Growing up, I lived for the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, because it was and still is one of the best sales out there. All these amazing pieces that are fun and fresh go on sale for a limited time, making you feel like you’re getting away with something by buying these pieces! Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale started on Wednesday, and they have a good crop of clothes and accessories on sale for 40% off. I haven’t been able to make it to Nordstrom yet to see what the stores have, but I have definitely been perusing the website, and bookmarking some pieces that I am loving!! Here are some pieces that I will be on the hunt for tomorrow when I hit the Nordstrom store!

I’m heading up to LA this weekend for my friend’s bachelorette festivities!! I’m so excited to go back to my old stomping grounds in West Hollywood and stir up a little trouble with my closest friends! To mark the occasion, I decided to finally wear this AMAZING ASTR pencil skirt that I have but have never worn because I just couldn’t seem to find the right top for it. I was on the hunt this week for the perfect top and was inspired by the current trend of a crop top paired with a pencil skirt. I love this look because it creates a going out look that is sexy but not overtly out there, in other words it’s juuuust right!
Here are some pieces that I used as inspiration during my week-long search for the perfect crop top to pair with my skirt. I am so excited to have fun this weekend and also to rock this look!!

Nicholas Bandage Knit & Mesh Skirt || 12. ASOS Pencil Skirt with Sequins and All Over Sequin Co-Ord Top
Elizabeth and James: Elizabeth and James does casual chic so well. This look is just perfect from the turtle neck to the cozy and comfy oversized sweater. Makes me want to curl up by the fire with a good book and some hot cocoa.
Nanette Lepore: To me this look is a perfect work outfit. The light color combined with the fun print of the top paired with the structured demure silhouette makes it both fashionable and professional!!
Boss: I love this dress because even though its such a simple silhouette, its a piece that makes you look twice. The beading, the structure, the fabric is all beautiful and quite sexy as well. The perfect dress for a night out with your love.
Bibhu Mohapatra: This dress is flawless. The color is like warm caramel, and I love the structure of the dress, from the peek-a-boo shoulders, to the structured bust, and the way the dress falls makes it elegant but sexy at the same time. Absolutely breathtaking!!
Marchesa: I always say that I should have been born in the ’20s so when I saw this collection, I was in LOVE. It was so hard for me to pick my favorite look, but this is definitely a fave because of the combination of the glittery and flirty top with gorgeously tailored wide-leg pants. Love!!
Michael Kors: I am in love with this look because it’s so fresh but it has great throwback elements from ’20s fringe to the prim Peter Pan collar. Love it!
