They say that December is the most wonderful time of the year, but my happy time is during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

It may seem early, but July is when I plan my fall wardrobe. Its when all the new styles come out full of mustard yellows and olive greens. And the layers? Heavenly.

From basics to extras, I'm sharing my top pics of what I love from this year's sale, available for purchase July 20 - August 5. (Cardmembers have early access from July 12-19.)


Everyone needs a good pair of flattering jeans. These are a couple of cropped standouts that move from summer to fall when paired with booties.

J.Crew Billie Demi Boot Crop Jeans (Redwood Wash) - $82.90 (after sale, $125)

BLANKNYC The Madison Straight Leg Crop Jeans (Friend Zoned) - $58.90 (after sale, $88)


Fall calls for plush fabrics, richer colors, and midi length skirts. Below are a couple of my favorites, both from Halogen.

Halogen Tweed Midi Skirt (regular & petite) - $58.90 (after sale, $89)

Halogen Pleat Detail Midi Skirt (Green Painted Rose, regular & petite) - $45.90 (after sale, $69)


Something about blazers reminds me of college. They look "smart" without being pretentious.

Chelsea28 Double Breasted Corduroy Blazer (Rust Ginger) - $65.90 (after sale, $99)

J.Crew Dover Blazer (Navy) - $131.90 (after sale, $198)


I think shoes are my favorite since my size doesn't really change. Chunky heels and booties are my weakness for fall.

Louise et Cie Jayant Pump - $79.90 (after sale, $119.95)

Vince Camuto Kentvi Sandal - $99.90 (after sale, $149.95)


The richness of leather and suede draw me into fall. Here are my two favorite bags from the sale.

Treasure & Bond Remy Pebbled Leather Backpack (Burgundy Fig) - $132.90 (after sale, $199)

rag & bone Suede & Leather Circle Crossbody Bag - $259.90 (after sale, $395)


Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is when I've picked up all my makeup brushes and sets. Companies put together exclusive collections just for this sale.

M•A•C Basic Brush Kit - $52.50 ($172 value)

Trish McEvoy The Power of Makeup Planner Collection (Sunlit Glamour) - $225 ($585.50 value)
