Happy Memorial Day friends! Whatever your plans may be today I do hope that you take a moment to thank all of those who fought for our freedom and continue to do so; it’s easy to take for granted but the state of our world today is hopefully a reminder (albeit grim) that our liberties should not be taken for granted. Freedom is not free and I am grateful to those who have fought for us all. God bless America!
Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of summer (the first day of summer is June 21st!) so while you may be in the market for a great swimsuit you may also be in need of dresses for graduations, weddings, and other special events. Lucky for all of us Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale runs through June 3. I’ve rounded up some fabulous dresses for all occasions and the best part is nothing is over $75 in fact most are way under because that’s how I roll. Shipping and returns are always free so you can shop Nordstrom with confidence. As a matter of fact I ordered a few dresses in multiple sizes so I can enjoy trying them on in the comfort of my own home – my bedroom is my favorite fitting room of all time!
You know my love for gingham is real and runs deep. Check out this beauty. The cut is timeless and flattering on every body type. You’ll wear it forever! Now if you prefer a maxi dress than this one is for you. If you’d rather have a solid maxi this one seems to have a cult following and is available in other colors.
Headed somewhere a little more elegant, like a wedding or retirement party? Take a look at this Eliza J dress, so stunning! If you prefer to show a little skin than this one would be perfect! So many pretty colors and great reviews!
Now my very favorite category is a dress that can pull double duty – ya know the kind that can be worn either dressy or casual. These are all available at insanely good prices. This one and this one are on their way to me. I realized I need a little black dress for warmer weather. Of course I’ll share them once they arrive. I’m including pictures in the pink and blue ones I’ve had for a few years. The pink is a medium and the blue is a small.
The racerback dress is available in prints as well as solids for even more versatility. I’m telling you this really is a great all occasion dress. This body con dress is all the rage and on sale in this color. Again it’s another one I’ve seen worn dressed up as well casually and it’s always stunning, ruched in all the right places! The brand Free People has a cult following and is known for comfort and ease as well as high quality materials, this simple summer dress checks all the boxes and the sale price is a steal for sure!
I hope you saw something that interested you. It’s always good to have a few dresses you can rely on for any event or occasion and when they’re on sale it’s time to scoop’em up!
Enjoy your Monday friends, as I write this on Sunday morning the storm clouds are looming and we are expecting close to 80 people for Collin’s graduation party! I’ll be sure to fill you in on how things go but I am most certainly hoping to have an enjoyable and restful Monday, in fact it’s the last Monday of my forties – yikes!
