Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 from top left: oversize stripe tee / drop earrings (under $100) / ivory hobo bag (under $200) / eye pencil set (I’m addicted to these!!) / light blue v-neck sweater (under $50) / distressed crop jeans / chain booties (under $100) / chain loafers (under $100) / nail polish remover set (I love this remover and always stock up during this sale!) / mini satchel (I own this in yellow and love it! See review here) /

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is here! If you are a big spender, you already have access to the sale today. Every two days, another level has access-and you know who you are! If you are like me, and you don’t have an account at Nordstrom, then we are all waiting for public access which begins on July 28, 2021. I am waiting, not so patiently!

In the past, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been marketed as a way to snag great deals on new, fall merchandise. While this sounds great on paper, are you ready to shop for fall? I know I am not ready yet. I have found the best way to shop this sale is to stock up on essentials that I need all year long.

The two most important things I like to score a deal on during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are nail polish remover and fitness clothing. Yes, you read that right, nail polish remover! This set lasts me a full year, and I use it once a week. If you have been following me for awhile, then you know I am addicted to nail polish, and constantly changing the color of my nails. This requires a nail polish remover which is gentle on my nails, and gets the job done. This one does! I am a huge fan!! If you get nothing else from this sale, buy this nail polish remover! It is the first thing to drop into my shopping cart.

I also plan to stock up on a few new pairs of workout leggings. I love this pair, and I always buy a few every year during this sale. In addition to nail polish remover and leggings, I am excited for this set of eye pencils from Laura Mercier. I have been using these pencils for close to two decades, so this set is a dream!

Casual clothing is always a good option to stock up on during this sale too. I love this oversize stripe tee, these jeans, and this lightweight sweater which is great for foggy days during the fall season.

Chain details are a huge trend right now. If you are looking for something trendy to save money on during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 then these two pairs of chain detail footwear are for you. I definitely want to get at least one pair. Which pair do you love more? The chain detail booties, or the chain detail loafers? They are both fabulous!

I don’t really need earrings, but I want them! This pair of rose gold drop earrings are definitely going in my shopping cart! I am also eyeing this classic handbag by Coach. It’s a great price! Here are a few of my favorite things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 we can all shop online:

Really good deal-LOVE!) / plaid shirt (so ’90’s grunge!) / brown saddle bag (currently full price everywhere else!) / hand cream duo / black slides / light wash cropped jeans / black henley shirt / long sleeve black tee / dark wash straight jeans / gold hoops / black loafers (so very ’90’s!) /

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 is here! Today marks the first day Nordstrom cardholders can start shopping. Day one of the sale is open to Nordstrom’s biggest annual spenders, then it opens up based on spending level on August 7, 10, and 13. If you have a Nordstrom card, and you don’t know your level, log into your account to check; you might be lucky and have an early shopping date! If you are like me, and you don’t have a Nordstrom Card, we get to start shopping on August 19.

Last year a lot of my favorite items from the sale sold out within the first week. The biggest shopping days during the sale will be August 13 and 19, so if there is something you want bad-buy it the first day you are eligible to shop the sale! I will be at my laptop 9:30am on August 18 ready to shop my wish list above. These are all the items I plan to purchase. Aren’t they fabulous?

The fall 2020 season has a ton of 1970s and 1990s vibes. When you start shopping for fall, look for these elements in what you purchase. I also recommend looking for necessities when shopping this sale. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to stock up on basics, pajamas, lougewear, socks, and beauty products. You probably don’t need heavy coats and winter-like boots just yet.

Red plaid blazer for summer into fall

blazer trend fall 2019 fall 2019 street style chloe aby handbag fall 2019san jose street style

wearing: prescription sunglasses / summer lipstick / bold silver earrings / black tee (old, similar here) / bold silver necklace / red plaid blazer (new for fall!) / cuffed slim boyfriend jeans / black  belt with snake buckle / fall nail polish / bold ring / Chloe bag / black high heel booties (super comfortable!) /

I promise, I am not trying to make fall happen! It’s not going to happen! -Despite the fact that I had a Pumpkin Pie Latte last Thursday. #Guilty haha

I picked up this red plaid blazer for fall, and I am in love! It’s lightweight, so it’s an easy piece to wear right now, and into the early part of the fall season. It’s always nice to have a few pieces which reflect the upcoming fall season, yet still work on warm summer days. This is my key transition piece!

We have a lot of fog in the mornings, so a lightweight blazer is perfect for combating the chill the fog brings in when it rolls over the Santa Cruz Mountains, into the valley. A blazer is also a more structured way of amping up a casual jeans and tee look. It really elevates a basic outfit. Love that!

I wore this outfit last week to meet my friend Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun at Santana Row. We took blog photos, (of course-haha), then walked around, grabbed lunch, chatted, and walked around some more! It was nice to have a relaxing day with my friend. Earlier last week I was super busy helping my mom pack, and then I helped her move. So having some “me” time with Dawn was the recovery day I needed.

Now that my Mom has moved, I can finally get on with with my summer vacation, and having fun with my kids! We have another trip planned for later in the summer, so I need to have time to plan for it!

Since summer vacation is half over, what do you have planned before school starts?
