Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tips | Favorite Items

The best sale on women fashion, style, and beauty for fall, winter, summer, and spring.

I’m sure you hear, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and some of you are like, “um, what is that and what does it mean?”. Explaining it all and how to conquer it today!

The best sale on women fashion, style, and beauty for fall, winter, summer, and spring.

COSMETIC CASE

ANNIVERSARY SALE: Early Access July 13th-20th // Full Access July 21st – August 6th.

When I used to hear the word NORDSTROM, I would think money, money. money. Yes, Nordstrom has a lot of items that are expensive BUT they have a lot of items that are in the everyday budget for us. Plus, I am way more ready to buy items of quality for a discounted price.

BIG Giveaway below!

Honestly: I stopped buying clothes from Target because their quality went down the drain, their prices skyrocketed, and their return policy sucks. I still buy things every once in a while but I spend less money on my clothes with a better return policy and better quality at Nordstrom.

So what in the world is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or #NSALE? It’s a celebration of when Nordstrom was first established as a store, Nordstrom brings in brand new styles for a discounted price. Usually around 40% off. These prices last for a short time and then they go back up to full price.

So what I am saying is that you need to take advantage of the Anniversary Sale while it lasts. What I am not saying is spend money you don’t have or buy things you will not wear.
More about that concept below!

Strategy to make the
Nordstrom Sale work for you!

  1. Open a Nordstrom Card: The sale opens for Nordstrom card holders in advance! July 13th Nordstrom Cardholders get to start shopping and it opens to the public July 21st through August 6th.
  2. Buy now and return later: Nordstrom will literally take your items with no questions asked. You don’t have to worry about running out of time to try them on but you will run out of time on the price. PS Nordstrom has free shipping all the time!
  3. Buy what you need: Analyze the holes in your closet and try to fill them with the items from the sale. This is when I stock up on all my staple items:
    • Shampoo and Conditioner
    • T-shirts
    • Skin Care
    • Slips and undergarments
    • Leggings
    • Boots (if they need replacing)
    • Coats (hello 40% off right before the Fall/Winter)
    • Baby Gifts (they have the best pieces and I stock up for showers)
  4. Try something new: I use this sale to try something I wouldn’t normally wear. It’s a great time to buy a dress or blouse that is out of your comfort zone because you can’t beat the price!
  5. Order multiple sizes: Things sell out within the first couple days of the sale and they may never be restocked. Order what you think your size is and one up or one down just in case it’s not right. This ensures you will have your item vs. them selling out.
  6. Buy online: Their shipping is beyond fast, during the sale it’s a bit slower, but it still arrives at a great time. The stores can be crazy busy and not every store receives all the items listed online. Also, each store is only sent a certain number of items per style so they often sell out and won’t be restocked.
  7. Ship to Store: This is my favorite thing ever. I work full time alongside my blog, I am never home during the day to pick up my packages. You can ship them to the store and pick them up at your convenience if your home is in an area that attracts packages being stolen. Plus, if you have time you can try them on return the items that didn’t work. Fill out the address with your name and the street address of your store.

I will be sharing in store photos of items I try on this weekend, for now, you can shop the ones I am drooling over too!

Spring Style Summer Style

Jeans in the Summer Hack | not shaving secret

Wearing jeans in the Summer may seem off but sometimes I don’t want to shave my legs. Here is my hack for getting away with this style in the heat!



OUTFIT DETAILS
TOP c/o | JEANS (Similar) | HEELS | HANDBAG c/o | EARRINGS | LIPS (Snob)

Let’s be honest with each other, shaving our legs in the Summer is not the most fun we have ever had. I have super sensitive skin so I have bad razor burn 90% of the time. I avoid shaving my legs every day since those red spots are so not comfortable.

One of the ways I get away with not shaving my legs is with jeans. Mind you, I plan this so I know I will be in air conditioning during some parts of the day. Most likely on days, I am shopping or out to dinner/lunch.

How do I look Summer ready and not Winter ready in jeans? It’s all in the accessories! This bright blue and pops of pink make these jeans look bright and cheery. The white top makes a clean canvas to let the accessories do all the talking, especially since the top is an off the shoulder top which is my Summer must have style! 

This top, in particular, is a MUST! So comfy and chic. I wear it with shorts and skirts too!

Next time you are debating on squeezing in one more day between leg shaving, throw those cute jeans on!

PS if this is way too personal for you, sorry! I like to be transparent 😉

Pink Girl making Blue my Neutral

Classic style for Summer in this white dress and blue coach bag for inspiration.

Yes, this girl is making a new neutral that isn’t pink, white, or black! I am obsessing over this BLUE this season. It’s the perfect compliment to my ever growing white and pink wardrobe!

OUTFIT DETAILS
DRESS c/o | HEELS | NECKLACE | EARRINGS | HANDBAG c/o (50% off!!) | LIPS (Snob)

Do you find yourself buying handbags and shoes in only the classic neutrals: brown, black, and white? STOP! You can make fun colors work for your wardrobe and be just as versatile.

I fight this urge daily. I love my neutrals so much but try each day to add a pop that isn’t a typical neutral.

Welcome, Blue.

I am sure you have noticed my love for blue and white stripes. I love how that combination looks with pink. It got me thinking, I bet I could make blue a neutral for me in a big way. Ahem, this blue handbag is a big statement in the best way possible!

This blue has a great undertone that makes it neutral. The undertone is cool rather than warm which makes it match pretty much anything. I wear it with hot pink, yellow, green, other shades of blue, brown, white, blush pink, camo, etc. Think outside of the box.

If you want to make a statement, wear it with a monochromatic look like I have. If you want it to blend, wear it with a more mixed color pallet.

Next time you are trying to decide between the BLUE or the BLACK piece….buy the BLUE.
