Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post


YAY! Public Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is finally here! Now, until August 4th. There are still plenty of items that are in stock. Below, I'm sharing my recommendations from each category.



My top recommendations to grab before it's out of stock! Pro Tip: Items placed in your cart are not held for you before checking out, If you need to check out one-two items at a time before they sell out, do it. Shipping is free, and you won't pay more for having multiple orders :)

Kids and Baby Top Picks : Nsale 2019

To be honest, there wasn't a huge amount of options this year for baby and kids. However, I found a few really great deals. For example, the convertible car seats that I bought a few years ago during this sale are in the sale this year. I constantly rave about these, and hands down are the best seats. There's a few North Face and Patagonia options that are good deals as well, and this is a great time to buy these items on sale as they rarely get marked down until after/later during the cold season.

Sweaters and Outerwear Top Picks : Nordstrom Anniversary Sale





All of my top picks from the #Nsale for sweaters, and outerwear! 



I highly recommend grabbing my favorite Barefoot Dreams while they are on sale, which is rare. I have the circle cardigan, the cozy chic lite long cardigan, and the island cardigan. All are great choices, but I wear my circle cardigan the most, which is why I ordered a new color this year. 

I also ordered the Alo cropped faux fur jacket pictured above. I'm so excited about it because I missed out on it last year, and it looks AMAZING with leggings, casual outfits, and of course activewear. 

Another item I ordered is the Leith longline cardigan that I purchased in the beige, I ordered in the deep burgundy color and I think it will be gorgeous.

What I purchased From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale



I navigated the Nordstrom Anniversary sale differently this year. Rather than just buying every single item I saw to share here for y'all, and taking hundreds of dressing room pics, I only bought what I truly wanted/needed. Call it "bad for business", as your purchases are a way that I make my living (when you purchase from my links I make a small commission!) but I felt I could share my top picks from each category sufficiently without actually having to purchase everything myself if I didn't personally need it. (Category specific posts will be posted over the next few days!)


After looking through my top picks, you can choose which items YOU need/want. The sale is so much fun (mom and I had a BLAST shopping the sale!), and an event that we all look forward to each year, but it should never be stressful. Honestly, I was feeling really stressed out thinking I needed to purchase huge racks of clothing like I've seen other influencers share on social media, and then on top of it being super pregnant.. it just didn't feel right to me as someone that thrives off authenticity. Instead, I only purchased items I will actually be wearing all season long. 


In today's post, I'm sharing everything I purchased so far. The other items I'm ordering that I didn't see in store will be a separate post later on. I hope this post is helpful, and as always let me know if you ever need anything! Thank you so much for shopping with me, I am continuously
 grateful. 



Basic Fall staples that will sell out quickly

Hats









Designer Denim







Booties 









Sizing: All shoes pictured run TTS







A few styled outfits  




Chambray ruffle dress (TTS) , Longline cardigan (TTS) , Wide brim hat (I have XS) , Booties (Tortilla suede color, TTS)





Lace Cami, $25 (Fit: Slightly smaller & shorter than expected. I have a size small)  Love these cami's for layering! While on sale, I went ahead and purchased the black, white, and leopard colors.




Faux leather moto jacket, $62.90 -  (Fit: TTS, I have the size 4) LOVE the fit and comfort of this jacket. It will sell out quick! I have a similar jacket that y'all always ask me about, but I LOVE this one so much more. Style it with something feminine like this skirt, and of course with denim!





Leopard Midi Skirt, $78 (Fit: TTS, I have xs) This is a favorite! I've been searching for the perfect leopard skirt for my wardrobe, and this one is wonderful. Cute with a baby bump, and something I'll be able to wear all season long with a T-shirt, lace cami, turtleneck, chunky sweater, etc.





Neutral flats - (Fit: TTS) I know I'll wear these with 99% of my outfits. I had originally planned on purchasing these in the chocolate embossed leather style, but this gorgeous neutral color caught my eye and will pair with way more in my wardrobe! 






The Perfect Thermal & Great For Layering, $44


I was so excited to find this thermal! TTS, I took my usual XS.




Spanx faux leather leggings $64.90 , Thermal tunic $44 , Flats $99


THE leopard cardigan! 

SO happy this item is back this year, it's not a brand new style but I missed out on it last year bc it sold out SO fast. It's adorable, soft, just perfect for fall. TTS, I have an XS!












This sweater is the perfect tunic length (I have size small) & crazy soft, and cozy. (Nursing Tip: I plan on wearing a nursing tank underneath so that I can easily lift up and nurse) Sizing: I find this to be TTS, I personally went up one size for added length, if you want a looser fit I would size up, if you don't, take you're usual size.



Barefoot Dreams


I personally only purchased this cardigan. I hadn't seen a style like this with the straight front and pockets, it's the perfect style you can wear out and about, not just at home! Also linking my favorite leopard blanket thats part of the sale, and the other cardigans and pieces I love and own!

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Sneak Peeks and Shopping Guide




What is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? 

Every year, Nordstrom releases brand-new Fall merchandise at discounted prices for a short period of time. After the sale (August 5th prices go up) all items go back to full-price for the remainder of the season. You'll see brands like Tory Burch, Hunter Boots, Barefoot Dreams, Kendra Scott jewelry, Michele watches, Vince, etc. All items are marked down to a generous discount, so this isn't just a "little sale". Thousands and thousands of people wait all year for this event! 



Important Dates

This year, Nordstrom is doing things a bit different in regards to shopping start dates! When you log into your Nordstrom account, you'll find details on which level member you are.

New Clothing I Love For Now and Later in The Fall





Recently, I've been really inspired by pre-fall fashion. It's always this time of year, when it's hot, and all of the cute fall items are releasing that I find myself in a pickle LOL I want it all, but I also can't afford the heat stroke. We live in the south, so maybe some of you have the opportunity to wear jeans right now *gasp* (I'm secretly jealous!!) Anyways, I popped into Nordstrom with mom and the kids not long ago and had a really hard time not buying the entire women's apparel floor. EVERYTHING IS SO CUTE RIGHT NOW! 



Here is my top tip if you want to start purchasing fall inspired pieces that you can wear now, and then later - 


1. Color. Purchase clothing in a Fall inspired color palette. For example, I recently styled this cropped jacket with a leopard dress (see photo below) and now I can wear it with this gorgeous Free People dress. The colors work great together but are also the perfect fall tones. I buy pieces that are essentially interchangeable with each other. 

Another great example is this gorgeous Topshop skirt. It has flattering slits, and it's really lightweight to wear right now in the summer, but will be amazing in the Fall with a sweater! 



Double Slit Pleated Midi Skirt \\ Leopard Sandals (These run a half size small, and need to be broken in about a day and then they are perfect! I wear them all the time!) \\ V-neck Tee \\ Summertime V-Neck Sweater  












This dress is my favorite thing hanging in my closet right now, the design, colors, and pattern make it the perfect transition piece that you can wear now. I really love it print mixed with leopard, but anything you like would work with this! (Style tip: Wear a lace bralette with this dress. You can see the cute lace details peek out the back slit and underarms when you move.)
