    Thanks. I am going to order the cropped wide leg and the jogger. I normally prefer Athleta but I think Lululemon has cuter joggers.

    I think I got the lulu align joggers in the cropped length. I like them a lot, but I haven’t worn them much because I got a new kitten soon after I got them, and I don’t want her to claw the fabric (not to mention it’s too darned hot now).
    @mom60, I have found that Lulu pants last longer when actually used to exercise than Athleta.

    I have fallen in love with several summer high neck halter tops I’ve seen online and then I snap out of it when I think of the hassle of buying and wearing a bra to go with that style.

    Back to joggers and a rock t-shirt....sigh!

    I just ordered the jogger and the wide leg crop. I have both Lululemon and Athleta pants for exercise. I like them both but my favorite is a pair of Athleta salutation cropped leggings. I live close to the ocean in Ca with a lot of mornings with fog with many days the sun not coming out till mid or late afternoon so the thickness doesn’t bother me.

    I like the Salutations too! I think I have them in multiple lengths.

    I ordered a few things on the J Crew 72% off sale. D1 loves their no show socks which were $4.50 for a 3 pack so I got her 6 pairs. I also got a cute canvas bag for $24 that can be carried to work (if I ever go back!) when I don't want to use my leather Madewell one. I also got H a couple of nice short sleeve button down shirts he can wear with shorts.

    Just a gripe about dressing young in the time of covid. I get dressed to go out and run errands. Put on my face and then remember I can’t put on my favorite makeup, lipstick, because of the darn mask. That mask ruins every cute outfit. Forget earrings, just get tangled every time I take the mask on and off...plus I wear HA. Ok, just need to vent as I get ready to take off for the afternoon.

    My Lulu ordered is supposed to come today. I think my neighbors should thank me as the summer fog is gone and it’s a beautiful sunny day with more of the same in the forecast. Definitely not a jogger weekend. I’m looking forward to getting it anyway. I ordered the cropped wide leg in navy and the jogger in olive green.

    Did someone on here get the Salutation joggers from Athleta? If so, how do they fit? I like my Salutation yoga pants or whatever you call the tighter fit ones, but I can’t tell if the waistband on the joggers is “flat” or has some gathers. I want flat.

    @1214mom I bought the Lululemon Align jogger because the waistband was flat. I am normally a Athleta Salutation fan but I was concerned about the gathers on the Salutation in the online photos. I have to drive a couple of hours to go to Athleta which isn’t happening with Covid. I have a Lululemon in town so I can easily return.
    The Lulu order arrived and I like the jogger. I didn’t realize they had two lengths and ordered the longer pant. I ordered a size up from my usual sizing. I wanted the jogger to fit a bit looser than a legging. I could have gone with my regular size but I’m happy with them. The cropped wide leg I think will go back. I like them but the waistband is uncomfortably high for me. I can fold it over and make it worked but at full price it’s not worth it to me. I went with my regular size but also think I could have gone down a size. I’m going to pull on my mask and ventured to do an in store return later this week. It will be my first time going into a store that isn’t for “Essentials”.
    @Nhatrang my D’s boyfriend loves Lulu shorts.

    @showmom858 wishing you a wonderful evening out. Happy Anniversary. The dress is fantastic and I’m sure it will feel good to put on real dress up clothes.

    So the Nordstrom anniversary sale is starting soon. This year the sale was pushed back and everything is online to put in a wishlist. Since it’s currently 67 degrees here and at least August I have a couple of things on my wish list.

    These boots are at the top of my wish list

    The other item are these pants

    I’ll probably order a new bra and I saw eyeshadow I will probably buy.

    Anyone else have any items they have their eye on?

    I put several things on my wish list (Pjs, bras, candles, Shampoo trio thing, comfy pants), and probably a 3rd of them are now sold out. I wonder if they’ll get more of if when things are gone, they’re gone.

    I'm not a Nordstrom shopper - tell me about this anniversary sale. To keep a wish list the deals must be pretty good!

    @abasket the anniversary sale is when Nordstrom discounts many new fall/winter clothes, shoes, etc. So basically it is a sale on the new season of clothes that are coming up not a markdown of summer stuff.

    No politics but I loved the dress Eva Longoria wore tonight. Anyone else? @BunsenBurner you’re our fashion expert, Designer?
