This cardigan has definitely been “it” cardigan for quite some time now! I know you have seen this exact chunky knit cardi all over Instagram for the last few months, but I just got my hands on it! I just could never justify paying full price on it so I patiently waited for it to go on sale. I happened to stumbled across this beauty at my local TJ Maxx for only $39.99 (OMG!!!) but I did find it in stock in all 4 colors and sizes here. I am seriously considering adding the green one to my closet!

How to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It is almost that time – the biggest and best sale of the year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This sale is always highly anticipated and features brand new fall and winter pieces at super-sale prices. It is famous for having hot items sell out very quickly. I want to make sure you are prepped and ready to shop ‘til you drop!

 

WHY SHOP THE #NSALE
This sale is your first look at brand new, on-trend items for the upcoming season. Normally, retailers will discount their items when they are trying to clear their inventory, but the Anniversary Sale features NEW merchandise at deep discounts! Items are on sale in almost every category from men’ and women’s fashion, beauty products, home décor and more!

 

SAVE THE DATES
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s public access will be July 21-August 6. However, Nordstrom cardholders get early access from July 13-20 so you can snag all your favorite sale items early. When the sale ends prices will go back up on August 7.

 

SHOP EARLY
In order to have early access, you need to be a Nordstrom debit or credit cardholder. You can sign up online here. If you sign up and are approved before July 9 you will receive a $20 Nordstrom Note to go towards your purchase during the sale (even better)! It is absolutely 100% worth it to get a Nordstrom card just for this sale. I finally caved and got a Nordstrom debit card last year just before the sale and I love all the perks! You can earn 2 points for every dollar you spend throughout the year and get notes that can go towards purchases at both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack.

 

HOW TO SHOP
SHOP ONLINE. It is always easier to shop all of the discounts from the comfort of your own couch in your pajamas, eating Cheetos, and binge watching your favorite TV show. Nordstrom also offers free shipping and free returns, so if something doesn’t fit just send it back at no charge to you!

I know major sales like this can be overwhelming, but this is where I come in! Most people don’t love spending hours and hours scrolling through hundreds of pages of sale items, but this is my kind of therapy. I am going to go through all of the sale pages FOR you to pick out all the good stuff so you don’t have to! Be sure to check my blog and keep an eye on my Instagram (@chelseagodfrey_) throughout the sale. I will be posting about some of the items on my #NSALE wish list, fall styling tips, and more!

 

PLAN AHEAD
If you’re like me, your fall and winter clothes are packed away, but now is the time to pull out your cool weather wardrobe and see what items you need or want to add to your closet. There are some fall staples that sell out quickly:

  • Taupe booties
  • Designer handbags – especially Kate Spade and Tory Burch
  • Distressed denim
  • Cozy cardigans
  • Felt hats
  • Slouchy tees (especially if they’re striped)
  • Plaid everything

 

You can get a little sneak peak of some hot items that will be on sale in The Anniversary Catalog that is currently LIVE. I’ve already circled some pretty pieces to keep my eye on!

Check back often for more #NSALE goodness soon. The countdown is ON!

Effortlessly,
Chelsea
