How to Shop The Best Deals At The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Everything You Need To Know About The Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! But what is that about this Sale that everyone talks about? 

First things first, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a multi-week event with massive markdowns that has been happening every year for almost 3 decades. The sale is all about staples for the fall. The merchandise is all new, with pricing going up in August after the end of the event. 

Not everyone gets access to the Sale at the same time, but the majority of Nordstroms loyal members get access this week! 

Here’s the brake down: Nordstroms Rewards Icon Members have access first ONLINE, starting today, July 12th. The ambassador members access are starting on the 14th. Then, the influencer members access, aka all Nordstroms cardholders starts on July 16th. All the other shoppers will have access in-store or online of the sale starting July 28th, regardless if you are a new shopper or loyal customer. Sale ends on August 8th.

There are so many good options in all categories on this sale. However, not just because things are on sale it means you need to buy them. I talk with my clients about that all the time: if you can buy it, let’s buy things with intension. For example, if you have your eye on something, check if it matches with things you already own, or the item incorporates into your lifestyle and your best new version.


How to Shop Efficiently And Get The Best Deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

  1. Make a list: check on things that you really need – this sale is good for stocking up for fall basics or for a fall wardrobe refresh. 
  2. If you have kept your eye on something, but you were hesitating because of budget, now it’s the time to look if the item is on sale – you can preview the items on sale here, regardless of your membership/shopping status.
  3. If you are not a member yet, sign up for The Nordy Club (Nordstroms rewards points program). After that, schedule a Personal Double Points Day to earn 2x points towards notes (kind of Nordstroms “cash rewards” that you can apply towards your purchase). 
  4. Shop Online – It’s faster and the inventory online is huge (sometimes not all the items are available in store).

I know this sale can get overwhelming, so take advantage and use the shopping guides I have curated below with some of the best picks for a fall wardrobe refresh! From going back to work or staying cozy at home, I’ve put together and multiplied looks using items from many of my favorite brands included in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

7 Quick & Easy Strategies To Pack Smart For Your Trip

July 1, 2021

As the world starts to reopen, travel season is back, and even better than that it’s Summer! I know you must be excited to show off outfits that you didn’t wear over a year now, but nobody likes to pay over the limit luggage fees or deal with heavy suitcases with clothes you are not going to wear in your trip. If you think about it, overpacking can turn into a waste of money and time, and it can take moments away from your travel experience, so I thought it would be nice to share my experience with a few quick, efficient and easy packing strategies I use for myself as well as for helping my clients. Here are 7 Quick & Easy Strategies To Pack Smart For Your Trip:

1. Check on the weather of your destination before you go.

The weather will help to determine what to pack. Usually you can check on the weather one week ahead on your smart phone. If you go for longer trips, check on the Weather Channel for estimates, for example, to get a forward outlook.

2. Try-on or lay-out outfits before you pack.

Go to your closet and mix items, take pictures of the outfits combinations you put together and save them on your phone’s album. Use this album as a resource both when you are packing and at your destination, so you don’t waste precious time running around trying to figure out what to wear in your trip.

3. Bring multipurpose pieces, so you pack less.

What you wear to your travel destination counts, so if you are wearing a jacket and certain shoes on the plane or in the car for example, multipurpose these items, and make sure they are part of your overall outfit planning. This is connected to Quick Tip number 2, versatility is key!

4. Forget about the “just in case” items.

If you really need it, buy it at your destination – You never know, you may find something unique and amazing, that might make that time memorable!

5. Organize in packing cubes

I usually put each outfit in a packing cube. Another way is to fold and roll each outfit together – specially with children this is so helpful. Get Rolling!

6. Start packing early.

As everything with travel, you should plan ahead, and that includes time for packing too. When you leave things for last minute, you just keep adding stuff in your luggage, meaning overpacking.

7. Most importantly, have fun in the process.

Keep positive thoughts and envision you at your destination fully enjoying the experience, and all of your hard work getting there. In conclusion, since your packing is more efficient now, you can save room for souvenirs, and new items that you might wanna go shopping for in your trip!

Short or long trip, what’s your next destination? 


Spring Must Have: The White Blazer

April 13, 2021

The White Blazer is a must have during the Spring/ Summer months. The trend keeps coming back year after year because of its versatility. In other words, it can be considered a Spring wardrobe staple and a great option for a work-smart outfit during the warmer months. As a result, you can make more serious outfits feel breezy and relaxed in the most crispy Spring days or Summer nights. 


Get ready for this go-to piece you definitely want to be sporting in every lunch/ brunch date this spring or even at your zoom calls paired with comfy casual neutral trousers.

Trench Coat: The Best Transitional Piece for Spring

March 17, 2021

Spring showers are on the way, and a trench coat is the best transitional piece to have in your closet when Spring starts.

Spring like Fall is a transitional season, and one of the best times to wear a trench coat. 

Invented by two British luxury clothing manufactures Burberry and Aquascutum as a military garment in the 19th Century, a trench coat is timeless and tailored, which makes it a classic wardrobe staple that adds style and flair to any outfit.

