Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale means looking ahead to fall trends, and one thing that’s a must-have this fall season is black skinny jeans, which is why I’m bring you this look today featuring this pair that I scored in the sale for just $42 (and good news – they’re still in stock in all sizes!)

I was a bit hesitant to try the black denim trend at first because it seemed a little too edgy for me, but when I tried them on, I knew it would be easy to give them a feminine feel. What I loved about this pair of black skinny jeans from the Nordstrom Sale (besides the amazing price!) was the destroyed/ripped detail of the denim and the easy fit. The rips aren’t the kind that will eventually actually rip all the way through. In fact, they really only show when you walk or bend your legs.

To style the jeans, I started with what’s easily my favorite tee I purchased in the Nordstrom Sale. This little high-low white t-shirt is the softest, coziest thing ever, comes in a naturally loose fit (this is an XS, for example!) and makes the half tuck trick a cinch! It’s perfect for wearing now with shorts and later with all your favorite skinnies like these black ones. It’s just $20 in the sale, come sin multiple colors, and is an absolutely must-have from the sale.

For accessories, I wanted to go for a fall look (even though it’s 100 degrees outside), so I started with these adorable little booties I got in the sale and this leopard scarf I also got in the sale (the leo scarf is sold out, but here’s a similar one in the sale). They’re already sold out in many sizes, but they come in other colors and I found some similar ones in the sale for you to shop below.

I finished the look with another amazing N Sale find – this grey carryall bag that’s just $35 in the sale and a statement necklace a la my favorite jewelry brand, BaubleBar. This is the perfect casual weekend look.

Happy Sunday! I normally don’t post on the weekends, but since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items are selling out so quickly, I had to share this look featuring some of my favorite Nordstrom Sale fitness finds like these amazing ombre leggings and these oh-so-comfy floral print Nike sneakers.

Fitness and workout gear have become essential not just for exercising but also for lounging. There’s nothing more comfy than a good pair of leggings or yoga pants and a soft tank, topped off with some easy-to-walk-in sneakers for a casual day of shopping or hanging out at the house. This look can easily be worn for one of those days or to a yoga class, which is why I love it!

One of the first things that caught my eye in the fitness category of the Nordstrom Sale were these gorgeous ombre leggings. I absolutely adored the color and the light sheen the fabric let off. They’re definitely cute enough to wear as a casual day look and to your favorite fitness class. This was my first time to try a piece from the fitness brand Alo and I absolutely loved the quality of the fabric! They’re currently marked down from $88 to $57 in the sale, available in every size (I’m wearing a size XS) and remember – prices go up on August 5th!

This little strappy tank wasn’t in the fitness category of the tank, but it could easily be worn for a workout class or paired with shorts for a casual weekend look. It’s marked down to only $19 in the sale, has a naturally oversized fit so you can easily tie it up like I did and is made from the softest fabric ever. Unfortunately, it’s sold out in this dusty pink hue, but it is available in several others and is a must-have from the sale in my opinion.

I finished off the look with what has become one of my fave Nsale purchases so far – these amazing icy blue Nike sneakers that are more comfortable than you could ever imagine. I absolutely love the feminine floral print the sneakers feature but I also love how lightweight they are. They’re also stretchy enough to take on an doff without having to untie and re-tie them (and that makes a difference when you’re on the go!)

BEST FINDS IN THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

SHOP THE POST

The day has finally come! At last, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open for everyone to shop online and in-stores. These deals are going away at mega-speed now, but the good news is, there’s still a lot of incredible items in-stock, so I’ve rounded up the very best finds in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I feel a bit like a broken record, but in case you haven’t been able to shop until today, I have to remind you why this sale is just too amazing to miss. Nordstrom releases brand new fall items from their most coveted brands at prices reduced up to 40% off. These prices will go back up to regular retail price on August 8th, so the time to shop is now! Last year I found some amazing deals, but I wished I would have ought more when the fall weather actually hit Texas and I had to buy the same coats, boots and sweaters that were in the sale for full-price. Yikes!

From essential, layerable dresses for under $45 and jackets, coats and vests under $100 to boots under $150 and booties under $100, I’ve found the must-have items that are certain to sell out and the very best deals so you can get the best bang for your buck.

