I don't like to show much skin, but sometimes it's inevitable. For example, I'm in Washington D.C. right now in about 102 degree heat with 85% humidity, and a little silky romper is almost too many clothes. However, when it's doable, I prefer pairing tank tops with long pants or long sleeves with shorts, as shown here, for just the right balance. Almost all of these pieces are available at Nordstrom, along with thousands of other items that are now on sale for the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. My mom used to buy me tights every year during the Anniversary Sale when I was a little girl, and I've been shopping it myself ever since I got my first job.

Below, I've narrowed down some of my favorite pieces on sale until August 6, but I can tell you from experience that everything gets snapped up right away...so if you're looking for some new pieces to round out your summer, pre-fall, and fall wardrobe, don't wait.

And then come back and tell me everything you got. I love a good shopping success story.

I have a hard time planning outfits without denim—I'm such a blue jeans girl that they feel more like a neutral than white or grey. Still, I try to switch it up for the sake of variety, and a pair of dove grey soft pants is a great replacement for my every day skinny jeans. Plus, it feels like I'm wearing pajamas.

Not pictured: both a curling iron burn and a kitchen knife cut from a rather clumsy week. Luckily, I can put all that behind me in Minneapolis for the week while visiting my sister. I'm looking forward to a lazy weekend up north at a friend's cabin before continuing my summer in the city. I hope you guys are having a wonderful week...and shopping the start of le Nordstrom sale.
