Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul (Part 1)

After I posted about my top picks, I promptly applied for the Nordstrom debit card and made 2 purchases, which just arrived today!! I was so excited to order, I accidentally ordered duplicate of some items, but everything else I loved and will be keeping!

Nordstrom’s was a bit wasteful with their packaging and shipped everything separately when it easily could have fit in one box. And the smallest box had only 3 beauty samples..


My only non-clothing buys were these 2 sets of Voluspa candles, and the Jack Black beard lube (shaving cream) for my husband. The sale could not have come at a better time as my husband is running out of this shave cream, and this bottle is huge and a great price. The candles are beautiful and smell amazing. Each set contains 3 candles which means I can give the entire set as a gift or easily split it up into multiple gifts. As you can see, one is already missing- I have been waiting for these so I immediately started burning it!


For clothing, I got the Zella Live-In leggings for everyday wear, travel and of course, bar class. They’re super comfortable, move with your body, and are not the slightest bit sheer. I also purchased two of the Nordstrom Lingerie Two-Way Seamless tanks to be worn under some sheer tops I own. Lastly, I purchased this Pleione Mixed Media V-Neck Tunic in the color Pink Hush. I love this because it’s long enough to cover my butt, and looks great tucked in all around or just in the front. I got the regular XS, but could probably have gotten the petite. In fact, I love this so much, and don’t have anything like it, that I’m considering getting a another color or two.

The last thing I got were these Cole Haan ZeroGround perforated oxfords in  the color Ironstone Suede. I love these because they are beautiful, but they have Nike soles which makes them super lightweight and comfortable. I think I’ll be able to wear these on trips that involve a lot of walking and my feet will feel great. I can’t decide if I should also get a dark color (debating between navy or black) since I have to wear closed toed shoes every day, or just have the one pair. What do you think?

What did you buy/are you planning on buying at the sale?
