Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: My Wishlist

In today's Nordstrom Sale post I'm sharing the items on my Nordstrom Sale wishlist. I get to shop the sale August 10th so I am anxiously waiting to pick up my items. 

ADIDAS SWIFT RUNNERS | I bought a pair of these sneakers last year and I've pretty much worn them everyday during quarantine. They are perfect for running errands, walking the dog, or just life. The perfect shoe just to thrown on and they are so so comfortable. This sneaker fits me TTS so I plan on getting the size I got last year!

ADIDAS STAN SMITH | My Stan Smith sneakers are *ratchet* so I am excited to replace them with these! Plus I think these are more fall appropriate. Great for pairing with jeans or even dresses and skirts. 

BAREFOOT DREAMS CARDIGAN | Last year I got the circle cardigan so this year I have my eye on this cheetah print option. I love cheetah print for fall so this is a no brainer. So soft and comfy. Great for travel or just for lounging around. Dress it up with a pair of jeans and boots for a more elevated look! 

ZELLA LEGGINGS | I cannot emphasize enough that Zella leggings are my favorite. They are such great quality for the price. The best leggings I've found and worn. Great if you don't want to pay hefty price tags from other athletic brands. 

TWEED HANDBAG | I've been wanting a handbag from this brand for a while. I had my eye on one this past fall but never pulled the trigger. This time I may just have to get this one! So feminine and perfect for fall or winter. 

YSL LIPSTICK SET  | I have my eye on this YSL lipstick set. It comes with so many colors and I love YSL beauty products. 

MAROON HAT | Normally I am not a hat girl, but this one just looks gorgeous! Would be so cute paired with sweaters or dresses for fall. I see it completing a great pumpkin patch look. 

CAMO TEE | A great price point for this camo tee! Love the pink trim which makes it a little more feminine. 

PURPLE TURTLENECK SWEATER | You all know I love purple and pink. So when I saw this sweater it went on my wishlist! Love the color and their sweaters are known for being super soft. 

STRIPE CARDIGAN | Another cute sweater option is this stripe cardigan. Love all of the colors. Fall but make it colorful! 

ATHLETIC JACKET | I don't have an athletic style jacket like this. A great dupe for the Lululemon jacket that I will probably never spend the money on! Maybe this will motivate me to go to the gym. Probably not but it is worth a try! 

GOLD BELT | I am always on the hunt for a gold belt. This one is reversible to black so it is two in one which is amazing! I pretty much wear a gold belt everyday so it is always nice to mix it up. 

RUST SWEATER | This puff sleeve sweater is so pretty and super affordable! The fabric looks super flattering so excited to try this out. 

BRUSH SET | I've recently invested in T3 Micro hair tools so only suiting that I get this brush set! We'll have to see what they are like in person. But I am liking them so far.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Items I Own

It's almost Anniversary Sale time! For today's post I am going over all of the items I own that are included in this year's sale. A lot of items from last year are back so if you missed out last year now is your chance to pick them up. Below I've highlighted some of my top items included in this year's sale that I already own. I tried to give sizing information as well. For reference I am 5ft, usually an XXS-XS and a 00 or 24. 

Spanx faux leather leggings | These leggings are always a hot item! Every year they sell out so quickly. I purchased them last year and I loved them for fall and winter. Great to layer with oversize sweaters or longer tops. Mine are TTS and I wear an XS. They are bit long for me but we make it work! If you are taller you should be fine. 

Zella high waist studio 7/8 legging | My go-to pair of Zella leggings are included in this year again. I got this pair last year and I will probably be buying a backup pair this year! They are nice and thick so no worries about them being see through. Mine have held up amazingly. No pilling or signs of wear! Mine are TTS and I wear an XS. 

Barefoot dreams cozy lite circle cardigan | One of my favorite pieces from last year is my Barefoot Dreams cardigan. These ALWAYS sell out so quickly. Last year mine didn't ship out because it got oversold. Then I was able to find it in my store in the exact size I needed. I got lucky! Mine is true to size I wear the XS/ S size. It's a great piece for traveling or for lounging around the house. I like bringing it on trips to wear in the hotel room. Also great for cold plane rides! 

Tory Burch bag | My Tory Burch bag from a few years ago is one of my favorite fall bags. This style was similar to one they had last year. For this year they changed it up a bit so it isn't this exact shape. But, I still think this year's bag will be a top seller! It comes in both black and brown. Would make a great basic bag. 

Stan Smith sneaker | Stan Smith sneakers are a great basic to have! Mine are kind of gross so I am looking forward to upgrading to this new pair. This pair is also more fall appropriate in my opinion. I find these can look a little bulky depending on the style so we will see how these look once the sale goes live! 

Beauty Blender set | During the sale is a great time to get a new set of Beauty Blenders. Last year I picked up a very similar set to this one. I use these to blend my foundation or makeup. Great for any beauty lover! I also think this would be a great Christmas gift to pick up now. 

Briogeo hair set | Briogeo hair products are some of my favorites. I have most of the products in this fun little set! Their Repair Despair mask is amazing. For sure a need to help revive your hair. This set is also great because you can try these products out without spending money on the full size products. 

Pillow Talk Charlote Tilbury set | This Pillow Talk lipstick is my new favorite. Chances are I am wearing it in most of my pictures. It is a great neutral pink shade that I think can work for a lot of skin tones. This set comes with a fun lip gloss too! 

Crop faux leather pants | I have a very similar pair of faux leather pants from Halogen's Atlantic Pacific collection. I love these for fall and winter. They are great to mix up your jeans or other work wear. Also like them for more casual looks too. 

Barbour quilted jacket | If you didn't know I work for Barbour! So I have a lot of Barbour jackets. This is a great piece to pick up if you want to try out the brand! Great price and a great classic Barbour silhouette and look. You'll have it forever. 

Slip silk pillowcase | For more of a home item this Slip silk pillow case is great. Love these for more of a luxe pillow case. Silk pillow cases are said to help with your skin and hair so I am here for it. 

T3 Micro curling iron | I love T3 Micro hair tools. I bought this curling iron a few years ago from the sale. I also have their blow dryer which is also included in the sale! Their blow dryer is fabulous. I've seen a notice in my hair using that vs. my old cheap blow dryer. 

Drybar dry shampoo | My holy grail dry shampoo is this Drybar dry shampoo. It saves my hair on a weekly basis!

Hopefully this post was helpful in learning more about these products. I have a lot of pieces that are included in this years sale so I can help give a lot more details! Do you have any questions on the sale? Let me know in the comments.

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

When is your birthday? Let me know in the comments below!
