Hi friends! It’s almost time for the biggest sale of the year, Christmas in July! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the event that everyone and their mother’s brother looks forward to. Last year was my first year shopping and it was a blast! I don’t have a Nordstrom near me, so all of my shares will be things I actually intend on keeping or collages of popular items. Keep reading to see what exactly the sale is all about, how to prepare for it, and a few of the things I will be looking for this year!
What is the NSale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSale for short) is a huge event that the department store holds where they discount NEW fall and winter items. You read that right, they don’t discount already released items from summer, the new arrivals are HEAVILY discounted. It includes women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, beauty, and home items. Major brands like Free People, Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, and more will be discounted 40%-70% off! Isn’t that awesome! This is the time to stock up on your transitional pieces and fall staples that you can wear for months.

How to Shop the Sale
If you are a cardholder, I highly suggest shopping the sale right when it opens at 12:30 pm EST. Items sell out within minutes and last year, I didn’t see many restocks. If you order online, like I do, you can order multiple sizes and return whatever you do not want to keep. Nordstrom is amazing in that they do free returns AND free shipping. This sale is the best for stocking up on fall and winter basics so I would look in your closets to see which staples you are missing. These items include some solid tanks/camis, a cardigan, a jacket/coat, booties, and a nice pair of jeans. I fell in love with Articles of Society jeans because of this sale!
What Will I Post?
For the first couple days of the sale, I will be posting what I purchased and then post on my Instagram Stories and feed when they arrive with reviews of each product. I will not be posting constantly as I know a lot of you will be sick of it very quickly! On the blog, I will post my top picks in each category with the items I see being the most popular and what I think is worth it rather than what is the most popular.
