Hottest Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hottest Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - SCsScoop.com

It’s almost here – my favorite sale of the year. I have been looking through all the pieces included in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale and there some items in particular I am confident will go fast! If you any of these hot items are on your list to grab, I recommend pulling the trigger are going to pull the trigger on.

Using my past sale shopping experience and a lot of research, I identified seven categories that are the hottest categories for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. There are definitely things that will sell out outside of these categories, but I focused on the hottest of the hot for y’all! For each category I went through all the sale items and identified 5-8 HOT items that are most likely to sell out completely.

Note: If you don’t have early access for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I will update this list next week for public access!

Now, here is the visual round up of the sale’s hottest items by category.

Boots & Booties

Cardigans

Sweaters

Fleeces

Flats, Sneakers and Slide-Ons

HOT Tops

Jackets

Denim

So there’s my round-up. There are a few hot brands worth pointing out as well. Barefoot dreams cardigans always sell out fast and there are several styles on sale this year. I shared my personal favorite cardigan above, but there are similar ones that will go fast too. Steve Madden shoes and boots always go quickly too, and the snakeskin flats I shared above come in several other colors/prints. Madewell also has a great selection of pieces on sale this year. I predict their cardigans and jeans will sell out the fastest. Topshop sweaters also tend to go quickly, and last year’s version of this sweater sold out fast last year.

I know it is a lot, but it is really just the tip of the ice berg. There will be lots more things, like fall essentials and basics like faux leather Spanx leggings that never go on sale and will definitely go fast.

I’ll share more favorites on the LiketoKnow.it app so follow me there if you want to see more. The app is free and you can also save items in there and make a wishlist to help keep track of what you want to grab.

I would love to hear what you’ll be getting this year, if you are shopping the sale. And, stay tuned for more from me on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Cheers and happy shopping!

Shopping Tips & Top Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Shopping Tips & Top Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - SCsScoop.com

It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale aka the NSale is about to begin and I always get super excited because it is the best sale of the year for new clothes. If you’re wondering what it is or don’t understand why it’s something to be excited about, I’ll explain! Every July, Nordstrom releases *new* Fall and Winter merchandise at super discounted prices. This is the perfect time to stock up on basics and classic sweaters, jeans, boots, bags and tops that you can not only wear this fall and winter but for years to come! Now, here are some shopping tips and my top picks for the Nordstrom sale!

The Timing

This year there are more phases for shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In addition to the typical Early Access and Public Access there are now in-store shopping days for icons and ambassadors before Early Access begins. Early Access is available to all Nordstrom debit or credit card holders. Nordstrom also offers a $60 bonus note if you sign up. There is still time to open a debit or credit card.

  • July 12th, 12:30 PM EST: Early Access begins in stores and online!
  • July 19th: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public
  • August 4th: The sale ends.

Shopping Tips

  • Before the sale starts, go through your closet and think about what basics and/or fall and winter pieces you need (or just really want, ha!). You can check out my Ultimate Fall Fashion Checklist for an easy start!
  • Try to shop the sale as quickly as possible because items sell out quickly! There is a maximum quantity of anniversary sale items sold. So, if you want to make the most of this sale and get the year’s hottest items, then I recommend acting fast and getting Early Access.
  • The best way to shop the sale is online. Shipping is free, and there will be a much larger selection of sale items and sizes online. Considering the new phase of in-store shopping for icons and ambassador, I highly recommend shopping online.
  • If you an item you want sells out during early access, definitely check back on July 19th when the sale opens to the public. Many items will be restocked to some degree then.
  • Booties and cardigans are the most popular pieces for this sale year after year, so if you have your eye on any particular ones that I share, bookmark the links!

Ok y’all here’s my little secret – there are SO many great things on sale this year that are not in the catalogue. I am super excited to share more with you all, but I tried to focus on the pieces I am most excited about and share the best of the best for this initial peek. Here they are!

Why You Should Go For it: Four Benefits of a Side Hustle

Why You Should Go For it: Four Benefits of Side Hustles - Summer Work Style Inspiration SCsScoop.com
Follow me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app to shop these summer work style essentials.

I am not sure how the time went SO quickly, but my little corner of the good ‘ole worldwide web turns THREE at the end of this month. I plan to share more reflections on that along with some updates and changes I will be making to the blog. But today, I want to reflect on the benefits of having a side hustle. This post is for those of you who have been thinking about starting a new side hustle or thinking about taking a risk and doing something different for your life.

