#NSale 2018 | My First Picks

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks

Today I filmed a massive Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try-on haul on my Instagram story. I love filming try on hauls for you guys. It’s therapeutic; a time to enjoy what I love, connect with y’all, and try on clothes. Although it may seem silly because it’s just clothes… Developing your own style and staying true to who you are can be difficult. I want every single person to know how special, beautiful, and loved they are. If an outfit can inspire someone or give them confidence, that’s all I can ask for!

I enjoyed this particular try-on haul even more than usual because early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open! You will definitely want to read this if you are interested in shopping this sale the right way!

I woke up super early for the sale and was able to snag some of my top picks for this try-on haul. Scroll down for sizing details and links to everything.

    Nordstrom is a bit out of my price range, even with the sales. Do you know of any stores that still have high-quality clothes like Nordstrom but are more budget friendly?
