The Best Loungewear & Sleepwear from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Today, I’m covering one of the most popular parts of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year: loungewear & sleepwear! We have all been living in cozy and comfortable pieces since March, that is why I rounded up my favorite pieces for women / men that are under $ 30, $ 40 and $ 50. I also included a few items that have a higher price tag (i.e., robes), but that are totally worth getting right now, rather than at full price once the sale ends.

First Summer in New York


Yesterday my fiancé and I celebrated eleven months in New York City. Time flies even during a pandemic, and now it’s official – I’ve experienced all four seasons since moving from the sunshine state to the big apple last September. While I was convinced that I would miss Florida’s tropical weather, that has not been the case… You might ask: how come? Because the forecast has read 90+ degrees more times than I had anticipated.

One of the silver linings of this unprecedented “summer in quarantine” has been spending time with B. I’ve mentioned before that during our relationship, we endured about a year of long distance while he finished his mater’s degree. Now, after spending the last four months sheltering together inside of our apartment, I can honestly say that I prefer this over not seeing him for weeks at a time.

With gatherings limited and travel restricted, we got creative: we ordered take-out once a week (mostly Thai or Greek food), enjoyed cocktails in the terrace (almost every night), rode bikes around the city, watched tons of Netflix series (we both enjoyed “The Spy” and “Unauthorized Living”), took the pups on longer walks, and handled lots of wedding tasks.

I love the conscious process of slowing down on a daily basis, and of admiring the beauty around me (something that I credit my older dog for teaching me more than seven years ago). The extra free time that we’ve been gifted with during this pandemic, has allowed me to practice more of that. And just because Summer 2020 has been different in more ways than one, it doesn’t mean we can’t get creative and do more of what we love.

OUTFIT DETAILS: HAT: Straw Hat | TOP: Smocked Crop-Top | PANTS: High Waist Raw Hem Denim | SHOES: Mint Heels | BRACELET: Cuff Bracelet
