I know, I know. I’m not a fashion blogger. Far from it, actually. When it comes to clothes I regularly live in 2 different camps: comfy loungewear/workout clothes or “I need to look put together” for when I go out. Both of these categories will have one trait in common if they’re in my wardrobe and that is comfort. Even if I’m trying to look super done up and cute, I still want to feel comfortable and be able to move with ease, which is why most of my clothing choices are basics that I can easily dress up or down.
Every year I look at the Nordstrom anniversary sale primarily because so many bloggers that I follow keep dishing out their recommendations and I end up intrigued. This year, I decided to look on my own, without much influence from those I follow on Instagram, just to see if there was anything that jumped out at me as something that would end up on my personal wishlist, and much to my surprise there was a solid handful of items that I would love to add to my cart.
In the images below you’ll see all of my choices. I managed to find several things that fit right into my typical wardrobe choices like leggings and inexpensive basic Ts, but I also found a few things that I don’t own that I want, like the hoodie with a wider neck. Does anyone else feel like regular hoodies are a little too constricting around your neck area?
I’m learning that I am very drawn to the colored moto jacket, as evidenced by my two choices below. There’s just something so perfect about being able to wear jeans and a T, and by adding this brilliantly colored jacket you’ve automatically dressed it up into something fabulous. I seriously wouldn’t be opposed to having a moto jacket in 5 or 6 different colors.
Of course, I had to take a stroll through the beauty sales, and while there was a lot that didn’t interest me, there were several items that are 100% worth it. First, the Elemis cleanser that I use regularly is available in a jumbo size for a killer price. I’m still working my way through my first bottle that I started using in December, so a little goes a LONG way. Believe it or not, I’m a big fan of Makeup Eraser cloths, as they actually do what they’re supposed to, and you can get a 2 pack on a pretty deep discount. Lastly, there’s a great trio of Stila’s glitter and glow liquid eyeshadows that are basically all I want to wear on my eyes lately. I own 4 of them and am truly anticipating a Christmas wishlist with at least 5 more shades on it. They’re wonderful, especially if you like sparkle as much as I do.
All of my picks for the sale are down below, and there’s a little something for everyone. Enjoy!
