How to style paperbag shorts + nsale faves under $50


Happy Friday friends! In case you haven’t heard, the Nordstrom anniversary sale is now open to shop for ALL cardholders. I know a lot of you guys were bummed that stuff from your wishlist already sold out. So today I’m really excited to share a few of my favorite pieces with y’all that are all fully stocked AND under $50!



These paperbag shorts were one of the first items I purchased from the Nordstrom sale this year and I couldn’t believe 1) how flattering they were and 2) the price tag! These are on sale for $31.90 and are AMAZING quality! I was drawn to them because I don’t have anything like this in my wardrobe and loved that I could wear them both now in the summer, and also transition them into fall! They fit tts – for I am wearing the 25 for reference!

I think making purchases like these paperbag shorts can feel intimidating sometimes because…what will you wear with them? How will you style them? I love that this is an outfit you can make really casual with slide sandals or booties…but you could also pair it with heals and a bodysuit cami for a sleek date night look!

I styled my paperbag shorts with this lace trim cami (on sale for $24) and this really cozy cardigan (on sale for $31 and still fully stocked!). Again, this is a look you could easily transition into fall with and I think the combo of the high waisted shorts with a satin cami is SO feminine and flattering! The shorts really accentuate your waistline (in a good way) and make your legs look so long!



Rounding up tons of under $50 finds from the Nordstrom sale below, that are still in stock (for now!) and GREAT buys:


Not going to lie. All of these #nsale purchases are making me CRAVE cooler temperatures and fall! And today it’s legit 100 degrees outside haha. But that’s why I love outfits like this, that you can mix and match and truly wear year round!

Thank y’all so much for all of your support during the #nsale so far this year! Your kind words and encouraging DM’s have meant so much to me. I LOVE covering this sale – it’s honestly one of the funnest times of the year for me. I’m really excited to share my home picks, baby, and menswear with you guys over the next week! Stay tuned for that.

ALSO if you don’t care about the nordstrom sale at all haha no worries! I’m actually sharing recent amazon faves on the blog this coming Monday! Can’t wait to share those finds with you guys!


Hope you guys have a fun and restful weekend! Thanks for reading!
