Hey, hey, hey! It’s one of my favorite days of the year!! It’s my annual ANNIVERSARY SALE ROUND UP AND GIVEAWAY plus, for the second year in a row, the sale is the exact same day as a day that we leave on a trip!
It’s double the fun in one Wednesday 🙂 !
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 sale 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, so last year, I posted early and received so much feedback from you telling me you’d like me to do that again this year too, so that when it does go live for your specific level (see below), you will already know what I love.
For those of you who aren’t card holders, you get to begin shopping on July 15th.
Here are the details…
Wednesday, July 6th (today): Icon status (must be a cardholder)
Thursday, July 7th: Ambassador status (must be a cardholder)
Saturday, July 9th: Influencer status (must be a cardholder)
Friday, July 15th: all non-card holders can shop
Last week, Nordstrom released everything that’s going to be on sale so that you can click through now to check it out and even add items to your Wish List so that you’re ready to go when you can shop (or shop today if you’re an Icon level cardholder).
This year, I’m kicking off the sale by doing something a bit different! Not only did I go through and pick out my favorite finds, but I asked my mom, Kensington and my office manager Caroline what they loved and are buying from the sale so that you get to see FOUR DIFFERENT GENERATIONS of finds for FOUR DIFFERENT STAGES OF LIFE!
So fun, right?!
I know that what I love isn’t always going to be what you love and/or fits your stage of life, so now, you can see my picks but you can also see what my gorgeous mama picked, my teenage daughter picked and my office manager who is a mom with smaller babies at home picked too. They’re going to order their items today and then after they arrive at their homes, they’re going to share a few pics with us of them in their favorite finds. Four women, four different stages of life 🙂 .
Here we go…
When I was going through and picking out my favorite items from the sale, I focused on ordering a variety of jeans for fall (some dark, some light…I won’t keep them all, but I love all of these brands and want to see which ones work best for me), I saw that my VERY FAVORITE BRA was in the sale as well as my VERY FAVORITE CAMIS!! I added a few activewear pieces to my car this morning as well as a JUMPSUIT, some boots, heels, a few sweaters, comfy shoes for outside and of course, did you see that my VERY FAVORITE BLUSH was in the sale too?! All of my favorite items from brands I love in one graphic 😉 .
