sales & steals: the nordstrom sale.


(image via)

literally everyone and their brother is talking about the nordstrom anniversary sale and i’m so annoyed of it but i feel like a lot of my friends and family don’t know about it. SO, i’m going to do this one post and update it as i find good things and hopefully help y’all find some good deals.

if you don’t have a nordstrom card, its super easy to apply here. i just have the debit card and it gives me access to the sale just like credit card members.

okay. so my favorite things from the sale so far:

beauty:
literally the only thing i’ve bought so far from the sale is this living proof set. its 3 FULL SIZED products! and when i bought it, i was able to snag the free gift with purchase of 2 travel sized products, too. i literally got nearly $100 worth of product for $45. unreal.

i’m also thinking about buying this alterna set before the sale is over. i got the travel sized products in a sephora reward a few weeks ago and i’m loving them!

these voluspa candles are amazing! now is a good time to stock up on them to have on hand for last minute gifts

one of my friends at work has this donna karan lotion, and i’ve heard rave reviews about the deodorant. i’ll probably grab this $25 set soon!

women’s:
i am OBSESSED with this adidas t-shirt and these adidas leggings are in my cart as we speak.


the exact replica of this zara shirt (from this post) is included in the sale in tons of colors. these are also a similar pair of loafers, that actually look like better quality for less than i paid for my zara pair.

obsessed with this pocket tee.

this is a GREAT deal on a north face rain jacket. i’m really debating it for ireland!


my marc fisher chelsea booties that i’m wearing in this post in black.

these stuart weitzman OTK boots are a great deal if you’re looking to invest in a pair!


my trusty nike air max thea sneakers in a super cool embossed croc-ish print.


the pair rag & bone jeans i’m wearing in this post as well as a very similar flowy plaid button down.


these j.crew jeans from this post are the BEST. i have 3 pairs of them! and though this pair of rag & bone boots isn’t floral, thats a great price for such a closet staple investment piece!


i bought these zella leggings during last year’s anniversary sale (seen in this post) and they definitely live up to the hype!

men’s:
i really want to get marty every colorway of these nike roshe two sneakers.

the wash on these the rail t-shirts looks really cool and comfortable.

love this thermal henley-perfect for layering in the fall and winter!

this herschel supply co. backpack would make a great carry-on.

i didn’t know nordstrom carried le labo!! this set would make a great gift! santal 33 smells DIVINE.

home:
a gold bar cart for under $150? all the praise hands.

looooove the marble on this s’well water bottle.

this rug is beautiful.

 

 

lazy sunday.

this weekend was the best kind of busy.

friday night marty and i went to luke bryan, where i country girl shook it all night long. then, saturday, my bestie kathleen and i threw our other bestie, alice, a little baby shower. anytime the three of us are together is the best time, and its even better when all of our “group” can be there. there are 6 of us that have been friends since freshman year of high school, and i love the fact that we’re all still close.

yesterday, marty and i hosted a little brunch before alice went back to georgia, and when i was planning it i told everyone that it would be super casual and that i would most likely be in pajamas. though i didn’t wear my actual pajamas, i did wear this essentially pajamas outfit. y’all know i love a good flowy t-shirt..perfect for hiding biscuit induced food baby.

details: hat, similar t-shirt, similar joggers here and here, nikes, sunglasses

i need space.

i walked by this shirt in nordstrom a few years ago and i immediately bought it, no questions asked. if you know me, you know i’m not touchy feely and i literally need my space. also, i teach a class of stage five clinger 3 year olds, the shirt speaks for itself really.

details: suburban riot t-shirt, j.crew factory jacket, old navy jeans, marc fisher ltd boots

(easter circa 1991 with my mom and my mimi)

maybe (most likely) its just a southern thing, but picking out my easter dress has pretty much always been a big deal. obviously when i was younger, my mom got to pick. but as i got older, choosing the perfect dress was a very important task (gotta look your best for jesus’ big day you know).

this overall skirt situation was one of my more random late night online shopping finds. and you’ll never guess where i found it-old navy! for $14! i may never win anything ever, but at least i’m a pro online shopper.

i’m not hating this no-winter winter we’re having. i’ve logged a lot of patio time so far and i don’t plan on stopping any time soon (#basic).

details: old navy overalls (similar), similar striped t-shirt, golden goose sneakers

 

ivy park.

i leave for the cute town of lagrange, georgia tomorrow for my bestie and queen of the bey hive’s wedding weekend, and these shorts are obviously in my suitcase.

i’m ashamed to admit that i’m not really a beyonce fan, but i SURE did jump on this ivy park bandwagon earlier this summer. when i looked through the collection at nordstrom, i wanted it all. its the epitome of athleisure, perfect for the gym slash perfect for everything else.

details: ivy park shorts, v-neck t-shirtray bansnikesfitbit

t-shirt dress.

maybe its just me, but easy tshirt dresses like this are practically seasonless. loose and cool and comfortable for the unbearable summer heat, but if you add booties and a scarf its perfect for fall too. maybe even uggs in the winter?! (okay, too far i know)

details: asos tshirt dress (EXTREMELY similar style-this one is just a little longer), j.crew sandals, bucket bag, aviators
