It’s here! It’s FINALLY here! The 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially kicks off TODAY (July 11th) for Icon cardholders and you better believe the LIY Team was first in line to shop ’till we dropped! While we did place several online orders — shopping in-store can be hit or miss — we searched racks upon racks of NSALE goodies in person to bring you a first look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Below, you’ll find our favorite finds of the day + widgets with the items that we order online and are awaiting their arrival!

If you can’t shop yet, never fear. Simply add your favorites to your Nordstrom Wish List for easy checkout once it’s your turn to shop! Log into your Nordstrom Account to determine your shopping status! You can find everything you need to know about shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here! Be sure to join our closed Facebook Group for all-things NSALE (hits & misses, try-on hauls, restock alerts, nightly giveaways, and more!) – join the group here! Now that we’ve got the logistics out of the way, let’s dive into our 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds!
