My Teacher Proof Nsale Picks & a Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway!

Growing up, the start of school meant a lot of things, but most importantly, back to school shopping. I was a total freak about this time of year. I looked forward to it ALL year long, and started listing the things I needed to buy in June, just as school got out for the summer. I saved all summer long, adding to the budget my parents allocated to me and as the days got closer, I got increasingly more excited. I remember laying in bed the night before, like a kid on Christmas Eve, giddy and unable to sleep. Please tell me I am not the only fashionista out there who remembers feeling this way at 8 years old?!?

As a teacher, I am happy to say that I still indulge in a little back to school shopping. Teacher’s have to look fresh on the first day too!! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was the perfect opportunity to stock up on new fall pieces. I picked up a few goodies that will be easy to mix and match into my wardrobe this fall and winter!

I love dresses because they are so easy to wear! I picked up multiple options because they are so easy to layer with leggings and sweaters in the frigid winter months! I bought a few different pairs of shoes, including some waterproof boots that are cute AND practical. Last but not least, a good school tote is a must. I lug a lot of papers and my work computer from home to school and need a sturdy, roomy bag that is also cute so I can take it from work to date night!

There aren’t many days left to shop the Nordstrom Sale! Time is running out! Don’t forget to also enter the Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway for $1320! Just enter the widget below the collage! Good luck!

    YES I so remember being that excited for school shopping! We would come home from the mall and my sister and I would model all our new outfits. I remember friends thinking I was so strange getting excited for back to school clothes in June and July. Good memories!
