The months of August and September can be a little overwhelming to browse because you aren’t sure what season to buy for! Today, I’m chatting about the best transitional dresses to wear during these in-between months – one of my personal favorite pieces to wear daily. It’s easy to get caught up in fall sweaters, but don’t forget that we still have almost two full months of summer heat! Dresses are one of the best pieces to wear as we go from summer to fall because you can easily swap your sandals for booties and a scarf later.

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going live to the public TODAY, things are sure to start selling out even faster. I wanted to go ahead and round up items in two BIG categories that tend to be stocked pretty heavily. The denim and cardigan options in this year’s sale are EXTENSIVE, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed, so I’m breaking them down one by one in this Nordstrom sale round-up below!
If you love a good cozy cardi, then this year’s Nordstrom sale was made for you! SO many cardigans on sale in a rainbow of colors that it’s so hard to choose just one! Here’s a rundown of my favorites this year:
• The Madewell Rydercardigan is back this year + it’s always a bestseller. Super soft, runs TTS. Last year I got it in brown and the blush one this year has my name written all over it!
One main denim trend that I’m seeing this year is CROPPED denim. It’s everywhere in the form of skinny jeans, raw hem jeans, and even flare jeans. Other things to look for are high-waisted styles, distressed denim, and classic dark washes.
I hope I prepped you enough with this post about Nordstrom’s Anniversary Salebecause Early Access is in full swing! One of the first things I like to stock up on are the beauty steals and deals. I spotted so many great products included in the sale and have a feeling they won’t last on the shelves. In today’s post I’m sharing a TON of my picks that I currently own and use on a regular basis. (I’ll also be posting a full IGTV video recap on my Instagram too!) I recommend shopping now, so you can mark everything off your list and update your beauty routine. Keep reading for the best beauty buys in this year’s Nordstrom sale!
I’m always looking for ways to keep my hair looking its best, and I leave it to the right products to help me achieve that. Brands like Aveda and Drybar have always been favorites, so I’m definitely stocking up on both of those! Also a favorite is Alterna, and there jumbo bottles are included in the sale!
I’m a true product junkie, so I’m really excited to see so many makeup sets exclusive to the sale – so you don’t want to miss out. With brands that rarely go on sale, like Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Lancome in the mix, it’s your chance to splurge on luxury makeup without regret.
Skincare products can get super expensive, so I like to take advantage of the sale to test out high-ticket skincare brands. I have my eyes on picks from Kate Somerville and Lancome. Plus La Mer is topping my list of sets to try.
If you have ever considered trying a professional-grade styling tool, this is the time! Quality heat tools are important so you can minimize damage and keep your hair healthy. Nordstrom covered the full spectrum of haircare tools in their sale with pro-quality blowdryers and irons – I use my T3 heat tools religiously!
There are so many new innovations in the skincare world that I’ve been meaning to try. I actually picked up the NuFace’s Facial Toning Device, and I’m also really interested in the microneedling set. My skin needs all the TLC it can get after all this traveling.
Yesterday, I got to preview the 2018 Nordstrom Sale before Early Access began (SO much sale goodness this year)! It’s always helpful for me to be able to touch and try-on everything in advance to give you guys accurate info/details once it starts. And although I couldn’t try every single item on, I did have some standout favorites from what I added to my (very full) dressing room. See below for what I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and what I think you guys should be looking for this year.
I’ll be adding mirror selfies and try-on sessions throughout the day over on my IG Stories and will eventually add ALL the photos to this post!
Each year, Nordstrom gives us a tiny peek at what to expect in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale when they release the official sale catalog. But time around, they gave us a HUGE look at what to expect when it comes to SHOES. The sale shoes are always my number one priority, and I always hit up that department first. So I knew that I had to dedicate my first blog post to the very best shoes on sale this year! Below, you’ll see all of my picks from booties, to flats, to heels to tall boots, and I’ve noted which are under $50 – YES UNDER $50 y’all!
So many styles are covered in studs this season! I’m loving the little edgy details that I’m seeing on everything from booties to heels and loafers to mules. Surprisingly, when paired with suede the studs can look quite chic! I definitely encourage trying out this trend on at least one pair of shoes from the sale.
TREND TO WATCH: SLINGBACKS
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t real sure what to think about all the slingbacks in the sale – until I tried them on. These are not the old school versions that come to mind when you hear the word “slingback.” These updated styles are very feminine and flattering on the foot. Look for them in both flat and heel versions.
TREND TO WATCH: MULES
Mules are back for another season! I’m so glad because I basically live in this super comfy slip-on style, and I’m STILL wearing the ones I snagged from last year’s sale! This year, we see them in more colors, embellished with bows and with chunky heels.
