Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What's Still In Stock

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What's Still In Stock

Over the past weekend, I once again visited my local Nordstrom to go seek out some more finds from the sale. What I took from my trip there is - SO many things are out of stock!! I feel like this year things are flying on the shelves waaaaay quicker than usual! At my local Nordstrom, there were barely any of my sizes left! 

I've had some people mention to me that they still hadn't had a moment to shop the sale and that a lot of the things they had there eye on at first are now gone, so I decided to personally go through the sale items again and pick out some of my favorites that are STILL IN STOCK yay! Hopefully these updated pieces will help you guys find some things you'll love and wanna snag while they are still discounted! See my current picks below :) You can also view all of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale related posts HERE, where I have done a bunch of fun posts with finds from the sale! Happy sale seeking!

Shoe Crushes From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cheers to day one of PUBLIC ACCESS for the #NSale!! I haven't yet talked 'shoes' from the sale, and I know for a lot of people finding cute booties, sneakers, etc. is gonna be on their radar, so what better day to share my in-store favorites than on day one of public access?! Β 

On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of attending a cocktail hour with the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom PR team and whole lot of boss babes! I also got another chance to go through the sale items and since I had already done my dressing room diaries earlier on, my focus was drawn to the shoe department!! I'd say the shoe trends are loud and clear for fall this year - booties, slides + mules, and sneakers. Below I'll go through my picks and favorite shoe finds!! (Plus give you a few styling tips!!) Β

I wanted to start off with these beauties because the detailing is absolutely GORG! It is a bootie with an open toe - really allowing you to wear them fall, spring, & summer!  (Comes in other colors as well). I would style these either with some cuffed denim, or a cute dress! You honestly could style with anything though, a look with denim shorts would be super cute too!!

Okay I LOVED the low cut of these! I feel like the style of them is really unique for a pair of booties. Like the last pair, I feel like these could be styled with anything!! The closed toe also allows them to be worn through the colder months as well. (More colors available!)

Shoes like these with the peekaboo sides have been a huge trend lately! These would be cute with a dress or with your jeans! I have some flats that have open sides like this and get compliments on them every time I wear them!! You can see them in my dressing room Diaries post :) These also come in tons of other colors too.

I am a sneaker girl so you will be seeing lots of sneaker styles on this post! I love the color & material of these. I feel like they could so easily be dressed up or dressed down. I wear my pink sneakers with everything and they are always a cute, casual statement!

IMG_5280.JPG

I thought these were sooo cute!! They could obviously be worn with your "running errands" attire like your workout clothing but would also be super cute with a pair of denim and a sweater.  

IMG_5281.JPG

I think these (along with the gray ones below) are going to be SO popular during this sale!! They are such a statement and can be work with denim, dresses, rompers - whatever you like!! 

IMG_5282.JPG

I have a pair very similar to these from last year and they were my FAVES all year long!! They will dress up & add style to any outfit you pair them with! Even on your lazy days with just your jeans and a flannel, they will jazz your look up! 

IMG_5283.JPG

I love these booties because they are a simple black bootie that could be paired with anything, but will always stand out a little more because of the zipper detailing! These would be a great addition to your wardrobe because you would really get SO much use out of them!! 

IMG_5285.JPG

I love love LOVE these!! I am a huge fan of the mules I own, but mine are slightly more casual and I love the dressy vibe the heel gives these!! They are also KILLER priced - like $50!! Such a steal and a shoe you will wear again and again. 

IMG_5286.JPG

Here is the same shoe as the one above only gray! I also think this shoe is going to be extremely popular & the gray tone makes it so versatile! Pair them with denim, skirts, dresses, jumpsuits, rompers - you name it.

IMG_5287.JPG

Slides have been a huge trend the past 6 months and aren't going away. These ones come in three different colors and are killer priced!! My favorite look with mules is definitely paired with some denim and really any top! 

IMG_5288.JPG

These Nikes are GORGOUS! I cannot believe they are part of the sale!! Seriously these would be perfect to add your athleisure wardrobe and would match EVERYTHING!  

IMG_5290.JPG

These are the perfect versatile sneaker to add to your wardrobe. The color and style will match anything, and they could easily be worn more sporty, or a little more dressy with a sweater or casual dress! They also come in white and I am hoping they restock them so be on the lookout!! 

IMG_5291.JPG

Another amazing athletic sneaker that I cannot believe is marked down! This sale is a PERFECT time to invest in new workout shoes and these are too cute.  

IMG_5292.JPG

Okay, no lie - these might be my favorite sneakers from the sale!! I think they are so unique, cute, and your new statement sneaker! They also come in white! 

IMG_5293.JPG

Last are these Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. These are the perfect investment for you ladies that love pairing sneakers with your everyday looks! They will match everything and are not your typical Stan Smith shoe. I've seen these styled all over Instagram and the styling options are endless!!

Shop: Couch | Throw Blanket | Rug | Faux Palm | My Denim (part of NSale!) | My top (will be available soon on my store) | Throw Pillows

About a month ago, Al and I updated our couch throw pillows to these adorable Maewoven ones and we COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!! No joke, I want two more for my couch and to also cover my entire bed in them!! I've been crushing on their pillows for a long time so to get them in my house was the best feeling. I feel like they pull the entire room together. 

