Outfit: Cable Turtleneck Sweater, Jersey Flounce Skirt & Structured Sweater Coat c/o Ann Taylor (Today get 50% OFF full price dresses & shoes w/ code: MERRY50)

Good Morning readers, I apologize for my lack of blog posts lately.  These past few days have been a whirlwind for me with photo shoot and filming of our “stylecation” in New Orleans, which I can’t wait to share with you.  Anyway, I’m finally home and back to working on holiday style and gift guides. Today, I’ve partnered up with Ann Taylor to show you some of my favorite pieces from their winter collection.  Ann Taylor has always been a go-to store for me when it comes to moderately priced sweaters, feminine accessories and classic skirts and dresses.  This season I’m all about pairing the chunky cable knit sweater with flippy skirts and ankle boots.  I also like to finish off the look with a cocoon style coat like this beautiful burgundy one shown above.  How gorgeous is that color! Ann Taylor also makes a super chic moto style jacket in that same stunning shade of winterberry. See it here–> Faux Leather Moto Style Jacket

As for the sweater I’m wearing, I’m highly considering purchasing it in the other three colors as well because it is the perfect style to wear with both fitted and flounce skirts as well as skinny jeans and leggings. Trust me, that doesn’t happen often! I usually have to buy four different styles/fits of sweaters to go with all of my different bottoms, but this one shown above works with everything! Not to mention that it is super warm and cozy!

Thank you to Ann Taylor for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

My Top Purchases From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Happy Friday everyone, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 is finally open to the public! This sale is known for offering some of Nordstrom’s top pieces like the BlankNYC suede moto jacket, Vince Camuto Booties and the AG Ankle Legging Jeans from last year! Oh and we can’t forget the cozy Leith cardigan and and softest Barefoot Dreams Wrap!  I love the Anniversary Sale because Nordstrom isn’t just marking down items that didn’t sell over the summer, they’re selling brand new closet staples and on-trend items at unbeatable prices.  It’s the ultimate time to go crazy on pre-fall denim, booties, jackets, Zella leggings, sweaters, shoes, you name it! With that being said, I’ve rounded up my top purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to help you fully maximize your shopping experience.

How To Shop The Sale:

SHOP ONLINE!

You don’t live near a Nordstrom? No problem! Neither do I! Fortunately, the best way to shop Anniversary Sale is online because it allows you easily navigate all of the sale items and categories. Plus why would you get dressed and leave the house when you can everything in your pajamas on the couch! LOL

Additionally, their online shipping and return policy is amazing because they offer both free shipping and returns. So you’ve got nothing to lose!

USE ME AS YOUR GUIDE!

I traveled to Houston before the sale went live to cardholders last week to scope out the sale early to round up all the best pieces and review the live from the dressing rooms in Nordstrom! You can check out all of my try-on sessions on my Instagram stories (@hauteofftherack) as well as my blog post updates and I am happy to answer any of your questions about sizing, quality as well as my overall opinion.

5 Categories I recommend investing in during the sale each year:

1) Zella leggings & Activewear

2) A few pairs of neutral colored booties

3) Designer denim

4) Cozy Fall Sweaters

5) Beauty Products

Wardrobe Staple: Tan Peep Toe Booties

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Today, I’m sharing why tan peep toe booties are a year round wardrobe staple especially if you live in the south because let’s be real here, we literally only had five days of real winter this season. With that being said, it’s hard to put together outfits when it’s 75 degrees outside in the dead of winter. It’s way too hot for over-the-knee boots, but you also don’t want to rock flip flops in February either. This is where peep toe booties come in and save the day! They’re the perfect mixture of every season and highly recommend this tan color because it’s a year round neutral color that goes with everything. You can wear these tan peep toe booties with jeans and a sweater or you can wear them with little dresses and shorts. Scroll through this post to see how I styled these booties with an easy transitional outfit from winter into spring.
