Frye 'Molly' Gore Leather Boot | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m drooling over two simple pairs of boots at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: these lovely flat Fryes (pictured) and these lovely stretch suede heeled boots from Cole Haan. The Cole Haan boots are apparently better for narrow calves, which is definitely not me, so I will continue to drool from afar — but the Frye boots look like they have real promise, with the entire back of the boot an elasticized gore. They’re currently on sale for $279 — after the sale ends on August 4 they’ll go back to their regular price, $418. Nice!

Diane von Furstenberg Dezi Boat Neck Jumpsuit | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

No, I don’t know where I’d wear this either, but I’m kind of obsessed with it after seeing Angie at YouLookFab round it up. I agree with her that jumpsuits present “loo” problems, but I really love the boat neckline here, the batwing sleeves, and the drapey legs. Let’s say I’d wear this to a fabulous dinner party with friends. Yes, that’s the ticket. It’s $425 at Shopbop (sizes 0-14). DVF Dezi Boat Neck Jumpsuit

The North Face 'Liana' Insulated Jacket (Nordstrom Exclusive) | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Weekend! I’ve historically been against puffer coats — but this one is barely puffy at all. Still, with a brand like North Face behind it, I’m sure it’s nice and toasty. I like the fitted style, also; it looks great for zipping around town on the weekend or for a casual day at work. It’s available in three colors, sizes XS-XL. It’s part of the Anniversary Sale at Nordstrom — it’s currently marked to $138, but after the sale it will be $185. The North Face ‘Liana’ Insulated Jacket (Nordstrom Exclusive)

Ivy & Blu Pleated Jersey DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Somewhere in the blur of the past month or so was my five-year wedding anniversary.  We’ve agreed to celebrate it later (TBD) given that my second son was born just days before our actual date, so I’m eyeing this lovely white dress for when we actually do celebrate.  I’m not big on white dresses, but I like that the dress seems to work on women curvy and straight, big and small, and this is the brand that makes the workwear dress that I (and readers) love.  The brand seems to have a number of pleated jersey dresses, so I’m curious to try this one out.  It’s on sale, too, which never hurts — was $148, now marked to $88 (not part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which just started — see my NAS workwear picks).  Ivy & Blu Pleated Jersey Dress

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

Birkenstock Arizona | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Fourth of July to all!

White Birkenstocks are having a moment, thanks to a lookalike shoe that was a smash hit on the Celine Spring 2013 runway and some serious fashion editor love. Personally, I’m excited that super-comfy orthopedic footwear is suddenly cool again. I’m definitely taking advantage by snagging this pair of white Birkenstocks to wear with all of my weekend basics this summer. The classic Birkenstock Arizona is available in a huge range of colors (including white!) for $89-$130 at Zappos. Birkenstock Arizona Sandal

Athleta Cross-Shore Maxi DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here. 

I am all jersey dresses all the time in the summer months. Athleta may be an athletic-wear company, but they have a great selection of t-shirt and tank dresses that are perfect for weekend wear. I love the stripes on this dress and the interesting way the high-low style is executed gives you the look of a maxi with the breeziness of a short dress. It’s $108 in sizes XXS-XL at Athleta.
