Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Your One-Stop Shop

It's Almost Sale Time!

I made you a promise this year and intend to stick to it! That being not to overwhelm you with this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. We're going to keep it pretty straightforward and simple this year, and I'm going to round up every little thing you need right here in this post. Consider it your one-stop shop!

What NOT to Buy from the Sale

Last year I created a post, "What NOT to Buy from the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale". I wanted to leave this post as a resource for you, as it definitely still applies to this year! In summary, I covered 4 "pass" categories: the one thing you see everyone buying, more than a handful of Fall pieces, a major splurge item, and basics. See more on why I recommend skipping over these items in last year's post.

If You Want to Browse My Full Selection

Head over to NSALE HOME! There you'll find shop tabs for categories like boots and shoes, home, and mens (to name a few) where you can browse my curated selection. These shop tabs are updated daily as new items are released for the sale! Think of it as a carefully curated, condensed version of what you'll see on Nordstrom's website with the best of the best!

At the End of the Day...

It's just a sale. With the amount of coverage on social media and blogs, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, pressured to buy, and like it's all just too much. My goal is to give you a watered down version of the huge selection to help you more easily find some on-trend pieces for the new season, along with item's I personally already own and love.

Remember that I'm just a DM away! Shoot me a message on IG if you have any questions that I don't cover in this post!

ADIDAS SWIFTRUN SNEAKER

This running sneaker by Adidas is my everyday shoe! I wear this on long walks and for high impact workouts. I find that this style runs true to size (I wear a 7 and I am a true 7).

OVERSIZED DENIM JACKET

A Fall staple! Always impressed by Madewell's quality denim, and this is the perfect year-round wash. I find Madewell's outerwear runs TTS (I wear M).

FREE PEOPLE MOCK NECK SWEATER

If you've been around, you know that I'm a sweater fiend. This style was one of my most-worn last season! Size down 1 size (I wear S). Comes in new colors this year too!

RIKI SKINNY VANITY MIRROR

The Riki Mirror was truly one of those purchases I thought I'd end up regretting.  I was so wrong. I use this every day for makeup, and also every time I travel. The lighting is amazing and it will allow you to do your makeup in the pitch black!

FAUX LEATHER BIKER JACKET

Another Fall staple, a black leather biker jacket is a rite of passage! The sale bring this Topshop piece down to just $50, which is a great deal given Topshop's high quality. 

BAREFOOT DREAMS THROW

I used to roll my eyes about Barefoot Dreams, until I gave in and actually tried it! We have these blankets all throughout the house and I sleep with mine every night. Truly THE most cozy, and also makes a wonderful gift.

FELT HAT

Fall hats always go so quickly during the Nsale! I love the neutral color of this one. Great option if you want to start wearing more hats this season for under $40.

PLATFORM CHELSEA BOOT

I live in Chelsea boots during the Fall and Winter, and this was one of the first to catch my eye. So easy to slip on and off, and we love a platform! This will be one of my first purchases. 

LONGCHAMP EXPANDABLE TOTE

Longchamp bags are the best travel investment I've made over the years. They're durable, easy to clean and zip all the way closed. This expandable option is great for a long weekend trip!

SPANX FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS

The leggings heard around the world! Hands down the most flattering compression leggings I own. I have these in both M and L, and prefer the L (they run on the smaller side).

LEVI'S 501 STRAIGHT LEG JEANS

Levi's is a long-time favorite denim brand and the 501 cropped style is a great year-round fit. I love the wash on these! I usually size up to 29 in Levi's.

SUEDE POINTED TOE BOOT

I love a pointed toe boot, and Marc Fisher is always a go-to brand for comfort and quality. Loving this new Fall style, and will be grabbing these in taupe. I find the brand runs TTS!

Sale FAQ's

How do you shop early access to the sale?

Nordstrom cardholders are eligible to shop early access to the sale. Every cardholder is a part of a different tier, depending on annual spending. Icons, who are the highest level cardholders, gain access the earliest on August 4th, Ambassadors on August 7th, Influencers on August 10th, and Insiders on August 13th. The full sale opens to the general public on August 19th, and runs for both cardholders and general public until August 30th.

Many shoppers choose to open a Nordstrom card just for the sale, as pieces tend to sell out very quickly during early access. That being said, I only encourage you to open a Nordstrom card if it's something you're financially able and comfortable doing!

What are the best brands to look out for?

My first and most frequently searched brand is always Topshop. Madewell, Blank NYC, Levi's, Marc Fisher, Steve Madden, Barefoot Dreams & Leith are others I also keep a special eye out for!

What's at the top of your list?
