2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Early Access Details

Happy Monday Friends! If you have been a Moody Girl In Style reader for a while, then you know how much I love shopping the The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  If you aren't familiar with the sale then check out all of the details that I'm sharing below. 

*note: this post contains affiliate links.


Nordstrom holds the Anniversary Sale every summer to feature some new fall and winter items that are usually marked down about 35  to 40% off. This is the best time to check out the new fall styles for the season and stock up on some wardrobe basics and splurge-worthy pieces like boots, jackets, handbags and high-end denim.  And you can save on lots of well known brands like SPANX, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Free People, Madewell, North Face and so much more!  


The best way to get ready for the #NSale is to know exactly what's included this year.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Preview makes it easy to review and pre-shop all of the items that are available.  If it isn't your turn to shop, then you can save all of your favorites to your wishlist until it's time to checkout. Here are some of my top picks that I have my eye on so far.  Some of them I already own and there are few currently on my wishlist:


Early Access is a special perk reserved for Nordstrom cardmembers. The Nordy Club level is based on yearly spend amounts, though all cardmembers automatically start at Influencer status. You can only shop Anniversary Sale Early Access as a cardmember on the following dates: July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status; July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status; July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status and July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public - Everyone.


The best way to shop the sale before everything sells out is making sure that you have Early Access.  Nordstrom Cardholders have the opportunity to shop the sale about 2 weeks earlier than everyone else. But don't worry if you don't have a Nordstrom card, because the sale is open to the public on July 28th and some of the item will be restocked.

If you don’t already have a Nordstrom Credit Card, then you will need to sign up here to gain early access. And if you apply for the Nordstrom Card before July 10th, then you will get a $60 bonus note that can be used at a later time. 


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be very overwhelming, especially if you don’t have a plan in place.  I think number one thing that you should do is to assess your fall wardrobe and make a list of items that you need to add/replace in your closet. And the second thing that would be helpful is to set an overall budget for yourself.  It’s really easy to get caught up in the excitement of the sale and spend more than you intended.  Remember - that this sale happens every year, so 

Pro Tip: Buy Now, Return Later - With that being said, don’t be afraid to order multiples sizes since some items sell out really fast and the shipping/return is free.  Be sure to focus on items that you use regularly and take advantage of stocking up on wardrobe basics and any home items.  This is also a good time to start thinking of holiday gifts.


I’ve been shopping the Anniversary Sale for a few years now and I’ve noticed that Nordstrom tends to bring back some of the same items.  They may tweek an item here and there, but for the most part some are the same like these High-waisted Zella Leggings, this super soft Plush Throw, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, this Madewell Kent Colorblock Cardigan and the infamous Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw and this year's new floral design.  

This year I plan to be very focused on things that I need to replace in my closet and a few items that I missed out on last year.  I plan to look for a really good pair of jeans, a couple of sweaters, basic t-shirts, a skirt and a couple of shoes.  Below are a few collages with more #nsale items that caught my eye!

I hope this post has been helpful for those of you who plan to shop the sale. Stay tuned for an upcoming try-on session on my blog/Instagram and various collages in my account throughout the week.  And be sure to check back on the blog as I plan to update it with additional #nsale content over the next few weeks. 

As always, thank you for reading Moody Girl In Style and shopping my links! If you have any other questions, leave them in the comments!!

Five Summer Dresses From Walmart!

This post is in partnership with Walmart Fashion!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Today I'm sharing some of my favorite summer dresses and footwear styles from Walmart

I don't know about you, but I'm very excited that we're transitioning back into the world and that we finally have places to go and people to see this summer.  Since so many of us are traveling and making plans for the beach or a backyard barbecue, I thought it would be great time to show you some of the new dresses that I picked up from Walmart over the past couple of months. And don't be surprised to see these dresses a few more times in the next few months, they will be on repeat all summer long.

If you're looking to update your wardrobe and you don't want to break your budget, then you're in the right place. Walmart has several amazing brands right now and they have become my new go-to destination for affordable summer fashion.  One of my favorite Walmart fashion brands is the Free Assembly line for men and women. It's a newish brand that is committed to sustainability with responsible sourcing and considered design. They offer wide selection of eco-friendly fabrics (including organic cotton and recycled polyester) and an inclusive size range. Another one of my favorites is the Scoop line which carries some of the latest fashion trends without putting a dent in your wallet. You can find lots of flirty summer skirts & dress and some of the best heeled sandals in the collection.

Anyways, here are a few of my Walmart pieces that are currently on rotation and I'm going to add a few more that caught my eye lately. Check them out and let me know what you think.

This Free Assembly t-shirt dress is perfect to wear now with some sandals and a cute straw hat on a hot summer day.  And later as we transition into the cooler fall season. Just add a denim jacket and some booties and you are good to go. This t-shirt dress is made from 100% organic cotton and it's a little thicker than your average t-shirt material. This dress fits true to size and I'm wearing a medium.  

This Free Assembly maxi dress is so well made and you can't beat the price. Unfortunately this dress is currently sold out, but various sizes tend to pop back up from time to time. So keep your eye out for it. This one fits true to size and I'm wearing a small. 

This Scoop color block trapeze sundress is one of my favorite purchases this summer. The cut of this dress is timeless and the sherbet colors just scream ready for fun. It's a light and airy dress that's perfect to wear with these $20 Scoop espadrille wedge sandal. Just add this cute cowboy hat to complete the look. This dress fits true to size - I'm wearing a small.

This Time and Tru double v-neck shirttail dress is so versatile and easy to wear this summer.  It has a lightweight cotton material that is very comfortable. I think this would look so cute paired up with a denim jacket tied around the waist with a cute straw hat or add a blazer to dress it up a little more.  I think this dress runs a little big - I'm wearing a small. 

This Time and Tru flutter sleeve tiered dress is perfect to throw on for any just about any occasion this summer.  It's a simple lightweight dress that's super comfortable.  It comes in about 7 different colors and it runs a little big. I'm wearing medium here, but I could have sized down to a small.

Thanks to Walmart for sponsoring today's post.  As always, all opinions are my own.

A Few Last Minute Mother Day’s Gift Ideas

Happy Sunday! I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by and that Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you're like me and you haven't picked up a present yet, then don't freak out - I've got your back. Sometimes it's hard to find the right way to give back to the woman who gave you so much. So I put together a few last minute gift ideas to help show your mom how much she's loved. And if this holiday is hard for you – I see you. I know that it can be a difficult day for so many women without their moms, those trying to be moms and mourning your moms.  Please know that you all are in my thoughts and I'm sending you all a hug.

The list below is filled with a few of my favorites that will help to make your mom her feel extra special next Sunday. I also added a couple codes to some brands that could also make a perfect gift. Enjoy and happy shopping!

My favorite subscription is the Balance Box with the mint flavor.  It would make a great gift for your mom each moth and she can cancel any time.

I'm really loving this whimsical bouquet and this cute Fiddle Leaf Fig plant as a gift option. Use code: 15STEMS for 15% off your order.

Lilly Pulitzer // One of my favorite brands created a fun new print with a purpose called Got Your Back in support of Baby2Baby this month. Baby2Baby is a non-profit organization that provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. I really love that Lilly Pulitzer always finds a way to give back to the community. I'm really loving this cute swing dress, scoop neck tee and these high-rise leggings.
