On Friday afternoon I braved the sale and went to Nordstrom. I had just checked out with my goodies when the sky parted and the bottom fell out. It was pouring. We were hosting friends for dinner that night and I was wearing my new Joie sandals. So, I did what any good Mississippian would do… I took off my sandals, put them in the Nordstrom bag, and sprinted barefoot across the parking lot to my car. I was absolutely soaking wet but still felt like a winner because of the great pieces I snagged. Here are my favorites:
$49 during the sale and $79 after. I LOVE this and will absolutely be living in it all fall. It’s super soft, long in the back, and hangs perfectly. It’s one of those “feels like a robe” but I can wear it in public items. It’s sold out in orange but I actually like the gray better and it’s still in stock!
why it’s great: You can’t tell from the picture but the longer side is actually an overlay that makes it so flattering. It’s extremely forgiving but still cuts in on the sides. Translation: Hourglass figure but can eat the extra fries. I also really like the high/low cut of the hemline.
I just couldn’t resist these big stripes and an even bigger ruffle
$33 now and goes to $48 after the sale. Why it’s great: It’s black, soft, comfortable, and forgiving.
$48 and goes to $78 after the sale. Why it’s awesome: It’s great for this sweltering heat we are having in NC right now. Fall items are great but I also wanted something to wear now. I’ve never had anything like this before and was excited to add it to my closet. It’s a little bit risqué but I think the big floral print and subdued color keep it on the appropriate side. Especially with flats…I also really love the synched waistline.
I’m definitely not done with my shopping spree. It’s like going back to school clothes! Remember when you had that one shopping spree where you stocked up every year at the end of the summer? I lived for that shopping trip! The #Nsale is just the adult version. haha
Have fun perusing the sale and here’s to smooth coffee and short Mondays…. cheers.
