What I Wore | Confession

WhatIWore: Confession: You CAN wear your regular clothes when you’re pregnant. Gone are the days of mumus and tent like dresses. Depending on how you show, a size up might hold you over into your 4th or 5th month (like me right now!) I recently invested in this DvF silk blouse (and when I say invest, I mean it was under $50!!) that will work now AND have staying power after baby. 

When: March 22, 2014

Aviator Sunglasses: Ted Baker
Silk Blouse: DvF (similar style in more colors)
Moto Jacket: MICHAEL Michael Kors (similar)
Jeans: Rag + Bone
Shoes: BCBG via DSW (similar)
Bag: Coach (similar)

Where: Out to Lunch

Why: First things first - I mentioned this a couple weeks ago on Facebook, but I’m excited to announce that I’ll be working as an ambassador with Nordstrom Rack all this year! That means I’ll be the first to share the news on new store openings, and will give you an early heads up on developments with NordstromRack.com! 

To kick things off, I attended a summit in San Francisco to learn more about the brand and campaign and to visit the SF Union Square store opening… which is where I spent a good part of my spring budget. 

I bee lined straight to this MICHAEL Michael Kors white leather jacket. A couple of years ago I picked up a black moto from the same label and I have gotten so much wear out of it. So naturally, a white (or a little off white to be specific) seems like it’ll get lots of rotation in my closet for spring. I wear it almost every day and have to hold back from letting it show up in too many outfit posts in a row.  All in all, I got about 55% off the regular price and felt like it was an awesome deal.

Next I thought I’d treat myself to some new sunnies. I’ve never found a pair of aviators that I liked, but this Ted Baker version seems to frame my face nicely.

Finally, I found my way into the designer department (warning! caution!) and browsed through the Kate Spade New York, Alice + Olivia and Alexander Wang racks before finding my way to the DvF section. I’ve invested in a couple of Diane von Furstenberg dresses before and the quality and staying power always made it worth the money. So when I found this silk top for $50, it was a no brainer.

Have you been to a Nordstrom Rack before? I’d love to see what kind of deals you find at your local store or hear your shopping/wardrobe confessions (see mine above). Are you more likely to track down designer deals or are you the type to create a runway look at a fraction of the cost? Share what kind of #shopgenius you are (I’d like to think I’m a little of both!) by using the hashtag and following @nordstromrack on instagram. You might be featured!!
