Happy Boxing day ladies!  I spent the day at the mall shopping and battling the crowds and it was kind of worth it.  I did make out with several pieces, but honestly, the sales are so good online, I'd skip the hassle and just shop from the comfort of home. 

Also, it's the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale (!!) so I'm sharing all the pieces I've tried on, and while mostly everything I'm sharing is marked down, there are a few that aren't on sale.  However, I'm linking them anyway plus to the same or similar items on sale elsewhere so you can snag them.

Finally, I'm sharing a huge round up of all the post-Christmas sales happening around the web at the very bottom of the post, so be sure to scroll through.  I'll have a full Weekend Recap up tomorrow, with details from Christmas and more.  Hope you're having a great day!


Today is the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I'm still waiting on a couple pieces to arrive, but it seriously has me so excited for Fall!  Don't get my wrong, I love Summer, but there is something about the cool, crisp weather, layers, and neutrals of the season that has me excited for all the outfits I'm going to wear!

Of course I had to round up some final pieces for you ladies that I'm loving, because as of tomorrow, everything goes back up to full price.  Now is a great time to grab new Fall merchandise at a fraction of the regular price for your wardrobe.  Happy shopping!

I'm back for round two of try-ons from the Nordstrom sale (see round one here + what I purchased).  I went back a few days after the sale opened, to find an uber picked over store that was far less crowded.  

However, there are fortunately still many great pieces left online, but the sale only goes until this Sunday!  So stock up now if any of these Fall items catch your eye because they go up to full price on August 8th.

This cardigan was nice, but it runs very big.  I'm wearing a size small in the photo and felt I still needed to size down (I'm normally a medium).  I really love this one instead, but I would lose the belt.

Are you ladies sick of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet?  I'm still perusing the sale pages on the daily because while I've heard they aren't re-stocking, I keep seeing various items being restocked!  What I like to do, is add items to my Wish List and check that first--it will tell you if it's back in stock and then you're not searching endlessly for it.

With that, I already shared a haul video of my purchases, but I wanted to share with you what I bought, wearing the items, with some options on how to style the pieces now, for Summer, and later when the temperatures get a bit cooler.  I'll be honest, I love me some Summer, but I'm seriously excited for Fall!  Call me crazy, but layers, moto jackets, boots and more got me like #inserthearteyedemojihere

Photo overload after the jump...

As I mentioned on the weekend, I went back to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to scope out the shoe section.  If you've never been before, the shoes and the clothing are on different floors, and by the time I was done in the fitting room, I was not about to venture down there and battle the crowds. 

That said, I couldn't stay away for long, so I'm sharing my top picks for the shoes in the sale, how they fit, colour preferences and more.

I hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on opening day and was there first thing in the morning.  I had an appointment with a Stylist who took my Wish List in advance, had everything in a fitting room for me and more--literally the best shopping experience I've ever had.  

Overall, super successful day of shopping, I showed you everything I tried on, and today I'm sharing everything that came home with me.

I'm linking everything after the jump so if anything jumps out at you, head over and scoop them up before they are gone.  Everything is from the brand new, Fall 2016 Collection and prices go back up on August 7th.  

I hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this morning and it was quite possibly the best shopping experience of my life.  I made an appointment with the Style Sales Manager and she was a dream to work with.  I got there bright and early, she pulled all the items I had on my wish list, plus more, and set me up in a fitting room.

I did a couple laps around the store, collecting a few more pieces, and then it was time to try it all on. I would love to share with you a bit of a photo overload from the fitting room, but also how these pieces fit so you can shop them yourself!

I will share a full post about everything I purchased and if you're here early want to add me to Snapchat, you can see me trying all of these things on (I'm acoest1984).  Onto the fitting room recap!

It's here!  It's here!  Today is the day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up to the public.  I will be heading to there to scoop up all the goodies I've been eyeing since the early access sneak peek became available.   Here's everything you need to know to shop the sale:


The #Nsale is an annual sale where tons of new, Fall merchandise is super marked down.  It's the chance to grab new trends and pieces for the upcoming season, at discounted pricing.  Prices go back up on August 8th.  


Hundreds of items for women, men, kids, beauty and home.  While some items get restocked, once they sell out, most are gone until prices go back up.


I shared my clothing picks earlier this week (here are last year's picks), but for the home I'm loving this rose gold cocktail shaker, this marble/wood cutting board & I'm really drawn to this duvet set.

I will be sharing my shopping experience on Snapchat, so follow along if you'd like, I'm acoest1984.  I'll be back with a recap of everything I tried on, how it fit and more to help you shop.  I'm so excited, I hope you are too!

Happy Friday!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and early access started on Friday.  If you girls live in the US, you can sign up for the debit or credit card and shop the sale immediately.  If you're in Canada, like myself, or other parts of the world, the sale opens to the public this Friday, July 22.

Essentially, this sale is the biggest of the year where Nordstrom marks down all their new Fall gear for three weeks.  After that, they go back up to regular price until the snow flies, ie. the time to shop is now!  While I know you have sunshine, swimming and patio-season on your mind, the cool weather will be here before we know it and you'll be glad you scored some awesome stuff at such great prices.

That said, I'm sharing my favourite picks from the sale and will be sharing even more as the sale goes on.  I've actually asked my Sales Manager at my local Nordstrom to set a few things aside for my appointment on Friday so I don't miss out, like this suede moto jacket (which has already sold out twice online and been restocked), this bralette, and this drape front vest (love this splurge option).

Happy shopping!
