What I Bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Public Access sale is here!! Here are some of the items that I purchased and loved! I also included dupes for items that are not available in the sale any more! 

I wore my true size medium in both the cardigan and the top! These Madewell jeans are the old version, and the new version of these jeans sold out almost immediately!  I found a dupe for them here!

These adorable booties run TTS and go with everything! I am wearing them in the olive suede color but they come in several colors!

This tee is sold out in the stripe, but comes in several other colors! Jeans are not from the Nordstrom Sale but I would also go with your normal size! I linked a dupe for these shoes as well :)

One of my favorite pairs of pants hasn't been restocked from the sale yet so I linked some similar items!!
Since this hat sold so quickly, I found a dupe for it that is SO affordable! And this bag is part of the sale and I love it! It comes with a cute pouch inside - 2 bags in one!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably my favorite sale of the year next to Black Friday, or as my husband likes to call it, my Superbowl! What I love about it is that you have access to new fall arrivals that are offered at sale prices before they go to their regular price. This year we have some trips planned to colder destinations so I will actually have use for some cooler weather layers!

I got the preview catalog before we left for Alaska and had so much fun going through it (although this is just a tiny snippet of whats to come...the catalog pales in comparison to the sale every year)! But I know it gets reeeallly old quickly with everyone talking about it for an entire month. So I decided to wait to start talking about the sale until today! 

The sale can feel overwhelming with all of the hype and large amount of items offered, so I wanted to break down the sale basics if you haven't heard of it before, share my shopping plan and how I am going to cover the sale! I want to be the best resource for you! 


What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Anniversary sale offers brand new fall arrivals on sale for great prices before they go back to their normal prices for the season. The sale stretches across many departments such as mens, home and kids! I often buy Christmas gifts, teachers gifts and do back to school shopping for my girls!
 So many great brands like Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, Barefoot Dreams, Vince Camuto and Spanx go on sale. But because the sale is so popular things literally fly off the shelves! There are sometimes restocks, but not always. 

When does the sale start?
The key dates for the anniversary sale are as follows: 
  • July 12th at 12:01am Pacific - Early Access for Nordstrom card holders 
  • July 20th at 12:01am Pacific - Public sale begins 
  • August 5th - Sale ends and prices go up

What is your plan for shopping the sale?
I've been shopping the Nsale for years and this is my second year covering it as a blogger! I always set my alarm and wake up the minute the sale goes live at 12:01 am pacific and start going through all of the goodness! I typically am shopping for the most affordable basics (booties, boots, cardigans, tees, jeans), event dresses, and athleisure! This year I am also shopping for home decor, kids and mens. I've been saving for this sale for a while, ha!

How will you share the sale?
So on July 12th, first thing in the morning, I will have a round up of my favorite items and those that I think will sell out quickly on the blog. I will also share this on my insta stories with direct swipe up links. I often make multiple purchases since shipping is free to be sure items don't sell out! If an item is available for in store pick up I will normally chose that as well! 

I am heading to the store to do a try on session as well on the 12th to discuss sizing! The girls are coming with me which should be interesting!

 Although I love the Nordstrom sale, it won't be the only thing I share for the next 4 weeks. But some posts to look for from me in the next few weeks are: 
  • specific posts based on department and price point 
  • fall wedding outfit ideas 
  • restocks during the public sale 
  • affordable work wear basics 
  • early Christmas gift ideas and teacher gift ideas 
  • styling and outfit ideas for family photos

Do you have any favorites from the Nordstrom Sale Catalog?
Yes! Here are some of my favorites so far!

I hope you have fun shopping the Nordstrom sale! Before you shop, I recommend taking an inventory of your fall clothes and make a list of what you are looking for! Also, set a budget - it can be SO easy to overspend and knowing how much you want to spend is really helpful! 

Check back here on the 12th to see my sale picks! Please feel free to email me or DM me on Instagram if you have any questions or want me to find specific items for you! Happy shopping! :)
