It's crazy to think that exactly one year ago I was interning for Nordstrom and working the 2013 Anniversary Sale - oh how time flies by! This year I've selected my Top 10 favorite pieces. It's always odd shopping for fall when it's 90 degrees outside, but this sale creates overwhelming excitement for designing a stellar fall wardrobe. I've always been drawn to lace, but after trying on wedding dresses and veils, I love it more than ever! I selected 3 lace pieces and balanced the femininity with the Helene Berman Wool Blend Cape and Cotton Parka. Oversized sweaters are also one of my favorite aspects of fall and I would definitely pair the MBMJ 'James' Sweater with the Hue 'Leatherette' Leggings. The ASTR Midi Skirt and BaubleBar earrings capture the essence of my personal style. Lastly, I always like to splurge on a nice handbag once or twice a year. I am OBSESSED with this 3.1 Phillip Lim Satchel - not only is it a classic shape that I have been longing for, but this bag has my favorite color colorblocked to perfection. Oh my! Now I'm ready for hot chocolate, crisp leaves, and more cozy sweaters… What are your Anniversary Sale picks?
