Helpful Tips For Making The Most Of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Now is the perfect time to start shopping for fall and save tons of money, AND help you plan & create a strategic wardrobe that you love when fall actually arrives. 

  • Use this time during the slower, summer months to evaluate your closet. Access what worked for last fall/winter & what didn’t. Then get rid of what you didn’t wear or like. Here are some closet clean out tips to help you access, purge & organize what you have, before you shop.
  • Figure out your budget. You always want to go into this sale knowing & sticking to a budget that works for you and your family! Otherwise you will find yourself over buying and possibly feeling remorseful! 
  • I Strategically stock up on wardrobe essentials like premium denimbootsjacketssweatersbasics, and a pair of statement shoes (this is what I invest in every year) to help me cultivate a purposeful wardrobe come fall. These are the types of items that I wear day-in and day-out, so they are what I want to fill my closet with.
