Friday Favorites #10 (NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE Edition!)

I am SO excited to share this week’s Friday Favorites.  When I started to do Friday Favorites – relatively not that long ago- I started by treating it as a gratitude list of sorts.  “These are the things that I’m thankful for and loving this week.”  But this week, my Friday Favorites include the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale… and that’s a whole other ball game.  (I started writing and included a few other Favorites, but I’m going to leave those for another week, because this post started to get a bit too long.)

For those unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, welcome.  This sale begins July 22nd through August 7th, but those of you with a Nordstrom credit card are getting early access and can purchase starting today.  This post is by no means suggesting that you open a credit card with Nordstrom if you don’t already have one, but it is encouraging you to plan ahead either way, because these sales sell out quickly!

In the widgets below, you’ll spot the prices, which will automatically adjust on the 22nd with the updated sale price.  I’ve put these categories in order based on how quickly they sell, as the first sections (footware and accessories) tend to sell out first.  Simply click the arrows on either side of the item to browse, or simply click the photo to shop.

Good luck, and let me know about your great finds in the comments section below!

NOTE: I am updating items if I see that they are sold out.  Though pieces are moving very quickly!  If you see something is sold out, please let me know and I’ll update it to a similar item ASAP!


In this section, I’ve included my recent favorite pumps, mules, and sandals.  All of which I’m currently wearing or intend to add to my arsenal ASAP!


My addiction to sunglasses is on the move and I’m still loving the large hat trend.  I’ve filled this section with both, plus an awesome belt that I just couldn’t leave alone.


I absolutely adore Nordstrom’s selection of dresses.  From bridal (I purchased my rehersal dinner dress there) to cocktail to casual and everything in between.  Their dresses fit well, are well structured and made, and are usually not too expensive to fit my budget.  Below, I’ve included casual dresses, leading to some of my favorite maxis, to a couple cocktail dresses that are perfect for summer and fall weddings.


The current trends in tops right now are not meant for my body long term.  While I love looks like off-the-shoulder, in all likelihood those tops won’t be living with me for decades.  For that reason, I’ve been waiting for this sale to invest.  And you better believe that I’m going to go all out!  I started with tanks, moving to long-sleeved, and ending with sweaters.



While I’m a big denim fan, I’m trying to vary my look a bit to amp up a less casual look.  I’m in love with looser cut pants and fitted skirts this year – looks that are breathable, but still provide a little shape on my smaller frame.  In this section, I also included jumpsuits (because I wear them EVERYWHERE lately) and athletic leggings.  On this healthy living blog, we have to fit some athletic wear, right?



What have been some of your favorite finds from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sales?

What are you most looking forward to purchasing ASAP?

Create a great life!

    Ooh there are some cute styles there. Nordstrom is a bit beyond my price range, but I love seeing the picks that some girls get from there! 🙂

    For some reason I have not been following the Anniversary sale – something which I may regret, but hopefully there will be one next year? However I have been eyeing a gorgeous Burberry blush coat that I’ve tried on at Nordstrom, and am thinking of making it my fall-winter splurge… But also a weight-loss motivator!

    Glad to have discovered your blog!

      Ugh – it sounds gorgeous! The Sale includes almost everything in the store, so it’s definitely worthy checking out. The pre-sale is right now, but the Sale for the general public will start on the 22nd. Hope you find your awesome coat! Can’t wait to see pictures. 🙂

    I plan on some beauty buys and some jewelry. And hand bags. We’ll see how long I stick to budget. 😉

      Baha – I totally feel you. I had to edit this out quite a bit, but I was debating on the unlimited budget, dream list scenario, too. Ahhhh, Nordy’s. You get me everytime…
