TODAY IS THE DAY! NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE EARLY ACCESS IS HERE!! CUE THE PARTY HORNS, PEOPLE!
Hand me a paper bag, remind me to breathe, and fetch me a coffee. It’s opening day FOR CARDHOLDERS for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! And lucky me, I’m a cardholder! #duh And lucky for y’all, I shopped the sale yesterday (and was a FREAKING MACHINE). So I already have pictures and fit tips for some AMAZING items to share with all of you today!
Today I’m going to be showing you MY VERY FAVORITE items so far! Make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram too because I will also be posting often there today and through the weekend. I’ll have some really great outfits on instagram stories as well!
I’m ready, ladies. I got a good night’s sleep (just kidding, I slept like 1 1/2 hours), and I ate a hearty breakfast of egg whites and steel cut oats (just kidding, I had a glass of V8 and a handful of Cheez-Its). STILL. No worries. I. AM. READY. I do my best work under pressure.
Let’s talk strategy for a quick second before we get started. Because Nordstrom has FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS, I wouldn’t recommend browsing leisurely and waiting till the weekend to place your order. I promise you, certain items will be gone if you do that. I heard it time and time again last year, and I don’t want you to miss out on some of the best items.
If you have a handful of things you know you want, order those IMMEDIATELY. After you place that first order of YOUR ABSOLUTE MUST HAVES, go back and place another order if you’d like after you have more time to casually look around. You can place 25 different orders if you want to :), and unless you choose to expedite your order, all the shipping will be free, so it won’t cost you a thing. #thatswhatimtalkingabout
OKAY, LADIES. LET’S DO THIS.
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE EARLY ACCESS FAVORITE FINDS
Right off the bat…right out of the gate…we need to talk about blaridgans.
They are SOFTER THAN SOFT and COZIER THAN COZY. And for those of you that are new around here, BLARDIGAN is a word that I made up, but I would like to think it’s part of many people’s everyday vernacular now. I mean, if you type “blardigan” in on the Nordstrom site, you are lead to a blardigan landing page for cyring out loud! So, what is a blardigan?
Blardigan- noun – An article of clothing that is a perfect marriage between a BLanket and a cARDIGAN.
YES. FREAKING. M’AM.
And I use the word as if it is actually is a word, and I hope you do too. I currently own 4 blardigans (1 is actually Carter’s – yes, my son has his own), and I’ve probably given over 20 as gifts. They are perfect gifts for graduation, new mommys, Christmas, Mother’s Day, and JUST BECAUSE gifts. I’ve also given countless to friends and family who are going through a hard time. I feel that giving a blardigan is like giving a hug. Right now is definitely the time to get blardigans as Christmas gifts for your loved ones as well. I’ve given them to my mom, mother in law, my sister, my sister in law, and a grandmother.
My name is Sheaffer, and I’M IN LOVE WITH BLARDIGANS. Some might say obsessed. Which I think is a fair assessment. You will be too. In fact, you can click HERE for all of the Barefoot Dreams items available in the sale (includes throws, a couple of pillows, and the socks for UNDER $10)!
Do not pass go, do not collect $200, just buy it before your size and color of choice are gone. I present to you…..the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Blardigan selection.
Now wait…this is important… I don’t love the new blardigan. It’s a different material (really bulky and reallllllly hot) and not flattering. THANK HEAVENS two of the crowd favorites are in the sale.
THE BABY BLARDIGAN
The baby blardigan is the shorter of the two blardigans, it has a rounded hem, and it has pockets. I think it’s the easiest to wear out of the house because of it’s shape. I do wear it out of the house on occasion, but I wear it in the house ALL THE DANG TIME. The x-small/small is the size I prefer. This year I’m getting this color for myself. My other baby blardigan is two years old, and I’ve worn it just about every day for 2 years, so it’s time. I’m getting the light color so not every single piece of dog hair will show up on it. #puppymomproblems
You’ll learn more about the jeans and the sneaks later in the post. They are also FAVORITE FINDS!
baby blardigan / white tee / earrings /star necklace/ wit and wisdom jeans / adidas sneakers
Here are the other 3 colors you have to choose from.
