Of course you do. :)
I mean, the $1000 part. I can't get over it.
If I won $1,000 to Nordstrom, the practical side of me would want to get lots of little things.
Like 8 scarves, 5 shirts, at least 3 pairs of wedges, some make-up, a couple of pairs of jeans, etc....
But the other side of me?
Well, I'd want to blow it all on one fabulous (and super expensive) bag or a Michele watch.
Whose with me? ;)
When Nordstrom reached out to see if I would like to highlight some of their new spring and summer accessories (I'm guessing somebody saw that that I'm OBSESSED with and won't stop talking about my MK watch and sequin bracelets) I was all "Um, YEAH!"
And then I found out that by doing so I would also be able to host the giveaway.
And then I was all, "Um, HECK YEAH!!!!"
I'd call that a WIN-WIN.
I've got some great news!
For example, if you share the give away with at least 3 friends, you can get
10 ADDITIONAL ENTRIES!
Before we get to today's post, I wanted to post my Outfit Of The Day from Thursday.
I got my embroidered Vigoss jeans in the mail on Wednesday, and I wore them on Thursday.
The outfit was simple, but I loved it!
Click HERE for this super light and textured sweater.
It's sheer, so you have to wear a tank under it. I am in love with this look, and the sweater is light enough to be worn even on summer nights.
For size reference, I'm wearing a small in the sweater.
Click HERE for jeans that are 40% OFF right now which makes them UNDER $40!
For size reference, I'm wearing a 27 in the jeans.
Click HERE for leopard flats.
Click HERE to see the post on my signature necklace.
Click HERE for silver MK watch.
Click HERE for the TB wrap bracelet.
I love the color of this bracelet, and I just think it's cool! I got it for Christmas a couple of years ago. When I opened it, I wasn't sure about it. But now, I'm sure about it. I LOVE it.
My heart goes pitter patter just writing the above words.
I headed to Nordstrom and do what I do best: I tried on like 7,000 things and sorted through it all to find my favorites items; items that I knew would be your favorites too.
How did I know? Because I just do.
And Nordstrom? They know what they are doing when it comes to finishing off an outfit with jewels. And they have a seriously large and varied selection of both styles and price points.
Anyway, I know from your feedback that seeing items in real pictures is often better than seeing them on the website because it gives you a better feel for what it looks like.
So, I took one for the team and headed to Nordstrom and tried on every piece of jewelry that stood still. And because I'm super dedicated ;), I also went ahead and tried on some shoes and some bags. Like I said. I'm super dedicated. :)
HOWEVER, before we get started with my try on marathon, I want to highlight a new collaboration that just launched this week.
A launch that I didn't even know about until this week.
Hello Nordstrom? Hello BaubleBar? Can't I get a call? A text? Anything?
I would have LOVED a heads up. :)
Basically, Bauble Bar and Nordstrom got married and had lots of fabulous babies.
Click HERE for the entire BaubleBar collaboration.
I want the stud earrings NOW and all 3 bracelets YESTERDAY.
I just got stud earrings like the ones above, and I'm wearing the heck out of them! I haven't worn studs in years, and I was afraid that thy wouldn't show up on my ears, but I was wrong. They show up and I love them! I'm going to be wearing these babies all summer long. And with THIS pair at $24, I might have to pick up an additional couple of colors! They're just fun and fresh!
If you have any girlfriends with birthdays coming up, something from this collection would be SO FUN to give!
ALL SCARVES HIGHLIGHTED HERE ARE ONLY $18! $18 people!
I do however happen to be wearing the same shirt. Try and act surprised.
Click HERE for the green floral scarf!
After trying on the affordable scarves, I headed over to some bags.
And I tried on several NICE bags that I adored.
You know me, I'm all about balance.
Cheap scarves. Nice bags.
Mandarin MK crossbody (couldn't find exact bag online, but lots of options HERE) /
Kate Spade taupe crossbody HERE (20% off!)
Rebecca Minkoff "Swing" Shoulder bag HERE
If you have kids, a great crossbody bag is necessary.
