Weekend Steals & Deals // Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you’re looking to do some shopping this weekend, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is open to the public from now until August 3 and features their best deals on all their Fall clothing, shoes, handbags, accessories, and more.  I typically order online from Nordstrom because their site is so easy to shop and shipping and returns are free, but I went to the store yesterday because I wanted to try on their fall boots!  Having not been inside the store in awhile, I almost forgot how helpful and professional their salespeople are.  I remember that’s one of the things I like best about shopping there.  Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale has great deals, but the prices go up on August 4.  I found two super cute pair of boots, and brought one home, but the other pair I had to order because they were out of my size in the color I wanted.

The boots that made it home with me are the Vince Camuto Vala Bootie (a Nordstrom exclusive).  They look so good on because of the deeper cut on the side.  And they are a high heel, but not too high.  I’m sure these will get a lot of wear with jeans and skirts alike this Fall. 
Vince CAmuto Vala Bootie $89.90, $138.95
The pair I had to order are the Michael Kors Blake Mid-Calf Boot.  These will be my running-around-in flat boot this Fall.  They are the perfect mid-calf length for me!  I’m always a fan of the gorgeous brown color that Michael Kors uses for his shoes and bags. 

I saw some other great boots too, especially the Enzo Angiolini Eero leather boot in a black and tan combo.  So nice to have both colors in one boot.
I found a lot of other great deals too online, but I need to edit down my shopping cart! Pictured below are the things I’m leaning toward purchasing.


Hinge Mixed Pattern Knit Sweater $44.90, $68 (also comes in a pretty soft blue)

scarves & accessories

Nordstrom Animalia Ripple Wool Scarf $38.90, $59 What a cool mix of prints.  This will add some interest to my mostly neutral wardrobe. 

Kendra Scott Elle Drop Earrings $33.90, $52 I already wear my Kendra Scott Rayne Stone Tassel Pendant Necklace all the time, so I think I’d get a lot of wear out of these earrings.

kid’s shoes

For my son, I picked up the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Street OX in grey with yellow laces. They were originally $39.95, but I got them for $34.95.  He’s 4 and wears a size 8 in these. They are so cute on him.  I know you aren’t all boy moms, so I included some adorable girl’s shoes for ya too! 😉

It’s so hard to get a good photograph of a toddler; as soon as I turn the camera on mine, he starts doing this!
Have a great weekend!

    Thanks – Sheila
