Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

“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.

I am considering this Boss suit.  The pants are a perfect fit and the jacket has a fun detail with two shades of blue.

Early Access started yesterday and runs through July 19th.  In order to take advantage of Early Access you need a Nordstrom Card, you can apply here. Regular Access begins on July 20th and runs through August 5th. Prices return to full price on August 6th.

Flower Power

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.

In the meantime, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming to a close and I wanted to share two more floral looks.  I styled this floral blouse with these pants and pink suede shoes.  The shoes are almost sold out, but I think these and these would both look great.  I styled the same shoes with this blouse and jeans.  The sale end this Sunday, August 6th.

Black and White

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.

Jeans and a Blazer with a side of Bees

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.

Fall Bell

I love the bell sleeve trend and was happy to see it continue into fall.  This top has a thicker fabric and beautiful rose gold zipper in the back.  I styled it two ways.

I rarely wear black and almost never all black so for the first look I added a pop of pink with these shoes and wore this comfortable simple black pant.

For the second look I swapped out the black pants and added this dark green denim which can be just a versatile as black and added this pair of booties.

All Access!

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 have visited the sale a few more times.  My husband scored this jacket.  I also went back for a few beauty buys like this great hair duo, lip gloss set in both bright and nude, and  lipstick pencil set.

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.

Bells and Bees

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.

Aubergine and Asphalt

There are so many great pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  In my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post last week I featured six looks.  Here is a detailed look at the Paige Skinny Jeans in Aubergine and the Rag & Bone Booties in Asphalt.  As you may have noticed, I rarely wear black shoes.  I prefer a little color or interest with my shoes.  I love that these are as versatile as black while still being interesting.  Colored demin is such a great way to dress up denim and these skinny jeans are definitely super skinny, but also so comfortable.
