I braved the mall with the baby this morning to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access for Nordstrom cardholders. As always, I look forward to this sale every year to find great Fall wardrobe staples. As a new mom with limited time, I couldn’t get too crazy this year and kept my shopping to a minimum. I focused on essential pieces that I knew I would get the most out of. Each item I purchased was under $100 including booties! I wished I had more time to browse but I went on Nordstrom.com when I got home and found some more items worth purchasing! Remember the sale is open to cardholders right now but will be open to everyone on July 19th. Unfortunately a lot of items are selling out already!
Here are the items I ended up purchasing this year – mostly basics that I know I’ll get good wear out of! I will also be posting videos on my Instagram Stories @LaceandLocks so you can see more of the outfits!
Again each piece is under $100 (and mainly under $50). I think I ended up spending under $450 (with tax) for everything which the husband was happy about :). And just for reference, I’m 5’0″ and wearing a size XS in the dress and the tops.
Most of my purchases were geared towards Fall but this lace midi dress is perfect for even know. I actually wore the burgundy version a few years ago in this post. The dress is on sale and comes a variety of colors including the burgundy and this orchid color I picked up here. For such a pretty dress to be under $60, I had to snag another color for myself. I’m wearing size XS and I don’t mind that it’s more ankle than midi length on my petite frame ;). I’d definitely wear it as a wedding guest to a summer wedding!

Here are more dresses and jumpsuits that I love from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I wish I had time to find them in the store and try them on!
Leopard is still trending this Fall and I picked up this cute and affordable leopard camisole that’s so easy to wear. I paired it with one of my favorite purchases which are these Topshop Straight Leg Cropped Jeans and they come in petite and regular length (woohoo!). I don’t own any pairs of straight leg jeans so I was excited for my first pair to be around $50 and in a versatile black color for Fall. And even more excited that I don’t have to hem them!
The least expensive item I purchased was this basic striped v-neck tee that comes in solid colors as well. It’s only $12 and super soft and flattering! My ivory/black combo is sold out online but I saw quite a few still available at my local Nordstrom (South Coast Plaza). The mules I am wearing here are not from Nordstrom but from Target and under $25! I wear them all the time!
Finishing up my purchases are some additional tops and of course Fall booties. As you can see, I love wrap tops or v-neck tops because they are flattering on petite gals. The wrap tops also come in handy for nursing!
I always find good deals on shoes during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and this year did not disappoint! I limited myself to shoes that were comfortable and ones I would really wear on a regular basis. These two booties really stood out to me and I’m a huge fan of Vince Camuto shoes because they are so stylish and comfy! Both are neutral colored so I know I would wear them often!
I’m on the go so much now as a working mom that comfort is key for me! There are so many good options this year though, especially with booties and all of these are under $100:
Lastly I had to include Jordan in this post! His carseat that we love – the Nuna Pipa Lite is ON SALE with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wish it was when we got it 3 months ago! We love this carseat because it is light at under 6lbs.
It does require a base for the car (which we don’t mind) and an adapter for our Uppababy stroller as seen here:
And there you have it! I may shop more online but it’s been hard to find time these days. I’m definitely happy with my purchases and glad I found some good deals with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year!
