Accessorizing on a Budget

5.31.2017











My first rocksbox set arrived this weekend and I couldn't have been happier! It's the perfect way to try out jewelry from brands like Kate Spade and Kendra Scott. I had put each of these pieces into my wishlist and was thrilled to see I got them when I opened my rocksbox! The past few months I've been into accessorizing more so this lets me switch up my jewelry every month without spending too much money. That way I can put the money I save towards clothes haha :) One of the things I love is that if you truly fall in love with a piece you get the option to buy it at a discounted price. Now for the best part, all of my readers can get their first month free by using coupon code simplynancyblogxoxo at checkout!!

For summer I'm crushing on turquoise so these Kendra Scott earrings and necklace will be the perfect pop of color to my outfits. And the Kate Spade cuff is right up my alley too! It's gold and pink, what's not to love about that. As you saw from yesterday's blog post I wore all of my pieces together to add some color to my neutral look. That's the great thing about having a closet filled with basics in neutral colors haha!

What do you guys think of the pieces I got this month? And have you tried rocksbox yet?

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I hope you all had a good three day weekend! Yesterday we just took it easy and here's what I wore for some lunch at the park. I am loving this silk cami from Grana! I love it because it's so easy to wear by itself but also great for layering! I finished my look with some turquoise jewelry for a little pop of color! More about the jewelry (and a coupon code!) tomorrow so stay tuned! :)

My Nordstrom Sale Picks

5.26.2017

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale 2017
one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight

I've rounded up some of my favorites from the Nordstrom half-yearly sale! My favorite sale to shop is still their #NSALE that starts in July. But I found a few great sale items that I couldn't help but share with you all! The first thing I saw were all the gorgeous Cluse watches! I first saw the dalmatian print watch on one of my favorite bloggers here. I ended up ordering this one. I can't wait to wear it with all of my outfits. Since we're just getting into summer I had to include some sunnies too! There are so many cute sunglasses in the sale. I LOVE this pair from Prada but they're a little out of my budget... But the Westward Leaning pairs are right around $100, down from $200!! I honestly can't decide which pair I like better but I can't buy both... Also, the Topshop black ripped skinny jeans are my FAVORITE and they're included in the sale too. I definitely recommend trying them! 

Let me know your favorites pieces! Happy Friday! <3

I had forgotten about this sweatshirt but now I've rediscovered it and I'm wearing it all the time. Everyone needs a good comfy sweatshirt to wear for those lazy Sundays. This is it for me. I love that it's all grey but still has little details to make it more interesting. I wore it with my ripped Zara jeans and Madewell lace up sandals. And I had to throw on my favorite bracelet for some added bling! It's perfect for stacking with all your other jewels too! I've been thinking about getting those lace up sandals in the nude color, what do you guys think?

Ruffled Chambray Dress

I've had this chambray dress in my closet for weeks now and I finally pulled it out to wear it this past Sunday. I wore it with my favorite strappy heels but I think it would also look adorable with lace-up sandals. These from Madewell would go perfectly for a more casual look! Speaking of shoes, do you guys remember these from my sandals under $50 post? Well now that I have money and went to order them my size is unavailable haha!!I feel like this always happens to me! Can any of you relate? Worst feeling ever but it's okay I'll just keep stalking the Target website haha. 

My Friday plans are to do some quick cleaning & laundry then head to Charlotte for the day with my love. Do you guys have any plans for today? Let me know in the comments :)

Ten Summer Basics Under $50

5.17.2017


Today I'm rounding up 10 of my favorite summer basics and they are all under $50! Everything is from H&M because you guys know I love to shop there! I've also included some pieces from their best sellers which are 25% off today! 

One of the first things I like looking through when I get to the H&M website is their premium quality pieces. There you'll find items that are made from better quality materials like silk, cashmere, or leather but still at affordable prices! Take for example these sandals - they're a classic style, in neutral colors, and made of leather which means they'll last you through more than a couple seasons. Another great basic I found is this silk tank. At under $25 it's the perfect way to upgrade your basic cami. Silk is great because it has a luxurious feel to it, it's durable, and it lets your body breathe and stay cool.

I've also included a couple fun pieces to spice up a neutral outfit. These hair bands come in lots of fun prints and look so adorable on! I love how the girl above styled it wrapped around a messy updo. And you can never go wrong with a little leopard print! This scarf is under $15 and can be styled with so many outfits. I've included some inspo for you guys above. I love how the girl on the left draped it around her neck - so effortless and easy!

