Nordstrom Anniversary Fails.. Things I missed out on…

Everyone knows the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the sale of all sales.. I look forward to it every year as every other woman in the world does.. But you can’t be lolligagging with decisions because merchandise sells out FAST…

Don’t get me wrong I was able to purchase a healthy amount of stuff, but I did miss out on somethings I wish I pulled the trigger on while they were still available..

Here are the things I wish I would’ve purchased and look for everyday hoping they will come back instock befor the sale is over..

 

Main Image - Madewell Catskills Jacket

This Madewell Jacket, I missed out on, if you can believe it I don’t not have a Utility jacket.. I know I think I’m the last person ever to not have one… 

Main Image - Leith Easy Circle Cardigan

I really liked this Leith Cardigan better than the BP one I got, but again I was too late.. I wanted it either in the burgundy or pink color… 

Main Image - Patagonia Quilted Pullover

Lately it seems like I’ve been purchasing more navy legging than black and don’t really have much to wear with navy. I thought this Patagonia Quilted Pullover would be perfect, I just didn’t love the price.. Now I wish I would’ve purchased it.. 

Main Image - Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie (Women)

I love the color of these Hinge Booties and the heel didn’t seem to tall.. Of course went back to get them and GONE….

Main Image - BRUNETTE the Label Fries Before Guys Sweatshirt

I thought this Sweatshirt was so cute, my style for sure comfy and casual..

 

Main Image - Topshop Ripped Denim Jacket

This Topshop Denim Jacket for sure…. It would been amazing with leggings, a lil skirt or maxi dress.. I could’ve worn the mess out of it…

Main Image - Halogen® Corbin Genuine Calf Hair Slide Loafer (Women)

And last but definitely not least these Halogen Slides… Slides are a big deal right now and I love me so leopard. I just wasn’t sure exactly were I would wear them, I’m a kinda casual gal and don’t really get dressed up a ton.. But should would’ve been nice to have in my closet…

 

Now don’t think I would’ve broke the bank by purchasing all of this plus everything else I got.. I would’ve rather purchased some of the above items instead of what I purchased…

 

Thanks again for reading, 

Nancy XOXO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

This sale is by far my most favorite sale of the year. It’s a great time to pick up some Fall pieces for almost 40% off the regular price. If you have a Nordstrom credit card or Nordstrom Debit card you could’ve started shopping on 7/13, public access started on 7/21. I always shop the early access because merchandise sells so fast you can’t wait.

I wanted to share with you some of my picks that I’ve purchased from the sale or wished I purchased but was too late on deciding..

 

Main Image - adidas Tubular Viral 2 Sneaker (Women)

I purchased these  Adidas on the early access and I’m glad I did because they sold out pretty quick. You can keep checking back because they do periodically get sizes in, as of right now they only have an 8.5 available online.

The reviews stated they ran big and to order a size to size and a half smaller than your regular size, I didn’t find that to be true. I ordered an 8 with my normal size is an 8.5, I could’ve used the 8.5 but will keep my 8, my toe was right to the end.

They are very comfortable and I love the pink color. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the color being so light they may get dirty easier.

 

 

Main Image - Zella Intrigue High Waist Crop Leggings

 

These Zella Leggings were also one of my early access purchases. I was going out of town and thought these would be perfect for what I needed and unfortunately they didn’t work out.

This is why I didn’t love them…  I bought my normal size medium and my thighs poured out of the slits and the bottom part was too tight around my calves. I have an athletic build with muscular thighs and calves but not overly muscular.  So I returned them…

This is the last item I purchased on the early access.. I don’t have the link because it’s sold out but I LOVE IT… It’s a JCrew Tee Shirt and it went quick..

I had to order it as it was only sold online and in the DT Seattle and Bellevue stores..

I ordered it in a medium and it fit great, the only thing I wish is that it was a little bit longer.. I have a pretty long torso and like to do the front tuck with my shirts and I can barely tuck this one in.. But other than that is is one of my favs..

 

Ok, now on to what I’ve purchased since the public access started:

 

Main Image - BP. Hooded Cotton Anorak

 

I can’t wait to wear this BP Jacket . I think it will be a perfect Fall jacket to wear with leggings and or denim and with some cute little booties, which of course I purchased and will show you in a sec…

I got my normal size medium and it has a little drawstring in the back to cinch it up so it shows off your waist.. Definite keeper for sure..

 Main Image - Vince Camuto Prasata Bootie (Women)

These are the Booties I got, which will be so cute with that jacket.. I love the color of these, as every other Bootie I own is a camel color.

