Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Part 2

I’m back with another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post! This time I’m going to share what I’ve ordered so far, be prepared…it’s a lot. And by no means am I keeping everything, but I like to make sure things don’t sell out. I’ll keep you posted on which items I keep/send back etc.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t annoyed about the 3 orders Nordstrom actually canceled on me. I do encourage you to keep checking back for sold out items. I believe they also restock certain items when the sale opens to the public.

Anyway, here we go! I’d love to hear which you love, which you hate, and what you’ve bought!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-Part 1

I wanted to get this post up a few days ago but work was crazy and life got in the way. It happens. Moving on, it’s one of my favorite times of the year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Pre Sale) started yesterday. I’m sure you’re familiar with it, but just in case you aren’t, let me fill you in. The Anniversary Sale is your chance to get brand new fall merchandise before it sells for full price. So you’re getting new arrivals for less, rather than season leftovers. There are thousands and thousands of items on sale sitewide. It’s the perfect time to stock up on a new winter coat, handbag, boots, etc!

The pre-sale started yesterday, July 12th for cardholders, and will be available to the public July 20th. The sale ends August 5th and prices will go up.

I plan to do a few posts throughout the sale with updates as to what I’ve purchased, how things fit, and what I’ve returned. Today I’m going to share some personal tips, and some pictures from my dressing room session today.

Tips for shopping the sale…

  1. If you don’t already have a Nordstrom credit card, get one! They allow you early access to the sale. Plus you earn points with each purchase. Your points turn into Nordstrom Notes aka money to spend!
  2. If you see something you even THINK you might like, buy it. Things sell out FAST. Nordstrom has an awesome return policy, so you can buy now and decide whenever if you’d like to keep it.
  3. If there’s an item that sold out, bookmark the item and keep checking because things are constantly being returned and exchanged.
  4. If you order online, buy several sizes if you’re unsure, because if you order the wrong size and then try to exchange, you might be SOL.
  5. If you can, try and shop the sale both in-store and online. I’ve noticed that different pieces stand out to me in different settings.

Here’s what I’ve tried on today. I’ve linked to each item and included what size I went with.

img_8704

Hinge Balloon Sleeve Cardigan – This cardigan is SO soft! It comes in a bunch of great fall colors. I sized down to a medium and it was perfect!

img_8701

North Face Furry Fleece Jacket – So So soft! I sized up to an XL in this one.

img_8697

Treasure & Bond Baseball Tee– I’ve always been a sucker for a good baseball style tee and this one didn’t disappoint. The fit was perfect and the color is even better in person. Wearing large.

img_8693

Bp. Washed Moto Legging – These fit me totally awkward. The legs were super tight and the butt and thighs were way too big which is normally the complete opposite of how things fit. They weren’t comfortable since they felt as if they’d fall down the second I bent over. I’d be curious to hear how they fit other body types. Wearing size large.

img_8691

Bp. Textured Stitch V-neck Rollover – This was a fun basic piece to throw on, and comes in a bunch of colors.  Fits true to size, wearing a large.

img_8687

Bp. Raw Edge Scoop Tee – One thing I love to stock up on every year are basics. Good basics are essential. I initially ordered this tee in the black/brown stripe combo but after looking at this picture with a friend, I decided I’m ordering this color as well! It fits true to size, wearing a large.

img_8686

Socialite Thermal Henley – Literally the SOFTEST SHIRT EVER! I ordered the camo and gray online and just received an e-mail that the camo one was canceled. I’m so bummed. Grab whichever colors are left because its soft, fits great, and is perfect for anything. Wearing a large.

img_8684

Bp.  – Raw Edge V-neck Tee – I ordered this in a bunch of plain colors. Wearing a large.

img_8682

BlankNyc Meant To Be Moto Jacket – I own several BlankNYC jackets and I love them all! This one doesn’t disappoint. I’m wearing an XL because it was all that I could find in the store, but I typically wear a Large in this brand.

img_8681

img_8678

BlankNYC No Limit Suede Moto Jacket – This one comes in a green and red version. It fits amazing, wearing a large.

img_8674

Leith Woven Relaxed Fit Blazer – I’ve always loved oversized blazers and this one didn’t let me down. Fits true to size, wearing a large.

And today’s outfit, just because. My shoes are on major clearance, shop them here.

Let me know what you think, what you bought, or whether or not anyone actually reads this far 🙂

Friday Faves #6

What a week! Wednesday holidays sure make the week go by faster than usual. It’s time for this weeks Friday Faves!

1. White & Gold Office Chair Husband and I are currently re-doing our home office, which I’m super excited about. I saw this chair and decided that my whole office needed to be designed around it. Stay tuned for more on this!

2. Season 5 of Younger started a few weeks ago, and if you’ve never seen this show your missing out. First off it’s a Darren Star show, need I say more? I’d try describing it but I probably won’t do it any justice. But, it takes place at a publishing company, has an amazing looking cast. A big part of the last season was focused on a book they were publishing, Marriage Vacation, which is now an actual book that ties into the show! If you’re a fan like me, you’ll also check out their Facebook pre-show and podcast, Younger Uncovered featuring my favorite radio host, Taylor Strecker.

