The Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

The countdown is over because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has finally begun! I know, I know, everyone and their mother is talking about this sale, but here’s why: Nordstrom releases BRAND NEW merchandise for fall and winter at a discounted price! Crazy, right? If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder (they have both credit and debit options), then you can start shopping from now until July 20th. The sale will open to the public on July 21st, and you’ll have until August 8th to shop these amazing deals! Now, I know it may feel weird buying knit sweaters and riding boots right in the middle of summer, but you gotta get over it because as a seasoned shopper of this sale (and a Nordstrom employee for 2 years) I promise you that the Anniversary Sale is notorious for selling out of the hottest items within just a few days, if not hours! My one piece of advice? Take advantage of Nordstrom’s bomb return policy and buy now, decide later!

My favorite part of the sale is that it’s inclusive of all departments, so there really is something for everyone to enjoy. That being said, that also means there’s a lot of merchandise to sift through, so I rounded up the hottest items from the sale (pictured in the collage), as well as the best items in each specific category.

SHOP THE HOTTEST SALE ITEMS:

In my opinion, these are the best of the best items that you need to get your hands on from the sale. I always look forward to seeing what jackets, sweaters, scarfs, and purses they’ll come out with, and this year did not disappoint!

TOP SWEATERS:

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to stock up on those cozy, chunky knit sweaters. I love how most of these sweaters come in a muted pink color, which makes for a great transition piece. My all time favorite sweater this year is the Topshop Back Sweater. It has super cool crisscross lacing on the back, and the bell sleeves fit my bohemian style perfectly!
TOP ATHLETIC WEAR:

The best athletic gear to stock up during the sale are Nikes, Zella leggings, and socks (believe it or not!). Socks are those items that are randomly expensive and super annoying to buy for yourself. Zella has great plain white socks, and the tabs on the back keep them from sliding down in your sneakers. Is that anyone else’s biggest pet peeve?!

TOP SHOES:

From ballet flats to over the knee boots, now’s the time to stock up on all your staple footwear. Every year I make sure to purchase some sort of footwear, so now that I pretty much have all the staple shoes I need, this year I’m on the hunt for a more adventurous pair. How cute are these ankle wrap flats from Halogen?

TOP ACCESSORIES:

With all the amazing clothes and shoes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has to offer, sometimes it can be easy to overlook the accessories, but don’t make that mistake! They have the best selection of designer bags, and even jewelry from brands like Kendra Scott, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade are also included in the sale! Every year I look forward to seeing what Rebecca Minkoff will come out with. Her bags always end up becoming top sellers and worn by practically every fashion blogger out there. I mean, look how cute and unique this embroidered bag is? Love it.

TOP BEAUTY:

Lastly, we can’t forget about the beauty section! This is another department you don’t want to skip out on. Philosophy always comes out with some sort of duo or trio set, and let me tell you they are so worth it! Last year I bought the Purity set and it lasted me a year and a half. That comes out to only spending $2.78 a month on face wash! Some other great deals this year are MAC travel brushes, the NARS cheek palette (with their infamous Laguna bronzer inside), and Voluspa candles, which are a steal at $15.90 for 3 different scents!

      Isn’t it the coziest scarf you’ve ever seen?! It’s sold out already, but hopefully they bring it back soon.
