Friday Favorites #113 – Nordstrom Sale Try On

Hello Friday and hello vacation eve!!! Tomorrow we leave bright and early and make our trek to Gulf Shores, AL and a week full of nothing but sun, sand, fun and food. YASSSS!!!!

Today is kind of like round two of the anniversary sale that is now open for the public. I figured it would be a great time to share the things I was able to order for in store pick up last week. Only a few things have been delivered so far from my things that had to be shipped. The majority of them will arrive next week while I’m on vacation. ? Hopefully my next door neighbor will be able to put them inside for me. #thankheavensforthem


You may have seen me sharing this earlier this week on my Instastories, if not, you missed it out. LOL These are two of the things I ordered. The Zella high waist leggings are wonderful. Katie and I both got the capri version last year and have worn them over and over. This year I ordered us the long  black pair and the short gray pair. The high waist holds you in and makes it impossible to have a muffin top. #YASS I size up to a medium in these leggings or they are so tight around my middle it’s uncomfortable and Katie does the same thing.

The second thing is the “wubby fleece pullover”. How can something called “wubby” not be super soft? I equated to wearing a stuffed animal. The softness of this pullover is unlike anything I’ve ever worn. Dare I say it? It might even be softer than a blardigan. Whaaaat? Yes ladies, it’s that soft. I’m wearing a small and if fits well, but if you like pullovers and sweatshirts to be slightly oversized, you might want to size up.


I ordered quite a few pairs of booties and these Sam Edelmans are the front runners. The heel is slightly lower than some of the other choices, and I’m all about that. I’m just to darn practical for my own good. I love the caramel color of these too. I ordered a 7 (my usual size), but ended up going back for a 7 1/2 so I could wear a little sock liner with them. I could tell they might rub if I didn’t and honestly, I just like to wear a little sockie with all my booties. I also got these Vince Camuto peep toe booties, but they are a 4″ heel and higher than I like for daily wear and comfort.

The B.P. Curve Hem Cardigan is a slightly cheaper option to the Leith Circle cardi. I bought the Leith in blush last year and have worn it so much. When I bought it I was so excited about the pockets, but they hit right at my hips and just add bulk that frankly I neither need nor want. #idontneedhelpinthatdepartment  The. B.P.version is so similar and the pockets are on the outside. It’s a great weight and I think I’ll really like it. I sized down to an extra-small after getting the small and feeling it was too big.


I told y’all I went a little ape crazy in the shoe department and I wasn’t lying. I am a lot of things, but a liar isn’t one of them. HA! Mules are big again this season and I’ve been thinking I’d like a pair with a heel. These are B.P.  too. The website says these are a 4″ heel, but they don’t look like it and #yay they don’t feel like it either. They are going to look really cute with so many things and be a great transition shoe as well. I bought my normal 7 and they are great. At first I was worried they were a little wide, but I think I can manage. Keep in mind my feet are pretty narrow.


Okay, I’ve got to be honest. I didn’t order this sweater in my first batch, but I saw it on Cyndi Spivey and thought it was cute, which it is, but I ended up taking it back. I just knew I wouldn’t really wear it. That’s something I’m trying to be better about, not keeping things if I really don’t think I love them. I’m not a big fan of the balloon sleeves either, so there’s that. I sized down to an extra small in this sweater.


More shoes! I have a pair of black booties that I bought year before last during the sale, but these are slightly dressier. I was really torn between gray and black but ultimately went with the black. I think I could probably put them with leggings and they would look cute too.

Speaking of leggings, I also bought the Spanx faux leather leggings and they are the bomb. I bought them last year and chickened out and returned them, then regretted it all winter. Not this time.



You can probably already predict what it is I love about these pajamas. They are soooo soft and who doesn’t love to wear something soft when it’s time to relax and rest? I’m wearing a medium here because I like my PJ’s to fit loosely.


I was really excited about these Lucky wedges. Here’s a good comparison of them and the Sam Edelman pair. The wedges are slightly higher than the other booties and in the end, comfort and the caramel color won out. I’m returning the wedges, which I think run true to size.




I looked at these blankets last year and didn’t get any, but this year I just couldn’t pass them up after seeing them in the store. They are so cuddly and soft. #givemeallthesoftthings At under $26 these are perfect to throw on the sofa, bed, chair or anywhere you want to add some color. They will also make great gifts for newlyweds {wink, wink} or for Christmas.



These jeans were a real miss for me, but I must be the odd man out. They sold out, but I’m guessing will be restocked, but perhaps in limited quantities. I ordered my normal size (28) and they were: A – really tight, B – too long, and C – high-waisted, which does not work well on this short-waisted girl. Going back…today!


