Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Early Access

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Early Access
Today marks the day for all Nordstrom cardholders to access the sale early before everyone is able to shop on August 19th! I've already shared with you all:

The items that I have and love 
Favorite Beauty Products
My Favorite Jeans on Sale

So today I thought I would share with you all some past photos of me styling some items that I have and love and share with you all what I ordered. I ordered last Friday and am still waiting on my order to arrive. Since I already had so much from this sale that I got in previous years, you'll see I really didn't snag too much!

Pink Stemless Wine Glasses// At a price of $25 for 6, I can't be too sure these will be great, but I thought it was worth the order to find out! I love colored glassware!

Slippers// So these are made by UGG and I have and love their shearling boots. I have worn them since I was 14 and they're never leaving me because they are so comfortable and cozy and that alone is enough- I don't care how they look!! However, the Uggs I have are made of shearling and these are made of 'ugg pure wool' which is wool that is supposed to feel like shearling. I'll be interested to see how they feel. I loved the look of them and love that they are a slide. I LOVE the LLBean wicked good slippers but really only wear those in the winter so I wanted something with a little less foot coverage for the other seasons. If I end up not loving them, I'll return them and likely buy these.

NeuBrow Serum// This is a favorite brow serum of mine and I just ran out so this is perfect timing.

Pima Cotton Pajama Set (Shorts Set, too!)// I'm a pajama hoarder and I have a lot of different brands that I enjoy. You all know my favorite brand, Lake, but these are up there, too. They are SO soft because they are the same material as Lake: Pima cotton. This is a great price for them as I have rarely seen them priced this low.

Joggers// I definitely don't need another pair of sweats, but I was curious about these because they look a little 'dressier' than typical sweats (only in 2020 would I put the word 'dressier' in front of sweats, hahah!!).

Seamless Sports Bra//I love seamless sports bras so I wanted to try this one out. The price is great!

Bobbi Brown Balm Duo// Had to get this for 'research' into my favorite tinted lip balms, ha!

CZ Stud Earrings// I ordered a backup pair of these because I tend to lose earrings and I love these so much. You save almost $20 by buying them in the sale.

L'Occitane Duo// Have been out of this for a while and hope this would be included in the sale so I could get some more. I tried the Trader Joe's version of this but it fell flat for me. This is the 'good stuff'.

Cozy Sock Set// I really don't get the hype around Barefoot dreams, but I do love cozy socks and needed a few new pairs for this winter.

Airbrush Leggings// These are great leggings. Love the look of them, they are comfortable, good for both lounge and working out, and wash well. 

I share these every year as they have a different wash or distressing so they look slightly different each year. But the fit is the same. They're roomy, boyfriend-style denim with a tiny bit of stretch. They're flattering and a great lounge pair of jeans. 

These are one of my favorites as they are super stretchy and comfortable. They're very casual and look great with chunky sweaters and button-downs. 

Cashmere Cardigan (from past sales) but I love this one and this one. I wear this SO often in the colder months. I wear it over leggings, dressed up with heels and leather leggings, and even over pajamas. It's a wardrobe VIP of mine and I feel so happy whenever I put it on. Vince is typically high quality and has pieces that last for ages.  

I wrote a whole blog post about these jeans and this outfit that you can read, here

This is included in the sale seemingly every year. It's such a classic. I have two: one in black and one in gray. I wear it most as a layer when skiing and also with leggings. But it also looks great with skinny jeans and Bean Boots during the fall. This is also great with a puffer vest overtop. 

I could write a book about how much I love these faux diamond stud earrings. They look beautiful and at under $30 make a cute gift. I ordered another pair in case I lose these. It's almost $20 savings so it is really worth it to buy in the sale!

'Bad' Deals and Some Thoughts:
Pave Diamond Stacking Ring. It only has .13 carats of diamonds. Not that the carat weight is bad- I'm sure it is beautifully dainty, however, the price can be beaten so many other places!

This camel coat is good looking, however, with 44% polyester, it's a lot of synthetic material for the price! I personally prefer a wool/nylon blend if anything when it comes to a nice, high quality, warm winter coat.

- I absolutely love the look of this sweater. Since it is Vince you think they wouldn't use polyester or such an odd blend of fibers. I actually added this to my cart because I assumed it would be a wool/cashmere blend. I looked back at the details for the price and immediately took it out of my cart. Even at the sale price of $199, I think it's not a good deal. I was surprised to see this from a brand like Vince that usually steers clear of synthetics in their higher-end sweaters. This is another sweater from Vince that is the same example. Just gorgeous but an odd mix of fibers.

J.Crew Cardigan. This cardigan is cute and classic but since J.Crew is on sale constantly at such steep discounts, I bet in a few weeks, this cardigan will be on even better sale on J.Crew's site.

This sweater is mostly all acrylic. Nope!

- Love love love the look of this beautiful blue coat. But it is 45% polyester and unlined. At almost $200, the quality is not worth the price. If it were lined and more wool or nylon, I'd totally pay the price tag OR if this coat was lower-priced, around $150 or less but the quality it is, I'd also buy it.

- I have these faux leather leggings and I don't really love them. They are super hyped up by so many people so I think it might just be a personal preference. I just think they look like athletic leggings and not actual leather leggings that you can wear with nicer outfits.

- This is my favorite Barbour jacket from the sale. I'm always asked about the Barbour jackets and this time I was left underwhelmed compared to year's past.

- Didn't love too many pairs of shoes. My top favorites were these booties and these mules.

I love your posts on the sale because you address the quality of items, which with COVID times, most likely we won't be touching our purchases until they're at home. Thats something I miss so much about shopping store. I'd love if you could do in depth on how to purchase quality items. Especially items you'll have for a long time, such as winter coats, and bedding. I know you've covered jewelry and furnishings in the past, I just love them so much. :)

I just read in two blogs about the faux diamond earrings. I decided to get a pair and they’re sold out! Maybe I’ll catch them next time!
