Fave picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (+ what’s in my cart)

Hi friends! Happy Thursday and Happy Birthday to my wonderful, amazing nana who still reads the blog after all of these years. I’m so excited to celebrate with her today!

It’s officially one of the most wonderful times of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE. This is the ideal time to stock up on brand new clothes, activewear, shoes, and accessories as we head into the fall. I also use it as a great chance to order some clothes and shoes for the kiddos since school is starting soon!

I love the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is because it’s all new pieces you get at a discount before they jump up to full price. It’s like an early sale and the pieces I buy from this sale each year become my staple pieces for fall and winter.

For today, I thought I’d share some of my fave finds from the sale – it can be kind of overwhelming to go through everything! – and what’s in my personal shopping cart (denoted with an asterisk below).

Top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

    I’ve been eyeing the Zella leggings for awhile now and decided to buy some during the Anniversary sale. I am not sure between a small and medium though. What size do you order? Thanks!

      They’re true to size and fit amazingly! I wear a small. You’ll love them

    Thanks for the recommendations! They have lots of good stuff. Do you have those booties? They’re really cute but I’m always concerned about comfort.

    • Fitnessista on July 19, 2018 at 12:13 pm
