The day is finally here! I’ts the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’ve been saving money for this sale & let me tell you, I don’t think I saved enough! 😉 ha! I shared a preview of the sale earlier this week here & even that doesn’t even do it justice! There are SO many super cute things on MAJOR discount! Normally I focus on things I want to grab for Fall / Winter. BUT, there are lots of things that are cute for now! I don’t know where you live, but it’s still going to be warm for a while where I’m at. So I am going to get lots of good use out of things like this staple tee and this ruffled romper before the weather cools off. But don’t get me wrong, I am definitely still grabbing lots of things for cooler weather! Essentially, I am buying what I need for the next 6+ months. 

Since this sale features all NEW arrivals it’s the best time to get the newest trends for the next season at the absolute best prices! For example, this is the best deal you will find on Tory Burch boots for sure. And I thought last year’s version was kind of cute but holy cow, I LOVE this year’s style! In addition to all of the top picks from the sale, I’m including 3 tips for shopping today. These are things I’ve learned the hard way from shopping the sale the past 4 years! 


I would say my biggest tip for shopping the sale today is to grab the super popular items that sell out fast! Last year there was a top that I didn’t get the first day and when I went to buy it a few days later, it was sold out. And it NEVER came back in stock either. I still think about how many cute outfits I could have worn with it! 😉 lol I think several of these items above are going to be incredibly popular and sell out. The big ticket items like Tory Burch boots and AG jeans plus affordable staples like this classic cardigan and this striped tee will be the items that sell out!

Tip #2: BUY 2 SIZES

Second major tip: If you love an item but aren’t sure of a size {jeans & shoes especially!}, buy TWO sizes! The biggest perk to shopping at Nordstrom is their free return policy. You don’t want to guess a size, be wrong, go to buy it in the other size only to find it’s sold out! Grab both sizes now, try them on at home, and easily return the wrong size. [Nordstom will give you a free mail label & you just have to drop it off at the post office!] It doesn’t cost you anything and it ensures you get what you want in the right size!


Third major tip: Think long term! Of course there are lots of ‘fun‘ items that are super trendy included in the sale. Believe me, I bought things like this polka dot jumpsuit. ha! But think about the items you will wear most often and for the longest amount of time. For example, I am in love with this Kendra Scott necklace. It will match almost any outfit and can be worn in any season! I also think things like tennis shoes are great to buy now because you literally wear sneakers year round! One last item I will point out that is a great long term purchase: this face wash. I bought it during last year’s sale and I LOVE it. That bottle lasted me nearly 9 months!

Well I will quit babbling & let you babes get to shopping! Let me know what your favorites are! xo

    Totally agree about thinking long term when buying – the nordstrom sale is when I stock up on nice stuff I'll wear all year long!

  2. I always think about long term when buying anything. I wear business casual for my day job so my "nice" clothes get worn daily, so something that I wear to work needs to with stand daily life.
