Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access -- First round picks

If you're a regular reader of any blog basically ever ;) then I don't have to tell you that Early Access to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale starts today. Instead, let's cut right to the good stuff, which is what caught my eye right away.

To be honest, when I first saw this year's catalog I wasn't all that impressed and hoped it wasn't going to be a let down. Fortunately, it wasn't! I even had a hard time editing my first round of picks because there are just so many pieces I wanted -- way more than in years past! My strategy is usually to add a ton to my cart on day one, narrow it down a bit, then place an order. This sale is all about snagging the pieces you think you might even be remotely interested in as soon as you can, because things sell out so fast. I honestly try not to go overboard, but I'd rather be able to return something that I'm not totally in love with than miss out entirely ;)

After the first order is placed (and my first post is up haha) and for the next week of Early Access, I usually end up adding a ton of other things to my cart. At this point the initial rush is over and I can take a little more time to decide on rounds two, three, four...etc. ;) It's usually pieces I missed the first time that I'll find when perusing or things that I completely glossed over. I also try to make a trip to the store, because things always look different in person!

My strategy is almost always to stick to the basics, which you can pretty much tell by my picks -- though I will snag a few trendy items. Things I'm most excited about from my first order include this varsity tee, these jeans (such a good deal!), this blazer and this fuzzy coat. All of which I can picture myself wearing non-stop.

There are also a few other favorites I either got last year or already own: these jeans that are back again and are one of my most-worn pairs, this dress that I have in a different print...it's sooo comfy, my favorite leggings, two new colors of this suede moto jacket, these sneakers (so obsessed with the gray) and this dainty necklace.

As soon as my first order arrives (here's hoping my next business day shipping actually went through with all the website problems this morning) I'll be doing a try-on post like last year since you guys seemed to like that the most! So stay tuned and happy shopping!

Farfetch sale wishlist

Summer unofficially kicks off with Memorial Day this coming weekend (which I guess I was channeling given the color scheme of my picks haha) and the sale game is already strong! One of my favorites is the massive one Farfetch is currently having. They have so many designer items for up to (and even over!) 50% off and I'm seriously having a hard time narrowing down what I want! This is a great opportunity to stock up on basics as well as fun, seasonal pieces at amazing prices. Or to splurge on something that almost never goes on sale (ahem, this Chloe bag).

I'm actually tempted to get this mini crossbody in white, since I already have it in black and it's one of my most-used bags. And I've heard really good things about these white jeans, which is perfect since I'm in the market for a new pair. I also live in/am addicted to buying workout gear and they have tons of pieces from Nike and Adidas (like this cute tee) that I want to snag. Especially since I've been meaning to filter out some of the old, ratty stuff I wear to the gym over and over haha!

You can shop the entire sale here. Just don't blame me when you can't narrow down everything in your cart and just decide to buy it all ;)

Accessory must-have: Coin necklaces

One | Two | Three | Four

I tend to keep my accessories pretty minimal, which is why I think I've been so drawn to coin necklaces and pendants lately. They're fun and interesting while also being super versatile, which is great if you're like me and don't have the time (or desire, if we're being honest haha) to sort through a ton of accessories each morning. I just bought this one after eyeing it for months and have worn it every day since. It looks good with everything from a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit, a blouse for work and even dresses for all the baby/bridal showers and graduation parties, etc. that everyone seems to be having right now. I also love how they're great for layering with other dainty necklaces, especially if you want more of a statement look.

They are definitely trending for spring and summer, so I wanted to round up some of my favorites at varying price points. This is a great option if you just want to try it out, and I love this one and this one that are a better quality but still won't break the bank. They'd also make great gifts!

Happy Thursday!
