A Casual Summer Dress + 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tips

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share a cute and casual sundress that I am loving lately. This is my latest look by Cuddy Studios. I wore this to a casual dinner this weekend and it is so comfortable. It is also flowy, so that’s perfect when you’re eating pasta like I did 😉 The best part of this dress is that it has pockets. It’s so easy and effortless. The vibrant pattern doesn’t require many accessories, so I kept it simple and added some flats and some casual statement earrings.

Also, you may have heard the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 starts early access this Thursday, going from 7/13-7/20. To get early access you need to sign up for a Nordstrom credit card. This is my biggest tip for the sale. The best stuff goes fast! They do restock, so stay tuned because I will announce restocked items as I see them.

Public access goes from 7/21-8-21. Make sure to keep those days in mind. I will be heading down to Dallas to shop the sale and look forward to sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks, so watch out for those on Instagram and future blog posts! Growing up, I used this sale as my start to back to school shopping. I am excited to stock up for fall.

    Oooh! I can’t wait to see what you get! I’ll have to participate via their website this year. (But shopping sales is so much more fun in person!) And I love your dress! There’s nothing better than a dress with pockets. 🙂

      Thank you so much, Lindsey! I am hoping to stock up on fall basics. Yes, sale shopping is the best.

      I agree, pockets are the best.
