Beauty Picks I Own, Use & Love | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hi, friends! We've all fully dived into the Nordstrom Anniversary sale by now I think! ha! But if you haven't yet, you definitely need to check out the beauty sale. I am definitely NOT a beauty blogger or expert! However, over the years I have slowly found a few products that I truly love and was excited to see some of them included in the Anniversary Sale.  These are all things I have used for quite some time- absolutely nothing here is sponsored. This is all just my real, honest & true opinions / experiences! 

2 Affordable Outfits from the Anniversary Sale for MEN

I've got a little bit different post with a new face for y'all today! I convinced my husband, Jake, to pose for some blog pictures! If you know this man, you can definitely guess the begging I had to do! ha! There may or may not have been bribing in the form of a new gun purchase as well! ;) But for being the guy that's always behind the camera, I'd say he did pretty good in front of the camera too.

The Anniversary Sale isn't just a good time to buy clothes & shoes for yourself but also for your man! There are just as many great deals to find in the men's section. Since Jake is extremely busy with training right now [he's a U.S. Marine!] I do most of his shopping. I knew this sale was the perfect time to refresh some of his closet and grab him some new things at a discount!

Since he spends most days in cammies, I wanted to get him a few things I knew he could get good wear out of on the weekends! So I bought him 2 outfits: one for a casual date night and one for a morning workout. I know he will get a lot of wear out of all of these items and they can be reworn with tons of things he already has! Plus, they are seriously good deals! Everything [except the watch] is UNDER $70! Even the shoes!! 
Details, links and fit information is below the first picture of each outfit. 

Home Picks: What I Own & On My Wishlist | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I'm sure by now you've shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale clothes, shoes, bags & accessories until you're blue in the face. ha! I know I have! But there are SO many categories in the sale that include AMAZING deals! Today I want to share some of the best picks from the Home sale. First, I will share a few items I already own and love! Then below, I've got a few items that I have on my wishlist. There are lots of amazing brands at seriously discounted prices... Definitely take advantage, friends!

The Ultimate Fall Outfit Inspiration | 25 Outfit Try On Session from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Ok, friends! The day is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to everyone! In past years, all of the good things are always gone after the first day or two. So I highly recommend getting your shopping on as early as possible! I did a pretty lengthy try on session on Instagram a few days ago with all of the outfits from my purchase. I had SO many questions that I wanted to put it all in a blog post! Below is each outfit, what I'm wearing, how the sizing runs and links you can quickly shop & get things added to your cart! I wanted this to also serve as some outfit inspiration for how to style and pair these items. You might already have striped tops and plaids in your closet so hopefully this can be a guide you can reference in a few months when the temperatures finally CHILL. Literally! ;) So here are 25 sale outfits that you can shop now!

Ruffle Neck Floral Top: TTS / I'm wearing a small
If I had to pick my favorite three tops in the sale, this would definitely be one of them! It's the perfect Fall floral and I love the cold shoulder detail. A must!

I'm currently obsessed with raw edge hems and the angled cut on these is a bonus! They're also a great price ringing in under $50.

The slide slits on these booties are SO cute! Thinking about grabbing the grey color as well.

Hidden Gems from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Under $50 & Under $100

If you have checked my sale blog posts [or any other bloggers] covering the big Anniversary Sale, you've surely seen some of the most popular items: a striped teeaffordable cardigan and of course the Tory Burch boots. But there are literally thousands of items included in this sale & I feel like so many cute things get skipped over! Since many of the really popular items are either totally sold out or sold out in several sizes, I wanted to share some of my hidden gem finds. The top group is all under $50 and the bottom group is all under $100! The best part about these finds is that I haven't really seen any bloggers chatting about them so they are still available in every [or almost!] size! 

I've made these collages super simple to shop! Just click directly on the item you're interested in to go to its page! Most all of these also come in multiple colors so everyone can find what fits them best!

The day is finally here! I'ts the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I've been saving money for this sale & let me tell you, I don't think I saved enough! ;) ha! I shared a preview of the sale earlier this week here & even that doesn't even do it justice! There are SO many super cute things on MAJOR discount! Normally I focus on things I want to grab for Fall / Winter. BUT, there are lots of things that are cute for now! I don't know where you live, but it's still going to be warm for a while where I'm at. So I am going to get lots of good use out of things like this staple tee and this ruffled romper before the weather cools off. But don't get me wrong, I am definitely still grabbing lots of things for cooler weather! Essentially, I am buying what I need for the next 6+ months. 

Since this sale features all NEW arrivals it's the best time to get the newest trends for the next season at the absolute best prices! For example, this is the best deal you will find on Tory Burch boots for sure. And I thought last year's version was kind of cute but holy cow, I LOVE this year's style! In addition to all of the top picks from the sale, I'm including 3 tips for shopping today. These are things I've learned the hard way from shopping the sale the past 4 years!
