What We Wore // a casual afternoon + our NordstromRack Wishlists

(This post was sponsored by Nordstrom Rack. thank you for supporting the sponsors that make The Freckled Fox possible!)

Lately Martin and I have been trying to get out in the afternoons together for our usual weekly dates (as long as he can get an afternoon off and our babysitter is out of school) because not only is more open to do, but we don't have to worry about whatever things are open in the evening closing before we can get to them.haha On this date in particular we kept it casual and easy, and just had fun wandering through some antique stores and spending time in the warm breeze outside. fantastic.
I don't know if you guys have heard or not, but just opened it's virtual doors just a couple weeks ago, and martin and I both couldn't be happier! Nordstrom Rack stores have always been one of our very favorites to shop at when we go on any little trips away from our city, because it has our favorite expensive high-quality brands for a fraction of the retail value. Now we don't have to travel to go shopping, and the prices online seem even better (up to 70% off!) than in the stores since I can sort all the merchandise by price. We are so thrilled! and we're also in trouble, since I've been going back every day to see the new stuff (things go so quickly already, and new stuff comes in constantly). Big trouble! haha
These looks we're wearing today are like 95%, and we got free shipping (if you're in the US, canada or Australia) because we ordered over $100 worth of stuff. Also if you're a fan of and already have an account like I do, you'll be happy to know you can switch back and forth from the two stores with that same account! Also there are sales powered by hautelook, and you have three months to return either by mail or to a store which makes online shopping so much more comfortable doesn't it? I always worry a little ordering clothes when I haven't had the opportunity to try them on.haha
Well I should probably stop gushing and let you guys get back to your day, but I hope that I've sold you on, because you guys are always asking for reviews on my favorite stores, and this place is at the top of the list! Here are a couple more favorites on Martin's and my wishlists that will surely be out of our virtual shopping carts and in our closets before too long.haha

  1. You two are SUCH a gorgeous couple. Love the outfits. xx

  2. I have a pair of sandals that need replacing soon. Once I feel even an inkling of spring they're out out the closet and on my feet until the freeze starts again. :)

  3. What an adorable post! Love both looks; perfect for casual dates!


  4. Nordstrom Rack is a magical place - there is one not too far from my office in NYC and it is dangerous!

  5. Thank you so much for choosing to wear Vitrine's earrings and pyrite bullet necklace. You make such a cute couple :) xx

  6. I love that you guys both love to shop!
    My summer staples change each year, but this year I'm pretty sure it's going to be my new striped sailor shorts.

  7. Love both of your outfits! Wish I could talk my husband into letting me style him every now and again. Also, can I please have your GORGEOUS long hair?

    Dearest Lou

  8. I like how you can wear very casual clothes in a very feminine way !!

  9. How cool! I had no idea Nordstrom Rack was selling online now. Thanks for spreading the news. Great outfits too.

  10. Your style is so fabulously comfy chic - I love it! And y'all look great together. Props to your hubby for curating his own shopping wish lists!!
