Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks (round 2!)

Hello hello!  It’s Friday friends!  But not just any Friday.  It’s the Friday that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially opens to everyone!  WOOT WOOT!  Do we love clothes?  Check.  Do we love Nordstroms?  Check.  Do we love getting new Fall styles on sale for great prices?  Check check.  Alright then!  Let’s proceed.

Without caution. ;)


{Hello Friday sweater/AG jeans/Converse}

If you missed my Nordstrom sale round #1 favorites be sure to check them out here.  The rest of the things I’ve ordered so far came in.  Here are my round #2 favorites!
Knew without a doubt I’d love this Hello Friday Crewneck Sweater.  It’s SO comfy!  Perfect for weekend lounging.  It’s a little on the short side but I love that about it.  Cute with jeans or sweat pants.  I know I’m going to live in this when the weather cools off.
You all know I’m a sucker for graphic tees so I couldn’t let this Zen Again tee pass me by.  Especially for such a great price.
What I especially love about this tee is that it’s fitted a bit at the top and then flares out.  Very flattering.  And comfortable!  I’m going to save it to wear on my kids’ first day back to school.  You know.. when I’m truly feeling Zen Again. ;)

{Crossover Sweater/AG Jeans/Gray Purse/Cobie Block Heel Booties}

This cute Free People Crossover Sweater is one of my favorites from the sale this year!  Such a cute fit and I love the material.  It’s short in front so I put a white tank under it.  I’m sure I’ll have fun finding other ways to layer it in the Fall.  (Still need to get my new jeans hemmed!) :)

This blue color sold out fast, but watch because a lot of times Nordsroms re-stocks things that sold out once the sale opens to everyone.
I loved this sweater so much I bought it in the gray too!  I love putting together outfits layered with the same color in different shades like this light gray sweater with my dark gray purse.  You all know I’m a fan of neutrals!  And gray in general. :)
I also love how long the sleeves are on this sweater.  I want it in black too!  I’ve been wearing my black Peep Toe Booties and seriously love these shoes.  Can’t recommend them enough!  They are so stylish and comfortable and I’m so happy I don’t have to wait for cool weather to wear them.
Here is something I ordered and tried that didn’t work out.  I thought this Plaid Oversize Cotton Flannel Top looked so cute on-line but it has NO shape.  This is an xxs and it’s still huge!  They weren’t kidding when they called it an oversized shirt.
I tried tucking it in but there was too much material to make it look cute.  This was a no go for me!  It might look a lot better on someone taller who has room to tuck it in and make it a bit more fitted.  Love the pattern!  Just not the fit.

{Quilted Vest/Plaid Shirt/Burgandy Jeans/Cobie Booties}

Remember my favorite quilted vest from my round #1 picks?

{Quilted Vest/Similar striped tee/AG jeans/Over the knee boots}

The green came in!  I love it!!  Knew I would. :)
I put this on with my striped tee and thought.. hmm.. this outfit looks familiar.
A lot like this outfit I wore last Fall!  Ha!  You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. ;)  I bought this green vest last year at BR and lived in it!  Totally spaced I already had a green vest.  BUT.  I’m keeping the new one because my original vest is really thin and the Nordsroms vest is thicker and warmer.  So now I have one for ‘San Diego winter days’ and one for ‘visit family in the real cold winter days’.  I’m covered. :)  Btw.. the shoes I’m wearing in this pic are some of my all time favorite booties.  (Bought them at this sale last year!)

They are back again this year with a cute buckle update!  These are the Addison Wedge Booties and I adore them.  And not just because they are named after my daughter.  ;)   They are so cute and go with everything – I lived in them last Fall.  This pair is sitting in my on-line cart right now wanting to come home to me.  BUT.  I already have this shoe in the brown and I already bought a gray bootie this year.  So my ‘practical side’ is trying to convince my ‘throw caution to the wind and buy all the shoes side’ to just say no.

We’ll see which side wins in the end.  I’d tell you but I don’t know the answer yet.

