I am ALL ABOUT finding multiple ways to wear my clothes. In fact, the more versatile an item of clothing is, the more it is free. In my mind. #sherrimath is a real thing. Or at least I'm trying to make it into one, so that I can convince John that I am actually frugal.
It's not working.
Anyway, while I was basically squatting at my local Nordstrom the last 3 weeks, I was introduced to this skirt. And before I show you why it is SO GOOD, let me just say this: I was pretty certain this skirt and I wouldn't be friends. In fact, I would have probably never tried it. But then. THEN I did. And now we are married and I have to wear it EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
There are SOME PEOPLE who will actually be GLAD when the Anniversary Sale ends tomorrow. These are obviously crazy people, who wouldn't know a good deal if it smacked them in the face. Or was hypothetically delivered to their doorstep via the kind folks at UPS. You know who you are. JOHN.
Just kidding. Mostly. But I'll bet some of you #girlmoms will relate so hard to this post. When our daughters were babies and toddlers, it was REALLY FUN to dress them, right? Whether you were into smocking or skinny jeans, cold shoulder shirts or big bows, it's like playing dress up with a cute doll. One who cries, poops, and throws tantrums. yes. But a doll who will at least wear what the heck you spend your cash money on, because DOESN'T SHE KNOW PEOPLE PAY YOU TO DO THIS??. A-HEM.
Now, I'm not saying I have favorites among my precious anniversary sale purchases. Except that I do. I totally do. And can I tell y'all a little secret? Almost none of those favorites ever come from Round One. Year after year, it's ACTUALLY my ROUND 2 (or 3...or 4....) picks that end up being my go-to staples. (You'll know which ones are my faves by the way you see them many days in a row, without regard for societal norms and things like cleanliness.)
Let's be honest guys, there are WAY MORE than 5 things from the Anniversary Sale that I LOVE AND ADORE AND WANT TO COME LIVE WITH ME FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.
(Because I am obviously excited about the #nsale at what is a completely normal and emotionally stable level.)
Despite being the worst at narrowing down a list, for you guys, I can do it. I came up with FIVE. Five things that are probably selling out as I type these words. I'm looking at you Rag & Bone circle bag that was in my cart on it's merry little way to checkout, and THEN GOT STOLEN FROM ME by Super Speedy Susan, who was more organized, quicker with her card, and who is also fake but it helps me to blame someone, okay? #actlikeitsnormal
As we speak, the Sale That Shall Not Be Named is about to commence. You may know it by it's other name: The Sale that Causes John to Twitch Every Time A Package Arrives. Clearly, I'm referring to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. And since it's the most wonderful/annoying time of the year, I wanted to share a few of my tips and tricks to shop the sale LIKE THE BOSS THAT YOU ARE.
Y’all @noondaycollection is one of my favorite jewelry and accessory lines out there. Not only are they a fair trade company that provides jobs to artisans in vulnerable communities, Noonday also partners with adoptive families to help raise money to offset the high costs associated with adoption. (And y’all know how I feel about #adoption!) So tonight at 8pm, I’ll be going live on IG and FB to host a virtual #noondaycollection trunk show, benefiting a sweet family that’s about to adopt their third child! Come watch me be awkward, shop the fun-ness, AND do some good. (Because “do good dollars” don’t count as spending money. They count as GIVING money. Which is the excuse I’m gonna use when I accidentally purchase the entire fall line. Whoops.) P.S. word on the street is that there could be some giveaways, that may or may not include a $100 Nordstrom gift card (among other fun things). P.S. you can go ahead and start shopping, just go to the link in my bio! | shop this look in the LTK app or via the shop my insta page on RATMJ.com | http://liketk.it/2wZec #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸: @jnellyphotography
When your camouflage game is on point. 💁🏼♀️ Y’all. Let me drop a little wisdom here : wear your wrap dresses as kimonos. You’re welcome. 😂 (But seriously though, do it. You’ll love it.) Mine is sold out, but I’m linking to another option that I love so much. 🙌🏻 On a related note, go ahead and wear your fall and winter booties NOW by pairing them with shorts. (Apparently Wednesday night Sherri is bossy. Jk, I’m bossy all the time.) And while I’m being bossy, don’t forget that I’ll be LIVE on IG and FB tomorrow night (Thursday) at 8pm, and you will be there. Right?!?!? I’ll be co-hosting a virtual @noondaycollection trunk show to benefit a local adoptive family, which MEANS that not only can you shop your faces off, you’ll also be DOING GOOD. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy watching me be highly awkward because Sherri and live anything isn’t the best idea. 😂 And really who doesn’t wanna see that? | ps you can shop this look + all the fabulous #noondaycollection accessories via the link in my bio. (you can hear more on the Noonday highlight reel in my stories) | http://liketk.it/2wYCt @liketoknow.it #liketkit | 📸 : @jnellyphotography | #LTKstyletip #LTKunder100 #LTKshoecrush
