The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here!!! I ran over to my local Nordstrom, grabbed all my top picks and hit the dressing room for a try-on haul with all the sizing details just for you!! I will tell you my favorites this year were for sure beauty, basics, and dresses, but I’ve included the best of every category! Keep reading below for sizing details and a round up of my top pieces in each category!
: TOPS + JEANS + JACKETS :
This is hands down the very best sweater and one of the best tops in the whole Nordstrom Sale. I think it would look so sharp with some black jeans to dress it up a little bit! And the cinch sleeve detail was such a fun touch. I am wearing an xs here and loved the fit.These jeans are a favorite as well. Love the clean no distressing look. I am wearing a 2 and they fit great minus a little extra length, so I just rolled up once.
You know how I love a good button up so this was such a great find. I love the crisp classic fit and look to this one (wearing an xs) and can’t wait to dress it up with a skirt as well. And These jeans are the same as pictured above.
This outfit is probably my very favorite from the sale, made up of some amazing basics. I love a good black tee, especially one with some detail that helps to dress it up and keep it more versatile so this was a winner. The puff sleeve, and ruffle neck line elevate this one just enough. Loved the fit and it comes in a few colors. I’m wearing a small in the top. The jeans were super comfy too. I love that they flare out a little for a looser fit in the leg, but are still fitted in the bum.
Loved these jeans because that classic blue goes with everything! Wearing a size 26 here but think I could have definitely sized down. This tee was my very favorite basic tee from the whole sale. It comes in a bunch of colors and is only $24! I love the longer sleeve length and the rolled detail. Wearing an XS!
Love a good classic black jean and these were good, especially that button front detail. These are SUPER high waisted and have a TON of stretch. I am wearing a 4 here but for sure needed a 2 thanks to that stretch. I loved this basic tee as well, especially the longer sleeve length. Wearing an XS.
One thing I can always count on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to have is a great quality leather jacket. I love the buckle detail and zipper sleeve on this one. I am wearing a size 2 here, but if you plan on layering at all I would size up.
These two are such great staple pieces to have in your closet. The jeans are a great fit and I loved the distressing on them. I am wearing a size 4. The top is super light weight (a touch see through) and would be great for layering. Wearing a small.
I love a good army style jacket ever since I snagged one at the Nordstrom Sale a few years ago. This one was more oversized which I really loved! Comes in black and this olive color. Wearing an XS. And these shoes!! My favorite find! Wearing an 8.
This top was definitely at the higher end of my price range, but I absolutely LOVE it!! Such a good staple sweatshirt with a fun twist. Wearing an XS here and can’t wait to wear it this fall/winter!

: DRESSES :
One category that really stood out to me in the Nordstrom Sale this year was dresses! I thought they had super cute options this year! This one was a favorite and I am wearing a size small. I loved the smocked waist to show off your waist line! The sleeves are my favorite part and I love that you can scrunch them up when its warmer.
I have been eyeing this dress and it is so good! The v-neck has a clasp so it wont show anything you don’t want to. I am wearing a small here, but I ordered a medium as well to see if I could get some more length.
Another great dress from the sale is this cute sweater option! Loved that the slits are not too high, although the v-neck was a tad on the low side. The tie detail was a fun touch, especially that you can tie it in the front or back. Wearing a size 1.
I didn’t end up getting this one, but loved the sleeve detail and subtle print. I am wearing a small but needed an xs.

: FITNESS :
The fitness category wasn’t my favorite in the Nordstrom Sale this year, but I was thrilled to see some IVL. I have a few IVL pieces and absolutely love them and the amazing quality. The scallop detail on this bra and leggings is my favorite! I am wearing a size 4 in both the top + bottom, but would prefer a 2 in the bottom. I also love this rainbow bra + leggings set.
These Nike shorts were so so cute, I grabbed a few pairs for Hunter. They have a drawstring waist band as well as the underwear liner. I’ve been wanting to try these shoes for a while but didn’t want to go with the price tag. With the sale they are now just over $100. They are super comfortable and light weight, but I recommend sizing down a 1/2 size. I normally wear an 8 and got a 7.5.

: SHOES :
My store didn’t have a lot of the shoes this year, but I found a few I loved. I’m obsessed with these Nike’s and have a few pair of Adidas similar to these so I grabbed both pair. I also ordered a few of the boots below.

: LOUNGEWEAR :
These sweat sets are another thing I look forward to every year. They are SO comfortable an always come in the funnest patterns. My store didn’t have the matching top but I got an XS in the bottoms and ordered the top in that size as well. They are so comfortable and wash up really well.
pajamas (this years options)
This pic is from last year, but they have this same pajama set every year and my mom, sisters, and I always grab a pair!! You will love how comfy they are!!

: BEST OF BEAUTY :
Beauty is HANDS DOWN the very best part of the sale this year!! So many of my tried + true faves are included this year. From my go to hair tools, to the number one in tanning and skincare, I’ve highlighted all the best of below!
: T3 + OLAPLEX
T3 makes some of the very best hair tools, hands down. The curling iron + flat iron are made of ceramic so it is WAY better for and softer on your hair. Honestly, I’ve had mine + the blow dryer for over 5 years and I will not do my hair with any other tool because I’ve seen the biggest difference in my hair. Olaplex is as good as you can get when it comes to strengthening and reducing breakage in your hair. This kit is one of my favorites and one I highly recommend.
: PMD + BEAUTY BIO
This microneedling tool from Beauty Bio and this PMD Microderm are my top two face tools. I’ve shared about both for years and have seen a huge difference in my skin. Both are worth every single penny! Hunter uses the PMD clean every day and it is a great option too, especially for teens.
: ST TROPEZ
The st. tropez tanner is hands down my favorite tanner I have found. It gives such a good, dark, quality color while still looking very natural. No orange oompa loompa look here! It is also a mousse rather than a lotion, so it goes on relatively easy, isn’t streaky, and you can easily see where you are applying it as you go.
You all know my love for Tula Skincare, especially their kits! This kit is exclusive to the Nordstrom Sale and full of some of my very favorites! The best face wash ever, the 24/7 moisutrizer, and the rose glow eye balm. Makes an amazing gift or worth stocking up on for yourself too!
: DONNA KAREN DEODORANT
I heard about this deodorant from my friend Lisa a few years ago. She said I had to try it and I’ve never turned back. I buy this 3 pack every year and it lasts me until the sale the next year. Amazing quality and it smells amazing!!
: SLIP HAIR TIES
I have heard so many good things about the slip hair ties. I do think they are a bit pricey so I was thrilled to see they are part of the sale so I could finally try them at a more affordable price. They would make a great Christmas gift as well!

: HOME :
The home category was pretty blah for me this year, but if you don’t already have this vacuum do not miss this deal!!! It is the best I’ve ever had and I promise you will love it!
. . . HOME FAVORITES . . .
Last but not least is Nordstrom kids finds. I am just linking what I actually got for my little people. I tried to buy just what they needed this year, which wasn’t a lot.
