Hello and happy Monday! Although it’s been a little while since I shopped anywhere in person, I am always stalking stores on the internet. You can decide if my post is accurately titled, I’ve purchased 4 items recently from Nordstrom. Does that make it a haul? Who knows? But everything is on sale so rather than wait to feature each item in separate outfit post I put them together. Now you can have a chance to snag them too – before they’re gone! And just like that my good deed for Monday is done, lol!
First up, this dress, it’s on sale for $41.40, down from $69. It is off the shoulder, comes in black, navy, denim, and faded denim. I bought it in black in a size small. The reviews said to order a size down, I probably could have worn an XS because it has plenty of room but I didn’t want it to be too short. Plus now I have room for appetizers, dessert, and cocktails. So there! The real reason I bought it is because I am planning to wear it to my son’s graduation in May. I know, I know, thinking way ahead. But I really liked seeing it this year on so many other bloggers and when it went on sale I knew it was meant to be! The fabric of this dress is such good quality. It is thick and sturdy. As I look at these pictures I realize how short it is! This may be a dress I wear with flats, not entirely sure yet. You can get my necklace here and my very favorite pom pom clutch here.
The second item I purchased is this faux wrap blouse . This baby is half off! It had been $68 and is now $34! It comes in 5 colors/patterns. I chose red because my wardrobe is lacking red but I really like some of the prints it comes in as well. This is a fabulous top! It has a little snap sewn in so you’ll never feel exposed and the faux wrap hides any problem areas. It is also a little longer in the back, overall just a fantastic top to wear with everything! It would be perfect at work and also for play. Snag this top! For reference I bought a medium. Sorry these pictures are a little hazy. It’s been raining all weekend and it is so humid! The lens on my camera fogged up immediately and we had to wait for it to adjust. I even had to take my glasses off because they were so fogged up – crazy humidity and unskilled photographers are not a good combination!
Next up this this ruffled, cold shoulder top in pink. I saw this top on other bloggers and loved it but not at full price. So I had it in my shopping cart and when it went on sale for $35 it became mine. I do that often when I want something but I want to wait for it to go on sale, it’s like having the saleslady hold something for weeks, lol. For reference I bought a small but a medium would have worked too. This top is a nice, thick material so it will work practically year round here in Florida. If pink isn’t your color this one is the same price and comes in black, as well as black and white stripes. This is another one I say SNAG! When I put the top on to take pictures I noticed a very small, snag that will develop into a hole. I called Nordstrom and they are sending me another, so back this one goes! I am excited to wear it, the best part is that Nordstrom is sending me the new top now, before they actually receive my return – I’m telling you they have the best customer service!
Finally, I bought this pair of Toms peep toe booties on sale for $72 originally $108. I also had a $20 Nordstrom Note to apply to my purchase so the deal I scored was almost half price! Toms are known for their comfort and I am hoping they will work for me. I bought the natural color, if you are thinking of getting these do so quickly; sizes are selling out. Mine have not arrived yet but when they do I’ll report back about the comfort factor. After reading the reviews I was sold. Plus on Friday my blogging bestie Andrea shared her favorite peep toe booties which just happen to be a pair of Toms as well. She looks adorable in hers!
So that’s what I’ve been buying lately. While I am still firmly planted in hot, humid weather it’s hard for me to get excited and actually buy clothing for cooler temps. I buy pieces I can wear now and later and I am always on the hunt for a sale, I simply hate to pay full price so I’m always working an angle, hahaha! Check the links at the bottom for a few more tops currently on sale that I love! The best thing about shopping at Nordstrom is the free shipping and returns. Did you know that you can return Nordstrom purchases in person at Nordstrom Rack? Well, you can. I’m sharing this for my local friends who are in the same boat as me. The closest Nordstrom is a few hours away but we have Nordstrom Rack in Winter Park and by the Millenia Mall. This comes in handy if you shop online but don’t want to wait for a return to be processed. Just thought you’d like to know!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday! Can you believe this is the last week of August? Holy cow, September, here we come!
