I know the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the only thing bloggers are talking about, but we wait all year for this sale so you can’t really blame us for over-posting about it. I am a huge Nordstrom fan and I count down the days until the sale starts because the deals are just too amazing to pass up. I highly encourage shopping the sale online because it is highly unlikely that the items shown online will be available in stores. I went to a Nordstrom in Scottsdale last weekend and it was an absolute mad house. People were running around like they were giving away one hundred dollar bills. But seriously, the items I wanted to purchase were out of stock and it was too crowded to even browse what was left.
For today’s post, I thought I would do a round up of my favorite items for people who are just accessing the sale today. I’ve purchased some of these items and haven’t returned anything because I absolutely love everything I bought (sorry bank account). Everything I’m sharing is on sale and can be accessed by everyone since it is now open to the public! To shop an item, simply click on the desired image where you will then be redirected to the Nordstrom page to shop the item(s).

Today starts the first day of the best time of the year for shoppers aka the annual Nordstrom sale! If you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you may begin shopping TODAY, July 13th and the sale will open for the public on July 21st. I have been looking forward to this sale for the past couple of months and look forward to the sale every year. I score some of my favorite Nordstrom items during the annual sale and score major deals during it. I want to share some tips and things to know before the sale starts in a couple of days.
- Make a list of what you want before the sale starts: Like anything in life, making a list of what you want and need makes shopping so much easier and saves so much time. I like having a list so I’m not wandering around the site wasting time. I also like having a list because it helps me remember what I actually want to purchase instead of letting my excitement take over and forget everything I meant to purchase.
- The sale is primarily fall clothing and will have cardigans, sweaters, boots, jeans, booties, and everything fall related! This is the best time to buy those Tory Burch boots you’ve always wanted since they will be way cheaper. I bought mine last year during the sale and it was one of my best purchases.
- Shop online! Avoid the crowds and shop everything online because it is the easiest way to navigate the sale. Not only will the stores be beyond crowded, shopping online won’t make you feel as overwhelmed and pressured. I also love shopping everything from Nordstrom online because Nordstrom offers FREE shipping and FREE returns! Also, if you’re like me and the closest Nordstrom is roughly 100 miles away then online shopping will probably work best for you too.
I will be adding all of my sale favorites to the Nordstrom Sale tab on my blog so be sure to check that tab daily since I will be updating daily. I have already added Norstrom sale items to this tab so go check it out. I will also be doing try ons during the sale so stay tuned for those.

If you’re like me and have been looking for a quick and easy solution for whiter teeth, you’re in luck! Smile Brilliant has made the made a quick, easy, and affordable option for whiter teeth. I received my kit and was amazed by the quality and quantity of everything inside of the kit. One of the many things I love about Smile Brilliant is when you first receive your kit, you create dental impressions and send them back to their professional lab service for custom made whitening trays. These trays are specifically designed for your mouth and teeth, which makes whitening so much easier and more precise! Smile Brilliant also has different plans specifically for designed for you. Whether you have very stained teeth, are sensitive to whitener, drink a lot of coffee and wine, there is a plan for you!
Here are my before and after results:
Every kit comes with the following:
Although I do not have very sensitive gums, the desensitizing gel is my all time favorite part about Smile Brilliant (besides the white smile, of course). I have used many other professional whiteners that have made my gums hurt, make them sensitive for days, and burn. The desensitizing gel allows you to whiten your teeth without the uncomfortable burning feeling, which has made whitening my teeth a much more enjoyable experience. With plans starting at $129, what’s not to love about this professional teeth whitening system?! I absolutely loved using Smile Brilliant and cannot wait to keep using this product in the future to keep my bright, white smile. I am also so excited to be doing a giveaway with Smile Brilliant!

It’s FINALLY the weekend and I am so excited to head to Lake Powell for the Fourth of July! I had a crazy busy work week and after today, I will be out of reach for the next five days, which I am so excited about. I love the Fourth of July, especially since summer is my favorite season. I love watching the fireworks, wearing red, white, & blue, and the smell of BBQs. I also love how everyone comes together to celebrate our great country, laughing and enjoying time together, and enjoying the hot summer night. My boyfriend’s birthday is also this weekend and I am so excited to celebrate (I think I’m more excited than he is). I seriously LOVE celebrating birthdays and holidays so I always look forward to it.
Today I am sharing my favorite romper from Dainty Hooligan. This romper makes the perfect Fourth of July outfit, especially since it’s open backed and so light. I love the blue and white ombre, which is perfect for the upcoming holiday. I paired this romper with my favorite Steve Madden wedges and floppy hat.

Have a safe and fun Fourth of July, everyone!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I spent the weekend in LA with my boyfriend and his family. I had a much needed relaxing getaway and got to enjoy time by the pool, brunch with friends, and shopping. I got two tops at Nordstrom and both were on sale, you can shop both tops under the ‘shop instastories’ tab. I also got Coach loafers for work and they were a killer deal, you can also shop the loafers under the ‘shop instastories’ tab.
Today I am sharing this gorgeous dress that I wore over the weekend. It’s from The Mint Julep Boutique and it’s under $50! This dress is perfect for a summer date night and can be styled so many different ways. I love how flowy the dress is, making it so breathable and airy for hot summer nights. I also love the high/low detail and how it shoes more leg in the front of the dress and provides full coverage on the back of the leg. I am also such a huge fan of all floral prints this summer and I love the print on this dress. I paired this dress with my favorite Steve Madden wedges and Kendra Scott earrings. I’ve also linked my other outfit accessories at the end of this post. Simply click on an image where you will then be redirected to a page to shop the item(s).
