The NSale is Opening to the Public!

Happy almost NSale!!! If you don’t have the Nordstrom credit card and have been waiting for the day that the sale opens to the public, the day is almost here! Starting tomorrow, well tonight at midnight if you’re a night owl, you will be able to shop the sale and I am so excited for you! There are so many great items included in the sale this year – you will look like a million bucks and not spend anywhere near that. Ha! I love using the NSale to stock up on cozy fall pieces for my wardrobe and also staples that I keep in my closet year round, like my favorite tee!

Cardigan Looks!

Pink with Plaid

These first two looks are super similar but I just think they are so great for work and meetings (I have a lot of these days) so I decided to get both of them. I love this first one because it has all my favorite colors! You guys know I’m a sucker for all things white, light blue, and blush! Let’s start with the cardigan. It comes in a few different colors and it’s perfect for summer/transitioning into fall because it’s really lightweight. It’s also the absolute best cardigan for layering. I’ve always gotten frustrated in the past when I’ve seen these layered looks on other bloggers and then ordered them to find that I looks like I’ve gained about 20 pounds. Ha! It’s just hard to layer clothes when you’re not super tiny. At least while wearing sweaters. But what I love about this cardigan is that it’s so lightweight that it doesn’t add bulk when you layer it with things. So I got it in both this blush color and in gray which will you will see in the look below.

Then I got this Rails plaid top that’s on sale for under $100. Anyone who has checked out the Rails flannel or button-down before knows they’re super expensive! Almost always over $150. And that’s because the cut is just so amazing and flattering and the quality is so good! This button down is seriously so soft I could sleep in it.


Neutral Blue and Gray

Like I mentioned above, this outfit is very similar to the first one. I just was so psyched when I saw how good this cardigan looked layered that I decided to do another layered look. Once again this cardigan comes in a few different colors and I recommend getting a couple if you need a good cardigan for this fall and even for summer nights. And then I just got this blue and white striped top. It was a really good price and I thought the blue and gray looked really nice together. It looks like that top sold out now, but I love this one as an alternative for this look!


I added these brown loafers that I wear all the time to the look! When I signed up for just fab to get them, I think I got them for $10 because I was a new member. And I honestly wear them at least three times a week. They aren’t apart of the NSale but they are a great deal.


My favorite white tee ever is on sale for $12!!!!!!! Well I shouldn’t say white tee because it comes in a bunch of colors too! I have about 5 of the white version. Ha… no really.  I would say I’m between a size small and medium. The one I’m wearing in these photos is a size medium. It’s seriously such a cute and great basic tee that I plan on ordering multiple in white and every other color.

I have gotten so many comments in the past asking me for my favorite scoop neck white tee and I didn’t have one at the time, now I do and it is this one!!! It’s actually a “hybrid” rounded v-neck which is just look a scoop and I love it! They have the absolute best cut and they are just so perfect to throw on with a pair of jeans and loafers and run out the door. Some of you think it’s comical how often I wear these T-shirts. But it’s just because I stick with what works!!!

These jeans are a tad different than the ones I am wearing in the photo above but wow what an incredible deal for Mother Denim. This is one of those brands that I recommend splurging on. They are SO flattering.

If that is slightly out of your price range, you all know that I LOVE these ones – they are incredible. They are not apart of the NSale, but I wanted to add them here because they are still so affordable. They are so stinking flattering! They’re high-waisted and insanely comfortable! There honestly my favorite go-to jeans right now. They come in this light wash and in a dark wash. I have both and both are amazing! I’m telling you – get these jeans! They’re under $20 and you will not regret it. I’m wearing a size 8 and I figured that out after sizing chart. However, for reference I’ll tell you guys that I’m normally a size 29 in jeans if that helps.

The Most Comfortable Outfits!!!

