Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks of 2018

It's the most wonderful time of year again! As a former Nordstrom employee I still remember the excitement around the anniversary sale! The exclusivity of cardholders getting the first looks and every employee discussing what they personally wanted for weeks. In the last 5 years I think the sale has gotten even more popular with the increase in influencers posting about it. Yesterday, July 12th, I woke up and immediately started searching for my picks. I usually used this sale as an opportunity to get new jackets (my obsession) and boots for the fall. Here is what I came up with...

Jackets

 

I bought the Zella bomber in rusty Orange and the KUT jacker in red along with the Avec Les Filles jacket which is now sold out. You can find similar ones in black online. 

Shoes

I bought the Rebecca Minkoff botts in black and the Jeffrey Campbell boots in tan. I am obsessed with both Marc Fisher boots in white but also the booties in GOLD. 

Dresses and Skirts

 

I wanted some fall tones in my picks, hence the orange. I got the Leith dress in the Red Grape color. 

Tops

 

Frosé is red, white, and blue?

Happy Holiday week!! I personally am taking Wednesday through the following Monday off and cannot wait! I am spending time at the beach with my fiancé and his family. I get super excited for holidays and love to find apparel to match. I still remember the day when my mom dressed us in Old Navy American Flag shirts and took photos of us. While I REALLY wanted to cool star spangled bathing suit that all the other influencers are wearing... it did not come in my size

After much Pinterest as to what I wanted to drink over this holiday weekend I decided it's time to make FROSÉ!! Here is how I plan on doing it:

  • 1 bottle of Rose
  • 3 cups ice, more as needed
  • 3 cups frozen strawberries
  • Lemon Juice
  • Low Calorie Sweetener (I am going to use monk fruit but you can use anything)

Then I am going to blend it all up in the blender, put it in a pan, and freeze it! When it is time I am going to scoop them into cups and add another splash of rosé on top with possibly a little splash of watermelon vodka if I am feeling fun. 

Here are some of my other 4th of July picks that I got off Amazon (a.k.a with PRIME you can probably still get it by tomorrow!
