5 Things You Should Be Buying at Nordstrom

Our favorite sale of the year, the Anniversary sale at Nordstrom begins at July 18th at a store near you! Here are things we things we choose to buy at Nordies, and why you should be buying them too!

No. 1: Shoes

Everyday and athletic shoes need to be super comfy if they’re going to get a long life of wear. I cannot tell you how many pairs of running shoes I own that don’t quite fit right and just sit in my closet. Nordstrom is wonderful at returning shoes you have even tested outside if you are unhappy with their fit. We also love their selection of extended small and large sizes and always free shipping. Wonderful customer service! Looking forward to these beauts for post-baby workouts…

No. 2: Make-up + Cosmetics

This is one of those things you get all excited about in the store when a professional is applying product perfectly and then you take home and wondered why you bought it?! It is very hard to get a true representation of color look and whether you’re going to love a product in store. Nordstrom is wonderful at encouraging you to purchase, play with a product at home and return if you don’t like it. Nordstrom is the only department store we will buy make up from!

We love these Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks for the perfect summer glow $44

No. 3: Children’s Items

One of our best strategies for a successful wardrobe on a tight budget is buying a season ahead so we can buy on clearance. This is difficult when it comes to children as little ones have random growth spurts. Huge size fluctuation in kid clothes between stores and brands also makes this close to impossible! Lucky for us, Nordstrom has a unlimited return period, meaning you can return anything, whenever. Even though Nordstrom tracks all of your purchases on their computer system we find it best to keep each receipts for easy and no-hassle returns.

Our fave Aden + Anais select 3-pack Swaddle Blankets $45 $29 During Anniversary Sale

No. 4: Brassieres

Without a doubt one of our favorite departments at Nordstrom is Lingerie for bras. Finding the perfect bra is hard work and expensive, and Nordstrom has this process down to a tee with their educated and helpful staff. We are measured EVERY time we need a new bra, and 99% of the time end up with a bra we are happy with for a long time. If you notice it doesn’t work within a few wears, exchange or returns are no problem. Don’t we all have a few bras in the closet we spent a lot of money on, but are so uncomfortable and can’t return?! We HATE that, and no longer have that problem now we shop for bras exclusively at Nordstrom. The Anniversary sale is the perfect time to stock up. THIS bra is one of my faves and will only be $39.90 during the sale.

No. 5: Sale Items

The Nordstrom App and website have come a long way in the past little while. It is so easy to shop through thousands of items with sorting filters such as ‘percent off’, specific sizing and choosing displays such as ‘pricing low to high’ etc. We have found shopping online to have a much wider selection of sale items than in store. You know we are on the app looking at baby girl sale items at least weekly! With free shipping and easy returns, it is a win-win!

THIS Zella Harmony hoodie looks super comfy. On sale for $45.56.

    Thanks for the heads up about this sale! We just bought a bra at Nordstrom for my daughter who has had a hard time finding a properly fitting bra. Her new Walcoal bra has been life changing! Looks like we’ll be back soon to buy another at a really great price!
