire sale there are so many great items available! I'm sharing my other favorites below to give you an idea of what else is on sale and you can always go here to browse further. Enjoy the rest of your summer guys and happy fall shopping! 

Oh!! And if this weren't enough amazingness, my one my faves for jewelry, BaubleBar, is having a 30% off sale stewed right now! Just be sure to use the code XMASINJULY! Everything from this major splurge to this beautiful steal. 

Thanks for joining me for today's fashion post! Have a great day!
