My Picks from the Nordstrom Fall Sale 2017

The Nordstrom fall sale is here! For those of you who don’t know, Nordstrom has to be one of my all-time favorite retailers. High-end products, killer customer service, and amazing sales several times a year. The fall sale began Nov. 2 and will carry on through the 12th so there is a good amount of time to shop.
I have included several pairs of denim, because who doesn’t need a good pair of jeans? This pair from Topshop is a classic mid-wash and will stay in your closet for a long time. I absolutely love the way Topshop denim fits and am a big fan. You can check out one of my favorite pairs here, in my post on embroidered denim. If you love those, you should check out this pair from the fall sale!

I absolutely love these Nike tennis shoes because I think they go so well from the gym right to class and off for a study date after. They are the perfect pair to top off a sporty chic outfit.
One of my favorite things from these items are the black thigh high boots from Steve Madden. They are perfect for pairing with sweaters, dresses, and everything in between this fall and winter! Stay on the look-out for an upcoming post on 5 ways to style thigh high boots. I think they would look amazing with a pair of high-waisted jeans and a bodysuit.

I also included plenty of classic pieces. I think when looking at higher end stores like Nordstrom, the primary focus should be pieces that you want to last and intend to keep in your closet for years to come. As a college student, the value of the product I am buying is incredibly important. For instance, if I know I will only wear something once or twice, I likely won’t spend more than $15-$20 on the item, unless I know it is a high resale value.

On the other hand, if I know an item will last years in my closet, a classic coach bag, the perfect pair of riding boots, or a cashmere sweater, a higher price tag is easily justified. Generally, I am looking for those kinds of pieces, at an even better price, when it comes to Nordstrom sales.

Review: AMI Clubwear

I had the amazing opportunity to work with AMI Clubwear through their fashion blogger program. This company is seriously AWESOME. If you are looking for that outfit that is all over instagram and pinterest, you will find it on their site.


All of the items featured on the site are incredibly trendy and all perfect for the everyday babe budget. Most items on the website range from $15-$30. The website itself can be difficult to navigate, solely because of the sheer quantity of different items they offer.

Also, don’t sleep on their instagram page. Not only do they feature some of their favorite items (and soon to be yours), they include the appropriate keyword to make finding that item fast and easy for their customers.

The quality is about equivalent to most fast fashion stores (think H&M or Forever21), or better. Overall, I have been very impressed with the quality of the items I received to try. I have worn and washed both the purple bikini and the navy blue crop top multiple times and experienced no fading or shrinking (despite putting both in the dryer).


Also… I GET SO MANY COMPLIMENTS WEARING THEIR CLOTHES. Seriously. If you want everyone asking “where did you get that” this is your store. Plus, who doesn’t love an insta-worthy outfit?? The items themselves are beautiful. The details on the blue lace jumpsuit are very pretty and the fabric is so comfortable, it feels just like a pair of leggings #winning. It is easily one of my favorites I have from their store (although picking a favorite is nearly impossible).


If you decide to check them out, you can use the code “Kelly50” to save 50% off your purchase. Don’t forget to show off your new clothes and tag @Amiclubwear on instagram!

Floral Fantasy

This Spring/Summer embroidered denim has been making waves. From storefronts like TOPSHOP and ASOS to celebrities such as Bella Hadid, this trend is EVERYWHERE. I have always been a big fan of very feminine items, particularly floral prints, so I was quickly on board. After weeks of searching, I scored the perfect pair at Nordstrom Rack from TOPSHOP! I think my favorite thing about this trend is that it can be incredibly subtle like the pair I have here, or a full blown floral frenzy! This makes the trend more easily adjusted to each person’s individual style. 

First off, I LOVE the fit of these jeans. Mine are the MOTO Jamie Jeans from TOPSHOP, and their petite sizing fit me perfectly! I chose to pair the bottoms with a solid color crop top (from Free People) to keep the focus on the detail of the floral embroidery at the bottom of the jeans. I think the lace adds just enough interest to the top without overpowering the outfit.

I kept it simple with camel colored sandals to keep my look casual. While I chose to keep my look more on the casual end, I think this trend could easily be paired with a girly blouse and heels for a night out!
