My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks!

I am so impressed with the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale options, especially the activewear and affordable jewelry which I felt were very meh last year. Below are some of my picks! (If you’re not familiar with the Anniversary Sale, read this post! And you can see some of my picks from previous sales here to get a sense of what I get every year and how I approach it!)

It’s currently the Early Access period (those with a Nordstrom Card can shop early), and full access opens up on July 20. Jeans and shoes typically sell out fastest so I would prioritize getting those in Early Access if you can. Or, if you don’t have Early Access, choose which ones you want now and then checkout quickly when the sale opens to everyone.

I’ll continue to add items that I find to my Nordstrom Sale Shop Page so be sure to check back there! That page also has a lot of commentary about why I love each item!

UPDATE: The sale is now open to everyone! I did a second blog post with my picks from the workout gear and jeans!

Women’s Shoes

I really want some loafers, probably these, and these block mules!



I always look for Zella leggings since I LOVE them and they’re so affordable. They have lots of great options this year!! And one of my all-time favorite sports bras is on sale so I’m stocking up on those! (It’s what I wore for the Boston Marathon!)



I’m newly obsessed with cute PJs (vs. wearing old tshirts). (Hey, marriage!) But it’s funny how happy it makes me to put on cute stuff at night. So I’m getting another shorts set and this chemise for sure.


Jeans & Pants

Loose fitting pants with a tie waist and affordable color jeans, sign me up! I’ve been shocked how flattering loose fitting pants are, even on someone as petite as me! See?


Dresses & Jumpsuits

I’m newly obsessed with jumpsuits after getting this one. I’m definitely getting this short-sleeved one and I want to get a couple flowy dresses since most of mine are form-fitting.


Tops & Sweaters

I’m kind of all over the board in what’s catching my eye! You’ll see some romantic, feminine pieces and some simple staples too!


Jackets & Coats

Coats and jackets are definitely something I buy at the Anniversary Sale since they’re typically more expensive pieces and I like getting them on sale. I love classic shapes in fun colors, and I definitely need a new raincoat for a fall trip we just booked too! (Any guesses where?)



I am looooving all the affordable jewelry on sale this year! There are so many earrings I want!


Men’s Shoes

I always look for Tommy. He’s currently in the market for some driving loafers and the shoes he wore to our wedding are on sale. And I’m jealous men’s Metcons are on sale!

If you don’t have early access, Pin this post to save for next week!
