Weekend Steals & Deals | Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2015

Good morning friends!  Who’s shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with me online today?!?  I spent a good bit of time yesterday going through all the sale items and tried to keep myself from drooling all over my computer! Ha!  I shopped the sale last year in the store and remember being a tad disappointed over the selection, but this year, at least online, there are so many great deals in nearly every department!  I can’t wait to show you my finds and hear about yours!  Let me know in the comments what you picked up!  it’s more fun to share!The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open now for you early bird cardholders to get first dips on items you don’t want to sell out and you’ll also earn double points when you use your cards from the 9th – 16th.  If you want to shop the sale early, go here get the card.  The sale opens to everyone on July 17, which will be here before we know it!

Tomorrow I’ll be competing in my NPC bikini competition and you can follow me on Instagram (@honeywerehome) for updates this weekend.  Thank you so much for sticking with me these last 12 weeks as I prepared!  I’m believing for a great outcome and win or lose, I’ll consider myself a champion for having made it this far without giving up.  And don’t think it didn’t cross my mind. 😉

Now let’s get to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  And see the bottom of the post for sales at other great stores.  🙂

Fall Fashion - Sale tops under $40
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9
I think I’ll take one of everything please!  But, if nothing else, be sure to pick up some Halogen stubby tees (#9) while they are on sale for $15.90!  I live in them during the hotter months, but come fall, they are great layering pieces. I buy XS, and beware they run a tad big, but also shrink a little if you dry them in the dryer.  They have other colors too.
Remember how big plaid was last year?  I spotted a few plaid shirts on sale, but #7 above was my favorite color combo.  Of course I had to throw in some striped shirts and this great long sleeve off-the-shoulder blouse in black.


Fall Fashion - Sale tops under $45

More great tops here for steals!  I love the versatility of the tops on the first row for dressing up or down and find that you can wear these anywhere from work to school and on weekends for running around.  Everyone needs a chambray button-down in their closet and this one is a great style and color. If you don’t have one and you get this one, you’ll thank me later when you’re wearing it with everything!  I’m super in love with #7, will be getting that one and hope it works with leggings and boots later on!

The Pleione Mixed Media Tunic is back too in 12 colors at a crazy-good price – $37.90, normally $58! I loved wearing this last year with leggings.  It’s the perfect bum-covering length! I’m wearing the regular XS, but I could have probably ordered the petite.

Who doesn’t love a PONCHO?! It might be kinda hard to envision cozying up in one of these babies right now if it’s 100 degrees where you are, but come fall (or a cold movie theater or restaurant) and you’ll be ready!  The colors and styles of these ponchos are so fun this year!

Shut the front door that my favorite wear-it-all-the-time Gorjana Taner Small Bar Pendant Necklace is on sale!  It’s normally $60, now $39.90.  I’ve never seen it go on sale before, so this is awesome! It’s one of my most-worn pieces and there is also lots of other Gorjana jewelry on sale!  I’m crazy for my ring and hoop earrings too and they are a killer price now.

I posted these boots and booties yesterday, but in case you missed it, it’s my duty to make sure you see these great deals!

I get most excited about the Fall boots and booties, so I rounded up the best deals for you today from the sale.  You won’t believe the discounts!  So good!  Do you spy some favorites?  Keep in mind most of these boots come in other colors too and the tall boots are available in wide calf sizes for us with a little extra back there. Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns, so order two sizes if you aren’t sure and just return the ones that don’t fit!
