Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Nordstrom AnniversaryAnneke McConnellComment

Hey friends! The time has come for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but before I dive into what I am buying personally and some recommended items, I wanted to share a few thoughts with you, especially if this is your first time shopping the sale. :-)

 

1. This is my 3rd year shopping the sale, and while I'm excited because it truly has AMAZING SALE PRICES for brand new Fall items, I feel like in the past it was way too easy to get caught up in the excitement of it all and buy things that weren't really my style OR that fit my lifestyle as a stay at home/work at home mom.  

With that said, I'd definitely suggest shopping the sale with a list of TOP items you're shopping for, and don't stray too far unless you find something you absolutely LOVE or is a crazy steal. Last year for me, that was the GloPro Microneedling Tool, and I am still SO HAPPY with that purchase.

GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool Face and Eye Set

It is included in the Anniversary Sale again this year at $100 off and I can't recommend it enough after using it for the past year! 30's are REAL if ya know what I mean! ;-)

 

2. The people that work at Nordstrom are SUPER nice people, and to be honest, I used to be super intimidated to walk into the store and ask for help. It sounds so silly now! If you're interested in checking items out at your local store, don't be shy and set up an appt. I have yet to meet any associate that isn't an absolute gem!

This North Face fleece pullover has been a go-to, so the Thread and Supply pullover in the sale is a MUST for anyone looking to stay cozy in the Fall and Winter months. Along with the Zella Live In Leggings (aka essentials) you'll be set for comfort. :-)

 

3. Tomorrow we're headed out for a family staycation to beach house on Whidbey Island (follow along on Instagram stories!) so I'm personally just shopping the Nordy sale online and looking forward to some happy mail when we get home. For the sale, I'm focusing on fall and winter sweaters, denim, ankle boots, some coats, handbags, and workout gear like workout leggings, workout tanks and tennis shoes. :-)

This jacket here is almost identical to a major favorite jacket in this year's sale!! TTS

 

Here are a few items I currently have in my cart and some top picks! Fingers crossed my final picks will arrive in the mail quickly! :-)

 

 

TOP PICKS FOR SWEATERS

I basically LIVE in cozy sweaters all Fall and Winter so I can't wait to stock up on them!! The prices are too good! THIS SWEATER is my absolute TOP pick!  I love it!!!!

 

 

TOP PICKS FOR DENIM

Over the years I have found an appreciation for some well fitting denim, and have been able to drastically declutter my closet by investing in some jeans that really fit well. For me this means fitting my petite self and maintaining excellent shape retention. Basically, they stretch and are comfortable, but don't actually stretch out and get saggy.  I personally love AG, Rag and Bone, and Articles of Society.

 

 

TOP PICKS FOR SHOES

Remember that most of these boots and shoes are available in multiple colors! 

 

See those tall black boots on the left, third row down? Having owned a pair by this brand before, I can say with confidence how comfortable they are! I'm getting that boot this year in the Rust Suede, which is such a stunning color! 

I'll continue to add to update this post, but for now these are my top picks!  Next I'm focusing on coats (THIS ONE IS IN MY CART!!), handbags (this Tory Burch bag has my eye), and jewelry (I was shocked at the price on this Michele watch)!

 

MORE FAVORITES

 

 

 

I can't wait to share more! The sale is GOOD this year and items are already selling out, crazy as that is!!


 

I hope this helps you navigate the sale a little better! I'll share more as the items I bought arrive in the mail, but in the meantime, don't stress it and HAVE FUN!!

 

From the beach!

Hey friends! It's been a busy few weeks of our kids wrapping up their school year, us working on patio updates for Summer (here's our plan), and my husband and I just celebrating our 16th year anniversary! After going through some rough patches, this year's anniversary just seemed a bit more special and it was nice to just send the kids off to Grandma's and stay at the beach house.

He surprised me with one of my fave flowers - stargazer lilies!

Beach House Art Work and Rope Basket - Coastal Interiors

Hanging Rope Basket by Sewcialite (this is where we currently corral our keys) / Sailboat Artwork by Melissa Lyons Art / Large Clear Glass Vase (about 6" x 6" x 12") alternative set of 4 / Reclaimed Wood Entryway Console Table from Homegoods (alternative)


I have to admit I've been feeling pulled in a million directions lately. I've been brainstorming content for the blog and Instagram and it's going to look a little different for Summer since I'm home with our 3 kiddos until school starts back up again in September.  I'm pretty protective of our time together and boundaries, but I also LOVE to design and help you guys get that Coastal look!

