12 ITEMS TO BUY FROM THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Ready or not, it’s here again: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While I love a good sale, I have been following a less is more method of shopping this year. This philosophy has really allowed me too narrow in on what pieces I reach for in my closet, what fits my figure, and what’s worth the investment. I did a deep dive on all of the items in the sale and was really selective on the pieces I chose. THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 19th). Y’all the pieces in the sale are goood this year!

Today is the last day of my 20’s. That sounds so strange and I am still having a few mixed feelings about this––99% of them being positive. I am actually looking forward to my 30s. Everyone keeps saying they are the best years of your life…but then again, people say that about your 20s, too! We weren’t planning on doing something big for my birthday this year, but in true Patrick nature he surprised me with a trip to wine country.  Napa/Sonoma have been on our list forever and he really outdid himself with the itinerary. Since this is our first time to wine country, I would love to hear any recommendations on must-see spots!

STOCKING UP ON BASICS DURING THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Basics

Happy Friday! Anyone else feeling like the weeks are flying by? Maybe it’s the fact that I turn 30 in a few weeks or that we only have a a couple months left of summer, but I am filling up my weekends with all the plans. This weekend we are headed to brunch with some friends and then I hope to spend most of the time by the pool. For my birthday, I asked for tennis lessons––I was hoping to have my first one this weekend, but my toe still has a little more healing to do before I head out onto the court.  Injuries aside, I picked up this adorable tennis dress for my first lesson.  Next weekend I am heading to my best friends bachelorette party in Cabo. After that we have a packed schedule the rest of the summer until Labor Day.

A DRESS TO WEAR NOW AND LATER

Rebecca Taylor Dress from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When it comes to shopping, I have been making an effort to be more intentional when it comes to my purchases.  After doing a major closet clean out last year, creating a cohesive closet full of quality pieces has become so important to me.  During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it is so easy to go overboard (there are so many cute options this year!), so knowing which brands and items to buy is so essential for staying on track.  I purchased 10 items (all at different price points) this year and I felt really good about my decisions!

TOP 10 PIECES TO BUY EARLY DURING THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

While I am not ready for summer to end just yet, the sale of the year is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 20th). I headed into the store yesterday for a sneak peek at the entire sale. Y’all it is goood this year. The list is extensive, but if you are anything like me, I love an excuse for a great deal on something I would be purchasing for the season anyways.

If you are not familiar with the sale, here’s the scoop: Nordstrom selects all new arrivals for the upcoming season and discounts them for a limited amount of time.  With over 100 pages of product, the sale can get super overwhelming to browse. In order to stay on track, I have created a shopping strategy so I end up buying things I really love and/or need.

1. VINCE CARDIGAN / 2. TATA HARPER SKINCARE SET / 3. VINCE MULES / 4. REBECCA TAYLOR DRESS / 5. J.CREW PJ’s / 6. NECKLACE / 7. COAT (under $200!) / 8. DERMAFLASH 2.0 / 9. DENIM / 10. HANKY PANKY

SUMMER STRIPED SWEATER

If there is one thing that I was missing last summer on Nantucket, it was some casual summer sweaters. I brought my trusty Tippi’s with me, but I was lacking different styles and weights for cooler nights.  This year I came prepared and packed this striped one––which ended up being my most worn item, this Flag sweater and a navy and ivory cable knit cashmere for throwing over my shoulders.

10 (LIGHT) TOPS FOR ANY SEASON

There is nothing more I have loved than escaping the Dallas heat this summer. The idea of wearing jeans in July normally sounds dreadful, but in Nantucket, the temps drop at night and jeans and a top are ideal for dinner outside.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially starts this Friday and if you read this post, you know how many good Fall new arrivals are included in the sale.  This top is one of my favorite purchases I made! I am all about instant gratification and love that I can wear this throughout the rest of the summer with jeans, high-waisted shorts or a cute mini skirt.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY PICKS

Nordstrom Anniversary SaleI am packing my bags again for a quick “surprise” trip to San Francisco for my birthday!  Patrick had the entire trip planned as a surprise, but decided to tell me because the weather is a little funky in Northern California.  Living in Dallas, I was having a hard time even thinking about buying coats, sweaters and boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but since I now have the perfect excuse, I have been filling my cart with some great deals! I showed you my early access picks last week and I am making sure to follow the same strategy.

It’s hard to think about Fall, sweaters and booties when it is 100 degrees outside, but it is totally worth it when your season staples are marked WAY down.  The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and after spending some time browsing the site and filling my shopping cart full (so long paycheck), I have narrowed down my list to a few categories.
