One of my favorite places to shop for entertaining and home decor is at Nordstrom.  Not only do I always find the cutest selection of throw pillows, but I love all the wall decor, and I never leave without finding a cheese board that I don't want to take home.  Today I'm rounding up my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for the home.  I mean, how cute are these wine glasses, and I never say no to a pretty candle, especially when it's on sale!  I am in love with this bar cart, and wishing I had someplace to put it in my house.  Not only do I need this monogram book stand, but it would make a perfect hostess gift, along with these mini tin candles, and I'm thinking that I need to do some early holiday shopping!   Have you bought anything from the Nordstrom Anniversary home sale yet?

Happy Sunday guys!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I know some of us are a little bummed because a lot of the items from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale have already been sold out, and not restocked (where is my blush sweater??).   However, I re-shopped the sale online last night, and there is still a lot of great stuff available!  I actually found things that I didn't see before, and lets just say my wallet isn't very happy with me.  I ended up buying these Spanx faux leather leggings, which I know I'll live in this winter.  They were a popular item last year, and I regretted not getting them.  Some sizes are back ordered, but but they'll ship the first week of August, so I highly recommend snatching them up while they're still in stock!  Also, the Blank NYC suede moto jacket, which is another must have, is still in stock in all sizes in the color spice.  The burgundy keeps coming in and out of stock, so keep checking back.   I'm so excited because two of my favorite jeans are included in the sale.  These black JBrand Maria jeans are my go-to for a high rise clean black jean.  I have been wearing them for years, and own them in multiple colors.  Also these black distressed Citizens of Humanity Rocket jeans are another that I wear constantly.  They have the perfect amount of distressing and a higher rise, which I love.  Also the Free People plaid tunic, which was a favorite of mine, is still available in the blue color, and I'm thinking I now need to add that to my closet.  I rounded up the rest of my sale picks below, and will keep you updated if any of my favorites that are sold out, become available again.

The One Sweater You Need From The NSALE + WW Link Up


*This post contains affiliate links.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love here on Threads for Thomas.

Yay, today is the day that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open for everyone!  What will you be buying?  If I had to choose my favorite item purchased from the sale (so far), it has to be this Leith cardigan.  The funny thing, this is actually one of the items that didn't come home with me after shopping the sale at my local Nordstrom.  If you read my fitting room diary post, then you know that I had major regrets about not purchasing this cardigan, so I ended up ordering it online that night.  Now, my only regret is not getting it in the blush color, which is currently sold out.  Trust me when I say that I have been stocking the Nordstrom site like a hawk, and if the blush comes back in stock, I'll be snagging it! It is also available in burgundy and grey, and although I don't need another grey sweater, I keep debating if I'll should get the burgundy too..... What do you think?

Even though I couldn't wait to rip off the tags from all my #NSALE finds, I'm nowhere near ready for summer to end, so my fall clothing can still hide in my closet for a while longer.  However, when it comes to cardigans, it's a different story.  I'm one of those people who are always cold, so cardigans are a staple in my summer wardrobe.  They are perfect for throwing on when the air conditioning is too cold (which is usually always), plus summer nights up at the lake can get pretty chilly, so I'm always wrapping myself up in  a cozy cardigan when we are hanging outside.  I love how this sweater instantly gives my denim shorts and camisole a cozy feel.  My camisole is also part of the Nordstrom sale, and these shorts are by far the best pair of denim shorts that I have ever owed.  Not only are they a higher rise (perfect for us mommies) but they look great with everything from bathing suits to blouses.

What are everyone's weekend plans, besides shopping?  I'm so excited because I'm hosting an event at one of my favorite Boston boutiques, Shake the Tree.  You may recognize the name because I have featured clothing from the boutique on blog before (here and here).  I will be at the store from 1-3pm this Saturday, talking about all things fashion and beauty.  As some of you know, I also sell the best lipstick ever, LipSense, and will have it with me!  So if you are local and have been wanting to try it, make sure to stop by.  I'd love to see everyone!








Cardigan: Leith| Shorts: Agolde| Camisole: BP.| Wedges: Steve Madden| Bag: Chanel| Sunnies: Chloé| Name Necklace: Sarah Chloe| Bracelets: Vita Fede (here and here)| Lips: LipSense

Date Night Look Wearing an Embroidered Skirt


*This post contains affiliate links.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love here on Threads for Thomas.

Date night.  Two words that aren't very common in my vocabulary.  My husband and I set a goal this summer to find a trusty babysitter, so we can go on monthly date nights, but so far that hasn't happened.  Since we don't eat dinner until after the twins go to bed, we make dinner our time, but it's not the same as getting out of the house and enjoying time between just the two of us.  When we do finally get our act together and go on our date night, this is the outfit that I will wear.  I recently got this embroidered skirt from Shein, and am obsessed!  Embroidery is such a big trend this summer, and this skirt is a fun way to to bring it into your wardrobe.   I paired it with my black BP. camisole, which is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Unfortunately, it is already sold out in all three colors, but I'm guessing that it will be restocked soon, so make sure you snag one when they come back (I'll keep you updated on the restock)!  I have been wearing mine nonstop, as it makes the perfect layering piece to any look.  I finished my date night outfit with my favorite lace-up block heels, which are under $33, then added a lightweight jacket, since I'm always cold in restaurants.  This jacket is from last year, but I've linked some similar options below.

