Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hey Guys! So I'm coming atchya with some important notes about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (like every other blogger ever!).  I love Nordstrom and I love this sale (like, for real).  However, it is SO easy to get all caught up in what everyone is sharing and find yourself wanting to spend a thousand dollars on items just because it's fun and exciting and new and you have to have it, just to be bummed you can't do that or, worse, spend more than your budget and have buyers remorse.  So, this year, I am sharing the 6 items I actually bought and why.

First, basic sale facts:

1st Day of Early Access-Today, July 12th for Nordstrom Card Holders

Last Day of Early Access-July 19th

1st Day Open to the Public-July 20th

Last Day of Sale-August 5th

What makes the Anniversary Sale so special?

Why I love this sale and why every other blogger, shopper, Nordies girl loves this sale is simple.  It's the only time NEW merch is on sale at Nordstrom.  And on August 6th, they will continue selling these amazing fall items at full price! Trust me, I know! Worked at Nordies for years in college and I had to peel off those sale prices on tags allllll day!

My Process:

I basically went through and thought about which items have stood the test of time over the past two or three anniversary sales, and which have been sort of ehhhh purchases.  I found that I already have good denim staples in my closet.  If I didn't buy denim, that freed a ton in my budget! I personally find that the denim options included in the sale are often more trendy and I am a much more basic, classic jean kind of girl. I also found that in the past I stocked up on basics that I just grew tired of.  So, I skipped that this year too!

So, what worked the past few years that I still grab to wear? Statement tees and cardis! If you want a lot of bang for your buck, this is where to spend the majority of your budget! I got two cardigans and four shirts that can easily be mixed and matched for multiple fall and fall transition outfits.  Hope you love what I came up with! xoxox
