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!

Picking out Pumpkins & Produce in Northern Virginia

Cozy Fall Style - Sweater Vest - Picking out Pumpkins & Produce in Northern Virginia - SCsScoop.com

Fall is in the air in Northern Virginia! The foliage is just starting to get really good and I want to be outside all the time. Last weekend, we ventured down the road to an awesome local produce and garden center. What we thought was going to be an afternoon of picking out pumpkins and some produce turned out to be a pumpkin overload at one of the most charming local produce and garden centers I have ever visited! Here are the highlights.

Shop my Cozy Fall Style

This is a pretty cozy and classic fall look for me because it involves all the layers! When I shared this sweater in my random Q&A post, I said I’ve been wearing it on repeat, and now you know I wasn’t lying. It is seriously soft. Hopefully this cozy look gives you another idea for how to style sweater vests this fall. I also love layering a silk cami under my sweaters in cooler months. This more affordable ruffled hem cami will look super cute under a more fitted sweater. You can pick a neutral one for a touch of femininity or pick a different color for a fun pop of color or contrast.

Picking out Pumpkins

Nalls Produce in Alexandria, VA began in the 1960s, with produce sold off a roadside wagon. Today, it has an old-school charm with amazing quality produce. Their produce and goodies like apple butter, flavored popcorn, jam come from local farmers or from the Nalls grounds. You can subscribe for milk from local farmers, Thanksgiving produce baskets, Thanksgiving turkeys and other seasonal services.

There are tons of seasonal flowers and trees as well. My thumb is not truly green, but I was impressed with the variety of plants, and the sizes and colors. The pumpkin selection did not disappoint either. There were fairytale pumpkins, casperita pumpkins, pie pumpkins, Lil’ Pumpkemon pumpkins, Pink Porcelain Doll pumpkins, Jack-Be-Little pumpkins, Big Mac pumpkins – and the list goes on!

Almost as entertaining as the pumpkins were the chickens. Did you spy them in the pics!? There were pigs as well. Nalls also has a “pumpkin hill” which is like a giant manmade hill. For kids, it would be considered a fort, complete with tunnels and spooky underpasses. We came home with lots of pumpkins, apples, some mums and Nalls’ apple butter – soo deliciousIf you are in Northern Virginia or ever visit, I highly recommend visiting this local, family run spot. I know I’ll be back soon.

Have you visited any fun local spots this fall? When it comes to picking out pumpkins, where do you go? I would love to hear what the fall season looks like for you and what your Halloween plans are.

Cheers!
