Today’s the big day you guys! The big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 has officially begun.  This is the day my Mom used to take me out of camp (or whatever bull shit I was up to in July as a kid) and wait outside Clackamas Mall in Portland Oregon for the doors to open at Nordstrom. We’d get there bright and early, wait outside anxiously awaiting to shop till we dropped. It’s the big annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s time to shop, shop, shop!

You’re probably wondering why on earth we’re so excited over a stupid sale. Are they giving shit away? No, but they might as well be. This sale is unique because Nordstrom brings in brand new things, yes brand new, and marks it down up to 33% off for a limited time. Prices go back up on August 7th and you’ll regret whatever you didn’t grab. It’s great for adding new fall items to your closet that you’ll wear all season long (like my leather jacket I scored 3 years ago) or my go to Vans that I live in. There’s tons of deals from fashion, beauty and even home. So head on over to Nordstrom to shop it all.


Yesterday, Cathy and I headed to our local Nordstrom to shop the sale and snag some goodies. I obviously had to grab just about everything Madewell (shocker, right?). Nothing makes me happier when my favorite brands collaborate with the NSale though, it makes me extra happy. I grabbed these grey jeans (which are the exact same as these you’ve seen me in 100 times) and a fun blush peplum tee and topped with their field jacket. This jacket I already own in the slate color; it’s a closet favorite. So grabbing it in olive was an obvious choice. Not as obvious as these blush sneakers though. Sure I have a pair of pink Adidas, but those are light blush, these are dark blush… See what I did there? Need. Want. Love. They also run VERY small, I sized up to a 9 and I’m usually an 8 or 8.5.

I’ll be honest, the last few years the sale has been mediocre, but I found myself grabbing all of the shoes and lots and lots of tops. Basically I picked up every cool sneaker (guys, Pumas are BACK) and mules. All about the mule.

I’ll be sharing more on social media as well so don’t forget to follow along. But in the meantime, here’s what I’m loving from the sale…