Now I’m off to do a little extra #Nsale shopping myself. This icy blue Northface vest that’s majorly marked down as well as my favorite Voluspa candles (they come as a set of three!) and these light pink Ilvesta Leonard sunnies are currently in my cart. Oh and a few of my fave panties ever by Hanky Panky.

Stay tuned to my instagram and Snapchat (username = laurenvandiver) today for more updates on my latest and favorite purchases.

Today is the last day to shop the early access portion of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Remember, the public access starts first thing tomorrow, so set your alarms and bookmark your faves if you’ve been waiting for tomorrow’s big public access launch. The items are selling out very quickly, so today I’m sharing four different outfits I’ve created from my Nordstrom Sale purchases so far so you can get an idea of the many ways you can style these amazing deals for fall/winter and to also get an idea for how they look on-person.

I’m going to let you in on a few truths:

1. Fall/winter pieces are more expensive than those of spring/summer.

2. But there’s a bright side! You don’t have to buy quite as many pieces for the colder seasons, because of the endless layering opportunities!

3. Nonetheless, the boots, outerwear, handbags and jeans required of fall/winter can all add up quickly, which is why you should shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale now to make for a happier tomorrow. 😉

Now that you’re convinced that buying these amazing, must-have fall/winter items now while they’re marked down is a great idea, let’s talk about the four outfits I’m sharing today. I’ve broken each of them down for you to shop outfit by outfit below each set of photos above and I’ve rounded up all of my sale items I wore in the four outfits at the bottom of this post. Now I’ll let you in on the essentials I decided to buy in the sale and why.

The first (and my favorite!) thing I shop for in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is fall/winter shoes and boots. I scooped up more than eight pairs this year (don’t judge y’all – these deals are just too good!), and you can see four of them in action in the above outfits. A few that are on my must-list: over-the-knee boots, booties with a medium sized heel, riding boots and peep-toe booties. The sale also has amazing deals on flats and pumps for the season too. You can shop all of my fave shoes in the sale here.

Another thing I always buy in the sale is a couple of new handbags. This year I scooped up an amazing leopard crossbody bag for under $150, a carryall for just under $40 and I have my eye on this Tory Burch bag (SO gorgy!). As you can see in the four outfits above, I styled each of the bags twice. They are both bags that are certain to be carried lots! You can shop more of my fave bags in the sale here.

The next on my list is outerwear (stay tuned for some outfit boots featuring some of my fave finds in that category, but it was just too hot to shoot in a coat this week y’all). You simply won’t find gorgeous coats and jackets like the ones in this sale marked down this low until after Christmas. You can shop all of my fave outerwear in the sale here.

Other things that are always on my list for the Nsale are essentials like denim, sweater dresses, sweaters, cardigans and layerable must-haves like tanks and tees. Remember in this sale, brand new fall items from the most coveted brands are released averaging 40% off their regular price, and prices go up after the sale ends in a couple of weeks!

FLORAL MAXI DRESS

I had my eye on this dress months ago, but it sold out quickly, so when I saw that it was restocked I immediately had to have it. It’s not everyday that you find a dress like this one for under $45!

If you follow me on instagramthis floral maxi dress might look familiar. I wore it over the weekend to a nice dinner and night out on the town with Cole and some of his business clients. It was last minute plans (Cole’s really good at throwing those on me), so I was so thankful to have an easy maxi dress like this one to throw on before we headed out. What I love about this maxi is that it’s nice enough to dress up like I did over the weekend, but you can also easily pair it with flip flops and wear it to the beach. The flowy overlay of the top and the small v-cut make it so feminine and flattering for any body shape. For sizing references, I got an XS and it fit perfectly!

Another thing I love about maxi dresses like this one is that you don’t have to worry much about accessorizing. I simply paired a choker necklace and my go-to stud earrings and it was just enough sparkle to accent the gorgeous dress. I topped it off with my go-to nude strappy sandals and my new Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag and voila! The look was complete.

Side note on these amazing Dior So Real sunnies – they are my absolute dream sunglasses and they are currently marked down in the Nordstrom Sale, so if you love them as much as I do, snag a pair now!
