When it comes to sales, I like to buy for the upcoming season instead of buying for a past season. That’s why spring sales are the best because it’s basically your summer wardrobe but on sale. But a lot of times I get overwhelmed when stores (specifically department stores) have store-wide sales. It’s a lot of products to go through and if you are like me, you give up early. But I’ve learned to navigate sales a bit more beneficially. So I pulled a few of my favorite products that I’ve found above and what I typically look for in a sale, especially at Nordstrom. The key pieces that I start with and look for are brands that I love, purses, denim, shoes and dresses. I tend to forego a ton of accessories because that’s usually not where the best sales are. So let’s get started! This post goes best with a cup of coffee. (If after 5pm, proceed with wine.)
Kate Spade: SO much Kate Spade is on sale. One of my favorite patterns from their spring collection is on major sale as well. I’ll be wearing a dress with this pattern soon but they still have it in this pretty pencil skirt and full skirt. This shirt dress I wore a few posts ago is also 40% off now!
Joie is another brand I love to shop on sale. You can find all Joie’s sale here. I just picked up this blouse yesterday and have already worn it twice. How that is possible in 12 hours? I have no idea.
Denim: I think I’ve said this before but I like to look for non-seasonal staples during sales like this. Denim is year-round so when my favorite brands and designers of denim go on sale, I like to buy them then. You can find all denim on sale here and my favorite brands of denim on sale here.
Shoes: This is the time to get sandals for summer. Flat sandals here, wedges here, and heeled sandals here. My rule of thumb? A neutral sandal, a neutral wedge and a black strappy heel are always a summer need.
Dresses: Last but definitely not least, the dress selection for this sale is incredible. You can find all dresses on sale here. Again with a selection this large, I like to go with either my favorite fit or style or I got with a favorite brand of mine. Eliza J is one of my favorites from Nordstrom.
