It is here friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has finally arrived. This sale has a very special meaning to me. Each year, my mom and I plan, preview and shop the sale together no matter where we are. If we are both here in KC, we go into the store and shop for hours (always treating ourselves to a cookie afterwards). If we have to do it online, we text and call making sure she has all the sizes needed to purchase. My mom has always been a huge supporter of my blog and my fashion sense so I want to say a big THANK YOU to her for always helping me get what I need for this platform.
Anyway, back to the sale! I decided to pick about 6 items in 4 categories to show to you: best sellers, best deals, my top picks and the surprise category Trent's picks! He was interested in what all the hype was so I told him to pick favorites for the post. As soon as he got on, I heard him go "oh that's cool" "oh love that"..... needless to say I think I created a monster lol.
Best Sellers: These are items I think will sell out fast! I snagged a few and looking to see if I can snag some more later on.
All these picks have been on my mind and in my cart since the catalog. Great mix of fall essentials and fun patterns! Leopard is still a huge print this seasons and plaids and bright colors are making the debut also. To shop these: just click on the photo! It will take you straight to the page.
Things that came home with me: plaid flats and leopard midi skirt!
Best Deals: These are items I felt you got the most bang for your buck! Shoe picks and cozy cardigans definitely made this list!
On my blog, I try to keep things in a range of $20-$60 items because I never want to break the bank. While I do love to shop and appreciate high end items, it take a lot for me to buy them unless I know I will get use out of them. These items are classics that everyone should have. Easy throw and go cardigan, staple (and v comfortable) knee high boot, fun lace up boots, date night/work dress and a fun power blazer. The knee high boots might be my favorite pick because I got a similar pair last year. SO WORTH THE MONEY and make me feel like a boss babe.
Things that came home with me: the lace up boots because they are finally the perfect pair, leather and waterproof!!
Kristin's Top Picks: These are things I either A. bought right away or B. still on my radar and on my wish list.
These are my favorite items from the sale so far! There are awesome finds but these definitely reflect my own personal style. From the pullover to the bright sweaters, these are items that will live in your closet for many seasons. I own at least 3 pairs of the zella leggings because they are the perfect amount of stretch and aren't see through! All these pieces are great quality and on sale for great price points.
Things that came home with me: the green BP sweater!
Things I already own and love: leather jacket, Zella leggings and pullover sweatshirt
Trent's Top Picks: These are items that were Trent's favorite so far! Feel like these reflect the cool style he is evolving into!
Trent had so much fun picking his items. These are totally his new found style and I have to say I'm a little obsessed. Maybe he should be the blogger in our family? lol anyway, Trent always likes to have a mix of nice button ups to wear with dress pants or jeans mixed with some sporty items. Love his picks and perfect for upcoming gifts!
Things that came home with him: the navy cardigan!
