We are here with a special weekend post for you guys. By now you’ve probably heard ALL about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s probably all over your social media accounts and on your favorite blogs. We get it…it can be overwhelming (& maybe even slightly annoying?) to see all of this shopping chatter all over the place.
But there truly are some great deals to be had, and while we’re not huge shoppers (our closets are just too small!) we do always tend to pick up a few classic & quality pieces for the fall season. So as we dive into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here on the DIY Playbook, we aren’t encouraging you to go out and clear the bank account. Instead, we’re all about intentionally choosing a few pieces that you need AND on sale.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Instead of a typical end of the season sale, the Nordstrom sale is actually a sale on all of the items currently coming out in the fall. So everything is new and showcases the trends you’ll be seeing over the next few months.
And even though it’s July…these are all deals on fall staples (like our favorite Hunter Boots!). Think boots, jeans, sweaters. It can be hard to get in the mindset of cooler weather, but it actually gets us kinda excited for the brisk fall days ahead! We both go through our closets and make a note of what we will need for the season ahead…that way we go in with a plan of attack.
What’s Early Access?
Right now is “Early Access” for all Nordstrom card holders. If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop the sale right now. Or if your friend/mom/sister has a card…you can sweetly ask to shop together to get your hands on the deals right now (#sneakysneaky).
If not, you can wait until it opens to everyone on July 21st. Things sell out fast, so having a gameplan is key! The sale will then go until August 6th.
What We’re Loving
Like we said, this is an awesome time to stock up on staples for your wardrobe. We aren’t usually people who buy just to buy, so we try to be really intentional when shopping this sale. Which can be super hard since there are some great deals to be had! We’re each assessing what we need this fall and making a specific game plan so we only buy what we need.
These waterproof shoes from Blondo seem perfect for getting through the cold months in style! Also can’t go wrong with Hunter boots for rainy days and they’re a great deal at $130! And these OTK boots have us hoping we can pull of that trendy look this fall (I mean can you even believe the detailing on those? Heart eyes all the way!)
Holy smokes…are your eyes crossing just yet?! We know it is overwhelming, but hopefully this is a start to try and help you find some items that you just might want to add to your fall shopping list! We did buy a few items on the first day of the sale, so next week we will definitely share our finds right here on the blog. Plus we’ll be sharing dressing room details like sizing suggestions based on what we tried on.
Until then…happy shopping (& saving)!
