Happy Friday, friends, and welcome to the weekend! We arrived home yesterday and are battling some serious jet lag… so the weekend comes at the perfect time. If you need me, I’ll be nursing iced coffee and tackling the laundry all day!
We had the best time, and knowing our family vacations are limited now that everyone is older, I savored every second! I’ve got a gajillion photos on my phone, so once I get those sorted I’ll have a full Trip Report for you.
In other news, this marks the final weekend of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! After Sunday, the prices will go to full-price, so if you’ve had your eye on something, now is your last chance to grab it up to 40% off.
I use it mostly as the chance to stock up on my go-to products, and replace my tired closet staples. Today I’m sharing the pieces I actually shopped and took home with me! You’ll recognize many from my Sugarplum Faves list, but a few were fun, new finds.
My NSale Home Buys //
No surprise here, but I grabbed two more of my favorite throws for the lake house! They are insanely soft, with the cutest tassel trim. It comes in a ton of colors, launders well, and is a great price during the NSale. They make perfect gifts, too!
Bliss Throw Blanket | Blanket Ladder
My NSale Fashion Buys //
White tees have a limited shelf life around here, so I always take advantage of the special NSale pricing to refresh my favorite scoopneck tees. They’re made of the softest fabric, are a great length, and are only $11!
Fit Tip: It’s TTS, so choose based on how you prefer your tees to fit. I’m wearing a Small.
Scoopneck Pocket Tee | Mother Straight Leg Jeans | Initial Necklace
The denim was really good in this year’s NSale, and I found several great styles with a flattering and comfortable fit.
Distressed Slim Jeans | High Waist Mom Crop Jeans | Raw Hem Button Fly Jeans | Ankle Skinny Jeans | Mother Straight Leg Jeans
These are the two styles I loved most, and will be wearing on repeat once the weather cooperates. And if you’re looking for stylish street sneakers, this classic pair is perfect for jeans, dresses and skirts, and are really comfy!
Fit Tip: The jeans are true to size, I’m wearing a 26 in the Mother and 2 in the Kut from the Kloth.

Right: Kut from the Kloth Rachael Mom Jeans | Scoop Neck Tee | Sneakers | Necklace
Barefoot Dreams is hard to resist when it’s 40% off, and this year I grabbed this new style with a draped collar and longer length. It’s the coziest, most luxurious hug every time I put it on. It also makes the absolute best gift!
Fit Tip: I wear an XS/S.
Barefoot Dream Long Cardigan | Scoopneck Pocket Tee | High Waist Mom Crop Jeans | Kate Spade Initial Necklace | Oversized Sunglasses
Mama Sugarplum goes straight for these pajamas every year, and I couldn’t resist the cute shorts style in the fun pink leopard!
Long Pajama Set | Short Pajama Set | UGG Slide Slippers
As for activewear, this pullover was hands-down my favorite… followed by these ca-uuuute Adidas sneaks!
Crop Sweatshirt | Running Shorts | Adidas Supernova Sneakers
I don’t usually keep sweaters this early in the season, but I did hold on to this softer-than-soft crewneck because I’m so smitten with the color, and I know I’ll wear it on repeat this fall.
Fit Tip: They run a bit oversized, I’m in an XS.
Crewneck Sweater | High Waist Mom Crop Jeans | Pavé Hoop Earrings | Kate Spade Initial Necklace | Oversized Sunglasses
My NSale Shoe Buys //
Nordstrom really knocked it out of the park in the shoe department this year! I basically refreshed every major shoe category in my closet, and kept all these… ooops!
Fit Tip: All are true to size except the Adidas, which I sized down half.
Clockwise from Top:
Adidas Supernova Sneakers | Chain Mules | Low Top Sneakers | Suede Sneakers | Plaid Chain Mules | Block Heel Booties
These sneakers were my favorite surprise find… so beyond cute and comfy, and I adore the colors for Fall!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS sweater, 26 jeans, and sneakers are TTS.
Crewneck Sweater | Mother Straight Leg Jeans | Suede Sneakers | Pavé Hoop Earrings
And these plaid slides are surprisingly neutral… and the cutest pop of pattern and texture for basic outfits.
Fit Tip: Sweater runs large, I sized down to XXS. Jeans run a little big, I sized down to a 0.
V-Neck Sweater | Raw Hem Button Fly Jeans | Chain Mules | Pavé Hoop Earrings | Kate Spade Initial Necklace
My NSale Beauty Buys //
Besides shoes, beauty was my other favorite category in this year’s NSale. I stocked up on several favorites I use and reach for daily, and was especially excited to see my favorite summer face sunscreen included! This gives the best beachy glow… I wear it alone, or mixed with foundation or tinted moisturizer.
These products are long-time faves, so I grabbed refills while they were on sale. The only new beauty product I added was the NeuBrow Serum… Mama SP swears by it, and I know the NeuLash works… so I’m going to give this a consistent try!
Oribe Magic Set | Anastasia BH Deluxe Brow Kit | Necessaire Body Duo | NeuBrow Serum | NeuLash | Kiehl’s Ultimate Hand Salve | Supergoop! Glow Screen Duo | St. Tropez Tanning Mousse
My NSale Splurges //
Outside of the closet staples and beauty restocks, I did splurge on two very unexpected finds… and I couldn’t be happier about them! First up, this Barefoot Dreams set! It’s truly like being wrapped in a heavenly hug. Think about it, head-to-toe Barefoot Dreams goodness, in a chic lounge set!
I’m also a huge fan of Farm Rio, so I couldn’t resist this darling style while it was on a rare sale! I’ve already worn it a handful of times, as both a set and as separates. I even wore the skirt over a swimsuit in Hawaii this week. Major score!

Im not sure the Barefoot Dreams Sweater link is correct. The one your wearing has a different collar and ribbed arms. Am I wrong? Also, what color did you buy? Thanks!
Hi Terry! Yes I believe I got my cardis mixed up, the post is corrected! Correct cardigan is linked below too:
I picked up Neulash, three pocket Ts, your fave joggers in navy and Spanx ponte knit pants in black. They’re my new favorite ‘thin’ pants when the weather cools down.
Still debating the Barefoot cardi in black. Will I use it enough? I do own and wear a lot of black already.
What a great haul, Patricia!!! The BF dreams is for sure a splurge, but I bet you’ll be grabbing for it all fall/winter long! xo, C
I wanted to add that the quality of the barefoot cardi is outstanding!! I’ve had mine from the Nsale since 2018 and they still look brand new. I wear mine around the house all the time!
It’s seriously one of my favorite things!
