Colorful Clutches: Having a Moment

I don’t know if it is the summer months or our growing social calendar now that the kids are bit older, but I am reaching for clutches constantly.  I have a few I adore…..a fun kelly green, a basket woven black and my trusted Louis Vuitton…..but not one bright printed or patterned clutch.  I am smitten with the highlighted ones below…still deciding which will be mine:)

I will be back Friday sharing an easy and chic summer look…the shirt/shorts combo is THIRTY DOLLARS TOTAL retail and available to purchase with one of my favorite online shops!  It is a post not to miss!  Happy Wednesday:)

TopShop for Nordstroms: Review

Last week, I had the pleasure of checking out the new Topshop for Nordstroms collection at The Short Hills Mall.  I had such a great time trying things on….I was in the fitting room for over an hour….all in a days work ladies, all in a days work:)  My ambassadorship includes sharing my experience shopping the collection and  I was also able to keep a few of my favorite things.

I love Nordstroms, there store is clean, neat, easy to shop and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, which can be a rarity in retail these days.  I found the TopShop area easily identifiable and had a blast looking at the vast collection.  My favorite thing about this line?  It is totally something both a tween and thirtysomething can wear.  About 15 percent of the line was just a smidge too “young” for me….but everything else, honestly was fantastic.  I could have bought more.  Infact, the light blue romper below was a total surprise….I brought it into the fitting room as a joke (outtake) and it ended up fitting really well.  I decided the color seemed a bit more spring inspired….but I easily could have found a way to legitimize the purchase.  I think the sizing is pretty dead on.  I am typically a mix of small and medium on top and a 6 on the bottom.  That is exactly what I ended up purchasing.  Sharing some of my fitting room photos and then the items that made the cut below!  Happy SHOPPING!

You might be wondering what I ended up going home with? It was really hard deciding, but due the vast collection choices, and affordable price points I was able to get a good amount:)  I ended up with this sexy dress and plan to wear it for a 40th birthday in December, I also scooped up this cute scarf/hat combo.  This white tee fit so perfectly, I know it will be a closet staple and last but certainly not least, I grabbed this ivory cableknit sweater featured below.  I can’t wait to continue to show of all my goodies in style posts in the coming weeks.  For now, I hope you find some outfit inspiration below and Happy Shopping!
