What to Buy at The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

There’s no way that you’ve missed the news that the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here. If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can shop the sale early! I normally advise against store cards but this is the one card I have. Why? It links to your debit card so there’s no room for irresponsible spending, and the rewards are that good.

I’ve had a really rough week (posted about it in my instagram stories) and received so much support from you guys. As a thank you, I want to personally give one of you $100 to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Here’s how to enter

  1. Make sure you’re following me on instagram.
  2. Like this post and tag a friend in the comments section for one entry. Leave a second comment tagging another friend for a second entry.
  3. Leave your instagram handle in the comments section of this post to for a third entry.

You have until tomorrow evening to enter! I’ll announce the winner in my instagram stories on Sunday and will send your gift card over that day. And finally, here are my favorite items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

    A wedding in Paris!! Your engagement party photos remind me of a modern day Audrey Hepburn ❤️. All you need is LOVE and there is no place better than Paris for that with your future husband! You should do a wedding picture like on the movie Funny Face in front of the Eiffel Tower ❤️❤️. Instagram @palmer104

    You've been an inspiration to me as an individual on so many levels over the last few years. Obviously we can't know everything about a person just from social media but you definitely present yourself as a strong, caring woman and to know that you don't always have a support system that made you that way, makes you even stronger. Thanks for sharing the not so beautiful parts of life and being so real in everything you share. Hoping for the best for you and Conor, and of course both of the cutest pooches around! Also, this sale is #goals. My handle is @justtt_beee and my little company's handle is @sweetlovepaperie. tagging @boxberryerin because girl, we need a shopping trip asap.

    Family is hard. You love them but it is not always easy. I find unconditional love is not guaranteed with them but can be found in others -- it helps fill that void. Keep your joy and don't let the others bring you down. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the contest. Insta: @ashleybrockette

    I did a lot of damage at the sale yesterday and already ordered more. Word on the street is that Nordstrom is awarding 10 points per dollar on purchases yesterday and today because of all the web issues. Also, I'm leluhrs on insta.

    I was so sorry to read your wedding update on Instagram. I've been following your blog for years (*aesthetic goals*) and have always appreciated your take on sharing a balance of personal life and business. This one especially hit home. I'm recently married and my husband and I followed a similar route - we had a very small wedding. We even considered going abroad for a time! It was really tough with family members - we both come from (incredibly) large families where every aunt, uncle, cousin and second cousin is invited to every event, so our decision was not initially well received or widely supported. In the end, though tensions ran higher than they should have, it was the right decision and those who care about us most, and know us best, agreed it was the evening of our dreams. Hopefully the love you'll feel on the big day will easily push any hurt to the side. Sending positive vibes your way!