The good news is that we're only half way through the summer, so we still have time to find a sitter and start our date nights.  Tell me, do you make time for date nights?  Also, I'd love to hear some fun date night ideas!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Dressing Room Diaries + Link Up


*This post contains affiliate links.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love here on Threads for Thomas.

Happy Friday!  Did anyone shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yesterday?  This is the first year that I was able to shop the sale in store, and on opening day.  As much as I love sitting on my couch and ordering online, it was fun to be able to try everything on.  There were a few things from my top picks list that weren't available at my local Nordstrom, so I'll probably be doing another online order soon!  I tried a bunch (okay probably half of the store) on, but I'm sharing the items that were my personal favorites, and practical for my everyday #momlife.

The outfit above was by far my favorite, and I know that I will be wearing these items on repeat this fall and winter.  This BP. Cardigan was a best seller last year, and I have no doubt that it will be a top seller again this year.  It's the perfect sweater to throw on over everything from jeans to dresses, and it come s in 6 colors.  You can't beat the (sale) price at $31.90.  This lace trim camisole was another favorite that I took home.  When I saw this camisole online, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, as it looked a little cheap, but when I tried it on, I fell in love. Not only does it drape perfectly, but it makes such a great layering piece.  It does come in green and ivory, and I'm thinking that I need all three colors.  Also, these jeans are amazing! They're by Articles of Society and I love distressing and raw hem.  I can't get over the fact that they're on sale for under $42!   Size tip: size down.  I wore my usual size 26, but had some room, so if they stretched out, I would have wanted the 25.


It's funny because these BP. Mules are probably my favorite purchase from the sale, yet I had no intention buying them, or even trying them on.  When I was in the shoe department, I walked by them several times and didn't give them a second thought.  It was on my third loop around the shoe department (hey, I wanted to make sure that I didn't miss a shoe!) that something made me grab them, and the rest is history.  They are SO comfortable, and I know I'll be pairing them with everything this fall.  They do run a little small, so I sized up a half size.  They also come in blush and silver, and are on sale for $52.90.


This Leith cardigan was the other sweater that I fell in love with.  Not only is it beyond cozy, but I love the way it drapes.  I actually didn't take it home with me, since I was already getting the BP. Cardigan, and had total regrets, so I ended up ordering it as I was writing this post! I feel like it looks and feels more expensive than it actually is, and know it will be a fall staple. It also comes in burgundy, grey, and blush, and I'm DYING for the blush color.  They didn't have in my local store, and the blush is sold out online (in my size) so I will be stocking the sale to see if it comes back in stock.

Sweater | Jeans | Mules   

How fun is this bell sleeve sweater!  I'm in love with the sleeves, as it makes the perfect statement piece.  I'll be pairing it with denim shorts this summer, then it will look great with leather pants in the fall.  The best part is that it makes a great alternative to the Lovers + Friends sweater that I've been eyeing.  They're so similar, yet this one is only a fifth of the price!  Size wise, it runs true to size. Because I like my sweaters to be a little boxy, I ended up getting the medium, although a small would have fit just fine.

Also, these AG legging jeans are amazing!  I have several pairs of the AG leggings, as they're one of my favorite jeans.  This wash is perfect for the fall, and I love the undone hem.  They run true to size and are $75 off the original price!


I'm a sucker for cold shoulders, so this Trouvé cold shoulder blouse caught my eye right away.  I'm especially loving the ruffle detailing on the sleeves.  It's available in black and burgundy, and runs slightly large.  It's perfect for a date night or drinks with the girls.


These leggings, guys, I'm obsessed!!  I know they were a hot ticket last year, and I'm so happy that I snagged a pair on sale this time around.  I love the higher rise, and the moto detailing makes them perfect for daytime wear, in addition to working out.  Although I love the green, I ended up getting them in black because I know that I'll wear the black a lot more.  They run true to size (I'm wearing a small), and are on sale for $49.90 (originally $75).


This stripe pocket tee is life!  It's so soft, and I love the way it drapes.  I know that it will be a staple in my wardrobe this fall whether wearing it on its own, or layered under a sweater or leather.  It come in 6 colors and is on sale for $18.90.


This cuff sleeve pullover sweater is the perfect item to throw on, and is under $50.  I love the boxy fit, and dropped hem sleeves.  It also come in burgundy and runs true to size.


Everyone needs a plaid in their fall wardrobe, and this Topshop plaid tunic makes a great option (please ignore the fact that it needs major steaming).  Not only am I in love with the colors, but the oversized fit, and longer hem, make it perfect for pairing with both jeans and leggings.  It does run big, so make sure to size down.

  
I also ordered these Vince Camuto booties online since they weren't available to my local Nordstrom, and can't wait to try them on.  There are several items from my top picks that weren't available in my local store, so I may be doing another round of shopping soon!