Okay so I have to say that these outfits are some of the most comfortable ones that I wear and it’s definitely because every piece is just soooo cozy! Ahh! The lounge jogger pants are high-waisted and so comfortable! I am obsessed. They are only $38! After I bought them I wore them for two days straight! And that’s not an exaggeration! I even napped in them one day because they’re so comfortable! And I love that they are dressy enough that I can wear them in a sweater like I am below but I can also dress them up even more with a lace Cami or dress it down with the white-tee like I did in the side-by-side photos below. I’m telling you, if you haven’t gotten these joggers yet please get them! You will truly love them so so so so much!

You’ve definitely seen me wear this cowl neck sweater a bunch, I think I have it in five colors! The rusty color seen here has been coming in and out of stock through the NSale so make sure that you check for it. I also LOVE the Oatmeal Heather, I think it is my favorite of them all and it is in stock as I am typing this!

I got this cami from a previous Nsale, but they are the exact style of these ones!! The print is just a tad different. I am definitely considering order another one even though they are so similar – or maybe even the solid black or white! These outfits are SO cute for fall. I truly love them and how comfy they are is the icing on top!


I’ve shared these Nordstrom Moonlight Dream Pajamas a handful of times the last few years, and that’s because they are definitely one of my very favorite pajamas that I own. I got them for the hospital for after Riley was born and they are seriously so comfortable. Trust me when I tell you that you want them! I have had mine for 2.5 years and they still look and feel amazing. Plus they are on sale for only $39!

For all you pregnant and new mamas:  I highly recommend these for PJs to wear after your baby is born. The button up makes them perfect for breast-feeding and so soft. Believe me, if you’re pregnant these are just probably going to be your favorite pajamas ever. Definitely get some while they’re on sale!


Happy NSale Shopping!

  1. Hi Ali –
    I’ve followed you on Instagram and really enjoy your posts and content, but I’ve tried to DM you a few times and never receive a response which is pretty disappointing. If you’re unable to read and respond to DMs on Instagram can you disable? That way we won’t write you via that channel.

    Stay safe!

    1. Hi Shelley! Thanks so much for coming over to my blog and following me on Instagram! I also truly do appreciate your DM ‘s. However, I get thousands of them today and I do respond to a good chunk every day. If I made it my full-time job to spend eight hours a day trying to respond to everybody, I sadly still wouldn’t get to everybody.

      But even though I’m not able to get to everybody, I try to get to as many as I can without it consuming my day and taking away too much time from my family. I’ve always told people in my Instagram stories that if they really need to ask me something and get a response to come to my blog and comment which is exactly what you did so thank you for doing that! Feel free to come here anytime you need a response!

      I also read more DM’s than I am able to comment back to. If I see a ton of people asking the same question, I answer it in my stories to get to as many people as possible! Like I did today telling people about the 4 minute show my kids watch,

      Thanks for understanding!

  2. Hey Ali! I finally scored a pair of those awesome Moonlight PJs you rave about! I’ve been eying them since you first talked about them after Reily! Excited to get them in the mail…they’ll be perfect for staying safe and cuddling up at home 🙂 I would love to know, for reference, what size you wear in them? Fingers crossed mine fit because they are sold out now! Thank you for being so humble and kind and sharing your life and sweet family with us! You inspire me daily! – Rachel

  3. Hi Ali! I love you style so much and love following along with your precious family and garden adventures. I just want to share a friend’s website. She’s a garden ranger and if you need a garden consultation, she’s available! If you could help support her small business 🙂 !

  4. Hi Ali – came here as you suggested since you miss many DM’s. I sent you one, commented on your FB and also commented just now on your recent post. I was born in Long Beach, but moved to OC when I was 2 and have never left. I’ve lived all over OC – Anaheim, Mission Viejo, Fountain Valley, Aliso Viejo and now am in Cypress. I have friends all over too and I work for CPS which has me all over the county as well. While I think Laguna Niguel is very nice I don’t think it’s the right place for you guys. I’d like to suggest Seal Beach or just a couple miles inland from that is a very cute little community in Los Alamitos called Rossmoor. Both Sea Beach and Rossmoor have a small town feel, and are just on the other side of Long Beach, yet still in OC that I think either of those could be a good fit for you. I highly suggest looking at Rossmoor!! The homes are amazing!!