THE HOODED BLARDIGAN
I hear that a lot of ladies like the hooded blardigan the most. It’s the longest (totally long enough to be worn with leggings), it’s hem is straight across, it has a hood (duh), and it has pockets too. I wear this one around town too.
Sizing Tips: I’m wearing the x-small/small.
hooded blardigan / white tee / earrings /star necklace/ wit and wisdom jeans / adidas sneakers
I love the stripe found on the one on the left.
MY FAVORITE SHOES FROM THE SALE
Whenever I shop the sale, I always head to the shoes first. WHY? Shoes sell out the quickest. I’m betting that these first 2 pairs of shoes are going to go fast (especially in the most popular sizes). They are the two shoes that are in most of my outfits today and will be throughout the remainder of the sale, so you’ll be seeing a lot of them.
FLAT ANKLE BOOTIES
I always get a pair of relatively flat ankle booties. I tried on several pairs today, but these were head and shoulders above the rest! They also come in black. They are VERY comfy and will be great for both Fall and Spring. I love this neutral color, the deep cut out (so flattering), and the dimension that the design gives.
I recommend sizing down a 1/2 size in these.
Click HERE for the flat ankle booties.
The color of these booties were what initially drew me to them (but they come in 2 other colors as well). Last year my heeled booties were taupe, and they were a bit dressier, so I was super pumped to find these. I love the height the heel gives, but they are comfy and super easy to walk in.
These were true to size for me.
Click HERE for the heeled booties.
Do you remember the camo wedge sneakers I got last year? Well those proved to me that I would wear the heck out of a wedge sneaker. I LOVE THESE NEUTRAL ONES. Comfy as all get out, and they will go with everything! Now, this picture makes them look a lot darker than they actually are. I got the “taupe” and they are just a really great neutral! I would say the color on the site is a true representation.
True to size for me.
Click HERE for the wedge sneakers.
Need a new pair of sneakers? Check out these babies! They are incredibly comfy and just plain cool looking. I’ll be wearing these around town with all sorts of different casual outfits. (See me sporting them later in the post with blardigan!)
True to size.
Click HERE for the sneakers. I got the neutral color, but I love the black as well.
MY FAVORITE JEANS FROM THE SALE
GIRLS. There is sooooooooooooooo much denim in the sale this year. I was completely overwhelmed by my choices. I tried on A LOT that I didn’t like, but a few rose to the top! I am really excited about my jean picks!
AG FRAYED HEM JEANS
I cannot believe that I didn’t get a close up shot of my favorite AGs from the sale, but they are the jeans that you’ll see below in the outfit with the pink Leith cardigan. I did have to size up to a 28 in these. Y’all know I love AGs, and although there are several in the sale this year, this pair was my favorite by far. You’ll be seeing them in lots of future outfits. AG has always been my GO TO for premium denim.
KUT FROM THE KLOTH STEP HEM JEANS
These were sent to me early by Kut From The Kloth, AND I LOVE THEM. They are stretchy and have a cute step hem (shorter in the front and longer in the back) that give them a modern feel. They are super comfy and flattering. True to size for me (I’m wearing a 4), but I would size down if between sizes.
Click HERE for the Kut jeans. ONLY $59.90!!! They are great jeans at a fantastic price point. Click HERE for the booties (size down a 1/2).
Here are the same Kut from the Kloth jeans with a belt and the cognac booties.
WIT AND WISDOM ANKLE JEANS
If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you know I’ve been a loyal fan of Wit and Wisdom for several years now and their Ab-solution technology. They have lots of jeans in the sale this year, but these dark wash ankle jeans are the favorite from their brand that I tried on today. I went with the 4P (I’m 5’4″) because I wanted them to be perfect for booties, and I like when a tiny bit of skin peeks out from in between the top of the boot and the bottom hem of your jeans. You’ll be seeing other Wit and Wisdom jeans highlighted throughout the sale from me, but these are my favorite for today.
