#NSale: what will sell out the fastest!

Okay, did we all survive day one of the #NSale? Not gonna lie, I barely did haha. Such an exciting time, but also involves lots of work and very little sleep! Not complaining though – one of my favorite times of the year.

So yesterday I shared my personal top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Today I want to share something similar but not quite as personal. Today I’m sharing the Nordstrom Anniversary sale “hot” items this year. I spoke with a stylist at Nordstrom and she told me which items they’re expecting to fly off the shelves (if they haven’t already)…so I put this post together with her knowledge, and then my experience with the Nordstrom sale from the past 3 years.

I’m predicting the items I’m sharing with y’all today to be sold out within the next day or two (if they’re not already!), so if you’ve been eyeing them, I suggest buying now. [I already missed out on this adorable rag & bone purse because I didn’t order right away!].

Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Cardigan | Rails Military Jacket | Rails Plaid Shirt | Slim Boyfriend Jeans | Suede Moto Jacket | Shawl Collar Cashmere Cardigan | Barefoot Dreams Cardigan | Patagonia Pullover | Camel Vest | Faux Leather Leggings | Darlington Flats | Weatherproof Booties | Nike Kicks | Fleece Pullover | Slouch Boots


The first item I want to talk about is this barefoot dreams cardigan. Barefoot dreams always sells out SO fast every single NSale and I know how disappointing that can be! I have a few barefoot dreams cardigan (also have and love this style) and I live in them year round. Literally even during the summer I wear them inside with my pj’s haha. The one i’m wearing above is in the ‘almond color’ and the softest thing you will ever wear. [The pj’s are also included in the #NSale. I am too ashamed to admit how many colors I have in these now!]

I already talked extensively about this Rails Military Jacket in yesterday’s blog post and on stories, so I won’t go into more detail about how amazing it is. But, camo is such a huge trend right now and this is the perfect weight jacket…so I think it won’t last for another day or so!


These Stuart Weitzman slouch boots are on my wishlist, and I have a feeling that by time I’m ready to pull the trigger, they will be gone! When I shopped early on Wednesday, the store I was in already only had one size 8 left. And that’s before early access even started! BTW I tried them on and they are so beautiful. *Hint hint, Christmas present, Michael!*

Okay first of all, just look at the amazing reviews on these faux leather leggings! Those reviews don’t lie. I also own these leggings and completely agree that they are magical. These are a major fall and winter staple and I know they will sell QUICK with this amazing price (just under $65!). Definitely a great purchase, if you’ve been debating.

I have heard amazing things about these Aquatalia weatherproof booties. If you live somewhere like Colorado or the city where you do a lot of walking and your boots get really worn down, these would be a great purchase for you. Aquatalia is one of those brands people swear by, so I suspect these will also be sold out within the next few days!


This suede jacket is definitely one of my favorite purchases and every year, the BlankNYC jackets sell out so fast! I’m wearing a size small for reference! [The necklace is also included in the #NSale!]


Rails plaid shirts are always such a huge hit and they sell out in the good colors quick. So if this has been a wishlist item for you, get it now while you can!

Cashmere is also a huge hit during the Nordstrom sale because you cannot beat these prices! The cashmere vest I posted last year during the #NSale sold out within two days, and I think this one will too!

Lastly, how amazing are these AG ‘ex-boyfriend’ jeans? I love the fit because they are loose but still slimming and feminine. They’re so soft and comfortable too! I think these will be another ‘hot’ item during this year’s sale!

What have been some of your favorite purchases so far?! Share in the comments below!
