Seeing Spots

Happy Saturday! I am SO thankful that the weekend is finally here – I feel like this week drug on forever. Hopefully you all have some exciting plans… I unfortunately, will be cleaning all weekend ūüė¶

For today’s post, I wanted to feature this gorgeous polka dot dress. I have been seeing spots everywhere lately and this is the perfect way to make a statement this summer! I also love the subtle peek-a-boo detail in the front and the high slit. And what’s even better is that it’s only $35 on sale! I also played up the black and white look with some of my favorite pink Kendra Scott accessories ‚̧

2018 Nordstrom Sale – My Top Picks

Today the Nordstrom Sale (NSale) finally went live to the public! So I wanted to share my top 15 purchases that I made from the sale. I already shared my beauty picks earlier this week, and you can view them here.

Most of the items included in the sale are fall items, which has me super excited for cooler temperatures (as I sit here in the 92 degree heat)! Quick note… a lot of items have unfortunately sold out… I don’t ever remember things selling out this quickly during last year’s sale but I did notice last year that Nordstrom tends to restock items randomly so keep checking back!

I also did my best to choose my top items from ones that are still in stock ‚̧

NSalePicks_Top10

ONE: Long Sleeve Tee – For this long sleeve top, I thought $29 was a steal, but then I saw that it was marked down to only $18 and I couldn’t pass it up. This will be a great basic piece for the fall and it also comes in black! Top fits tight but true to size.
$18.90 (originally $29)

TWO: STS Blue Emma High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans – You can’t really go wrong with a good pair of denim for $39 and these are really great quality. Another perfect basic for fall. I’ve also really started leaning toward higher waist styles and love the fit on these, which is true to size.
$38.90 (originally $59)

THREE: BP. Varsity Stripe Sweater – This is a great casual piece and for only $25, I couldn’t say no! I would pair this with some skinny jeans and black booties for a casual dinner OR dress it down with some black leggings and a pair of casual sneakers. Oversized fit but true to size.
$25.90 (originally $39)

FOUR: Leith Rib Wrap Sweater – I really like the style of this top and the soft, lavender color is gorgeous on! The ribbed detail also gives it a dressier look. Fit is true to size.
$39.90 (originally $59)

FIVE: Zella Madison Tank – Ok, how adorable is the back of this top. I always say that cute workout gear motivates me to work out more often and now I’ll have another reason to! I also purchased this strappy Zella bra with it, but unfortunately it’s sold out. I also like the lower-cut arm holes to keep me cool during this July heat wave! Fit is loose but true to size.
$25.90 (originally $39)

SIX: BP. Stitch Curve Hem Cardigan – I got a lot of basic colored cardigans from last year’s sale, so I went a little bolder with this Pink Cedar color. I love the pockets and the curved detail and is also a great color for fall. I can’t wait to pair this with a white top, some skinnies and my leopard flats for some flare ūüôā¬† I went a size down from my normal size for a tighter and shorter fit in the sleeves.
$31.90 (originally $49)

SEVEN: WAYF Plunging Knot Front Top – I was a little unsure about this top when I initially ordered it, but the fit is super flattering. It’s also great for work with a pair of black slacks, but I could also see me wearing it with some denim cutoffs and platform sandals. Fit is true to size.
$45.90 (originally $69)

EIGHT: Ribbed Body-Con Minidress – This dress was a steal for $30! I was debating between the black or olive color, but ended up going with the black. This is a staple piece for fall. I can see myself dressing it down with a plaid flannel and my Chuck Taylor’s or dressing it up with some patterned pumps for a night out. (I sized down for a tighter fit)
$29.90 (originally $45)

NINE: Leith Tie Front Pant – I purchased these pants because they are unlike anything else I own. Not only do I love the color, but they are work friendly and the high-waist is super slimming, which is always a great bonus! I went with my normal size for these, but the legs are a little long so I will probably need to get them hemmed.
$45.90 (originally $69)

TEN: BP. Plaid Shirt – This is another great basic. I am a sucker for a good flannel and the $32 price tag tempted me to purchase in every color. However, the green just stuck out to me and is gorgeous for fall with some black legging (see Spanx below) and nude boots. Fits true to size. Size up for a bigger/boy fit.
$31.90 (originally $49)

ELEVEN: Chelsea28 Lace Yoke Top: I originally fell in love with the intricate lace detail on this top, but I also like the Rust Cider color, which is perfect for fall! True to size.
$45.90 (originally $69)

TWELVE: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – I’ve always wanted to try a pair of Spanx leggings because I’ve heard such great reviews, but with a $100 price tag, I was reluctant. So imagine how happy I was when I saw these on sale… I can’t wait to try them and hopefully they live up to the hype ūüôā
$64.90 (originally $98)

