So real talk – I completely overlooked Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty section. I had my sights set on the pieces that go the fastest so it took me a week to really delve into the beauty products and damn, I’ve been missing out. I’m not just saying this – they are seriously the best they’ve ever been… especially if you’re wanting to try a brand or two out for the first time. So I wanted to round up some tried and true favorites of mine in case you were wanting to try something new or stock up on some much loved OGs.
OK, OK… we have been chatting about Fall fashion a little too much for my liking. I am NOT ready to give up swimsuits and breezy dresses and there is nothing but hot weather on the horizon. So why not round up some of my recent vacation looks?
Jeremy and I have gone from one vacation with my side of the family in Daytona to another with his family in Myrtle Beach. And in between the two, I was in Atlanta for the Nordstrom Sale – so basically I have three suitcases I need to unpack before he gets home from the race tonight. But before I do that, I had to share these looks because they’re some of the most colorful I’ve worn. So if you’re a color lover like me, read on and be sure to check out my latest Instagram post for a fun giveaway!
Happy Monday, loves! The past week has been a real whirlwind and with all the technical difficulties that Nordstrom has had, plus the fact that I have been traveling, I am a little behind getting y’all a comprehensive roundup of everything that I bought. Luckily, Public Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only FOUR days a way, so I’m hoping that this will help you prepare!
When it comes to how you’re going to tackle Public Access, I would highly recommend ordering online. I tried ordering online for in-store pickup and my entire order was cancelled. And even on the first day of Early Access, the store had been picked through and Nordstrom Sale Members said that they won’t be receiving restocks, only returned purchases will be sent back to the sales floor. So to be sure you’re getting exactly what you want, shopping online is your best bet! A few of my items arrived recently, so read on for my favorite picks.
This under $20 will be a wardrobe workhorse for me throughout Fall and Winter. Nordstrom releases this tee in a ton of colors every Anniversary Sale. In years past, I have scooped up a white and a black and white striped, but I was pleasantly surprised that it came in a colorful stripe this year. I can’t wait to pair this tee with every skirt, vest, and jacket in my closet!
Calling all brides-to-be! This lace romper is for YOU. It looks and feels so expensive and is the best combination of classy and sassy. Keep in mind that it runs a little short. I am 5’4 and could have worn a size large for some extra length.
J.Crew released this top in white in the Spring and I wore it all season long, so I was beyond excited to see that they included it in black and white stripe. The material is thicker and more substantial that your regular t-shirt, so it feels so expensive and really holds up wear after wear. It comes in three color options, but the black and white will go with everything from leopard to buffalo check.
B.P. CARDIGAN | Sale Price: $31.90 | After Sale: $49.00 | Runs TTS, wearing a size small
If there is one piece in this sale that you will undoubtedly wear all Fall long, it’s this $31 cardigan. It comes in a ton of colors, but cognac is always my favorite Fall shade.
WAFT CAMI | Sale Price: $38.90 | After Sale: $59.00 | Runs TTS, wearing a size small LEITH TIE FRONT SKORT | Sale Price: $43.90 | After Sale: $65.00 | Runs TTS, wearing a size medium
Thanks to the NSale, I was able to get out of my comfort zone and try some trends I wouldn’t otherwise have because of how inexpensive the pieces are. Case in point, this outfit. I found that my closet was really lacking skorts – I mean, they’re so practical! I paired it now with this adorable tank (that comes in three colors), but once Fall rolls around, a cute, cropped sweater will go perfectly!
HALOGEN DRESS | Sale Price: $72.90 | After Sale: $109.00 | Runs large, wearing a size XS
If you work in a professional environment, this darling dress is perfect for you! I am such a sucker for a big bow, I just love how feminine and bold it is against the turquoise, floral dress. It does run quite large. I may have even been able to wear an XXS, but it was a little tight in the shoulders.
