I don’t love back to school frenzy but I secretly love all the prep and new gear! The kids share this joy with me. I bought the kids new Trapper Keepers, backpacks and jeans from Walmart. I had a blast from the past when I bought the Trapper Keepers home. I used to have one in junior high. Such good memories staying organized and “cool.” Now, my kids get to experience it.
See my picks below for starting off the year right:
Girls backpack // Girls Jeggings // Girls $3 tanks // Girls tees // // Boys backpacks // Trapper Keeper and this one / Notebooks // My cardigan // Boys jeans // Brooks’ shirt // Boys shoes // Boys Henley // Desktop Calendar //

I went to Nordstrom near us and previewed the sale. I brought Reid and Levi and it was fun! Reid picked up some shorts and I picked up two Vince cardigans. I realized after today, if you just get one item, let it be the VINCE CARDIGAN. Which is your fave?
Shop my insta below:
These sneakers are so cute! // This faux leather jacket comes in brown and great with black jeans. Tie Dye Sweater, my girls LOVE these colors! // NASA tee // My second daughter loves this puffer for our trip to the Blue Ridge mountains // Super soft fleece sweatshirt for play or travel! // Smocked top // Atalie wanted her own tall boots // Cute North Face jacket //
How cute is this blazer for church? // Insulated boots for winter, think ahead! // Water resistant coat // Two piece pajamas! // Stretch jeans // Polo in black and gray! // Converse in white and black // Tee for $9.90! // Boy’s tie dye tee shirt
This wool blend wrap coat sold out fast but it will be back. I think lots of people in the beginning buy multiple sizes and will eventually return one.
This True and Co bra is $28 and SO incredibly soft just as they say!
This Barefoot Dreams Cardigan is incredibly soft.
I can’t believe the biggest shopping day of the year is among us. Today at 3am EST early Access shopping opens for Icon level cardmembers. Not sure what level cardholder that you are? Log onto your Nordstrom account for more information. I will do try-on’s tomorrow sharing my favorite pieces. Don’t forget, if you’re in between sizes, get two, reach for investment pieces, those will go first, buy now and return sizes later. Items go fast, so if there’s something you’re eying add to cart and check out. I’ve shopped many times and an item will disappear out of the cart because I waited too long!
Hope those tips help you shop most efficiently. It’s also a great time to shop for Christmas gifts. I’ve been shopping this sale since 2015, and still love the rag + bone boots I scored many years ago. Forward any questions, email@example.com.
Today is the day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview! I noticed a lot of similar items from last year on the NSALE this year, so if you missed it, here’s your second chance! I have my eye on the Clare V tote, True and co. bras, this Free people sweater in beige, knit ruana for me and Barefoot dream blanket for gifts. I’ll round up some of my beauty and shoe faves on upcoming posts.

It’s my favorite time of year, but I also feel like it’s halfway through the summer and I get a little panicky. We have a summer bucket list, but have barely made a dent, can you relate? I rounded up some comfortable patriotic outfits for staying in or going out. Stay tuned for NSALE coverage coming up.
Which is your favorite?
We moved into a house with a pool at the end of February, and honestly, it’s been great! We find ourselves outside so much of the time because of it, and doesn’t every mom want that? Due to all this outside time, I’ve been branching out, trying to find different things to eat, play with, and do outside. And if the doing coincides with the eating, then all the better! Enter the snow cone machine and syrups from Walmart! They absolutely love snow cones after our trip to Kauai two years ago, but I definitely didn’t like all the sugar and coloring usually found in snow cones. Surprisingly, the syrup I bought from Walmart doesn’t have the common red #40 or sugar. So far it’s been a huge hit, and is always a favorite at any party.
Also, to my friends with kids still in diapers, Walmart is a great go-to in a pinch! We were out of diapers this week and Walmart+ came to the rescue with a 2 hour delivery. Same with groceries and produce! Walmart+ always gives the option for same day delivery, and since “same day” are two of my favorite words, Walmart has quickly become a favorite. Don’t forget to sign up for Walmart+ HERE, free shipping, no order minimum.
Check your address to see if free delivery from your store is available at your address.($35 minimum. Restrictions apply.) I checked, and my address qualified, yay!
As for everything else like this rad snow cone machine, enjoy free next day or 2-day delivery. Don’t forget to sign up for Walmart+ HERE, free shipping, no order minimum required (excludes freight & Marketplace items). Sign up and let me know what you think. If you’re on the fence, start a free 15 day trial to try it out!
Big thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
