It’s finally here! Our favorite sale of the year — the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with Early Access right now for cardholders, aka #NSale Early Access. Why it’s so exciting is because this is the NEW stuff that’s being sold for fall/winter, not old stuff that they’re trying to get rid of!
To shop these deals for the upcoming fall season in the best sizes and color ways, you need to use your Nordstrom card. No worries, though — it’s easy to get one and I highly recommend the debit card, which I’ve had for years. It’s linked to my checking account and gives me special perks like $20 certificates every once in a while, access to special events and sales (like this one!), and even credits for alterations in-house. If you don’t have a card yet, it’s a no-brainer!
After July 20th, the sale will open to non-cardholders, but from my experience shopping the sale for the past few years, the best colors and most popular sizes are often sold out by then. Just something to consider.
Next is the fun stuff. I’m seeing the usual fall lineup for Women, Men, Kids, Beauty and even Home. Some maternity picks this year, which I haven’t noticed in years past. What’s awesome about the #NSale is you get to stock up for the cooler months ahead with the stuff you’ll want/need anyway but ON SALE. It’s also a great time to shop for Christmas and/or birthday gifts with savings. Prices go back up on August 6th.
Things I own and love included in the sale:
What I’ve ordered so far:
Ordered this Treasure & Bond Gathered Pleat Front Tee in size small (runs a little big). Pretty sheer, but I can’t pass up the unique front detail. $29.90 now, goes up to $49 after the sale.
Ordered this Hinge Ruffle Shift Dress in small. I usually don’t go for these kinds of colors, but I surprised myself with this one. Nursing-friendly and transitions well from summer into fall. $58.90 now, goes up to $89 after the sale.
Ordered this Rails Embroidered Military Shirt ($124.90 now, $188 after sale) and these AG The Legging Raw Hem Jeans ($149.90 now, $225 after the sale). Definitely pricier pieces, but they both feel like an absolute dream on! The button-down shirt is nursing-friendly and a nice color that complements my skin tone. This is definitely the time to try Rails if you haven’t already — their fabrics are super soft. AG Jeans are probably my favorite designer jean brand, because they have good stretch and cater to my curvier shape.
Ordered this Lush Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse in medium. Comes in 5 colors! $31.90 now, $49 after the sale.
Passed on this Blank NYC Embroidered Faux Leather Jacket because I have a similar one, but thought some of you ladies might want to see it on. Wearing a size medium here. $111.90 now, $168 after the sale.
Also passed on this Blank NYC Suede Moto Jacket, because I bought it during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in a purple/burgundy color. Wish I had waited for this beautiful grey, though! Wearing a medium here. $125.90 now, $188 after the sale.
Passed on this Trouvé Off the Shoulder Poplin Sweater in a size medium, because it’s a less-forgiving fit for my postpartum body. I want to be able to let loose and breathe, hehe. $58.90 now, $89 after the sale.
Passed on this Trouvé Wrap Blouse in a size small, because it’s kind of a lot of fabric around my chest, although nursing-friendly. Comes in three colors. $45.90 now, $69 after the sale.
Passed on this Leith Bell Sleeve Sweater in size small, although I might have to order it later because it’s such a good deal and the sleeves are a lot of fun. $38.90 now, $59 after the sale.
Dang it! Can’t find this Hinge cardigan online, so it’s likely sold out right now. If you find it in store, it’s gorgeous, both the color and cool sleeves. Should have taken it home with me. This is a size medium.
Ordered these Sam Edelman Raisa Bow Flats in this nude color already, but I was happy to see them in store and confirm the beautiful design and quality! $79.90 now, $119.95 after the sale.
Passed on these Louis et Cie blush pink velvet heels, but I couldn’t help staring at them. If you have an office job or dress up for church often, these are gorgeous. I feel like they’re appropriate year-round. Love the chunkier heel for stability as a mom. $79.90 now, $119.95 after the sale.
Ordered these Sonix Parker 50mm Sunnies in the other lighter tortoise color — couldn’t find the color I ordered in store either of the times I went, but sometimes they come back in stock online so keep checking back. $79.90 now, $120 after the sale.
Passed on this Nadri Crossover CZ Ring, because I already have two criss-cross rings like it. This was a size 7, but I would have needed a size 8 for my middle finger. I’d say it runs small, because I wear a size 7 in my other rings on this finger. $35.90 now, $55 after the sale.
