Fall Forecast: Spice Colored Everything

If the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has been any indication of fall trends, it's safe to say that spice colored everything is on the horizon for fall 2017. (Remember this jacket.) I also added this spice colored skirt to the closet. It's only $64 as part of the sale, and such a good fall staple! I know, I are we already talking about Fall? But guys...did you know it's only 2 months away? I take my Fall wardrobe very seriously, so I'm stocking up now! I guess that's what happens when you live a state that has cold weather 8 months out of the year...

I'm sure some of you are completely sick of hearing about the Nordstrom sale, since it's only been open to cardholders. But I wanted to bring you another post today, because I have the best news! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public TOMORROW!! Yay! If you thought items were selling out fast before, they will go SO quickly come tomorrow morning. And (even better news), some of the items that have been sold out will get restocked tonight before the sale goes public. Be sure to check back on all my sale coverage to bookmark the best items from the sale. This sweater is one of the pieces I am banking on getting restocked.
If you are in the market for new black booties, these are to die! The "leather" is so soft and supple! They come in 4 colors, are less than $99 on the the sale, and are fully stocked! (I think they are one of the most overlooked booties at the sale, so you're in luck if you're open to snag yours tomorrow.) 

I'll be doing a full roundup of products that are still available, tomorrow when the sale goes public. Please let me know if there are any specific things you would like to see.

N Sale: The Best In Beauty

Bringing you a quick post today, to share the best in beauty at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Disclaimer: I have not personally used most of these products, but I chose these specific ones for two reasons. 1. They are a great deal 2. I have heard rave reviews about them from other bloggers.
Some personal faves from the sale, are these Voluspa candles (usually you can find them at Anthropologie and they are NEVER on sale!) Some other great brands like Dry Bar products, Beauty Blender, and Kiehl's are currently on sale.

Just remember, if you don't have access to the sale yet, you can still shop these products and just select "add to wishlist", that way your picks are all ready to go when the sale goes public  on Friday.


N Sale: Best Pieces Under $40

More Nordstrom Sale goodness coming today! To all you non-cardholders that are sick of me sharing stuff you can't buy, I have good news! Public access opens on Friday! So, start putting these items in your cart now and check out asap Friday morning. These items may sell out before then, so if possible, I highly recommend getting a Nordstrom card, which you can do here. That being said, Nordstrom often restocks a ton of items before the site goes public, so you may be able to snag some of these pieces then, even if they sell out now. Unfortunately, not all the color and size options get restocked, so I still recommend the card, if it's an option for you. 

Today, I'm sharing the best pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale under $40, starting with this striped tee. These tees are always a hit at every N Sale, and this year is no different. I absolutely love this year's version. It's so perfect to wear now with shorts, and later with jeans, like I styled here. I'm wearing a small in the "gray medium tawny stripe" color, but I also purchased the black and white stripe, and green.

The same brand has a new cardigan in the sale every year, and I am loving this year's style. It comes in 6 colors and is only $31. There are only 3 colors left, so don't wait to get yours. You won't regret it come fall. (I'm wearing a small.)

Finally, I talked about the designer jeans I bought in yesterday's post, but I'm bringing a super budget friendly option today. These are on sale for only $39 and great quality. They are definitely more stretchy than the AG jeans, but they still hug in all the right places. If you are looking for a budget friendly option, I definitely recommend these. They do run large, so order 1 size down. (I normally wear a 27 and bought the 26.) I just checked and they are currently sold out, but be sure to follow along on Instagram, because I'll let you know as soon as they are restocked. 

These boots are not under $40, but are def worth mentioning. You can read more about my love for them in this post

I'm linking to a ton of pieces below that are priced under $40. Happy shopping!

The Must Have Suede Jacket For Fall

Every year this suede jacket goes on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and every year it sells out quickly. That's why, I had to get it up here fast! I never purchased it in years past, because I was a little skeptical on if I would love it, but this year, I decided to take the plunge, and it does not disappoint! It is a must have suede jacket for fall! I am absolutely obsessed with the color - this one is "Spice", and the fit is amazing! I can see this working so well over a tee shirt and jeans, or even a cute LBD. This color is still available in all sizes, as well as this pretty red one, and they are both $60 off. Unfortunately, the gray shade already sold out, but keep checking back here, or on my Instagram, because I'll let you know when it's restocked.

As I mentioned in this post, I purchased 3 pairs of jeans, in different price points, to be able to give them a proper review for you guys. I'm wearing the AG Legging Jeans here, the most expensive of the 3 options. In my try on session on my IG Story, I told you that I wasn't that impressed with these. Not for the price, anyway. I have J Brand designer jeans, that I LIVE IN, and find to be well worth the money, but with these, I didn't find the same love. That being said, the quality is exceptional and you really get that high denim quality that most jeans lack. I was planning on sending them back, but after I tried them on in front of the boy, he literally said, "oh damn!" and now I'm torn. LOL He thinks the jean pockets are perfectly placed, to accentuate the ASSets, if you know what I mean! ;) What do you guys think about these jeans? They are always a best seller at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, as they are over $75 off! These are also a bit hit, this year, due to the raw, split hem and sparkles. Oh, and if you are wondering about size, I would say go with your size or size one up if you are in between. 
Finally, we have got to talk about these boots! You guys, they are everything! Like, stop what you are doing and go buy them now! I purchased them, again unsure if I would keep them, but the moment I tried them on, it was over! They are SO comfy. Like walking on clouds! I just love a good peep toe/peep heel bootie to transition from summer to fall, and these take the cake in that department. They come in 3 colors and currently less than $100. They are the total wear now, wear later, kind of shoe, so you are sure to get your money's worth out of them.

