Hi friends! Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Yesterday was such a fun, busy day! I had a hankering for lasagna and banana nut bread (weird combo, I know!) so I placed a grocery order and had it delivered yesterday morning.
Jordan finished Week 2 of swimming lessons and is doing great! She got two ribbons and now she’s Michael Phelps in Grandma’s eyes. Then, she had a gymnastics playdate with her favorite friend Jonah (apparently they eloped in preK4 last year) while I spent some time working on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content.
When gymnastics was over, Jonah came over for a playdate/movie night. She was so funny and requested he wear cozy pajamas because “movies are better in PJs!” #obviously
The lasagna turned out so good! The kids watched Descendants and I died of cuteness a hundred times listening to their conversations.
Tonight, I’m looking forward to a date night with my man! If you missed our Seaside trip recap, you can catch it here!
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wishlist
Today, I have a bonus Saturday post for you because I wanted to share what’s on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wishlist and What I’m Reordering from past Anniversary Sales. If you haven’t previewed the sale yet, or need to bookmark it, go HERE.
I’ve gone through the entire Anniversary Sale preview and saw lots of great things I want to reorder since they’ll be on sale, but also several “new” items that caught my eye this year!
When I shop the annual Anniversary Sale, I’m always looking for wardrobe staples like boots, jeans, jackets, intimates, accessories, and activewear along with beauty and home items. And it’s the perfect time to get a jump start on Christmas gifts!
I’ll be sharing my top picks in each category with you starting Monday, and also heading to the store with Ali-Shaun to shop. Sign up HERE so you don’t miss our dressing room posts. Y’all tell me those are some of your favorite posts I do all year! #minetoo!
Below is my Wishlist for this year and you can save your favorites to your own wishlist so you’re ready to checkout when the sale goes live for you! I really like having that convenient option!
1 • The North Face Jacket – North Face on sale, #yesplease! This insulated, water resistant hoodie jacket looks perfect for winters and I like the classic black, shorter style, and cuffed wrists. It’s not a huge, bulky jacket, but will pack nicely and travel well.
2 • Zella Sports Bra – I can’t wait to share my Activewear picks with you – there’s lots of goodness in that category this year! I worked hard to get in shape for Florida, but have kinda blown it since. This might be the kick in the pants I need to get going again! One thing I want to try is this new Zella sports bra. The back is cute and functional mesh and the front is ribbed. It’s only $16 on sale!
3 • UGG Genuine Shearling Slippers – I lived in my UGG slippers last year and would love another pair for this season. This style has a suede upper and shearling trim with a soft, cozy lining. The textured, rubber sole makes it perfect for taking them outside when Jordan wants to play outside early in the morning. Better believe I’m bringing my coffee!
4 • GHD Curling Iron 1 1/4 inch – I really love my T3 curling iron, but I’ve heard that hair just glides so easily off of the GHD “Good Hair Day” curling iron. I can’t wait to try it for myself! And the 1 1/4 inch barrel is a versatile size for most hair lengths.
5 • True & Co Body Bralette – I was so happy to see this bralette in the sale. I have a different version that is ultra comfortable, but I really like this one with the skinny, adjustable straps so you don’t see the edges peeking out from your v-neck tee. When you wear this bra, it’s almost like you’re not wearing a bra, which is so lovely! I’ll probably also get the racerback bra too- the lace is gorgeous on that one!
7 • ASICS Gel-Kayano 27 running shoe – How cute are these sneakers?! I’m sure they’ll be quick to sell out because ASICS are also such a quality running shoe. Pair these with a new workout outfit and I’m ready to go!
8 • Vince Camuto Knee High Boots – I always get a pair of booties and knee high boots. I like this pair and the warmer toned cognac version is especially pretty!
9 • Steve Madden Chain Mule – The tan mule I got last year served me well as a comfortable, stylish flat that went with everything. I like how they embellished it this year with a chunkier gold chain.
10 • Tory Burch Crossbody Bag – Tory Burch can do no wrong in my opinion and her bags are always my fave! I like how this one can be carried year round!
10 THINGS I’M REORDERING
Now let’s move on to my reorders. These are things that I have and love and would reorder or recommend for you!
1 • Zella Long Sleeve Tee – I feel like I wore this top a million times last year (after picking it up a the NSale 2020). I bought it in three colors (I don’t think they had the pink, light blue or grey last year) and could definitely use more. I wore them to the gym, but also around the house and out and about! It’s buttery soft, made with a breathable, sweat wicking material to keep you cool. It has a cute v-cutout at the sides too. Top Fit : Runs slightly small, I’m wearing my true size, XS, but if you’re in between sizes, go up one.
2 • Wacoal Strapless Bra – Okay guys, you’ve heard it from me a thousand times before- this is hands down the best strapless bra I’ve tried. You request the link for it all the time- but wait to buy it until the sale goes live because you’ll save almost $30! This convertible strapless bra keeps even larger girls comfortably up without fidgeting because there are gripper strips inside. It’s also lightly padded, which gives you a beautiful shape. I don’t need to reorder (but recommend you get this if you need a strapless bra) because the nude and black I have are still going strong after several years!
3 • Moonlight Dreams Pajama Set – Oh man are these pajamas good! They’re super soft and feel so good against your skin. Plus, if you have to open the door for a neighbor unexpectedly on a weekend morning, you won’t feel embarrassed to be seen in these. You can get them in a shorts set or pants set.
4 • Oribe Texturizing Spray – Rarely a day goes by that I don’t use this miracle texturizing spray, so I know to stock up while it’s on sale!
5 • Barefoot Dreams Light Cardigan – You can’t have too much Barefoot Dreams in your life. I like the “light” version of their open cardigan and have my eye on the pretty light blue. I like keeping one on my desk chair because I tend to get chilly while I’m working away. These make such good gifts too!
6 • Olaplex – This is perfect timing because I’m just about out of my Olaplex No. 3 and the shampoo and conditioner. This set of 3 is almost $50 off.
7 • Neulash – The Nuelash lash serum really worked to help grow out my broken lashes years ago and I’m ready to use it again! You apply it at night to the base of your upper eyelashes and there’s no stinging or burning- it just feels wet. I noticed longer lashes after just a few weeks of nightly applications.
8 • Lancome Mascara Set – The Lancome lash primer is my favorite and I also use the makeup remover, so this set is a no brainer for me.
9 • Seamless Undies – I always stock up on new undies during the sale and these are by far my faves. They are seamless, look barely there under leggings and feel amazing on! I like the black, but they have a NEW leopard design and NEW jewel tones.
10 • Gorjana Tanner Bar Necklace – This simple necklace was one of my daily wears for years until one day when Jordan was a toddler, she accidentally ripped it from my neck. I’ve missed it ever since and will definitely be reordering! It looks pretty with everything and makes a great layering piece. Also a great gift!
I’d love to hear what’s on your wishlist and when you plan to shop the sale! Also, if there’s something specific you want me to review, let me know!
