Five Friday Favorites #29

This week's Five Friday Favorites have NOTHING  to do with the Anniversary Sale.  Here's what I'm loving this week -

#1 - Free People Adds to Nordstrom Rack
Many of my favorite Free People finds from this season have been moved over to Nordstrom Rack and really good prices.  My top five favorites (and same with you guys based on your shopping) are - smocked dress (as seen above), embroidered dress, lace tank (as seen above), henley tee and ombre henley.  All great finds...just wish I had got them at these prices. 

#2 - Target Find - Babydoll Dress
Target is having 20% off dresses with code DRESS20. Highly recommend taking advantage of this sale and snag this super cute Who What Wear dress. LOVE the babydoll style with the ruffle sleeves. And the white trim detail is perfection. So cute!! True to size. 

I am obsessed with this Ulani ring...comes with two stackable rings and they are just FABULOUS! Fits true to size. I am going to be wearing these ALL.THE.TIME now. Highly recommend. 

 #4 - Target Lemon Pajamas
I LOVE pajamas...and I LOVE very affordable pajamas even more. How cute are these Target ones. Soft material. Very comfortable. And they are $20!! I sized up for a looser fit. Pack these with me this weekend at my parents.  

#5 - Deanna Cuff 
This leather Stella and Dot cuff is so amazing.  Mix of edge and chic.  It's adjustable with three different sizes so it fits small wrists like mine.  Light weight...you don't even feel like you are wearing one.  Highly recommend.

Caslon Tee 
Are you looking for a cute basic tee...then this Caslon tee from the Nordstrom sale is perfect and has a lot of sizes available. Comes in all sorts of colors, stripes and one print available. Runs a little big so consider sizing down. I'm wearing an XS but definitely could have done an XXS. Get this look - tee, jeans, and shoes

Please ignore Hubs and Little Mini in this picture...didn't realize they were behind me watering the flowers. On to this fabulous Halogen sweater. I just LOVE the ruffle detail. The reason I picked up this sweater though is because they sleeves are supposed to detach...well neither me or my Hubby could figure out how to do it. I was in a rush to get the picture taken but I'm definitely going to try again. Get this look - sweater and jeans.

This BP twist sweater was a complete miss for me and I'm super bummed about it because I really was excited for it to arrive.  The whole twist in the front, right in the belly section just looked awful on me.  I've seen it on others and it looked great which is why I picked it up last minute.  Lots of you must like it too because it keeps going in and out of stock.  

On the jeans front though...the ones in both pictures above are a fabulous new find from this sale.  Wit & Wisdom Skinny Jeans are perfection.  The petite length fits me perfectly.  Love the dark wash.  These will definitely be a staple this fall/winter.  Highly recommend for you shorties (any height really)...and they are $44 right now with the sale!!!  


Nike Thea Sneakers 
LOVING these Nike Thea running shoes I picked up from the Anniversary Sale. They keep going in and out of stock at Nordstrom but I found two other places where you can pick them up (unfortunately not the sale price). True to size. Super comfortable. These will go with anything in my athleisurewear collection. Check out purchasing options - Nordstrom, Bluefly and Amazon

Nike No Show Socks
I'm a big fan of Nike's "no show" socks with my booties. They are very comfortable and don't show. I use the Nordstrom Sale to stock up on them. The three pack of mixed colors is sold out but they are available in white and black three packs. Highly recommend!

I love a pump with a thicker heel. Not just because they are super comfortable but that paired with a round toe is a chic look. These Louise et Cie fit the bill. Super comfortable. I was a little unsure of the wider bottom part of the heel but after trying them on they work. Come in a few colors. These are the nude but they definitely have blush undertones. True to size. And the dress I'm wearing is on sale and you can snag it here.  


Sparkly Uggs
How cute is Little Mini in these sparkly Uggs I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. She rarely gets anything new since she's got a big sister so these were a special treat. True to size. Oh and her tutu dress which she's obsessed with and has in a bunch of colors thanks to her grandma is now on clearance at under $10. Stock up for next year! Get her look - dress and shoes.

Mini Melissa Shoes
Big fan of Mini Melissa shoes for my minis...especially little mini. I picked up these adorable pink sparkly ones for little mini for next year. They are pricey shoes so when I can find them on sale I snag them. They are super cute and I highly recommend. I find this brand runs small so I usually order up a size.

Five Friday Favorites #28

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opening to the public today I felt like I HAD to focus today's Five Friday Favorites on my five favorite purchases so far.  And if you missed last week, I highlighted my five longtime favorites that are available at the sale this year.  Check that out here.

#1 - BB Dakota Faux Leather Jacket
LOVE, LOVE this BB Dakota Faux leather jacket.  The quality is AMAZING for faux leather...looks real very real.  This is the perfect color...best blend of gray and beige!  It also comes in black.  True to size.  

#2 - 1901 Varsity Dress 

1901 Varsity dress. Great shift style, soft cotton and very flattering. Dress it up or down. I'm wearing an XSP but it was kind of short so I might get the XS just to see length difference. Get this look - dress and shoes.

#3 - Vince Camuto Booties
 Vince Camuto can do know wrong when it comes to booties.  I may have gotten three pairs last year and told myself I wasn't going to get another pair until I laid my eyes on these and I had to have them.  Love the color and the fit.  They will be a staple this fall/winter for sure.  True to size and other colors available.  PS - If the Free People shirt I'm wearing would have been a little smaller (def size down if you get it) then it would have made this list too. 

