I love Nordstrom. And I love a good sale. So the Anniversary Sale is always the perfect time for me to jump online and :

A) stock up on some basics and

B) add some new fun pieces to my wardrobe and for the home.

I never go too crazy on the sale, though; I do take my time scrolling. selecting, and thinking if I need it and if I truly love it. I really spend a lot of time (maybe too much time!) editing and curating my Nordstrom shopping cart. Because there is absolutely no point in taking advantage of a sale if you’re just going buy for the sake of buying something because it’s on sale. You know?? It just then becomes an accumulation of stuff.

OK jumping off my soapbox now LOL.

But it is still so fun to shop and treat yourself to a little refresh, right?

SO. Here’s what I’m purchasing from the sale PLUS the items that I already own and love that YOU can pick up for yourself, too. There’s items like boots, sweaters, and PJs; my beauty musts; and awesome additions for home. I think it’s often overlooked that Nordstrom has some great items for the home like throws, candles, bedding and decor!

Ruffle tee – you know I live in these! Comes in tons of colors

Spanx faux leather leggings – I bought these during the last Anniversary Sale and love them

Hanky Panky low rise thongs – the only ones I wear

Nordstrom CZ studs – just a classic

Adidas pink sneakers – these are the closest I have found to the pink APLs I wear. I personally think pink is almost a neutral

Rails button up shirt – I’m a new fan of Rails shirts and here’s a pretty one in pink!

Barefoot Dreams cardigan – a cocoon cardigan like this is so useful when you just want to throw something on for an errand or lounging on the weekend or on relaxing chilly vacation.

BP balloon sleeve sweater – love a good slouchy sweater

Leith tie front pants – the color and shape of these are amazing I feel like they’d be so versatile

Madewell high waist skinny jeans – I have one pair of Madewell high waist skinnies and they like HOLD YOU IN. I’ve been eyeing these for a while so adding them to my cart!

Lucky Brand wedge bootie – I’m usually not a bootie person BUT these are wedge booties which seem to be “the shape of the season” and I think it helps to elongate the legs more (which is why I don’t usually like low booties)

Steve Madden wedge sneakers – same reason as above, just in a sneaker

Steve Madden over knee stretch boot – I live in AZ and therefore don’t have a ton of boots; feel like I need to finally add some knee high ones to my lineup and will start with these. The price is amazing.

Halogen slingback flats – another shape for this season is slingbacks. Can’t decide if I’ll go with this floral pattern or a neutral black or nude. Or all of them??

Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb duo – this is one of my daily fragrances.

T3 blowdryer – I have the white and rose gold one. This is SUCH a worthwhile purchase. I even travel with my full-size one because I seriously can’t live without it. Cuts drying time in half.

Hourglass blush palette – I feel like this might be the best value out of everything here. I have the single color blush because it’s one of the only blushes approved by my esthetician @emmediane to be acne-safe. But this one has THREE GORG COLORS. Omg.

Sigma kabuki brushes – almost all my makeup brushes are by Sigma including these kabuki brushes. Lasts forever.

A couple of years ago, I made a vow to myself to start wearing matching PJ sets to bed. And I’ve never looked back. Not only do they look cute and put together (not to mention just as comfy and mismatched tees and sweats) Click above pics for some of my favorites on sale, plus some new ones I’ll be adding to my lineup (like RAILS PJ’S!!)

Jo Malone Travel Candle Set – I love Jo Malone and I love traveling with scented candles. Makes any hotel room even better!

Oversized Tassel Throw – looks just like two of the ones I have in our home

Capri Blue Volcano Candle – in the prettiest mint color!!

Pom Pom Storage Baskets – Pehr makes great baskets and these are ADORABLE. You can use them in kids rooms for toys, guest rooms for throws, and in a guest bath or cabana type situation for towels.

Barefoot Dreams Blanket – I like that this is a little different than the leopard one that’s gotten really popular. Navy, comfy, has tassels. Done!

Travel Diffuser – I get my diffusers from Amazon but I love how these look!

Diptique Votive Set – these make GREAT Christmas gifts, whether you give as the whole set, or use each individual as stocking stuffers! I’m buying several sets of these to keep on hand.

Compagnie De Provence hand soap – I’m a sicker for a good hand soap. I only will use ones that look good on the counter! These make great gifts that anyone would love.

Le Creuset Baking Dishes – I have a bunch of Le Creuset and love every piece. Can’t go wrong with new baking dishes.

All Clad Stainless Steel Pot – when we moved into our new home, I wanted all new pots and pans to replace our variety we collected over the years and got All Clad sets. I LOVE them. A big pot is an essential.

Le Creuset Soup Pot – a soup pot is PERFECT for fall!

Wood and Marble Serving Tray – you can actually use these or just display them layered (like I do!)

 

Enjoy your #nsale shopping!
