Tips For Shopping The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It is almost that time again…my favorite sale of the entire year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! I want to help you easily shop & navigate this sale (it can be very overwhelming), plus share helpful tips for creating a budget & plan. That way you’re investing in the right pieces for YOU this fall, and not just buying “all the things”, you see everyone sharing & buying!

Things may look a little different this year (the sale is normally in early July) and you might be hard pressed for time with back to school happening at the same time! That is why I’m taking so much time & effort to help you simplify, and navigate this amazing sale, so you get what you want/need for fall/winter, with the least of amount of time & effort.

I will be highlighting the best of the sale here on the blog (as I have done the past 4 years), on Instagram in stories. I will be sharing an epic in-store try-on this year (in IG Stories/IGTV, AND my new YouTube channel) plus more at-home try-on’s featuring fall essentials, AND maternity/nursing friendly options, PLUS kids fall essentials as well! I want to help you feel less overwhelmed (there are thousands of items on sale) and shop for the pieces you need to cultivate a purposeful fall wardrobe.

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. Use my 5 day closet clean out challenge 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.
