best sale finds + video

I’ve got a little something different for you today… and hopefully something fun! To celebrate the final day of Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (see my full round up here), and the fact that it opens for EVERYONE tomorrow (YAY!) I’ve created a video of all of my favorites, and I’m even trying them on so you can see them on a human!

Hopefully, it will give you the chance to actually see some of the products and help you map out your game plan. I’m sure you’ve been hearing about this nonstop, so I wanted to give you the good information in a way that’s fun to process. Let me know how you like it! You can check out all of my videos here.

Links to everything the video will be under the “show more” tab under the vid, and I’m placing them below for your convenience! You’ll see in the video, but my favorite find is too fun and we should all be twinkies in them. :)

Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Tory Burch Sandals
Over the Knee Boots

So don’t forget… if you’re a Nordstrom card holder, it’s your last day to shop the exclusive pre-sale! For everyone else… be sure to head to Nordstrom first thing in the morning (the sale will go live at 2am CST… I’ve been known to stay up) to get your mitts on the best stuff before it’s gone! And sadly, that happens quick. But you’ve GOT this.

Happy shopping everyone!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    OMG, Kate! You are hilarious! Some of my Nordstrom sale favorites are already gone, but I’m hoping I can still find some good buys!
