2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale EARLY ACCESS: MUST HAVES

TODAY’S THE DAY!!!  Hook me up to a coffee IV and remind me to drink some Redbull because mama’s been up since 2am when the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went LIVE!  It’s Day 1 for CARDHOLDERS and luckily, I’m a cardholder! I was like Cher from Clueless and shopped like a boss yesterday and have some great pieces to share with you.

I honed in on my VERY FAVORITE items at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale instead of showing Every. Single. Piece. Instead, I picked items I wore the fire out of last year or items I needed to fill in wardrobe gaps.  Make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram/watching IG Stories because I will be posting often.

Strategy Talk:  Before you get started take heed…Nordstrom has FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS.  I wouldn’t spend my time browsing around all willy nilly and then waiting until Saturday to check out.  Your items will be SOLD OUT!  I didn’t listen to my own advice and missed out on the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan last year.  I will highlight the items I think are going to sell extremely fast.

If you have a few things you know you want, order those RIGHT AWAY.  After you make that initial order of your must haves, go back and browse a bit.  You can place all the orders in the world and shipping will be free.  Bonus: the boxes keep my kids busy for hours! #winwin #freeentertainment

 

OK LADIES! TIME TO BOOM SHOCKALOCKA!

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale EARLY ACCESS: MUST HAVES featured by popular Houston style blogger Haute & Humid

Numero Uno is the Barefoot Dreams cardigan.  This critter is softer than a kittens ear cozier than a crockpot meal on a cold winter day and I am pretty sure the fibers have something in them that make your body crave it.

I AM OBSESSSSSSED! And I know you will be too.

Buy this pup up NOW before you size/color combo sells out.  If you need a gift for your mom, MIL or bestie, get them one too.  #twinningiswinning

For size reference I am wearing the XS/SM.

These are my top 3 MUST HAVE budget friendly pairs of jeans and my one splurge pair of jeans.  I love these jeans with all my heart and that’s saying a lot when you are pear shaped and finding jeans is harder than swimming across the Atlantic.  They are wildly popular every year and sizes will go fast.

BUDGET FRIENDLY:

MADEWELL JEANS– Left. These will sell out very quickly.  My store was already out of a few sizes.  These jeans are high waisted, button front with very slight distressing marks.  If I was still teaching I could wear these to work.  They run true to size and under $100.

BLANK NYC JEANS– Center. These are more on the trendy side with a raw hem ankle but they do not have any distressing.  I loved the dark wash and stretch.  True to size and almost under $50!

ARTICLES OF SOCIETY JEANS– Right.A great basic pair of jeans.  They have a darker wash, hemmed ankle and the perfect amount of stretch.  These jeans tend to stretch out after you start wearing them so I suggest sizing down.

SPLURGE DENIM:

AG JEANS– Let me count the ways I love these jeans.  I don’t think I have ever put on a pair of these jeans that I didn’t love.  They somehow hug in all the right places, have the softest fabric and only get better with age.  These jeans are basically an amazing bottle of wine!

I am adding both of these tops to the must have list.  The button up grey henley top will sell out FAST.  Mark my word!  It also comes in an oatmeal color which I also loved.  You really can’t go wrong with either color.  This top runs true to size.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

I bought the turtleneck version of the blush v-neck last year in two colors.  It was one of my top sellers.  This year they totally improved this top by making it a v-neck.  If I must leak a secret about myself, it’s that I have a secret deep love for v-neck tops.  I sized up in this top.

This blush cardigan is always one of my favorite pieces.  I bought it last year in cream and it hasn’t let me down yet.  These cardigans do run big so I would size down one OR two sizes.  This item will sell out fast.

This top was really pretty.  I liked the length and the sleeves.  You can dress it up for the office or take it more casual for a daytime look.  I am also in love with this reversible necklace.  One side has darker shades and the other lighter blush tones.

LOUNGE WRAP– This is a must have for everyone.  I wore it to every cold early morning soccer game and took it on every flight.  This is also a nursing friendly top.  I wear it with leggings and tennis shoes to the grocery store weekly in the fall and winter or over my pajamas.  Mine is so worn, I need to invest in a new one.

SHOES

I will go more in depth on shoes for Friday’s post.  My store didn’t have the biggest selection so I will have more of a run down after going to the large Nordy.  In the mean time these are the shoes I have that were so good they brought them back for round 2.

Last years version…

LOW HEEL BOOTIE

These boots were made for walking!  The low heel is perfect for running around town.  The leather was super soft.  These will need little to no breaking in.  The woven details on the top and the side notches took these boots to the next level.

  1. Good morning!
    I’m hoping I win one of the gazillion Nordstrom giveaways that I entered, but in the meantime, I just ordered the Free People top you featured above. It looks so cute! I have the AG jeans in my cart in case I win something – lol
    I always like your picks. Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks for all of your hard work to organize and make this less overwhelming! I love your style…I hope my favorites are still available when this thing opens on the 20th! I need that Aphrodite necklace and those henly tops, and that tunic sweater, and those jeans, and those boots…omg!

    • Than you Kim! I know the necklace hasn’t sold out and hopefully they restock some items soon! Thank you for following along. I will have a post up for public access too!
