10 Scarves Under $20 That Only Look Expensive

I’m addicted to scarves, but my wallet can only handle so many. Still, the heart wants what the heart wants. Cozy, buttery, ever stylish scarves. Does anyone else think a scarf can totally make an outfit? Even if I’ve just thrown on a t-shirt and jeans or a tunic and leggings, tying a scarf around my neck just makes it look like I tried. And thank goodness for that!

Lately, I’ve fallen down the Amazon rabbit hole; I can’t believe all of the goodness to be had. (Remember these favorite fall-perfect sweaters under $30?) But today we’re talking about the scarves; SO many cute scarves under $20 that only look expensive. I love wearing one and getting all of these questions about where I got my scarf only to be greeted with shocked looks when they find out it was around $15 on Amazon. That’s a fashion win, if you ask me.

As a mama, I’m already hopelessly devoted to Amazon; ahem, diapers in two-days flat. But Amazon also has this massive selection of chic scarves (and fashion) at crazy low prices; plus all of it ships in two days or less so I can be in that fall-ready cozy oversized scarf in no time.

So without further ado, and because I know you’re just as obsessed with scarves as I am, I’m sharing 10 of my current favorite fall-perfect scarves, all under $20 (and plenty under $10 and $15); but hurry, they’re sure to sell out fast!

The Fall Edit: Everything Topping My Wish List (and a Huge Sale!)

There’s nothing that I don’t like about fall; from the falling leaves to all of the great holidays, pumpkin patches and apple picking, and oh my goodness, the fashion. Every year, by mid-August, I’m already dreaming of my fall edit, and just what it is I’ll add to my closet for the season. And then September arrives and it’s not so crazy to start my fall shopping! Most notably, I love to dream of adding a new handbag for fall, denim (I’ve recently fallen in love with the brand DL1961; their denim feels like butter on and is so forgiving and flattering!), on-trend baubles (this year it’s all about layered heirloom jewelry, especially in gold), structured coats (I have my eye on this lightweight Suncoo Erik Trench Coat because the color is basically perfection, and I’ve always wanted a classic trench.), high-waisted pants and jeans, loafers and mules, booties, and over-the-knee boots, oversized scarves, and ALL of the sweaters. (For the record, this cashmere tie sweater is stunning.)

And lucky for all of us, today is the first day of a HUGE Shopbop sale event. (The early sale begins on Tuesday, September 26th at 7am EST!) These sales only happen 3 to 4 times a year; that’s because they’re insanely good and SITEWIDE, with a few exclusions.

Through Friday, September 29th at 11:59pm PST, you’ll get up to 25% off almost all full-price and sale items with code EOTS17, including all of the brand new Fall styles. (Those are major nearly sitewide markdowns on brands we all love like Kate Spade New York, Ulla JohnsonA.L.C.Tory BurchCitizens of Humanity (Favorite boyfriend/girlfriend jeans ever!), Loeffler RandallFree PeopleHATCHJenni Kayne, alice + olivia, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, that are almost NEVER on sale.) All you have to do is enter the promo code EOTS17 during checkout and BINGO: huge savings during this Shopbop Sale!

But here’s the catch, things sell out FAST at Shopbop Big Sale Events. So we’re giving you a leg up on the competition: the early sale will begin Tuesday, September 26th at 7am EST, even though the official Shopbop sale begins for the general public on Wednesday. As a Shopbop insider (that’s you all!), you’re getting the green light to start shopping the sale on the 26th with code EOTS17.

 

What about you? What’s in your Fall Edit and Fall wish list? Let me know in the comments below!

15 Trendy Flats To Fall in Love With This Season

The season of stylish trendy flats is here! Followed shortly after by ALL of the boots and booties (my favorite!) It’s cooling down outside and retailers are stocking up on chic flats, slides, and loafers you’re sure fall in love with. I’m loving all of the chic and flashy trendy flats popping up; from bow and pom details, to pointy toes, ankle straps, crushed velvet, brocade, pearls and more. And as evidenced first by the Nordstrom sale this summer, mules are all the rage again this fall. If you haven’t tried a pair of the laid-back slides, now is the time. Comfy and cute, with so many stylish options to choose from, my guess is: the mule trend is here to stay.

