Mega Sale Prep | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Prime Day!

Happy Monday, friends! Today we’re talking sales, and not just any sales, but the mother of all sales… the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and Amazon’s Prime Day, both kicking off tomorrow!! Crazy that they fall in the same week this year, but have no fear… I’m here to help you navigate these epic events and will be sharing just the best-of-the-best!

To help you prepare, today I’m sharing the essentials and most-requested products for each retailer, all in one easy spot!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale //

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an annual event featuring brand new (mostly) Fall products that are released at up to 40% off, but only for a short time. Once the sale is over, prices will go to their regular full price. But friends don’t let friends pay full price, so that’s where I come in!

I look forward to the #NSale all year, and use it as an opportunity to stock up on products I use year-round, update my closet staples, and even shop for Christmas gifts!

To help you navigate the thousands of products available this year (preview the full sale HERE), I’ve combed through every single category and chosen the best of the best. This week I’ll be sharing my top picks for everything from the best of dresses and shoes, to home, beauty, gifts and more!

These are my tried-and-true favorites, the things I grab every year… and all will be up to 40% off when the #NSale opens tomorrow to Icon level cardholders! (Log in to your account to see when you’ll be able to start shopping.) We can’t shop them yet, but you can add them to your Wish List for faster shopping once the Sale goes live for you.

NSale | Sugarplum Essentials //

The NSale is a great time to add new denim to my closet, and I’m thrilled to find so many Mother styles this year! It’s a pricey brand, so I jump at the chance to grab them for less! I also refresh my undies… these briefs are my go-tos for everyday (no wedgies!), and these thongs are my top choice for a seamless look under leggings.

I also love closet staples like these crewneck sweaters and basic tees, and of course new sneakers and booties. I also restock my beauty drawer, and I’m so excited to see this jumbo size of Olaplex in the sale! And I always keep a supply of these Bliss Throws on-hand, they make the perfect gift (and are a steal during the NSale!).

1. Mother Ankle Bootcut Jeans // 2. High Waist Pocket 7/8 Leggings
3. Raglan Sleeve Sweater // 4. Fave Scoopneck Pocket Tee
5. Seamless Stretch Thong // 6. French Cut Brief Undies
7. Chain Slide Mules // 8. ON Cloud Training Sneakers
9. Pointed Block Heel Booties // 10. Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
11. Bliss Throw Blanket // 12. Slip Silk Pillowcase + Scrunchie Set



I also looked back at the pieces y’all grab most, and it seems we share some favorites and gravitate to the basics and wardrobe essentials! Here are this year’s versions of what you shopped most in last year’s Anniversary Sale. (OHEMGEE the Barefoot Dreams set is truly a dream!)

Amazon Prime Day //

Amazon Prime Day is literally 10s of 1000s of popular items across all categories that will be on lightning deal starting tomorrow! Heck, it’s even bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined!

The only kicker is you must be an Amazon Prime member to gain access to the discounted prices. Not a member yet? No biggie, you can sign up HERE for a free trial membership. (Cancel anytime!) 

Thanks to Prime’s free 2-day delivery, rarely a week (okay, day!) goes by that an Amazon delivery doesn’t find its way to our doorstep. To help you prep for the fun 2-day sale, today I’ve got some of my top products, and your most requested throughout the year…

Funny enough, each and every item on your most-requested list is a Must Have for me… truly game-changers! (I’m looking at you, e-Cloths and pet fur brush!)!

I’m already filling my Wish List, and making plans for early Christmas shopping… what about you? Tomorrow will be a big day, with two separate blog posts coming your way!! Make sure you’re subscribed HERE so you don’t miss it!

One post will be all things Nordstrom, with my top picks in every Women’s category. If Amazon is what you’re shopping, I’ll have a huge post of just the best Amazon finds, as well. (Find the early Prime Day sales happening already HERE.)

Mama Sugarplum will also be joining me for some fun Dressing Room Diaries of our favorite Nordstrom picks that we’ll be sharing later this week. My goal is to be a helpful resource for you, but don’t worry… I’m sticking to just my top picks and the best deals.

Are you shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Amazon’s Prime Day, or both?! If so, what are you focused on most? Happy Monday, lovebugs!
