Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

nsale

Something big is coming this Friday! It’s my favorite sale of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m letting you in on all the tips and tricks to get the most bang for your buck during this sale.

When Can I Shop?

Early Access begins for cardholders on July 12th in store and online at 12:30 pm EST. You can apply either for a credit or debit card. The best part of the whole thing is you don’t have to pay with it during the sale if you don’t want to but you do have to have one of the cards to access the sale early. I have been shopping this sale for 5 years now and at first I shopped regular access and many things were sold out by that time.

The Anniversary Sale access opens to everyone on July 19th-August 4th in store and online. During this time some items will be restocked but it’s just a luck of the draw on which ones are. I’ll be giving constant updates on restocks during this time on my blog and Instagram.

 

How Can I Shop?

I prefer shopping online since I don’t live near a Nordstrom location. I shop via my laptop on the website or the app. I encourage you to create a Nordstrom account for real before the sale begins that has all your info saved. It makes check-out quicker and easier. It also is much more likely that you’ll get the pieces you want before the sell out.

 

What types of items will be for sale?

Fall/winter clothing and shoes for men, women, and children; items for your home and beauty products. I’m going to show you some of my favorites from last year’s sale and I’ll have a new post this weekend with my favorites from the 2019 sale.

I get one of these Leith cardigans every single year. This was last year’s gorgeous blue version. Always get your true size or size down because they run large! I have an XS on here. I paired it with the BP Camisole in black. This item will also be back this year in this color and some fun prints! I’ll definitely grab another one for layering.

The BP tees both long sleeve and short sleeve are always a great deal and perfect for layering!

My vest is North Face and I get one yearly. They go with everything and last forever. My thermal sold out during the early access last year and I still can’t get enough. The wedge tennis shoes are Steve Madden and the most comfortable for a long day of standing on your feet or walking.

 

Another fun camisole they had last year. I loved the color and detail on this one from WAYF.

Paired a Leith cardigan from 2 years ago from the sale with last year’s favorite dress of mine. This cute gray t-shirt material dress was worn to school and everywhere in between. I wish I had also snagged the black one they had!

This sweater is probably one of my favorite things I bought last year. It sold out during Early Access and I am still obsessed with it.

They always have the best BP Plaid shirts every year during the sale. They fit true to size and go with everything! These sneakers were also part of the sale last year.

This cardigan was 2-3 years ago but I still wear it weekly during the fall and winter. It goes with everything! It sold out during the Early Access and feels like cashmere.

My sweater is BP and can be worn forward or backward. I’d love this in another color for fall!

My Patagonia better sweater vest had been on repeat for years. I actually didn’t get it from the sale so I paid a lot more for it. Definitely a staple piece of mine for fall and winter!

I’ve almost bought this Patagonia Nano jacket every year during the sale and finally did it last year. It’s one of my most worn items and perfect for being easily packed for travel. These usually go fast during the sale!

My BlankNYC suede moto jacket is other item I never could quite pull the trigger on but is usually included in the sale. Unfortunately, I didn’t get this during the sale and it was much more expensive.

Besides all these items I love the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan, Zella Running sock packs, Antica Farmcista Diffusers and Candles in Prosecco, La Mer Favorites Kit, and Barefoot Dreams throws!

