Fall is right around the corner which means one thing in the blogger world – the Nordstrom Sale is here! While I personally don’t think this sale is worth the hype it gets, there are some good finds. While some pieces are just not worth it, you can shop the NSale on a budget, stock up on some quality pieces and not regret your purchases come Fall. How? Be smart, shop what you need and don’t fall prey to the ‘sale’ mentality. To help achieve this, I’ve rounded up things I already own that are discounted during this time. These NSale on a Budget pieces are tried and true, lasted me years and are true favorites! Happy shopping!
SHOP NSALE ON A BUDGET, MY TRIED & TRUE FAVES:
clothes shop all women’s sale
Rounded V-Neck T-Shirt – eight colors. normally $25, now $12.90
I have this t-shirt in white and it’s the one I reach for the most. And trust me, I know white tees – I have way too many in my closet. It’s light and comfortable, without being see-through. It’s super flattering and works if I’m dressing it up or just throwing it on with lounge shorts. I will be grabbing a couple more while they’re on sale.
Sleepy Lounge Tee – five colors. normally $19, now $11.90
Another tee I own and love (also in white, I really have too many!). This one is more of an oversized fit but is SO comfortable. You cannot beat the quality, especially for only $12! I sized up and love wearing this one with leggings in the Fall and Winter. It’s a great layering piece.
Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan – four colors. normally $116, now $68.
The Barefoot Dreams pieces are a splurge, even at the discounted price but they are well worth the money. They feel like butter on your skin, are so cozy and truly last for years. I’ve owned this exact cardigan for 3 or 4 years now and it still is basically brand new. This cardigan is more of a structured piece and is great to wear to work. It also works with leggings though, you can truly wear it so many ways.
Barefoot Dreams Long Cardigan – three colors. normally $114, now $65.90.
This is truly one of my favorite items I own in my entire closet. I think it is also one of my most worn items. I wear it around the house, I wear it over athletic clothes and I’ve dressed it up over dresses. It is so versatile, it’s so soft and it’s amazing. If you are wanting your first Barefoot Dreams item, this cardigan is kind of like their robe, blanket and cardigan had a baby. It could work for so many situations and you will not regret grabbing one while it’s on sale!
Zella Crop Leggings – two colors. normally $55, now $35.
These were a NSale purchase I made last year and they definitely were worth the money. I have worn them many, many times and they have held up so well. Better than many of my Lulu leggings, in fact! They’re comfortable, durable and flattering. The grey isn’t available this year, but the black and pink are both super cute!
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – one color. normally $98, now $64.90
Any and every year these are included, I will recommend them! They are SO good. I purchased a pair almost 4 years ago and they still look brand new. I wear them constantly in the Fall and Winter. They are comfortable like leggings but can be dressed up or down. They hold up in the wash and are super flattering. I don’t know what else you could need!

GHD Classic Curling Iron – normally $199, now $133
I’ve tried a lot of the high end curling iron brands and GHD is continually my favorite year after year. It heats up in just 30 seconds, which makes getting ready quickly a breeze + works so well. It creates a great, long-lasting curl or wave depending on how you use it. I’ve had mine for almost 3 years and it still works just as well as the day I got it. It also shuts off on its own after 30 minutes, helping my anxiety because I often wonder if I leave things plugged in. This is absolutely my most used hair tool, more than T3 or any other brand.
Personal Microderm Device – normally $199, now $133
This little device is like a vacuum for your face! It gently sucks to remove dead skin, clogged pores and debris from your skin and its amazing. I have been using this device for years and it makes all the difference. I have quite a few blog posts about it – 5 Easy Steps to Feeling Confident in Makeup-Free Skin, Summer Skincare Favorites, Winter Skincare Routine. $133 may seem steep but if you were to pay a spa to do this type of facial you may pay close to that for just one treatment. Ideally, I use mine once a week – it takes about 5 minutes and is such a great refresh. I have been adjusting to newborn life and haven’t used mine lately, but hope to work it back into my routine soon.
