New Arrivals at Target (and a BOGO Boot Sale!)

Hello again! I haven’t been on here in awhile, due to moving and starting a new job (though I still post good deals over on my Facebook Page).  But I am still at Target all the time, and thought I would share some cute items I have seen there lately (boots are BOGO 50% off, and New Day dresses are 30% off right now):



First of all – I own these booties and they are great! They are easy to get on since they have a zipper in the back, are very comfortable and will go with anything.

Universal Thread Wenda Booties – $34.99


Rylie Faux Leather Bootie – $34.99 (also available in a cognac brown)


Bela Suede Cuff Boots ($39.99)


Bren Zipper Back Booties ($37.99)

Deal of the Day: Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is Back

Did you ladies see that Nordstrom has dropped prices on a ton of items (back to what they were during the Anniversary Sale)?

*This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase something after clicking on one of my links, I will be given a small commission.* 


First and most importantly, the best black pants ever are back down to $40 (I wear these 3+ times a week, year round. They run big so I would size down) –

This popular Madewell cardigan is back in stock and also 40% off –

I bought this Halogen Sweater from the Anniversary Sale and can tell you it is gorgeous in person (I bought it in XL for reference)


Also, the colored J. Crew blazer I have been eyeing is back to 40% off as well!
Basically, if you were eyeing something from the sale but it sold out, check the site again – chances are it is back in stock and back on sale! Click here for a comprehensive list of my favorite items from the Nordstrom Sale.

Deal of the Day: Animal Print Loafers for Under $15

Some of the big sellers at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale were animal print mules and loafers, like this snake skin Steve Madden pair. However, they are $70 and who knows if they will still be trendy next year!

If you’d like to try the trend for less, Wal-Mart has released several patterns of its “Time & Tru Feather Loafers” for only $14.97. I purchased some similar leopard loafers from them last year and really liked them.

Deal of the Day: My Favorite Suit for Under $100!

In a prior Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I bought the Halogen “Ela” Suit after trying about 20 others that just didn’t work for me. I am 5’11” and between a Large and X-Large (usually a 12 in pants), and needed a black pants suit that would fit my curvy hips and also be long enough on me.  I was so pleasantly surprised that this one (in Size 12) fit perfectly!

The “Ela” suit is now at Nordstrom Rack, and the entire thing is less than $100! (The exact pants/jacket I got total to $99 right now but other combos are actually far less).  Click here to shop the jacket, pants and matching skirt (as well as a plus-size version).
