Anytime I need inspiration for fashion or gifts I go to my Nordstrom Wish List. I keep a year round selection of needs and wants for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas, and any special occasion for myself, family and friends. This year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I was able to pick up a few items for the ones on my Christmas List and made a purchase or two for myself to celebrate mine and my husbands Anniversary 😍 I Hope everyone had a blast shopping the Sale and got some really great deals!
Rosanna Days of the Week Porcelain Travel Mug
Kendra Scott Lee Small Filigree Drop Earrings
Zella Body Spark Sports Bra in Grey Graphite Space Dye
Zella Live-In High Waist Leggings in Black Kinetic
Nordstrom Two-Way Seamless Tank in Red Cerise
Check out this super cute travel cup by Rosanna. It sold out quickly at Nordstrom but is still available here. I have purchased several Rosanna items in the past and can always find cute gifts from the selections at Nordstrom. Check out other Rosanna items here. Purchased for $16.80.
The Kendra Scott Small Filigree Drop Earrings are gorgeous and more beautiful in person than the pics online can show. I purchased the gold ones and find that they go with absolutely everything casual and dressy and were $20 off at the Anniversary Sale. Cha-ching! Purchased for $35.90.
The Zella Body Spark Sports Bra in Grey Graphite Space Dye was so cute online. In person and on my body a little less exciting…through no fault of the garment. !!!! I ordered an XL because normally I am in most tops, however, I believe I could have done a LG and hope to shrink it a bit in the wash. Still, it makes me want to work out so it fills a purpose in the hopes it eventually looks cute on my body. Purchased for $28.90.
The Zella Live-In High Waist Leggings in Black Kinetic are soooo cute!!!!! They are super long and petite individuals will either need to wear them baggy at the ankle or get them altered. I am going to do the later if I cannot shrink them a bit. They smooth out everything. They are not as giving as other Live-In Leggings of the same brand. The material is a lot like that of compression hose or leotards so you want them to fit well without gathers. I don’t want to return them because they are so precious! Because I got them on sale I am willing to alter them if necessary. A petite version would have been a great option for these. I ordered a LG and am a 14 in pants and jeans. Purchased for $45.90. Update: Drying the leggings worked perfectly and they shrank slightly.
The Nordstrom Two-Way Seamless Tank in Red Cerise was a beautiful color! I ordered a LG. When I pulled it out of the package it looked like it would only fit a Barbie Doll! So I sent it back without trying it on. I had two others purchased last year and later saw they too looked small. When you put them on they expand quite a bit (super stretchy). I regretted sending the other back so soon without giving it a chance so I will be looking to buy this color again. Purchased for $20.90 and returned.
Well, I did enough damage at that sale! I wanted to include a note saying that I have missed contributing to this blog. This last year my mom had a major stroke and I have been her caregiver full-time since April 2017. My siblings and I have been working together to take care of all the details involved with getting her affairs in order. She has come to TN to live with my family and we are trying to get settled and move into a daily routine. Therefore, at first, my entries may seem sporadic until I get the hang of multitasking. I am also going to be doing posts on Caregiving and the details that I have learned since begining this new role. More on that at a later time. Enjoy the upcoming Sales as we start gearing up for the Holidays and cyber chaos!
Until then, stay rooted in each other!
