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!
Great pictures. Thank you for the sale information. You look really great and the the baby is so cute!
Great picks! Love the leopard cami and polka dot blouse. Perfect for Fall and beyond that’s for sure. BTW, your little man is so cute!
