Nordstrom Sale Details

OMG, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here. Words cannot express my excitement over this sale. I know how ridiculous this sounds BUT something about having early access (Nordstrom card holder – only a level 1 but whatever) and items selling out before being released to the public, just makes it exciting. Oh and another reason why I love this sale is all items are new arrivals! Okay, enough about my obsession.. here are some of my favorites:

_12640327

This Topshop camo jacket is adorable and fun. It has some cute ruching on the side that makes it look like a bomber jacket. It is showing unavailable but I really hope it comes back in stock!

_12603591.jpg

This dress. Another Topshop item and it is perfection. It’s dressy but could be dressed down. So great for a night out or lunch with friends..

_12887036

Black, torn denim have been on my wish list for over a year. These Hudson’s are AMAZING.

_12642883

This Trouve faux leather skirt makes me feel like I live in the city.. I have this fantasy of living in NYC and being a successful fashion blogger (with a nanny, kids in private school, a super fancy apartment and a house in the Hamptons, a girl can dream.) This Trouve skirt is probably the closest I am going to get to living in NYC. It also reminded me of “Odd Mom Out” and that made me happy too.

_12335784

These Ivanka Trump heels are fun and unexpected. I love that the heel is suede/velvet/whatever too. These are outside the box for me but I am going for it! They are ADORABLE with the Topshop dress.

_12689941

This ASTR mesh top (I just cringed saying the word mesh in my head) is so cute! Definitely wear a camisole under, please. ย It would look great with shorts or jeans. It can really be worn dressed up with a fun necklace and heels ๐Ÿ™‚

_12893964

Obsessed. These AG’s nailed it.

_12422150

These Dolce Vita over the knee boots are super cool. I got a pair of different over the knee boots about a year ago but they were so baggy I couldn’t stand it. These seem like they will be perfect.. we will see!

Good luck shopping and I hope you enjoyed my picks ๐Ÿ™‚

My Latest Business Adventure

Hello! So, you all know how much I LOVE clothes and accessories really are the finishing touch to ANY look – casual or fancy. I hear lots of women say, “but I wouldn’t know what to wear that with.” Here’s the thing, the only way to get comfortable with wearing accessories is by just going for it and trying new things out. Amazing outfits don’t always come out of the first look you put on, it takes throwing on pieces in your closet that might go together and finding great looks out of what you weren’t sure of. Well, sometimes the amazing outfits will come from the first look you put together but not always ๐Ÿ˜‰ I recently started as a Stylist for Stella & Dot. Have you heard of them? If you haven’t, you need to stop what you’re doing and follow this link now! http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis I want to share some of my favorite pieces and different ways I have styled them.

First, the Rebel Pendant (comes in silver, gold and rose gold) is an easy piece to throw on with anything. Often, I will put on the Rebel over jean shorts and a white T-shirt. It just adds a cute element to what was a plain outfit. So easy for the moms out there looking for something quick.

Next, the Chiara. OMG, at first I was not crazy about this necklace, but after layering it over a denim shirt – forget about it. I am obsessed with this piece. It is so great for girls night, date night, work or just wearing it because it’s super cute.

The Freya Fringe, is probably my ultimate favorite piece. It can be worn several different ways but my favorite are short and long. This piece is so versatile. I took this to New York and basically wore it the entire time even though I brought several pieces with me. This may seem a little intimidating to some but TRUST me, this will really add some sparkle to your wardrobe and you won’t believe all the compliments you will receive.

There’s so many more amazing pieces from Stella & Dot! Check out their website and let me know what you think ๐Ÿ˜‰ http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis

Spring

ย  Spring is here and I have collected some of my favorite trends to share. I am still crazy for torn denim and shorts are no exception. The other day, Ryan (my husband) was like, “what is wrong with your shorts? They have a huge hole, why are you wearing them. Please tell me you didn’t buy them like that!?” Sorry, not sorry because I definitely bought them with the holes. I found these Topshop denim shorts on clearance at Nordstrom rack for $18! It doesn’t get much better than that for Topshop. They came with some small holes and have become holier (is that a word?) over time. They are a high rise and could be mistaken for “mom butt” but I actually LOVE them and usually wear a casual t-shirt, tucked in the front of course.

