When the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale comes around annually, I do most of my damage for the year. After all, I live in a place where it’s cold 80% of the time (or so, haven’t figured out the New York climate yet!), so sweaters, jeans, and boots make up the majority of my wardrobe. I used to think the NSale was silly, but after a few years of shopping it, I’ve come to really love finding my fall and winter staples!
They brought back a few favorites this year, like the wubby pullover, Blondo boots, and the Spanx leather leggings.
While I don’t think anything this year is completely out of this world, there are still quite a few items that I’d definitely be adding to cart if I weren’t saving for our wedding. I did snag a few things, though. ?
P.S. If you don’t need all my commentary and want to go straight to my favorite things from this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, head to The Shop! The Shop is a new page I created to curate my favorite things. Now onto the commentary!
CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES
SPANX Faux Leather Leggings – $64.90 (Normally $98)
I wear these all. winter. long.
AG High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans – $149.90 (Normally $225)
I’ve heard the best things about AG jeans, and eventually want to get a pair! I’m all stocked up for this year, though.
Moonlight Pajamas in Short and Long – $42.90 for long and $35.90 for short
These PJs as SOOO comfy. I bought 2 pairs for Idan’s sister when she was pregnant and nursing and she lives in them! They are a fantastic gift for anyone, but especially preggo friends.
Lace Cami – $25.90 (normally $39)
I’m going to be honest–these lace camis look weird AF on me. I’m going to order this one and try it one more time, because they look awesome on other people. Maybe I’m overthinking it? Either way, this is a steal!
Madewell 10-Inch High Waist Skinny Jeans – $89.90 (normally $135)
They ran out of my size already and I am so sad!!
Natori Feathers Underwire Bra – $44.90 (normally $68)
Okay sorry to talk about my bras on the internet but this is the ONLY bra I own. Multiple of them, obviously. I buy these every single year because they are the best. Adding more to my cart now.
Turtleneck Sweater – $45.90 (normally $69)
I just really like this.
Suede Miniskirt – $64.90 (normally $98)
I bought this last year and am soooo glad I did. It’s one of the most versatile pieces I own! They have it in 2 colors.
Leopard Print Slip Skirt – $49.90 (normally $79)
Because if you don’t own a leopard print skirt these days, who even are you?? (Kidding)
Kate Spade statement earrings – $37.90 (normally $58)
I thought these were Kendra Scott when I first saw them! Even though they’re statement earrings, I feel like they’d go with just about anything.
Free People Knit Tunic – $98.90 (normally $148)
That French tuck, though…
Wubby Fleece Pullover – $49.90 (normally $78)
This sold out so fast last year so I am considering pulling the trigger… work from home days would never be the same. NOTE: I ordered this in a size small and am returning and getting an extra small instead.
Adidas Swift Run Sneaker – $63.90 (normally $85)
I have no idea about the technical functionality of these shoes, but they’re so cute!
Vince Camuto Knee High Boots – $159.90 (normally $239.95)
I reeeeally like these. But I like these even better…
Blondo Noreen **Waterproof** Knee High Boots – $159.90 (normally $239.95)
I have heard people sing praises of these boots for ages so I finally bought them (with a gift card! I promise!). I can’t believe they’re water and salt proof and THIS pretty. Thank you, Blondo! NOTE: Size up on these! I ordered my usual 7.5 and had to re-order an 8! More Blondo below:
Blondo Eloise **Waterproof** Bootie – $104.90 (normally $159.95)
Okay, I also bought these (in the brown suede color). I have no booties left from years of Chicago wear and tear, and I justified that these are *also* water and salt proof!! NOTE: Size up on these! I ordered my usual 7.5 and had to re-order an 8!
Cole Haan GrandPro Sneaker – $84.90 (normally $130)
If you followed my trips to Paris, London, and Israel, you know that I wear these sneakers to death. And they’re included in the sale (!!!). I will say that I don’t know if this light color that’s featured is a true white like mine (it’s called Nimbus Cloud Leather), but for 85 bucks it’s absolutely worth a shot. These fit true to size–I wear my normal 7.5.
HOME AND BEAUTY
Diptyque set of 5 travel candles – $55 (a $75 value)
Okay, first of all I think it’s hilarious that companies use the term “travel candle.” Please raise your hand if you take a candle with you on trips, because we need to talk. All jokes aside, I absolutely love Diptyque fragrances and these little candles are a steal! They’re a REALLY great gift, too. This set sells out every year!
Diptyque Candle and Eau de Toilette Set – $72 (a $105 value)
If you’re going to buy a Diptyque set during this sale, I would think this should be it. It has the best fragrances in it, like Baies for a candle and Do Sons for an Eau de Toilette!
Supergoop! Setting Powder Set with Refills – $39 (a $79 value)
We use a lot of Supergoop! products in this house (apartment?) and this setting powder is wonderful. You know when you’re halfway through the day and realize you need to reapply SPF but don’t know how to without messing up your makeup? See above. You’re welcome.
Beachwaver with 1.25″ Barrel – $133 (normally $199)
This thing automatically rotates to curl your hair. Whaaaaa!!
Capri Blue JUMBO Volcano Candle – $56.90 (normally $86)
It is taking every bit of power I have not to add this to my cart. If you’re a fan of how Anthropologie smells, and you want your house to smell like that, buy this candle.
Aaaaaand that’s a wrap. Thanks for shopping along! And let me know if you got any of these super sale items so I can be jealous!!
