My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks + Wishlist

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off today for top-tier cardholders! If you’re not familiar with this yearly sale, it’s a time when you can get fall apparel, accessories, shoes, and more at a discounted price first (and then the prices go up to regular price). I’ve shopped it the last couple of years and have gotten some great things through it! I often use the sale as an opportunity to invest in things, like cashmere, designer bags, and big-ticket home items, that I know I’ll use for years to come. I will also buy some of the trendier, less expensive things like comfy tops and an everyday bra.

There’s a pretty good selection this year, although I also see a lot of repeats from years past. I’ve browsed through most everything that will be available in the sale and narrowed down my favorite items and the things on my wishlist. Quite a few things included are pieces that I already own old versions of or very similar items, so I’m planning to share some outfit options for you with those things!

Here’s a look at my favorite clothing options in the sale this year:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22

I always like to shop for basics that can be worn and styled different ways, so that I get the most use out of them. I’m loving all the sweaters and Moto jackets that are included this year! Also, the two bras that I linked are two of my most worn. The strapless is the most comfortable one I’ve ever worn that actually stays up. The classic bra is my go-to for everyday wear.

Here’s a look at my favorite shoes and accessories for this year:

I’m still a big fan of the mule-style of shoes, so I’m happy to see a lot of options again this year! I love mules for fall, early winter, and spring – they’re a great alternative to traditional flats.

Here’s a look at my top picks for home:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14

There are some seriously good home picks this year, including lots of Barefoot Dreams blankets. And if you’re wondering if Barefoot Dreams blankets are worth the price, I would say that they 100% are! They’re the only blankets we use – I sleep with one every night and then have another in our living room for cozying up while watching TV. I also love that the Capri Blue candles are included. The coastal scent is so good!

Here’s a look at my top picks for baby gear:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

We love this blanket for Liam – it’s so soft and cozy. Our stroller is included in the sale, which is amazing! It’s a fantastic stroller and I love that it will grow with him. The bottles we’ve been using, as well as the high chair we have for him (when the time comes) are also included!

My top picks in the beauty category:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Between a set of my favorite silk pillow cases, my self-tanner, and the two brow products I use religiously, the beauty selection is not to be overlooked!

Here’s a look at what I’m considering purchasing:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

Here’s a look at my wishlist for the sale this year! I’m loving the loungewear options, especially since I’m doing a lot of loungewear at home these days. I’m definitely ordering this jacket, since I already have it in black from last year and wore it a ton! I’m also going to be checking out as soon as possible with these sunglasses – they look great!

I’ll continue to share some outfit ideas and things that I find, if you’re shopping the sale this year and would like some direction on what’s worth purchasing. The sale opens to everyone on August 19th  and even earlier if you’re a Nordstrom card member)!
