Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016

ITS HERE! Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 aka Christmas in July aka best sale ever is HERE! Did you set your alarm for midnight so you could admire the best sale of the year, too? Did we just become best friends? 😉 By now you’ve heard all the hype and it’s finally here! I mentioned on a lot of my social media accounts that I am back at Nordstrom this week working the Anniversary sale. I haven’t worked there since having Michael so it’s a little crazy to be back for a few days. The best part about working it? (Besides seeing all of my lovely customers that I used to work with pre-baby.) Trying on everything BEFORE the sale goes live!

I will be sharing in depth breakdowns of each category of the sale, but right now, I’m giving you a first look review. I’m breaking down what I LOVE, what I thought I was going to love but didn’t, and a quick rundown of what is probably going to sell out. You can view the full sale here!

If you aren’t familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, early access to the sale just started for Nordstrom Card Holders. If you aren’t a Nordstrom Card holder you can sign up for one here. It’s the only store card that I have (there is a debit or a credit option) and the benefits are amazing. In fact, I have $80 from my points that I’m about to spend on this sale. When you spend your first $100 on the card you will receive $20 to spend in stores. 

Alright my friends, here it is: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016


Cardigan | Skirt | Tee | Jacket (multiple colors)

I love these four pieces. The Current Elliot tee is so cute and fits exactly how you want a t shirt to fit. It’s the perfect “jeans and a tee” kind of t-shirt. I love me a good tee. The faux leather skirt is the perfect piece for fall and is a really nice material. And can we talk about that price…$79!? Yes please.

Love at First Sight

This hooded poncho is number one on my list, and there are not a lot of them in the company. This is going to sell out, people! Its the most perfect fitting cashmere sweater and I’m absolutely in love with it. Just about every single one of my appointments today purchased it. Its to. die. for.

Save vs Splurge

What Not to Buy (LOL)

You know when you are so excited to try something on. You think it’s so perfect and then you start cracking up when it’s actually on you? It happens to the best of us. Let me save you some time. This, my friends, is what not to buy:

Im dying. It’s much worse in person. I’ve always wanted a Burberry coat so I contemplated splurging on this one during the sale. I tried it on and it was so bad. It fits more like a poncho, but it is a very stiff material, which causes it to hang very weird. It sticks out in the back and front about 6 inches on each side and runs HUGE. So this coat basically a tent.

Beauty & Spa Essentials


I’m extra impressed with the section of dresses this year! There are so many adorable short sleeve styles. I love the floral fit n flare below:

    1. They do go on sale, however most styles don’t sell out. I love the AG Legging Ankle (these tend to sell out) and Rag & Bone because it’s rare for them to go on sale!
