The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Dressing Room Diaries

nordstrom

July 13, 2018

Hands down, y’all stepped up and told me that last year’s installment of Dressing Room Diaries was your very favorite post from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. SO.. of course we had to go bigger and better this year, right!?!?! I headed into our Nashville store yesterday morning bright and early and let’s just say it was closer to dinner time by the time I called it a day–no really, I’m being serious.

I know it can get overwhelming shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale… it’s like we throw everything into the cart and see what sticks, which is why I outlined my First Look Favorites yesterday! So today I am showing all the details of all my in-store finds… tons of layering essentials [which seems to be your favorite items to shop] as well as those special sale items that you just “have to have”…. so sit back and relax, grab a big cup of joe and let’s get down to business because it’s FRIDAY! And be sure to read the sizing details and other details I’ve included below for easy shopping reference.

    Cutest styles ever! Totally bought these jeans & earrings because of all the different ways you rock them!

  2. Susan Schnitzler says:

    I love everything you picked especially the green laced up cami. I’m adding to my cart right now. Quick question: what bra would you wear? I’m busty so I cannot go withou. Would you use the paste on kind? I’ve never tried them. Any thoughts?! Thanks!!!

  3. Susan Schnitzler says:

    I love your style soooo much! I have a question about what bra you would wear with that adorable green lace up cami. I’m busty and could never go without…so, would you find a low dipping strapless or use the stick on kind? (I’ve never tried them! ) Thanks for any advice.
