Growing up, the late summer Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was as much a part of my back-to-school routine as the trip to Target for new notebooks and pens. Given the great deals on brands we loved, my family leveraged the sale to buy a few key pieces for each of us to refresh our wardrobes for the new school year.
I, of course, took the task very seriously, ensuring that the items I selected would be versatile enough to mix and match into a variety of new looks.
It's officially that time of year again at Nordstrom, and just like those days back in grade school, the sale is packed with items that will take your wardrobe into fall, at prices that will leave extra budget for one last summer splurge.
Here are my picks for the top ten items under $100 -- from beauty to baubles and more -- from this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, taking place between now and August 3rd.
