As much as I love love love summer (it is by FAR my favorite season), there is something about fall shopping that always makes the cool crisp air a little less depressing. I have always been completely obsessed with “Back to School Shopping”. Growing up, mid-late August was one of my favorite times of the entire year. It was the only time of the year my brother and I were taken out shopping (usually with our grandparents) and allowed to go a little “crazy“. My brother dreaded the trip to the mall but I counted down the days. Afterwards I would compile my outfits for the first two weeks of school finding the best ways to incorporate my new pieces for the perfect “Back to School” looks. More often than not I would make my entire family watch as I strutted through the living room in my new clothes fashion show style. I continued this trend throughout college much to the dismay of my boyfriend(s) who found little entertainment in my wannabe runway antics. Hmm…wonder why they didn’t stick around (;
Obviously Nordstrom is one of the best places for back to school shopping. As a kid I wasn’t usually the cute kid decked out in Nordstrom. I preferred Limited Too (RIP) but generally was adorned with Old Navy and Target. Now that I’m a grown up and no longer have Back to School shopping I still like to celebrate the occasion just as a small symbol of my support for public education (I’m kidding of course). My fall wish list is full of Nordstrom goodies. I could peruse the Nordstrom website all day and STILL find more to buy (and trust me, I have). Since I’m currently residing in the beautiful Canadian wilderness there isn’t a Nordstrom accessible to me, it’s slightly depressing but I don’t think the rest of the world should be punished just because I’m living in Nordstrom isolation.
Which is why my fashionable August sponsors and I decided to give away a $150 Nordstrom gift card to one lucky reader (hmm probably a conflict of interest if it’s me). In case you need any help finding a reason to enter the giveaway let me help you out a bit. Here’s my fall fashion wish list (it can be yours too)!:
