Hello Everyone!!!
I have a rare Sunday post!! I wanted to get this up before a very busy week ahead with lots of great content coming your way!!! I wanted to talk about the Nordstrom Sale that starts Early Access July 12th! The BIGGEST and my personal favorite sale of the year! So many amazing items come out for fall at a discount!! Thats right….you can grab brand new items at a discount! BUT don’t wait on these items because they will go back up in price when the sale ends. 
This is the time to stock up on all fall purchases. There are so many great basics and essentials for fall that you can grab at a discount! Last year I was pregnant so I grabbed so many amazing things for pregnancy and postpartum!!
SO before we get too into it here is the low-down about the sale…if you are unfamiliar:
Early Access…This means you are a Nordstrom cardholder….starts July 12th – July 19th. July 20th the sale will open to the public and go until August 5th. August 6th prices go back up!
There is everything from womens fashion, to mens to kids to beauty exclusives!!! There are LITERALLY SO MANY THINGS from really big ticket items like winter coats, boots, cashmere sweaters etc. to smaller budget friendly basics long sleeve tees, cardis etc.

So how do I shop the sale? Well I always assess my closet before I start shopping. What I need in my closet. I also review what I bought from last year and see what I wore a ton and got great use out of!!
Last year my most worn items purchased from the #Nsale was my high-waisted zella leggings, a blush slouchy sweater from BP, the ever so loved Lush Pocket Tee, Nike Sneakers and Baublebar Tassel Earrings. I also got an amazing cozy blush blanket that we literally use everyday in the house!
I am not going to link any of these items because most are sold out BUT I just wanted to give you a feel for what I actually wore a ton and loved from last year!
SO THIS YEAR: I am looking for booties…maybe a couple pairs. I literally decluttered so many pairs of booties and I actually NEED a good pair. I am also looking for some good pair of non-distressed skinny jeans. I also wouldn’t hate getting a couple good new cardigans. I saw in the catalog a beautiful faux-sherling coat. I’m also going to be looking for my husband! He needs some new clothes for work. I also will be grabbing some good stuff for my kiddos especially Eli because he will be starting school in fall! 🙂

What I Suggest Buying: BOOTS (look for these first because they will sell out the quicket), Winter Coats (I know its hard to think of coats in July but trust me! You will save in the end!), Cardigans (these will also sell out super fast!), Denim (look for high-quality denim because usually these brands will not go on sale!), Beauty Set Exclusives (They will have jumbo sized or have sets of amazing beauty products on sale!)
Fun Things To Look Out For: Home Items (These are always overlooked but have some great stuff), cute fall Work Tops(if you are a working gal this is a great time to look for these), Accessories (They usually have some cute earrings and accessories, Bags (I usually never buy a bag from the Nordstrom sale but they will have Tory Burch, Kate Spade and many other designer handbags at a discount!)
Well This was kind of a rambley post but I hope you guys enjoy shopping the sale! The blogger world and Instagram will be saturated with #Nsale updates. I will be doing Try-Ons, Posts and of course Videos on all things I purchase from the sale!!! Make sure to be following all my socials for any updates!
Always, 
Erin
