Happy Thursday, friends! I’m up and at ’em this morning to shop and scope out the best of the best from Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. What’s different about this sale is it’s actually all items for fall (as opposed to end-of-season pieces from spring) that are discounted today through August 6, at which point they’ll return to full price. I know it’s hard to start thinking riding boots and trench coats in the middle of summer, but your fall self will thank you. If you want to get a head start on your fall wardrobe, this is your shot!

A few of the things I just ordered from the Nordstrom anniversary sale: my favorite bra, my favorite underwear, yoga pants, this pair of skinny jeans (which I own in multiple washes!), and my eyelash superhero, Neulash. I also couldn’t resist this affordable scalloped sweater and this chic bell sleeve sweater. A few pieces I highly recommend if you don’t already own them: a Barbour jacket, Tory Burch riding boots, Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots, and a Clarisonic face brush. I’m dividing my favorite finds by category below to save you from browsing thousands of products like I just did. 😘

I should mention that today is the start of early access so you’ll need a Nordstrom credit or debit card to place an order today. I have the debit card but if you don’t want to sign up for a card, the sale will open to the public on July 21 and you’ll have until August 6 to shop before prices go back up. Happy shopping!

  1. Mackenzie,

    Thank you so much for sharing!! One question – which style of Tory Burch boots do you have? I’ve tried them on in store year after year but in my experience they’re too tall!! I know that you and I are the same height, and I’ve wanted a pair for so long.


    1. Hi Christina! I have a suede pair that you can see here:



      They do cut into my knee a little bit but here’s a little trick for you: these heel inserts (available in a bunch of different heights but you shouldn’t need much!) make you a little taller and slide easily into the back of the boot so your knee hits above the top of the boot. I hope that helps! 🙂

  2. I love the items you picked up (that ruffled bottom jacket is a-mazing!) I myself have no problem shopping for fall during the summer because fall is my fave time of year! Not that I am wishing away summer but I can’t wait for riding boots and warm sweaters. xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life
