Have you ever opened a package and literally squealed?
That happened a few weeks ago when Nordstrom sent me this adorable rain coat and french bulldog umbrella! Although I did have to wait a few weeks for it to actually rain for me to wear it outside, I will confess to putting it on over my pajamas and wearing it around the house because it’s just that adorable. (I’m a little girl at heart, you all know this by now.)
So you can imagine my wholehearted disappointment when I discovered that they are sold out of both of these items now (I’m sorry!), which were part of the amazing Topshop x Nordstrom Brit Pop-In, inspired by the British music scene in the 90’s (amazing.) Although that means you can’t buy the exact items, I DID find some pretty great alternatives that are almost identical (see above and below!) Also be sure to check out the rest of the Brit Pop-In items, they really take me back to the Spice World days (and I mean that in the VERY best way possible.) Thank you, Nordstrom, for reminding us just how awesome the 90’s really were.
Additionally, I’ve been very all about this whole ribbon thing lately. I love tying it around my neck in lieu of a necklace (American Girl style, speaking of the 90’s), and I think it adds such a girly, charming touch to a messy ponytail. (The trick is to make it messy, if it’s slicked back and perfect it looks more baby cheerleader than messy chic.)
