NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I’VE PURCHASED

Hi everyone!! HAPPY MONDAY! Another weekend has flown by and a new week has begun! In today’s post I’m sharing everything I’ve purchased from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so far! I asked on Instagram earlier today if you’d all like to see a try on session and a ton of you said yes! So I figured I’d put a post together sharing all of the outfits that I tried on during that try on session!

If you have ANY questions about anything, don’t hesitate to ask!! I’m going to be doing some more shopping as the days go on so be sure to let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to see from me. Like I said on my Instagram Stories, I want to create content that YOU want to see! Any input from you is greatly appreciated!

That being said, let’s get into today’s post and all of the outfits I’ve put together so far!

Halogen Scallop Tank || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

I LOVEEE this top! I have it in this red color and black, too!! It runs TTS – I’m wearing mine in an XS! I have only purchased one pair of denim in the sale so far and these AG jeans are amaaaazing. They’re so comfy and fit great! They’re also TTS – I’m wearing a 26! AG jeans are seriously worth the splurge – great quality and they last forever! If you’ve been debating about buying a pair, I’d do it when they’re discounted! As for these booties, I’m obsessed. I love the cutout detailing and the color as well. They’re also TTS – I’m typically a size 8 and I’m wearing these in an 8!

BP V-Neck Pullover || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

The first thing I want to mention about this sweater is the color! It’s even more gorgeous in person. This is one of my FAVORITE colors to wear in Fall. However if you’re not a fan of this color, it comes in 5 other colors! It’s SO soft and cozy – would be great for layering under a jacket and with a scarf too! I’m definitely going to be ordering a few more colors of this sweater!

Socialite Cozy Thermal Top || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Borris Block Heel Bootie

Again, another great find. This thermal top really is a hidden gem in the sale. It’s so cozy and soft and it comes in 4 colors! I am wearing mine in a size Small and the color “Soft Rock.”

Top Shop Sweater || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Borris Block Heel Booties

Ummm you guys. I can’t get enough of this sweater. I seriously think it’s my favorite purchase so far throughout the sale. Have you seen the back??? If not you need to go to my Instagram right now and see how amazing the back of this sweater is!! Not to mention it’s SO soft and comfortable to wear! I’m wearing mine in a US size 4! I also loveee the sleeves! They’re bell sleeved but not too much where you’d have to worry about getting them in your food while you’re eating (priorities, right??) I have a feeling this sweater will sell out soon so go get it fast!!

Halogen Tie Hem Sweater || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Borris Ankle Booties

Ok while I do really like this sweater , I can’t say that it’s one of my favorites. I’ve gotten great items by Halogen before but this one definitely doesn’t compare. I was confused on how to tie the front of it (maybe that’s just me lol) and it’s not nearly as soft as the other sweaters I’ve purchased. I do still like the sweater though! I’m wearing it in the color “Soft Pink” and size Small!

Lush Raw Edge Side Slit Tee || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Borris Block Heel Booties

I’m sure you have all seen this tee everywhere lately but I’m here to let you know that it really is a great purchase! There are only 3 colors left of it as of right now. I’m wearing mine in a size Small and I like the oversized fit of it! It’s great for layering (as you’ll see in the next few pics!)

BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket || Lush Tee || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Hinge Borris Block Heel Booties

This jacket is EVERYTHING I needed and more!! This was included in the sale last year and I regretted not buying it. I was nervous about how it would fit and whether or not it would actually be comfortable but it truly is! I got it in a size small and I love everything about it. I am also thinking about getting it in the gray color too!

Dreamers by Debut Rib Knit Open Cardigan || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Lush Tee || Kate Spade Lenna Tassel Sneaker

I’m SO upset because both this cardigan and these sneakers are already sold out! I’m going to keep them here anyway in hopes that they’ll be restocked. This sweater is a dream. It’s as soft as a blanket, no exaggeration. I can see myself reaching for this sweater every night to cuddle up in before bed! And I’m obsessed with everything about these sneakers. The color is amazing and I love the tassel! I must say that they are not the easiest sneakers to get on – they’re definitely not true slip ons! They do have a zipper on the side though!

BP Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan || AG Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans || Kate Spade Lenna Tassel Sneakers

This is another great basic cardigan! You can’t beat the price and it’s really comfortable! I love that it has pockets, too! This one comes in 4 colors and I’m wearing mine in “Beige Oatmeal Medium Heather” and I have it in a size Small!

Madewell Softplaid Fringe Scarf

I actually got this scarf from Madewell a while back and was excited to see that it’s included in the sale this year! I love the colors and it’s a great transition piece. It’s super soft and fun to wear into the Fall!

If you have any questions about ANYTHING please let me know!!

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!

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!!

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! I’ve recently gotten a TON of questions about what mascaras I use sooo I figured it was time to write a whole post on my favorites. I’m a mascara junkie – I loveee it and probably own WAY too many, but I’m OK with it! Today I’ll share what I’ve been using recently that I’ve been loving!

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

1. Stila Huge Extreme Lash: This has been my latest obsession and I absolutely love it. It’s great not only for lengthening but for providing volume as well. I also love using black mascara and I feel like this one is super black. It’s a very wet formula so it’s great for someone who loves to add a lot of layers (me!). The only downfall with this mascara is that it’s messy! Whenever I close the tube there’s ALWAYS mascara on the outside and it creates quite the mess.

2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I always feel SO funny when people ask me what mascara I’m wearing and I have to tell them it’s called “Better Than Sex.” But seriously, this stuff is GOLD. I love layering this mascara on top of the Stila Huge Extreme Lash. This one is also a pretty wet formula so it’s great for layering. You can let the Stila mascara dry a bit and then go ahead and apply this one on top after. Both mascaras are great on their own but I personally love the combination of the two!

3. Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara: Ok guys this one has been a tried and true favorite for YEARS now. And I’m sure you’ve heard all about it from other people BUT let me tell you how I use this mascara. In my opinion, this one is great for lengthening and getting rid of any clumps that may have formed. I usually apply this one after the Too Faced one (I know, seems so high maintenance and it kind of is! lol). I don’t always apply this one but if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll do the extra step. I’ll also use this one on my bottom lashes. I feel like the previous two mascaras I mentioned are too thickening to use on my bottom lashes so I usually use this one! I love this mascara too because of the applicator. It has a ball on the end of it that helps reach those tiny lashes that you can’t typically reach with a normal applicator.

4. Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer: I feel like lash primers are often overlooked and I wish people realized the beauty of them! I’ll be honest – I rarely use one but when I do, I use the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer. This is so great for lengthening your lashes BEFORE you even put mascara on. You apply this – it looks funny because it’s white – and then you apply your mascara right on top! It really works wonders and I highly recommend using this for someone who doesn’t have the longest lashes. It makes a world of a difference!

5. Tarte Mandater: Another great name for a mascara if you ask me! This one is another favorite that I’ve been loving recently. First of all, the packaging is SO cute. Also this mascara is another great one for lengthening! I’ll use this one the same way that I use the Benefit one. It’s great on it’s own if all you’re looking for is lengthening and a bit of volume, but I think it works best when layered on top of another mascara!

Here’s a few pictures where you can see my lashes: Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras See full post here!

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras Lip Color: Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip in the color “Azalea”

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras Sweatshirt: Spiritual Gangster (on sale for under $50!)

Alright so there’s a few of my favorite mascaras and the ones that I love to wear together! I’ve recently been trying to share more beauty “tips” on my Instagram stories and sometimes I’ll even do an Instagram live while getting ready! Feel free to reach out with any questions!!

There ya have it! Todays Beauty Talk: best mascaras! I hope you enjoyed this post!
