Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Early Access Picks

It's that time of the year. The most anticipated sale of the year officially starts today, July 13! Nope, it's not Black Friday in July. I'm talking about the first day of early access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I've covered the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year, and found major deals on fall/winter clothing. I know some of you might be thinking: "but summer just started, how are you thinking about fall and winter already?" Not to worry, you can still shop some pieces that are summer appropriate that can easily transition to the next season.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If you're not familiar with this sale, it's the one time during the year where Nordstrom offers huge discounts on select newly released or staples items. Instead of marking down the items at the end of the season, they do it in the beginning of the upcoming season. I've purchased most of my fall and winter wardrobe last year during the anniversary (and even did some advanced Christmas shopping). Aside from newly released items, they also bring back popular items from previous #NSale that may have sold out quickly.

Nordstrom card holders get a whole week to shop the sale a week before the public. However, if you're not a Nordstrom card holder, you'll still have time to get your shopping done for two weeks. Although, this is not a finance blog, I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is not financially ready for a/another credit card to apply just to get the early access to the sale. Please shop responsibly :).

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Early Access - July 13 to July 20
Public Sale - July 21 to August 6

*Prices go back up August 7

Chambray Off the Shoulder Top for Spring

When the sun is out, the shoulders come out. I'm currently having the a moment with using the bandana either in place of necklace or choker or layering it with a necklace, especially if I'm wearing an off the shoulder top. I know that Coachella is long gone and done, but I wouldn't mind wearing this when I'm out romping around town.

I like that this off the shoulder top from Morrisday the Label has an elastic band all around to keep the top up especially for me since I'm more on the smaller bust size (president of the itty bitty community). I don't find the elastic uncomfortable while I'm wearing it throughout the day. It also doesn't slide off my chest. It's just the right amount of snug to keep my chest covered.

Chambray Shirt and Leather Outfit

Chambray shirt styling for Spring
Chambray shirt (use code HAPPYSPRING for 30% off) / J.Crew denim jeans / BlankNYC moto jacket (currently on sale for 35% off!) / Rebecca Minkoff bag / Buckled ankle boots

I've been finding myself wearing this chambray shirt lately especially with paired with a denim bottom. I used to be a little intimidated with the whole denim on denim outfit, but I find myself gravitating to it now especially since Spring as officially begun. This chambray shirt has earned its spot as classic wardrobe staple in my closet as it's one of those pieces that can transition throughout the year (see another denim on denim outfit here).
