This is one of my absolute favorite tops. It's from last summer and I throw it on with jeans or shorts whenever I'm in a rush. I was inspired by the catalog photo to pair it with olive linen shorts, and the result reminded me of an outfit from last year so I posted a side-by-side comparison. Woven belt or woven clutch / pants or shorts: which version do you like more?

We've officially crossed into safe-to-wear-white-jeans territory, so why not throw some white shoes into the mix, too! White pumps have been really trendy the last couple years but I was hesitant to jump on the trend. What sold me on this pair is that they aren't a bright glowing white (almost an ivory undertone), and the python toe breaks up the white even more. I founds some similar shoe options, below. Would you ever wear white pumps? Before/after Labor Day?

We had a blast in Alaska but it's great to be back! The cruise giveaway ended yesterday and I'll be notifying the winner in the next few days, plus sharing pics from our trip soon. In the meantime, I'm kicking things off with a look for less inspired by the always-adorable Reese. I've had this top for several years so I appreciated a new idea for wearing it again this summer!

Also, bargain alert: it's Nordstrom's semi-annual sale! I love Nordstrom but I also love getting a great deal, so this sale is perfect. More than 11,000 items are marked down 40% off or more. Some of these items are under $25 and everything pictured is under $175!

I was asked by ShopStyle to share the Nordstrom sale with you (super easy since I would tell you anyway!). All other opinions, shopping choices and editorial decisions are solely my own.
