Fashion Sensory - Nordstrom

Time for another fashion post for you and the kiddos (I need a catchy name - suggestions welcomed)!

If you missed last week's post, you can CLICK HERE to read what this is all about.  While you're there, check out some great finds from Old Navy!

This week I'm featuring my favorite store...
Fun fact... I worked there for three months when we first moved to Dallas!  I met some great people, made some amazing memories, and grew to really respect Nordstrom as a company.  They take customer service to a whole new level (including free shipping and returns)!

We went to the mall today because I had a Nordstrom gift card burning a hole in my pocket.  A few of the items below came home with me and I'm excited to share them with you!

Free People is one of my favorite brands.  They tend to go for muted neutrals or bold, saturated colors - not too much in between.  Today's find was definitely the latter.  I love hi-lo tops and this one fit perfectly.  It would look amazing with the Topshop distressed skinny jeans.  I decided I'd rather pick up a few items today rather than one top, so I ended up leaving it at the store.  :(  However, if you don't mind a bit of a splurge, GET THIS TOP.  I haven't stopped thinking about it.

I did purchase the Lush short sleeve top.  It also has a hi-lo shape and really flattering v-neck.  It comes in two other colors, I just opted to get black since I knew I could dress it up with some fun jewelry!

I featured the Leith Racerback dress in a previous favorites post, but I wanted to mention it again here because it is THE dress of the summer.  I have it in coral and dark blue and borrowed the green version to wear to my high school reunion last year.  It's very budget-friendly, which is why most of my friends own it in several colors!

Last year I ordered a Nanette Lepore swimsuit and I think I will stick with this brand forever.  The fit and design are incredibly flattering.  It's great for anyone who prefers a one piece but isn't ready to sport a high-neck speedo.

Kimonos are everywhere right now and are super versatile.  Wear one over a sleeveless blouse or use it as a cover-up when you hit the pool.  I loved this one with the fun details!

The BLANKNYC distressed jeans are flattering and so comfortable.  I love them with this sleeveless white top!  I purchased the Steve Madden wedge sandals today - I went in thinking I was going to buy them in cognac but ended up loving them in nude.  They're adorable, affordable, and a great heel height!

For the kiddos!  Sloane has this Peek top and cuffed shorts and we both love them.  The top is lightweight and has adjustable straps so she'll be able to wear it for several years.  It's also on sale! ;)  Mini Boden is another favorite brand of ours and I loved this boho tunic to pair with the shorts!

When the kids were tiny babies, I fell in love with Peek's graphic tees.  They always have fun quotes and I thought this one was fitting for Mr. Jude.  He also has these shorts - they run a little big so consider that when sizing (Jude is typically a 3T or 4T and but these shorts are 2-3T).  It's a little hard to see the Mini Boden top on here but the shark has a crab in its mouth with a sign that says "Help!"  Cracks me up.  

I own these Kut From The Kloth boyfriend jeans and love them (they'll look great with the nude wedges)!  They run a little big so if you're between sizes, consider sizing down.

A pendant necklace goes with everything and the coral is so pretty!

These Tea Collection dresses are some of my favorites for Sloane.  They're so soft and comfortable - effortless for summer!

Disclosure - every outfit above contains an affiliated link(s), which means we are paid a small commission for each purchase made.  This is my personal "fundraiser" to help pay for Jude's therapy, while also sharing my favorite finds with my favorite people!  Thank you so much!

How did I not know that Nordstrom carried Tea Collection and Mini Boden?! I always buy directly thru the websites, but Nordstrom's prices (and size availability) is better! This is going to be a game changer. Thanks, friend!

I purchased the Kimono. I hope I did it right, I just clicked on the link and purchased. I hope you get the credit. Beach ready now!

This is not that great but the best I could come up with - "A Wardrobe in Progress" to match your blog title?? Either way, keep up the good work, fashion friend!
