Can you believe it’s Labor Day weekend already? The summer really flew by! In addition to relaxing, and not doing any labor this weekend, it’s time to get our fall wardrobes in order!

This green pleated skirt is right on trend for fall, and it is easy to dress up or down this season. I love a versatile skirt!

These IT sneakers are also a classic shoe, plus they are under $100. Love! Also loving these lug sole boots which also happen to be waterproof.

The temperatures are still high where I live, are they high where you live too? The easiest way to rock the fall look, without sweating in a coat, is with nail polish and handbags! Loving these fall nail polish colors and a fabulous IT bag this autumn season.

Of course, what is Labor Day without BBQ and great sales! Here are a few of my favorite Labor Day Weekend sales and deals from around the web:

How to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

nordstrom anniversary sale blogger picks how to shop best

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:

What are you planning to get during the sale? Be sure to bookmark this post so you can check it out when it’s your turn to shop the sale!
