It's the most wonderful time of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here!!
This sale is amazing but it can get a little overwhelming. My little trick: I shop the sale by going through page by page of each department I am interested in (Women's, Home, etc) and add EVERY item I like in my cart. After doing so you can just imagine the total damage in my cart 🙈 After that, I start discarding items one by one until I am left with all the items I just cannot bear to live without. Ok, maybe I could live without them but I really don't want to live without them i.e. I had to purchase them 😂 This kind of takes a long time but it gets me really familiar with the sale and I have to be sure I don't miss anything, duh. Anyways, I love shopping this sale and I love checking out what other people purchased so I thought I'd share my purchases as well as other items I had my eye on. All the items I purchased are under $100 😉 TIP: Don't get discouraged that some items are sold out. Keep going back and checking on them every day! I know Nordstrom restocks some (not all) items. Just a reminder: Early Access goes through Thursday, July 20th and then the public sale is July 21st through August 6th!

1. Zella - Moonlight High Waist Midi Leggings. If you've never tried Zella leggings YOU ARE MISSING OUT! I was in the market for new basic leggings and wasn't sure if I wanted to make the splurge for Lulu. I did some research on comparing the two brands of leggings and the majority of my favorite bloggers say they prefer Zella to Lulu Lemon. These leggings are unreal!! They are unfortunately sold out but HERE is another pair that comes in cute colors.
2. Steve Madden - Gabbie Thigh High Boots. I cannot wait to break out the thigh high boots this fall! These also come in black. These are a perfect dupe if you didn't want to splurge on a pair of Stuart Weitzman's. If you did, however, want to purchase a pair of Stuart Weitzman's then the place to do so is at this sale! THIS PAIR is almost 50% off! You won't find this kind of sale anywhere else.
3. ASTR the Label - Satin Ruffle Hem Romper. I feel like the best items in the sale are usually fall pieces so I was really excited to find this romper! This is such a pretty dusty rose/mauve color and the tie waist and ruffle hem is super flattering. I will definitely be wearing this as much as I can this summer.
4. Topshop - Lattice Back Sweater. This is my favorite purchase out of my list!! I am obsessed with the bell sleeves and the cute back. It also comes in white! I can't wait to wear this in the fall.
5. MAC - Call Me Love Lip Kit. Anyone who knows me knows that I love my lip kits. You don't even want to know how much I've spent on Kylie Lip Kits 🙈 I was super excited about this purchase!! This color is so pretty and this versatile pink can be worn year round. This kit comes in two other colors: a pretty nude HERE and a sultry bold red HERE. I think all 3 are so pretty and I kind of want them all...
6. Quay - Living Large Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses. I personally don't think you can have enough sunglasses. I was so excited these Quay's were part of the sale! The mirrored lens is so pretty and I love that these have an oversized shape which definitely sets these apart from other aviator's I own (Ray Bans, Tory Burch).
7. Caslon - Draped Utility Jacket. I am a sucker for utility jackets. I think they are such an easy and perfect fall outfit. This greyish blue color is sold out but they still have the olive color! I was initially going to snag the olive one but I already have an army green color jacket and wanted to get something a little different.

1. STS Blue - Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans. These are under $40!!! Not going to lie, if any of my items I purchased don't work out for me I think I will be buying these. This brand of jeans is SO flattering and slimming. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a new pair of jeans!
2. BLANKNYC - Suede Moto Jacket. I think Nordstrom has had a sale on this Moto jacket for the past few years now. I absolutely love this jacket but I didn't want to go too crazy with my shopping. This is such a perfect piece for fall and comes in 3 gorgeous colors. This is another item you won't ever find on sale!
3. Louise et Cie - Bylot Twist Mule. I am alllll about mule slides lately. I have a black Steve Madden pair (UNDER $60 - HERE) that I get so many compliments on at work! These are not only great for work but will be perfect for fall. The twist detailing is so pretty!
4. Rebecca Minkoff - Small Love Nubuck Crossbody. This color is currently sold out so I've linked the pattern version that is still available! I have a really good feeling this will be restocked so keep checking ;) This bag has a designer look without the hefty price tag.
5. NARS - Angel Pride Cheek Palette. This has a value of $175!! The palette features four new limited edition blushes as well as a highlighting and bronzing powder. I bought a NARS blush and bronzer palette last year and it is my absolute favorite blush I own. If I didn't still have so much of it left I would 100% be buying this. This is such a great value and will last you so long.
6. Tory Burch - Collins Double Wrap Leather Strap Watch. How pretty is this watch?! Ever since I got my Apple Watch, I don't really wear any other kind of watches so I think that's the only thing that held me back from making this purchase! The strappy wrap feature makes this accessory double as a watch and a cute bracelet.
7. Topshop - Layered Sleeve Ruffle Cardigan. I was so close to getting this sweater! I was between this and the bell sleeve Topshop sweater that I bought actually. This has been a really popular item during the Early Access Sale - I have seen so many bloggers purchasing this! The ruffle layered sleeves and the light lilac color are so cute - the pictures on the website seriously do not do it justice!
8. Madewell - Checkmate Fringe Scarf. This sale is the perfect time to start putting together your fall wardrobe. I love this fringe scarf! The perfect oversized scarf that you can wear so many ways. There's a similar one HERE in blue.

Happy shopping!


  1. That sweater is my favorite! I also love it for the bell sleeves!

  8. I totally go back and forth between Zella and Lululemon. I have to say, I don't own Zella leggings because I love how Lulu has a high waist and I feel like they suck me in more. On the other hand, I have a pair of Zella yoga pants that I love. Again, though, the yogas aren't high waisted which isn't comfortable for me. I will say that both are great because they don't get pilly and fade after numerous washes!

    1. The leggings I got are high waisted!! They totallllly suck everything in and keeps it in place if you know what I mean, haha :) I do kind of want a pair of Lulu's just so I can compare but I just can't bring myself spend all the money on a pair of leggings or yogas! Thanks for checking out my post :)

  9. The topshop lattice back sweater is so cute as well as the ruffled jumper. Cute picks! xx Nikita
