Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access has started a week ago for cardholders only. Finally for those who don't have a Nordstrom card, the wait will be over in hours. Starting July 18th the sale will be open to the public both online and in store.

Every year I did my due diligence to browse the sale since I knew about the sale only a couple years ago. Every year I had some good scores. I still love love love my Blondo boots after two years of continuous wearing in the winter. It fit my calf perfectly due to its elastic nature and it's water proof. This year's version has some modifications. It's half leather and half elastic material. I haven't personally tried it on but I expect the same performance from this brand. Another big score from the sale was my favorite Michael Kors watch. The oversized look wasn't for everyone, and I was apprehensive when I tried it on, but since my purchase I have been wearing it non-stop. If you are looking for an oversized watch, I highly recommend this brand. This year the anniversary sale has put just about every color metal available out there from the brand on sale here. I'm sure you'll be able to find one you love. I recommend that you do try it on in store for sizes. When I am not feeling for big chunky watch and want to go with a light feminine version, this Skagen version (which I also scored in the anniversary sale) was my go to watch. In fact wearing that watch and a David Yurman cable bracelet together is now a favorite combo of mine. This year Nordstrom has put a lot of Skagens on Anniversary sale again. Besides the fact that I love how sleek looking the designs are I also love the price point. Make sure that you check them out.

More recommendations -
- Hunter Tall Moto Rain Boot and Short Moto Rain Boot (Don't forget to get the socks to go with them)
- Ivanka Trump Didia Cutout Cage Open Toe Suede Bootie (affordable chic cutout booties for under $100)

Sale Alert: Hunter Fleece Welly Socks 30% Off

I don't see Hunter Welly Fleece sock on sale very often and $30 price tag for a pair of fleece socks seem to be a bit on the high side. So up to now I have been wearing my hunter boots without any lining. Even though the boots served as water resistant barrier, it wasn't very cold weather friendly.  My feet got cold after a few hours outside. So when I saw these socks on sale last week, I didn't hesitate and ordered a pair. My only hesitation was the color. There are six color options and I was debating between the charcoal and violet for a while before I settled with a boring but more versatile color - Charcoal.  I have to say that the socks made the boots very fitted.  I can even appreciate the warmth it will bring in the fall and winter months, even though the temperature outside now is unpleasantly warm. 
If you own hunter boots and are in need of the liner socks, this is a good opportunity to order a pair ... or two. I ordered the standard sized ones in size medium. It fits the original tall boots and these wedges very well. The short fleece socks are also on sale for 30% off.  There are also leopard cuff ones and stripe cuffed knit ones also on sale.

Loft 50% Everything Sale Ending Tonight and Kate Spade 25% Extra Off

Great news! The sold out Tory Burch Medium Fleming Shoulder Bag in Light Oak, seen on me here, is now being carried by Nordstrom here.

Just a quick post here before the 50% off sale at Loft ends tonight. Use code FIFTY.
Also Kate Spade is running a 25% extra sale right now on a bunch of sale items. Code MORESALE. I got the Catherine Street Mini Pippa for around $150 with this sale and love how many outfits I can create with it.
I recently bought a few items that I really loved so I want to share them here with you.

This Crochet Trim Short with 3 1/2 inch inseam one of my favorite pieces from Loft. I love the Linen texture and the color is amazingly versatile. It's a neutral that you really can pair with almost everything. The details of this shorts are amazing. The crochet trim is so delicately placed and the side stitching adds interest to it. I am wearing a size 00P here and I love how it fits me. The shorts do run a tad big on the waist, so do size down if need be. 
Did you notice the big bow under the bag in the picture below? I just love this detail.
The bag can hold a lot of things even though its size is small. The leather doesn't look like it will stand scratching and I do feel that color from the clothes can transfer on it easily, so I have to be careful to wear light colored clothes when using this bag.
When I put the outfit together I realized that the color blocking matches the shoes perfectly.
Kate Spade Catherine Street Mini Pippa (buy here, or from Nordstrom, Saks)
Sam Edelman 'Ollie' T-strap pump (sold out at Nordstrom, similar for only $38.5, the real thing)
J.Crew Factory lace tee (similar here)
Ann Taylor necklace (equally cute option by Ann Taylor

Love the shape of this bag so much. It reminds me of the beautiful Givenchy Antigona which has a current retail of $2280.
Do take note that the sale is a final sale. No returns and exchanges will be accepted.

Sale Alert: Today Only Extra 40% off J.Crew Sale styles

Stock up. 40% off sale is going on right now at J.Crew with code TODAYONLY. Find the pieces you've been wanting for, or just browse according to your sizes - J.Crew makes it really easy now to filter your size, and be surprised on your finds.

I picked up this Pleated Short in Cotton Pique in mint last weekend from the store and really love it. See it on me here. Size 00 fits me perfectly so for those of you smaller than me, it will be too loose on you. The material is a very sturdy woven cotton which I adore. I'm seriously thinking of getting it in black and navy, hoping to get something else for free shipping.

Note: I just found out when I tried to check out that the $150 minimum purchase for free shipping is BEFORE the discount. So as long as your purchase total before you apply the 40% off code is more than $150, J.Crew offers free shipping on the purchase. I don't know if it's meant to be this way or a fluke in their system. In any case it's great for us consumers.
