Lust List: August 2015

This month, I am having a really hard time not thinking about fall! All I want is to wear a sweater. Luckily, a cold front came through yesterday and cooled things off a bit, but it will still be quite warm here in Houston for a few more months. Since I am thinking about cooler days to come, I can’t help but gravitate towards hues that echo the fall season– bordeaux, camel, and army green with lots of black, white, and crisp denim for good measure. For me, the next couple of months are about transitional dressing– pieces that work when it is sweltering hot one day and cooler the next. You’ll notice most of the pieces I am currently loving have a bit of a seventies slant, too. I love blazers and jackets because they are perfect from one season to the next, they are great for traveling, and they instantly make me feel more polished.

Since this is a Lust List after all, the pieces I can’t stop thinking about lately are these Valentino Rockstud Pumps in the perfect neutral color (I tried them on in Las Vegas and loved them after I’d resisted this popular style for so long since everyone has them. They work with everything, though!), this new J.Crew leather jacket in oxblood with gold hardware, and this super chic Saint Laurent cross body bucket bag in the most perfect shade of gray. What are you lusting after this month?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must-Haves

Nordstrom’s eagerly anticipated annual Anniversary Sale starts tomorrow! Nordstrom cardholders have early access to the sale, but it opens up to everyone tomorrow. Could this be where the term “Christmas in July” comes from? I’ve scoured the sale and have pulled together what I think are the best items in the sale. Nearly $700 off a chic Burberry leather Moto jacket? Yes, please! Tory Burch riding boots (the most comfortable boots I own) for a steal? Sign me up! More than $500 off a stylish Chloe handbag and nearly $200 off Rag and Bone Booties? There is no better time to buy! Seriously, if you’ve been thinking about purchasing some of these investment pieces, you can save hundreds by buying during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I have also included some more affordable picks like a great pair of strappy sandals for less than $70 and one of my go-to hostess gifts, an Antica Farmacista Fragrance Diffuser for more than $20 off the regular price! The sale is on until August 3rd, but if you see something you like, act fast because at these prices, everything is flying!
