The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went live at 3 am last night. I slept right through that but hopped online this morning to round up some not-to-miss sale items. I always like to ask myself if it’s something I’d buy full price. If the answer is yes, I go for it. Otherwise, it’s worth waiting just to make sure you don’t buy something you don’t want or need.
As far as the sale goes, things will “sell out.” (They’ll come back full price when the season starts.) There might be some restocking here and there as returns come in, but generally speaking, if you want something really badly, don’t wait! If you’re unsure on sizing, order both (if you can), so you can return the one that doesn’t fit and ensure you have a size that will.
Here are my top recommendations:
TORY BURCH RIDING BOOTS // These are always the #1 seller from my anniversary posts. I bought a pair during the 2008 anniversary sale and still wear them. Love ’em, highly recommend.
BARBOUR RAIN JACKET // This is the one item that’s tempting me the most. I love the color of this rain jacket and the hint of floral with the lining. (Also recommend the quilted hooded jacket too.)
MY FAVORITE BRA // I think that this bra is hands down the best deal of the sale, to be honest. It’s an incredible deal and something you’d buy anyway. I think I have a total of six colors right now… and I might just have to get a few more at this price.
PATAGONIA PARKA // I know we’re in a heatwave, but you will be GLAD you have this when it’s freezing this winter. This is a great purchase if you’re heading off to school or starting a new job somewhere in the north. (Moms, this is a perfect Christmas gift to squirrel away for December!)
Speaking of Patagonia, if you have a guy in your life (brother, dad, boyfriend, best friend) this Snap-T Pullover is a steal!
CLARISONIC // I’m obsessed with my Clarisonic and can notice a major difference in my skin when I use it consistently. If this has been on your wishlist, now may be the best time to go for it. A brush head set is also included in the sale too if you need to restock.
T3 HAIRDRYER // THE HAIRDRYER I USE IS IN THE SALE! I bought mine full priced at Sephora, but the guy who sold it to me pitched it as an incredible blow dryer… and it’s been amazing.
And what am I buying? Not very exciting, but I need to buy a new rug. I’ve had it professionally cleaned twice, but it’s officially seen better days. I was excited to see it included in the sale!
