President's Day Clear the Rack Haul!

President's Day Clear the Rack Haul!

Happy President's Day, everyone! Whether you're out of school or work today or it's jut a regular old Monday for you, one of the great things about this holiday is the SALES. This year, I stopped by Nordstrom Rack's Clear the Rack sale and picked up a few items! 

Dolce Vita Jimmy Over-the-Knee Boots

The first item I want to show y'all are these amazing boots from Dolce Vita! I've been looking for a pair of black suede over-the-knee boots since they first became trendy (a while ago, I know, I'm late to the party). I wanted something that was fairly flat and had plenty of stretch over the calves and thighs. These are perfect for me, and I know I'll be wearing them a ton, especially in the fall and winter months! 

Originally, these boots retailed for $200 on the Dolce Vita website; they've since been discounted to $99.99. On Amazon (linked above), they currently go for $104.99. At Nordstrom Rack, they're marked as $70, but due to the Clear the Rack sale, I got them for $56.00!!

BP High Neck Linen Jumpsuit

Sadly, I couldn't find this jumpsuit anywhere online, because I soooo wish I could give y'all a link so we could all be jumpsuit twins!! I love this piece for the summer -- it's linen, which makes it totally breathable, and it's got a high, straight neckline, but it's easily adjusted by the tie at the back of the neck -- less chance of getting an awkward tanline! And finally, my favorite part -- it's got split legs!! I'm already planning on wearing this the next time I'm in Florida to stay nice and cool, while still being totally fashionable. 

According to the tag, this jumpsuit was originally $55.00, and I got it for $15.98! Score. 

Abound Pleated Velour Skirt in Green Jasper

According to Nordstrom's website, this skirt is sold out online, so I've linked a similar skirt from ASOS! I'm really into the idea of A-line midi skirts, right now -- this skirt is definitely a midi on me, as I'm much shorter than the model! Plus, this deep green is one of my favorite colors, and I love the depth that the velour material gives it. 

Originally, the Abound skirt was $32.97 on the Nordstrom website; the ASOS skirt I linked goes for $22.99 on Amazon. With the Clear the Rack sale's extra 20% off, I got the skirt for $10.46!

Ro & De Paper Bag Cargo Pants

I know I've mentioned it on the blog before, but...I hate jeans!! It's just so difficult to find a pair that fits me and is comfortable. At this point, I've nearly given up on jeans, because who needs them when there are so many great kinds of pants out there?! For example, these adorable paper-bag waist cargo pants from Ro & De. It might sound like a weird combination, but all the pocket details seriously elevate these silky trousers. I can't wait to wear these with some black booties and a cute bodysuit. 

On the Nordstrom Rack website, both the black and green bronze colors are totally sold out, and were originally listed at $78.00. I've linked a pair of black paper-bag waist pants from Simplee Apparel that go for $22.99, but they don't have all the cute pockets. I ended up getting mine for $18.72 -- that's 76% off the original price!!!

Madden Girl Shimmer Velvet Backpack

Last but not least, I got this crushed-velvet mini backpack from Madden Girl!! I love backpacks because they keep my hands free, but this size is perfect because I won't over-stuff it. Plus, I love that it's red and blue -- those are my school colors! I can't wait to use this on gamedays next year. The velvet is such a chic look and feels so great. 

On the Nordstrom Rack website, this backpack was initially sold for $68.00. There are still a couple in stock, and if you buy now, the price has dropped to $19.04, which is what I bought it for!! I've also linked a similar backpack on Amazon in case you're looking for a different color. 

That's it for my President's Day Haul!! I had a blast combing through all the clothes at Nordstrom Rack. Did you get any shopping done this President's Day Weekend?!

Until next time ~

XOXO, Maria
