I would make a wish list now when you’re logged into the Nordstrom website, so you can easily add items to your cart when it’s your time to shop.

BAREFOOT DREAMS BLANKET:
The Barefoot Dreams in the wild throw blanket tends to sell out each year especially in certain colorways, so I encourage you to get one as soon as you can shop the sale if you don’t already have it. I have it in the camel and black colorway as well as the tan and cream color way. I have one downstairs on our couch and I sleep with one every single night. It’s so soft, cozy and chic – a blanket you actually want to show off!
FOR THE OFFICE
For those of you working in an office setting, here are some tops, dresses and pants I think are really pretty, versatile and timeless to add to your closet.
tee with Swiss dot sleeves | Spanx black skinny pants | mustard midi dress | black double breasted blazer | Veronica Beard white puff sleeve top | camel blazer w/ gold buttons| pintuck v-neck camisole | black racerback camisole | black flutter sleeve tee |
BRAS & UNDERWEAR
I got my first pair of natori briefs during last year’s sale and they’re my favorite sleep undies (yes, I wear a new pair every night after showering) and the most comfortable cotton ones I own. They have a great level of stretch but are a perfectly soft, breathable cotton.
WORKOUT & ATHLEISURE
This is one of my favorite categories this year because everything is by brands I love and already own.
The alo airlift 7/8 leggings are my tried and true favorites – the ones I splurge on. I have them in two colors already and this blue is so fun! I have not tried their sports bra but love the longline style that matches the leggings. I wear a size small in these leggings.
ZELLA live-in high waisted leggings are a staple in any legging collection – they’re great for lounging, yoga and to wear with tunics!
I was thrilled to see the IVL pink scalloped sports bra and IVL scalloped leggings as I own and adore both in black and white. I wear a 6 in the leggings (but would prefer a 4) and an 8 in the bra (size up).
alo airlift 7/8 leggings | Spanx black leggings | alo sports bra (blue) | ZELLA live-in high waisted leggings | Spanx white tennis skirt | Zella breezy sport bra | black cropped tee | IVL pink scalloped sports bra | zella low cut socks | IVL scalloped leggings (pink) |
So much good denim this year – I can’t wait to try all of these on. I always get at least one pair of jeans during the anniversary sale.
good American good legs jeans | good American good waist jeans | LEVIS 721 high waisted skinny jeans | AG Farrah high Waites skinny jeans | MOTHER the looker high waisted cropped jeans | Paige Hoxton skinny jeans with raw hem | Paige verdugo ripped jeans | Paige Cindy ripped straight jeans | black high waisted ankle skinny jeans |
I don’t need any jackets this year (Lord knows I have quite the collection), but these are my picks this year. It has rained so much in Houston this summer that I swear I could justify another raincoat.
SWEATERS & TOPS
I hate the thought of buying sweaters when it’s 95 degrees outside, but zi really liked several this year and plan to try them on if they’re not sold out by the time I order. I also included a few tees that can be worn now and the fun take on the nap dress we’ve all come to love.
oversized one shoulder sweater (black) |light gray popcorn sweater | funnel neck ribbed sweater (khaki) | marine layer cream textured sweater | black smocked puff sleeved off the shoulder top | light gray sweater | nap dress (light gray) | free people white tee
I’m not big on shoes. I don’t own a ton of pairs and of the pairs I have, I wear the same few over and over (and over). My shoe selections are always small because how many pairs of booties or running shoes do we really need each year? Having said that, here are some thoughts:
I have a pair of on cloud running shoes and they’re all I wear when we go to the park, on walks with Teddy, etc. I love the way they feel – super supportive.
I have heard that the adidas ultra boost are the ultimate running & cross training shoe. I’m not a runner but I’ve heard enough positive feedback that I feel confident recommending them.
I have not purchased booties since like 2018. I did order a pair in 2019 but the fit didn’t work for me so I retuned them. However, I really love these classic Steven madden tan booties and will likely order a pair hoping they’ll work for me.
I will have posts publishing throughout this week with my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks for jewelry & accessories, kids, beauty and more! Happy shopping and thank you again for your support. You can also see my picks on my LIKETOKNOW.IT page or in the app!
