I know what you’re all thinking, two blog posts in one week? I know, I’m pretty darn proud of myself too. Although, there’s a good reason for blog post #2. Unless you’ve been living under a giant rock, I can assume you’ve heard of Nordstrom’s incredible anniversary sale, yes? Everyone’s been posting what they bought and I had a serious case of fomo. So I went ahead and ordered a pair of mules I had my eye on and patiently waited. The only problem? I live in Canada and the shipping isn’t so nice to us impatient online shoppers. BUT I got these shoes a few days ago and its safe to say I’m obsessed. I’ve been on the hunt for a taller black mule (cuz hello #shortgirlprobz) and these ones from BP. ticked all the boxes.
What’s cool about the Nordstrom anni sale is this: It’s not that their summer pieces are going on sale. It’s the brand spankin new fall items that are on sale, and then they go back up to regular price! The sale is on ’till August 6th (prices go up on the 7th), so I suggest you grab your laptop + a glass of wine and start picking out some new pieces. The sale is also happening in stores (Yorkdale & Eaton Centre), so if you want to try stuff on, you can do that too. Here are my top picks – the best office-y, fall-y items – honestly guys, I wish I could get them all.
I’m lucky that I work in a pretty casual office, so this outfit is something that I’d normally wear to work. Because I have full time job and spend a good chunk of my time in the office, I’ve been purchasing pieces that are both work and play friendly. I am not the impulse buyer I once was, especially working in retail for 3.5 years of my life – did I own half the store I worked at? Yes, yes I did. Good transitional staples that can take you from a marketing meeting to after work drinks to date night. Nordstrom has so many of these – it’s a sale you really don’t want to miss out on.
