Weekend Steals & Deals | My Nordstrom Sale Purchases & Review

I took a few much-needed days off blogging to spend at home and with my son this week and it’s done me good.  That contest wore me out and I couldn’t be more grateful for your kind and thoughtful comments on my recap post.  Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel good!  I’ve been enjoying different food without going overboard lately and have been indulging in this sweet treat without all the fat and calories. It’s perfect for us ice-cream lovers. I’ll be sharing more of my post-contest meals and fitness plan soon.

As our summer winds down (school starts back so early here – August 12!), I’ll be ‘slow blogging’, just here and there so I get to soak up as much time with my 5-year old as I can before he’s gone everyday.  He’s at the sweetest stage where he just wants to be with his parents all the time and I’m loving it!  We’ll be taking a short weekend trip soon too and it will be great to get away. 

This week, some of my order from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale arrived and so now I can share my thoughts with you on all the boots and booties I ordered- remember I went a little overboard and ordered all of these: Baila Ashton Wedge Ankle BootieLucky Brand Betwixt BootieLucky Brand Heloisse BootVince Camuto Maves Bootie, and the Born Helen Boot.

See all my boots and booties picks here. πŸ˜‰

And I did a big Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale round up here so definitely check that out!  There are so many great deals to be had and prices go up Monday, August 3.

Fall fashion - Halogen Long Sleeve Chambray shirt, Lucky Brand Heloisse Boots, Gorjana jewelry
First off, this Halogen Long Sleeve Chambray shirt is my new fave! It’s hard to tell from a photo but it’s super soft and looks ‘lived in’.  I bought it in navy and white, but they also have a tan one called ‘stone fossil’ that I want now since I know the quality of the shirt in person.  If it’s sold out by the time you check, I hope they restock.  They often do, so check back if they don’t have your size/color.  I’m wearing regular XS here, but it also comes in petite.
These Lucky Brand Heloisse Boots are really nice too.  They come in three colors (two browns and a black).  They fit me perfectly true to size and I think they’d be great for running around it since the heel isn’t too tall and the toe is rounded.  I’m still deciding if I’ll keep them because I’m so picky about boots and I’m thinking I may still make a run to the store to see if I have found the best ones.

I loved the look of the Born Helen Boot because they are so pretty, but the calf was too wide on me, poking out on the sides of my leg.  It’s a bummer because they actual fit in the foot was perfect and they were really comfortable.  Every pair of Born shoes I’ve tried on have a great comfy fit.

The Lucky Brand Betwixt Bootie is a great short bootie in a lightly distressed suede and comes in 4 colors. I ordered a half size up and they fit great.  This color (dark moss) will go with so much this fall and winter.

My two favorite booties this year are the Baila Ashton Wedge Ankle Bootie and the Vince Camuto Maves Bootie.

Baila Ashton Wedge Ankle Bootie – I love the look, fit and feel of this wedge bootie.  I ordered a half size up. 
Fall fashion - Vince Camuto Maves Bootie
Vince Camuto Maves Bootie – I had to order a half size up on these too. Gorgeous color! 
I’m also crazy for the Bobeau long cardigan (2 for $65).  It’s soft and cozy and comes in 12 colors/patterns.  The XS fit perfectly, but I wanted them a little roomier, so I got the small.  This is great for layering over tanks and tees.  I’m wearing the Topshop U-neck tank hereonly $18

I had mixed feelings about the blanket poncho.  It’s seriously so soft and cozy (not at all scratchy) and I could totally see wrapping up in this on the couch while watching tv, but I could never wear it out of the house- it totally swallowed me.  And I’m wearing the XS.  Sadly, it’s probably going back. πŸ™

I’m definitely keeping this quilted vegan cross body bag.  It’s only $21.90 (reg. $34). I’ve already used it and love the size and expensive look for less.

I’ve told you before about my HWH Everyday Fave Halogen tee shirt and they are on sale for $15.90 (regularly $25) so stock up now.  They even have a couple colors marked down to $12.90! My latest one is a fun light blueish-grey/white stripe.  I buy XS to allow for shrinkage.

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Hoping you don't get double comments for me- didn't realize I could sign in with google. LOVE your blogs! Fridays are my favorite! I appreciate your attention to detail and you are super organized! Have a great weekend!

  2. Just being honest, I miss your home posts. All I see now are fashion posts where affiliate links are used. Or like it to know it stuff. Any chance you will return to your roots?

    1. Thanks Melissa. I'm just blogging what I'm into these days like the last three months of bikini prep and I love doing the Weekend Steals & Deals and fashion- those have been a staple for over the last year. I have home projects planned for the fall but it was too hard to do contest prep and start new home stuff at the same time. I didn't want to rush something in my home or put something sloppily together just for the sake of having home blog content. I use affiliate links in both home posts and fashion posts so it's not the driving factor of what type of posts I publish. I do love hearing you miss the home posts though. You'll be excited to see what's in store this fall! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

    2. Thanks for replying! I hated typing the comment but I did want to give feedback. That's very true, I'm just being selfish πŸ™‚ you're my favorite blogger! Definitely excited for Fall πŸ™‚ have a great weekend as well πŸ™‚

    3. No worries Melissa! You have a valid point, I've missed the home posts too! Also, I'm sure other people feel similarly! You're sweet to write back. Big hug to you girlie! πŸ™‚

    1. Going by way too fast! Elie has to report to work Monday for pre-planning and we move Katie to Knoxville in two weeks!!! But thanking His for the time we had with them!!

  3. You look so dang cute in everything! And you've totally inspired me to try red. I love the Lucky riding boots, I think they are keepers for me, and I was surprised by how squishy and comfy the Lucky booties were! Great picks, girlie!

  4. I've been eyeing that quilted vegan bag. I'm so glad to hear that you love the size. Must pull trigger on it now! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend Megan!
