While I am not ready for summer to end just yet, the sale of the year is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 20th). I headed into the store yesterday for a sneak peek at the entire sale. Y’all it is goood this year. The list is extensive, but if you are anything like me, I love an excuse for a great deal on something I would be purchasing for the season anyways.
If you are not familiar with the sale, here’s the scoop: Nordstrom selects all new arrivals for the upcoming season and discounts them for a limited amount of time. With over 100 pages of product, the sale can get super overwhelming to browse. In order to stay on track, I have created a shopping strategy so I end up buying things I really love and/or need.
I think the best deal during the Nordstrom sale are quality sweaters. VINCE is always my go-to for super soft sweaters and this year they have a great selection. This GREY CASHMERE is a forever classic. I also bought THIS BLACK CASHMERE CARDIGAN and THIS oversized camel pullover.
I will be breaking down my favorite dresses from the sale in more detail later today, but here are a few of my favorites. THIS REBECCA TAYLOR DRESS is my absolute favorite. I love stocking up on dresses during the sale since I can wear most of them now and in the Fall with booties. This chic shirtdress, this one, this one and this one are all in my cart.
If there is one thing to stock up on during the sale it is denim. I always buy one or two pairs this time of year that I can wear throughout the year. I picked up the MOTHER Denim CROPPED FLARES and I am obsessed. FRAME Le Skinny de Jeanne, Citizen of Humanity Rocket High Rise and J.Brand Maria are a few of my favorite denim styles I currently have in my closet!
This is the perfect time to stock up on beauty products because they rarely go on sale! I recently bought the DERMAFLASH 2.0 and I am obsessed. The GloPro is currently in my cart. It is $100 off, which is a total steal. I will be stocking up on THESE DIPTYQUE CANDLE SETS. They are perfect for gifts! I will also be stocking up on my favorite all natural beauty favorites. The Tata Harper set is definitely the best deal of the sale!
If there is one pair of boots I would buy, it would be these TAN SUEDE BOOTS (under $200!). I have had THIS PAIR for two years now and they were definitely my most worn item in my closet all Fall and Winter. I love the subtle heel on THIS PAIR, too! Another splurge-worthy item would be these MULES because they are perfect for dresses, jeans and everything in between. I got them yesterday and honestly can’t get enough! It is hard to think about winter boots when it’s 100º, but I have had my eye on THESE BOOTS for the last two seasons. These SLIP ONS are great for traveling. I have a similar pair from last season that are in heavy rotation. Another item that is a great sale purchase is sneakers. THESE NIKES are adorable too!
ACTIVE & SLEEPWEAR
Something I tend to overlook during the sale is activewear and sleepwear. These HANKY PANKYS never go on sale, so it is the perfect time to stock up! Also, these PJ’S are too cute! Love this cozy cardigan that is perfect for lounging and these Zella leggings. I actually think these might be the first things to sell out. If there is one thing I wish I bought yesterday that is currently in my cart, it’s this Patagonia Nano Puff that is perfect for cool weather or layered under another coat for the winter.
