It’s finally here again – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! A very exciting time the world of style bloggers and Instagrammers, not to mention pretty much anyone who loves to shop! We were away on our summer vacation when the sale hit last year, so I missed out on almost all of the fun. But this year I’m ready!
The main thing I love about this sale (as opposed to most others) is that it isn’t an end of season sale to clear out any lingering summer stock. Rather it’s a preview of everything that’s coming next season! That’s right – it’s all brand new Fall merchandise. After the sale finishes, everything will go back up to full price.
And it’s not only clothes, shoes and handbags. You can also find select beauty and home items at heavily discounted prices.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – all the details
When does the sale start?
The sale officially opens to the public on July 19th… but early access starts TODAY!
You can get yourself early access simply by becoming a Nordstrom Cardholder. If you want to take full advantage of the sale, I’d definitely recommend doing this, because the most popular items tend to sell out very quickly (as I learned the hard way last year!).
What are the best things to buy?
Personally I think that it’s a great time to stock up on some quality Autumn staples like cardigans, sweaters, t-shirts and jeans. I know that I also won’t be able to resist picking up some fun booties, even though it’ll be a while until I can wear them!
I’ve spent some time scouring the sale today, and here are my top picks by category (a few of these may or may not have found their way into my shopping cart, hee hee):
Cardigans & Sweaters
T-Shirts & Tops
Shoes & Boots
