So the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale always happens when my mom and I are up in the Eastern Sierras. This isn’t a story about how we have to wait until we’re home. No, it’s more of a story on how much we LOVE Nordstrom and the Anniversary Sale. So consider this boho dress with jean jacket outfit my homage to the sale and a confession of our indulgences…
Our first 5-7 years in “the mountains,” there wasn’t any cell phone reception where we stayed. As a high schooler (and even into college), I’d drive out to the highway in the evening to call my boyfriend. And on a few occasions, my mom went with me – a story I will not soon live down.
Thankfully – for all of us – cell phone reception arrived at the cabin. Now while it may seem distracting from enjoying our time up there (it doesn’t really), it also means my mom and I can stay up there longer because we can check in and get some work done every day!! Or, ya know, shop that Anniversary Sale!
While we aren’t shopping in store together, we do share all our finds with one another and then make some executive decisions about what each of us should order. This is serious business after all!
After not having truly shopped for clothing for myself (maternity outfits were always a short term necessity when shopping), browsing online was kind of a new experience. It was also a difficult one as I’m still not back to my pre-pregnancy size and won’t be for some time!
Boho Dress with Jean Jacket
So I picked a few pieces that I knew I’d get into soon – like this boho dress – as well as a pair of jeans I know I’ll get into by winter, and a pair of boots! Truth be told, this dress doesn’t zip up all the way to the top in the back for me yet, so I have a tank top underneath and I threw my trusty denim jacket over. And nobody is any the wiser that my boho dress with jean jacket ensemble is actually covering up some silly secrets!
