Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Everyone Can Shop!

Hello hello, friends! Happy Monday and welcome back to a new week! We escaped to the lake this weekend trying to avoid the heat, but it just followed us there, ha! Summer is my favorite season, but this heat is making me crave fall!

But let’s move on to more exciting things… It’s Public Access Day for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale… meaning everyone can now shop this epic sale event! (Nordstrom card not required!)

Chances are you’ve probably got your cart ready to go, but if you only buy one thing… let it be THIS!! I promise it’s the best $19 gift you’ll give yourself or anyone else! Seriously, everyone loves it!! It’s a Sugarplum top seller year-after-year for a reason!

Mama Sugarplum and I hit our local store early on (see our Dressing Room Diaries HERE), and these were the stand-out pieces for me. I also placed an online order for these seamless undies (I love them for under leggings) and splurged on this purse.

NSale | Favorite Finds //

Floral Drop Waist Dress (XS) | Pointed Block Heel Booties


This cashmere crewneck is lightweight and soft enough to wear on its own, but easily layers over a collared shirt, too. It comes in a slew of colors and at under $80, it makes a great gift!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS in the sweater and size 26 in the jeans.

Cashmere Sweater (XS) | Pistola Straight Leg Jeans (size 26) | Chain Slide Mules


Mama SP makes a beeline to the lounge section every year specifically for these pajamas! They’re her absolute favorites, and the price is so crazy-good during the NSale! They’re lightweight jersey knit with a cool, silky finish, and the prints and colors are so cute.

Fit Tip: I’m in a size XS. 

Long Sleeve Pajama Pant Set


Every closet should have a military/utility jacket… period! They are the best Fall layer for everything from light sweaters and tops to transitional dresses. Plus, the style adds a touch of edge that make outfits so stylish. This new cotton twill is a great option, with a hidden drawstring waist to give a more flattering and feminine fit, and the price is bananas!!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS jacket and size 2 jeans.

Utility Jacket (XS) | Scoopneck Pocket Tee (Small) | Kut Rachael Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans (size 2) | Pointed Block Heel Booties


You know Nordstrom delivers when it comes to athletic wear, and mom and I had the hardest time narrowing down our Zella faves! This new lilac was my favorite, and I wanted pretty much every style in it! The leggings are buttery soft with the perfect 7/8 length for my frame, and even pockets to hold your phone. I love their longline bras for a tank-meets-sports bra fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small in both.

High Waist Pocket 7/8 Leggings (Small) | Crop Tank (Small) | ON Cloud Running Shoes


Long cardigans are always a closet staple, and this one is so soft and stretchy, in the perfect mid-weight. I love the longer length and front pockets, and the price is amazing right now!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS, it’s oversized.

Open Front Pocket Cardigan (XS) | Scoopneck Pocket Tee (Small) | Wit & Wisdom Ankle Slim Straight Leg Jeans (size 2) | Pointed Block Heel Booties


A no-brainer flutter top that easily dresses up or down, the neck is a stretchy smocking with darling ruffle details. It’s a woven material with either a cute print or textured dot. The black pants were an exciting find since great-fitting black trousers are so hard to find! They’re crazy soft and stretchy, in a nice thick material and flattering wide leg.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top and 2p pants (which feel a tad short, so I ordered a reg 2).

Ruffle Cap Sleeve Blouse (XS) |  Wide Leg Ponte Knit Trousers (size 2p) | Cap Toe Ballet Flats


These shirts are a splurge, but I assure you worth every penny! I treated myself to one last year, and reach for it all the time (with jeans, over a swimsuit, thrown on with cut-offs). It’s so lightweight and gauzy, you barely feel it on your body, and it’s perfectly relaxed. It’s hard to describe until you’ve tried it for yourself, but there’s a reason they have such incredible reviews.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small. 

Organic Cotton Button Up Shirt (Small) | Kut Rachael Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans (size 2) | Chain Slide Mules


I tried on no fewer than 30 pairs of shoes, and these were the styles that stood out most to me.

Fit Tip: All were true-to-size except the ballet flats, which I sized down half.

Tall Western Boots (TTS) | Chain Slide Mules (TTS) | Cap Toe Ballet Flats (size down half) | Pointed Block Heel Booties (TTS)

    I’ve bought the long cardi in oatmeal, the NYDJ knit pants and the Caslon utility jacket in navy. I don’t need much. My closet is overflowing.
