If you MUST get one thing from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, get this…

While I’m starting to take a liking to NARS, for it’s fun colors, I’ve always been a loyal Bobbi Brown user.  I love how natural it makes you look, it stays on all day, and the make-up never seems to look caked on.  This entire set above, will have you looking tan all year long (without the harmful UV rays).  And the price for all you get is hard to beat (Retail $153, Sale $85).

I think I could wear these all fall.
(Also available in black, these boots are currently $200 off!)
If the Tory Burch ones aren’t calling to you, maybe these are.
This style in the Brita will also be great to dress up any outfit in the fall.  Also, currently on sale.
(Anniversary Sale $196.90, After Sale $295)
If you’ve had your eye on a Michael Kors watch, now’s your chance to snag one, during the anniversary sale.  I purchased my MK watch I wear all the time during their sale, two years ago, and am still so glad I got such a great deal on such a timeless piece.  Many are marked down over $100.
Love how neutral this top is.  I’m thinking with mint shorts this summer, and then jeans/burgundy with a pop of color (turquoise) on your feet this fall.
I’ve always been a devoted fan of her sunglasses.
During the sale, she has many styles available, all less than $100.
Cute Kate Spade earrings for less than $25? Yes, please.
I’ve always been a big fan of NL’s cover-ups.  I have one that’s two years old, and still receive compliments on it.
Love this cover-up, as well.
La Mer users, it’s very rare that LM is included in the Anniversary Sale, but this year it is.
In addition, if you spend over $350 in La Mer products, you receive even more La Mer goodies.
P.S. All Nordstrom card holders earn DOUBLE POINTS during the sale, now through July 18th.
Hope y’all are having a great day!