With that said, I recently asked you guys on Instagram if you preferred more of a product round up style of blog posts (such as Coastal Dining Chairs or lighting or rugs, etc.) OR if you preferred more edesigns.  You guys gave me a good laugh because the results were basically split down the middle. Of course. ;-)

Instgram Poll for Coastal Interiors

 

 

I'll be kicking off a series for the Summer (more to come) that will include a mix of edesigns, product round ups, and personal projects from our beach house like our Master Bedroom reveal, our Patio and some furniture makeovers. I can't wait to share all of these and also more details about a fun project in the works that will help you guys in your own decorating endeavors!

Onto today's edesign and all the epic sales for the 4th of July Holiday - they're GOOD!

I came across this storage bench with cute wicker basket and drawers as I've been debating what to put in our own entryway.  As for the It's possible to get multiples of these and put them side by side and get the built in look without them actually being built in. Plus they come in multiple colors and are a great option for refinishing if you wanted to!

The diamond rug below is also currently 55% off with hundreds of other rugs so if you're on the lookout for a good rug at a good price, check out all the options HERE!

Serena & Lily is also having a 20% off sitewide sale and their rugs are some of my favorites for getting that Coastal Chic look!

Cozy Sitting Area with Sleeper Chair

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home DecorAnneke McConnell

Whether you have room for guests in a dedicated room or not, it's nice to have some alternative sleeping options for visitors. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a sleeper sofa or chair.  There's nothing extra to store away or a space that is not being used all that much (depending on how often you have guests!). 

This edesign showcases a simple and inviting chair to relax in, but it can also be opened into a twin mattress bed when needed. Win-win!

Before diving into design details, a couple sales worth noting:

I hope you enjoy this edesign and find it inspiring for your own home!  I'm especially loving those pillows!!!

On a personal note, we're almost ready to share the beach house master bedroom makeover and ordered items for our summer patio are trickling in. I can't wait to share these with you, but in the meantime you can follow the day to day shenanigans on social!

Memorial Day Sales Worth Checking Out!

sale alertAnneke McConnell

Thank you for all the positive feedback on my last post sharing about our Beach House Patio Makeover plan. I can't wait to implement everything as items begin to arrive! 

First and foremost concerning this Memorial Day weekend, this is a weekend to remember those who have fought and died for our country's freedom, and I don't take that lightly.  Although many of the Memorial Day sales have already begun and many of us are taking the opportunity to prepare for the summer months ahead, I encourage you to take some time of solitude or whatever is meaningful to you to pay respects to those who have served our country and the families left behind. 

It's difficult to adequately express, but our family extends the sincerest gratitude for the men and women who served and died for the freedoms of our nation and to their families this Memorial Day weekend.


With that said above, today's post is all about a quick run down of sales I think are worth checking out from a home decor and style perspective. Whether you're updating your patio, a bedroom, living room, or summer wardrobe, here's where to look! I'll personally be shopping a lot of sites, but mostly on Serena & Lily, Nordstrom, and Joss & Main.

I have my eye on this top by Alice and Olivia that  - fingers crossed - will go on sale!!

 

SERENA & LILY

Serena & Lily Coastal Home

Serena & Lily is my absolute favorite coastal home decor brand because their items are high quality, beautiful, chic, durable, and more. They rarely have sales, so when they do you know it's the time to jump on it!  

This is the time of year you can get 20% off semi-custom sofas, chairs, etc.!  Their sale is currently open early to VIPs (i.e. get the discount code by being on their email list!) and will open up to everyone tomorrow. Valid 5/23-5/29

Here are a handful of favorites, but there is literally not much of anything I don't love from their store! They have coastal chic sofas, dining furniture (their Riviera chair and barstool are customer faves), tables, bedding, pillows, outdoor, cute baby decor and more.

Oh and their RUGS!! Every single one of their rugs is a stunner! We have the Tulum Rug in our Master Bedroom (final reveal coming soon!) and it really grounds the room beautifully!

Laundry Room by McGee and Co.

McGee & Co. has a great variety of options for the homeowner looking for high quality items with a relaxed, but sophisticated vibe. I love the coastal looking striped baskets in this laundry room!  You can currently get 20% off sitewide with code SUMMERSALE through 5/28/2018. Below are just a handful of favorites.

Outdoor Patio Chairs

It's hard to go wrong with Joss & Main. The selection is huge and they have a great price point for many people. I love this outdoor chair set!! I'll definitely be snagging some items for our patio and beach house during their sale!
