Sale PSA: the Nordstrom Anniversary sale ends on Sunday evening (prices go back up on Monday). In addition to my original picks, I also love this Pleione mixed media tunic for $38 (perfect for tucking into skirts and/or layering), this Vince v-neck sweater with a very cool ombre effect for $220, these Rag & Bone zip skinny jeans for $160, and a great quality, oversized boyfriend v-neck cashmere sweater (perfect over leggings) from Pure Amici, for $200.
1. I recently shared these Cole Haan sandals as part of a sale PSA (they’re currently 33% off!), but I thought I would share my own picture of them as well.
I bought these as a casual sandal that I could get away with as a “work” sandal, and they’ve been perfect. They have enough height to make a difference, but are comfortable enough that I can wear them all day and run around the office. I would call them a sandal version of the Ferragamo Vara pump, my go to closed toe comfortable work shoe.
The espadrille wedge and rubber sole adds more comfort in my opinion. I can see these lasting through several summers of very heavy wear.
2. Someone sent me this article awhile ago, and I’ve had it bookmarked in Chrome for years. I finally clicked on it while cleaning out all my old shopping links (I know others out there must suffer from shopping bookmark clutter), and printed it out. There’s a lot of great recipes and all perfect for summer! Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals via the NY Times.
