Shopping with me: Nordstrom Anniversary Presale5:00 AM
I've been out of town for most of July - if you follow along on Instagram you may know that I'm spending most of my time out in Silicon Valley as part of the 500 startups accelerator program. I promise to write more about that whole experience later but first things first, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I'm sure most of you know about it, if you haven't already shopped it. Funny enough, I usually am an online shopper so you would've thought I bought everything online but because of work and being in 500 Startups, it's just been too crazy for me to even browse online so I actually went in store this weekend. It's been a little hard on me as I spend M-F without seeing my husband and daughter so try to maximize the weekends with them when I'm back home. They both came along on my little shopping trip and they were super patient and sweet to me as I tried everything on.
So a quick recap of what I brought home with me. If you aren't a Nordstrom cardholder you'll have to wait until July 22nd to grab these so I'd suggest bookmarking anything you have your eye on! But if you are a cardholder - go get them now!

This sweater is so simple and cute. Love the lace detail on the sleeves and it's really comfy and warm too.
I LOVE faux leather leggings for the fall. I wore mine so much last year that the knees are totally worn in. So I was planning on buying another pair this year and happy to find these in the sale! I will say that they fit a bit loose for leather leggings but I didn't want them to be too tight so I went with my regular size of XS however if you want them to be more fitted, I would suggest to size down.
If there is one thing that I have a lot of in my closet besides jeans it's bow blouses. I just can't resist them. I loved the color of this one and the bow sits really nicely on. Some of my bow blouses, the bow looks weird no matter how I tie it so I like the look of the ribbon bow, it's simpler and doesn't matter if it's perfectly tied or not. I came home and ended up ordering it in the ivory too! The fit is a bit looser than I normally like so I may not end up tucking it in, but plan on wearing it a bit more casual like with the leather leggings so I think it works not tucked in.
Polka dot cardigan - I mean, how can I not? I liked the length of this one, I really don't like the cardigans that hit just at the waist as those make me look even more short waisted. I love the gray with the black dots, I tend to wear cardigans a ton in the fall and I think this will go with everything!
I felt like I got a good amount of stuff but for some reason didn't see any cute jeans while I was there and ended up looking online and ordering these. I didn't have a chance to stop by the shoes but got these ankle booties online as well and looking forward to seeing how they look in person.
And if you have a little girl too, I have to mention they have some great sales for kid's shoes right now! Stocked up on these cute UGG boots for my daughter. They are a lot cuter in person, they are scalloped with little eyelets at the top. as well as these fun floral pair. I love dressing my little as much as dressing myself and can't wait to pair them with a little dress like they styled this little girl, so cute!
