Honestly, I was pretty underwhelmed with this year’s anniversary sale. Over the last year Nordstrom’s semi-annual sales (held twice a year) have better discounts on a larger number of items.

On top of everything else, the brands usually on sale were not (read: Under Armour) so I was more than little bummed. I have found that I generally use the Anniversary sale to stock on my favorite Caslon and Halogen brands but then again, they are always on sale.


nordstrom anniversary jully 15I am always on the lookout for basic long sleeve shirts for school. I can never wear nice clothes because they inevitably get ruined! Basics are the best and Caslon makes some nice hardy ones at an affordable price!

I love scarves. I wear them all year round. When I saw this Echo Brushstrokes scarf I immediately fell in love! The only problem is I cannot decide between the Electric Blue or Multi colors!

I love Halogen’s Slub Knit tops. They are form fitting but slouchy and comfortable. And, above all, they last for ages!

I am so glad to see this Michael Kors rain jacket is still on sale. I love the dark blue. The perfect muted pop of color for dreary days! Unfortunately, I really like the red as well!

And, no shopping trip would be complete without a sweatshirt! This turquoise space dye sweater from Caslon is my perfect style and color!

I will never forget the Ted Baker Dauschund Bauble wallet. I waited too long and it slipped through my fingers. I hold out for another great design from Ted Baker but if you are looking for basic design, good quality sturdy wallets, these are fantastic finds!

The Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Crossbody is always on sale at this time of year. I always have my eyes on them but can never decide on the color! I am hoping the neon yellow comes back on sale!

Are you looking to splurge a bit? These adorable star earrings and matching necklace from Sugar Bean are so pretty (and they come in multiple colors as well)!

And, now, for the gut-wrenching splurge: La Mer. I don’t think it’s a secret how much I love the line. My skin absolutely loves the face cream and the eye concentrate is my holy grail eye product!! With two full size products, this kit is well worth the money!


Do any of these items pique your interest? Even though I feel lukewarm towards this year’s overall sales…I have to say some of the beauty gift with purchases are alright! The ones I am especially interested in:



_8074193Estee Lauder always has great gift with purchases and this one is no exception. There are three other “kits” I can choose from. This will be the perfect time to stock up on my go-to serum: Advanced Night Repair!



_6602124And, if I’m going to splurge on that great La Mer set from above I might as well add a little something more in the form of the awesome Lip Balm and get a few travel-friendly samples!

There a lot more gift with purchases, check them out here!


On top of the sales, Ebates is offering 3.0% on Nordstrom online purchases. I recently signed up and am thrilled with the cash backs I’ve received.
