Kimono – Free People (more colors here) | Tank – Express (color is Soft Ivory, I’m wearing an XS) | Shorts – Blank NYC (old but similar here and here) | Bag – Staud | Sunglasses – Morgenthal Frederics | Shoes – Schutz | Necklace – Wanderlust + Co.

I feel like this outfit sums up my style during summer – hot outside so I need to wear a tank top and shorts, but freezing inside so I need to wear the kimono. A kimono may seem like a ridiculous summer piece, but I think it’s genius. It’s lightweight and breezy so it easy to wear outside and not feel like you are melting but long enough and covers the arms and and shoulders making it perfect for the air conditioning! Cute kimonos > frumpy old cardigans for braving the freezing cold indoors during the summer.
And now onto the most exciting part of this post – what I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this morning! I was up super early to shop it online and will be sharing everything I purchased in an upcoming video that will go up on Saturday. But for now, I thought I would give you a peek into the things I’m most excited about from the sale. Fingers crossed they fit and look good! LOL
1. Jeans, jeans and more jeans! I grabbed these raw hem ankle jeans, my favorite Free People jeans in another wash and even though I have never tried this brand before, I heard great things about them so I grabbed this high waisted pair.
2. The first item I put in my cart was THESE BOOTS! It’s hot as heck right now but I am excited for fall if only to wear these!
3. Yup, a leopard coat. This was a bit more of a splurge but looked like a classic piece.
4. I’m crazy for loungewear right now so these pants (in the star print) and sweatshirt are on their way to me now.
5. A basic striped tee – no brainer. 
6. These flat ankle boots seemed like a great option for dresses or jeans – the black were my first choice.
7. I fell in love with this wrap blouse in the catalog and had to have it immediately.
8. The sleeves and neckline of this sweater sold me. I picked it up in the emerald green color.
9. A new sports bra (though I already have this one and love it – it’s part of the sale) and workout leggings (I already have these in another color and they are the softest ever).
10. This sale is always great for picking up sneakers
11. Beauty wise – this Becca set was a must have for me, this brush kit looked promising, this face palette and this mirror set which I am the MOST excited about!

12. I almost forgot – these sunglasses!! Grab them ASAP – I have them in black and love them.

13. I am adding this later because I just noticed this striped sweater and couldn’t put it in my cart fast enough. LOL 

There are a few more things I grabbed and I will share them in my YouTube haul this Saturday. Stay tuned for tomorrow because I will be sharing the things not to miss from the sale! Many of these items I have already and noticed are marked down, beauty sets worth grabbing and some classic staples for fall.

Shop what’s in my cart:
