Have y’all heard the news? Nordstrom is trying to make nice with all of us for the site being down yesterday, and they are doing something HUGE! Due to the outage yesterday (which was obviously incredibly frustrating and annoying), Nordstrom made yesterday a 10x points day for everybody who ordered with their Nordstrom cards! The points were automatically applied to your account. AND THEY’VE EXTENDED IT TO TODAY AS WELL (until Midnight)! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO! THANK YOU, NORDSTROM! I would expect nothing less with the level of customer service that I’ve become accustomed to with them. So happy they are doing something!
Okay…on with the post!!!!
Ladies. I think I’m going to need a taco or 7 today. In fact, I might need one every hour on the hour just to make it through. I’m exhausted, in the best possible way of course…but I just know tacos will fortify my strength and make everything better. #andamargarita #andanap #butthatsneitherherenorthere
I highlighted many of my favorite items yesterday (click HERE for yesterday’s post if you missed it!), but I’ve got MORE ITEMS today! If you’re new around these parts, the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE introduces fall and winter items at a deeply reduced introductory price. The items are introduced with SALE PRICES, and then when the sale is over, the prices go back up. It’s Nordstrom’s way of encouraging us to start buying fall stuff when it is still 100 degrees outside. AND IT WORKS. Because the deals are fantastic. #andweareallsuckersforagreatdeal
So…..Turn off the t.v., get your kids a snack and tell them to go read quietly (or let’s be real, hand them an ipad! ha!), and ignore your husband for the next several minutes. GAME FACE GIRLS.
So I think we can all mostly agree that the sale is really lacking great tops this year. Everything seems to have a tulle bottom, a huge bow, cut outs in the back, a bell sleeve the size of Texas, etc…..there just weren’t enough cute and normal tops.
HOWEVER. What the sale lacks in tops, it more than makes up for in cardigans. BECAUSE MY WORD AT THE CARDIGANS. I showed you several yesterday, and I have another one today. This one is from Madewell. Size down, I’m wearing an x-small.
I paired it with some really awesome skinny cargo pants! I’m wearing the $17 white tee. If wearing it by itself, it will require a cami…but it doesn’t need one if you are wearing it with a layer over it.
I’m wearing my same booties, bag, and earrings that I showed you yesterday…I just added a new sparkly necklace!

Here’s a close up of the pants.
The pants are stretchy, soft, and comfy FOR THE WIN. I’m wearing a 27P, so they are true to size if you want them to hit at the ankle (I’m 5’4″). They also have them in regular length and plus size! If army green isn’t your thing, there’s grey too! And they are ONLY $49.90 right now!
And this next picture shows you the exact same tee, cardigan, earrings, necklace, and booties in the picture above…I just switched out the cargo skinny pants for these great wine colored skinny jeans. There are only $52.90 right now! These are stretchy with a really fitted look. My picture doesn’t capture the color well, but they are a very deep and rich wine color. And I’m carrying the embellished tote from yesterday!
Get The Look For Yourself Here. Pay attention to the color of the pants. Pretty, right?:
Just to show the versatility in the pieces…..
The tee, cardigan, earrings, necklace, and booties are the same in these side by side outfits. I only switched up the pants and the bags. This is fall and winter dressing at it’s best!
Do y’all remember this long cardigan we all went crazy for? Well, it’s available in new colors and IN THE SALE!
Let’s talk about the cardi for a second. I’m wearing a PETITE small. This cardigan is obviously meant to be long, but I didn’t want it to overwhelm my 5’4″ frame by hanging below my knees. If 5’4″ or under, I would definitely recommend going for the petite sizing…but I’m thinking that you taller ladies are going to absolutely LOVE the length. This cardigan is very light and is more of a spring, summer, and early fall cardigan.

The jewelry in the sale is actually really good this year! When I first hit up the jewelry section yesterday, I wasn’t really very excited about the selection, but after I took some of it back to the dressing room I decided there were several pieces that I really loved. The flat lay below shows you all of the jewelry I came home with. These are great basics that I know I will reach for again and again. I’m clearly have a moment with gold.
Look at the cute pouch the initial necklace comes in. And the pendant necklace is adjustable!

Yesterday I showed y’all the mixed metal with bling Kate Spade watch, but I love THIS one from Tory Burch too! The little TB logo rotates with the tic of each second! I can’t decide which one I’m going to get, but I know I need to order today!
And I teased this item on facebook the other night. I asked y’all what you think I ordered in TONS of different colors. Many of you guessed tees. NOPE. Panties. #whohatesthatword
I promise you, you will forget you are even wearing them. And after you try one pair, you will want to replace your entire underwear drawer with them.
There has been some confusion over these because they are called “Bliss Cotton Girl Briefs” and they come in lots of pretty colors. Lots of you are assuming that they are for little girls…but I promise they are not! These are ladies sizing! Click HERE for the below women’s underwear.
And for those of you still loyal to Hanky Panky, you can find the ones in included in the sale HERE.
This next top is a little out of the box for me, but I wanted to show it since it wasn’t a cardigan, and I do think it’s totally sassy and fun! It’s pretty lightweight and such a cute fit. I’m wearing a small, but the part around the waist is very fitted. If I were to get it, I think I would size up to a medium for a more relaxed look.

One more new item to talk about today. I don’t have a picture of myself in these fabulous boot cut jeans yet, but you’ll see them on me on Monday! THEY. ARE. AWESOME. They will make you look taller and skinnier than you actually are. NO LIE. I know lots of us fell in love with this brand a couple of years ago, and they have TONS of jean choices in the sale (in both regular and plus sizes).
I have them in the regular 4 (not petite), but I have to wear really tall wedges, heels, or boots with them. If under 5’4″, you probably want to go with petite. You will feel amazing in these jeans. They are such a nice change from all of the skinny and cropped jeans out there. And I’m telling you. TALL. AND. SKINNY.
Again, if you didn’t see YESTERDAY’S POST , you need to go there right now!!!! Below you will see a review of many of the items in yesterday’s post……but if you need information on sizing or thorough reviews of anything seen below, just head to yesterday’s post to get that.
Click HERE for the bag. If you buy it now you will be saving $143! WHOAH! This is a bag I will be carrying for years to come. If you are in the market for a new bag, you have a lot to choose from! I feel like they have a really great selection this year of all different shapes, colors, and sizes,
Click HERE for the tote. Buying it during the sale will save you $40, which makes the bag UNDER $80! This is one of the items that I think will go quickly.
I hope you are all scoring amazing deals and are going to be thrilled with what you got! I also hope my posts have been helpful to you ladies. Have a wonderful weekend with your people!
