Moody Picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Under $50

Happy Friday Friends and Happy Anniversary Sale! 

Now the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public, I wanted to put together a quick post with some cute finds that are both still in stock and under $50. I’m really glad I did this because I never noticed these leopard heels or this Swiss dot blouse available in several colors. And both of these are so cute.  I know so many of you are hoping that they restock some of the best sellers from last week.  I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed because there are a few more things that I would like to grab for myself. 

Let me know what are some key items that you’re looking for today, so I can keep an eye out for you.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 - My Top 5 Picks & Try-on Haul


Good morning friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here for all cardholders and you finally get to shop the sale you’ve been hearing about for a few weeks now! This is the best time to stock up on closet staples and items that you will need during the fall season.  My favorite part of the sale is that you save a bunch of money on some items that never go on sale like any of the Barefoot Dreams throws and cardigans and Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. The only thing that I don’t love about the sale is that so many item sell out super FAST! So if you see something that catches your eye or if you’re on the fence about an item, then just grab it now and return it later!

Anyways, I wanted to put together a quick post that would be both helpful and informative for you instead of listing a bunch of items that you just don’t need. Below is a list of my top picks from the sale. These are items that will last you more than just the season and you can wear some of them now and transition well into fall/winter.  I have some of these pieces from last year and I'm very happy to say that I didn't need to buy too many items this year.  

Here are my TOP 5 PICKS from the sale: 

1. Pleated Midi Skirt - A beautiful staple piece that is very well made and fits perfectly (already sold out, but I found a cute amazon dupe HERE).

2. Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw - This throw never goes on sale, so this is the best time to buy one.  It's super soft, comfortable and worth the splurge.  I just bought one yesterday for the first time because I've alway wanted one.

3. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings - These are the best leggings out there and definitely the most popular.  These leggings rarely go on sale, so this is the best time to buy them. I bought my first pair last year and they really are worth the money.  They suck you in just at the right places.

4. Leopard Cardigan - I bought this sweater earlier this year and it sold out then.  So I was pretty happy to see them bring it back for the sale This will sell out pretty quickly during the sale because it's comfortable, the print is perfect and the price is under $50.

5. Booties - Every blogger has raved about these booties since the sale got started.  I ordered myself a pair because it looks like a really well made bootie.  I love the cut out style and the heel is pretty reasonable.  It comes in several other colors and even a couple snakeskin prints.  I'm pretty sure it will sell out as well.

Here are a few more pieces that I'm loving right now:


Next up is the try-on haul.  Yesterday, I stopped by the Nordstrom store at St. Johns Town Center to shop and I put together a fun styling session for you all.  I found a few items that I love and created a few outfits around those specific pieces.  I wanted to share you how you could wear certain pieces serval ways to get more bang for your buck.  Unfortunately my store doesn’t have a huge inventory, but I was able to create a few different looks with the items that were available. I will also upload this try-on haul via video on Instagram Stories and save to my Highlights, so you can view them when they expire. Let’s dive in to today’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try-on haul!

My Size Reference: I’m 5’7 and I typically wear size 6/28 jeans, small or mediums in tops and dresses.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE – PLEATED MIDI SKIRT
I picked out this skirt because of the print of course and because of its versatility.  This is a skirt that you can definitely wear now and then continue to add layers to take you into the fall and winter season. I'm wearing a small in the skirt and it fits true to size.

LOOK #1
Cardigan (small) / Lace Trim Cami (small) / Snakeskin Trim Wool Hat (sold out, but linking similar one here) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)

LOOK #2
Chambray Shirt (small) / Lace Trim Cami (small) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)

LOOK #3
Wool Blend Cardigan (small) / Stripe V-Neck Tee (small) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)








NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE – 10-INCH HIGH WAIST SKINNY JEANS(BUTTON FRONT)
I missed out on these jeans last year, so I had to grab them.  I wanted to get a really good pair of jeans during the sale and this one does not disappoint.  It fits true to size - I'm wearing a 28 in these.  I have heard that it stretches out pretty easily and that you need to size down.  So if you're worried about that, then size down.  I love the style of these jeans - the high waist and button front is right up my alley.  They are also under $100.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE – LACE TRIM SATIN CAMISOLE TOP
This lace cami will probably sell out pretty quickly.  It's such a cute piece that you can wear alone with jeans or under a cardigan or blazer for work.  It comes in several colors and has adjustable straps. The price point is also good since it's only $25. I'm wearing a small in the camisole.

Moody Picks: My Top Picks from the #NSale Catalog & Sneak Peeks

Good Morning Friends! I'm sure by now that you've already heard more than you need to know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! And you're going to hear a lot more since we still have a few more days until Early Access starts. As I mentioned before, Early Access officially starts on Friday, July 12th at 12:30 pm EST and Public Access starts on Friday, July 19th. 

