nordstrom sale public access: my top picks!

Shop

today is the day that the nordstrom anniversary sale opens up to EVERYONE – cardholders and non-cardholders! i shared tons of favorites last week on my instagram so make sure to check out my #nsale highlight for some try on videos AND my nsale collection in the LTK app to shop some of my favorite looks!

i placed a big order the second i was able to shop on july 11 bc my local nordstrom didn’t have a lot of the stuff i wanted in store. so today i wanted to share with you guys my favorite items from that order (most of which are in stock as i write this post but of course…will sell out quickly, i’m sure!)

nordstrom sale: favorites

you can click any product in the collage below to shop!

the softest, drapiest flannel shirt you can truly wear year round! comes in a few colors and i love wearing mine as a shirt OR with a body suit underneath and leaving the buttons open! i'm wearing the size small and would say it has an oversized fit.

shop now 

 

probably my favorite jeans from the sale! the denim material is SO soft and i love that they have a relaxed boyfriend fit without being TOO baggy! these fit TTS.

shop now 

 

these under $50 white sneakers are INSANELY comfortable and so versatile! you'll see throughout this post that i wear them with everything from jeans to leggings to dresses! such a great price for something you'll get a ton of use out of!

shop now 

 

 

 

this topshop long cardigan is so soft and I'm in love with the longer length! It's perfect to layer over maxi dresses in the fall or wear with denim and booties. It comes in a few colors, but I picked the cream because it can basically be thrown on over any look! and the best part is it's only $59 right now!

shop now 

 

one of my favorite pair of boots from the sale! i love the two-tone color and the western detail! they have a pointed toe and the perfect heel height and i know i will get a ton of use out of these this fall!

shop now 

 

i buy a rails shirt from the nordstrom sale every few years because they make the BEST quality shirts...but they aren't cheap. so i love getting them on sale and then being able to wear them for YEARS because the quality is so good. i love the pink color combo of this one! and it's lightweight enough to also wear in the spring and summer as well! has an oversized fit to it - i'm wearing the xs.

shop now 

 

i've been on the hunt for a good leather (or faux leather) blazer for a while now and fell in LOVE with this one...and with the fact that it's on sale for under $70! it comes in a few colors and i love the slightly oversized fit to it! i think this blazer is so cool because you can pair it with ripped jeans OR dress it up for the office! this fits TTS.

shop now 

 

another denim favorite from the sale. the madewell perfect vintage jean has been a LONG time favorite of mine and i love this black pair with a raw hem. SO flattering, so comfortable, and amazing quality for under $90!

shop now 

 

obsessed with these loafers for fall and ended up buying in two colors because the price is so good and they are super versatile! i love how they look with semi-cropped jeans or boyfriend jeans. these run TTS.

shop now 

 

love the color and marled texture of this long cardigan! one of those cardigans you can throw on over a dress in the fall, with leggings, or with denim! so comfy and comes in a few colors!

shop now 

i thought these boots were a little strange when i first saw them...and then i tried them on and fell in LOVE! the platform actually makes them SO comfortable and i love the black and brown color combo! i was shocked how cute they looked with both jeans and dresses!

shop now 

 

 

one of the first things i bought during anniversary sale because i knew it would sell out and i LOVE it so much. hoping they restock it which is why i'm including my review here...because it is WORTH the splurge. you can really wear it as both a coat AND a cardigan and the quality is SO good so this purchase will last you for years to come! insanely soft and cozy and i know i'll get so much use out of it!

shop now 

 

one of my favorite sweaters from the sale and under $50! i loved this sweater so much i bought in two colors. i sized up so that i could wear it with both jeans and leggings and truly love how it looks with both! the mock neck isn't too tight or suffocating haha and the material of the sweater is SO soft!

shop now 

 

frame is one of my favorite brand of jeans and i'm keeping my fingers crossed they restock this pair. i love the raw hem and the light wash! these fit TTS.

shop now

if you don't have a pair of spanx faux leather leggings yet...trust me when i say, you NEED them. one of my most worn items throughout fall and winter for like 5 years now. they are so flattering and so versatile and on sale for under $65!!

shop now 

 

i LOVE a good lug sole boot paired with leggings or denim in the fall and this pair is SUCH a good price! i also love that they aren't TOO clunky or heavy and they are SO comfortable!

shop now

truly the most perfect, coziest oversized sweater to wear with denim in the fall and winter. i love the expoed seam detail and relaxed fit. i know this is one of those sweaters i'll be reaching for over and over again this fall season! i'm wearing the size small!

