Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Newbie: Early Access + Giveaway!

Happy Friyay!

I am jumping on the "Yay!  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale" bandwagon. I wasn't planning on it but I thought, oh why not! I shopped round 1 of the sale last night and stuck to my budget pretty well. Although with that being said, I still have a few items sitting in my cart until public access starts next Friday, or until I win one of the many gift card  giveaways that are out there right now including this one over on  The Cocooners! My thought is that if it is still there by the time it opens to the public, then it was meant to be and I have to have it! 

I wanted to give a quick look at some of the great finds that you can get so far! Remember that some of these items may sell out before public access starts but I will keep this post updated if that does happen to any of my items. If you are waiting until public access, I definitely suggest scouting out your picks now and adding them to your wish list online. It will be much quicker to already have them waiting for you when you get access to buy them!

Let's get down to business, shall we? 

1) Tory Burch Adeline Boot  – I am obsessed with this color! This is Almond but they also come in black, but I think Almond is such a great fall shade. Now just because this is a sale doesn't mean you are going to find these boots for $100 but these are marked down to $299 and will be $498 after the sale. That is an amazing price considering the quality and longevity of wear that you will get from these! 

2) Tory Burch Frida Swingback Leather Crossbody – SOLD OUT - I was a little Tory Burch obsessed this year, haha no shame! She has several cute bags this season and this Light Oak color is my favorite. Get ready to see a lot of it this fall from all your favorite influencers and friends! This bag is currently $283.90 and will be $428 after the sale. Another one of my favorites is this larger  Frida Leather Satchel also in Light Oak for $329.90 now and $498 after the sale.

3) Halogen Oliver Ankle Wrap FlatsSOLD OUT - You cannot even imagine how excited I am for these to come in the mail! I have already planned so many outfits with these adorable ballet flats. As a huge plus, they are extremely comfy and come in 4 solid colors as well! Get them for $59.90 now and $89.95 after the sale.

4) CLARISONIC Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing SystemSOLD OUT but other colors still available for now! I was happy to see that so many great beauty products were included in the sale this year. Clarisonic, to me, is one of the best skin care brands out there! And this little gadget is great at clearing off a long hard day of work from your face! If you were thinking about trying one of these EVER, now is the time! I picked the lavender one but it comes in 4 other shades. Get it for 86 now or 113 after! (Getting it now is the better choice….) The Mia 2 which comes with a trial size of Refreshing Gel Cleanser is also on sale for $113 right now.

5) Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black – This is Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s brand, who I’ve loved for like ever seeing how they are near my age and I oddly looked like I could have been a missing triplet! This is my favorite scent from them, which began when I received it in an Ipsy Glambag one month. It is the perfect combination of scents (vanilla, violet, & sandalwood) without being too overwhelmingly “girly”. If this isn’t your favorite, they have all the other Nirvana scents on sale as well! This 3 piece set is $110 during the sale.

6) BP. Faren Bootie – These BP. booties are going to be a great staple for transitioning into fall. With the cute perforation detail and plunging side plus a great price of only $69.90, I was all over these but it was not an easy decision because there were so many great booties to choose from like these Toms Deia Block Heel Booties for only $64.90. The booties on sale are going to pretty fast so be sure to snag them quick!

7) Socialite Off the Shoulder Sweatshirt DressSOLD OUT - This dress was the first item in my cart online! I saw the actual sweatshirt (only $25.90) and thought “I wish they had a dress like this” then magically, it appeared! The best part you ask? POCKETS! Give me a dress with pockets and my day is made. I will be wearing this dress on repeat come fall because it is so versatile! And who could pass it up for only $31.90?!

8) Kendra Scott Rae Long Filigree Pendant necklace – Kendra Scott is my all-time favorite jewelry. I have too much of it, but how could I resist such good deals on these pieces? Rose gold is my go to since it looks great with any clothing color but silver and yellow gold are also on sale. Right now, you can get the necklace for only $49.90, but $75 after sale!

9) Kendra Scott Elle Filigree Drop earrings – These earrings are $39.90 and they have the smaller Lee Filigree Drop earrings for just $35.90. I went with the bigger pair since it was only a few dollars more, but the dainty, small pair almost drew me in!

There we have it folks! These were the items that grabbed my eye right from the start. Next week, I will be sharing my must haves for the fall season right in time for public access to start on Friday, July 21st. Until then, don't forget to head over to The Cocooners and enter her gift card giveaway before it closes on July 19th!
