Leopard Tee & Dad Jeans – Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 15, 2019

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a fun and wild ride … for bloggers for sure … and I think for any serious shoppers!  The drama of the busy website, the orders still “getting ready” for days at a time, the things you thought you bought but then turn up “cancelled” on your account because they’re sold out. It is weird that I enjoy the drama a bit?  I always liked that about designer collaborations as well. I guess this recovering drama queen still enjoys a little excitement in her life, as long as it’s super small and totally manageable!

About the Sale

What makes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale different from any other sale?  Instead of items going on sale at the end of the season, the items on sale are brand new arrivals!  It’s the best time to stock up on basics, as well as try out some trends.
