Sooooo today is the day we’ve all been waiting for… the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally live to the public! I hope you have your shopping lists ready, because things will go fast!! If something you want is sold out, keep checking because Nordstrom will be restocking most items this morning (especially the popular items like the B.P. cardigans and booties!). If you missed it, I did a full mirror try-on and review blog post HERE. There were so many good items in the sale this year, with really steep discounts! Today I’m rounding up some more of my sale outfits from the past week. Scroll down to find the giveaway winners AND for some life updates 🙂
First up, this Leith easy circle cardigan in both the pink and beige colors. This is one of the softest and most comfortable cardigans I own. I wear it in a size XS.
boyfriend denim shorts (not on sale)
This floral bell sleeve romper is also available in all sizes and is marked down to $35. I’m wearing a size XS!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale also has TONS of cute workout gear this year! I snagged this cropped sweatshirt and a new pair of Zella high-waisted leggings. I love these for both my pure barre workouts and for running errands around town.
This side slit tee is (in my opinion) one of the best items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They’re marked down to $15.90 and SUCH high quality (much thicker than last year’s version). It comes in several colors. I’m wearing a size XS.
These Kate Spade tassel sneakers – I just die every time I see them! They’re the perfect casual sneaker that you can wear to lunch with your girlfriends, to class or even on a casual date night. I sized down half a size for a perfect fit.
This Topshop lattice back sweater is another favorite purchase – if you want to see the front, I reviewed it in this blog post. It is made of a really soft material and feels so comfortable on! (Side note – you don’t have to wear it off-the-shoulder like I’m doing here.) I’m wearing the size US 2.
boyfriend denim shorts (not on sale)
Tory Burch has some AMAZING items in the sale this year – including this handbag and these sandals which remind me of the Miller sandals and are just as cute. My handbag is in the color “light oak” and my sandals are in the color “makeup.” Both look like a very soft pink in person.
Not everything from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is geared towards fall – you can start wearing this satin cold shoulder top right now, and it’s marked down to less than $30. I’m wearing a size XS.
This polka dot blouse stole my heart right away – especially for only $31.90! It’s a great top for work, I can envision it with black pants or a pencil skirt. Wearing size XS.
These B.P. lightweight rib stitch cardigans are guaranteed to sell out – again. Every single color sold out during the Early Access Sale! I bought it in this grey color, as well as beige, green and burgundy. It’s incredibly comfortable and can be worn so many different ways, with so many different outfits. It does run a little bit big – I sized down to an XXS in this.
white shorts (not on sale)
This comfy blanket is usually super expensive (it is REALLY thick and high quality), but is marked down $60 during the sale. It’s a good time to snag one for the upcoming fall and winter months!
I’m wearing a size 2 in this ruffle sleeve cardigan. It also comes in black!

These Rebecca Minkoff crossbody handbags are the perfect fall handbags and are also included in the sale! They’re the perfect size to fit my iPhone 7 Plus, my car keys and a few makeup items.
Fingers crossed that these Moonlight pajamas are re-stocked! I love the pink color and they are soooooo soft! Wearing an XS.

These Marc Jacobs sunglasses are the perfect tortoise sunglasses, and are marked down almost $60.
Another favorite cardigan of mine: this B.P. rib knit cardigan. I love the texture of it, and the fabric is really soft in person. It looks cute paired with a fall scarf! Wearing an XS.
Levi’s jeans (not on sale)
Me and my momma! (She did an entire blog post on her picks from the Nordstrom Sale, if you missed it!) Her ruffle sleeve T-Shirt dress will probably be re-stocked in several colors. This one will be quick to sell out again!
Okay, now for some life updates! I realized the other day that I have done a terrible job of keeping you guys updated with the wedding stuff! Chris and I did book our venue, and the big day will be June 2, 2018 in Charleston, S.C.! Right away we knew that we wanted to have our wedding in Charleston… Chris and I have been going on vacations there ever since we started dating back in 2012. It holds a very special place in our hearts, plus it’s just so darn BEAUTIFUL that we couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. The venue that we picked out is everything this southern gal has ever dreamed of – a cute little Charleston house with a wraparound porch. I can’t wait to show you! 🙂
As far as planning goes, we’ve booked the florist and the band, and are in the process of booking the caterer. Yesterday, I put together some little gift boxes for my bridesmaids (to ask “Will you be my bridesmaid?”) and I think they turned out really well! I plan on sharing those with you next week, once all the girls have received their boxes in the mail. As far as the wedding dress goes, I haven’t made any progress on that yet. To be honest, I don’t even know what style of dress I want…. yikes! If you guys have any advice for trying on dresses, I would love it!
On another note, something ELSE really exciting has happened recently that I’ve been bursting to tell you guys… Chris and I bought a house!!!!

That’s me in front of our new front door, lol! 🙂
I don’t even know where to begin to tell you guys the story behind this! It’s SO funny how God works, because growing up, I never in a million years thought that I would end up in Winston Salem, N.C. To be honest, when I initially decided to move here a little more than a year ago, I bawled my eyes out. I knew that it was the right decision for me and Chris, and while I was so excited to finally live in the same city as him, I truly loved Charlotte. I loved my friends, my apartment, the shopping, restaurants, nightlife, etc. I just KNEW I was going to hate Winston. I knew it! But I was wrong. I had a terrible experience moving out of my apartment in Charlotte, and when we got to Winston that day with all of our moving boxes, something sort-of clicked… I immediately felt at peace, like I was finally home. Winston is definitely a small town, but it is charming. People here are so friendly, they ask how your day is and they genuinely want to know. It’s such a small town that I take Winnie for a walk and run into five people I know, and spend an hour catching up with each one. I’ve come to love my little grocery store, my cozy apartment, the people in my apartment building, the Pure Barre instructors, the postman, the taco place down the street. Not only that, but moving here was the first time that Chris and I had lived in the same city in several years. I was worried that we would feel isolated from our family and friends, living far away from them, but instead, it’s forced us to be adventurous and make new memories in OUR new city. We began to realize how this sleepy little town is actually full of life… and we began to consider it our home. After we got engaged, we knew my lease was going to be up soon and it was time to look for a true home – a house – where we could put down our roots. After a LOT of searching, we found a house that we both loved. I’ll be moving in in about a month (get ready for some interior decorating posts!) and Chris will finish out his lease at his apartment and move in once we’re married. After living in small apartments for the past ten years, we can’t wait to finally have a driveway and a backyard for Winnie to run around in. We are both over the moon excited, even the smallest things like having an extra guest bedroom for our family and friends to stay in, feels like a huge blessing.
The point of all this is to let you guys know how much we appreciate you, and how excited we are to share this next chapter of our lives with you. Many of you have been here for me since the beginning, through the good and bad times, and it brings tears to my eyes to think of how supportive you’ve been throughout the years. I’ve said this in the past, but I consider you guys to be my real-life friends and a very valuable part of my life.
Anyway, on to the fun part. SORRY for making y’all wait so long to find out the giveaway winners, haha!!