shop now 

 

a top denim pick for me from the sale this year and last year and they are under $70!! such a flattering fit and levis makes SUCH quality denim for such a good price! these fit TTS.

shop now 

 

my other favorite pair of boots from the sale! the western detail is subtle but i still love what it adds to the boot! they are so versatile, so comfortable, and great quality (and the heel isn't too high either).

shop now 

 

PIN IT

the nsale purchase you didn't know you needed...until you try them ON! i haven't been the biggest fan of cargo pants but this pair is like a soft denim material and SO comfortable and SO flattering! i feel like you can really dress these up or down and wear them year round! these fit TTS.

shop now 

 

i LOVE how lightweight this blazer is and the slightly longer silhouette! one of those purchases you will enjoy for years to come - pairing with dresses, ripped jeans, or slacks for the office! so classic yet so cool all at the same time!

shop now 

 

these boots are SO beautiful and i feel like a good black leather boot is so hard to find! i love these because i feel like they can be slightly dressed up vs just a suede boot. these fit a little small IMO - i'd suggest going up half a size!

shop now 

 

i LOVE this dress both for pregnancy AND not pregnancy haha. i struggle to find like 'date night' type of outfits in the fall that's more creative than jeans and a sweater and this dress is truly perfect! it's flattering yet comfortable and you can wear it with or without the sweater on top! comes in a few colors but i loved the white with the black boot (and the white isn't see through at all).

shop now 

 

this sweater is a splurge but definitely my #1 favorite sweater from the sale. it is SO insanely soft and i love the oversized slouchy fit. it's a cashmere blend so not only is it the softest thing ever but it'll also last you for years and years to come. it's also big enough to pair with both jeans and leggings! i'm wearing the size small (sized up for a more oversized fit).

shop now 

 

love the frayed edge on this classic sweater! such an easy to piece to style a million different ways, dress up with statement jewelry, or just wear casual with jeans and boots for everyday. such great quality and something you'll have in your closet for years to come.

shop now 

 

definitely my favorite bag from the sale! i love this tan and black color combo and that it looks just a little bit more elevated than your everyday basic tote...but it's still very functional + practical!

shop now

this dress was an easy buy for me - under $40 and something i can wear now in the summer (and pregnant) and also transition it to the fall! it's a minidress but not TOO short (although if you are taller than 5'7 it'd definitely be on the short side haha). wearing size small.

shop now 

 

one of my favorite purchases from the nsale last year that i have worn COUNTLESS times over the past year! i love the slight distressing and the oversized fit! i'm wearing the size small!

shop now 

 

one of the only maternity items i have bought this pregnancy and i LOVE them so much! under $50, insanely soft and they DON'T slide down on me which is huge! i don't personally workout in them but they're perfect for everyday, lounging, athleisure outfits, and traveling!

shop now 

 

 

PIN IT

loved this free people top so much i bought it in two colors! the perfect long sleeve tee to pair with any of your bike shorts or leggings or loungewear. i love the thumbholes and the fit of this tee!

shop now 

 

these shorts are SO dang cozy that after i got this pair in, i immediately ordered a second color! i love the fit of them and think they're also really flattering - and i love the length - not too long or too short.

shop now 

 

the perfect everyday summer short whether you are taking your kid to the park, going for a hike, or running errands! they're a really good length and on sale for under $40

shop now 

 

these sneakers are SO comfy and under $100! super lightweight and come in a few colors and perfect for pairing with any athleisure outfit! i suggest going down half a size in these.

shop now

i buy a pair of these almost every single nsale because they are less than $60 and so lightweight + comfy. also make for such a good gift if you wanna start buying christmas gifts now! these fit TTS.

shop now 

barefoot dreams robes are always the BEST to purchase during the nsale because they're at a major discount and they'll last you for years! I also love to get these as gifts for my mom, sisters or friends because who doesn't love putting on a super soft robe in the morning, especially in the fall in winter! this one is the shorter length and i love the fit!

shop now 

probably my favorite ugg slippers that have ever been included in the nsale! i love the platform on them and they come in tons of colors! they're on sale for $74 so i feel like these would also make for a great gift!

shop now 

 

all of the photos below are from my first nsale blog post and i wrote detailed reviews about each item. some of these items are sold out now but wanted to share anyway in case they restock! but you can check out this post for more detailed information about each item!
