Nordstrom Sale Favorites

Hi guys! With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opening up to the public this Friday (yay!) I wanted to share more of my favorites broken down into a few categories for you. I received my first order and shared everything the other day over on my Insta-stories. Hopefully that was helpful to some of you! How I really wish I could be there shopping in person with each of you. Wouldn’t that be fun?!

I contemplated referring to these selections as ‘must-have’s’ or ‘best picks’ but realized that’s very subjective and my ‘must have’s’ are likely not everyone else’s! However, for those of you that keep coming back, I’m guessing that you have similar taste to me…and I’m pretty sure the feeling is mutual ;) I’m hoping to have done some of the footwork for you in order to save you some unnecessary scrolling time!

During this sale I tend to look for two things: investment items that aren’t typically on sale and basics that I know I’ll be turning to frequently this coming fall and beyond. Many times the items will fall into both categories. For example, I ordered this Madewell jacket and these Rag & Bone jeans, both of which I love and recommend (please, please restock the jacket Nordstrom!). Both are items that will not be on sale regularly if at all before they sell out and both are pieces I’ll be wearing multiple times per week in a few short months. Does that make sense?

Alright well, here we go…

Outerwear: This Madwell jacket is one of my favorite purchases. I ordered it in Ink because my collection of green jackets is slightly out of control. I’m typically an XS in jackets, however the arms on this one ran short on me. I do tend to keep my sleeves rolled though, so it’s not that big of an issue for me. I think this vest would be a great purchase and one I’m probably going to kick myself for not getting it later on. But you know, money doesn’t grow on trees around here ;)


Tops: If you’re looking for a great stand-out top, you can certainly find one or two (or ten) during this sale! I love the wrap style of this one. And bow details are so popular right now. Last year I grabbed this layering top, which comes in a ton of colors, and reached for it all year long. It’s a great staple to have around.



Dresses: Any wedding coming up this fall? This and this number are darling. And I love this little number which I’d layer a cardigan over and throw on some OTK boots with! I love you fall, but I’m still not ready for you just yet ;)



Bottoms: This is the pair that I ordered from the sale this year and they are nothing short of comfortable! Love, love them! I ordered this pair of leggings last year and they certainly got their wear, so I’d definitely recommend getting a pair this year. I just ordered this pair of faux leather leggings thanks to all the rave reviews I’ve been seeing about them on social media. I’m looking forward to wearing them with a long cardi and my Converse.



Footwear: Some of you saw that I ordered these in blush, and I have already be-friended them ;) Last year I ordered a similar pair of suede OTK boots to these and got so much wear out of them. They were and continue to be a great investment for me. I’m also addicted to mules, so both these and these are very tempting!



Accessories: I’m hoping this beauty gets restocked because it’s too beautiful (and functional) for more of you not to be able to have! I know a few of you that snagged it so you’ll have to let us know how wonderful it is in person! LeSpecs have become my new favorite glasses brand over the past year, I think I now own three pairs of them. I have this style in black and receive a ton of compliments on them. The regular price isn’t terrible for sunglasses, but getting them on sale is so much better! And if you’re looking for a simple and classic watch for fall, isn’t this guy just perfect?



Beauty: One splurge-worthy piece in the beauty department, in my opinion, would be the T3 hair-dryer. I’ve had one for years and love it. It dries my hair my quickly and even though I have short hair, I have a lot of it, so this is something I can appreciate! I also love Laura Mercier’s primer which I often mix with her tinted moisturizer during the summer months. Oh and this Nars palette looks like a dream. I use the Laguna bronzer everyday (which is included here) and I’d love to play with some of the blushes that are included!
