It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (#NSALE) is back and it truly is one of the best sales of the year. Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale is unique in that the items they put on sale are brand new styles for the upcoming season at the best prices but only for a few weeks before they go back to their original full prices. This event always gets me so excited for the next season and craving all the fall things. Hellooooo fall fashion! I have been shopping this sales for about 4 years now and every year I learn something new.

  • DON’T just buy to buy because items are on sale. Really read the description and see if its a piece that will last. I’ll be honest and say that in years past some items I have purchased don’t last after a few washes but I know now what fabrics to look out for.
  • DO buy what I like to call “forever” pieces. Pieces that add value to your wardrobe will save you not just money but time as well. For example, shoes are such a hard category for me to determine “do I actually need these?” – because lets face it most of the time we may already have a similar pair sitting in our closet already.

Now the one thing about this sale is that it’s not available to the public (customers without a Nordstrom rewards card) until July 15-31. Whereas customers with the Nordstrom rewards card (Nordy Club) can shop as early as July 6. So before you begin shopping I would definitely check and see what date you can shop here. This year I rounded up my favorite picks in home decor, fashion, beauty and shoes from the sale below. I hope this guide helps you and happy shopping!!!



  1. 3-Piece Set – cant believe this entire set is on sale TOGETHER. I hate when stores separate the items so this a bonus for me. It’s definitely so cute and perfect those upcoming fall lounge days coming soon!
  2. Straight Leg Jeans – Madewell Jeans always come through during the NSALE. These jeans can retail up to $200 and these straight leg jeans are under $80. I love their high waisted denim and they carry a bunch of different options/sizes for tall or petite women.
  3. Sweater Dress – This one will probably sell out fast but I just love the color for fall and paired with some tall boots – it’s a yes for me!



  1. Chelsea Boot – I have a similar pair of these cuties but in the dark brown leather and I love them! Definitely wish I got the white/cream color instead.
  2. On Cloud Sneakers – I have been wanting to get a pair of the On Cloud Running shoes and this color combo is just so cute to me!
  3. OTK Boots – Last year I bought the black Steve Madden version of these OTK boots but I think I love these more. Also these have a side zipper which is easier to get on in my opinion.



  1. Bar Tool Set – We have this set at home in our bar cart and love it! The gold details are a nice touch.
  2. Record Player – I bought this record player for my Nana last year during the NSALE for Christmas and she loves it so much! It’s such a cute little piece.
  3. Tea Kettle – We have this tea pot in the all black version and so I wish I would have waited to get this one. I am loving this black + brass trend right now!



  1. Pillow Talk Lip Kit – I wear this every single day! It’s always the first thing to sell out and hard to find the entire set for Christmas. I bought this last year and it has lasted me a whole year.
  2. Nars Blush Duo – Another product I love and use in my everyday makeup routine. I love this shade so much!
  3. Tula Skincare Set – This set also sells out fast every year so if you want it get it! I don’t use all these products but I do use the facial cleanser to remove my makeup and I like it.
