Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Best of Beauty, Home, & Gifts

Happy Thursday, friends! I had the best day at Nordstrom with Mama Sugarplum yesterday! We swooned, we shopped, we lunched… it was so fun to be back together doing what we love most.

We found SO MANY amazing finds in this year’s Anniversary Sale, and we’re excited to share our first Dressing Room Diaries tomorrow! These plaid cuties were definitely a favorite find for us both, and these sneakers were a fun surprise find we each brought home! I was thrilled to grab my favorite denim on sale, and these jeans are a steal and so good!`

Ambassador Members can begin shopping today (log in to your account to see when you can start shopping, non-cardholders can shop July 15), but you can save items to a Nordstrom Wish List now for fast and easy shopping later.

I’m thrilled you loved my top picks for Women yesterday, including boots, sneakers, denim, sweaters, and more! Be sure to check them out HERE, along with my Top Essentials of the Sale HERE.

Today I’m rounding up my favorite picks for Beauty, Home, and Gifts, but first…a few peeks at the styles I loved most from our shopping day.


DRD Sneak Peek //

Denim and Shoes were the winners for me (in the fashion category), and I hit the jackpot with several styles. These two were my hands-down faves, and will be on repeat this season. Of course we grabbed new scoopneck tees to replace our tired ones from last year… how can you pass up $12?!

Fit Tip: The jeans are true to size, I’m wearing a 26 in the Mother and 2 in the Kut from the Kloth. I wear a small tee.

Right: Kut from the Kloth Rachael Mom Jeans | Scoop Neck Tee | Sneakers | Necklace


We loved several shoes, but if I had to narrow it down, these are my top four styles. The white sneakers go with absolutely everything from denim to dresses, and the plaid mules are surprisingly neutral! Mama SP grabbed these slippers, and I’m now the excited owner of these styles…

Fit Tip: I found them all true to size.

White Leather Sneakers | Colorful Street Sneaker
Suede Bootie | Plaid Chain Mule (I also got them in blush!)


Along with some closet staples (like these undies and this tee), we both took advantage of the incredible 40% off prices, and splurged on this Barefoot Dreams set. It’s literally like being wrapped up in heaven (or what I’d imagine heaven to be!). I also grabbed a new Barefoot Dreams cardigan, and absolutely love this new style!

Fit Tip: Set is true to size, I’m in an XS and Mom is in a Small.

Barefoot Dreams Cropped Lounge Set | Barefoot Dreams Lite Cardigan


I’m absolutely obsessed with the Farm Rio prints and styles, but usually shy away given the price point. What better time to splurge on a statement style than when it’s 40% off?! (How’s that for justification?!) I positively swooned over this top and skirt, and can not wait to wear it together and as separates!

Fit Tip: I’m in an XS top and Small skirt.

Left: Balloon Sleeve Top | Tiered Skirt | Sandals
Middle: Balloon Sleeve Top | Mother Tomcat Jeans | Sandals
Right: Scoop Neck Tee | Tiered Skirt | Sandals


And finally, it’s a cardigan we’ve seen year after year, but it keeps coming back for good reason… it’s Fall perfection! Super soft and in a longer length, I couldn’t help myself with these stripes.

Fit Tip: It runs large, size down one!
