The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! You might be seeing it all over social media right now, but the reason why is because it’s a sale that you do not want to miss. Here’s why.
What makes the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale special is that it’s a sale on NEW ARRIVALS. Meaning, you’re shopping the newest items of the season, bestsellers, and the most popular brands. All at incredible prices (we’re talking $50 – $100 off on some items!)
I use the Nordstrom sale to stock up on my personal faves, whether it’s by beauty go-to’s, new colors of items in my closet I love, or things I like to keep on hand for gifts. It’s basically like the olympics of shopping for me 😉
For some, the sale has already started with the Early Access dates (for cardmembers.) And for others, the sale goes live for everyone starting August 19th.
The cool thing this year is the new PREVIEW feature, which allows you to go in now and add items to a wishlist. When it’s time for you to shop, you can click to add them to your cart and check out. Super easy.
Here are the dates and details :
Because I am a cardmember, I was able to shop starting today. And here is what I bought below!
I know you guys might see a lot of these Nordstrom Sale posts, so I wanted to give you a little more of a personal sales guide and show you what I actually purchased.
If you have shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before, you know that items sell out REALLY FAST. I actually had a bunch more items on my wishlist. But by the time I could shop, so many items were already sold out. (I had to re-do the collage below!) Know that they do restock items, so keep checking back.
TIP : Nordstrom is always free shipping and free returns. So if you’re on the fence about something, I would suggest snagging it and then you can try on and return later if needed. Everything sells really quickly, so this is a little insider tip.
W H A T I B O U G H T
1 | Cashmere tunic – I actually have one just like it, but wear it so much that I grabbed another! I love wearing it over leggings.
2 | Diptyque Candle Set – I buy several sets of these candles every year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to keep on hand as gifts.
4 | Kiehl’s Jumbo Size Lotion – Another item I wait until the Anniversary Sale to stock up on these giant bottles. During the sale it’s $49, after the sale it’s $80! Well worth it, it’s my fave.
7 | Animal Print Mules – these have just enough interest but are basic and neutral to go with any casual outfit.
9 | Silk Joggers – I don’t know what it is about these, but I just love the color and subtle print for fall, and feel like you could dress them up or down.
10 | Alo Leggings – I have these in black, but am OBSESSED with this new pink color!
11 | Gorjana Powerstone Bracelet – I have been wearing their gemstone bracelet in the tie-on version in howlite (which is a stone meant to evoke calm) and bought another to stack with it in this new stretchy version with gold. Just loading myself up with some calming vibes over here! 😉
12 | Le Labo Candle Set – I love Le Labo, and treated myself to this candle set featuring their popular Santal 26 scent (my other fave is their Bergamot 22.)
13 | Hanky Panky undies – The only brand I wear, and I stock up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale each year! I got both the low rise and the regular rise versions. BONUS : they are buy more, save more, too!
14 | Barefoot Dreams cardigan – I have their popular throw but actually don’t have their also-very-popular cardigans. So cozy and soft to throw on over everything from loungewear to a tee shirt and leggings.
15 | Barefoot Dreams lounge socks – I bought several sets of these last year as gifts. I never travel without them!
16 | Moroccan Oil Set – I have used Moroccan oil for over a decade, it has helped keep my ends split-free. This lasts me for an entire year!
17 | Free People Sweater – I was obsessed with this one and it was sold out – and then came back and said there was one left in my size. SCORE! I bought the white one. I hope this one comes back in stock, because FP sweaters are the best.

It wasn’t just me scoring some sales finds! 😉 I also got a few items for the girls and for Russ :
I also buy them Ugg boots every year during the Nordstrom Anniverary Sale – this year, they are these shimmery ones! They are so easy for them to pull on when the weather gets colder.
I also grabbed these Adidas shoes for Reese in both the black and the rose gold. Such a great price!
For Russ, I bought him a couple more of these Peter Millar shorts that he loves.
