Happy happy Monday everyone! Can you believe that we are already in the midst of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?! If you’ve been following along with me on my insta stories from this past weekend then you know I’ve been checking out some of the best N-sale options. But first, a lot of you have been asking me some important questions like what is the sale, how long does it last, etc. and I want to answer them first before we dive in!

What is it? – The big kahuna of sales! While most sales that happen in stores focus on old merchandise being marked down to make room for new merchandise, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale offers shoppers brand new arrivals (both summer and fall included).

How long does the sale last? – Early access started on July 12th and will end THIS THURSDAY July 19th. Public access will start on Friday July 20th and end on Sunday August 5th.

What’s the difference between early access and public access? – Early access is open for those who have a Nordstrom card. Obviously the immediate perk of having this card is that you get to shop the sale before it opens to the public, and things sell out FAST, so having first dibs on items is a major plus! Some other perks include earning 2 points for every dollar spent + a $40 bonus note when you make your first purchase.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale features a diverse list of brands like adidas, Alice + Olivia, Rails, and much more ranging from fashion and beauty to men’s and to tech! This past weekend I did a try on haul focused solely on women’s clothing, but you can view ALL of my Nordstrom Sale favorites (including shoes, beauty, accessories, and bottoms) HERE!

So let’s get started! (P.S. EVERYTHING is linked at the bottom of this blog post!)

I couldn’t resist this WAYF Lace-Up Ruffle Cami! It comes in 3 different colors – green bug, black, and purple moss. You can dress it up or down as well as wear it now and into the fall! During the sale it’s $38.90 and after the sale the price will go up to $59. I’m wearing a size XS (I have a small chest) and it fits perfectly!



This Billabong Knot Front Top is ideal for this time of year! I love the boho chic vibes and I can just see myself wearing it on vacation! During the sale it’s $32.90 and after the sale it’s $49.95.


Next I tried on this O’Neill Sims Stripe Sweater. The neckline is super flattering, and the soft bell sleeves add such a fun touch! Not to mention it’s extremely lightweight and perfect to wear on cool summer/fall nights! During the sale it’s $38.90 and after the sale the price will go up to $59.50.

I think every one of us girls needs this Rebecca Minkoff Superwoman shirt in our closets! It’s the perfect reminder that we can do anything! During the sale it’s $37.90 and after the sale it’s $58. I styled this comfy top with this Topshop Long Open Front Cardi in dark green (it also comes in charcoal). It’s the best cozy layering piece come fall! During the sale it’s $49.90 and after the sale it’s $75.

This next top is by Current/Elliot. I love the message on it just as much as I love the one on the Superwoman tee! During the sale it’s $84.90 and after the sale it’s $128. It’s made out of pure cotton and well worth the sale price! I layered this BLANKNYC Cloud Nine Drape Jacket over it. It comes in 3 different colors – black, merlot, and Mt. Rushmore. I snagged the black because it’s such a classic. If you were to purchase anything from the sale, I honestly think this jacket should be it. BLANKNYC is a staple in my closet, and this jacket during the sale is just $59.90 (basically unheard of) and after the sale it will go up to $90.

This Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt comes in 6, yes 6, different colors. It’s one of the softest button downs I’ve ever tried on, I honestly might go back to get it in a few different colors – that’s how much I love it! During the sale it’s $104.90 and after the sale it’s $158. If you’re looking for a piece that you can wear literally year round, this one is it! I styled it with this Hinge Feminine Leather Moto Jacket in brown chestnut (it also comes in beige morn). During the sale it’s $199 and after the sale it will go back up to $299.

Next I tried on this Free People Found My Friend Sweater. I’m always an XS whenever I wear Free People, but I pictured wearing this specific sweater with layers and decided to size up. So, before I even tried it on as a separate piece, I just threw it over the Rails button down pictured up above!

I mean, how cute do these look together?! AND this sweater comes in six different colors! During the sale it’s just $51.90 (which is honestly a steal when it comes to Free People anything) and after it will go back up to $78. The baggy balloon sleeves and slouchy fit are both laid-back and adorable all at the same time!

Next I tried on this Goal Digger Sweatshirt by Project Social T. Not only is it punny, it’s encouraging AND one of the comfiest sweatshirts I’ve ever worn! The fleece material on the inside is so cozy – I can just see myself wearing it as I study in the fall! During the sale it’s just $25.90 and after the sale it goes up to $39!

I love anything with a colorblock design, so I had to grab this BP Mock Neck Colorblock Sweater! The red just screams fall, and it also comes in a brown colorblock as well. It’s cozy and comfortable! During the sale it’s just $31.90 and after it’s $49. I would definitely run to grab this one!

Another sweater I just had to try was this BP Balloon Sleeve Sweater! It’s the same pricing as the colorblock one up above – just $31.90 during the sale and $49 after. This slouchy sweater is just as cozy as it is fashionable. I couldn’t resist! It comes in 3 different colors as well – pink rose, ivory, and green golf.

Last but not least I had to snag this Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover. I’ve had my eyes on it for almost a year now and the sale price was too good to pass up – $51.90 now and $78 once the sale ends. Although the website says this piece typically runs large, I still went with the size M. It was roomy but didn’t swallow me and I felt like the size was perfect! It also comes in 4 different colors – charcoal, charcoal/ivory, ivory, and olive.
