Open Knit Sweater


I purchased this open knit sweater for our upcoming trip to California. I thought it would be the perfect transition piece because of the open knit style. We are headed to northern California, so the weather will be a little cooler and I thought this sweater would be perfect. I really love the bell sleeves too! I paired it with a simple white cami underneath and my favorite shorts of the moment from Old Navy.

Let's talk about these pearl slides for a minute. I have been thinking about buying the Steve Madden version ever since I saw them online, but didn't want to pay $70 for them, so I chose to wait it out. And much to my surprise, Target came out with an exact dupe for them at only $25! So, I jumped on it and purchased them right away. I have to say they are my new favorite pair of slides. They are comfortable and match everything. If you are interested in them, buy them because they are selling quickly!

Ruffle Sleeve Dress


This ruffle sleeve dress was another one of my Nordstrom Sale purchases. It comes in 4 other colors and is in stock in all sizes in most of those colors. I like this dress a lot more than I thought I would. I love the cut and it has pockets!! A huge selling point for me. Any dress that has pockets I seem to like a whole lot more! 😂

A dress like this can be worn both with sneakers and then dressed up like I did here with mules. I also paired it with the cutest pineappple bag that I recently picked up c/o from Zaful. I can't wait to pair this little bag with more outfits. It is the cutest addition and it is under $20!

This past weekend was a pretty relaxed weekend. Brian went to visit his parents and I decided to stay home so I could get some work done around the house. I attended a fun charity event at my friend Ryan's house and then grabbed brunch with Kasey (Running in Heels Blog) and Vanessa (Vanessa in Dallas). Kasey and I also shopped the Nordstrom Sale again! I just can't stay out of there! NOT GOOD FOR MY BANK ACCOUNT! I will be sharing a couple of other looks here and there until the sale is over. So stayed tuned for those.

Thank you so much for stopping by! xo, Nataly

BEB Turns 2!


Happy Monday and Happy 2nd Anniversary to Beautifully Elegant Blog. It was 2 years ago today that I decided to re-start my blog and make it a full time dream of mine. Through the past 2 years, I have made so many wonderful friends and met so many people I wouldn't have if I didn't decide to start blogging again.

I want to keep this short, because trust me, I could go on all day, but THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for making Beautifully Elegant Blog a part of your daily routine!!! Thank you for leaving me wonderful comments and most of all thank you for supporting my dream!! I wouldn't have all this without you all! You are what makes me want to blog. You are what makes me want to share my story. I honestly didn't think this is the path that God would have chosen for me, I am an introvert by nature, so being in the spotlight isn't something I enjoy. But, here I am sharing my love for fashion, beauty and lifestyle with the world...well...anyone that will read this! 😂 In all seriousness, you all are amazing and I am so thankful for all of you! 💗


Onto this dress, I picked this out a couple of weeks ago and am so happy with it. It is a linen material and the perfect lightweight dress for summer. It is comfortable and fits perfectly (wearing a size small). The straps are also adjustable which is always a plus! I also really love the color combination here. It is unlike any item I have in my closet right now.

I paired it with my favorite little basket bag, which is under $20, and my favorite shoes of all time, these wedges! I love this outfit for date night or a night out with the girls.

I also wanted to share some of the Nordstrom Sale items that are still available. A lot sold out, so I know that you are probably interested in seeing what is left!

NSALE Public Access Starts Today!


I purchased several items at last years NSALE that made a come back for this year and I thought it would be a good idea to show you those again and how I styled them last year. Most of them are identical to items that are in this year's sale.

The sale opens up to the public TODAY. So, if you don't have the Nordstrom card, today you will be able to shop. Some items may have sold out, but Nordstrom will likely be re-stocking some of the items that you loved and missed the first time around. Be sure to buy them this time before they sell out again. My moto is 'buy now and return later'. 😂

I will be making some more purchases today and will be sharing them soon. Also, if you missed any of my other NSALE posts check them out here → My Picks, My Purchases + Review, Satin Cold Shoulder Top and NSALE Picks Under $100. Is there anything that you are looking to pick-up?

Thank you so much for reading. xo, Nataly


BLANKNYC LIFE CHANGER JACKET $64.90

This was one of my favorite purchases from last year's sale. I love the moto style and the versatility of this jacket. You can easily pair this jacket with a delicate cami, dresses, skirts and denim. Another thing I love about this jacket is the price. It is hard to find a good faux leather jacket for under $100. This one also comes in a fun metallic version too.


BLANKNYC SUEDE MOTO JACKET $125.90

Another one of my favorite purchases from last year. This jacket is so perfect for fall and winter. It is a great option for layering over dresses and tops. This color isn't available, but they have 3 other color options that I love just as much if not more!


BP. SEAMED MOTO LEGGINGS $25.90

These leggings are so comfortable and I love the moto detailing. It takes your average pair of leggings up a notch. I was so glad they brought these back this year, because I needed a new pair. I have paired this leggings with sweaters, tunics, and oversized cardigans.


BP. PLAID SHIRT $31.90

This plaid shirt was another item that I knew I wanted last year. It is perfect to wear with shorts for the summer months and then pair it with leggings for Fall. You can't go wrong with a good plaid shirt in your closet.


TOPSHOP RIPPED DENIM JACKET $63.90

A good denim jacket is a key piece in my wardrobe. I pair them with dresses, skirts and everything in between. And I love this distressed/oversized version.


BP. BUFFALO CHECK SCARF $15.90

This was one of my favorite purchases from last year. I got in both the red and grey check. I am so glad it came back again this year because that means you all have another chance to purchase it. It is under $20 and a great option for fall and winter. I literally wore this scarf so many times last year!!

Lace Trim Tank


This tank was a more recent Nordstrom Sale purchase. I picked it based on the fact that I could wear it now and later. Plus, it is only $18.90, comes in two colors and has the cutest lace details on the hem line. I love the higher neck line too, because I can get away with pairing this with a skirt or black pants and a blazer for work.

I decided to pair it with my favorite white shorts and slides for an easy, casual look. I am planning on pairing it with distressed denim {restocked in all sizes} and heels for date night too. This tank is going to come in handy for the heat wave that is supposed to be hitting Dallas this week.

We have another hospital site visit at work today and Friday. So, I am gearing up for 10 hour work days. Luckily, I get time paid over time, so these long days are paying for all my #NSALE purchases! 😂😂

Thank you so much for reading! xo, Nataly