These are ONLY $44.90!
MY FAVORITE JEWELRY FROM THE SALE
I can’t believe I didn’t get close up pictures of these items, but I only bought 3 pieces of jewelry yesterday!
THESE EARRINGS that you are going to see in a lot of my outfit pictures are FABULOUS. I won’t be surprised at all if these babies sell out today. They make quite a statement.
THIS SWEET LITTLE NECKLACE that is UNDER $35! I fell in love with the stars.
And THIS SET OF STACK RINGS that I think are so much fun!
OH WAIT! I forgot I also got THESE BLINGY BRACELETS. They had some like these in the sale last year, but they hurt when I put them on (even though I have small wrists). This year’s version doesn’t hurt! I got both the gold and the silver. Nadri actually has TONS OF GREAT STUFF in the sale! This wasn’t at my store, but I’m ordering this necklace this morning!
Kendra Scott does have some other great items in the sale and Gorjana does too…..but the above items definitely stood out to me. I’m sure I’ll pick up some other jewelry as the sale goes on, and I’ll highlight those pieces as I get them.
MY FAVORITE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFITS!!!
So now that I’ve highlighted my favorite shoes, jeans, and jewelry…I thought it would be fun to put entire outfits together with all of my favorites.
COCOON CARDIGAN and BASIC TEE
I loved the Leith cardigan 2 years ago, but I didn’t love it last year. Well… I LOVE IT AGAIN THIS YEAR! It’s such an incredible deal and is a perfect closet staple that will be a total work horse in my closet. And it’s ONLY $45.90!
SIZING TIPS: Size down for sure in the cardi, I’m wearing an XX small. I’m wearing a small in the tee, and it’s still quite loose. I sized up in the jeans to a 28 and the wedge sneakers were true to size for me.
And make sure you notice the necklace. So delicate! So pretty! So inexpensive!
cocoon cardigan / white tee / earrings / star necklace / AG jeans / wedge sneakers
And here are some of the other colors. 5 colors total!
Okay, girls. THIS JACKET IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE HOT TICKET ITEMS FOR SURE. I’m actually worried it might sell out TODAY. My pictures don’t do it justice, but I promise that people were oohing and aahing over this bad boy in person. YOU AREN’T GOING TO BELIEVE THE PRICE. IT’S $65.90. WHAT? I KNOW.
It has gold hardware, but it’s not too much and it doesn’t look cheap. And it has a hood. THIS JACKET IS AWESOME. And I seriously can’t get over the price. It looks MUCH more expensive than it is.
SIZING TIPS: I’m wearing a small in the jacket in the picture, but I’m ordering a medium. They were already out in mediums at my store, but I’m ordering it first thing this morning. I definitely needed the additional room, and I’m often a medium in jackets like this. I’m wearing a 4P in the jeans (I’m 5’4″ and wanted a little ankle to show) and the booties are true to size for me.
moto jacket / white tee / earrings /short necklace/wit and wisdom ankle jeans / cognac heeled booties
RUFFLE SLEEVE TEE
This is a great basic tee with a little something special going on with the sleeve. It also comes in a blush pink. This is a perfect WEAR IT NOW piece. It’s a nice thick material and will be great on it’s own as well as layered under jackets.
SIZING TIPS: I sized up to a medium in this tee for a little extra room in the chest.
ruffle sleeve tee / earrings/ kut from the kloth jeans / belt / cognac booties
GREAT BASIC SWEATER AND SCARF
I now you can’t really see the sweater in this picture, but trust me, it’s a good one! And it’s just $29.90! It’s reallllly soft, has a v neck, and it’s long enough to cover your bum. The scarf has such great colors, and I love the plaid. This picture also does a great job of highlighting the one pair of earrings I’ve purchased so far.
