Oh it’s time ladies… public access to The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Is HERE! *pops champagne* 🥂 

If you didn’t see my last post about this sale, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prep, I talked about the importance of buying your annual wardrobe & beauty staples during this time.

Why? Because these are high quality, long lasting pieces that you can snag at seriously discounted prices. AND these prices are going right back up to normal as soon as this sale is over… regret is a horrible feeling, lets not let that happen. 


I've skimmed through 40+ pages of sale items to save you time, and bring you the BEST picks, in my opinion.

You trust me right? ;)


...and believe me when I say I had to weed through some "oh that's why they're on sale" items. 

When splurging on pricey pieces, I only gravitate towards solid basics & neutral colors that can be worn (or used) in many ways for years to come.  

Basically, you don't have to worry about the trend fading, ex: gingham right now... love love love it. Next year? Might not be so hot... so I won't be spending $100's on a gingham jacket this season you know!?

However, splurging on a classic, black leather jacket? Absolutely. A perfect example of a timeless piece that's worth the extra penny.

Now, lets take a closer look into my sale picks:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

1. Sheer water repellent hoodie

 was $65 / SALE $42.90.

My fav top to wear to spin class, or just during the day when you're pretending you're actually going to the gym. Light, breathable fabric ... the perfect top to go with shorts or leggings.

2. Autumn High Waist Moto Leggings

 was $75 / SALE $49.90.

Speaking of leggings and pretending to go to the gym.... I practically live in leggings (and yes, leggings are pants in my book). Zella does not disappoint in this category... they'll be your new fav pair as well as these that are also on sale. 

3. LunarEpic Low Flyknit Running Shoe

 was $160 / SALE $119.90

A classic white sneaker for $40 off orig price? Literally can't go wrong. 

4. Sophia One-Piece Swimsuit

 was $178 / SALE $118.90

Who CAN'T use another adorable one piece swimsuit? This one from Robin Piccone is an absolute classic. Also available in black which is even cheaper for some reason? Hey I won't ask questions.

5. Marant Faux Leather Duffle Bag

was $84.95 / SALE $56.90

Yes, yes, yes. This is legit the perfect, most versatile overnight/weekend duffle bag.

6. The Prince Rimless Mirrored Sunglasses

 was $89 / SALE $58.90

These light gold stunners from Le Specs are a must. Will these ever go out of style? Nope.

7. Avalon Gradient Lens Square Sunglasses

 was $120 / SALE $79.90

The original pair in the photo sold out, womp. BUT these chic sunnies are a close second and seriously discounted. 

8.  Lola Semiprecious Stone Drop Earrings

 was $75 / SALE $49.90

I just think these earrings from Gorjana are SO beautiful. Dainty gold jewelry with turquoise is and always will be my "add to cart" weakness. Perfect to gift or selfishly keep for yourself (like me.)

9. Gabbie Thigh High Over the Knee Boots

 was $129.95 / SALE $86.90

You know you're going to want black, classic, over-the-knee boots AS SOON as the temp starts dropping. Why wait? I know it's weird buying boots when you can still fry an egg on the sidewalk outside, but winter will be here before we know it. Might as well save some $$. 

Another gorgeous pair from Charles David here.

10. Ivan Faux Leather Backpack

 was $64.95 / SALE $42.90

UGH the original Rebecca Minkoff backpack in the photo is no longer avail on sale (I told you I pick the most desirable items) BUT this one from Sole Society is even more neutral and so much cheaper! Blessing in disguise?

Anyways, I always always aways travel with a chic little backpack. Perf for exploring a new city! 

11. Small Love Embroidered Nubuck Crossbody Bag

 was $275 / SALE $183.90

Shocker, another Rebecca Minkoff sale item that was wiped out. I ended up buying the Small Love Embroidered Crossbody Bag because I love this Rebecca Minkoff style bag SO MUCH that I own in 3 different colors. This print is still neutral but also super fun, and I know I'll get a ton of use out of it. That discounted price was way too attractive to turn down. 

12. Carmine Off The Shoulder Dress

 was $269 / SALE $179.90

Guys I LOVE Paige dresses but I don't necessarily love their prices... that's why when I find them on sale I jump on it.

Here's another awesome dress under $50 . The kind of flirty, versatile dress that you wish you had in your closet on more than one occasion. 

13. Cutout Choker Tee

 was $28 / SALE $17.90

Tee's like this under $20!?!? You can never have too many! Likee I currently have this tee in 3 different colors in my cart RN: white, black and grey. Throw on with skinnies or cutoff shorts/denim skirt for an effortlessly chic look.

Think winter time: buy one a couple sizes too big to wear with a jacket over leather leggings

14. Life Changer Moto Jacket

 was $98 / SALE $64.90

Whether it's faux leather or genuine leather, now is the time to stock up on this timeless piece! 

Into suede as well? This one makes me heart skip beats and is $100 OFF orig price! 

15. Look In A Box Nice n' Spicy Lip Kit

 SALE $36.50

If you've ever seen a photo on my social media and liked my lip color, there's a 80% chance I'm wearing Nice N' Spicy lipliner from Mac. So needless to say, I was V excited when I saw this kit in the Nordstrom sale.

The lipliner by itself is already $21.00... but in this kit you're getting The Matte Liquid Lipcolor (lasts up to 8 hrs), the Nice n' Spicy lipliner, AND the Prep + Prime lip. 

16. Skin Cleanser By Clarisonic

 was $129 / SALE $86.00

I already have one of these bad boys and use it about 3x's per week on my face + chest and LOVE it. Unfortunately I paid full price for it, and these will surely go right back up to $129 after this sale is over. 

A few other seriously discounted items to consider before they're gone:

Make sure to check back daily as I replace sold out items with fresh picks! 

I'd love to hear about your favs from this sale. Any other goodies I missed!?
