So my friend Emilie is my Nordstrom expert and I generally just buy what she tells me to because I have very little fashion sense, but this year I decided to pick out a few things myself.  Some are her favorites that I have copped as my own, but some I actually found all by myself!!  Be impressed.

Here’s the conundrum.  My husband and I are cutting WAYYYYYY back on spending this year to try and get rid of a few credit card bills, so massively stocking up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wasn’t the best choice for me. {SOB} My solution?  Send my Mom some “ideas” for my birthday in August and “strongly hint” to my hubby that there are a few things I would love if he was going to buy me a gift anyway.  #subtle

If you feel overwhelmed by the sale and need a little inspiration, here are all the things I begged for and should hopefully be receiving in a pretty little Nordstrom box on or around August 26th.

  1. BP. Scoop Neck Long Sleeved Tee – Such a great basic piece and an awesome price at less than $13!
  2. Street Level Python Print Tote – I am nowhere near a purse connoisseur and I tend to get everything dirty that I touch, so nothing fancy for me.  This is less than $40 and SO cute.  Super roomy inside.
  3. Chloe K Stripe Short Sweater Knit Tee – I just love this.  I finally gave in to the idea that roomier is better than clingy when it comes to clothes.  More comfortable and WAY more flattering.  Just over $20!
  4. Barefoot Dreams Drape Front Cardigan – Apparently this is the best cardigan eva.  I am not at all a jacket person (I feel like they are suffocating me), so roomy and comfy and warm cardigans are my jam.

_10840894

Lush ‘Perfect’ Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic – I love the classic look of this piece and decided to go with white so it will go with everything.  Super cute tucked in or worn long.  Less than $30 + FREE shipping!