SIZING TIPS: I’m wearing a small in the sweater.
v neck sweater / scarf / earrings / kut from the kloth jeans / flat booties
I will continue to show more head to toe outfits that I’ve styled throughout the sale, but that’s it for entire outfits for the day. But don’t go yet, I have some very important items to still talk about!
Next up, two VERY IMPORTANT items….
See, I told ya.
THE FAMOUS NATORI BRA
I first purchased this bra several years ago during the sale, and I hope to get a new one every year during the sale till the end of time! It’s expensive, but I have found out it’s SO WORTH the money. I named it a MUST HAVE a couple of years ago, and I know soooo many of you are believers now too! If you doubt me, just check out the online reviews! The cups are perfectly rounded, it has just the right amount of lining, and the material is oh so comfy. And look how pretty the straps are! Click HERE for the bra! True to size for me. Find all Natori bras in the sale HERE, including some that are better for smaller chested gals.
They also have some great pajamas too, I’ll be showing you this set tomorrow.
MORE OUTFITS TO COME + ATHLETIC WEAR ON SALE
Tomorrow’s post will have several more outfits, I just didn’t have time or space to get them all in today’s post! I’ll continue to post throughout the sale of course, but here are a couple of categories you might want to check out today:
Don’t forget ZELLA GEAR! There is A TON OF IT IN THE SALE!
I ADORE THESE HIGH WAISTED CROP LEGGINGS. They come up above my belly button, and they suck me in like crazy, while somehow still allowing me to breathe and be 100% comfortable. THEY ARE MAGIC. Once I tried the high waisted option, I have never purchased the regular rise again.
SIZING TIPS: I’m wearing a small in both the sweatshirt and the leggings. I normally size up in Zella tops, but I didn’t have to this time.
sweatshirt / high waisted crop leggings
And I will definitely be picking up some Under Armour for the 9 year old Under Armour freak that lives with me and pretty much refuses to wear anything that doesn’t have an elastic waistband. #iunderstand
GAME ON LADIES. Go forth and shop your faces off. AND EVERYBODY REPEAT AFTER ME: WE’RE NOT SPENDING MONEY, WE’RE SAVING MONEY. #thinkit #believeit

I’ve been up for a bit and i kept refreshing your page – lol
I always love your picks.
Can i say your hair and makeup look beautiful? After trying on two things, I would have been a hot mess.
I have the suede Blanknyc moto in my cart and a pair of boots.
Thanks for all the fun!
Kathy! You are too sweet! I was most definitely a hot and sweaty mess, but I sure was having fun! You better hurry on that moto. I bet it sells out today!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂 p.s. I love it when readers from way back when comment. Thank you so much for being a loyal follower!
My husband just came downstairs and said, “Why is your shirt inside out?” lol Because I got dressed in the dark to check out the sale! I had never heard of Nordstrom or their big sale until I found you!
haha I have been up doing the same! Yayyyy! For the best day of the year. I know exactly what I’m going for this morning. I’m a tough fit so I’m trekking into the store but it is always fun to mix and match outfits! Thanks, Sheaffer!
I hope you have good luck in the store, Lindsay! Sizes were already picked over yesterday, and only Level 4 cardholders could shop!!!
On the Calson sneaker yours look like they are grey? The only dark option is black other than a tan and a burgundy. I just wanted to check with you. I have been shopping since two so I could be sleep deprived. Ha!
Hi, Amanda! The single shot of the sneakers definitely makes them look darker than they actually are. Mine are definitely the “taupe”! I’ll go back and mention that in the post! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hi. Any strapless bras you would recommend?
Hi, Marilyn! It’s not in the sale, but I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible strapless. I wear it even when I don’t have to wear a strapless. It’s THAT comfortable! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
You are too stinkin’ cute!! Thanks for doing a lot of the foot work for us! I was able to grab the elusive Leah cardigan in that beautiful pink color that got away from me last year!! YAY!! I also got some great jeans and booties. I purchased two sizes in each just to be one the safe side. Did you get to try on the Barefoot Dreams cardigan? I was curious as to how it fit and if you liked it as well as the originals.
