Friday Favorites #67

Happy Friday y’all! As happy as I am to see Fridays around here, I’m also starting to wish they would roll around a little slower. It’s going to be time for Miss Katie to head back to school much too soon for my liking. Well today’s the day the Nordstrom sale opens to the public so in lieu of my normal Friday Favorites I thought I’d share some of the things I ordered. Some I plan to keep, some are undecided and some I actually returned last night. I’ve still got more coming in and I wish I could keep it all, but that just doesn’t need to happen.


The jury is still out on this top but I’ll probably keep it. I love the look and thinks it’s super cute, but I’m just trying to decide if when the weather cools down I really want my shoulders to be cold? I ordered a petite small in this one. These pants are by KUT and they are nice and soft and stretchy. I’m wearing a 4.  They feel like pajamas and I’m all for staying in my pjs. LOL I love these adorable booties, but they went back last night. They have the cutest cutout detail I think a lot of bloggers ordered them and for them they are comfy, but I could tell I wasn’t going to want to wear them so back they went. I’ve got another pair in my cart with a lower heal to try.


This is the top Katie and I both ordered. I ordered what was described as black and wasn’t sure what to expect because it looked dark gray in the photo and that’s how I’d describe it. I ordered a small in this one but I’m usually and x-small in Free People. I love to add a piece or two of their clothing to my closet. They are different and usually have some kind of fun detail. The back of this is where you find it and the high low hem. These jeans I LOVE! It’s taken me a while to get on the light denim express but these won me over. Super comfy and cute frayed hem. This pair is a 6P and I’ve ordered a regular 4 & 6 to try because I’d prefer they were just a smidge longer.



Same Free People top with the same pants as the green above but in burgundy.



These are the shoes I bought last year during the sale and I seriously ADORE them. Not only are they cute as all get out, but they are comfortable. YASSS! I’d almost go as far to say if you only order one thing from this sale, this is it. They make so many outfits looks darling and I swear every time I wear them someone comments on them. This years version is slightly different but the same basic look. The sizing is really limited so you can always order the wrong size and once the sale is over they will restock for fall and you can exchange them. #shoppingwizardhere


Once again, same pants as above in green but let’s talk about this sweater. I ordered it last year and returned it and regretted it all winter long! Well, not this year. It’s soft, cozy and darling! See how cute the shoes are mixed with the striped shirt? LOVE! WHAAAA…It’s currently sold out, but keep checking, it might restock.



 Same outfit with a slightly different cardigan also sold out. Cardigan options herehere. This is why you need a Nordstrom credit card. Early access people are snatching up all the good stuff, oh yes we are. ?



I keep looking at utility pants every year and never keep a pair. Could these be the ones? Time will tell. They’re comfy and cute. I’ve just got to decide between these and a similar pair hanging in my closet.

           These leopard shoes are another closet must have in my humble opinion. Animal prints are pretty much considered a neutral these days…crazy, I know. This pair is a little pricey and it took me a while to finally order them, but they’ve been so worth it. I wear them all the time in the fall, winter and spring. They are adorable with so many outfits and even better than that, they are truly comfortable. They aren’t on sale, but a great investment. 





So I really wanted to love this poncho on, but I think Katie put it best…”that’s a lot of fabric”. It sure is! If we lived somewhere that the temperatures were cold I’d have been tempted to keep it even for just around the house, but it was just too much for my 5’3″ frame. It is all kinds of soft and like wearing your favorite blanket. Minnesota friends, you need this! I’m wearing my new favorite leggings with it. Grab a pair of these while they are on sale and thank me later.

I looked at these boots for about 5 years before I finally gave in last year and bought them. Trust me, it was the right decision. They are an investment but they will NEVER go out of style and I love them.


This dress is sold out, but watch for it to restock if you like it. I’ve mentioned we have a wedding to attend this fall (one of our favorite girls is getting married?). I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it, but I really liked it much better than I expected and BONUS, there’s plenty of room for cake in there!


This is the same sweater as the blush one at the beginning of the post. Here’s a great example of continuing to check for things being restocked. When I started writing this is was SOLD OUT and now there’s one size and one color back in stock. KEEP CHECKING FRIENDS, DON’T LOSE HOPE!!!


I loved these booties although I made a poor choice in the color. I thought this “new tornado” color would go with a lot and it doesn’t so I’d go with the black or  new foxy in these. I did end up returning them. They were much to wide and flopped all over the back of my foot which broke my heart. I’d also suggest going down a half size in these. They are super cute and I wish they would have fit me better.


I’ve gotten quite the collection of sweaters by Barefoot Dreams. This hooded cardigan is as soft as a baby’s blanket and really all the “coat” I need out here in CA. It’s going to become my faithful travel companion. Perfect for lounging around the house, running out for some quick errands or grabbing if your going to a restaurant. I got myself a treat that’s not on sale but I’ve been eyeing for some time. These Tory Burch sandals.  They are so cute and comfy as well. Yay me!

