Today is one of my very favorite days of the whole year – the first day of Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Now I know this sounds dramatic, but you can truly get the best deals of the year during this sale. Just the other night I was at dinner with a friend and mentioned that this sale was coming up. She laughed and said that I’ve been obsessed with this sale since she can remember. And it’s true! I used to go the first day of the sale with my mom for back-to-school shopping when I was little and haven’t missed a year since.

So here’s what you need to know. Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens every year in late July. Unlike other sales, it is all of their BRAND NEW fall merchandise for the whole family, plus home goods and baby gear! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens one week early to Nordstrom credit and debit card holders, beginning on July 14th and then to the public on July 22nd. (You can read all about the benefits and apply for a Nordstrom card right here. I’ve had a card for nearly ten years now because I love love love my Nordstrom Notes!) Whether shopping early or shopping when it opens to the public next week, you can work on your game plan by browsing their catalog right here. Oh! And there’s always free shipping and free returns all the time at Nordstrom which is just the best!

I’ll be rounding up some of my favorites from the sale over the next few weeks, starting right now with those sweet babies! A few of the items I’m most excited about in the gear department are the ERGObaby 360 Baby Carrier in Total Balck for $106.90 (warning: high sell-out risk), Freshly Picked Moccasins, and Baby Bling Knotted Bows! And I always look forward to the annual sale pricing on my favorite Little Giraffe products (they are the absolute best shower gifts!) and the exclusive prints aden + anais does for Nordstrom every year.
