Last Call to Shop the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Last Call to Shop the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends Sunday August 4th! This means sale prices go UP August 5th. If you’ve been sitting on your cart or waiting for restocks, now is definitely the time to do a final sale sweep, hit add to cart and press purchase! 

To be honest, I didn’t go crazy shopping the sale this year and they didn’t do as many restocks as I hoped but I did find some favorite purchases and things that will be (and already have been!) essential to my closet. There are also tons of great buys from their Beauty Exclusives and I always recommend checking out the Home Department for cozy things like blankets and remembering the “little things”—like underwear. 🤣

I wanted to roundup some items still in stock (and hopefully *still* in stock the moment you’re reading this!) You can see browse more of my previous #NSALE posts HERE

A Few Classic Things I Bought from 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

A Few Classic Things I Bought from 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

I shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access this weekend and wanted to share a few of the pieces I’ve picked up from the sale so far! I personally prefer shopping online and using in-store or curbside pickup, so I was able to grab some of the items last Friday and a few more came today, which I’ll be sure to share details for, as well!

If you’ve been following along on Instagram or with previous blog posts, you know I prefer to keep my NSALE purchases classic and essential to my closet (see 12 Casual Chic #Nsale Staples, ideas for Classic #NSale Buys and more Early Access #Nsale Favorites) and that’s how I always recommend shopping the sale. Focusing on the pieces your wardrobe really needs, items that fill a void and pieces wearable across multiple seasons. The sale is a great opportunity to add key pieces to your closet but ask yourself this: Do I want to wear this now? Am I still going to want to wear this come fall?

Faux Wrap Sweater and Denim Shorts

I hope you're all having a wonderful start to the week! I wanted to share this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Leith wrap sweater that's easily one of my favorite purchases from the sale. I wore it to work the second day I got it and then again this weekend for a day date with my sweet mama. I love how it can do double duty dressed up with work pants or denim and also worn casually with cutoff shorts.

I think a wrap style is such a flattering silhouette on any frame and I really adore the slouchy fit on this one. It's also a faux wrap, which means less fussing. It feels effortless and relaxed, still with a hint of sex-appeal thanks to the v-neck. It's also super soft and lightweight enough to wear now without feeling like you're in a bulky, heavy sweater—perfect for a/c and offices!

I'm wearing a small in the sweater and it's the 'tan etherea heather' color. It comes in several other colors—I still have my eye on the white!

I paired with these Levi's 501 shorts and my Vince Darlington flat. The shoes are also part of the sale and come in several colors but I can never resist nude! I'm in between an 8 and 8.5 and sized UP! 

As always, thank you for reading!

Last chance to shop!

Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had some weird overcast (yet still hot) weather but I managed to wear some of my new fall #nsale pieces, so it made me happy. In case you're still shopping, I wanted to round up and share some of my last-minute finds and favorites still in stock. Happy shopping and hope you enjoy your week ahead!

Sale Favorites -  Bomber Jacket ,  Midi Boots

Sale Favorites - Bomber Jacket, Midi Boots

One of my favorite finds from the sale has been this bomber jacket and these block heel grey suede booties. You guys, words can't describe how obsessed I am with these booties. I love the midi height and how well they pair with skirts and denim. These might be my favorite booties maybe EVER. They're also only $86 and also come in classic black. I'm in between sizes and sized UP!

Cold-shoulder top  still in stock!

You've seen me post this one several times and I'm still loving it. It's such a luxe satin feel and is perfect for finishing out the summer paired with shorts or dressing up with denim for a night out. It also comes in black that I can see taking into fall and is just $29.90. Wearing the xs.

I also love snagging a new moto jacket during the anniversary sale and I know everyone is always all about the BlankNYC version but it goes sooo fast! This hidden Topshop biker jacket gem is still in stock and a really amazing fit. I love the dark grey and it goes with everything! Wearing the US 4 here and I think it's such a great investment piece to add to your closet. I wear my moto jackets year-round—SF nights get cold!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases and Favorites

Happy Friday! If you haven't heard, today is the day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public, i.e., non-cardholders. I wanted to take the chance to share some of my purchases from the sale. 

Last year, my favorite purchase from the sale was my Halogen cardigans. I got one in grey and one in cognac and not a week goes by that I don't wear one of them—even in the summer. They're great for lounging, early morning/late night walks and keeping at the office for a/c temps.

This year, I snagged this BP cardigan in grey and I know it will be such a staple. I already wore it this past weekend on my flight and tossed it on with shorts and even over a romper for dinner out. I got an XXS. I also highly recommend this relaxed grey tee but it comes in tons of colors. Wearing an xs. I also picked up this long ribbed cardigan and can't wait for it to arrive!

Another favorite staple to pick up during the sale would have to be a moto jacket. Even though I have plenty in my collection, I can never resist adding another. This Topshop biker jacket is perfect and I love the dark grey tone. It will go with everything and is a great change-up from classic black or brown. I'm wearing it with the same grey tee and these Hudson step-hem jeans that fit amazingly well. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top

I can never resist a shoulder-baring top and this Soprano satin cold-shoulder in salmon is a new favorite for me. I always feel like I lack date night tops and this one is great for that, as well as casual days. I wore it to dinner already paired with jeans and my olive Rebecca Minkoff crossbody but it would look so cute tucked into cutoff shorts, as well. I purchased an xs.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to stock up on sweaters. For some, they might be "buy now, wear later" pieces but I've already been loving wearing mine with shorts for summer nights. This BP v-neck pullover is a favorite and is SO comfy and soft. I snagged it in pink but I'm also eyeing it in ivory, black and grey—it's that good! Wearing the xxs. 