The block heel. OMG I am crazy for a block heel. As a girl who rarely wears heels and struggles to walk in them when I do, the chunky heel makes wearing heels a million times easier. Here’s a roundup of the ones I love:

I have these in black and beige. Such a great shoe to dress up! Vince Camutoย on sale!

The cropped denim:

_12040628

I LOVE me some white denim! They are just so perfect for spring and summer. The torn look is fun and makes them a little more casual. Any age can wear a little tare but a shredded look is probably not the best choice for the seniors…. ๐Ÿ™‚

That is all for today. I will have much more to share soon. I hope you enjoyed reading!

Boot Update

It has been a while since my last post. Sorry! I got the over the knee boots and decided to return them, they were beautiful but I think my legs are a little skinny for them (first world problems). They were too baggy by the end of the evening and I just couldn’t look past it. I literally lost sleep over the decision to keep or return the Seychelles boots. Yes, I am being serious ๐Ÿ™„. ย I still have the dream of owning a pair of boots like these and I am on the search for the perfect fit.

Here is the look I put together to debut the boots. They are definitely a going out boot and not an everyday boot, in my opinion.

My husband has really stepped up his fashion game ๐Ÿ™‚ .

This look was so fun to pick out! The black dress and drapey jacket are from the Juniors department in Nordstrom. The necklace is Stella and Dot. I have become obsessed with their jewelry. The quality is amazing and every piece is so special ๐Ÿ™‚ .

They are too baggy right? Or, am I just crazy?!

I will keep you updated on my boot hunt! With the change of season coming, I may wait until the next winter, unless these go on sale then I may consider them a half size down to see if that helps with the bagginess. I am a true 8.5 but got these in a 9 because that is all that was available. Unless I find something that fits better ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

On a different note, today is the one year anniversary of my blog! YAY! I can’t believe it has been a year. I created this blog when I was feeling blah and a little sad. I wanted to create something for me, outside of being a mommy, that I enjoyed and could be an outlet for my fashion obsession. OMGANDMORE has been such an amazing way for me to express myself and share my love for fashion ๐Ÿ™‚ . Thank you for reading!

I HAD A DREAM…. ABOUT OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

Yes, I realize it’s a little late in the season to bring up the over the knee boot. I just can’t get these out of my mind. People are posting pics on Instagram everywhere wearing these. To me, I always thought this style boot was a little on the skanky side (for lack of a better word. I just tried to put a Kimoji pic in and it won’t let me… Ugh!) but lately I am really into it. Although, there is a fine line between skank and adorable. The heel length and the outfit choice are the deciding factors in this matter. A flat to mid high heel (2-3″) is much more acceptable than a stiletto. Also, if you decide to wear these with a mini skirt please be prepared to be whistled at.

ย 

These Steve Madden boots seem to be popular with the heel and tie in the back but i honestly hate them.

Steve Madden

 

These are just okay. They are a good option for a more casual look. They would be cute with skinny jeans and a long shirt or a sweater and sparkly necklace for a dressier option.

 

Vince Camuto

These are a thigh high boot and I am obsessed! I just ordered them and I hope they are as amazing in person as online.ย 

 

The Seychelles (a brand I have never tried, on the pricey side) are just perfection. The color is amazing, they can go with dark or lighter colors and can easily be dressed up or down by the change of a shirt.I love the heel height (2 1/4). Although, perfect looking online, these will definitely need to be tried on. With the thigh high boot I am hoping to not look like a hooker. I think worn with the right outfit, skinny pants/jeans, a skirt or dress with tights will look adorable.

These Calvin Klein knee high boots are a great option too and they are at a nicer price point then the Seychelles.

I really like the heel height and the toe shape on the Calvin Klein boots. I feel like other people really like the laced up ones but I am not into them.

I know this is a random one but I hope you enjoyed the post ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Thanks for reading,

Denim Blues

I really only have ONE pair of blue denim that I like. They are high rise, skinny and I got them on sale ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . Why is it so difficult finding the perfect pair/fit/color/rise of jeans? It was like discovering pizza for the first time when I found these. They are my first real “high rise” denim and yes, I wear them almost everyday…. That’s why I am now looking for another pair so I don’t ruin these in a matter of months. Here are the ones I love:

image
AG High Rise magic ๐Ÿ™‚

The next pair I get need to be high rise for sure and maybe a lighter denim with some holes? My husband would say, “holes? Really? That’s ridiculous!” But what does he know? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have been considering adventuring to GAP for some nicely priced denim. When I have tried GAP in the past, the denim have stretched too much or they just weren’t comfortable but I am optimistic that I can find a great fitting pair! (I am really trying to not be a jean snob right now) Here is a pair I was checking out online, they are mid-rise and would definitely need to be tried on. I love that they are a totally different look with the loose fit and worn denim. GAP always has a sale online which makes shopping feel a little more guilt free ๐Ÿ˜‰

image
These are mid rise, not sure if that is high enough for me. These are GAP.

