Hi loves! It will be time to update our fall wardrobe before we know it. Thankfully, Nordstrom’s anniversary sale has begun, just in time for your to sale on quality brands! Today, I will be sharing some of my favorite pieces that I have bought from this sale in the past. So how exactly does Nordstrom’s anniversary sale work?

When:
July 13: Early Access begins for Nordstrom cardholders!
July 21: Public Access begins.
August 7: Sale prices go back up for Fall.

How to shop Early Access:
This is a sale that truly sells out items within a few days. Don’t wait to purchase an item if you really want it! You can gain early access by applying for NORDSTROM CARD. Once you are approved, you can create a login in account and start shopping the sale  online immediately. Cardholders are also getting perks such as $100 in credit for alterations, and bonus reward notes!

With such an amazing sale, I have specific items that I will be getting. A lot of the pieces a fashion forward for fall, so I will be looking for pieces that I can layer. Here are some of the items that I will be keeping my eye on:

Blazers 

I have this blazer in a light pink color. If you are getting any of these blazers in petite sizing, keep in mind that they run large. I purchased mine earlier in the year in XSP. If you want a pink blazer similar to the one that I am wearing in the images able, I have also linked a similar one below.

Sweaters & Cardigans 

Before we know it, it will be time to start adding layers to our wardrobe. Your go-to pieces are going to be sweaters and cardigans.

Moto Jackets

I love adding a little bit of edge in the fall. You can do this effortlessly with a cool suede or faux leather jacket.

Dresses 

Can a lady have too many dresses? No, the answer is no! 😉

Handbags & Purses

Shoes & Boots 

Are there any specific items you would like me to feature in my next post? Feel free to let me know in the comments below. Happy shopping!

Romper: Target // Clutch: Francescas (pink option here) // Shoes: Kohls // Hat: Nordstrom

Happy Monday loves! I trust you all had a lovely weekend. This past Friday, I received some amazing news. I finally go accepted as an influencer of Like to Know it! I am working on a blog post to share some of my experiences as a blogger. For now, let’s talk about this lovely romper!

This floral front tie romper is from Target. I love how light it is and the pattern it has on it. Upon wearing it, I do recommend that this be used on a casual basis. This romper is a bit cheeky in the back, so it is certainly not appropriate for work (haha). Below I have also linked floral rompers from Target and other retailers that you may want to try out. Have you been using rompers this summer? Feel free to leave me a comment below!

I love how this watch was packaged when I received it. It came in a beautiful wooden box to make storage simple and elegant. To preserve your watch, you want to avoid extreme temperatures. Also keep in mind that this watch is splash proof, not water proof. So exercise caution when you are swimming or near a large body of water. To protect my watch, I take it off when I am doing things like washing my hands or washing dishes. These extra measures allow me to enjoy my watch for years to come!

The watch featured is this post is the zebrawood and rose watch. The gold lining pair perfectly with my Wonder Woman cuff from Alex and Ani. I was hesitant with a wooden watch because I was worried that the would might look cheap. Needless to say, I am impressed with the craftsmanship of the watch. The watch does not look (or feel) cheap. I have recieved so many compliments from my unique watch. It’s not every day that you see someone sports a well-made watch from wood!

Happy Monday loves! Summer dresses are the best because they are so light (and fun to wear). One of the best parts about Target runs is that you can get your groceries and also add some pieces to your closet too. 😉 I have linked off the shoulder dresses from Target and other retailers that I enjoy shopping from. After all, we all should be able to enjoy off the shoulder dresses at an affordable price right?
