It’s that time of year again, the #nsale, or, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale … Blogger Christmas, if you will! You’ve probably seen bloggers trying on tons of fall and winter items, putting together bomb outfits, and stressing about getting the blog post(s) live before the cardholders can shop the sale tomorrow (July 12th).
The last couple of years I’ve blogged about the Nordy Sale and this year, I’m taking a different approach. I’m not going to lie to you, I’m on a super strict budget this year which is every bit annoying but, that’s adulting for you ;). I’d be a complete fraud if I said I was going to go ape shit crazy during the sale this year and my goal is to always remain transparent with you guys. With that being said, I decided to find just eight, yes you read that right, EIGHT items you need from this sale that you can walk out of Nordstrom with (or walk back to your bed if you’re shopping from home) and be totally, 100% happy.
Tory Burch Mini Everly Crossbody Bag; $165
This crossbody is cute, super versatile (aka I’ll dress it up and down) and doesn’t completely break the bank for a designer piece!
Jumbo St. Tropez Tanning Mousse; $49
If you literally don’t buy a single thing from this sale, PLEASE, buy this. It is, in my opinion, the absolute BEST value. I’m a self-tanning, pale as f gal and this bronzing mousse is my bff. This size is typically not even sold in stores and if it were it would be like $88 … sooOooOoo … you need it.
DryBar Get Brushin’ and Crushin’ Set; $165
You already know I’m all about DryBar and allllll the products that come along with DB. I haven’t tried this straightening brush yet but, if I wanted to, NOW would be the time. The straightening brush retails alone for $145 so this is really a no-brainer purchase if you’re in the market for some new goodies from DryBar.
Steve Madden Rockstar Booties; $79.90
I bought these last year in snakeskin and I absolutely adore them! I’m so happy good old Steve released them in leopard print because, if you couldn’t tell, that’s my favorite neutral color … heeehee! They are a little pricey, I will admit that. However, they’re a good, quality bootie that will last you from fall into winter for years to come. They’re a great statement piece to add a little bit of somethin’ somethin’ to any outfit.
Adidas Edge Lux 3; $63.90
I’m always on the lookout for running shoes on sale and these are such a cute staple item to grab! I’ve heard that the word on the street is these shoes feel like you’re walking on a cloud and, I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what my feet deserve to feel.
Zella Live-In Leggings; $38.90
I actually “live-in” these leggings most of the time. I work from home, don’t have friends, and despise wearing actual clothes … sound familiar? If only me from college could see me now wearing leggings all the time. HA, athleisure for life, am I right? I’m serious though when I say that these leggings are comparable to Lululemon leggings and a fraction of the price. While they’re not the cheapest thing you’ll come across, they ARE the best quality for the price. ***my subtle humor should be taken with a grain of salt, I do have friends and there’s nothing wrong with literally living in leggings, do ya thang girlfriend!***
Madewell 10-inch High Rise Denim; $84.90
On the off chance that I DO have to wear jeans or put real clothes on, my go to bottom is ALWAYS a pair of Madewell Jeans. Why? Because they’re flattering, actually fit my body, and are comfortable! If you’ve been waiting to try a pair because of the price tag, now is the time to grab a pair and see what the magic is allllll about!
BlankNYC Leopard Cozy Teddy Coat; $64.90
This is my slightly boujee, not really practical for everyday wear, but still love it pick! Everyone needs to have one of those, right? If you’ve never tried a jacket by BlankNYC, first off, you need to and second, this is the time to do it! I’m obsessed with the style of the coat (it’s called a trucker coat, so whatever that means!!!!) and I think it would be the cutest addition to a casual outfit to give it that extra bit the outfit is missing.
And that’s a wrap! Eight items that you’ll be totally satisfied with. Sure, swap a few items out and replace them with you personal favorites. Maybe a v-neck tee from BP ($11.90) or maybe something else that fits with your style. Remember, while I’m trying to (and many other bloggers too) build a shopping list for you based off of my favorite items, always feel free to do your own thing and purchase the items YOU love.
