LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE!

Hi everyone!! I’m so excited because the Loft Friends & Family sale has started!

As some of you may know, I hosted a shopping event at Loft recently so I got the opportunity to see all of their amazing new pieces!! I’ve compiled some of the outfits that I already have and that I think you all need in your life. I’ll also be sharing what’s on my wishlist during this sale. You can receive 40% off your purchase with the code FRIENDS

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE!
Sweater: Lou & Grey get 40% off with code FRIENDS || Jeans: Levi’s & Levi’s || Shoes: Vans

This sweater is SOOO soft and the color is seriously the best. I’m wearing it in a size Small. These jeans are so cute too, I want them in the darker color! They’re pretty TTS (I’m wearing a 26!).

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE
TShirt: Loft Get 40% off with the code FRIENDS || Jeans: AG || Hat: The 203 || Shoes: Vans

This TShirt is THE BEST. I kid you not. I have it in the striped version too and I wear them both all the time. I’m wearing it in a size small – it’s definitely a looser fit but I like it that way!

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE
Sweater: not available online yet, SORRY! || Jeans: Loft Get 40% off with code FRIENDS || Booties: Nordstrom (also on sale!!)

Unfortunately this sweater is not available online yet but I promise to let you know as soon as it is!! Anyways, these jeans called my name right away when I walked into the store. I love the frayed hem and how they’re not a true black or a true gray! I’m wearing a size 26 and I’d say they’re pretty TTS. AND these booties are also on sale – such a good find! I’ve already worn them so much this Fall!

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE
Sweater: Loft Get 40% off with code FRIENDS || Jeans: Nordstrom

I love the back of this sweater so much! It’s such a flattering fit. Again, I’m wearing this in a size Small and I’d say it’s pretty TTS! It comes in a few colors, too!

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE!
Jacket: Loft Get 40% off with code FRIENDS || Jeans: AG || Sandals: Tory Burch (in the color MAKEUP)

I just love how different this jacket is than anything I own! I love the interior stripes – I think it adds such a nice touch. I’m wearing it in a size small!

LOFT FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE!
Sweater: Loft Get 40% off with code FRIENDS ||

I fell in love with this sweater as soon as I saw it! I’m into the off the shoulder and cold shoulder trend lately and this sweater is just perfect for that. It also comes in a solid color in case you’re not into stripes! I’m wearing this in a size Small!

OK so that’s everything I’ve been loving lately from Loft that I already own. NOWWW for my wishlist and what I want to purchase during this sale:

So I actually already purchased this vest and I’m so excited about it because I found out that it’s reversible! So it’s like 2 vests in 1. Gotta love it.

My mom got this sweater the other day in the greenish color and she is OBSESSED. As am I. I’m obviously going to order one for myself. I’d say this runs kind of large so size down if you plan on buying it!

Alright there ya have it! My Loft Friends & Family Sale picks! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Thanks for reading!

My Loft Sale Picks!

Hi everyone! In today’s post I’m sharing my Loft sale picks!

I just took a quick trip to Loft because they’re having an 50% off sale event online right now! I went to the store to try some things on for you guys (and of course I ended up buying a few things! Whoops!) But anyways, let’s get into my picks!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Sleeveless Coatigan || Striped Dolman Tee

This vest is SO cute and SO soft. It comes in a few colors! I’m wearing it here in a size Small. I also love this striped tee – I wear it all the time. I actually bought it a few weeks ago and I’m happy to see its now 50% off! I highly recommend. I’m also wearing the tee in a Small.

My Loft Sale Picks!

Striped Poncho Wrap

I’m a huge fan of ponchos and wraps for Fall and Winter. This one would have come home with me today if I didn’t already have too many! It is seriously soooo soft! And I love the colors!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Chenille Open Cardigan

I have this cardigan in the pink color already and you guys, it is SO soft. I know I’ve been saying that about everything so far but I’m not kidding. I’m not crazy about the color shown above but I do love the pink one!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Striped Bar Back Clean Tee

I thought this shirt would be perfect to wear to work! It has a bar back which I thought was a nice detail. I’m wearing it here in a size Small. I didn’t end up purchasing it in the store but I’ll probably end up buying it online!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Striped Dolman Tee

I’m all about the basics lately and I fell in love with this striped tee. It’s so cozy and perfect for layering under sweaters or wearing on it’s own! It comes in a few colors too. This came home with me today!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Button Shoulder Sweater Tank

I wore this sweater the other day in my Instagram story in the striped version. I almost took the black version home with me too but I had to resist! I think this is the perfect piece for transitioning to Fall! I’m wearing it in an XS here!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Striped Fold Over Off The Shoulder Sweater

OK if there’s one thing you NEED from this sale, it’s this off the shoulder sweater. I loved it so much that I bought it right then and there. It’s so soft (again, just like everything else lol) and I think the colors are so perfect! I think it would look cute with white jeans or black jeans and booties!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Shimmer Utility Blouse

This shirt was another one that I thought would be perfect for work. I love the material of it and I think it would be great for layering (see below!). I also love the color so much!

My Loft Sale Picks!
Shimmer Utility Blouse || Pointelle Open Cardigan

I liked this sweater because I don’t have any sweaters this color. I do have WAY too many sweaters, but none like this! However, if you’re not into this color, it does come in a few different ones!

 

Remember, it’s online only so if you want any of these pieces you have to order them! The best part is that they’re offering free shipping, too!

There ya have it! A look at my Loft sale picks! I hope you enjoyed this post!!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I’VE PURCHASED

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!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I'VE PURCHASED

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I'VE PURCHASED

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I'VE PURCHASED
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!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE || WHAT I'VE PURCHASED

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

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!!
