Summer and wedges are like heels and cocktail parties. I don’t know about you but I like being tall with a little help from heels that is. Summer brings outdoor events to life, many times on grass or not optimal heel turf, so this is when wedges come in handy. I like my wedges to be casual but look stylish. If I’m going to a cocktail party or a getaway, I want to get that extra height but don’t even feel I’m wearing heels. In today’s post, I’m sharing a few of my favorite heels, all under $100, there’s one for every budget.

If you’re going to buy designer clothes, you might as well do it when it’s on sale and no one loves a sale more than me and no one loves an Intermix sale more than me. I love the variety of designers they have. I used ot go all the time to the store at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton, Fl when I was in college and going to the one in Georgetown while I lived in DC was always a treat and now going to the Madison Avenue or 5th Avenue location are always great visits. I recently wore the maxi dress tan version of this dress and it was a total hit, the pleats, the details, just a beautiful dress so it was only understandable that I needed to share the mini dress version as soon as I spotted it. Hope you like it!

As I’m planning a little summer getaway, I can’t help but browsing through Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. Today, I wanted to share with you what’s inside my Nordstrom anniversary sale shopping bag. I picked these items to show you how easy it can be to pack for an island getaway. The key is to pack items that you can wear multiple times such as an off the shoulder dress you can wear casually during the day with a tote bag and sandals and at night with a fun and statement clutch and nautical heeled wedges.
