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.
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 here & here. 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.
