Weekend Steals | Last Chance Must Haves (Still in Stock)

And all good things must come to an end, but not before one.last.look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before the prices go up on Monday! I feel like so much stuff sold out early this year that I've learned my lesson for next year, but there are still lots of goodies still in stock. 

If you're want to partake of the sale, but are wondering what's currently available that you should pick up now, my Top 5 Must Haves are: these jeans, these OTK boots, this crossbody bag, this necklace (in gold), and this chunky sweater (size down).  And one more actually makes six, but also these sunnies!! 

I went through the sale departments yesterday and found even more goodness still available (at least it was then, so hopefully it is now!) and made 3 collages for you.  You can check out my snapchat or insta story (@honeywerehome) to see how I make the collages.  

And if you're done shopping for yourself, you can get a head start on your Christmas shopping now! Hello, Santa!!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 

 As for how things fit on me, keep in mind, I'm a shorty, a little over 5 feet tall, about 110 pounds with an athletic build and I put all fit info in purple italics. 

black leather jacket (XS) 

My 'last but certainly not least' purchase from the sale is this awesome black leather jacket by Hinge.  I saw it on the rack and immediately liked it, especially when I felt the soft fabric, but it's still pricey at $219, but even more so after the sale ($329).  As soon as I tried it on though, I knew it would be a wear-forever kind of jacket that I'll get so much use out of when it gets cooler in Houston or if I want to travel with it.  It fits like a dream and even the inner lining is super soft.  See it live on Snap! 

Colors and sizes are going fast in this casual, thin slouchy top so act fast! 

BCBG wrap dress (XS)  | heels
These wrap-style dress were a closet staple when I worked in an office and they transition from day to night really well. 

topshop dress  (US4)  | heels
This fit and flare dress is super cute on with the cutout detail.  My nursing boobs made it too snug in the top or else it would've been a keeper! 

 Everly dress (XS) | necklace | booties
I've gotten very fond of dresses that aren't so body con lately.  This one shows a bit of sexy shoulder and a slight v-neckline, but is still loose and swingy on the bottom.  It's soft like sweater material too. 

perforated sweater (US2)Joe's Honey curvy skinny jeans (25)  | heels
This perforated white sweater is different in a good way.  It's kinda sporty chic. And I got my jeans altered so I don't have to roll the bottoms anymore.  They are perfect now! 

turtleneck tunic XS | similar leggings | similar black bootsnecklace
If you're like me, a sucker for super duper soft, lightweight fabric, you'll love this tunic top.  It's the thing you'll put on after work on Friday and not take off until Monday morning.  LOVE it!  It comes in different colors too. 

Below, I went ahead and recapped ALL of my Nordstrom sale favorites from when the sale first began.  I didn't want to make you have to go back to different pages to find the outfits I put together, so I combined them here, with just a single picture or two of each one.

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel $263 now, $395 later Gorjana necklace | ring (similar)

FIT - Faux Leather Jacket: This jacket runs small.  I would normally wear XS, but I'm in a Small here and I wouldn't be able to wear a heavy sweater underneath it because it would be too tight in the arms.  I like this style of jacket more fitted anyway, and would wear thinner tops with it like above or a tee-shirt or tunic type top.

Caslon collarless leather jacket $198.90 now, $299 later
L O V E D this one! Felt so good on and the zip/quilt detail near the shoulders adds just enough to make it special.

Vince Camuto drape front blazer (size 2) $112.90 now, $169 later | heels $99.95, $69.90
I fell in love with this unstructured black blazer that will easily dress up an outfit and make it look more polished. I only needed to hem the length in the sleeves. 

Caslon stretch skinny grey jeans (size 24) $48.90 now, $79 later 
These Grey jeans were featured in the catalog and I found them in my store, but only in size 24, so I squeezed into them!  The 25 (my regular size) would've fit better.  They did feel thin and like they might not last too long after lots of washes, you'd probably have to be careful with them

Halogen sleeveless v-neck blouse XS now $37.90, after sale $58 (5 colors) | heels $99.95, $69.90
This sleeveless blouse is a great work option and you could wear it now with white jeans and tan heels. That gold link necklace would be perfect on this v-neckline.

Caslon drape neck top Small $29.90 now, $49 later
Oh, this sweater was super soft and cozy! It's the kind of shirt you want to snuggle up with a hot latte.  Would be really cute with black jeans.  It comes in solid colors too if the stripes feel too much.

Trouve could shoulder sweater XS now $52.90, after sale $79 

Lush v-neck crepe blouse XS now $27.90, after sale $42

denim shirt SP $39.90 now, $69 later 
Kut from the Kloth Diana Skinny Pants 0P $45.90 now, $69.50 later - GET THESE PANTS!!! Thank me later! :)
The pants I knew I had to have as soon as I put them on! They are so genuinely soft and comfortable and don't pull or gap in any weird places! They look professional, but aren't at all stuffy and you feel like you can b r e a t h e in them!  They are kind of like work-style leggings.  After you get them, come back and tell me how much you love them!  I called the seamstress in right away so I could get a couple inches taken off the length (I rolled them under in the photo).  I'm gonna say size down in them because I was a 0P. 

Halogen colorblock mock neck dress Size 2 $79.90 now, $128 later
How nice is this black and white dress?! It has a Zipper detail all the way down the back too. Might be a bit big on me in the skirt but I love the shape! 

Halogen sleeveless dress XS $44.90 now, $68 later (4 colors) oh la la!!  
This sassy hunter green dress is also super comfy and has gorgeous ruching all down one side.  I think hubby needs to take me on a date!

Frye Melissa Button Leather Riding Boot now $246.90, after sale $367.95

UGG Ava Tall Suede Boot now $149.90, after sale $224.95
They come in 4 colors, but the grey is what I chose.   They fit like a dream, but do have that classic UGG shearling inside, so it's going to be too hot for a warmish day, but perfect for winter/cold days.
