The most beautiful summer dress, in my opinion, with a very uncommon color combination: blue and purple. No matter what I say about this dress, it’s not going to show you how beautiful it is. From the gorgeous floral pattern, to how soft the fabric is to how it flows, it’s really hard to describe the beauty of this dress with words. It’s perfect for a beach day or even a shopping day. But I also recommend it for all the boho lovers as it also has that bohemian vibe. It also runs longer at the back, which is actually a plus in my opinion. The deep V neckline is also a nice detail that makes this dress very laid back, but sexy at the same time.
I had the most perfect pair of sandals to wear it with. They are an old purchase and I don’t wear them often, but they were a perfect match for this dress.
For accessories, I opted for a pair of blue earrings and a beaded porcelain bracelet that I actually purchased at a jewelry art fair last summer.
It’s not only Nordstrom that has a big sale now. There are also other amazing stores that are having great sales as well. Here are my latest purchases that I scored for very cheap.
The first are three summer dresses because it’s still summer, right? I particularity like the Twist-Back T-Shirt Dress, as it has a cute opening at the back with unique twist detailing. Also, I don’t have anything in that color, so I’m really loving it. You can also get it in black, but hurry, this dress is almost sold out. I also love the Crochet Lace Tie-Belt Dress. It’s perfect for errands, or a casual day, but still has that beautiful crochet detailing and the belt complements it perfectly. You can also get it in green. The Sleeveless Jersey Dress is very simple, but I love striped dresses. This one has a nice burgundy and white combination, which I absolutely love. It also comes in four other solid colors.
And lastly, I also stocked up on pants. I needed a good dark pair of skinny jeans, so I got the Mid Rise True Skinny Ankle Jeans, which I’m very happy with. As for the Tencel Print Utility Joggers, I’ve been eyeing them forever, and what better time to buy them then now when they are on sale! They will be perfect for in between weather with a light denim jacket. The blue Petite Off The Shoulder Tee is marked way down now where you can get it for about $10! Unbelievable prices on all these things, I’m telling you. Just remember, if you like something, don’t think twice as these things will be gone before you know it. After all, it’s the end of season sales.
Gingham is so popular this summer and I have to tell you I have totally embraced it. You might remember the post I did not so long ago where I wore a red gingham dress. In case you missed it, or want to check it out, here it is. This dress is an absolute dream. It’s so fresh, youthful and something I’ve never had before. It features beautiful ruffle sleeves and the black and white gingham pattern. The bow ties at the back are stunning, and are a most welcome addition. Wearing this dress, I felt like a Parisienne girl wearing a Chanel dress. The gingham pattern makes this beauty stand out even more, like all the amazing detailing is not enough to admire. Be ready for a lot of looks and compliments from other people when out and about wearing this stunner. I absolutely love this dress!
I decided to pair it up with a black purse and white sandals, but you can totally do either a white bag and sandals, or black everything, I decided to mix it up this time.
For accessories, I only wore a pair of simple white earrings as I didn’t want to take aways from the beauty of this dress. It has so much going on already, there is no need to dress it up.
Did I mention this dress is under $20? This was the best purchase I’ve done this summer and the most beautiful dress I’ve bought. This one will not disappoint you!
Original price: $30 – now $9.60 – I wore it on Instagram
I decided to do a roundup of everything I wore in my recent posts that is currently on sale. Just wanted to have it all in one spot for you to keep better track of. I also included a note under each item for you to see in which post I wore a particular piece. Some of the pieces are on major sale now ( less than $10) and I didn’t want you to miss out. Take a look!
This post features this absolutely adorable short sleeved powder color dress. The shade of this dress is even nicer in person and I love how nice and clean it looks. The subtle yet beautiful detailing – the opening and button on top – is everything this dress needs as it’s all about simplicity with this one. Because of its sophisticated look, it’s perfect for summer parties, weddings, baptisms, even work, as well as any other formal occasions. I paired it up with a pair of beige sandals and a white crossbody bag. Because of the simplicity of this dress, you can easily dress it up with a nice pair of earrings and some bracelets but I decided to keep it the way it is with no additional jewelry.
This dress might look seemingly simple and casual at first glance, but in fact, it has a lot of going on. Between the beautiful silhouette with the flare accent and the oh so trendy palm leaf print, it’s actually an amazing dress that can easily be dressed down or up depending on an occasion and type of day. I opted to wear it casually with a pair of white sandals and a pastel pink bag (matching the leaves patterns on the dress), but I can easily envision it with a pair of high heeled brown sandals for a date night as well. Also, I really love the color palette on this dress: brown, white, pastel pink and mint altogether look so pretty, and you can match your shoes and accessories with any of those colors. I really like pastel pink accessories this summer and because of that I’m so glad I got this amazing cross body bag because I’m really getting a lot out of it. I’m wearing it almost every day! Good news – all my outfit pieces: sandals, dress as well as the bag are now under $10 each. Don’t miss out on the fabulous sales on these items. Details below:
I’m not sure if all of you follow me on Instagram (@glamorandgloss), but for those of you who do not, I highly recommend it since I post new outfits almost daily on there, unlike here on the blog. I know some of you might not be on Instagram, so rather than miss out entirely on my posts there, I decided that I will post a roundup of the Instagram outfits that were not featured on the blog. I will start doing it monthly for now, but might do it more frequently if there are a lot of new Instagram posts. Also, you can find all my Instagram pictures on my Instagram page on this blog! But again, if you don’t check out that page often, you might miss some of the outfits. So here is the first roundup and details of each outfit below. Enjoy!
I just grabbed this shirt dress yesterday because I thought it was a great deal. It’s going to be perfect for cooler days like today and I love how it’s great for just any kind of day: errands, shopping days, city sightseeing etc. It’s very comfortable and chic and even though it’s on a casual side, it still has that stylish and sophisticated look to it. I also love the light blue stripe pattern which makes it stand out a little and the fabric is very durable – thick and warm! And, like I said at the beginning, you can get this shirt dress now for under $20. There are a ton of them remaining!
Today I decided to pair it up with white sandals, which, by the way, I also got yesterday (love them!). They were $9 on sale! They also come in coral and black and are so comfortable and lovely, I’m seriously in love with them! And, of course, I had to wear my white cross body bag that you might already know as I wear it a lot, especially with light outfits.
For accessories, I wore this beautiful beaded grey/light blue choker, which has similar shades to the dress and a pair of light blue earrings. Overall, I really like this look and I know I’m going to get a lot out of this dress. Such a classic piece that will never go out of style. I’m telling you, it’s a great buy!
I’ve noticed I’ve been on a boho streak lately and am loving all the bohemian dresses out there. It doesn’t help that they are everywhere lately too! It’s almost like they have become part of the trends of 2017 – after all, embroidery is very popular this season and it’s a huge motif in the bohemian style. Anyways, this look is all about this beautiful red dress that definitely stands out a lot. It’s long, bold and is adorned with intricate embroidered flowers. What a stunner indeed! Also, it’s a steal for only $29 whereas other dresses like this one cost much much more, like for example this one from Free People that is almost identical and runs for $168! You can wear it with your favorite sandals. I recommend brown or white! As for the jewelry, with a dress that has so much going on, you don’t have to accessorize a lot. I didn’t even bother putting on any earrings and the only piece I decided to wear is this red bracelet, as I thought it was a perfect match. All in all, I’m absolutely in love with this dress, and for the price, it’s a great buy!
