all right, gang, today’s the day to share Nordstrom dressing room diaries with kelly and beth. last saturday my new daughter-in-law joined me for a day of shopping, fun and of course lunch. the day started early as we piled into my car and drove down to atlanta to shop the Nordstrom anniversary sale. the above outfit is what i wore for a jam-packed day of shopping – joggers, shoes, and linen shirt.
so many of you have written and shared how important it is for me to take care of myself while watching over mr. style. and i couldn’t agree more. self-care is a number one priority for me because if i’m not taking care of myself how can i take care of others? while my children were growing up my mother and i always made time for a girls day out filled with lots of giggles, power shopping, and lunch. and now i have the privilege of sharing similar days with my d-i-l kelly. don’t worry about mr. style as one of my dear friends stopped by to say hello with a frozen lemonade in hand. two of my kiddos spent the afternoon golfing while kelly and i shopped ’til we dropped. it was a fun day all around for the djalalis!
but i wanted to share a birds-eye view of the dressing room where kelly and i tried on a few of the items we found in-store. not everything made it home. yes, i showed some restraint! stay tuned to the video where i style the clothes i purchased. but i also spent some time shopping online as there’s a broader selection than in-store. those items should be delivered in a day or two. fingers crossed! as soon as i have those in my hot little hands, i’ll share another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post. remember today; it’s still early access to the sale so you must have a Nordstrom card to shop. but the sale opens to the public this friday, july 19th.
initially, i tried on a size 8 in the denim then sized down to a 6.

kelly is a petite, the dress in a petite extra small but we both thought she should go down one size as the armholes gaped.
Nordstrom dressing room diaries with kelly and beth. the cashmere sweater and pants made it into my shopping cart. kelly is on the hunt for this dress in a smaller size. but the blazer came home with her.
kelly is trying on AG Jeans for the first time. she loved the fit. Vince was also a new brand to kelly, and she was favorably impressed with this striped cashmere sweater. the anniversary sale is a great way to ease into luxury brands if the sticker price is a shock to your system.
Nordstrom dressing room diaries with kelly and beth. the Spanx leggings fit like a dream! but they were a struggle to get on. the oversized sweater is from Free People. while i liked this outfit, neither item came home with me. kelly, on the other hand, loved her outfit and purchased both sweater and blue jeans.
Nordstrom dressing room diaries with kelly and beth. kelly loved the Spanx faux leather leggings. me too! both of us bought a pair. the black pants are now mine too due to a flattering fit. and kelly decided to purchase the cashmere sweater.
menswear-inspired garments are on trend this fall. ruched sleeves too.
this single-breasted blazer is lightweight and the perfect transition piece from summer to fall. i styled this in the video, so stay tuned!
my love for coats, jackets, and blazers runs deep. here are a few coats i tried on that i loved but didn’t need.
Barbour is a luxury brand that’s worth every penny.
Sam Edelman is known for his fabulous shoes. now he’s adding coats into the mix. this single-breasted wool-blend coat comes in three colors – black, yellow and blue.
the afternoon ended with a lovely lunch that included a glass of chilled champagne and red wine. cheers!
there you have it, ladies! a fun-filled day spent with loved ones. let me know what you’ve found this year at the Nordstrom anniversary sale. happy wednesday! it’s time to go put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
