The most chic sneakers! – Nordstrom Anniversary Sale #nsale

So many of the things I loved from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale sold out unbelievably quickly!  BUT, these sneakers are thankfully still in stock and definitely worth a buy.  One of the things I knew I was specifically searching for during the sale was a black pair of kicks.  I wear my white sneakers so much and I had been wishing for a solid black pair for a while.

Reasons why I am OBSESSED with this pair:

–They are low profile. A must for me with sneakers because I think if they come up higher on my ankle it shortens my leg too much and makes them unflattering.

–The suede and leather combo makes them chic.  This means I can wear them with jeans, shorts, skirts & dresses.  An option I don’t feel like I have with Nike running shoes.

–The white sole is significant without being a large platform.

FYI:  I had to return my first pair and go a 1/2 size up from my regular size.

These sneakers also come in a grey and mauve pink.  I saw these in store and the colors are even better in person!  They’re on sale for under $60 right now!!  I wore mine this weekend with cut off shorts and a black tank but I can’t wait to pair them with leather leggings and a over-sized sweater in the Fall.  OMG, sounds so good–eek!

I am SO excited to share this with you all–I’m taking you through some of the items I purchased in this video.  I think this gives you a much better look at the items!  I also included my sizing on all items for reference.  Give it a watch and just let me know if you have any questions.

Suede Moto

Jacket [sale!] || Dress, similar style here & here || Sneakers || Handbag || Tassel Earrings [under $40] || Sunnies [sale!]

This suede moto jacket is one of my favorite finds from the #nsale and judging by this past year, I think it will be one of my most worn items too!  I got last years version of this suede jacket and I have worn it SO many times so there was no way I was passing this one up!  This year the jacket does not include the belt so it is a little lighter.  A size xs fit me but that is the size I have in my other jacket so I decided to go with a small so I have one that is a little more roomy for layering sweaters under.  The real test will be to see if I can make it to the end of the sale without buying the grey version too!  This jacket sells FAST so if you see your size don’t hesitate to order.  I will let you all know when it is restocked in additional sizes too.

This is how I would wear the jacket now–with a light summer dress and sneaks.  I just layer the jacket over my shoulders when we’re inside and the AC is cranked up.  I added black accessories–this trusty all black handbag, these super fun long tassel earrings and these oversized mirrored sunglasses (which are also on sale) for dinner with Ethan’s fam to celebrate his Dad’s birthday tonight!

ps, sorry my dress is old–from last summer.  Here is a similar one!

What I bought: NORDSTROM SALE 2017(early access) #NSALE

Cheers to Thursday because that means the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here!  The most important sale of the year!  If you are a cardholder you can shop NOW!  Just remember–things will sell out super fast so if you are on the fence about an item I suggest going ahead and grabbing it while they still have your size.  Then you can try it on in person when your order arrives and make your final decision.

I got up super early this morning and looked at every single item included in the sale!  Seriously, every one.  && there are a lot of great goodies.

I am sharing my exact order with you all below.  I got mine overnight shipped ($15) so I will have it tomorrow and will be able to share unboxing and try on sessions with you!

ITEMS I PURCHASED THIS MORNING:

Shoes

Tops

Sweaters/Outerwear

Bottoms

Accessories

 

A few quick takeaways:

Cashmere pieces were my number one goal for the sale.  I got a grey cashmere wrap last year and it is my most used item in my closet.  Especially for travel.  So this item and this item were musts!

I knew I was going to buy a moto jacket and I was so excited to see this color!

I have been on the hunt for black sneakers and I fell in love with these!

This tank is adorable and only $22!

These work wear basics–need.  Cardigan and pants!

I am OBSESSED with these sunnies (I already have them in two colors) so when I saw this option included in the sale I had to have it!

&& I couldn’t check out without a few good lounge pieces.  You all know me and comfort.  So excited about these and these!

 

The items I purchased last year were my go-to pieces all Fall and Winter and I cannot wait to pull them out again this year.  That is how I know it is smart to spend the money on these items now.  ps, based on the items I viewed this morning I know I will be making an entire order on active wear.  So many good leggings, tanks, sweatshirts and tennis shoes so stay tuned.

What are you favorites?!

 

Deep V Tank

Tank [also found here on sale!] || Bralette || Jean Shorts, similar || Sandals [true to size]|| Handbag || Earrings [very lightweight] || Sunglasses

Apparently I am the girl who snaps pics of her outfit at a local, casual resturant.  Yep, that’s me haha!  But it is important to me to show you all outfits that I wear in my real life.  And this is an outfit that I wore out to get some ceviche and a marg with Ethan.  It’s easy and these earrings make it fun, right?!  Those colorful pom poms won me over! Bonus: This deep v tank is on sale now for only $18! Ive worn it lots because you can dress it up or down. [wearing a small in the tank and bralette]

I know we are in the heat of Summer right now, hence my outfit above, ha!  And even though I, for one, am not ready for it to be over–I am still really excited for warm nights on the patio and days spent on the lake–but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t also excited about the idea of new sweaters, boots and moto jackets!  That’s the beauty of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale being right around the corner.  I can spend some time picking out new items for the seasons ahead, buy them on sale and then hop right back into my swimsuit!  And when the cooler temps hit I will have new goodies to pull back out.

Sooooo, don’t forget the sale begins on Thursday and if you are a Nordstrom cardholder then you can shop the sale right away.  Trust me you want to do this because items sell SO quickly.  Apply now so you have access!  And remember, you can always choose to purchase with your Nordstrom card or one of your existing cards.

Read my full post from last year to see what type of card I have.  After having mine for a year now, I can honestly say I would recommend it and I wouldn’t suggest it to you all if I felt otherwise.

I will be covering the sale here with several posts and I will also be sharing tid bits on my Instagram page and story so be sure to stay tuned!
