{nordstrom anniversary sale | early access}



*Click on the SHOP tab at the top of my blog to stay up to date on my latest Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites - I will be linking all of the items I love there. Sale prices will appear if you hover over the image!*

Today marks the first day of Early Access - that means you have to be a card holder to shop the sale. But don't worry, the sale opens up to everybody on the 21st. So if you don't have a card start making your list now and if you do have one... SHOP! The prices go back up on August 7th. [Note: if you go into stores before July 21st you won't be able to shop the items unless you have a card as well]

This sale will be primarily Fall items. I know, I know - "but Jenn, it's still 90+ degrees outside!?" Girl, trust me. It's so strange to be thinking about cardigans and boots right now. But, it's never too early to stock up? No, seriously. The Nordstrom Sale has new fall goodies at ridiculous prices. So when you're in denial about winter and all of a sudden it drops 40 degrees (it happened last year over night in October) you have an adorable sweater to wear over that dress to work.

During this sale I only let myself shop in two categories: Designer Items and Basics.

I own two pairs of Tory Burch boots and THIS is when I bought them - they are almost $200 off! I hate buying expensive things at full price so I try to always snag designer items during these types of sales. I normally have something in mind that I want to invest in for Fall (key word here - INVEST) because I know I will get a lot of use out of them. I never splurge on a designer bag unless I know it will work well with the majority of my closet and I can carry it from day to night. Same with boots - I bought my brown boots last year because I wear my black so much.

The term "basics" depends on your definition. For most it means jeans, white tee, booties, and an everyday sweater. For others it means cute sweaters and tops. I always like to buy some new easy tees (good time to clean out that closet and donate gently worn items) and a cardigan sweater that I will wear weekly. Last year I also bought a cashmere wrap/scarf. That was a designer basic for me - I knew that was the top thing I wanted to purchase. Let me tell ya, I wore it every damn day ;)

Blush, Burgundy and Olive Green are still reigning supreme in Fall colors!
Skinny denim
Over the knee boots (YAS!)
Delicate details - ties, ruffles, lattice, open back
Loose and casual

Okay, now let's get to the good stuff shall we? I've tried something new this year. Each collage is broken down into a style - lounge, weekend, work, and date night. Just simply click on the item you want to shop! [I haven't linked any pants FYI. I'm a firm believer that you need to try those on in stores - and I'm not very familiar with Nordstrom brand sizing!]

What are you purchasing?! Let me know in the comments below :)

  1. Great roundup! I snagged that stripped camel sweater but now I'm thinking I need to back and get those cute booties to go with it!

    1. Thank you!! Oh GOOD CHOICE!! Girl, I'm thinking about those booties too. I promised myself one pair (I snagged the Sam Edelman boots) but those booties are so perfect - I like where they hit at the ankle!
