I am always on the hunt for solid blue pieces because it is half of a perfect Gator game day outfit.  All kidding aside I have been loving all things royal blue right now.  It instantly makes you look tan and styles beautifully with gold accents.  Plus it color blocks perfectly.  I added this Amanda Uprichard piece to my growing royal blue collection and wore it to my birthday dinner.  Also, make sure to see my complete guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Anyone interested in a little hair tutorial?  This has been my go to hairstyle to beat the heat this Summer. Please ignore the slight windblown by the water take on it.

  1. Obsessed with royal blue! It’s literally one of my favorite colors. And you look absolutely amazing in it! I’m not a Nordstrom card holder… I know, I know, but there are definitely a few things on my radar that I hope are still in stock by the 17th! Can’t wait to see what you pick up!

    I’m personally not doing too much shopping this year, but I love the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. There’s always sooooo many awesome deals. I may have to take a small budget just to peruse through the sales racks. I may be able to justify a purchase if it’s running gear?

  9. YAY for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! I have a guide coming up tomorrow, too :) That moto bag is definitely on my wish list!!

    That blue color on you is just gorgeous! I have one dress that has royal blue on it and I love it. I just tend to keep it for summer and don’t let it see the light of day during football season hehe :) I keep forgetting about the Nordstrom sale. That never fairs well for my wallet, you know? I love both of those bags you chose and those Toms are great too! I guess I will spend the rest of the day stalking that sale. This is all your fault, you know!

  11. don’t get my started on how excited i am for the sale tomorrow. may have to take my lunch hour to do some online shopping haha. don’t forget that YSL lip set that’s on sale too! (duh i’m sure you won’t) – i’ll be snagging that one!

  12. That dress is so perfect for you! I love royal blue and definitely don’t have enough of it in my wardrobe. A dress like this would be great for Florida summers.

  13. Royal blue and kelly green on blondes is WINNING fo sho! Our best colors :) I’ve been looking for a bootie like that for nearly a year and haven’t found one in my size – I’ll be snagging those at the sale for sure!

    AHHH a fellow Gator! We are everywhere! :) Love this dress, and regarding buying blue pieces and thinking about gameday…I do the same thing ;D

  16. You look beautiful in these pictures!! Love your dress and those shoes. The color looks good on blondes too. ;-) Have you ever worn Rag & Bone jeans? Because I tried a pair of their skinny jeans on at Nordstrom and they were horrible on me. The pockets were huge and they just didn’t fit at all. :-/ Looking forward to seeing that hair tutorial too!! :-)

  22. That dress is gorgeous on you girl! Totally obsessing over that color! And every year I kick myself for not being a Nordstrom card holder, I just know it’ll be dangerous! I’ll have to wait with the rest of the peasants til the 17th :-P