Hi, Nicole! Sounds like you got some great stuff! I mentioned right before talking about the baby blardigan that I do not like the new one at all. 🙁 It’s a different material, way bulkier, and wayyyyyyyyyyyyy hotter. I didn’t get it for myself, but I did get the “stone” baby blardigan to add to my collection. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I totally missed the sentence about the new blardigan on the blog. I started shopping pre-coffee. LOL. I have so many blardigans and love them all. I got the hoody last year and actually did a dance in the store when I snagged the last one. ; )
I also ordered the stone colored baby blardigan for the same reason – golden retriever fur won’t show as much as it would on gray or black- anything for the puppy!
How do the arms fit on the Leith cardigan? Are they a tighter fit or loose? I’m trying to decide on sizing – I’m much broader in the shoulder/chest so sometimes cardigans and button downs are tight in the shoulder/upper arm area on me.
Also – did you check out any flats? I am all set with my bootie selection but am looking for good black and nude flats.
Hi, Meghan! I haven’t checked out flats yet, but I will make a point to do so! The arms are fitted in the Leith cardigan, but not tight AT ALL! I hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Thanks for the quick reply – looks like the sweater will be going in my second order of the day!
I shopped right at 2:00 am when the sale went live. I have also already placed 3 orders out of panic of sell outs! I’m not spending money I’m SAVING money. I’m looking forward to earrings (bauble bar pair, jcrew pair & Kendra Scott pair, of course). Nike and adidas tennis shoes because #choices and #freereturns. Vince camuto, Ugg waterproof, and lucky booties (choices again!). Another blardigan. And a winter jacket!
I don’t have a Nordstrom anywhere close so none of my friends (except my blogger friends!) really shop the sale. Happy #nsale day!
Sounds like you got some awesome stuff, Meredith! Make sure you enter the contest over on ig with your finds! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Shopping the sale this year was kind of weird for me since I’m pregnant but it’s too early to be thinking about maternity clothes, but at the same time, I don’t want to waste money on stuff I won’t fit into. I wound up going with the Zella cropped leggings, the Leith cardigan, two pairs of shoes (Dr. Scholl’s and UGG slide-ons), some Voluspa candles and a North Face (since those last forever even if it barely fits this year.) Under different circumstances I would have been ALL OVER that moto jacket,
Oh and through the years I have become the proud owner of two baby bladigans, two original blardigans and one hooded blardigan. I work from home and wear them daily!!!
Shay Shull says
You are THE SOURCE for the Anniversary Sale!!
Any extra points for cardholders during Early Access?
You can choose for today to be one of your triple points days!
Wow! Incredible like always! Thanks so much for giving us all of the amazing tips! Too many tabs open on my computer. I’ve got to get serious and narrow this all down!
April Parrish says
My first purchase this morning was a couple of those Natori bras. They’re my favorite and especially when you can snag them on sale! I’m off to shop some more. Thanks for some great ideas!
In the process of shopping now. I live about 2 hours from the closest brick and mortar store to free shipping/free returns are my lifeline. Just FYI, the website is struggling a bit this morning during the checkout process. Clearly I’m not the only one making purchases. Thanks, as always, for all your tips and suggestions!
Erika Slaughter says
Wahoo!!!! It’s like Christmas over on STMT!! You’re my favorite source for all things Anniversary Sale!!
Too many cute things! Of course their website can’t process orders right now. Doesn’t this happen every year on this day?
Keisha Dawson says
So many good picks! The Nordstrom site must be overloaded! I’m trying to add stuff to my cart as fast as I can and nothing is adding. Customer Service number is busy, so I’m guessing I’m not the only one. Thanks so much for all of the work you put in to bringing us these awesome deals!
