Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale GIVEAWAY!!

Friends, it’s one of my favorite days of the year!!  It’s my annual ANNIVERSARY SALE ROUND UP AND GIVEAWAY!!!

For those of you who are new, let me explain!  Every year, Nordstrom has their HUGE anniversary sale where they mark down NEW FALL STUFF!  Friends, I do an Anniversary Sale post and giveaway EVERY year because this stuff is AMAZING!  (And when you’re asking me in November where I got my booties, I’m going to say “the Anniversary Sale” and then you’re going to be sad you have to pay full price.)

So, I typically don’t post “what I bought” until the sale goes live to everyone (and not just card holders), buuuuuut things sell out so quickly, that I decided to do it today when it launched to card holders because it just seems to make the most sense.  For those of you who aren’t card holders, you get to shop NEXT Friday.  I also typically wait until my stuff arrives and show you what I bought by wearing it (because I only like to show you what I end up keeping and really, really love), BUT last year, some stuff was sold out by then, so this year, I’m going to show you what I bought (or just loved) this year and then when it arrives in a few days, I’ll post pics of me in it.  Make sense?  ALSO, today, I’m doing my annual ANNIVERSARY SALE GIVEAWAY!

Two lucky winners will each receive a $500 Nordstrom gift card to shop the sale!  Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win and then on Thursday, I will announce the winners so that they can shop on Friday when the sale goes live to everyone.



Yesterday, because I am a Nordstrom cardholder with at least Ambassador status, I was able to do my shopping.  At 11:30 CST today, all cardholders can shop.  Here is what I bought yesterday (again, sorry I’m not actually wearing this stuff, but I’ll show you once it arrives)…

I bought a rug.  What?  What?  Friends!  They had the cutest rugs this year in the sale, so I bought this one for my office.  This one style comes in like 9 super cute patterns, and it was really hard to pick because they were all so cute!  A rug?  Who would have thought?!

I bought one dress this year…

…I thought I could wear it now and then “fall” it up later.  It comes in two different colors.

I also bought one pair of workout leggings and one pair of cute “run errands” sneakers

…won’t they look cute with…

these sneakers?! 🙂   Of course, my favorite “no show” socks are in the sale too!

Now, I grabbed several tops and/or sweaters and am hoping I will love them as much in person as I did online.  Here’s what I found…

This cute turtleneck came in 7 colors!

Look at this cute sweater!!  Eeeeks!  It came in so many fun colors, but my heart belonged to the pink.

And then looky here at this striped sweater 🙂 .  It comes in several colors as well.

I love a sleeveless top like this one because it’s light enough for warm days but can lean “fall” when September and October roll around.

When I saw this tee (it comes in other color combos) I thought it screamed “wear me to a Saturday morning flag football game” 🙂 .

Oh cozy twist front shirt, I will wear you all the time!

I bought several pairs of jeans.  I don’t know which ones I’ll keep and which ones I’ll return, but I was really pleased with their denim selection!  Here’s what I bought…

This distressed Rag & Bone pair.

This raw hem ankle skinny pair.

This pair of Joe’s skinny jeans.

Typically, I buy several jackets and coats, but this year, I just bought two.  I hope I love both of them when they arrive…

I loved the color of this suede moto jacket (it came in gray too)…and then this jacket

…most of my military jackets are green, so I loved how this one was gray!

This year, I found two pairs of booties that I loved…

Vince Camuto alwaaaaaaaaays has a great pair in the sale that I wear ALL YEAR LONG!  And then, I ordered these, so we’ll see what I think about them when they arrive…

…cute, right?  They come in many colors, but my heart was in love with the sesame suede.  I love that they’re “waterproof”!

Speaking of shoes, I bought these for Kensington…

…I love the pom on the Ugg!  And then I bought these for me to wear this fall…

…don’t those peep toe booties look “fall”?!

Several things I talk about all the time are also included in the sale this year.  The number one most asked about item in my wardrobe is one of them…

my favorite cami!!  You guys know that I have been wearing these FOR YEARS and wear one just about every single day!  They come in a gazillion colors and are in the sale right now!

That Hanky Panky underwear I swear by is also included this year as well as…

cozy blardigans 🙂 .

I mean…I didn’t even scratch the surface of this sale, but it’s a start, right?  Make sure you check out all of the beauty items and kids’ stuff too!  I always love to buy Christmas gifts for friends and family in the “home section” as well.  When my stuff arrives and I try it all on, I’ll let you know what I end up keeping and loving.

Okay, who wants to be one of the TWO winners of our giveaway?!  All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below!  Enter all week and then bright and early on Thursday morning, I will announce all four winners so that they can shop when the sale goes live to everyone.

Happy Anniversary Sale Friday, everyone!!  I am making this giveaway for both my friends in the US and Canada 🙂 .  Best of luck below!  If you’re not on social media, you can still enter by signing up for my daily emails.  To do that, click HERE.

    Question, Do you get rid of majority of your clothes every season? I have clothes 10 years old in my closet. I have so much similar…🤔🤷‍♀️ Maybe I am doing this wrong.

  • Kristine W July 12, 2019 at 9:02 am

    I popped into Nordstrom yesterday to scope things out and make a return. They were letting everyone with a card shop. So I snatched up another Blardigan. It’s a really pretty green. Will be great for fall. Sheaffer had it in her post yesterday. Will be definitely be shopping online also.

  • Angela Angelo July 12, 2019 at 9:05 am

    Please pick me!!

