TODAY IS THE DAY. THE DAY THAT EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER (which is the case) can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Okay. I’m not going to beat around the bush and say “oh man, I can’t decide what items to get because I can’t get them all” because to be frank, I did in fact get everything you are seeing her. Before you go judging (hey, we all do, we’re human and God still loves us!), in my defense, I did a huge closet clean out and sold well more than what I actually spent. Which is why it took me a while to finally pull the trigger because I knew I had to sell, sell, sell and part with items to make room for new! And, now that I feel I am fully stocked up for Fall & Winter, I plan to go on a no-shopping stint for the next few months. So, if you see me talking about sales, new items, and the “oh I must have this” stuff, give me grief and remind me of this blog post! Hey, if it’s writing then I have to stick to it 🙂
Okay, so moving past the first stages of grief, I am now blissfully in acceptance because you guys, I am ready for Fall, ya’ll! I kept adding and removing things from my shopping cart, which helps me really think about what I truly want, and these are the pieces that I kept coming back to over and over. I’m all about the black, earth neutrals, and soft tones, as of late, which you can clearly see from the picture above, but you know I have my punchy, bright and colorful accessories that I will add to my looks to make it Sabby!
Are you having trouble deciding what to get? Well I can relate, so let me share what I kept in mind while making my purchases. 1.) Fit, Fit, Fit. I know what does, and doesn’t, look good on my body type. So while I see so many fab blogging friends rocking some fierce things, I have to stop myself from getting it for myself because I know that it just won’t flatter my body. Like boyfriend jeans for example. It must be my petite frame and larger chest that makes these suppose-to-be laid back, cool girl jeans, I just look like I am wearing my man’s baggy jeans! Which is why I went with the olive, stretchy denim with mild rips & tears that are a medium rise. These kinds of jeans flatter and that I cannot say no to! 2.) Tops that can be dressed up and down. Thankfully I am in a line of work that does not require super corporate attire, so I look for pieces that I can wear to the office and on date-night. I love to wear things over and over (as we should) so I have to be sure I can come up with at least 5 ways to wear it before I even buy it! And 3.) Do I need another bag? Purses are one of my weaknesses which is why I spent three weeks debating on this pink/taupe, reversible, tote! Not because of the price tag (which is under $50 btw!), but because I know I don’t need just another bag. But a tote, that I do need. And it will blend perfectly with the soft blush and neutral tones I am loving right now. And it will hold all my shit! Hey, real talk here 🙂
