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.

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!

Amazon has Clif Energy Bars (12 pack) for just $9.29 or $.77 per bar, free shipping included!  This is a fantastic price for these bars, traditionally we see them go on sale for around $1 per bar.  We like to have these around if we need a quick on-the-go snack or when we will be in the car for a long time.  My husband recently went on a 2-day bike trip with the world’s tiniest backpack, so we packed a few of these for meals.  Filling but they didn’t take up too much space.

The White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin Walnut are the flavors I find at this price.

Here’s how to take advantage of this deal:

  • Click here to order, the original price will be $9.78
  • Choose the “Subscribe & Save” option on the right hand side of the screen
  • Free shipping is included

This drops your price down to just $9.29 shipped!

If you have Amazon Mom or do more than five Subscribe & Save subscriptions in a month you can increase your discount from 15% – 20%. Please check out the details for those two programs for more information. This would bring your total as low as $8.31 + free shipping! This makes them just $.69 per bar.

If you’re interested in signing up for more Subscribe & Save items or are close to hitting five items, check out the main Subscribe & Save page for all participating items.

Please remember: Amazon prices can change very quickly.  Please verify that the price is the same as what I post before purchasing.  As of 7/24/15 at 2 PM, this listed price was accurate.

I was browsing over at Nordstrom this morning and found one of my very favorite clothing staples on sale! This is absolutely one of my “Must-Have Items” this year and last.  This is one of the best items in my closet (I have 3 colors!). It goes with everything, is easy to dress up and fits me even when my weight fluctuates up and down.  I love it!

I’ve never been a giant fan of jackets.  I’ll wear a heavy coat the two days out of the year that it snows where I live, but otherwise they just feel weird.  I’m not sure if it’s because I have weird boxy shoulders or my arms are too long (I’m like a monkey), but every jacket I have tried just never fits right.  I am okay with some fleece jackets, as they don’t tend to be so stiff and robot-like, but I’m even picky about those.  I know, I know.

But Melody, you live in a giant barren ice desert during the winter, we’re dying to know what you wear!!  Cardigans, my friends.  Sometimes sweaters, sometimes long-sleeved 1/2-zip pullovers to the gym, but mostly cardigans.  Because I despise jackets, these cardigans have to pull a lot of weight.  They have to be fashionable (because that’s totally my middle name) and they have to be WARM.

The Bobeau Asymmetrical Fleece Wrap Cardigan in Heather Purple Radiance or Mod Turquoise is just $19.90 + FREE shipping, available in small, medium and large depending on the color.  Regular price on this is $58, but it is generally always on sale for $39.90.  This is an awesome price!  LOVE these colors.

You can also snag the Bobeau Print Fleece Cardigan in Black/White Diamond for just $23.90 + FREE shipping.

I’ve spent so much time stalking the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale searching for the best deals for you and poking around my fave fashion bloggers and I’ve found some of THE CUTEST and awesomely-priced items.  Remember, the products in this sale can and do sell out and aren’t restocked, so don’t hesitate if you see something you love.

1. Ten Sixty Sherman Thermal Henley just $24.90 + FREE shipping ($38 after sale) – This is a GREAT basic piece and comes in five colors.

2. Dreamers By Debut Cowl Neck Sweater just $27.90 + FREE shipping ($44 after sale) – This is ADORABLE and such an amazing price.  There were a few colors available, but they are selling out fast!

3. Halogen Zip Detail Pullover Sweater just $44.90 + FREE shipping ($68 after sale) – I will DIE if I don’t get this.  The zip detail makes it so trendy, but not so outrageous that even the most non-trendiest of us can pull it off.

4. artee couture Plaid Cardigan Coat just $49.90 + FREE shipping ($74 after sale) – I just love this!  It’s a great length and could be worn with just about anything, even a sweet little black dress or over leggings or jeans and a thermal.  If you are looking to jump into the coat game but don’t want to spend a fortune, this is a great place to start!

5. Caslon Two Pocket Knit Tunic (regular/petite) just $44.90 + FREE shipping ($68 after sale) – This is a great length and comes in about a billion colors (solids and stripes).  Would be perfect over leggings or jeans and could be worn without a jacket on the less-cold fall and winter days.

Please share your favorite finds with me, I could search forever!  Remember, shipping and returns are always FREE.

I am so much better at getting groceries delivered to my house.  I go into the grocery store for bananas and come out with 10 whole chickens, 3 pounds of asparagus, a king size candy bar, 27 rolls of toilet paper and a bag of Doritos.  I have no impulse control!

I placed my first few Amazon Prime Pantry orders over the last few months and was thoroughly impressed.  And the last few times I have posted my fave deals, you guys have gone CRAZY.

What is Prime Pantry?

Prime Pantry allows Amazon Prime members to shop for household essentials in popular pack sizes that are cost prohibitive to ship for free.  All you have to do is add a Prime Pantry item to your cart, and you’re on your way to filling your box.  Pantry items come in great low prices and you can often find coupons for additional savings.

Pantry boxes are large and can hold up to 45 pounds, or four cubic feet, and ship at a flat rate of $5.99. When you browse Pantry items it will also show you the percentage of your box it will fill.

Untitled

I poked around a little bit and found out that if you buy four participating products, you will get FREE shipping (awesome!) which saves $5.99 on your order.  The products that are included are extremely low-priced and there are TONS to choose from.  Add four items to get free shipping and then fill in with needs from your grocery list.  Super easy, fantastic prices and an amazing way to supplement your grocery budget!

Here are some of my favorites:
