Get ready to shop Nordstrom for the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s almost here guys, and I am going to tell you the style staples I am looking to buy this year and what the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dates are that you should add to your calendar. This sale is basically a yearly tradition for the ladies in my family. It happens to fall around a few of our birthdays, so we make it a point to get the date of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on our calendars and make a girls day out of it. Every year my sweet grandma goes to the sale and buys up every color of her favorites and spoils my mom, sister and I, with our birthday gifts. Of course, because the much-anticipated Nordstrom Sale is no doubt going to be epic, we will make this shopping trip/family tradition happen once again and get all the best deals on shoes, accessories, fall clothing, and all the style staples I need.
(p.s- I am going back to Oregon to visit my family during the sale, so I will totally get to take part the Nordstrom Sale this year with the fam and stock up on my style staples!! We missed it last year >>>insert sad-face-emoji. Also…tax free! Score.)

STYLE STAPLE 1: SHOES AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
The absolute first place I always go when I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the shoes. Shoes are the absolute number one style staple in my book and since all of the shoes sell out fast, I b-line it and make sure I get what I want. I am looking for a pair of block heel boots for fall and a good pair of comfy sneakers for the athleisure style trend that all moms are loving. Here are some shoe ideas that I will be on the look out for during this 2016 Nordstrom sale.
adidas Stan Smith Sneakers >>> $74.95
Lucky Brand Zavrina Strappy Bootie >>> Currently on sale for $69.75 down from $138.95!
Vince Camuto Jodie Bootie >>> 98.95
Seychelles Wraparound Tie Pump
STYLE STAPLE 2: PANTS AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
Last year they had all of the good denim on sale like Rag & Bone, Hudson, Paige, and AG. In reality, I never buy these denim brands for full price, which is why I hold out for the Nordstrom sale. In fact, my first taste of high-quality jeans were from Hudson and I purchased them at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale when I was 20. That was 13 years ago and I had a much better booty….it looked real good in those Hudsons (dreaming about when). And three kids later, dang it.
Anyways, here are a few denim brands I will be looking out for at this year’s sale.
Rag & Bone Shredded Skinny Jeans
Paige Denim Transcend Verdugo Crop Skinny Jeans
STYLE STAPLE 3: JACKETS AND COATS AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
I know exactly what jacket styles I will be shopping for at the anniversary sale this year and I am crossing my fingers that they will be on the list. The bomber jacket trend is so hot right now and it’s definitely a style staple for both men and women…in fact, I just bought my husband this ASOS bomber jacket for his birthday and it was a hit. Also, drapey leathers jackets and military coats will still be rocking in our closets for fall. Keep these styles in mind as you shop the sale.
Hinge Drapey Military Jacket >>> $58.98 on sale
STYLE STAPLES 4: SWEATERS AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
Here in Austin, TX the weather changes with the wind so having sweaters are essential. Since I love that BOHO vibe, here are a few comfy sweaters I will be rocking this fall season along with some other fun option I will be on the hunt for. I always stock up on sweaters at this sale. I don’t know why. It just happens.
Trouve Drapey Throw on Cardigan
Free People Long Island Stripe Hooded Cardigan
STYLE STAPLE 5: HANDBAGS AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
Over the past few years I have learned the importance of investing in my handbags. No, I don’t have $500 to invest on this style staple, but I can do $100 to $200 and feel good that my purse won’t fall apart anytime soon…or ever. With that said, the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best time to buy a handbag that will last longer than this season. So, here are a few handbag trends that I will be on the look out for at this sale.
Sole Society Paxley Woven Satchel
Studded Faux Leather Crossbody bag on sale for $26.96
STYLE STAPLE 6: JEWELRY AT THE 2016 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
I often wear the same jewelry on repeat because I don’t buy a ton of it. Why? Because I have little kids that somehow find it and destroy through playing dress up. With that said, I will buy a few thing’s each season that catch my attention like these three beauties below.
Faux Sued Arrow Choker Necklace
Now that you know the style staples I am shopping for at this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale season..what are you shopping for?
