Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks + $1000 Giveaway

Y’all, there are SO many good finds for the anniversary sale! Today is early access sale for Nordstrom cardholders (will open to the public July 21st) and I couldn’t be more excited! It literally feels like Christmas morning to me. I wanted to share my absolutely favorite picks during my first trip to shop the sale. Since I live like walking distance to the Nordstrom, I am sure I won’t be able to resist and will be shopping the sale the entire time. I promise to share all the goods! I found a lot of items for a steal of a price. I also will be sharing these items on insta stories for you to see it live AND I decided to add the video to this post so you can refer to it all sale long. Especially for the public sale!

If you have sizing or any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out! I also have a gift at the end of the post!

Dress: WAYF | Earrings: Bauble Bar

I was blown away by how many questions I got about this midi dress. Seriously THE CUTEST! Under $100 and def a Nordstrom Sale find!

Dress Up Buttercup Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

White Dress: Pleione | Booties: Steve Madden | Bag: Sole Society

Well, I thought this was a dress while trying it on but online says its a tunic. Either way, I love it as a dress and the bow back detail! You can wear it all year long! This bag is also an adorable leopard print. Ted is not a fan of leopard print so adding it to my wardrobe is one of the only fixes I can get!

Top: Two by Vince Camuto | Jeans: Caslon | Boots: Hinge | Bag: Sole Society (video: 00:18)

I was hesitant about this top but this might be my favorite look from the sale. Isn’t that crazy when that happens? It is the softest thing I have ever put on and a flattering spin on the classic flannel. I love the wash on these jeans but be sure to size down. I am wearing a 25 and it was pretty big!

Top: Caslon  | Cardigan: Halogen | Jeans: Caslon | Boots: Hinge | Bag: Sole Society (video: 00:49)

This cardigan had to be the winner of the bunch. SO SOFT. I would literally replace my home robe for this babe. It is on sale for $64! This top is also CLEARLY a winner during my trip since its in every other picture haha! You can never have enough white tees especially when it is under $20!

Literally another one of my favorites! This chambray top is SO SOFT and breathable. Nothing screams fall like some chambray and booties!

Skirt: Blank NYC | Sweater: Love By Design | Booties: Steve Madden | Clutch: All Saints – need to go in the store for bag (video 1:20)

I actually styled this skirt last year and thought it was so fun that it is back! I did buy it full price last season because remember after the sale, items go back to normal price. I don’t see this skirt lasting the entire sale since its DARLING so be sure to grab it fast if you have your eye on it!

Jacket: Charles Gray London | Shoes: Steve Madden 

Who doesn’t love a good trumpet sleeve black coat. This babe is under $200 and I felt total boss babe!

Top: Caslon | Jeans | Scarf: Madewell | Boots: Halogen (video 2:04)

My go to outfit during fall or the transitional period. These boots were a STEAL. I don’t think they will last long. My absolute favorites!! It also comes in black and a little over $100.

Top: Caslon | Jacket: Bernardo | Jeans | Boots: Halogen (video 2:30)

Ummmm this has to be the best leather jacket around. The color is BOMB and so is the sale price. I would wear this outfit like everyday if I could!

Top: Gibson | Jeans| Shoes: Blondo | Earrings: Bauble Bar 

Top: Caslon | Jeans | Shoes: Addidas

If there is one shoe I squealed about, it would have been these shoes. YALL the color is perfection in person. The picture and video does not do it justice. I have been looking for a pair for a while!

Jumper | Bag

This was one of those finds where I squealed when I found it on the rack. I mean how timeless is a black jumper that we can think of a million different places to wear this too. Everyone LOVED the last jumper I shared and this one is under $100!

You have a fun, bold, feminine style that I absolutely love. I especially like the black over the knee boots you tried on with your skinny jeans because they make you look like you have Nike long legs! Your outfit with the taupe sweater and camel colored booties is a great go to outfit with both style and comfort. I look forward to seeing how you piece together your outfits this fall!
