NSale First Look | What I Really Think

This sale is one of the highlights of my summer every year. That said, there are hits and misses. It changes a lot each year and I am very immune to the hype of it all. I do feel the sale isn’t as great as it used to be and am often disappointed, but there ARE still some wins for sure! Here’s my first overview with a few picks I know will be hot sellers right off the bat! 

I reserve the right to change my mind on things as I see them in person- for better or worse- but you’ll hear it all here!

The Shoe Edit

There are a few great choices this year! Sneakers should be your first purchase because they are going to sell out very quickly!

The shoes have always been a big focus on the sale. There are great sneaker options again this year but they lean more athletic than fashion. Be careful in the styles you choose! Some of the colorways are not versatile at all and will not be easy to wear! The reason there are no boots or booties on my list so far is this: The colors are just not versatile, so I’ll wait for better Fall options closer to the season.

Coats and Jackets

There are a few great jacket options this year but make sure you pick what you are really needing.

Jackets are usually the score of the sale- designer items at lower prices! I got my ride or die winter jacket last year during the sale and never looked back. There wasn’t much that caught my eye this year, but this jacket is going to likely be the one to get!

Denim Jeans and Pants

I am SO PICKY with the denim in the sale every year. If you have a go-to brand there are usually some finds-but some of the pieces haven’t been as great in quality as in years past. I will report back- but here are the pairs I have my eye on.

Kut from the Kloth is a killer denim brand that is under $100 a pair. I always land on these jeans as being the most comfortable and flattering in the sale. I do have a few other pairs on my list, and one pair I already swear by is actually included too! 

The Handbags ?

There are no bags. Again. There is one superstar and then a few Longchamp options if you’re in the business for a new one. That said, I’d save your money! But…

I’m always asked for teacher totes during this sale and this one is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. This bag is also back in the sale again this year and it’s another great option. There is one overnight duffle bag under $75 that is an absolute show-stopper!  It gives a head nod to one of my favorite designer brands. If you’re in need, this might be the one.


This sale is made here. This year has some amazing options I have never seen before from favorite brands.

This was an unexpected happening for me! I have a full time job so I don’t live my days in activewear. Leggings are functional for me and no one sees me in them. That said- this year the sale brings activewear with so much polish I will be wearing many of these pieces to work! These pants and this dress are to die for!
