Nordstrom Anniversary Public Access

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings / Newer Free People Sweaters / Sam Edelman Loafers / Faux Leather Tote

Tomorrow is Nordstrom Anniversary Public Access Day, which means that everyone will be able to shop. And nearly all of my most-loved products are still available… which means I either have ESPN (🤪) or bad taste. Whatever; not overthinking it. 😆

Before we get to my in-stock recommendations, though:

Happy shopping!

These are WONDERFUL and you need them. Seriously. They’re wildly comfortable, as they stretch like crazy yet don’t stretch OUT, if that makes sense. I have a size small from my non-pregnant days and a size large from pregnancy, and both still work. It’s crazy. So don’t worry about sizing too much! They elevate every outfit and make you look like you have it all together even though you feel like you never changed out of your PJs. Nordstrom’s Faux Leather Leggings are under $29 and a great alternative.

Everyone loves this thing, including me. It’s just so cuddly and FLUFFY. Size down, though; it’s on the larger side and if you’re not careful you can end up looking like a Furby. But man is it great when the weather starts to cool. Kids love snuggling into it, too, haha.

THE WINNER OF THE NORDSTROM SALE. Holy, guys. They’re fantastic. They’re extremely flexible and require absolutely no break-in time. Definitely one of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever tried, and right out of the box, too! I ordered my true size (7.5) in the leopard, and they’re perfect. Not tight in the slightest. I have read, however, that the solid version runs a little small and you might consider going up a half size. Idk, though.

Gibson’s Cozy line is ah-mah-zing. It runs very large, so I certainly suggest sizing down. But everything is just unbelievably soft, warm and obviously cozy. This cozy crewneck top is a great alternative since it’s just as soft!

YAY FOR BLONDO. It’s a company that specializes in waterproof boots and shoes that don’t look it, and I can’t get enough. I typically go a half size up in Blondo. HUGE fan, and these fit perfectly in the size 8. That chunky heels makes ’em extra comfy, too!

Here they are in black.

Looking for alternatives? Other options are the Blondo Valli Waterproof Bootie and the Cole Haan Waterproof Bootie.

Behind this pair of AG Farrah jeans, the $44.90 Wit & Wisdom jeans were my favorite of the sale. They run slightly large; I had to go down one size.

These $38.90 “Live-In” Zella Leggings (normally $59) are just as good as everyone says. They’re far thicker (and thus warmer) than the Lululemon Align Pants, and they have the compression factor. Because of this, I look a lot better in the Zellas than I do in the Aligns! Note: I went up one size.

Barefoot Dreams carries my absolute favorite cardigans, and a bunch of them are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Here’s the the Leith cardigan, priced at only $39.90! It’s very, very soft and cozy; comes in a ton of colors; and it’s again: it’s only $39.90. A solid deal!

I sized down to an XS. I love the blush, beige, olive and black as well.

Here’s the beige.

Aaaaand here’s the black.

First, let me just say that I can’t believe I’m blogging about bras right now. Never thought it would occur, but hey. It’s 2020, and far crazier things have happened! ;) And the Nordstrom sale is a GREAT time to stock up on quality underwear that’ll last. The discounts are crazy.

The On Gossamer Bump It Up Bra is an underwire bra but doesn’t feel like it… and it really does what it claims to do: bump you up a full cup size, depending on how many twists you give it. (See the twisted center? Simply twist again… and again… for more “volume,” haha. It’s wildly comfortable and also under $28. Can’t beat that!

I took my true size.

THIS BRA IS HEAVEN. I ordered three because the discount is so good. By far the best bra I’ve ever tried. It’s underwire, but it feels like I’m not wearing anything. It’s that comfy. It’s mind-blowing! And the lace? Not scratchy or itchy in the slightest. I’m going to be frank here and say that this will probably be the bra that I wear for the rest of my life, and apparently thousands of other women agree based on the stellar reviews! It runs SMALL, though. Again, I normally wear a 34A, and I went up to a 35B and it’s just right.

Note: These are the matching $19.90 Natori Feathers Hipster Briefs. They’re lovely but not necessary. (They run very small, too… so if you’re into matching sets, be sure to size up! If you’re not, I might try these briefs and these briefs, both of which are ~$13 when you buy three of them! Both get A+ reviews.)

One of the only real pieces of jewelry I own, but I do have to admit that I adore it! It’s engravable, and thus I’ve given it to so many friends and family with special things engraved on it over the years. A super sentimental and lovely gift.

Get it! What a steal. I need to get back into wearing simple jewelry!

The newer version of my wallet!

Game-changer. It’s expensive, but a little goes a long way. This stuff is a moisturizer AND primer in one, and it keeps your makeup on your face all day long. It’s nuts, and 100-percent the best beauty product I own. Before finding this, I’d need to do touchups throughout the day. But no more! Couldn’t live without it.
