What I Actually Bought From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

nordstrom anniversary sale

 

Have you had enough of the #NSale yet?! Me either. I keep checking back regularly to see what has been restocked. Let me tell you, my persistence has paid off! I landed some really great items from the sale. I’m sharing exactly what I bought in today’s post.

BTW, I wanted to let you know that I earn a small commission from each sale that is generated through Simple & Inspired. I use affiliate links, so if you purchase something through those links, I can make some money!

I listed my favorite picks from the sale in this post, but what I thought was adorable and what I actually needed in my closet varied tremendously. I went a little shoe crazy this time around, but one can never have too many shoes!

My splurge item! I stalked these for days before they were restocked in my size and color. I’m so excited for these! I love the block heel, the height, everything!

Finn and I are heading back to Charlottesville today with my sister and niece in tow. David headed back last night because he had to work today… boo! We had the absolute best time in Pennsylvania this weekend and I’m looking forward to showing my sister around Cville. Plus, we are heading to Nordstrom on Friday to shop the Anniversary Sale in person, and I can’t wait to grab a few things. (ICYMI, here are my top picks and home decor picks).

The reason of the trip was my cousin’s wedding, which was absolutely stunning! They got married overlooking Liberty Mountain Resort, and the view was tough to beat. It’s always so fun to see family, drink too much wine, and dance the night away.

As a mom of a newly walking toddler, nothing really beats a maxi dress. When I started looking for the right outfit for the wedding, I knew I needed to grab something that would be appropriate for chasing a little man around. I found this maxi dress on Forever 21’s website on a whim. (I think the last time I bought something from them was in college!) But I couldn’t really beat the price and it is downright adorable!

I pulled out my floppy straw hat a few weeks back for a night at the winery, and I forgot why I ever put it away. It’s so adorable to pair with a casual maxi dress or to wear to the pool.

Hope your week is going well! It’s almost halfway over!

xoxo

Have I ever talked about how much I adore the city I live in? Charlottesville is a small city that is surrounded by picturesque mountains and is the home of the University of Virginia. The architecture of the school is drop dead gorgeous. Thomas Jefferson founded the school and the brick buildings are said to be very “Jeffersonian”. I drive by the Rotunda on a daily basis, and I never miss the chance to glance at it’s beauty. If you’ve never been to Charlottesville, I highly recommend visiting! There is the perfect blend of college town mixed with old southern culture. New wineries and breweries pop up almost weekly and the outdoor scene is tough to beat!

In any case, David and I took a walk around UVA Grounds this weekend and snapped a few pictures of one of my favorite dresses this summer. David and Finn actually bought me this ruffle dress for Mother’s Day, and I’ve had it on rotation since! (It’s currently on major sale so make sure to take advantage! There’s plenty of summer left!) These strappy sandals are knock-offs of a more popular brand but a quarter of the price! Target truly does knock offs the best 🙂

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I have had a tough time getting the motivation to curate content for my little corner of the internet recently and I always miss it when I do! I sat down with David this weekend and we came up with a plan on how to create great content for this site and have time for everything else! I’m so lucky he’s around… he keeps me in check 😉

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
