Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Y’all! The moment is here… the shopping olympics, aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, is finally here!!! It’s time to get your game face on, and score some deals!

Going into this sale can be somewhat overwhelming, but no need to stress… I’ve done the pre-game work for you! I have scoured the online previews, and have narrowed down my top picks from what I’m seeing online!

Tops:

I’ve noticed Tie Dye is not going away for fall, and to be honest, my little 70’s-loving soul is HERE for it!! I am also loooving that Free people sweater. I scored one similar, from last year’s sale, and I wear it all the time! I linked a long-lined top from Free people in two colors, black and green. It looks like a great staple piece, with many ways to mix it up! The knotted back, waffle knit top looks so cute to me. I love the knot detail, and can’t wait to check that out in person. Last, I obviously had to throw in a couple of graphic tees, or it wouldn’t feel right-lol!!

 

Jeans/ bottoms:

Frame flares are back for another Nordy sale! They are one of my favorite pairs of jeans I’ve ever snagged.. sooo flattering on, and extremely comfortable! I get compliments on them anywhere I go! I have been lusting after those distressed free people skinnies since last year, but they sold out super quick, so I’m hoping to snag a pair this year!! The Mother frayed hem jeans caught my eye. I love the cropped flare, just an overall cool look. The white cropped denim is so fun for the end of summer, and such a great price, only $35! Now for the Spanx! This is the best time to get a pair because you get them at such a great price! Trust me, they’re worth it! As for skirts, I linked that Faux patent mini skirtbecause the color is too cool, and who doesn’t love a fun little mini?? I also HAD to include the suede BLANK NYC mini skirt! Afterall, it was my most shopped item from the sale last year!

 

Jackets and coats

First thing that caught my eye was that starry stunner! Its just too good not to highlight! Next, that deep green coat with a classic silhouette becomes a little edgy with the subtle black stars. Such a cool look! If you’re going for a leather jacket this year, the two ALLSAINTS jackets above are winners. A little higher priced, but still great deal on high-quality jackets, and they will be staple pieces you’ll wear on repeat. I linked a plaid blazer because I firmly believe every girl needs on for fall 😉. Then I also linked a long “dad coat” because I love the look, and this price 👌🏼.

Shoes and Handbags

The nude, croc embossed, heels are giving me suuuch 90’s vibes and I’m swooning! Same with the black strappy sandals with gold buckles. Both pair of heels are so chic, and completely stood out to me amongst the other heels in the sale. As for these two bags, I have heart-eyes over the stunning orange. The army green leopard print bag is perfect to carry everyday, and stands out among the average handbag, with an edgy feel and fun pop of color! The citrus color Frame bag has such a unique silhouette, and would make the perfect statement bag to any fall wardrobe. You could easily carry it in spring as well, which is a win in my book!

EXTRAS:

I wanted to highlight a few other things! First, this is a great time to load up on Commando and Hanky Panky undies, while they’re on major sale! Also, wanted to share this cute PJ set because lets face it, we are most likely looking at time at home this fall and why not be cute and cozy! Last, Le Labo fragrances are my ABSOLUTE fav, and they are offering two of their most popular scents for pretty much, the same price as one travel-sized perfume. They are a unisex scent, and I can assure you that you will love them.

I will be shopping the sale in-person come Friday morning, and I will give my opinions on the items when I see them in person, and let you know my absolute top picks from the sale! Happy shopping everyone! I can’t wait to see your picks!!

Y’all… have you stepped into Target lately? Actually, what kind of question in that.. most likely if we are friends.. you have been to Target, and if not.. go, now! Seriously though, the casual clothing situation in there is unreal! I wanted to snag absolutely everything, but I exerted some slight self-control and only grabbed a few items!

DIY Ice Queen Costume

ice

I looooove any excuse to dress in theme, so Halloween makes me extra excited! This year I couldn’t decide between an ice queen, and a skeleton, so I left it up to the “gram” for a vote… Voters chose Ice queen! So I put my online ordering skills to the test, and this is what I came up with!!

My bodysuit is from Dolls kill! Such a fun find, but wear pasties under because its slightly sheer. I got my rhinestone face decalbelt, and tights from amazon! Shoes are Jeffrey Campbell….linked here.

I made this crown out of hot glue sticks! There are several youtube tutorials online, but this is the one I used: ICE CROWN TUTORIAL .

The cape was handmade as well. I snagged 2 yards of this sparkly sheer fabric at Michaels, 1/2 yard of silver studded ribbon material, and 1/2 a yard of silver fringe. I bought 2 white shoulder pads for structure. I placed the fabric over my shoulders the way I wanted it and glued it to the bottom side of the shoulder pads. A savvier crafter could definitely sew it.. but I was on a time crunch and I’m lazy- lol!! Then I used a hot glue gun to glue the silver studs to the top of the shoulder pads, then lined the edges with the silver fringe to give it a finished look.

To attach the cape, I had a friend tac it onto my bodysuit!

I finished off the look with silvery makeup, lashes, and white-out contacts! All purchased from a local wig store!

Happy Halloween!