I am OBSESSED with the next pair of jeans! They just look amazing, too bad they are sold out of all sizes but one. Of course they are on sale too. Maybe they will be in your size?

_11228395
These AG jeans are mid rise as well. The AGs are on the pricey side but the quality is amazing and so comfy.

Lastly, when in doubt just get the jeans you love in another color. RIGHT?

_11764993
These AG jeans are just a tad different then the first ones posted. If you like these, add them to your wish list and wait for them to go on sale.

NOT MUCH OF A SALE I’D SAY

If you don’t know already, I am Nordstrom obsessed. My friends and family think I buy everything expensive and full-priced. Yes, I am a mall rat and yes, I have a shopping problem. I mean, at least I admit it right? The truth is, I put items I want in my ‘wish list’ and wait until they go on sale before I buy them, unless it is something amazing and I need it right away! In the case of a must-have-emergency, I will still place my new item in my ‘wish list’ on Nordstrom.com and if it goes on sale within a couple weeks they will price adjust. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on so of course I checked all the items on my list first thing when the sale started a few days ago. Sadly, only a few of my items were on sale. I browsed the sale online and I am a little disappointed. I mean, is a Marc by Marc Jacobs or Rebecca Minkoff Hobo bag marked half-off too much to ask for? Not sure what I was hoping for but there just wasn’t anything AMAZING. (first world problems) Of course I still bought a few things. ๐Ÿ™‚

_11126383
I first saw this shirt a month or so ago and did not like it. Love is not always at first sight. After seeing it a few times and finally trying it on, I was hooked. I wore it to work today under a v-neck sweater and it was adorable.
_10992122
This sweater was love at first sight. I am crazy for stripes and anything oversized.
_11126819
I love anything menswear inspired and suitable for a bowtie.

Yes, I am also obsessed with the Treasure and Bond brand.

JACKET-OBSESSED

IMG_6388

If you follow me on Instagram you have probably thought to yourself, “is she really wearing that adorable leather jacket again?” (You may have thought that without the adorable mixed in ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I had planned on getting the leather Treasure and Bond jacket after Christmas with gift cards because it was a little pricey. Two weeks ago, the jacket was showing unavailable online. I was in a panic! I called the online customer service immediately, yes I was at work and whispering while making my really important phone call. They were able to add it to my shopping bag so I had no choice but to order it. (It was clearly a life or death making decision) Luckily, I have a Nordstrom card in my name so my husband can’t see my purchases. Yes, I really just admitted to that and no I’m not sorry.

IMG_6408

Okay, enough about the story behind the jacket. A few years ago I would have never imagined myself in a black leather moto jacket. What does a person wear with it? Would I look like I belonged in a biker gang? A leather jacket felt intimidating at the time but my style has really evolved and I love taking risks.

I started by only wearing the jacket on “fancy” nights out then with jeans and a t-shirt. This morning I was getting ready to run errands and I was deciding between my new awesome jacket or a comfy sweatshirt. Yes, a sweatshirt would have been cozy but I chose the new jacket. No, I wasn’t as comfy but I felt better and more put together. Although, this jacket is REALLY soft and easy to wear. I love wearing it with jeans, skirts or black pants ๐Ÿ™‚ . Well, now you know about my new obsession.

BLACK FRIDAY

Oh the sales! For my family, it is a tradition to fight the crowds on Black Friday. I am sure lots of people think we are crazy. Thursday night, my sisters and I went to Target and Kohls. I came straight from Thanksgiving dinner so I was dressed a little fancy for shopping.

