Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 picks

Sharing my favorite picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + must-haves for fall!

I know, I know. Things have already felt a little bit overboard with the sale this year. I just feel like everyone online has been shouting it from the rooftops, but here’s the thing, those without a credit card couldn’t even shop the sale until today! I feel like there’s a lot to be excited about, but it can also be tricky to sort through the sale for things you really love and need. The Nordstrom site can be a bit overwhelming – I usually do much better if I know exactly what I’m looking for – and I scoured through the sale items to find the best of the best in a reasonable price range. (No $1200 coats here.)

What I love the Anniversary Sale so much:

This is the only time to get new products for fall and winter at an amazing discount. The prices are better than Black Friday! While it is a liiiiittle weird so buy jeans and sweaters when it’s sweltering hot, so many of these items are staples that I end up using for years. Most of my favorite boots, sweaters, and jeans have all been anniversary sale products. 

I can stock up on back-to-school gear for the kiddos. I LOVE Nordstrom clothes for the girls, but will usually shop at Nordstrom Rack because the prices are better (and they grow so dang fast!). With the anniversary sale, I’m getting products I love even more for about the same price. While I feel like the kids’ clothes selection is hit or miss, this sale is especially incredible for kids’ shoes. I’ll often get them a couple of pairs or sneakers to start the school year. (Last year I ended up getting them both Ugg boots during the fall and paying full price, but it was worth it because they wore them all winter. I might order this year’s pairs during the Anniversary Sale in a size bigger than their current size so we’re not paying full price again.) I’ll also get their North Face or Patagonia coats for the upcoming winter during this sale.

It’s perfect for stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts! I won’t go crazy with this one, but I can usually get some super cute bracelets, pendants, or stud earrings that make perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for that one person who’s a little tricky to holiday shop for.

My favorite picks from 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

Dresses and jumpsuits:

I ordered this dress and can’t wait to wear it with sandals, and later this fall, with booties and a sweater.

This cropped jumpsuit is so cute.

Love this dress for any special occasion.

Floral is huge for fall, and I love the cut and colors of this dress.

Love the belted waist of this dress (in red!).


Tops and sweaters:

Everyday v-neck tee for $12.

This Rails tee with little kisses.

This lace-trimmed camisole is giving me 90s vibes in the best way.

The softest, dreamiest cardigan.

An everyday v-neck sweater (in bright pink!).

I ordered this sweater before it sold out, but hopefully they’ll restock.

Love this wrap top.

Wrap top


AG jeans. These are $75 off! AG is one of my favorite denim brands because they fit extremely well and the fabric is so soft. 

FRAME high-waist skinny jeans with a destroyed detail. 

Rag & bone skinny jeans. (<— I find that they run small, so size up!)

Shoes and boots:

I ordered these Ugg low-top sneakers to wear with jeans and casual dresses (in dusk suede). The color is gorgeous and my normal size fit perfectly.

Glossy black Hunter boots for $100.

Classic block heels in so many colors.

Cole Haan low-top sneakers. I’ve had these ones for a while and wear them ALL the time!

Love the plunge top on these booties!

Knee-high suede boots that are WATERPROOF.

Pajamas, lingerie, loungewear:

This is my favorite bra on the entire planet. I hate wires, so this one gives you a nice shape (I need all the help I can get lol) without digging into you. It’s perfect under t-shirts, too. Just ordered two more.

Cute joggers for $26.

This robe would make an awesome xmas gift!

The BEST pajamas. SO comfy and soft. They also have the shorts version here.

Handbags and accessories:

This mini Tory Burch leather crossbody. 

A gorgeous spinner luggage set.

Casual fanny pack. 

This amazing leather tote is $150 off.

Love these delicate initial pendant necklaces.

These pendants are only $25 and look way more expensive. Ordering a couple for gifts!

For the kiddos:

Mini Melissa princess shoes.

Because all hoodies should have ears.

Little Hunter Boots!

I ordered this panda dress for P. 🙂 

These are the girls’ back to school shoes and they’re perfect! Reviews said they run a little bit, so I ordered their current sizes and they have some room to grow.

North Face jackets!

* Some of the items above are out of stock, but they often restock during the sale. I’m going to keep lurking the ones I missed, like this sweater!

Items I’ve purchase from previous Anniversary Sales that are back again:

Rails plaid shirt. I have three of these and loooove them. They’re classic and perfect with jeans, leggings, or to tie around your waist.

The Wubby sweater! The one we saw everyone wearing last year that makes you look a bit like a cozy teddybear. 9I’m probably going to get a grey one)

Spanx faux leather leggings. I wore these nonstop last year. I love that the texture gives them a little extra something special without being *too much* and they’re so.insanely.flattering.

The famous Leith dress. I have three of these and wear them all the time! They’re so easy to dress up or down.

The best throw blanket to ever exist.

AG skinny jeans. They’re so well-made and the fabric is dreamy soft and stretchy.

Kid’s North Face Jackets. The girls live in these all winter! Last time, I accidentally bought them a little big, but they ended up lasting them for two winters.

Because the fitness gear is so great, I’ll be doing a full post next week with some fitness faves. (I will say that these leggings are a must-have!)

So, tell me friends: are you shopping the anniversary sale? What’s your favorite product on the list above?

    Every year I tell myself to resist the Nordstrom sale, and EVERY DAMN YEAR I give in because the deals are too good and I love fall/winter fashion and Nordstrom is the best store ever. Lol.

    I’m definitely loving that wrap top! And I’ll probably do some Christmas shopping for my nieces and nephews. I’m looking forward to your fitness one next week!
