The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is upon us ya’ll!

Hands Down this is the best sale of the year. That says a lot coming from me on Prime Day (this girl loves Amazon!!!) From tops, sweaters, dresses, jeans and more in the clothing department; women are seriously able to stock their closets for fall at half the price!

What is the sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a once yearly event held by Nordstrom both online and in store. The sale begins with early access (will explain in the following paragraph) and then opens to the general public a week later. Items from women’s clothing and shoes, men’s clothing, children’s, and even home are included and listed at a fraction of the price. After the sale ends, prices go back up on whatever is left. (Trust me…. MOST items sell out fast and before the sale opens to everyone!)

How do I shop Early Access?

Early access starts on July 13th at midnight PST online and I believe most stores will open between the hours of 7am and 8am. You MUST have either a Nordstrom Credit or Nordstrom Debit to shop early access. (That’s why I have one! + the perks of alterations, points, and concierge!) You ABSOLUTELY cannot shop early without the card. You can simply apply online here.

Early access will be different for you shopping in store. Tents are set up within the store with the early access items. They are set up by department. The sales team in store will be incredibly helpful to you so utilize them! Online? Use concierge with any questions! Even sizing questions they are willing to help and answer 24/7! Customer service is a HUUUUUUUGE reason that I am so loyal to Nordstrom. They take excellent care of you.


What’s included in the sale?

The sale is seriously HUUUUUUGE and the items are all Nordstrom exclusive. That means you can’t just pick up the exact same item somewhere else. They partner with brands specifically for the sale to create line items that will only be sold at Nordstrom as part of the Anniversary Sale. Items from clothing,shoes, bags, jewelry, and much more! Oh… did I mention men and children are included? The sale also includes home decor… so you are basically set in every single area.


When can I shop?

Early Access starts this Thursday, July 13th at midnight PST online. Store hours may vary. Early access goes through the 20th. The sale opens to the public on the 21st. Many items will be gone after the first day or so… so if you can I highly recommend getting the card to be able to shop the sale! Sale ends on August 6th at midnight. After that what is left (if anything) goes back to regular pricing.



I’m going to share some of my favorite pieces from years past below for you. It’s amazing you all.

Jeans are a must with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I got these for less than $40 and they were really pretty with flowy tops all fall and winter. Full post here.

These over-the-knee boots were an after sale purchase, but there were so many similar to this as part of the sale and at an even better price! Full post here.

These booties were also an NSALE find. I needed a good black bootie and these have been great for year-round wear. Full post here.

Last year I was all about shoes with the sale and these were the best investment. I wore them almost daily and they really go with everything. Full post here.

Faux leather leggings are always something I scoop up each year. These are really affordable and part of the sale again this year! Full Post Here.

The sale is a great time to stock up on hats. I still have several I scooped up from the sale and wear all year long. Full post here.

The Tory Burch swing bags area always a huge hit at this sale! Hint: this years is SUPER neutral and pretty! You’re going to LOVE it! Full post here.

OTK Boots are a staple for the sale. I still wear these regularly all fall and winter long. Full post here.

My Tory Burch Boots came from this sale! They have another pair coming this sale that are GORGEOUS! full post here

Every single year I do two things: I stock up on basics I need for every fall and I get some more trendy pieces that I don’t want to spend a lot on. That covers me on both ends of the spectrum. These are also items I will continue wearing for years. Booties, boots, jeans, sweaters. All necessities for fall and winter that never go out of style.

I will be posting almost daily about the sale to inform you of re-stocks, full outfits, dressing room try-ons and more! There will be a new tab added to the top menu to have it all in one place and make sure to follow along on instagram! I will keep you posted there much more frequently!
