The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: All Access

PicMonkey Collage

If you follow any bloggers, then you have heard many times over, about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It happens once a year and is a preview for Fall and Winter. The way Nordstrom works is they debut their Fall/Winter items on major sale, early access for cardholders (you can apply easily), and then open to the public after a certain date, then prices go back up to regular retail price. It kind of works backwards from normal retail rules, but is a great time to stock up on quality items for a fraction of the prices. I encourage people to get their staple items, and items that are important to them, that they will get a lot of use out of. I believe in investing in the right items and this sale is one of the best ways to do it.

I have highlighted my favorite items and items that are worth it. I have gone through everything, and skipped items I know you can really get better deals other places later in the season at other stores. You can find a ton of bloggers that have given great coverage during early access, but I thought I would help out those that aren’t die hard or just don’t have time to keep track (anyone with kids?), to give you an easy way to shop for the best items for this upcoming season. You know I’m going to be savvy about it!

A Romper That Can Be Dressy And Casual, And The Mom Bag That You Need ASAP

IMG_3675 IMG_3677 IMG_3681 IMG_3692 IMG_3698 IMG_3700 IMG_3704romper c/o: Rosegal | wedges, older, similar here, this is summer’s ‘it’ shoe, and I love this one if you are looking for a wedge | backpack: Zara, mine is sold out online but this one is similar and a great price, and this bucket bag is on major sale | cuff c/o: Kendra Scott

This romper is perfect for a dressier occasion because the sleeves are longer, but light enough for something more casual. I am wearing a size Large because I didn’t want it to be tight and needed it to be long enough. And it’s still a little shorter than I need because I have a long torso, so keep that in mind when ordering. P.s. Rosegal is easy to shop and the prices are great, and shipping doesn’t take that long. I’ve had a few people ask me about it. Sometimes it’s hard to nail down your size since most run small, but I try to look at the material and measurements.

This backpack purse is my new baby bag for the summer. I absolutely love it. It looks chic and is sturdy enough to hold a million diapers/toys/snacks/the ridiculous amount of things I carry as a mother. I would recommend a backpack when some moms ask me for the best kind of carryall purse. I love it because I can have my hands free, and I don’t have to leave it around if I need to put everything down. I can just keep wearing it. The price was amazing, and the other one I linked is very similar make and price wise.


Red, White, and Peplum

Just another post where I go on and on about my love for the peplum style top! Seriously, there are so many versions of it, it can truly look good on anyone! I have paired this summery one with another summer staple, the white jean. And I found a pair I’m obsessed with. I have been looking for an ankle pant that is mid-rise, but not super tight in the leg throughout, kind of straight leg, but not really. And these checked all those boxes! #highmaintenance

I wanted to be simple with my accessories as I like to do so in the summer partly because it’s so hot, a huge arm party of metal is just uncomfortable. So I will usually do a simple cuff or statement watch, a tiny necklace, and I always have earrings. That is one thing I typically do not leave the house without, and do not feel complete until I have my earrings in. My grandmother used to be this way with her eyebrows…

Speaking of accessories, I cannot get enough of this watch. And the funny thing is, everywhere I go, someone comments on it! I definitely didn’t expect that or to love it so much, but it’s a different piece to add to your wardrobe and really cool looking! I seriously wear it everywhere and it is the lightest thing ever because it’s made out of wood! Browse through their site here, and I’m thinking Robert needs one too, so if you want a guy’s gift as well, check them out here.

If you love this watch, you can win a giftcard toward one of your own!
