Kailan's Picks for the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Kailan's 2018 Nordstrom Sale Picks
This was my first year participating in the Nordstrom sale, EVER, let alone with early access! I’m sure we’ve all noticed that things are selling out faster than our brains can handle. But I found that if you search by what you’re really looking for, as opposed to just what’s popular, there’s still much to choose from! Read on to see how, what, and why I chose!



What I Bought Round 2: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks Under $45

Nordstrom Sale Picks Under $50 (except for the shoes)


Well guys, I went back for round two of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - early access goes until July 19! Here's what I got mostly under $45 with the exception of the shoes. After I placed my initial order, I got notified that both the Topshop rose cardigan and the Kut step-hem jeans were sold out (BUMMER), so I decided to fill in the gaps and scoop up a few more items. I'm still tempted to get a new coat for the season - which pieces are you loving this year??

Get the Look for Less: Megan Markle's Stunning Yellow Dress and Manolo Blahnik Nude Pumps

Meghan Markle Yellow Dress Look for Less
This dress style is a ladylike classic for the books! Meghan Markle stuns in a bright canary yellow sheath dress (already sold out!) alongside her new hubby during an event in London. This was a refreshing sight, as she usually sticks to a neutral (yet still gorgeous) color palette. Perhaps Jackie Kennedy was an inspiration? This dress deserves all the attention, so nude pumps and dainty curved bar earrings will do, but we added a statement necklace and soft blue clutch to complete it and still look as splendid as a duchess!
