Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wants

I'm sorry to deprive you of your random roundup two weeks in a row, but it's tradition that I outline my wish list for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and since I plan to share everything I bought one week from today, I wanted to give you a little appetizer this week of what I plan to be shopping for! If you've never shopped the anniversary sale before - it's basically a PRE-sale of all the fall items. You're not shopping clearance stuff or last season stuff, you're shopping for fresh and new pieces before they're even sold to the public. It's kind of a big deal, and I save all of my Nordstrom notes throughout the year so I can splurge accordingly. I have $420 in notes saved up!!!

Admittedly, I never got my catalog! I'm not sure why! I did get the men's catalog, which was really short and abbreviated. I was waiting for the full catalog, but it never showed up. So, I'm not sure if they just didn't send me one since the card is in the husband's name and they figured he'd be only interested in men's stuff anyway, or if someone stole it, or if Nordstrom is just that cruel and deprived me of it, but it never arrived!! Luckily, my favorite Nordstrom SA, Amber, could feel my pain miles away and sent me her catalog all the way from Chicago. So. That is how I am able to share my wants with you now!

Clockwise from top left: Halogen Windowpane shift dress $64.90 After sale $98 | Rebecca Minkoff Lexi Bucket Bag $250.90 After sale $375 | Halogen Lace pencil skirt $45.90 After sale $69 | Vince Adley Mid-heel sandal $284.90 After sale $425 | Ivanka Trump Tenice strappy pump $89.90 After sale $134.95 | Rebecca Minkoff Moto Hobo $216.90 After sale $325

I always gravitate towards bags and shoes first - I can't help it! It was tough to decide on clothes because many were styled in layers, so I'll just have to take my time in those sections in real life! I ended up making an appointment the first day of early access on July 9th. You can expect a full recap on Friday because I know I will be excited to share all the details with you!

If you are curious and didn't receive a catalog - you can see it online in its entirety HERE.

And if you're wondering how you can shop the sale one week earlier than the rest of the world, the details are HERE.

And if you still don't get the hype but want to see what I scored last year, you can reminisce HERE.

So, spill it - what will you be shopping for?

Farmer's market

Sunnies: Ray Ban | Necklace: Express | Bag: Longchamp | Top: LOFT | Bottoms: Express | Shoes: Vince Camuto

This is totally a weekend look. I feel like I should be headed to the Farmer's Market on a Saturday morning shopping for succulents. But that's why I love this outfit. Because it's super easy and relaxed to throw on without thought. Everything is soft and comfy to move around and run errands in, but it still feels a little more put together than an oversized tee and jeans. This print is so fun! Have you seen it in the maxi dress and pants also?! Obsessed!

Date night

Originally posted on Instagram here

I feel like I've had a ton of casual looks on the blog lately, so I welcomed the idea of doing something a little bit dressier, and sassier at that. I just scored this short sleeved olive tee during LOFT's most recent crazy sale, and I could not be happier! I've been accumulating a lot of olive in my wardrobe, but somehow, I'm lacking in the short sleeved department. This relaxed tee drapes perfectly, but still feels figure flattering.

Sunnies: Vince Camuto (option) | Earrings: Express | Necklace: Vince Camuto (option) | Bag: Vince Camuto (crossbody option) | Top: LOFT | Bracelet: Purple Peridot | Rings: Mindy Mae's Market (exact here), Nordstrom (option here and here) | Skort: Express (option) | Shoes: BCBG (option)

Speaking of figure flattering - this is the first time I have worn this skort in warm weather sans tights (see the other times I have worn it here and here). The skort plus bare legs make me look like I'm 6-feet tall, and I'm certainly not, but I will take it! I'm kind of wishing I had purchased the wine colored one now. Oh well!
