As many of you know [or have heard plastered all over social media], it’s almost time for Christmas in July, aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I won’t spend too much time going over all the details becauase I assume you know the jist by now, but I will include all of my personal predicted sellouts and top favorites! This sale is the best time of the year to stock up on all your wardrobe basics, athleisure, shoes, beauty, and more… just as in previous years, I’ve compiled my top 20 #nsale must-haves list for 2021.

This sale is better than your dreaded Black Friday shopping! It has ALL. THE. THINGS and isn’t like a regular sale. By shopping this event, you have the opportunity to shop the newest styles coming out for fall… so all the new for less! The only downside to the sale is the tiered-access system–womp womp. Here is how it works:

Lucky for me, Mr. Stoneking buys almost everything from Nordstrom so I get to shop on ICON day = tomorrow. I’ve got my wishlist all completed and thanks to my favorite Nordstrom Stylist Noel, I’ll be there in store to give the full rundown bright and early with coffee in hand.

Here’s How to Shop Early:

Everyone has access to view the sales beginning JULY 28TH. With this access, you are able to mark your favorites and begin making your lists! This sale is CRAZY full of shoppers, so I suggest purchasing your top items first [if they’re still available]

Just like every other year, you shop based on your shopping status in the Nordy Club. Your status is determined by how much money you spent there throughout the year! So, the more $$ you spent= higher selection time for you! Personally, I am a Nordstrom Cardholder, so I get early starting tomorrow. A quick side note I like to add– If you are a cardholder, make sure you create a budget before you begin shopping and stick to it. When browsing, try to think about what will be a good wear for years to come! I still have the debit card they offered years ago and I will never encourage racking up debt just to shop a sale ;).
