    1. A heathered Socialite T-shirt dress designed with a playful slit and in such a soft fabric you might never take it off.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $23.90 (after the sale $49, available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors)

    2. A pair of the epic Zella Live In Leggings — arguably the best leggings to ever come into existence.

    Nordstrom

    I love these leggings so much I wrote a whole story about them. They're awesome and I highly, HIGHLY suggest you try them.

    Promising review: "I’ve had these for almost a year now and I cannot say enough good things! I live in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and I mostly do outdoor activities in these. I rock climb, hike 14’ers, scramble over ridges, run trails, and more in these and they never fail. They’re never too hot, they truly do wick sweat away. And NEVER ride down, 12-mile hikes and I don’t have to pull them up once. They’re better than my Lululemon Wunder Under leggings, and they constantly go on sale so you can get them for a great deal. Personally I sized down to an XS, I’m 5-foot-3 and 120 lb and usually wear a small." —Lolosilver12

    Price: $38.90 (after the sale $59, available in sizes XXS-XXL, 1X-3X, and in three colors)

    3. A pair of ultra-comfy Nordstrom Moonlight Dream Short Pajamas — the perfect outfit for your next all-day stay in bed.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $29.90 (after the sale $49, available in sizes XXS-XL, 1X-3X, and in four colors)

    And if you're into pants, this version is also on sale.

    4. A miraculous Olaplex Bond Maintenance System Set complete with a jumbo-size Hair Perfector No. 3 — a concentrated hair treatment capable of helping strengthen your hair from within to reduce breakage and improve the look and feel, a full-size Bond Maintenance Shampoo No. 4 — a moisturizing and reparative shampoo that'll help give you healthier, shinier, and more manageable hair, and a full-size Bond Maintenance Conditioner No. 5 — designed with a formula that helps restore, repair and hydrate your hair without adding excess weight.

    Nordstrom

    And if you're wondering if Olaplex is really worth all the hype — Olaplex No. 3 saved my hair, I can vouch that it's amazing.

    Price: $84 (a $126 value)

    5. A pair of Hunter Original Tour Short Packable Rain Boots, a classic, comfortable, and timeless boot you'll wear forever.

    Promising review: "Love them!! They are very light and easy to put on and take off. Very comfortable." —Ximena

    Price: $89.90 (after the sale $145, available in sizes 5-11)

    6. A pair of the Spanx OnCore Mid Thigh Shaper Shorts, a perfect solution for anyone interested in camouflaging any lumps and bumps under their clothes.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "They're actually a pretty thick material and they have great control. They make my tummy look flat when it actually isn't. I wear them in the office when I'm wearing a dress or skirt. The outline does not show. Sometimes I even wear them over stockings. They can get pretty warm but I love them. The leg part does not ride up and they also give a lift of the butt. I'm 5-foot-7, about 140 lbs., and got the M." —ShannonLA

    Price: $41.90 (after the sale $64, available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    7. A versatile Calson hooded utility jacket that'll give you the look of layers without all that bulk.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $58.90 (after the sale $99, available in sizes XS-XL and in 1X-4X)

    8. A pair of platform Chinese Laundry Theresa sandals for a little height and a lot of comfort.

    The Chinese Laundry Theresa Platform Sandal in black.
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I got the nude color. My feet hurt really bad when I wear high heels. But I’m 4-foot-10 so I wanted extra height. If you are looking for extra height but comfortable heels that you can wear for long hours and not feel pain, these are the heels!" —ShortAsian

    Price: $39.90 (after the sale $69.95, available in sizes 5-11 and in nine colors)

    9. A True & Co True Body Triangle Convertible Strap Bralette that might just be the most comfortable bra I've ever worn! I just got this bra and holy moly it's so soft but supportive. I actually fell asleep wearing it because I forgot to take it off, and that's saying a lot from the girl who literally rips her bra off the second she enters a home (and it doesn't even need to be my own home)!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "THE Quarantine Bra! So comfy. The fabric is very soft and the best part is, no underwire. The thin pads give a bit of support and keep it from flattening me out too much. I don't want to wear another bra even after we're all out of isolation." —Maxwellagain

    Price: $28.90 (after the sale $44, available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    10. A pair of Spanx's Faux Leather Leggings — if you've been living in leggings for the last few months ::cough cough years cough:: these leggings are THE perfect "gotta change into my outside leggings!" They're sleek, sturdy, comfy, and actually make it seem like you tried.

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these leggings!!!! I read some comments that they run small but I would say they run pretty true-to-size. They’re so comfortable and I’m so happy with them. I’ll probably order more so I can have a few pairs! A def need in your wardrobe!" —BerkeleySoul

    Price: $64.90 (after the sale $98, available in sizes XS-XL)

    11. A half-zip BP. fleece hoodie so soft and so cuddly they're going to have to pry it off your warm, comfy body.

    Nordstrom

    Set includes mini versions of their Moisturizing Soft Cream (0.5 oz.), Renewal Oil (0.17 oz.), Treatment Lotion (0.5 oz.), and Hydrating Illuminator (0.1 oz.).

