2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Best Buys for Home!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Best Home Buys

If you're a fan of getting home decor on deep discount, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is not one to miss. Let's face it, home items can be pricey and, personally, I like to always have a promo code, gift card, shop at Home Goods (obviously), or take advantage of a sale to snag the perfect pieces for our apartment. 

I've been checking out all of the home items the Anniversary Sale has to offer and wanted to round up some of the best buys below. The rug category alone is giving me major home inspiration! Prices go back UP August 6th!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Under $50 Favorites

nordstrom anniversary sale under $50

Columns from left to right:

One: Brixton Hat | Treasure & Bond Silk Scarf | Make & Model Sleep Shorts | Nordstrom Pajamas

Two: Zella Sweatshirt | Yummi Leggings | Cathy's Concept Passport Holder 

Three: Felina Bodysuit | Leith Sweater | BP. Cardigan

I hope your week is starting off well! If you're still shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I wanted to take a moment to share some of my under $50 finds. Again, I am always looking for pieces that actually add value to my everyday life and wardrobe and (for me) I think all of these pieces really do that. I highly encourage you to shop the sale that way, as well!

I live in comfy knits a lot of the time and I love how several of these pieces can be worn with your favorite denim or a pair of leggings like this moto style

I think a bodysuit is so flattering (more flattering than I initially thought!) and this henley style is super popular. The grey is selling out quickly but it also comes in classic black! I usually size UP in bodysuits and love how you can wear them with high rise jeans, shorts or dressed up with skirts. These are so great for layering in fall and winter, as well. 

I've bought a couple of the BP. hooded cardigans in past #nsale's and I highly recommend snagging one if you're a cardigan lover. Or even if you're not! This style might be the very first cardigan I ever really looooved

I think this passport and luggage tag collection is such a great practical piece and would make a perfect gift. I love the classic brown leather luggage tone. 

I snagged this straw fedora hat and love the fit plus how I can wear it now and into fall. I got a size small but honestly have no idea how to even begin describing "fit" or sizing for a hat. I did read some reviews on other hats from the same brand mentioning it runs slightly large. 

You can also check out my other posts for sizing details on what I've purchased HERE, my Early Access favorites HERE and how I shop the sale HERE.

I hope you're not sick of hearing about the sale yet but I'm sorry if you are. 🙈Prices go back UP August 6th!

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Anniversary Sale Details

  • July 20-August 5, sale is open to everyone, with or without a Nordstrom card!

This BP. Varsity sweater shown above is still in stock and I LOVE the relaxed fit and super-soft fabric. The color is a little brighter in person but I think will be pretty into fall. I love it now paired with cutoff shorts. Wearing an xs, it runs roomy. 

This Brixton straw fedora is also still in stock and just $44! Wearing a small. 

free people cream pullover
red off the shoulder sweater

This Free People pullover is still in stock in varying sizes and colors. I'm wearing an xs which has been selling out but I think I could just as easily get away with a small. I love the relaxed, effortless vibe and I literally live in these. You can wear them both on and off the shoulder for a totally different vibe. FYI my white skirt is old from Topshop but I linked the perfect dupe.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Purchases

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Happy weekend, friends! I wanted to take a moment to share more of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases with you. Not everything in this post is from the #nsale but my goal was to show you how you can wear some of your fall-ready pieces now. So I styled them with some summer favorites and basics. 

I want to note that I really only bought things that are classic or fill a void in my wardrobe. I didn't buy any boots because I don't need them (thanks, California) but please feel free to reach out if YOU personally are looking for anything specific and I'm happy to help.

BP. Varsity stripe sweater (size xs) - this I LOVE. This is the 'brown cattail kenzie stripe' and the stripe is a bit more blue in person but I love the twist on a classic piece. It's super soft, really flattering and works well both tucked and untucked. I'm wearing a size small. I also love this Brixton straw fedora that the sales lady at Nordstrom so kindly helped me pick out. It's a great style for every season!

grey duster cardigan

grey duster cardigan white slip dress

Treasure & Bond knit duster (one size fit) - if you don't have a grey duster cardigan in your collection, are you even living?? 😂But seriously, in all honesty, this style is a must. I somehow always feel a bit chicer when I throw one on. They're perfect over anything but I always adore a pairing with white. This one has a slouchy fit but isn't overly roomy to the point where it's unflattering. It has some wool in it, so it has a slight "scratch" but I wouldn't say it's itchy!

The first look is with this $11.90 #nsale BP. raw edge tee (size xs) and the second is with this amazing Everlane slip dress which is NOT a sale item. 

nordstrom anniversary sale
thermal top and skirt outfit

Socialite thermal henley top (size small) - This one will be gone quickly but hopefully will come back in stock. This is the oatmeal but it comes in several other colors. It's super soft and I love the fit. I sized up for something slightly more relaxed through the midsection but if you wanted it to be fitted, I'd get your normal size or size down. It's lightweight and perfect for tucking and will be easy to layer through fall and winter. 

wrap sweater

Leith wrap sweater (size small) - This is easily one of my favorite sale purchases. I'm a big big fan of wrap/faux wrap styles and I adore how so soft and effortless this sweater is. The slouchy fit is flattering and I love that it's lightweight enough to wear now. I already wore this to work and then again with cutoff shorts—so versatile! This also comes in several colors and this is the 'tan etherea heather.' I have my eye on the white, too! 

