Best Deals of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

IMG_6428It’s finally here, the sale of the year! If you follow any bloggers at all, surely you are aware that today is the first day of Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. As for me, I’ve been up since 3am when the sale first went live and have put together a comprehensive guide to the top 20 pieces in each category… ok, I know that’s A LOT but the truth is, there are over 1500 products this year… and there were SO many good tops, sweaters, denim and booties that I couldn’t resist.

What I’ve done is made note under the collage of the VERY BEST ITEMS, what’s in my own shopping cart and what I’m planning on trying on when I head to the store later. Keep in mind– if you’re at work today, you should definitely place an online order for store pickup… to make sure that what you have your eye on doesn’t sell out.

So what should you be buying?

Typically, Nordstrom Anniversary is the time to stock up on fall basics and must-have items. My favorite thing about the sale is that it’s the only sale out there that’s all, never-before-seen merch… NEXT season’s merchandise! Most sales are CLEARANCE or on products that have been out for awhile,  so if you have your eye on something, you have to wait to get a deal. The great thing about this sale is that you can get it at a discount, right away. (And you’ll kick yourself if you miss it on sale and end up scoring it full price, trust me.)

Some of the best bargains:

Tory Burch riding boots are always a hot ticket item during the Anniversary Sale. Snag ’em for $349 on sale. After the sale, the boots will retail for $578. 

The Classic Tall Hunter Boot is on sale for $99.90. After the sale, they’ll retail for $150.

The best selling AG jean style ‘The Legging’ is always one of the Anniversary Sale’s top selling items. This year’s version is a raw hem version, on sale for $149.90. After the sale they will retail for $225. Or you can go for the distressed version, ‘The Legging’ ripped ankle skinny

The Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan is back! I shared it on the blog in the fall and LOVE it! It’s on sale for $98.90 and after the sale will retail for $148.

Keep in mind that you can only shop now if you have a Nordstrom card. (You can apply here!) To access the sale, you have to log in to your account.

If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, sadly you’ll have to wait until all-access starts on July 20th. (A lot of the good stuff is gone by then, but it’s still worth shopping!)
