Reader’s Response: Well Dressed For Your Event

Well Dressed For Your Event

Let’s get you well dressed for your event! This week I asked readers for events that they would be attending soon. I also got in quite a few questions regarding what to wearing general, such as easy looks for the every day mom. Each time I do these posts (you can see previous ones here and here) I like to challenge myself somehow. This time, I decided to challenge myself by only using one main online retailer to shop the complete look. A few items were nearly sold out at the retailer, so I included links to others carrying the exact same item! Any guesses which store I used? Drum roll please…

Nordstrom! Ha! I know, you might be in the help please stop talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale already. So, I won’t! There might be items included in the #nsale but I didn’t specifically pick through them. I just want to show you how you can find what you need when pushed to do so! I personally like to shop at many different places, but this challenge was fun to do for you all! Don’t miss the bonus look at the very end. You will understand! As always, let me know if you use these tips or purchase any of these pieces. I love the hear from you all, and want to know how everything worked for you!

    Hi! I am a recent follower and I absolutely LOVE your style! I’ve told at least 5 friends about you already. I find your format and comments really helpful.
    I’ve been debating golden goose sneakers…. Are they really worth the splurge?? Or did I miss the trend and I’m fine with Veja’s…. Or even those PS sneakers that are in the Nordstrom sale for $199…. any thoughts are appreciated!
    I’m a stay at home suburban mom so I do dress casually more than I care to admit even to myself.

      It depends on who you ask, but I love a golden goose sneaker to “dress” up an outfit…I love any of them with sparkles! haha. I think it’s great to have a couple different brands to rotate through. Personally, I love how how they feel on my wider feet. Veja’s are fab too, and would be a great wardrobe staple.
