Happy Friday Friend! Welcome to my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide!! I’m sure by now you know that tomorrow is Influencer Day for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is my day to shop. So today I’m bringing you my complete guide to the #NSale. That includes tips + tricks to shopping the sale, the items + I’m loving, purchasing or already have + full descriptions of why.
My last years picks are here if you’re curious lol. To be honest, I am disappointed in Nordstrom for the structure of the sale this year. I don’t think you have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to stop a sale early ya know? I feel it was better in years past when cardholders no matter the status could shop for a week or so, let them restock items + then open the sale to the public. ✨ DO NOT OPEN A CREDIT CARD TO HAVE ACCESS TO THIS SALE!! IT IS NOT WORTH IT!! ✨ At the end of the day it is just a sale, they are just items ya know?
✨ THE 411 + DATES ✨
When shopping the sale instead of adding everything that peaked my interest in my cart I challenged myself to only add things that will add to my wardrobe that I don’t already have, that are neutrals, will last me more than one season, and I can make at least 3 outfits out of each item.
With the uncertainty of how the fall and winter are going to be like, I wanted warm, comfy and cute pieces that I can either feel put together while staying home, or feeling put together actually going out. As much as the good deals are, I really concentrated on pieces that I don’t already have, not adding another item of something I already have just because the price was good.
I’m not sure if its a good thing or not, but a lot of the items that I liked I already have and love so I decided to break this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide into 3 parts. I will say that my tried and true picks are on the more expensive side. However, this is the time I buy them because they are discounted and I know they will last a long time, so to me its worth it [sorry babe lol].
- My tried and true picks- Products I already purchased, LOVE + recommend
- In my cart- Items I am purchasing
- On my wish list- Items I’m on the fence about
Before I go into my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide here are some tips + tricks for shopping the sale that I’ve learned over the years of shopping it:
- First of all, please know that YOU DO NOT need to buy anything from the sale + you DO NOT have to feel shame or anything like that. At the end of the day its just a sale, just stuff.
- Because with Nordstrom its always free shipping and free returns, make multiple purchases because things will sell out fast.
- If something you want is sold out, don’t get discouraged! Keep checking back because they do restock items and you can snag it then. Also, try calling your local store because they can hunt items down the website says it’s out of stock. I’ve personally done this a couple times.
- Fall/winter and basic pieces will sell out fast. So think sweaters, cardigans, leggings, designer denim and booties- just to name a few.
- Items that bloggers/influencer show will also sell out fast as well.
✨ MY TRIED + TRUE PICKS ✨
#1. Barefoot Dreams Blanket – [Sale Price: $119.90 // After Sale: $180]: Again, I know its crazy to spend over $100 on a blanket [again, sorry babe lol] but it really is worth it! It is so soft and warm! The quality is amazing as well. I wash mine every week, had it for over a year and it still looks brand new. The fibers/fabric is something special because its unlike any other blanket I’ve had or felt. It’s the best to either cuddle up with on the couch or go to sleep with. I take it everywhere when I travel. Highly recommend!
#2. BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket– [Sale Price: $129.90 // After Sale: $188]: I LOVE this jacket and I get compliments every time I wear it. You can dress it up and wear it with a dress and heels or dress it down with a tee, a pair of jeans and sneakers. Its super versatile and the quality is amazing. I’ve had mine for years and it still looks brand new.
#3. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – [Sale Price: $64.90 // After Sale: $98]: I really like these. I do recommend sizing up a size from your normal though became they suck you in so they are a bit snug [as they should be]. They can be dressed up with sweaters and booties or dressed down with a long white long sleeve tee, a denim jacket and cute sneakers. I wear mine with sweaters layered onto of a long white tee with my mini uggs. I feel like it looks cute and the two most important parts: 1. I’m warm and 2. its comfortable.
