Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! This is, hands-down, my very favorite sale of the year. The Anniversary Sale is the NEW fall fashion for men, women, and children at incredible prices – this sets it apart from other Nordstrom sales that are used to clear out the current season’s merchandise. It’s also a rare opportunity to get some HOT deals on never-on-sale baby brands (those will be up soon).

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public from July 20th to August 5th, but Nordstrom Cardmembers get to shop the sale eight days early starting on July 12th (today!). (If you want to sign up for a Nordstrom Card, you can do that here. You will be able to start shopping immediately, plus you will get a $40 note if you make a purchase the day you join!). Prices go up August 6th.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog 2018

You can browse the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview catalog here. The items in the catalog will be available during Early Access and restocked when the sale goes live to the public. Merchandise moves very quickly though, so don’t wait to order if you see something you want! Nordstrom has free returns, and you can always send something back later if you change your mind.

A few tips for the sale…if there is something you really want but it’s out of stock in your size, buy it in any size. Then take it back to Nordstrom when their merchandise is restocked and exchange it for the size you need. It doesn’t work every time, but I’ve had a lot of luck with this method in the past. Also, if you have any question on sizes, just order the item you’re after in two sizes and return the one that doesn’t fit! Again, Nordstrom has free returns!

Below are ten things I loved during my first glance at the sale. I’ll be sharing more favorite for women over the next few weeks.

1 |  CAPRI BLUE SIGNATURE JAR CANDLE (Retail: $30 Sale: $19.90) – My all-time favorite candle! I can’t even count how many I’ve gone through over the years and I never tire of the scent.

Capri Blue Volcano


2 |  ZELLA MEDITATE HIGH WAIST CROP LEGGINGS (Retail: $55 Sale: $35.90) – I never shop the Anniversary Sale without getting myself a few new pairs of Zella leggings. I prefer the high waist ones for extra tummy control. Zella Meditate High Waist Crop Leggings


3 |  HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO SATIN DUFFEL BAG (Retail: $80 Sale: $52.90) – Absolutely in love with the color of this duffel bag perfect for weekend getaways. And you can’t get the price!

4 |  THREAD & SUPPLY BRANDON FLEECE JACKET (Retail: $88 Sale: $58.90) – During last year’s sale I was so tempted by the pullover version of this jacket (on sale again this year) and ended up regretting not buying it all winter!  I’m definitely gonna get on this time around, as soon as I can decide between the pullover and jacket…thoughts?

5 |  HUNTER ORIGINAL TALL RAIN BOOT (Retail: $150 Sale: $99) – This one is for you guys because I already have a pair of these! Definitely grab these at this price if you want a pair of classic Hunter Boots. It’s rare to find them in a classic color at a price this low.



6 |  MADEWELL RYDER CARDIGAN (Retail: $98 Sale: $64.90) – The perfect fall staple, and apparently I have a thing for this color.

7 |  TREASURE & BOND JERSEY ROPE THROW (Retail: $99 Sale: $65.90) – Absolutely obsessed with this chunky rope throw for snuggling with this winter. It’d make an adorable gift too! Available in five colors.

8 |  CASLON ROUNDED V-NECK TEE (Retail: $25 Sale: $17.90) – I include this every year because I stock up on this tee every year! It’s perfect for lounging around the house and layering under sweaters.


9 |  THE BEACHWAVER PRO 1 1/4-INCH ROTATING CURLING IRON (Retail: $199 Sale: $133) – I have heard people rave about this thing but have never been able to bite the bullet at the $199 price point. This one is tempting me…

10 |  VANS CLASSIC SLIP-ON SNEAKERS (Retail: $59.95 Sale: $39.90) – The last thing I need is another pair of Vans sneakers, but I can’t get over this gingham print. I’m going to get these to finish out the summer!


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access runs through July 19th. The sale opens to the public on July 20th and runs through August 5th.
