This is such a great sale to shop online because there’s free shipping, free returns, and exchanges. Not to mention, you don’t have to worry about the crowds and long lines! It’s that easy!

Here are my favorite pieces that I purchased at midnight. I could not pass on an amazing sale like this! I bought many neutral toned pieces that is perfect to wear right now in this SoCal heat and will easily to transition into Fall as well! I love pieces that you can wear year-round. Be sure to bookmark my blog as I will share with you my try-ons tomorrow!

Lace and Lock’s Guide to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hey guys!

I wanted to take time out of my busy schedule to share with you one of my favorite sales of the year is starting this week! If you haven’t already heard all the buzz, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for card members starts this Thursday, July 12, 2018! This will give you the chance to buy brand new arrivals on sale before they go back to full-price! Prices go up August 6, 2018. As in recent years and as you can tell from last year’s post, I LOVE this sale and always find some great items to add to my wardrobe!

I want to share some tips to you that will definitely come in handy for your first Nordstrom Anniversary Sale trip! In the comments below, let me know if this helped!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If I haven’t stressed this enough, this is my favorite time of the year to shop at Nordstrom. And I know it’s been so freaking hot lately, but if you shop now, you can save big on brand new arrivals for the Fall/Winter. Some items are exclusive for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so you won’t be able to find the same item anywhere else. I opened a Nordstrom card for the benefits and Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you’re interested in getting a card, click here to read more to see which card is right for you!

I need to know all the dates! When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 starting?

Mark this on your calendars because the Early Access Sale starts this Thursday!
Early Access for Nordstrom card members only: July 12, 2018 – July 19, 2018
Public Access: July 20, 2018 – August 5, 2018

I found the dress I really want on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog, but I don’t have time to shop in-store!

Nordstrom makes it so easy. Simply check out online and pick up your order in store. Did you know there’s curbside pick up? After checking out, use the Nordstrom iOS app to request! They will walk your purchase out to your car! That’s what I am going to do! 🙂

What if they run out of the color and/or size I want?

There were some items that I wanted to buy last year, but they didn’t have my size in the store. I’ve always had great experience with the store associates at Nordstrom. They helped me to find the size and/or color I needed by either ordering it from online or calling different Nordstrom stores. The shipping is free and return is easy!

What are your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks?

Nordstrom released the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog! There’s an online version! But, if you want a hard copy, check your mail or pick one up at a Nordstrom near you.

Here are some of my favorite styles from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I’ve already bookmarked and will definitely try to snatch up first. I love that pastels are trending for Fall and you know I can’t get enough of closed toe mules!

PINK BELL SLEEVES & BOW HEELS

It’s January but I’m already looking ahead to Spring with this bright and feminine transitional look! It’s been quite hectic with work but when I get a chance to dress up or wear heels, you will usually find me in something feminine & classic. I love how fun and easy-to-wear this bright pink bell sleeve dress is and I’m wearing my favorite new pink bow shoes I got over Christmas! You guys know me – I love me a good bow shoe!

SCALLOP BODYCON DRESS

Valentine’s may be over but that doesn’t mean you have to stop searching for gorgeous date night outfits. I love this bodycon dress because although it’s very sexy in cut and shape, I love the feminine touches in the pretty hue and the scallop detailing. Due to its bodycon nature, the dress isn’t as forgiving as others so I made sure to eat a lighter meal before wearing this sexy number! I got a “wow” from the hubs when he saw me in this so I guess he approves ;).

RED OFF THE SHOULDER SWEATER DRESS

If you have been following my blog, you know I love off the shoulder styles. I found this burgundy red off the shoulder sweater dress and I knew it would make a perfect Valentine’s date night dress. I love the fitted shape of the dress and how it hugs your body in a flattering way. This is probably the simplest look I’ve put together for Valentine’s Day compared to past years. You can find me in dressier looks with this pink tulle skirt and this black maxi tulle skirt.

Chartreuse & Camel

I’m loving camel so much this season and this Topshop camel coat has been on constant rotation and a staple for my closet. The coat I’m wearing here was purchased in a Petite size but it has sold out since. I linked another camel coat here. Camel is such a versatile, neutral color and I loved pairing it here with a fun color in this chartreuse, colorful mini skirt. I’m slowly adding more color into my wardrobe as we begin to transition out of Winter.

#PerfectNever

I don’t have resolutions. I have goals and one of my goals for 2017 is to workout more consistently. It’s not about losing weight or looking good but really about being healthy. I realize I’ll never have the perfect body but as I’m getting older, I’m seeing the long term effects of how you treat your body. I’ve cut out a lot of my bad habits (soda, coffee, processed snacks) and focus on being healthier and feeling better. I love that Reebok is promoting the journey of self improvement and they designed this gorgeous collection to keep you motivated and stylish!

LAYERING WITH UNIQLO HEATTECH

I’ve been living in layers now that I am traveling quite often to chillier weather in San Francisco, CA. My favorite layering options that keep me comfy and warm are HEATTECH basics from Uniqlo. These simple pieces are lightweight but also features heat retaining technology to keep you warm all day long. Today I’m actually showcasing how HEATTECH layers keep you warm underneath your sweaters and jackets, but they are also the perfect basic layers for a stylish look. I combined two of my favorite Uniqlo items with this gorgeous faux fur vest and chic accessories to stay on trend and warm to the core!
