How I Spent $100 at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Picks for Juniors

Happy Friday pretties!  Oh happy day, my packages finally arrived from shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I wanted to do this post last week but I was still waiting for the mules to come and didn’t want to post an incomplete outfit.  But you got Craig’s anniversary sale picks for men in it’s place so I count that as a win!

My approach to this year’s sale was pretty much the same as usual. I didn’t really set a budget but I did try to focus on freshening up some basics and adding at least one new fall trend.

For my classic basics I went with this lightweight cardigan (which I can wear almost year-round) and a v-neck tunic t-shirt that will transition nicely between summer and fall.

For my fun fall trend, I couldn’t resist these embroidered velvet mules. When the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog came out, these were the one item that I circled like a little kid at Christmas!  Fun shoes are becoming one of my favorite ways to add interest to an outfit.

My total for these three new items came to $120 but I had a $20 Nordstrom Note to apply bringing it down to just $100. These frayed hem jeans are also from Nordstrom (and my favorite pair) but I already had them so they didn’t factor into my total.  P.S. I apologize in advance if links are sold out. Some pieces are getting restocked, so keep an eye out!

Picks for Juniors

After Craig did his menswear post last week, my daughter Aubrey got her feelings a little hurt.  So I let her get in on the fun and pick out some of her favorite pieces for juniors from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  She had to one up her dad by going one step further and putting them into seven days of fall outfits!