I've had a couple of weeks to preview the catalog and there are so many things that I'm loving right now.  I seriously can't wait to see the entire sale once it goes live on Friday especially since the catalog is a small portion of the items that will be available.  I've heard that there are over 10,000+ pieces included in the sale this year, so get ready to be wowed.  Anyways, I thought it would be fun to put together a quick post of some of my top favorite picks from the catalog along with a few sneak peeks.

Unfortunately you can’t shop these items now, but the items will be averrable when the sale going live on Friday, July 12! You can always can bookmark this page & the links will be available when the sale starts. And remember that Nordstrom has an awesome return policy, so if you aren't sure about the size, just buy multiples and you can send back what doesn’t work for you.

In The Mood: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 - What You Need To Know


Hey Friends - it’s that time again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here and I’m getting super excited.  This sale is like Christmas in July because you get so many great deals on brand new fall/winter items for up to 40% off.  This is the best time to stock up on some of your favorite fall basics and splurge-worthy pieces like boots, jackets, handbags and high-end denim. And you get major discounts on brands like SPANX, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Free People, NARS, North Face and so much more!  Just like last year, I want to give you all a quick run-down of all of the details that you need to know to be fully prepared to shop without any hassles.

DATES YOU NEED TO KNOW

July 9 – Nordy Club Icons Shop In-Store
July 10-11 – Nordy Club Icons / Ambassadors Shop In-Store & Online on July 11
July 12-18 (at 12:30 p.m. EST) – Early Access Begins for Nordstrom Cardholders
July 19 – Anniversary Sale Opens to the Public
August 5 – Prices are back to Full Price

HOW TO SHOP EARLY ACCESS

The best way to shop the sale before everything sells out is making sure that you have Early Access.  Nordstrom Cardholders get to shop the sale a week earlier than everyone else.  And this is key takeaway because most of the best sellers are sold out within a matter of days.  So, if you want to shop early, then you will need to apply for a Nordstrom Credit Card.

If you don’t already have a Nordstrom Credit Card, then you will need to sign up here for the early access. And if you apply for the Nordstrom Card before July 10th, then you will get a $60 bonus note that can be used at a later time. 

SHOPPING STRATEGY

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be very overwhelming, especially if you don’t have a plan in place.  I think number one thing that you should do is to assess your fall wardrobe and make a list of items that you need to add/replace in your closet. And the second thing you need to do is to set an overall budget for yourself and really try to spend too much money.  It’s super easy to get swept up in the excitement of the sale, believe me I know.  I’ve bought and returned a plenty of items in the past that weren’t within my budget and that I ultimately didn’t need.  Pro Tip: Buy Now, Return Later - With that being said, don’t be afraid to order multiples sizes since some items sell out really fast and the shipping/return is free.  Be sure to focus on items that you use regularly and take advantage of stocking up on wardrobe basics and any home items.  This is also a good time to start thinking of holiday gifts.

CATALOG PREVIEW

The best way to get ready for the sale is to take a sneak peek of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Catalog! The catalog will give you a good idea of some of the items that will be available even though there will be so much more.  Pro Tip: See Details Online Now - You can take the item number from the catalog and plug it into the search bar to get more details about each product on the Nordstrom site. 

Here are 12 items from the catalog that I definitely have my eye on so far. Let me know what items caught your eye! (Please note that the items won't be live until the sale starts on Friday).



WHAT SHOULD I BUY?

I’ve been shopping the Anniversary Sale for a few years now and I’ve noticed that Nordstrom tends to bring back some of the same items.  They may tweek an item here and there, but for the most part some are the same like these High-waisted Zella Leggings, this super soft Plush Throw, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings and this Madewell Ryder Cardigan.  This year I plan to be very focused on things that I need to replace in my closet and a few items that I missed out on last year.  I plan to look for a really good pair of jeans, a couple of sweaters, basic t-shirts, a skirt and a couple of shoes.  I also plan to pick up a few beauty items and the infamous Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw because I've wanted one for a while now and it never goes on sale.

I’m so excited to cover the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Stay tuned for a huge try-on session on my blog and my LIKEtoKNOW.it page as soon as the sale goes live on Friday, July 12th at 12:30pm EST! I also plan to post the videos to my Instagram stories for additional references.  And be sure to check back on this post as I update the blog with additional #NSale content over the next few weeks.

Mood to Shop: Fourth of July Style Inspiration

Happy Saturday, sweet friends! Can you believe that Fourth of July is next week? June flew by so fast that I almost forgot that we have a major holiday coming up.  I haven't even thought about my plans for the day yet let alone my outfit ideas. For the past couple of years, my family would get together for a backyard barbecue, a swim in the pool and then all head out to watch the fireworks.  However this year is going to be a little different since the holiday falls on a Thursday and most of us have to work the next day.  We're still trying to figure out the actual plans, but in the meantime I'm planning out a few different outfits choices for any scenario.  I want to make sure I look patriotic and festive, but not too over the top.  So I figured that I would put together some Fourth of July fashion ideas for myself and wanted to share it with you all in case you also needed some help.  And the best part is that all of these picks are under $50!  Check them out below and let me know what you plan to wear on the Fourth of July!
