My Favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I am so obsessed with Anniversary Sale it's not even funny. Although I was a little disappointed with aspects of the sale - like the selection of flats - I still have some favorites. I try to buy items that are timeless and go with a lot since it needs to be worth it for the money. I try not to spend a lot on trendy items. I think all these pieces are investment pieces. See my picks below & tell me what you're buying!
A Timeless Riding Boot
I started eyeing these boots day one. I convinced myself I didn't need them. Then, I read Scheaffer's blog post on Pinterest Told Me To, this morning and I was hooked. (Her blog is one of my favorites, so stop by and add it to your reading list for sure). I'll let you know what the fit is like but they look ADORABLE on her and I convinced myself to try them on. Look at that gold detailing. These boots would look amazing with black or dark wash skinnies, skirts, leggings, the list goes on. These boots are timeless.
A Spacious, Classic Hobo Bag
This purse is gorgeous. I've been dying for a Michael Kors bag and although I need a black one, the brown color always gets me for fall. I tried it on in black in the store and didn't love it and I think it was just the color because I loved the brown. It's the large hobo which means it can fit all your essentials. I usually carry my iPad, phone, make up, a bottle of water, wallet and even a notebook if I'm going to work, so I definitely need space for a bag that goes with me to the office.
An Eye-Catching, Colorful Handbag
I love this kate spade bag. It's such a great bag for work or play. I'm loving the bow detail and this bright color, which I think is perfect for fall with brown, camel, grey tones, but it would go with anything really.
The Perfect Bag For Work
If you're looking for a great bag for the office this is it. I love it's structure and the "croc" detailing. It's leather and gorgeous, simple yet modern. It would definitely fit all necessary essentials.
A Statement Watch
This watch was such a great buy. I already had a Michael Kors one in a silver/gold mix (which I highly recommend to anyone who doesn't have an MK watch yet because it goes with EVERYTHING), so I wanted to get something different and fun. This rose gold watch is way prettier in person - the photo does not do it justice. I've already worn it so many times and it's just "rosy" enough that it still looks fine with regular gold so long as it's not tons of gold close to the watch. My other favorite watches are: 1, 2, 3
If you don't have one already, you NEED one. My skin is super sensitive and I have mild rosacea. I'm talking like newborn baby skin. I NEED my Clarisonic. I can't go a day without it. I use the "delicate" brush on it and a super sensitive cleanser and it's amazing. It makes my pores look more refined, diminishes breakouts and just makes my skin feel cleaner. This is your chance to scoop one up. I'm serious. Amazing. I never get excited about skincare/beauty products and I can't calm down about this one. No. Really. :)
This fragrance is on the pricy side, but you do get a lot for your money and it smells amazing. Girly, fresh, not too much, just enough of a scent. Love, love, love!


  1. Very cute finds, especially the boots and the brown hobo bag! I actually have a bag like the black croc one you found, but the shape and size are a little different. I love it and it's perfect for taking with me when I teach! :)

    1. Hi Alyssa! I did not like the MK boots in person, just an FYI. They didn't fit right. I did, however, LOVE the Tory Burch Brita ones and the bag was amazing. So beautiful in person, as is the Kenneth Cole bag.

      Thanks for stopping by!
