A Few Classic Things I Bought from 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

A Few Classic Things I Bought from 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

I shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access this weekend and wanted to share a few of the pieces I’ve picked up from the sale so far! I personally prefer shopping online and using in-store or curbside pickup, so I was able to grab some of the items last Friday and a few more came today, which I’ll be sure to share details for, as well!

If you’ve been following along on Instagram or with previous blog posts, you know I prefer to keep my NSALE purchases classic and essential to my closet (see 12 Casual Chic #Nsale Staples, ideas for Classic #NSale Buys and more Early Access #Nsale Favorites) and that’s how I always recommend shopping the sale. Focusing on the pieces your wardrobe really needs, items that fill a void and pieces wearable across multiple seasons. The sale is a great opportunity to add key pieces to your closet but ask yourself this: Do I want to wear this now? Am I still going to want to wear this come fall?

What Is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This yearly, one-of-a-kind sale (the #Nsale) comes with some major hype. For a few select weeks during the summer, Nordstrom offers new fall fashion (in addition to summer favorites) on major sale. You'll want to take advantage of this sale if you're looking to get a head start on your fall and winter wardrobe, make a few key investment purchases or if you simply love a great deal on home, fashion and beauty.

When Is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This year, Early Access for cardholders is from Friday, July 12th at 12:30pm EST - July 19th. You can shop Early Access if you’re a Nordstrom Cardholder, which I do highly recommend. Public access to The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be July 19, 2019-August 4, 2019. Nordy Club Icons and Ambassadors can shop online starting July 11th. Prices go up August 5th!

#Nsale Tips and Strategy

I would be lying if I said there wasn’t an extreme amount of hype around this sale. For that reason, items really do sell out fast. Yet—my biggest tip is ironically not to stress trying to grab everything you see. I’ll admit I’ve gotten caught up in the mentality of “everyone’s buying this, so I need to buy this” but the past couple years, I’ve shifted. I’m no longer frantically looking through every category. I know what items my closet needs and that’s how I shop the sale.

Prioritize Your Shopping Needs

Browsing the entire sale can get overwhelming very quickly, so it’s nice to have a focus. I like to start the sale having a clear picture of what I want or need. I suggest going through your own closet (mentally or literally) and making note of what you’re lacking or what you’d like to invest in. Personally, I love grabbing a pair of new, high-quality jeans on sale and chic, everyday flats are another of the first things I look for. Maybe you’re looking for a great pair of everyday booties for the fall and winter season. Or you need a new work bag, sneakers or staple sweaters. Whatever the case is for you—start there!

Last year, I bought my favorite grey duster cardigan I honestly throw on at least a couple times a week, no matter the season. It’s truly a staple for me. A few years ago, I picked up my first pair of designer black booties and they’re still in rotation in my closet. It’s a great opportunity to invest in these key wardrobe staples.

Browse categories based on what your closet needs most.

Here are a few of the main categories I like to take advantage of: denim, bags, shoes, sweaters, outerwear. I usually start with the anchor pieces (like denim, shoes or a new bag that goes with everything), then move on to sweaters, tops (I usually look for date night or work tops) and outerwear, followed by beauty and accessories.

More Sale Tips

  • I prefer to purchase everything online and utilize their curbside or in-store pickup option when available. That way, I can buy online without the hassle and they usually have dressing rooms added to the order pickup section, so it's easy to quickly try-on items if needed.

  • Don't be afraid to place multiple orders! I love Nordstrom because of their free shipping which means I never feel like I'm wasting money or sitting on my cart to wait to ship multiple items together.

  • Things sell out very quickly, so I like to snag items I know I want, then do another round to make sure I didn't miss anything or to grab things that came back in stock. Items that sell of quickly are BP., Topshop + Barefoot Dreams cardigans, Nike sneakers, pullover sweaters.

  • Don’t hesitate to grab multiple sizes, so you can keep what works and easily send back what doesn’t. Again—free shipping!

  • Think beyond clothing! Don’t forget to check out the home department!
