NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE PICKS - 2018

Friday, July 13, 2018

It's like Christmas y'all! Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is their biggest sale of the year and it's not one to be missed. There are so many goodies from every category: clothing, shoes, accessories, home decor, beauty, and more! Early access is happening now for cardholders, and the sale opens to the public on July 20th. If you have a Nordstrom Card, I suggest getting in on the deals now so things don't sell out! The popular items do tend to get re-stocked, but better to be safe if you see something you love! My favorite things to stock up on during this sale are cozy sweaters, shoes, and any basics that I know I'll wear over and over again, that I might not normally splurge on.

I woke up early yesterday morning to get an order in, so although I don't have photos of me wearing these pieces, or reviews (for now) I figured it was best to share my picks sooner rather than later. I will update on sizing, etc. once my order arrives! I did pick up/try on a few pieces in store yesterday so those reviews are below.

Okay... Ready - GO!

WHAT I BOUGHT

LEITH Midi Coat - in Tan Dale
$59.90 ($89 after sale)

You just can't go wrong with an oversized camel coat! I obvs love the color of this, but I love how it's just the right mix between casual and dressy - it can go either way! I ordered an XS so it wasn't too too baggy - hopefully it fits well!


$76.90 ($116 after sale)

I missed out on this cardigan last year and kicked myself for not ordering it. They literally are the softest cardigans EVER and I can't wait to wrap myself up in this all Fall and Winter long. I would wear it just as shown - long tee underneath with leggings and probably sneakers or OTK boots to dress it up a little bit. I ordered an XS/S.

$48.90 ($74 after sale)

Like I said, I love stocking up on cardigans because they're my favorite thing to throw on in the cooler months. I basically live in these things all year long, especially at the office when the AC is blasting! I love the knit of this one and the collar detail - very flattering (hopefully). I ordered a size small in this so that I could layer long-sleeve tops underneath - Will report back once this one comes in the mail!

$45 (Sold out - as of 7/14)

Another one that's sold out already! In clouding it because I'd be willing to bet this comes back. It's SO soft and a great length. The waffle knit is super cute and adds a little bit of texture to your outfit. Keep your eyes out online or at your store for this one - it's a goodie.

$45.90 - Sold Out (as of 7/13)

Bummer guys! This one is already sold out :( I loved the neutral color of this sweater and the cute cross-back detail. I'm including it anyways in case it gets restocked or you find one at your local store.

$25.90 ($39 after sale)

I picked this up in store and I think it'll rotate in just nicely this fall. This color is sold out but there a still sizes in a few other colors. It's just a good relaxed fit lightweight sweater. It tucks well and the neckline is really flattering. I got an XS because it runs a little big.

$18.90 ($29.00 after sale)

I'm really digging crop tops lately (paired with the right bottoms), and I liked that this one had long sleeves! I picked this up in store last night and sized up to a Medium so that it wasn't too tight. Just a good basic to have in your closet!

Relaxed Tank - in Black
$18.90 ($29 after sale)

This is a great basic tank that can be worn tucked in, front tucked or left alone - it's a little on the shorter side, without being a crop top, so it works well with most rises of pants. It's also really soft! It runs decently big so I got an XS in this, but if they had it, I might have gotten an XXS.

LEITH Tie Front Pant - in Tan Dale
$45.90 ($69 after sale)

Another paper bag pant that I just couldn't pass up. I sized down in these because the legs are pretty "paper-baggy" ;) So I got an XXS and they fit great! I obviously love the color, but the tie waist and pant length are very flattering.

$49.90 ($69 after sale)

I ordered this dress in an XS because I didn't want it to be too oversized. I love the front hemline and the knot detail, and how it looks with the sleeves rolled up, #sochic. I actually tried this one on in store last night and I'll be honest - I'm not sure I'll keep it. It's just a little bit of a weird length on me, but I'm hoping I might feel differently when I try it on with shoes that I'd actually wear it with. It really is super cute, so I'll report back if I end up keeping it!

$42.90 ($64.95 after sale)

I'm veryy into midi dresses right now, but they have to be the right length. I'm hoping this one hits me at a good spot because I love it online! It's a really cute, subtle floral pattern and I love the tie waist. I ordered a small so that it was a little baggier, but I could still cinch it in. If it is the right length on me, I'm totally pairing it with my favorite black Marc Fisher booties!

BP. Ruffled Floral Print Jumpsuit - in Black Camilla Spaced Floral
$42.90 ($65 after sale)

I really hope this jumpsuit fits because it's SO CUTE! I'm really into culottes so I love the pant length of these, and the little ruffle detail at the top. I would pair with booties and a denim jacket if needed, but this could totally be dressed up or down. I ordered an XS so hopefully it works!

Steve Madden Petra Open Side Bootie - in White Snake Print
$79.90 ($119.95 after sale)

I just can't pass up a pointed toe bootie guys, I just can't. I've been looking for a good pair of white booties and I'm hoping these are the ones! I ordered my normal size - 7.5 so I'll report back on the level of awesomeness when these come in.

$65.90 ($98.95 after sale)

I wear my leather Soludos smoking slippers ALL THE TIME, so when I saw these ones I knew I had to get them. I'm hoping they're more of a tan color, rather than a blush as the color states, but either way, I know they'll get lots of love! I sized up a whole size in these as they run small - I'm normally a 7 in flats, but I order an 8 in these and they fit perfectly.


HAPPY SHOPPING LOVES!! Let me know what you guys get :)


SUMMER GOODIES // SHEIN

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Ready for another round of SHEIN goodness? I am! SHEIN is one of my favorite affordable fashion spots - they seriously have amazing finds at awesome prices... and you guys know I love a good deal! I picked out a few things to rotate into my summer wardrobe, so keep reading to see what I got!

It's been HOT in here, y'all - like in the 90s hot... so the less clothing I can wear without just being in my bikini, is ideal. These leopard print shorts are so light and comfy - they're perfect for these scorchers. They sit higher on the waist (not super high) so they're still cute with a crop top - or knotted tank/tee. I went casual with this one - my favorite GiGi Pip straw hat and black leather smoking slippers from Soludos were perfect pairings.




HAT // GiGi Pip
TANK // Old Navy
BAG // Amazon 
SHORTS // SheIn
SHOES // Soludos



Is there anything easier than throwing on a dress when it's hot out but you still want to look put-together? I think not. I love a good summer dress and this one doesn't disappoint! I love the stripes, the length (I'm 5'7" for reference) and the bow in the back - super cute. My only negative to this dress is that the straps aren't adjustable (which was okay for me - it ended up fitting great) and the elastic in the back is kind of loose - it lays flat, but it lays a little lower on me than it might be on others. Still a great summer piece, and perfect for a casual night out with friends or your S.O.

I loveee me a good paper-bag pant. Seriously - I could live in them. I'll be honest... these fit way better than I was expecting them to. I have larger calves and a really small waist, so a lot of tapered pants (on me) are either too tight at the bottoms, too big around the waistband, or both. These fit perfectly - just the right amount of bagginess. And again, love the stripes (and the fact that they're black and white!). I paired these with a crop top and some ankle strap heels to show you guys how easily they can go from the office to a night out - and they're really lightweight so they are perfect for the warmer months!

PANTS // SheIn

That's it for this round of cute bargain finds - Happy shopping (and styling!) loves :)
