I am ALL ABOUT finding multiple ways to wear my clothes. In fact, the more versatile an item of clothing is, the more it is free. In my mind. #sherrimath is a real thing. Or at least I'm trying to make it into one, so that I can convince John that I am actually frugal.
It's not working.
Anyway, while I was basically squatting at my local Nordstrom the last 3 weeks, I was introduced to this skirt. And before I show you why it is SO GOOD, let me just say this: I was pretty certain this skirt and I wouldn't be friends. In fact, I would have probably never tried it. But then. THEN I did. And now we are married and I have to wear it EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
There are SOME PEOPLE who will actually be GLAD when the Anniversary Sale ends tomorrow. These are obviously crazy people, who wouldn't know a good deal if it smacked them in the face. Or was hypothetically delivered to their doorstep via the kind folks at UPS. You know who you are. JOHN.
Just kidding. Mostly. But I'll bet some of you #girlmoms will relate so hard to this post. When our daughters were babies and toddlers, it was REALLY FUN to dress them, right? Whether you were into smocking or skinny jeans, cold shoulder shirts or big bows, it's like playing dress up with a cute doll. One who cries, poops, and throws tantrums. yes. But a doll who will at least wear what the heck you spend your cash money on, because DOESN'T SHE KNOW PEOPLE PAY YOU TO DO THIS??. A-HEM.
Now, I'm not saying I have favorites among my precious anniversary sale purchases. Except that I do. I totally do. And can I tell y'all a little secret? Almost none of those favorites ever come from Round One. Year after year, it's ACTUALLY my ROUND 2 (or 3...or 4....) picks that end up being my go-to staples. (You'll know which ones are my faves by the way you see them many days in a row, without regard for societal norms and things like cleanliness.)
Let's be honest guys, there are WAY MORE than 5 things from the Anniversary Sale that I LOVE AND ADORE AND WANT TO COME LIVE WITH ME FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.
(Because I am obviously excited about the #nsale at what is a completely normal and emotionally stable level.)
Despite being the worst at narrowing down a list, for you guys, I can do it. I came up with FIVE. Five things that are probably selling out as I type these words. I'm looking at you Rag & Bone circle bag that was in my cart on it's merry little way to checkout, and THEN GOT STOLEN FROM ME by Super Speedy Susan, who was more organized, quicker with her card, and who is also fake but it helps me to blame someone, okay? #actlikeitsnormal
As we speak, the Sale That Shall Not Be Named is about to commence. You may know it by it's other name: The Sale that Causes John to Twitch Every Time A Package Arrives. Clearly, I'm referring to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. And since it's the most wonderful/annoying time of the year, I wanted to share a few of my tips and tricks to shop the sale LIKE THE BOSS THAT YOU ARE.
