Closet Essentials to Buy During the Nordstrom Sale

Happy Friday y’all! I am really looking forward to the weekend! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public beginning today! I’m hoping they do some re-stocks on a lot of the great basics they had during early access. This year I didn’t do a lot of shopping during the sale. I bought mostly closet basics- like a pair of denim, a pair of flats, and a few neutral sweaters. Today I wanted to share some closet basics that are great to grab during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!


JACKETS & BLAZERS | (L to R: utility jacket, Patagonia vest, Barbour jacket, J.Crew blazer, oversized plaid blazer) This sale is a great time to grab an outerwear piece for fall/winter! SO many name brands are on sale that almost NEVER go on sale!

CARDIGANS & SWEATERS | (L to R: v-neck bell sleeve sweater, ribbed cardigan, side slit sweater, grey cardigan) You can’t go wrong with a cardigan or a few sweaters!

TOPS & BLOUSES | (L to R: plaid top, button back top, blue blouse, striped bell sleeve top) There are so many great work wear tops along with tops that will be great to wear now & into the cooler months!

BRAS & UNDERWEAR | (L to R: Zella sports bra, Natori bra, hanky panky underwear) There are great name brand bras and udnerwear that are on sale! I love grabbing a few sports bras and stocking up on my favorite underwear during the sale.

ACCESSORIES | Whether you’re looking to grab a cozy scarf, a designer bag you’ve had your eye on or even a new piece of jewelry, you can’t go wrong by shopping the accessories section of the sale!

JEANS & LEGGINGS | (L to R: Paige denim, Trouvé leather leggings, Wit & Wisdom denim, Zella live-in leggings) I’m a tried and true denim girl, so I always get excited to see what denim is available during the sale! I bought my first pair of Zella leggings during early access!

SHOES | (L to R: leopard mules, Nike sneakers, neutral booties, Nike Air Max Thea sneakers, over the knee boots, Tory Burch flats, Adidas sneakers) Shoes might be my favorite thing to shop during the sale! I love the endless options of booties, boots & sneakers!

  • 24 weeks with our baby boy🤰🏼💙 it’s crazy to think we get to meet him in just 16 weeks, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! 👶🏻I feel grateful that I have had a healthy & happy pregnancy but, to be honest, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. As a first time mom, I have these feelings of immense sadness as the last half of this pregnancy is going to be nothing like I had envisioned. There have been a lot of tears over the fact that many exciting moments can no longer be shared with those closest to us. I know others have it much, much worse but I’ve learned it’s ok to be sad & to feel these emotions. I’m upset that I am no longer able to have a baby shower to celebrate our first born, I’m sad I don’t get to hug our family and watch their faces as they see my growing bump. I’m upset that these last few months of just the two of us look completely different - more time spent in our house quarantined and less time having date nights at our favorite spots and doing the things we want before baby arrives. I mourn the fact that our families may not get to meet our baby boy in the hospital the way we always talked about. But with any situation, I have cried it out (a lot) and decided to take it one day at a time and to find joy in each day💙 And ya know what? There’s a lot of joy amidst the chaos. It brings me so much joy to feel his daily movement (and my heart nearly burst when Nick felt him kick for the first time).🥰I am overjoyed that we have such a strong support system near and far. I love that we get to spend more time at home spoiling our fur babies. I find solace knowing that there are so many pregnant mamas out there feeling these exact emotions & we share a common experience and bond! I am grateful for those that are on the front lines caring for everyone. I know we have the best doctors carrying us through this uncertain time. We are strong mamas and we will get through this! 💕 so, I challenge you to find the join in each day no matter your situation! #24weekspregnant #24weeks #pregnancy #2ndtrimester #stylethebump #bumpstyle #pregnant #pregnantduringcovid19 #pregnantblogger #thebump #boymom #expecting #expectingmom
