Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Wear Now & Later

The first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for 2017 is here! If you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you are able to shop the sale early. If you do not have a Nordstrom card, the sale will open up to the rest of the public on July 21st, just one short week away!

I stayed up all night to find what I think to be the best deals out there so far. While the majority of the sale is geared towards Fall/Winter items, I successfully found several items that you can actually wear right now (Southerners- I got you!). I am headed into Nordstrom later this morning to try on items from the sale and share how everything fits and my honest review about each item. I will post about this on the blog over the next couple of days, but get a first look by following me on Instagram! Remember these items WILL sell out fast!


Although most items are geared towards the cooler weather, I was still able to find a pretty large selection of swim suits, tank tops and dresses! See more of my “wear it now” picks below!

My favorite items to shop, especially during early access, are jeans, boots, designer purses, and coats! See more of my “wear it later” picks below!

I will be covering the Nordstrom Sale lots over the next 3 weeks so make sure to bookmark IACTM as Nordstrom will add new items to the sale each day! I’ve gone ahead and added a NSALE 2017 tab to the top of the blog with a drop down menu to categorize all of my favorite sale items. This is where you will find the most up to date items as I will also be updating this every day. Happy shopping friends 🙂

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017


What’s so special about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If you have been around here long enough, you know I haunt sales like it’s my job. Unlike other sales that mark down old or last season’s trends, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has BRAND NEW items discounted by up to 70% from brands like Tory Burch, Top Shop, MAC, Stuart Weitzman, Free People, Rebecca Minkoff and SO many more! The sale runs for 3.5 weeks with new items added each day and at the end of the sale, everything goes back to full price.

When does the sale start?

July 13th– early access starts

July 21st– sale opens to the public

August 6th– last day to shop the sale

How do I get early access?

Only Nordstrom cardholders will gain access on July 13th- a full week before the rest of the world. The reason this matters is because most of the good stuff WILL sell out before public access opens. It happens every year. If you aren’t a fan of yet another credit card, Nordstrom also offers a debit card that you can hook up directly to your checking account. In fact you don’t even have to shop the early access sale with it, you just have to own it. You must apply for a card before July 9th in order to gain access. Apply here.

How to Shop it

I am not always a fan of online shopping, but when it comes to Nordstrom, they are one retailer that I always shop online verses going into the store. They offer free shipping and free returns so I don’t have to worry about things not working out. They also offer in store pick up if you want to bypass the sale crowds or curbside pickup! When it comes to this particular sale, each Nordstrom location will have items individual to that location whereas online will have thousands of the newest stock in more available sizing.

What to Shop For

The sale will bring out new items geared for Fall/Winter but there will also be items that you can wear now! While you might not be ready just yet to think about cold weather clothing, the deals that you will score now are well worth it later on. In years past my favorite items to shop for were leather boots, lightweight jackets, designer purses, jeans, everyday tops and beauty items. I highly suggest going through your closet now to see what items you actually need verses making impulse decisions when the sale comes.

How does IACTM cover the sale?

I will be shopping the sale in real time and will update you here and social media with all of the best items including those that I think will sell out super fast. To get an idea of how I will be covering the best items from the sale on my blog, check out last year’s sale round ups here. Make sure to follow along on my Instagram as well as I will be sharing sizing guides, favorite items, styling tips and giveaways!

This page is where I’ll be updating all my sale posts for you to browse as well as my giveaways, favorite picks and sale tricks. If you want to peruse a bit early check out the catalog here!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorite Picks

Here I go again with another Nordstrom sale post because this sale is just that good and it’s finally open to the non-carholders! *Que the angels singing * The cardholders might have snatched up some of the designer must haves and popular items, but there are still plenty of greatly discounted items for us mere peasants. I kid, I kid. But really, get your shopping carts ready cause it’s shopping time and there are some great deals to be had!

In case you didn’t already know, the reason why the Nordstrom sale is so great is because all of these items aren’t your normal end of the season junk items that they are just looking to get rid of. They are this season’s hottest items that go on sale for a limited time and then will go right back to their normal price once the sale is over.

While there are plenty of great picks for right now’s warm weather, I highly suggest going ahead and stocking up for Fall. Your Fall boots, coats and outerwear tend to usually be more expensive than those summer shorts and tank tops so grabbing them for a huge discount doesn’t hurt. You will see below that I started with a round up of items that you can use NOW. Think summer essentials. Next, I picked out my favorite work wear must haves that are great for all year round. Following that, are my top Fall favorites and lastly I picked out the best shoes for the cooler weather.

You will find that the majority of my picks are under $100 if not under $50 as well. My goal was to find the best deals out there for you guys! I also have another Nordstrom post that I did with my top picks under $100 if you want to check that out here. Otherwise, may your check books be ever in your favor and happy shopping! 😉

Nordstrom Sale Picks under $100

Nordstrom Sale Picks under $100 | NSale Favorites | It's All Chic To Me

It’s officially the best (sale) time of the year and the best part is that you can shop it directly from your couch and pj’s! Nordstrom is my go-to for just about anything I ever need. There is something for all budgets and the customer service is amazing. Free shipping and returns is a major plus!!

Currently the sale is only open to cardholders but don’t worry if you aren’t one. They came out with a sneak peak of what will be open to the public and there is nothing “sneak peak” about it. There are hundreds of pages to sort through, and yes it is all AMAZING items to sift through, but hundreds nonetheless. So I’ve made your life much easier and picked some of my favorite sale items for you so hopefully you have a good starting point!

Since you all know I like to ball on a budget, all of my picks (minus this bag and these jeans) are under $100. I do want to point out just a few pieces I have been coveting for a long time and might just have to give in to. Do you remember the beautiful Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots that were all the rage last year? Or the classic Tory Burch riding boots? While the sale is a great time to stock up on budget friendly pieces, it’s also the time to grab that piece you’ve always wanted. After all it’s on major sale, so it’s almost like you are making money right?! 😉

The sale extends over the next three weeks and will be open to the public shortly so get your shopping carts ready! I will be adding items throughout the sale to my shop page so make sure you check back regularly for all of the best sales.
