Few things get my fashion juices flowing more so than a great sale.  And, when that said savings celebration is hosted by my absolute favorite department store, well let's just say, it's a happy little moment.  This weekend I spent part of my Saturday checking out all the finds at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale.  I was not disappointed.  Having already checked out the offerings online ahead of time, I had some ideas about what my faves would be this year.  And, despite how wonderful it is to shop from the comfort of your covers in the early morning, I just love to see and feel those items for myself.  Not surprisingly, I loved them in person just as much.  Today I'm sharing my Lucky 13 Must-Haves, some that purchased {like these gorgeous dark chocolate riding boots, this easy-wear cross body bag and this sweet little pendant} and some I'm still wishing for.  Early access shopping for Nordstrom cardholders is happening now and the full sale opens to the public on the 18th. Bargains like these are some of the best of the pre-season but sadly they don't last long.  My advice is that if you see something you know you love, get it for less now.  You'll thank yourself come fall!
