Hey, guys! It’s been a minute since I have written on the blog! I have had so much going on this year and needed to take a break. But, I couldn’t let this major sale go by without a dedicated blog post for you to reference! So, let’s get into it!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens once a year and I love it because a lot of great items go on sale that are staples throughout the year, like jeans, boots, bags, coats, and tons of beauty products! As we all know, Nordstrom carries some high-end brands and they can be a bit pricey. So, right now is a great time to grab some things you might not normally splurge on. I love to buy quality pieces that last a long time, and this sale always delivers that! That being said, please don’t feel that you have to over-spend or get all of these pieces or you won’t feel trendy for the fall or anything like that! There will be a lot more sales happening in the future. Only buy what speaks to you and feels right. No one needs to go broke over the Nordstrom Sale!
The sale dates are listed below. Cardholders can shop the sale first. Cardholers are broken down into categories based upon how much you spend at Nordstrom annually. If you spend a lot, you get to shop first! Then it gradually opens up to each tier, until eventually it opens up to the public (non-cardholders) on August 19th. If you’re not a cardholder, you can sign up to be one now and still get earlier access. It’s definitely worth it if you want to shop a lot of the sale items and if you shop at Nordstrom frequently, because you can earn Nordstrom Notes (basically store credit). Every purchase you make gives you points and eventually you’ll earn $20 rewards. I get these a lot and love it when I go to checkout and have some rewards to use! So REWARDING, lol. But, the interest rates are high though, so you want to be sure you can afford to pay it all off. Here is a breakdown of the dates:
I’ve broken down my picks into categories for you to easily shop. I tried to keep everything reasonable price-wise. No one needs to go bankrupt at this sale, especially in these times, so this is everything I thought was awesome and well-priced!
TOPS & SWEATERS:
I love to stock up for fall during this sale! Snagging some Free People sweaters is always a good idea! They’re the best sweaters and last forever. I love this Free People turtleneck tunic that I linked in a few colors (Black, Ivory, and Purple). I can see this being a winter must-have! I am also loving the cropped tops again this fall as well. Plaid button downs are big this year, too!
Jeans are a great thing to shop during this sale! They tend to be pricier brands at Nordstrom, so I like to snag a pair or two right now. I LOVE the Good American brand. They are incredibly flattering and sooo soft and comfortable. A MUST! I also have and love these Levi’s. I wore them in a post and everyone freaked over them. They’re so cute! I am a huge fan of Topshop denim, too and you can grab these for a steal! I really love this pair of Rag & Bone, too!
I don’t like to spend much on activewear, so I didn’t like a lot of the items that were pricier. I mean, you can get great activewear for less on Amazon (check out my LikeTOknow.IT account, I have a ton linked there!) and other sites, but here is what I thought was worth it! NOTEWORTHY: The Spanx faux leather leggings are TOTALLY worth it! I have had mine for 3 years and they’re still in great condition! Love them.
I love me some loungewear and PJs! Feels so good to put on something cute and cozy at the end of the day (or beginning! LOL!). Since we are working from home a lot, why not, right?! Here are my favs! (Note: I missed a pair of PJs from the first collage in the linked items beneath, so I included it in the second widget with the second collage 🙂 )
COATS & JACKETS:
Coats and jackets are some great items to get during this sale! Since they’re pricier, it’s a great time to grab some for less! These are what I’m eyeing:
SHOES & BOOTS:
I dunno about you, but I am a shoe freak! I can’t have enough! So, I snag a few pairs at this sale every year. A lot of these come in different colors, too, so definitely click on a style if you like it and check out the color options! I felt like the options weren’t as plentiful this year, but here is what I love the most:
DRESSES & SKIRTS:
I found a handful of dresses and skirts I thought were cute and worth spending some money on. Honestly, I wasn’t blown away by a lot of them. I added a couple to the shop-able widget below, too!
I found some really cute accessories that I love! Accessories can really change the tone of your outfit, so I like to have some up to date ones on hand. Here are my picks:
I found a lot of great skincare tools included in this sale! I have the NuFace Facial Toning Kit and I really love it! I think it does make a difference in keeping your skin tight, toned, and lifted. I also use these Dr. Dennis Gross peels frequently. They are great exfoliators and keep your skin fresh and youthful looking. I often use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for acne and this is a great price for this kit! I’m really interested in these light stimulators for wrinkles and acne, too! I linked some makeup as well. It is NOT nontoxic, so please beware of that. I don’t wear this brands often because of that, but for special occasions when I get my makeup done professionally or want different colors, I will wear them on occasion. I loved the colors, so I thought I would share in case you’re interested. I like this Kopari deodorant. It is clean! And of course the brushes are all great! Having good brushes to apply your makeup makes a HUGE difference! I never thought it did until I tried it and it’s like night and day!
