It’s no secret that my love for summer runs deep. Between days on the lake and an excessive amount of burgers on the grill, it ranks high on my list of favorite seasons. But like all good things, summer is slowly but surely coming to an end. Cool mornings are already starting to make an appearance around these parts, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t the tiniest bit excited to bust out my cozy sweaters and boots with [or without] the fur. The one thing that kicks off my short-lived love affair with fall [besides a crockpot full of chili and tailgating season]? You guessed it. Insert the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
As usual, my glass [of Pumpkin Spiced Latte] is half full. Saying sayonara to summer never gets easier, but never fear– the most wonderful time of the year is finally HERE. And while I’m sweating bullets just thinking about it, I’m so jazzed to put all the cozy goodness the Sale has to offer to use. If you’re new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, get ready to shop your fuzzy socks off. This is by-far one of THEE most anticipated sales of the year with the best prices of the season. Each and every year, Nordstrom rolls out brand-spankin’ new products available at a discount for a limited time. Here’s the catch; Nordstrom card holders get the chance to shop first [learn more about that good stuff here] and once the sale is over, prices go back up. With FREE shipping and returns, taking advantage of the sale ASAP is your best bet in ensuring you get your hands on your must-have items from your wish list.
If you’re not a homebody yet [who am I kidding, EVERYONE is a homebody in 2020], you’re about to be. Comfy, cozy finds are my jam and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is bringing the heat. Today I’m sharing my tried & true favorites and some of the coziest items the sale has to offer. Snuggle me up, Scotty!
Have I ever mentioned my love for Barefoot Dreams? If there’s one brand I encourage you to hit check-out on during the sale, it’s this one. At this rate, we might as well rename the blog Living in CozyChic because by the time fall rolls around, I rarely take this one off.
Be still my heart. Gibson, you can do no wrong. I love a top that I can snuggle up on the couch in or just as easily wear out and about. This wrap front does just that. In case you were considering adding these joggers to your closet, let me be first to tell ya: don’t jog, RUN. And if tunics are more your jam, this one is legging friendly and easy to dress up or down. The cozy world is your oyster, friends.
Introducing UGG Crew Socks, for days when boots with the fur just don’t cut it. My boot socks get a LOT of wear and [sometimes] tear every season, so I like to stock up on my stockings during the sale. These work well for lounging around the house or for slipping into a pair of boots when the colder weather rolls around.
Three words: buy the blankets. If you’ve followed along for any length of time, you’ve probably heard me talk about all snuggly goodness included in the sale. There’s no time like the present to see what all the fuss is about and take advantage of cozy throws at prices we can get down with. Go ahead and treat yourself. [ps. They also make AHH-MAZING gifts when the holidays roll around!]
Speaking of cozy, all of that soft and snuggly goodness is also available in Dog Sweater form. Prepare your pups, they’ve never been snuggled harder.
A cozy fall round-up wouldn’t be complete without a candle to curl up next to. If you’ve never owned a candle from The White Company, you should know that they’re poured & hand-finished in the UK and smell absolutely AMAZING. Do yourself a favor and curl up next to one of these this season.
Last but certainly not least is another tried and true favorite that I can’t stop, won’t stop talking about anytime soon. I’ve owned several of these throws over the years and as one of our most-purchased items of the year, it’s safe to say they’re one of YOUR faves too! They’re super soft, wash well, and are available in a ton of colors. And at this price, grab a few as gifts too– go bunk-wild! Warning: your family may or may not argue over this one.
