nordstrom anniversary sale early access

nordstrom early access

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off this past Thursday when it opened up to Nordstrom card holders for early access. Non-cardholders will be able to start shopping the sale at the end of this week.

I headed to Nordstrom bright and early on the first day of early access to grab my picks before anything that I wanted on my wishlist sold out. And though I did find some disappointment because there were some things sold out in my style, I was able to find a great selection of new additions to my closet. So, I am here to share what I tried on during my first round of shopping {as I will be returning for a follow up trip since I’m finding new things that I want as we speak}.

Note: Some items in this post are already sold out in stores and online. So, my advice is to open your Nordstrom card and gain access to the early access so that you can shop before it is open to the public.

nordstrom lace yoke tank

Chelsea28 Lace Yoke Tank (wearing size x-small) // $45.90

When you find a top that is absolutely amazing, you don’t think twice about getting it. This top comes in three colors and each one is adorable. I picked the pink color because I have too many tops in black and white. It fits true to size and has a great looser fit to flair out. Great to pair with a moto jacket.

nordstrom bell sleeve pullover

Gibson Bell Sleeve Cozy Fleece Pullover (wearing an x-small) // $39.90

This sweater is so comfortable. The material feels like I’m wearing a high thread sheet. It is going to be a perfect sweater for the fall and winter – especially wearing to work. Comfortable sweaters at work are absolutely essential.

nordstrom bateau neck sweater

Trouve Bateau Neck Sweater (wearing size small) // $45.90

This top can actually be worn in three different ways. I’m wearing it in the open neck style, but it you can also wear it off the shoulder and one shoulder. It fits true to size and snug. I typically wear an extra small, but went a little bigger because I wanted it to be a little loose.

nordstrom split back turtleneck
nordstrom anniversary sale

Free People Split Back Turtleneck (wearing size small) // $44.90

Mostly, I liked the way this top fit. The online minor thing that I didn’t like was that the split back went too long and with my petite size, I didn’t like how it accentuated my short size. I would get this in my actual size, but I wasn’t able to try on an extra small since it was sold out in that size.

nordstrom off the shoulder top

Trouve Off the Shoulder Poplin Sweater (wearing x-small) // $58.90

Loved this top! The only reason that I didn’t end up buying it is because as a workwear top, it would not be something that I could wear to school to teach in. It kind of goes against teacher dress code, and I couldn’t really think of any other place that I would wear it to. But it fit snug and the material was amazing. The top part is a sweater type material and the other shirt material is like wearing a regular button up.

nordstrom rib knit tunic

Calson Rib Knit Cotton Tunic (wearing size small) // $45.90

This sweater is super comfy. It’s a great buy because it is light enough to wear during the fall and thick enough to wear in the winter by itself or with another layer underneath. There is a zipper on each side that adds an extra element of style and allows you to put a high-waisted skirt underneath or jeans.

nordstrom bib top

Hinge Bib Top (wearing x-mall) // $45.90

This top was super cute. I’m not one for a bib top because, to me, it is not too flattering on me. But I loved the light pink color and the lightness of the fabric. I would pair this with a gray cardigan or a moto jacket depending on where I was wearing it to.

nordstrom ruffle cold shoulder sweater

Hinge Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater (wearing x-small) // $45.90

I’m not really big on the cold shoulder trend – it doesn’t fit me well. But I liked the shape of this sweater and I wanted to try it out. The design around the neck is so stylish and the ruffle gives it an extra feminine touch.

nordstrom portrait collar cotton top

BP. Portrait Color Cotton Top (wearing x-mall) // $29.90 &

I’ll be honest…I’m not a big fan of this top. It runs big and the only way to make it fit small is with a belt around the waist, but then it makes the top and bottom part look loose and the middle looked scrunched. The sleeves are really large and I felt like I was being swallowed by the top.

nordstrom floral kimono

Treasure & Bond Print Kimono (wearing size x-small/small) // $58.90 | BP. Lace Trim Satin Cami (wearing x-small) // $22.90

This kimono is a great pick for the fall. I’ve seen a lot of kimono styles in various stores, but this one is definitely top 10. I love the print and the kimono is so lightweight. If you are looking for one of those kimonos that flows in the wind behind you, this is not the one for you. But if you’re looking for one with a straight chic style – then you definitely want this one.

The satin cami was a great pick. This top can be paired with so many different outfits such as with a high-waisted skirt or pants in black to make it look like a one piece jumper or dress it down with a pair of jeans and a cardigan.

nordstrom moto jacket

nordstrom blanknyc
blanknyc moto jacket

BLANKNYC Embroidered Faux Leather Moto Jacket (size small) // $111.90

OMG! This moto jacket is the hottest pick of the sale right now. I’m actually surprised that it is not sold out right now and there are still sizes left. Literally, everyone has this jacket. They have the moto jacket in a size x-small, but I never get a jacket in my actual size. I typically go a size bigger because I like the slightly looser feel.

nordstrom color block sweater

BP. Front Button Slipdress (wearing size small) // $31.90 | Topshop Stripe Colorblock Cardigan (size 2) // $56.90

I’m so excited about this outfit combination – especially with me starting back to work in about a month. The loose fit of the dress makes it super comfortable and then paired with this colorblock sweater, it is literally going to be my most worn work outfit

{btw, the sweater is already sold out, but Nordstrom does do a restock to make sure to stay tuned for when restock happens to see whether they bring this back – not guarenteed though.}


lush floral dress

Lush Back Tie Blouson Dress (wearing x-small) // $29.90

I love this dress! It was my first item put in my “Yes! I’m buying” pile. I’m planning on wearing this during the remainder of this summer and then going into the fall season, I’ll put on a longline cardigan over it.

nordstrom work dress

Chelsea28 Open Back Ruffle Dress (wearing size small) // $58.90

The only thing that I didn’t like about this dress was the very open back. This would be a perfect workwear dress for anyone who is not in the teaching field, but I couldn’t get away with this at work and I don’t see myself wearing it anywhere else.

TOMS Majorca Peep Toe Bootie // $72.90 | BP. Kolo Flared-Heel Studded Bootie // $79.90

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has a great selection of boots and booties, and because of that sizes are selling out fast. I actually had three picks before the booties that I chose but they didn’t have them in my size online or in store. All of the boots and booties come in various colors for each style, so depending on what color and style slot you need to still fill in your closet, I would put those in your cart first and then start making your additional selections.
