Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

This is my second year shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks. I’m not rabid about it like a lot of people are, but I do like a good deal so I purchased a few things this morning to add to my fall/winter wardrobe.

The website was extra glitchy all morning, which was quite frustrating. In fact, I didn’t even think my order went through but then my items were showing up as “shipped” so I called to make sure it was processing and sure enough, customer service confirmed it had been placed.

Here are the items I picked up!

Socialite Thermal in soft rock. 
Depending on how this fits and availability, I might get this in the camo color too. Nordstrom does have free shipping/returns, but I didn’t want to go overboard and have to return a  bunch of stuff I didn’t like. Thermals are my favorite for fall, then layering under other pieces in the winter.

BP Oversized Waffle Knit Cardigan.
I really, really love this one and the price point is great! It says the small is sold out but sometimes inventory changes, so if that’s the size you need, keep checking!

1.STATE Loka Studded Bootie.

This one was my splurge. I love the rocker edge and lower heel – most booties have higher heels and that’s just not my style. I bought these in black leather, but also really like the gray color. If I don’t like them in person, I may exchange for a different color!

Thread and Supply Fleece Zip Up.

I wanted this last year but the price tag was just too hefty, even when it ran on sale at the end of the season. Luckily, it’s part of this year’s Anniversary Sale!

Things I’m considering:

 

You Can Never Go Wrong with a Band Tee

I’m a huge fan of vintage band tees and surprisingly enough, Target has a fantastic selection that changes quite frequently and they’re usually at pretty affordable price points. I’ve even found a few for my collection in the men’s section!

Here are a few of my favorites I’ve acquired over the years and links to similar products in case you want to build your collection up as well 🙂

Fleetwood Mac Tee by Free People. Sold Out but you can find it on Poshmark! (That’s where I got mine)

Guns N Roses baseball tee. Target – last season. Similar here.

Tom Petty muscle tank. Chaser brand. My style is sold out. Similar here and here.

AC/DC tee. Also from Target. Several seasons ago. Love this one instead!

Beach Boys tour tank. In stock at Target and comes in plus sizes too.

Aerosmith tour tee from Recycled Karma brands. On sale!

Spring Looks

Winter was SO LONG here in Indiana. December and January were fairly mild, then it started snowing in February and went all the way into the first week of April. That never happens here – or at least it’s never happened in my lifetime.

But now the temperatures are in the 60s during the day and I’m loving that I can start wearing my spring clothes again! Here are a few looks I’ve styled lately using some pieces from my fall wardrobe that I also think transition well into spring.


Floral top: Dottie Couture (no longer available). Jeans: She Is Boutique. Shoes: Toms via Poshmark.


Dress/Jacket: Dottie Couture. Boots: Naughty Monkey. All these items are several seasons old but you can find a good moto jacket and suede boots anywhere!

Kimono: Dottie Couture. Top: Ann Taylor Loft. Jeans: Express. Shoes: Toms.
