Everything I Purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale :: I Adore What I Love Blog :: #iadorewhatiloveSo many of you have asked what I’ve already purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and today, I’m excited to share with you all of my awesome buys! As I mentioned in my last post about the cutest JACKETS to snatch up now {which, if you haven’t checked it out yet, read the post HERE because there are so many great coats that I featured and now that the sale is public, EVERYONE can shop!},  I actually despise buying clothes for winter while we’re still enjoying the daily grind of sweet sweet summer. But, I do it anyways because this sale is THAT good! And I’d rather buy and save NOW then buy the same stuff later and spend a lot more! You feel me, right?! Basically, if I’m doing it – you should be too. Because trust me, it makes sense. Not to mention that other reason of items selling out at the speed of light so you want to buy them before you’re {for lack of a better acronym} SOL – insert smily with a wink and tongue sticking out emoji here! Ha.

Before I share all my purchases with you guys – my internet faves – I’d like to make one thing clear: I’m a big believer that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! I mean, I wouldn’t be a fashion blogger if I had a different stance on that, right? But I just wanted to mention that because even though I already own these things, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t. You absolutely should! Thus, why am I sharing them with you!!!! I just love spreading the deal love on quality merchandise!! So go ahead and shop away… I will be very very flattered =) 

Let’s get to it!!

OMGGGGG. Sock booties. I’ve tried on a million and one pairs since I saw the trend first pop up in stores and I have never liked them on me. Until this pair. Something about them made me look longer and leaner, as opposed to the opposite which I had been seeing with the other brands I was trying on. They come in Tan Suede {which actually looks blush to me!} and Rust Suede, in addition to the Black Suede pair that I bought. Shop these slimming trendy booties HERE.

Can’t leave this little red hot number out!! For me, it was love at first sight of the shoulder ruffles. Like, HOT, right?! But guess what, there’s more! You can DETACH the zippered sleeves for summer =) Plus, I need more going out tops and this totally fits the bill. Also comes in 4 other solid colors plus one adorable print. Shop it HERE.

Literally for the past 2 years, 3 months, and 5 days {‼️} we haven't left each other's sides... And he loves me. A LOT.  Maybe as much as I love him. So I think we both felt it. He did great at drop-off but these are the moments as a mom you wish you could just skip! At least I do. Because while proud doesn't even begin to describe the feeling I had this morning, it was also scary and sad and brought out all the emotions! 🥰 Parenting is hard!
So here's to all the moms out there who are in the same boat as me today or in the coming weeks. WE GOT THIS 🙏🏼😘 Xox