    Promising review: "I LOVE these sunglasses! They are perfect if you want to try out a round shape without going all the way round. They look great with my face shape and are very stylish! Will definitely be wearing these this fall and winter! :)" —adsmith

    Price: $99.90 (after the sale $154)

    14. A heathered BDG Urban Outfitters Brendon Plaid Flannel Shirt, because believe it or not fall is like a month away and this is THE perfect top for it.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $26.90 (after the sale $55, available in sizes XXS-XL and in two colors)

    16. A travel-size Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Set with every bold, radiant, and perfectly matched shade of red, orange, and pink you'd ever want.

    Nordstrom

    The set includes the #1 Le Rouge (iconic blood red), #9 Rose Stiletto (berry rose), #13 Le Orange (bright orange), #52 Rouge Rose (rosy coral), #70 Le Nu (timeless nude), and #19 Fuchsia Pink (bright violet pink).

    Promising review: "Great value to try different colors. I’ve always wanted to try these and now I can use the mini lipsticks without wasting the full size." —stellardance

    Price: $56 (a $114 value)

    17. An absolute timeless Chelsea28 leather moto jacket you'll easily wear all the time, for every reason. Need to dress down a flowy dress? This jacket! Wanna dress up a pair of jeans? This jacket. Just want a jacket to complement your general bad-ass-ness? This guy!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing this jacket for a while, and I'm happy I finally bought it. I never saw it go on sale before, so when it did I quickly bought it. The jacket is super soft, and I like that it's simple. I run on the smaller side, 4-foot-11, and I bought an XS. I didn't have an issue with the arms being too narrow but there definitely isn't too much extra room. The collar ended up resting a little too high on my neck but it's easily solved by not zipping it up that high. It goes well with everything, and I can see myself wearing it year-round." —Andromeda25

    Price: $199.90 (after the sale $299, available in sizes XXS-XXL)

    18. A pair of super soft BP. fleece jogger pants that honestly just look SO comfortable, I'm relaxing just looking them.

    Price: $24.90 (after the sale $45, available in sizes XS-XL, 1X-3X, and in four colors)

    19. A pair of the ever-so-comfy Hanky Panky low-rise thongs — I dunno what they make these out of but I'm telling you it's magic. They fit so perfectly you'll honestly think they were made just for your body.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Wardrobe staples! These fit like gloves through weight fluctuations, never dig in, or leave panty lines. I machine-wash them in cold water in the gentle cycle and dry them flat. Dries super fast." —TLC3d

    Price: $16.90 (after the sale $22, available in one size and in 12 colors)

    20. A pair of Treasure & Bond Gabriella Chelsea Boots, because if boots were ever made for walking it would be these boots.

    Price: $59.90 (after the sale $119.95, available in sizes 5-12 and in two colors)

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "So soft and color is gorgeous! I like that it is a little form-fitting. I got the XS and it fits perfect on myself and my teenage daughter. I'm 5-foot-1, 110 lbs. — size up if you’d like more room or an over-sized look." —AddyT

    Price: $69.90 (after the sale $99, available in sizes XS-XXL and in two colors)

    25. A NuFace White Trinity Facial Toning Kit — I've watched a lot of tutorials on YouTube about how this device works and it's INCREDIBLE. The device uses microcurrents to help lift sagging skin, contour your face, and deal with wrinkles by going deep into the skin to tone facial muscles and the results are often seen instantly and in a pretty dramatic fashion. It's kinda incredible.

    Nordstrom

    Kit includes the Trinity Device in white, the Trinity Facial Toning (microcurrent attachment), a 2 oz. gel primer, charging cradle, power adapter, and a one-year warranty.

    Promising review: "Believe the hype. NuFace Works. Worthy investment. Better than paying for monthly facials." —APickyShoppersAssessment

    Price: $217.75 (a $325 value)

    26. A classic pair of Veja Esplar sneakers which happen to be named after a Brazilian NGO that brings technical support to organic cotton farming families — they're also crafted from Rio Grande do Sul farms leather and tanned according to REACH standards, plus the lining is made from organic cotton and the soles are wild Amazonian rubber.

    Promising review: "I’ve been looking for the perfect white sneaker for a while and this Veja nails it. Great with jeans, great with a T-shirt dress. Several compliments with jean shorts and a T-shirt. Fit is true-to-size, and I’ve been walking in them with and without socks. Highly recommend!" —AMGchicago

    Price: $89.90 (after the sale $120, available in sizes 5-10)

    27. And a gorgeous splurge-worthy Avec Les Filles double-breasted wool-blend coat that'll keep you warm all winter long.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This coat is very flattering. Love the arm length. I’m 5-foot-11 and it's difficult finding coats long enough for my arms. It does run on the smaller size. I purchased a medium and normally wear a size 8 in dresses." —Anntaylorj

    Price: $199.90 (after the sale $335, available in sizes XXS-XXL and in two colors)
