Another year, another Nordstrom anniversary Sale around the corner (early access starts on Thursday the 13th). There is no shortage of bloggers talking about it, that’s for sure! I want to know though, do you guys things this sale is over-hyped??
It’s a good sale, don’t get me wrong. Moving on….
I‘ve told myself that I don’t need anything, which is true for the most part. However, there are items that I wear a lot, over and over again, and a few things that are necessities (like a new t-shirt bra). Or a good pair of jeans (I’d rather have ONE amazing pair of jeans than five so-so pairs. And I have a lot of so-so pairs and constantly reach for my few favorites).
Just flipping through the catalog alone I fell in love with multiple pieces, and that’s not even the best of it. YIKES! BUT, same as last year I’m going to focus on the things that I kinda need, like workout gear (I signed up for a full month of Pure Barre, not sure how I’m still alive, and cute workout clothes are a pretty nice motivator. Or in my case a necessity. Didn’t realize the shortage of workout tops especially). And then there are pieces I LOVE and KNOW I’ll wear over and over and over and over again (you know, like gray tees. Which by now I have plenty of).
It is easy to get carried away and get too much crap since everyone is posting about it non-stop…and most stuff is cute. But cute doesn’t mean we need it (speaking from experience and too many cute things that I don’t necessarily love are being neglected in my closet).
SO, here is what I do: Make a list of the things I need, especially for Fall and Winter. A lot of things sell out quickly, if you love something get it (take advantage of the free shipping + free returns).
Below is my list of the things I kinda need lol (that added up quickly).
- Workout gear – tops and bottoms. Maybe one pair of new sneakers.
- Black riding boots
- T-shirt Bra (any recommendations?)
- A pair of nice winter gloves
- A cozy cardigan
- Maybe one pair of fave designer jeans (I love Mother, AG, Citizens of Humanity).
- Favorite beauty products(back-ups)
I’m sure some things for home will be too good to pass up. Shall see how this ends up.
I was trying to remember what my most worn pieces are from last year but looking at my posted outfits doesn’t help much as most of my outfits never make it to the blog.
I know the suede moto jacket below sold out in no time (got restored eventually in ton of colors but not for the sale price). I wore that quite a bit but it wasn’t my most worn pieces.
What are YOU planning on buying during the Nordy’s sale??
