     Happy Nordstrom Sale Early Access Day!!! Who else joined me in waking up at a crazy early hour to be the first to shop with your Nordstrom Card this morning? It's mornings like these that I'm thankful I had a morning radio internship a couple years ago... waking up in the middle of the night isn't that hard for me if I went to bed early thanks to that experience. 😉Anyways- I was thrilled to see that a lot of my very favorite brands are included in this year's sale. Some I expected, like Tory Burch, and others I was very impressed with the selections, like J. Crew! Let's get right to it... in my first Nordstrom Sale post for this year, I'm sharing my favorite picks from my personal favorite brands.

      AG Jeans are definitely a splurge item, but worth it in my opinion. They are some of the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn! It's a significant savings to buy a pair during the NSale. 


     In the last couple of years, Baublebar has become a favorite destination of mine for fun statement jewelry, and a couple simple pieces as well. Nordstrom sells Baublebar as well, and there are some fun pieces in this year's NSale!


     Nordstrom has several "house brands," meaning that they're exclusive to Nordstrom. BP is my favorite out of all of these! Just about everything BP is under $100 at full price, and during the NSale most things are under $50, which is definitely affordable for Nordstrom. I own several BP things and find them to be a great line for basic pieces! 

     J. Crew

     Did you know that J. Crew is sold at Nordstrom?! You can stock up during the NSale on some preppy essentials, while indulging in the benefits of Nordstrom's free shipping + free returns, and earning points on your Nordstrom card! 

     Kate Spade

     So many fun Kate Spade picks in this year's NSale! I am CRUSHING hardcore on these gorgeous coats- doesn't the pink wrap one scream my name? This is also a great time to try out a Kate Spade bag or wallet. 

     Kendra Scott 

     Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry brands- their pieces are so distinctive and you can wear them with so many things. I really love the beautiful aqua color that these Kirsten earrings and Kacey necklace are offered in for the NSale!


     Madewell is a newer brand that I've gotten into, but I was excited to see not only that Nordstrom carries it, but there's a wide selection in this year's NSale. I think this classic trench coat for under $100 on sale might be one of the best buys of this year's sale! 

     Tory Burch 

     And last but certainly not least, my favorite brand to shop each year in the NSale!! I didn't make any Tory Burch purchases this year,  but I was so impressed with the purses and shoes selection. Tory Burch Riding Boots are a preppy must! 

      Whew! And there you go with all of my highlights from my favorite brands in this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you're wondering what exactly this sale is and why you should shop it, check out this blog post from last week! 

     I promise not to overwhelm you with NSale content (I have totally unrelated blog posts planned for a couple days next week), but I am looking forward to sharing more about the sale, and talking about my purchases when they arrive. Happy Shopping!

     God Bless,

      xoxo Annaliese

  12. The Nordie sale is SO GREAT for getting those more expensive "nice" or "staple" pieces! I love how many brands they have on sale this year, especially in the beauty department!
