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!

New Year, New Closet?

Illusion Waist Tank // Faux Suede Bomber Jacket// Embroidered Boots

There’s something about a new year that makes you really want to change up your wardrobe. I for one am thinking I want to wear more black this year, I have never really had in my wardrobe and I’m feeling like as a New Yorker it’s a must. Never the less, here are some items that I’ve been eyeing to change up my style in 2017.

Take My Away Wrap Blouse // Navy Velvet Body Suit

These are two styles that I have been wanting in my wardrobe, I can’t get enough of the collar trend or anything velvet.

black-jumpsuit

Black Strapless Jumpsuit – also comes in Navy! This is exactly like a Lovers and Friends one EXCEPT its $59. Perfect date night or going out look!

gray-booties

Gray Booties – Super cute and unique!

Beaded Mini Skirt// Splendid Coated Leggings

Kind of obsessed with embroidered skirts lately, they are such a statement piece for your outfit. These leggings are also super comfortable and “look” like leather without breaking the bank.

Fur and Knit Vest // All Mine Sweater // One Teaspoon Fuzzy Black Sweater

These are a few pieces from Nordstrom that I had wanted to get in 2016, but didn’t purchase, and you know you sometimes just can’t forget about certain clothes you want? The red sweater is a nice length and I love the color.

What items do you want for 2017?

5 Stylish Work Pieces

These days if I’m not thinking about my outfit in advance, I’ll be sure to come into work looking like I rolled out of bed. Having stylish essentials in your wardrobe, that can make you look chic instantly, are perfect for those late mornings.

Here’s 5 pieces that you can mix and match into your own wardrobe and rock with your own personal accessories.

5-work-essentials

  1. Black turtleneck – Jcrew//Cashmere// $228.00//Perfect for tucking into a skirt or pairing with sleek trousers and heels.
  2. Trendy Top – Zara//$29.90//Always a plus if you can incorporate some fun pieces at work – loving the bell sleeves trend lately.
  3. Suede Booties – Steve Madden// $129.00//Very chic while at the same time can look totally professional with a pant suit.
  4. Ripped Jeans – Asos//Miss Selfridge//40 Pounds//There are super comfy and stretchy to keep you happy all day.
  5. Fur Vest – Nordstrom//BB Dakota// $98//A cozy vibe making a very chic/subtle statement.

I do want to make note that I work at a tech company and the dress code is non existent, therefore making ripped jeans appropriate.

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.

Collage 2

Scarf // Cosmetic Case

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