Fun dinner @eatflowerchild + phenomenal performance by @taylorswift + time with my favorite girl on the planet = 🎶 And I had the best day with you today 🎶👯♀️❤️ P.S. AG has no idea how thankful she should be that Taylor DIDN’T play The Best Day last night. Or she would’ve been embarrassed by more than just my dancing. And if ya wanna see that, then SWIPE. 😂 #flowerchildatl #reptouratlanta #atlblogger
I’m having the best time here at #TBScon, y’all. Making some fun new friends and catching up with old ones. Not to mention, I’ve already learned so much. Except how to be less awkward. #casualhairtouchFTW P.S. this jumpsuit is AMAZING. So cute, so comfy, and price is on point. It’s basically fancy pajama pants. Ya need it in your life. Promise. | shop it via the link in my bio or by following me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app | http://liketk.it/2wUTg #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : my girl @jennysuemakeup
Remembering AG’s summer reading and math project 6 days before school starts didn’t NOT give me extreme #momguilt. 🙈 On a related note, does anyone else feel like they’re barely holding it together in all the back to school insanity? 🙋♀️ Although I may be tragic at remembering summer “homework” (why is this even a thing btw?), I ROCK at making multiple outfits with pieces I really love. LIKE THIS SKIRT. I styled it in two super different ways #ontheblog, so clickety click those little fingers on over. Link’s in my bio 🙌🏻 | http://liketk.it/2wTw5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : @jnellyphotography
Pretty sure a sheer lace dress makes ANY outfit about 72% cooler. And about a thousand percent more extra. #science #notreally #fashionscience #whynot 🤷🏼♀️😂 Seriously though, I’m picturing this layered over white jeans, gray jeans, black jeans... Basically ALL THE JEANS. And then we can all be extra EXTRA together. 🙌🏻 | head over to the “SHOP” page on RATMJ.com to get outfit details on ALL my IG posts. 👊🏻 | http://liketk.it/2wSKW #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : @jnellyphotography #LTKsalealert #LTKunder50 #LTKstyletip #LTKunder100
Y’all, there are a few hours left to shop @Nordstrom’s #anniversarysale. Do with it what you will. Just as long as what you do is go buy EVERY SINGLE PIECE of this outfit. 😂 #salesmakemebossy | P.S. The skirt isn’t part of the sale, but it IS under $80. So at least there’s that. Plus I’m styling it two very different ways #ontheblog tomorrow. And therefore it is free. Ish. | shop the look via the handy dandy LIKEtoKNOW.it app OR via the “shop my insta” page on ratmj.com. 👊🏻 | http://liketk.it/2wQWz #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : @jnellyphotography | #LTKsalealert #LTKshoecrush #LTKstyletip #LTKunder100
*gets judged by the dog for the length of her skirt. 😂 seriously y’all, when I found this #blanknyc suede “dress,” I knew it would be perfect over basically EVERY SHIRT I OWN. And probably a pair of skinny jeans next time, LET’S BE FOR REAL. I’m kinda thinking it’d be JUST the thing to pair with some white skinnies for #fall. And ya know us #bloggers LOVE white skinnies for fall. 🙄😂 | P.S. Every single thing I’m wearing is part of the #anniversarysale, so get yourself to @Nordstrom, before the sale ends on Sunday. No pressure, but just imagine Jack Bauer and a clock ticking down, and then tell yourself that you’re doing it for Jack. (That won’t work on your husband because I already tried it.) | getcha those outfit details via the link in my profile, and go to “shop my insta.” | http://liketk.it/2wPHE #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : @jnellyphotography
Y'all, this Julep Double Cleanse and Boost Skincare set is legit amazing. The Korean method of double cleansing might SOUND like a lot of work, but it actually feels luxurious tbh. It removes all the surface impurities, and then cleans deep down to give you the absolute best results. I've been especially loving the Hydrating Cleasing Oil, and my skin has never been softer. Best part is, with your super clean face, you've now paved the way for all the serums, moisturizers, and any other products to do their thang. Everyone wins. Especially your face. You can find the entire set for under $50 @UltaBeauty. | @JulepBeauty #LoveYourBareFace #BravePretty
That awkward moment when you make your daughter twin with you. 😂👯♀️ she’s not gonna let me get away with it much longer. But maybe by then I’ll just borrow her clothes instead. 😂 #imnotaregularmomimacoolmom | Seriously though, @Nordstrom has the cutest girl clothes ever, and the #anniversarysale prices are AH-MAZING. (P.S. my #topshop jumpsuit is not to be missed either.) | Both of our looks are linked, so follow me in the LIKETOKNOW.IT app for details, or head over to the link in my bio 🙌🏻 | http://liketk.it/2wO0Q #liketkit @liketoknow.it | #LTKfamily #LTKsalealert #LTKkids #LTKshoecrush #LTKstyletip #LTKunder50 #LTKunder100
