Nordstrom 2018 Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom Sale Update

AH! It was like Christmas morning when my massive box finally arrived – beyond excited to rip it open and look at all my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goodies!!! Admittedly I went a little crazy, knowing that I was going to return a few things. I love a good try-on sesh at home, pairing with the items I already own. But nothing beats a mother-daughter shopping trip to Oakbrook with my kids, playing hide and seek between the clothing racks like my sister and I used to do. Oh the memories!

Below is a list of what I ordered online and picked up in store at Oakbrook Center and some ideas on what you can pair it with.  I tend to buy more classic looking, sometimes pricey pieces that will last seasons and mix and match with affordable/fast fashion items. 

And check out my IG Stories Highlights #ootd for video try-ons!
