back to school outfit staples!

(Nordstrom Sale Edition!)

It is that time of year, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I really only do my shopping from Nordstrom during their anniversary sale since you can find so many quality pieces at a discounted price. This year I am focusing on two things. The first is quality pieces that look great while teaching remotely. Second easily washable pieces if you have to go in to school then throw them right in the laundry when you return home!

THE DETAILS: Early access for select card members is open now! The Early Access Preview is available to everyone right now. Early Access will open for all card members on August 13th, then the sale opens to the public on August 19th.

WHAT TO BUY: Staple pieces that will go a long way. Aim for quality brands that you can dress up. Brands like Spanx and Barefoot Dreams rarely go on sale, so this is the time to buy it!

WHAT I WOULDN’T BUY: Don’t buy something just because it is on sale. Ask yourself if you are going to like it if it weren’t on sale anyway.


Great tops that you can accessorize well on camera. Comfy pants if you have to be virtual for multiple hours.

Whenever the Nordstrom sale comes around I always buy an item from the brand Barefoot Dreams. It is the softest, coziest brand known for the ultimate comfort and luxury. This year I am recommending the cardigans for their durability and flexibility to throw on for in person or online teaching.

I am also very into colorblock and this Madewell cardigan is a great steal as well!

Spanx leather leggings are absolutely incredible and look super polished when paired with sweaters and blazers. These are a MAJOR steal and if you walk away from here with one thing, try to get these leggings. They are fitted very well so size up one. Goes with EVERYTHING!
