CAVING TO THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE


Nope, I WASN'T going to do it, ya know, the over promotion of Christmas in July that every blogger and their brother, well, probably sister, tends to do. The coveted #NSale. The endless "what I bought at the Nordy sale," the "what YOU should buy" posts! But then 2 things happened. A blogger friend, who shall remain nameless, but whose page views and readers are similar to mine, told me the promotion of the yearly make your holler #NSale 5 times strong extravaganza, actually made enough money to buy her families Christmas presents that year! You know, kinda like I have a garage sale to help with college expenses. Since I am no longer working in the “professional” sector, it’s a hellz ya, mama needs a little Christmas cash. But this was the most difficult post I have ever had to write as I could not find any of these products in my Reward Style. Did I miss the memo? Fixed now (thank you Kate, you "Link Ninja" you)! However, sweet Friends, that is not the main reason. The main reason is, to be honest, I listen to and respect what many fashion bloggers have to say. I know they spent countless hours feeding us what they think we would like. If you are a regular reader, it means that you think my style is halfway decent so why wouldn’t I want to help? I didn't go totally hog wild or anything, just grabbed a few dozen fun things, basics and some cute gifts. 



I’m no level bazillion nor am I a fashion blogger only. I’m a Nordy level 3, middle aged gal who loves her some cute and well fitting clothes along with all kinds of make life happy interests. I’m not gonna shove oodles of items your way, just a few favorites. But my Fed-Ex man is going to be here every day for the next two weeks. Maybe I should make him cookies!

I'll send a majority back I am sure. Now, I’m going to Wal-Mart and getting a Chick-fi-A market salad for lunch. Oh and most importantly shopping AMAZON PRIME DAY and it is Christmas in July baby..stocking up on Presents that is!

Happy shopping but more Happy LIVING!

  1. haha! I love how you add the "I caved" to the catalog! I really didn't think I was going to buy much this Anniversary Sale, but next thing you know, I have three packages that are each 7 pounds arriving today. What happened?! I have that leopard blanket and it's my very favorite! SO soft and cozy! Happy Monday, Andrea!

  2. They have a lot of cute pieces that work for now and in the Fall!! I think you went about the sale in the right way and got the pieces you liked not because other people liked them, but because they worked for you! xo, Biana- BlovedBoston

  3. Those booties are all super cute and I can totally see you in the cardigan and jeans. You'll have to let us know if you get any great on Prime day as well!

  4. I love the accessories, especially that Treasure and Bond necklace! I placed two orders the day the sale opened and I'm not placing anymore! As hard as it is I am sticking to my guns, lol! Can't wait to see all your goodies!

  6. Good Morning post twin! I felt the same way about how overdone it is that everyone posts about this sale, but also had a friend let me know that they made so much by promoting it last year. So, alas here I am! I also had an issue with finding everything on RewardStyle, and then a lightbulb went off to use Link Ninja. Go under the Apps tab, and install Link Ninja <3

  7. Can you believe I have never purchased anything from Norstrom? I may have to get busy! Its hard for me sometimes to find the right fit. I need to start looking for Fall booties soon anyway!

  8. I still haven't shopped this sale...even when my mom was working there in the alterations department. But it's smart especially when they are things you can use!!

  9. I love that striped tee!! I'm hoping to grab one of those, too! I don't have a card so I have to wait a little longer so I'm sure my size will be out of stock in everything I want! Ha!

  10. I have a love/hate relationship with this sale. Let me just enjoy my summer, Nordies!!! :) That being said, I only bought 2 things this year and they come tomorrow...so YIPPEE!! That shawl sweater is so cute! Somehow I missed it while shopping, which stinks because I want it! Happy Monday beautiful!!

  12. SO many amazing picks! I also purchased that cardigan in the blush color and I think it is my favorite purchase too!! This sale gets me every year no matter how much I try to avoid it!

  13. Oh it's so fun to see everyone's picks from this sale! You made some great selections. All of your ankle boots are so great and will go with everything! Glad you were able to get the links figured out too! I know a lot of bloggers were having issues with that + getting clicks/purchases to register on the back end! Now I wish I were shopping the sale so it could pay for Christmas gifts! Who knew shopping could be so rewarding!

  15. I love your honesty here! As much as it can be a fun sale, I do get overwhelmed and kind of tired of seeing 100 posts about it (not yours of course :). I love that striped shirt you found, that sweater is so cute too and I love the color. Yes to all the booties! I'm hoping my feet will still fit in them in the fall lol. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  16. No NOrdy's sale for me only because Canada. Sigh. But I'm definitely checking out that Echo look!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOVE your honest thoughts on the sale! I personally love it because I'm a shopaholic (eek!) but I also get burnt out on it big time. Do we all NEED things from it? Definitely not!! And you will love that blanket! I got another one this year because we fight over it in my house! Hope your week is off to a fabulous start! XO

  18. LOLOLOL You and the delivery guy are going to be BFF before the end of the sale :) I love GORJANA. Two of my favorite necklaces are that brand. Those Sam Edelman booties are so cute! I am all about the high waist briefs for under dresses. Keeps everything sucked in and covered up if there happens to be an awful wind blowing around. Yup. been there.

