*2019 EDIT: READ MY 2019 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE BLOG POSTS HERE!
The countdown is on, girlfriend!!! Less than 24 hours until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is L-I-V-E and I’m all sorts of excited. My favorite part of blogging [other than connecting with you guys] is content creation. I love shooting, styling and creating so I’m excited for that aspect of the sale.
I’m also obviously excited for adding a few new pieces to my closet! I mentioned Monday that we gutted our walk in closet. I think after this weekend, we will have a more organized area in there. I wanted to remove the things I was holding on to that I truly never wore and make space for new items that I’l get use out of. What perfect timing that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off this week just in time for all this closet spaceI have, right? 😆
Growing up I never even knew about Nordstrom. They don’t have a location in Maine, so I had never heard of them! I only really knew of places that were in the Portland Mall and LL Bean [headquarters are in Maine!]. It wasn’t until I started my first job upon moving to Boston that I heard of them. My friend Leeann really loved Nordstrom and raved about their customer service. This is around the time I started blogging and trying out new retailers.
Four years later, Nordstrom is one of my top go-to’s for everything from work out leggings to work blouses and beauty products to sneakers due to the free shipping/returns, amazing customer services and the large set of inventory. Many times when I order from another retailers, the items are sold out before I share them with you on the blog. Nordstrom has a huge inventory making it easier for you to shop my outfits.
Anyways I bring this up because I feel like Nordstrom has a reputation like Bloomindales or Lord & Taylor where the brands sold are very expensive. Nordstrom is different than these retailers because they carry a large chunk of affordable brands and products. You can grab anything from a $10 tee all the way through a $6k bag [side note – that’s insane].
Today I thought it’d be the perfect time to share my favorite affordable Nordstrom brands, just in time for you to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tonight/tomorrow morning [whichever time zone you’re in lol] or on July 12th when it goes live to the public.