This top is also from the N Sale, and comes in 3 colors. It is a little sheer around the bust, fyi. 

I have a ton of content prepped for the week, so be sure to check back here for more from the Nordstrom Sale. Also, if there are any specific categories or blog topics you want addressed, please let me know! You can see my past posts about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here. Remember, it's currently only open to card holders (you can apply here), but public access starts THIS Friday, the 21st.

Everything I Ordered At The Nordstrom Sale

If you tried to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this morning, you may have found yourself incredibly frustrated like the rest of us. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the site completely crashed and nobody could check out! Luckily a *long* phone call to the incredible Nordstrom customer service, took care of everything and I got to purchase my top items. I knew these would sell out fast, so I was so happy to have it all go through. Even BETTER news - the site is back up and you can get your shop on! Below are the items I actually purchased at the Nordstrom sale today. Some of them have already sold out (I'll let you know when they're restocked!) so don't delay!!
These boots are so good I bought them in both colors. I know, so extra! But I really wanted gray boots all last year, and am pretty sure it will be well worth it. They are currently $75 off and I have heard incredible reviews about the brand. 

These suede moto jackets are always a hit at the NSale. I picked up this Spice colored one. It's so dreamy for fall!

It's just not a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale without a good BP cardigan. This one comes in 6 colors. (Only $31)

Work Hard and Be Nice - I mean...need I say more? Had to have it! (and only $21)

This pretty tank is going to be the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall.

I just can't resist a good white tee. This one is on sale for $15 and comes in 6 colors.

Super excited about this White Varsity Sweater. It has the cutest cross back detail and is less than $40.

Also, loving this black cut out neck pullover - only $32!

This long sleeved pocket shirt gets a fresh look every year and I'm loving this season's! It's only $19, so I ordered it in 3 colors. 

Can't even over these block heel booties for fall! Swoon! (They come in 3 color options.)

Suede minis are back for Fall and this spice one gave me all the feels. Again, sold out, but I'm sure it will be restocked so check back here for updates. 

I went a little crazy with jeans this year, but I wanted to buy 3 different price options to get a good feel for if they are worth it. I'm going to try on all 3 and report back here with my opinion on them. AG Legging Jeans ($149) Madewell ($90), Articles of Society ($40). 

Super excited about these leggings. I've heard great reviews that they are super slimming! 

I'll be doing try on sessions over on Instagram, as well as shooting all these looks over the weekend. If something is sold out, it may very likely be restocked, so be sure to keep checking in here to stay up to date with that. As a reminder, the sale is currently only open to Nordstrom card holders. You can gain access by signing up here. The site goes public on the 21st, but a lot of stuff is sold out by then, so I highly recommend joining now. Also, if there are any specific questions you have about the sale, please let me know. Love hearing from you all!

The Best Of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Yes, I woke up at 5am to be able to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and to bring you the very best in what's on sale, so...let's get started. Remember, so many of these items will sell out quickly, so don't delay the opportunity to get them now before they do. I've broken the sale up by categories below, and listed my favorite items in each.

Leather Jackets:
This Treasure and Bond leather jacket is an investment piece, for sure, but it's over $100 off, so worth sharing. 
Again, a total splurge here, but if you are looking for a well made leather jacket, this Topshop piece is over $200 off, priced at $220. 
BLANK NYC leather jackets are always a hit at the Nordstrom sale, and are guaranteed to sell out fast. This one currently is discounted to $64. 
This embroidered faux leather jacket, is sure to be a hit this fall/winter. 
Suede motos are a fall essential, and you can snag this one (comes in gray too!) for over $60 off.

This was hard category for me to narrow down! There are SO many great coats on sale here, including brands like Patagonia, Columbia, Vince and more. You can view them all here, but I narrowed it down to my top 7 favorites. It's cold 8 months out of the year in Colorado, so coats are always worth the investment, to me, and this is the perfect time to stock up on high quality pieces, at a lower cost,  that will last you through the winter.

I always stock up on sweaters and cardigans for fall, at the Nordy sale, because they are always at an amazing price!
This BP long cardigan is the perfect piece for fall! It comes in 6 colors and is on sale for $31. (The BP cardigans in last year's sale, sold out SUPER fast, so don't wait to buy yours. I ordered them in 3 colors and wore them all throughout the fall.)

Everyday basics:
So many of these tops above are marked down to under $20 and $30!

There is no better time to stock up on designer denim than the NSale. These AG legging jeans are $75 off, and sell out  every year!
Other brands worth noting, are Topshop (only $45 for these), Madewell and PAIGE.

There are so many good shoes on sale, that I have to break them up into category.

The shoe gods answered and these Stuart Weitzman OTK boots are part of the Nordstrom sale. They are nearly $300 off, and already in my basket. I'm just struggling with whether I want the low heel or not (I was really hoping they would be flat.) I may go for these Dolce Vita ones instead.


Obsessing over these Vince block heel booties! I am sure they are going to be a hit at the sale, and they are discounted down to $99.
Also dying over these sexy Sam Edelman booties, which are $50 off.
If you are looking to splurge, these Stuart Weitzman booties are over $200 off and will stand the test of time!

To be honest, nothing really spoke to me in this department, but you can check out the selection here.

SO much good activewear is on sale, guys! Loving all of the pieces by Zella (some pants are only $35 right now.) Also, I absolutely love my Reebok pieces, like this quilted sweater.

Bags + Accessories:
If you have ever considered a Michele watch, now is the time! This one is $500 off!
