Long Sleeve Dress & Luca Love

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! So I posted a picture of myself on Instagram showing my ileostomy bag and holy cow, the response has been amazing. I never expected so many people to like and comment and see and just be inspired by it. I can't tell you how great that feels. I'm putting all of this out there to help people, and to see that I am makes me so incredibly happy. I can't even put into words how grateful I am for all of the love and support. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. I'm going to do a post later this week talking about my ileostomy - stay tuned! 

I snagged this dress from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and it is definitely going to be in heavy rotation. I'm actually considering picking it up in a couple other colors I love it that much. The fit is perfect and it's definitely one of those easy to throw on and look cute pieces. Plus, the bell sleeves and cutout detail in the back give the dress an extra little something. Also, I just love wearing dresses like this with booties in the fall. I can't wait to add a fur vest to this look once the temps get cooler!

Now let's talk about my bracelets! Stacking bracelets with a statement watch is one of my absolute favorite jewelry trends. The three bracelets I'm wearing are from Luca Love, a company that specializes in bracelets handmade by low income women in Columbia. Their mission is to provide opportunities of employment and essential necessities to those who need it most. If you couldn't tell from my last post, I like to support companies that give back. I love when my passion for fashion (hey, I'm a cheesy rhymer!) can do something good for other people. Definitely check out Luca Love bracelets, they have a ton of super cute options!

Make it a great week friends, thanks for stopping by!

#Nsale Clothing Haul & Review

Hi friends! Sorry for being a little MIA this week. Things have just been a little crazy lately! 

All of my purchases from the #nsale have finally arrived and I'm SO excited for my new pieces! I wanted to do a quick haul and review of all the things I got. 

Look 1

Lush Bell Sleeve Shift Dress ($32) - LOVE this dress! The fabric is pretty lightweight. I love the bell sleeves and the cutout on the back. Super easy to throw on with booties or even riding boots for fall. Comes in a bunch of different color/print options. Fits true to size, I'm wearing a size small.  

Chelsea28 Faux Leather Chain Clutch ($30) - Can double as a clutch or a shoulder bag. Love the champagne color!

Steve Madden Bootie ($100) - Love these! They're a little bit taller than I thought they would be - I'm used to booties with a slightly smaller heel. They're still really comfortable and true to size. 

Look 2

BP Cardigan ($31) - Super comfortable and easy to throw on. Comes in a bunch of colors and fits true to size. I'm wearing a size small. Similar hooded style here

AG Denim ($164) - This is my first pair of AG jeans - I've heard really good things about the fit and quality. So far so good! I love the fit and the amount of stretch they have. Definitely fit true to size.

Lush Knit Tee ($20) - This isn't part of the sale but it's hands down one of my favorite tops ever. I have it in three different colors. Fits a little oversized. I have both a medium and a small in this top and actually prefer the medium because I like the oversized look. I'm wearing the small in this photo. 

Phase 3 Floppy Wool Hat ($20) - The color and look are perfect for fall. I love the stitch detail around the edge. I love hats like this for fall - perfect for covering up a bad hair day and they instantly make an outfit look chic.


Look 3

Free People Open Back Top ($45) - I am obsessed with this top! I love anything with an open back. The material is on the lighter side and super soft. It looks really cute with fun strappy back bralettes. Fit is slightly oversized, I'm wearing a small. 

Look 4

Lush V-Neck Tee ($15) - If you follow me on Snapchat (@mallorysauer), then you saw me talk about this tee. I like my t-shirts to fit a little baggy and oversized, and I wish this one was a little bigger. I'm wearing a medium as that usually gives me the oversized fit/look I like, but I wish I had ordered a large. I like my tees to be a little longer so I can tuck the front in, which I can't do with this one without it looking silly. Other than the fit, this tee is super soft and comfortable. Perfect for wearing with cardigans and scarves. 

Topshop Moto Skinny ($40) - Not part of the sale, but one of my favorite pairs of pants ever. White jeans in the fall is one of my favorite trends. 

Look 5

Topshop Patchwork Cardigan ($56) - One of my favorite purchases from the sale! This cardigan seems to be one of the more popular items from the sale, I've seen so many people wearing it! It's so comfortable and soft. Fit is oversized, I'm wearing a small. 

Steve Madden Bootie ($87) - Super comfortable and the color is perfect for fall. I love the side slits. Fit is true to size. 

Look 6

Treasure&Bond Sweater ($50) - I love this sweater so much! It's super comfortable and soft and the fit is just perfect. I get kind of funny with v-neck sweaters because I feel like sometimes they can look weird, but this one is perfect! It fits slightly oversized, which I love, and I'm wearing a size small. 

Look 7

Rails Plaid Shirt ($99) - I love Rails tops. At first I was a little skeptical because I thought the price point was a little high for plaid/button up shirts. However, after owning two now, I will say they are totally worth the price. The material is soft and has a really nice drape. I have THIS shirt that I wear all the time. That being said, I ordered this plaid in a size small as that's what size I have in the chambray, however the fit of the plaid is slightly different. Again, I like these tops to be a little baggier and oversized and for some reason the plaid didn't fit that way like the chambray does. I'm wearing a size small in this photo, but will probably return for a size medium. 

Helmut Lang Leather Pants (not part of sale) - I wore these pants ALL fall/winter last year, and this year will be no different. Leather leggings are a wardrobe must and closet staple in my opinion. There are some great faux leather options that are part of the sale. These for $65, these for $72, and these for $53.


Ok that's it! There are so many great things that are part of the anniversary sale this year. The sale ends August 8, meaning prices of all these items will go up, so stock up now while you still can! You can check out my initial post with some of my favorite pieces here. I know some of these items are low in stock or sold out, however they've been restocking things so keep checking back!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks!

Have you guys heard of this store called Nordstrom? Apparently there's some big sale going on? Kidding. It's that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and it is without a doubt the best sale of the year. Brand new products for summer and fall at killed prices - heck yes! I don't know about you guys, but my Instagram feed is flooded with everyone's fun picks from the #NSale. I love seeing what everyone is finding! This sale can be super overwhelming so it helps me to check out what everyone else is loving to get some ideas.

Now I am SO not ready for fall, but I do admit this sale has me a little giddy over all the fun outfit possibilities. When shopping this sale, I like to be strategic. I think about what I already have in my closet, what I reached for last season that I wish I had, and go from there. This sale is perfect for grabbing those wardrobe staples at killer prices - like boots, coats and sweaters. Everything will go up in price come August 8th, and some items don't get restocked during the sale, so grab stuff while you can! Don't forget, you can always return things, too. With certain items I even order multiple sizes to ensure I get the best fit. 

I've gone through and picked the top 20 items that I just LOVE and will be adding to my shopping basket. Check them out below!

FINE PRINT: The sale is currently only open to Nordstrom cardholders from July 14th - 21st and will open to everyone else on July 22nd. If you don't have a card you can still apply now and take advantage of the early access!
