Top Picks Of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

Athleisure

Pullover: Thread & Supply(M)*tts | Leggings: Zella(M)*size up | Shoes: Adidas(8)*size down half size

Last year wasn’t as impressed with this pullover since it didn’t have the fuzzy fabric on the inside(I know I’m picky) but this year they changed the game and it is inside and out! Also, Zella leggings are definitely a go-to since they are pricey and NEVER go on sale otherwise. Adidas on major sale too and chose this color to go with so many outfits!

Regular Price: $78/$59/$85 | Sale Price: $50/$39/$63

Cardigan: Barefoot Dreams(XS/S)*Size up | Top: Bp(XS)*tts | Leather Leggings: Spanx(M)*Size up | Shoes: Adidas(8)*Size down

I have raved about barefoot dreams so much(love their blankets!) so had to get this. It is lightweight but so so soft!! I do want to size up one just because I want it to be a little bit bigger. Also these spanx leggings are so good! I will say size up on these too because if you get them too small they are uncomfortable!

Regular Price: $116/$25/$98/$85 | Sale Price: $76/$15/$64/$63

Katy’s Outfit // Pullover: Thread & Supply(M)*tts | Leggings:Zella(M)*Size up | Shoes: Uggs(9)*Size up

Sisters style is relaxed so she was a lot about the fuzzy pullover and fuzzy slippers! I got a medium in the pullover to make sure it fit bump but she said that she preferred it oversized as well so medium worked perfect!

Regular Price:$78/ $59/ $85| Sale Price: $50/ $39/ $54

Hoodie: Nike(L)*Size up | Leggings: Zella(M)*Size up | Shoes: Nike(8.5)*tts

Could not believe the price on this hoodie and you know it’s great quality since its Nike! Love the color of these leggings. Sometimes this color can look unflattering but because Zella is such great quality these look so good on! Also, finding Nike’s(especially cute ones like these) under $100 is so crazy!

Regular Price: $60/$65/$130 | Sale Price: $40/$43/$96

Chick-fil-a All Day

Dress: Amazon | Top: Amazon

Sooo pregnancy and cravings have gone a little like this… my first trimester I got the advice to “live your best life”, and so I did lol. I went off the deep end, not eating fruits or veggies and splurging on pop tarts, tuna footlong sandwiches, Mac n cheese, Lucky Charms, and Chick-Fil-A pretty much every day. I started to not feel my “best life” self and was soooo groggy. Second trimester I have found a balance of eating healthy, not going too crazy, and still indulging on all my favorite fast foods lol. Chick Fil A, 50 cent tacos from Jack In The Box, Chipotle, McDonalds, the list goes on and on lol.

Ever since I can remember, Ted has been so interested in credit cards, what credit cards are best for what purchases, and it really feels like I am trying to keep up lol! He is always researching new cards and constantly trying to find ones that fit our needs the best. I know we eat out a lot but with our crazy schedules it’s what works and we always try to incorporate healthy options too. That’s why this card is so perfect for us! The benefits are focused on stuff that is already big part of our lives like eating out (or ordering in) and travel. My cousin actually told us about the Wells Fargo Propel® Card at a recent family gathering. With the card you earn 3x points on eating out, ordering in, gas stations, rideshare, flights, hotels, rental cars, & popular streaming services. Basically our everyday life lol!

Thanks Wells Fargo for teaming up with us on today’s post!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prep 2019

Dress Up Buttercup Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Nordstrom sale is here and the fun begins again!! I absolutely LOVE this time to be able to share items that are BRAND NEW and discounted for only a limited time. After the sale, the items go back to the original price! If you are not too sure what the hype is all about for this sale, I will keep it short and sweet, and break down everything you need to know below!

What?

  • Every year Nordstrom has a HUGE sale (known as NSALE) that goes on for a couple of weeks.

When? (important dates)

  • July 9 – icon level cardholders (that’s me!) get to shop the sale in the store.
  • July 10 & 11 – icon and ambassador level cardholders are able to shop the sale in store!
  • July 11 at 12:30 pm ET – icon and ambassador level cardholders are able to pre-shop the sale online!
  • July 12 – known as the “Early Access Sale”. All Nordstrom cardholders are able to shop the sale before it opens to the public. I have seen it multiple years in a row and cardholders definitely get the best picks! So all you have to do is apply to be a Nordstrom card holder here if you don’t have one!
  • July 19 – The sale is finally open to the public! Everyone and anyone can shop the sale!
  • August 5 – Last day of the sale && all prices increase after the day is over!

Why?

  • So, why shop the sale? First, I mentioned the sale is unlike any other because these are newly released items. Typically a sale means they are wanting to get rid of it but these are all new releases!
  • Get ahead of the game for your fall wardrobe! This is the perfect time to shop for fall essentials since the majority of the items released are new fall arrivals. This is the time when I purchase my staples like jeans, booties, etc.
  • They don’t only release fall wardrobe! They also release some of my favorite work out gear that I wore all year long during this sale. The other half of the sale includes work out gear, and summer looks that you can wear now!
  • Because who wants to pay full price after the sale ends?

Tips?

  • First things first, be sure to check out this page here for CONSTANT nsale updates! I get access on July 9th so I will be the first to shop the sale and be ready to share all nsale items with you starting Thursday(the 11th) evening! I also have lots or brands sending me items beforehand that I can choose to share if I like it and it is apart of the sale!
  • I will be blogging, insta storying, posting on IG, etc of all my favorite finds. This isn’t my first rodeo so I know exactly what will sell out the fastest and I will have LOTS of clothes pre-hand already sent to me so I can be the first to post before it sells out! The best items tend to sell out fast so I hope to be as helpful and resourceful to you all as possible!
  • Getting a Nordstrom Card to shop the sale early is KEY. The best tend to sell out during early access so it helps to have a card!
  • Once you get a card, be sure to use your triple point days on the days where you are going to shop until you drop!
  • Make a list of what you actually need. Do you need a refresher on jeans? New work out shoes? leggings? tees? cardigans?
  • Everything is free shipping and free returns. What I love THE MOST about Nordstrom. So if you are unsure, just order it anyways and it will never hurt to send it back.
  • Again, be sure to check back here! Lots of helpful posts will be released and I will be sure to be updating yall constantly on IG stories as well!
