I am so excited for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Last year was great and all, but my growing baby bump somewhat limited me in terms of what I could get. Don’t get me wrong, I still walked away with some pieces that are still my favorite to this day – like this cardigan and this dress. Both were bump friendly and non-maternity which meant that I can wear them again this year! Some items, however, it was a big question mark as to whether they’d fit me postpartum (jeans and shoes, for instance). As for the others, I knew I could hold out until next year.
And that’s finally here!
My strategy this year for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is to make a wish list and cut it down from there. So, I thought it would be fun to share what my initial favorites are from the sale! I actually have a little bit of everything – from comfy PJs to workwear pieces which tells me that I have some hard decisions to make. I mean, do I wish I could get every single item on this list? Heck yes. But I have a baby to take care of now so mama’s gotta control herself. 😉
If you’re new to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here’s a quick breakdown as to why it’s such a big deal.
Nordstrom releases their fall collection in batches (details below) rather than launch them all at once. These items may or may not come back in stock once sold out so if you see something you love, it’s best to get it before it’s gone for good. This usually only happens on items that are more trendy (think leopard, snakeskin, etc.) or big ticket items from big brands like Marc Fisher or Sam Edelman. But you just never know! That’s why it’s great to be a Nordstrom cardholder since you get to shop before the public. In my experience, a lot of the good stuff sells out before Public Access so last year, I made the decision to get the card. You can imagine how excited Jake was. 🙂

It’s going to be hard to pick and choose what ultimately comes home with me because there is SO MUCH good stuff this year. Hoping when it’s go-time, I just listen to my gut and take my own advice when it comes to purchasing.
Have you made your wish list yet? What’s on it??