#4 - Caslon Sweater
 LOVE this Caslon sweater. Has a big turtleneck which I love, nice long length and I really like the speckle fabric. Highly recommend. True to size, wearing an XS. Comes in a bunch of colors and it's under $50!  Get this look - sweaterjeansboots

#5 - Vince Camuto Blouse
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Vince Camuto blouse.  Technically I didn't buy it in the store BUT immediately regretted it after I got home so I bought it yesterday.  Everything about this is perfection...gathered sleeves, ruched neck and I'm OBSESSED with the color.  Love the modern take on a Victorian look.  Will be perfect for work or a night out.  Lots of other colors to pick from.  True to size but if you are on the shorter side, you might want to consider petite (that's what I'm wearing).

Just in time for the Anniversary Sale to be open to EVERYONE I got my first online order reviews up.  Seperated everything by category to make it easier. 

I LOVE gingham and Madewell and this dress is the perfect combo! Love the ruffle hem and sleeves. It's nice and lightweight. Great for work or play. True to size. Get this look - dress and shoes

Love this dress from 1901. It's like a sweatshirt material...SO SOFT! Love the built in shirt detail. Another one you can dress up for work or dress down for the weekend. Definitely a keeper. True to size. Get this look - dress and shoes.

Another fan dress from 1901...1901 Varsity dress. Great shift style, soft cotton and very flattering. Dress it up or down. I'm wearing an XSP but it was kind of short so I might get the XS just to see length difference. Get this look - dress and shoes.

I was hoping this Treasure and Bond dress would work out as a fab holiday dress but it's just EH. I love the pleating detail and the hunter green color is great just overall the fit didn't do much for me. It does fit true to size. Details on this look - dress and shoes

This BP balloon sleeve was my least favorite of the sweaters that came in the mail from this package. I accidentally ordered an XXS instead of an XS. They are going for more of a slouchy look and I think one size bigger would have worked. Love both the pinky/red and green colors. Get this full look...and double check to make sure your size is correct - sweater, jeans, and shoes

You know an outfit is a keeper when Hubby says...oh you look good. That's what he said as I was sweaty my you know what off in this look. LOVE this Caslon sweater. Has a big turtleneck which I love, nice long length and I really like the speckle fabric. Highly recommend. True to size, wearing an XS. Comes in a bunch of colors and it's under $50!  Get this look - sweater, jeans, boots

Another Caslon sweater win. Same speckled look...this time I opted for the cream color (with black and navy specs throughout). I like the slouchy look of this one. I forgot to snap a picture of the back with the exposed zipper because well I was about to pass out from heat exhaustion taking the picture. True to size. Lots of colors available and it's under $40! Get this look - sweater, jeans, booties.  

Gibson always knocks it out of the part with their blouses and prints and this one doesn't disappoint. Love the high low hemline and flat collar v-neck detail. True to size. This is by far my favorite print. There are others available along with some solid options. Get this look - top, jeans and shoes.

I LOVE this Free People tunic...the print is so pretty and the redish pink just pops. My only issue is that it's a little too big on me so definitely size down if you order. Also comes in two other colors but this one is my favorite. Get this look - tunic, jeans (similar) and booties.

Super cute Halogen bubble sleeve sweater.  VERY versatile...you can dress it down with jeans or dress it up for work with a cute pair of dress pants.  Wear with flats or heels.  True to size.  Takes a basic sweater (like the J.Crew Tippi) and takes it up a notch with the subtle bubble sleeve.  Highly recommend.  The gray was a little sheer for me so I put my go-to Halogen tank under it.  Get this look - sweater, tank. jeans (similar), shoes

I'm always looking for fun new flats and these Cole Haan ones peeked my interest. I don't like snakes but I do like a snake print. These have blush tone which I like. They are SUPER comfortable. True to size. Also come in several solid colors. What do you think, should I keep? Get the look - sweater, jeans (similar) and shoes
I'm looking for a different pair of black flats instead of always wearing my Tory Burch minis. I thought these Vince ones would be super cute. Funky but still work appropriate. Nope, they didn't work. As my friend said, they look like witch shoes. I was sooo bummed. Anyone else try them. What did you think. True to size. Other colors available...maybe it's the black that doesn't work.

I've been wanting a short winter jacket. I have two long ones that I love but needed a more sporty, short one so I picked up this Patagonia one and I love it. It's thin but still says will keep you warm (I was sweating taking these pictures). The gray color will go with everything. I went with a small so that when I'm wearing big sweaters it won't be too tight. Really like it. It keeps going in and out of stock so keep checking back. Not the greatest of pics either...needed big Mini to take it and she just couldn't get the angle right.

Found Big Mini's Thanksgiving dress thanks to this sale. How cute is this Pippa and Julie dress. I'm very tempted to get one for little Mini too so they can match. Outfit works well with her new boots too. Get this look - dress and shoes.

I'm breaking up this MAJOR try on session into categories to make it easier to navigate.  I'll link to the other Dressing Room Diary posts from the #nsale at the bottom.  Apologies for the pictures...the lightning wasn't very good.

Last of my in-store Dressing Room Diaries...shoes.  Last year I got three pairs of booties and a pair of flats so I didn't NEED any shoes but of course I had to try some on.

Lucky Brand Wedge Booties
These Lucky Brand wedge booties are sooo cute and so comfortable.  I love the style with the peek-a-boo ankle/foot cleveage.  Comes in a bunch of colors.   True to size.  Super cute and under $100!!  Definitely recommend.  I'm trying to figure out how to justify a pair of these.  I don't have any wedges...only flats and heels.  ;)

Vince Pevista Booties
I know I said I bought a bunch of booties last year and didn't NEED any this year well I did end up coming home with these Vince Camuto ones because they are sooo cute AND I don't have a pair in this neutral color that's flat.  These are AMAZING.  Will go with anything.  Very comfortable and true to size.  If you are in need of booties then I highly recommend these!