I look exhausted in this picture. It was only about 8… Look, I am trying to work on being more photogenic. These things take time! ๐Ÿ™‚

These are my first true high-rise jeans and I don’t think I will every buy a different rise now. Yes, they go up to my belly button and no it doesn’t bother me. I felt weird for about a day wearing them but I am in love now. If you haven’t tried a high-rise, you need to. They just fit so amazing and make me feel more confident with my body. The ASTR deep v-neck shirt was an item I picked up on sale right before the Black Friday sale at Nordstrom (Of course it is no longer available, sorry! On Black Friday it was marked down an extra 20%) along with the adorable booties. OMG these booties. I am in love, they are the perfect color (they also come in several other amazing colors) and I am crazy for the laced-up style. The outfit is a little random but I think it came together nicely. The flannel under the dressy shirt was something fun I wanted to try. I like the idea of mixing fancy with causal, it makes things interesting. Fashion is about taking risks right?

P.S. I like to add items to my Wishlist on Nordstrom.com and then wait till they go on sale to purchase ๐Ÿ™‚ You would be surprised by how many things go on sale at Nordstrom.

 

EAST COAST DAY 2

DAY 2 of 6!

We all woke up well rested and excited for our second day in the city. It was about an hour train ride into the city from our friends house, where we were staying. Here’s a pic of Sandra and I at Madison’s adorable train station. Of course with our morning coffees ๐Ÿ™‚ .

IMG_5224

First stop, Grand Central Station. WOW! The station is beautiful! We took lots of pictures but nothing seemed to turn out awesome.. must have been the cameras fault right? Anyway, here is the only decent full body shot of my outfit for the day. I am crazy for this suede skirt because it goes with so much! I like to wear it with a longer shirt over or a tucked flannel. The shirt is so comfy and can be dressed up (sort of) or dressed down with jeans so easy. It comes with those hanging straps on the inside (which drive me nuts) and I plan to snip those out ASAP! The booties were a cute choice with this outfit but not a cute choice for walking around New York City. My feet were okay but they would have been a lot better in some Nike’s. But we were in the city, I had to dress up right?

0925151211

After touring the station for a little while, we tried out Dunkin’ Donuts. EVERYBODY says, “you must try Dunkin’ Donuts.” Look, this might offend some people but WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? I think the coffee was alright nothing special (#sorrynotsorry). After drinking our mediocre coffee, we took a taxi to the Rockefeller building.

IMG_5235

(Here’s Ryan calling for a taxi. OMG, he isย we are such dorks)

While waiting for our “appointment” time to take the elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller, I did some shopping at TOPSHOP ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Here is what I got:

IMG_5345

The yellow flannel has been on my radar for a while so I knew this was going to be a purchase. The lace-up flats have been all over Instagram lately and I have been drooling! I am so happy to now have a pair! I was between the these and the same ones but with tassels. Sandra and I decided the tassels were too intense. The NY (not from TOPSHOP) hat is just cute (sorry NY, I am only concerned about the cuteness factor. At least I am honest?).

The elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller was 90 seconds of torture. I get motion sickness and they had a crazy strobe light show on the ceiling while we rode up (I was so happy when it stopped!). The views were amazing but I was happy to be back on the ground floor ๐Ÿ™‚ .

SDC12038

We ate a late breakfast so we skipped lunch, terrible decision (some of us may have been hangry (hungry+angry=hangry), or maybe that was just me?). We went and wandered through the MET. AMAZING is all I can say. You could spend an entire day just looking at things in the MET. We left after a couple hours in need of dinner.

SDC12046

(I should be embarrassed by this but for some reason I am not)

SDC12051

Reichenbach Hall is where we ended up for dinner. It was a great atmoshphere with delicious chicken wings ๐Ÿ™‚ . The beer was pretty good too! After dinner, we checked out the Barcade (video game bar). The dudes had a great time, Sandra and I were exhausted.

Lastly, on our way back to the train station, I saw a Psychic sign. YES! This is not really for everyone but I think it is fun to see what they will say. The woman read my palm for a few seconds (while her dog barked and her kids yelled in the other room) then had some serious predictions. She said: If I am not careful, I will be pregnant with a boy in 7 months (um, no thanks! This mama is done ๐Ÿ™‚ ), I will be signing important papers in the next few months, we will be buying a different house in 2 years and I may be changing jobs. She also answered a few random questions of mine. It was a lot of fun, I may or may not have been intoxicated while my reading but I had a blast.

I hope you enjoyed reading about our day 2 in NYC, there are 4 more days to come!
