The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is basically Christmas in July for Nordstrom lovers and it’s definitely worth having a Nordstrom card to get early access to the sale before it’s open to the public. I use the Anniversary Sale as an opportunity to stock up on shoes for the kids that they can wear through Fall and Winter, as well as essentials for myself. I also keep my eye out for a few special items to add to my closet. Here are my top picks from the sale.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to stock up on cozy sweaters and tops. After seeing this Barefoot Dreams sweater as a top pick on every blog last year, I finally broke down and got one. Rails makes great button down shirts, but they’re also pricey so it’s nice to get them on sale. The pink stripe shirt has a touch of linen making it perfect for Summer, while the black and white plaid is a classic for Fall. The Halogen Gathered Neck Blouse is clean and almost minimalist with an interesting ruffle neck.
Denim and leggings are always popular items during the Anniversary Sale. I’ve been wanting a pair of Frame skinny jeans for a while, but most of the options have a raw hem or slit, which aren’t my cup of tea. This olive pair has the perfect high rise (9 1/2 inches) and would be great paired with burgundy pumps. I love the wash of this Good American pair, but I’m on the fence with the raw hem. I don’t really need another pair of leggings, but my sister says that Alo leggings are the best so I was happy to pick up a pair at a great price.
Can you ever have too many workout clothes? I’m a big fan of Zella — the price to performance ratio beats every other high end athleisure brand out there. I bought the Live In Leggings in black last year and they’ve held up well so I chose this pretty pink cropped pair this year which is already sold out. Tip: if you find something you really love that’s sold out, keep checking back because things get restocked frequently. Another Zella favorite is their sports bras. This low impact sports bra looks comfortable and has a pretty back. I bought two sets of these Stance socks last year and I love them so I got this cute pink set to match my cute pink pants. These Zella Tab Back Socks are another great basic to stock up on. There are some great deals on Nike shoes at the moment. This purple Nike Free RN 2018 pair is amazingly comfortable and these Nike Free TR8 trainers will be great for my BBG workouts.
I’ll have more top picks to share tomorrow for accessories and loungewear!
