My Nsale 2020 Wish List!


Color-block Cardi, Snake Booties, Blazer, Scarf, Skirt, Jeans, White Booties, BB Cosmetic Set, OTS Sweater


Hi friends! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was actually more social than usual (while still being safe of course). Two of my best friends have been really good about social distancing so we've been seeing each other somewhat often but we're usually outside. On Friday, we spent the evening hanging out at the pool with drinks and food. It was so nice! Saturday was just a really lazy day, Steven and I spent most of it around the house. Sunday, we saw my cousin and her boyfriend for the first time since COVID started and we went for a long walk around a lake near our house. It's nice finding activities where you can see people and still feel comfortable!

I posted a poll on my stories yesterday asking if y'all wanted to see a book review or my Nsale wish list and most of you voted for the wish list! I'll still get my book review up in the next week or so. Even though I am just "insider" status meaning I can shop the sale starting Weds, I was actually invited by our local Nordstrom to shop the sale in-store starting today. Not entirely sure if I actually will since I don't know how comfortable I am with shopping in stores. I'm sure they're taking all the precautions its just my comfort level! The top 2 items on my wish list are this Madewell color-block cardigan and also the snake-print version of my favorite Vince Camuto booties. I'm not typically super into color-blocking but I LOVE that this cardigan is all neutrals. 

One other thing I saw on the site this weekend that I didn't include in my wish list above is this suede jacket. While I do have my BlankNYC suede jacket that I love, it is a little stiff & more cropped. I want one that fits well over knits and this one caught my eye because the suede looks more flexible and soft.

What are some items on your wish list? Have you already started shopping the sale?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Items I Own & Love


Cardi (exact, new colors), Tee (exact), Jeans (exact), Booties (almost identical), Hat (similar)

Happy Wednesday friends! I'm going to jump right into today's post because it's going to be a longer one. I did a poll on Instagram a few weeks ago and a lot of y'all said you are still shopping the sale this year so I'm planning to cover it as much as I usually would. I definitely don't plan on purchasing as much as I have in previous years--I really want to focus on a few closet staples that can be worn multiple ways like the ones I feature in today's post. These items have gotten a ton of wear and were well worth the investment!

Outside of today's post, I plan on doing a Wish List post on Monday and then a "What I Bought" post once my items come in. I'm going to try to do the pick-up-in store option for most items but anything else I will just have shipped directly. I, personally, don't plan to do any shopping in stores. That being said, I'm not sure when my items will come in for me to do that post but I'm hoping to have it up by 8/17 or 8/18, just in time for the sale opening up to everyone! 

If you aren't sure of all the dates, below is a little snippet from their site.

Okay, now jumping into the good stuff. After checking out the preview on their website, it looks like MANY of the hot ticket items that I bought last year are in stock again this year with some very slight variations. For example, they brought back an almost identical version of the Vince Camuto boots that y'all loved last year. Below, I'm going to share some items that they are either bringing back this year or items that they are bringing back in a very similar version. I'll make sure to link to the new version (or exact same product in some cases) under my photos below. Pro tip--if you plan on purchasing any of these items, make sure to create an Anniversary Sale wish list so that check out is super quick & easy when you get access.
