This post has been updated with 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks!
You all, the day has finally arrived!!! It’s the early access Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I couldn’t be more excited! This is hands down my favorite sale of the year. You can come back and check out all my top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks, which I’ll be updating daily over here. I’m excited to share tips with you about how to best shop this sale. So, let’s get started!
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks
Okay, call me crazy, but I stayed up until midnight to bring you the best sale picks! For those of you who know me, I’m usually in bed by 9, so this is a big deal! Here are my top items by category:
The bell sleeve cardigan was one I thought was cute, but felt I had to try it on in person to make sure the sleeves fit. I’m so glad I went to the store this morning to try it, because it’s even cuter in person! This one is selling out FAST! There were only two left in store, and luckily there was an xs, which I worried about being too tight, but ended up being the perfect fit. So, I highly recommend sizing down in this if you want a perfect fit. Or, size up for a looser fit. The cardigan also comes in a rich bluish grey tone.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the most anticipated sale of the year! This sale allows you to shop 2018 fall items at a discounted price before everything goes on sale to the public. You might be thinking, fall clothing already?! I know, it’s something I usually try not to think about, because fall always means “back to school”. But, this is one time when I am okay thinking about fall clothing during my summer break because the deals are THAT good!
When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The sale is open to everyone July 20th through August 5th. If you are a Nordstrom credit or debit card holder, you have early access July 12th-July 19th. If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you can still apply for one and get early access to this sale. I personally own the Nordstrom debit card. It’s a great option, because all the money I spend comes directly from my bank account, which holds me accountable in my spending! In my opinion, the perks are just as good as the Nordstrom credit card, so you can choose the best option for your lifestyle.
Why Should I Get Early Access?
Because this is the biggest sale of the year, items sell out quickly! So, you wan’t to be first in line to make sure you get the sizes you need and the items you want. I learned this the hard way two years ago. I watched a pair of boots throughout early access and by the time I was able to access the public sale, the boots were all sold out! Last year, I got smart, enrolled for the Nordstrom card, and got a the same brand of boots right away. Within DAYS, they sold out!
What Kind of Deals Will I Find?
Everything you need for fall 2018. This is the best time to stock up on tees, denim, ankle boots, cardigans. Check out the Nordstrom Anniversary catalog to get an idea of what trends you’ll find during the sale. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale isn’t just limited to clothing. Save on home decor, accessories and shoes as well!
I always like to purchase high-end designer items during this sale, because it’s unlikely you’ll find another deal this good! Last year, I purchased a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots for half the price! These boots were worth every penny. I can wear them all day long and they look great with skinny pants and denim.
What Should I Buy During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Which of your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks should I purchase first?

As far as what you should choose first from my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks: I think it’s best to go right for a pair of denim, a basic tee, a cardigan and boots. These will be staples for your fall wardrobe and can be worn together or easily paired with other items to create the perfect fall outfit.
