I have such a soft spot for button-ups, and the second I felt this one as I was perusing through the mall in Dallas … I knew it was a good one. It looks a little boxy on the hanger but doesn’t fit that way at all. My roommate and I keep our apartment pretty chilly, so I tend to not let the summer heat keep me from buying these types of garments. This is the perfect outfit for anyone who works from home, and wants to run a couple errands or out to grab a casual dinner with a friend afterward.
Tomorrow is the big day! The #NSale is open to all cardholders, and when you see that you won’t be able to shop all the amazing things included in the sale [most of which will get you well ahead of the how-to-dress-for-Fall game, like this faux fur vest, this stripe cape, these plaid shirts, faux fur leopard coatthese boots,  these booties in the sandstone color and the most perfect fringe hobo bag that I ever did see!] you’ll be really sad. I promise. That was me last year.  I’m also personally excited to get my favorite candles and my favorite perfume set at a discounted price, too.

There are items that are released to card holders during early access that are limited in quantity, so once they’re gone, they’re gone, like this 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli. Sign up to be a cardholder here. Again, I know credit cards aren’t necessarily a good thing for everyone to have [everyone has their own track record], which is why I personally encourage y’all to get the debit card because it links directly to your personal debit account.

I’m not exactly sure what time the sale will go live. Last year, they shut down the site around 11pm EST to get the site ready for the sale, and I think opened it back up around 2am / 3am. I will have my post up as soon as I have access and can put together the best finds and deals for you … most likely around 5am or so! So, if you don’t want to go digging … head here first! I’ll have done all that work for ya 😉

Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for stopping by … be sure to come back tomorrow! I have a surprise for y’all! xo.