But first, let’s be honest. It’s really easy to focus on the reasons not to do something new. And from my experience, we often gravitate towards the potential negatives of a new venture when we aren’t ready for the change or don’t feel like we deserve it. For me, my negative thoughts sounded like, “what if I’m not good at it?”, “My life is too all over the place to focus on a side hustle right now,” and “I should start it later, when X is done.”

“It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you.”

Leon Brown

Shifting Your Mindset for a Side Hustle

Three years ago, I was still unsure about creating a blog as a side hustle. For several years, I thought about blogging. I felt passionate about the idea, but I the negative thoughts and my reasons not to do it just yet had the front seat. Then, something changed. I accepted there would never be a “perfect” time. I let go of the negative thoughts. I realized that I deserved to give this blogging thing a try. I knew that if I didn’t allow myself to try managing a side hustle, I would regret it and always wonder, “what if?”

So, I pulled the trigger. I took that first step into creating a blog and my own little side hustle.

Fast forward to today, and I have gotten SO much more out of this blog than I ever imagined! Leading up to the birth of this blog, my job situation rocky and… frustrating to say the least. The organization I worked for had had some leadership change and the environment was quickly turning toxic. (Little did I know, I was a few months away from being fired!) I began looking for a new job right as I started this side hustle. Then, almost immediately, I started realizing these benefits:

THE BENEFITS OF A SIDE HUSTLE

#1 – Ownership & Control

Such a large percentage of work frustrations and complaints boil down to the things we cannot control. When you have a side hustle that whole dynamic changes. Yes, it is all up to you, and that can be scary at times, but you are in the driver seat – no one else! You make your deadlines. You decide how much time you want to invest in it each week. Your side hustle is just that. It is YOURS, and that level of control and ownership can feel SO good my friends.

#2 – Creative Outlet

Having space to be creative and create the things you want, and create things how you want is such a gift. Creative outlets have also been known to improve mood, reduce stress and renew brain function. Whether your side hustle is a blog or an Etsy shop or even a side consulting business, some level of creativity is required to establish your brand. Personally, the creative outlet I have as a result of this blog is my favorite thing about my side hustle.

#3 – Work Boundaries

When you start a side hustle, one of the first things you have to determine is how much time and energy you are willing to invest in it. Since side hustles are by definition something additional to your day job, you have to figure out how/when to fit it into your schedule. The almost instant result is clear work boundaries.

Before my side hustle, I too often got caught up in work emails and calls outside of normal working hours. I worked far more than I was required to, and because of my “always say yes” and people-pleaser personality, my job often took advantage of me. Now, I have adhere to a more strict set of work hours in order to create time in my schedule for my side hustle.

SIDE NOTE: Side hustles can also change your concept of work. While I do consider the time and energy I put into this blog work, it rarely feels like it.

#4 – Personal Growth & Confidence

To truly create a side hustle, you have to find your voice and respect it. If you are in any way apart of your side hustle’s brand, then you have to really think about who you are, what parts of you or others you want to share and how you want to highlight and communicate that. As your voice grows you will learn more about yourself and grow more confident in who you are.

Perhaps this is the biggest benefit for me. Before my blog, I felt like my voice was often lost at work or that it really didn’t matter because the higher-up would have the say at the end of the day. I would shy away from speaking up. For me, when I write a new blog post and spend time on my side hustle, I feel a renewed sense of who I am. I have become and continue to become more confident, and I see a correlation to that and this blog.

Of course, my side hustle is a little different from others. I also realize that a lot of people do not consider a blog a side hustle (more on that later!). BUT, regardless of what your side hustle is or what you want it to be, I encourage you to focus on the benefits and positive aspects that can or do come from it.

If you’re feeling lost or unmotivated, recalling the benefits can help remind you of the purpose behind your side hustle and why you started it in the first place.

If you’re in the same place I was a few years ago, unsure about doing something new, think about the benefits and this quote:

“You can’t always wait for the perfect time. Sometimes, you have to dare to do it because life is too short to wonder what could’ve been.”

— Unknown

My hope is the tangible benefits I have experienced will give you the courage to GO FOR IT — to start that side hustle and invest some extra time and energy into a passion that lights you up. I would love to hear your thoughts on side hustles. Are they worth it? Do you have one? Were you unsure about starting one, like I was? Let’s connect in the comments.

Cheers!
