It's that time of year! Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is THE BEST time to shop for Fall's new arrivals at awesome prices. I got the chance to check it out a week early in store since I'm a Nordstrom cardholder, so I've actually seen and touched most of my picks below! Check out my favorites from  each category--to shop, just click on the item! :) Make sure you shop soon--items tend to sell out quickly during the sale, and prices go back up on August 3rd!

I am BEYOND obsessed with this maroon leather fit and flare dress! It's 33% off in the N Sale, so I'm definitely scooping it up before prices go back up! The collar is such a cute accent, and the color is perfect.

I'm also so excited for cooler weather so I can actually wear my jeans and coats. The colorblock parka with faux fur hood is so cozy and chic, and at deal at under $120. I'm usually a dark denim girl, but this pair of light gray skinny jeans is at the top of my wishlist since I can't help but imagine how perfect they would be with black booties or heels and a slouchy sweater!

How incredible is that maroon backpack? (Clearly I'm having a maroon moment.) The gold buckles and genuine leather are super luxe and even prettier in person! If a clutch is more your style, definitely check out this ombre leather envelope version! It's on sale for less than $60, which is a total steal!

I've been in the market for a cool new pair of headphone, and this pair from Frends with oil-slick scalloped edges is super cool and totally practical. It also comes with an awesome set of earbuds!

OMG CAN IT BE BOOT SEASON ALREADYYY. While there will always be a place in my heart for pumps and heels, a boot season is my absolute favorite because the shoe game is just SO. GOOD. How incredible is that pair of burgundy leather wide calf riding boots?! Dying.

For those of you shopping for pieces to wear now, I'm beyond obsessed with the teal ankle strap heels. They've got awesome detailing behind the ankle, too!

Another item definitely in my cart already is is the simple black suede ankle boot. I wore my last pair to death, and this looks like the perfect replacement!

Ohhhh beauty stuff always always always gets me (because who doesn't have space for just one more lipstick or eyeshadow palette?). It is especially hard to resist sets, because they're always such a great value! The Chanel travel set above, for example, has eye, cheek, and lip products, brushes, AND a mascara. All for under $100! Such an amazing deal.

I got to swatch the NARS lip pencil set at the store last week, and holy cow, they are SO pigmented, and so gorgeous! All three colors looked great on my skintone too, which is usually a hard thing for me to accomplish! NARS also totally hit it out of the park with their Blame it on NARS cheek palette, which comes with a bronzing shade, 2 blushes, a highlight, AND a travel size NARS Ita kabuki brush! It's a $160 value, on sale for $59. Crazy, right?! 

What do you guys think of the sale? Will you be picking anything up? I'd love to hear what your wishlist items are! :D
