1. Flowy Maxi Dress

What I love about this exact dress is how flattering it will be on all body types. Because you have the ability to tie it at the waist, it allows you to sinch it in on the smallest part of you, while the rest of the fabric flows down. Plus, a high-neck is always a chic choice!

This dress also comes in a Blue Floral color, a Burgundy pattern and Leopard!

2. Lace Halter Dress

This dress speaks for itself! It says classy and chic while still fun and flirty. The midi length makes it more appropriate if you’re attending a ceremony in a church and can fit with both more casual weddings along with those that are more formal, based on the shoes and accessories you choose.

This gorgeous dark blue/green color is perfect for fall and it also comes in burgundy, and a pretty orange color.

3. Classic Black Jumpsuit

With jumpsuits very much on trend, you can definitely get away with wearing one to the next wedding you attend. To keep things simple, you can never go wrong with a classic black jumpsuit like this one!

If comfort is one of your top contenders when it comes to finding something to wear to a wedding event, the jumpsuit is your bff. You can still completely dress it up with a killer pair of heels and fun accessories while still feeling comfortable. Win, win!

4. Dusty Rose Pleated Dress

This gorgeous Ali & Jay dress caught my eye because of the color – one of those that will look great on several skin tones and can be transitioned so well from warmer temps to cool. I would pair with these snakeskin heels!

5. Lace Midi Dress

I’ve always found this style to be perfect for a wedding whether formal or more casual – it’s that great in-between piece! This hunter green color is gorgeous for fall! It also comes in Black, Navy and White.

6. On Trend with Leopard

Depending on the type of wedding and venue location, this Banana Republic dress is perfect for a more casual setting. The leopard print is super on trend for fall so you’ll be able to take this piece multiple places!

Pair with this belt and these shoes!

7. One Shoulder Dress with Bow

This ASOS Dress is such a gorgeous color for fall! The length and overall look would be perfect for a more formal wedding and the one shoulder is flattering without being too revealing.

Pair with these earrings, this clutch, and these shoes!

8. LBD

I’ve always thought you can never have too many little black dresses in your closet! A safe bet for the majority of weddings and multiple ways and occasions to wear it too. I love the lace on this LBD!

What is the opposite of ‘little black dress’ anyways? Long black dress? 🙂 Here’s a few classic longer black dresses: LBD – Strapless / LBD – Off the Shoulder / LBD – Lace

9. Blush Long Sleeve Dress

Being that blush is a color that’s on trend all year long, you can never go wrong with it! This piece is especially fun for the fall/winter months because of it’s velvet material.

Pair with this leopard clutch for a pop of fun pattern and these gold earrings!

10. Play with Print

If this floral midi dress doesn’t say fall, I don’t know what does! It’s definitely one of my favorites on the list. Easily dress it up to attend your next fall wedding or dress it down with sneakers and a denim jacket for date night or a brunch event with friends!

And there you have it! Tons of options for your upcoming celebrations and all dresses you can wear more than once/to multiple occasions!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 – How to Shop

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 – How to Shop

Are you ready for this?! Set your alarm, my friends! One of the best sales of the year is here! Starting tomorrow, July 12 at 12:30pm EST, Early Access for Nordstrom Cardholders begins! For everyone else, the sale opens on July 19 and runs through August 4.

Even if you aren’t normally a Nordstrom shopper, you’ll most definitely want to still check out the sale!

About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you’re not living under a rock, I’m sure you’e been seeing/hearing all the hype about the #2019NSale, and for good reason! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale includes thousands of brand new arrivals from your favorite brands at limited-time low prices. This is a great time to refresh your wardrobe basics, check out the hottest fall trends and stock up on beauty and home essentials.

Brands Included: Tory Burch, Steve Madden, Free People, Charlotte Tilbury, Adidas, Vince Camuto, Barefoot Dreams, Sam Edelman, Mac, Madewell, Nike, Kiehl’s and MANY more!

How to Shop & Prepare

1. Use the Nordstrom Credit Card

The absolute best way to shop the sale is by having the Nordstrom Credit Card. You’ll be gaining access to shop the event a FULL WEEK before the masses. You’ll get first dibs on the best deals! This is KEY to the sale as items will sell out very quickly.

I’m one that is very selective about store credit cards and last year I decided to pull the trigger on the Nordy Card before the sale, and let me tell you… best. decision. ever. There’s ton’s of perks with the card and you’ll automatically earn a $40 Nordstrom Note to shop the sale! Free Money! $$$

Tip: Use your Personal Double Points Day(s) when you shop the sale to earn 2x the points!

There’s still time to get approved for the Nordstrom card just in time to shop! Click here.

2. Create a Shopping List

The best way to prepare for the sale is to check out the Full Anniversary Sale Catalog for a sneak peak of all the best items you’ll want to snag!

Generally the event is geared towards fall and winter collections but there will be several items you can were now! To help impulse buying, make a general list of the staples you need in your closet and only buy items that you really love!

My favorite way to shop the sale is to start with basics and staple pieces (denim, booties, neutral cardigans, leggings) that I will wear multiple times, and then layer in a few trendy pieces I have my eye on.

Tip: Set a budget for yourself and try to stick with it! There is so much hype around this sale and it can be tempting to purchase way more than what you need.

3. Shop Online

I highly recommend shopping from the comfort of your own couch! Stores are CRAZY during the sale event! Fitting rooms have long lines and its just chaos. If you need to try something on or are unsure about sizing, I recommend ordering two sizes and returning the ones that don’t work.

Nordstrom has super easy free shipping and returns and you can always opt for Buy Online and Pick Up in Store or Curbside Pickup.

Tip: Make sure your Norstrom online account is set up with your credit card and shipping information so you’re ready to just add to bagged purchase when it’s time.

4. Follow Along As I Share the Sale

I’ll be sharing my picks throughout the sale so be sure to follow along on Instagram @everydayraleightay as well as the LIKETOKNOW.IT app to easily stay up to date on my favorites and finds of the event!

While my pics will be more focused on women’s fashion, I’ll be covering my favorite beauty, home and maybe even some Men’s products for the hubby!

Stay tuned and I can’t wait to shop the sale with y’all!
