Oh Sailor | with Comme Toi & Pour la Victoire

Sweets and Hearts style: outfit featuring sailor blouse, scalloped shorts, Pour la Victoire satchel, thrifted leather loafers


I can never have too many sailor/nautical themed clothes.

I got the sailor top on sale from Sidecca and paired it with gray scalloped shorts from Forever 21, thrifted leather loafers, and a leather satchel by Pour la Victoire.

Rain or Shine

Sweets and Hearts fashion: outfit style featuring Urban Outfitters black v-back romper, Ashy gray leather wedge sneakers, vintage quilted leather bag, Lulu Guinness umbrella

Like a little rain is going to keep me from the Dear Creatures sample sale.

Okay, so I didn't realize I was going to run into the stormy part of LA when I was on my way to the sale, but it didn't last long anyway and the sun was peeking through the clouds when I was done.

The Dear Creatures sample sale is my favorite. Everything is under $50 and they have plenty of items from the most recent collections (and you might even run into the designer and have a fangirl moment and freak out when she's super nice and recognizes you from your blog..sorry for rambling). 

It's also really organized and calmer than other sample sales I've been to. I got a few things and can't wait to wear them (especially the light denim moto jacket--I snatched that up right away). They usually announce the sales (it's semi-annual and occurs in the summer and winter) on their Facebook and Instagram, so follow for updates if you're also a fan and live in or around LA!

I woke up early for the sale and wanted to get there ASAP (I even bought an early bird ticket), so I dressed pretty simply: a black romper from Urban Outfitters, gray leather wedge sneakers (my boss let me keep them from work!), a vintage leather quilted crossbody bag that I thrifted, and my trusty Lulu Guinness bubble umbrella.

Don't let the rain fool you: it's still 80 degrees and kind of humid outside.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access - Things You Need in Your Life

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access - Clarisonic, MAC, Kate Spade, Frends, Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access 

It started with headphones.

Okay, so I normally don't even pay attention to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (way too tempting!) and I'm sure it's all over you social media by now, but I just had to share some of the amazing things I encountered when I spiraled down the sale hole.

I've recently been searching for a good deal on the Frends headphones I'd been lusting over at work (which sold out the day after we got them, ugh). The ones at the sale are actually way better (and an exclusive!) because they're cheaper and even come bundled with matching earbuds. Awesome.

So I splurged on the pretty leather headphones.

I even signed up for a Nordstrom debit card just so I could have early access to the deals. Honestly, if I had known about the debit card earlier, I would've signed up forever ago.

Here are a few sale items you need to know about from some of my favorite brands (and those headphones I really, really like):

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access - Clarisonic, MAC, Kate Spade, Frends, Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker
  1. This Clarisonic Mia 2 is a steal (and much prettier than the one I have).I can't say enough good things about it--it's part of my regular skincare routine. Tip: you can find genuine replacement brushes on eBay for cheap!
  2. A Nordstrom exclusive, this MAC natural lip kit is perfect for creating a nude lip and under $30 (a $47 value). I like pairing nude lips with dark brown smokey eyes.
  3. These rainbow glitter Kate Spade earrings are quirky, unique, and will match just about anything in your closet!
  4. The Frends Taylor and Ella headphones bundle I got! I can't wait to try them out. The brand has overwhelmingly positive reviews about the design and sound quality, so I'm sure they'll be wonderful. The over ear ones even have interchangeable caps (but they're pretty enough on their own). 
  5. I'm a huge fan of Ted Baker and love the feminine details incorporated in the accessories. I have a wallet in patent baby blue that I got from Nordstrom a few years ago. This hot pink is such a fun, fearless color!
  6. A sleek black leather tote by Rebecca Minkoff? Yes, please. It's a great everyday bag that can carry just about everything and easily transition from day to night.

There really are some amazing deals, so take advantage! If you don't want to sign up for the credit card but still want to shop the sale early, just sign up for the debit card like I did. If you don't mind waiting, the sale is open to everyone July 17th.

Now all I have to do is wait for those headphones to come in (I'm ridiculously excited). You can bet I'm checking the tracking updates constantly.

Happy shopping!
