Let the madness begin!! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 begins today! I had the opportunity to preview and shop the sale in store yesterday, and I loved what I saw! You can see my try on sesh on my Instagram Stories. The sale can be overwhelming, so I’ve curated my favorites to share with you.
This sale is always top notch each and every year, but this year is probably my favorite. Below are my Nordstrom Anniversary sale picks, plus my predictions of items that will sell out (i.e- the ones that you will want to snag quickly), how to shop the sale first and make sure to read to the bottom of the post to enter to win one of THREE (3) $100 Nordstrom gift cards to use during the sale!!
Current Elliott – The Anniversary sale is always one of my favorite times to buy jeans. And I LOVE these! They fit great, the released / frayed hem is such a fun touch and I love the wash.
Rag & Bone – I have the older version of these and have gotten so much wear out of them. When I tried these on yesterday I loved the fit and loved the updated version even more than the older ones.
Articles of Society – Good basic dark denim at a fab price.
BP. – I love shopping the sale for basic tops that I can wear now and later. This BP. top is such a comfy basic. Love the price too, it’s under $12 during the sale. It comes in 10 colors.
Rag & Bone – This sweater/sweatshirt style top is super comfortable. I love the open back detailing. It comes in black and white.
Topshop – This Topshop sweatshirt is not something I would normally pick out or try on, but my sister talked me into it. I love the yellow color. And it is so soft and cozy. It would work well with jeans, skirts and leggings. I tried the sweatshirt on with this suede skirt and loved the outfit. It made for a fun unexpected combination. I also tried it on with this denim skirt (not part of the sale but one of my top summer items) and loved them together too. It also comes in light pink and red too.
Rebecca Taylor – This soft feminine top is just so pretty. It comes in black and white.
Socialite – Love this cute knotted t-shirt dress! It comes in black and grey!
Alice + Olivia – This flow-y flowery feminine dress has a vintage vibe that I’m loving.
Leith – Can’t go wrong with a sleek midi dress, and I love the grey lilac color of this one. It also comes in black too.
BlankNYC – I’ve been wanting a suede mini skirt and love the a-line fit of this one. I have BlankNYC suede jackets and the quality of their faux suede is really good for the price point.
Leith – This plaid skort is a fall staple. And I love that it’s a skort and that it has tie front detailing.
Jen 7 – This raw hem denim pencil skirt is similar to the one that I wore shopping yesterday, but at a fab price.
Boots & Shoes
Stuart Weitzman – The Anniversary sale shoes are always a hot commodity! I’m a fan of the camel color and of the kitten heel of these chic slouchy boots. They also come in black. Stuart Weitzman boots typically sell out fast during this sale, so act quickly.
Sam Edelman – These knee-high boots have a chunky heel and come in black, caramel and red.
Nike – The elemental rose/gunmetal smoke color has me sold. But it also comes in two other color ways.
Leith – Cardigans are always popular during this sale. And they sell out fast. I love this ribbed one that comes in five colors.
Caslon – I love this mixed stitch long cardi. There was a similar open cardi in the sale two years ago that was really popular.
Topshop – This cable knit cardigan is my prediction for the “it” cardi of the Nordstrom sale. It comes in four colors.
Coats & Jackets
Caslon – The Anniversary sale is full of coats and jackets. I personally like to buy a new one each year to update to the most current styles and trends. This faux shearling jacket is so soft and cozy! A winter must-have in my book. And the neutral color means it pairs well with everything.
*Note that the Anniversary Sale Early Access dates for cardholders starts July 12th and ends July 19th. The sale opens to the public on July 20th and runs through August 5th.
How to get Early Access to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
If you want to shop items first, before the sale is open to the public, you will have to have a Nordstrom card for Early Access. You can grab yours here. And you will get $40 to spend at the sale for signing up! No need to wait for your card in the mail. And Nordstrom offers a Debit card (that links directly to your bank account…i.e- no interest) that also gets you Early Access to the sale and the same $40 bonus Nordstrom Note…I love and highly recommend this option.
