[ tassel dress c/o | similar sunnies | similar sandals, also in brown | my own jewelry ]

But are they mixing Aztec print with tassels?

I say Nay.

And that’s too bad because this one’s …

… got some zip!

Know what else is pretty zippy?  The fact that some of us have early access to the Nordstorm Anniversary sale.  As I detailed in my last post, the #NSale is pretty much the bomb dot com and shopping it NOW is the smart way to go.  And, as I indicated that I would be sharing my must-haves from this sale over the next few posts – starting with my faves for shoes, boots and dresses.






OH ~ and before I go.   I keep meaning to share that if you love Kate Somerville skin care as much as I do  (her Daily Deflector Moisturizer and her UncompliKated SPF setting spray consumes my every thought)  then post a photo on Instagram, like I did, on how you stay safe in the sun. Post images of SPF, or sunnies, caftans and a hat, flatlays … anything goes and tag @katesomervilleskincare with #SunSavvySnaps AND #SomervilleSweeps for your chance to win
