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.
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!!
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!
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
UGG Ava Tall Suede Bootnow $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.
Hey friends! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you twice that it’s an exciting day for all of us fashion lovers! I know y’all are just as excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as I am! And I’m so happy you’re here to shop with me! #itsmorefunwithfriends! Cue the champagne, cheers and confetti!!! I actually did have mimosas while I shopped the sale early yesterday and can I tell you- shopping is even more fun with a little side of bubbly! #youknewthat! I think they wanted to get me drunk so I’d shop my face off. As if I needed liquid courage for that! I hope you are at home or work (shh, I won’t tell!) shopping online, because I’m sure the store is crazy packed today and I wouldn’t want to fight the traffic or dressing rooms today of all days!
And, if you aren’t quite sure what all the fuss is about, it’s okay, I’m happy to fill you in! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is THE SALE with all the NEW fall fashion goodness that is just released, but at slashed prices for three weeks, then they go up to full-price. The things that are on sale now are the things you will be itching to wear the minute the slightest hint of a cool front hints- and actually even a few things you could get away with wearing now. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens today for cardholders, (get a card here and shop today) but don’t worry, if you don’t have a card, you can start shopping next Friday! Mark your calendars to come back here, because I will have more to share!
At the store yesterday, I found so much to share with you that I’m breaking it into two posts. I’ll be back tomorrow with the second half. This post is already super long, so I tried to keep my commentary brief and informative! Maybe go ahead and pour yourself that mimosa, I’ll wait . . . . .
First up, I’ve been aching for a new pair of jeans and was specifically excited to try the much-loved AG skinny jeans. I’ve read the rave reviews about this quality, designer jean with a flattering fit, so that’s one of the first things I reached for! This pair is with a raw hem delivered and will make you look like a skinny mini! They fit TTS, but of course were a little long on me. The alterations lady actually said I could just cut the hem at home with scissors so that’s what I plan to do. Her only tip: be sure to cut a straight line!
This off-shoulder top sure ups the game on your grandpa’s flannel shirt! It’s super soft and cozy, and the off-shoulder/long sleeves are an awesome combo. I tried on XS and it fit fine, but the petite would probably be better. It also comes in pink and I think I need that one too! You know I’m going to recommend my all-time favorite strapless bra and I couldn’t believe our good fortune when I saw the PERFECT T-Shirt bra included in the sale. Remember the one I was giddy to find that’s wireless and seamless with good lift. Yep, it’s on sale for $39, $60 after the sale.
AND, my very favorite seamless panties that stay in place all day and are ultra comfortable, so much so that you’ll forget you’re wearing them. Those panties are in the sale for only $13, $19 after the sale. I’m thrilled to see more colors like pink and aqua- they only had tan, black and brown before.
Of course I was anxious to try on boots and booties, but this suede slide is one of the pairs of shoes I loved the most. It fit the most comfortably and the suede is buttery soft.
Right away I was smitten with the cowl neck sweater vest. The waffle fabric is thick and the baby pink is really pretty. It’s got small v-cuts on the side and isn’t the pocket a fun detail? A tight turtleneck isn’t usually my thing, but I love the looser cowl neck style.