A trench coat is also an excellent layering piece. The perfect combination of practical and stylish, especially as a transitional coat. It looks equally great styled casually or formally. 


You can toss on a trench for a more casual but elegant look with jeans and a t-shirt or sweater paired with loafers, ballet flats, pumps, or ankle boots. If you want to go ultra-casual, wear a hoodie or sweatshirt and sneakers. To dress things up, and shift it to a more formal work dress code, you can wear it over a tailored dress, over blouses and pencil skirts, or even pantsuits.

Valentine’s Day Outfits Ideas

February 11, 2021

Valentine’s Day Outfits Ideas. I love to make my looks more interesting and versatile, and I am always changing the styles of my outfits by adding some styling tricks for a little extra (or some “bossa” like we say it in Brazil).

With so many having our date night at home this Valentine’s Day, I put together two great outfits that are great if you either like to dress up or stay casual, but looking put together.

Look 1 – The AT Home Sophisticated Look

Styling Trick: I tied a knot in the front of my blazer to make it look almost like a bow. I love how it came together. 


Look 2 – Casually Waiting For My Valentine Look

Styling Trick: Gave a turtle neck fitted dress that I usually dress it up with heels, a transformation into a more casual look. The sneakers in addition with the jean jacket, gives the cool vibe approach for a more casual atmosphere.

How To Incorporate Pantone’s Color Of The Year Into Your Outfit in 2021

January 6, 2021

How to Incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year into your outfit in 2021.

I ran a pool on my Instagram Stories over the holidays, and my followers told me that they loved the combo of colors Gray (for resilience), and yellow (for vivacity), Pantone selected as the color of the year for 2021. 

Many people are afraid to wear colors during the winter:

  1. because they are just so used to wearing the same old black, or 
  2. because most of the time they don’t know how to match colors. 

No problem, I can help you with that and you will see much more of this topic coming from me here an on my social pages this year. 

But to begin with the Pantone colors combo gray and yellow, a quick way to start incorporating them into your outfit, is by browsing through your own closet to see what choices you have in these colors and start with that. You can consider shopping for pieces in those shades to compliment what you already have in either color.

The trick with the outfit I picked by just browsing my closet was the layering and accessories that compliment each other without looking bulky.  I used monochromatic shades of gray as a base in order to give contrast to the look and then added the bright yellow to my hat to add vivacity and fun.

But how this post can relate to you and your every day life?

Pantone’s Color of the Year reflects color trends in fashion, beauty, design and home decor, and since the beginning, the initiative has also served as a mood ring of sorts, capturing the spirit of the time. 

It means you will see much more of these colors throughout 2021 in your visuals while shopping and in creative society as a whole. It also means that you can think out of the box and mix them with other complementary colors too, following your style and what makes sense with your lifestyle.

The stores have already started putting out the new trend colors. Shop below my picks to get ready:

Pantone 2021 Color of the Year

December 29, 2020

Pantone 2021 Color of the Year

The neutral – Ultimate Gray & the vibrant light Illuminating yellow – is the color paring that brings the message of strength and hopefulness that are at the same time, both enduring and uplifting for 2021.

Have you combined yellow with gray colors when picking out an outfit? Or using this combination alone or together with other colors in your home decor, in graphic design or projects alike? If so, you are ahead of the game and ready for 2021 according to the Pantone book! 

Every year since 1999, Pantone forecasts and announces in the beginning of December the color that will best reflect the year ahead – “The Color of the Year”.

This year Pantone has chosen a combo of colors, because Illuminating is associated with optimism and vivacity; while Ultimate Gray encourages resilience. Colors symbolisms that will definitely be of good use in 2021.

A lot of people use the psychology and the symbolism of colors to ring on the New Year.  Like in Brazil it is tradition to wear white to ring on the New Year, while here in the US we see more sequins.

What do you think of the gray and yellow combo? Comment below??

Fashion Finds During Quarantine Closet Cleaning

April 14, 2020

Fashion finds during quarantine closet cleaning. We need to clean up our closet every once in a while, and little treasures can be found in the process, like this dress I wore for Easter!

I got this dress as an option for a pregnancy shoot when I was expecting my second child, and I never wore it! I bought a size up at the time because of the bump. Now it’s a bit loose, but after belting it up it gives me a great silhouette and fits perfect! I’m so glad I invested on something I could wear after.

Have you done a closet clean up during these uncertain times, yet? I’m curious to hear what you have found during your cleanups. Let me know about your finds in comments!

Achados Fashion na Limpeza da Quarentena

Achados que você encontra no seu guarda-roupa, enquanto faz a limpa na quarentena. Adoro esse vestido que usei para a Páscoa! Eu comprei esse vestido como segunda opção, para o ensaio de quando eu estava grávida da minha segunda filha, e nunca usei!

Na época, comprei um número acima para servir por causa da barriga. Agora está um pouco largo na cintura, mas depois de colocar um cinto, o caimento ficou perfeito!

O que vocês acharam nas suas arrumações? Tenho certeza que muitos se identificam.

As meninas estão usando Little Me & HM. Meu vestido é Forever 21 e cinto é Mango.
