{Nordstrom YOUphoria Contest & You're Invited!}

A week ago Nordstrom invited me to go on a little shopping trip at their Oakbrook store for their YOUphoria Campaign which is all about finding the items that make you happy (and like most girls, shopping is pretty high on my list of things that make me happy).  My Nordstrom stylist Angie (pictured with me above) and I got to run around the store picking out some pieces that struck me.  Turns out I tend to only pick up dresses, flirty skirts and silk floral prints (big surprise there!). After trying a few outfits on, I ultimately chose the one pictured above- links to all the pieces are below.

The best part about this campaign is that the fun doesn't stop with this little outfit- Nordstrom Oakbrook will be throwing me and the other two bloggers participating in the YOUphoria campaign a little party next week!!  The bash will take place on Thursday, September 26th from 6 to 8pm in the Savvy department at the Oakbrook store hosted by the fabulous Liz of Sequins & Stripes.  I would absolutely love the chance meet some of my readers in person so I hope you can make it out next week to enjoy some cocktails and snacks alongside fun beauty treatments and of course a little shopping!

Also, I would love you forever if you would

my outfit: Wayf Top, $58 |  Topshop Skirt, $76 |  Louise et Cie Pump, $119  |  Brian Atwood Clutch $495

{I absolutely love this  floral silk Joie blazer, but couldn't quite find the perfect pieces to pair with it.}

{I tried my final outfit with a white blazer, but it looked a bit too Miami Vice for my liking}

{this Ted Baker dress was a very very close 2nd runner up.  It felt so amazing on that I may just have to buy it on my next Nordstrom trip!}

{after we settled on my final outfit choice it was off to get glammed up by the team at Nars}

{I am obsessed with these chunky gold heels- plus I wore them around the store as we shopped for a few hours and they are surprisingly comfy! The Brian Atwood clutch was the last item I chose for my outfit and I love the way the bright pop of color really brings everything together.}

YOUphoria: It's more attainable than you think. Find yours at Nordstrom.

  1. What a fun night! I'm sure having your own personal shopper wasn't half bad either :) Loved the outfit that you ended up with, so fun!
