It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Okay, maybe it’s not the holidays but I’m definitely getting that Christmas in July feeling because today marks the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I should clarify, it’s the first day of “Early Access” to the sale for those with the Nordstrom credit or debit card. If you’ve never shopped this sale before — here’s the rundown.
WHAT IS IT?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the biggest sale of the year for our most beloved department store.
WHAT’S THE BIG “DEAL”?
I’m so glad you asked! Unlike most sales throughout the year, the #Nsale features brand NEW fall items for up to 40% off. Let me repeat that. Up to 40% off on brands like Stuart Weitzman, Vince, Rag & Bone, Theory, and more!
WHEN CAN I SHOP?
Early Access: July 13 – 20
Public Access: July 21 – August 5
HOW DO I GET EARLY ACCESS?
Sign up for a Nordstrom credit or debit card! I have the debit card which still allows me to earn points, etc. Pro tip: You don’t have to use the credit for purchasing during the sale, you just need it to verify your early access.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO BUY?
Hi. 🙂 I’m here to help.
Let’s start with the basics. The Nordstrom Sale is the perfect time to stock up on fall and winter essentials. Outerwear, boots, denim, sweaters, and of course, designer pieces for far less! I’ll have several posts following this initial breakdown but for now, let’s focus on ensuring you grab the basics before it’s too late!
This is my favorite category to shop during the Nordstrom sale! In San Francisco, you always need a jacket, therefore, you can never have too many. What’s a proper wardrobe without a chic leather jacket to throw on for date night? And how cozy does this wrap look for running around town? If you’re looking for a trench at a reasonable price, I’m loving this neutral option. And for my ladies on the east coast, this down coat is so cute for the winter months.
Since this sale is focused on fall items, you can bet your bottom dollar (That might be all I have after this sale, Le sigh.) that you’ll save a few on the hottest boot trends of the season. And this year, it’s not different than the last – the over-the-knee style is here to stay. The most popular being these Stuart Weitzman boots for $300 off! If you don’t want to dig that deep into your wallet, this pair is the perfect option on sale for just $150. If you’re thinking pink like me, this pair, this pair, and this pair are so pretty!
Stocking up on designer jeans is always a good idea during the Anniversary Sale. Brands like Joe’s, AG, and Paige are a part of the discounts. I’m also loving the raw hem so naturally am gravitating towards this pair.
SWEATERS + TOPS
For me, cardigans and wraps are an essential park of my wardrobe no matter the season and I’m happy to say there are so many options on sale right now. I could live in this long knit or this cashmere cardigan. This merino wool cardigan is perfect year round along with this light-weight cashmere wrap for under $100! More sweaters and tops I’m loving include this plaid OTS top, this bell sleeve sweater, and this everyday sweater.
Let’s be honest, you can never have too many workout leggings. I own these Nike ones and love them! Very flattering and so comfortable. This hoodie and this poncho are the perfect athleisure (a.k.a. San Francisco uniform) looks!
