Today officially marks the start of public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which means everyone gets to shop! At this point I feel like I have browsed/shopped the sale a few times and I have a pretty good understanding of the best things to add to your list. My strategy is to stay away from the more trendy items (except this dress is only $35, seen here!) and really focus on closet staples. Items that you KNOW you’ll wear in the fall and most likely for seasons to come. 

My outfit is one of my favorites from the sale (you can see more looks here). I immediately fell in love with this little Rebecca Taylor shirtdress. I have always loved the idea of a shirtdress but most of the time them seem a bit stuffy for my style. This one is fun and flirty with the drop waist and mini fit. It fits a bit on the boxy side which I actually prefer since I am the widest at my hips. I’m wearing a size small. 

I paired it with my new favorite Vince loafers for fall. Hoping these are restocked for you all! If not, a few other pink flats that I found are these, these and these (apparently a trend for fall!). Accessories are one of my favorite parts of sale. I picked up these ear crawlers that are perfect for everyday and this criss cross ring. I picked up two pairs of sunglasses – these Le Specs aviators and these Sonix sunglasses. Sadly my Sonix sunnies were gone fast (again, hoping for a restock) but they are available in other colors here.

Before I met Dave I had never been to Michigan. I feel like when you’re from Chicago you either venture to Wisconsin or Michigan in the summer and my family always went to Wisconsin. However, my mom was actually born in Birmingham, MI (where Dave is from) and Dave’s grandfather was her family’s pediatrician – SMALL WORLD. I digress.

I love time away when you can throw on your easiest pieces and just be. You don’t worry about makeup or doing your hair. You just let it go! The epitome of summer. Like I mentioned above, this dress is such a staple. I can never have enough t-shirt dresses and this, this and this are a few of my favorites. An open knit sweater is a MUST HAVE when the weather cools down. I’m wearing this J.Crew sweater but I love this one, this one, this one and this one

Since the floral print of the dress is so feminine I decided to add some grey accessories to make it a little less girly. This grey suede moto jacket is such a fun piece and can easily be thrown over everything. This jacket was just RESTOCKED in ALL SIZES. The same style is available in faux leather or other suede colors. I paired the dress with these studded sandals which are under $100. I love the grey color and edgy details. They are fully stocked and run true to size (I’m wearing a size 7). If you’re looking for a cute crossbody bag for fall this Rebecca Minkoff style is perfect. It is sold out in the grey but is still available in gold, pink velvet (which I also bought!) and this embroidered style.

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in full swing I took advantage and stocked up on some activewear for now and after baby. My due date is in November so once I get the clear to workout again it will be nice to have some new workout gear to motivate me. 

I couldn’t pass up these pink Adidas sneakers. Sadly they have sold out but I’ll definitely keep you posted if they come back in stock – a few other favorites from the sale are these, these and these. I immediately gravitated towards these Reebok paint splatter leggings because the fabric is INSANE. So soft, silky and comfortable even with a growing bump.

These past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind! Between packing, chasing a toddler, working, living amongst boxes, realizing you packed all of your forks, knives, plates, etc. when it’s time to eat dinner, tying up loose ends with our apartment and moving with Webster and Charlie – there has been a big lack of sleep and/or eating nutritious meals. I know that these phases come and go so I just had to ride the wave. However, trying to do it all while taking care of a toddler who has no idea what is going on – is tough. Especially when it comes to meals and you have nothing in your home. Enter Quaker Overnight Oats.
