I know I know….what could hygge and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale have in common? Well let me explain…My sister and I and then later my daughter and I have anxiously awaited the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year for a long time. It happens during the month of July and for years we spent two glorious months every Summer in California. So right there you know it’s tied to wonderful emotions and memories. We rented a small beach house that was pretty bare bones, but I would send a box to arrive the same day we did from Connecticut with all the things we couldn’t live without for the summer. Then of course we would fill in with things like candles and cozy pillows and throws that we used all summer. We surfed all day and had tacos from Aurora’s for dinner way too many times to count. We played board games, watched the sunset over Catalina and circled around the fire pit every night after a swim. Hygge (pronounced Hoo-gah) is described as “cozy togetherness.” Our summers in California were all about being cozy in our little cottage by the ocean. Today at Nordstrom I was feeling nostalgic about shopping the Nordstrom sale in California even though I was in New York. They had so many lovely things to create that hygee feeling in your home.
Madeline and I both have the Barefoot Dreams Cozychic light Coastal Cardigan. it’s perfect to wrap up in on a chilly evening on the coast and all winter long by the fire. We love these Turkish Towels. And can you ever have too many cozy throws and pillows? A macrame wall hanging adds instant warmth to a room and a bit of that 70’s vibe. Extra seating like this stool/poof is always nice to have. We love the earthy scent of Tobacco and Patchouli and the concrete candles from Paddywax.
Today starts the first day of Early Access for cardholders (July 13th -20th) and is open to everyone July 21st – August 6th.
As you can see, Hygge is not just for winter. Hope you are having a great summer! Stay cozy! xo annie
