Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks
Chili-Lime Flank Steak Salad
My friend Caroline asked me if I was interested in going to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with her last week and I said sure! I had never been before, but I’ve heard plenty about it online, and she’s an annual attendee. We planned to go the day that the sale launched, but her husband was under the weather, so we just went last night!
I went into it really open minded, with nothing specifically on my mind to look for, and I was completely surprised to find really great deals on some of my favorite things from brands that I love and know well.
You may remember this post in which I professed my love to the brand AG. I’m a big advocate of investing in quality pieces that you wear constantly, and going cheaper on items that don’t get as much wear. I got a distressed pair last night for a good price, considering AG’s normal price tag.
The booties are adorable. I was drawn to the grey shade but Caroline and I agreed the lighter taupe shade was better and looked less “clunky”.
I love Zella lived-in leggings (which are also on sale but I already have 2 pairs!), and this zip up hoodie is super thin, light, and fits great. The climate here is warm for the better part of the year, so this is a great weight for warm fall and spring days.
I saw the high-neck swimsuit hanging on a wall and thought about just walking past it, but I grabbed it and ultimately it became the best find of the night! The high-neck is basically a requirement for me when it comes to swimsuits, and this fit like a dream.
The black top is versatile and stretchy. I love the look of tops like that but they always seem to be in a zero-stretch fabric like a blouse. This is comfortable, stretchy, and long so I’m sure I’ll wear it a ton this winter. I sized down to an XS because it runs a little large.
If you’ve never been before, here is a quick explanation. Currently you can have access to the sale if you are a cardholder, of which I am not hence the reason I went with my friend who IS a cardholder. You can only buy things at the sale price tag with a Nordstrom card. If you don’t have or want a card, the sale is available for anyone starting on 7/22!
