My Faves from the Nordstrom Sale + 30 Before 30 Update

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Blogger Picks

This post is going up a little later than usual because of some technical difficulties encountered over the weekend. BUT better late than never, right?

In case you’ve been missing legit every single blogger on Instagram posting nonstop about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a) HOW HAVE YOU MISSED IT and b) you’re in luck. This is Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year, and a ton of fall items that are brand new are on sale. Including my whole look in this post!

I thought I’d share this blogger’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale blogger picks. My hope is that how I styled this look for now and for later inspires y’all (and your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases!). If you want more information on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, there’s a link in my nav bar (or click here) to my page containing ALL of the FAQs… and dropdowns so you can shop all of my picks both per category and per price point!

What I’m Wearing:

Top: BP. (currently $31.90, will be $49) / Skirt: J.Crew (currently $95, will be $128)
Sweater: Madewell (currently $64.90, will be $98) / Bag: Brahmin (currently $249, will be $375)
Shoes: Louise et Cie (currently $79.90, will be $119.95)
Earrings: similar / Crown Ring: BaubleBar / Signet Ring: BaubleBar

By the way, this bag is my favorite purchase. By far. It’s a bit of a splurge, but omfg it’s so stinking chic and perfect for fall! Also this sweater is cozy AF. And it’s a total steal. Basically I’m just a fan of everything I’m wearing in this post.


But really: I spent all weekend lounging around my house in this cardigan. It’s so comfy cozy and I absolutely cannot wait for the temperatures to dip low enough for me to actually wear it outside of the apartment on the reg.

Hah like I leave my house ever. Such a joke.

Before I forget: today marks 3 months since my birthday… which means we’re due for an update on my 30 Before 30 progress! As a reminder, if I inspire you to create a 30 Before 30 list, please share it with me and I’ll tag you on the 30 before 30 page!

4. Read 30 Books

Progress: Completed, May 2017

I’m done! The book that completed this list was American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It was a recommendation by two of my friends and I finished it just before the eponymous show premiered on Starz.

Since finishing this 30 before 30 task, I’ve read Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah, The Girl With No Name by Diney Costeloe, and Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.

15. Travel to Asia

This May’s trip to Seoul, South Korea and Shanghai, China was nothing short of amazing.

I loved going to the palace in Seoul. The skyline in Shanghai was stunning. And it was amazing meeting so many people from various walks of life so unlike my own.

On my next trip to Asia, I would love to visit Thailand and Cambodia. Or Hong Kong. Or Beijing. Maybe Singapore? There’s a long list.

So what’s next on my 30 before 30 list? I’m planning on taking a pastry-making class sometime this fall. Hopefully getting the chance to unplug completely for 24 hours… and possibly staying up all night to watch the sunrise.

And now for one more chance to enter my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale giveaway!