I did have to buy an 8 because they did not have my size 8.5 in stock and I didn’t want to miss out on them. I’m hoping the 8 fits so I don’t have to exchange them.

I haven’t received them yet so I can’t do a review on them other than I hope they’re as cute on as they are in the pic..

Main Image - adidas Originals Trefoil Crewneck Sweatshirt

 

So excited to receive this guy, I’ve been eyeing this Adidas Sweatshirt for a couple months and almost bought it at full price, so glad I waited..

This guy sold out fast, so when it came back in stock I purchased the XL so I wouldn’t miss out on the sale.. I did go into the store and they were able to order my normal size medium, so I will return the XL…

This will be perfect with my new leggings I purchased, can’t wait to get it.. I know it will be perfect…

Main Image - Zella Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings

These are the Zella Leggings that will go perfectly with the Adidas Sweatshirt.

I’ve wanted a pair of Moto Leggings and was looking at these ALO  leggings, so glad these went these ones, they were half the price and just as cute and comfy.

Last thing I purchased for myself..this BP Cardigan in Burgundy. Unfortunately this color is sold out but they have it available in limited sizes in Black and Olive Tapenade.

I purchased it in a large but need it in a medium, I’m hoping I can exchange it for the right size after the sale and they get everything replenished..

I bought the black one last year and love it, the only thing I didn’t like about it is it pilled more than I wanted.. Not enough to return LOL…

 

That’s all I bought for myself, didn’t do too much damage.. I did buy a couple things for my lil guy…

 

Main Image - adidas Tubular Shadow Knit Sneaker (Big Kid)

I always buy him a new pair of shoes for school and this is the pair he wanted this year, the Adidas Tubular

His big brother loves Adidas and he wanted a pair to be like him.. So cute… They fit him great and are so comfortable…

 

Main Image - Vans Classic Graphic Hoodie (Big Boys)

This is the last thing I got him was this Vans Sweatshirt. I don’t normally buy too much for him at this sale but thought this was cute.. He’s happy with joggers and sweatshirts from the Gap and Target..

 

There were  more things I wanted but they sold out so fast I couldn’t get them.. I could probably do a post on all the things I missed out on, sad :{

Thanks for reading…

Nancy, XOXO

 

 

 

 

 

Friday Favs

I can never pass up a good deal… Here’s what I found so far this week…..

Here’s what I found at The Loft, they’re having 40% Friends and family going on right now… They did have these for 50% off but I was too late to pull the trigger on them.. That’s what I get, I’m always looking for the best deal and sometimes miss out because I think they may be even cheaper….

Primary Image of Fringe Sweater Jacket

I love this cardigan and you can wear it multiple different ways..

I’m pretty casual and see it worn with a cute t shirt underneath.. You can dress it up and put a button up with it as well…

Primary Image of Chambray Ruffle Neck Softened Shirt

Can you really have too many denim shirts? I like this one because of the sleeves.. It would  be cute with a pair of white denim jeans and some cute wedges… You can throw that above black sweater over it… I would even dress up and wear it to work..

Soo cute…

Primary Image of Striped Bell Sleeve Henley

Another cute top with bell sleeves.. This one I would wear to work or casual with a pair of jeans..

Am I the only one that ever feels like they can never have enough cute tops? I swear all I ever wear are t shirts.. It’s nice to have something you can wear dressy or casual..

Casual is the name of my game for sure…

Primary Image of Pocket Open Cardigan

This wine color cardigan is just what I need when I want to wear leggings… I love the whole leisurewear look but want something more than just a sweatshirt to wear with them..

I also love this wine color, it gets me out of wearing my usual black, gray or white…

Now here’s what I found at Banana Republic…. 

They’re actually having 40% off everything..

product photo

I like the color of this cardigan.. I’m still trying to add more color to my wardrobe.. Of course I went for the gray one first but then decided I may like this color better…

product photo

I had to show you the detailing on the back of this sweater.. The reviews said they’ve even worn it with the lace ties in the front..

I think it’s so cute!

Main Image - AG The Legging Step Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Radiant Blue)

AG Jeans are my absolute favorite pair of denim. I have not found another pair that even compare to the comfort of AG… and believe me I have a ton of jeans to compare them to.

I love the distressed in this pair and the uneven raw hem is the icing on the cake…

Of  course these babies are not on sale, but I will continue to keep my eye on them, I”m not ready to pay full price for them..

This week was a very uneventful week as far as shopping goes.. All of these above items are either in my shopping basket or I’m just dreaming about them..

Until we meet again next week, I hope you enjoyed my Friday Favs..

Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter,

XOXO, Nancy

Friday Favs

Hello there, it’s been a busy couple weeks and I didn’t get a chance to get the Friday Fav’s up last week. So here it is for this week..

