Ruby Gems + Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Roundup No.2 | FASHION



Set your alarms, my friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public TONIGHT (July 22) at 12:01 am PT! You don't have to pay full price to add new fall pieces to your wardrobe, but you do have to act fast. Several of my favorite items are already sold out from the early access pre-sale. Know what you're looking for before the sale opens so you can get in and get out. I know, it sounds like I'm prepping you for a natural disaster emergency strategy, but let me tell ya, if items sell out while they're sitting in your shopping'll be calling SOS! 

I rounded up my favorite dresses, dressy accessories and crossbody bags to get you started with previewing the sale here. The next roundup is included below! 

Also, if you don't know about, they're amazing. No, I'm not working for them...I personally use their site to get cash back from my favorite stores when I'm shopping online. Definitely one of the best shopping tools to always get a discount (up to 40% off your favorite stores). The cash back percentages fluctuate from week to week...they're offering 6% off of purchases right now! All you have to do is sign up, then start shopping by searching Nordstrom ON the Ebates website...if you do not access Nordstrom first through the Ebates site, you won't get cash back..but yes, it's as simple as that! Oh, and did I mention it's FREE? That's money for shopping at stores you already shop. Click below to cash in!!!

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Ok, back to the Nordstrom sale! My 2nd roundup is down below, so keep scrolling! I'm also featuring two of the items I personally purchased from the ruby gems. :)

The top is Free People (available in 3 color options on sale for $71.90 (originally $108)...

What makes it so great?

  1. Age--I purchased it in blue for my mom and I love that it's an accessible look for multiple generations, which is really unique.

  2. Fit--super flattering drop waist swing (runs large--I'm wearing an XS).

  3. Versatility--dress it up or dress it down. Pair it with flats, boots, heels...try it with black, navy, khaki, beige, tan, gray, white. You name it, it works.


As for the hat, I can't even. It's gorgeous! The shape alone is stunning, but to add the red to it is just over the top. Available in 4 color options...I'm tempted to buy it in this deep teal!

I normally don't like being matchy matchy when I'm pairing accessories with my outfits, but this look has a monochromatic vibe to it that comes across modern as opposed to matchy, at least in my opinion.

Shop the look...
