Tag Archives: nordstrom anniversary sale

Most of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases have arrived and as the sale opens up to everyone tomorrow this was perfect timing to share! I also ordered a few regular sale items that arrived too.

Favorite purchase – these fringe booties!! Obsessed. They will look great with jeans, dresses, dressed up or dressed down. I’m also loving these tunic sweaters, keeping both the red and grey. I will wear these with a tunic cami underneath, was just too lazy to pull out. Also, these jeans are my new favorite brand called Articles of Society. Get yourself a similar pair on sale! I’m wearing a small in the sweater, and 8.5 in the booties, and a 27 in the jeans – all true to size.

Booties here, Sweaters here, Similar Jeans here



Another favorite find was this dress. It is a little bit more than I would usually spend on a dress but the cut, comfort, and color make it worth it. I went with the navy that is light enough to work well with black tights, and the ponte fabric make it easy to wear but the structure and seaming keeps it flattering. I’m wearing a size 6 in the dress.

I love this tunic dress in theory but the cut was wrong for me, too boxy. If you are less busty and love a shift dress, then this is a good option for you. Wearing a small.

Tunic here



This dress is also going back. I loved the cut and color but it has no stretch and it was too small in the bust for me. A size up would be too big in the hip area, I’m wearing a 6.

I’m heading to Ireland and Scotland for a week in October so also had that in mind when shopping. I wanted a cute backpack for my trip and this one is perfect for less than $30! It will fit my camera and all my essentials. Wearing my around the house lounge outfit here that obviously includes my Lularoe leggings because they are the most comfortable thing I own.

I also wanted to get this tunic blouse for my trip as I think it will be easy to transition from day to night. And it was also less than $30! Wearing a small.

Blouse here



I originally bought this dress at full price but couldn’t really justify it at that cost. So when I saw it went on sale I decided to snag it! I love the color and the fit. Wearing a small.

I have a few more things still on the way so will add once those get in!

Put  this outfit together to run errands and meet Michael for dinner. I used to be scared to pair black with yellow to avoid the “bumble bee” effect, but I really like the combo now when done right – I think adding a print helps make it work.

Don’t forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to all today – check out my picks!

Skirt – Loft via Ebay (similar), Blouse – Old Navy (similar), Shoes – Ivanka Trump (similar), Bag – Michael Kors (similar)

Well summer has barely arrived here in Seattle (and it’s arrival is still questionable…) but Michael and I hit the Nordstrom Anniversary sale to pick up a few fall items anyways because the deals are just too good to pass up! And I will be happy to pull out some new items when fall does arrive.

So here is what I picked up this time around

I was happy to find this gorgeous knit jacket on sale for $64.90 instead of $98 – I think this will be a fall staple.


Halogen® Stripe Peplum Sweater Jacket

I have been dying to pick up a mustard yellow cardigan for the fall and found the perfect one! Unfortunately, they seem to be out of mustard, but they have a lot of other gorgeous colors still available. See here for all. This happens to be a merino wool blend, which would normally bother my skin, but this one is so soft and I didn’t even notice. On sale for $52.90 instead of $79

Halogen® Merino Wool V-Neck Cardigan

And my absolute favorite purchase of all, this gorgeous leather pencil skirt – classic with a twist! I almost can’t wait for fall to come to wear it (almost, I’m still just hoping for 70 degrees around here). On sale for $149 instead of $228 (good discount!)

Halogen® Leather Pencil Skirt

Ok, this is in close competition with leather skirt for favorite, I adore this navy blue trench and will probably be wearing it all the time! I love ruffles…  On sale for $109.90 instead of $168

Tahari Ruffle Trim Satin Trench

And of course a cozy sweater is needed – I got this in purple, looks like it is only left in grey and black, but I love the deep cowl neck. On sale for $45.90 instead of $69.

Halogen® Cowl Neck Sweater

I managed to find only one pair of shoes this year but I think they will get a lot of use, I love wedges! And you can’t beat the price. I think I might need them in black too… On sale for $59.90 instead of $84.95


Nine West 'Shana' Wedge

Now a few things I would pick with an unlimited budget…

Love the print on this, would look great with boots

Laundry by Shelli Segal Print Chiffon Dress

I tried this silk blouse on and fell in love, but went with the leather skirt instead…

Joie 'Marlo' Silk Blouse

Um, I may have to go back for this

Caslon® Open Stitch Sweater
