Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 – My Picks

Wearing Anine Bing graphic tee and jeans highlighted in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020, OOTD, Outfit

It’s been awhile since I last posted, but honestly it feels like just a few days… How are we already in August?!  Not only are we already in August, but it’s also time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020.  The last few months I’ve been really careful about not over-spending and have been “rediscovering” items already in my closet.  Nevertheless, I couldn’t pass checking in on this sale as the deep discounts are on current merchandise which will go back to regular prices after the sale.

This sale occurs annually, and it’s always been a great resource for me in the past to get those items that I’ve been eyeing as well as update my closet with wardrobe essentials.  The sale is currently for Nordstrom cardholders only, but will open to the public (non-cardholders) on August 19th.  If you dont have or want a Nordstrom card, you can still preview the sale here and save your wishlist items until the 19th when the sale goes public.  From past experience, I find that many of the items sell out fast, but Nordstrom often will add new items or replenish inventory throughout the sale, so check back if you really want it!  The sale ends on August 30th and prices return to their regular prices on the 31st.

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks

 

This white lace trim cami is not included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it’s on sale now on their site for $24.90.  If you don’t already have it, I highly recommend this one.  It’s so versatile with many different outfit looks.  For example, looks great casually with jeans or dressed up under a blazer, and perfect in the summer heat. I wear my white cami all the time and for less than $25, this is a must-buy!

I’ve been wearing graphic tees on repeat and this one is my current fave.  The jeans are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (see above).  Lately, I’ve been obsessed with ankle bracelets.  Love this one for it’s style and that the chain is thick (I always break the delicate chains!).  My silver pumps are Jimmy Choos.  Bought them years ago and couldn’t find the exact ones, but here are similar looking ones at a much lower price and on sale now as well!

 

Until next time…stay well!

It’s Time for Real, Positive Change

Showing 'Your Sphere of Influence' by Danielle Coke of @ohhappydani . It's time to create real, positive change.

I had a few blog posts planned for early this month, but like many of you, I needed to take a pause.  The increasingly publicized and irrefutable stories of racial injustice particularly towards the Black Community was, and is, so heartbreaking.  As a minority, I have always been strongly aware and sensitive to racism that exists in our society, mostly because I experienced or witnessed it.  In light of recent events, I am even more shocked, disheartened, and frustrated by the disparity of racial injustice that continues to negatively impact the Black Community.

Jeans, Tops & Comfy Clothes to Wear Now & Later

Wearing Agolde Jeans and Madewell T-Shirt in NYC / Jeans, Tops and Comfy Clothes to Wear Now

So, what have you been wearing lately? At the onset of the “stay-at-home” order in New York, I dressed mostly in athleisure. Aside from being more comfortable, I thought that I’d be more inclined to exercise while stuck at home if I dressed for it, or at least that’s what I told myself… Well, the reality is that it didn’t make me exercise more and, in fact, made me feel less motivated overall.  So now I am back to dressing a little more like I did before. Previously, due to my lifestyle and profession in a more creative field, I didn’t often dress formally or with a corporate style but I did always try to look put together (mostly with jeans, my wardrobe must-have). I only wore workout clothes if I actually had a workout. 🙂 As with anything though, it’s about balance, so here are some fave jeans, cute tops for those video chats, and comfy clothes to get through life now as well as later.

Best Hand and Body Lotions to Moisturize

Emergin C Hand and Body Lotions to Moisturize

Hi everyone! Hope you are well and staying healthy. I live in New York and my kids’ schools closed due to the COVID-19 virus almost 3 weeks ago, so we’ve had a little extra time to settle into our ‘stay-at-home’ routine. Even still, it’s a bizarre new reality that I sometimes forget when I wake up in the morning. Fortunately, we’ve been relatively healthy (knock on wood), so can’t complain. In fact, this ‘pause’ on life is exactly what I needed. Continue Reading →
