Let’s Go Shopping for some Mommy-Friendly Capsule Wardrobe Pieces at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Eek! So exciting…the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is HERE! I’ve been looking around for some new Mommy-friendly capsule wardrobe pieces there’s never a better time than when it is ON SALE! The lowdown on this sale…if you are a Nordstrom card holder there is early access running now through July 19! If you’re not a Nordstrom card holder, don’t worry, you can start shopping the sale July 20-August 5!
Anyway, I feel like I’ve been in a total frump slump lately. Having been pregnant or breastfeeding for the past three years (yes 3 YEARS!) I haven’t really wanted to update my wardrobe. This is because “ohh, I’ve still got breastfeeding boobs” or “I’ve still got to lose those last few pounds” (more on that later), but today I’m showing you my top 10 items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that can be purchased and worn if you’re in that situation, too!
Ever since having kids I haven’t wanted to change my style because even though I’m a mom I can still dress like a “cool” mom. Honestly, though, things do change, but you can definitely create a great kid-friendly style on a budget! Come on friends, let’s go! Click the pics below to take you right to the pieces in the sale!

The Basic Tee
This basic tee is adorable! I love the lines of it and this BP. Raw Edge V-neck tee will be flattering on almost all body types! I’m absolutely obsessed and will be wearing this with some leggings and my Adidas…or you could dress it up with some faux leather leggings, a blazer and some cute booties or heels for a date night or drinks with the girls! Oh, and for just under $12 you can TOTALLY afford to get this in a few colors!
If you’d like a plain tee with a little more style to it, maybe a pocket will do! This Caslon Rounded V-neck Tee is super cute and has a similar style to the BP tee above, but with a cute little pocket. There are a bunch of colors to pick from and I will certainly be purchasing a few of these in different colors for my own wardrobe. At just under $18 a tee you almost can’t afford not to! 🙂
I’m not sure about you but I typically LIVE in leggings most of the fall and winter. It’s just easy – you can dress them up or look athleisure-cool in them. So when I saw these Zella Live In High Waist Leggings for $35 I had to give them a try. They have a little more detailing than the leggings I typically wear and I can totally wear these with one of those cute t-shirts! I’m absolutely loving the Red color, just to switch up my mostly black and gray wardrobe. But if Red isn’t your color these are available in Black and Navy, too!Over the past 6 months I’m going to admit that I’ve been looking at these Spanx Faux Leather Leggings in black. Maybe I’m a little crazy, but I truly think they can be a versatile. Toss them on with the white BP tee (see a theme here, totally worth the $11! 😉 ), a cute little blazer (I’ve got so many from my Corporate days!) and some edgy booties…oooh, I am not wishing the summer away, but it’s a cute fall outfit to think about!
Ho Hum, who wants to think about sweaters right now? Definitely not me because I love spicy hot weather! The truth is, though, that fall is eventually coming so why not stock up on some cute essentials while they are on sale!? I found this Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Sweater and it is SO SIMILAR to a sweater I purchased from Nordstrom (in beige) last year that I had to include it in this roundup. I seriously wear it ALL THE TIME! I’ve worn it over leggings, jeans, dresses…this piece is just so versatile and I’d highly recommend it. The reviews are also outstanding so I guess I’m not the only one who loves it!
Another very cute sweater with a fun back is this Caslon V-Back Sweater. This is going to make an adorable outfit with some jeans, booties and a simple necklace this fall! It comes in a few different colors, but I’m thinking the Purple (burgundy-ish) may be calling my name…I’m trying to get out of the gray and black zone! If you click through and check out this sweater, you’ll see the fun back!
Who’s in the market for new jeans? I am, I am! I always tend to wear darker colors because I feel like they tend to be a little more “formal” maybe, is that the word I’m looking for? You can dress dark jeans up or down. The issue is that I look in my close and all I see are dark jeans, really. So scrolling through the jeans at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale these cute BLANKNYC jeans caught my eye. They are in a nice medium blue jean shade and look like they’ve got a higher rise than I’m used to. Totally stepping out of the box here, but I’m excited to give them a try!
I’m also liking these STS Blue ripped jeans for a more casual vibe! They are a similar wash and I’m kind of digging it! For $42 they are kind of a steal!
One thing I can never have enough of…camis! I feel like in order to feel confident (and like I’m not going to bust out of everything these days from having breastfeeding boobs!) and I need a cami under everything from dresses to sweaters to even button down shirts! I don’t like to bear cleavage on a day-to-day basis while running around with the kids and in order to skip out on the wardrobe malfunctions I opt to wear great camis under most of my outfits! These Halogen Seamless Two-way Camisoles are awesome…you can literally wear the v-neck in the front, or flip the cami around and wear the square neckline for more modest coverage…genius! For $20 they are a steal, but if you buy 2 or more, you get an even deeper discount. Bonus, they are available in a bunch of colors!
Ahhh, this Momma has been searching high and low for these Hunter rain boots for a while. After a soggy spring over here, I’ve been looking and looking for Hunter boots on sale! These boots are under $100 and I’ve heard nothing but good things about them! Be sure to get yourself a pair because I’ve yet to see a neutral color on sale like this!
I’m so excited to share some of these outfits with you on Instagram! Have you gone shopping at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Did you purchase any of these capsule items, or did you get any great deals? Please let me know in the comments section below! Happy shopping!
