It’s here, y’all. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka–Christmas in July) is finally HERE! And you’re in luck because we woke up at an ungodly hour this morning to round up our top picks just for YOU! Sooooo, pass the diet coke and let’s get rollin’. Shall we?
Oh but first–a few quick tips that’ll help you understand and make the most of this epic sale!
- Early access starts today, which means only cardholders can shop the sale prices until it opens to the public on July 21st. So you’re not a cardholder yet? Not to worry…you can get approved now and start shopping in minutes!
2. One of the great things about this sale is that it’s all brand new inventory from the upcoming season. Think FALL! In my opinion, it’s the most fun season to dress for anyway!
3. We’ve mentioned this many times before, but FREE shipping AND returns! So order several sizes if you need to…you can send back anything you don’t want at no cost to you.
4. Items are restocked throughout the sale, so don’t be discouraged if something is no longer available. It might come back before August 8th.
5. And this little pearl of advice that I was given recently just blew my mind. If something you love isn’t available in your size or the color you’d like–buy it anyway. Most items are restocked after the sale and you should be able to exchange it for what you really want then. Genius!
Okay, time for that Diet Coke now. Let’s go!
1. Zella Live In Leggings
How about an old favorite to kick things off?? These are my tried and true, wear them several times a week, leggings. They’re perfect for running errands, lounging around the house, chasing kids…or working out if you must 😉 Plus they’re half the price of Lululemon! I stock up during the anniversary sale every year!!
2. Leopard Scarf
At this under $12 price point, this is bound to sell out FAST! They say leopard is the new neutral, and I’m on board with that. This is quick way to spice up a LBD (little black dress) or even Zella leggings and a sweatshirt. You can’t go wrong.
3. Circle Cardigan
This is the one item I was REALLY hoping would be included in the sale…and it is! It’s my lucky day! I have a few other things from Barefoot Dreams and they are one word: MAGICAL. I read a review that said this cardigan was like wearing a cloud and I would whole-heartedly agree with that! Well worth the investment!! Oh and it comes in plus size too!!
4. The Bra from Heaven
Every issue you’ve ever had with a bra will be solved with this little diddy. It’s like youre wearing NOTHING, with support. I’m not kidding when I say, this is the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself. I had no idea how BAD all my bras were till I met this gal. Your boobs are already thanking you!
5. Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans
These were a best-seller last year–and for good reason! The denim is super soft, with just the right amount of stretch. They’re designed to smooth, shape and LIFT in all the right places. Um…yes please! And did I mention they’re less than $50?!?
6. Ankle Wrap Flats
These were one of the first things in my cart this morning. Not only are they darling, they will literally go with everything – to the office, church, with skinnies on a date night. They’re available in several colors but I went with a neutral black. I also love the burgundy suede. Picture those with a big, comfy cardigan and leggings!
7. Rib Stitch Cardigan
A good, neutral, light-weight cardigan has been on my list for awhile and this one fits the bill perfectly. It will be nice to throw on when I need an extra layer–whether it’s church or the freezer isle at the grocery store 😉
8. Flower Bomb perfume
This SCENT! It’s my fave and this is a FANTASTIC price for the set. If you aren’t already addicted, trust me on it. I feel like the name makes you wonder if you’ll smell like a funeral home, but it’s subtle and light and beautiful. Remember, FREE returns, so if you don’t like it you can send it back, don’t fret.
9. Kendra Scott Earrings
Ahhhh, my favorite kind of Kendra Scott…the SALE kind! Are these perfect or what?? I’m digging the rose gold option too!
10. Moto Leggings
The comfort of leggings with a little extra flare! I love the faded wash of these too. No one will know you’re wearing leggings…and they sure won’t know they were less than $30!
11. AOS Jeans
Everyone claims you need $200 jeans to look good. LIES! LIES I tell you! These AOS jeans are some of my favorite as they have the perfect amount of stretch. Be sure to size down a size, as they do stretch out with wear a bit. (That number should have you feeling extra good). If you’re worried about sizing, order two and return one….FREE RETURNS people!
12. Zella High Waist Crops
I’m not gonna lie…I’m wearing these in black right now. My favorite cropped yoga pants EVER. I love the mesh detail on the back and I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but…high-waist is everything! No muffin tops around here!!!
13. Faux Leather Moto Jacket
They call this life changer, and they aren’t kidding. When I got mine, I wondered if I’d wear it. Then Fall happened, and I literally wore it at LEAST twice a week. It’s just cool. And goes with EVERYTHING. Throw it on with jogger, or a dress or jeans and you look instantly like you’re a Hollywood Celebrity. Don’t be scared ladies, this is the real fashion deal. A staple that can easily fit into a capsule wardrobe.
14. V-Neck Tunic Tee
Could this be my perfect tee? I’m sure hoping so! A lightweight v-neck with some length!!! Yes please! I’m picking up several colors!
15. Faux Leather Tote
Whether you’re carrying a laptop or diapers and sippy cups (or both!!)–this black tote is a must-have. And this is a fantastic price for a high quality brand.
16. Converse Shoreline Sneakers
You may know by now…we LOVE these shoes!!!! (And so does half of the world’s female population) They are an essential piece in my wardrobe because they’re cute, comfy, and go with SO much. Actually I’m not sure what in the world I wore before I had these?!? At this price, I may have to pick up a new color!
17. Plaid Shirt
Let it be known NOT all plaid shirts are created equally. Some shrink. Some are too oversized. Some pill after a few washes. THIS one, this one is gold. Another FALL (and winter) capsule wardrobe staple. It’s crazy soft.
18. Tempo Running Shorts
These have been my favorite shorts since college (and I’m not telling you how long ago that was!!!) They rarely go on sale, so when they do, I always snag a pair! They’ll take you from the gym to Target–and everywhere in between.
19. Fall colored Skinny
Listen, the easiest way to change up the jean/yoga pant routine is to throw in a pair of colored skinny. I especially like these two colors because they’re neutral enough to wear ALL fall and winter. Treat them just like you would a regular jean. Throw on with a chambray top or a basic white and you’re set forever and ever amen. I own several pants of this brand. They do run a tad bit, so if between sizes, size down.
20. Plaid Blanket Wrap
Can you say fall essential?? It can be worn as a blanket shawl or a scarf…and it make me want to be roasting s’more around a campfire ASAP.
21. Jute Monogrammed tote
I usually like basic classic peices when it comes to my bags, but this bag is DARLING. Instantly, I thought GIFTS. At this $21 (YES!), they would make awesome Christmas gifts, teacher gifts, shower gifts…whatever. So think about what letters you need before they sell out!
22. Lazy Morning Lounge Pants
The name of these pants alone sold me. Don’t they just make you long for a Saturday morning???
So tell us…what’s in YOUR cart? And stay tuned because we’ll be covering every inch of this monster sale the next couple weeks! Happy shopping, friends!
