nordstrom sale 2023: my top picks

Shop

happy nordstrom anniversary sale day to all cardholders who are ‘ambassador’ status! if you have no idea what i’m talking about, check out this blog post where i tell you everything you need to know about the nsale and which dates you can shop!

today is the first day i’m actually able to shop, but i was able to go into nordstrom last week to preview the sale and try things on from my wishlist which is what i’m sharing with y’all today! my nordstrom didn’t have a LOT of the items on my wishlist so i placed a HUGE order the second i was able to shop, and i’ll share those finds with y’all when they come in later this week.

but what i’m sharing today was my top picks from what my nordstrom had available!

some of you guys might remember i bought this sweater in a tan color last fall and wore it 24/7! i was so happy to see it included in the nsale this year in several colors. it's such a classic sweater you'll wear constantly in the fall and winter, and i love that you can wear with jeans or with leggings! i'm wearing the size XS - it runs big!

shop now 

these were probably my #1 favorite jeans from what i tried on last week! i LOVE mother jeans because the quality will last you for years, so being able to get them on sale is HUGE! these are stretchy and super comfortable (even for a pregnant person haha) and i love the fit + distressing! these fit TTS in my opinion.

shop now 

i think the western trend will continue to be huge throughout this fall and winter and i LOVE this sam edelman boot so much. i think it'll be my go to boot this fall season. i love the western detail, the pointed toe, and the heel height is perfect. i found these to run TTS

shop now 

i actually bought this same flannel in a different color last nordstrom sale and got SO much use out of it. so i'm buying again this year because i know this fall i'll want lots of loose and nursing-friendly tops. i love that it's lightweight and has such a loose, drapey, relaxed fit! this runs a little big IMO - i'm wearing the XS!

shop now 

these jeans were my top selling item last year from the nsale so i was so happy to see them included again this year! they are around $75 on the sale and the quality is SO DANG GOOD! i bought them last year and wore the heck out of them and they're still in perfect condition! these fit TTS.

shop now 

i love how a good chelsea boot adds an element of 'cool' to any outfit. this pair is under $100 during the nsale and SO comfy. i loved how they looked with both jeans and the spanx leggings!

shop now 

the perfect panama hat for all of your fall outfits and on sale for $31! comes in tons of colors and i love the wide brim!

obsessed with this speckled relaxed fit sweater and will probably get a second color. it's on sale for less than $40 and will be one of those fall sweaters you throw on daily with jeans, leggings etc! has an oversized fit (i'm wearing the XS)

i always buy a pair of the steve madden mules during nsale and this year's style is definitely my favorite i've ever bought! they are on sale for $64, come in tons of colors, and look so chic! these are perfect to pair with cropped denim like i'm wearing, and also to wear to the office! these run TTS

shop now 

y'all know how much i LOVE the madewell perfect vintage jean and i can't believe you can get them for under $100 during the sale! i love the raw hem on these jeans and they are somehow SO comfortable and so flattering all at the same time! these run a little big so if you're in between sizes i'd suggest going down a size!

shop now 

i've been wanting to find a good everyday tote that ZIPS for quite some time now and this one is perfect! i was looking for an everyday bag that would be practical for mom life / life with a newborn and i love how roomy this one is (and of course, the zipper up top!). the leather is amazing quality and i love that this is chic and practical all at the same time!

shop now 

this leather jacket is definitely one of my top purchases from the sale this year! I LOVE the removable hood and think it makes the jacket look SO cool / everyday casual. the fit is amazing as well and you can get it $100 off right now during the sale! i got a size small because i didn't want it to fit tight / wanted to be able to layer sweaters underneath it!

shop now 

such a sucker for a lightweight v neck sweater and this one is on sale for under $40! it's so soft and comes in tons of colors. perfect on its own and also great for layering. really good fall staple if you're needing some new basic sweaters! i love the drapey oversized fit!

shop now 

okay these sunglasses look SO SIMILAR to the black celine sunglasses i bought in 2017 and loved SO much but unfortunately broke last year! i was so sad when mine broke but couldn't justify buying another pair. until i saw this nearly identical pair included in the sale this year! i love the tortoise detail but it's really subtle, so you can really get away with wearing these with black or brown! the cat eye looks so chic and i think these really flatter every face shape!

shop now 

these white sneakers are on sale for less than $50 !!! and they are SO comfy! truly the perfect white sneaker to wear year round with jeans, leggings, or dresses! you will get SO much use out of these! these fit TTS!

this camel coat was probably the first thing i added to my nsale wishlist. it's a splurge but one of those pieces you will have in your wardrobe for years to come! i love that it's lightweight so you can wear it even in texas, and that it's one of those coats you can wear with ripped jeans and sneakers OR layer it over a nice dress! so classic and versatile and the quality is amazing!

i buy one of these sweaters in a different color every year during the sale and always get so much use out of it throughout fall and winter! it has the perfect oversized fit, super soft, and is a go to for e whether we're going on a date night or to a football game! it runs a little big - i'm wearing the XS!

this allsaints tote was another instant 'add to cart' for me. it's the perfect everyday tote but with an elevated + chic style! i love the tan and black color combo but it comes in a few different colors and you can get it $100 off during the nsale! love that it's not just your regular basic tote but still super practical and functional!

another western style boot from the sale i fell in love with. i love that this one is leather (vs suede) and the two tone detail is SO fun + really makes a statement! these are super comfortable and practical for everyday but spice up basic outfits all at the same time! full price this boot is $215 and you can get it for $139 during the sale!

restocked items + old favorites

This AllSaints real leather jacket is definitely an investment piece, but what better time to get it then when it's $170 OFF! I wore this 24/7 last year. A wardrobe staple that will last you years to come!

my favorite jeans from the sale last year are back this year! only $65 and so flattering!

if you don’t have a pair of spanx faux leather leggings yet…now is the time my friends! i LIVE in these in the fall and winter – you can dress them up with a nice tunic or dress them down with an oversized sweatshirt and sneakers! such a good wardrobe staple!

bought this denim jacket from the sale last year and it has hands down become my #1 favorite denim jacket. i love the subtle distressing and the oversized fit!

y’all i CANNOT BELIEVE the doona stroller is included in the nsale this year!!! i’m sure it will sell out SO fast considering it’s $140 off and such an essential for babies!! it’s basically a carseat and stroller all in one. we used this CONSTANTLY with shiloh up until she was about 18 months old. and it’s also amazing for travel because it’s your carseat and stroller all in one! worth ALL THE HYPE and more!

another one i was very surprised to see – the uppababy vista stroller, $250 off the full price!! we have LOVED this stroller over the past 4 1/2 years – shiloh still used it even when we went to disney world this fall! the quality is AMAZING and it can also become a double stroller!

we have also LOVED the doona trike, from when shiloh was about 18 months old until she was 3 1/2! you can push it from the back when they’re little, or as they get bigger they can also pedal themselves (and you’re able to still control the steering). we’ve used the heck out of ours and you can get it like $70 off right now!

okay talk about a MARATHON of a blog post haha. i can’t wait to show you guys the rest of what i ordered when it comes in this week! let me know if you grab any of these items and which one ends up being your favorite! thanks for reading!
