Friday Favorites: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

This week I discovered something close to cruel and unusual punishment, being almost 9 months pregnant during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale opens up to the non-Nordstrom card-holding public today! Sure, shopping shoes and accessories are options (if I go early, before my feet swell too much), but since there’s really no trying-on for this mama, I’ll mostly be sitting this one out. I’ve been browsing the sale online though, and there are a few deals I just can’t pass up—mostly basic tops and a pair of jeans that I may buy, hoping I can squeeze into them by the end of the year. And who knows, maybe they will be a little motivation to shed the baby weight.  Sweet, sweet ice cream, I’ll miss you come September!

Do me a favor and shop the sale for me? Here are my Friday Favorites for this year’s #NSALE.

Lace Up Pointy Toe FlatScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.25.56 PM

This bordeaux color is great for fall and these pointed toe, lace up flats by Halogen are right on trend.

Gibson Latte BowlsScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.37.36 PM

It’s not just clothing and shoes on sale, Nordstrom also offers discounts on many household items and gifts. This set of six, stackable bowls by Gibson comes in 3 different ombre-style colors: blue, gray and pink.

Levtex Diamond Straw BasketsScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.38.03 PM

I love these straw baskets—I can picture them in a kid’s room to hold stuffed animals and toys, or in the living room to hold throw blankets or magazines.

Ankle-Length DenimAnkle Length Jeans

I’m loving this ankle-length denim trend—its perfect for showcasing a fun, pointed heel, lace up, open-toe, or bootie. (From left to right): AG ‘The Legging Ankle Jean’ | PAIGE ‘Transcend – Verdugo’ Ankle Skinny Jean | Vigoss ‘Thompson’ Distressed Skinny Jeans

Deep-V Neck TeeScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 10.19.36 PM

This basic, deep-v neck tee would look great under a long cardigan, blazer, bomber or moto jacket. This particular look is from Lush.

Faux Leather Moto JacketScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.26.54 PM

I spent most of the last fall/winter seasons in search of the perfect moto jacket. There are lots of options offered at this year’s #NSALE. I particularly love this ‘Easy Rider’ Faux Jacket from BLANKNYC.

Crossed Front V-Neck TopScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.27.38 PM

The details of this Lush blouse give an otherwise basic piece a little pizzaz.

Suede BootiesScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.27.54 PM

Although they’re everywhere come fall and winter, it can actually be hard to find a great bootie. I like the look of this sand, suede pair from Treasure&Bond.

A Sleek Shoulder BagScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.28.10 PM

The metal details make this simple, black shoulder bag sleek and stylish. This bag by Vince Camuto is perfect for everyday or a night out.

NARS Blush PaletteScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.42.45 PM

This cheek palette by NARS has a little bit of everything you need—a rosy blush, bold color, bronzer and highlighter.

The Perfect Over The Knee BootScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.43.55 PM

Fingers crossed that these boots aren’t sold out after the pre-sale is over. This pair is from Dolce Vita.

Zip Detail Faux Leather ToteScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 9.17.17 PM

The zipper detail adds interest to this faux leather tote from B.P.—just the right size to carry all the things you have to have with you.

A Plaid ShirtdressScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 9.17.44 PM

Switch-up this plaid look by adding a belt, topping it with a moto jacket, or pairing it with an ankle bootie. This dress is from Caslon.

Topshop Zip Pocket CoatScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 9.18.44 PM

I like the masculine, straight lines of this simple, zip pocket coat from Topshop.

A Bold, Statement WatchScreen Shot 2016-07-21 at 9.19.05 PM

This faux leather watch from B.P. is $15.90 during the #NSALE.

Happy Shopping, Friends.

See you next Friday! xx, Devon
