Nordstrom Sale Update: Style and Beauty Elements on Heavy Rotation and Fresh Suggestions!

This Vince Bomber Jacket can be dressed up or dressed down for major versatility. 
Happy Friday, lovelies! I just filmed a video tutorial and also have a couple of major brand spotlights coming up, however, since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just launched for public access, I wanted to share a few key, still-in-stock pieces–both in the style and beauty sectors–that I’ve been reaching for frequently.  For reference, my full shopping guide for the sale can be found HERE
In the outfit above, which is rife with minimalist staples that are apropos for the entire year, I am wearing:
When off-the-shoulder feels fresh again. 
This gorgeous take on the off the shoulder trend by Leith harnesses the power of color-saturated satin. Combined with the Treasure and Bond High Waist Skinny Crop Jeans and Eileen Fisher Bailey d’Orsay Pumps in black, this top can be casual…I’ll mix it with a black mini for a night out soon, however!
The Madewell Ryder Cardigan…slightly oversized for an effortless fit. 
The Madewell Ryder Cardigan in Heather Root (above) has already made it into my outfit mix twice in the past week as it is perfect for getting cozy when the evening temperatures finally drop. Also, although they sold out quickly, I just confirmed that there was a recent restock on these clever jeans by Frame Denim (worn HERE) and I’ve been wearing these ultra-comfortble SARTO by Franco Sarto suede booties (below) with denim cutoffs and dresses (like this one from Trouve) alike! 
These SARTO by Franco Sarto booties are like nude lipstick for your feet…they go with absolutely everything.  
My summertime shades by Burberry.

In addition, these Burberry sunglasses (above) have been on heavy rotation for me; the nose pads ensure that the will stay in place (slippage is always an issue for me…can anyone else relate?), even throughout a sweltering day and the nude lucite frames with a dash of Burberry plaid are clean and classic.

Finally, I have my eye on:

  • Frame Step Hem black Jeans: Pure onyx with a detailing at the hem, these will be invaluable once I go back to the classroom in late August. It says they run small so I will order a 25 or 26 in this particular pair!
  • Frame Le Original Ripped Crop Jeans: Yet another pair of black jeans, you may ask? The Le Original cut is my absolute favorite in this line (I currently own three pairs in blue denim) and to have this timeless, slightly relaxed fit in black is a no-brainer for me. I’ll order a size 25 for comfort since they’re a touch high waisted.
  • Equipment Dorothy Cashmere Pullover: I wear all of my Equipment cashmere sweaters frequently (I have at least 5) and this gorgeous green v-neck version will be a lovely addition to my menagerie.
  • Virgin, Saints & Angels Choker: Delicate yet eye catching, I am intrigued by this golden layering piece. 
  • Rag & Bone Matteo Heel Sandal: It’s difficult for me to resist a cut out bootie and this neutral pair are calling my name, indeed.
  • Joie Cotton Shirtdress: Shirtdressing works so well for work and black and white plaid perfect for fall.
  • Diane von Furstenberg Walking Coat: I am an admitted coat lover and yet I do not own a gray topper…this breezy and casual option just may be coming home to me. 
  • Argento Multistrand Necklace: Glorious long necklaces are often difficult to find and this liquid metal version–in an array of alloys–will layer beautifully and match everything.
  • Elizabeth and James Heath Shift Dress: With a 1960s flair, this lady like confection has timeless appeal and will be lovely at a business dinner or when speaking at a conference. 
  • Nadri Trinity Necklace: Gilded and easy to wear, this necklace is a staple jewelry piece at a great price.
  • Rag & Bone Calder Stripe Reversible Blouse: How did I miss this the first time around? I can’t wait to wear this with jeans and shorts alike. 
  • Halogen Cashmere Poncho: This will be greatly appreciated as the temperatures drop and the fact that it comes in four colors is divine.
  • Nike LunarEpic Low Flyknit Tennis Shoe: White with rose gold accents, this shoe has a slightly elevated sole…yes, please. 
  • Nike Gym Capris: As soon as I get home from work, I change into something comfortable and these pants will be a fantastic addition to my rotation. 

–Shop the Style–

// Nordstrom Beauty Suggestions // As aforementioned in my last post, there are still currently significant savings at every price point! Consequently, here are some items that are still on my to-buy list, coupled with products I already own, use and love:
Knowing this would be a best seller, Nordstrom seemed to be prepared with the right amount of stock of the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze, Blush and Glow Set…this makeup lover couldn’t be happier that it is still available.

    Hi Rachel, Hope you're enjoying your summer!

    I'm completely enjoying some recommendations you made that I recently obtained (Gucci Liza boots, Oxydus, SKII, Le Metier Longevity etc..) Wow! Thanks for making the selections fool-proof. Probably many of us ask now, "What would the Beauty Professor do?" when trying to make results-oriented beauty/fashion choices. You're also very good at finding a balance between timeless and trendy.

    One item to double check – for the Chikuhodo GSN-4 brush you use for blush/powder, is this the same one they sell as a "highlighter" brush on Beautylish?
    Thank you. -Kashi
    p.s. like when you recommend books…am about to take a trip and will bring The Beautiful Fall for reading.
