Dive into Fall: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


Growing up for much of my childhood in Mexico, I can vividly remember we would plan our annual summer visit to the United States to coincide with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. For me, it represents the anticipation of fall being just around the corner – school starts, apples are harvested, and of course, a change of wardrobe. This year, I look forward to the start of fall shopping. There are so many incredible deals and great looks. I’m hoping to snag a pair of boots, jeans and a cape – all ideal for my San Francisco weather.

Last year, I was five months pregnant when the sale began so I didn’t buy any clothes. This year, my wardrobe definitely needs an update and I can’t wait to see what treasures I’ll find.  What are you hoping to find at the Nordstrom Sale?

Layer It: Casual Wednesdays

Layer It : Play | Sacramento Street


There are days when I definitely don’t feel like dressing up. They usually occur when it’s one of my days where I’m juggling work and baby and simply want to be comfortable. These are the days when I pull out a pair of boyfriend jeans and a striped t shirt.  Usually I tend to wear a pair of my favorite tennis shoes since we almost always go on a long walk during the day.  I know I’ll be comfortable but not completely void of style.

Style: Simple Layers

Emerson Fry | Sacramento Street Emerson Fry | Sacramento Street

It’s July and all I want to do is ditch my jeans for dresses and shorts – on some days this is possible when we aren’t fogged in or being blown away by the wind. While I still love the idea of putting on a dress and some bling, I’ve changed what I wear to align with being a mom. Jackson is often on my hip, and high-heeled shoes or tight clothes are usually found in the back of the closet. So, I went out on the hunt for key pieces that could be a) easily washable and b) still chic that I could run to a client meeting. I love this tie up dress in black linen paired with a slate sweater – both from Emerson Fry. Both are loose and comfortable and those are both essential qualities in my wardrobe these days!

Style: Dressing with Ease

Emerson Fry | Sacramento StreetEmerson Fry | Sacramento Street


For a long time, an essential part of my wardrobe has been pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe from Emerson Fry. The simplicity and great fit of each piece I have make them favorites in my wardrobe. Now that I’m a new mom, I especially like the idea of the simple fit and easy care of these items. There is always some kind of a spill or leak with a little one around and I like clothes I can wash or clean easily.

Here are some of my most recent finds from Emerson Fry. For most of you in other regions of the country, you probably wonder why I chose to get a wool coat in the summer. In San Francisco, these are some of our cooler days with the fog rolling in daily. But for the rest of you, this would make a perfect jacket for the cool fall days that are just around the corner. I’m loving the light gray jeans paired with an ivory linen t-shirt for the summer months – even if our summer isn’t ever a hot one!

Layer It: Take It Easy



It’s officially summer – the season that makes you want to take road trips, partake in long lunches outdoors and take it easy. Although it’s sometimes colder in SF, we know how to enjoy it by traveling just 10 minutes up north. I can assure you that’s what we’ll be doing the next few months to get some much needed vitamin d.
