The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing. If you’ve got early access, you can start shopping now. The sale opens to the public on July 21. Items are already beginning to sell out, but don’t be alarmed, things go in and out of stock throughout the sale as people receive orders and return pieces that don’t work out.

Personally, I’ll be shopping the sale online–the availability of petite sizing is much more abundant online. I linked some of my personal favorites below.  You can also shop some of the most popular categories by clicking the following links:

Outerwear & Jackets
Petite Clothing
Mules & Slides

This sale is the perfect time to purchase early Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, or–of course–to invest in your own wardrobe. For most, me included, this is arguably the best sale of the whole year, so happy shopping!






The ones in my own cart:

I personally use this sale as an opportunity to save on some classic investment pieces: sleek outerwear, a staple turtleneck, well-fitting jeans, and my beauty staples. Items like this–because they ARE staples–don’t often go on sale, so I love that I can grab a few of them at a lower price point before the season even starts.

Full disclosure: items sell out FAST, but as people receive their orders and send back returns, many items are restocked throughout the sale. If you see something you really love, don’t be afraid to bookmark it and check back later. Odds are good that it’ll turn up!