THIRTEEN: Caslon Aiden Wedge Sneaker – This is the perfect casual sneaker. I got these in black but I almost wish I had gotten them in the Taupe color. Here’s to hoping they come back in stock in my size! Also, how adorable is the perforated detail?!
$79.90 (originally $119.95)

FOURTEEN: Nike Free RN 2018 Running Shoe – I definitely needed a new pair of running shoes (mine are about 3 years old) and I’ve had my eyes on this pair for a while. I love Nike for running shoes specifically and I am obsessed with this “Rose/Gunsmoke” color! (Also comes in a cargo khaki color)
$74.90 (originally $100)

FIFTEEN: Vince Camuto Pevista Bootie – I have found that flat booties are so much more practical than my heeled booties, so I ordered these! I love the moto-inspired detail, which makes this shoe so unique.
$99.90 (originally $149.95)

Would love to hear from all of you what you’re shopping today and what your favorites are?! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and happy shopping!

2018 Nordstrom Sale – Beauty Picks

Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! In case you haven’t heard, early access to Nordstrom’s annual NSale began on Thursday, July 12. The early access is for card holders only, but public access begins on July 20. The sale ends and prices increase on August 6! I think this year is even BETTER than last year and I am so excited to share with you my top beauty picks in today’s post.

If you do not have a card and would like to apply to gain early access, you can do so here. To see everything that’s included in this year’s sale, you can view the look book here.

Also, (side note) a lot of clothing items have already “sold out,” however, Nordstrom holds on to some of that inventory for when the sale goes public and will periodically restock throughout the 3 and a half week sale.

BeautyPicks

ONE: Kiehl’s Jumbo Creme de Corps Bottle with Pump – The BEST lotion ever! I always buy a new one during the Anniversary sale and the jumbo bottle lasts me a full year.
$52 (originally $75)

TWO: Sara Happ The Lip Expert Coconut Set – This two piece lip treatment comes with a coconut scrub to exfoliate your lips and then a Luxe Lip Balm to hydrate! This will leave your lips feeling so smooth!
$32 (originally $46)

THREE: T3 White and Chrome Cura Hair Dryer – I’ve had this hair dryer for about 3 years now and it’s completely worth the investment! I naturally have dry hair and it helps reduce frizz and maintains the shine.
$134 (originally $200)

FOUR: T3 Grey SinglePass Curl 1.25″ Curling Iron – This is definitely on my wishlist. I love T3 products and purchased their interchangeable wand during last year’s sale and I use it all the time. Would love to try their new curling iron!
$107 (originally $160)

FIVE: Skinny Dip Pink + Rose Gold Manicure Set – My mom got me a similar set about 6 years ago for Christmas and I STILL have it. I take it with me everywhere. It can easily fit it in my purse and those scissors come in handy more times than you would think!
$23 (originally $42)

SIX: Charlotte Tilbury Pretty Pink Lipstick Set – This is also on my wishlist. I have heard really great things about Charlotte Tilbury products and this sale is the perfect opportunity to try more expensive products at a lower price!
$60 (originally $90)

SEVEN: Voluspa Maison Blanc Two -Wick Tin Candle Set – I also got a set of these from last year’s sale and I STILL have not burned through all of them (only 1). However, these candles smell amazing and make the best gifts!
$29.50 (originally $48)

EIGHT: Alterna Caviar Set – I’ve heard amazing things about this shampoo and I am so excited to try it and see if it lives up to the hype! Before I order the larger set though, I am doing the trail size to make sure I like it.
$72 (originally 114)

NINE: Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase –¬† I am really excited to get this in the mail. I have always wanted to try these pillowcases and it’s much cheaper than the other pillowcase included in the sale (which is $110)!
$39 (originally $60)

TEN: Nars Undressed Liquid Lip Set II – I love NARS lip brand, they are definitely worth the money and last all day! I feel like the colors in this kit are great everyday basics and I’m excited to try some new ones at a discount ūüôā
$49 (originally $104)

ELEVEN: Impressions Vanity Co. Touch Trifold XL Dimmable LED Makeup Mirror – So I have never actually owned a nice makeup mirror and I am so excited to try this out. I was debating between this one and a smaller version (both included in the sale). If this one is too big than I may just exchange for the smaller one.
$58.90 (originally $89)

Any other beauty favorites you’ve found in the sale that aren’t in my top 11? Leave me a comment -I’d love to try them out! I’ll be following up later this week with some of my favorites from the sale in activewear, clothing and accessories!
