YES, YES, YES. The Nordstrom sale is just so good this year! This is my favorite sale of the year. Why? Because everything is NEW. This sale is not just old items that go on sale in anticipation for a new season.

It’s really the best time to stock up on basics, especially denim, as well as fall clothing.

I have gone through every single women’s, home, and beauty item and it is amazing.

Let’s go through all of the details and my shopping tips, then I will share my favorites.

MY TIPS FOR SHOPPING THE SALE:

+ Get the Nordstrom card. Items sell out so fast, and you won’t be able to shop the sale until July 20th unless you have the card.

+ Make a list of items you need. I was on the hunt for new jeans (I always stock up jeans during this sale), workout wear, and new jewelry. If you know what you already need, you will not feel as overwhelmed.

+ Split your shopping up by category. This makes it so much more doable, to weed out the stuff that you don’t need to be looking at. Once you’re in a specific category, you can filter it down to size, price, designer, and a lot more. I always shop this way when I shop the sale and it is really the best tip.

SKIRTS
 
There are so many spicy skirts on sale this year! I love the faux leather options. How kittenish is the patent vegan leather skirt?!
VEGAN BAGS

 
If you’re looking to invest in a good bag, NOW is the time. While Nordstrom doesn’t offer a ton of vegan leather options, they do have some great staple bags…specifically totes. I’ve had a tote on my wishlist for forever, and I ordered the Chelsea28 bag. The Sole Society duffel is also a MUST if you are a traveler!
JEANS & PANTS

 
If you don’t buy anything else, get yourself one good pair of jeans. The discounts are way too good to pass up. I usually get a pair of Rag & Bone jeans and a pair of AG jeans (because they’re both usually very pricey). I just ordered myself some Good American jeans and I can’t wait to see how they fit!
SWEATERS

 
The Wildfox sweater is the best basic sweater ever. I have the crew neck version and it is so soft!
DRESSES & JUMPSUITS

 
I love a sexy jumpsuit. How gorgeous is the black jumpsuit with the sheer top? I also got the Topshop dress in red. I love the plunging neckline and the RED color – it’s spicy!
OUTERWEAR

 
You’ve probably heard others talk about the Blank NYC faux leather jacket a million times, but there is a good reason. It is the best (faux) leather jacket. I love how this year, they added one with a built in hood for a more casual look. I also got the Make + Model sweatshirt in the pink color – I think it looks a little weird in the photo above, but if you browse through the other photos on the product page, it is much cuter! I love the cut out sleeve detail.
HAIR PRODUCTS

 
You know how much I love Oribe! This year, there are bundles that are so marked down…like less than one Oribe product in some cases. If you want the creme de la creme of hair products, get anything and everything Oribe. Plus, you will smell divine.
SKINCARE AND FRAGRANCE


 
I first tried Le Labo earlier this year, and Santal 33 is now my favorite fragrance. I love that it’s unisex too – you can share with your boyfriend/husband (or not!) if you want to be nice. 😉 Read about its cult following HERE. The rose spray from Herbivore is EVERYTHING. I use it as a toner in the morning and at night underneath my skincare products.
SUNGLASSES

 
The LeSpecs sunglasses are a dupe for the Gucci cat eye sunglasses and they’re 5 times less than the Gucci pair.
JEWELRY

 
If you need a good pair of studs, Nordstrom’s cubic zirconia options are the best. I have had mine for years, and they still sparkle and look new. I also picked up the Jaguar earrings and the Nadri ear crawlers.
HOME

 
MAKEUP

 
I have written a few blog posts about Charlotte Tilbury because it is my favorite makeup brand…there is not one item from the brand that I do not like. Your really can’t go wrong. But if you get one thing, the lip set is a great deal and the color (Pillow Talk) looks good on everyone!
