Hi friends! Hope your week is going well, we are still here trying to battle the heat. One of the plus sides of living in a beach town is that we live in a beach town… the downside is that NONE of the houses have AC!! Most of the year we don’t really need it, fans and open windows are mostly all we need, but during the few weeks a year when we get major heat waves, it can be brutal. Raj and I usually park up in the living room where it seems to stay the most cool, sit on front of fans and chow on Otter Pops and iced water, and we move all of his water toys into the shade to keep busy. It makes for some pretty classic 90’s summer nostalgia.
I hope you are all getting as excited for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as I am. I plan to shop right at midnight when it launches then will just pick up in store tomorrow morning. While I am shopping I will create a list of all the items I purchase, the ones I plan to keep my eye on, and share those in a blog post tomorrow. Then once I have the items in hand I will photograph those on and styled to share those throughout the week and even throughout the entire sale. Remember if you want to shop before general public (7/12-7/19), you can do so if you have the Nordstrom Retail card, if you don’t have one but want to apply or get more info on it you can apply here. You WILL be able to see the items on sale and even shop them, but just a heads up if you don’t use your Nordstrom retail card it will not allow you to check out the items. Also, I am currently running TWO Nordstrom Gift Card giveaways here on the blog, have you entered yet?! Double the chance to win for all of you so make sure you enter, you can find the posts here and here!
Earlier this week I was given a PDF to preview the Anniversary Sale and got to see what items will be on sale. I will say I feel better about this sale than last year’s, there are some really great brands included in the sale and some awesome things you can use and wear now and all year long – those are the things I am looking for! If you saw my post from Monday, you know now how I approach the sale, after browsing the preview PDF I made a list of the brands I plan to shop for. What I usually do when shopping is select the department on the left side category options, then click on all of the brands I want to shop. This helps me browse faster and also keeps me from seeing things I don’t care for. You can also select the option of items available in store so you can pick up same day, shop by size, category, pretty much the best and quickest way to browse the sale is by narrowing down what you already know you are looking for, this is what helps me from feeling overwhelmed when shopping online. Remember, Nordstrom also has an awesome return policy, so if you see something you think you may want just get it now and return if you change your mind. This also helps when you are torn on sizes! I compiled a list of the brands I plan to shop for the sale, I already saw the items I have in mind to purchase so once the sale hits I will narrow down my search to these brands and will then make my final selection, I thought it would be cool to share here so you can have an idea of what items will be on sale and what I am personally looking for.
