Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Open to the Public!
Have you been waiting patiently for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to open to the public? Yay, now everyone can shop! Double yay that re-stocks will happen for the start of the public sale! If you haven’t been able to shop, you haven’t missed much because it feels like ALL of our picks and new items we want have been sold out. But, Nordstrom always starts the sale to the public with a fresh batch of inventory so fingers crossed. There are lots of great deals and some really cute items in the sale, so it is definitely worth taking a peek! The sale is huge and can be overwhelming so check out our top recommendations to make your shopping easier! Remember, prices go up on August 4. This is the best sale of the year and includes brand names and brand new women’s, men’s, and children’s fashion, shoes, accessories/handbags, beauty, and home.
Nordstrom Sale Shopping Tips
As we write this post, many items are sold out or sizes are limited. Nordstrom typically restocks when the sale opens to the public, but if your size is not available, here is a “Barely B” tip for you.
ORDER WHATEVER SIZE IS IN STOCK AND YOU CAN ALWAYS EXCHANGE SIZES LATER. Even if the sale is over before the correct size is back in stock, Nordstrom will price adjust when you buy the size you need.
If you don’t want to do that, check the site often, because they do consistently re-stock. For more Barley B Nordstrom picks, check-out our other Nordstrom Anniversary sale post here.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great time to stock up on everyday jewelry and accessories! Our picture doesn’t do the ear crawler earrings justice. They were so good that we both bought a pair, put them on immediately, and have worn them everyday for the last week. They are a perfect, dainty, everyday earring.
The necklaces have seen a lot of wear already, too. They are nice because you can wear them on their own or as a base for layering necklaces. Both of them have adjustable clasps so you can wear as a choker or a bit longer.
The belts are a great price and we can’t wait to style them in outfits throughout the year! Snakeskin is everywhere this season and the belt is a nice way to mix it in without going over the top. Jeans, a black shirt, and the belt – outfit complete. We thought the black and brown belt buckles had a Gucci vibe without trying to look like a knock-off. Again, they will add that extra piece to take a basic outfit from boring to stylish. Or stylish for 40-something moms.😂
Everyday Mom Style
Our favorite kind of style is easy & relaxed, because the reality is we are on our feet all the time while we are “adulting”. We still like to feel young and cool, but our clothes need to be comfortable and functional. Here are some of our picks.
The brown sweater lays nicely and is long enough to wear with leggings, but also looks cute with jeans. The white and blue t-shirt is a perfect everyday shirt to wear with jeans and sneakers. Both fit TTS, we are wearing XS.
I also ordered these and will let you know how they are! I’m especially excited about the field jacket, it’s lined with a cozy fleece. The print and color of the leopard was cool and I liked the little side knot. I had last year’s version of the waffleknit cowl neck sweater and wore it all the time. I have a feeling this year’s version will be even better.
The Winning color is…Cream
We realized the majority of the clothes had a few things in common…they are all cozy, cream sweaters. These are all great options for this fall and winter.
The Alo sweatshirt is a mix between a sweater and a sweatshirt. It runs a bit large, but it’s supposed to have an oversized fit so I would say TTS. I’m wearing a XS and I can see myself grabbing this all the time. The cable-knit sweater runs TTS, I’m in a XS, and it wasn’t itchy at all. It’s a cute, updated cut for a classic sweater. I loved the turtlneck sweater. It didn’t photograph well, but it is the perfect oversized sweater. Bonus points for the soft and warm factor.😁
When it comes to workwear, I am always looking for versatility. It helps when you can add pieces like this blazer and little black dress that can be mixed and matches to go from work to play, or is some cases work to an early evening business casual event. This combo has it all covered!
These shoes are all winners. The Steve Madden loafers are very comfortable and the pointy toes and little studs give them an edge. I can’t keep both and I’m having a hard time deciding what color to keep. I think the mustard color will give a nice unexpected color pop to fall outifts, but the snakeskin are so on-trend right now and will go with everything. Leave me a comment and let me know your vote!
The Vince Camuto booties and snakeskin heel both fit great and were comfortable. These shoes and the loafers fit TTS.
I ordered the shoes below, too. The hidden wedge is brilliant in the Caslon sneaker. I’m excited to try the Cole Haan sneakers, too. Years ago I owned a pair of Cole Haan sandals and they were the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever owned. All of their shoes have this pillow top cushion in them which is why you notice how cushy and comfortable they are as soon as you put them on. I’m digging the snakeskin accent. The snakeskin booties look like a fun way to jazz up jeans and a t-shirt!
