You guys, it's officially that time again! The time when every blogger in American gives you more than enough information than you could ever digest about the year's greatest sale, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I'm definitely going to try my best to not overwhelm you with too much information, but there are some things you probably want to know when it comes to the sale.

If there was ever a sale to garner a lot of hype and live up to that hype, it would definitely be the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This sale is unlike any other sale because you can get next seasons newest items at a major discount. So many of Fall's hottest pieces including designer purses, shoes and clothing will be heavily marked down. I know you probably think it's crazy to shop for Fall clothing in the middle of Summer, but it's so smart to help you save a bunch of money and look incredibly chic when the cooler weather comes around. 

Early access for Nordstrom cardholders starts on Thursday which means there's still time to sign up! The early access period lasts from July 13-20 and the public phase starts on July 21 and lasts through August 6th. The public phase is when anyone and everyone can shop the sale.

I love shopping the sale during the early access period because all the best pieces sell out quick! Nordstrom does a great job of restocking the most popular items, but I still suggest becoming a Nordstrom cardholder and shopping the sale starting on Thursday. I live just a few block from the flagship store here in Seattle and have already booked a shopping appointment with my favorite sales associate. If you haven't already done so, book an appointment! The Nordstrom employees know the sale in and out and can guide you to the best deals and steals.

Make sure and check back here on Thursday because I will be sharing all of my sale picks to make shopping the sale a little easier for you!
