How to Prep for the N Sale

EEEEEEEEkkkkk the biggest sale of the year is in TWO WEEKS! Whaaaaat?! How did that come around so fast again?

Don’t worry, I am READY! And you should be too!

I created this post to show you how to prep for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.


Prepping for the N Sale

1.Get the Nordstrom Credit Card

Last year, so many of you were frustrated because you couldn’t shop the Pre-Sale Access. The Early Access is just for clients who have a Nordstrom credit card or who are at  least at Level 4. I remember by the end of the day on the first day of Early Access half of the items were already sold out!

It is probably too late for you to get at Level 4 if you aren’t already, so your next step would be to apply for a Nordstrom Credit Card. Hurry and do it TODAY so that you can get it in time for Early Access. You will have to use the card to log in and check out.


I don’t make anything off you getting a credit card, I just don’t want you guys to be frustrated all over again when everything sells out before public access.

2.Make a List of What You Want to Shop

And give that list to me!! Haha! But really, leave comment below with your favorite purchase from last year and what you will be looking for this year! The N Sale has HUNDREDS of pages to scroll through, so it is MY JOB to show you the best of the best to cut out tons of shopping time for you guys.

Let me know what you are going to be shopping for so that I can make sure I post what you are looking for! That is what I am here for!

Luckily, I will only be 22 weeks and my bump is still pretty tiny. I will be wearing and posting the SAME KIND OF ITEMS that I posted last year. I may add some maternity and kids, but it won’t be very much. I will still be posting my favorite non-maternity tops, sweaters, jeans, shoes, activewear, etc for you guys!

Here are some of my favorite photos/items from last year’s sale:

    I would love to see some boots and booties. I always try to get a few pairs during the sale. Also, sweaters for the fall and winter. Finally, it looks like they are going to have a few jeans. Thanks! (:

    I’d love to see some nice workwear recommendations! I love finding nice pants and cute blouses on sale, since they’re often too expensive for me full-price. I’ll also be browsing the shoes for flats, low heels, and booties! <3

    I bought a ton of baby/ nursery stuff from the N sale last year. You should check out some of their baby things (and post your picks) like diaper bags, etc.
