Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9

It is time again for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I know it is a really crazy time right now and many of us aren't shopping at all or at least cutting back on our spending. There are many more important things happening in this world than a sale. But in case you are interested, I wanted to put together on comprehensive post on it. This one will be saved on the top of the site for you to come back to during the sale. I will also update it with any new items that are added. 

If you have shopped the sale in years past you may find that some things look pretty similar. A lot of the shoes and sweaters are very similar from year to year. Many brands feature the same product each year just the new season's version. So if you have purchased some items in the past you will see the new version. The great thing is that you know the items are still in style!

First, you'll have to find out when you can shop. The chart below shows the dates of the sale. If you have a Nordstrom card, you'll need to look up your status to see when your early access starts. The chart below has all the dates listed. What is great that this year you can preview whats on sale. If you find some things you like, save then in your wishlist and then when your shopping window opens, you'll be able to easily add them to your cart. 

What makes this sale a little different than others is that pre-season items are on sale. Which means a lot of Fall/Winter items are on sale now. When the sale is over they will go back to their regular price.

I look at this sale in two ways. It can be a good time to stock up on a few Fall items you'll need or it can be a great time to get a splurge worthy item or two at a better price. Many of the items I bought in years past are things I still love and will wear for years. Jeans are a great item to get during this sale! 


We all know a classic black dress is always needed in your wardrobe. Work functions, dinner, a night out, weddings, the list goes on and on of events that a black dress is appropriate for. Many times when I am uninspired on what to wear, I go to a black dress because I know it will be flattering and stylish.  I love the mixed materials and pleated skirt on this one. 

One of my favorite items on sale are the Spanx faux leather leggings. I wear them at least once a week in the Fall and Winter. They are always on my must buy list for the cooler weather because they fit so well, are flattering and can be dressy or casual!

Beyond black dresses, the sale has some great fall dresses. This red and white midi dress is beautiful and would pair so well with these white booties! This blue print dress is a great transitional dress. I'd wear it now with my sparkle sneakers from this post and then when it gets colder, layer a sweater over it and add booties.

Madewell makes my favorite jeans! I have several pairs including these black ones. During the Fall and Winter I think I wear my black jeans more than my blue denim. Paired with a black bootie or heel, they create a long lean line and are so flattering. Black jeans can also add a bit of edge to an outfit!

Vince makes some of my absolute favorite sweaters! They are incredibly soft, flattering and stylish. They are made with high quality fabrics so will last for years. This brand is definitely a splurge but I try to get one nice new sweater a year to add to my wardrobe, knowing I will have it forever.

Last year I was on the search for a pair of white booties. It took awhile to find a pair I love that looked high quality and the leather didn't have too much shine. This pair is very similar to the ones I bought. What I've loved most about a white bootie is how you can wear them thru most seasons.  These croc heels are another great transitional item. They come in four colors and the blush is really tempting! Another blush item I love are these slip-ons. Cole Haan shoes are so comfortable too!

I wish I need a new tote because I am loving this Clare V. leopard one. It's a great size to carry everything and has options to carry it crossbody or with two handles. The leopard isn't calf hair so it will last longer and not wear as easily.

This lip kit is included in this sale almost every year. Last year I bought it and completely fell in love with the color. The color Pillow Talk is well known as the perfect nude lip color that looks good on everyone and so far I believe the claim because I haven't found anyone that doesn't look good in it. 

Kate Sommerville's Exfolikate is one of my favorite exfoliants. Nothing makes my skin softer and smoother and you don't need to use it that often. This post shares how I use it. It is a bit pricey so I typically buy the small tubes and use sparingly but I plan to get this big tube so that I will have it for the next year. 

Supergoop is basically the only brand of sunscreen I buy! The 3 pack of the antioxidant sprays is a great deal and will get you way past the rest of the summer. And since my skin never sees the sun, I am always using this tanning foam. I mention the foam here as well.
