Hi friends! Just going to jump right into today's post since it's longer. I didn't really cover the Nordstrom Anniversary sale last year because I only bought 2 things! I honestly haven't been as impressed with the selection the last couple of years and I also feel like they're making it less and less accessible. This year I also only have 2 or 3 things on my wish list. I think me wanting to buy less during this sale is also a reflection of how I have approached shopping and style the last year or so.

Last year I started to take more of a capsule approach to my wardrobe in an effort to declutter and also spend less/only invest in classic pieces I can wear multiple ways. I still have generally stuck to that mindset, although, I will admit that I went a little crazy with shopping this summer just because I've been so excited to have places & events to wear new clothes! My general rule of thumb with buying anything though is "Can this be styled at least 5 different ways?" and is it a "closet gap?" 

While I'm not overly impressed with the selection, I will say that this sale is a great time to invest in a few good wardrobe staples. I wanted to take this approach with sharing some picks from the Nordstrom sale that I look at as closet staples and "capsule pieces" especially for fall and winter, though many of these items would also transition well into spring!

Also, just as an honorable mention, we are going to Iceland in September so these boots and this coat are also on my list mainly for that trip! Just wanted to share if you have any fall excursions planned.

What do you think of the sale this year? Are you shopping?


  1. Yes, I am definitely shopping! Those hoops are on my list. I adore that cute backpack and all of your picks!

  2. I love those jeans! To be honest, I've never quite understood why everyone loves the Nordstrom sales so much - but I'm based in Aus, so it's probably just because we don't have it here xx

  3. I haven't been impressed with the NSale the past few years either. It's frustrating how they have it set up now. Such a good idea to approach the sale from a capsule wardrobe perspective. Love all of these pieces!

  4. Your picks are super cute! And I'm with you- the sale has been less and less impressive year after year, and the pressure to buy (and also for bloggers to push the sale by affiliates) is just too much. Your casual approach is perfect!

  5. While these are only a couple of options, they’re the best way to do affiliate marketing. With that, I’ll bring up some key questions that you’ll need to have answered while you’re figuring out how to become an affiliate marketer. This is an essential checklist that you should consider before you proceed with a particular program. So keep in mind that finding the right affiliate products to sell isn’t always about fun.

The power of well-presented affiliate links can be illustrated best with some hard numbers from 2017. Correspondingly, the affiliate networks focus primarily on those three categories. Some of the best affiliate programs are to be found in web hosting. The only prerequisite is to have a functional website and even that is not compulsory for those of you who know how to leverage social media.

    MonsterInsights makes it super easy to automatically track your affiliate links. It comes with a link tracking feature that helps monitor URL clicks, banner ads, and other outbound links. You can combine this with page insights and other reports to get a more comprehensive analysis. You can also enable auto-linking feature to automatically add affiliate links for certain keywords.

    Before you get too excited, know that great affiliate marketing is built on trust. While seemingly there are an endless number of products or services to promote, it’s best to only highlight those you personally use or would recommend. Even when a product interests you or fits within an existing hobby, becoming a great marketer for that product takes a lot of work. Successful affiliate marketing offers the potential to significantly scale your earnings without hiring extra help. You can introduce new products to your current audience and build campaigns for additional products while your existing work continues to generate revenue in the background.

    Forex trading is a fast-paced, exciting option and some traders will focus solely on trading this asset class. They may even choose to specialise in just a few select currency pairs, investing a lot of time in understanding the numerous economic and political factors that move those currencies. Interest rates, inflation rates and foreign currency rates are all interconnected, and as some rise others can fall. Central banks control the interest rate as a measure to control inflation. If a central bank wants to decrease inflation, it can increase interest rates in a bid to stop spending and lending.A key advantage of spot forex is the ability to open a position on leverage. Leverage allows you to increase your exposure to a financial market without having to commit as much capital. If the pound rises against the dollar, then a single pound will be worth more dollars and the pair’s price will increase.

Blockchain could be used in detecting counterfeits by associating unique identifiers to products, documents and shipments, and storing records associated to transactions that cannot be forged or altered. It is however argued that blockchain technology needs to be supplemented with technologies that provide a strong binding between physical objects and blockchain systems. The EUIPO established an Anti-Counterfeiting Blockathon Forum, with the objective of "defining, piloting and implementing" an anti-counterfeiting infrastructure at the European level. The Dutch Standardisation organisation NEN uses blockchain together with QR Codes to authenticate certificates.Bitcoin’s blockchain is public, which means anyone who owns Bitcoin can view the transaction record. While it can be difficult to trace the identity behind an account, the record shows which accounts are transacting on the blockchain. Public blockchains also allow any user with the required computer power to participate in approving and recording transactions onto the blockchain as a node. In 2019, Facebook announced that it would be launching its own cryptocurrency, then called Libra.

  9. On top of that, Meta now has a lot more customers, giving it a chance to gather more data about how normal folks use virtual reality and tailor experiences to those tastes. If Zuckerberg's thesis about the metaverse is correct, then this year's new crop of VR users will help inform Meta, and other companies working on similar technologies, to decide on what kind of experiences to make next. Valve's headset might be the most interesting PC virtual reality experience this year, just for its fancy new controllers.
    Developed as Cruz-Neira's PhD thesis, it involved a multi-projected environment, similar to the holodeck, allowing people to see their own bodies in relation to others in the room. Antonio Medina, a MIT graduate and NASA scientist, designed a virtual reality system to "drive" Mars rovers from Earth in apparent real time despite the substantial delay of Mars-Earth-Mars signals. Sketchpad, a system for drawing interactively on a CRT display with a light pen and control board. Sutherland paid careful attention to the structure of data representation, which made his system useful for the interactive manipulation of images. In 1964 he was put in charge of IPTO, and from 1968 to 1976 he led the computer graphics program at the University of Utah, one of DARPA’s premier research centres. In 1965 Sutherland outlined the characteristics of what he called the “ultimate display” and speculated on how computer imagery could construct plausible and richly articulated virtual worlds.
