Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! Now that we are half way through summer break, I feel like we are in that perfect spot of summer! Baseball and kids’ activities have finished and now we get to have lazier days and more opportunities for impromptu summer fun! Anyway, this week’s Friday Favorites is a round up of some of the best summer deals going on now! Between the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Amazon Prime Day and summer clearance at all the stores, there are a lot of DEALS!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Are you a Nordstrom card holder? If so, you can start shopping the Anniversary Sale today!  I try not to go overboard during this sale, but there are some items that I always look out for including kids’ shoes and clothing, fall boots (for me) and a fall sweater or cardigan (if it’s a great deal). You can see what I bought last year HERE. The items we purchased last year really held up well, so I will be looking for similar items in bigger sizes:)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kids Picks

I noticed that the same zip up jacket I got at last year’s sale for my daughter is on sale again. It was a staple last fall.

Several styles of VAN’s sneakers are also going to be part of the sale! Perfect chance to grab these shoes while they are on sale!

Also, converse shoes will be on sale! I hope these shoes don’t sell out too quickly. Sometimes, you need to check back often on Nordstrom’s site as items become back in stock!

Kids’ Converse Shoes

Last fall, I got my daughter a pair of premium jeans during the Anniversary Sale and she wore them on repeat. I’d rather have a couple of nice pairs of pants, then one for every day of the week. So, I am willing to spend a little more on jeans.

I love these tulip cuff style jeans.

These Joe’s jeggings are really cute and practical too!

My 10 year old son really is the one who needs some new things. He was able to get by in the same clothes the last two years, but he has seen grown a lot! He pretty much lives in athletic wear, and I don’t see a ton of Anniversary sale items in that category.

There are a few Under Armour tops including this one and this one. Good deals considering Under Armour can be so expensive.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kids’ Picks

A Few Nordstrom Sale Picks for Women

Honestly, I usually get sidetracked by the kids’ clothing that I don’t look too hard for me. However, there are always good sales on shoes and I am eyeing a few pairs!

Converse shoes aren’t just for kids. These adult converse styles on sale too! I’ve been eyeing these Shoreline Converse since last year’s sale, so I’m planning to order them. These shoes sell out really fast (at least in my size).

Also, last year, I missed the sale on these shoes and I don’t want to miss out again. I love having a pair of slip on shoes that is more dressed up than tennis shoes but not as dressy as flats or heels. These are perfect for running around town!

This new wedge bootie style is SO cute too! There is a little feminine details to this style than the pair above. Both are so fun!

I might just stick to shoes for me, but there is a ton of clothing and accessories on sale too! What items are you considering during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

World Market Patio Sale

Speaking of sales, I stopped by World Market the other day and discovered some huge clearance deals! I went looking for a new patio umbrella (great deal on umbrellas!) and noticed all of World Market patio furniture and decor was 50% off. This is the umbrella I ended up purchasing for 50% off!

I ended up ordering this indoor/outdoor bench. I’m hoping it will work out for our dining room table. I’ve wanted a bench for a long time but our table is very long so I haven’t found one until now.

Since they didn’t have the bench in store, I ordered online and I am patiently waiting for it to arrive. I’ll keep you posted if it works out. If you are in the market for a new patio table, chairs or accessories be sure to check out the World Market sale!

Homegoods Finds

I also stopped by Homegoods for the first time in a long time! Everything looked so good since I hadn’t been in so long.

My favorite find was this wire basket with a wood base. It is the exact thing I was looking for to corral all of our most used spices and oils. It really makes meal prep easy when you have your most used ingredients handy.

I also spotted a ton of unique lanterns.

Wishing I would have gotten this cool, vintage looking lantern. What a great piece for an outdoor space!

Lanterns are one of my favorite home decor accessories. They look great in almost any room of the home. Plus, they are so versatile, you can move them around the house and get a whole new look.

Also, this week on the blog, I shared our review of the latest Kids Night in Box! This month was all about money and it was so fun (and educational!!).

    Love all of your picks! Those sneakers are adorable. Love the little spice/oil container you snagged at Home Goods too- I need to get one- have a great weekend Jaclyn 🙂

    Maybe this year I’ll finally get some Shorelines. Also maybe a Barefoot Dreams Cardigan. I got one another time but it’s not the right type and now it’s too big anyway!
