Saturday Shopping, Moorea Seal.

Seattle girlboss mavin Moorea Seal has added a chicly curated clothing selection to her belltown boutique.  Good news for everyone is that she also offers this selection online.  I love her nod to vintage styles and colors but with modern updates.

I recently visited her shop during her weekly Friday night happy hour, here are my faves,

Happy Saturday,


Let's talk cream of the crop back in stock. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

nordstrom anniversary sale leith tunic

Well this sale has been interesting.  Everything I have loved and want to talk about has sold out, but today is the day that the sale "opens to the public"  aka non card holders can shop, and it usually means that almost everything comes back in stock.

So, first things first - this tunic.  For sure on my fave list.  and it sold out in two days.  So if you like it, I say don't wait.  It runs large, I am wearing an xs.  The lace detail is wonderful, it's easy to wear, I love the sleeve length.

Jeans - if you are looking for a fall skinny jean this one is pretty rad.  I love the higher cut waste and the dark color with just a bit of fade perfection.  Rag & Bone does skinny right - always a great fit, tight yet flattering.

Boots - great black suede.  The notch at the front ankle is everything, keeping the boot casual and fancy at the same time.  The toe shape and heel height - so good.  and a great price point.

Get your Autumn on. Sweater and Jacket Picks from the Nordstrom Sale.

One of the best feelings is drinking a hot cup of coffee, extra foam wearing a wonderful new favorite jacket, feeling all cozy and chic.

The Nordstrom sale is a great place to find that perfect jacket or sweater for when the days turn cooler.

Here are my sweater picks. Of course I love an oversized cozy piece, but I'm also loving this hip mesh piece, open backs, chic high necks, cowl necks always...

My Coats and Jackets Picks
1. oversized sweater coat, 2. camo always a good choice, and 3. a denim poncho, what?!  4. That leather jacket with an oversized collar was just purchased and I can't wait for it to arrive, I'm hoping it's my very favorite, but then 4. I stumbled upon this sweater vest, seriously!  and then 5. a twist on a classic vest, always a great layering piece.  6, 7 & 8. Give me bold structured tweed and plaid, all day every day for Autumn.

I'm seeing lots of plaid and fringe and standout collars and I like.  What is your favorite trend?

This sweater is tops.

Taking a quick departure from summer to talk the best of the Nordstrom anniversary sale.  

This color-blocked cardigan from TopShop, perfectly oversized, and with pockets, will be a perfect addition to fall's wardrobe.

And I love the color of these booties, perfect under fall's flares.

What's receiving 5 stars on your list?

Ok back to summer.

No one better than professional stylist Jenn to talk about her favorite Wear to Work styles from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  See more on her blog.

Now get back to the weekend.


Let's just start with shoes. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

because really, where else would you start?

My best cure ever for morning sickness, was crawling on my knees to get through the crowds to find my size at a 75% off Marc Jacobs Shoe Sale in NYC.  Still one of my finest moments.

ok, back to the shoes.  There are a few that I am super excited about, particularly these above, ironically a sneaker - oh if my former self could hear me now.  But seriously these sneakers sort of changed the course of my shoe wearing.  They are awesome, and the new denim-ish black linen texture they come in is perfect for fall.  and on my list.  (also the timberland boots and hunter rain boots, and for sure boys back to school shoes...and if I didn't already own my Rag & Bone boots, for sure these!)

Here's my tops









Which ones are your faves??

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks: Too hot too last.

Good Morning.

nordstrom anniversary sale

I'm up late and counting down to bring you my very favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks, these are the items that I love the most and perhaps may not last.  

This sale can be overwhelming.  Start with searching by your favorite brands (free people, topshop, rag&bone).  I also like to start with flare denim, or booties to get myself warmed up.

It's very early in the morning so I will keep this short and sweet, many more details to come.

Stay tuned the rest of the week, I am teaming up with Jenn to share all our favorite picks by category and share outfit photos.

Tell me what you think!  What's your sale faves?
