Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview is now live so I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces and a few shopping tips. After working for Nordstrom for many years this has definitely become one of my favorite sales. The main difference between this sale and many others is that the merchandise is new merchandise arriving for fall that is temporarily discounted for the sale and then goes back to regular price; while most sales are items at the end of the season when inventory is being moved out.
The Anniversary sale is open to everyone from August 19th – 30th with prices going back up on the 31st. All cardholders can gain early access on August 13th with some levels being able to access earlier. This year the main difference is the preview is all available online and the best part is you can add items to your wish list in your account for easy checkout when the sale opens. This is so much easier than years prior! Check out the preview here!
My general approach to the sale is to try to grab wardrobe staples and/or items that rarely go on sale to get most out of it. I also think it’s important to know your wardrobe before you shop. First you want to know what you are actually in need of or what needs to be replaced. Secondly take a good look at what you have; look at things like your general color palette and style to know what will work into what you already have. I think we all have fallen into the trap of seeing something that we really like but it doesn’t actually work with what you have and you end up not wearing it. Plan ahead so you don’t waste your money!
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks
Here’s some outfit inspiration with some of my favorite pieces. I think this season is still going to be about comfy style and even workwear will still have a laid back vibe. Denim is a great thing to grab while its on sale. If you are looking for a pair thats a good value I love Kut from the Kloth and they are great quality and a really good price. Everything is linked below as well as some additional options at the end of the post.
I have been spending a lot of time in activewear lately! Getting a few good quality pieces makes all the difference. I’ve always been a big fan of Zella leggings!
One thing a lot of people overlook during this sale are the home items! The home items I bought last year are my favorite things I bought. This blush fringe throw is such a great value and has held up amazing!! It still looks brand new even with 2 kids and a dog! This is also a great time to stock up on gifts for the holidays, birthdays or hostess. The Anthropologie candles, barefoot dreams throw or these corksicle items all make great gifts!
There are so many great things to choose from during the sale so find what best fits your needs. I’ll continue to share my thoughts and picks over on my Instagram if you want to follow along there. Below is a roundup of everything and some additional favorites. Happy shopping!