Main Image - Marc Fisher LTD 'Adalyn' Espadrille Wedge Sandal (Women)

I’m hoping these  sandals are as good as everyone says they are… I wasn’t going to purchase them but they are on sale, so I couldn’t pass up a good deal. I’ve never seen them on sale and I think that I can wear them a couple times…

Main Image - Quay Australia 'On the Prowl' 55mm Oversize Square Sunglasses

I haven’t purchased these little babies yet but I’m on the verge.. I love that they’re so stylish but not to expensive either.. You will now when I purchase them because they will be all over Instagram..

product photo

How cute is this lil jacket? I work out a lot and always looking for clothes to wear.. This would be perfect just to pop on over my clothes and it’s something different than what I normally wear.. This only reason why I haven’t purchased it yet, is that some of the reviews say it snags easy.. Still debating on it…..

OMG, I love these tights.. They’ve been in my basket for awhile,  I want them but just a little scared of what that leopard print will look like on my thighs.. They’ve also sold out a couple times and whenever I get the nerve to try them, my size is gone.. I think I’m going to just do it… They can’t look that bad, right, The reviews are really good on them and I’m trying to get away from just the basic black tight that I have a million pairs of…

product photo

I almost purchased this cardigan in the store at full price.. Soo glad I didn’t because now it’s on sale plus an additional 45% off.. I do have to say I was a little a disappointed because I was trying to purchase it today but I couldn’t find my cc and my old one wasn’t working.. I called the number online to see if they could help me and they said I had to have the right card.. So I called the store thinking maybe I could go in and purchase it because they could do a look up for me… ( I also had some rewards to use but you have to use your card in order to use the rewards ).. When I called the store it was full price and they wouldn’t match the price online.. Kinda frustrating since I really wanted it.. I think it would be so cute with a pair of leggings..

I work retail and I’m all about Customer Service and I just didn’t feel like they wanted my business.. I’m going still keep it in mind and maybe when I receive my new card it will still be such a smokin deal…

Sandal Pick’s for Summer

Summer is my favorite season, as I’m sure it is for almost everyone who lives where you have the 4 seasons…. I’m just so ready to start wearing my sandals….

Here’s a look at my favorite styles for this season…..

Main Image - Marc Fisher LTD 'Adalyn' Espadrille Wedge Sandal (Women)

I’ve been watching these Marc Fisher’s  since last year.. I’ve debated on them and go back and forth on whether or not I should purchase them.. I’m such a casual person, that I’m afraid I won’t wear them that much.. But I do really like them… TBD…

Jaylen Wedge Sandal

 These Steve Madden Sandals are a great dup for the Marc Fisher’s and 1/3 of the price…. Although I think the reviews are better for the Marc Fishers, if you’re looking for a less expensive pair this pair would be good…Humm… Decisions??

Main Image - Steve Madden 'Sammson' Lace-Up Gladiator Sandal (Women)

I like the gladiator style and have a couple cute pairs but aren’t quite this high.. I love these Steve Madden Sandals and again saw them last year and wish I would’ve purchased them… I think they look super cute with cut off shorts, denim skirt or a cute dress… The price isn’t too bad either..

I couldn’t find a good dupe for these guys… But wanted to show you what I was diggin this season…

Main Image - Tory Burch 'Patos' Gladiator Sandal (Women)

I really like these Tory Burch Sandals, but I don’t love the price… They would be cute casual or you could dress them up a little with some white denim capri’s…

Not 100% sold on them because of the price..but still super cute…

Main Image - MICHAEL Michael Kors Fallon Gladiator Sandal (Women)

These Michael Kors  could be a cute alternative to the Tory Burch and half the price…

Main Image - TKEES 'Foundations' Flip Flop

Ok, so I love a good pair of comfortable flip flops that you can just throw on whether it’s a causal look or if you want to dress if up a little more.. I’ve purchased these TKEE’s before and loved them but found an almost exact pair for a fraction of the price… The TKee’s run for about $50….

Here’s the pair I found that are only $9.99 and don’t they look exactly like the TKEE’s? Well they’re Lauren Conrad Flip Flops from Kohl’s… I love them, they are my absolute favorite, I wear them with everything in the Summer… I hate wearing real shoes in the Summer, you’ll always find me in flip flops or sandals if I have to dress it up a little more…

Hope you enjoyed all my picks…

XOXO, Nancy

Friday Favs

Here are my Friday Favs for this week:

I’ve been waiting for these jeans to go on sale for a little while now.. They finally did, so I purchased them along with another pair that I will post in a minute..

