The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is fast approaching, and catalogs with a sneak peek of what’s to come have already hit the mailboxes. This is by far the best sale of the year for this retailer. Nordstrom Rewards Members are able to preview and purchase items on July 10, eight days before the sale opens to the general public on July 18. Not a member? (Click here for details on how to become one.) I love this perk, as it gives me the chance to snag items from my fall wish-list in my sizes ahead of the pack.

Every July, I begin to plan my fall wardrobe around what I have purchased already (or have my eye on) and tuck my treasures away until the weather is right. Perhaps some of you think this may be a tad early for thinking about fall—after all, aren’t we just mid barbeque season? But if you and I are like-minded at all, you have been checking out the fabulousness from the runways for the fall 2014 season for at least the past month now. I like having something to look forward to, after all, and it doesn’t take away from the current fun of sundresses and espadrilles (or Birkenstocks—see my July column).

As for me, a few of my favorites include the Trina Turk Scarlett Plaid Coat and the Vince Two Tone Coat—which as a statement coat is on the top of my list—the rag & bone black suede bootie, the layered looks on page 35, and the Vince Ombré Sweater. If you haven’t got your hands on a catalog, here is the link to viewing it online, so you can shop fall while you sit under a beach umbrella. Cheers!
