Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s that time of the year again- the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

This sale can seem like a lot (so many things), lasts for a month, and is either your favorite (old and new seasons dicounted and deals that can rejuvenate your waredrobe) or your least favorite (Everyone talks about it ALOT). No matter where you fall on this spectrum I have a little something for you.

Nordstrom’s is doing the sale a bit differently this year: previews started yesterday, early access for Card Members begins July 12, and the sale ends August 8th. If this is not your thing- great news! This is the one and only dedicated post we’re doing for the sale. Love this sale and want to shop it constantly? Got you covered there as well! Follow me in the LiketoKnowit and ShopStyle Apps (I’ll be constantly updating my looks and picks, crossing my fingers we all get what we want!).

While you may not be able to join the sale till after July 12, this preview gives us a chance to really think about the sale, stragetize, and shop (or pre-shop!). How I recommend planning out your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping?
-Think about what you need. No need to go overboard and clean out your closet, but take a look at what you’re wearing. What you’re going to wear. What you want to wear. What holes do you need to fill? What do you need to replace? Make yourself a list to give yourself a starting point. Then:
-Take your time going over the preview. Look at all the categories. Look at all the things. There is so much going into this sale, especially in the preview, it’s not the time to limit yourself at all. Maybe you find things you didn’t know you need, maybe what you needed looks different than what you thought. Get an idea of what you love, need, and wouldn’t hate.
-Bookmark everything you like. Even kind of like. Bookmarking will help locate your items ASAP when you’re able to shop (and you can do that in the shopping apps or even in your internet browser).
-Buy as soon as you can. My motto for this sale is that it’s better to return than miss out and regret. Things will sell out, and while some will be restocked, some won’t. There are fantastic deals to be had, and you don’t want to end up paying hundreds more later on!

With that all being said: how do you feel about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? What are you looking for?

Friday we’ll have non-sale content up, but below I’ve linked some of the things I’m loving in the preview!
