My favorite sale of the year is just around the corner! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy it makes me to share my styling tips with you. Pulling outfits and home interiors have been my calling ever since I was a little girl. And with all the hours, research, and LOVE I invest in this blog, it wouldn’t be possible without you and your support. Whether I’m styling a new look, shopping in store, or browsing online, I always have my readers in mind.

I’m so grateful for your trust and in return, you can always count on me to be honest when promoting brands. I will always and ONLY share brands and products that I have tried myself and really enjoyed. I love getting your messages that you found a dress through my blog or were inspired by one of my photos. This is my passion and I am so happy to share, help, and inspire you fabulous women!

This year I’m more excited than ever to help you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! This is my 2nd year sharing this sale on my blog ( 4th year shopper ;P ) and I’ve learned some great tips along the way that I am so excited to share with you!


So some of you may be asking, what is so great about this sale?! This yearly event is allllll about getting crazy discounts on new arrivals! This is the perfect time to take inventory of your closet, analyze what you have, what you need, and start making a game plan to get the most bang for your buck. Keep scrolling for 5 tips that you can do before the sale to get ahead!



*ONE … If you don’t have a Nordstrom card already, I highly recommend getting one for the Sale. I am one of the girls that signed up for the card, strictly for this sale & rewards 😉 Card holders will get to shop the sale ONE WEEK EARLY before it’s open to the public.  Considering a lot of stuff sells out quick this is a great way to “beat the crowds” without leaving your living room. You can find more details or sign up for your Nordstrom card here.


*TWO … Download the LiketoKnow.it App.  Guys, this app is FREE and it’s where I’ll be sharing ALL my Nordstrom Sale styled outfits!  Some of these looks will be posted on my instagram…but MOST will be exclusively posted in the LiketoKnow.it app.  Apple users download the free app HEREAnroid users download the free app HERE. Once in the app, you can find me by searching “kellitesta”


*THREE … Take a good look at your closet.  This step will actually help you save money because you will have a clearer idea of what you need and what you don’t need!  I’ve been guilty more than once of thinking I needed something, to later seeing it hanging there in my closet.  Also think long term and seasonally. Do you have any events or trips in the next 6 months? Do you need a new winter coat? Do your kids need clothes for Back to School? I usually keep a running list on my Keep Notes app for things I am looking for for myself and family members. Write down or type out what pieces you might need. Also, I know none of us want to think of the holidays quite yet, but they always sneak up quicker than planned. Now is a great time to start getting a few gifts for GREAT prices.


*FOUR … Browse the Nordstrom Anniversary Catalog to get an idea of somethings you are looking for. Keep in mind there will be much MORE, but this will get your creative juices flowing! You can view the catalog HERE.


*FIVE … Make sure to enter my Giveaway for a $1,000 Nordstrom Gift Card. One lucky gal will win this just in time to shop the sale!! Enter my giveaway HERE.

And lastly, I will leave you with a few important dates for the sale.

JULY 12-19:  Early Access in store and online for Nordstrom Cardholders

JULY 20-AUGUST 5: Sale opens to the public

AUGUST 6: All items go back to full price
