{nordstrom anniversary sale // try-on}

SHOP: Tie Neck Peasant Top Was $49 // NOW $28| Levi’s 501 Skinny Jeans | Maya Mule Was $79 // NOW $44

It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🎶 Things got WILD on Monday. We shopped in-store at Nordstrom Westfield Galleria  💃🏼Even did a fun try-on with my teenager ❤️

Walking you through our #nsale faves today.

Bay trying on her nsale jeans. I love that she picked out something that was totally different for her. And how cute is her collage she did in her room? Oh and Chick-Fill-A, Always! Ha!

Fist off, I’ve never been able to shop the sale earlier than insider status. So this was a really cool day. Let me just start there. And Bay + Cory came along too. I’ve totally turned them into Nordy snobs…HA!

Tomorrow, if you are a cardholder – you can shop the sale. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of shit that’s sold out. They claim, re-stocks are coming. So if you see something you love…..STALK it! My advice, buy it. If you’re not sure what size, buy two. Nordstroms has THE best customer service. Free shipping + Free returns. So you can send it right back. Once you place an order, beware – it can be cancelled. It’s so heartbreaking. It’s happened to me each Anniversary Sale. Until it’s shipping, you really don’t know.

Those are my little tidbits. Now here is our fun dressing room try-on……
