It’s finally here — the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access! In case you missed this post, we’ll give you a quick run-down. This is the biggest and best sale of the year. We love it so much because it’s all new pieces for fall. Not things that didn’t sell. Not things that are out of season. Not things that were overstocked. ALL NEW STUFF! We love to stock up on staples like these faux leather leggings, over the knee boots, and tees! Head to our Instastories now for our first thoughts from the sale, as well as the things we use and love that are included in the sale!
Stay tuned for two weeks straight of the best of the sale! We will have a ton of try-ons, dressing room pics, plus outfit posts coming your way — so be sure you’re following along on IG stories. Ashley has the first appointment of the day at Nordstrom Walnut Creek, and Emily is flying into San Francisco to shop and shoot on Friday!
Early access starts today, which is for Nordstrom card holders only, so if you don’t have one, sign up here.
Today, we are each sharing our top 25 items from the sale!
I have been shopping this sale for years and years now. I have a method down, and I always stick to it. This is my favorite time to buy new jeans. I am loving these from Good American. And my tried and true Hudson Nico (I have 3 pairs). Every single year, I buy these candles to keep on hand to give as gifts throughout the year. I love to get some new leggings from Zella, I am definitely getting these ones. I always get a few trendy jackets to wear throughout the fall. Last year it was a camo bomber (that I still wear all the time), but this year I have my eye on this one and this one. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is the only time of year I will buy my boots. My FAVORITE booties are on sale and I can’t believe it. I wore them 24/7 for New York and London Fashion week. I am definitely getting another pair of these. I also love to get a heeled bootie, and a pair of OTK boots to wear throughout the fall and winter. I also get a few basic knits and tees to wear throughout the year. I love this cardigan, and this one (only $32). And my favorite tees from the sale are here, here and here. Lastly, I get a few trendier pieces to wear on date night or to blogger events. I love this, this and, this. I am headed to Croatia in September and my favorite, Becca Swim, is on sale! I got this green one piece, and this black one! Lastly, SPANX LEGGINGS. If you’ve been following along for a while, you know that I am obsessed with these (I have 4 pairs) and I wear them NON STOP!
Emily is so excited to finally be able to shop this sale in person. Reno doesn’t have a Nordstrom, so in the past, she has always shopped online. As usual, she will be picking up these perfect OTK boots — these are always a staple and get her through the Reno winters. For work wear, she will be getting these pumps, this cardigan, and this shift dress. Some more fall staples she loves are: this cardigan, and this top. If you’re looking for a splurge item, this Elizabeth and James dress is it! We both love Rails, and this shirt is so good! For budget buys, check out this off the shoulder top, this sweater, this jacket, and this shirt dress. As you guys know, Emily really treasures her time at home with her family. So she is taking advantage of the amazing home items the sale has to offer, and making her home a little bit more enjoyable. First on her list is this Barefoot Dreams blanket (check out their cardigan too) — these are so soft and the babies love to snuggle up! She also loves hosting dinner parties, so she is getting this decanter and this serving tray.
Stay tuned tomorrow, because we have our top picks under $50!