I went a little crazy with my color palettes (pink, black, grey and olive) but I also couldn't resist this Free People pullover. It's the perfect loose knit and slightly slouchy fit, yet it still has a flattering shape and doesn't feel oversized. I'm wearing the xs.

The other cozy cardigan I got was this long ribbed cardigan by Halogen. It's a really great classic neutral and is so cozy. I've already worn this outfit to work (because the only time I can wear my cardigans is in the office with a/c) and I love it. It runs a little big through the back, so I would size down if possible. I'm also wearing these SP Black jeans from the sale and they're just $39.90. They're SO comfy and I love the stretch. Fit tts. 

Finally, the black jeans in the majority of these fitting room photos are these Madewell high-rise ripped skinny jeans. The fit is really effortless and easy (if that makes sense) and I love the slightly faded black. They fit tts. I also snagged these Halogen slide loafers and I'm in love. The black is super classic and they also come in tan/wheat. I'm in between sizes and went with my half size up! 

I ordered a few more things that are yet to come—see below!—and you can also check out more of my favorites and my post on how I shop the sale along with some of my favorite home decor from the sale!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

UPDATE! I know several of the items from my fitting room photos above have sold out, so I wanted to share more of my favorites that are still in stock. Most of these are items I have or tried on or are just brands I know and love. All really classic additions to your wardrobe and I feel like the majority are pieces that will never go out of style, which is really my goal when I shop the sale. I hope you guys are able to find some pieces you love! Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Decor

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Decor

I've officially been in my new apartment for five months now and I'm definitely still in the process of adding finishing touches and homey details. I tend to beeline to apparel during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but perused the Home Section and found some gems I thought I'd share with you guys, too. 

I've been in the market for a bar cart and can't believe this mirrored bar cart is part of the sale. It's such a great price at $149.90 and I'm sure much higher quality than the Target versions I've been eyeing. I also broke one of my bedside lamps during my move and have been looking to update them. These coppertone table lamps by Crystal Art Gallery are just what I've been looking for and I love the industrial/classic combination with the metal and marble. Again, such a great price at $59.90.

If I was still in the market for an area rug I'd be all over them! Personally, I love all the classic neutrals by Calvin Klein. 

A new pillow is the easiest way to update your living space and I can't resist a few new home accents

If you're not in the market for home decor, be sure to check out my top clothing picks and purchases and keep an eye out for more this Friday when the sale opens to the public!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Early Access & How To Shop The Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

Hello, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Happy Thursday, friends! I'm sure by now you've seen and heard all the buzz about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This is one of my favorite times of the year because it's the best time to snag brand new arrivals at some CRAZY, super-sale prices. I'm talking brands that never go on sale (plus your all-time Nordstrom favorites) at up to 1/3 of the price. If you're a Nordstrom cardholder (you should be! - It links right up to your debit card, i.e. no annual fees or the hassle of making payments), early access to the sale officially begins today, July 13th. If you're not a cardholder, the sale opens to the public on July 21st and runs through August 6th. Prices go back up on August 7th!

I'm not gonna lie, I legitimately get some mild anxiety when the sale starts. Shopping and navigating the site gives me serious FOMO every. single. time. I end up making several purchases throughout the sale because I find things I missed out on the first time I browsed. 

To make things easier, I wanted to share my thoughts and tips behind shopping the sale.

What Should I Buy During The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? 

The Anniversary Sale is going to be your time to stock up on all your pre-fall through winter favorites and my biggest piece of advice is 'buy now, return later.' Meaning - make sure to snag what you love when it's in stock because you can always return - Nordstrom makes it crazy easy! Keep in mind, they do often re-stock throughout the sale.

So, what am I buying and what should you look for? I like to think of the sale as a time to stock up on wardrobe staples. I try to avoid pieces that are overly trendy and instead focus on items that will last for years to come. Think your favorite jeans, the perfect day-to-night booties, that pair of over-the-knee boots you've been lusting for in your closet, your goes-with-everything handbag and your go-to, everyday sunglasses. These are the MUSTS! The staples you'll want to wear every day (& when it's finally cool enough), so don't miss these!

SHOP DENIM

 

Next, I always think layers and pieces to take me through winter and beyond. Cashmere sweaters and classic cardigans (my Halogen cardigans are still some of my favorite pieces from the #nsale last year - I STILL wear them year-round & on a daily basis), a must-have moto jacket or a classic trench/wool coat. This long camel coat is my fave! If I can get outerwear at a fraction of the price, that's a major win in my book. 

SHOP OUTERWEAR

Another major must for me is always sneakers. I could LIVE in athleisure (and secretly off-insta - I do!), so a new pair of kicks is always something I snag. This pair of white Nike sneakers are definitely coming home with (to) me. 

Then, I think about tops. Maybe it's counterintuitive but I think about these last. I usually grab basics like knits and sweaters + they always have some gorgeous tunic blouses in neutral and fall hues. This is also where I'll throw in a couple trends. For me, I know I lack night-out tops, so I might grab some fun dressier pieces in addition to my staples. What do you lack in your wardrobe? Now go grab it!

SHOP TOPS

I hope this helps and I would love to hear any of your tips or what you plan to purchase! I'm traveling this weekend for work but hope to share another post with my favorites when I can and will also be updating my Shop Page with all of my finds/favorites.

Happy shopping!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Final Day to Shop

Happy Sunday! Today is the very last day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so I wanted to put together a quick post on a few of my favorites that are still in stock. I had my eye on so many items I wasn't able to snag, but still feel like I came out of the #Nsale with some key pieces for fall. You can see some of my purchases here and more in stock items below.
