A photo from vacation at Lake Burton near Clayton, Georgia
Wow, I did it… I went totally dark last week. Except for Monday. It was relatively easy though, on Tuesday the whole family went up to a house we rented on Lake Burton and the connection/access was pretty spotty and frustrating. Anyway, I wasn’t interested in spending much time working or on my phone, I spent most of my time outside and in a kayak in the cove or in the lake. It was heavenly.
When we got back to the Atlanta area on Friday late afternoon, I checked in and browsed the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In years past, you may remember, I will sometimes buy one or two things and then return them. If I end up with anything, it’s usually a bra, or a few pairs of Hanky Panky thongs.
This year, I started with the Patagonia nano-puff hoodie for my mom. If I was in the market for a nano-puff jacket, I’d definitely get the hoodie instead of the regular one I have, but I’m not. There are times when I think I’d appreciate a hood, so I absolutely recommend this one – and the price is amazing, better than you can get it during REI’s coupon code in the fall. Just FYI, I took a large in this jacket, so I do think it runs rather small if you have any hips at all.
For myself, I ordered these Eileen Fisher wide leg pants, Beyond Yoga leggings & Spanx Lounge-hooray shorts. For the price, I thought I’d try the Eileen Fisher pants and return them if they’re not perfect. Eileen Fisher is hit-or-miss for me if I don’t try it on in person; the sizing is so random. I ordered the small.
There are also some other good Eileen Fisher pieces on sale, like this dress and this organic cotton jacket. And James Perse, of course. I bought and returned a dress in this color last year, not because of the color so much, but because the style wasn’t right on me, but this tank dress, and this price ($129) is a no-brainer if you’re in the market for another JP tank dress…
Of course, I’m tempted by a pair of satin Vince sneakers, and I definitely recommend this Beyond Yoga camisole with built in bra (I have two similar camis that are many years old, still going strong). OH yeah, and my FAVORITE SOCKS!!!
So…did you order/buy anything? Have your eye on anything? Or are you more like me, and don’t really shop this sale so much??
