Make The Most Of The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale



Good morning! Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here. If you’re already aware of the sale, you know it’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on fall and winter clothing, summer must-haves, and accessory and beauty products that are on your wishlist. For those of you that don’t know…


Nordstrom releases brand new merchandise specifically for this sale at a heavily discounted price. Typically, stores release new seasonal merchandise at full-price and eventually discount them. Nordstrom items are released on sale for a period of time and slowly work their way back up to normal prices by August 6. 


If you’re a Nordstrom Cardholder, you gain early access to the sale, which means you get to shop the sale before it’s open to the public on July 21. If you’re not a cardholder but interested in shopping early, you can apply for a card here! Signing up is super easy. I absolutely love mine and it comes with great perks like Nordstrom notes (giftcards). The sale ends on August 6 and prices go back to normal. 


Items sell out quickly, so it’s important to go in knowing exactly what you want so that you don’t have to wait for things to be restocked. 

Is there anything missing from your wardrobe? Is it time for a new everyday watch? Are your fall and winter bags starting to look worn? Are your jeans torn from so much wear? (This sale is a great time to shop denim!) If you know what you need before shopping online or in store, you won’t spend nearly as much time blindly searching. That may sound silly, but it definitely saves time and ensures that you’ll purchase items that you really want!

These are the type of items that will sell out quickly based on last year’s top selling products:


Booties (the perfect transition bootie into fall!) | Jeans | Tote bag (obsessed with this, so versatile) | Moto jacket | Riding boots (a coveted item on super sale) | Wrap | Basic Tee (I have this in so many colors and wear them constantly) | Cross-body | Dress | Cardigan (bought this during last year’s sale and love it!

Don’t forget the beauty exclusives! I love shopping the gift sets, you never really find these beauty products for this price anywhere else. I stocked up on my favorite lip color and the serum I use to grow my eyelashes, which I NEVER get at this price.  

I hope this post is helpful for those of you who are new to the sale, and those of you who have shopped it in the past and need a little help navigating through it this time around!

Holiday Cozy + Cyber Monday










Off-shoulder sweater (40% off w/ code ‘F40BLF’) | Jeans (the fit is perfect, LOVE these!) | Boots | Similar bag | Earrings

Good morning! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with family and friends. I wasn’t quite ready to go back to reality today, I’m still in “sleep in, shop, and eat a lot of turkey” mode! 

I wore this cozy sweater constantly over the long weekend. It’s super soft and I went up a size for an oversized look. It can also be worn as a cowl-neck, so it’s office friendly too! You can get my sweater 40% right now with code ‘F40BLF’ at checkout. Here are a few of my favorite Cyber Monday sales I plan on shopping today:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must-Have






Caslon tee (under $20 comes in a lot of colors) // denim // BP. wedges (similar here and here) // Moda Luxe bag c/o (use code LILLY&GRANT at checkout for a discount!) // Madewell necklace // Kylie lipkit ‘Koko’ (this liquid lip in ‘Milkshade’ is the perfect dupe) // Michael Kors watch (similar on sale)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends soon, and this is by far my favorite item I bought. I’m all about a simple tee, I wear them at least once a week! Casual with cutoffs or jeans, knotted with a fun skirt, and sometimes to sleep in (they’re just THAT comfortable, what can I say.) I always buy mine a size larger for a breezy, effortless look.

A simple tee is one of those staple pieces that every girl should have in their closet. They’re just so versatile and can be worn in any season. I love pairing them with a cozy cardigan during fall! There are still a lot of options available from the sale: the tee I’m wearing comes in a ton of colors at under $20, I just ordered this one in grey (also under $20), and I’m thinking about getting this long sleeve crewneck that will layer perfectly with sweaters and ponchos.

How do wear a simple tee? Thanks for stopping by!
