It’s time for the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s my favorite time of year and the one time where I allow myself a little shopping spree for me. I budget for this sale all year, and it really is Christmas in July for me.
If you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before, you’re in for a treat. Every July, Nordstrom puts brand new Fall Merchandise on sale up to 40% off for just 3 weeks. If you have a Nordstrom Credit Card, you get to shop a whole week early. That’s important because the items in this sale are available in limited quantities, and the most popular items sell out before the sale is open to the public. For real. It’s crazy. Make sure you check out my post on How To Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Like a Pro.
How I Shop The Anniversary Sale
My philosophy in promoting this sale is a bit different from other bloggers you see out there on Instagram. First of all I’m spending my own money & I have a budget. While I’m a card holder & can shop a week before the sale starts, there are people who have higher status who can shop days before me.
While I do love this sale and there are a lot of great deals, I’m not into purchasing a new wardrobe every single year. I use this sale to stock up on basics, and add a few pieces that will work with my existing wardrobe. I also usually clean out my closet before this sale & post things to Poshmark.
I’ve had a chance to look through most of the items in the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and there’s some really cute stuff! This year, I’m trying to stick to a $500 budget for myself. I also want to pick up some gifts, basics for my husband, and a pair of shoes for my son. Those items come out of different categories in our YNAB budget.
So, what am I excited about ordering this year? Let’s check them out! (Once I’m able to pick up my order, I will update this post with pictures of me in the items.)
I really love circle-style cardigans. I like how they cover your rear, are slightly longer, but aren’t long in the front. It’s a cute, comfortable style that is different enough to be interesting. This year, this Caslon version looks really cool. I love the sheen on the fabric, and it looks like a thicker weight. I also love the thumb holes. I’m going to order this in black, dark grey, and pink, but I may not end up keeping all of those. Good thing for free returns! It looks like it also comes in a light grey and an olive green. It’s on sale for $45.90, regularly $65. It says it runs big, so I will be sizing down to a XXS.
These were not on my radar at all until I saw the Camo version briefly in a preview. I don’t have anything like these in my wardrobe, and I think they will look cute with jeans, a white tee and the Caslon Off Duty Knit Cardigan. These also come in black and a light grey color. They are on sale for $59.90 and I’ll be ordering my regular size 7.
3. BP Cozy Joggers & Cozy Top
I’ve been looking for cute joggers to wear around the house, and these are a great price! They look super comfortable and come in several different colors. I’m leaning toward the blue with the white hearts. The joggers & top are each $25.90.
This camisole sells out quickly every single year. I need a black camisole, so that’s what I’ll be picking up. It’s $25.90 and comes in several colors.
These are my favorite panties and they are cheaper when you buy three. It’s time for me to stock up, so I’ll be getting 6 pair. I wear an XS. They are on sale for $14.90 or 3 for $40.
I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty deals. They always have great sets and accessories on top of a great sale price. This year, I’m getting some new Beauty Blenders, and it comes with a glitter carrying case for travel. I’ve been looking for a travel case for my beauty blender, and $35 for a case with two new sponges is a deal!
I need to upgrade my pajamas in a bad way, and these are so cute and comfy! Plus, they’re a great price!
I love to separate these packs and give the candles as teacher & hostess gifts! There’s also a Dyptique set if you’ve got the budget to spend a little more. It is $55 and has 5 candles in it making them $11 a piece. How fancy will your teachers & hostesses think you are! It can be our little secret!
I buy one of these every year. This year, I’m adding the cream/oatmeal color to my closet. Be sure to size down one, this one always runs large. I get a XXS.
What I’m Thinking About
I love the look of these, but I don’t know if I really need them. I’m on the fence. We’ll see. I love the baseball style and the colors are cute. Plus, there’s a camo & grey version! They are on sale for $18.90.
These are pricy and will bust my $500 budget. But I love the camo version that I got last year, and the faux leather leggings that I have look plasticy compared to these. We’ll see. They are on sale for $
I need another long sleeve tee, but I may pass if I’m going to bust the budget.
This is a really popular item in this year’s sale, and it is sure to sell out quickly. Leopard/Cheetah print is so in for Fall, and there are a lot of items in the Anniversary Sale sporting the pattern. I’m not sure about this one, and I want to try it on.
I’ve heard these jeans are amazing and they’re under $50. I’m just not sure about the high-waist style on my body.
This top looks really cute, but I want to see if it looks really cute on me.
I love these tees. They give my other favorite tees a run for their money. And this price is fantastic! I don’t really need any tees, and I don’t normally do prints, but something about these tiny stars is catching my eye.
Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I actually end up getting from the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I usually like to post pics throughout Early Access. Check my stories for reviews of what I got, and I’ll do a wrap up on the blog next week in time for the sale to open to the public. I’ll also be updating the Stacy’s Savings Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Page with links to my favorite picks by category!
My plan is to place my order at 12:30 for curbside pickup. Hopefully, my local store has everything on my list. If not, I think I’m going to spring the $12 for expedited shipping. It’s a new strategy I’m trying with this year’s sale. Also, I’m going to make tomorrow my Double Points Day!