free people pullover

Free People pullover (size xs) - If you buy one thing from this sale, let this be it. Seriously. This is last year's version (the sale version is a v-neck) and it's the most comfortable thing I own. It has an oversized yet flattering fit. If you're in between sizes, I would size down. I bought it in red, another one in ivory and will probably go back for the black!

anniversary sale cashmere wrap

Halogen cashmere wrap - This is a bit of a splurge but is one of my favorite classic, chic and timeless pieces that makes me feel like I'll wear and use it for years. It's 100% cashmere and also comes in a two-tone gray. It's basically like a big blanket scarf but you can wear it as a wrap, half cardigan or scarf—or even just use it as a blanket! It's beyond soft and worth every penny.

nordstrom anniversary sale shoes

I only snagged two pairs of shoes this season and they are both versatile, effortless and go with everything.

Vince Darlington flat (size 8.5) - I am a huge fan of Vince flats. I have a couple pairs that I've also purchased on sale and the quality, fit and wearability is amazing. These come in several colors but I can never resist a nude. I am in between an 8 and 8.5 and sized UP!

Madewell Devon mule (size 8.5) - I love the heel height on these (just 2") and the comfort level is insane. Again, I'm in between sizes and the half size up (8.5) fits great.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Try-Ons

Well, I bought a bunch of things online to pick up in-store but Nordstrom has been so busy, I'm still waiting to receive confirmation my items are ready. Moral of the story: free shipping always wins. 

I still wanted to share a few of my initial try-on's while I'm waiting for my purchases to come. I will also link what I bought at the end of this post. I really did try to focus on classic staples and things that filled a void in my wardrobe. I always have a hard time finding long-sleeve tops for the office, so I grabbed a few easy knits and I can never resist a nude shoe. I cannot WAIT for these Vince flats.

Anniversary Sale Try-On's

I fell in love with this Halogen cashmere wrap which is beyond soft, the perfect classic color and really feels timeless, effortless and chic. I love how it's incredibly versatile. You can wear it as a cardigan, wrap or scarf! This is one-size. 

nordstrom anniversary sale hat

I grabbed this $44.90 Brixton straw fedora while I was in-store and it's so adorable. I love how it's a piece I can actually wear now. I'm wearing a small in the hat. I’m wearing these Madewell jeans.

nordstrom anniversary sale blanknyc jacket

If you've lusted for a BlankNYC suede moto jacket, this year's version is so good. I think the fit is a little less bulky than the one I already own and the green color feels cool and casual. I'm wearing an xs. 

wrap sweater anniversary sale

I love a good wrap top. This Leith wrap sweater has been in and out of stock but comes in a bunch of colors. This is the "Tan Etherea Heather" and I adore the effortless fit. I'm wearing a small for a slightly looser silhouette.

I tried on this Halogen cardigan by accident but I really love the color and fit. I can see living in this paired with leggings and sneakers through fall and winter. This is a wool & cashmere mix, so definitely cozy and warm.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Guide

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog.jpg

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog

It's officially that time of year! Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this Thursday, July 12th and while I'm sure many of you have seen, heard and shopped the sale in the past, I wanted to take a moment to share a few details + how I shop.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? And why is everyone telling me I need to shop it?

This once-a-year, one-of-a-kind sale is a bit different than other sales you'll find. Typically, brands will mark down end-of-season items. On the contrary, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale releases BRAND NEW items at up to 40% off. So instead of shopping spring and summer discounted pieces, you'll be seeing brand new merchandise for the fall and winter season ahead. Do note, they do also release plenty of transitional items, beauty, home, etc. 

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.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

  • July 12-19, all cardmembers get to shop Early Access in stores and online. If you're not a Nordstrom cardmember, I promise you it's 100% worth it. I have a Nordstrom retail card which, to me, is the simplest way to go. It's not a credit card, there's no interest, no monthly payments. It's linked directly to your checking account and you earn points for every $1 spent. 
  • July 20-August 5, sale opens to everyone, with or without a Nordstrom card. 

Tips + Strategy for Shopping the Sale

  • My biggest tip is to shop early and to shop online. Items go fast, really fast. So if there's something you have your eye on, grab it!
  • 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 see and quickly try-on items if needed. 
  • Prioritize your shopping needs. I like to start the sale having a clear picture of what I want/need. Browsing the entire sale can get overwhelming very quickly, so I like to make sure I have a focus. Here are a few of the main categories I like to take advantage of: denim, bags, boots/shoes, sweaters, outerwear.

Personally, I like to buy "classic" pieces in all of the above categories or items that fill a void in my wardrobe. For example, black ripped, high-rise jeans and nude loafers were on my list last year. For tops, I always know I like to find pieces for date night or styles that will take me from summer into fall, like lightweight sweaters and cardigans.

  • Browse categories based on what you need/want most. I usually start with anchor pieces I know I want like denim, shoes and bags then move on to tops, sweaters and outerwear, followed by beauty and accessories!
  • 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 shipping multiple orders. 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.

I hope this is helpful and for reference, feel free to browse a few of last year's sale posts HERE, HERE and HERE. I will be sharing more as the sale begins including what I bought, what I love and favorites still in stock as the sale goes along. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions at all and I always appreciate you shopping with me!
