Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 :: My Top Picks & What’s in My Cart!!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Best of 2018

The day is finally here for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!  I mark this day on my calendar months in advance and look forward to it every year! For the past 10 years (not joking!) I would always stay up late waiting to see everything on the sale (it loads on the website at 3:00am my time).  I was fortunate enough this year to shop the sale a day early.  I am so excited to share with you all the amazing items I have found!!!

These are my top picks of the sale.  This is everything I purchased, plus many more things I plan to purchase (there are many items that are for online only).  Or items I think are amazing, but didn’t purchase because I have something similar at home.

Stay tuned to all my socials and here on the blog as I post more about the sale in the next week.  I plan on doing a try on haul on my IG stories of everything I purchased from the sale.

Here are my top picks and everything I am adding to my cart!

Instagram, Snapchat & Try-On

Hi!!  And Happy Sunday!! I know I haven’t been very good at doing blog post lately.  I’m so sorry!!  But I’ve been trying to keep up on Snapchat and Instagram.  Any time I post an outfit on Instagram you can always get all the details on my ‘shop my Instagram’ page here on my blog.

Today I’m recapping all my outfits on Instagram, Snapchat and anything I’ve tried on for you on my stories.

Cupcake & Cashmere Beverli Peplum Corset Tank

las vegas meet & greet

I tried this top on for you on my IG stories a few weeks ago.  I ended up wearing it to the meet & greet / Morphe store opening.  I’ve really been into wearing red lately.  It’s a fun/flirty but also very bold color.

TOP: Cupcakes & Cashmere | DENIM: Here | SHOES: Steve Madden | LIP: Morphe ‘Hotshot’

Am I Drunk Tank

Last weekend I went to Vegas. My sister, Jaclyn, had a meet & greet at the Morphe store opening.  A bunch of us went to be apart of the exciting weekend.  We all had so much fun!  Jaclyn’s picture was up on a huge billboard on the Vegas strip.  It was so surreal to see her face up on a billboard!  I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and was apart of the event.  I always love meeting everyone and putting faces with the names I see on social media :)

TANK: Here | SNEAKERS: Ash | SWEATSHIRT AROUND WAIST: Puma (on sale!) | LUGGAGE: Tumi

These sneakers are so cute & comfortable, I have had them for several months and wear them ALL the time!!  They run a little big.  I wear an 8.5 in shoes and I have these in size 38.

J.O.A. Tie Front Crop Top

This top is so super cute!  I love that it’s girly without looking like a little girls shirt.  I love the colors of this and the fit.  It gives a great waist.  It is cropped, so I am wearing my high waisted denim with it so my stomach doesn’t show.  Wear with flats, wedges or sneakers.  Perfect summer time outfit.

TOP: J.O.A. | DENIM: Frame High Waisted Denim

Topshop Lil Stretch Crop Tank

Zella Out & About 2 Crop Pants

This outfit has 3 pieces that I wear ALL the time!!

1- the joggers!  I wear them dressed up, dressed down, traveling, constantly!  I wear them with sneakers and a tee.  I’ve worn them to dinner and to Caleb’s baseball game.  Embarrassingly enough, I pretty sure I wear them 2-3 times a week for the past couple months.  They are so comfy and still look brand new!

2- the tank!  I have this tank in every color and it goes with so much.  It is cropped, so it’s perfect for anything that is high waisted.  This is the basic cropped tank every woman needs in her closet.  It feels very high quality and has washed like it is waaaaay more expensive.  It’s only $10!

3- the shoes! This is that staple shoe that goes with every outfit.  It’s the perfect strappy sandal.  It also comes in tan, which I have. It is a gorgeous color and goes with so much!

JOGGERS: Zella | TANK: Topshop | SHOES: Steve Madden | DENIM JACKET: Old, love This

NBD SWEET LUST BODYCON

Morphe Hotshop Liquid Lipstick

I was in Vegas back in April.  This is the dress I wore to the JLo concert.  The fit is ah-mazing!!!!  It was so comfortable to wear all night long.  And it comes in more colors :). But of course I had to go with the red!

