The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Are you sick of it yet? If it’s not your thing, hop back one post and check out the fabulous sale going on at Cents of Style this weekend.

Or are you shopping, and shopping again for those sold out items you missed on Day 1? At first glance, I was not super excited, but the more I browse, the more I see that I like. Note- like does not mean need, so I’m trying to keep it reigned in. Since today is my normal Saturday Shopping sale post day, I’m going to go ahead and lay out most of my picks, and then I’m going to lay off for a bit. You have seen enough of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in three short days. I hope some of what I ordered will arrive Monday so I can share my thoughts on some actual items next week, but really, this sale gets overdone. I’m not going to lie though, it’s a great opportunity for bloggers to make commission, so I will post about it. If you choose to shop through my links, I truly appreciate it. I always do. Since it’s so overwhelming because there is so much stuff, I’m creating a sale page where you can find all the categories I have picks for. I’ll add to it as I have time to go through the sections and I may not do a full post, so be sure to check that page tab (up top, right after the home tab.)
Remember, this is early access until the 20th, when the public sale starts. I saw a complaint on twitter about not being able to shop the sale until all the bloggers make their returns. Just get a card already. It’s simple, quick, and you can start shopping right away. I have one. I really only use it for the sale and Christmas season. Just because you get the card, doesn’t mean you have to go in debt with it. Unless you have no restraint, and then I’d say wait.
Casual tops and tees – Cute stuff, but don’t sweat it. If you are a fan of a particular brand, go for it. Great time to stock up on these basics to wear now and layer in the fall with cardigans and jackets. However, most of these are of the same quality to me as JCrew Factory, Old Navy, etc. so if you miss something, don’t sweat it. I bought a long sleeve Caslon tee last year, and it does drape nicely and it’s super soft. I would purchase them again this time if they had a color I needed.
Cardigan and sweaters– This is a category I don’t need until maybe November? Southern fall and winter is so unpredictable, we might wear shorts on Christmas Day! So it’s hard to get excited about this category, but here are my picks: I love the details like the twist front BP sweater, the hooded cardigan, and the blouson sleeve Gibson pullover.
Denim– A great category to save in if you love premium denim. I’ve based my picks on what I’d try as a petite curvy girl with much junk in the trunk! I love that Nordstrom always gives inseam, rise, etc. measurements. This lets me know if I even need to bother. I always look for a 14 inch back rise. I purchased Articles of Society jeans last year. They are super soft and comfy. Don’t size up. I mistakenly did and I play tug of war with them by the end of the day, but if I had the right size, I’d love them! Of course my all time favorites are NYDJ. If they say true to size, get your size. If they say size down, heed the advice. I know, personal experience. And when you invest this much in denim, you want to get the right size! I have the NYDJ Ami and love them. As a teenage and young adult, Levi was all I knew. I’m giving them a try again. The high waist crops and the Caslon flare crops are on the way to me just so I can try a new trend.
Dresses and skirts– This is not a category I’m super excited about, but I do love skirts. Here are a few picks:
Accessories– Oh the fun stuff! So many cute hats! I keep seeing everyone post this baker boy cap (I’m excited to see baker boy caps back this year, my favorite with my short hair) but this one is super cute too.
That’s all for now! Thanks for following along. Happy Shopping!
