Hey y’all! It’s time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means the time for planning our fall closets while it’s 1,000 degrees out is here 😉 Seriously, this is THE BEST sale to snag new pieces for fall and here is everything you need to know for shopping it!

HOW DO I SHOP IT?
You can most definitely shop in-store, but the more popular option is online. I suggest shopping the sale online simply because there are always more options available, you can easily narrow down what you’re searching for and it’s quicker. Popular items tend to sell out quickly so online is also the most convenient way for monitoring when they come back in-stock.
Skeptical about shopping online due to sizing? My tip for you is to order 2 sizes and send back the one that doesn’t work. Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns so it’s easy enough to send things back!
Another tip for shopping this sale is to go into it with a list. I personally love doing this because then I don’t overspend, I know exactly what to look for and I don’t get overwhelmed. A couple things on my list include
