Nordstrom Rack Kids {Portland}

{This is a sponsored post written by me for Nordstrom Rack. They kindly sent me a giftcard and I went shopping!}

Recently, I was asked by the downtown Nordstrom Rack to come check out their new kids' section, which launched on Saturday.  I already knew the Rack had a great selection of clothes and shoes for me {when I do get out shopping, which is rarely-almost-never these days} and was excited for the opportunity to just go shopping again!

Their small but thoughtful selection of kids' clothes didn't fail to disappoint. There was a nice balance between the affordable everyday wear that I wouldn't feel too guilty about getting dirty - we're doing about two changes a day now that they've discovered the dirt patch in our yard - and the nicer, designer clothing that you'd expect from Nordstrom.

Andy came along to help wrangle the girls as they're into the running down aisles-through-aisles-into people phase that gets exhausting when it's just me. We snapped some pictures of them carrying these little dog purses that they were kind of obsessed with and I'm kicking myself for not swallowing my pride {there were sequins} and buying them.

If you've been around here for a while, you know that I claim to have no baby style. I see cute things and I like them on their own, but then get them home and have nothing to pair them with. Case in point, the dresses with red buttons and the pink sandals. So I tried to shop in "outfits," as my poor mother tries to teach me over and over. I was about 60% successful, that's pretty good! 

We left the store with a new play outfit for each of the girls, two new dresses, two cute little insulated lunchbags, a random adorable mini Boden tee on major clearance, and two pairs of shoes. And I'm going to go back and get those little dog purses.

The best surprises and the biggest splurge were these little Toms. They've been on my wishlist but I hesitate because needing two pairs adds up quickly, but at the Rack I saved $20 total off the retail price. They're a tad big on my girls' freakishly tiny feet, but by then end of the summer I think they'll fit perfectly. And I'm pretty sure these Toms match everything, don't you think?

If you're downtown shopping, it's worth a stop into the Rack for a peek!

  1. Those tiny toms are adorable. I'm the same with shopping in "outfits." I find really cute stuff and buy it, then when it comes to wear the outfits I realize Pearl has no shoes that match. Plus she is in between sizes so she grew out of a lot of shoes. We ended up taking her to a wedding in cheap Old Navy flip flops last weekend.

  2. Ha! Yep, pretty much they end up in pink sandals no matter what color they are wearing. They grow out of shoes so fast that I hate buying them at full price!
