Kids Nordstrom Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Sale is a great time to get your kids new clothing and accessories for the up coming school year. The first items I always get mine are winter coats. It’s the perfect time to get them a nice coat for a discounted rate. The second is shoes, do your kids feet grow at an astronomical rate?! Here are some of my favorite picks that are currently still in stock.

  1. Boys North Face – my son has this exact coat from last year, perfect for the play ground on cold days
  2. Girls North Face – this jacket is super cozy and love the color, my daughter has this from last years sale and it was wonderful for the cool fall days

  4. Native Shoes – I love the blue and orange colors for fall, if you live somewhere where it stays warm this would be a great fall shoe
  5. Nike Shoes – every boy need a good pair of athletic shoes and the velcro is just a bonus on the busy mornings
  6. Vans – who doesn’t love a pair of vans, these cute pink high tops are a must

As I am writing this there is  actually a Hallmark Christmas movie on in the back ground, Christmas in July! I have narrowed it down to 15  home items I would love or have!


  1. Recipe Box – this box not only can hold your favorite recipes but will look cute on your kitchen counter. It would be a great gift for your favorite chef!

  3. Wine Rack – Any wine lovers out there?!? Such a simple and classic wine rack that would look great in any space.
  4. Soy Candle – candles make such a great gift and I love the uniqueness of the concrete holder. Plus it could double as a planter when the candle is gone.

  7. Fringe Pillow – this pillow also comes in grey or navy. It would be a great addition to a living room or bedroom.

  13. Vase – You can never go wrong with a beautiful vase! This would look fabulous with some simple greenery in it, on a mantle, or entry way table.
  14. Diffuser – Essential Oil lovers, this diffuser is gorgeous in person! I just got this for our bed room. It is glass, so if you have little ones make sure it is keep out of their reach.
  15. Blanket – This is the softest most coziest blanket!! I got this in the sale last year and gifted several of them, everyone loved them!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of my favorite sales of the year! The sale includes new fall styles, fall is my favorite time of year and to style. During the sale I like to go in with a game plan, first I set a budget that works for me. Second, I pick a couple of items I want to invest in. This year I am looking for a pair of black or grey booties and a new handbag. Lastly, I always stock up on items that I use all year such as, clarisonic brushes, any make up or skincare, my favorite panties, bras and a few workout clothing pieces.

When to shop:

Early access is Thursday, July 12th, this is for Nordstrom card holders. The sale is open to the public on Friday, July 20th.

How to shop:

The best way to shop is online, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns. If you have a Nordstrom close to you, you can pick up in store, to ensure you get what you want. You can then try the items on there and return right away. I recommend if you unsure of sizing, order a couple of sizes in that item.

I will be going to Nordstrom on the 12th and provide a try on session in my Instagram (@midweststyled) stories. I will provide sizing info on the items there, as well as below.

Spring Dresses

Once March comes around and we start getting teased with semi warmer weather I start looking for new spring items! I am more of a jeans and t-shirt kid of girl but I do like to dress up now and then. As some middle ground I have found some great more casual dresses that I want to share.

First up is this navy flower midi dress. I love the fit of this dress, the top is fitted and the flares out through the waist and leggings. It is flattering on every body type! This dress can up dressed up or down. With cooler weather I would wear it with a denim jacket or sweater.

Second up is this simple black tank dress. The versatility of this dress is endless! I paired mine with this beautiful blue kimono. You could also pair it with a sweater, denim jacket, a moto jacket or bomber jacket too! This dress does fit tight, I sized up one size. This dress comes in a variety of colors. Plus, for any pregnant mamas out there it would look adorable with a bump!

Hi, I’m Chelsey! I am an accountant turned stay at home mom to two littles, Emerson 4 and Scarlett 1. I have been happily married to my college sweetheart for 9 years. I am a small town Nebraska girl that moved to Kansas City, to Houston, and now back to Kansas City!! We are so happy to be back in the midwest close to our dear family and friends.

Now that I have been home with my kiddos for almost 4 years, I have had the desire to pursue something more. I love to shop, from clothes to home decor, I wanted to an outlet to share this passion.

Here is where I plan to share inspiration for fashion and lifestyle. I hope to help other find items they would like, I have always wanted to be a personal shopper!

Hope you all enjoy! XOXO
