Rounding up 15 items that I own and love, and 15 items that I'm shopping, from the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Shopping the #NSale
It’s that time of year when Nordstrom distracts us from summer for a bit and introduces the ‘f-word’ for the first time in the year (ehem fall). The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale gets so much hype that it’s turned into the unofficial kickoff for the start of fall and back-to-school shopping. I have never gone crazy with it personally (here’s a look at my coverage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year), and since my blog is a direct reflection of my personal life, I won’t get wild with it on here either. Instead, if you’re shopping it at all, my suggestion would be to pick up key staple items that you know you will get a ton of wear or use out of, and maybe try out a new trend that you’ve been eyeing, but don’t want to pay full price for. Nordstrom’s return policy is awesome as well, so you can always scoop something up online, try it on at home, and easily exchange or return it if you need. Here’s a look at the sale dates– you can see what level you’re in via your Nordstrom account!
So let’s get to it! I’ve divided up my coverage into the items I own and love, and what I’m shopping this time around. I hope they help streamline and simplify the shopping process for you– believe me when I say I’ve poured over every page of the sale! xx

Two // A holy grail face product of mine– this lactic acid VISIBLY plumps my fine lines and evens out my skin tones.
Three // My short Hunter boots are much easier than my tall ones for my legs to walk around in, & they’re also more manageable to pack too. I wear my normal size in them.