That's all for today! Happy Wednesday loves! <3

This is what I wore to a fun little fashion event a couple of weekends ago. I loved the look so much that I wore it again this weekend and manged to get a few photos to share with you all. This top is one of my favorites! It's off the shoulder and has blue & white stripes, what more could I ask for! I found an almost identical version at H&M that I've linked for you guys. The only difference is that it's a light blue stripe. I actually prefer it to the one I bought but they're both great! This top would look so good with white jeans too! And that's most likely what I'll wear this top with next haha!

P.S. I'm working to get my posting schedule back on track that way you guys know when to expect a new post. If you're new to my blog that means I post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Have a lovely Tuesday and see you all here on Wednesday! :)

Spring/Summer Sandals Under $50 & Target Shoe Try-On

5.09.2017

Spring Summer 2017 sandals under $50 valentino rockstud dupes
one | two | three | four | five | six


Happy Tuesday guys!! I went to Target this past weekend to see if they had any of the studded sandals in stock - they are dupes for the Valentino rockstuds!!  I found one of the pairs I was looking for and I tried them on for you guys (scroll down to see them)! I think I'll just order the other pair online because it's the one I really wanted. The designer version is here. While I was there I also tried on a couple other sandals that caught my eye and you can see those down below too! The pair I was most shocked to see was #2 because they're less than half the price of these from Steve Madden! If you've been following my latest outfit posts you know I love them! I'm going to be ordering them in black and see how they compare in comfort. If you want a more fun summer sandal #3 are so beautiful! They're dupes for these from Aquazzura! 

Sam & Libby Evita Grommet Heeled Pump Sandals target shoe try on

I love love love these. It's not a style I would usually go for but they were so comfortable and are the perfect nighttime statement sandal! They remind me of this pair from Valentino! I was SO close to buying them!

Target Lulu Block Heel Sandals Merona try on review

When I saw these my jaw dropped! I couldn't believe I paid double for the ones from Steve Madden. I still love my Steve Maddens - they're very comfortable and come in a wide variety of colors! But if you've been lusting over those and want them in light camel, light blue, or black then do your wallet a favor and buy these instead!

Target MOSSIMO Gertie gladiator sandals try on review valention rockstud dupes

These look nearly identical to the Valentino rockstud sandals guys!! I only saw them in this color in stores but they're available in black or white online! What do you guys think, should I buy them? 

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post as much as I loved creating it for you all! Have a wonderful Tuesday. Btw, how perfect is this post for #TuesdayShoesday!?

Instagram Roundup

5.03.2017

Hey loves! I thought I would share some of my phone snaps with you all. If you follow me on instagram (@simplynancyblog) then you have already seen these but I figured there are some of you that haven't seen them. Also this way I can give you guys more details and product links as well! Okay, let's begin!

ripped denim jeans zara lush grey tee purple tulips flatlay

One of my favorite types of pictures for insta are flatlays! I've been having so much styling them! The grey tee you see here is one of my favorites ever!! I got it during the nordstrom anniversary sale last year and it was one of the best things I bought! The jeans are Zara from last summer but this pair is similar. And lastly, the sandals are from Rue 21. 

coral knit sweater lace bralette denim shorts lace up sandals

Another one!  I love knits in fun, bright colors for summer! It's from H&M and available here. The shorts are also H&M from last summer but are back this year. The bralette is Rue 21 and the sandals are from Target.

fake peonies from michaels

How beautiful are these peonies!? They're the fake flowers from Michaels but they look pretty realistic to me. You won't need to worry about buying new flowers every week with these haha. 

steve madden carrson sandals taupe

You guys have already seen me wearing these beauties here & here. They're from Steve Madden and I absolutely love them! They come in so many fun colors too! If you've been eyeing them buy them now!

fresh strawberries and raybans

One of my favorite things about May is fresh strawberries. Lucky for me there's a place right up the road from where I live that sells them. The sandals are from Madewell, jeans are Zara, sunnies are Ray Ban, and top & cardi are Rue 21.

nordstrom bp twisted pave bracelet and cuff

I'm loving this light pink polish - pinky swear by wet n wild. It is one of my go-to colors for summer because it looks great with a tan. But the real gems in this photo are my new bracelets!! :) They are each under $15 and the quality is superb (for the price)! The twisted pave one is here and the light pink stone cuff is here. To see my full outfit from this day click here.

all saints leather jacket forever 21 open toe booties

And last but not least this is what I wear when the gloomy weather gets to me: all black. Who am I kidding though, all black is one of my favorite combos even when I'm in a good mood haha! The jacket is All Saints, tee is from Target, jeans are H&M, and shoes are Forever 21.

Let me know if you guys would be interested in a post about how I edit my instagram pictures!

Happy Wednesday! xoxo
