Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Picks


Hip hip hooray, it’s here! Today is the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale! Twice a year, Lilly holds a sale on pieces from recent seasons, and it’s my favorite time of the year to buy new Lilly! Honestly, I very rarely pay full price for anything Lilly because I’m working with a college student budget.

I tried waiting to get through the MASSIVE online line this morning, but the site kept crashing. So, I popped on during my lunch break at work to check things out! There are some great goodies this year and I’ve shared all of my faves below.

Preparing for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s officially one of my favorite times of the year to shop, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts in less than a week!!! For as long as I can remember, my mom and I would shop for my new school clothes and shoes during the sale. As I’ve grown older, I’ve continued to check out the sale every year because it’s one of the best and biggest sales around! Early Access begins the 14th and the sale opens to the public on the 22nd. Do you want to shop Early Access? Today, I’m telling you how as well as giving you a few tips and tricks for if you plan on shopping the sale this year!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 | Bowtiful Life


Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Anniversary Sale, the #NSale (as it’s referred to on social media) is a wonderful time of year when Nordstrom discounts their brand new Fall/Winter products before they reach the sales floor at their regular prices. As you know, most sales are on “old” products, so the Anniversary Sale is very much the opposite and that’s part of what makes it so great! #NSale items will include everything from clothes to jewelry to beauty to handbags and more from both designer and in-store brands. Items go back to their regular prices on August 8th, so if you want something from the sale, now’s the time to get it!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Top Picks

For as long as I can remember, I’ve associated mid-July with back to school wardrobe shopping during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale! My mom and I would hop into our car and make our way over to the mall to shop for new shoes, jeans, and a few fun accessories to spruce up my outfits for the coming school year. As I’ve gotten older, that tradition has morphed from an annual trip with my mom into a week worth of browsing trips with friends, and it’s still just as much fun!

Yesterday was the first day of early access to the sale for Nordstrom credit & debit cardholders! If you’re a cardholder, then you get to start shopping right now! If you aren’t a cardholder *raises hand* you’ll just have to wait to shop the sale until July 17th like me (unless you decide to sign up for a card right here).

Even though I’ve never been a cardholder, I always take a peek during early access to scope out my favorite pieces from the sale for the year. This time around I’m loving this locket from Argento Vivo, this structured Rebecca Minkoff tote, this breezy tank from Eileen Fisher, and these Kate Spade sunnies.

This is Nordstrom’s best sale of the year and I never miss out on it! You can check out some more of my favorite deals below. Happy shopping!

After Party Sale Scores!

I posted on Sunday about Lilly Pulitzer’s After Party Sale, which started yesterday morning. The sale goes through the 20th, but I usually do my shopping on the very first day. Yesterday I got up early as I had planned and made my purchases before moving back to campus later on that morning. I actually made four separate orders since shipping was free and I wanted to make sure that I got the items I wanted before they sold but. I scored the murfee scarf I’d been hoping to purchase, an iPhone case I’ve had my eye on, a pair of callahans, and one of the wiley ruffle tube tops. I’m happy to say that I made a budget this year and not only did I follow it, I was actually under-budget! Thank goodness for responsible shopping and good sales. Another plus to this year’s sale was that the site didn’t crash! You can still shop the sale {here}.
Did you purchase anything from this year’s Lilly sale?

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

Just in case you hadn’t already heard…
the HUGE Lilly Pulitzer sale is tomorrow!!!
The sale starts at 8am (EST) and I’m planning on getting up by 6:30 CST at the latest so that I’ll be up, caffeinated, on my laptop, and all ready to go at 7am CST/8am EST. This is the best time of year to get Lilly on sale at the very best prices, so it’s one of my favorite mornings of the year. It’s going to be a BIG day because just a few hours after that I’ll be moving into my new dorm!
busy busy busy!
Are you planning on shopping the Lilly sale tomorrow?

Work. Play. Sale! & Kate Spade Wallet Wish List

Hey lovelies! I’ve been in need of a new wallet for a bit and I’ve been eyeing the Kate Spade ones for quite a while… Hurray for surprise sales! Kate Spade recently started their “Work. Play. Sale!” sale during which you can take an additional 25% off of their sale items through July 6th.
I am having quite a difficult time picking one, or deciding if any of them are exactly what I’m looking for. That being said, I’m an especially big fan of the Cobble Hill Lacey in “grace blue,” the Brightspot Avenue Lacey in “fresh air,” and the Cobblestone Park Lacey in “french navy.” I’m very particular about wallets and I’ve tried plenty of companies over the last few years. After hearing rave reviews about the Kate Spade wallets I’m seriously considering one of their wallets as a possible, upcoming purchase and investment.
What’s your opinion on Kate Spade’s wallets? Love them, like them, or dislike them? Let me know in the comments! Also, if you have any recommendations for other high quality brands that make similar styles and colors (and don’t cost an arm and a leg) I’d love to hear them!
