The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I may be new to blogging, but I am not new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I look forward to this sale every year - probably more then I should. This sale is not about mark downs on last season's items that didn't sell. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is all about what's trending for fall and markdowns on your favorite staples and new drops. Excited yet?

Every year I anxiously wait for the arrival of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog. I comb through the pages over and over compiling my perfect list. You may think I'm crazy, but I've scored so many awesome Anniversary Sale finds in the past, I'd be crazy not to do my research.

Speaking of research - This year's sale is a little different from year's past. Sure, we all got the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog, but that was only a glimpse of what items were actually on sale. The complete list was exclusively online and made available only to a select few... until now.

This year Nordstrom has decided to make the entire Anniversary Sale list available to everyone. EVERYONE! Why is this important? Because things sell out. FAST. You need to be on your game and ready to pounce when your day to shop arrives. The sale opens for you based on your individual Nordstrom card holder level. So, from Icons to Insiders, your day to shop the sale will vary from August 4 through August 18. And if you're not a Nordstrom card holder, you will have an opportunity to shop the sale starting August 19. So game on!

Trust me... You need this!

Some of my past Anniversary Sale favorites are back on repeat. Trust me when I say you need to check these items out! Seriously - how cute is this Missoni poncho as a swim suit cover up?!?! It's back on Anniversary!

Also let's talk Stuart Weitzman and his over the knee boots. I wear these all the time and for me, are considered a closet staple. Another closet staple - my Spanx faux leather leggings. I actually have a blog post on different ways to rock these leggings.

And Eric Javits hats. They are excellent quality and so good. These hats are a splurge, but worth every penny.

The Rails military jacket is back, and this year is offered in several colors. It's a great lightweight jacket that pairs well with shorts, sweats, denim... My favorite is wearing mine with a lace skirt, knotted T, and my golden goose sneakers. Effortlessly cool.

Gotta Love the Staples

Everyone has their own staples that they've grown to love. And this year's sale does not disappoint. A few things I'm so excited to see on this year's sale are the Free People Bralettes, Natori Feathers Hipster Briefs, and Slip Scrunchies. Tom Ford body shimmer smells like a dream and adds just the right amount of glisten. And once you try Commando thongs, you won't wear anything else. They are perfect under leggings for no lines whatsoever. Also, On Cloud athletic shoes are my newest workout obsession... and guess what - totally on Anniversary Sale! I'll be buying these for sure, as well as some of my other favorite staples listed below.

I Can't Wait to Check These Items Out!

Every year there are those items that you weren't expecting, but can't wait to try. Here are my top picks I'm most exited for. ATM, Fendi, Veronica Beard... this is going to be good!

This post is only a glimpse of what this sale has to offer, but hopefully this gave you a place to start. Know when this sale opens for you and mark your calendar. I'll be hitting up the sale on August 4th!

Happy shopping!
