Here’s your next little black dress in a gorgeous burgundy (but it also comes in black).  All that ruching adds to the figure flattering and the shorter length is balanced with the high neckline – also great for showing off a necklace. Under $50!

If you love a Fall dress, this one is so pretty and figure flattering with the blouse style and smocked waist.  It looks great with heels, booties, tall boots and also tights when it gets cold.  A faux leather jacket will also compliment this dress.

How fun is that pattern on these Zella leggings?! They’ve got visual interest, but aren’t too crazy. They have a high waist and are supposed to be ankle length, but I had to roll them under to show some ankle.

The tank is a great basic workout tank with a mesh racerback panel in the back.

Ali-Shaun said she was surprised she liked these joggers, but the lightweight knit fabric felt really comfortable on.  She loved the workout top, but ended up buying the one with the open back.

Pullover

I was happy to see this bright pink pullover at my store.  It’s a crop length that looks great with leggings and the front zip is a sporty touch.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size Small because they didn’t have an XS at my store, but it fit fine

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, activewear, teal alo leggings, black workout tee

Twist Back TeeLeggings

This workout top has a cute cutout in the back that gives it a little something extra!  The leggings are by Alo and have a high waist and smooth seaming with moisture wicking so you don’t get chafed while exercising.  Ali-Shaun loved the color, but said they felt tight on.

Eternal Optimist #raiseshand  I’m so glad I found these pink shorts by Zella.  They have a built-in liner, side slits and a stretchy elastic waist.  If pink isn’t your color, they also come in darks.

Hooded Pullover

Zella’s long sleeve knit tees are in heavy rotation in my closet, but this style with the hoodie and thumb holes is new.  It comes in four colors, the pale pink I’m wearing, navy, grey and black.

Top Fit : I’m wearing XS, and it’s a bit oversized

We probably needed to size down in this jacket because we didn’t feel it was that flattering on.  But, I’ve seen it look great on other people, so maybe try sizing down so that it’s not so fluffy!  It is a nice lightweight fabric and pretty cool how you can cinch the waist.

I got these sporty sneakers to wear when I don’t want to wear boots.  They look better than wearing your athletic sneakers with a regular outfit.

My store had the Claire V perforated with stripe clutch I’ve been eyeing and it’s a good size in person, larger than I expected.

I really liked the new design on these Voluspa candles.  They come in a pack of 5 so you can give them individually as gifts.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Bliss plush throw blankets, fall throw blankets, winter throw blankets

Bliss Plush Throw Blanket

One of the best values in the sale is this ultra soft throw blanket.  It’s only $29 and comes in a rainbow of colors.

BEAUTY

So much goodness in the beauty department, which is where you can stock up on products you’re running low on or want to try while they’re on sale.  Here are my top picks!

As for curling irons, I use the T3 curling iron more than the GHD Curling Iron.  The T3 has different heat settings, but the GHD glides through hair better.  If you have trouble with getting crease marks in your hair, try the GHD and I bet you see a difference.

INTIMATES

No one wants to pay full price for undergarments, and these are the ones I recommend you scoop up while they’re on sale! I bought two more of my everyday bra.
