Blush & Stripes







Dress: J.Crew {most comfortable dress ever!} | Denim Jacket: J.Crew {last year, this season HERE} |  Bag: Mark and Graham c/o | Blush Flats: Nordstrom {just bought the new fall color HERE!} | Cuff: David Yurman | Watch: Kate Spade | Earrings: Nordstrom {currently on sale for $64 in the #NSale!} | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Lips: Snob, Turkish Delight

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I went to Nordstrom to check out and see in person some of my favorite pieces from the Anniversary Sale! I found so many great fall pieces, I'll be sharing a few of my favorite purchases later this week! But now, on to today's comfy, casual and cool outfit...

If you follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy}, this dress might look a little familiar. I actually wore it as part of the Fourth of July festivities a few weekends ago, but paired it with red accessories instead. I truly can't get enough of it! I have been wearing it non-stop, and with it's simple black and white colors, it's so fun to mix and match with different colors and accessories. I have worn it from casual Friday at work to the weekend, it's just SO comfortable. 

I bought these blush lace-up flats back in the spring and I'm still wearing them! I actually bought them in THIS neutral suede color over the weekend while I was at the #NSale. As for sizing: I went with my normal size {9.5} in the blush and I will say that as I have worn them, they have started to stretch out. They didn't have the new suede version in a 9.5 at my Nordstrom, so I tried on the 9 and it surprisingly fit perfectly?! Not sure how to explain this sizing issue, but I figure if the 9 was fitting brand new, it will probably stretch a bit just like the 9.5 did! 

One more #NSale note! My go-to {I pretty much wear them} earrings that I am wearing here are also included in the sale! It's a great everyday earring and you can't beat the price!

Thanks so much for dropping by and have a great start to the week!
