Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Must Haves & a Giveaway!!

Nsale - Must Buys



I’m sure by now you have heard PLENTY about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! You know what it is and my favorite picks, but after yesterday’s kickoff, it’s obvious what everybody is loving! These top selling items will be the ones to go first, and it’s no wonder…fall staples on sale?! Yes please! PS Make sure to make it all the way through this post for an AMAZING giveaway!! 


1. Easy Circle Cardigan (Now: $50 // After Sale: $75): This cardigan sold out day 1 of the sale last year and it looks like it’s currently heading in that same direction as the blush pictured above is already sold out! This year it was offered in 4 colors and a gorgeous burgundy, grey and taupe are still available. I ordered this one in taupe and am so excited to get it! I heard it runs large so I ordered an xs! 


2. Leopard Scarf (Now: $12 // After Sale: $19): A $12 leopard print scarf?? Sold! Leopard is a neutral right?! I can picture this cutie with any of the tops, cardigans or jackets above and it’s lightweight enough that it will be perfect for early fall! 


3. BP Cardigan (Now: $32 // After Sale: $49): The top selling item from last year is back! This sweater is a STEAL at just $32! I bought it in 2 colors last year and wore it repeatedly, so of course I snatched it up in a few more colors this year! This sweater is the perfect length for layering and one of my favorite pieces for work in the fall and winter! 


4. Block Heel Booties (Now: $100 // After Sale: $150): The intricate detailing on these booties make them a stand out piece. These are a pair of shoes you can easily wear now and transition in to fall. I love that open toe!! 


5. Suede Moto Jacket (Now: $126 // After Sale: $188 ): This jacket was another hot selling item that they brought back this year and it’s better than ever! This gorgeous jacket comes in 3 colors and I am obsessed with the “spice” color pictured above! I don’t see this jacket being in stock for long! 


6. Suede Booties: The laser cut outs and split v side give these booties a unique spin. They come in 2 colors and have a stacked heel making them perfect for day to day wear. Pair them now with a dress and later in the fall with your favorite denim, cardi and scarf combo. 


7. Cargo Jacket (Now: $79 // After Sale: $118): Everywhere I look, I feel like I’ve seen some mention of this jacket. A cargo jacket is a fall staple for me! It’s just the right weight for wearing in the fall when it’s chilly enough to need light layers but not cold enough for a full on coat. The pockets on this one add a fun military inspired touch, but it’s still classic enough that you will wear year after year! 


8. Tory Burch Riding Boots (Now: $300 // After Sale: $500): I invested in TB riding boots last year and am SO glad that I did! Before them, I had so many pairs of cheaper riding boots that either fell apart or I couldn’t wear for long because they pinched my toes. I was looking for a great pair of boots to wear day after day that could take on the challenge of my teacher life (on my feet all day every day) and decided to make the splurge. If you wear riding boots a lot, I definitely recommend in making the investment!


9. Tory Burch Cross Body Bag (Now: $284 // After Sale: $428 ): This bag is gorgeous and I love that it comes in 3 neutral colors! The adjustable strap allows for it to be worn over the shoulder or as a cross body. 

10. AG Jeans (Now: $150 // After Sale: $225 ): These jeans will definitely be sold out before the end of the weekend! I haven’t picked these up yet, but will definitely be purchasing today. AG jeans have an amazing fit and I love that this pair have no distressing, so I can wear them to work! 


11. V-Neck Tee (Now: $16 // After Sale: $24): It’s all about the basics this year, and EVERYBODY is loving this tee!! I bought it in a few colors because a great tee is a staple in my wardrobe and hello?! $16 is a price that can’t be beat!  


12. Tall Suede Boot (Now: $150 // After Sale: $225): These boots are gorgeous and at the top of my wish list. They have the perfect stacked heel and are a gorgeous shade of brown (or should I say “golden caramel”), although they also come in black and grey. I have a similar pair of boots that I wore all last fall and winter. They are perfect to take from work to the weekend!

IT’S HERE! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access has begun! Starting today, cardholders get early access to the sale of the year…NEW fall arrivals at discounted prices! The sale opens to the public on July 21st, but if you want the hot ticket items (think Tory Burch riding boots and Rebecca Minkoff bags ON SALE), it’s important to take advantage early!!

Find out sale details and how to become a cardholder here so you can get access to all the goodies before they sell out! 


Below I am rounding up some of my favorite picks. I will do more detailed posts throughout the sale, including a review of my purchases. Because I don’t live near a Nordstrom, I expect my online order to come in a few days and can’t wait to start sharing what I got with you! To shop the below picks, just click any picture to head to the product page! I will be updating this post throughout the day as I continue to shop the sale, so make sure to check back! 


I also want to hear what you got! Please share your top sale picks below!

You’re Invited: Nordstrom Sale Rundown!

It’s that time of year again!! The most wonderful time of year…aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I look forward to this sale EVERY year! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is unlike any other! Typically, sales feature older merchandise at a marked down price, making room for fresh inventory for a new season. The Nordstrom sale does the opposite, offering NEW fall merchandise at a discounted price. When I say new, I mean fresh fall styles that haven’t hit the shelves yet. Basically you are getting the newest fall pieces at a sale price!

When is the sale? 
The sale officially opens to the public on July 21st, but you can get a sneak peek, and even start shopping early (what?!?) if you are a cardholder starting July 13th! 

Becoming a card holder is EASY! 

I know what you are thinking. Credit card?! No thanks! 

While there is a credit card option, I prefer the debit card. This is easy peasy, lemon squeezy. This basically attaches your bank information (your debit card) to Nordstrom. Meaning all you have to do is give them your routing number and account number and you get a new Nordstrom debit card! Anytime you use your Nordstrom debit card, it is directly taken out of your bank account. No interest and no debt! 

This way, you get to shop 8 days early. This is definite bonus as you get access to the sale before the public and get first pick on hot fall finds at their sale price before they sell out! 

What’s on sale?

Specifics won’t be known until the sale officially begins, but the Nordstrom Anniversary catalog gives a great sneak peek of some of the offerings! I’ve already browsed it a few times and circled some goodies I have my eye on! I love shopping for new fall pieces to add to my wardrobe, especially boots and booties!! I always find great deals on new staples for work too, because we all know one of the best parts of being a teacher is the back to school shopping! It’s a great time to stock up on fall and winter must haves for the entire family! 

Where to shop??

Obviously you can head to your nearest Nordstrom to shop the sale, but I prefer shopping online from the comfort of my own home! I also live 3 hours from the nearest Nordstom…soooo there’s that! Online shopping is easy and with free returns and exchanges the process of finding those must have pieces is effortless! Throughout the sale (July 13th – August 6th), I will have posts featuring my sale favorites on the blog! I plan on sharing my top sale picks, shoe favorites, styling tips, teacher faves and more! If there is something you want to see let me know! 

My first post will be live shortly after the sale opens, so make sure to stop by and share what you are buying!
