I just got back from San Francisco where the anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love is in full swing. Check back next week for more on my adventures. It was fun to spend some time in the city where I spent my twenties with my travel loving seven year old.
Sometimes I do crave basic black and white, but not boring. This sweater and pants fit the bill. I paired them with the most comfortable booties. They do break my no black shoes rule, but with the textured detail they add interest.
We are in the final stretch of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale ends on Sunday, August 6th with prices going back to full price on Monday, August 7th. Don’t miss out. It is also the best time to shop for basics like these, this and these cozy pajamas.
The easiest way to dress up jeans and a tee is with a blazer. This blazer is so versatile in basic black with white piping and can easily be dressed up. I kept this look casual with bee mules, denim and a white tee.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale continues through Sunday, August 6th. Prices return to full price on Monday, August 7th. Don’t miss out! More of my picks are here.
Public Access starts today for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I am still jumping for joy over some of my scores last week (which are all here). These jeans are so comfortable and paired with these velvet sneakers I’m reading for lots of walking and jumping. How could I resist this stars and stripes top in my favorite navy and white?
I am still deciding between this Foreo toothbrush and this mini version. I have both the full size and the mini version of this facial cleansing brush also by Foreo and I love them. They are a good value in the sale.
If you are a La Mer fan this is the time to stock up on their amazing cream.
My Grandmother B (who I wrote about here) would have gone crazy for these bee shoes (and they are so affordable that even someone who lived through the depression would not balk). I styled them with this bell sleeve top (also affordable) and these jeans with a fun slit detail. All of this is from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You can see a preview of the eight outfits I styled here.
The photos are by my seven year old. He was also excited about the sale and scored these shoes, this robe and this dopp kit. The Tumi dopp kit seemed extravagant for a seven year old, but he is obsessed with it and Tumi lasts forever (they have a number of luggage pieces in the sale in a great grey). He takes such good care of his things that I expect this will go to college with him.
Have you shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? This week’s mani was inspired by fall colors, new jean styles (like these cute Frame jeans with zippers that bring me back to high school), and all these great prints. I styled eight looks in Friday’s post and there will be more to come this week.. Several items that served as inspiration (some not from the sale) are linked below.
Early Access continues through Thursday, July 21, 2016. In order to purchase during early access you need a Nordstrom credit or debit card. You can apply for one here. Full access begins on Friday, July 22, 2016.
I look forward to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. It is a great time to get some new fall looks at a third to half off before they go back to regular price on August 8, 2016. It started today, July 14, 2016 with early access to cardholders. General access begins next Friday, July 22, 2016. I have put together six ensembles with my picks from the sale. I have been looking for the perfect booties forever. This year I found two pair that fit great! All the items are linked in the captions.
These are just a few of my picks for women. There is also a great selection for men, children and beauty. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is their best sale of the year.
