The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially here! If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you get to shop TODAY! If you’re having FOMO, you can register for a card here. Trust me, it’s worth it for this sale event alone! You can also earn triple points, and apply them to the sale. (PS: If you apply, you’ll most likely get approved immediately, and your card will automatically be stored in your account for online purchases. You can even use your ID to use CC in store, too!) Public access begins on Monday, so no worries if you’re not ready to pull the plug! I’m a Nordstrom groupie, so naturally — I caved.
It’s currently 3:30am, and I’m pulling an all-nighter sharing the best finds of the sale! A few tips/tricks to shopping the sale: This year, I’m investing in staples. I did a poll on my IG, and over 80% said the same! While trendy pieces are fun, they’re not exactly in my budget right now. I need pieces that will work with my postpartum body for years to come (especially since we want more kids down the line). Here’s what I’m shopping:
*Make sure to visit later today for updates! I will be including more picks/finds as they come and organizing everything via category so it’s easy for you to shop. Here’s what I found below (so far!) I’m also going to Nordstrom for some fun try-on hauls, and taking some OOTD looks so you can see everything in action. Make sure to follow along on IG!
- Booties (since my foot grew an entire size during pregnancy)
- Over the knee boots: Again, none of my shoes fit so I’m going all in on the boots!
- Cardigans: Because, oversized cardigans will always be my BFF (even when I’m 90)
- Cashmere sweater: This Halogen Cashmere sweater is what dreams are made of. Word on the street is this was the first piece to sell out yesterday! Get it quick!
- Statement earrings: OK, while these J. Crew beauties aren’t necessarily a ‘staple’ — they’re super fun. I’ve been eyeing them ever since the catalog released. You, too?
- Denim: I’m not going designer denim, since my body is still recovering from childbirth, ha. But I’m definitely scooping up these Calson crop flare jeans. Under $50! Here’s a full list of the sale denim, including the BEST — Frame.
- Coats: I always take advantage of coats during this sale. You can score some serious swag for a crazy discount. I’m definitely picking up this cute
- Beauty: I’m a beauty junkie these days. The beauty section is also a great/safe place to start on your holiday shopping for friends/family. They always have exclusive gift sets that have the prettiest packaging! I’m also eyeing this T3 hair dryer since mine is getting super old! So many of my friends swear by it.
