It's that time of year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is easily the store's best sale all year long, with major price cuts storewide. What makes this sale extra special is that all of the sale items are brand new arrivals. Pretty crazy, right? Since the sale hits at the end of summer, I always use it as a chance to kickstart my fall wardrobe. 

The sale's early access for cardholders started late last week, so I shopped the sale and rounded up some of my very favorite style steals under $100. If you aren't a Nordstrom cardholder, the sale will become available to you on July 22. However, I'd definitely recommend becoming a cardholder. Nordstrom has a great rewards program and even offers a debit card option, so you never have to worry about your shopping getting you into trouble. 

Some things that I've already picked up are this affordable and chic bag by Sole Society and these gold hoop earrings. Both of these accessories go with everything and they were at the perfect price. You can shop them below, as well as some other picks.

Drama Earrings

Last year statement necklaces were the accessory that was the "must have" item to glam up your outfits, and this year it's all about statement earrings. As you are preparing for all of the parties this holiday season, think about adding a wow factor to your outfits with earrings.

They don't even have to be very expensive. One of my favorite places to shop jewelry trends is Forever 21. You don't have to feel guilty about following accessory trends with prices like $3.80 for a pair of awesome earrings. They have 600 pairs of earrings to choose from right now, so you're bound to find something to match your outfit.

I actually just popped my head into the store the other day and walked out with the beautiful earrings below. $15.00 was my grand total for accessories that I plan to get great use out of. Lately, I've really been loving big earrings with my hair in a bun, but regardless of the hairstyle these earrings look great every time.
