Flowy trench, similar | Mother Insider crop denim, similar | Prada shoes | Gucci sunnies

If I told you this is the 28th Nordstrom Anniversary Sale since I first started working there, you might wonder how old I am 😂  Needless to say, after all these years, I kinda know what I’m doing (wink). Consider me your trusted source for how to navigate the sale and get the best of the fall season: highly edited, on trend, and super stylish — before it’s all gone! (Pro tips below.)

By the way, EVERYONE is asking me how they can shop my website and make sure I get the credit? To my loyal and wonderful clients and friends, I’m SO grateful to you for this!  Ok, here’s how: simply click on this Nordstrom link, and shop away!!

Yesterday my Nordstrom 6 friends and I revealed our favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks on Instagram. (view the IGTV video here). A lot of information was packed onto this video, but keep in mind there’s a lot to cover! I have much more to share in the coming days, so stay tuned.

P.S. Many of you texted asking about a few other non-sale items I was wearing, so here they are! This J.Crew cardigan is a summer fave, and these black Bottega-inspired mules go with everything. This Mansur Gavriel pouch bag is a new addition to my closet, and so are these Golden Goose sneakers and this fun scarf I wore as a bracelet. You will love all of these! I’ve been wearing this tank on repeat and can’t wait to start wearing this Rag & Bone blazer again. Lastly, the Givenchy handbag and Gucci sunglasses make every outfit extra cute!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is THE BEST time to purchase a coat. There are so many to choose from that it can be a little overwhelming, so here are my recommendations. This one by Kenneth Cole is SO GOOD, everyone should buy it! Below are the ones I featured in yesterday’s video.

Here are my best tips on shopping the Anniversary Sale:


Tip 1: Buy online! So much more efficient this way — avoid the crowds and get it fast. Plus, items may not be available in store.

Tip 2: Focus on the hot items that are going to sell out quickly! In my next post I’ll reveal the most popular brands and the items that sell out the fastest.

Tip 3: Consider paying $12 extra for two-day shipping. This bumps your order up in the queue and increases your chances of getting what you want!

Tip 4: Stock up on basics! Get your denim, leather jackets, shoes and booties, and makeup now.

Tip 5: Schedule a Personal Double Points Day.  Earn 2x the points towards to Nordstrom notes – you’ll be glad you did!
