If you’re a Nordstrom credit card holder then you have early access to shop the biggest sale of the year. Don’t take this responsibility lightly. It’s an opportunity to stock up on all new items for the upcoming fall season and trust me, items sell out fast! I rounded up my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks, plus a short list of the things I like to buy during the sale every year.

I’ve gone a little shopping crazy the last couple of years so I’m going to do my best and only get things I need (and maybe a handbag).


I never invested in denim until I bought my first pair of PAIGE and AG Jeans two years ago during the sale. I’m really impressed with the quality of both brands and how they hold their shape after going through the wash. I don’t know if its my age or what but I do prefer high waist denim and I will definitely be stocking up on a pair this time around.

Boots and Booties

Whether it’s ankle boots, tall boots or rain boots, I always make sure to check out the selection because I feel like I’m always on the hunt for boots. Sam Edelman, Marc Fisher, and Hunter are my favorite “high end” brands but BP. Shoes (Nordstrom’s in-house brand) are very affordable if you want to spend less than $100. Click here to shop shoes.

Athleisure and Intimates

That may be a weird category combo but basically, I will never wear a Victoria’s Secret bra ever again. Two years ago I decided to purchase a Natori bra and my entire world changed. No creases from the underwire, super comfortable to wear all day and perfect to wear underneath basically everything. And I always love to stock up on comfortable sweatshirts, leggings and shirts for every day loungewear.

Sweaters, Cardigans & Tees

I usually avoid buying trendy clothes during the sale (as tempting as it may be) and stock up on comfortable tees, cozy cardigans and timeless sweaters. BP., Caslon, Halogen, Lush, and Madewell are my go-to brands for these types of pieces. And typically, they are all under $100.

Beauty and Hair Tools

In the beauty category, I like to restock on old favorites and splurge on gift sets (for myself and for the holiday gift giving season). I’m also planning to buy some Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Stay tuned for another post in which I’ll share my favorite Nordstrom beauty buys under $100.

Handbags & Accessories 

Last year I didn’t see any handbags that caught my eye; however, I spotted this gorgeous Marc Jacobs Box Crossbody Bag in the Nordstrom catalog and I can’t stop thinking about it. I think the gold color way is gorgeous. If you love handbags like me, the Nordstrom sale always has some great deals on contemporary handbags like Tory Burch, Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff too. There’s also a bunch of Kendra Scott jewelry included in this year’s sale as well!

Early access ends July 18th and then the sale is open to the public July 19th, so now is the best time to shop the sale. Happy shopping!