These are so cute on and have the distressing in all the right places. I love the hem on these and will be wearing the mess out of them for the next couple of months, before it gets too hot and I’ll be wearing shorts..

When I purchased them they were buy 1 get 1 50% off, with an additional $25 off $100 purchase.  Now they’re 40% off, which I would’ve preferred because I really didn’t need another pair.. I just wanted the discount…

Here’s the second pair I purchased.. I really like the distressing on these but when I put them on, they crotch was too saggy, and I hate that.. I know that I would never wear them if I kept them, so I think they’re going back…

Z Supply Camo Pocket Racer Tank

Love me some camo… This might be my favorite shirt so far, I cannot get enough of camo.. I also purchased this shirt in the SS verison, which I will show you in a sec.. With this recent purchase I will have this shirt in LS, SS and this tank.. Too much you think? Nah…

I found it at this cute little online Boutique called HER Boutique where I purchased it… If you sign up for their newsletter they send you a code for 17% off.. Plus if you purchase more than $49 the shipping is free, that’s why I also purchased the SS shirt…

Z Supply Camo Pocket Tee

Here it is in the SS verison … See isn’t it super cute? I know I will wear it a ton…

 Women's UA Fit Happens Strappy Tank 1 Color $29.99

I have never worn Under Armour and I received a coupon from My Fitness Pal for $40 off $100 purchase, so I thought I would try a couple pieces.. I’m always looking for sleeveless shirts to work out in and I’m hoping this one will be cute.. It may look a little short, I have a fairly long torso.

I will let you know once I receive it…

Women's NFL Combine Authentic UA Muscle T-Shirt, Seattle Seahawks

Of course I had to get this shirt, representing my team… Seahawks baby!

It looks really cute and I think it will be long enough….

New Arrival Women's UA Fly-By Mesh Inset Capris 2 Colors $54.99

The last thing I got from Under Armour were these tights. I love the color and wanted something a little different than the normal black I always wear.

Friday Favs

Kicking off Friday favs with my purchases from this week:

NEO Courtset Sneaker - Womens

Love, Love, Love these Adidas.. Love the color, love the fit, love that they go with everything, love the price… I’ve been looking at these at other retailers but found them here for more than $20 cheaper.. They come in a bunch of different colors, which I will probably get another pair, maybe 2…

Main Image - adidas Originals Boyfriend Tee

Finally purchased this Adidas Tee, I’ve been looking at it for awhile and just thought what the heck. I really wanted the crewneck sweatshirt like this but can’t find it anywhere.  Probably a good thing since I’m hoping for warmer weather and might not get as much use out of it as I would this tee.

Main Image - Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

Zella Live In High Waisted Leggings are da bomb…. I have this same pair that I purchased last year, but not high waisted. Holy Cow…. what was I thinking??? I will never buy a pair of leggings again unless they are high waisted.. They hold in all your junk like no body’s business…

Main Image - Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee

I’m all about being comfy and casual and these Madewell Tee’s are amazing… I have them in black, white, army green, burgandy and now this stripe. I love me a good stripe tee, so I’m sure I’ll be wearing the mess out of this one as well…

Main Image - Zella Flash High Waist Leggings

Can I just tell you that I love the leisurewear trend going on right now.. I hope it lasts forever… When I’m not working I’m all about being comfortable, sometimes on my day’s off you’ll be lucky I get dressed and put a bra on.. Now with these Zella Flash High Waisted Leggings I can still be stylish and comfortable, if I decide to leave the house. LOL  I tend to be a hermit in the winter months..

Lastly:

This Rebecca Minkoff Large Moto Satchel.. This was a steal of a deal and unfortunately it’s now out of stock.. I’ve always wanted a Rebecca Minkoff bag but just never really found one I love, until I found this beauty. I’ve seen this one before on other bloggers and thought it was cute, so I decided to look into it and found it for 50% off.. I thought that definitely has to be a sign.. So I purchased it, so far I love it.. It’s just the right size, I can carry it as a crossbody if I want or just by the handles..

This bag will get some use for sure…

I don’t normally shop quite this much each week, unless you ask my husband.. He thinks I get something in the mail everyday.. I would love too but I really don’t..

For my weekly Friday Fav’s I will share with you any purchases I’ve made or items I have in my shopping cart wanting to purchase..

Again I hope you enjoyed this post,

XOXO Nancy

Favorite Graphic Tee’s and Sweatshirts

I love the graphic tee trend going on right now… I wanted to show you some of my favorites, some of them are sitting in my closet and some of them need to be in my closet…

Main Image - adidas Originals Boyfriend Tee

I just purchased this Adidas Tee and so far, it might be my favorite. I’m not sure why I waited so long to buy it. It does run a little big, so I sized down to a small. What I like about this tee is that it looks really cute with some leggings and a bomber jacket. You can put it with a pair of jeans and some cute Adidas Superstar Sneakers.

