Blue Peplum Two Ways & 5 Tips for Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Happy Monday loves! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was super low key, which was SO nice after being out of town the weekend before! We had dinner with great friends, went to church, ran some errands, went on a walk and spent lots of time playing outside with the girls. 

I posted two different ways to style this blue ruffle peplum top {affiliate links used in this post} on Instagram and wanted to share the looks here on the blog. It is also currently 30% off with the code YESPLEASE! Yay! 

I love finding new ways to stretch staples in my closet and transform them with different accessories/layers. The first look is more of a summer look and the second is styled for fall transition! In South Florida the seasons are more like one hot summer, so fall transition is pretty much what I do all winter long. I do have a few trips scheduled to cooler locations this year and I am excited to get to wear some fun fall pieces!

Speaking of fall transition, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! This Nordstrom Anniversary sale has been one of my favorite sales for years! It is a time when Nordstrom puts their new fall merchandise on sale, with some deep discounts! I have been fashion blogging for only a few weeks now but I am excited to share my tips with you that I have been using  to master this sale for a while now! 

This year the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access sale starts on Thursday, July 13th at 12:01am Pacific Time. This sale is available to Nordstrom Card holders only. Last year I got up early in the morning to shop the Early Access and was able to snag everything on my wish list, but items sell out SOO quickly! 

On July 20th the sale opens to the public and ends on August 6th. Prices go up on August 7th. I found that some items are restocked for the public sale, so if you miss something, this might be a great time to try and find it! 

So here are 5 of my tips for shopping the sale like a pro

1 - Having the Nordstrom card is so key! This gives you access to the early sale along with a lot of other benefits. I have no other store credit cards, but Nordstrom's card. Kris and I are really careful planners when it comes to finances and I try to stick to a budget pretty closely, so having so many credit cards would be dangerous for my shopping desires LOL! 

2 - I plan to shop the sale online and select store pick up for the items that are in stock at my local Nordstrom. That way I won't miss out on them if I am late to the with 2 kids always brings something unplanned...amiright?! I will go to the store to pick them up and then try on other pieces as well to purchase!

I will be doing fitting room sessions for Instagram so you can see what some of these items look like in person! 

3 - Take a peak at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog and see if there is anything that is a "must have" for you! This is a fun process to preview some items and get an idea for what is coming. 

4 - Take an inventory of your closet to see what you have/need for fall! There is so much on sale that it can be a bit overwhelming. Go into the sale with a strategy! Don't forget about their beauty items too - SO many great things on sale! One benefit to shopping at Nordstrom is that they have a very generous and flexible return policy which always gives me comfort! 

5 - If you are not interested in the Nordstrom card, you can still enroll in the rewards program with your phone number so you can start earning Nordstrom note rewards towards future purchases! 

I will have specific posts ready for you all through out the sale, with the first one going up between 6 and 7am on Thursday so you can shop early! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me or DM me on Instagram! I'd love to help! 

Thank you SO much for your sweet comments! I love reading them and they truly make my day! xoxo