  5. I love San Clemente! Laguna Hills is great. Also check out Portillo Hills and Foothill Ranch.

    For food I wanted to tell you about some vegan places:
    Hug Life (ice cream), Urth Cafe, Flower Child, and Meads Green Door Cafe

  6. Hi Ali.

    Sending this about OC spots.We live in Fountain Valley, next to Huntington Beach. You’ll really like the Laguna Area. I’d also check out San Clemente and Corona Del Mar.One of my friends grew up in San Clemente and she loved it. I love Orange County. I feel like we get a bad wrap often, but most places here are wonderful. The old town Orange area is adorable too!

    Good luck!!


  7. Hey Ali! I live in OC and wanted to let you know about a hidden gem area that you might like. There is a new community close to Dana Point, San Clemente, and San Juan Capistrano called Rancho Mission Viejo. It’s super family and dog friendly, close to the beach, the homes are new, it’s super safe and clean, even has a farm, and has so many hiking trails and lots to do. I’ve lived in CA my whole life in both OC & SD and it’s my favorite place I’ve lived. Good luck with your home search ☺️ (Please note this is not Mission Viejo or Rancho Santa Margarita – it’s an unincorporated area called Rancho Mission Viejo).

    1. Don’t worry about moving during covid. We moved back to Chicago at the end of April from Boston area. The biggest challenge was not getting our things delivered for 3 weeks. Since you’re moving close by, you can bring toys for your kids in your car. We had to ship toys so our daughter.

  8. Hi! Just wanted to stop by and recommend you checking out El Segundo. It’s right next door to Manhattan Beach and it’s the best. Very quiet, kid centered small town with quite a few breweries and fun restaurants. It’s a little less pretentious than manhattan beach and the houses tend to have more of a yard than MB also. I grew up in the valley and am so obsessed with raising my family in the South Bay now. You’re also only a 5 mins drive to manhattan beach! Hope this helps 🙂

  9. I have a friend, @makingmomeasy (Tonya) on instagram. She was in the process of renovating their “dream home” in Manhatten beach but ended up moving to Encino for better school opportunities for her son’s. If you scroll through her IG you can see the remodel as well as her designers IG’s. The MB house is beautiful as is her new home in Encino. She has also lived many years in MB. Mostly right on the strand. Good Luck.

  10. Love all your picks!!
    For house hunting look in Ladera Ranch! The best community for littles! So many amenities to use and close to the big freeways and the beach still. It’s a little piece of suburbia in South OC. ☺️

  11. “This task is 100% genuine and it is actually a vital job that features much more than simply earning money to smoke weed,” American Cannabis discussed in a launch regarding the work listing. “If you believe that’s the whole entire extent of the job, after that this could not be for you.” The consumer must stay in a state in The United States or even Canada where health care marijuana is legal and have “significant know-how of weed to enlighten our audiences.” “The applicant needs to be actually in good condition and also healthy in general to carry out marijuana product evaluates on a regular basis,” the job summary explained.

  12. Hi!
    I would wait to move after pandemic. Also , didn’t you guys wanted to stay in that house for a long time? When you first bought it? What changed your mind? I think no yard it be very hard for you guys. You guys are always on your backyard. It’s going to be hard for kids. I would get a house with a yard

  13. I want to love Ali. But I find it so hard sometimes. Like do you have actual diagnosed anxiety ? Or are you just one of those people who just use the word loosely ? That’s the vibe I get. And with everything going on in the world listening to you daily ramble on about selling your perfect house is just getting annoying. And you have two kid’s ?? What help do you need with the kids considering what your schedules are especially right now? Real world problems over there 🙄

  14. Hi Ali! I’m commenting about your insta stories where you asked what you should do with the flower petals! I’ve been following @themilkymudra for awhile and she makes gorgeous keepsake jewelry that has personal things in it like breastmilk, flower petals, hair clippings,, etc. I think making a ring or necklace that had some pieces of those flowers would be precious. Check her out!