My #NSale Picks

Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale began yesterday and I’m sharing my picks today! Y’all this is probably my favorite purchase I made during this sale. I’ve been wanting one of these jackets forever but couldn’t justify it because of the price. It’s on sale for $149 which is the cheapest I’ve ever seen. I’m a bit of a self-proclaimed Patagonia-holic. I have more pullovers than I care to share, multiple vests and a sweater jacket. I have two heavy duty puffer coats already but felt like this would be greater for weather that’s not below freezing. I got the Small so I could wear layers underneath it. Patagonia Down Jacket I got these Lucky booties in a 6.5 in the grey color. I honestly don’t buy a ton of shoes other than sneakers because they just don’t typically excite me. I love these though and still want them in another color! Lucky Yabba Bootie I’ve been wanting to try La Mer forever because I’ve heard so many good things but the price tag has kept me away. This set is $85 and contains the eye cream and moisturizer and typically just the moisturizer costs that much for the smallest size. I’m going to do a skin care post soon and I’ll review both of these items. La Mer Little Miracles CollectionI already have three of these Leith cocoon cardigans from previous years so I told myself I wouldn’t buy any this year. Then I saw this color. I had to have it since it’s my favorite color and can’t wait for it to come in. These cardigans are pretty light weight and fit very true to size. This sleeves are usually pretty long so I just roll them. I always get an XS in these. Leith Cocoon CardiganTwo of my favorite things…sweatshirt material and ruffles. Teacher friends, y’all need this for school! I’m not able to link this right now because it says it can’t be found. I’ll update if I get the link.I’ve been on a pajama kick lately and I’m not made about it. Excited to try these! I always go up a size in lounge clothing to make sure they’re extra comfortable. I got a small in these pants. $25 is a steal for these as they’re usually $40. Lounge Pant This camisole sold out last year so I didn’t get to try it. I ordered this color in an XS and know I will layer it under so many cardigans this fall and winter. BP Cami Zella 3-pack of seamless underwear. These look super comfy and I’m all about seamless everything. I got an XS.Zella 3-Pack Briefs Zella 3-Pack Briefs Got this Adidas pack of socks in the mint collection but apparently those sold out and I couldn’t find the picture. Loving this set with the pink though! I can never have enough athletic socks….I swear they always wind up missing. Adidas SocksMy feet are cold literally 24/7. I wear my UGG slippers year round. These Barefoot Dreams socks have great reviews and I decided to try this pair.  Barefoot Dreams SocksASTR the Label jumpsuit in Navy. I cannot wait to wear this to work! I feel like this is a piece that will never go out of style. Gibson Convertible Wrap in Black. I love how versatile this piece is. It can be worn as pictured but also has snaps so you can convert it to a shirt or anything else you want. I feel like this would be a great gift for your sister, mother, mother-in-law etc. I was between this color and the grey. It comes in quite a few colors though. Gibson Fleece WrapI love a good tee shirt dress. The tie detail is so good and makes it flattering for many different body types. It also comes in black. I got a small for extra length. Tie Waist Tee Shirt DressLove this cozy sweater. It can be worn as pictured or turned around backwards with the knot in the back for a low-back look. I got a small. BP Twist Front SweaterI love a good plaid flannel. This color is very different from any of the others I own. It will be a great season transition piece. I got an XS. BP Plaid Shirt

So excited that thermals are on trend this year because I’ve been obsessed for awhile! I can’t wait to wear this one tied up in the front. I got an XS in this color. Thermal CardiganI am camo obsessed! I cannot wait to layer this piece under a vest. This thermal comes in many different color options. I got the XS and honestly want it in another color. Camo ThermalBarefoot Dreams Circle cardigan has always been something I’ve wanted to try. I got it in this charcoal color and hoping it lives up to the hype!

This my favorite fragrance company and a new scent for them. Excited to try it! My favorite scent and diffuser. If you only buy one item for your home let it be this! Love a good basic tee. Got this color in an XS. Unfortunately they sold out of the tan stripe but I’m going to keep checking back for a restock. BP Raw Edge TeeI didn’t purchase this Duffield Throw by UGG because I already had it. I got it from my mother-in-law two years ago for Christmas and I’m obsessed. I sleep with it every night. Makes a great gift! It’s on major sale and I have it in this deep charcoal color. I’ve washed it many times and it has stayed in pristine condition. Highly recommend! The following items are things I didn’t buy but are still on my wishlist. Trying to have some self-control here y’all.I’ve been a Nike diehard as long as I can remember but Adidas is slowly winning me over. The past two pairs of their shoes I’ve purchased have been SO comfortable. Love this color and don’t have this style yet. Trying to decide if I really need another pair of sneakers though! These are only $63 which is an absolute steal. I’m obsessed with anything that has a bow. So I technically may not need these but they’re so cute! Haven’t purchased because I need to know if they’re comfortable or not. I don’t do uncomfortable shoes no matter how cute. Leave me a comment and let me know what you’re getting from the sale!
