Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ( & real talk about bloggers making $ from this)

It's that time of year again; the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This is one of the BIGGEST sales of any retailer at any point in the year (yep, bigger than Black Friday and Boxing Day!) For anyone that doesn't know this is a sale that opened to the public today and lasts until August 3rd. During this time select NEW fall items (ie. not last season's items) are on sale at incredibly reduced prices. Nordstrom indicates beside each item the price it will be selling at after this blitz sale so you can see how much of a discount you are receiving.

I was torn as to whether to do a post on this sale (see explanation about this at the bottom of this post) so I decided to compromise and do a post on it- but as an additional post so as to not take away from my regular content. Win-win! SO without further ado here are my picks from the NSale - both for office/work & for the weekend. Links are at the bottom of each photo OR you can scroll the photo widget and click on the image photo :)  Get these items ASAP as things sell out FAST!

And now my picks for weekend wear! There are some AMAZING deals to be had (especially on footwear & denim):

I was unsure about whether to do a post on the sale for one main reason. A lot of people hate Nordstrom Sale posts... primarily because every blogger and their mother (..and their cat, ...and their baby) does one. As such, if you read a couple or more fashion blogs on a regular basis you get complete over kill of the sale at this time of year. However, I wanted to do a post on the NSale for three reasons:

1) I feel like my selections are different than most other fashion bloggers, because of my blog's focus on professional/office wear.

2) I really do LOVE a number of the items in this year's sale

3) I want to make $$$. 
- real talk: fashion bloggers make money off of affiliate links. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale provides a huge opportunity (so many items!) for bloggers to make extra money. In fact, many bloggers cite July as their highest earning month because of this sale. I, being the small blogger that I am, do not make a lot of money of the blog - I do it for fun. However, I do get to earn some money from affiliate links and so yes, I admit that I wanted in on this Nordstrom "action"! Affiliate links make me mere pennies (just so were clear) so my goal is that with this sale I can earn an extra dollar or so because of this post (that is literally all.. $1). I really appreciate any/all of your support in clicking the links to the items you like! It doesn't cost you anything (clearly) but helps me continue this blog.
