Dress: Scallop pinny scallop lace midi dress (size 00p) | Shoes: Louboutin Pigalle | Rug: NuLoom | Dress Form: Pottery Barn | Pink chair HERE

Did this week go by super fast?  I feel like January is just moving way too quickly!  Lots of goodies and sales to share today.  Nordstrom has up to 40% off new markdowns.  These cute vixen ankle booties are now 40% off.  Would look great with jeans or leggings.  I ordered these over the knee boots (rarely go on sale) and they arrive tomorrow!  Get 40% off full priced styles at Ann Taylor (use code: FRESHPICKS). I love this grommet tie sleeve sweater and this boyfriend tunic cardigan,  Get 40% off full priced styles at Loft with code: FRESH (love this and this).  Also, if you have trouble finding jeans with a shorter inseam, this is a great option and 58% off (one of my favorite brands for denim).

I don’t know’s been going on but I haven’t really found anything I LOVED recently until I put this dress on.  I wasn’t even expecting to like it nor did I expect it to fit so nicely.  It’s everything I love in one dress – pink, scallops and lace.  Sizing runs small and I’m wearing 00 petite.  It fits me like a glove with NO alterations.  I was afraid the length was going to be too long but the longer hemline is perfect.  I adore the necklace – so flattering.  Sizes sold out super fast but inventory changes daily so don’t lose hope!  This would be the cutest dress for Valentine’s Day or for a spring/summer wedding.

Top: c/o Scallop peplum top (size XS, only $11) | Pants: Ann Taylor ponte pants (size 00p) | Purse: Tory Burch (similar HERE) | Bracelet: c/o kate spade

How adorable is this scallop peplum top?  Why do I keep hoarding scallop hem items? I can’t help it!  It’s madness but they make me so happy.  Plus I love peplum tops – so flattering and easy to wear (no sucking in needed).  The material is a stretchy ponte like fabric.  It’s slightly see-through near the bra area but nothing to drastic.  Just be sure to wear a nude bra and you’ll be fine.  Sizing runs VERY small so I’d recommend sizing up if you want a more comfortable fit.  I was happy that the sleeves are narrow and the length fits my short arms (yay!).  I can see this paired with a pencil skirt for spring and summer – so cute!

Sweater: c/o Cream turtleneck sweater (size small) | Skirt: c/o Polka dot skirt (size XS, navy) | Pumps: Halogen navy bow pumps (similar HERE) | Purse: kate spade | watch: c/o kate spade | Bracelet: c/o kate spade | Necklace: Bow necklace

I always love a classic, simple turtleneck but they are so hard to find.  I like sweaters that are more fitted so they’re easier to tuck in plus it looks less bulky.  I like this one so much that I have it in gray too (see HERE). Sizing runs small but the material allows for a lot of stretch.  Quality is surprisingly pretty good considering the price.

You know I’m always a sucker for anything with polka dots so this skirt was and obvious choice.  It’s the perfect length for petites and office appropriate.  Plus it has pockets!  The material is on the thinner side and I experienced static cling but it went away after a couple of hours.  The zipper is cheap and flimsy so you might want to consider swapping it out.  The quality isn’t as nice as I had hoped but for $12, you can’t really expect much.  Still cute and you’ll get enough use out of it.
