Budget Stylista: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Heeeere!

In July, some people look forward to the 4th, getting exited about the BBQs, beers and bathing suits. Others look forward to outdoor festivals, days spent in sundresses sipping iced coffee, eating lunch outside, FINALLY having weather warm enough to eat fro-yo and wear those 9,000 pairs of sandals and wedges sitting pretty in their boxes.

I, however, am not “some people.”

July for me brings a different kind of excitement. An excitement in the form of warm colors in chestnuts, cognacs and browns, wools and greys… boots and coats, sweaters and scarves paired with slashed prices…well there really is no containing my excitement for all of it!

For me, July is all about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

And it is BACK baby.

And since you are too busy getting your tan on, you might think it’s okay to wait until September to start thinking about fall. But I’m here to tell you that now is the PERFECT time to stock up on some fall staples and wish list items. Besides, your skin will thank you in 15 years for the break (and your wardrobe will thank you in a few short months).

It starts TODAY so strike while the iron is sizzling ladies! Grab the things you know you love (Hanky Pankys are slashed to $12.90!) and invest in boots that, while still pricey, are far more affordable than their post-sale price. From Frye to Steve Madden, this year’s sale has no shortage of fabulous boots, booties, flats, wedges and everything in between.

There are tons of adorable capes and perfect satchels that take you from class to the mall to dinner with no need to switch out your bag. What’s not to love about that? Plus, watches and jewels in rose gold, designer sunglasses majorly marked down… take it from me, this is one sale worth heading away from the light and towards the AC for.

Here are a few of my favorite Anniversary Sale picks- Check out the whole catalog here!

    I actually ordered that maroon floppy hat the second day of the sale. I fell in love with it.

    I’ve never seen them go on sale, but if your niece has smaller feet (up to size women’s she can also wear the crledhin’s Uggs at a fraction of the cost, just like they were on sale! I wear a women’s size 6-6 1/2, and can wear a size 4 Ugg kids boot. A size 8 should be able to wear a size 6 kids. You can save anywhere from $ 30- $ 40 dollars by doing this, and they’re the exact same boots as the adult, and come in short, tall, and everything in between. Check out for a good selection, it’s where I get mine, and they have free shipping and returns, and do overnight shipping free of cost.
