Manic Monday: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Edition

Some call it the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we call it Christmas in July. For a limited time, Nordstrom marks down brand-new Fall merchandise. It is the perfect opportunity to shop quality brands at discounted prices and get a glimpse into the newest trends. They do the markdowns in all departments too- it can get dangerous ladies! And, can be a bit overwhelming. But, Kris and I are here to help! We have gone through and picked some of our favorite must-have pieces and they are ALL UNDER $100! If you do not have a Nordstrom card, the sale starts this Friday, July 17th. If you do have a Nordstrom card, it started last Thursday. The sale ends for everyone on August 3rd and prices will go back up. It's time to scan your current Fall wardrobe, make your lists, and start shopping!

First up, my (Jack's) picks. I try to use this sale as an opportunity to get some classic yet on-trend pieces for Fall. There were some definite trends I noticed as I was shopping the sale this past week. Trends to have on your shopping radar include: jewel tones (think emerald green, maroon, and plum), flared denim, fringe, vests, shift and shirt dresses, ankle booties, over the knee boots, drapey collars on jackets, and felt hats. These are my picks:

Here are my (Kris) picks for you! And yes, we picked the same necklace (not planned) so clearly  it is a MUST have!!

We have picked a couple of things from other departments too! We love buying both shoes and jackets/coats for the kids. Several years ago my friend suggested buying a 1/2 size larger in kids shoes and that has always worked out perfectly. The Voluspa candle set is a great purchase too (think future teacher, housewarming, last minute gifts) and the scents are amazing this year!

Have a great week! Let the shopping commence!
