There is a major Black and White trend in play and I’m happy to see New York & Company hopping on the bandwagon. The truth is “black and white” is not a trend, it’s classic and it’s consistent. There will always be a place for black and white in anyone’s wardrobe if it’s done right.
In Arizona we are deprived of life with four seasons. We experience: mildly warm, hot, hotter, and on fire. That being said, we are slowly approaching mildly warm, which I consider Sweater Weather. Since this past summer seemed especially grueling and long I started collecting sweaters early to give me hope hot cappuccinos and cool walks with the family were around the corner.
New York & Co. has the most amazing selection this year. I found not just one or two, but maybe 10 sweaters that needed a home in my closet. I’m featuring a few of my favorites here. I love clothing with movement, which means fringe everything. This white fringe sweater and matching white fringe sweater skirt is probably one of the most comfy sets I’ve ever worn that’s so chic at the same time. I paired it with booties, but just imagine it with some great heels. Get festive with your shoe choice. I would even wear some red pumps with this set around the holidays.
Nordstrom Rack’s Clear the Rack Sale is upon us. Hooooooray! This is one of my favorite sale events all year because you can find some really amazing, on trend, quality brand items for 75% off their normal price.
I compiled a few of my favorite finds below from www.nordstromrack.com and then shared an outfit I found in-store at the Nordstrom Rack near me in Scottsdale, Arizona. The sale is only going on through tomorrow so get your butt in gear!
This is the best time to refresh your fall/winter staples you’re going to end up buying anyway in the next few months, i.e.: Leather Jackets, Denim, Cardigans, long sleeve Ts.
I love balayage hair color, and ombre hair color, and all those pretty color variations that are trending lately. I lightened my color with the intent of it being a super cool beige blond, but had not realized how the water in Arizona strips color treated hair so fast. Within a week of my visit to the salon, my brassy tones were starting to surface. I’ve tried purple shampoos and blue shampoos, but wasn’t really getting great results. I can’t even tell you the number of times I wondering if there was a company that made at home toners for between trips to my hair stylist, Jessica Marsical, who is incredible. Madison Reed answered my prayers for refreshing my color at home, keeping me photo ready, and providing hair products that are reasonable and easily attainable.