Katie A says
I’m getting all the Zella! Those wedge sneakers too! Love this sale! I have so many fond memories shopping with my mom and sister growing up! Waiting outside, rushing in and hoping for the best ?! So glad I can shop in my jammies now ?! On the score report my instagram is private, so I can tag you but I don’t think you’ll see it. Is there another way to participate? I can change it due to an ex…
Hi, Katie! Let me see if I can think of a work around. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
dang…the site crashed (again)
Hey Sheaffer! What size Caslon t-shirt do you buy? Love shopping with you!! XOXO
Hi, Johannah! I have a small and it’s oversized. xoxo, Sheaffer
Well it looks like it may be a repeat of last year. The site will not let me add any more items to my cart or check out. Hopefully it is back up and running again soon!
I know!!!!! So sad, Jenny! Hoping it gets fixed asap!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer
Jackie T. says
Dang, website keeps crashing and some of the items I’ve added to cart aren’t showing up. Waaaaaa! I have to go to work soon and it’s my birthday, I wanna shop!!
BTW, I’m a size 6 usually but my upper arms are not, i need a little extra room. Should I still size down in the Barefoot and the Leith cardigans?
Hey, Jackie! I sized down twice in the Leith cardigan to an XXS. The arms are fitted, but they aren’t tight and they do have some give. The barefoot dreams cardigans have less give in the arms. Hope that helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Jackie T. says
Awesome, thanks! Enjoy the frenzy today…and maybe a couple of glasses of wine tonite! lol
Can you show the basic sweater without the scarf? I just wanted to see how roomy it was on you because on the model it definitely looks relaxed/roomy.
It’s on tomorrow’s post! And yes,it’s roomy!!!! But not too baggy! I love it. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Kristine Wilkins says
Yay!! Have been waiting for this day.
Just a FYI I have been trying to order since 6 am and the site has been down for almost 2 hours now. I am stalking some Blardigans and Kut from the Kloth jeans.
Thought I would give you a heads up.
Hi, Kristine! I’ve been told they are aware and they are working on it. Fingers crossed it happens asap! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Mallory Fitzsimmons says
yessss mama! Post came out amazing! So much fun shopping with you yesterday!
Some amazing deals right here!
Just curious, how long does it take you to put together a post like this and your general posts? Thank you for doing the groundwork for us. x
Hi, Bernadine! That varies greatly from post to post! Today’s post took MUCH LONGER than a regular post. Thank you for appreciating the work that goes behind them!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Shaeffer, you are awesome! This is the best post I’ve seen this morning of Nordstrom finds…thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
I’m desperately trying to place my order…have been for over 30 minutes now. Nordstrom, don’t fail those of us who faithfully shop like you did last year…
Aw, thanks Colleen! That means a lot!!! I’m going on 1 1/2 hours sleep last night, so I’m so happy to hear the post was helpful to you! xoxo, Sheaffer 😉
Shaeffer – I hope that maybe you’re napping by now… 🙂
I don’t live near a brick and mortar store and I can’t tell you how many items are in my closet only because of you. With amazing bloggers like you, Nordstrom doesn’t need Personal Shoppers! I think I speak for many of us when I say that you are the perfect helper, guide, friend to shop with. 🙂
Colleen! YOU ARE TOO SWEET! Yes, I napped from 2:30-4:30, and now I’m working on tomorrow’s post! Seriously, thank you so much for the kind words. I appreciate them so much!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
You’re always the first place I check for Nordstrom sale finds! Are you wearing a petite or regular in the Kut step hem jeans?
Hi, Kat! I’m wearing a regular, but I think I might order a petite to see how those fit! I wouldn’t mind them being a bit shorter! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Great picks! Thanks for your help! I’m always overwhelmed!
Rachel K says
Yep just bought a ton of your recommendations. Moto jacket, cocoon cardigan, basic tee, wit & wisdom jeans and baby blardigan. I also bought 2 pairs of kut from kloth jeans, and a tunic and purse recommended on another blog. Yep that escalated quickly. Next year I’m saving 1k just for this sale because I’m already at $500 and there is still more I would buy like booties, Zella leggings, bras/undies and necklaces. Thanks for the post. Hope I love the items when they come.
