We’ve said it over and over and we’ll say it again: SHOP THE SALES. Doing so is the best way to get quality items you want and need without feeling guilty about the cost. Nordstrom, one of our favorite stores (for their stellar customer service, incredible return policy, free shipping both ways on online orders and, of course, their on-point fashion), is having their Anniversary Sale starting TODAY. Don’t. Miss. It. In fact, shop early (like now) because great pieces at such great prices will sell out quickly.
We got a sneak peek at the sale and found some fantastic items that will work with a mom’s tight budget, busy schedule and ever-evolving figure. And you don’t even have to leave the house! Remember that Nordstrom ships for free BOTH ways so you have nothing to lose. If you don’t like something it’s super easy to ship it back with the pre-printed label included with your purchase.
Now, let’s shop!
BP. Plaid Cotton Shirt (now $24.90/reg. $38): Why? Because moms need a bevy of basic yet stylish tops they can throw on at a moment’ s notice. You’ll look cute and feel comfortable. Plus, it can take you from work to play, and the unique color will make you stand out from the crowd (but not in an obnoxious way, in a stylish way).
Halogen Bouclé Knit Jacket (now $45.90/reg. $69): Why? A casual moto-style jacket will turn any plain ‘ol outfit into a chic ensemble. Stay warm at the kids’ games or going out for ice cream after dinner.
Trouvé Colorblock Moto Sweater (now $59.90, reg. $88): Why? The details on the sleeves keep this from being your standard run of the mill top. But it’s as comfy as an old sweatshirt.
1.State Pleated Lace Midi Skirt (now $64.90/reg. $98): Why? Midi skirts are in. Lace is in. Black is always in. Wear it dressy with heels and a blouse or casual with ballet flats and a white tee.
Enzo Angiolini ‘Eero’ Leather Boot (now $134.90/reg. $199.95): Why? Because you will wear the hell out of it, it’s super cute, it can work with just about any colors, dress it up or dress it down. Plus, the flat heel will allow you to stand comfortably on the sidelines, in the school yard, or at the fair. Remember, knee-high boots can be expensive so to get them on sale is definitely a smart move.
BP. Print Tassel Trim Poncho (now $24.90/reg. $38): Why? The chevron pattern adds fun to your outfit while the style is contemporary. You’ll look effortlessly chic.
Natori ‘Element’ Full Fit Contour Underwire Bra (now $43.90/reg. $66-$68): Why? Because you know you need new bras. Because these are smooth they can be worn under any kind of top without showing lines or patterns (a HUGE no-no). If these don’t work for you Nordstrom has many others on sale so be sure to take a look.
Biala ‘Alyssa’ Lace-Up Wedge Boot (now $79.90/reg. $119.95): Why? Because it’s never too early to shop for fall, especially when you can get a cute, functional quality boot for $40 off! The wedge will provide stability, comfort, and style.
BP. High Waist Seamed Moto Leggings (now $24.90/reg. $38): Why? These can work for the office or the playground. The details make them much cooler and more expensive looking than regular leggings.