DRESS: NBD Body Con | HOOP EARRINGS: Lana Jewelry, similar for less | LIP: Morphe ‘Hotshot’

wafy Nantes Off the Shoulder Top

I love the colors and the fit of this top.  When it arrived it was so small I thought it was for my daughter lol!  But it’s meant to stretch and fit your body perfectly. I  like it because it gives me a waist, with the fun ruffle at the bottom.  It’s the perfect amount of colorful and girly.

TOP: Wayf | DENIM: Frame High Waisted Denim

Madewell V-Neck Tee

A denim skirt and white tee is a staple in every closet.  This denim skirt has some fun details with the studs and the asymmetrical line in the front.  This v-neck tee is one of my favorite tees.  I have this tee in almost every color.  They wash and wear so great!  They are great quality, they have lasted longer than some of my more expensive tees.

SKIRT: Rails | V-Neck TSHIRT: Madewell

Topshop Scallop Camisole

This tank is a great basic!  The scalloped neckline makes it more interesting and fun.  This is great layered under jackets or wear it alone with jeans or a skirt.  I will definitely be getting this in more colors.

TOP: Topshop (sooo many colors) | DENIM: Frame High Waisted Denim

black one piece swimsuit

pool day!

POOL DAY!!!!  We stayed an extra day this past trip to Vegas so we could have some fun after all the work.  There are few things I love more than laying pool side (or on the beach) relaxing.  This crew is so fun, I would have a great time anywhere with them!

For everyone asking who the man in the photo is… That is Austin, we are friends and work together. I guess you could say he is my gay husband / work wife :)

ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT: Here (50% 0ff!!!!)

I got this swimsuit a couple months ago and just now wore it.  It’s amazing!!  I love the cut of it so much!!  And I just checked and it’s 50% off!

Love, Fire Cinch Side T-Shirt Dress

This dress is such an easy throw on dress for any day of the week.  I love taking dresses like this and wearing them with sneakers and an oversized denim jacket.  The fabric is very soft, the fit shows off curves in the best way possible.  It does run small, I had to size up to a medium.  This is a great dress and it’s only $42!  Can’t beat that!

DRESS: Love, Fire

Wayf Toulon Tiered Ruffle Top

This top just says fun to me! Whether I’m going to lunch or drinks with friends, I know if I show up in this top it’s going to be a fun time.  Plus because it’s more flowy in front I can eat a ton and no one will every know :)

topshop coverup

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on right now!  So many great pieces are on sale! This cover-up has been my favorite cover-up this spring.  It is currently on sale!!  Also loving this swimsuit!

These slides are also on sale and they are my constant go to.  They live by my front door, I put them on all the time for walking my dog, taking the kids to school.  They are the perfect throw on quickly shoe.

This and this are great basic tees I wear all the time.  And my favorite jeans are on sale!  This dress is great for summer, so many fun colors and a great fit. And this dress is a great staple to have in your closet.  Perfect on it’s own or layered.

I ordered this top a month ago.  Haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but can’t wait because it’s sooo cute!  I have these shoes and wear them a ton.  They go with so much!

Life Update & Why I Haven’t Been Blogging

rachel Barkules

I’m sure you have noticed that I have not been blogging for the past 3 months.  And my social media presence has been very minimal.

The reason is, I am currently going thru something extremely difficult in my personal life. I have been going thru this for a long time now.  But the sh*t really hit the fan around the holidays.  And things got waaaaay worse each day after that.  I tried to continue blogging.  But it became to difficult to fake a smile when I was hurting so bad on the inside.  I found it necessary to take a step back and focus on myself.

Although I am not going to share exactly what I am going thru right now (I will one day when I’m not in the middle of it), I can tell you this is one of the hardest things I have had to face.  I am personally going thru my own crisis, plus my loved ones are facing difficult times of their own.  My sister, Jaclyn, just got a divorce.  And my Grandma (my Mom’s Mom) had brain surgery 3 weeks ago.  To say the least, my entire family is really going thru a difficult time right now.

Thank you all so much for your love and support!  I have missed you all very much.  I really appreciate your understanding while I am going thru this private matter.  I love and appreciate every single one of you!!

I have always loved blogging.  It has been an amazing platform for me to express my love of clothes, makeup and accessories.  I have really missed it and plan to be returning to it very soon. :)

Much love! XO, Rachel
