While the sales are going on now in Paris, it’s only a twice a year occurrence.  I miss regular mark downs and deals.  Good thing I can shop online at places like Nordstrom Rack where new styles are added each day and are up to 70% off. I can also shop in my pajamas in the middle of the night and on Sundays, unlike in France.
Nordstrom Rack is also offering one lucky HC reader a $100 gift card. To enter, visit the Nordstrom Rack page and sign in, then leave a comment back on this blog post with your favorite piece from Nordstrom Rack. If you have an HauteLook account, you can long in with that account too. Open to readers with US, Canada, and Australia shipping addresses only.
Since it’s also wedding season, I thought I would highlight some of the great pieces from the Nordstrom Rack that would be perfect for a wedding weekend starting with the 1.STATE Quilted Jacquard Jacket above.  It would be perfect over a dress, with jeans, and even the shorts below. 



I’m loving these Trove Faux Leather Shorts that are a chic alternative to a skirt in the summer. And at $24.97, they are a steal!


Every woman in Paris is wearing a wedge espadrille this summer and I love this BCBG Beacon Ankle Strap Wedge Espadrille in black. They also come in Pebble.  I would actually get both!


The final touch for the day outfit would be this Magid Striped Straw Tote. It would also be perfect for the beach or pool.


Of course if you’re going to a wedding, you’ll need a dress. It’s a great reason to break out a bold color like this green Eliza J Short Sleeve Lace Dress. You would definitely stand out in a sea of black dresses in the best way possible.



Fancy occasions call for fancy earrings like these Femme Floral Tearsrop Earrings from the Bauble Bar.
These Charles David Karis Sandals look chic but also comfortable for a night of dancing.




Since the dress is so bright, it’s best to keep all the accessories neutral including this BCBG Max Azria Diana Evening Bag.  Looks big enough to more than just a lipstick too.


There is no better way to spend the day after a wedding than recovering by the pool.  This Trina Turk Madagascar One Piece Suit would look great lounging or swimming.


These chic black Diane Von Furstenberg Sunglasses would be perfect for shielding your eyes from the sun and hiding your hangover too.

It’s also very important to wear sunscreen and to protect your face from the harmful rays of the sun. This Magid Hat would be perfect for the job.
