My Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Picks

Hi all! I’ve seen a lot of Nordstom Anniversary posts for the past few weeks. I actually got sick of seeing post about what I “had to get” so I told myself once the sale opened to everyone (August 19-August 30) I would do a short post with just a few items that I wanted to get. I tried to find items from different price ranges that I thought were good prices AND most importantly were things I’d been wanting or needing to purchase.

Zella Live in Jogger Pants. I have bought Zella leggings in the past and have been really happy with the quality of them. I’m excited to give these a try and they are under $50.00!

The North Face ThermoBall Eco Hooded Parka. I have been eyeing this parka for a while now and I was happy to see it at this price! I’m getting the asphalt grey matte color, but there are 3 other colors to choose from.

Eliza J. Floral Printed Halter Dress. I think this navy, floral printed dress is so pretty and feminine. I like the halter style and the length is great too. Now I just need somewhere to where it!

Kut from the Kloth Button Fly Ankle Skinny Jeans. This brand of jeans is my favorite! I like the way they fit and they have so many different styles to choose from. I usually gravitate towards dark denim so I think this lighter wash will be a nice addition to my wardrobe.

Tory Burch Carson Top Handle Leather Hobo Bag. This is a beautiful bag with a zip top (which I prefer) and the pretty brown color with gold details is just amazing. (It comes in black too.)

Lancôme Hypnose Drama Bigger & Bolder Lash Kit. This kit comes with 2 full sized Hypnose mascaras, a full sized lash primer and a travel eye makeup remover for under $60.00. A great buy that my daughter and I both will benefit from:)

Okay, that’s it…nothing crazy I just picked a few items this year. In years past I felt like some of the things I bought were just because I kept seeing them everywhere, but this year I tried to be smarter in my purchases:)

I hope you all have a great day and I’d love to know what you purchased from the sale-let me know in the comments!

My top jean picks

I admit I really love jeans. I think they are a great closet staple that can be worn year round. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite jeans from some of my favorite brands and a few new brands I’m giving a try too! For reference I’m 5’5 and sometimes jeans run long on me. I sometimes refer to the brands measurements and occasionally choose the “short” length instead of the “regular” length.

Kut from the Kloth. This has quickly become a brand that I lean towards when I’m purchasing jeans. (I actually just recently realized they carry really cute jackets & tops too!). Their jeans come in a variety of styles.  They are a good quality jeans, wash well and are very reasonably priced.

Catherine Ripped Boyfriend Jean    Small rips and well-placed fading give trend-right edge to curve-flattering boyfriend jeans designed to wear rolled to show off the ankle.

Diana Stretch Skinny Jeans   A saturated indigo wash aged with subtle fading and whiskering enhances the lean and leggy look of skinny jeans cut from stretch denim. These are one of my top favorite jeans that I own.  The fit really nice to my curves.  I have these in both regular and short length.

Connie Frayed Ankle Skinny   Frayed, angled hems highlight your footwear in wardrobe-staple skinnies cut from stretch denim in a sophisticated indigo wash.  These are great for a edgie look, but with a great comfortable fit too!

 

STS Blue.  This brand is a newer one for me.  I was looking for a pair of lighter colored frayed hem jeans, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the.  I found exactly what I was looking for.  These jeans are comfortable,  fit true to size and are at a really good price point.

Emma Ankle Skinny   Frayed hems and a faded wash enhance the easygoing vibe of skinny jeans that’ll make their way into everyday rotation.

Ellie High Rise Skinny Jeans    Classic black skinnies in a flattering high-waist silhouette are woven with stretch for a slim, comfortable fit.  Great high waist and perfect for date night!

 

Universal Thread   Target did it again with this brand!  I have been happy with just about all of my clothing purchases from this brand and the price is perfect! The fit is sometimes a little off so be sure to try them on just to be safe!

High-Rise Skinny Jeans   These dark rinse-wash skinny jeans have been engineered with the perfect fabric weight to smooth and sculpt your figure for an ultra-flattering look. These ran long to me so I purchased them in the short length.

I’m wanting to try another brand soon to see how they compare to the brands I already have.  I like to stay under $100 for my denim because I like to try different brands and styles.  All that I’ve shared are perfect if your the same way too.  Let me know if you have a brand that you love!

Have a great day!
