Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Top 5
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on, ending August 5th. I’ve shared my fashion picks here, and I wanted to round up a few things from the home sale as well. Honestly I scoured the home section and didn’t really find a ton of things I loved, so I landed on 5 things that I think are good buys.
We recently got All-Clad Stainless Steel pans and I totally get the hype. They’re by far the best pots and pans we’ve ever had. Definitely an investment, but the quality is really impressive, the type of thing you will have forever.
This faux fur throw looks a lot like the one I have from Anthro and it has really good reviews. I love the luxe shades for fall too.
We have this rug in our laundry room and I absolutely love it. The colors are really beautiful in person.
