I think this may be one of my favorite style boards I have put together recently.  I modeled it after a blogger I saw recently that wore camo paired with white and grey.  I was just wondering if camo was still something that was on-trend - and I think it is.  The big Nordstrom Anniversary sale has a few camo pieces - like this bomber jacket and this shirt jacket.  This outfit is pretty easy to put together with some basic staples - like white jeans (these are only $10) and a grey tee. 

#NSALE HITS & MISSES
As far as the #nsale, it's been like Christmas at my house each day.  I feel for my UPS guy though - as I sort through everything that I want to keep and return.  My door is piled with boxes.  For some reason, Nordstrom tends to send everything from different locations.  So, each item gets its own box. And, since most of the good stuff sells out quickly - I typically order a couple of sizes - so it is a little crazy at my house lately.

As far as what I have liked and those things I wished I hadn't ordered.  Here are a few of my hits and misses.  These boots were a definite HIT.  This was a MISS - I loved the color - but the fit was off for me.  Another hit was this sweater - it is a great price and will be perfect for fall. I am on the fence about this sweater.  I love the look of it - but the dolman sleeves (that attach at the waist, which the online pictures do not show) are kind of awkward.  Oh, and one other miss was these boots.  I have looked at them for the past two years - and really think they are cute - but I cannot pull them off.  I felt like I should audition for the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders in them.

#NSALE TOP 10 PICKS
1. Sweater: BP  // 2. Scarf: BP  // 3. Cardigan: BP
4. Bootie: Treasure & Bond  // 5. Flats: Halogen // 6. Watch: Skagen
7. Tote: BP // 8. Jeans: Wit & Wisdom
9. Make Up: MAC // 10. Earrings: Kendra Scott

I have picked out some pieces that would be perfect for fall that are all under $100 from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I have done some shopping and picked up these boots, this jacket, and this basic tee, which I stock up on each year during the sale.  Also, these are not part of the #nsale; however, if you love the way the Christian Louboutin pumps look - but can't spend your mortgage payment on buying them - I found a pair of very similar pumps for a lot less.
