YAY!! It’s here!! Christmas!!! Okay…maybe not…but it feels like it! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (click here to access) is live to the public and I’m so excited. Like so excited! I literally stock up on gifts (these are the BEST to have on hand and so inexpensive right now!) for my husband, for my sisters, for my friends and my mom. Oh, and me. Some for me, too 😉 😉
These are the best deals! If you go to the top of my blog, you can see that I have put a “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale” tab. If you hover over it, you can see all of my tops picks in each category, including my top 11 picks because I really tried and couldn’t narrow it down to 10.
Below are some of my absolute favorites so you can see sizing information on what they look like on!
Top (I’m wearing an XS) | Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Booties (Order 1/2 size UP)
I love this top!! I’m excited to wear it tucked into a pencil skirt as well. And THESE JEANS!! I thought I didn’t like them in the store because they didn’t have my size. When I ordered them, I ordered 1 size DOWN and they are SO much better and so incredibly comfortable. I’m obsessed with the high waist! Oh, and these booties are SO versatile. I wore them 3 ways here. Ps…I have a broken toe if you haven’t seen on Instagram! Fun times 😉
Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Cardigan (wearing an XS…it runs really big!) | Tee shirt (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!)
This is probably my favorite cardigan of the sale (if I HAD to choose) and there are a LOT of amazing cardigans because it’s unreal soft. Like, are they allowed to make clothes out of butter now? I thought it would melt. I was wrong.
Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Tee shirt only $15.90 (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!)
I literally ordered this tee shirt in 4 colors because it’s only $15.90 and the PERFECT basic layering tee…or wear it by itself tee!
Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Tee shirt only $15.90 (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!) | Sneakers (true to size!)
That same $15.90 tee shirt in grey + these jeans + these sneakers are the perfect comfy outfit! These sneakers are really comfortable with great arch support. The Web site says they run big which is not true. They are true to size! Both me AND my mom got them in our normal sizes.
Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Sweater (only $24.90! Wearing an XS)
I love this sweater! It comes in multiple colors and is the perfect easy outfit to throw on and go!
Top (wearing an XS) | Jeans (order one size DOWN)
I can’t wait to wear this top tucked into a cute pencil skirt or with a cute jacket like this one thrown over it!
Jeans (order one size DOWN) | Sneakers (true to size!) | Shirt (wearing a small!)
Workout leggings (wearing a small) | Tee shirt only $15.90 (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!) | Sneakers (true to size!)
These workout leggings are SO comfortable, SO cute and such an incredible price right now!! I love this brand! Zella has the best live in leggings from this post as well.
Jeans (true to size) | Booties (order 1/2 size DOWN) | Tee shirt only $15.90 (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!)
I love these booties!! Make sure you order 1/2 size DOWN though or they will slip off of your heel. I’m wearing the color “new tornado.” These jeans are also a major favorite! I think I’ve worn them 6/7 days since I got them lol!
Workout leggings (I’m wearing a small) | Tee shirt only $15.90 (I’m wearing a small but ordered an XS because this is a little big!)
These are UNREAL comfy! I’ve had a pair for over 4 years and it still looks new, too. Yay! They are a KILLER deal right now.
Workout leggings (I’m wearing a small)
I love this color in these workout leggings! If you don’t love high waist, then these are for you. They are mid rise.
Earrings – one size fits all 😉
I LOVE these Baublebar earrings! They are lightweight (hallelujah) and really sparkly. Perfect for date night! They are SO inexpensive right now too!!!
I love these baubles! Super lightweight and eye catching. I’ll wear these for nights out with my friends or date night with Tyler. Harris and Goldie would rip these out faster than I could say, “STOP!!” 😉
Candles – $29.50 for ALL THREE!!! Such a killer deal!
I already bought two packs of these candles and I might buy more. They are the BEST gift to have on hand at only $9.83 each!! IF you buy one of these candles on their own, they are $16, and I have seen them as high as $29 in boutiques! You can get 3 for that!!! They are really high quality and beautiful, and smell amazing. The 3 scents are better than last year because I didn’t love one of the scents last year and I LOVE all 3. If you are my friend, look away, because you may be getting this in the next year 😉
I love this sunscreen and right now it is a great deal!!
I love this bracelet, and these types of bracelets that clasp like this because they fit any wrist size so they are the perfect gift!
Here are the dressing room pictures I took last week with lots of sizing info!!
My mom and I went to the Nordstrom Annivesary sale early access last week for cardholders and I’m SO glad that I did! I got the scoop for you guys in what to buy, what sizes, and what I thought I would love but ended up hating! It’s so good to see things in person sometimes and I did all the work for you so can just sit back and shop the best of the best. Click HERE to sign up for a card and if you’re approved you can shop TODAY. If you spend $100 or more today on the day you’re approved, you get $20!!!
Cardigan | Jeans | Tee ($15.90!)
These jeans are a dream. Like, really. You save $75 by ordering them now! I bought these same jeans but with ripped knees last year and I have worn them again and again and they look brand new. They are so comfortable! They are an investment that is worth the price. They run true to size; I am wearing a 27.
