Starting today at Tory Burch, you can take 30% off your purchase of $250 or more with code FALL16. I love this promo which is different from the tiered promos in the past. With the tiered promo you had to spend $700+ to take 30% off.

The collection this Fall has pretty florals on a black background, a horse & chariot print and the Gemini Link Collection found on bags, shoes and clothes. Here are just a few of my picks. I can tell you the Gemini Link Tortoise Loafers are beautiful IRL. For me, it is hard to choose between those and the Gigi Pump. Then the Blossom collection is so gorgeous. I have seen the Ballerina Flat and the leather applique flowers are so lovely on the flat.

Nordstrom is honoring the 30% off on a few items; shoes from what I can tell. And cardholders get Triple Points right now. I was in the store last weekend and tried on a few items. I’ll share those with you tomorrow.

Happy Shopping!

Tory Burch is having a semi-annual sale and you can take 30% off sale items with code EXTRA30. This promo ends July 11.

~ Bridget Dress, Medium ~

This dress had me imagining a vacation to Greece. The Medium fit well and the neckline and hem are beautifully embroidered. I ended up passing on this dress to get the one below but I may have to go back to the store and buy this.


~ Gigi Shirtdress, Hudson Blue Linosa, (Lemon Curd) size 6 ~

I found this dress in-store, while the Lemon Curd is still available online. It’s really cute and perfect for the upcoming 4th of July holiday since it’s red, white and blue. It’s 100% Silk and unlined and has pockets. I was swimming in the size 8 so this does run Large. I tend to be more of a Medium/8 in Tory Burch and rarely size down.


~ Miller Sandals, Dulce de Leche, size 7 ~

I have been wearing my Miller Sandals in Brown Snakeskin almost daily. I love that they dress up any outfit. The Dulce de Leche are also called White but they are really a very pretty cream color. The difference between these and my snakeskin sandals is the double-T logo. On this sandal it’s hard and metal on top with very little give. There is no metal double-T logo on the brown sandal. These do run TTS.



I would suggest calling a store because I know there are items in the store that are no longer online. They can then try to find what you want in another store. This promo is not valid at the Tory Burch outlet.

Are you shopping this Tory Burch EXTRA30 promo?

A few weeks ago I stopped by Tory Burch to try on an off-the-shoulder top they had. I knew it would match the J.Crew linen shorts in Byzantine Copper perfectly. They also has the matching embroidered skirt in-store so I grabbed that to try as well.



~ Eliza Embroidered Top, size 6 ~

I found the top to fit surprisingly well in the size 6. I thought it would be tight across the chest when the top was pulled up, like in the second pic below. I know some off-the-shoulder tops are needing to be adjusted quite a bit to stay off the shoulder. Unfortunately, I was tugging on this one all day the first time I wore it. But in the top’s defense, I was holding a baby or playing with little kids most of the day. I think if I had worn this when I wasn’t so active then it would have stayed put.


It looks just as good not off-the-shoulder, making it wearable when that trend goes away. The top also comes in a bright red. The white is on sale here.


~ Cassie Embroidered Skirt, Medium ~

The Medium was a nice fit and wasn’t too full at the hips but I could have sized to a Small due to the elastic waist. The sides of this skirt are a little shorter than the front and back. Both items are embroidered in bright thread, making it stand out against the white background. This embroidered pattern also comes in a jean and dress. I found the skirt on sale here.


The sandals I’m wearing are the Pecha Sandal and sold out everywhere online. I’m wearing a size 7 and they were very comfortable for such a high heel. They also blended well with my skin-tone. I did have an issue with the ankle strap being too short so I passed on buying them. I’m happy with the J Crew Factory Stacked-Heel Sandals. There is a Pecha Mule available that my store had plenty of as well.


Shop more of my picks from Tory Burch! I have the Miller Sandal in Snakeprint but I also think the confetti print is cute for Summer.

I was given a gift card for my birthday so I am trying to decide from the picks above what I should buy. I’d like to buy on sale to have the money go farther and am leaning towards the striped Jackie Tank, and the embellished Hit the Road Tee.

As you know by now, Tory Burch is my new favorite brand. All the pieces I’ve purchased have held up well, fit well and I wear a lot of those pieces on a regular basis. It’s why I’m looking to add more Tory pieces to my closet this year, spending the money on items I know will last. Let’s take a look at three tops I tried on last week.

~ Embroidered Cotton Tunic, size 8 ~

I went to the store to specifically try-on this tunic. It’s shorter than Floral Linen Tunic I have and hits around the hip. The sleeves and hem are embroidered in multiple colors with red being the stand-out. I think it might have been nice to have some of that embroidery at the neckline.




The size 8 was the best fit, and is my normal size. The boxy style seems a bit shapeless on me. I would prefer it to have a little bit more shape at the waist. I do prefer the sleeve hitting at the elbow. The neckline is low but still covers well, IMO.


~ Smocked Peasant Top, size 6 ~

I wasn’t interested in this originally when it showed up online but after seeing it styled as an off the shoulder option I tried it on. Due to the smocking the top fits very loose. I ended up sizing down to a 6. I tend to shy away from smocked items that have it at the arms because it’s always too tight but the smocked on this blouse was fine and I barely noticed it.



It really does look cute as an off-the-shoulder option and I actually think I would wear it this way during the Summer. There are ties at the neckline and the waist has a contrasted smocked band.



~ Ruffle-Sleeve Cotton Peplum Top, size 10 ~

The SA brought this to me while I was in the fitting room. They had just gotten it in the store and she hadn’t seen it on anyone yet. It tried on the size 8 and it was very tight in the arms. I didn’t even get the top all the way on. The size 10 fits a lot better and the side-zip helps get it off and on with ease.


The sleeves have two ruffles and on someone with a longer arms will hit 3/4-length while on me the sleeves hit at the wrist. The waist is smocked giving a little definition and the hem is a single ruffle. The blouse is lined in cotton so the sheerness you see in the arms is not in the body.





I have my eye on a couple of other Tory tops as well.

I think my favorite is the Ruffle-Sleeve Cotton Peplum Top. To be honest, I didn’t like it when I tried it on but after seeing the pics a few times, I think it’s really cute, something I’ll wear quite a bit in the Summer and will look good with pants, skirts and shorts.

What do you think of these tops from Tory Burch?
