Everything I Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

All the bloggers have their own ways on how to go about sharing their picks for the #NSale… and while that’s all great and dandy, I am going to take a different route and tell you everything that I ACTUALLY bought. Because let’s be honest, if I decided to spend my own money on something, it’s going to be PERFECT. And by perfect, I mean, the right price, the right color, the right fabric, the right neckline, the right pattern, the right length, the right fit, and on top of all of those things – COMFORTABLE. You feel me??

Basically, I fully believe in everything I bought so much so that I needed these items in my own closet!!! And lately, I don’t buy anything unless it’s a HELL YEAH!!! Meaning, if I try something on, and I only kind of like it, I’m not taking it home. Nope. Those days are long gone. Might sound cheesy, but my money is precious and if I’m going to spend it, it’s going to be on something GREAT. Something I will get tons and tons of wear and use out of, something I might wear and use for more than one season, something that I am absolutely, wholeheartedly IN LOVE WITH. Even if it’s on major sale, it still has to be a HELL YEAHHH!

So without further adieu, check out allll my #NSale PURCHASES {notice how I didn’t just say picks} – for myself AND for my kids – below!

  1. Leopard Waterproof Hidden Wedge Sneaker – did you catch that?? THESE ARE WATERPROOF!!!!! #enoughsaid
  2. Charlotte Tilbury The Pillow Talk Full Size Lip Kit – literally for any skin tone, this kit is fit to look good on everybody!!
  3. SPANX® Faux Leather Leggings – actually bought these at the #NSale two years ago and I still love them and wear them all the time. Best investment ever!!
  4. Block Heel Sandal – gorgeous suede sandal that works from day to night!
  5. Sport Tank – less sport tank, more chic tank. Perfect for summer nights out on the town, under a leather jacket in the fall, or a blazer in the winter!
  6. Green Leopard Print Tee – only $15 for the sale!!! This will go fast – hurry hurry!!
  7. Studded Loafer – a little work-ish but A LOT cute and timeless and easy and fun!
  8. Lace Trim Satin Camisole Top – BEST FIT for a cami tee that I’ve ever tried on before!! So classic and timeless, too!
  9. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo – I use the Brow Wiz stick and needed another. It happened to be on the sale coupled with the brow gel – you’re basically getting two products for the price of one!!
  10. rag & bone Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans – needed new black jeans. These hug all my curves in the right places!
  11. The North Face Water Repellent Reversible Down Jacket – Brody is so excited about this!! It will be his winter jacket so get used to seeing it a lot! Not too puffy and reversible… such a good buy!!
  12. Camo Joggers – every boy needs a pair of camo joggers in his closet! They go with everything!
  13. Snoopy Print Hooded Sweatshirt – comfy and cute!!
  14. Patagonia Nano Puff® Quilted Water Resistant Jacket – for Levi in the fall. It doesn’t have a hood but is warm enough for winter days too.
  15. Nike Dry Elite Stripe Athletic Shorts – Brody recently starting asking to wear mesh shorts. I get it, they’re so comfortable! The sale price on these is amazing – couldn’t pass them up!!
  16. Red Nike Running Shoes – these will be Brody’s fall gym shoes. LOVE that they’re red and he said they’re comfy! Yay!
  17. The North Face Reversible Water Repellent Heatseeker(TM) Jacket – winter jacket for Levi that I bought in a little bigger size and I’m hoping it fits him next year too! Getting wear out of it for two seasons would be ideal!
  18. Nike Slip-On Sneaker – slip-ons are life! Especially for a toddler!!!

Didn’t I do good, you guys?! I am so pumped and excited about everything and if you follow me on Instagram, you know from my stories that I’ve already worn a few new purchases out on the town this past weekend! Anyways, if you’re eyeing any of these things for yourself or for your kids, I have a feeling it’s all going to go super fast so you should probably get on it now!!! And if these things don’t sell out, prices on them will go up on August 5th!!!!!

Before I sign off, I just want to let you know my reasoning for not buying a single sweater or sweatshirt for myself… I can’t think about dressing for the cold yet!!!!! Plus, I have SO many adorable sweaters and sweatshirts in my closet from last season and I plan to rewear rewear rewear. It’s called me being practical. Nothing wrong with that, right?!
