Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Today’s the day! Y’all, I’ve been excited about this sale for the last full week and now it’s finally here. If you’re a cardholder you have Early Access to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beginning 3 AM EST! The sale will open to the public on July 20th at 3 AM EST.

To refresh, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the biggest sale of the year because it’s all brand new fall merchandise, marked down for a limited time, when the sale is over the prices go back up to full price! It’s such a great time to do your fall shopping, stock your closet on basics like tees, sweaters, leggings, beauty items, and bras. It’s also a great time to splurge on any higher priced items you’ve been wanting like handbags, watches, jewelry, and shoes.

I’m headed into my local store this morning so I’ll have more information on fit and quality later this afternoon but there are so many great options I wanted to get you guys a quick overview of the things I have my eye on right now and things I think will sell out quickly. I’ll be updating this post later in the day with the try on session sharing all my in-store finds so be sure to bookmark this page and check back throughout the day! If you follow my Instagram Stories, you’ll likely see the try on session first over there.

My biggest tip for the sale is to SHOP ONLINE! The store will not stock every item of the sale and shipping is always free. It’s such a great thing to shop in your jammies with a cup of coffee in hand. You can even shop and have the items shipped to the store, try on in the store and return what doesn’t work right there. You can also do curbside pick up for the items that your store has in stock so you can still shop your store’s stock without stepping foot in the store, so so convenient!

Now for my picks! My style is very casual – jeans and a tee is my usual momiform for running around town. I like to think of myself as a “real” person with a very average body type ( for reference I’m 5’3 about 140. I usually wear a S-M, or 6-8).

Later this afternoon I’ll share my favorite in these other categories: Men’s, Kids, Home, and Under $50!  I’ll be able to break down the sale even further and I’ll be sharing the best basics, tops, denim, outerwear, accessories, and beauty. As well as share some outfit ideas in the next few days!

Since this is such a popular sale, there are items that sell out really fast so I wanted to share a few of those items that I’m ordering RIGHT now so you can snag them before they’re gone.

My Must Haves

This basic tee on $12 (will sell out in sizes and colors)
These AG Jeans (I got these last year and they were my best purchase of the sale. Love the raw hem. They’ll sell out in some sizes)
These Madewell Mules (a splurge for me but I know I will wear them all fall, winter, into spring. I’m sizing up a half size.)
Utility Jacket under $50 (I get a utility jacket every year. I love this one! Grabbing a small)
Waffle Cardigan (Grabbing a small in this)
Fleece Pullover (I didn’t get this last year and wish I had – amazing reviews and so cozy. Definitely will sell out)
Barefoot Dreams Cardigans (Marked way down and easily sell out)
Kut from Kloth Jeans (a favorite brand for me, less than $60 – TTS)
Knit Blazer (such a steal for just $40 – runs big, size down)

Home Picks

I think this is probably my favorite year for the home category of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love the selection of affordable pillows, the throws are gorgeous, and the rug options are great! I pulled a few of the things I have my eye on but I encourage you to check out all of the items because there are so many good things, especially if you are looking for affordable, quality home items.

The pillows | I am really loving this leather pillow. It comes with a down insert and is perfect for fall. The warm tones are a perfect compliment to the usual blues and whites I go with. I also love the batik oblong pillow, perfect for a bed or a chair and the indigo pillow with fringe is my fav! I’m getting two for my bed.

The throws | I always grab a couple of throws for fall/winter because everyone always wants one to snuggle up with when we’re on the couch. I am obsessing over the chunky knit throw. It’s $65 which seems steam but is a major steal as it’s a dupe for the more expensive chunky knit throws that typically sell for $100-$200. I also am seriously considering the Barefoot Dreams blanket. I’m definitely grabbing the cardigan this year – everyone raves about how comfy it is and that it washes well so will last forever. Is there anything better than a sweater in blanket form?

This Dash and Albert rug is one I’ve had my eye on for awhile. I’ve shared it previously on Good Stuff Saturday. I just love it and want the runner so badly for my kitchen. It’s only $88, an absolute steal for a Dash & Albert beauty!

Art Prints | MAJOR DEAL ON WALL ART FRIENDS! I shared this set of DENY designs art prints last year and they were really popular. This year there are even more affordable wall art options. I’m grabbing this print in the 16×20 size for less than $20 (hint – that is a serious score!) Pair this print with some of my freebie beach prints for a beautiful gallery wall.
