#NSale Update: What I’m Keeping

As I mentioned in this post, the majority of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping has been done online. Free shipping and returns, plus being able to try things on at home and style them with other things in my closet makes it a no-brainer to me! My first shipment arrived yesterday, so I wanted to share an update about what I’m keeping and what is worth buying!

size: S/M, color: almond
This is the fifth sweater/cardigan/wrap that I’ve purchased from Barefoot Dreams and it might be my favorite. It’s ridiculously soft and cozy. I’ll be living in it in the fall and winter. Super cute for lounging and travel, but would also work well with some skinny jeans, a cami, and cute booties! 
size: XS, color: black

I love these leggings for the colder part of the year because they’re a bit heftier than my favorite Lululemon Align Pants. The fabric sucks you in just enough without being uncomfortable or too tight. I’ve had these for a couple years now and they’ve held up wonderfully!
Note: I don’t use these to workout in because I would get too hot! I love them paired with tees and cardigans, a cozy sweatshirt, or with a tunic and booties.

BP. Raw Edge Tee
size: XS, color: white 
I love this tee for the relaxed fit and not-too-low v-neck. I’ve had the white for over a year now (shown above) and love it, so I ordered the ivory and the pink cedar liz stripe.

Adidas Flashback Sneakers
size: 8, color: black
I have a hard time passing up a good black sneaker. I wear sneakers a lot, since so much of my style is casual and athleisure. I wasn’t sure how I would like them on me, but I was pleasantly surprised with just how comfortable and lightweight they are.

Halogen Piper Bootie
size: 8.5, color: black leather/rose gold
I had my eye on these since I first looked through the catalog a couple weeks ago. I love that they’re a bit edgy – the black leather and exposed zipper detail – but will still blend with my wardrobe easily. They’re surprisingly comfortable, too! I’m between an 8 and 8.5 with most shoes, but go up to 8.5 for pointed toe styles, which is the right fit.

Barefoot Dreams “In The Wild” Throw
color: stone/cream
This color combo is currently unavailable, but it’s worth watching for a restock. While it’s not my usual style, the warmth and softness make it well worth the purchase. I’m anticipating many a movie night snuggled up under this gem.

size: 8.5, color: nude leather
I saved the best for last here. These flats are far and away my favorite find of the sale. They’re buttery soft, so chic, and amazingly comfortable. I did size up a half size to accommodate the pointed toe. I’m going to wear the mess out of these flats! If you’re looking to #treatyoself, look no further.