Just ordered my 3rd Natori bra. They’re My favorite especially if you have a large chest. I also ordered my first baby blardigan. I bought a regular one almost 3 years ago right before my daughter was born and I’ve worn it just about every day. So excited to have a new one.
Kristin @ The Gold Project says
So, I had my order ready to go, but decided to check your post one more time. And, somehow, the Adidas flashback sneakers jumped into my cart. LOL!!! They look adorable on your feet, so I had to get a pair.
And, of course, I got the Zella leggings (always purchase), 2 more Natori bras (best bras ever), and the Wit & Widsom jeans.
Thank you for all of your dedication and information on this sale.
How much fun is this!!!! All of these finds are adorable! Nice work mama! I am off to shop!!
Laurie S says
Wow, what a list of items to check out! Watch out with the blardigans – Carter already has one, soon his furry brothers will want their own! LOL.
I noticed that you and Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) photoed and detailed a lot of the same items… great minds/shoppers think alike?!
Katie H says
Girl, when it comes to the anniversary sale you ROCK! By far the easiest blogger to follow and I truly trust what you qualify as a must buy item! Bra, undies, baby blardigan, sneakers and motto jacket are all on their way to me thanks to YOU!
Oh my goodness, Katie. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind comment! Totally made my day! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Thanks so much for putting this together! Love your picks! I wonder about the moto jacket in mushroom … did you see the color? I have placed 6 different orders and had to make a new folder in my email to put/hide all the emails in 🙁
HI, Susy! I haven’t seen it in person. So sorry I’m not more help! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I did it!! I got a Nordstrom card to have early access to all of the NAS fun and festivies. Why, you ask? Sheaffer Told Me Too!!
Love your picks. Love your blog.
Going to have a girls shop til you drop day at Nordstrom with my daughter this Saturday.
Oh man… I had a hard time getting on the site all day, and finally ordered and then I went through your post and ordered some MORE! I love those darn blardigans! 🙂 Hopefully the stuff comes fast so I can post to your IG… I think I did last year. Thank the Lord for triple points day! Keep on stylin’ girl!!
Hi, DeAnn! I’ve heard that we are actually going to get 10x points today as a peace offering from Nordstrom for all of the site issues!!!!! YIPEE!!!!!
xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
It surprises me you didn’t mention one of the best things on the anniversary sale every year. It is exclusive to Nordstrom so I have only ever seen it during the sale. Do you know about the longchamp nylon expandable tote?https://m.shop.nordstrom.com/s/longchamp-le-pliage-expandable-tote-nordstrom-exclusive-nordstrom-exclusive/3503282?origin=category-personalizedsort&breadcrumb=Home%2FBrands%2FLongchamp&color=black
These are the best bags for summer and for travel. You can leave with it zipped up and return home with it expanded.
Thanks for the tips,
I need to check it out! Thanks for the tip, Kristen!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Jackie T. says
If anyone is still trying to get orders in now before the 10x points ends at 11:59 PT/1:59 AM CT…and having trouble on their laptop or desktop then try the phone app. I just spent 10 minutes trying to get a Lancome promo code to take and couldn’t get it to work, so tried my app and it went right through.
Thank you for your hard work. I had placed a huge order through most all your links but after the horrible experience i’ve had with Nordstrom saying my Blardigan was delivered when, in fact, it was not, and not giving me the information to follow-up with the delivery company, I can only assume Nordstrom never shipped it, and of course, it is sold out now. So after the hours spent shopping and trying to place orders, I’ve cancelled my orders. This is the worst customer service I’ve ever encountered. What a waste of time!
Hi, Beth! I am so incredibly sorry that shopping was so difficult with so many road blocks. I too am quite frustrated with all of it. 🙁 xoxo