  • Laura c July 12, 2019 at 9:09 am

  • Raquel Whatley July 12, 2019 at 9:30 am

    After hearing you talk so much about your love for the blardigans, I am getting one! Question, which color do you find you wear the most? I am going between black and gray. Also, I adore those cami’s. I bought some based on your recommendation a few months ago and live in them. Even my teenage daughter has started to steal them from me. 😉

  • Kathy July 12, 2019 at 10:31 am

    Awesome giveaway—thank you! You picked some of my favorite items from the sale. 😉 I don’t need a rug, but love the one you chose for your office.

  • Megan July 12, 2019 at 11:02 am

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  • Debbra Weber July 12, 2019 at 11:45 am

    Fun giveaway and sooooo many cute items at Nordstrom!!

  • Andrea Clark July 12, 2019 at 11:48 am

    I would so love to win, especially since our French bulldog puppy took advantage of the time I spent ordering some of yours and Sheaffer’s cute recommendations by jumping up on the couch and destroying one of the accent pillows! No regrets though since I got such super cute finds!

  • Shari July 12, 2019 at 12:25 pm

    I love all of your picks, especially the RUG and the sleeveless thank! I may have to pick them both up myself!

  • Bev July 12, 2019 at 12:30 pm

    Thanks for offering the contest to Canadians! I read your blog daily so thanks for all that you do.

  • Mrs B July 12, 2019 at 12:30 pm

    How do survive the hot weather when you wear a cami under your shirt everyday?

  • Kimmy Ripley July 12, 2019 at 12:32 pm

    WOWZA!!! Thank you so much for the chance to win such a big gift card. I would be over the moon thrilled to be able to shop at Nordstrom. A store like that is not usually in my budget. I think I would have a blast spending $500 there.

  • Erika July 12, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    For years I’ve read your rave reviews about the blardigan and now as a mom of two babes two and under- I think it’s time I treat myself!! Buuuut….how does it wash/hold up? Those two sweet babes cover me in lots of messes and I’m hoping it is a toss in the washer and dryer & come out like new piece??? I don’t spend this much on one item often so I want to be sure!

    • Mix and Match Mama July 12, 2019 at 1:39 pm

      I wash and dry mine all the time!! It gets cozier!!

      • Erika July 12, 2019 at 2:49 pm

        Thank you for replying!

      • Genevieve Chappie July 12, 2019 at 7:42 pm

        Shay, what size did you take in the Halogen Cami?

    • Peach July 12, 2019 at 8:44 pm

      I debated too long on the adidas sneakers and my size sold out 🤦🏻‍♀️😩. Going to buy those lucky booties too because I already had in my shopping cart.

  • Nancy July 12, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Love that brown suede jacket. Could never afford to shop there. Thanks for the chance. 🙂

  • Mary July 12, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    I always love seeing your anniversary sale pics! Love the dress and sleeveless green top. Perfect for “fall” here in Florida. 😄

  • Brandye July 12, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    I’m ordering a blardigan for my sister. (One of several gifts I am getting.) She’s baring the brunt of our parents’ care and deserves a treat. Both have failing health at the same time. She’s a saint.

  • Tara July 12, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    I love that you chose several piece that can be worn now. Great picks!

  • Cheryl Cramer July 12, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Thank you so much for the chance to win a gift card to Nordstrom. I enjoy watching you, your family and friends. I look forward to seeing all the new things that you try and cook. I want to be in your family it looks like so much fun!
    God bless all of you

  • Kristin Gamon July 12, 2019 at 10:42 pm

  • GiGi Turner July 13, 2019 at 2:09 am

    Thanks for a chance to win! Love the rug you picked!

  • Heather July 13, 2019 at 7:33 am

    I already bought way too much, I think! Sure my kid due in a few weeks needs a purple baby north face jacket… OOPS!

  • Tandi July 13, 2019 at 9:42 am

    I see so many cute things! The shoes!! ❤️

  • Ralinn July 13, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    I especially love the rug you chose. The colors are perfect. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Annie Mans July 14, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    Hi shay,
    Thanks for your prayers about my little girl . We don’t have a slow cooker but I wanted to know how I could make your pork and beans over rice without a slow cooker. How would you do it? Again thank you so much for your prayers.

    • Mix and Match Mama July 15, 2019 at 6:14 am

      Ah! You could do it in the oven on low heat (like 225) for many hours (probably 5?). Make sure it’s covered (I would cover it with foil and then put the lid on to really make sure liquid doesn’t escape).

  • Paula July 14, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    I love all your picks. 
    Question, Do you get rid of majority of your clothes every season? I have clothes 10 years old in my closet. I have so much similar… Maybe I am doing this wrong.

    • Mix and Match Mama July 15, 2019 at 6:13 am

      I edit, donate and purge very often! I do have some older pieces in there though! I still have one leather jacket (that I still wear!) that’s almost 20 years old!

  • Karen Malory July 14, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    I tried to comment on your What’s Up post from May 29th about your problem with mosquitos and wondering what you ended up using. Did you get the Spartan eradicator or something else and did you have good results?
    I am being eaten alive this year and remembered people commenting on that post so went back and reviewed.
    Feel free to email me. Thanks for your time!

    • Mix and Match Mama July 15, 2019 at 6:12 am

      I tried two of the suggestions, but no luck. I’m still trying!!!

      • Debbie Ricks July 15, 2019 at 7:41 am

        Have you tried Avon’s Skin so soft? My dad would wear it ALL.THE.TIME when he was working outside! lol!

        • Mix and Match Mama July 15, 2019 at 7:48 am

          Yes! I did that all last summer but didn’t think I saw a difference.

  • Linzee July 17, 2019 at 9:50 am

    Adding that green sleeveless top to my cart!! 💚🍁
