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!

Gift Card Giveaway – Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! $$


It’s just about time! The most wonderful time of year…The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! 

If you aren’t familiar with this sale, it’s basically when designers release new fall pieces and they immediately go on sale. New fall pieces at sale prices?! Yes, please! 

The sale officially opens to the public on July 22nd, but you can get a sneak peek, and even start shopping early (what?!?) if you are a cardholder!

Becoming a card holder is EASY! 

I know what you are thinking. Credit card?! No thanks! 

While there is a credit card option, I prefer the debit card. This is easy peasy, lemon squeezy. This basically attaches your bank information (your debit card) to Nordstrom. Meaning all you have to do is give them your routing number and account number and you get a new Nordstrom debit card! Anytime you use your Nordstrom debit card, it is directly taken out of your bank account. No interest and no debt! 

This way, you get to shop 8 days early. This is definite bonus as you get access to the sale before the public and get first pick on hot fall finds at their sale price before they sell out!
