Weekend: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prep: Insider Ideas & How To Store

Hey, gang! This weekend submit will likely be quick & candy. We’ve been laser-focused on the NSale this week and I nonetheless have my True Gems article to complete. It’ll come out Sunday night time (fingers crossed) and may have my, uh, common sturdy opinions on the sale. 😉 This yr’s sale is a bizarre one, so….extra quickly.

However I did need to hop on actual fast and allow you to guys know what to anticipate from us this subsequent week. I do know lots of you might be all-in on the NSale and that’s nice! However I’ve acquired a sneaking suspicion that there are a few of you who select to not play alongside. And we take into consideration that – A LOT. Particularly because the NSale has modified through the years. So let me lay out what’s occurring over this subsequent week or two so you realize what to anticipate.

When the NSale opens (Tuesday), we begin publishing our try-on articles. We’ll doubtless drop 1-2 per day all through that first week. We’ll even have just a few Prime Day articles popping out then, too. If you happen to’re not an NSale fan, subsequent week may be tough. That stated, the try-ons themselves are stable fall outfit inspo, so…there’s that.

If you happen to are an NSale shopper, we’ve some significantly enjoyable issues on the horizon. First up, we’re bringing again our (barely unhinged, haha) NSale nightly publication. It comes out each night time throughout that first week (often fairly late) and accommodates the entire little nuggets of information we found that day. It may very well be something from a cool tee that was someway neglected to a pair of sneakers we *thought* we beloved…however proved to be uncomfortable. We often attempt to embody some kind of behind-the-scenes view of TME headquarters as a result of, fairly frankly, it’s kinda humorous. This job is bizarre at one of the best of occasions, and dealing till 3AM 4-5 days in a row is not one of the best of occasions. (Jeni only in the near past described this era as ‘summer season camp’ and it’s not a nasty descriptor.) Anyway, if you happen to love the NSale (and like us even just a little bit) subscribe to our special NSale newsletter. All of our content material (together with my private purchasing listing, Monday night time) hits the publication first.

Right here’s among the (hopefully useful) NSale content material we pulled collectively this week:

And now, I’m going again in there. Ship snacks.



6 fast issues (not NSale associated), only for enjoyable.

I’m at present sporting a re/completed tee and I shouldn’t love them as a lot as I do however they’re, simply, like completely becoming child tees (just a little slouchy, juuust lengthy sufficient to tuck into high-rise denims) and ridiculous sufficient to be endearing. Case in point (on sale, too).

Athleta is having a sale, and I’m getting this one-shoulder top & these sweatpants in…anticipate it…mushy persimmon. I already personal each in black and discover myself unreasonably enraged every time they’re within the wash.

Oh, Halfdays. I lastly tried Halfdays’ mountain climbing gear and the windbreaker and pants are stupidly freaking cool. I filmed a video which can come out finally, and within the video I used to be all, “ooo which shade ought to I preserve” like a complete blogger to, ya know, construct engagement or no matter however: inexperienced. I acquired the inexperienced. Sooooo good you guys.

Sidenote: what’s with me and all of this shade? Linzi is FREAKING OUT. We’ll see how lengthy this section lasts. MAYBE THIS IS JUST ME NOW, LINZI.

Talking of Linz…after I stole her dress, she responded.

I’ve been desirous about your electronic mail, Kristy…One in all our readers wrote in after a visit to Japan. “The style was hearth,” she wrote. “Dishevelled pants, lengthy skirts, paired with saggy tops, flowy tops, lengthy tops. Parachute pants. Pants that might go for skirts. Shirt attire over free becoming pants.” She requested if we’d mess around with these proportions. And admittedly, I observed this silhouette final summer season in Istanbul, too. Hmmmm. I’m not practically completed desirous about this, however I got here throughout this Free People outfit and thought that it had equally trendy proportions, however in a simple, approachable approach. Additionally, reader Abby’s epic look is in that realm, too. Child steps. However I’m undoubtedly placing wide-leg Adidas pants on my listing for fall (oh phew – I’m again to black).

The very best salad I’ve ever had. My buddy made this Tomato Salad w/ Cucumber & Ginger and I lack the phrases to specific how good it’s. That’s all.

Have an excellent weekend!
