Today marks the last day of Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means tomorrow, July 19, is the first day the sale goes public! I recently shared what I have and love from the sale, and today I’m sharing the best of the Nordstrom Sale and what I purchased. This year, I kept the shopping to a minimal. Like I said here, you don’t need to buy everything, just buy the best.
WHAT I PURCHASED SO FAR
These Levi’s jeans might be my favorite purchase from the sale. I initially got them in my usual size 25, but ended up needing size 27. I definitely need them hemmed, but I’m obsessed with the fit, silhouette, and comfort of these jeans. I’d recommend going up two sizes. I’m also keeping this super chunky Topshop sweater in the oatmeal color. I ordered a size XS and it’s the perfect fit. This sweater will definitely be one of my fall staples.
My trusty pair of leggings that I’ve had since college recently ripped, so I got these as a replacement. Even though I am returning them because they are too thick for me, they were the perfect fit. I got them in XS Petite and loved that they didn’t scrunch up at my ankles. If you want a good pair of leggings for the winter, these are it. I ended up caving into the snakeskin trend and got these boots in a size 7. I’m usually a 7 in boots, but these were too big. I love the style of the boot, but the snakeskin print doesn’t match my style. If you’re looking for faux snakeskin boots, I think these are the best ones part of the sale. Size down if you are between sizes. The only cardigan I purchased was this Topshop cardigan in the camel color. I realized I have a few cardigans almost identical, so I’ll be returning this one.
I ordered these leggings, this necklace in gold, and this sweater but they all got canceled. I’m still checking back to see if I can snag them in my size/color. I’m also loving the soft caramel and pink colors in this sweater. For fall and winter, I’m really liking this bomber coat and this wrap scarf. The bomber coat would be great for every day casual wear and I’m such a sucker for soft wrap scarves when it’s chilly. As for beauty, I’ve been wanting to try OUAI for years and I might start with this OUAI to Glow Set. Hopefully everything will probably be restocked once the sale goes public, so I’ll try my luck then!
Here are the best clothing options in my opinion for the fall season. You’ll find lots of grids and patterns. All these pieces can be worn in many different ways, so they are the most bang for your buck.
SHOES + ACCESSORIES
I’m usually most excited about the shoe selection during this sale, but this year disappointed. At least there are a few good hat selections. Hats have recently been my favorite accessory. This one is a dupe of the Lack of Color hat that I have (seen here). And if you’re like me and can’t go all in on the snakeskin print, this subtle snakeskin hat is a great option. I don’t usually buy jewelry, but I was surprised to see this Bony Levy Diamond Ring on sale because I considered purchasing it as a wedding ring. It’s a great price for all my bride-to-be’s out there. Lastly, the only bag worth purchasing from the sale is this Madewell Transport Tote. I have the brown leather without the suede stripe and it’s been my every day bag for the past 6 years. I love how the suede stripe gives the bag some dimension. Mine is getting so beat up that I would probably have bought this one if I didn’t have a wedding to save for.
BEAUTY + HOME
I was never confident in applying makeup until I discovered Beauty Blender, so I would 100% recommend it. Plus, the glitter case that comes in the Beauty Blender Set would be ideal for travel. The Anastasia Brow Wiz from this Anastasia Brow Duo is my holy grail eyebrow product. As for skincare, this Fresh Rose Hydration Rush Ritual Set is an awesome deal. I have the cleanser, mask, and lip treatment and would recommend them. Now would also be a great time to purchase a set of Slip Silk Pillow Covers for a lower price. It’s actually on our registry! For the home, check out the rug I bought last year and love here and in this Instagram post. If I needed a rug this year, I’d go with this one.
That’s all, folks! Overall, I think the sale is sub par, but what I linked in this post and my previous sale post showcase the best of the Nordstrom Sale. Happy shopping!