 

3.  Sutton Tassel Necklace– I’ve realized that I buy a new tassel necklace pretty much each season. They just work with everything, and there are so many different styles. I just added this one to my collection and I can’t wait to wear it with everything from plain white tees, to a casual summer wedding.

4. My new favorite plain t-shirts – I’ve been looking for t-shirts that have a good fit, feel, and price. I’ve been purchasing these like crazy, and if you purchase a multi-pack it’s really not a bad deal.  I’ve even found a few packs on sale for less than the price of one! Keep your eye out. They fit true to size and come in a variety of styles!

That’s all for this week! Let me know what you think in the comments

Recent Purchases

I’ve had some great feedback on sharing items I’ve purchased so I thought it would be fun to take a little peek into what’s been arriving at my doorstep lately.

  1. Reversible Belt – I’m not gonna lie, I’m dying for this belt, but with a price tag of $350 I was having such a hard time because I couldn’t decide between black or brown. Cue in this, amazing Coach Belt for almost half the price, and the best part? It’s REVERSIBLE! So basically I got two for the price of one. SCORE! It’s also available in a bunch of other colors. Check it out here.Screen Shot 2018-07-03 at 1.09.29 PM
  2. Red Chevron Quilt Crossbody Bag – I’m starting to see the Gucci-esque theme happening here. I was crushing on the Marmont and Disco bags, and this one is the perfect combination of the two, plus it’s a fraction of the price. I have been using this non-stop! It’s made of real leather and nice quality. It’s on MAJOR SALE right now, plus you can take an extra 25% off with code HAPPY4thScreen Shot 2018-07-03 at 1.31.08 PM
  3. Rosè All Day Button Down Boyfriend Button Down. – This is literally silky soft, as described! The oversized boyfriend fit makes it perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit and heading to the beach or tucking it into a pair of jean cutoffs. I’ve been wanting to wear it all the time, it looks great with a tan!Screen Shot 2018-07-03 at 1.52.06 PM
  4. Fringe Bottom Jeans – Ok, I know jeans are like the farthest thing from your mind right now but A.) I couldn’t resist this fringe bottomed pair, and B.) jeans are just my thing. Stay tuned for some outfit posts with these once the weather cools down!

Friday Faves #5

It’s been a while since I did my last Friday Faves post, but they’re back and ready to go!
Here’s what’s on my radar this week.

  1. The Bold Type – Have you seen this show? I’m obsessed! Season Two just premiered, so if you’ve never seen it before, hurry up and binge it now! It’s about three friends in their twenties who work for a women’s magazine. It’s equal parts funny dramatic, and inspiring.

2. Star Struck Bangle – I’ve been looking for new bangles that are cute, and durable enough for everyday wear. I’ve been switching back and forth between wearing one at a time and sporting all three. They look great either way and are perfect to mix and match with bracelets you already own!

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 1.10.01 PM

 

3. The Waterbottle/Pretty Accessory- I’m all about a good water bottle. It has to meet certain criteria though; it can’t leak, the mouth opening can’t be too large or I’ll spill all over the place, aesthetically pleasing is an added bonus.  Basically, I wanted a water bottle I can just throw in my bag and not have to worry about it. I just bought this one and it’s even prettier in person. I’m loving this marble version as well.

4. The Bug Bite Thing –  If you are anything like me you are constantly covered in bug bites in the warmer months. I’ve always loved spending time outdoors but instantly regret it every time. I recently discovered The Bug Bite Thing and I have to tell you, it is AHH-MAZING! It literally sucks the insect poison out of the bite and the itching stops instantly! I bought a multi-pack so I can have them all over the place for easy accessibility. My husband is glad he doesn’t have to watch me attacking my legs with the side of a credit card. (gross, I know)

Let’s talk 4th of July

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to my own personal style, I often find myself skipping around town in various remixes of red, white, and blue from Memorial Day through Labor Day. What better time to dig some outfits out of my Instagram archive? The good thing is, you can recreate most of these looks using items you already own!

This is what I wore to a BBQ last 4th of July, and I’m not gonna lie… it’s one of my faves.img_8242

 

Here’s another fave, I’ve worn a few different variations of this switching out my bag and shoes, and sometimes swapping for jeans instead of shorts. If there’s a look you love, why not remix it?

img_8239

I bought this sweatshirt for myself last year and noticed it was available in my daughter’s size this year so you better believe we both have them now.

img_8240

 

I’m pretty sure I’ve owned this Barcelona tank for years and years. I don’t wear it often at all, yet I refuse to get rid of it. It makes an appearance about once a year which is typically not enough for me to keep something but every now an then you just have that piece you can’t part with. For me, it’s this tank.

img_8243

 

So, technically this shirt has black stripes.  ( I think) But, it’s a simple swap to become 4th-Ready. Oh, and I love these shoes.

img_8238

While this one might not be for you, (my husband was quick to point out I looked like a Gondolier) I still stand behind this outfit.

img_8241

Do you have any ‘go-to’ outfit combinations? I’m all about making small swaps with the same items. I’d love to see your pictures of your 4th looks!
