NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || TOP PICKS

Hi everyone!! It’s day 2 of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access and there’s still SO much stuff I want to buy! I can’t believe Nordstrom’s website crashed yesterday! YIKES! I hope that none of you had too much of an issue buying the items you really want.

Yesterday I shared some items with you that I bought last year in the sale that I LOVED and that are included again in this year’s sale. Today I’m going to share all of my TOP PICKS included in this year’s sale. I ordered a bunch of stuff online and picked it up in the store yesterday and I also bought some stuff in the store. It’s so helpful seeing the items in person so I can give you guys a true idea of what they’re like.

Let’s get into my TOP PICKS!

TOPS

Now would be a great time to stock up on some staples to add to your closet! This top would be great to buy to wear to work! It’s available in a ton of colors this year and it’s marked down to $27.90! I also picked up this tee in two colors and I’m about to buy it in more! It’s great for layering in the fall under a sweater or scarf! The best part is that it’s only $15.90!! This tank is one of my favorites because of the high neck line. I got it in a few colors and it’s only $18.90!

SWEATERS

There are SO many great sweaters included in the sale! Some of them have already sold out so I’ll be sure to let you know if they come back in stock. The sweaters that stood out to me the most are:
1. ASTR the Label Open Lines V-Neck Sweater: I love the look of this sweater! It’s an oversized fit and super lightweight.
2. Madewell Ryder Cardigan: I have had my eye on this cardigan for a while and I think I’m ready to pull the trigger on this one now that it’s at such a great price. What color do you guys think I should get??
3. Leith Easy Circle Cardigan: This sweater is a must have. I have it in two colors already and I’m ready to purchase it in the “pink adobe” color! I said this in my previous post but I have it in a Small and an XS and I prefer the XS!
4. Topshop Lattice Back Sweater: I LOVE the back of this sweater! I can’t wait to see how this looks on!

PANTS

If there’s a good time to buy designer jeans, it’s now! They’re all marked down so much and it’s such a good deal. My favorite brands are AG and DL1961. The AG jeans are marked down from $225 to $149.90. They are such a great investment, especially at that price!

DRESSES & SKIRTS

Out of all of the dresses and skirts I’d have to say this skirt is my favorite! I just have to decide which color to get it in! I also ordered this dress in navy! Which ones are your favorite dresses or skirts??

Those are my top picks when it comes to tops, pants, dresses, and sweaters! Next week I’ll share a full round up of what I purchased, including pictures of me in each item! I’ll also share my top picks for makeup, shoes, home decor, and workout wear! Stay tuned! Also don’t forget to always check in on my Instagram because I will be sharing some sneak peeks of what I’ve purchased!

There ya have it! A look at my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks!! I hope you enjoyed this post! Happy Shopping!!

Tory Burch Risa Espadrille Flat $99.90 After Sale: $168
I bought my first pair of Tory Burch Espadrilles last year during the sale and they were seriously my most worn pair of shoes during the Fall.

This Tory Burch bag sold out SO fast last year during the sale! I’m so excited that they brought it back this year because it’s such a great bag!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Hi everyone!!! It’s almost that time of year again – time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – AKA the best sale EVER. Last year was my first year shopping the sale and let me tell ya, it was amazingggg! I bought SO many Fall and Winter staples that I wore consistently throughout the past year. OK so let’s get into what this sale is all about.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Each year Nordstrom holds their Anniversary Sale and SO many great Fall and Winter items are marked down to amazing prices. It’s my favorite sale every because it’s all BRAND NEW merchandise that’s on sale! It’s the best time to prepare for the upcoming Fall and Winter months!

When Can I Shop the Sale?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017
The start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is quickly approaching! If you are a Nordstrom Cardholder, you have Early Access starting on July 13th!!That’s just 3 days away! If you’re a cardholder I encourage you to shop the sale ASAP because all of the best items sell out SO FAST. You can apply for a Nordstrom debit or credit card here!

HOW Should I Shop the Sale?

OK personally this sale gives me a little bit of anxiety because I want to buy all the best stuff before it sells out! Here are some tips for shopping the sale:

Go back through your closet and look at all of the Fall and Winter items that you already own. It’s important to figure out what you NEED in your wardrobe. Think about work clothes, shoes, athletic wear, and even GIFTS. I like to make a list before the sale of what I need/want to buy!

It’s also important to figure out which items are going to sell out the quickest. I recommend buying those items first before other people beat you to it! I think it’s also a great idea to set a budget for yourself and spend that money on items that you really need. When a great sale like this comes around, it’s easy to spend SO much money on stuff you may not actually need.

What Can I Expect to See in the Sale?

Last year I provided in depth posts on what I purchased and what items were on my wishlist during the sale. You can find all of those posts here! This will give you an idea of what to expect for this year’s sale!

 

Be sure to follow along on Instagram and check back here to see exactly what I purchase during the sale! Feel free to reach out with any questions at any time! Happy Shopping!!

Athleisure With Athleta

Athleisure with Athleta

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day! I’m so excited because today I’m talking all about Athleisure with Athleta! I’m hosting an event at the Greenwich, CT Athleta on Saturday, June 3 from 12-2. If you’re in the area you should definitely come and say hi!! I’d love to meet all of you and show you all of the amazing pieces Athleta has right now!

I went to the store last week and got to try on some of their clothes and I fell in love with all of it! Honestly, I had NO idea that Athleta had more than just workout clothes, but they’ve got it all. They have bathing suits, lounge wear, sneakers and sandals, dresses, and so much more!!

I tried on these pants and immediately fell in love with them. The material is super soft and easy to move around in. Perfect for lounging around or for any workout! I know I’ll be wearing them to Barre all the time! I also didn’t know how amazing Athleta’s sports bras are! It was my first time trying one on and like the pants, I had to take it home with me!

I also went home with the comfiest sweater I’ve ever worn! I love this because it has pockets and it has a magnetic closure which I think is so cool! Lastly, I took this tank home with me. I think the color is so fun and vibrant and perfect for summer! I’ll have all the sizing details below!

There’s so many other items that I have my eye on at Athleta right now. I saw this bag in the store and fell in love with it! It’d be perfect for carrying your clothes to and from the gym. Lately I’ve been having to change when I get to the gym and I’ve been looking for a new bag to transport everything in! They also sell S’Well water bottles which I had no idea!! They also have a great selection of shoes to choose from!

Come meet me and shop with me on Saturday, June 3rd from 12-2 at the Greenwich, CT Athleta location! I’ll show you all of my favorite pieces and we’ll get to hang out!

There ya have it! A glimpse at some Athleisure with Athleta! I hope you enjoyed this post!
