How To Prep Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Happy Friday Friends!!

The count down is on for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I’m already starting to have anxiety about it! 😆 Nothing explains it more then FOMO <FEAR OF MISSING OUT> because those are my exact feelings about the sale.  I really didn’t start shopping it until last year and I remember seeing everyones purchases and was bummed out about what I missed out on.  So, here I am PREPPING for the sale of the year! I’ll break down the why, when and what to do to prepare below

Free People Swing Tunic: Comes in 5 colors, I’m 5’4 and kind of get away wearing it was a dress but of course I would for sure still wear shorts underneath.

Suede Moto Jacket: I scored this jacket last year during the anniversary sale and got it for under $100, I’m going to guess they will have it as apart of the sale again! So for sure add this to your wishlist.. I’ve gotten so much wear out of it year around.

Denim Jean Shorts: The wear on these is impeccable especially for summer, they have just the right amount of stretch in them,  I did size up to accommodate my bump and still fitting in them at 22 weeks.. My other favorites here.

Dolce Vita Effie Sandals: These have been my favorite summer heel! More sizes available here.

Daniel Wellington Watch: I’ve been loving this white/rose gold option for summer.  It looks so amazing with a Tan and completes all my summer outfits.  Use code: AROUNDTOWNBABE for 15% off.  I also got a gold mesh band that I can switch out with it.


Why Shop The Sale

This sale is HUGE because it’s all new fall merchandise at amazing discounted prices for a limited time.  Basically after July 4th I feel like summer is over.  When you go to the mall or go shopping you will start to notice everything changes to fall styles and summer is all discounted.  So now is the time to do “back to school” shopping or to update your wardrobe for the fall season at a discounted price before the season even begins!

Save The Date

The sale opens to everyone on July 21st and ends August 6th.  Prices will go back up on August 7th, so you want to mark your calendar or set a reminder to shop so you don’t miss out on the good deals!! Because believe me you will be sad when all the good stuff is gone and IF they restock it it could be way later in the season when prices have gone back up and then you’ll just feel stupid buying it at the regular retail price.  Believe me! I’ve been there!!

Want in early?

Want to shop the sale before it opens to EVERYONE.  The card is the key.  Sign up for a Nordstrom Credit Card! I know this sounds scary and I hate credit cards too.  I opted for the Nordstrom Rewards Card which will still grant you early access but works just like a debit card.  This honestly is the best way to go shopping early access because THINGS WILL SELL OUT even before public access.

Start Planning

Which leads me to planning ahead!  First come up with a budget to give yourself to shop, then go through your closet and see what pieces you need to update in your wardrobe or items you wished you had last season.  Typically I like to splurge on a new coat or a new pair of boots.  Check out the catalog here so you can see a sneak peek of items and prices that will be available. All departments will be included. Think beauty products, home decor, & don’t forget to take the family into consideration.  This is a great time to start shopping for the kids back to school shopping or help your spouse out updating their closet.  A lot of people even start shopping for Christmas items.. I mean.. if your THAT person that plans that far ahead this really is a great time to take advantage of the sales too. (I should probably do that, I’m typically such a last minute shopper) lol

Use LikeToKnow.It

Now is such a great time to take advantage of the LikeToKnow.It app and follow all your favorite fashion bloggers closely!  They will be posting regularly what all the cute trends and finds are for fall and will make it so much easier to shop the sale without having to browse through it all yourself!
