If you aren’t afraid of something bold, you’ll love this summer’s neon looks. Neon manicures look especially great with bold and geometric patterns.

Sound scary? Try using neon colors as an accent, or sticking to one neon shade for all your nails instead of using multiple.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is my favorite sale of the year. And the fact that I’m 9 months pregnant and currently on a shopping hold is killing me! But, that hasn’t stopped me from lusting after several favorites. If you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just yet or not sure where to start, here are some of my must-have picks. And remember, prices go up August 4!

Fabulous Boots

{Stuart Weitzman “Highway” Over the Knee Boot; Cole Haan “Brennan” Riding Boot; Steve Madden Quilted Boot; MICHAEL Michael Kors “Guiliana” Peep Toe Bootie; Frye “Molly” Gore Leather Boot; Charles David “Yadira” Bootie}

As you can tell when it comes to boots, I want them all. But what I’m really lusting after this season is a fabulous riding boot and a classic pair like the Frye “Molly” boot has caught my eye. If I didn’t already own a pair of Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots, these would be next on my list. Mine have a stiletto heel but I love this fall’s chunkier look. And P.S., these are a Nordstrom exclusive.

Little Leather Jackets

Living in Arizona, my winter coats hardly get any use. But leather jackets on the other hand are lightweight, cute and perfect for our mild winters.  It’s the perfect excuse to stock up on a few! And these are priced just right.

Pretty Purses

I’ve been dreaming about that Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Satchel, which also comes in a gorgeous luggage tan shade. (Push present, anyone? Ahem…)

Wardrobe Basics

A great pair of skinny jeans, a soft cardigan to layer and pretty accessories are all wardrobe must-haves. May as well stock up while now! There’s always a few cute Dogeared necklaces on sale, too.
