2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Picks + The Perfect Special Occassion Dress On Sale

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetToday is officially the first day of the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s early access for Nordstrom card holders (It’s not too late to sign up). When I think of this sale, I think of back to school and fall. Growing up in Dallas, this was where I did a lot of my back to school shopping. The prices are great and, although I won’t be wearing a lot of these items yet because it’s like 100 degrees in Oklahoma, it’s a good time to start shopping for those fall staples. Fall/winter clothes are some of the most expensive, so I take advantage of this sale and look at jeans, boots, shoes, fall dresses, purses, etc.


Dress:SOLD OUT-Nordstrom Shoes: Here Earrings: Here Bag: My Demure  


I am really excited to see that one of my favorite special occasion dresses is on sale! It’s this gorgeous lace fit and flare. I have definitely gotten my money’s worth on this dress because it can be dressed up for a wedding or down for a date. It’s probably my most worn special occasions dress. I am wearing a size small for sizing reference. This dress is perfect for summer, fall, spring or winter because the colors are so versatile. I love every color in this dress!
