Moody Style: Off-The-Shoulder Stripes

If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, you know that I spent this past weekend in Savannah, GA for a IG/blogger meet-up.  I had such a great time making some new blogger friends and exploring the beautiful city. I plan to write a detailed post all about the meet-up soon, so stay tuned for more information.   

Well on Sunday morning, I met up with the group of bloggers for brunch at Soho South in downtown Savannah.  I decided to wear my new off-the-shoulder stripe dress and I’m glad that I did.  I couldn’t think of a more perfect outfit to wear in the sweltering heat we’ve been having lately.  I got this dress from SheIn.com earlier this month and it’s currently on sale for only $18.  It’s lightweight, loose and airy which is just the right touch for a hot summer day.  My favorite part of the dress are the stripes, the off the shoulder detailing and the fact that you get a detachable rope tie belt that really completes the look. This is the ultimate vacation dress and it will be part of the rotation for the rest of the summer. 

Are you guys getting tired of the off-the-shoulder look yet? I have to say I’m still a huge fan and I’m pretty sure that you haven’t seen the last of this look on me.  At least while the weather is still warm here in Florida.

In The Mood: My Nordstrom Anniversary Purchases

Happy Friday everyone! Today  is the day!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public.  I’m sure most of you know that this sale is the best time to stock up on some great fall essentials.  If you’ve had your eye on a particular item, there’s 3 reasons why you shouldn’t hesitate to add it to your shopping bag.  First, Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns, so if you’re on the fence about an item or it doesn’t fit correctly, just return it – pretty simple.  Second, your size and favorite colors are selling out fast.  Hopefully, Nordstrom will continue to restock their inventory, so don’t give up if your item is no longer available. I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed for a few items to pop back up that are still on my wishlist.   And finally, the sale ends on August 7th and the prices will go back up on August 8th.  The only thing worse than seeing an item that got away is seeing it get away at a higher price point.  Don’t let this happen to you ;)

I wanted to share with you a  few of the things I’ve bought so far and most of them are still in stock online.  I’m anxiously waiting for my items to arrive, so I’ll start taking pictures of everything when they get here.  Check out my shopping bag and let me know what are some of your favorite #NSale picks so far.  Are you planning on shopping the sale this year?  Have you bought anything yet?  Let me know in the comments below!

Moody Picks: #NSale Fall Favorites Under $50

Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will open up to the public tomorrow morning, I thought I would share several of my fall favorite items that are under $50! I've been so excited about this sale lately because let's face it, all of the items offered this year are just amazing. I can't even tell you how many times I've been to the store - I seriously just want everything.  The best part about this sale is that there are so many items available at different price points, so buying a few items here and there will make it easy to update your wardrobe without breaking your wallet.  Check out 22 of my favorites below and let me know what you think!

Moody Style: #NSale Fitting Room Reviews

Happy Sunday sweet friends!

So, I may have gone a little overboard with my shopping at this year’s Anniversary Sale, but I can't say I'm sorry about it.  I truly love everything I've bought so far.  Notice that I said so far…it’s a problem.  I’ve been to the store twice already and I’ve bought a few things online as well.  And I'm pretty sure I’ll be stopping by the store after church to try on a few more things I've had my eye on.  I keep finding new things that I “have” to have.  Have you guys bought anything yet?  What are some of the things that you’re loving from the sale right now?  

Anyways, here are my fitting room reviews for some of my favorite items from the sale.  I’m also going to include a few things that I bought, but didn’t have a chance to take a picture of them.  

Let me know what you think in the comments below! And check out my #NSale Must-Haves HERE.

Comfortable and super soft t-shirt.  I love the brand and I’m considering 
getting the Kale one too.  The tee runs true to size.  I’m wearing a small. 

 This relaxed cross front t-shirt definitely came home with me.  I fell in love with the fit and style 
of this top and you won’t believe how soft it is.  This top runs true to size and comes in several other colors.


I can’t get enough of stripes lately, so I naturally gravitated towards this top.  You’ll probably get sick of seeing it on me because you’ll be seeing it on everyone else.  This shirt is pretty versatile and it will look great with jeans or leggings and it’s on sale right now for $17.90.  This one also fits true to size and I’m wearing a small here. 

This swing tank is just the cutest.  I love the crisscross neckline and the lace details.  And it run true to size – I’m wearing a medium.

These jeans are my new favorite right now.  I wanted to get similar jeans that I’ve seen on other bloggers like this one, but I never pulled the trigger.  So once I saw these, I knew I had to get them. They are super comfy especially for the price and there is just the right amount of distressing.  These jeans fit perfectly in my normal size.  They are a little tight on my thighs, but that pretty standard for me and every jeans I own. 
Cute knit tank that has horizontal stripes on the front and back of the tank.  It also has a looser swingy fit that I think would be flattering for most sizes and ages.  I’m wearing a small in the rust color and it fits true to size.  


Love this tunic!  It fits true to size and would look great with some leggings and boots.  And although it’s a sweater 
tunic, it’s not a heavy weight, so it will be perfect for fall.

These jeans are on my wishlist right now because I’ve bought way too much so far.  These jeans are true to 
size, but I may have to try on a size down in case they stretch out.  One thing that I did love is that the jeans really hug my 
curves and it makes my booty look tight.

I’m definitely going to get a lot of use out of this dress.  This is another favorite of mine.   This body-conscious dress is a perfect foundation piece for so many layered looks.  This dress runs a little small, but it just depends on how tight you want your dress to look on you.  I’m wearing a medium here.

This dress is prefect for transitioning into fall, and you can also wear it now.  It comes in 3 colors and it runs true to size.  It will look great with some booties or sandals.  I'm wearing a small here.

BP. Frayed Denim Shift Dress
I really wanted this chambray dress to work out for me, but it didn’t.  I found that it ran true 
to size and I’m wearing a small here.  However, I don’t think it flattered me in any way. 

This classic shirtdress comes in 3 colors and it fits true to size.  I’m wearing the small here.  Although this dress fit me fine, I’m still on the fence about it.  Maybe it was the colorway?  I do however think that this dress will be great for the fall naturally because of the plaid pattern.  I also think it will look great with some over the knee boots or even worn as a long jacket with some jeans.
