Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom sale

Hi All!

So I know the internet has been spammed with this sale lately, which is pretty annoying, it’s also a lot of the same stuff. But I wanted to share a few of my favorites that I hadn’t seen anyone mention just yet!

This is my first year with a Nordstrom card and I probably bought too much than I should have but I know this will have me set for fall and beyond. I’m moving in September so I really wanted home stuff from the sale and I got some cute buys for cheap!

pom pillow

Eloide Pom Pillow $25.90 per pillow

I ordered two of these pillows for my couch and they are so cute! I saw similar ones in a boutique here in Boston but they were $50 each. Side note, the picture makes them look purple blue but they are a dark gray, I was surprised at first but that is actually a much better fit for my living room and more neutral!

candles

Diptyque Scented Candle Set $55

These are my FAV candles, they really make the whole room smell amazing. I thought these minis would look cute all lined up on a shelf in my room? We will see when I move!

Glasses

Crescendo Chardonnay Glasses $22.90 set of four

I wanted some nice wine glasses because I have had really cheap ones since college and they have gotten cloudy and chipped. This is a great deal on a set for really well made glasses!

 

Chelsea28 Tweed Ruffle Dress $98, ASTR the Label Silk Romper $45, Trouve Lace up Sweatshirt $52

Here are some of the clothing items I got, I included just the ones that I hadn’t seen anyone rave about yet. Now that everything had arrived I can say that I love everything from the sale. Strangely, but in a good way, everything fits me, I followed the reviews and bought up or down a size when people commented that and I think that’s why it all suits me so well. I hope you all get the opportunity to at least pick up a few things from the sale!

Happy Reading!

Tartan Obsession

Collage

Forever 21 Wrap Skirt $17.90 // Missguided Tartan Trousers ($20 Steal) // Forever 21 Tartan Dress $24.90 // Guess Plaid Coat $148.99

One trend I’ve really been waiting to embrace this fall is Tartan and Plaid… for everything. I’ve always seen it in the colder months but lately pieces have come out that I just need to add to my wardrobe.

The great thing about plaid is that it always goes in and out of style, so you can keep you pieces and they’ll come back into style, like how my mom kept this plaid mini skirt she loves in college and her early twenties, and now I’ve discovered it and can’t wait to bring it out this fall!

There are also some great plaid accessories like the always popular Tartan scarf and this really cute plaid makeup bag by Mark and Graham.

I hope you all are loving this trend as much as I am!

All About Fringe

FRINGE, FRINGE, FRINGE!

BB DAKOTA Faux Suede Fringe Skirt // The Perfect April Jacket // Forever 21 Draped Fringe Layer Top //Windsor – Natural Pop and Fringe Dolman Sweater // Topshop – Floral Print Fringe Kimono

I normally don’t go for all the trends, some of them are just too over the top or really don’t fit my personal style but I’ve been seeing fringe everywhere this summer and in new fall clothing and I can’t resist! There are definitely some fringe looks that are a little crazy but some of them are just too cute to pass up. The skirt is probably my favorite, the one above is from Bloomingdales but Forever 21 carries one thats almost identical and way cheaper, so you can rock this trend on any budget! I’m loving the cowl neck fringe shirt, I have it in white and the sweater is a great cozy look to incorporate the trend as well. I also picked up a kimono just like this one and I’m obsessed.

Accesories

Sam Edelman Louie Bootie // Mini Leather Tassel Strand

Fringe is big in accessories too and in a more muted way making it easy to add into your style without going overboard. These Sam Edelman booties have been a bestseller for a few years now and I’m definitely planning on picking them up for fall. The fringe Baublebar necklace comes in lots of colors and I love that the tassels are leather!

Whether its around your neck or draped from your skirt, fringe is a chic, boho trend that needs to be added to every fall fashionista’s wardrobe!

Happy Reading!
