If you’ve read this blog long you know that on Big Sale Days like Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access, I cut to the chase. I was able to preview a bit of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before I left town and I’ve gathered the best of Early Access right here.

Below you’ll find boutiques of the styles I truly love and are the Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access merchandise. This sale is the best time to pick up items you need for fall as well as things to wear now.  I concentrate on classics that will be in my closet for years.

More items will be added during the sale and I will updating the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites tab on my website menu bar daily with great new finds.  You can shop the categories individually on these pages on my site: Handbags and Accessories, Coats and Jackets, Dresses, Denim, Shoes and BootsSweaters and Tops, Beauty Exclusives, ActivewearMen and Home & Gifts.

Easy links to categories you’ll want to shop on Nordstrom.comDenim, Sweaters, TopsDressesHandbagsBootsBootiesBeauty Coats and JacketsSunglasses, Home, Activewear, Mens and Kids.

Items that sell out quickly each year: Tall Boots and Booties, Trend Denim, Puffer Coats, Leather Jackets, Nude Shoes,  and Designer Handbags

Each year, I tell you how great these great boots are and you need them.  They last for years and are warm & waterproof.  I’ve ordered this versatile sweater that is perfect for everyday and travel. This jacket is a dupe for an expensive designer jacket and under $100.

There are two beauty tools that are part of my Nighttime Skincare Routine that are part of the sale.  This one lifts and tones (think non-invasive facelift) and if you buy only one beauty item this year, THIS IS IT!  Trust me it works!

This classic bag comes in three colors. You know I love this brand.  I have the nude leather bag and love it.

Be sure to follow our adventures on Instagram and Instagram Stories.  I’ll also be posting favorites for you to screenshot and shop as well as on The Lush List Facebook page!

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
