These Are My Keepers

For me, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale involves a lot of ordering and returning.  Well I am finished with that whole process and I'm happy with my keepers.  I'm so happy that I need to tell my neighbor about them before time is up!  The sale ends tomorrow, prices go up Monday, Aug.3rd!


First up, I had to get gear for Round Top.  Last spring one of my rain boots got a hole in the bottom and my foot was sloshing around in mud all day.  When I saw these black Hunter boots had a navy stripe down the back I knew they would look awesome with denim.  And who wants to keep track of an umbrella at Round Top? So I finally invested in my first rain coat since I was 5 years old, ha!  I love how this trench allows me to have a shape, this is a size XS.  This will be great for rainy day drop-off and pick-up at the elementary school as well.  Here are a few clickable thumbnail links to my gear:




And now that I'm taking care of myself and working out on a regular basis, I need more activewear.  My favorite leggings are Zella and they are always included in the Anniversary Sale.  Thank you, Nordstrom!  Here are my keepers in clickable thumbnail links:



Normally I wear a small in these but I had to go down a size in the zig-zag leggings.



My everyday CZ studs were looking sad and tarnished.  So I did a style upgrade with these!  They make me feel "edgy".  And the sales associate said they were one of the first styles to sell out in the store, this gives me confidence to do the "edgy".



Now these were a huge purchase.  I've always loved this style boot and I've been wanting to replace my worn out black knee high boots with something more sophisticated.  These were the keepers and FYI: I had to go down a size in these boots.



Last winter I didn't have any easy sweaters I could throw on with leggings or jeans, dress up or dress down.  I like the style and the price of these.  I have wide shoulders so most of the time a shoulder seam doesn't hit in the right place and shirts are too tight. These sweaters have raglan and dropped shoulder style sleeves, perfect for my wide shoulders!



Last but not least, my favorite thong, it's on sale!  What's special about these? There are no lines when I wear a form fitting dress or pant.

I now consider all of these selections "tried and true" because I'm not on the fence about any of them.  I've hemmed and hawed, I've been to the store to try on multiple sizes, I've finished my returns and these are my keepers! Now good luck to you in the final hours of this amazing sale!
