A favorite "Holiday"

Every year, mid-July, my favorite "holiday" rolls around... the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!  This is the best sale because it is all new fall stuff at a reduced price.  As soon as the sale is over, the price goes right back up.  It's becoming a bit of a pain because pre-sale shopping is more and more important to be able to get the stuff you really want.  To pre-sale shop in store, you have to be a card member and have an appointment.  This year they did allow pre-sale shopping online, but I rarely buy any clothes or shoes online if I haven't actually tried them on in person.

I had a pre-sale appointment a couple of weeks ago.  It was one thing that kept me in check at the outlet mall.  Also, it's good that my birthday is around the corner and I do my own birthday gift shopping. 

I have developed the habit of buying multiples of something I like.  This shopping excursion was no exception, as you can see.  Here's my loot...

Starting top left and going around clockwise...

Bobeau Shadow Stripe Top (sadly a non-sale item)
Olivia Moon Print Peasant Blouse (wasn't on sale, but now it is!)
Caslon Scoop Neck Tees (good for layering, so got two basic colors)

Caslon Snap Front Tissue Weight Cardigan (love this, bought 4! purple and black shown here)
Me Too Lysette Flat (Love this brand.  So comfy.  Got black and leopard!)

Caslon Tissue Weight Cardigan (black and tan stripe this time)
Halogen Button Funnel Neck Topper (in black and magenta)
Hue Denim Leggings (in midnight rinse)

Caslon Seamed Burnout Tank (got this in purple, but it doesn't look as purple in person.  They showed it in store under the navy cardigan and it looked good)
Caslon Doublt V Tunic Sweater (in blue ocean)
Caslon Tissue Weight Cardigan #4 (Navy)

I've included links to most of the items in case I've sparked a shopping spree in you!  Hurry, the holiday sale ends August 6th!

Very cute stuff! Love the black shoes. I need some just like that. I can't decide if I'm a 6.5 or 7 these days. How do they run?
