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!



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!



Heidi Klum's White Floral Maxi Dress and T-Strap Sandals Look for Less

Heidi Klum White Floral Maxi Dress Look for Less
Heidi Klum looks how a boho princess should in a beautiful floral maxi dress with balloon sleeves and a deep v-neck. She cinches her waist with a belt, showing off some shape while still enjoying the loose fit. Sling a trendy cognac circle bag over your shoulder and matching t-strap sandals to keep it casual, and nothing ups your cool factor like a glossy pair of mirrored aviators!



Priyanka Chopra's Red Shirtdress and Fendi Runway Tote Look for Less

Priyanka Chopra Red Shirtdress Look for Less
A lady in red is sure to turn heads! We are obsessed with this fiery shirtdress on Priyanka Chopra. The belt and piping detail give it a crisp look for an outing that requires something a little dressier, but still has some flare to it! This dress we found from LOFT is available in petite and plus sizes, and we're all about the $70 price tag too. Strappy gold heeled sandals will add a touch of elegance, oval sunglasses for a bit of spunk, and a berry lip for an extra pop that compliments the color in focus. And we must say, Priyanka has the best taste in handbags - they always take the entire look to a whole new level of envious!



Get the Look for Less: Kristin Cavallari in Alexander Wang Check Mini Dress and Blazer

Kristin Cavallari Plaid Mini Dress Look for Less
Playing the matching game with your pieces can be a bit tricky and border the line of dressing like grandma (especially with plaid), but Kristin Cavallari shows us how it's done in this mini dress and blazer by Alexander Wang. Simplicity is key here, with minimal accessories and black high heel sandals. We threw in a clutch idea to hold your lipstick and other essentials as you dash off for date night! Style your hair in sexy curls with a side part for a classic 1940s look that will finish this fun and flirty, yet polished look.
