Hi Friends!

Thank you so much for your patience with me.  Keep it up because exciting changes will be coming to the blog within the next week or so!

OF COURSE, I wanted to let you know about one of my favorite things in the whole year, (the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) and share my tips on how to shop it and this year’s picks!  (At a lots of different price points!)

First for tips!

  1. Think Ahead: I know we are all sweltering in the summer heat right about now but in about 6 weeks or so, you will be reaching for those layers and stoked about Fall and Winter clothes! So… take advantage of this bomb dot com sale and buy what you don’t really want to buy this very second, but what you will need in just a wink!
  2. Look for Classic Closet Staples:  I use this sale to re-stock my wardrobe with the classics that rarely go on sale that I always need.  For me, my list can include the following: an everyday watch, a timeless handbag, flattering dark wash skinny jeans, workout shoes, workout pants, a go-to-wear-with-everything hat, a classic pull-over or cardigan sweater, boots and/or booties that I can wear 3/4 of the year (if you didn’t already know, this is my FAV type of shoe times a million), and a chic coat and/or leather jacket.  Although I of course don’t buy all of these items every year, I peruse my closet, and then fill what is missing/needs to be replaced every sale!
  3. Don’t Be Afraid to ‘Over’ Order: If you are unsure of a style or size and think you MIGHT like the item, order it any way.  (Order multiple sizes even!)  Nordstrom is the absolute best at returns and will take your purchases back at any time.  It is best to order first and decide later because things go fast!!!