  19. I know what you mean about flooding your feed with that yellow sign.I enjoy looking through what people buy but I haven't pulled the trigger on anything. You have some great pics!! I do love your style!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes girl! I 100% agree with you! Since I am still looking for a new job I really don't want to buy things that I don't need. I do want to see what they have for men though since Chris's birthday is coming up. I am also going to see what Prime day deals are available but only books and maybe gifts for my nieces. Every time you mention Alexa I think of my in-laws haha. Oh and I love all of your picks and you always look beautiful and stylish!! :-)

  21. Nordstrom canceled my order and my fall must have booties are sold out. I had to start over and rethink, which I guess was better in the end! I did not know about that echo look, so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I hear ya' on the being sick part, but I can't help but read them all...LOL I loved seeing what you bought. I picked up a giant haul this weekend and have a couple more things I just ordered for in store pick up this morning. I plan to go through it all today and play dress up. The cocoon sweater is one of the things I got last year and I have worn it so much. You will love it! I got 2 of the BP version this year. I like that the pockets are outside vs right at my hips #idontneedattentionthere Happy Monday friend!!! XOXO

  23. I am so glad you did this, because I think it is really fun to see what other people bought! I LOVE that blanket - I totally forgot about it being part of the sale. Maybe next year, as it seems not to be available in that color now. Here's to hoping a pair of those booties work for us!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love seeing what everybody picked up from the sale! I actually never participate - whoops - but it gives me some fashion ideas from all the fashionable bloggers I follow (like you!) Happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love your honesty, haha! What you said in the beginning is exactly how I felt about seeing everyone's Nordstrom sale blog posts. BUT, I get why you would share if that's the case!!!!

  26. Being pretty new to blogging I'm still trying to get my head around this Nordy Sale frenzy but I can tell you something for free - I haven't even made it to Nordy Sale Entry Level as only US residents are eligible for the privileged preview club and I just KNOW that the cardi I've fallen for will be sold out by the time the sale goes public. And that makes me sad 😖.
    Hugs my sweet, enjoy Christmas in July! x.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I swear every year I can't pass up the chance to get some cute booties! They're always so perfect for Fall, and you scored two really cute pairs!

    ReplyDelete
  28. MMM. Ok, you are tempting me too! I havent done much with it and know about prime day from my hubby! I love your picks and should scope out some of the shoes/booties they have. I also could use some light sweaters! Love your buys. i havent posted yet, but may Friday when the sale for everyone begins.
    have a great week!

  29. Girl I love that you're honest, because that's real talk about why all of us bloggers share about this sale! Plus, it's a fun one, I like the hype, the deals and heck I even like the competition of getting things before they all sell out, ha! I love seeing others picks too, although there are tons of sale pick posts out there I stop and read all the ones I come across! I feel like I need those Zella crops, I see all the rave reviews about the regular length ones but I know they'll bunch at my ankles, the crops may even be to my ankles! Thanks for sharing your picks!

  30. I really love the Zella crops that I have, I need to check out those ones that you've shared in this post. I really need to get on the Nordstrom sale bandwagon one of these years. I always feel like it falls at such a bad time always for me! Like I just got back from vacation. LOL. But, that is crazy that your blogging friend bought all her Christmas gifts for her family with her sales. I know there is a lot of money to be had in it!

  31. Bloggers love their Nordstrom, that's for sure.
    I have yet to buy anything from there so I guess I'm not "official' :) haha
    Good finds though.

  32. The I caved is so funny. Everyone does do the sale. I don't really shop at Nordys so I tend to stay away. I think it's a great sale if you love shopping there and their items!

  33. That pocket tee is so soft and comfy, I got a few. I always stock up on basics during this sale and of course got some things for Bella. Love your picks- those Zella leggings look so nice!

  34. You scored some cute booties and sweaters/cardigans! I LOVE that soft throw blanket and I admittedly sleep with one as my "adult teddy bear" LOL. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  35. I have never seen so many N Sale posts in my life. I'm a huge N fan and did all of my shopping the first two days of the sale and I haven't looked again but I probably will before it's over. I found a few things and got the Gran girls some cute outfits too. I got the Echo Show and can't wait to get it all set up. Happy week Andrea!

  36. So many cute pieces! Loving the booties - so cute!

    I am glad you got some things you like! I have a hard time getting excited about the sale. You see, I live in very hot FLORIDA where sometimes it is even torture to wear a long-sleeved blouse. This past winter, however, we had a cold spell and the temperature got down to 30 degrees, so I went out and bought 6 sweaters! LOL. So I really do not need coats, boots, or more sweaters.

  41. I grabbed those Sam Edelman boots for Jordan!

  42. Love your picks! I bought many of these things myself. :) Such a good sale it is hard not to cave!!

  43. I don't love shopping for fall right now but these prices are just too good to pass up! I also want to be better prepared for Christmas this year too so I'm packing some of these away!
    Love your picks!

  44. It's hard not to cave and that's one of the reasons why I am not a card holder. I figured most things would sell out and it also gives me a chance to think about my purchases. Thsee are great picks and Sam Edelman should have spelled Maurine into Maureen instead! I probably would have caved for those booties! Lol 😂

  45. I got a lot of the same items. Mine are just showing up, and I am hoping a lot of them fit. I have heard a lot of people sending some of my favorites back.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh Andrea, I have so many of those items still in my shopping bag. I love those booties and the green sweater! Great picks!
