Here’s the Nordstrom Sale Schedule:

Pulled from Nordstrom, here’s the schedule:

  • August 13 – All cardmembers are allowed to shop early access. Depending on Nordy Club status, you may be allowed to shop earlier.
  • The Anniversary Sale becomes open to the public August 19-30, with prices going up August 31st.

  • Favorite anything now so you can shop later — or check back at this post for updates!

My Favorites: Women’s in the Nordstrom Sale

You have to grab this, this, and this Barefoot Dreams sweater. These ones always get sold out fast – so jump on it! They’re especially great if you are working that #remotelife. Also, check out these loungewear favorites below.

I love that boot cut jeans are on their way back. These ones are fabulous.

Not too many dresses on here, but I love a good discounted Eliza J.

Women’s Accessories Favorites in the Nordstrom Sale

Not too many handbags this year, but I did see a lot of sunglasses like these ones. I love how discounted they are.

My Favorites in Shoes in the Nordstrom Sale

If you’re shopping for the Anniversary Sale, you should always check out the shoe section. They have a good selection of men’s and women’s tennis shoes and also a good selection of booties this year.

Men’s Favorites in the Nordstrom Sale

Many of the best deals for men’s is in dress wear and sports coats. Such great deals on suits, you cannot find at these prices anywhere else.

My Favorites in Home in the Nordstrom Sale

Barefoot Dreams makes their appearance again in the home section. Not too much here this year, but the blankets are at a good price.

Nordstrom Sale Beauty Favorites

I’m a big fan of this curling iron, and I am pretty happy with the discounts they have on beauty this year.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a coveted sale Nordstrom, the department store, holds once a year. Typically in the month of July, this year the Anniversary Sale was moved to August due to unforeseen circumstances.

Should I Shop the Anniversary Sale?

By all means, yes! Whether a cardholder or not, the Anniversary Sale allows for anyone to buy the latest fashion at a discounted price before being made public.

I Can’t Shop the Sale Now, Should I Wait?

If you are not eligible to shop the Nordstrom sale by all means, wait until you can! There are so many great deals this year.

But did you know you can “wishlist” certain Nordstrom Sale items and go back to buy them when you are available to shop? All you need to do is create an account on the Nordstrom website.

Happy shopping! I hope you find the BEST deals around!

Blog Update: New Year, New Beginnings

January 5, 2018

Happy 2018! Well, we are a few days into the New Year. Mine certainly started out with a bang! A case of bronchitis. Thankfully, I was able to get myself going on meds right away and spent the whole week resting while it was sub-zero temperatures outside. Perfect excuse to stay in, I must say!

The 12 Days of Shopping Day Four: Quilted Parka + Cozy Layers

December 9, 2017

Day four of my “12 Days of Shopping” series is upon us, and this one is good! Why? Well, it just so happens that this parka is 50% off at Nordstrom — making it under $100! And, I must say that it is probably the warmest parka I have owned. REALLY! This parka is uniquely lined and even has an attached hood on it for those extra cold days (like today). I have been wearing this coat practically everywhere since I bought it, no joke. It is a perfect deal, especially for those who want a coat out of the norm this year.

The 12 Days of Shopping Day 2: Tech Gift Guide




After a successful day one of my first ever 12 days of shopping gift series, I thought I would bring to you something out of the norm. This gift guide was designed for anyone on your wishlist. I tried to keep it gender neutral, but couldn’t resist adding in the smartwatch and the iPhone cases as a touch for those basic gals like myself out there.

These are all awesome items that I would pick for myself, my boyfriend, or anyone else. I love giving gifts and what better way to showcase my taste for gift giving then this handy guide? I am sure all of these gifts will come in handy for 2018 and beyond.

My favorites on the list: The MICHAEL Michael Kors smartwatch, the marble iPhone case, the activity tracker, the sport wireless headphones, and the Bose sound system. The one place that I found all of these great gifts was on Nordstrom’s website, actually. I never realized how many tech gadgets they actually carried before making this list and seeing a lot of these on other bloggers’ gift guides as well.

Enjoy these gifts and others like it – be sure to click on any of these links, or…

12 Days of Shopping Day 1: Wool Camel A-Line Coat

December 4, 2017

12 Days of Shopping Day One: Camel A-Line Coat



Today starts off my “12 Days of Shopping” series on my blog. I am going to round up my holiday favorites. These favorites will take you into the new year with ease. I will pack you full of gift guides and shopping advice for yourself too, because, you deserve a little some some. Everything here can be found in the links and by shopping the post below.



A few weeks ago I went on a coat shopping spree! Well, not really, but kind of. I scored this coat, as well as another coat I will be featuring on here in the next week or so. Both coats were $100 off the original price at Nordstrom. I am not sure why, but not too many people knew about this amazing sale. I feel like we all go after the “it” coat each year and wind up with the same ones. I, on the other hand, love individuality. This camel wool coat is one-of-a-kind.




Finding a nice dressy coat for me is not easy. First of all, I have slender shoulders and a slender waist. At the same time I am also pear shaped, so my hips don’t lie. The last time I bought a nice coat like this was in college, and I still wear it after eight years (has it been that long??). I still wear that coat and plan on continuing wearing it for years to come.




I am a sucker for Ellie Tahari. Wouldn’t you know, after trying on a bunch of OKAY or unflattering, yet popular styles, my pick without even noticing is this camel wool blend coat? Of course, it is because I am such a creature of habit.  The A-Line is perfect for many body types, including mine. Now, one thing I seriously love about this coat is the gold detailed buttons. They give the coat a modern and sleek look.

I sized at a small petite, and it was the perfect size for me. This coat is seriously so comfortable and warm – and also features a satin and sleek lining. I feel like a million bucks in it. It’s a classic and flattering style that anyone would look amazing in. What works about it is it buttons up all the way to the top, so you have that added coverage on a cold and windy day (and we do get a lot of those here in Chicago).

Soft and warm layers are so important to me in the winter. I am not so much about wearing whatever is on trend – I need to stay warm! I am always cold no matter what. The perfect pairing for this coat is a soft cashmere sweater, much like the one I am wearing in this post. The cashmere sweater I am wearing was picked up on the same shopping trip. 100% cashmere and priced comfortably at $69 — now I call that one heck of a deal! Cashmere is a perfect choice if you do not want to feel bulky, but feel warm at the same time.

I did not own a cashmere sweater until a few years ago when I received the same deal at Nordstrom. Every year they carry just about every color on earth. If my wallet allowed it, I would have bought out every single color – and I’m not even kidding. It’s so classic to wear for any occasion and lasts for years. I am pretty sure I am going to have to go back and get them now that I praised them so much.