#4. FP Oversized Cozy Sweater – [Sale Price: $79.90 // After Sale: $128]: This year’s is a little different from the one I have but the principal is the same. I actually like this year’s version of the neck better because I don’t really like anything around my neck. But they both are super comfy, oversized + can be worn so many different ways that the price per wear is definitely worth the purchase!
#5. Barefoot Dreams Socks – [Sale Price: $19.90 // After Sale: $30]: These socks are worth EVERY PENNY! Its like a cloud is wrapped around your feet! I love these socks! They are so soft and warm. They wash well and still look brand new. I like that they are neutral colors so you can pair them with outfits and still feel and look put together.
#6. Riki Loves Riki Mirror – [Sale Price: $150 // After Sale: $230]: Okay, I know this mirror is crazy expensive but it really is worth it. Its a really nice size mirror with ridiculously bright lights that you can adjust. It comes with a stand, magnetic phone holder that you can connect with blue tooth for amazing selfies and handsfree videos. As well as it also comes with a magnetic magnified mirror. It also is super light so its nice for traveling or moving it wherever you need it.
✨ WHATS IN MY CART ✨
[Can we tell I’m a neutrals girls ha!]
#1. Wayf Off the Shoulder Sweater [Sale Price: $49.99 // After Sale: $78]: I love me an off the shoulder sweater! I love how cozy + chic they are. This one looks so comfy + I can see myself wearing it on the beach on chilly nights with shorts!
#2. Barefoot Dreams Cozy Socks [Sale Price: $19.90 // After Sale: $30]: This is a repurchase but I love these socks + you can’t beat the price!
#3. Wit + Wisdom Denim [Sale Price: $49.99 // After Sale: $78]: I know I know, I need another pair of denim like a hole in the head. But I really don’t have any without any distressing + I do love this brand.
#4. Palm Tree Towel [Sale Price: 22.99 // After Sale: $35]: When you read this, the towel is already sold out. However, Nordstrom does restock pretty well so I’m praying that it comes back!
#5. Zella Leggings [Sale Price: $38.90 // After Sale: $59]: I’m so excited for these leggings! I have heard nothing but good things about them + I am in desperate need for some new black leggings. The pocket is the icing on the cake!
#6. Barefoot Dreams Ankle Socks [Sale Price: $16.90 // After Sale: $25]: I love the longer version of these so I’m excited to try these. When I wear
✨ ON MY WISH LIST ✨
#1. REBECCA MINKOFF Edie Chevron Quilted Tote [Sale Price: $285.99 // After Sale: $429]: When I first saw this bag I thought it was YSL, but not so much ha! So I think this is a great similar option if you’re looking for a less expensive option. It is a great size so its perfect for a work tote, diaper bag, an everyday bag. It’s just great ha!
#2. BÉIS The Backpack [Sale Price: 53.99 // After Sale: $78]: I have the matching weekender bag in black + I think I’m going to grab this backpack but in black so it matches. I think its going to be great for traveling, carrying around all my work stuff, anything really.
#3. FREE PEOPLE Intimately FP Adella Frilled Chemise [Sale Price: $54.90 // After Sale: $88] : I have the bralette version + “tank top” version. The dress is perfect for throwing on during the summer + early fall months. And the color is perfect for spring, summer + transitioning into fall.
#4. CULT GAIA Eos Beaded Acrylic Box Clutch [Sale Price: $245.99 // After Sale: $328]: I know I know this is a crazy amount of money for a clutch bag. BUT it is neutral so you can wear it with so many looks, all year round. I also think its so pretty so I’d use it as piece of decor as well so you get multiple uses out of it.
#5. BTB LOS ANGELES Sunday Morning Straw Tote [Sale Price: $99.99 // After Sale: $168]: As I was browsing the pages of #Nsale items this bag caught my eye. I think its so cute for the beach but also for grabbing lunch too. It’s the perfect summer bag!
Wow that was a lot ha! If you’re still with me, you are a true rock star!
