The 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Top Sale Picks!

Posted in Shopping

Hey people! Great news, if you aren’t a Nordstrom card holder, there are only two more days until you snag the great deals too for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I went on Sunday (you might have seen this if you follow me on Snapchat) and found some of the best pieces at the best prices. So today, I’m giving you a peek at some of these deals if you haven’t already found them for yourself.

So here are some of my favorites from the sale and how I would style them together. I’m hoping to go back tonight or tomorrow to pick up some beauty steals as well!

NSale Poncho Top

Treasure & Bond Fringed Stripe Poncho

Tresure&Bond Fringe Striped Poncho | Hinge Wool Round Crown Hat 

Carlson t-shirt

Carlson Relaxed Slub Knit U-Slub Tee

Caslon Relaxed Slub Knit U-Neck Tee – in Navy and Ivory Print

Guys, I have owned and tested out my fair share of t-shirts, but holy moly this might take the cake on being freakin’ awesome! I’m 5’10” and often struggle finding t-shirts that are long enough to give that nice relaxed look. I am also loving this print – almost looks like little half moons. For $17.90 on sale, this t-shirt is a steal!

Nordstrom Sale Fall Outfit

Pleione Snap Front Long Vest | Caslon Zip Back High/Low Tunic Sweater | Hinge Wool Round Crown Hat 

Pleione Snap Front Vest

Gray Vest

Pleione Snap Front Long Vest

This vest is SO comfortable. It’s literally like a puffer vest on the inside but looks like a chic trench vest on the outside. for $89.90, it is the perfect piece for fall and winter!

Caslon Plaid Shirt Dress

Caslon Plaid Cotton Two-Pocket Shirtdress

Relaxed Plaid Top

Caslon Plaid Cotton Two-Pocket Shirtdress | Hinge Wool Round Crown Hat 

Cashmere Poncho

Cashmere Wrap

Halogen Ottoman Rib Cashmere Wrap (available in six colors)!

This cashmere wrap is perfect for traveling! You can wrap it up in your purse and then if you get cold on a plane or in the car, you can take it out and wrap it around yourself as I did above. It’s so soft and even though it’s warm, very light weight too!

This weekend was yet another relaxing and productive one. My fiancé and I grabbed sushi and drinks Friday night, ran errands on Satruday then went to church and had dinner at a local cafe. Then we took these blog photos in the St. Anthony Main area with a view of Minneapolis’s skyline. St. Anthony Main is my absolute favorite area in all of Minneapolis – it is beautiful, historic, and has great food/drinks! It is also home to our church and where we will be getting married next year, so maybe my favoritism is a bit unfair.


Summer dresses

I got this dress when I was a freshman in college while in Mexico. My older sister actually has the exact same dress in a slightly varying color (mine is more navy and her is fully black). It brings back many good memories of a vacation with my family, and also keeps a special connection between my family and me. It’s also the perfect summer dress, which is why I had to pull it out on Saturday to go to church and out to eat.

P.S. If you live in Minneapolis, come check out the NE Summer Block Party 2016 next weekend at my church – Our Lady of Lourdes. It’s a FREE event! Joe and I will be volunteering in yellow t-shirts (I think we are on set up duty) so should be able to hang out with you if you stop by. There is beer, food, and free music and the perfect view of the Aquatennial fireworks – you don’t want to miss this! Our church is also offering free tours as it is a historical site in Minneapolis – the oldest church in Minneapolis in fact. Hope to see you there Twin Cities friends!
