Today is the day! I get to shop the Nordstrom sale! I look forward to this every year, but if I’m being honest, I’m not as into it as I usually am. I really don’t “need” anything, and I wasn’t blown away by the clothes included this year, but that doesn’t mean I won’t treat myself just a little:)
When I shop the sale I typically stick to pieces that I will wear on a day-to-day basis: work attire, athletic wear, and cute basics that I can throw on and be comfortable in while chasing kids around. I sometimes splurge on a few higher end pieces that I know will be in my wardrobe for years. Finally, I always shop the beauty section because I’m a beauty product junkie!
The sale is a great opportunity to get some early Christmas shopping done. I love buying things for friends and family that I can store away until December. I also sometimes pick out one or two things for myself that either my husband or mom can buy and save to give me as a gift!
My biggest tip when shopping the sale is to have a wish list made in advance. Things sell out QUICKLY once the sale goes live, so you want your cart ready to go so you don’t miss out! Some of the items on my wish list are already sold out, but I’m still posting about them in hopes they get restocked…wishful thinking!
I’ve already shared my BEST OF BEAUTY in a previous post this week. Be sure to check that out as well. Today I am sharing items that I already have in my wardrobe and love, as well as the items I have on my wish list.
Here are the things I already own and love:
Anything by Barefoot Dreams should be at the top of your list! I have two of these cardigans, and I have my eye on another one (plus the blanket!) It’s the softest thing you will ever put on!
I bring my Hydroflask with me to work everyday. It holds 32 ounces and keeps my water cold all day!
I bought these sunglasses earlier in the summer and wear them all the time!
My go to running/workout shoe is the Adidas UltraBoost. I have them in a light pink color.
Spanx leather leggings are a staple. I wear them all winter long. They suck you in and look so cute with booties or boots.
I have this UppaBaby stroller system for my kids. It RARELY goes on sale, so if you are in that phase of life, I highly recommend snatching it up.
A good pair of CZs is something that is hard to find. I have these and love them!
I own this cardigan in red. It’s one of our school colors, so I wear it to work all the time. I want another one this year in this blush color.
I got this tee in black a few months ago and wear it all the time. This is one piece that is currently sold out, but keep checking back for a possible restock!
In my opinion you can never have too many blankets! I have them in every room of our house. This is the one we keep in our living room. We always end up fighting over who gets to use it because it’s so soft…maybe I should get another one!
These leggings are amazing. I’d put them in the same category as my Lulu ones, but at a fraction of the cost. I have several pair. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I live in leggings!
Now on to the items I have on my wish list. There is NO WAY I’m getting all of this (my hubby would kill me!), but these are the things I would get if I had unlimited funds. As I mentioned above, a few of these items are currently out of stock, but you never know what the fashion gods have in store:)
Hope you have your wish list ready and that you are able to snag a few items you have your eye on! I’d love to hear what you are interested in this year. Leave me a comment here or on Instagram! Thanks for reading and happy shopping! XO
