Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

The N-sale is offically live, and I have rounded up some of my top picks in a variety of categories! The sale is opening on a tiered basis, with only top card holders having access these first few days. Early access for cardholders opens next Monday, which is when I will be placing my order! I hope to have my try on added to this post before the sale opens up for public access! As I mentioned previously, a few things have changed with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. Everyone can see the sale items now, with the ability to then save your favorite items to a wish list. Items are already selling out on early access. So, if you have an item you want, my suggestion would be to add your color and size to your wishlist. Then, set an alarm for when you are able to access the sale and place your order right away! Nordstrom has a great return policy, and with the ‘quick’ nature of this sale, I would suggest having your order ready to go so you don’t miss out on your most wanted items!

I do make a small commission whenever you choose to purchase through my links. It is the same as if a person in a retail store would assist you and receive commission (zero cost to you! 🙂 ) It means SO much to me that you trust me and choose to shop through me. Your support is what keeps this blog and my business going! Truly, I cannot say thank you enough!

July Top Sellers

Well I am late to the game with this post. I cannot believe we are already halfway through August! The school year is going to be here before we know it. Before we officially begin the downhill slide to September, I figured I better share my July top sellers! Quite a few of these items were from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but some tried and true Amazon favorites made the cut, too! 

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

These leggings were the top seller of the month by a LANDSLIDE. I am so excited that you all took advantage of them while they were on sale. I regretted not purchasing them all year (not even kidding). While we likely won’t see the NSale prices again, I will be sure to update you if I see them marked down at all! 

Top // Leggings // Shoes // Sunglasses

Colorblock Cardigan

This cardigan is more than just a July top seller. It has been one of the number one items all summer long! I love that you all love it as much as I do. It comes in other color combinations, I love the blue option and the neutral combo. If you have had your eye on it, now is the perfect time to snag it. Those chilly fall mornings will be here before you know it!

Cardigan // Tank Top // Jeans // Sandals // Tote

Striped Romper

This romper has been one of my favorite purchases this summer. It is SO comfortable, and fits amazing if you have a long torso! I wore it when we were sightseeing in Boston, and it was so cute but functional for all of the walking we did. I sized up to an XL for added length, but could have done my normal size large as well. It also comes in a tee version and off the shoulder style!

Romper // Purse // Tennis Shoes // Sunglasses

Lounge Tee

This item was another hit from the NSale, and with good reason. I love the oversized fit, and how much length it has. As a tall girl, it is always so frustrating when tees and tanks that seem to work for everyone else fit me poorly. This tee comes in multiple colors, and gets fantastic reviews! If you are looking for a good basic white tee, this is it!

Accent Pillow

This pillow was a fun surprise item to see you all snagging during the NSale! I love the cute pom details, and it would work in almost any room. You know you’re all grown up when you get excited about throw pillows, am I right!?

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

This cardigan was a splurge item, but let me tell you that it is WORTH IT. So soft, but thick and the most amazing quality. I have heard people say that there really isn’t another item to compare these cardigans to, and I get it. If you are looking to treat yourself, this is worth every penny!

Cardigan // Henley // Shorts

Wrap Dress

Truly, one of my favorite things about sharing items from Amazon is that they don’t go out of stock like items from other retailers. This dress is one I shared back in April, and a bunch of you snagged it a few weeks ago. It is SO flattering and how perfect is this color for fall!?

Dress // Shoes

Were any of the July top sellers items that you snagged!? I always love to do these posts to see what you all enjoy the most. Be sure to check out my June top sellers and May top sellers for other popular items!

Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday you guys, we made it through the week! I am off today, and we are heading to the lake this afternoon. I don’t know why, but I kept thinking we were a day ahead all week long, so I am SO glad it was a short week! Jackson turns F-I-V-E tomorrow, and I cannot believe it. He was adamant about having a party, so I am doing as much prep as possible this morning so we have things ready for his bash on Sunday! I cannot wait to share his theme. The boys are SO into parties and have been counting down to wearing their outfits on Sunday! Otherwise, keep reading for my weekly roundup, and be sure to head to my Instagram to enter a Target Giveaway!

Colorblock Sweater

One of my favorite items from this weekly roundup. I feel like if the pumpkin spice latte invented a sweater, this would be it! 😉 We have already had some brief previews of fall weather here in Minnesota, and now that I get to dress more casual for work, I knew I needed this sweater. It is so perfect for those cozy fall days, but ALSO how cute does it pair with shorts!? Long sleeves and shorts will forever be one of my favorite combos!

Sweater // Similar Shorts // Phone Case (code stangandco for 10% off!)

Rainbow Dress

You all went crazy over the rainbow dress I shared this week! I have a blog post up with more shots and views of it that you can read here. It runs true to size, but if you are between sizes, I would go up one as it does not have stretch. It is fully lined, and is slightly shorter in the front. With code JU5 you can snag an extra $5 off! This is one of those dresses that just feels magical! I will be sharing a post next week on different ways to style on it, so be sure to check back for that!

