I always do the biggest chunk of my fall shopping during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I get 40-50% of my fall wardrobe during the sale! And I’m still wearing tons of the pieces I picked up at last year’s sale. Unlike most sales, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has all of this season’s pieces at crazy discounts and it’s across all categories – beauty, clothes, accessories, shoes, and stuff for the whole family. It’s hands down the best time to shop this year, so I wanted to share 3 things you need to know now before the sale starts!

Become a Nordstrom Member ASAP!

The Anniversary Sale opens to Nordstrom Cardholders on July 12th, and it doesn’t open to the rest of the public until July 20th. A lot of pieces sell out during that time, so it really pays off to sign up as a member. If you are on the fence, chances are you will end up signing up at some point so better to get first dibs when the sale starts on the 12th. Even if you don’t use it very often, you’ll be glad you have it to access the sale.  If you haven’t yet, you can apply here.

When in doubt, pull the trigger.

No matter when you start shopping, pieces are always moving quickly so when in doubt, always check out! Nordstrom is the easiest store ever for returns, so if you get a piece and it doesn’t work out it’s beyond easy to return it. I’m guilty of always adding pieces to my cart and then getting distracted by something else, and when I come back to check out half of the pieces are sold out (and it’s always my favorite picks!)

It’s not over til it’s over.

Nordstrom will randomly add new pieces or restock during the sale, so don’t forget to keep checking until it ends on August 5th! I’ll be sharing some of my favorites when the sale launches on Thursday (I got a sneak peek last week – can’t wait to share some of my favorite outfits!) and I’ll be sharing my favorites continuously throughout the sale, from new additions to restocks, and more.

Below are a few pieces I already have my eye on! You can also look at the catalog here.


If you’ve been saving up for an investment piece, this is definitely the time to buy. I wear my Michele watches all the time and this one is gorgeous, and is 33% of which adds up. Lagos is another great option for high-end jewelry and they have a few great pieces included in the sale as well.


Over-the-knee boots are one of the biggest styles every season, and I love the fresh update to this pair with a pointed toe and block heel. It looks really high-end and is over 35% off and under $100. This is one of those pieces that will go really quickly.


I have a nude pair of Vince mules that I have been wearing for years and they are close to the end. I have been looking everywhere so something similar and SOOO excited to see these! They are super versatile and you can (and will) wear them with anything.

These sneakers in white are the very top of my list for the sale! Vince’s shoes are always so comfortable and I love the elastic detail on top!


I always stock up on sneakers during the Anniversary Sale. Obsessed with this one that comes in both cream and black and there are lots of other styles in my favorite brands that will be included in the sale.


One of my favorite parts of the Anniversary Sale is all of the accessories. They are the perfect way to update your wardrobe for the season with some current style. Love this panama hat!


I love all of T3’s hair styling tools. They are super lightweight and their blow-dryers always dry my hair super fast. Love this chic color combo!


I’ve heard amazing things about this toning kit and can’t wait to try it!


Plaid will be even bigger this season than last year, and this one is a great way to embrace the plaid. Love the length!


With how much I travel, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect travel bag. Cody always tries to get me to squeeze everything into a carry-on, and I’m obsessed with this duffel and the perfect extra space for everything I couldn’t fit in my carry-on suitcase haha. 


Topshop is always a hit during the Anniversary sale and this cardigan is one of those pieces that I think will fly. Love the knit structure and the longline hem which we are seeing tons of this season.

Who else is so giddy for the sale to launch!? Have you guys scoped out some of your favorite pieces – would love to hear what you have your eye on!

XX, Christine

My favorite pieces (you look amazing in everything) are the pink duffel, flashback adidas, and tweed vans. They looks so comfy and cute! I follow you on Instagram and I find your posts and this outfit blog really inspiring to try new styles! I want to try a more grown-up look and nail that business look so I love the business casual pieces you’ve introduced. I’m a big fan. Thank you for your hard work! 🙂
