Basic Cable

Click to Shop!

Hi friends, happy Monday! With the weather cooling down here in Madison, it’s quite literally sweater weather, and who doesn’t love a good cable-knit? When I think of the classic fisherman’s sweater, my mind first jumps to being around five or six at my grandparents house. Whenever I was chilly, I would borrow one of several sweaters my “Ahma” had knitted for either my mom or my aunt when they were little. They were the perfect, cozy, cabled cardigans with pretty brass buttons. Though those are long gone, they are definitely the standard I look to when on the hunt for a new sweater. I personally believe everyone should own a great cable-knit, and this season, there’s so much to choose from. It’s anything but basic cable with punchy colors, or fringe, or colorblocking, cable-knit is cool y’all. You can even incorporate it into your look in the form of leggings or even a poncho, whatever floats your boat. If you live in the Great White North, like me, you’ll definitely be requiring a chunky knit to keep you warm all fall/winter, and cable-knit is the way to go. Check out some of my picks in the list below!

Sunday Sales?

 So it may not be the usual Saturday Sales, but work with me here. Not too late to take advantage of some great weekend deals. Bloomingdales is having the “Extra Haute June Sale” (lol), which takes up to 25% off tons of designer faves and wardrobe basics. That’s where I found this citrus-hued Longchamp. We all have these handy nylon totes dating back to high school, but if you’re in the market for a new gym/beach/everyday bag, this one is such a fun pick. If you prefer the classic Le Pliage, don’t fret, several colors are on sale too. Jack Rogers are another wardrobe staple for me, they’re some of the best sandals I own. They’re a great basic to throw on with anything, and once worn in, actually pretty comfortable. Plus, this sunny pair is less than $80, so treat yoself. Now, I can’t really call culottes a wardrobe staple. I rarely like this look, but Alice & Olivia does it right. The look is less stubby pants and more chic midi skirt, so I’m into it. This pair is still nearly $300 everywhere else, but Nordstrom has them for $175…so if you’re in the market, there ya go. Be sure to check out all my other weekend sale picks, as always, click to shop. I hope y’all are having a relaxing Sunday!

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine in Chicago, and I’ll be recapping that in tomorrow’s post. For now, unwind before bed with some retail therapy. Several of these things were inspired by what I couldn’t afford to buy while shopping around the past few days. Life is expensive y’all, and so is Italian leather. I’m wrapping up my evening with some tea, as it takes some time to recover from such a great weekend, so I’ll meet y’all back here tomorrow!

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale!

It’s not Saturday, but there’s always a sale, and ya’ll know I’m not missing an opportunity to shop. Now through the 31st is the time to buy at Nordstrom! Save up to 40% on thousands of items, like those pictured above and those found in the widget below. Once again, I’m featuring some picks for the boys. Now would be the perfect time to put something away for Father’s Day, so be sure to browse through my faves! Sales like this make me wish for a Madison Nordstrom even more, but with free shipping and amazing customer service, online shopping is just as good. Consider this my permission to treat yourself, because so many of these items rarely get marked down. I hope everyone has a wonderful day, I so appreciate you stopping by!