Last but not least, these tall Sam Edelman boots in black suede. All last winter I wished I had a dressier pair of boots to wear with dresses and skirts. When these came I first thought they were going to be tall in the shaft for my leg, but then after looking a little more, I decided I could pull them off. YAY!!! They are really pretty and the heel height is 3 3/4″. I don’t know about you, but that quarter inch between 3 3/4″ and 4″ is a big difference. #strangebuttrue I ordered my normal size.

Okay friends. Go forth and shop! Get er’ done! Have fun and have a great weekend!!!!

    So I love the Sam Edelman ones too but in the same boat. I ordered my size 7 (let’s share shoes!) but I think I need a 7 1/2 and right now they’re sold out. Fingers crossed for restock. Have a WONDERFUL time at the Shores!! xo Wishing you loads of sunshine and yummy eats!

    I love that balloon sleeve sweater on you, the color is PERFECT! It looks so meh online I would have never given it a second thought but girl you rock it! Love all the booties too and that fleece pullover looks super cozy. Maybe if I had ordered a medium in the zella live in leggings I’d have liked them. Those pajamas are so cute too and perfect to take on vacation!!!!

    • July 20, 2018 / 11:17 am

      Thanks friend! I took it back, those sleeves didn’t do it for me, but I did love the color. Oh yes, I bet if you’d ordered a M in the leggings you’d like them better. Happy Friday!! XOXO

  4. July 20, 2018 / 12:16 pm

    I got those wedge booties too! I love them!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:28 am

      YAY! Hope you enjoy them. (I ended up keeping the Sam Edelmans, because I just loved the color!) XO

    Out of the 15 items on my wish list, only 5 were available to order. I went to Nordstom’s today to see if I could see any of the items and now I only have 1 item ordered. ?
    I really like the Lucky booties but I don’t need another pair and that red sweater looks really cute on you. Yesterday, I purchased, at a different store, a pair of Eileen Fisher sandals regularly $225 for $75!! Super excited about those!!
    Lots of good sales going on!!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:27 am

      Hi Kathy! That’s so frustrating. Sorry that happened. I’ve been checking some things I wanted to snag after seeing so many other bloggers lists and actually had 2 of the jeans come back in my size. Grabbed them right up! Keep checking!!! You might get lucky! XOXO OH! And great score on the sandals. LOVE that!!

    I never thought I could wear leggings until I bought the Zella leggings last year. They live up to the hype. I may get a navy pair this year.

    For some reason I cannot wear the Kut jeans either but looking forward to the Wit and Wisdom jeans I bought that are on the way.


    • July 26, 2018 / 6:26 am

      Hi Patty, I considered the navy too, but caved with the black. I know they’ll be more “forgiving”.? I kept checking on the W&W and finally snagged a pair. Hopefully in the right size. (I got a petite bc I need some shorter ones for all the booties.) Hope you’re having a great week! XO

  7. July 20, 2018 / 3:47 pm

    Some wise choices Lisa, love the cardis especially. Now go get yourself a good holiday, hugs,x.

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:24 am

      Can you have to many cardis, Mary? I’m bordering on it, I’m pretty sure. HA! Happy Thursday!!

  8. July 22, 2018 / 3:31 pm

    How cute are you in those pjs, girl?! Also, I would not be able to resist something called “wubby” either!! I am all about the soft things!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:24 am

      Aw shucks. You’re so good to me! You need a “wubby” living where it gets cold. XOXO

    Oh, so glad you are in your happy place and I’m here struggling with whether or not to order some of those throws. Good grief, like I need another throw, but they are so pretty. I keep looking for the mules and they still don’t have my size. Boo! Enjoy the rest of your week!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:23 am

      OH LEA!!! Order the throw. I’m struggling with not ordering one for every room of the house. HA! I got one for the newlyweds for a Christmas gift too. They make a gorgeous accessory just lying around too. Fingers crossed the mules come back in stock. (if they have any size just order it and then you can exchange ?) XOXO

    You look great in everything! Love the jacket in the first pic and those tall black boots- to die for. I snagged those faux leather spanx leggins too- can’t wait to get them!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:21 am

      Eeekkk, that’s awesome Holly! They’re really so fun to add to our closets. Now to figure out what to wear them with…LOL Shop first, figure that out later. HA! XOXO

    I’ve been eyeing those Sam Edelman booties. They are so cute and the perfect shade! Your fuzzy pullover looks super cozy and I might cave with that too!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:21 am

      The color is really what sold me on this pair. I don’t “need” more booties, but I do love the caramel color. I’m going to love curling up with my leggings and that softer than soft pullover. Happy Thursday!! XO

    Wow! I love your picks! Especially that Wubby pullover! Very tempting! I love your shoes/boot choices too! So many awesome shoes at the sale this year!

    • July 26, 2018 / 6:20 am

      Even though it doesn’t get that cold where we live, it will still be cozy for sitting around in. Thanks Amy!! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!!! XO
