Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I Bought.

cardigan // leggings // heels // sunglasses

A Sunday post! I hope you guys are having a great weekend. I’m trying not to let the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale take over/spoil my regularly programmed content but I did want to make you guys aware of the good stuff that’s left. I’ve already shared my picks from the sale and Kelly shared her under $200 picks, so that’s a lot of posting for one sale, but this really is the biggest and best one of the year. Prices will go back up at the end of the sale so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite Fall basics and take advantage of the special beauty exclusives.

Of everything I bought, the cardigan above and my Barefoot Dreams cardigan (scroll down for pics) were my favorite purchases. Both are so soft and cozy. The long one is a bit expensive but for 100% cashmere (and how thick it is), it’s really a great deal. And besides it’s like wearing a blanket and who doesn’t want to wear a cashmere blanket all day long!? And of course, the Spanx faux leather leggings. I have and wear these constantly and buy a new pair every year.

Besides that, I bought another of my favorite bra (in suntan – a bit more interesting than classic nude?) and the matching underwear. I always size up in these, by the way… they run kind of small.

And there are three beauty exclusives that I wanted to call your attention to. I didn’t buy these – but only because I already have all three and LOVE THEM.

First is the SK-II set. You know how much I love this brand (see: this post) and it’s a great way to try the brand. It has the 3 best (and most potent) products from the line. Just be forewarned, you will get addicted to the masks and they are usually $15 each!

Neulash has changed my life – or at least my eyelashes… this set is such a good deal! I have a more thorough review of Neulash here but trust me on this one… if you are even thinking about getting lash extensions, try this serum first!!

The Beachwaver! I can’t tell you how much I love this thing. I am a total dummy when doing my own hair… this has made it so much easier for me to do my own hair. I’ll often just air dry my hair and then go over it with the Beachwaver. No blowout necessary. It’s a total game changer. Just don’t travel with it internationally. I blew mine up when I was in Paris and was totally devastated!

  1. The cardigan is a great piece you scored from the sale! It’s perfect to bring out in the summer for the air-conditioned indoors. Love the way you styled it too! 🙂
