Top Clothing Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

3 random things

On Thursday my sister and I met my friend Caroline at Nordstrom to shop the first day of the sale for cardholders. It was fun to shop together, and it’s kind of become a tradition for Caroline and I to shop the sale every year!

Overall, I think the store closest to me didn’t have a super wide variety, but there were a few things I picked up while I was there. The next day my sister and I both did a decent amount of online shopping and we kept finding items online that were really great finds!

Between this year and two years ago, I think two years ago had a better selection. I didn’t really shop much at the last sale because it was right at my sister’s wedding time. I found a few wardrobe staples this year, which is what I wear the most of–neutral, easy to wear, comfortable clothes, so I thought I’d share a few of my top picks below!

From top left: perforated grey booties, lilac t-shirtAG denim, , stripe tee, Next row: drape collar coatPaige denim, hooded cardigan, pink bag, bra, white sneakers, Last row: grey tunic,taupe/grey booties, sunglasses

This past winter I realized I needed some good snow boots for a few trips to NYC that I had scheduled. I bought some Sorel brand ones but they weren’t very comfortable so I returned them. I hope these Sperry ones are comfortable because they look warm and cozy.

The Natori Feathers bra is seriously fantastic. I once heard it described as all the lift without the push and that is totally true. My favorite nursing bra is by Natori, but if you are looking for a regular bra that is comfortable and provides great support, this one is a must try.

This jacket was one of the greatest finds when I was shopping in store. It’s so comfortable, feels like a sweater but has nice structure to it, and is the perfect weight for a North Carolina winter.

I’ve got my eye on this grey hooded cardigan but it keeps selling out in the color I want! It looks perfect for fall.

I already have a pair of white Vince slip on sneakers that I’ve been wearing (and loving) for years, but here is another option that looks cool and comfortable.

I also grabbed these easy slip on’s while I was in store. Caroline and Lauren were RAGGING on me because they sound like a shoe for a grandmother or something. The name is “gentle souls” . . . I tried them anyway and really liked them. And it turns out Caroline even started to consider them for herself once she saw how cute they were.

This is not a part of the sale but I met a sweet blog follower at Nordstrom that was wearing this top and it was so cute I had to buy it for myself!

It’s been a busy and full weekend with my sister in town, in the best of ways! I’ll hop on Instastories when I can to talk through a few of my purchases, AND round up some beauty picks in a post for next week!

Did you shop the sale? What was your favorite find? 

P.S. The sale is available for cardholders until the 19th, then opens to EVERYONE on July 20th!

Since Nordstrom has only been in Canada for two years, the N sale hasn’t become an exciting deal like it does in the US. I’m looking at your picks and it honestly has me so excited that Nordstrom is finally here in Canada. I love the sneakers, they look so comfortable!

What were the kind of undies that are your favorite from Nordstrom … I think that’s where you said they were from. You had them in your cart then they sold out before you could get them!

Sloggi is the brand 🙂
