Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Public Access: What I Bought, What I Love, and an Outfit

July 20, 2017

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Public Access day! The floodgates are officially opened. I couldn’t decide what type of post would be most beneficial in terms of helping you shop. Sharing what I bought? Favorites from each category? An outfit post?…. So yeah. I did all three in one. I’m going to keep this intro short because, well, things are going fast…..

Ten Things I Bought and LOVE….

These double take leggings…(more practical version here)

These booties are life changing.

Quite possibly my favorite classic pair of jeans ever (worth the back order wait).

One for me, one for you (the ultimate holiday gift)

An everyday tote (tip: find a local monogrammed to emboss your initials!)

No brainer tee (wash, and air dry)

Effortless top (wear now and later – size down)

Worth the hype (if not in the budget, I love this one too)

Yep. Pretty obessed with these pumps.


Favorite bra ever.

And a few things currently in my cart….

Camo love | Moto Love | Boot Love | Cardigan Love

And because the sale is so massive, I went ahead and narrowed down the top selling categories…

Favorites by Category….

Top Sweaters

Top Shoes

Top Denim

Top Shirts


Top Activewear

Top Outerwear

A Complete Outfit….

When the coveted Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog arrived at my house at the end of June, I must admit, I was not super impressed by the selection. As usual, the sale has proved me wrong and I purchase way too many things I never knew I would need for fall (mid-July) until now. The one thing that did catch my eye in the catalog was these Frame split hem jeans. Did I love them? Did I hate them? Could I cheat on my beloved skinny jeans for a straight-legged option? The day before the sale went live, Abby and I got a sneak peek at our local Nordstrom. I pulled them on, checked all of the angles in the mirror and asked Abby, “Ok so do we love them or do we hate them?”. We looked at each other, smiled, and almost in unison we said, “We love them!!!” They are a little different, yes, but that just makes styling all that easier. Just add a simple sweater or top and let the denim do the talking.

A note about fit and styling: I sized down in these jeans for a slimmer fit. I think they look best with a bootie or heel that has a bit of a lift, but a flat sandal for warmer temps also looks great! The sweater runs TTS and, yes, you can wear a regular bra!

    Just go ahead and buy the Sam Edelman Camellia boots. I got them in tan and am obsessed! Cannot wait to wear them. Selfishly I want you to get them so you will style them 🙂
