As of today the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (aka #NSALE) is officially open to everyone through August 7! Unlike the end-of-season sale, every single item in the Anniversary Sale is brand new then bumps back up to regular price starting August 8! If you’re a lucky card holder and had access to the sale early, I hope you scored some insane deals. For the rest of us, it’s finally our time to shine (& save!) Woohoo!
My biggest piece of advice for tackling the Anniversary Sale is to make a list of things that you actually need for fall— Maybe a pair of over-the-knee boots that you passed up last winter? A classic Camel coat, some new Hanky Panky’s, or a re-stock of your best beauty essentials? Next up, make a realistic budget for a few can’t live without “wants.” We all work hard and while I’m living on a budget with the best of them, it’s important to treat yourself in moderation and now is the ideal time! If you see something you really want or need, don’t hesitate to get it. A lot of styles were already swept up during the pre-sale and now that the sale is open to everyone items are going fast! Nordstrom has incredible customer service and free shipping + free returns so buy now while you have the chance and re-assess once your favorites arrive at your door!
Now that the biz is situated, let’s get shopping!
With a million and one justifiable things, the sale can be a bit overwhelming, especially in a summer-state-of-mind. I stared at the screen for a good 5 minutes before figuring out how we should break this down, and I’m going at it head on starting with my favorites!
Using all of my self control, I kept this list to a minimum with practical pieces I would get the most use out of: a new pair of boots for fall (only $86!), Illesteva Sunnies for a steal, a new set of Hanky Pankys, a neutral patterned pair of Nikes, and of course my go-to Fresh skin care products!
To help us all from going overboard and finding what we specifically want or need I’ve broken the rest of the anniversary sale down by category:
Regardless of which city you live in, we all need a reliable pair of jeans, especially for the upcoming fall months. I probably have at least 10 pairs myself, and at the end of the day can always rely on a classic medium wash all year round.
Time to treat yourself! I’m not gonna lie I was a bit surprised to see the Stuart Weitzman boots included in this sale! I lived in them last fall and know they’ll be big again this year. I’d definitely invest in a pair, or their bargain lookalikes before prices go back up!
From bags to bling, I passed up most fading trends and stuck with timeless essentials that will stick with you for seasons to come.
With temperatures peaking the last thing I want to think about is putting on a coat but think cold thoughts, chai lattes, thanksgiving dinner, and which beauty you want to be bundled up in!
Nothing against diamonds but dresses are a girl’s best friend. Snag this $48 off-the-shoulder to wear through the remainder of summer and transition into fall with any one of these staples! (My top pick is this $58 Suede mini! Definitely treating myself before prices jump back up!)
I kept this list to a minimum to focus on the essentials, but included a few basics if you want to get ahead of the game and prep for fall.
Anyone else on a workout kick? I just treated myself to a new yoga outfit and am taking advantage of these $70 Nikes— Definitely an investment for all seasons.
Don’t even get my started on home decor. I had a field day going through the options and found some amazing deals!
Last but not least beauty, probably the best part of this entire sale. Stock up on your essentials and take advantage of the top brand sets during the limited seasonal deal!
