Well, I made it to Atlanta, and at 8:00 am, my sister and I will be at Nordstrom to shop the sale. It will be comical since my sister is not a huge shopper. She and my mother try very hard never to go shopping with me because they know I’ll be there most of the day.

Last year, I think we left the sale around 2 pm, and we were both exhausted. The funny thing is that my sister bought a ton of clothing, and my brother-in-law threatened not to let me come back this year. Hahaha! I like to buy myself one investment piece that I will keep for years, so I look for a nice handbag, jewelry, or a pair of sunglasses. I try to pick out something that isn’t fashion since that can go out of style, and I’ve wasted my money. Here are a couple of items that I’m considering.

Honestly, I’m not wowed by anything this year, but I might change my mind once I see the items in person. Which do you think would be a great investment piece that I could keep for years?

Since I’m off to shop the Nordstrom sale, I thought it was appropriate to have on something I’ve bought from there. This Navy Floral Split-Neck Shirt by Caslon (a brand I like shopping at Nordstrom) is stylish and comfortable. You will hear me repeat that term a lot since that is what I look for in my clothing. I love the navy floral print and the lightweight fabric, which isn’t see-through. I’m wearing a medium, and the relaxed fit is roomy but not baggy.

Here is a photo that shows you the length of the shirt. It is long, so you could wear it easily with leggings or jeggings if you wanted.

I could have worn jewelry that would stand out from the blouse, but instead, I chose to wear blue jewelry to blend in.

I love these jeans, but I mistakenly ordered the Curvy Girlfriend Jeans when I should have ordered the regular Girlfriend Jeans. I thought the jeans would not be baggy since I was ordering a size 8, but I was wrong. A relaxed fit is great, but these are too baggy on me, and they border on looking sloppy. This is the pair I meant to order, and since they are on sale, I’m placing my order today.

I have resisted the toe ring sandals, but when researching the Foot Issues post, I decided to order these Cole Haan Slides, and I’m glad I did. These are surprisingly comfortable, and the toe ring helps hold them on your foot. I don’t like some slides since they can go flying across the room when you walk. Lol! These are on sale, 40% off, and I’m going to order the Ivory color, which is 50% off. I always have trouble finding white/ivory sandals that I like for summer, and I think these will be perfect.

Gurl’s wish me luck since I’ll be heading into the heart of Atlanta. I’m a country gurl, and Atlanta traffic is not friendly to us bumpkins. Lol! Stayed tuned for my post tomorrow; I hope to get a few of my finds on Thursday’s This or That post.