The Coziest Cardigan

I have wanted to get one of these cardigans for years, and I finally took advantage during the #nsale and fell in love! It is SO good you guys. The fabric is beyond soft, but also feels durable and so high quality. It really is hard to explain, but I have never felt anything like it and it is still on sale for a few more days! Sizes and colors keep going in and out of stock, but just keep refreshing as returns are coming in lots!

Cardigan // Tank Top // Jeans // Sandals // Bag

Sunshine Vibes

This post was popular for a fun reason-it was shot by my boys! I have mastered taking photos with my tripod, because in all honesty that is the easiest option. I hate asking people for help, so I self shoot as much as possible! But this week I decided to hand the camera over to my boys who are 3 and 5 (tomorrow!) and see what happens. And they do such a good job! I adjust all the settings beforehand, but they learned so quickly how to get the object of the photo in focus! Having them help is so much fun, and they really seem to love it to and feel so grown up. More photography by Lincoln coming your way, so stay tuned!

Casual Office Look

Another photo courtesy of Lincoln 😉 I have been loving getting to dress down for work. We still have SOME standards of course, but  jeans and cute tees are fair game! I have gotten some questions on these shoes lately, too. They are SO comfortable and perfect for walking in!

Tee // Jeans // Bag // Shoes // Sunnies

Lavender and Eucalyptus Bridal Shower

I shared all of the details from the Lavender and Eucalyptus bridal shower that I hosted for my sister in law a few weeks ago! It was such a fun shower to pull together, I love her color scheme for her wedding and it was fun to put those details into the shower. I can also never say no to a mimosa bar! Head here to see all of the details!

Friday Favorites: No. 3 Mask and Spiked Seltzer

Happy Friday friends! I haven’t been around for a few weeks, not on purpose! I swear when summer rolls around, sitting down to type becomes nearly impossible. Of course, today the Nordstrom Sale is FINALLY open to the public, so I couldn’t resist sharing at least a few of my favorites! I have a few other things I have been wanting to share (like the Beautycounter no. 3 mask!), as well, so keep reading for this week’s favorites. I am keeping it short and sweet this week!

Beautycounter No. 3 Mask

My skin has completely changed since I started using Beautycounter products. the No. 3 charcoal mask is one of my absolute favorite items! It draws out oil as it dries, and you can actually see dark spots where more oil has come out. This is one of my favorite parts of my nighttime routine! If you want to try Beautycounter products for yourself you can shop here!

White Claw

These have been some of my FAVORITE drinks this summer! They are a spiked seltzer, and come in the lightest and most refreshing flavors. I love the lime and grapefruit, but really like them all. They only have 100 calories per drink, too, which makes them the perfect summer treat when you are hanging out at the lake!

Cute Amazon Finds

With Prime Day earlier this week (who else received that failure to load page with a picture of a dog a MILLION times?), I was able to check out some of their fashion, and I continue to be SO impressed by what they have to offer. I grabbed this shirt in a few colors, which is basically an exact dupe of this UO top for less than half the price. And this swimsuit I shared a few weeks ago is one of the CUTEST I have seen. I love that Amazon has become a place I can trust for cute (and affordable!) fashion.

Nordstrom Sale Finds

I couldn’t resist sharing a FEW items from the #nsale now that it is open to the public. As much as I wouldn’t have minded shopping this past week, I can never justify getting a credit card, basically for the purpose of ONE sale. But now that it is open to the public, I am loving this gorgeous lavender cardigan. This pullover looks so cozy, and I am planning on scooping up this blazer for work. It comes in a lot of colors and is under $40! I have been seeing this dress style with the knot all over, and I love the look of this one. This striped long sleeved tee has been a cult favorite, and it is back in stock this year and in LOTS of cute colors. These faux leather leggings have gotten RAVE reviews, and this moto jacket is SO cute, I am in love with the hooded detail! Everyone that I know loves these leggings, and they come in a few colors and rarely go on sale. And last but not least, this cardigan WILL sell out and is so soft you won’t believe it and is worth every last penny.

Toddler Pajamas

You guys, I just had a very sad moment of realization that Jackson is well into the 5T size. That means that this is my last year of really getting to dress him in precious pajamas during the holidays. Insert ME SOBBING. I know they still make cute options in the boys section, but I know my heart is going to shatter into a million pieces when we say goodbye to the toddler section. My boys have actually been sleeping in oversized t-shirts or with no clothes at all this summer, because #itshot. But I know they will need to start wearing pajamas again once it starts to cool down, and there are some CUTE styles out right now! This taco pair might be the best thing I have ever seen. I love these classic stripes! Aren’t these crayon jammies adorable? And slowly but surely, Halloween jammies are coming out, and I am forever a sucker for the mummie pajamas, and I love this cute space man set, too!

Have a great weekend everyone!