If you're going on vacation, a great crossbody bag is necessary.
I got my first crossbody bag for Christmas this past year, and I have NO IDEA how I didn't have one before. They are just so dang convenient.
It's 20% OFF, and it comes 5 other colors.
And HERE is my favorite that I tried on.
Sadly, it's sold out online in this yellow color, but I do like the "hot red".
However, check out a super similar bag HERE in lots of hot colors including a fun red, navy, coral, yellow, and hot pink (and it's 20% OFF!)
AND it has INCREDIBLE reviews!
Yeah. I love this bag.
Okay....after I wrote everything above, I decided to create a happy little collage.
Tell me it doesn't make you happy. I dare you.
If you're interested in one of the bags below, just click on the image!
Just for fun, do it right now, just hover over one of the purses you like below and click on it!
Ponytail holders HERE , also available in natural colors HERE
The sales girl said people go crazy over these, and the reviews supported her statement!
LOVE make-up bag (couldn't find online...sorry!)
You know how much I LOVE my Stella and Dot renegade bracelets (they were even on my SPRING GO TO list for crying out loud).
Well played Nordstrom, Well played.
but these are a pretty great alternative.
They are GREAT for stacking with watches and other bracelets. They just kind of mold perfectly wherever you need them.
Listen to me. Get them. You will wear them constantly.
And I'm telling you, you need at least 2 colors.
LOVING the STACK RING LOOK right now.
Click HERE for all of the color choices with these Ariella stack rings.
(And cause I know you're going to ask...the nail color is OPI's Cajun Shrimp!)
And I think it's affordable for what it is.
(Please excuse the dirty mirror.)
This would be a GREAT present for Mother's Day.
Just send this post to your hubby with the subject line "HINT HINT: Mama wants the MK necklace."

Miss Kendra was so smart to bring out all of the hot new neon colors for spring and summer!
Before we move on...let's just forget about the earrings for a minute...and let's talk about my skin.
Click HERE for all jewelry from the Junior's department...most of it under $30,

And they also come in 2 additional colorways!
Really, click HERE.
I love the gold strap and how the bright stripes peek out from under my foot! These would go with EVERYTHING! And they are only $39.95!
Here's the surprising part: even though they were super flat, they were comfortable!
(I didn't have time to have the guy go get me the shoes, so hence my MK moccasin
on the other foot.)
These were 2 sizes too big for me, but I loved them so much I wanted to share them!
They also come in black, nude, and red patent as well as a metallic gold.
I think they're totally sexy and would be the perfect shoe for so many spring and summer dresses!
Click HERE for all the choices.
Click HERE for some sandals, flats, wedges, boots, and heels!
Click HERE for an awesome pair of new wedge flip flops that could be dressy or casual, depending on how you style them.
And before I left the shoe department, I might have bought THESE.
Okay, I did. I bought them. Sorry I'm not sorry.
I plan on wearing them with jeans and my new bright yellow top from Anthro.
The color. The cut out. The heel height.
I love everything about these shoes.
And they come in several colors including black and cognac leather and hot pink patent!
And then on my way out the door, I found THESE.
And I fell.
I fell hard.
I MEAN GIRLS! FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS ARE BACK!
AND THEY'RE BADDER THAN EVER!
How cute will these be all spring and summer long?!? So bright and fun and playful!
My silver watch is sold out, but you can find a similar silver one HERE.
I just opened a blog comment from a reader from yesterday (thanks Kate!) saying that Hunter boots are 20% off!
IT'S APRIL, WHICH MEANS IT'S RAINY SEASON, WHICH MEANS NOW IS THE TIME TO FINALLY COMMIT TO THESE BABIES!
Here I am in just one of my red Hunter pics.
I can't even tell you how much I love them. Every single time I wear them they just make me happy.
And I know they seem expensive for a pair of rain boots....And if you're anything like me you are wondering if you they will be worth it.
TRUST ME ON THIS.
THEY'RE WORTH IT.