Lancer Skincare Jumbo Method Polish Exfoliator – normally $115, now $85
This tube is one of the best exfoliators you’ll find! I know $85 seems nuts, but it will last you so long. A little bit goes a very long way and this jumbo tube has a ton. I use it once a week, before my daily face wash, it is quick + easy and removes dead skin. You’ll have beautiful, glowing skin in no time!
Olaplex System Set – normally $126, now $84
This three product set is such a steal! Olaplex is one of my favorites, especially if you’re looking to treat damaged hair. The shampoo and conditioner are great for regular use and the Number 3 treatment is incredible for repair. I use it as a hair mask and the results are insane. Many salons will give you this treatment as well and charge $$$, so getting all three products for $85 is so great!
Microneedling Facial Set – normally $334, now $179
Much like the PMD, recieving a microneedling facial at a spa can be expensive. Getting your own, easy to use, microneedling device for at home is a game changer! This handheld roller has a head on it with tiny microneedles. You roll these on clean skin and the tiny needles puncture your skin. It’s not painful at all and this quick, weekly process helps facial serums go deeper and produces more cell turnover. The outcome? Tight, glowing, clear skin. Here are a few posts where I chat about this more – Summer Skincare Favorites, Post Travel Beauty Tips, Winter Skincare Routine.
Barefoot Dreams Blanket – five colors. normally $180, now $119.
This blanket is one of the best things I own. Well actually, we love it so much we now have two. I sleep with it every night, use it whenever I’m home working, take it with me anywhere I travel. I mean seriously, I cannot live without this blanket. It’s so soft, it’s like butter. I can’t even truly explain how great it is. If you’ve ever considered buying one, you won’t get a better deal than this!
Diptyque Set of 5 Candles – normally $75, now $55
I have this set of candles on our bookshelf and I love how they look grouped together. It’s definitely a splure but I’m a sucker for great candles. With the holidays right around the corner, this would also make a great gift for a friend or five! Grab this set and pair it with a bottle of wine for an easy gift idea.
Nuna Pipa Lite LX Car Seat & Two Base Bundle – normally $619, now $459
We actually have this Pipa Lite LX with one base (also on sale!) but the bundle is such an incredible deal, I wanted to share both! This is the carseat we use with Foster and we love it. It’s light and easy to carry, has excellent ratings and I love the look of it. We use it with the Nuna Triv Stroller (not on sale but an incredible stroller) and could not be happier with our decision!
SHOP NSALE ON A BUDGET, MY 2020 WISHLIST:
my wish list
North Face Cragmont Fleece Jacket – two colors. normally $149, now $104
I love this two-tone jacket! It can be casual or dressed up, which is what I look for anytime I’m spending a good bit on something. I love the brown trim and how cozy it looks. Now, I just need Fall to hurry up!
Madewell High Waist Vintage Jeans – normally $128, now $84
These mom jeans are just a classic! They look comfy + flattering, I feel like I will live in these. I’m a huge fan of the Madewell brand and think these are a great price point. I know I’ll live in these.
Nike Air Max 270 Sneaker – two colors. normally $150
I’m a sucker for a great pair of tennis shoes and I LOVE these. I don’t have any in this style and the color combo is to die for. I know I will live in these year round, so I had to add them to my wish list.
Gucci Cat Eye Sunglasses – normally $360, now $239
I love the classic shape and style of these Gucci glasses and at over $100 off, I couldn’t resist adding these to my wish list!
Madewell Square Scarf – normally $65, now $42
This scarf is such a beautiful print & pattern, perfect for Fall and can be worn so many ways! Living in the south, a light scarf around the neck or in your hair is a great way to transition your outfits into Fall without sweating your booty off.
GHD Flat Iron – normally $249, now $166
I figured it’s time to retire my Khloe Kardashian flat iron and get something new. I mentioned above that I LOVE the GHD brand and this one is almost $100 off.
BB Dakota Plaid Boyfriend Blazer – normally $99, now $59
A blazer is such a great closet staple and BB Dakota is such a great brand! This plaid one is perfect for Fall + so affordable. I love throwing a blazer over denim shorts or grabbing it for a meeting with clients. I usually grab one blazer during every NSale and this is my pick for 2020.
