Just finished up a whirlwind pit stop in Nordstrom with the girls in tow. Next stop – lunch and onto the Georgia Aquarium!
I had a mental list of items to grab but seeing things in person helped me repriorotize.
Since our fall and winter weather is limited I really tried to make smart buys that will stretch over a season instead of one-off items I’ll only wear a couple weeks when it’s cold at the beach.
Here’s what I took home:
Starting with this because it was my unexpected purchase and the one I have been most excited about. I had microneedling done for the first time a few weeks back and wow – what a difference it makes! Obviously the at home version is like any at home product, a stand-in between professional appointments, but this thing is the real deal. It helps prime skin for product application and collagen production which means hello youthful glow! The set is impressive and major savings over the non-sale price tag.
I typically wear some shade of pink lipstick – anywhere from light to deep. For fall, I like to venture a little into this deeper nude tone. It’s pretty, flattering on my skin tone and comes with a liner, lipstick and lip gloss.
Clearly these were popular because they sold out so fast! This season of life, I’ve been in flats mode so much (especially with my white summer slides) and I knew these would be a good buy for fall. The grey actually looks like has a hint of lilac, which I really like.
This pretty little tank has gone under the radar for the most part but is perfect for my taste. I love the sweet polka dots and soft pink shade, but the cut is not too fitted or too flowy. It’s just the right amount of relaxed to tuck into a skirt or jeans or wear untucked. It would look great under a blazer, cardigan or just worn alone.
Super soft and pretty in pink. I love this one
This might be harder to find since it’s become one of the cult sale items, but I love the texture of this tee. It’s not too thin and feels substantial without being bulky. Also comes in a pretty green!
Probably one of my favorite blouse cuts year after year. I bought the snakeskin print but also love the pinky purple color option too. The V neck isn’t too revealing and the material is not see through like a lot of these style blouses. This will be on repeat.
I didn’t plan on buying much activewear this year. (I actually still wear all the leggings and tops I bought last year during the NSale!) But this shade of blue caught my eye. I love the relaxed flowy fit and will be wearing this blue shade a lot. It also comes in soft pink and yellow.
I predicted a few items Emery would love and this one surprised both of us. She instantly gravitated toward these leopard pants and I know she’ll wear them a lot. They work with sandals and a blouse as well as sneakers and a tee for a more sporty look.
The glow in the dark feature was enough to win over my girls. Super cute unicorn print and it comes in both toddler and big girl sizes.
I mentioned this already a few times — and nothing against the Barefoot Dreams blanket — but my $26 throw is my favorite to snuggle with on the couch. I wash it often because it’s so well-loved and it still looks just as good today as it did when I bought it. If you’re a throw person, you know that’s not always true!
Part of my the reason I don’t go crazy for fall sales is because the styles don’t work well for warm weather and the colors don’t fit my aesthetic. I’m much more of a spring and summer color palette girl than fall and winter, BUT Treasure & Bond came through with this pretty blue pillow and I had to have it.
These were ultimately the items that made the cut, but I’d love to hear what your favorites are.
I also loved these and am considering adding them to my closet too.
