So the sale of the season is finally open for public access! I took advantage of the Early Access sale as a Nordstrom cardholder. There are just so many great things to choose from that I couldn’t help myself! See all my favorites from the sale in this post from last week. What is great about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is that new items for fall are up to 70% off their original prices. So not only do you get to take advantage of the prices, you also get to see what is trending for fall. If you see something you like, you are better off buying it, as items sell out so quickly! Public access to the sale begins at midnight on July 19 and ends on August 4th.

In today’s post I am featuring my favorite dress I purchased from the sale. There are so many nice dresses available this year that it was hard to choose a favorite. I ended up purchasing this Eliza J. Fit and Flare floral print dress. The blue, white and pink colors really caught my eye and I love the fit and flare style. As a short sleeve tank dress this is appropriate for the summer months, but add a navy or white blazer and this dress is perfect for the fall and spring too. I am wearing a size 2 and the dress fits me well.  It doesn’t come in a petite length currently, but the dress is short enough that the regular length would also fit a petite frame.

Unfortunately this dress has sold out in petite sizes. I suspect though that it will become available again soon as Eliza J dresses often are restocked. In the meantime, However, this dress is very similar and is also part of the sale. I also like this gorgeous ombre print dress that is still available during the sale.  This Eliza J. Dress also has a beautiful floral print. It comes in a midi length and has long sleeves so it would be perfect for fall.

The way I have the dress styled here is most appropriate for summer. I actually wore it to work already with a nice pair of  pumps, and I received so many complements on it!

Dresses are not the only thing available during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Now that I’ve had a week to look over everything (both what I ordered online, and what I saw in the store), I want to show you the top 10 things you do not want to miss from the sale! The Anniversary sale is such a great time to get a new sweater, jacket, or jeans for the fall. First of all I love my AG Ankle Cigarette jeans, and this year Nordstrom is offering them in a faded blue color with a finished hem. There is something so classic about these jeans, and they just fit so well! As for boots these Blondo waterproof ones are a must for fall. I bought them in a gray color last year and I wear them all the time in the colder months. Sweaters are always a must, and I bought this BP ribbed cardigan  (so warm and soft!) and this Barefoot dreams classic cardigan. Nordstrom’s selection of jackets for fall is always nice. I especially love this BlankNYC suede moto jacket. I have it in grey, and I wish I had bought it in this years beige color before it sold out in my size. The quality is just so nice for a price of $125! 

As for other must have items, a good bra can always be found during the sale. This Natori underwire bra is what I wear all the time, and it’s nice to see it in additional colors. Tory Burch always offers nice shoes, boots, and bags during the sale, and my favorite is this Everly tote.  When it comes to beauty items, you don’t want to miss out on this GLOPro Microneedling device that so many people have raved about. And finally, if you are looking for a classic and timeless dress for all seasons, this Harper Rose belted dress would be perfect!
