#NSALE 5 Essential Items to Buy

nordstrom anniversary sale




5 ESSENTIALS FOR FALL
Below are 5 essentials for fall, that are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  The #nsale sale ends in 3 days - so there are only a few more days to get the sale price!

#1
I picked up this watch - and it has quickly become my new favorite watch.  I love how it is so simple - yet stylish!  I highly recommend it. I am also considering it in black and gold.

#2
A great tote for under $40.  This tote is a steal, and would be perfect for fall.

#3
I picked up this new jacket.  The leather is buttery soft - and the zippers add a little edge, and the drape of the lapels adds a little softness.  It comes in black, cognac and grey - it is definitely a great buy - something you will have for years.
There is a also a very similar jacket for a fraction of the cost (only $67!). 

#4
I have a feeling this cardigan is going to get a lot of use this fall.  I already broke down and wore it to work the other day.  It is heavy, yet light-weight, if that make sense - plus it is cozy soft, and it is only $31.  (This cardigan is almost identical but is hooded.)

#5
I was a little on the fence about this sweater - but I kept it and I am glad I did.  It is a little more cropped than most sweaters but you can easily layer a tank or shirt underneath - for a stylish look.


I was a little bummed that this suede jacket sold out so quickly and never restocked, but you might get lucky to get one on sale.

I also shared my TOP 10 PICKS under $100 from the sale here.

And, a few of my hits and misses here.

SHOP THE LOOKS
1. V-Neck Tee: H&M // 2. Necklace: H&M (Only $8) // 3. Top: H&M (Only $15)
4. Denim Jacket: H&M // 5. Skirt: H&M // 6. Jeans: H&M ($10)

9. Lace Up Flats: Halogen ($30 off) // 10. Lipstick Set: Bobbi Brown ($30 off) // 11. Sandal: Steve Madden (Under $100)

Today I am sharing some outfits you could easily put together with some basic staples - like white jeans, white tee, and denim jacket - that would be perfect for a weekend getaway.  I am one of those people that always struggles with how much and what to pack when I go on vacation.  I have found that if I stick to a specific color theme - like white in this case - it makes things a lot easier. 

For a few more ideas of what wear with white - you can check out this post I did which shows how to mix camo, grey and white.

Also, I put together this 12 outfit packing guide.

#NSALE

KITCHEN UPDATE
You may remember that my husband and I are remodeling our kitchen.  Well, yesterday, our marble countertops were installed.  I love them - and my husband does, too!  We selected the stone and had it sent to the fabricators two months ago - so it is so exciting to see them in place now.  (And, we have been living with plywood countertops for the past month.) And, last night, I helped my husband install the faucet - so we have running water.  No dishwasher or garbage disposal for a few more weeks, but at least there is water.  Now, I just need to make a decision on flooring and get chairs picked out.  Currently, we have a new table with our old folding chairs.  We sold our existing table and chairs a few weeks ago. Maybe by Christmas (six months later) my kitchen will be put back together.