Maewoven's square pillows come in either 16x16 inches or 20x20 inches and we went for the 20x20 so a little larger than your typical square pillows. (I'm happy we went with the larger size!!) They also maintain their shape SO WELL! Which is something that is always hard for me to find in a pillow - but a necessity with how we lay on the couch and the way Leo lays all over everything. Their pillows are the African mudcloth material which is definitely a huge trend right now!! Throw pillows make such a statement in your living or bed room so they are worth the investment, and their pillows are all right around $50 which is a steal! They are constantly putting new styles out so their site is definitely one to check back to anytime you are looking to spice up your collection because you will always find something new. 

Below you can see + shop my current faves!! You can shop the rest of 'our home' HERE

Tonight I am off to an event at Nordstrom downtown that I am so excited about! Make sure to follow along on my Instagram stories to see what we are up to!! And don't miss my Nordstrom Sale posts HERE that I am adding to almost daily!! Happy Wednesday!!

8 Ways I Motivate Myself To Be Fit And Healthy
8 Ways I Motivate Myself To Be Fit And Healthy

Mama always told me to start a good fitness routine at a young age - why? Because it becomes part of your daily lifestyle and makes staying in shape and healthy that much easier!!  Growing up, I always had a killer metabolism and was either dancing your cheerleading so I didn't worry much about my eating habits or working out outside of practice. Once college years hit, I did notice a difference in my body. I couldn't necessarily eat whatever I wanted without feeling bloated and tired & all of a sudden I had to actually make time to workout because I didn't have sports fulfilling that exercise routine anymore. Self motivation is pretty challenging, but over the past four years I have definitely found some tips that seem to work well for me. 

Β 

1. Use the buddy system!! This is probably my biggest motivating factor - finding people in your life to keep you accountable by either eating healthy with you or working out with you!  I started Orange Theory Fitness last September and this is the first type of workout that I have actually been able to stick at doing and still love. The biggest reason behind it being I have friends and family that also workout there and will plan classes with me throughout the week. I also love finding walk / running buddies!! Having a go-to person to go on a long walk or run with is a lifesaver because those types of cardio can be boring by yourself but really fun if you have company. When it comes to eating, either having someone to meal prep with or even just that person that you send yummy healthy recipes you've tried back and forth can help you stay motivated and accountable on your eating.

2. Utilize pinterest! Pinterest is amazing for inspo in so many categories, but a huge one being health and fitness. You can find endless recipes, at home workouts, fitness blogs to follow, cute workout apparel (that motivates me, anyone else?!), etc. If I spend a solid 10 minutes scrolling through fitness and health pins and saving them to my boards, I get a nice kick of inspiration that makes me want to get better. You can follow my "be healthy" board HERE, and my 'yumm.' board HERE

3. Start setting goals for how much water to drink per day. The golden rule of drinking water is to drink half your body weight in ounces. For example, I weigh 125 so my daily goal is to drink at least 63 ounces of water per day. 

4. Get on a schedule. It helps me to decide which days of the week I will for sure make sure I get a workout in. Whether it's attending a class, walking/running, or doing a little at home workout, make sure you do those days. I would say to set 3 days that are absolute for sures, then try to add a random additional day or two into your week depending on your schedule. Don't set yourself up for failure by choosing your set days to be Saturdays if you usually go out Friday nights or make plans on Saturdays. Choose days that you know you will be able to squeeze it in. 

5. Find a class. As I'm sure most of you know, classes are what motivate me the most. What I love about classes are you really can't just stop when you get tired like you would just working out by yourself at the gym, you gotta push through the whole thing!! There is also always a little bitty piece of competitiveness in you that comes out in a class setting as well, you really push yourself. My current favorite classes are Orange Theory Fitness and Soul Cycle. See 'what your 60 minutes at Orange Theory looks like' if you are curious! 

6. Find balance. I am the type of person where if I push myself too hard, I'll either splurge hardcore or hate my life. With eating, I try to make sure I eat at least 80% healthy all the time. The additional 20% is my cheats, drinks, desserts, etc. I am definitely someone who needs those!

7. Take progress photos! It takes TIME to see results. You see yourself every single day in the mirror so you don't tend to notice the little things or little victories - but they are happening. Taking photos once a week can help you see those which is so motivating!! 

8. Don't compare yourself. Fitness is hard work - yes. But what doesn't get talked about as much is how much it is genetics as well. I could get stick skinny but still have wider set hip bones and still never look like all the bikini models but that is okay!!! My body is my body and it is not naturally built like the girls I tend to compare myself to. And same with everyone else. The comparison game is so evil and it causes you to believe things that are untrue. Love yourself and work on being healthy and happy in your own skin!! 

Β 

Being healthy and fit is a journey but it's a fun one!! And something that you bring into your future by making it a part of your now. Since I know there are probably a few of you hoping this workout look was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I did put some of my athletic picks from the sale below for you!!
