It’s that time of year again! I’m back to chat about my favorite sale of the year where I can stock up on all of my plaid favorites. This year I’m trying to stick to fall staples, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have an extensive wishlist 🙂 The shoes this year are AMAZING! Just a quick reminder, don’t feel any pressure to buy anything from the sale. If you don’t have the budget for it, it’s okay!
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
Each year, Nordstrom has a huge sale in the summer with highly anticipated fall fashion items on sale! It’s the perfect time to stock up on some trendy fall basics, such as boots, jackets & coats at a great price. Once the sale period is over, the items will go back to full price and will be sold through the fall & winter.

TIPS FOR SHOPPING THE SALE
Make a list of what you’re shopping for! I always find that it helps to make a list so that you don’t go crazy buying everything in the sale (I have a bad habit of impulse purchases if I don’t do this beforehand!). Think about what you already have in your closet and what you may be looking to wear or use in the fall season. This year I’m shopping for:
- Tall boots
- White & black combat boots
- A new coat
- New workout gear
- A couple of versatile fall dresses
- Faux leather pants
Set a budget! This is the most important thing to do before you shop! I have to remind myself not to go crazy, and I have a spending limit for when I hit buy in my shopping cart.
Add items from the preview to your wish list – then you can pare items down and add them to bag to shop quickly! I’ve been adding items to my wish list and I logged on today to pare them down to my budget (since I get way too excited about fall clothes!). I’m also going to pare my list down again before the sale opens. I like to sleep on things and have a fresh perspective when I wake up!
