Summer Capsule Wardrobe


If you aren’t familiar with a capsule wardrobe, let me introduce you to something that might literally change your life. The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to buy a few items that you can style a ton of different ways. Some people buy one capsule wardrobe for their entire year while I like to think of capsule wardrobes seasonally. Typically in capsule wardrobes you see less trendy items and more basic, timeless pieces that can be worn year after year and over and over again. This is why people are willing to invest a little more money into a capsule wardrobe because you should get the absolute most wear out of these outfits possible!

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on, we thought it would be fun to select a Summer capsule wardrobe made up of items from the sale in case you wanted to score new, name brands for less but I will also link similar items from other retailers in case you want a more affordable option or in the event that Nordstrom pieces sell out. See below for alternatives as well as outfit styling inspiration made up from items in the capsule wardrobe!

Taking A Step Back + Nordstrom Giveaway

Top: LOFT (on sale) | Shorts: Nordstrom | Sneakers: Johnston & Murphy | Earrings: Similar

Hi Friends! I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but I have taken a step back from the blog these past couple of months for multiple reasons. Some of those I am not able to share right now but others I will certainly let you in on. I am a big proponent of “quality over quantity” meaning that I don’t want to just get on here to write a post if my heart is not in it. I used to think that just getting a post up whether it was read-worthy was what it took to make it in the blogging world. Well I’ve come to learn that posting halfass blog posts doesn’t do either one of us any good. You don’t want to read something that has no point to it and I certainly don’t enjoy writing them! It’s a lose-lose.

These past few months have not been what I expected recovery to be. Not because recovery has been bad, in fact it has been really good! I am pretty much back to a completely normal lifestyle! I have started physical therapy and am currently going 3 times a week. Life is busier than ever with friends, family, events and just life. But then why is it that I feel so drained all of the time? I wake up already dreaming about what time I will be able to make it into bed that night. Usually my heart sinks a little when I realize that it will be another late night with little sleep. That is no way to start the day dreading how much you have to do. It’s discouraging to say the least.

I couldn’t even tell y’all the last time that I cleaned my house. There are still suitcases lying around my room from recent trips because I just haven’t had the time or energy to unpack them. Laundry hasn’t been done in months. There are still Easter decorations up. When I do have the time for these things, all I want to do is relax. Yet I can’t even seem to unplug and relax anymore without the worry and guilt of things that I should be doing. It’s a viscous cycle that I want out of!

My cup is empty. What do I mean by that? I have finally realized that I am pouring into so much that is not fulfilling me. All of these things that I am spending my time on should not have to feel like work. Friends, events, blogging, dinner dates, whatever it may be. I am so used to keeping a busy schedule that lately I couldn’t figure out why my busy schedule was not keeping me entertained. In fact why it was doing the exact opposite. So that’s why I have taken a step back to try to get things back in order. To try and figure out what it is that motivates me. To unplug and enjoy being present. To appreciate the little things. To come home to a clean house. And above all to be happy with where I am spending my time.

So many of us fill our schedules thinking that that is the way to success. Well hey if that is working for you then you just keep on keeping on! But if you are pouring into a lot of things that are not fulfilling you, you will eventually crash and burn. Instead of trying to pack “you” time into your already packed schedule (because so many people will suggest this), it might be necessary to take a step back altogether and reevaluate. There are very few things that we can give away and never get back, but time is one of those so choose how you spend it wisely!

I’ll get off of my soapbox now 🙂 With all of that being said, I wanted to let y’all know that I will still be around. I am just taking some time for me and still trying to blog in the process because it really is such a healing tool when I do finally get behind the keyboard. It’s the getting there that is the hard part! That being said, although I am a fashion blogger, recovery has taught me that I love writing about personal topics. Dating, real life, the messy parts, that’s what I have loved writing about recently and you guys seem to be loving it too! So you can expect to be seeing more of that!

Now onto the good stuff, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is just a little over a month away. This sale is HUGE guys. I’m talking full price items, even designer ones, on major sale. So much stuff flew off the shelves in the first couple of hours last year so you definitely have to be on your game!

Nordstrom Sale Picks under $100

Nordstrom Sale Picks under $100 | NSale Favorites | It's All Chic To Me

It’s officially the best (sale) time of the year and the best part is that you can shop it directly from your couch and pj’s! Nordstrom is my go-to for just about anything I ever need. There is something for all budgets and the customer service is amazing. Free shipping and returns is a major plus!!

Currently the sale is only open to cardholders but don’t worry if you aren’t one. They came out with a sneak peak of what will be open to the public and there is nothing “sneak peak” about it. There are hundreds of pages to sort through, and yes it is all AMAZING items to sift through, but hundreds nonetheless. So I’ve made your life much easier and picked some of my favorite sale items for you so hopefully you have a good starting point!

Since you all know I like to ball on a budget, all of my picks (minus this bag and these jeans) are under $100. I do want to point out just a few pieces I have been coveting for a long time and might just have to give in to. Do you remember the beautiful Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots that were all the rage last year? Or the classic Tory Burch riding boots? While the sale is a great time to stock up on budget friendly pieces, it’s also the time to grab that piece you’ve always wanted. After all it’s on major sale, so it’s almost like you are making money right?! 😉

The sale extends over the next three weeks and will be open to the public shortly so get your shopping carts ready! I will be adding items throughout the sale to my shop page so make sure you check back regularly for all of the best sales.
