How to style a Polkadot skirt? You came to the right site! Today I will be sharing 4 ways to style a Polkadot skirt this summer. I’m so excited to share this fun video that I did two weeks ago. As you all know I’m a huge fan of skirts. They’re really easy to wear year around and easy to style. For all my ladies looking for a easy versatile style , I put together some great pieces that you can wear now.
Can you guys believe that The Anniversary Sale is almost here?! It is one of the biggest events of the year and everyone looks forward to it. I know it hasn’t started yet; but I wanted to give ya’ll a “heads up” for what you will be expecting. As you all know, I work for Nordstrom so I am fortunate enough to know what will be happening for this event. The photos that I’m sharing are from last year Anniversary Sale!
Nordstrom has decided to change a few things this year when it comes to The Anniversary sale. That being said; I will be breaking down the dates for ya’ll and I will also give you guys some tips to prepare for the sale so you don’t miss out.
On the first day of the sale, only card holders are allowed to shop. Also, no one will have access to online shopping until July 12th.
July 9: Level 4 (Icons Only)
July 10-11: Level 4 & 3 (Icons and Ambassadors)
July 12-19: All levels with Nordstrom cards are allowed to shop in store and online. It is Nordstrom way to encourage their customers to come in to the store to see what is new. Besides we love seeing your happy faces!
July 19-August 4: Public Sale
How do I prepare for this sale so I don’t miss out on my favorite products?
I won’t lie. This sale is so huge that everything sells out fast. Here are 5 tips that can help you prepare for The Anniversary Sale.
1). Book an appointment! If you have a favorite person that you like to shop with; book it now. Every sales person at Nordstrom will know what products we will have in our store. They can have a room ready for you once you give them your list.
2).Get the Nordstrom card. If you aren’t a card ember, I highly suggest opening a card for this sale. You can apply for a Nordstrom card online HERE or in the store with any sales associate.
3). Make a list. This is very important. Make your list and give it to your personal shopper. Nordstrom will send a catalog to all card holders on June 26 so they can view all the Fall/Winter clothes. You can also get together with a sales associate and they can show you the catalog through the Nordstrom On app that each employee will have downloaded on their phone.
4). Buy and Return. This is very simple. I can’t begin to tell you how many people miss out on an item because they can’t decide whether or not to buy it; and when they finally decide to purchase it, it’s sold out. When in doubt; buy it! Just go home and try it on with different outfits. If it is not for you; you can always return it.
5). Check back often. Things often get returned; but the good items never do. Check everyday to see if your favorite item came back in stock. Also check with your favorite sales associate to see if your item is back in stock.
I hope that these dates and tips will help you to prepare for The Anniversary Sale! It is my favorite event to “shop till you drop” with my clients. Also guys, remember to have fun shopping the sale. I can’t wait to hear what you guys bought.
Thank you for stopping by!
Kyoto was so magical! This beautiful town was full of life and happiness. I felt like I was in Disneyland because there was magic everywhere you went. The people were so nice and helpful. We spent 4 days in Kyoto and loved every minute of it. It only takes two hours to get from Tokyo to Kyoto if you take the bullet train and it is worth the trip.
Below are five things to add to your Kyoto itinerary.
Nishiki Market: Nishiki Market is the main food market in the city. They sell both groceries and ready-to-eat cuisine. It is close to Gion-Station and a very convenient place to visit. If you are a foodee then you must visit Nishiki Market. Here you will find delicious sashimi (including fatty tuna and fatty salmon), lots of mocha ice-cream, doughnuts, Japanese candy, and Snoopy cafe.
Cherry Blossoms: If you are in Kyoto during cherry blossom season, which is in April, you need to check out the Cherry Blossom Trees. You will be absolutely mesmerized. Everywhere Dan and I walked we got the chance to see the blossoming flowers that make Kyoto so magical.
Gion District: Gion District is the old town of Kyoto. It is so beautiful that I would highly recommend just walking around and exploring the area.
Ninen-zaka and Sannen-zaka: Ninen-zaka and Sannen-zaka are two famous streets in Kyoto. Since all the tourists know about these streets; be prepared for it to be very crowded when you visit. And don’t forget to bring your camera because this place is very picturesque! I recommend a late afternoon stroll because there are lots of little shops selling all sorts of things.
Arashiyama Bamboo forest: The Arashiyama Bamboo forest is so beautiful as you walk through the bamboo groves. You will see so many bamboo trees while you are hiking the Arashiyama forest. There are also many other trails that you might want to explore. Dan and I did a 20 minute hike that led us to the Monkey Park. We got to feed bananas to the monkeys and we had a great time! We also walked the trails through Okochi Sanso garden. The garden was so green and beautiful and the city view of Kyoto was extraordinary. You won’t want to miss this wonderful and magical place!
On our last day in Kyoto we spent the morning exploring Fushimi Inari Shrine. We loved this place so much that definitely recommend spending the day here. This place is the most popular tourist attraction in Kyoto similar to the Bamboo Forest in Arashiyama; it can get very busy. Get ready to hike through the red tore gates which can take 2 to 3 hours to get all the way down.We didn’t hike the entire way because I was so exhausted from everything we had done throughout the week; so we hiked for an hour and then we checked out the food stalls nearby.
All of these places that I have suggested are places that you won’t want to miss. Kyoto is a beautiful city that we will always remember. Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoyed this post.
