Every year in July, Nordstrom throws an epic party called the Anniversary Sale (open access starts TOMORROW!). If you follow bloggers on any form of social media, you've probably heard about it (like, a lot) and you might even be wondering "why is everyone freaking about about fall clothes in JULY?!" Well, today I'm going to answer that question, explain why everyone loves the #NSale, and give you some pointers so you too can get the most out of it while enjoying major savings!
First things first, the sale started about a week ago, but you can only purchase items during early access if you have a Nordstrom credit or debit card. If you're not a cardholder, you just have to wait one more day and you can shop 'til you drop! That means you have enough time to decide what you want to buy so you can get it before it sells out!
So why should we be worried about fall clothes when we're still trying to soak up every bit of summertime? Well, you know those boots that you were obsessed with last fall and never purchased? They're already out again and on MAJOR SALE!
If you don't buy them now, you'll still want them a month or two from now and you'll have to pay full price. And that really stinks when you'd rather spend extra money on another pair of boots or a new cardigan (because you always wear that one neutral one on repeat). Me too, girlfriend!
Maybe you bought all of the shoes you wanted last fall (you didn't, let's be honest), but wore one pair of booties so much that they need to be thrown away. Well, during the N Sale you can replace that color AND buy another pair! Two is always better than one, and you'll basically be saving money by not wearing out your shoes every season (ok, maybe not, but a girl's gotta have options)!
So here's the deal; I want you to think long and hard about the one (or two...or three) thing(s) you kept wanting last year but never bought. Or something you wear constantly and should probably buy another version of. Do you have something in mind now?
Go get 'em, girlfriend! Come August, you'll be thanking your lucky stars that you invested in your fashion future and got your "back to school" clothes early. I shopped the sale online and in-store to make sure I shared the most amazing items with you, so keep scrolling to see my favorites in each category!
