BUY THIS (Because Ugh): Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

 So, listen. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale isn't my favorite. I do like that you can get discounts on new fall stuff but a few years back I started to get suspicious about the quality of some of the items, which I am pretty sure are made just for the sale. For example, this is my favorite Natori bra and this is it's Anniversary doppelg√§nger which you know is not the same quality. So lame and I expect better from Nordstrom, you know?
HOWEVER. Not everything is a bait and switch and I'm sure the lesser Natori is still a pretty nice bra at a good price. So, I dug around and found some things that I think are good deals and (hopefully) good quality as well as a few of my favorites.

The best first because it's freaking selling as we speak, my All Saints Dalby jacket is on sale. This is, by far, the nicest jacket I've ever owned (worn here.) It also comes in white which I think is very cool. The Balfern is also included in the sale in a very good dark berry color, but it's nearly sold out. Ugh, this sale is stressing me out.

If you don't want to spend all that on a leather moto jacket I really love this one from Kut from the Kloth. It comes in three colors and it's under $80! It's also very similar to the Dalby, style-wise.

Alright, I am not yet really thinking about jeans for fall but there are a few Madewell styles included in the stupid sale and the Cali Demi Boot is one I've been contemplating for a while. They're really cute and quite fashion-y and I think they could look great with my white sneakers.

Okay, listen. I know this dumb Barefoot Dreams cardigan is A Thing and gets included in every fashion blogger round up of must-buys but that doesn't mean I don't want it. It's basically the perfect work from home gin cardigan. Why haven't I bought it already? It even has pockets! I might have to do it.

Speaking of working from home, I'm going to skip right over the (quite good) Zella leggings and move right to the leggings I really want. These are a lounge jogger/legging hybrid and I am HERE FOR IT.

Finally, it wouldn't be me if I didn't want a new bag even though I don't need a new bag because I don't go anywhere and WHATEVER I still love this All Saints snakeskin crossbody an unholy amount. God, that bag is just the coolest thing. I HATE THIS SALE.

  1. I agree with your suspicion about the quality of sale items, as I've had the same. Also, I refuse to buy a cardigan without pockets, and shame on anyone who keeps making them that way.

  2. I ordered that Barefoot Dreams cardi. I'll let you know... and FWIW I don't like cardigans with pockets because I have enough junk in the trunk as it is. No More Bulk thankyouverymuch.

  3. The barefoot dreams carigan is worth every damn dollar. I have one for my work office and one for my home office and they are like wearing a warm cloud. You won't regret it from November-March. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing your sale suspicions. That hadn't occurred to me, but I do not doubt it. That All Saints bag is gorgeous for true - but - it is really heavy. There is about a pound of metal hardware on it. That rules it out for me. A bag should not be heavy BEFORE you put your phone and water bottle in.

    1. I gotta tell you, I don't mind a heavy bag if it sparks joy.
