One week from today, THE sale of the year officially starts … for early access cardholders at least! I covered the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as a full time blogger for the first time last year and I’m back again this year because y’all — this sale is so good! I literally look forward to it every year. It’s the perfect time to stock up on must-have basics and a few splurges. And today I’m breaking down everything you need to know about the #NSale.

what is the nordstrom sale?


THE HOTTEST SALE OF THE YEAR. And no, that is not an exaggeration! When else can you get brand new merchandise at up to 40% off? Never, that’s when. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will boast new fall clothing, accessories {yes even designer bags}, shoes and home goods — all on sale! This is the time to stock up on Fall basics and maybe even a splurge or two. The catalog has already been released and it is spectacular! But there will be so many more items than even the thousands shown in the catalog. I like to use the catalog as my inspiration for what I will be looking for — as well as, what I can expect to see. But you can also put together your top picks list from that catalog — and yes, you can see mine at the end of this post!

when is the nordstrom sale?


Early Access Starts July 12.

This year is slightly different in terms of timing — the sale will begin at 12:30pm EST for Nordstrom cardholders.


Public Access starts July 19.

Don’t have a Nordstrom card? No worries — you can still shop the sale starting July 19th!

If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, I highly suggest getting one even if you just use it for the Anniversary Sale. Having early access is key, especially given so many things will sell out ASAP when the sale opens! And you don’t want to be a puddle of tears like I was several years ago when I waited for the public access and missed the most gorgeous pair of boots!


what I’ll be shopping for this year.

I stalked several pairs of boots and booties last year, and could never pull the trigger — then regretted it all fall & winter. So those are my top priority this year. And since I’m weeks away from having a new baby, I’m adding lots of comfy & cute athleisure to my list! Plus a new pair of “athletic” sneakers — TBD if the workout comes with those! I’ve been on the hunt for a new winter coat for a couple of years now and haven’t found the one yet — but the sale catalog had a couple that caught my eye! And of course, it wouldn’t be an anniversary sale without splurging on a fab new bag! The only question is — crossbody or belt bag?