But truly, there’s a pair for every taste. Take a look at these 15 on-trend flats for fall, and let me know if you have any top contenders this season!

All The Cool Girls Are Wearing Them: Woven Leather Mules

Odds are, you’ve probably seen a pair of funky, laid-back woven leather mules pop up on the feed of one of your favorite instagrammers by now. All the cool girls are wearing them. Woven slides, with unmistakable hippie vibes, are nothing new; they’ve been popular for decades, and for good reason. Comfortable, and meant to wear with your steps over time, to give you that perfect, worn-in, just-right fit, woven leather mules are most comfort hounds’ best friend.

I think I’m particularly hung up on the casual shoe/slide trend, because these slides in particular remind me of sandals handmade in the Florida Keys, or house shoes I can remember my Bubby wearing so many years ago when her and my Poppy had a farm in the Dominican Republic.

While some woven leather mules have an almost deconstructed, extremely laid-back “vacation” vibe to them, like these Matisse Morocco Woven Mule, there are plenty of sleeker versions like these Seychelles slides.

Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access! (Plus, Tricks for Scoring the Best Deals)

The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access officially starts TODAY, July 13th, at 12am PST/3am EST. This is one of THE sales of the year, and easily a favorite of mine. It’s also the kind of sale where items sell out in MINUTES. (Thankfully, Nordstrom does try to re-stock throughout the sale, so you’ve got to be on the lookout for your favorites.) What makes this sale so special is that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is nothing but ALL NEW fall items that are marked down for a limited time. When the sale ends, the prices go back up to their original price. It’s a whole different kind of sale WIN knowing that all of the items you’re shopping are brand new, never been seen. Here’s what you need to know, plus tricks for scoring the best finds …

WHEN TO SHOP

If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access starts on Thursday, July 13th. This means you must have a Nordstrom credit or debit card to access the sale online or preview it in stores. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public a week later on July 21st and runs through August 6th.

THE PERKS OF BEING A NORDSTROM CARDHOLDER (PSST … SIGNING UP IS EASY!)

Hubby and I are really careful about what credit cards we’re willing to have. We actually only have two credit cards and one debit card total, and a few years ago, we decided to enroll for two more debit cards: a Nordstrom Card (in preparation for a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale when I was on the hunt for a new coat) and a Target Red Card. We’ve loved having both cards. The Nordstrom Card perks are pretty awesome, I’ve always loved being a Nordstrom customer because they treat you SO well (amazing return policy, free tailoring, etc.), and the benefit of early access to their biggest sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, is enough to make it totally worth it in my book.

OBSESSED with the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc. shares tricks for scoring the best deals. Click through for the details. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

I’m stocking up on my favorite seamless bra in every color because it’s just $11.90 during the sale! These Stuart Weitzman Elevated Over the Knee Boots, $499 ($799 after sale) are basically a total dream, the Steve Madden Thigh High Over the Knee boots are equally gorgeous and just $86.90, and if you’re on the market for riding boots, these Tory Burch boots are perfection. Tory Burch sandals and Tory Burch Ballet flats are also on sale! And I think this Barefoot Dreams Cozy Cardigan, $75.90 ($114 after sale) would be perfect for the hospital stay when we have baby girl number two!

 

WHAT TO BUY

I cannot stress enough how awesome it is to shop the brand new season, on-trend items. The best thing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and probably why it is SO popular, is that the products sold are all new arrivals for fall. We’re talking new clothes for women, men, kids, and baby, shoes, bags, homeware, and all new collections, that have never been seen or released until now! I take advantage of the sale every year, and I’ve bought some of my favorite pieces through the sale. (Coats, boots, and bags are always my picks, but more on that below.)

For years, my mom, sister, and I, start by browsing the catalog (you can check this year’s catalog out here), and we really try to narrow down what we really need aaaand want for the upcoming fall and winter seasons.