A couple items surprised me. I had no idea how much I would LOVE this cardigan! I would have never ordered it had I just seen it online but it was the coziest thing my mom and I have felt. It’s good quality as well. It runs big so order a size down; I got it in an XS and it is really, really big still but perfectly cozy.
I had no idea how much I would love this tee! I grabbed it to try on under cardigans and ended up getting two of them because they are only $15.90! I am wearing an XS and it’s perfect for tucking in at the front of jeans.
Jeans | Tee ($15.90!) | Cardigan ($31.90!)
I LOVED this cardigan and thought it was really flattering. It also runs big and I got an XS. It comes in 6 colors and I loved it so much that I think I might get more! I love the Burgundy color a lot. It is SUCH a good deal!
Cardigan ($31.90!) | Jeans | Tee ($15.90!)
I LOVE this cardigan! It’s such a great neutral color ands comes in black and a tan/beige color too. It runs large, I am wearing an XS. You see a theme here, right?! Nordstrom, you’re trying to make everyone feel super thin…and it’s working. Well played.
Here is the tee by itself tucked into these jeans. How cute is it?! The perfect amount of lose and fitted. Also, these jeans are only $38.90!!! YES YOU HEARD ME RIGHT! They will 100% sell out so I would snag them. I have a pair of black jeans in this same brand that I wore all winter long (and still wear) and they look brand new so they are really high quality. This brand runs large so rder 1 size DOWN. I’m wearing a 26.
This sweater is a STEAL!! And I’m not even kidding. This is one of my absolute favorite sweater brands because it is like wearing buttery soft butter. Yeah, you heard me. It’s SO SOFT and cozy and doesn’t pill. I have sweaters from last year that I paid full price for, and right now they are only $29.90!! It comes in 5 colors and I’m just saying, you might want to get it in at least 4.
Moving on to shoes!! I bought these booties last night and I CANNOT wait to wear them with a thin black skinny jean, with dresses and with skirts. They run 1/2 size small so I got a 10. Yes…call me big foot. It’s cool. This picture doesn’t do them justice. They’re a gorgeous suede and come in black. They are SO comfy!
My mom and I both got these booties!! They are so dreamy and comfortable. You wear them with a thin sock (if you choose to even wear a sock with them) because the sides go low so order 1/2 size down. I got a 9 and my mom also got a 1/2 size down. This is the perfect color because it literally goes with anything. Anything I tell you! They come in black and beige, too.
I got these sneakers thanks to an awesome girl who reads my blog! She came up to us and we started chatting, and I asked her what shoes she got, and she pointed to these which I hadn’t even noticed. I freaking love you, sister! For real, though. She was so funny and awesome. I got these in a 9.5 so they are true to size!
I LOVE these gorgeous pumps! They comes in 7 colors and they run true to size. I got these same shoes a couple years ago during the sale without the ankle strap and they have been so comfortable and still look brand new. I’m in love! I love the low heel.
I saw these sunglasses on the table and thought they looked kind of weird, and then when I tried them on, they ended up being my favorite pair of the whole sale! They have a cool mirrored-look with a flat lens that is really in style right now.
I also loved these sunglasses as well. I love the gold detail and as you can see, I felt pretty cool in them because apparently a smile was too soft for this photo.
If you order one beauty product during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, let it be this Stila eyeliner and lip gloss set! I am obsessed with this eyeliner and you get a free lip gloss with it during the sale PLUS you save $2!! I LOVE this lip gloss, too. It really does stay all day. I stock up on this!!
Okay, I have talked about this time and time again and I love it. It makes your skin silky smooth and prevents aging by removing all of the dead skin and smoothes fine lines. The PMD is a killer deal right now!
I wear these earrings literally every single day. No joke. I love them with all of my heart (okay, it’s getting late ha ha…but I stand by that). They are so sparkly and the perfect size. They’re only $29.90 right now!I also LOVE these hoops!! I have always had a pair of these and they are closet staple for me.
I LOVED this sweater. Like, absolutely loved it. I love the color and the amazing sleeves. I didn’t end up getting it though because the material is going to pill really quickly. If you think it’s worth it, go for it! But I wanted to let you know that it will be a bit high maintenance. You can use this sweater stone if you think it’s worth it! It also comes in a pretty light pink.
There were a couple items that I thought I would love but didn’t! These UGG slippers slipped off the back of my heel way too easily. Like, every time I took a step. The bottom was too stiff. If you need new slippers, get these ones. They are a DREAM and last for years because the sole is rubber so you can go to the grocery store if you really need to in them ???? And trust me, you’ll need to. #comfy

The golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto to you!
Respect others because this world is already so messed up and you can be a shining example for others.
I just have an honest comment/question – trying to understand blogger life. Did you really buy all of those items from the Nordstrom sale or were they given to you to promote? I cannot fathom how much money bloggers spend if they in fact buy all of the products. Still love you and your site and just have this curious question.
Jenica Parcell says
Hey girl! I did buy them with my own money. I make commission when others buy them which helps pay for them! 🙂
