All of my fashion loving friends! It’s that time! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here! To those of you who come here for just the home decor/organization I have fun things in store! But we have to pause and talk all things clothes during the Nord sale. It’s the law and I’ve always been a law abiding citizen. ;) I have to say that I love this sale more every year. It just keeps getting better! Last year I bought so many cute things that I lived in all Fall/Winter and are still favorites so I was excited to see this year’s inventory. It did not disappoint! If you have a Nordstrom card you can start shopping today! If not I hope this post gives you some fun ideas for when the sale opens to everyone on July 20th!
I ate a power breakfast this morning (could hear Rocky music playing in the background) and then hit the mall!

I came home hours later exhausted (the best kind of exhausted!) with 5 full bags and some CUTE things for me and my family for back to school, the rest of summer, Fall, Winter.. and into the future! As we all know, this sale is a marathon, not a sprint, so I’ll share a lot of what I got in this post and then more things I’m loving and what I got for the rest of my crew later on! (Sidenote: my all time favorite black Flashback Adidas sneakers that I’ve been living in are back in stock and on sale! Pictured above by the bags because I wore them today.) :)
These were my favorite shoes this year! Every pair is so fun and stylish and COMFORTABLE and a great price! I loved some of the tall boots too (like this pair, this pair and I really love this pair.. and how cute are these for rain/snow!?) but I bought so many tall boots last year I just didn’t need another pair. #practicalwon
These Aiden Wedge sneakers are so comfortable! And I love how they are such a perfect mix of cleaned up but casual. Had to get them in two colors! I know I’m going to live in them!
So excited about these! It’s hard to not be happy when you’re wearing cute shoes. :)
I was especially falling hard for all of the cute pink shoes this year!
And it was hard to resist these cute black Hunters for such a great price! But since we had rain about twice last year and I already have a grey pair I decided I’d wait on these.
Full fitting room full of clothes! This post is full of bad lighting and dressing room selfies so please excuse the photography! Things sell out fast so time is of the essence! Let’s do this. :)
One of my favorite finds this year is this Halogen Cashmere Button Sleeve Sweater. It’s crazy soft and such a nice fit!
I loved it so much I got it in the Burgundy and Pink. Wearing the pink here with these Mother Frayed Ankle Skinny Jeans. They are a little long on me (supposed to be cropped.. ha!) but I love the pink lines down the side and they fit so cute. I’ve heard great things about Mother Jeans and am excited to try them! Very flattering fit!
This Halogen Pleat Detail Midi Skirt I had circled in the catalog and was thrilled that it fit well. Love it so much! I can’t wait to try different tops with it. (Wearing a 2 regular but might order it in the petite to try because of the length.)
This Scallop Trim Sweater is darling, a great price and comes in so many fun colors! I bought a scallop sweater at this sale last year and about wore it out! Fall/Winter staple. :) Btw.. my favorite AG Raw Hem Ankle jeans that I’m wearing here (and pretty much wear every day!) are also on sale!
I loved this Cinched Waist Sweatshirt the second I put it on! Really comfortable and flattering because of how it tucks in at the waist. I love clothes like this that look cute but feel like you’re wearing your favorite sweats! (It runs big so get one size smaller.. this is an xxs).
This Stripe Rib Puff Sleeve Top is darling! Comes in other color patterns. It’s pretty fitted so I went up a size to a small.
This Treasure and Bond Baseball Tee is a staple that can be worn so many ways with so many different things. Love it with this cute AG Legging Ankle Ripped Skinny Jeans! Again they look like full length jeans on me instead of ankle jeans I’m so short.. I just roll with it. :)
Ok.. so excited about this Vince Camuto Denim Jacket! So cute! It runs big so order one size smaller than you usually wear (I’m wearing the xx-small). It’s a little jean overkill with these pants, but will look so cute with colored jeans, joggers, skirts. Everything!
This Twill Utility Skirt is so comfy and casual and fun for Fall but I’m going to start wearing it now! Also comes in camo (wanting that one too!) and a grey. I’m wearing a 2 petite and it’s still past my knees (it’s long so get petite if you’re short!).
All the love for camo. It will forever be a favorite so I couldn’t pass up this Thermal Henley Top for just $24!
Comes in other colors too! I didn’t come home with this color because it washed me out, but such a comfy top.
Give me all the Sporty Stripes! Love this Treasure and Bond sweater! And it comes in grey and white too. Trying hard to resist getting another one!
This BP Balloon Sleeve Sweater fits so cute! It makes me excited for cooler weather.
This Puff Sleeve Silk A-Line Dress was my splurge of the day! I actually didn’t look at the price tag when I brought it into the room to try on or I probably would have put it back, but once I had tried it on I had to have it! Such a great fit and the pattern is darling! This picture (and bad lighting) don’t do it justice.
K.. this looks huge on me because the top isn’t my size (ordering it!) but I was surprised at how much I liked this! It’s a really casual Cotton Blend Midi Skirt and matching Boat Neck Top and I’m thinking it would be so cute with sneakers! I need to try my size in the top and see if I want to keep it or just keep the skirt.
This outfit is totally out of my comfort zone because I rarely wear red and it’s so dressy (I always gravitate towards casual!) but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fit/style of this Belted Red Skirt! At first I was wishing it came in other colors, but then I decided it’s good for me to have a variety of colors in my wardrobe (and break out of my rut!) so I was daring and bought it. Plus the coordinating Halogen Ribbon Top makes me feel like such an important executive.. ha! I just need a pencil in my hair and some really important clients to manage. For now my three kids will have to do. ;) (Was wearing the xs petite top in this picture but bought the regular xs because the sleeves were a bit short.)
I have a feeling this Rebecca Minkoff Floral Dress is going to sell out fast. SO cute. I couldn’t believe how many cute dresses were on sale this year!
And of course, I couldn’t stray too far from my norm. Hello new Make and Model pj’s on sale! Happy day! I loved this fun blue star pair but the stars are embroireded on and you can feel them! So not as comfortable and I had to pass. Too bad because they are so cute! But comfort reins supreme with pjs.
Which is why I came home with this cute pair! Oh my word.. are they not just adorable!? And so flattering and comfy! And cute enough to wear out and about and pretend they aren’t pjs! I have to hide them from Kenny because if he sees that I’ve bought one more pair of Make and Model pjs…
(If you didn’t buy a Barefoot Dreams Cardigan last year I would HIGHLY recommend getting one while it’s on sale! The most comfortable cardigan you’ll own! I wore it every single day last winter just working in my house. Perfect to throw over pj’s when you’re cold or dress up and wear with jeans. LOVE this.)
Ok.. signing off friends! And we haven’t even discussed Handbags, Beauty or Home Decor on sale! More to share from this beloved sale but it will have to wait! Seeing my cute Make and Model pjs has made me tired and ready to put them on and go to bed. :) Happy shopping!
