#NSale: What Is It, What to Buy & Why?

Honestly, I think it’s a little ridiculous that we’re already shopping for fall since we’re really just in the heat of the summer (literally) but I also totally get it. It’s time to start switching gears just in time for back to school and we all like to be prepared, right?! Well Nordstrom is here to the rescue!

What is the #NSale?

Nordstrom is the only retailer that does a pre fall sale. What that means is new fall items are discounted right now, at the beginning of the season, but only for a limited time. What better way to kick off the beginning of the season than with a great sale on things you actually want and will wear all fall and winter?! It even includes brands like Tory Burch, Rebecca Minkoff, Frye and lots of others that never go on sale! So you can literally shop an entire new fall wardrobe on sale before fall! It’s crazy!

So before we all go a little crazy and buy up everything I’m breaking down a few must haves in a few different categories for those of you who may need to stock up on different pieces!


Investment Pieces:

If you’re in the market for the perfect pair of nice riding boots or an everyday nice handbag, you should absolutely buy those now! These Tory Burch riding boots are a crazy good deal (almost 50% off…whaaat?!) and this is the only time you can buy them at this price! You can also snag a great everyday tote, satchel or hobo bag from your favorite designers at a price you definitely won’t see again. I love this Tory Burch Hobo for a classic everyday bag, but this light blue Rebecca Minkoff Satchel is calling my name!

Everyday Pieces:

I typically don’t make unintentional splurges during these sales (even though I’d gladly take one of everything mentioned above!) but I will absolutely stock up on some great essentials. Flannel button downs for less than $30, workout pants for $25, booties for under $100 and maybe even a new pair of some kewl sneaks are a little more my jam during these sales.

While I didn’t get these boots from the Nordstrom sale last year, I did find a few VERY similar pairs and for less so I would suggest definitely grabbing a pair! I wore these all winter long and almost can’t wait to unpack them for fall again! Shop my similar favorites here: Sarto by Franco Sarto from $268 to $159 | Steve Madden $169 to $112 | Vince Camuto $239 to $159


If you’re a beauty junkie brands like MAC, NARS and Bobbi Brown are discounted and y’all know that never happens!! They have so many great beauty exclusives that you can only find at the #NSale which are all a steal of a deal. I love all my NARS products and I’m kind of eyeing this cheek palette, seriously so pretty! And if you’ve been wanting a Clarisonic, now’s the time to splurge on one!

Like I said before the sale is for a limited time only! Nordstrom Cardholders got early access that started last week and it’s officially open to the public TODAY! I’ve created a page on the site (you can also see the link at the very top of the page) with all my current favs that I’ll be adding to and updating this week so definitely keep checking back! Items also sell out, so make sure you get to shopping today and if your size is available, snag it! We all know what shopping FOMO does to a person, right?!
