The Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016A Little Leopard

Ain’t No Party Like an NSale Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access has officially started! Nordstrom is already one of my favorite places on the planet, but this sale truly takes the cake. What makes it so great? You get to shop new fall arrivals at discounted prices. As in, the pieces will still be there in August when the sale ends (unless they sell out, which is totally a thing that happens), just for lots more dolla dolla bills.

And all it takes to get this super-exclusive early access perk is a Nordstrom Card. If store cards scare you (which tbh they probably should), Nordstrom even has a debit card option that lets you earn all the same rewards as the credit card. Think $20 Nordstrom Notes to spend, personal triple points days and more perks!

So if it seems like the blogger world is freaking out over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it’s probably because we are. Seriously, the most difficult part is narrowing down what I am going to purchase. I work out now, so I totally need those Alo Yoga leggings. But also: mini Diptyque candles! And new fall clothes from favorite brands like Madewell! I quickly added, like, $500 worth of stuff to my cart and that’s not even tempting myself with this Rebecca Minkoff gorgeousness (which is also giving me major Chloe vibes).

This is why store credit cards should scare you, folks. I could easily max mine out at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale alone, which kind of defeats the point of the discount. Interest is the worst.

Here are some of the pieces that caught my eye during day one of the sale (and may or may not be in my cart right this very second):

  1. Halogen Lace-Up Flats: so on trend, and I’ve been wanting a pair for a long time now.
  2. Diptyque Votive Candle Set: I love fancy candles, but they normally cost $60+ a pop. Orrr you could just grab this set for $30 per candle. One mini Diptyque candle usually costs $30. Three full size for $90? That’s a steal.
  3. Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag: So Chloe-esque and I’m not at all mad about it.
  4. BP Leather Strap Watch: Under $20 alert! I decided recently I want an Apple watch, but this old fashioned option is great in the meantime. 😉
  5. Alo Sports Bra: As you may know, I recently joined ClassPass and discovered I don’t hate working out. I also discovered the wide world of fitness apparel. Alo is one of my favorite brands, and this sports bra is a steal at less than $30. You can never have too many sports bras.
  6. Nike Sneakers: There are a few classes on my  ClassPass “want-to-try” list that very adamantly require CLEAN gym shoes, NO street shoes. All my sneakers are street shoes at the moment, so these seem like a very good and cute way to fix that problem.
  7. 8G Essential Greens Booster Trio: I know, you don’t typically think of Nordstrom as a health-supplement supplier, right? But it’s the only place I can find these tablets! Seriously, not even Amazon.
