Every year I shop the Nordstrom anniversary sale. Or shall I say, the #nsale? I've been doing so since college. However, blogging has really changed the game over the last couple years and now more people are aware of it. That's great! It's the perfect time to preview what the coming season will look like, and it's also good for picking up basics.  But I'm going to be frank - the constant barrage of bloggers posting about it has left a bad taste in my mouth and this time around, I placed a very small order. I tried on some things in-store and nothing really wowed me. It seems like styles I already own are still on trend for Fall so I passed on several things. You have to be strategic!

I did grab this candle set by Voluspa. I'm not very discriminating with scents as long as they actually permeate the room. This is a great deal because you get three candles for less than the price of two. Otherwise, I don't buy these at full price anymore.

This BLANKNYC suede jacket is on back order, but it will ship in a few days and considering how hot it is, I won't need it for a long time anyway. This is one item I knew I wanted even before the sale began. I was immediately enamored with the spice shade as it flatters my coloring. I sized up to a large after trying on the medium. It's worth it, feels like butter!

In my quest for longer lasting lip stains, I spotted these by the brand Pixi at Target. One end is the gel stain, while the other is a gloss. I've worn both shades (pink and berry) and love them. They feel smooth on the lips and the stain lasts all day. The gloss, not so much, but it feels really moisturizing. They look much brighter in the tube than they do on my lips, so don't be fearful if you're worried about too much color.

Lately I've been thinking about incorporating more of my weekday style into my IG feed. I've refrained in the past because my weekday wardrobe is redundant and I wasn't sure anyone would find it helpful. Would you guys want to see that? It won't take over my feed but I figure two or three times per week might suffice. Let me know! Here is one I posted on Tuesday.

I'm living in my Express barcelona camisoles, which sadly seem to be discontinued. I've also been wearing my flats again to switch up Summer sandals. I feel so much more put-together when I pair anything with flats!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love this jacket but last year I hardly had the chance to wear my jackets so I don't want to get any new heavy ones. We'll see but I still have my nordstrom gf and notes just seating here.


    1. I know it's pointless to buy a ton of jackets when you live in Florida or Cali :) I don't own many jackets but the ones I have I do wear here so I'm excited to pair this one with just a tee and jeans. Just needs to be...below 65 degrees LOL.

  2. I've been turned off by the Nsale too so I feel you. I did buy one of my fave bras though as nothing that fits me ever comes in a low price tag. I tried the suede jacket you ordered too but didn't end up buying because I remember I have a longer suede jacket already and our winters are longer than our falls :P

    Enjoy your goodies girl <3

  3. Yes to weekday posts! I think they are just as helpful for ideas as more dressed up/curated outfits. Heck, even 'lounge wear' outfits because I swear I can not nail the whole cute lounge wear look. hah

  4. I would love to see you post more of your everyday outfits! Loved the one you shared last week and especially your layered necklaces!

  5. Such a love/hate thing about the anniversary sale! I do love shopping and sharing but yes, the perma-spamming for those 3 weeks is brutal. That jacket really is gorgeous! I got a similar one in another brand last year and wore it so much! Such a great piece!
