Lesson Learned: Don’t wait on Nordstrom Collaborations!

Well, I should have known better. I waited until after the kids were in bed before hammering out this blog post and my favorite sweater and skirt from Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collaboration are sold out. I’m so bummed. Not that I’m entirely sure where I’m wearing a black maxi tulle skirt, but man… it was so cute!

If you don’t know Atlantic Pacific, you should. It’s Blair Eadie’s fashion blog. She blogged before almost anyone else and she is a major influencer. Her style is self-described as east coast meets west coast. It’s very feminine, a little whimsical and totally fun. In my alternate reality – the one where I moved to New York, stay single and work in publishing – I would dress like Blair Eadie every day and traipse around New York in bows and heels. But I live in Sugar Land and really have no need for a black maxi tulle skirt (I can’t stop thinking about it!). I did find a few pieces that caught my eye that I think “every day” people could wear. I’ll keep my eye out for my favorite sweater. I can’t believe I missed it!!


Classic Pump. With a bow! I love bows!


More bows! I love dressy jackets!
Lavender Gloves, because why just wear black ones?
I can’t justify this purchase, but it’s a PINK TULLE SKIRT! It’s basically me as a skirt!
Great black pants!
I love faux wrap tops! And this print is a lot of fun!
A black strappy shoe should be in every closet, don’t you think?


I really do love this collection! All of it. I would buy every piece if I could!

So, lesson learned: don’t take your time to shop these collaborations! I’ll be a little more on top of it next collection!

xoxo –
