Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 + My Picks!

 

Good Morning everyone,

Todays post is a very exciting one because I’m talking all about the biggest sale of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I’m going to cover what is is, how and when to take advantage of it, and what my picks are from the sale, so lets get started!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is unlike typical sales because Nordstrom releases all their brand-new fall merchandise at deep discounted prices for a limited time. After the sale all fall merchandise goes back up to regular price for the rest of the season.

When and how can we shop the sale?

For Nordstrom cardholders the early access sale started July 13th and runs until the 20th(tomorrow’s the last day). After that the sale opens up to the public from July 21st-Aug 6th, and then prices on the fall line go back up August 7th. The sale can be shopped in stores or on the Nordstrom website!

What are your picks from the sale?

Okay now for the fun part… I shopped the sale early and chose all my favourite items from their new fall line. If you guys have been following me for a while you’ll know that fall is my favourite season, so I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I get super excited to shop for fall clothing lol! I have bunch of picks from the sale but I’m breaking them down by category to make it a little less over whelming.

 

Tees and Tops

 

I chose mostly layering tees because thats what I live in during the fall and winter. They’re perfect to throw on with an oversized scarf, jeans and booties in early fall, and when it gets cooler just layer under a jacket or cardigan.

 

Sweaters and Jackets

 

In the fall I love wearing chunky knits, oversized sweaters and long duster cardigans in seasonal colours, like browns, greens and rusty oranges. Even cashmere is included in the Nordstrom sale this year, so if you’ve always wanted to get your hands on a super soft wardrobe staple, nows the time!

 

Dresses and Rompers

 

These pieces caught my eye because we are able to wear them right now, the floral romper is perfect for the summer but the other three pieces would be great for transitioning into fall too! Throw on a suede jacket, booties and a felt hat and your ready for the apple orchard!

 

Bottoms

 

I live in denim year round but every fall I always stock up on jeans in darker hues, they’re the perfect piece to compliment any outfit. I also picked a good high rise black legging because they’re great to wear with long sweaters and tunics.

 

Shoes

 

Fall = Booties, Boots, and leopard print, enough said!

 

Accessories

 

My absolute favourite thing to buy in the fall is blanket scarves, and Nordstrom has come through with some extra cozy ones this year(I can’t wait to be able to wear them!!). They also have a ton of cute sunglasses, dainty jewelry, and bags perfect for fall!

 

If you guys want a sneak peak at whats available in the sale two days early click here. You won’t be able to purchase until the 20th without a Nordstrom debit or credit card, but its smart to pre-shop because sizes sell out quickly once the sale opens to the public. With a sale this good, you won’t want to miss out!

 

Birthday Haul!

Hey guys!

It’s been a week since you’ve heard from me, I skipped my Wednesday and Friday posts last week for my birthday. So today’s post is a round up of everything I bought for myself on my birthday & what Peter gave me as a gift! But let me start off by saying I had the worst luck ever on my actual birthday (last Thursday) and my car had an electrical fire as we were driving home from Toronto..so I ended up with a huge tow truck bill as my main birthday present…which kind of put a damper on things but my birthday celebration on Friday night made up for it.

Okay lets jump into the good stuff, first up is makeup!

I always buy fresh makeup the day before my birthday, because lets face it… the first application with new makeup is magical to say the least.. and what better day to feel that magic than on my birthday!

Makeup details – Smashbox Primer Set / Rimmel Lipstick (by Kate) *in shade 45/ Covergirl Kity Kat Matte Lipstick *in shade Pink Paws / NYX Concealer / Telescope Mascara / NYX Matte Lip Lingerie *in shade Babydoll/

img_5222On my actual Birthday Peter took me to the new Nordstrom in Toronto because we finally got one here! That was my one birthday request, but surprisingly I didn’t find much to buy that I thought was worth the price.

What I did leave with was:  Sunnies *in rose gold / Sugarfina Bubble Bears /

and….

 Scarf /

This gorgeous blanket scarf! Its the perfect size for feeling extra cozy in the fall, and is a really gorgeous gray/olive colour.

Hat / Leggings /

Next stop was to the GAP and I fell in love with this adorable pink pom pom hat! I thought it would be so cute with a leather jacket.. the perfect girly/edgy combo.

Then to Old Navy for my favorite leggings, these are high rise and soooo flattering, they look and feel like Lulu Lemon leggings but a fraction of the price!

Hey Guys!

I’m sharing a few of my most loved items from Nordstrom today. I have always loved shopping on Nordstrom’s website but I’m soooo excited that come September Toronto will finally have a store I can go to! You couldn’t even imagine my excitement over this, I think I’m going to go opening day… I should probably start saving my pennies now haha!

Anyways I am writing this post from up north – on the beach and its beautiful here… I never want to leave! We’re only here for two nights/three days so we’re trying to do as much sight seeing as possible in the short time we have. I think tomorrow we’re going to wake up early and watch the sunrise on the beach and then do some hiking! I hope you guys are having a good week <3

Thanks for reading!
