I braved the crowds yesterday - and seriously have never seen anything like it in CO! I went to opening day of the Anniversary Sale last year in Chicago, but figured that was just how the shopping experience was there most of the time. When it comes to shopping in CO people usually don't get too crazy over department store sales, especially on a Thursday morning in the middle of summer. I think we are such an active state and people prefer to get in and get what they need and get out, or shop online. But yesterday was insane! No parking anywhere (11:00 am) at our biggest mall with miles of parking, long lines at each dressing room, and long lines waiting for each register... an absolute mad house, but I loved it! Thankfully, I have made friends with the sweetest girl who is doing a styling internship at Nordstrom and she pulled a few things she thought I would like before I got there because I would definitely have missed something!
I had planned on walking you through my purchases on my instagram stories, but I felt awful taking my time and chattering away on my phone while the line was out the door for a room, so will go through my picks here!
I thought this dress would be perfect for our trip to Europe next month! It is super comfy and plan on wearing it with sandals and wedges!
Last year a bought a similar blush top at the Anniversary Sale and wore the heck out of it. Blush is my favorite color so probably have a few too many of them, but they always get worn and this one is under $50 and gorgeous fabric so knew I wanted to try it asap!! I am wearing a small, but ordered the XS for size reference.
Obviously needed a blush pump to match - and these are so comfy $79.90!!
I don't work in a formal office setting anymore, but if I did, this dress would have been my first purchase! The fit is amazing. I love when a shift is just the right amount of tailored and the ruffle trim is so pretty. Sitting here trying to find a reason I need to get this dress now... hmmm.
I am a sucker for a cute graphic tee and this "Pardon My French" tee $25.90 was too cute to pass up! I have the old version of this blazer (5 years going strong!), it is such a great staple/investment piece and it and right now it is almost 50% off. These jeans may have been my favorite purchase! Because I am on the shorter side (5'3) it is hard for me to find jeans that hit exactly where I want and I love the frayed edge on these!
The piece I get the most questions about is a good leather jacket! So the sale is a great time to splurge on a great leather jacket or find an adorable faux! I did not love the fit on this one, a little long and big in the shoulders. I wanted to try this one $64.90, but could not find it in store so will be ordering online! I like a more cropped/fitted look. Also like this one, and this one.
I was so excited to try this dress $65.90 on because I saw it online and finally found it in the store. It was a little long on me, but is a great now and later dress! Buy now, wear with wedges and wear later with boots! I am wearing a small here.
I love the fit of this top $69.90. Perfectly cropped and the bell sleeve isn't too outrageous like some bell sleeves can be and the floral print is just so pretty.
This top $58.90 was my surprise purchase! I walked by it a few times not thinking it was for me and decided to give it a shot... Honestly it reminded me of Cher in Clueless, but once I put it on I loved it! It also comes in navy with stripes (but sold out in the store I was at), and maroon and white. I am wearing an xs for size.
Let me know if there is anything else you would like me to cover specifically! I will continue to update the Anniversary Sale Shop above! Have a great weekend!
