The “Big Day” is just around the corner! Next week we’ll be working our booties off bringing you all the best of this amazing, but sort of overwhelming sale. Like last year, the catalog is a preview of what’s to come. You can expect much more than you see, especially in the way of basics! The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be a great time for you to stock up on sweaters, denim, shoes, and a few trend pieces that you love. If shopped correctly, you can really build yourself a nice wardrobe with mix and match pieces that will carry you through winter.
2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shopping Timeline
I’m not a huge advocate for store credit cards, but the Nordstrom card is a must have. Not only does it earn you excellent rewards and faster points, but it is the key to getting what you want during the Anniversary Sale. Many items will be sold out before public access, and those without cards will be scouring the site for restocks and returns. Frankly, if this sale rivals last year’s, you’ll want to shop as soon as you possibly can. For most cardholders, that will be on July 12, 2019.
2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Buy Those Better Basics
From browsing the catalog, we’re seeing a lot of bright colors, plaid prints, animal prints, and earth tone textures. Flare jeans are still making their comeback. I am SO happy to see a pair of Madewell jeans in the lineup, since that is my go-to brand for jeans. You might remember the Top Shop Flares from last years sale- they were a huge hit- but they didn’t work for many body types.
While it’s a good time to buy a few high quality trends item at great prices., for me this sale is all about buying those better basics. My favorite item from last year’s sale is a leather jacket (similar here) that I wear constantly. It is buttery soft, and my go-to for layered style. Last year I snagged this t-shirt and haven’t stopped buying more. They’re lightweight and so comfortable. These KUT jeans were a great buy- one of our best sellers!
Another favorite item was the Leith body con dress and the Madewell Central shirt in an exclusive to Nordstrom pattern. You can expect to see some version of that Leith dress this year. I’m hoping for a new pattern in the Madewell shirt since I wear it so often.
Sweaters and shoes are always big hits and quick to sell out. You’ll see that favorite styles from last year got little bit of an update for the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, plus there are plenty of new styles as well. Tall boots are coming back full force, and your favorite booties will be available as well. Several UGG styles will be in the sale, as will a cozy Barefoot Dreams cardigan!
2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – What’s on my List
As I’ve already mentioned, the catalog is just a tiny preview of what’s to come. Last year we were baby bloggers, and we had a big plan based on the catalog. Many of our favorite items weren’t in the catalog at all- so you’ll have to stay tuned for the items that end up being our actual favorites.
Just for fun: See our pre sale picks from last year.
However, based on catalog alone, this is what I’ll be making a beeline for as we shop the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:
