Lush Floral Navy Dress and Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale.

Hey ladies, did you check out my last post ENOUGH!!? It is a detour from my regular posts and a little raw and emotional but I hope you got a chance to read it and let me know what you think. Moving on to today's outfit, I am wearing the lovely 3/4 Sleeve Lush Dress called the 'Carly' Dress. Lush is one of my favorite brands at Nordstrom. It is one of their own brands along Leith and BP. All three brands are very affordable. The 'Carly' Dress has been offered by Nordstrom for three years in a row. I bought mine last year during Nordstrom's big Anniversary sale and I got it for 40% off. The same dress in different prints+colors (but equally pretty to mine) is currently offered at Nordstrom Rack (here) in 6 different patterns. I love the black floral, navy paisley and light blue+light pink prints. This dress is fairly short but I think with tights during the cold months will be fine for a not-so-stuffy office job. Because of its style and length it makes the perfect tunic to style with leggings, jeans and skinny pants, too. I actually want to try mine with my skinny white jeans and my skinny distressed light gray jeans, too.

I did wear this dress twice last Fall too but never was able to photograph it, however this is my first attempt at styling it for Spring/Summer. I quite love the pairing of white, yellow and blue and need to do this combo more often. Plus the flowers of the dress bring out the nude, yellow, blush pink and white tones of all the accessories I paired it with. As you can see it was sunny and this was the first day where it truly felt like Summer here. My F21 Sunnies are oversized and pretty in a Super Light Millenial Pink Color. I also love how the Playful Lavender Cluster Earrings played with the blue dress. But the Fun Mini yellow+White Striped Clutch worked out beautifully to pattern mix with the Floral Dress. I simply love this dress by Nordstrom and want to get it in another color/print plus it is a steal. Speaking of Nordstrom, they are having their half-yearly sale now until Sunday June 4th and below I compiled some of my favorite items I love from this current sale. =) Check them out!

 I think this dress would be so cute for Memorial Day weekend since it is blue and the flowers are white, primarily. I would wear it with red ballet flats like these classic ones or the red mule version of the nude sandals I am wearing today (these ones - they come in 5 colors and go with everything!) and I would pair them with the super adorable red+white striped clutch I have featured on my widget below which is pretty much identical to my yellow+white clutch from today's outfit.

 My current favorites from Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale going on now through June 4th.
