Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Best Picks 2017

This week is seriously Christmas in July!  Not only did we have Amazon Prime Day on Tuesday, but right now, in the wee hours of the morning, starts the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access.  What is and how do you get Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access?  It’s when all Nordstrom card holders (credit and debit) get a few days of first dibs on all the sale merchandise before the sale opens to the general public.  So, first things first…do you have a Nordstrom card?  If you don’t, you can sign up RIGHT NOW and get approval and a code to start shopping immediately…even before your card arrives…as in right now!  So much of the sale merchandise sells out before the sale even opens to the general public, it is really the only way to shop this sale.  So if you haven’t signed up yet…now is a great time!  SIGN UP HERE

As much as I am not excited for winter, I am excited live in a place where I will be able to finally buy a four season wardrobe and actually use it!  Sweaters, scarves, boots, cute coats…you name it.  I don’t own nearly enough fall and winter gear, so this is going to be an extra great sale!  I love the frenzy of this sale, shopping in my PJs late at night to get the best of the best online and then waking up and running down the street to pick it up all packaged up nicely for me. 😉  The sale just started minutes ago, and I dove right in to find my faves, because I’m SURE they are going to go quickly.

I always head straight to bags and shoes.  They always fit and look cute on anyone. 😉  There are SO many cute bags every season, I usually treat myself to a couple. I know that this sale in particular can be a little bit overwhelming.  Especially with the frenzy surrounding the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the anticipation can make me a bit nervous. lol!  Now I sound like a total nut! 😉  Don’t worry, I have done all the hard work for you and now all the best stuff is here at your finger tips.  If you are looking for a great new Nordstrom bag, here’s what’s in my cart:

I’m starting with this bag!  A good cross body bag is a must in my book.  So versatile and easy to carry when you are out and about.  I have been seeing a ton of embellished, embroidered accessories for this fall, so this bag will have you totally on point.

This one is perfect for everyday, carrying everything you need on the go, and the price can’t be beat.  It’s only $35.90, ($55 after the sale) but it looks luxurious to me, so I like it even more.  I love that pretty berry color too.  Perfect for fall.

This awesome bag  is the perfect date night/weekend bag and will bring just the right amount of glam to any outfit.   Was $195, now $129.00

Everyone needs a little bit of Kate Spade in their lives, and I’m guessing that some of you could use this gorgeous blue tote in yours. Was $428, now 284.00.  It comes with a super cute patterned removeable laptop sleeve too.

Love this great this clutch?   The price is right, it goes with practically everything, and it is coming to my house next week! 😉

Here are all of what I think are the best bags from the sale:

Nordstrom shoes…on sale?!  It’s definitely Christmas in July! 😉  These boots were made for walking…and ankle boots are the comfy way to do it!!   There are tons of cute ankle boots in pretty colors.  i picked up a few pairs last year and will be doing the same this time around.  If I was about two inches shorter, I would be sporting this pair, and these super cute ones too.  The block heel is comfy and looks great.  The heels on these are too big for me too, but I LOVE them…and if you are shorter than me you must buy them! 😉  I will live vicariously through you. 😉

Flats and the rest of the shoes…a few caught my eye, these flats are cute.  love the color and the ankle strap. 🙂  Although, I did order this cute pair of casual sneaks and a new pair of my favorite workout shoes.

Here are all of my picks for shoes:

I LOVE sweaters. They make me feel like I am wearing my pajamas outside.    Soft sweaters, coats, boots, denim, leather bags..I love it all and now my desires for some real weather to wear them in are about to be realized.  A friend told me a great quote yesterday that was something along the lines of “there is no such thing as poor weather, only poor wardrobe choices.”  SO true!  I am definitely going to make sure we all have the right “equipment” this year to make winter a breeze.  I stock up on sweaters every year at this sale.

This long one is perfect for cold mornings running the kiddos to school.  it comes in 3 colors (I might get all 3) and it’s only $59 during the sale.  Awesome!

You know I love stripes, so this one will be a favorite for sure.  A little pricey, but a great deal during the sale and fun for a splurge..and So soft!!

Here are a few of my other faves:

Denim!  There is SO much good denim to choose from.  If skinnies are on you list, this is a super cute pair, and only $38 during the sale, WHAT?!  What do you think about the look of the different cut hems in front and back?  I am kind of liking it.  Here’s a cute pair.  I ordered a couple of new jeans, and I love these cute slim utility pants.  The gray is so versatile.

There are so many cute tops.  Here are a few of my favorites.  That yellow tee comes in TONS of colors and I love them.  They are soft and go with everything.  I am actually wearing a black and white stripe one right now. 😉

Ok, and these three coats.  They are show stoppers.  I have the twill peplum on order and the leather.  I have a similar black leather coat and wear it EVERYWHERE.  It is SO cute and comfy.  So the brown one will be nice to add to the wardrobe.  Can we talk about that military coat for a second.  It is EXPENSIVE…but Oh So Cool.  It would definitely be something that you would pull out of the closet season after season.  I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but I am drooling over it for sure.

Hopefully that gets your shopping off to a great start! I will be placing more orders throughout the sale…I haven’t even looked at men’s and kid’s yet…and I’m mulling over a couple of things, it’s late and my eyes are starting to go buggy.  The women’s stuff definitely goes the fastest, so get that under your belt tonight or tomorrow, and then come back and check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tab under the “shop” header at the top of the page in a bit.  I will be adding more favorites from Men, Kid’s and Home and I will update the items that sell out so everything stays current.   If you don’t already follow me on Instagram (@pink_peppermint_design), come join me there too for more real time sale news, I’ll ad updates to my stories throughout the sale.  Many of the sale items can’t be found in-store, so I recommend shopping online…in addition, many of the high-demand items can be ordered online and picked up in-store—one of the major perks of shopping at Nordstrom!   Nordstrom locations offer a special service counter just for Nordstrom online pick-ups and returns.  Don’t forget to sign up for the Nordstrom Rewards Benefits Program too, before you shop!  It’s for all customers and it’s free for everyone.  It works similarly to a credit card rewards program in that it let’s you earn rewards for every $1 you spend at Nordstrom.  Even better?  You get rewards when you shop at HauteLook and Nordstrom Rack too!  Simply sign up with your name, email and mobile number.  There are bonus points days, so be on the look out for those throughout the year too.  For each 2,000 points you earn, you’ll get a $20 Nordstrom Rewards benefits note to spend on ANYTHING.  You also get a $10 rewards certificate just by signing up….just in time to spend at the sale! Woohoo!
