Classic Navy Midi Dress + The Top Designer Steals of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

DRESS: Tibi (on sale!)  |  PUMPS:  Louise et Cie (on sale!)  |  SUNGLASSES:  Sonix (on sale!)  |  EARRINGS: Halogen (on sale!)  | CHOKER: Argento Vivo (on sale!)  |  HANDBAG: Rebecca Minkoff (on sale!)



This navy midi dress is one of my favorite purchases from the ongoing Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because (a) it’s a simple staple piece I know I’ll wear forever, (b) it’s not often you can get a Tibi dress at a casual 40% off, and (c) it has pockets.  (To be fair, the aforementioned reasons (a) and (b) are certainly the most compelling, but my excitement when encountering dresses with pockets knows no bounds, so I felt it should be included.)  Mixing high-end, timeless classics like this dress with more affordable trendy pieces and accessories like these gold pumps or this pretty choker has long been modus operandi, and this epic sale certainly presents plentiful opportunities to snatch up lots of both.



Tomorrow, I’m starting a fun budget-friendly series that will be really perfect for all of my readers who are looking for super affordable clothing and accessories (stay tuned for details tomorrow!!) but today I wanted to spotlight some of the designer pieces on sale that I think are really worth the splurge.  We’re talking those staple pieces that you use everyday, that wear like iron and don’t go out of style.


As I’ve gotten older and seen my lower-end, affordable favorites tire and stretch out after a single season, I’ve really come to appreciate the higher-quality pieces that cost a tad more, but have lasted me through years and years.  Case in point: I bought a near-identical skirt to this one five years ago, and it’s still one of my most frequently-worn skirts (and looks brand new!).  Check out all of my favorite staple designer pieces below!