I wore it on the plane with these Zella leggings, and it was perfect, so comfortable..

Main Image - Sincerely Jules 'Worth the Wait' Graphic Tee

This is the first Sincerely Jules Tee I own and love the fit… I saw a few of them at Nordstrom and thought they looked pretty boxy and maybe a little on the short side. I have a pretty long torso, so I never tried them on. Then I found this one and it was on sale so I tried it and so glad I did. I love the fit of it, and it looks so cute with jeans. It also looks really cute with leggings, you know it’s all about the leisure wear look and this is perfect with leggings.

Unfortunately this particular t shirt sold out but she has a ton of others that are just as cute…

large image view

How cute is this Rolling Stones Tee? Wouldn’t this look so cute under a Leather Jacket, these jeans and with these heels! You could totally wear it casual or dress it up.. That’s why I think I need it, I can wear it multiple different ways…

Main Image - Sub_Urban Riot Good Vibes Willow Sweatshirt

I love this Good Vibes Sweatshirt, is it so comfortable and the fit is great.  The fit is TTS, I purchased it in a medium.

Main Image - BRUNETTE the Label 'This Wine' Crewneck Sweatshirt

Now this sweatshirt I’ve had my eye for awhile, I haven’t purchased it yet because it comes with mixed reviews… But I’m pretty sure it will be in my closet before long… Can you really ever have enough crew neck sweatshirts? Probably not…

I know there’s a ton more out there but just thought I would share a few of them with you….

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed,

XOXO Nancy

Albuquerque Casual outfits

nancy's blog pic's 133nancy's blog pic's 135nancy's blog pic's 145

White denim shorts – Madewell, Belt – Linea Pelle, Gladiator Sandals – Steve Madden

This was probably one of my favorite out fits all summer!!! 

The shorts are so comfy and I think I’ve worn them a million times this summer. Now I just need to find a pair of white distressed jeans.

 I wish they still had the Tee in stock but unfortunately it’s out of stock! I purchased it at Nordstrom’s in the Savvy Dept, they have other cute Tee’s but just no this one. 

Once I figured out how to tie these gladiator sandals,  I was in love with them. I was going to return them cuz I couldn’t figure out how to tie them without them falling down. Well thank god I figured them out, you have to tie them low on your ankle. 

The belt is also another one of my favorites, I wear it with EVERYHING!!! I might have to buy it in brown!!

nancy's blog pic's 155

This outfit is old school.. I bought the Camo pants at Kohl’s for only $9 and I wear them all the time. I would say I’ve gotten my money’s worth for sure!

The Muscle Tee is Haute Hippe that I purchased last year, on sale of course.. I always try to buy everything on sale, makes it easier to justify all my purchases.. LOL

The booties are from Steve Madden, I fell in love with them when I saw them at Nordstrom’s. I shoulda bought them when I had the chance, I had to search hi and low for them, I finally found them on Amazon. They’re the only heels I can wear that don’t make me feet feel like they’re on fire, that’s what 25 years of retail will do for your feet. 

On the last night of Nationals everyone goes out to party… It’s always so nerve racking when you’re skating, that everyone’s always looking forward to the last night. Some people tend to have more fun than others, and I was definitely one of those people  this year. The next day sucked but well worth it, I had a good time!! 

Thanks for checking out my blog, hope you like it..

XO, Nancy

Gettin my sweat on in Albuquerque

Muscle Tee – Emi Jay, Capri’s – lulu lemon

Ok, I love this Muscle Tee, I saw Lisa Rinna wearing it on her blog and had to have it.  It’s says ” I told my Therapist about you”.  I linked the website it’s from but they’re not showing it on there. I’m sure once Lisa posted it, it sold out..

I’m really into T’s that have cute sayings on them, especially the Muscle Tee’s. Once the weather starts to change and you can wear more clothes, I love the look of a  Graphic T  under a blazer and a cute pair of booties. 

Of course the capri’s are one of my favorite, I own a few pairs of lulu lemon’s. They’re so flattering on, and so comfy…

nancy's blog pic's 153

Aren’t these the cutest pair of capri’s? They’re also from lulu lemon but I only found them in the store and not online. Our lulu lemon is pretty small, so when you see something you have to snag it right away or you’ll never find it again.

I had a couple more outfits that I wore, but I was so nervous to skate I forgot to take pictures of them.. Opsy! 

 Hope you like my looks!

XO, Nancy
