Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide

The best sale of the year is officially here…the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and y’all it’s SO good! Today the sale is officially open to the public!

Today, I’m highlighting my favorites from the sale. The sale can be quite overwhelming so I wanted to share my essentials that you should try and snag as soon as you can! Items tend to sell out quickly during the sale so I would recommend purchasing your staple items on the first day. Think Tory Burch Riding Boots, AG Jeans, Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee Boots, suede booties, Tory Burch handbags, etc. Once you’ve snagged your ‘I have to have that!’ items before they’re sold out, you can go from there! 

Also, to shop my favorite Fitness/Workout Wear picks as well as my Beauty must haves, click over to the ‘Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017’ in the top right hand corner of the menu. From there, a drop down menu will appear and you can click into whichever sales round-up you would like to see!

I will be continuing to share my favorites throughout the sale as well as reviews from the items I’ve purchased so be sure to check back! 

Now, on to the best part, the sale! Happy Shopping babes! (Click on the image to shop!)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Favorites

I am a serial beauty buyer which is one of the many reasons why I get so excited for the Beauty Exclusives during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Being a self-proclaimed product junkie, I always jump at the chance to try out new products, especially for such amazing prices!

Below is a round-up of my current favorite finds in the Beauty Exclusives section of the sale. There are so many amazing products included in the sale but there are a few I definitely wanted to call out that I really love/am excited to try! I’m highlighting everything from make up to skin care to hair care (including amazing hair tools!) and more. Click on an image to shop!


I have always been a fan of Laura Mercier products. They’re of such an amazing quality and the colors are always so pigmented, which I love. The colors feel like velvet to the touch and blend seamlessly! The eyeshadow and blush colors in this palette look gorgeous!

I’ve heard amazing reviews about the Impressions LED Makeup Mirror! One of my favorite features about the product is that it does not require a plug to be turned on making it perfect for traveling.


The Kiehl’s Jumbo Creme de Corps lotion is my all time favorite body lotion. When I first tried it, I was a bit hesitant since it’s more on the expensive side. But y’all, this stuff is amazing! It will keep you moisturized all day long. Also, the jumbo-sized bottle is huge and lasts for a year (perfect timing to stock up again during the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!).

I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury bronzers and blushes. The colors are gorgeous and apply beautifully on the skin. I’m excited to try out the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Blush Palette, which also comes with a brush perfect for on the go touch-ups!

I am so excited to try out the Hourglass Ambient Diffused Light Palette. Girlfriend, don’t get my started on highlighters! About a year ago I was on the hunt for a new highlighter and stumbled across the Hourglass Ambient Powder and instantly became obsessed. That being said, I’m excited to try out this palette which features a highlighter, blush and a bronzer.

When I saw that the Alterna Caviar set was included as part of the sale, I instantly added it to my cart. My hair has a good amount of heat damage since I’m constantly using curling irons, blow dryers and straighteners on it. Also, about two years ago I absolutely fried my hair while we were in Italy due to a converter breaking. My hair has never quite been the same since then even though I’ve tried countless products. I’m dying to see what the Caviar Set can do for my hair! I’ll definitely do a review for y’all to share my results!

What beauty products are you hoping to snag during the sale? Also, I’d love to hear if you have any beauty recommendations, I’m always interested in trying out new products!

Thanks so much for reading lovelies and happy shopping! xo

Madewell White Tie-Front Shirt (closet staple!) | Target Bralette | One Teaspoon Jean Shorts | Target Pink + Orange Fashion Scarf | Express Wedges – old (similar here – and on sale!) | Purse – old (similar here) | Ray-Ban Aviators | Kendra Scott Earrings | Ettika Necklace | Gold Cuff | David Yurman Bracelet | Mac’ Pink Pearl Pop’ Lipstick 

This summer I’ve been loving the neck scarf trend. There’s something so chic about it and lately I cannot get enough of it! It makes me feel like I belong in an old-time convertible driving up the PCH. I’ll bring myself back to reality! Anyways, neck scarves add a touch of femininity and instantly transform the overall feel of a look. You can style one with a sundress, a pair of jean shorts and a white tee or tank and instantly have an effortlessly chic look. There’s also quite a few ways you can style a neck scarf (or even a bandana) to make it fit the look you’re going for. I am a fan of wearing one in my hair and even tying one around my handbag to add a pop of color! I purchased this orange and pick neck scarf from Target only $10. I’ll definitely be going back to Target soon to add a few more neck scarves to my collection (I’m loving this and this one too!). 

I also have to talk about this white tie-front shirt. This blouse is a must have closet staple y’all! There are a million ways to wear it and trust me, it will never go out of style! It’s so easy to dress up or down. I’ve dressed it up with a skirt and heels and also have even worn it as a cover-up over a bathing suit for a pool party. I love the clean, crisp, simple feel this shirt brings to any outfit. 

Do y’all have a favorite neck scarf or way to style one?! I would love to see your favorites!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day!
