Hello again! I’m back this week with another smocked top. Can you tell I love them? Because I do. Whoever decided these needed to make a come back is a G-E-N-I-U-S! They’re such a fun look for summer, and come in so many different colors/patterns. I’m really loving the tie strap detail on this top that was only $11.
I paired the top with my favorite new white shorts. I have almost the exact same pair from last year in yellow, and when I saw that Leith came out with a similar pair this summer in white I knew I needed to have them. I sized up to a small last summer in the yellow shorts, so I assumed I needed to in these as well, but I think I could’ve stayed with the extra small. The small size is a little looser than I would like, but they’re still cute!
I also added my new favorite wedges. I am obsessed with this pair! I think they’re the perfect summer wedge and they come in a few different colors. I actually originally wanted them in a cognac color, but they were sold out in my size so I went with gray instead. (Ironically, as soon as they came in the mail, Nordstrom restocked the cognac version). Anyway, about this sale…
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
What is it? Every year Nordstrom offers customers brand new fall items at majorly discounted prices. These aren’t the bottom of the barrel, nobody wanted them so let’s put them on sale pieces. No; these pieces are put on sale first, and then revert back to regular prices.
When is it? Early access opens for Nordstrom cardholders on July 12 and goes through July 19. Then, on July 20, the sale opens for everyone and lasts until August 5. While I’m not currently a cardholder, I’m definitely thinking about. Especially since you don’t have to get a credit card — you can open a debit card instead. And bonus, you get double the points for every purchase.
What should I buy? The anniversary sale is the perfect time to stock up on fall staples before they go back to full price. Jeans, sweaters, boots, accessories… They’re all great! I’m personally hoping that the BlankNYC suede jacket goes on sale again this year (and that I can get it before it sells out!).
