An Under $50 Floral Fantasy at the Nordstrom Sale
July 19th, 2018
Summer fashion is all about flower power — but it also makes a fab fall transition. From fun floral frocks and blouses to botanical pumps, pants and even blooming blazers, the summer to fall transition season is a venerable garden of fashionable buds. But even with all the colorful florals adorning separates and accessories, my heart will always belong to the floral dress. Here’s a look at one of my favorite floral dresses — and it’s no shrinking violet. Plus, did I mention it’s under $50 now at the Nordstrom Sale?
I admit it; I’m a sucker for a fabulous drop-waist dress. On days when I want to look sharp but my brain can’t quite create the perfect outfit, I reach for one of these posh frocks that never disappoint. Feel like defining my waist? I’ll grab a fun belt, like this vintage number. I opted for this blue and red color palette for this dress, since I love the way blues make my eyes pop. But purples and shades of green are one haute trend for fall (and this dress comes in a variety of hues).
My eyes were poppin’ in this shoot for another reason as well. My girl Jorden at Nordstrom Milwaukee — the store’s beauty concierge — created a fun and fresh fall makeup look for this shoot, which included using the brand new YSL Foundation Stick and a gorgeous Chanel blue eyeliner, which she applied to my water line. But perhaps it’s the richly hued Chanel lip gloss that is the star of this fall makeup must!
I am a simple girl at heart; and that extends to my accessories. When you are wearing a stunning floral dress, I think it’s best to let it be the centerpiece and major statement. However, I feel naked without the appropriate accessories. A few shiny bangles and delicate earrings, a mini clutch in a white hue that complements this dress, and white pumps that amp up the leg appeal are a recipe for floral fabulousness.
