“Mommy, these shoes are NOT your style! They are boring!” says my son as I get ready to photograph my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale looks. “Your shoes are always colorful and interesting. Did you really buy two black and two tan shoes? Are you feeling OK?” he continues.
“Yes, I did. I see what you mean about my shoes, but my wardrobe is actually missing black and nude shoes. There are times that I need them when the outfit has a lot going on.” I reply.
“OK, let’s see how they look.” he says with skepticism.
He smiles as he photographs each of the six looks.
I hit the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early on the first day and tried on just about everything. I culled these six looks. I have been working on cleaning out my closet (still), so I had a good idea of what I need and what I have plenty of (hello handbags!). I styled these looks with my own bags, but if I was in the market, I would consider this tote in silver, this bag (that is perfect for my upcoming travels) , this leopard crossbody, the gorgeous yellow clutch, this travel-friendly navy camo backpack, and this tote.
There were a couple of things I ordered that were not available in my size including this sweater, this dress, this top and these jeans. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always my annual opportunity to refresh and replenish basics. I picked up this bra and I always stock up on these and added these to the mix.
