Ok soooo I know I’ve been absent from the blog for quite some time, and I do apologize. I’ve been busy I swear (as you roll your eyes at me), but REALLY, I have. I’ll even tell you about it. I went down to part time at my digital marketing position and also started a new business (more on this later). This all happened in January and while I’ve loved all the exciting opportunities its brought, it’s also meant less free time and a very hectic schedule as I try to get a handle on everything. I will get better, pinky swear.
Moving on – unless you’ve been hiding under a particularly large rock, I’m sure you’ve heard of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. This sale is pretty sweet because it’s the new stuff (for fall / winter), that goes on sale in the summer and then goes back to regular price after a few weeks. We all know I can’t ignore a good sale of course, so I drove over to Sherway (I’ve never actually been to this Nordstrom before, but it was so pretty!) to shop last weekend, and found a piece I loved + ordered a few online.
This leather jacket isn’t part of the anniversary sale, but I couldn’t say no. Last one in stock and a size small? Meant to be if you ask me. I couldn’t find it online, it’s from the brand BLANKNYC, – it was on sale from $255, and I snagged it for $101.66!
Here are some of my other favourites from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, everything goes back to regular price on August 6th, so my suggestion is to run over to a store / get that credit card ready ASAP.
Because a good chunky knit is the epitome of fall, am I right?
dresses + skirts
I love pairing a dress/skirt with a staple jacket + some boots in the fall – this is probably my go to ensemble, if we’re being completely honest.
If you’re not ready to say bye to summer shopping just yet, have no fear. Last year, I found these B.P. chunky mules at the sale, and lucky for you, they have a very similar pair that just so happens to be on sale. This year, I became obsessed with these Steve Madden over the knee boots. To preface, my sister and I are slightly obsessed with OTK boots and go a tad crazy when trying to find the perfect ones – we’re both on the shorter, so its a blessing when the boots actually fit. These boots are perfect – as goldilocks says – they have a low, chunky heel & fit like a glove.
coats + jackets
So I know no one is thinking about crisp fall evenings or chilly walks to the office just yet, but hear me out. These coats + jackets are adorable and they go back up in price in a few days, making it the perfect time to stock up.
