Last year we brought our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dressing room straight to our blog, and we’re doing it again. You’ve seen a few of our favorite picks on our Instagram accounts and on our previous post, but here’s the full monty.
I should also mention this (and feel like maybe I should have mentioned this a LOOOOONG TIME AGO): I am your average girl/woman/mom/daughter/sister/auntie. I am a size 10. Sometimes a 12 (my ‘girls’ often size me up, hehe). I am not a size 2, of which I see A LOT of when I’m perusing super popular fashion blogs and instagram accounts. I have no problem with any of those gals, but I also feel like there’s a gap out there in the world of fashion and style blogs.
There are a lot of size 2’s, AND a lot of plus sizes. And thank goodness for that! But what I DON’T see a lot of is the average-ish woman. Either that, or she isn’t disclosing her size. Which is also completely fine. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought it would make me feel more real to tell my readers what size I am. Why?
Because here i am, posing in clothes, talking about why I love them and why you should too, and you’re sitting there thinking – would that look good on me? What size is she, REALLY? It’s SO hard to tell in a photo (where you can pose in JUST the right way to hide your wobbly bits!).
So there you have it. Sure, would I love to lose some lbs? Yes! But do I enjoy chips and guacamole? You better believe it. And sugar….my extreme downfall. I’ve had two children, and I love life. I work out, I eat, I shop……I’m happy. And that’s what it’s all about.
I’ll hop off my soapbox for today…….so for now, enjoy some of my favorite things from the #nsale!
Happy Shopping friends! Hope you find some things you LOVE, shop it all right here, or click thru from each picture!
