One of the biggest complaints I hear from girls about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that they don't want to purchase fall clothes now because they will just end up sitting in their closet for months.  This is especially hard if you live in the south because you won't be able to wear sweaters until December.  And that's if you're lucky.  So, for today's post I thought I would share some of my picks that you can wear now in the dreadful heat and later when the temperatures finally start to cool off!

Currently the sale is still early access but that changes this Friday!  I've already seen some items sell out and be restocked, so I'm hoping that will be the case with this top later this week.  I didn't originally see it online, but stumbled upon it while I was shopping in store and knew it had to come home with me!  It's the perfect combination of flirty and feminine and is thin enough to keep you cool now and will look amazing with a faux leather or denim jacket come fall.  For size reference the top is meant to be very flowy but does fit rather small in the arms and there is no stretch to the fabric.

Now, I have to take a minute to talk about this denim.  I shared on Instagram that I'm super picky about my jeans and absolutely hate spending a ton on one pair.  I know denim is generally priced according to quality, but Kyle and my friends can attest that it almost killed me to spend over $100 on jeans last winter.  Don't get me wrong the jeans I bought were great, but I knew that if I had more time to search I could have found something similar at a better price point.

This year I'm glad I realized before winter that I needed a few new pairs.  Before searching the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I had never tried on a pair of Vigoss jeans, but I'm definitely a convert now.  This year they have several different styles and colors in the sale and they're all under $50! In my opinion they do run a little small (I sized up) but other than that they fit wonderfully! As I'm writing this, most sizes are still available in most of the washes, but that can change pretty quickly from day to day with this sale!

If you've had a chance to shop the sale, what have been your favorites so far?  I'd love to hear!  I hope your week is off to a great start!
