Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Madness!

If you follow me, chances are you might follow other bloggers. So I apologize in advance if you're sick and tired of this sale! I know a lot of people are covering it. I also know that this is typically later in the game than the other bloggers covering it but I'm sharing because there are still great picks! I'm all for stocking up on high-quality staples that I know will get a lot of wear at this sale! A lot of the hotter-than-hot items have not been restocked - but there are a lot of similar options to those that are still available!

I've broken down my selections into tops, bottoms, and shoes. Some of the items I bought last year and still love and plan to wear this coming fall and winter and that's why I've included them on the list. All items are shoppable by clicking the photo in the collage, the bar beneath the collage below the photo - happy shopping!


I love stocking up on cozy sweaters, sleek jackets and other tops that I know will be versatile throughout all cold months! This year the sale had a lot of great options that I know will last and complete any outfit. Whether you're heading to brunch, the office, of staying in for a cozy movie night!


Bottoms aren't always something that I've confidently shopped. In fact, up until I started blogging I didn't even feel comfortable in jeans! But shopping this sale and finding good picks for you have helped my confidence grow in this area! (Shh... the Spanx faux leather leggings are on sale at another distributor!)


The pieces from this post and sale are dynamic in a lot of understated ways. These items are going to last you a long time and will be able to be mix and matched with other staples in your closet. Which to me, is important. That's why I shop this sale!

If you have any sizing questions - please let me know!  I love being a resource for you and helping you any way I can! If you don't have the budget or desire to shop the sale - that's okay too! There are going to be a lot of sales throughout the next few months that I will cover to help you find what works for you and your budget! Happy shopping!

Summer Shoes: The Must-Have's, The Passes And The Steal's!

With every season comes the evolving of your wardrobe. The good thing about shoes though is that when you invest in a pair whatever they may be and at whatever price point, chances are they will be in for the next few summers. We're in the thick of summer but there's always more room for shoes in my opinion. 😉

You can click any of the images and they will take you right to more information on the shoe and where to purchase it!


The Classics - having your go to's that go with every outfit make the summer easy and breezy. I will say the Miller sandals are 100% worth the price point! I've had my Tory Burch Miller sandals for almost five years and they've held up so well! I've also linked a reliable dupe because I totally get that price point can be an issue!

I also feel like the Birkenstocks are well worth Once your break Birkenstocks in, they're so comfy and their great summer walking shoes. Their rubber Arizona sandal comes in a lot of fun colors, they're easy to wash and they're a more affordable option.

Platforms, platforms, platforms! An easy way to look dressed up without having to worry about your feet! All of these platforms are great for work, a night out on the town or a trip to the beach. They're practical, affordable and all come in love of color options and patterns for every personal style preference. 


Wedges and heels can be difficult. Overall, I try to steer clear of most heels only because well, they kind of stink! But when I find a good pair I hold on tight! Wedges and kitten heels tend to be more of my jam. You can wear them longer and it's less likely you'll crack an ankle. 

No matter what your style is, summer shoes are a must. Nowadays there are so many options, retailers, colors, and designers it can be hard to choose! These three items, no matter what style or color you pick, are crucial. Being able to sift through the offerings and showcase my staples helps you pick yours. Happy shopping!
