(A few of my favorite items from the Nordstrom sale above. Hover over the images above and click to go directly through to the product! You are magical.)

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.)

A few key highlights of the sale:

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.

Handbags: Kate Spade, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and so many more are on sale! A Kate Spade classic satchel here and I also love this Longchamp Tote, perfect for summer! All handbags on sale here.

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.

Whew! And that’s how I navigate a huge sale. Oh and I just finished three cups of coffee, how about you? Hopefully this helps you find some gems for the summer time.
Happy long weekend, friends!

    I’ve been looking for a new bag, preferably a bright color because most of the ones I have now are darker, and I think I’ve found one at Nordstrom, thanks for sharing the sale!

      I know I feel like there is too much out there too. That’s why I usually shy away from sales, but like you said it’s too good of a sale to pass up!
