My Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m sure you’re seeing a ton about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so here’s my two cents as well! Decided to share the sale info for you to keep note of as well as some of my picks – hope it helps! Admittedly, I tend to be so bad about taking advantage of this sale and missing out on some amazing Fall finds. I’ll put (a bunch) of things in my cart and then get distracted or try to talk myself out of how much I have in my cart…I know I’m not the only one…right?! Either way, I refuse this year- finally gonna snag these booties I’ve been on the hunt for and few other goodies – especially with 40% off! 

When To Shop

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will open to everyone on Friday, July 20th, 2018 until Sunday, August 5th, 2018. Early access is available for Nordstrom cardholders NOW – a week before the general public.

You can shop the sale from this link when it goes LIVE for you.

Anniversary Sale Dates:

July 12th, 2018 – Early Access Shopping Begins

July 19th, 2018 – Early Access Shopping Ends

July 20th, 2018 – Anniversary Sale Opens to ALL

August, 5th, 2018 – Anniversary Sale Ends

What is the Big Deal

I don’t know about you but I love a deal and during the sale – items are 40% off – enough said. I decided to get off my butt this year and even signed up for a Nordstrom card to take advantage of early access. You definitely don’t have to, just be aware that some of the items available may be sold out or limited supply. However, I’ve read that they typically restock before the sale opens again for everyone so never fear.

Sale Shopping Recommendation

Check out the 2018 Anniversary Sale Catalog to start eyeing what may be of interest! That way when you are ready to shop – you’ve got a game plan, girlfriend. It’s every man for himself with this one – things go FAST! Another tip, ordering online is easier than shopping in the store since it will be super busy. You can always order and go pick up if you don’t like deliveries. For me, I try to avoid the mall at all costs.

How I’m Shopping this Year

I’m on the hunt for cozy sweaters and fall tops but I’m especially focused on workout gear, pajamas (I love pajama sets) and boots/booties (because I always miss out on them).

My Turks and Caicos Travel Guide

BJ and I visited Turks and Caicos back in May and we are so happy to have finally checked this beautiful island off our list! We went for 5 days and I can’t wait to visit again – I may or may not have already started looking up dates. We were looking for a destination where we could just relax, unwind and get-a-WAY….this was definitely it! I’d wanted to go for so long and had always heard great things. My friend Erin has a family house in Turks and has…

How to Be a Great Hostess

I know I’ve shared all too often that my love of entertaining and all things ‘home’ comes from my gorgeous momma! She really is the ULTIMATE hostess and I still learn so much from her in that regard – well, in everything honestly lol. She is not only skilled at creating the most beautiful events and settings, but she is especially skilled at making special moments. Moments that make all that are present feel welcome and special. That, to me, makes a true hostess. I wanted to show you a…

Summer ’18 Bags: Woven Raffia

Raffia bags are one of my favorites during the summer! Last year I was obsessed with my cult gaia bag (which I still am), but this year I’ve been leaning towards bags made from raffia. It just screams ‘Summa, summa, summa-timeee’! Woven raffia and wicker are similar to me and both are one of my favorites in the warmer months. What is Raffia? Raffia is “a palm tree native to tropical Africa and Madagascar, with a short trunk and leaves that may grow up to 60 feet (18 m) long….

Beach Kimonos

I’ve been loving kimonos lately! The idea of throwing on something light over shorts and bodysuit or jeans and a tank sounds perfect to me. I especially like kimonos over swimwear! It’s such a nice alternative to your typically ‘shirt’ style cover up and can transition so well. This beach kimono set (here) I had to have. Mainly because I love the Versace vibes from the chain print. I threw it on in Miami over a swimsuit – you could wear this out walking around (hence the heels) or to…