Similar striped tee (love the neck on this!) that’s on sale now.
This Open Front Cardigan is another favorite from the sale.  I was running out of time so I didn’t style it very cute (I definitely won’t wear these dark jeans with it), but I had to share it with you because it’s going to be a Fall staple for sure.  SO comfy!  I know I’ll love wrapping up in it on cool days.  It runs big so order down (wearing an xxs).  I might get it in another color because it’s such a great price and really cute on.  This picture doesn’t do it justice!

Ok.. a few other favorite things on sale that I bought or already own and love!

I ordered this cute scarf and can’t wait to get it!  And this Fringe Infinity scarf looks so similar to my favorite scarf from last Fall.  Cute!

I splurged on a Rebecca Minkoff purse that sold out so quickly!  This purse is similar and another favorite so I’m going to see if I love the one I ordered and if not, order this one.
Remember my cute Sole Society duffle bag from last Fall?

The gray duffle is on sale!  This is a great travel bag I use often.

You all know how I feel about my Zella live-in crop leggings.  Every time they go on sale I stock up because these are my favorites for exercise.  They are half off right now for just $25!

I ordered this pair (Zella Move It Capris) to try.  Love them already.  I didn’t get a picture but I can tell you that I’m wearing them this very minute as I type this post. :)  Great for exercise or just running around or lounging.  Plus they are lightweight and cool for summer heat.  I might not be taking these off for a while.
I stocked up on my secret weapon because the prices are so great and I’ve had my original two pairs forever.  These Spanx power shorts are amazing!  I wear them when I’m wearing a really fitted dress and look slimmer instantly.  They smooth out all of the lumps and bumps we wish we didn’t have.  No trace of giving birth to 3 with these babies on.  ;)  I usually just wear the Power Short Thigh Shaper but also like to have the Higher Power pair for certain dresses.  I don’t wear them all the time, but so nice to have for those special events when you really want to look and feel your best.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my skin care routine and I promise I’ll share it on the blog at some point!  One thing I’ve used for years and swear by is my Mia Clarisonic.  I have this exact one and it’s on sale for a great price right now.  My dermatologist recommended this to me years ago and I wash my face with it every night.  It cleans your skin so well so that any product you use will really sink in and work!  I love how healthy my skin looks and feels after I use it to wash my face.  I actually bought this exact same one last year for my sister for Christmas!  And then she told me she already had one.  (bummer!)
And last but not least I ordered my husband some fun new shoes!  These were my favorites.  The Gold Cup Sneaker and the Soft 7 Sneaker.  Didn’t want him to feel left out of all this shopping.  (You can thank me later babe.)  He will wear these until they have holes in them and are falling apart I’m sure.  Or until I toss them and order him some new ones.  Can’t say that hasn’t happened a time or two.


This sale is such a good one.  I hear Rocky music playing in the background every time I hop on-line. ;)  Happy shopping friends!  Enjoy your weekend and may the force be with you.

Summary of my favorites are below!   (Affiliate links used)

  1. The Zella leggings – do they actually run small like the site says? I usually wear a 4-6, think i should get a medium?

  2. Wow, you got some great items! Too bad about the one plaid shirt, but if that’s the worst fit you had in all that you bought, you are pretty darn awesome at online shopping! And knowing what would fit your shape. Cute booties and cute bags. You scored big time! Well done! Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you Jeanne! I agree. It was a good on-line shopping spree with only one top not working! :) Enjoy your weekend too cutie. xo

  3. Awesome finds Erin! I too like the Addison wedge. Your oversized plaid shirt is cute, you said there was too much to tuck in, have you tried just tucking the front in and leaving the back out? Great finds 👍 I too have enjoyed shopping. It feels like it’s my back to school shopping spree…. 😉

    1. Thanks Amy! Yeah.. I tried that.. it was just too much material to even tuck in the front and still had no shape. I think if I was a little taller it would have looked better. :) Isn’t this sale fun? Back to school for everyone. :) Happy shopping cutie! xo

  4. Well one thing’s for dang sure Erin, you are WAY cuter than any Nordstrom model! They need to hire you!
