The BEST Sale of the Year is Here!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Open to the Public!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Finally! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open the public! I’ve written six posts so far to help you shop the best sale of the year. Today I’ve rounded up my absolute must-have items that are in stock as at the time of publication as well as some of my sale purchases so far. (My outfits are clickable above.)

Shop the Post:


Barbour Coats

Barbour coats rarely go on sale. I have two: A waxed jacket that is very similar to the one Kate Middleton wears on holiday. It is $265 but will be $399 after the sale. And a puffy jacket similar to this one sale that I wear almost everyday in the winter. This  black color is currently is stock in all sizes! I like it because it’s not a jet black. It’s a soft black that could almost pass as navy. Very versatile! And if you are between sizes go up a size because they tend to run slim. Also, don’t forget they have men’s Barbour coats in the sale. Think: Christmas gift!

zella leggings

The Most Top Rated Leggings

These leggings rarely go on sale but right now you can get for $35.90 (reg. $54). Just look at the reviews. My mom ordered some because I talk about them so much. They fit true to size. Wear to work out with a Zella top similar to mine or on a lazy Saturday with a big cozy sweatshirt or barefoot dreams cardigan. (Shoes are Sketchers but there are some similar Nikes in the sale.)

Tory Burch shoes and bags

*** Alert! The Tory Burch crossbody wallet bag has been restocked in all colors, including the popular camel color. (But probably not for long!) It’s a great time to buy Tory’s classic flats ($164 \ $248) or riding boots ($349.90/$578) These will sell fast today.

This Thread and Supply pullover keeps going in and out of stock. Grab one if you can – you won’t regret it come fall!

nest candle sale

Luxury Candles

Stock up your gift closet in the #NSale. This NEST candle set ($52) are an $80 value. And there is also a pretty NEST diffuser set which is great for guest bathrooms. And so many of y’all stocked up on these Voluspa sets for Christmas teacher gifts. Both the mini Voluspa set ($15.90/$24) and large Voluspa set ($29.90/$48) are part of the sale!  This mini Diptyque set will probably sell out fast now that the sale is open to the public.


There are so many great booties in the sale. I bought these Vince Camuto booties last year and still wear all year long. There is an updated version in the sale.

My mom bought these cute Ugg booties in the sale and they are right now in stock in all sizes. She said she liked them because they didn’t look like teenage Uggs:). They are $99 and will be $149 after the sale!

Cute Flats for Fall

I just always need a pair of leopard flats in my wardrobe. I wear so much! Be sure to browse my favorite shoes in this post.


My favorite pajama set ($42.90/$65) is included in the sale and comes in four colors. These are super soft and wash well. There is shorts version as well.

Cozy Sweaters and Cardigans

This one size fits all cashmere cardigan is oh so cozy and because it’s one size fits all it makes a great gift. It’s currently in stock in three colors. Of course Barefoot Dreams is THE name in cozy cardigans. Snag one if you can! I tried on so many cardigans in the sale and this is one of my favorites. For a more casual look I liked  this Madewell cardigan. For a thinner option, my mom and I like this Halogen (below) cardigan (go down a size).

Designer Jeans

Why not buy designer denim at 30-40% off? I bought these FRAME jeans with the cute slit in the sale and have worn them several times this week. So comfy and high-waisted. I also bought and love these $60 Kut from the Kloth jeans. See this post for all my jean reviews and photos.  (For blue lace top click here.)

nuna rava

Baby Gear

It’s a great time to buy baby gear and gifts! I bought this Nuna Rava convertible car seat in the sale this year. The Maxi Cosi is on sale, too. See this post for all the gifts you can get in the sale like my favorite sleep sacks and a cute bath gift set for $31.

dockatot pink


Alert! The Dockatots have been restocked!But probably not for long I’ve had several people email me and ask why I loved our Dockatot so much. We carried it around the house and Louise would nap in it wherever we were. She slept in the bassinet at night but during the day she slept SO well in the Dockatot. I think it makes babies feel cozy and safe. She also did tummy time propped up on it. Some people will put the Dockatot in the bed with them. We traveled with it, too. It’s pricey but much more justifiable at this price.

Pink Luggage

This top rated 20″ pink spinner is $103 ($139) and comes in two other colors including black. There’s lots of pockets, too! See all the luggage in the Nordstrom sale including Tumi here. Side note: did you see the Gucci loafer dupes in the sale?

jack black

Jack Black Beard Lube Special Value Pump

If you missed my post about my favorite picks for men, this was one of the things. The reason: you can only get this extra large pump of my husband’s favorite shaving cream during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Sometimes they have this during the holidays but NOT at this price. It’s $60 but a $92 value. If your husband already uses and loves Jack Black this is a no brainer. Stock up for gifts, too. Read more of my husband’s favorite buys in the Nordstrom sale in this post.

Beauty Buys

I love a good makeup palette and I love Charlotte Tilbury so this set was a no brainer. If you are looking for an eye/blush palette, this Bobbi Brown is a great value in the sale. Read my top 10 beauty picks in this post.

More Things I Bought…

These are just some of the things I’ve bought in the sale. These FRAME jeans look cute with both dressy and casual tops. From right to left: Blue lace blouse / Cashmere Cardigan / Black Blouse / Pink Sweater. Booties and Leopard Flats.

  1. I love the pink tennis shoes you have on with the Zella leggings! Please comment with details! Love your blog! I love the classy timeless feel! It is nice to see another mom with similar values and taste!

  2. Love this–so helpful, as always! Did you buy the Trish planner set this year? I got the Bobbi palette like this one last year and it has plenty left. Debating Trish, but still a little pricey.

    Thanks so much, Lee! xoxo

  3. The Zella leggings changed my life last year!! I grabbed 2 more pairs. They are high waisted and do not fall even when running. They feel so good and not to be cheesy but I feel so good that I didn’t pay $100 each.
