The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially started! I’m sharing what I purchased along with all of my initial favorite picks. Keep in mind that new items will be added daily but these first items may or may not be restocked! Things are already flying off the shelves and the sale hasn’t even been live for 24 hours so if you see something you want, don’t hesitate on clicking that purchase button. Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns so if something doesn’t work out, you can just send it back! Better to be safe than sorry as leaving something in your basket for more than a few minutes can mean you miss out!
I personally opted to pick up the majority of my purchases. This means that Nordstrom will pull all of the items that you purchased and have them waiting for you at the customer service desk for you to pick up. Literally within a couple of hours! This is by far a better option than fighting the crows. I went before the sale started yesterday and it was already a madhouse! Also, there is almost double the selection online as there is in store as many of these items are “online only”.
Every year I stock up on “basics” meaning cotton tees, denim, cardigans, and leggings as these are the most worn pieces in my closet and truly are the most versatile. I love these $18 long sleeve tees for layering when it starting to get a little cooler. The striped ones are always so cute peaking out from underneath a sweater! Last year I purchased this suede moto jacket and got way more use out of it than I thought! It goes with everything: jeans, sundresses, you name it! Grab it while it’s almost $60 off. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these and I highly suggest getting them in multiple colors.
Happy shopping friends and may the sale God’s be ever in your favor 😉
Set your alarm clocks because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes live TONIGHT for all cardholders. PSA: it is not too late to get approved for a Nordstrom credit card here.
There is only one sale of the year that could pull me out of a deep slumber to shop. But let’s be honest it won’t even be a deep slumber because I will hardly sleep! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is literally like Christmas morning minus the part you are the one playing Santa Claus and using real money instead of make believe North Pole money. Nonetheless, it it completely worth it. In fact, the past two years I’ve taken off work the first day of the sale so that I could wake up and shop it! Crazy lady status I know.
If you have anymore questions before or during the sale, please do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com or send me a message on Instagram! I am happy to answer your questions or send you any links that you might. Good luck friends and may the sale God’s be ever in your favor 😉
I’ve been planning and plotting a BIG surprise for you ladies! As many of you know and love, I do 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways every year in December leading up to Christmas. The prizes have gotten bigger and better every single year! You can check out 2017’s awesome prizes here. I’ve been told by quite a few of you that these giveaways truly are the most wonderful time of the year and it’s always so much fun for me to be able to give back to you ladies for your continuous support and encouragement. Well drumroll please… I’d like to introduce 12 Days of NSALE Giveaways! Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is literally like Christmas in July, Santa Shelbi is back in action!
The giveaways start TODAY and will run through next Friday, the 20th! A new giveaway is announced every single day between July 9th and 20th on Instagram stories and the blog here. Each giveaway will only run for 24 hours so a new winner is announced every day!
Half of the prizes will be Nordstrom gift cards: $25, $50, $100 and up plus there will be multiple winners some of the days! These giveaways are meant to help you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because it is truly Christmas in July y’all! The other half of the giveaways will be fun surprises and boy do we have some BIG ones. The average dollar value for majority of these prizes are $200+.
Unlike 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways, the NSALE giveaways will be strictly announced on Instagram stories and not on my Instagram feed. Why? Because I want to specifically give back to my followers that interact with and support me on a daily basis! You are the real MVPs! That being said, you will want to make sure that you are checking my Instagram each day to find out what I am giving away and how to enter.
To enter, every day will be a little different but will always be thoroughly explained in my stories. For 6 of the days I am strictly giving away something on my own. For these days, all you have to do is post the story template that I give you ladies to your Instagram stories and tag me. You can find the story template of the day on my Instagram stories and on the blog here.
For the remaining 6 days, I will be partnering with some of my favorite blogger babes! All you will have to do on these days is follow myself and the blogger(s) that I pair up with. Disclaimer: each giveaway will NEVER be more than 3 girls- super easy and hopefully you will find some other accounts that you enjoy following! Plus, chances are you already follow most of them because I’ve shared all of them before with you ladies. I have only partnered up with bloggers that I genuinely call friends and enjoy following.
I’m giving you ladies so many way to gain extra entries! Each time you do one of these, it’s an additional entry!!
1. Follow me and anyone I partner up with in the Liketoknow.it app. See below for instructions.
2. Share any image to your Instagram or Instagram Stories of what you are buying from the Nordstrom sale and tag me! Can be an image of me, you or a screenshot of your order.
3. Like/Comment on my Instagram pictures
Each giveaway will only run for 24 hours and will be announced on my blog here. Just click “giveaways”. I suggest bookmarking this tab so that you have quick access to all things Nordstrom Sale, including the giveaways and winners!
Now it’s time for Santa Shelbi to get back to the workshop so without further adieu…
If you’ve seen my Instagram account lately, you’ve 100% seen my obsession with hair scarves. They are a God send for dirty hair days or just sprucing up an otherwise simple outfit. My favorite places to buy quality hair scarves are Madewell, Free People and Anthropologie. If you are looking for cheaper options, I suggest trying your local Walmart or Target as I will periodically find them there as well!
A couple pieces of advice: firstly, make sure you look for ones that are silk (faux silk works too!) as these are going to work best. They are easier to manipulate, stay put better, and overall look nicer! Secondly, don’t pay too much of attention to the pattern since once it is rolled up, you will barely see it! Instead, look at the overall colors instead. See below for a round up of some of my favorites!
