Happy Friday!  I’m reviving one of my favorite series today: My Favorite Five featuring Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Edition.  The sale has so many good things and I shared the Best of the Best with you yesterday.  I’m sharing my favorite 5 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items in 5 categories with you today.

Each of the collage photos below is clickable.  Meaning that if you click a photo in the collage it will take you to the item!

First category, Dresses, of course! (Click and Image on the Collage to Shop)

I love the menswear trend and this asymmetrical cut is so flattering.  I love all of the Eliza J Dresses in this post but this one is a true standout for me. I love a great detail so this is a big win!  Again an asymmetrical detail in a classic navy. Love this with a cardigan for every day or great earring and shoes for a night out.  The perfect travel dressThis suede beauty is one of my favorite colors and may just be coming to me!

Sweaters and Tops(Click and Image on the Collage to Shop)

This convertible sweater is genius and comes in several colors!  I’m always partial to cashmereCardigans like this are perfect for cool weather and travel.  Again a great detail and we always love this brand on sale!  This ruffle sweater would be great with black denim or these pants with a cool detail for a night out.

Denim (Click and Image on the Collage to Shop)

This style Paige denim are my most worn denim and a must have.  You can read all about them and how to distress your denim here.  Love the leather look of waxed denim.  I wear mine all the time!  Frame always has a great new detail hem.  This brand has LOTS of stretch so I typically size down. The Tuxedo stripe jean is a great and slimming trend.  Always love Veronica Beard denim especially on sale!  These will sell out!

Boots and Shoes(Click and Image on the Collage to Shop)

LOVE these!  Ordered them in tan and black.  These are gorgeous and I ordered them as well.  They look like a high-end designer I just couldn’t pull the trigger on even at resale!  These are so pretty and I grabbed them because I only have open toe casual booties and sometimes it’s just too cold.  This is a perfect heel because of the heel height, the ankle strap and stud detail.  This is such a pretty mule and would work with dresses and denim.

Coats and Jackets (Click and Image on the Collage to Shop)

Love this high-end designer look for under $100.  This is the perfect chic casual jacketLove the texture combo of this jacket.  This is a must for winter sports spectating and really cold days.  Everyone needs a classic trench!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
