Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Zella Picks

Zella is by far my favorite workout brand. The brand is actually owned by Nordstrom so they always have great deals during the Anniversary sale. My go-to leggings are Zella and I've been wearing them on repeat all of quarantine. So, I will for sure be stocking up on some of these pieces. Right now my favorite pair of leggings is the studio pocket 7/8 legging. But all of their leggings are fantastic! 

I've listed some additional Zella picks below because there is just too many choices! 

seamless dip dye workout top | I have a seamless top from Zella and I love it! Can't wait to order this one for fall. 
pink live in leggings | Loving this light pink color legging. Would be a fun way to mix it up from traditional black leggings. 
jogger pants | These would be perfect for running errands or lounging around the house. 
splits ribbed tank | Love this workout top. Looks a little cropped and comes in multiple colors. Around $30 so a great deal!
soft longline sports bra | This sports bra looks so comfy! Plus it is $31 so it is a great deal. Would be perfect for workouts or for around the house. 

I'll be doing another post on athletic wear, but I for sure recommend Zella as a starting point for your active wear purchases during the sale! Do you love Zella? Let me know in the comments!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Under $50

There are so many great pieces on sale for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are under $50! This year I've noticed a lot of great pieces for under $100 or under $50. I love this because there are a lot more affordable options for any girl on a budget. I've highlighted a few of my top picks under $50 in today's post. Currently I'm loving this J. Crew camo tee. It would be perfect to wear year round and is under $30. Such a steal! One of my favorite Beauty brands also has some sets for under $50 included in the sale. I love this Supergoop set as well as this Supergoop Defense Refresh spray set. Another top item on my list this year is this turtleneck sweater sweater. It looks super soft and comes in a ton of colors. 

I've listed a ton of other great pieces that are under $50 below as well!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Under $100

It's that time of year again! Welcome to my first post in my Nordstrom Anniversary sale coverage this year. I have to be honest and say I am not that impressed with the sale items this year. A lot of it is the same as it was last year or just nothing new and exciting. But, I am still planning to shop the sale and I still want you to scoop up the good deals that are out there! 

For today's blogpost I'm sharing items all under $100! There will be a bigger post of items under $50 as most of the items I am liking are actually under $50 which is awesome! Some great price points and pieces this year for more affordable prices. 

A major highlight in this post are these Adidas Swift Run sneaker. I love these sneakers! I got a pair last year from the sale and I haven't stopped wearing them since quarantine. Perfect for working out, traveling, or taking the dog for a walk. This pair comes in 3 different colors so lots of options. There is also a great pair of Madwell jeans for under $100. I am also loving the beauty selection this year. Consistently I feel like the beauty section has gotten better and better during the sale each year. Particularly eyeing this YSL lipstick set set.

OOTD: Birthday Outfit

*Belated birthday outfit post coming at you! Here is what I wore for my 25th birthday. I still can't believe I'm 25. Half the time I forget how old I am to be honest. But here we are! For my birthday this year we went on a little vacay to Naples, FL. My boyfriend's parents have a house there so no worries it was very safe. Didn't use any rental cars, didn't stay in a hotel, and just kind of hung out. It was so nice. Especially since restaurants weren't open in IL I got to actually eat a real meal at the lovely Truluck's in Naples. 

As for my outfit I wore this adorable LSF x Target collab dress. It is sadly sold out now but I've linked similar options below. Also be sure to check your local Target store for stock. I paired it with my go-to Jack Rogers sandals of course. Then my classic Gucci crossbody bag. Top it off with my purple Lele Sadoughi headband and the look is complete. I was so happy to have such a great birthday, even though you could say it was a quarantine birthday. 

Where it's from: 
Dress: Loveshackfancy x Target 
Shoes: Jack Rogers
Headband: Lele Sadoughi (similar)
Bag: Gucci
Necklace: Lovemeknots 
Location: Naples, FL

Stoney Clover Lane Sequin Inspiration

New patches are here! I am obsessed with these sequin Stoney Clover Lane patches. They look good on both the Tropical Collection pouches plus the original colors. The Acai are of course my favorite. I mean that purple is gorgeous. But I am also loving Lagoon and Mango. I put together a few possible combos for you to get some pouch inspiration! There are so many cute combos you can make with these letters. They are larger so they don't fit on everything but still so cute. 

What is your favorite combo? Let me know in the comments!

OOTD: Perfectly Pink

This dress is what I like to call perfectly pink! Hello it is gorgeous! I love the puffy sleeve detail and the flouncy skirt. It is any girly girls dream dress I think. The best part is it is super affordable. 

I've been living for these Loveshackfancy x Target dresses. When I learned they were doing a collab I knew it was gonna be amazing. Plus I knew it was going to hurt my wallet. Luckily the dresses were $45-$60 so it didn't hurt the wallet too much. Now I have a whole new wardrobe of LSF dresses for a lot less than their main line. 

This dress is surprisingly super flattering! The puffy sleeves are balanced out by the smaller skirt and bow detail. With a fun floral print this dress is perfect for any occasion. Here I dressed it up a little bit with a pair of Tory Burch wedge espadrilles. 


To complete the look I of course wore my go-to pearl Lele Sadoughi headband. This is my most worn headband and was the first one I purchased. It is my tried and true. If you are going to buy one Lele Sadoughi headband make this be the one! 

I completed the look with a stack of Shop Sew Cute Style bracelets. If you didn't know I started selling the bracelets I've been making on Instagram. They are super fun for summer or year round. I love stacking them and creating different combos with other jewelry pieces I own. Be sure to check out my shop for more details!
