With lots of people traveling this time of year and headed to places to spend time with family and friends, I’ve rounded up some budget friendly finds that you can wear to both casual and dressed-up affairs. Here come all the plaid and sparkly finds!
GREY HERRINGBONE PUFFER VEST – the perfect vest for wearing to a cozy gathering among friends. Kick up your feet while sipping hot chocolate and keep warm in this vest.
PLAID SHIRTDRESS – The fabric print of the holiday season! Wear it with booties or OTK boots, or wear it over your favorite pair of leggings.
PLAID BLANKET SCARF – I love the size of this scarf. Wear it multiple ways: around your neck, as a cape, or as a blanket. It comes in 12 different colors/patterns so you’re bound to find one that matches your outfit. The perfect accessory for packing when traveling, too.

It’s that time of year again – the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! What is this, you ask? It’s when all the brand new Fall inventory comes to the store. All of the new items are marked down (I’ve seen as much as 50-60% off!) during the sale and then, go back to their original prices. So, what are the dates to keep in mind?
July 14 to July 21 – get early access if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder
July 22 to August 7 – Open to everyone
August 8 – Prices go back to their original
I didn’t quite understand the hoopla around this sale until a few years ago. But, some of the markdowns on the new inventory are phenomenal. You’ll want to shop during the early access sale. If you don’t already have a Nordstrom card, I would highly encourage you to apply for a debit card (tied to an existing debit card you have – no credit check run), or a Nordstrom credit card. With either option, you can shop the sale early before certain things run out. And, on top of that, you earn 2 points per dollar spent – when you accrue 2,000 points, you get rewarded with a $20 gift certificate.
So, what are some of the good finds you ask? This is always an opportunity for me to score great deals on designer items I might not otherwise purchase during the rest of the year. I always head to the purse section as I find this is an investment that’s worthwhile for me. I’ve already ordered this versatile bag (comes in 4 colors: black, baby blue, pearl, and beige) – great for work bag or weekend getaway. Also, I’m keeping an eye on this gorgeous leather bucket bag. It is currently marked down to $546 (down from its $1095 price tag). Check out some other gorgeous and amazing purse finds:
Expandable tote (4 color options!)
Crossbody bag (4 color options!)
