Today's Everyday Fashion: Cabo San Lucas

Forever 21 tribal dress

Fresh off the plane at the Los Cabos airport! I had a work trip to L.A. this week, so it was a quick two hour flight. I intended to wear this dress for dinner with white strappy heels and a little white belt, but was in the mood to wear it to the airport that day so I switched things up (my necklace was also backwards in every single photo - whoopsie). I met up with JJ at the airport (pic below) and now we start our mini-vacation to celebrate my upcoming birthday! More pics soon!

About the dress: I wandered into Forever 21 last week to shop for a swim cover up and wound up with this little number. It looks more like it came from a boutique like Francesca's than Forever 21. I think that's partly due to the fact that it's from the Love 21 line, which is a bit nicer (and more expensive). Love 21 also has a larger fit, so I went one size down than I normally would at Forever 21!

Mint peplum top outfit

Today's loose interpretation of a Jessica Alba outfit includes my favorite statement necklace lately. Why choose one color when you can have the whole rainbow?! I love the way statement necklaces like these look over solid, high neck shirts. More rainbow-y goodness to dress up your basic tops below!

Today's Everyday Fashion: The Fall Sale

Nordstrom's fall sale: cobalt top and black faux leather skirt
Cobalt top and leather skirt outfit idea

If you've ever gone shopping at the end of July, you may have experienced the "which season to buy for" dilemma?! It's blazing hot outside, but stores are carrying fall clothes already. What's left of summer is on sale, but is there enough warm weather remaining to wear it? Enter Nordstrom's fall sale: the best of both worlds. Right now brand-name fall items have been reduced and on August 4th, the prices go back up. Today I'm wearing a top and skirt from the sale; both items are versatile enough that I can wear them now and get a jump on upcoming fall/winter fashion. I also ordered the Michael Kors cognac satchel below (not c/o) as a possible replacement for my current cognac purse that's worn out. I'm curious to see how it looks in person, but rIght now the price is $245, and will go back up to $368 on August 4th. Totally worth a shot for a deal like that!    

Top: Tahari c/o Nordstrom, $58 (sold out in blue)
Skirt: Vince Camuto c/o Nordstrom, $85 
Shoes: Calvin Klein c/o Ross, $39 (similar)
Purse: Sole Society, $30 (similar)
Necklace: My Stella & Dot
Earrings: My Stella & Dot
Approx. dates: Shoes and purse are one year ago. Skirt and top are new.
