nordstrom anniversary sale picks

It seems like everyone and their mother is talking about this sale, but it IS pretty exciting. The Nordstrom anniversary sale is a time when new fall/winter products come out and you can buy them for pretty deep discounts - in early August, the prices go up again. If you like planning ahead for your next season's wardrobe, this is the perfect time to stock up on the things you need or the things you've been saving for and wanting for a while. In this post I go through some of my favorite things in the sale (this is basically my sale wishlist, divided into the store's sale categories)! Public access starts July 21, so start planning now! Sales like this can get pretty overwhelming, so it's always good to go in with a game plan. I hope you enjoy this post! Please leave a comment at the end with what you'll be buying!

I'm so in love with the feminine ruffle detail on this top! It also comes in black and heather grey. Sale: $45.90 After Sale: $69.00

This is such a pretty everyday dress - perfect for work and weekends! It also comes in black and a burgundy floral option. Sale: $65.90 After Sale: $99.00

Fall/winter is always leggings season, so you definitely should stock up now! These have a nice structured but comfy feel and the petite length minimizes bunching up at ankles. Sale: $31.90 After Sale: $49.00

designer collections

Y'all know I love my Burberry jacket, and this classic style is in the sale for almost $300 off! Sale: $499.90 After Sale: $795.00

Okay so this is a really cool hi-low top so make sure to click through to Nordstrom for more photos. You can wear it as seen here with the short side at the front, or you can turn it around and tie a knot on the bottom of the longer side. It's a splurge but you'll get so many wears out of it! Sale: $249.90 After Sale: $375.00

These sunglasses are soooo chic! The thick rounded frames will make you look so glamorous - it reminds me of sunglasses Jackie O would have worn or something Anna Wintour would wear, but it's less severe looking since it's very rounded. Sale: $293.90 After Sale: $440.00

beauty exclusives

I love my Giorgio Armani foundation, so I'd love to try out their illuminating products. This set is such a good deal and will be perfect for taking your summer glow into the fall. Sale: $85.00 Value: $126.00

philosophy purity made simple cleanse & smooth trio

My philosophy cleanser is my favorite cleanser and it's running out, so I may have to grab myself this set. You get two sizes of the cleanser (perfect for travel!) and a large sample of their exfoliating facial wash. I really admire philosophy as a brand since they support mental health advocacy groups, so definitely go buy some of their products in the sale! Sale: $55.00 Value: $87.00

Clinique's moisture surge products are my favorite for moisturizing when my skin is feeling extra dry, so I love using it for winter. It's a really wet gel consistency that feels so refreshing on your skin and it really helps inject moisture back into your face. Sale: $99.00 Value: $146.50

handbags & accessories

I fell in love with this bag when I saw it in the sale! It's so ladylike but still structured like something the Queen of England would wear. It's also faux leather so it's good for any vegetarians or vegans. Sale: $149.90 After Sale: $229.00

I've loved this bag for a long time and this plushy pink velvet is just screaming my name. It's a super cute going out bag or it could even be an every day bag if you're extra like me. Sale: $116.90 After Sale: $175.00

I currently use a Tumi backpack for my commute to work and for when I travel and it's holding up so well! They're very light while still being sturdy and they can hold a lot! I always feel like my belongings are well protected inside my Tumi bag. It's definitely an investment you should make if you're a backpack kind of girl. Sale: $263.90 After Sale: $395.00

shoes

My Tory Burch flats are an essential piece in my wardrobe. You always need a pair of classic ballerina flats, whether it's for work or the weekend. Tory Burch ones also quite comfortable! Snap these up before the sale ends! Sale: $164.90 After Sale: $268.00

My Hunter boots are a lifesaver when it's raining or snowing. If you're lacking in good footwear for inclement weather, these are a good place to start! Sale: $119.90 After Sale: $185.00

Mules and loafers are here to stay, so if you haven't already added a pair or two to your wardrobe, these are a chic and affordable option! Sale: $52.90 After Sale: $79.95

clothing

PAIGE Hoxton High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

PAIGE is one of my favorite denim brands. They're so comfortable and always have the right combination of stretch and structure. If you want to get yourself a pair, now is the time! Sale: $99.90 After Sale: $189.00

One of my favorite off the shoulder tops has a collar like this and I think it's such a chic menswear inspired look but still very delicate and feminine because of the off shoulder silhouette. Highly recommend this top! Sale: $29.90 After Sale: $45.00

I saw this dress in the sale and fell in love with the lace detailing. I actually haven't really tried out the choker dress/top trend but this dress makes me really want to give it a shot. Sale: $38.90 After Sale: $59.00

This top gives me major Zimmerman vibes! It's a very sexy top and you can definitely amp up your look whether you decide to wear a bralette or tank underneath. Sale: $45.90 After Sale: $69.00

I may have squealed a little when I saw this cardigan. The Anniversary Sale is a great time to prep your cold weather wardrobe with warm fluffy pieces and this cardigan screams warm and fluffy. I can imagine spending every cold day in this cardigan - I'd probably throw it on over everything. Sale: $55.90 After Sale: $85.00

I always look out for good workout gear deals during the sale, and this year the popular Nike Windrunner jacket is in the sale again! It's a super cute jacket to wear when you're working out when it's a bit colder or just something to wear on casual athleisure type days. Sale: $67.90 After Sale: $90.00
