#NSALE LAST DAY TODAY: 12 Things I Bought

My friends, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially over at midnight tonight, and if you haven’t capitalized yet, it’s time to get serious.  Check out the 12 things I bought today before they go back to full price at midnight.  The clock is ticking y’all…


  1. POINTY-TOE FLATS  //  Pointy-toe flats are the most versatile pair of shoes you can own.  They can be worn with everything from sheath dresses at the offices to ripped jeans on the weekends.
  2. COPPER CANDLES  //  I LOVE these candles (also come in a gold version) and snagged them for my kitchen which has lots of copper accents.  They also make for a wonderful hostess gift!
  3. CASHMERE CARDIGAN  //  I bought this cardigan last year in the oatmeal hue, and wore it so much in and out of the office that I had to go back and snag the grey version as well.  It comes in black and navy too!
  4. PONTE KNIT SHEATH DRESS  //  This beauty comes in three beautiful colors and in a comfy knit fabric and chic silhouette, it’ll be a workwear staple all-year-round.
  5. OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS  //  I bought a near-identical pair from this brand last winter in brown, and wore them constantly so on the first day of the sale I immediately snagged these in black.  After receiving the black pair and knowing that I absolutely LIVE in over-the-knee boots from October through March, I couldn’t help but go back for the grey pair today before losing out on that sub-$150 price tag.  I KNOW, I HAVE A PROBLEM.
  6. PENCIL SKIRT  //  After purchasing the gorgeous Hugo Boss suit featured in last week’s post, I knew it would be crazy not to complete the set with this coordinating pencil skirt.  The fabric and quality is superb, and these silhouettes will never go out of style.
  7. FAUX FUR THROW BLANKET  //  I’ve been on the hunt for a super cozy blanket like this for reading and watching movies in the living room or for crisp nights having a drink on the roof deck.  I think I found the one!
  8. HERRINGBONE MILITARY COAT  //  I’ve had my eye on this beauty since day one of the sale and finally pulled the trigger.  I know I’ll wear it all winter long because it’s one of those goes-with-everything colors.  Also, as you know, anything military-inspired is likely a winner in my book.
  9. BLACK CAT-EYE SUNGLASSES  //  I don’t know how I missed these beauties before, but I’m SO GLAD I spotted them before the end of the sale.  Retro cat-eye sunglasses are having a major moment right now and I’m obsessed with the gold detailing on these!
  10. SUPER GREENS SUPPLEMENT POWDER  //  I’ve taken Perricone MD supplements for years (absolutely LOVE their travel booster supplements) and I’m excited to have these powder packets for adding to morning smoothies.  Perfect no-brainer way to make sure you’re getting all of those greens without measuring out spinach, kale, blah blah blah every day.
  11. LEATHER MOTO WITH FAUX FUR TRIM  //  This is another beauty I’ve had my eye on throughout the sale, and at a price tag under $100 (!!!) I just had to pull the trigger.  I know this will be on constant rotation all fall and winter.  Just too dang cute.
  12. LONG-SLEEVE TEE //  GUYS, this tee comes in ELEVEN colors and is LESS THAN $20!  I bought it in three colors last year during the sale and I just went back for two more.  I’ve worn them CONSTANTLY, they’re the perfect fit and cut, and the quality has held up BEAUTIFULLY over the past year.  This one’s a no-brainer.
