How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hey Pals! Tomorrow begins early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & I wanted to give you all a run down on how to make the most of it!

First of all, if you're new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it's basically better than Christmas. They release a whooooole bunch of new arrivals and put them on major sale! So this isn't an end-of-the-season let's get rid of what didn't sell type of sale. They put up BRAND NEW pieces marked down for a short while & then when the sale ends the prices go up to normal retail. This is 100% my favorite time to shop & I literally schedule my "me" budget around it.

So here's how to prep:

Follow along with my Instagram Stories for a sneak peek at the best sale items! Tonight I'll be at my local Nordstrom store for an "influencer only" sale preview event & will be documenting everything I'm able to. This will give you a heads up on what will be available during the sale, and I'll make sure to take note of what items are to die for in person! Exclusive access to sale items before everyone else... you can't beat that!

Visit the blog again tomorrow & I'll have all of my picks sorted out for you to take a look at! There are literally thousands of items that go on sale, so I'll do the hard work & dig through for the great stuff. And if you have requests for what type of items you want to see on my round up, shoot me an email or DM me on Instagram!

Get an idea of what staple items you're in need of. Dresses, shoes, handbags, beauty items, baby things... it's all going to be on sale and it's SO OVERWHELMING. Just have an idea of a couple things you're ready to pull the trigger on. I'm in the market for an everyday handbag so I'll keep my eyes on those for sure! Do you need some new boots for fall? Or is your closet missing a dress or two? Make a mental (or physical) list to prevent yourself from going overboard... it's easy to do my friends.

Shop EARLY if you can. If you have a Nordy's card- use it. And if you don't, you can apply & get your card right away HERE! I can tell you from experience how lame it is seeing everything fully in stock online during early access & then completely sold out when it was open to the public! I know getting a Nordstrom card isn't for everyone, but be prepared to have things a little picked over once the sale opens to the public.

The top in these photos was one of my FAVORITE purchases from the last anniversary sale & I totally recommend it to everyone! If you're between sizes, size down (I'm wearing a small here). Probably my favorite thing about this sale is that the price point is brought down to where there's a little something for everyone. I'm not really a designer girl... I have the occasional designer bag I got on sale or thrifted, but for the most part I like to keep my clothes on the affordable side. There are SO MANY cute under $30 top, under $100 shoes, under $200 handbags, etc. and it makes my heart happy so I have to share. This particular top was around $25 and is amazing quality!

p.s. this is 100% not sponsored, I just feel very passionately about a good sale!
