Trending: 7.24.16-- Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Picks!

My trending report today is dedicated to the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale! OMG! Only the best sale of the year! This is when I stock up on items I have been lusting after all year, but I am too broke to afford them... until now.  In the past, I have gotten my Frye boots, my Nike Free tennies, both my silver and gold Michael Kors watches, and Tory Burch flats. This is the time to shop if you've been admiring an item for months, but it is a bit out of price range. The prices are so reasonable at this time. But do shop quickly; pieces sell out extra fast! The beauty of Nordies is that shipping is free both ways. Unfortunately, I don't have a super close Nordstroms near Geneva, but I can order online without any regrets. Bonus: shipping is ridiculously fast! Here are my top ten picks for the sale.

[1.0] These Toms Majorca Peep Toe Booties-- $78 on sale! Loving the gray color.
You guys know how much I love my perforated Toms booties; I wear them CONSTANTLY!  To teach in all day or on the weekends-- they never get uncomfortable. I can't tell you how many people are shocked to learn that my peep toe booties are Toms! They are true to size and extra comfortable. I always say that my biggest regret about them is not buying the black that my girl Mandy has, too!

[2.0] Kendra Scott Earrings-- $35.90- $42.90 on sale.
These are simply artwork. This style of earring is timeless, and they make a statement with any outfit. Kendra Scott earrings have been on my wish list for months. Now is the time! The Elle size featured is ideal because it's not the biggest size (which, for me, is a bit too heavy for my lobes!), but it is still a statement earring, which I adore.

[3.0] This Northface Winter Parka-- $169.90 on sale.
I bought this last year on sale, and I can't explain to you how warm it is! Mandy bought it first, and I HAD to have it! She described it as "lightweight, but soooo warm!" I have never had a better winter coat. I was totally protected from those -20 degree wind chills. I know it's hard to think about winter when it's 90+ degrees out, but I am telling you: this sale won't last! I bought a size medium because it runs a little smaller than the typical Northface parkas. It is more form fitting, which I prefer for winter coats because you can get lost under all those layers. I have a bright pink color. The hood is so awesome, too. The coverage is amazing for negative temps and snow!

[4.0] These Alo Capris-- $55.90 on sale.
I love Lululemon and their leggings, but I have to say, I've never had leggings that compliment my body more than the Alo leggings. I have the Goddess style, but these are equally as fabulous. They are true to size, and they seriously lift your ledge! You'll be getting so many compliments on these at your Pure Barre classes ;-) The mesh detailing is huge right now, and it is extremely flattering! I love the blush and navy together on these. The material is durable and thick, too.

[5.0] These Sperry Saltwater Duck Boots-- $79.90 on sale.
Duck Boots are such a staple for the fall and winter months (and spring if you live in Chicago, haha). Bean Boots from L.L. Bean, the original pair, are always back-ordered until March, and then you have missed the prime season for needing them. These Saltwater Duck Boots are ideal for days when you don't want to put on your bulkiest of Sorels or tall hunters. Plus, they're adorbs!

[6.0] These KUT from the Kloth Jeans-- $59.90 on sale.
These jeans are a perfect fit and length. I am loving the slight faded wash on them! These will be adorable with your ballet flats or with a pair of booties (see 1.0). I tend to shy away from anything with rips in it (simply because I can't wear that to school on dress-down/school spirit Fridays), so I love that these aren't destroyed at all.

[7.0] This dainty ruffle shirt for work-- $49.90 on sale.
Whenever I buy shirts these days, I really make sure I can wear them to teach in. It must mean I'm getting old. Haha! I always laugh with my friends and say that all my "party tops" are collared. Times have changed! But, this adds a fun ruffle detail to your typical work wear. I can see this under a blazer in the colder months or paired with a high-waisted skirt in the fall.

[8.0] This sleeveless ruffle shirt for work-- $37.90 on sale.
Again, practical! But lovely. This will be great for when it's still hot, but then I can throw a blazer or cardi over it for the winter months. I love the high neck, too! The wine color has fall written all over it.

[9.0] This gorgeous Tory Burch dress-- $176.90 on sale.
I've never owned a TB dress, but this would be such a beautiful one to start my collection. The detail of the full zippered front is so unique, and the colors are striking! I love multi-colored dresses, and this could be dressed up for a wedding with black pumps, or worn in the fall for a night out with black tights and tall black boots.

[10.0] These lace up ballet flats-- $59.90 on sale.
I feel like the Nordstrom's sale is another good time to try a trend that you've been admiring for a while, but you haven't wanted to spend a huge amount of money on it. Case in point: these darling lace up ballet flats. They're everywhere! You can style them to be dressy or super casual. But I wasn't quite ready to drop $100 on them, so this opportunity is fantastic. In black, they'd be on heavy rotation for work.

What are your Nordstrom's anniversary sale picks? Shop quickly because the sale ends August 8. Stay tuned for a men's version of sale picks thanks to my hubs!
