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!

Luxury for Less

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of high end classics and trends copied at a much more affordable price. I thought I’d gather them all together so we can all share in the trends.

Gucci Loafers: Princetown Slipper  ($595)

Steven by Steve Madden: Slip on Flats ($89)

I love the look of these slip on loafers but I definitely can’t spend five hundred plus on them! The velvet is gorgeous on these Steven ones.

For Love and Lemons Dress: Midi Dress ($119) Lace Dress  ($80) Vivian Mini Dress ($268)

Forever 21 Dresses: Mesh Lace Dress ($24.90) Eyelash Lace Set ($24.90) Floral Lace Bodycon (34.90)

The For Love and Lemons dresses are super popular right now and so is the mesh and lace trend. Thankfully you can find it for much cheaper at a variety of stores.

Stuart Weitzman: Highland Boots ($798) // Steve Madden Over the Knee Boots: Emotions ($100!)

Chloe Bag:Marcie Mini ($795) // Forever 21 Bag: Tassel Crossbody ($22.90)

 Payless booties:Buckle Boot ($29.99) // Givenchy Boots ($1,395)

I have always loved those Givenchy booties but I almost love the Payless ones more! It’s a great way to do the trend in an understated way.

Burberry Trench: The Kensington ($1,795) // Forever 21 Tench: Classic Trench ($42)

I added this one in because although not as trendy, it’s always a classy staple to have in your wardrobe. And I know I want the Burberry one, but the Forever 21 one is MUCH cheaper and just as beautiful.

I hope this gave some inspiration to hunt for the trends elsewhere!

Happy Reading!

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.
