What I Bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

zella live in high waist leggings, BP v neck pullover, nordstrom anniversary sale 2017 try on

Hey loves! Today I got my first order in from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I tried them on and took some quick pictures to show you guys the fit. I'll also be sharing my thoughts on each piece and sizing info too. There are three more items that I ordered but are still processing or went out of stock when my order was processed (I'll share those at the end of this post if you're curious!).

It's really easy to get carried away and want to add everything to your cart but I narrowed it down to only basics. In my opinion, this sale is the best time to pick up basics (and items that don't go on sale often) that you know you'll be needing come fall and winter.

Now let's begin!

zella live in high waist leggings, bp v neck pullover, nordstrom anniversary sale 2017 try on

BP V Neck Pullover | Sale Price: $24.90 {Size XS} - This little sweater is so so cozy! The ribbed material is very soft and the v neck is super flattering! The fit is supposed to be on the looser side and it runs true to size! I would say size down if you want a tighter fit. 

Zella Live In High Waist Leggings | Sale Price: $35.90 {Size S} - These leggings fit true to size and their high waist makes them incredibly flattering. The material is really nice and thick and not see through at all! I will be wearing these with all of my knits this fall & winter! There is a little bunching at my ankles but I don't mind that (see pics). I actually wanted them last year but they sold out (at the anniversary sale price!) and I'm so glad they were included this year! You need these, TRUST!

Rag & Bone High Waist Skinny Jeans | Sale Price: $131.90 {Size 24} - I am typically a size 26 in most jeans but I took Kate's (blogger of Lonestar Southern) advice and went down 2 whole sizes! These are super stretchy and the dark wash is super flattering! I am 5'2 and these fit a little long but that's easily fixed by cuffing them - I cuff most of my jeans anyway! 

Socialite Thermal Top | Sale Price: $24.90 {Size XS} - This thermal is the softest thing ever! So soft that I wanted to keep it on all day! It fits oversized just like the grey BP pullover. This will be such a great layering piece for fall! Go ahead and put this in your cart, you'll love it!

Other items I ordered but haven't received yet:

BLANKNYC Suede Skirt | Sale Price: $64.90 - This is backordered and won't ship until August but I ordered it in the burgundy color! It will be perfect for fall!! I know that leather isn't very stretchy so I'm hoping that it fits well - I ordered my normal size in this!

Lush V Neck Tee | Sale Price: $15.90 - Lush tees are one of my favorites! And for the price I couldn't resist getting at least one. I ordered it in the light pink color but unfortunately, when my order was processed it was out of stock!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings | Sale Price $64.90 - I've been on the hunt for a pair of leather look leggings that don't stretch out or get baggy around the knees, and I've heard that these are amazing! They are nearly $100 when they're full price so I had to take advantage of the sale price. I know I will get SO much wear out of these this fall & winter! 


 I hope this was helpful to those of you that are waiting for public access (opens this Friday the 21st) to shop the Nordstrom anniversary sale.

Function of Beauty Review {Custom Shampoo & Conditioner}

7.18.2017

function of beauty review and coupon : custom shampoo and condtioner


When I first saw these beautiful bottles floating around the internet I had to know what they were and where to get my own! I quickly found out that they were shampoo and conditioner custom prepared for your specific hair needs.

You start off by taking a hair quiz where you select the type of hair you have and your hair goals. A little background on my hair: it's wavy/curly, medium thick and dry. For my hair goals I picked hydrate, soothe scalp, anti-frizz, thermal protection, and deep condition. Then you can go on to choose your shampoo and conditioner color - I picked pink, of course! They also let you pick your fragrance (I chose essential oils) and its strength. You get to finish off your formula by giving it a name (How cool is it to have your name on your shampoo bottles!).

They have many size combinations to choose from but since I was just testing it out I went with their smallest, the 8oz bottles for $36. Not too bad considering it's going to be custom created for my hair goals. They offer free shipping and free returns, so that's a plus! The shipping took a lot longer than I expected - about a week.

I've been using my custom shampoo and conditoner now for two months and I love it! Not only is it pretty to look at but it smells so lovely too! The price is higher than I would like but it's going to last me a while. I wash my hair 1-2 times per week, use a generous amount of product and I'm not even halfway through the bottles yet.


Function of beauty shampoo: I love the clean and refreshing scent from the essential oils (mine smells like eucalyptus). It gives my scalp a minty cool feeling that I love while also preventing dandruff. I noticed that it's formulated without sulfates so I was worried it would be watery and not lather well. I was pleasantly surprised by how nicely it lathered. It cleans my hair just enough to not make it feel stripped of its natural oil.  It also made my hair feel noticably silkier and smoother.

Function of beauty conditioner: It has the same wonderful eucalyptus scent as the shampoo. It's very creamy and together with the shampoo makes my hair feel softer than before using these products. It's great however I think it could be a tad more moisturizing. Like I mentioned above, my hair is dry and needs all the moisture it can get! But with it being customizable I'm sure I can go into my Function of Beauty account and change up my formula for my next set.

Since this is custom made the product will vary from person to person but I think this product is worth trying out! Let me know if you've tried it before?

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm breaking up my #NSale posts with this striped summer look. This top is hands down one of my favorite tops this summer! You could dress it up with dark denim and heels or make it super casual with cutoff shorts and lace up sandals. I couldn't find the exact one I'm wearing online but I know a lot of stores offer super similar options - I've linked a few in the widgets throughout this post. Another one of my favorites this summer are these Westward Leaning Flower sunnies! They're tortoise print and have mirrored lenses which are perfect for summer! What is one of your summer favorites?

Thanks for stopping by!

One of the best times to stock up on beauty is now during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They always have amazing deals on jumbo sizes or makeup sets. It's also a great time to try new products from your favorite brands. The moment I saw this set from one of my favorite brands I knew I had to have it. I've already tried their volupte shine lipsticks and LOVE them! The other two lip products in the set I've never tried but they both have glowing reviews. There are too many good beauty buys this year that it's making it hard for me to choose, haha. Here's a complete look at all of the beauty exclusives in the #NSale.

I'd love to know what's one beauty product you'll be buying from the sale?
