This collage made me laugh because I basically wear all of this at some point every day. Forget everything else I posted, this is what I wear! The funny thing is these are not the items that excite me when I go shopping. I don’t typically go underwear shopping, I go shopping and pick up a pair of underwear. You know what I mean? Now, when they are on SALE, it’s a different story! I can get excited about underwear when it’s on SALE!! It’s my one time to stock up on undies, socks, bras and more.
One thing that hasn’t changed with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that they are still offering the FAVORTIES of their customers in the basics category, like bras, underwear, pj’s. Maybe that’s because there are a lot of people (like me) who wait to buy until these items go on sale!
Here are the best items in each category:
This continues to be one of my favorite bras of all time (remember when I posted about way back here), and I’m not the only one! It has over 2,200 reviews with 4.5 stars! Am I the only one who clings to a favorite bra and wears it for months? I only wash it after I’ve eaten at a Mexican food restaurant, and my bra smells like fajitas. Ok, I just grossed myself out. Clearly, I need a new bra.
Did you just look at this picture and get warm, cozy, and happy feelings? I did. There are not many objects that make me happy, but this sweater, without a doubt, makes me happy. It makes me think of coffee in the morning, watching football at night with my husband, curling up in my bed to read a good book, and going out to the bus stop in the fall… all the places I wear this sweater. If you’ve never owned a Barefoot Dreams sweater, do yourself a favor and order one. I’m not usually like this about “things”, but I promise you, you will be like, “Oh, now I get it”. Btw, I ordered a few extra last year, and they have really come in handy for Christmas and birthday gifts.
Did you just have the cozy, warm, happy feelings all over again? My sis and bestie were laughing with each other about how far they’ve pushed the wearing these out in public limits -ha! Well, when they’re that comfy and warm and have a soled bottom, who can blame them? I purchased the grey color to match my new grey Barefoot Dreams cardigan.
The only draw back to Hanky Pankys is the price, which is precisely why the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to buy them! Btw, did you know Hanky Panky makes all cotton gusset undies? During these hot summer days, I’m needing all cotton -ha!
So when I wash my bra (yes, I said bra not bras -ha! see above), I use this exact lingerie bag. So why is it so big you ask? Because I wash all my t-shirts in this lingerie bag to avoid getting holes in them, AND I wash my Barefoot Dreams items in the bag, too! So you can imagine how much use this bag gets, and it’s held up really well!
These have been my pajamas for years! I like them because they stay cool at night, since they are all cotton! I find that the stretchy pajamas and the silky pajamas make me sweat. These feel just like sheets, so they get softer and softer over time!
These are still by far my favorite no-show socks. I stocked up on white AND black this year. I like to wear the black with my black Nikes and my black high tops.
Now, two really great clothing wardrobe staples:
I fell in love with this comfy Rag and Bone long sleeve tee. I can get excited about this kind of basic because I will wear the snot out of this thing. I love the open back, the feminine neckline and the fact that it’s not see through! And it didn’t show my bra straps! See why I’m going to wear it all the time? Oh snap, I just saw that you can also get it in black!
This sweater is a wardrobe staple, too! You can wear this with practically anything- jeans, legging, slacks, or tuck it into a skirt! It’s super flattering with the high low effect and a side slit that prevents any unwanted pull around the hip area. And, thankfully, the side slit isn’t too high, so you don’t have to worry about skin showing on the side.
Now for two fun finds! These are NOT wardrobe staples, but they are really cute!
I mean, how cute is the back and sleeve on this sweater?! This sweater is all cotton, so it’s not even a stitch itchy! Yes, please! I love to throw in some pink here and there in my wardrobe!
Such a cute dress, right? I love that it defines the waistline, but it doesn’t hug the middle! It’s also very versatile because you could wear this to work, to a fun night out, or even to a funeral. Tell me that’s not versatile -ha!
