Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks part 2- $50-$100 Finds

So, I have officially placed my first #Nsale order! Yippeee!!!  I am going to do it chunk by chunk, so it's less shock to the credit card. bahaha. Now time to gear up for my second order! LOL. Here are my $50-$100 picks! PS: if you see something you love, but it is sold out in your size, just call Nordies! They can find it at a store and have it shipped to you for free! That was a great pro-tip my sis gave me! She has the Nordstrom's credit card (whyyyyy do I not have this?! I need one, ASAP), so she started shopping last week.

[1.0] Nike tennis shoes.

These Nike Frees are the most comfortable tennies I have ever owned. I have had two colors, and in both, I ordered up a half size (tennis shoes can be weird like that, ya know?). They feel like you're just wearing socks. They're amazing! They are $89.90.  These are perfect for casual walking, running errands, going to the gym for elliptical/weights, or wearing on dress down Fridays, like I do!

Here is the running version with a little more support. $89.90 down from $120!

[2.0] Updated Sperry Saltwater Duck Boots $84.90 from $129.95!
I am obsessed with my Saltwater Duck Boots. I have the original plaid ones, but I am LOVING the tie on the side of these. Also, the height is a little more reminiscent of the L.L. Bean Boots. Love the gray and ivory a lot. Roll up your jeans with these, and you have a totally cute & warm/dry look!

[3.0] This wedding-guest-dress for $84.90! 
Do you have any fall weddings to attend? This would be perfect and sooooo easy. The colors are vibrant and lovely! I love that it isn't a fitted dress, so you could easily eat all the desserts you want at the wedding. LOL  Isn't that what everyone looks for in a wedding guest dress?! ;-)

[4.0] These Chloe scalloped ballet flat dupes! $79.90
I have a few "lust" items in the back of my head that I always swoon over and daydream about owning one day when I am rich and famous (lol). In that category, are the Chloe scalloped ballet flats. They are stupid expensive. But they look like you'd be walking on leather butter.

Until I am rich, I will stick to more reasonably priced dupes, like these! No one would be the wiser! Also, Born shoes are the most ridiculously comfortable shoes (these are $59.90), and they come in perfect fall hues! Also, there are suede versions, too!

[5.0] THE Majorca Peep Toe Booties that I never shut up about!!! $72.90
I tell everyone who I encounter about these shoes. I have two pairs, and they are perfect to teach in all day. I swear, I would rather teach and stand all day in these than flats. They're amazing!

For a lower-heeled perforated bootie, try these for $69.90!!

How about a sensible waterproof bootie?  Loving the black leather for all winter long. $99.90.

Some amazing color options in this low bootie. $79.90 and I LOVE Franco Sarto. Very comfortable shoes.

[6.0] These adorable gingham-ish Adidas sneaks. $59.90
I am a sucker for a comfortable tennis shoe to wear to and from Pure Barre, to work on Fridays, and just on weekends/casual dates. These fit the bill. Plus, that purple color is so different from what I typically have in tennies! I love the pattern, too!

[7.0] Your new favorite pair of workout leggings! $67.90 
So, I have these, and I purchased them for full price, but I don't even regret it because they're THAT GOOD!!!! I wear them constantly to Pure Barre, and I always get compliments. They lift your ledge and flatten your tummy so much. I wear a small OR medium in Alo leggings. I think I'm like a small and a half or a smedium, if that makes sense. LOL! In pants, I'm a pretty consistent 6, and the small is FINE, and the medium is just a little roomier. I hope my description didn't just confuse you more. LOL! Heck, it's free shipping, get both and return what doesn't fit! #treatyoself #yolo hahaha

I am sooooo pro-Alo leggings. They are pricey, but they stay put and they FLATTER your bod. Try these airbrushed leggings, too!

[8.0] Put a pearl or gem on anything, and you have my attention. Add it to a pair of mules, and I am sold.  Case in point: these beauties.
Wear to work or out on the weekend. I am in love!!!!!! $59.90. Can you imagine wearing those to a Christmas party or winter wedding?! I can!

[9.0] Wear-to-work dresses -- all under $100.

This is soooo classic and adorable-- very Audrey Hepburn meets Kate Spade. LOVE. $98.90

This is a power dress. Wear it for a presentation at work or when you're being observed for teaching! $65.90

This will be adorable with tights and high boots in the fall and winter. Cozy plus! $85.90

[10.0] Joe's skinny jeans-- designer denim. $99.90
Also, these ankle jeans, raw hemmed. $99.90
Okay, I was always anti-designer denim. I figured I loved my $35 Loft jeans, so why spend so much? THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE! I promise. My Joe's are my most beloved jeans. Any opportunity to swoop up Joe's under $100 is VERY EXCITING! I wear a 28 for ref. Did you know that Nordstrom does free alterations?! Epic. (Joe's can run long, just FYI. That's why I love an ankle style because they are basically a normal height person's full length jean).

[11.0] The sweetest blush pink blazer, ever. $89.90
I am OBSESSED with the back peplum/ruffle detailing. Perfect for work! The gray is super practical, too.

[12.0] Chic sunnies. $79.90
Obsessed with the tortoise coloring. Also, I love how oversized they are. They remind me of the Celine sunglasses, but way more affordable!

[13.0] Wear-to-work tops
This might be my favorite top on the whole sale!!!

Lightweight and flowy, plus in a pretty green!

Both could be easily paired with black pants or a pencil skirt.

[14.0] My favorite skirt I own.
I hemmed and hawed about this skirt for months (actually probably closer to two years! LOL) before purchasing it. I could not be happier with a skirt. This is navy-- mine is black, but I LOVE this skirt so much. I have a 6, and I tuck everything from fancy tanks to collared shirts into it. It's so flattering, too. Remember this post?

[15.0] Two last fun dresses!!
This lace tie back one (perfect wedding guest dress- in black, of course!) and this tulle hem one (perfect with the pearl and jeweled mules from above)! Love, love, and more love.

Let me know in the comments below what you've ordered so far from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! 
Remember, it only happens until August 6, and sizes/colors go quickly. Act fast, fashionistas!



  1. Such good picks! I'm obsessed with that navy J. Crew skirt!

    1. Thank you so much, Shannon! Omg, me too! I have the black, but that navy will get sooo much use. It is so flattering, too! And it can be worn with so many different tops. Love, love, love it. Thanks for reading my blog, girl!
