While most people were glued to their televisions yesterday watching the Portugal vs. France Soccer match, I was gearing up for a major sporting event of my own, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

For those of you who may not be versed in the ways of the #NSale – it is where next sesason’s hottest items are on sale. Yes, you read that right – all of next season’s hottest trends will be offered at sale prices, but only for a very limited time! For those of you who have an Nordstrom Debit/Credit card -Nordstrom offers oodles of rewards – plus, early access to the sale, from July 14-21 and then access is offered to the public from July 22 to August 7th.

Another cool thing about the Nordstrom Rewards program, is that for all you buy, you receive rewards certificates to spend in stores. I linked my debit card to the Nordstrom program so I would get the benefits of the program, without having to open up a credit card!

Stay tuned for some really fabulous deals to come – I will be sharing my fave for you on the blog, in the mean time here are some of the fun items I will be picking up this season:
