The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public today!! Woooo! If you’ve been eyeing anything from my last post, today is the day to pull that trigger. I tried to reel myself in this year, and to be honest, I think I’m going to place another order to really take advantage of these prices. That being said, I really wanted to focus on items I could wear now, or soon. Are there amazing sweater options? Yes. Do I need the same sweater in 5 different colors? No. It totally depends what’s in your closet!
I started with this killer one piece swimsuit. It’s perfect for friend’s bachelorette weekend in Wisconsin next Friday, especially since it’s a part of the sale! I ordered a 6, because there’s nothing worse than trying to squeeze yourself into a bathing suit ? The fit is great, but it’s definitely a sexy one piece… and I’m not complaining! I paired it with this flowy and super versatile maxi skirt (XS) to tone down that low neckline a little. Love both so much!
Next, I decided to order this James Perse dress because Everday Pursuits raves about his dresses. She got this one, but it seemed too long for me… but now I kinda want to try it. The material is super soft and really hugs your curves. It’s almost like the perfect mix of sexy and comfortable!
This floral dress isn’t a part of the sale, but these booties are! I always struggle with finding the right booties to wear with dresses in the fall, and these totally fit the bill! There’s a small heel, but nothing crazy. They’re super comfortable. The color is beautiful in person. Yes yes yes!
And then I rounded out my order with a new strapless bra and my favorite Hanky Panky thongs. If you’ve never tried Hanky Panky’s, now is the time! I know photos of undies might be a little taboo, but they are seriously THE BEST. Stock up now! And lastly, even though they aren’t a part of the sale, I added the magic Acne Eliminating Pads by Dr. Dennis Gross to my order because, well… they are magical. Honestly, nothing has ever worked as well as these. I can be prone to breakouts when I’m stressed, and these nip them right in the bud. The best.
To be honest, I’m glad I played it safe at first, but I don’t think I fully took advantage of the sale. Now that it’s gone public, I’m thinking about placing another order with OTK boots, a sweater or two, a faux leather jacket, and maybe a pair of jeans. What are you getting this year??
