I’ll start off with apologizing to those that aren’t into the maxi romper look because this is the second one I’m featuring this week. Good news though! I don’t have anymore in my closet or on my wishlist which means you won’t see another on the blog anytime soon! Also apologies for the quality of these pictures. We had to shoot during the afternoon (not ideal for lighting) because Erik had to get to work so the lighting is too bright. #hubbyworksnightshift
In comparing this maxi romper to the one featured in this post from Monday, this one is much more casual because there is no wrap feature over it. I loved the colors in this one though so I couldn’t resist. I went with my favorite, go to, worn too many times block heel but flat sandals would look perfect too.
I know a lot of people were shocked to find both maxi rompers were from Charlotte Russe. You just never know what you might find in these teeny bopper stores! Let’s face it, we can’t always splurge on everything and I try super hard not to over spend on trendy pieces. Stores like Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, H&M were made for this reason! And in case you are embarrassed to walk into these stores (which by the way you should never be embarrassed!) I tend to do much better shopping these stores online anyway. I find it much easier to filter what I’m looking for and not deal with racks and racks of clothes. Moral of my story, don’t rule these stores out! You can really pick up some great pieces that won’t break the bank!
So now onto what I call Christmas in July. Take a break and grab a glass of water if you need one. I’ll try not to make this too long and complicated! Unless you were living under a rock this week then you know Tuesday was Amazon Prime Day. So many great deals! However, I feel like that sale is just the warm up to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which kicks off TODAY for Nordstrom cardholders. As you are reading this blog post I am scrolling like a maniac through the sale. For those that don’t know the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is where NEW fall items are put out at deeply discounted prices. Big designers are featured. Last year I got a Tory Burch bag at like 40% off! Unlike most sales where the store is trying to get rid of inventory, this sale puts out NEW fall inventory highly discounted but prices go back up on August 7th. I call this sale the SHOP NOW/WEAR LATER sale. Get those winter boots, sweaters and coats NOW!
If you are a Nordstrom cardholder you can shop early access starting TODAY 7/13. The sale opens to the public on 7/21 and the sale ends 8/7. Things go fast ladies! Nordies offers FREE shipping and FREE return shipping so if you see things you like order and send back what doesn’t work.
Over the weekend I will put together a full blog post of what I got and as my deliveries arrive I’ll be sure to get posts up quickly showing you what worked and what didn’t. Be sure to like my facebook page here to keep up with additional posts.
PHEW! You still with me? I know this was a LONG post! There was a lot to cover. An outfit and a major sale! Alright wrapping this up, finally. Thank you to those that made it to the end of the post LOL!
Final words: Pace yourself (I have to remind myself), have fun and let the shopping begin!
