Tie-Sleeve Sweatshirt & Link Up!

July 27, 2017

So, I’ll be showing off my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds for awhile, Dolls!  I think this tie-sleeve Pleione is the must-have sweatshirt for fall 2017! (Gee, I don’t think I’ll ever said “must have sweatshirt” before!).

Update your casual look at the Nordstrom Sale


From the #NSale

So, let’s face it, Ladies … our go to casual uniform of a sweatshirt and jeans could use a little update, right? This cozy sweatshirt is the perfect solution, incorporating the ties/knots trend with the cold shoulder trend.  It comes in a variety of pretty shades, but you know I have a special place in my heart for red, so I had to get this fun Red Chili shade!

I’m also really loving the architectural mixed metal jewelry of Argento Vivo, especially these stick ball earrings. (And if you’ve been following along, you already know they double as weapons and chopsticks!)

Both these items can be had at a sale price right now for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but don’t delay. Prices go up August 7th!

The Photographer

So, guess who took these photos for me? No, not Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista, but her adorable 11 year old daughter, Kylee!  What a sweetheart .. and good photographer!



My chic pick of the week is Christine of Bon Chic Style!

Always a class act, I think she outdid herself with this fabulous ensemble!

By the time this post goes live, I’ll be checking out the Pala Resort/Casino by San Diego!  Keep an eye out for Instagram stories!

    You are such a cutie pie and those sleeves are simply awesome! Fun outfit and I LOVE those earrings!

  • Reply Mica July 27, 2017 at 2:26 pm

    That is such a fun top! I love the tie detail and you could easily layer a logn sleeve top under it when it gets cooler so you can keep showing off the ties! 🙂 I really like your bag too – I’m looking forward to getting a Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap for my bags, the embroidered ones are so pretty! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great week 🙂

    Can we just go shopping together?? Seriously. Your style truly is fun. My specialty is making the most of what I already have. Shopping overwhelms me, unless I have a “staple” list. I know. How can I be a blogger?? lol. Great top, jeans and shoes. Nicely done Dawn.

    • Reply Dawn Lucy July 30, 2017 at 7:26 am

      Hee, thanks! Shopping? Yeah, let’s go!! 😀
