Nordstrom Anniversary Sale–My Favorite Items From Past Sales

August 13, 2020

Hey friends! I haven’t blogged much during quarantine because, well, kids are very time consuming! I am trying to make the most of my time with them and spend less time on my phone. Also, incase you missed it, I just launched my new online accessories business MODish Design Co! I’ve been focusing more on that and less on this space. Anyway, I wasn’t even sure if I was going to post anything about the Nordstrom sale this year for a few reasons. One, it’s super annoying how they structure the way they “allow” their cardholders access to the sale before the general public. I’ve always found that to be a bit pretentious. But this year they went a step further and tiered the cardholders based on how much they spent in the past year. So, the more you spent at Nordstrom, the sooner you got to shop the sale. Honestly, I don’t spend a lot of money there, so I was the lowest tier and so many things are already sold out.

Secondly, maybe it’s just quarantine talking, but I haven’t been super motivated to shop lately. I have a feeling I am not alone. Spending most of my days in athleisure has me less excited to spend $200 on booties if you know what I mean. I haven’t been shopping much at all, hence why I haven’t been sharing as much! I’ve been trying to make the most of my closet and what I already own.

I thought I would take a different approach on the sale this year. I am going to share some of my all time favorite things that I have purchased from Nordstrom in the past and LOVE. Things that are included in the sale, that I consider to be staple items. For some reason, these links are showing sold out, even when some of the items are in stock. So, don’t pay attention to that. Also, Nordstrom usually gets restocks before the sale ends, so if there’s something you love, keep checking back!

These Sorel Wedges are a deal! I have the black pair and they are very comfy. They I went up a half size.

Barefoot Dreams is always included in the sale and people go nuts over it for good reason! So cozy, you will live in it this winter! I found this style to be a little tight in the arms, so I went with a medium.

I don’t actually own a Barefoot Dreams blanket, but several of my friends do and they LOVE them!

These Zella leggings are also a fan favorite and they hold up so well! I have had a pair for years and they wash well and still look great! Fit true to size.

I have one of these Tru and Co bras and they are extremely comfortable! They are currently sold out, so check back for restocks. I also recently noticed Target is carrying a Tru and Co line, so I ordered a few to try and compare.

I love all things Supergoop, and this is a deal on their spray sunscreen!

I usually get a pair of Uggs at the sale every other year. I am loving these wedge booties! They are more streamline than regular Uggs, which will be more attractive on your foot, but still have the same shearling lining for warmth!

Snag the ever-popular Hydroflask while it’s on sale! Keeps your drink cold all day!

These blankets are in the sale every year and are always a top seller! They are super cozy, come in a million colors, and make great gifts! For under $25, you could put one in every room!

Patagonia rarely has sales, so now is a great time to get a quality fleece at a great price! If in-between sizes, I usually size up in this brand.

I bought this exact same coat last year during the sale and it’s amazing! I bought several different puffer jackets, and ended up keeping this one. It’s North Face, so the price is higher than others out there, but the quality exceeded the others I tried by a landslide. If you need a winter coat, I highly recommend this one! Fits true to size.

I have been using this lash serum for about 6 months now. I purchased it last year during the sale because you get two tubes for the price of one! But, I didn’t start using it right away. It took a while before I could notice results, but all of a sudden my lashes seemed SO long and SO thick! I apply it about 3-4 times a week and it lasts forever!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you already know my love for these jeans! I have several pairs from this brand and they are so comfy and so flattering! I am snagging this lighter wash, but be sure to shop the entire collection because so many styles are included in the sale this year!

And, here are a few things I have had my eye on!

If you are shopping the sale, I hope you found this post helpful! There are a TON of other stuff included in the sale, and it’s easy to get carried away. But, hopefully this helped answer any questions you may have had about the things I have loved over the years! The sale is open to non-cardholders on August 19.