Oh my goodness! I’m so happy that’s done. It’s a lot of information, but I wanted to arm you with shopping knowledge. Now go forth and grab those bargains ladies…at least the ones that are left. There’s still plenty of good things to be had. Remember…order now, return later!!!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend friends.

    I am probably sending back those VC booties regular size was too big but I really think the 1/2 size down is going to be too small. Great finds friend..I never saw that dress and it's super cute on you! And I'm in total agreement on the Frye boots…I bought mine two years back and absolutely love them. Happy Friday!

      The blue dresses came in today so I can't wait to try them. Too bad about the booties. His shoes were all over the board this time. The other booties felt too small and the low ones too big and like you, I think a 1/2 size either way wouldn't have worked. Oh well…maybe it was a sign? Have a great weekend!

    You look adorable in every single piece. Except the poncho which is wearing you! Ha! Katie is right that's a lot of fabric! Everything you chose looks so comfy and cozy that I am ready for cold weather and now I really want to order a cardigan. I have to remind myself I do not need one and go take a look in my closet at all the ones hanging there already. Boo! I don't know how you'll decide what to keep and what to return because it all looks so good. Oh, that dress for the wedding? Perfect. And dang girl, look at those legs!
    As much as I love Fridays I am starting to dread them, not only because I go back to work in 2 weeks but Nolan is leaving in about 4 and my heart breaks just a little everytime. Ugh! Let's enjoy the weekend friend!

      Once again you are so sweet to praise me (and my legs?) Why do the birdies have to leave??? OH YEAH…so we can get them off the payroll eventually. That's the perk. Have a wonderful weekend Kellyann!!! XOXO

    I love the turtleneck top! So cute with the tulip back, too! I've been trying to think fall wardrobe, but it's still mostly tanks and sandals here in Houston. Fall occasionally makes an appearance here around November/December! 🙂

      I know what you mean. Our winters are pretty mild and all my buddies in the south get to pull out all their cozy clothes the end of Sept/Oct. I hate buying so far ahead, but if I change my mind I can always return.

    I LOVE that dress! So I've been soooo busy that I made poor choices during the sale and by the time I went to order what I really wanted, like that pink circle Cardi amongst like a dozen other things, they were sold out. Darn, oh well, my game plan should be better next year and I did score the blardigan. The burgundy pants are fab too. You did good girl! Happy Happy weekend, soak up some Katie time mama!

    • July 22, 2017 / 12:30 am

      Oh thank you sweetie! Well if it's any consolation I feel like I didn't do so great either. I should have ordered some things in different colors and blah, blah, blah. The blue dresses came in today…I'll have to show them next week. Hope your making lots of dough at the yard sale!!! Happy weekend friend.❤️

    That blush sweater is my absolute fave. I need a pair of leopard flats that are comfier, I have a pair from Target and they hurt so much I never wear them! So many cute pieces you found here. I really love that dress! I agree in that the poncho does have a lot of fabric!!


    • July 22, 2017 / 3:41 pm

      Thanks Carrie! Both pairs of those animal print shoes are seriously very comfortable. You should consider getting one (or both). Happy Saturday!!!

    • July 22, 2017 / 8:41 pm

      I wish I could just keep it all, but…I'm going to have to break up with some things. ?

  6. July 23, 2017 / 4:17 pm

    You got so many great things! That cold shoulder tunic is so cute! That dress looks amazing on you!

    Doused In Pink

      Thanks Jill! We actually ordered the tunic for my daughter too after she tried on mine. I've got to decide what stays, and what goes back?. Hope you've had a great weekend!

    I love that blush cardigan… so cute! And I really wanted the same Barefoot hooded cardigan, but that color sold out so quick. Quicker than I could decide whether or not to get it, and now I'm kicking myself. It would have been the perfect Christmas gift for myself. 😉

    • July 24, 2017 / 4:11 pm

      I'm excited about the blush one too. I know you live away from stuff, but if you think you'll be near a Nordstrom in the fall, just order it in any size/color combo and then exchange in store. I'm sure it will fully restock after the sale. 🙂

    I love so many of your picks! That turtleneck looks so cozy and great with those burgundy pants. And I LOVE that long purple sweater! The poncho is hilarious. What were they thinking with all that fabric?!

    • July 25, 2017 / 3:17 am

      Thanks Jess! Yes, that poncho was something else…LOL Hope you are having a great week! XO

  9. July 26, 2017 / 12:19 am

    I love so many of these I am having a hard time picking a favorite. Love the Tory Burch candles and those cute grey booties! Also Jury IN, keep that first top!! SO cute! XO

    • July 26, 2017 / 2:06 am

      Me too!!! Why don't I have a money tree???? I'm keeping the top and we ordered one for KT. The booties went back…all the sad faces, but they didn't fit me well.XO
