TRENDS TO TRY + WIN A NORDSTROM GIFT CARD!

I am so excited for today you guys! 
I am teaming up with the gorgeous Lauren from Style Elixir to show you a couple new trends we tried plus we are giving away a $50 Nordstrom Gift Card! 
So, a couple of the new trends this season are black/white, and stripes! The black and white is always a classic mod look that can be kept super simple like I have done below. Or step it up by adding a fun bright color, because we know that the brights are also very big this season! 
Today as you will see, I am showing you my version of the black and white trend and below is Lauren's look of stripes! Then if you head on over to her blog, you can see how she styled black and white and how I wore stripes! Hope you like the looks we put together!

Oh and don't forget to enter to win the $50 Nordstrom Gift Card below!
Then to make shopping easy for you if you win, we each put together our 5 favorite things that are currently at Nordstrom for under $50 so if you win the gift card you have some ideas of what's at Nordstrom! 

TREND ONE - BLACK & WHITE

TREND TWO - STRIPES
(To see how I wore stripes, visit Style Elixir here)


Now for the Nordstrom items to keep your eye on in case you win!
