Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks & OOTD

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started on Wednesday for Fashion Rewards members, and everyone can shop the sale starting on July 19th.  Here is what I ordered, we will see what ends up working out.
nordstrompicks


Removable Faux Shearling Collar Utility Jacket- I've been looking for a jacket like this for many seasons now.  However, none that I have found have ever fit me quite right...they have either been too long in the sleeves, too long in general, or too bulky.  This one comes in petite, so I'm hoping I will have better luck.  I'm not a fan of the shearling collar on the jacket, but it shouldn't be a problem since it is removable.
Tory Burch Brita Riding Boots- Sadly, my Steve Madden boots that I have had for years have seen better days.  I am looking for a new pair of boots in the cognac/brown family, and these look gorgeous!  They may end up being too tall for me, but there is only one way to find out.
Camel Pencil Skirt- I've been looking for a darker colored camel pencil skirt for awhile...I'm hoping this one works out and is the color I want.
Pleated A-Line Skirt- One thing I really want to do is try more skirts of different silhouettes. This looks perfect for fall...but if it is too short for work it will most likely end up going back!
Perfect Shower Cap- This cap claims to help your blow out last longer...and bonus points for having a chevron print!
Bombshell 1.5 Inch Curling Rod- I've been looking to upgrade my cheap-o 1.5 inch curling rod for awhile now...there aren't many of them out there though!  Sultra's curling rods generally have rave reviews, this one's are iffy though...but I can't wait to try it out.

Has anyone else shopped the sale?  What did you pick up?

Lastly, I leave you with a casual outfit.  Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh I love those shorts, so perfect for summer!


    I hate it when boots are too tall in the shaft - I've had to turn away too many awesome pairs of boots because I'm too short!

  8. Great post! Excited to check out the presale this weekend! The Sultra curling rods are amazing - the curls from it last forever - I have the 1-inch, but very curious about this one!

  9. Hope everything you ordered fits! I've been wanting to try out a curling rod on my hair but I'm not sure the curls would hold. This nautical outfit is adorable!

    I'm loving how you paired the anchors with the orange stripes instead of red, it makes it less nautical and really fresh! xo

  14. I have that Halogen pencil skirt in 3 colors and will most likely get another one. They are so comfortable, never wrinkle and I love the thick material. I think I might get the camel one too ;)

  15. That's good to know that they don't wrinkle! I might have to invest in a few if they fit :) Thanks for the tip!

    Those boots!!! I have my eye on the Rebecca Minkoff cupid purse - my black purse is dying a slow death. I am thinking buying a pair of Frye boots as well. Love your summer outfit! Why have I not seen this adorable tee at J Crew before?
