It’s that time of year again, when we’re all sweating bullets chasing after kids that need to go back to school and trying to tame the crazy the humidity is doing to our hair. Then suddenly, images of bloggers in wool coats, suede booties and cowl neck sweaters drinking vanilla lattes start showing up left and right in all of my social media feeds telling me that I absolutely need over-the-knee boots now. That’s right; it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and it’s open to everyone starting today.
Here’s the deal: I do shop the sale. I don’t shop early. I do buy a few basics (tennis shoes, bras, leggings, etc.) I don’t buy $457 coats because they’re marked down from the original price of $725. I usually don’t buy anything for our home. And, most of all, I do try to remember that I have nowhere to actually wear those $300 over-the-knee boots because most people in my daily life only see me behind the steering wheel from the neck up. But, you know, we all have aspirations to look and be better with the start of a new school year/new season/etc., and I’m no different. #thinkpositive
Things I love about the sale: 1.) Free shipping and free, easy returns. So much easier to try on clothes at home. 2.) Best time to buy quality basics at the lowest price of the year–these tried and true leggings, for example. And, I might do one splurge–like this coat–because it’s my birthday. In November. ;) 3.) Great time to pick up a few things for Christmas–if I can focus.
With all of that being said, here’s an assortment of my favorite pieces from the sale. If you find anything else you love, let me know!
PS–If you find something you want that’s out of stock, keep checking back during the sale. They seem to restock and update their site daily.
