Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Ok ladies, it is time; we might as well add a national holiday, it is the Cardholder’s Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. So if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, get one. You can link it and make it a debit card if you don’t want another credit card.


Jen’s Picks

Shoes, Nordstrom is known for their shoe department.

These were the first ones in my cart. I ordered the Khaki Suede but all the colors look really fun.

Nordstrom also has a lot of great jewelry on sale. I am a big fan of Kendra Scott and tend to wear her pieces in a regular rotation. I snagged me this little beauty as well in the Black Mother of Pearl. It seems like it will be a great neutral that I can wear with lots of different outfits. These make great gifts (I already grabbed another for a gift)

I also really like my Kate Spade glitter studs that I got at the anniversary sale last year (I got the multi color and it goes with everything!), and lucky to you the mini version is on sale this year. I actually think I might like the mini better, so maybe I should add those to my cart too!

Jean shopping could be the hardest thing on the planet (except for the dreaded swimsuit shopping!!). I have found a brand that I really like and is actually reasonably priced, especially from Nordstrom. Wit and Wisdom is my jam. I thought I would try these grey jeans, so I of course added them to the cart. I will note that they are a mid rise which when I ordered my first pair of Wit and Wisdom I was nervous about but it does a lovely job of sucking it all in (and who doesn’t need that?).

The next item I can’t take credit for finding, but rather my girl Sheaffer introduced me to this gem. She affectionately calls it the “blardigan” and let me tell you the name suits it perfectly. Part blanket, part cardigan. It is so soft even my kids want to wear it….. I wear it YEAR ROUND, yes, even in the summer because sometimes the air conditioning is cold! I have the regular blardigan but I am going to give some not so subtle hints that I want the baby version as a Christmas present 😉


I have the grey and can confirm that it does stretch a bit after wearing but it doesn’t stretch out (if that makes sense!). Coziest thing ever!!

Wen’s Picks

After taking one of all of Jen’s items here are my favorite finds from the anniversary sale.

I’m loving this Chelsea28 cardigan. The fit looks perfect for throwing on over a tee and jeans. (P.S. anyone wanting to buy this for Jen, feel free!!)

Since I tend to wear blazers and cardigans often, I’m always on the hunt for a great top that pairs well. I like the v-neck and length of this Trouve tank.

So jeans. So hard. So needed. I’m loving the grey jeans Jen picked out to mix things up a bit, and for a regular pair, I’m going to give these Mavi’s a try. I love that they are in lengths since I’m short and need everything altered.

For something fun, yet still practical, I’ve been looking to get a phone wristlet instead of carrying a handbag when heading out for running errands or a night out on the town. Because lets be real sometimes you just don’t want sippy cups and goldfish in your bag….

And just for fun, here is what happens when we shop the anniversary sale, we end up showing up wearing the same outfit! (Our exact color isn’t available but find our Lush tunic  and Jen’s necklace)


Happy Shopping,

Jen & Wen
