Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The sale of the century is here–ha, just kidding! But in all honestly, The Nordstrom Anniversary sale has officially kicked off and I have scoured the pages of the sale and have found my must-have items.  The list is extensive, but if you are anything like me, I love an excuse for a great deal on something I would be purchasing for the season anyways.

With over 70 PAGES of products, it can get really overwhelming to shop for what you really need/want.  For me, during these types of SALES I always look for the classics, or what I like to call the investment pieces. This way I don’t end up with a bunch of random sweaters and dresses that 1. I don’t really need and 2. I can’t mix and match with what is already in my closet.  Here is a breakdown of my must-have items from the sale.

Over the Knee Boots / Stripe Dress / Cashmere Sweater / Nike Sneakers / Suede Handbag / Necklace / Peplum Top / Jeans / Cardigan / RMS Beauty


If there is one pair of boots I would buy, it would be these Over the Knee Boots. Patrick surprised me last year with this pair and they were definitely my most worn item in my closet all Fall and Winter.  I love the subtle heel on this pair too! Another splurge-worthy item would be these Notazzie Booties, but perfect for skinny jeans or dresses with tights.  While it is hard to fathom needing a pair of rain boots in Dallas at the moment, these Hunter Original Refined Matte Rain always come in handy on a rainy day. Plus, I add these socks during the winter when I wear them during our annual visits to Colorado.  These Slip Ons are great for traveling. I have a similar pair from last season that are in heavy rotation.  Another item that is a great sale purchase is sneakers.  These Nikes are adorable too!


If there was one thing I found when looking at the sale, it was cute dresses.  This  Cotton Shirtdress, this Pinstripe Midi Shirtdress, this Silk Sundress, and this beautiful slipdress can all be worn right now. This dress would be perfect for a fall wedding!



One of my favorite things about the Nordstrom sale is grabbing cashmere sweaters at a fraction of their normal price.  Vince is always my go-to for super soft sweaters and this year they have a great selection. I am currently choosing between this  Breton Stripe Cashmere Sweater,  this Cashmere Cardigan Coat, and this Cashmere Step Hem Sweater. This Vince Long Cashmere Cardigan is already is my cart ready for purchase ;)


New to the sale this year, J.Crew and Madewell have super cute styles that you can find at full price at both of the retailers.  A few of my favorites are this J.Crew Cotton Shirtdress, and this Silk Bandana.  Madewell also has so many great items on sale like this top,  this Peplum Top, a Flutter Sleeve, this Plaid Off the Shoulder Top and this Madewell Ryder Cardigan.



If there is one thing to stock up on during the sale it is denim. I always buy one or two pairs this time of year that I can wear throughout the year.  The J.Brand Maria High Waist Skinny Jeans are on sale and have been my favorite for the last five years! I also love these Frame Le Crop Flare High Waist Jeans for a ‘trendy’ style.


If there is one thing I need for this upcoming season, it is tops! When I did my massive closet cleanout, I realized I was a little slim on work and play tops.  This one was the first thing in my cart and this one is just too cute to pass up!



Most of these pieces are under $50–nothing like feeling like you got a steal! I love the idea of adding this necklace to my collection.



If you asked me last year, I probably would think beauty would be the last thing on my list to purchase, but this year we are in a different boat.  The deals are crazy and these items never go on sale, so my plan is to stock up on products I love or want to try.  Here are a few tried and true products that are worth giving a try! The T3 Featherweight 2 Hair Dryer is my hair’s best friend these days. It is lightweight and dries my hair in less than 7 minutes.  This Supergoop I talked about in yesterdays post is on sale, so you know I will be stocking up! I have heard amazing things about these Ouai Hair products, this RMS Beauty Glowing Set and the RODIN oilio Lusso.

Hope you found my breakdown helpful! If you have any questions or need advice on products to buy during the sale, feel free to send me an email or comment below!
