The week of early acces shopping has officially concluded and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open for everyone to shop! EVERYONE! RIGHT NOW! If you're new to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, all you have to know is that it's THEE sale to shop. Unlike other sales that may only list unpopular items they are looking to get rid of, the N Sale introduces next season's most coveted items at ridiculously reduced prices. Once the sale is over, prices go back up to original price. While I realize that shopping for fall in July may not sound like the most exciting time, it's important to stock up on the pieces you know you won't be able to get these kinds of deals on later. I knew that I didn't want to look back in October thinking that I should have gotten this or I should have gotten that. A no regret life is a better life, so I got to work.
I gathered up a list of my top favorites (including pieces I've already shopped) I know you'll absolutely be glad you introduced into your closet. Classic and versatile are what I look for when shopping ahead. This sale was no different. Because I live in California (a pretty seasonless state) I knew that I wanted to find pieces that were light, but warm and easily wearable throughout the year. I decided to stick to light tops + sweaters in neutral colors with more vibrant hues here and there. Since I'm thinking of year round utility, I knew that I'd be kicking myself if I didn't pick up the booties I wanted. They'll go great with jeans and a wrap cardigan come fall, but also in one week when I head out to the fair in a light sundress. Vision is key here. Find the pieces that you love and visualize their max potential. If you're like me, you'll see that pieces this good to pass up usually have a world of styling possibilities. I'm just glad to be getting them at such a steal!
Happy Shopping, everyone!
