Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018: Everything you need to know

It’s almost that time of year again my friends, for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! *Insert red dancing emoji, confetti, and everything else happy you can think of!* If you’ve been following me for over a year, you know this is legit my favorite time of year. First of all because this is a sale like any other sale (I will explain why shortly), and second of all, because I LOVE putting together Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content for you guys! I seriously think it is a BLAST!

So, let’s go over the basics first. What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Like I said, this is a sale unlike any other. Most sales mark down old merchandise…this sale allows you to shop brand new merchandise that hasn’t even hit the floors yet (think your entire new fall wardrobe), for majorly discounted prices. It’s just arrived fall styles for limited-time sale prices! The #NSale includes brand new products in every category: women’s clothing, boots, handbags, beauty exclusives, fitness apparel, menswear…and MORE.

So what do you need to know?

Believe me when I say: things sell out FAST. If possible, you definitely want to get early access to shop the sale starting on July 12 before everyone else can. You can get early access by opening up a Nordstrom credit card. It’s super easy, no annual fee, and there’s tons of benefits. It’s my favorite credit card I own lol. You should apply now if you want to get early access to the sale!

Other important dates:

July 12-19, all cardmembers get to shop Early Access in stores and online.

July 20-August 5, biggest sale of the year opens to the public.

Prices go back up August 6.

Which products am I freaking out about?

Nordstrom released their anniversary sale catalog yesterday and I may or may not have gotten chills as I went through it LOL pathetic I know. I told you I geek out over this. Before I tell you which products I can’t wait to shop this year, let me share some of best purchases from the #NSale last year.










Literally every single item pictured above was on the #NSale last year and all such good purchases. Some of my favorite purchases were AG Jeans, Topshop Cardigans, my Madewell Tote, Rebecca Minkoff bag, the two pair of Nikes I got, Vince Camuto booties, barefoot dreams cardigan…and last but definitely not least…the rag & bone booties I splurged on which were worth every single penny. [Side note those pics really make me miss my hair extensions lol].

This year, I’m really excited about some of the handbags I saw in the catalog (definitely eyeing that AllSaints tote), I saw so many tennis shoes I want, fall booties, workout clothes, some of the beauty exclusives, and of course…cozy cardigans! I’m also excited to check out the baby stuff this year with our little girl on the way!

This is the perfect time to stock up on the hottest trends for fall, amazing basics, or even start buying gifts now, all on sale!

So get ready!

I will be doing tons of posts around the #NSale. My top picks overall, best of each category (ie: fitness, beauty, shoes, etc), and any other requests you guys might have! This truly is the best sale of the year and I want you guys to get the most bang for your buck as possible! So I’ll do the work for you and try everything on – Tell you how stuff fits, how the quality is, etc. Y’all let me know though in the comments below if there are any specific blog posts or content you’d like to see around the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
