Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2013

Screen-Shot-2013-07-19-at-7.58.15-AM-500x419

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!!!

For those of your that don’t know, the sale started yesterday (unless you are a cardholder and were eligible for pre-select which I believe started on the 10th). This is their best sale because their new FALL items come out on sale for just two weeks and then go back up to their full price after the sale is over (Aug 4). So you have to grab these items while you can before they are full price again! I went and did my pre-select a week ago….photo

Whoopsie…but things were so cute and such a good deal! Personally I like to get my boots and handbags early because they are such a good deal and they are new styles (not leftovers!). I also like to try to get their jeans and workout gear because its always nice to get those items on sale. Then the rest of the items I buy are just perks! Here are my favorites, but make sure you stop by because it’s a good one!

Polka Dot Maxi and Pave

I got this dress a few years ago actually on sale at Anthro (same with the shoes) and I am still in love with it. I’ve worn it to a few weddings and for other random occasions. Each time I try to dress it up with different shoes and jewelry for a new effect. This outfit was for a co-workers wedding. Just simple and sweet.

Southwestern Trend: Summer 2013

WhoWhatWear did a big post on The Southwestern Trend for Summer 2013 and it has been one of my favorite trends as well, so I wanted to piggyback a little bit and do my own take on it! I love this style. I recently took a few pictures up at my cabin in this style, so you will see “my southwestern” style soon, but I love the way celebrities have been wearing it and all of the stores have been branding with it, so here you go! One of my favorite trends for this summer!

So here are a few great clothing items to add to your closet if you are loving this style as much as I am. But don’t forget you can totally carry this into fall as well! I’m definitely planning on doing it! Throw a sweater over one of the maxi dresses, or add a scarf to the jeans and tee and you’ve turned a summer outfit into a fall outfit in a few seconds. Plus spring booties can be flipped over to fall just like that as well. Then you’re getting more use out of them!

Swingin’ Boots

My cousins and I basically grew up swinging on this tree swing up at our cabin in the summers. (Well, either that or down at the lake.) It’s only about a 30 second little hike up the hill from our cabin. I love all the aspen trees surrounding it. It’s one of my favorite places. I hope I get to push my kids on this swing one day. It just seems like its been around forever and I hope it always is.
