Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in Canada


Long time no blog. Summer is always crazy and I do like to unplug a bit. But I had to reach out about the Nordstrom sale since it’s in stores for non-card holders starting this Friday. I had a chance to check it out earlier in the week and it really is excellent. As promised, it’s new fall merchandise marked down about 30%. Prices go up once the sale is over.

I shopped with a list since one could blow the budget quite easily. I wanted a moto jacket, chelsea boots, a lightweight casual raincoat for walking Teddy, and a Barefoot Dreams sweater. And, if they had a new pair of sunglasses, I wanted those too since my eyes are very sensitive post-surgery and need something heavier and darker than my usual aviators.

And I had success!

I picked up the Blondo Waterproof Lila Bootie

BlankNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket

The North Face Rissy 2 Packable Wind Resistant Jacket

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Cardigan


these Burburry Patchwork Sunglasses.

I also picked up the Beautyblender travel kit for my daughter since these things are a fortune when regularly priced.


Then I got the heck out of there since I could have spent a fortune on Tory Burch boots, Diptyque candles, Cashmere wraps, and the entire home goods section.

Have you shopped the Anniversary sale yet?

If you are looking for a great beach read, Sophie Kinsella’s Surprise Me was fabulous. I just started Jane Fallon’s Faking Friends. It’s a little hard to track down outside of the UK, but it’s worth the effort. She’s one of my favourite authors.



  1. Hi Jen, hope you are having a great summer – have you been Down East? I’m going to check out the sale this weekend, but probably won’t be buying as I just bought a couple of nice things online from a lovely boutique in Quebec City (they carry Saint James and some other European brands).

    You made some great purchases there. I have a similar pair of Blondo booties in suede, they are very comfy. And those sunglasses are cute! I hope that the eye situation is improving, and you at least don’t have any more discomfort.

    Enjoy the rest of the summer!


    • We will be on the coast later this year. I love Saint James tees. So smart looking. I’m glad you like your Blondos. I’ve not had a pair before. I need something waterproof as my non-waterproof Chelsea boots only lasted a season. The sunglasses were a fun splurge and they do help my eyes feel more rested when I’m outside. Enjoy the sale this weekend. Lots of temptations there and lots of nice Christmas ideas. I made myself stay on list! XO


  2. What great items from the sale. Your booties are just perfect, and I adore that leather jacket. The sunglasses are absolutely fabulous. Enjoy the Summer Jen.
