I’ve said it time and time again, but I’ll say it again. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the BEST sale of the year. While I always try to shop sales, I specifically look forward to the summer Nordstrom sale to get a few key pieces for fall ahead of the season instead of having to wait until November when they go on sale again. It’s just not nearly as fun waiting for your favorite pieces to go on sale as it is getting them ahead of the season.
Looking ahead, this fall will again be about getting a few great classics like a quilted jacket or black jeans mixed in with trendier 70s inspired pieces (aka plenty of fringe and flowing sweaters). While I may always be looking for an excuse for a new pair of shoes (it’s that Imelda Marcos in me) it really is the time to splurge on a new pair. Truly great shoes never seem to go on sale (unless you’re a size 5 or 10 1/2), so getting up to 40% this season’s pairs is ah-mazing. I may have to add a pair of suede over the knee boots and those adorable ankle strap heels to my ever-growing closet.
