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 🙂  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 🙂
$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 🙂
$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!

Last, but definitely not least, I wanted to make sure to note the true meaning of this holiday. To most of us, Memorial Day is all about the picnics, parties, BBQs, [discounts and sales], etc. However, this day is really meant to commemorate those who died in active military service while protecting our country and our freedoms. Take some time this weekend to think about our fallen (and current) heroes and their families, and be thankful for all of the lives that were sacrificed so we can enjoy the picnics, BBQs and most importantly, each other!

Enjoy the long weekend ❤

Tie Sleeve Off the Shoulder Top

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and have a great start to a new week! One of my current trend obsessions right now is this off-the-shoulder look. I instantly fell in love with this top… it’s trendy AND the tie sleeve detail is SO cute!

Pair it with some white skinnies and booties (or sandals/flats) and you are good to go! I wore this outfit a few weeks ago in Florida and I will definitely be wearing this top alllll summer. The material is really thin and comfy too, so even though it has long sleeves, it will still be wearable in the summer heat! M y favorite part? It’s ONLY $35!

Top: Nordstrom, $35 (also love this one)
Pants: Charlotte Russe, old (similar for $39)
Booties: Vince Camuto (similar only $22!)
Leaf cuff: Lilly Pulitzer, (similar)
Bangles: Bourbon & Boweties
Earrings: Baublebar (comes in 24 other colors)
Sunglasses: Nordstrom, $12

This is one of my favorite outfits I’ve put together in a while because it is SO affordable! I mean, tell me where else you can get cute sunglasses like these for less than $12? And where you will find a quality off-the-shoulder top for $35?

I also LOVE Baublebar accessories (especially their statement earrings). There are so many different style options at affordable prices AND you get points for each dollar you spend that you can use towards future purchases.

IT’S HERE! #NSALE

In case you haven’t heard, today marks the beginning of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. If you don’t know by now, I LOVE a good sale –let’s be honest who doesn’t? However, this year it seems that Nordstrom went above and beyond and slashed prices lower than I have ever seen them before!

I did some browsing (ok, a lot of browsing) and picked out my top 10 favorites (some of which, I have already ordered). Trust me –this was NO easy feat. Most of the items included in this sale are for fall/winter –but it’s never too early to see the new upcoming trends for next season. I stocked up on a lot of basics for my fall wardrobe and most of these pieces you can wear now and transition into the fall.

1BAGThis bag was originally $45. To me, that’s not bad considering I would have probably spent that much on it anyway. With the sale, it’s only $30! It’s the perfect size too and can hold all of my ‘stuff.’ The tassel adds a cute, boho detail. Buy it here.

2GreenDress This dress by Lush was originally $48 and it’s now on sale for $32! It comes in 7 additional colors -all beautiful hues for the fall. Still trying to decide between this olive green and the burgundy, but one things for sure, this dress will look fabulous with a pair of boots! Buy it here.

3scarf

Originally $58, I snagged this scarf by Hinge for only $38. The colors are PERFECT for fall. My favorite thing about this scarf is that it incorporates black with brown. I love my brown boots but hate that I can’t wear them with black skinnies or a black dress… this scarf would tie that look together so I could pull it off. I will definitely be wearing this a lot! Buy it here.

4floraldress
I got this Billabong dress for $36 (down from $55). I am obsessed with Navy and love the feminine floral print! The back crisscrosses but isn’t too low. I can’t wait to wear this with a pair of neutral boots in the fall! The dress also comes in one other color but I wasn’t too crazy about it. Buy it here.

5longcardi

Fall trend alert! There are so many long, oversized sweaters just like this that you can snag from the Anniversary sale. This gem was only $50 and was originally $78. You can also choose from FIVE other colors! I thought about getting it in black as well but I already have one from last year. ALSO, this comes in petite sizes if you want it a few inches shorter. Buy it here.

6flats

I have honestly been looking for a quality pair of black lace up flats for a few months now. I was so excited when I saw these and the price tag! Down from $90, I snatched these up for $60. They are also made by Halogen, so I know the quality is great!  Also available in 3 other colors including a burgundy, which I love! Buy it here.

7vneckblouse
This is a simple 3/4 sleeve top that you could wear with just about anything. Choose from 7 colors including this red, which I love, and an olive green. Heck for only $28 you might as well go ahead and grab more than one color. (Originally $42) Pair it with some denim skinnies and an oversized sweater (see #5) and you’re good to go! Buy it here.

8bootsThis is probably my favorite find from the Anniversary sale. UGG Boots -for $150! Originally $225 these boots are a steal! Because they are UGG I can already tell you with 99% certainty that they are comfortable. They are also water resistance -so not much maintenance and the color is going to match anything in your closet! Buy them here.

9jacket

This Cargo Anorak Jacket by BP is only $44 and was originally $68. This lightweight jacket is a perfect transition piece. Layer over your favorite wardrobe pieces for a casual weekend look. It’s also available in black but right now I am loving this olive color green for fall -it’s literally everywhere! Buy it here.

10crosstop
Last but not least is this casual, strappy, long-sleeve woven blouse. It’s also available in a dark red and navy for only $32 (originally $48). The straps going across the neckline give this top an elegant look. This is something you could wear to work during the day and dress up for a night out. Buy it here.

It was extremely hard to narrow down EVERYTHING on sale to ONLY 10 items so be sure to browse the entire sale here. I would love to hear from some of you on your favorite pieces and what you plan to buy.
