Excuse me while I try to recover from the shock of it being mid-August already?! Time has really been slipping away, and with the Nordstrom sale in full swing the past few weeks, it feels like it’s been going even faster! Today, I’m taking a break from NSALE content to share my 10 favorite things from July that you guys seemed to love, too. Leggings, skincare, shorts, cozy hoodies—it’s all here!
Ash’s Recent Bestsellers
My love for my vivomove HR from Garmin is everlasting. In fact, it grows stronger every month! We’ve written several posts about this amazing smartwatch and why we prefer it over the other popular options out there. I just love keeping track of not only my exercise, but my overall stress and general health!
THIS is the one I wear every day!
The OFFLINE tank top from aerie is the perfect tank top. No, really. It’s just thin enough, has the racer back, and is so versatile—you can wear it alone or with literally anything. I love it so much, actually, that I grabbed it in 4 colors in July (it comes in 11 total)! I take it in a size L.
Tan Luxe Butter
This stuff got me through a summer with minimal sun exposure! I love it because it’s not just a self-tanner; it’s also a truly moisturizing body butter that keeps your skin hydrated while giving you gradual, natural-looking sun kissed skin. It’s rich but somehow very lightweight, and the best part? Totally fragrance free!
Live In Leggings
Question: Did the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale even happen if you didn’t get a pair of Zella Live In Leggings?! Every year, these are on sale and it seems like, every year, I reup on them! They’re just the perfect legging—high-waisted, so comfortable, and great for working out or just lounging around. I take them in size M.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again—Colleen Rothschild’s Mandelic acid is the unsung hero of all her products. We hear from you guys all the time about how much you love it, and it makes us so happy because it really is the best! Mandelic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid that gently exfoliates dull, dead, surface-layer skin. By doing so, it also helps to clear acne, prevent blemishes, and leave your skin with an overall glow.
Mom Jean Shorts
The. Best. Shorts. Ever. I am so happy I got these back in July. Abercrombie really figured out the perfect fit for mom jean shorts, and these are it! I’ve worn them approximately 100 times since purchasing them. Took them in a size 32!
I love my CC+ Cream, especially during the summer. Since it’s made with SPF 50, I feel super safe wearing it and only it as my foundation and staying protected from the sun while looking good! CC+ Cream is formulated with hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and more so it’s not just full coverage, but also helps in hydration and disguising wrinkles and fine lines. I wear it in the shade Medium.
Face Oil No. 9
Another Colleen Rothschild product I love and use daily is her Nº9 face oil. It combines 9 oils total to give your skin so much hydration and leave your face looking luminous in the best way. It’s not at all greasy, either. I wear it under makeup and no one can ever tell!
Happy Henley Hoodie
This hoodie! You guys, it’s SO GOOD. One of the reviews says it’s “a cloud in a sweatshirt,” and I couldn’t agree more. It’s the coziest thing I’ve bought in a while and am tempted to get it in every other color. Just be sure to size down as it’s an oversized fit (I took a size M)!
Another amazing aerie purchase in July were these sleep joggers. If the hoodie is a cloud in a sweatshirt, these are a cloud in a sweatpant. So, basically, buy both of them and you will feel like you’re a literal walking cloud. Of course, wearing these to bed may make getting up that much harder–don’t say I didn’t warn you (I took them in size L)!
