Friday Favorites – The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 is Live!

Happy Friday my loves!  Finally the day has arrived for the fury of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016!  It has gone live and I’m telling you, do not hesitate.  I had the opportunity to swing by the store yesterday to see things in person.  It’s crazy to think about Fall weather when it’s in the 90’s in Florida.  However, all those gem/jewel tones, boots, and scarves is making me wish for cooler weather down here. I will also say, the stores really do have limited sizes especially in the under $100 price points.  So many things I went to try on were not stocked in my size.  They were happy to ship me the size but then I was like welllll isn’t that what online shopping is for?  So my best advice is to order it online so you are guaranteed to get what you want.  Also, I went and tried things on to give you my best sizing advice. With how fab the Nordstrom return policy is, I tend to order both sizes and just return whichever one doesn’t fit as well.  Okay, so let’s get into my favorite picks!

These Napa leather lace up ballet flats are such a such a steal and just as pretty in person.

Here is what I’ve personally picked up so far.  These Tory Burch riding boots, they have been on my radar for so long and I finally pulled the trigger.  There are just as gorgeous in person and run true to size.  These Spanx faux leather leggings, they were sold out everywhere last year and I totally understand why.   The Zella leggings are fully stocked and under $35, the crops are under $25.   I live in riding black pants in the Fall and this pair by Vince Camuto is a fab price point and fit great.  I got this top in four colors, when it’s $15 you can see why.  These waterproof grey booties will be a staple.  The perfect Fall hat for under $30.  This two tone Michael Kors watch.

This dress for the Fall!  Size up, this is a 6.


I can’t even think about scarves but this one by BP is under $15 and insanely soft.

The Splurges

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Hunter boots

The Rag & Bone booties are the first things that sell out every year and there is a reason why.  The Margot and Kinsey booties are splurges that are worth it.  My Margot booties have lasted me 3 Winters now and have held up beautifully.  They are also extremely comfortable.  The Hunter boots are still in stock and the straps on the back make them look more tailored.  The best Chanel dupe that is out there.

 I tried on these Rag & Bone dark skinnies and they are the most flattering dark skinnies ever.  Since they have stretch, I went down in size to a 27.  I love the frayed hemline and they are fully stocked!

The Staples/Steals

This long sleeved top in every color.  Sole Society has so many great affordable bags including this travel bag.  How gorgeous is the back of this Zella top.  These over the knee boots are such a great price.  This chiffon skirt if perfect for the Fall.  Also, make sure to stock up on these candles.

This is the best layering top, it is incredibly soft and non wrinkle.  Size down, I picked it up in an XS.

I was weary of this shirt online but in person it’s so adorable .  This is a medium and it is a relaxed fit.

This camel bag is such a great size and looks super high end and $35.

The Under $100 Crew

These open toe booties are insanely comfy and you can rock them now with shorts and dresses.  I am in love with them.  YSL lip stains are my favorite and this set is such a great value.  This long sleeved dress will be on major repeat for the Fall.  Here is your chance to get the PMD device, I still use it and love it.


The Under $50 Crew

This crossbody is the perfect city bag.  I am scooping up this duffel bag for travel.  These dark rinse skinnies will go with everything.  I use my Butter nail set every single day, I am buying two of these.


The Workout Crew

The Alo leggings are so of the best sellers in my barre studio.  Okay how gorgeous are these mesh leggings?  I ordered this bra and it’s insanely comfy.  The back details of this tank!

  10. So, I had no idea about this sale…bad blogger. Haha. But, I’m off to read legging reviews because I’ve been on the hunt for good quality pairs that aren’t see through for YEARS. And I can never seem to find any that will do the job & stand the test of time // constant washing.

  11. I literally love all your picks! My problem when I go out shopping is that I never get casual wear… need to change that up. Love the blouses <3 x

    All of your shopping guides for the sale have been very hard on my wallet, lol. SO much good stuff this year, right? Everything that I’ve gotten has been a hit with the exception of a couple things, and now I’m hoping a few things come back in my size so I can order multiples!
