Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all enjoyed the long holiday weekend! It was nice to unplug for a few days and spend time away from the city, but I was happy to get back to work today because I have so much on my to-do list! But the one thing I’m most looking forward to this week? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening and I'm giving you everything you need to know about the sale and how you can shop the best of the best!

What is the Anniversary sale? It's a 3-week long sale that debuts all the Fall fashion at a discounted price. It's the best time to stock up on boots, coats, sweaters, handbags and more before the new season starts!
What are the dates? July 11th Nordstrom Icon & Ambassador cardholders get to pre-shop the sale online before anyone else at 9:30am PST.. July 12-18 all Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the sale in-store and online. July 19-Aug 4 the sale is open to the public. Don't have a Nordstrom card? Apply for one here so you can get in on the action before everyone else!
What can you expect at the sale? You can view the full catalog here for a sneak peek of all the items that will be on sale. This is just a peek, the actual sale will have much, much more! Items include women's and mens' clothing, accessories, kids, & home!
How can you shop my picks? Yes, I do get a small commission if you purchase from my links, but I totally understand if you would rather shop in store, too. I personally buy things online on the first day of early access just in case they sell out, then I make a trip in store to try on things that I may have missed. On the very first day of early access, I will publish a blog post with all my favorites from the sale by category. These will be things that I know will sell out fast so you'll want to make sure to purchase them quickly. Last year, a lot of stuff that I wanted but didn’t buy sold out, so if you love something I would add to cart ASAP to avoid missing out. The great part about shopping online? Returns are free and easy as they give you a pre-paid mailing label to send it back if not everything works out! Plus, you beat the crowds and bad lighting in the dressing room. I also have access to preview the sale in store before anyone else, so I will be seeing everything in person, trying some things on (that fit over my belly, LOL) and then sharing them in my Instagram stories as well. Needless to say, I will have the inside scoop on all the goods and all you have to do is click to shop!
The best way to shop? Because this is thier biggest sale of the year, the stores are likely going to be very crowded on the first day of Early Access (July 12) through the weekend and the first day of the public sale (7/19). Your best bet to avoid the crowds, bad dressing room lighting and needy sales people is to shop online! This will also ensure you get all the times you want as the quantities in store are very limited. If you are worried about waiting for product to ship to you, you can choose to buy online/pick up in store so you can get your purchases same day or the next day. But again, there is far more inventory online so if you can wait it out I would just have it shipped to you. They offer free returns and provide a pre-paid mailing label so you just ship back what you don’t want! It doesn’t get much easier than that! *Tip: if you are unsure what size you are, order two and send back the one that doesn’t fit.
Stay tuned for this Thursday 7/11 at 9:30am PST when my “Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale” post goes live!
