LAST CHANCE: All the Clothes, Accessories, Kids Gear, and More You Need From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom sale is probably a big thing for many people, but for me, it’s quintessentially linked to motherhood.

Though I love fashion, I was never a binge sale shopper in my pre-kid adulthood. But, a few months after the birth of my first baby, I came to a startling realization as I tried to pull on a pair of jeans for the first time and couldn’t get them past my knees: my entire body was different.

Being among the first of my friends to have kids, I hadn’t gotten the nitty-gritty on body changes and was naive enough to assume that you gain some body weight through pregnancy and that’s it. HA, no. My hips were different, my ribs were different, and the way my body carried weight was different. Needless to say, my entire wardrobe suddenly became obsolete.

This realization came around at the exact time of the Nordstrom sale, and so, I took advantage for the first time in my entire adult life. Some of those pieces have now become the most beloved and worn parts of my wardrobe – the soft, broken-in jeans I chase my kids around in, the studded booties I wear on date nights with my husband, the quilted leather jacket I toss on top on my mom-uniform of leggings and v-neck t-shirts come fall.

And each time I pull on one of those pieces, I am immediately brought back to that time of new motherhood when I wallowed in the loss of my old body while simultaneously basking in the intoxicating scent of my newborn.

Maybe this year’s sale will be that for you.
