Nordstrom Sale Under $250

This is the last post I’ll be doing about this year’s Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. This post is my favorite picks under $250. My whole mantra is “Affordable Fashion with Seasonal Splurges” so this post is where you’re gunna find my picks for 2017’s best splurges.

The seasonal aspect of this comes from the fact that I pick 3-5 items to really “splurge” on each season, and by splurge I mean spend anywhere over $100 on any ONE item.

When I select an item to splurge on I look at a few different aspects of the item:
1. Long Term Wearability – is this something that will last year after year in my closet?
2. Quality of the Item – aside from the wearability which is more about style, is this item durable, made from quality products, and something that will withstand the test of time.
3. Labels – I don’t get TOO into labels when it comes to my clothing, nothing HAS to be brand name in order for me to wear it, but with that being said, when I’m splurging on something I want it to come with a great label, that’s known for it’s quality and timeless styles, and one that’s been around for years with plenty of years to come.

So without further ado- here are my splurges from the Nordstrom sale. I did things a tad different this time and separated my favs by season, because these are the “seasonal splurges” I would select.

Summer: 

 

Fall

Winter

Spring:

And that’s all folks! I had a lot of fun writing this series, as sales are literally like my favorite thing ever. Let me know what you thought about it and if you’d like to see more posts like this! <3

Nordstrom Sale Picks Under $100

Last week I posted my favs from each category under $50 that are part of the amazing Nordstrom sale. Today I’ll share with you my favorite picks that are under $100 in each category. Keep in mind that in sharing these selections, you’ll see the heaviest amount of shoes, bags, and dresses.

I’m all about affordable fashion and I don’t really think a pair of pants or a top that is over $50 is a great deal, but you will see a few here and there, and that’s based on the designer. In other words, these are great deals because they are normally WELL above $200, not necessarily because they are the best sale price.

I want to start with dresses, because last week I forgot to include any dresses in the under $50 post, so here you’ll find all the dresses I love from the sale that are under $100 and some steals under $50 too!

 

I’m going to lump tops and bottoms into the same category this time since their lists were rather extensive in the under $50 post. Again, this is mainly on the designer aspect of the sale.

I’m going to have a good amount of picks here in shoes because while I don’t buy good shoes often, I’ve learned that investing a little money into a good pair of kicks is so much better than having a lot of cheap shoes. For starters: they last longer, they styles stay on trend throughout seasonal changes, and my more “expensive” shoes are actually the most comfortable ones to wear, so a good shoe under $100 I think is a great deal.

As far as accessories go, I don’t really care to spend over $50 for hats, scarfs, or costume jewelry. But finding a GOOD designer handbag under $100?! That’s a steal! Here’s some great bags, with amazing quality, all under a hundred bucks.

I’ll end this post with the shortest of the categories for Under $100. A combination of beauty, accessories, tech, and my favorite of all: Sunglasses!!!

Check back next week for my final post: the best designer deals under $250!

Nordstrom Sale Picks Under $50

It’s here everyone! The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is upon us, just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. I’ll be doing a 3 part series on the sale, dividing my favorite deals up by price points : Under $50, Under $100, and Under $250. In each post you can also expect to see the shopping experience divided into categories like tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes and accessories.

The Under $50 is probably going to be the biggest post on here for clothing, and I’ll focus more on shoes in Under $100, and great designer bags & accessories in Under $250. This is because that’s how I shop, honestly. I like to have affordable clothing, basics that last a long time, and there’s not much in my closet clothing wise that I’ve ever paid more than $50 for. I do opt for designer, but limit myself to a few nice bags a year and 1-3 pairs of new sunnies, so that I build a timeless collection.

This post is full of all my fav pieces under $50, so without further ado let’s start with TOPS:

There are so many great deals going on right now it’s hard to not just pick it all! haha Here are my selections under $50 for BOTTOMS:
