As a fashion editor, no time of the year brings me joy like sale season. The thrill of snagging top-notch pieces at a fraction of the price is always exhilarating. And the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just happens to be the land of milk and honey when it comes to summer sale deals. This year, you can save a ton of money on, well, pretty much everything. You can check out the sale preview now and add your faves to your wishlist to make adding to cart a lot easier once the deals are available. I personally can't wait to get my hands on some fall staples, like these bestselling booties and this famously-cozy cardigan. In case you missed it, the sale lasts until July 31 but is broken into tiers based on your Nordstrom membership status. Here’s the deal:

  • Icon Early Access: now to July 14
  • Ambassador Cardmember Early Access: now to July 14
  • Influencer Cardmember Early Access: now to July 14
  • Public Access: July 15 to July 31

Without further ado, here are 23 sale picks I don't plan on missing…and you shouldn’t either.
