Well, the most wonderful time of the year (for shopping) has arrived. Maybe it’s that I have felt so lost when it comes to dressing my pregnant body but I am more psyched than usual for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I woke up like a kid on Christmas and started making a list of things as soon as I opened my eyes this morning. I had my eye on a couple of things after receiving the catalogue a week or so back but I scrolled through the app as quickly as possible to see what else there was on offer.
Primarily, I wanted to pick up things that I could wear now and in a few months when I started maternity leave. I have no idea what the weather will be like or what state my body will be in but I am a sucker for neutral, comfortable pieces. I certainly have no business picking up sweaters but could not stop myself from adding a couple cardigan to my bag (like this one and this one). I am always cold and have a feeling as I wander around the house like a zombie with a newborn, nice oversized sweater cardigans would come in handy. What do I plan to wear with these sweaters, why, leggings of course!
I wasn’t big on accessories this time around but if I wasn’t distracted by all the other things I need to buy (for baby), I totally would have added either these sneakers or this hat to my bag. When I thought about what I would pick up during the sale, I thought I may finally get a Kate Spade but I found that when the time came, I couldn’t justify the price. I have carried my Madewell Transport Tote for a few years now and have never found anything better (sorry, not part of the sale but this similar-ish bag is).
Other things that I always look for during The Sale are basics – like this fun yellow tee and this basic white tee. I love a nice tuckable shirt but as I do’t think my high-waisted jeans will fit me again for a while, longer fits are necessary. Also, if you read my last post, you will know how I feel about the color yellow.
I have a couple more blog posts planned for the near future so if I can get my shiiiiiii together, those will be coming soon so stay tuned! Have a great weekend!
