#NSale Beauty Picks

Hi friends!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public, which means you can shop the sale with or without the Nordstrom card. Today I'm sharing my top beauty picks!

1. Drybar The Most Wanderful Waves Set // $165 ($240 Value)
I LOVE Drybar products! I use their dry shampoo and it works wonders on my hair (only have to wash my hair twice a week).

2. T3 Cura Hair Dryer // $134 ($200 Value)
Pricey, but I hear awesome things about this dryer.

3. MAC Nordy Girl Metallic Face & Eye Set // $44.50 ($202 Value)
This is an amaaazing deal! It includes an eye shadow/highlighter palette, mascara and eye liner.

4. Laura Geller INKcredible Eyeliner Set // $29 ($88 Value)
These are my favorite eye liners so I definitely plan to order one of these sets. You get 4 liners- 2 blacks, a brown and a purple.

5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo // $28 ($43 Value)
I've raved about Anastasia brow products before on my blog and on my Instagram stories. I use the brow wiz pencil EVERY day. The pencil usually costs $21 so it's a good deal because for $28 you also get the brow gel. The only downside is that they only offer a few shades in this set.

6. Impressions Vanity Co. Touch Trifold XL Dimmable L.E.D. Make Up Mirror // Sale: $58.90 (After Sale: $89)
I NEED this mirror! Since having Logan, I tend to do my make up in various parts of the house (LOL). I could really use a portable stand up mirror like this!

7. Sigma Beauty Brush Duo // $33 ($50 Value)
I just bought this in stores and can't wait to try these foundation brushes. They get raving reviews!!

8. Stila Color Me Classic Set // $20 ($33 Value)
I didn't purchase this because my eyes are sensitive to the eye liner, but I've heard SO many people say Stila is their favorite liquid liner. I have tried the liquid lipstick and LOVE it. My favorite is the color Perla. This shimmery caramel shade looks really pretty, too!

9. Charlotte Tilbury The Pretty Pink Lipstick Set // $60 ($90 Value)
I want this set SO. BADLY...just don't like the price tag (even though it's a good deal for the brand). I have her lipstick in Kim K.W. and liner in Iconic Nude. I'm a huge fan!!

Have you guys purchased any beauty items from the sale?? I would love to hear your favorites!

First Look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale {Early Access}

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (known as the #NSale on social media) is an annual 3 week sale featuring brand new fall and winter merchandise at discounted prices. Instead of starting at full price, these items are marked down FIRST and then prices go back up after a selected period of time!

What are the dates?
The Early Access Sale is for cardholders and runs from July 12-19. Only Nordstrom debit and credit card holders can shop the sale during this time. It's definitely worth having a Nordstrom credit card because you can shop this sale early and be sure to get your favorite items before they sell out! The sale opens to the public on July 20 and runs through August 5. After that, prices go back up.

What are the most popular items?
The most popular fashion items are boots and booties, scarves, basic tees, cardigans, denim and designer handbags. 

What's the best way to shop this sale?
There are definitely advantages to shopping both online and in the store. I like to browse online first to get an idea of what is available and which items I have my eye on BEFORE going to the store. I must admit, it can be overwhelming in stores, especially if you go in without a game plan! A great way to shop the sale online is by visiting your favorite blogs (after all, we do a lot of work to make your shopping easier!). From there, decide which items are your favorites and what you would like to add to your fall and winter wardrobe, then head to your local Nordstrom to try things on! And remember, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, so grab your favorites before they sell out. You can always return and exchange items later!

This post is BARELY scratching the surface of the sale, but I wanted to get my favorites on here ASAP for you to shop! I'll be heading to Nordstrom today and I'll have a 'try on session' post up tomorrow (follow along on Instagram stories @styleinharmony). I also plan to cover my beauty favorites at some point and I would like to share more handbag options, too.

Okay, without further ado...

1. BP. Plaid Shirt // Sale: $31.90 ~ After Sale: $49
One of my favorite buys from last year! I got so much wear out of this button down throughout the fall and winter. I wore mine with black denim a lot! 

2. Steve Madden Trace Studded Mule // Sale: $49.90 ~ After Sale: $79.95
How cute are the studs on this?? I'm also crushing on the snakeskin pattern!

3. BP. Tonya Open Toe Mule // Sale: $49.90 ~ After Sale: $79.95
At first glance, these are my favorite shoes in the sale so far! I love the blush suede color.

4. Hunter Original Short Rain Boot // Sale: $89.90 ~ After Sale: $140
I never knew how much I needed a great rain boot until I got my tall black Hunters a few years ago. If it's raining or snowy, I know exactly what shoe I'm putting on before I leave the house! I'm a huge fan of the brand and I'm loving this short boot. Hunters don't go on sale often, so GRAB THEM NOW!

5. Jeffery Campbell Vanhook Bootie // Sale: $92.90 ~ After Sale: $139.95
I haven't tried these before, but I hear they are SO comfy and made really well.

6. Shiraleah Addison Scarf // Sale: $21.90 ~ After Sale: $33
Loving the fall colors in this scarf.

7. Treasure & Bond Three-Layer Pendant Necklace // Sale: $29.90 ~ After Sale: $49

8. Nordstrom Genuine Calf Hair Leopard Print Clutch // Sale: $65.90 ~ After Sale: $99
Because who doesn't need a leopard clutch!?

9. STS Blue Emma Ripped Fray Hem Skinny Jeans // Sale: $38.90 ~ After Sale: $59
A great year round black skinny jean! 

10. BP. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee // Sale: $11.90 ~ After Sale: $17
I wear basic tees on the regular throughout the entire year. They are cute and easy to throw on with jeans or jean shorts! During the colder months, I throw on a long cardigan or moto jacket over top.

11. BP. Cocoon Cardigan // Sale: $31.90 ~ After Sale: $49
I bought last years version of this cardigan in burgundy and I reached for it all fall and winter! There are so many ways to wear open front cardigans...I wear a tee or tank under mine with jeans and booties!

12. BLANKNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket // Sale: $64.90 ~ After Sale: $98
I love that this moto jacket has a hood!

13. Leith Sleek Knit Midi Dress // Sale: $42.90 ~ After Sale: $65
Midi dresses are trending this year and I think this one would be really cute with a long cardigan or blazer over it and some booties.

14. BLANKNYC The Rivington Ripped Straight Leg Jean // Sale: $64.90 ~ After Sale: $98
I'm OBSESSED with these. Can't wait to try them on in stores!
