Not much progress on unpacking and laundry today, but I did hit the Nordstrom sale and we have groceries! Life is all about priorities. ;) I’m going to post outfit pics soon but wanted to share my top picks in each category first. These are the items I either already have and love OR items on my wish list I wanted to try on this year. One thing worth mentioning about the N sale this year – the stores don’t have certain brands/items in stock and there is A LOT more on-line. I noticed this in my store and have heard that’s the case everywhere else too. Usually I can find most of my wish list in the store but not this year. Clearly I still did some damage (ha) but I ended up getting a few cute things and then items for my family/gifts in the store and then I came home and ordered the rest of the items I wanted on-line. Just a heads up if you are used to getting most items at your store! You might have better luck shopping from home. In your sweats. Eating popcorn.
I didn’t say it was necessarily bad news. :)
I always hit shoes first with this sale and I did find some cute shoes in my store! Below are favorites and what I came home with.
I pretty much had these shoes picked out before I went but two pairs surprised me. The pink running shoes (honestly the most comfortable shoes EVER.. I feel like I’m walking on a cloud in them!) and the heidi over the knee boots. Hands down my favorite boots this year! They are so comfortable and stylish and can be dressed up or down. I couldn’t decided between the brown or black so I came home with both thinking I’ll try things on and figure out which color I’ll wear more. They are SO cute.
I always splurge on a pair of Ugg slippers to live in all winter and these are both so comfortable. The cozette slippers I bought last year and I have lived in them this spring/summer. Both of these have thick soles which I love for slippers!
So many cute hand bags this year!
It took great restraint to just come home with two! Tory Burch is always my favorite and I know this large tote and small crossbody will become long time staples. The black crossbody I bought last year at the N sale and it has been one of my most used purses! Both of these smaller purses are perfect for dinner with friends/date night.
There are also some really cute back packs this year too! My girls and I have been using backpack purses more and more. They are especially great for travel.
Activewear! Probably my favorite category after loungewear. :) I have most of the items above and would totally recommend them all! Some of the cute matching sets on the bottom row are heading my way so I’ll let you know what I think of them. The Zella live in joggers (#11) are so good and will definitely sell out quickly at such a low price! Long time favorites. :)
Lots of cute sweaters this year! Most I had to order but I will tell you that #7 is SO GOOD. Madewell of course! Not predictable at all over here. ;)
So many cute tops so I divided my favorites up in long sleeved and short sleeved below!
There is also a great selection of coats this year! Makes me wish I lived somewhere cold. Just long enough to wear a cute coat. :)
Loungewear. It will always have my heart! Kenny’s last words when I’m shopping the N sale are always “just don’t buy more pajamas..” Right. Sure thing babe! How about you stop watching baseball. The day that happens I’ll stop buying pajamas.
We all have our unique forms of therapy. ;)
Lots of cute dresses this year too! Only one of the dresses above was in my store so I’m patiently waiting on a few of these!
Favorites for hair but no surprises! You all know how I feel about T3 hair tools. I bought mine years ago at this sale and they are still in great shape! So cute in pink. :)
This year I was thrilled to see the Olaplex set in the sale! I’m so excited to try the shampoo/conditioner. I have a feeling this set will sell out quick because it’s so popular. I also came home with this mascara set and I always pick up new Bobbi Brown eyeshadow (it’s my favorite). Other makeup/beauty favorites are below!
So many fun things this year! I hope this post helps narrow things down. I know it’s overwhelming with so many items on sale. Everyone has different favorites and a lot of the above items are my tried and trues! I’ll be back with some fun outfit pics and then we’ll chat decor and organization. I have a few fun things I’m working on this summer and I need to wrap them up before it’s time for back to school and all things Fall. Summer goes by so quickly doesn’t it!? I hope you’re enjoying yours. :)