So let’s break it down …

  1. Coats and Leather Jackets. Over the years, I think I’ve bought two coats that I have worn endlessly from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Jackets are the perfect thing to get during the sale, because all of the styles are brand new – a.k.a., perfect for the upcoming cold seasons – and coat and leather jacket options include best-selling brands like Vince, MackageTreasure & Bond, Alice + OliviaBurberry, etc. that don’t normally go on sale … like, ever.
  2. Boots. Without fail, I always buy at least one pair of boots during the sale. This year the sale includes styles from Rag & BoneStuart Weitzman, Steve MaddenSam Edelman, Dolce VitaUGGSperryHunter, Rebecca Minkoff, and Vince Camuto (so many good styles from VC this year!) I always try to choose pairs that have a classic, streamlined look; i.e., a pair I can wear for years to come. Winter boots and cold-weather boots are also a great thing to snag at the sale, because they rarely go on sale and you’ll definitely need a pair once the snow starts falling.
  3. Handbags. This is the time to get your new fall/winter designer bag. Some of my favorite handbag brands on sale: Rebecca MinkoffMadewellkate spade new york, Frye, and Rebecca Minkoff.
  4. Sneakers + Activewear. I want ALL of the Nike styles this year. There are also some great options from Adidas. Plus so many cute leggings (buy anything Zella that goes on sale … the best, I tell you), sweatshirts and tanks.
  5. Sweaters. Oh, how I love a good sweater. Cashmere, wool, and luxe sweaters and cardigans … that’s the way to go during the sale. Keep an eye out for great finds from Eileen FisherTheoryFree PeopleVince, and Halogen.
  6. Designer denim. I’ve bought some of my most-worn pairs of jeans at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in years past. Brands like AGCurrent/ElliottFRAME and Rag & Bone are included. Prices will be up to 40% off so the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is definitely the best time to stock up on denim for fall.
  7. Accessories. Without fail, I always find myself getting a new bra or pair of sunglasses. There are amazing deals this year on things like watches (MICHELE), wallets, and jewelry. The sales on designer sunglasses during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are HUGE, and I’ve always loved Nordstrom’s selection of intimates, so the fact that my favorites (like Wacoal, Free People, Natori, Hanky Panky, SPANX, and Calvin Klein) are on sale, well, that’s just a win.
  8. Beauty. This year, there are some crazy good brand new beauty items on sale, like diptyque candles, Bobbi Brown palettes, Charlotte Tilbury Lip Duos, a T3 dryer, and MAC lip kits. (I have my eye on the Yves Saint Laurent Nude Lip Set.) Buy the fall season’s hottest scents and colors on sale; you’ll be thanking yourself later.
  9. Mens, Kids, and Home. The men’s shoes are insanely good this year – hubby actually has a pair of the Cole Haan Derby shoes in our cart as I write this. I love getting Scarlett a new coat and/or winter boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, these toddler and kids pompom sneakers, starting at $29, are darling, and you know I’ll be stocking up for the new baby girl too! Last year, I was blown away by what the home section of the sale had to offer: the coziest Barefoot Dreams blankets (we have one in every room of our house), the cutest decor, and an awesome selection of bedding and pillows. I’ll be doing separate roundups and mentions of my favorite products. So stay tuned here on the blog and on instagram (plus lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along!

GO IN WITH A GAME PLAN

Think about what you need and want. Plan with the upcoming colder weather in mind. Remember that Nordstrom does try to restock some items, but many of the best and most popular deals will sell out FAST. Nordstrom has an amazing return policy, with free shipping and returns, so don’t be shy about ordering something, trying it out, and returning it if it’s not a perfect fit.

Check back here and on the Glitter, Inc. instagramfacebook, and twitter often for the best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll keep on sharing updates on my favorite finds, things I think will sell out fast, and the very best deals. For instance, today, Thursday, I did a HUGE shoe visit/try-on on my Insta Stories. Check it out! 💗
