5 Favorites {Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Edition}

Happy Monday, my friends! When this posts, Lord willing, we will be on our way to Maine!

Today is Prime Day, but I don’t have the bandwidth to cover one more sale, so I’m going to stick with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage for today, if you don’t mind.

I may share some Amazon Prime fashion deals on my FB Page throughout the day as I see them (I’ll be in the car for 10-12 hours, so I may as well!) but for today’s blog post, I decided I’d do a special edition of 5 Favorites.

And yes, I know there are more than 5 products in this graphic, but they each represent a different category. Keep reading, it will all become clear…

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

Now that I’ve had a chance to fully peruse the website, watch other people’s coverage, place a few online orders, and try on a lot more styles from the sale, I decided to round up what I feel are the best of the best.

For each of 9 categories, I’m sharing my 5 favorite items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are still available. (I tried to list things that are not sold out, but of course that can change in the blink of an eye.)

These aren’t necessarily personal purchases — although some are — but these are mostly items that I think are the best from the sale and that I highly recommend if you’re in the market for them.

5 Favorite #NSaleSweaters

I found the #NSale sweater selection this year a bit underwhelming, truth be told, but judging by how fast my favorites sold out, I guess they resonated with someone! I tried to pick 5 products that are still somewhat stocked, if not fully.

5 Favorite #NSale Denim

I thought the denim this year was pretty good. There were a lot of different styles — skinny, straight, boyfriend, flares, cropped, etc. Fortunately most of my favorites are still fully stocked!

5 Favorite #NSale Shoes

I was going to separate this into boots and shoes, but SO many sold out, I just combined them all here. I purchased all of these except the Frye boots, as I already have Frye boots that I love. Although, I must say, I prefer this new styling. It’s a little less Western and very classy.

5 Favorite Handbags

I really like the handbag selection this year. Narrowing it down to 5 was hard, yo! Did you snag any of these? I bought two, and I may have one (or two) more coming. *covers eyes*  I won’t keep them all, but I am due to update my fall bags, so… we’ll see.

5 Favorite #NSale Accessories

I thought this selection was a little underwhelming, but I did nab the Tory Burch watch and a new pair of earrings (not online).

5 Favorite Activewear

Loved the activewear that I tried. Zella did so good this year, a lot of it was old stand-bys, but that’s okay. They know what sells. Also, the Alo sweatshirt is delicious.

5 Favorite Lingerie Buys

A lot of great lingerie staples here. I stocked up on bras, panties, and shapewear.

5 Favorite #NSale Sleep/Loungewear

Some good sleepwear and loungewear staples here too. Again, nothing new really for this year, but all good basics. I picked up a new pair of pajamas, and I’m kind of kicking myself for not buying the UGG slippers.

5 Favorite #NSale Beauty Buys

So happy that the Charlotte Tilbury lip kit is still available! I’m debating the Bobbie Brown palette and the neuLash. I don’t need more Kiel’s lotion right now, as I bought this same size just a few weeks ago at L+T (and paid way more than this sale price, by the way!) but if you are looking for really good body lotion, I highly recommend. Also, if you don’t have a quality hairdryer, I love my T3.

5 Favorite #NSale Purchases

So these are my personal favorite purchases. Most are big ticket items because I feel that’s the best way to make the most of this sale.

The North Face coat is one that I’ve been wanting for a couple of years. My old long puffer is at least 10 years old, so this is a nice upgrade.

I knew I wanted to add one high end sweater to my fall/winter wardrobe, and after trying on so many and not loving any, this Vince rolled edge hooded sweater appeared and made all my sweater dreams come true. It’s the perfect blend of luxe and sporty, the fit is perfection, and it is so so soft.

Unfortunately this Rag & Bone shopper just sold out, but I still wanted to include it because it is definitely my favorite bag purchase. I just love how it’s a little bit edgy and also different than any other bag in my collection. That said, the croc embossed tote was a new discovery this morning, and if I’d seen that first, I may have gone with that instead. It is so elegant and a much better price.

I’ve talked a lot about the Vince Camuto shield sandals already, but if you’re just tuning in, they are so comfortable, such a great wear now-and-layer style, and great quality for the price point. Highly recommend!

Finally, I really didn’t need any new jeans, but I really like the Prima cigarette style — it reads like a straight crop but is so much more flattering than most I’ve tried. Also, the wash is perfection, and they’re soft and comfortable — both features I’ve come to expect from AG. They already look and feel lived in, and I love that. They’re my one #NSale purchase that is coming with me to Maine.

Okay, that’s a wrap! It’s hard to believe, the time I post, it will be from Maine. Have a marvelous Monday!

  1. Enjoy your trip, I know it can sometimes be a looong one.  #trafficnightmares. I enjoyed seeing your recommendations for the #NSale. It was a fun shopping experience!  I’m happy, as I was able to get everything on my wishlist, so happy that I somehow managed to order the same Barefoot Dreams cardigan twice!  I’m hoping this cardigan will fit well, as I’m planning to donate a few lesser quality ones.  Also excited to get the Rebecca Minkoff Feed bag, I ordered it in black as I feel I’ll get a lot of use out of that color & I find myself using bags that can be worn as crossbody ones.  My Kendra Scott earrings already arrived on Saturday, they’re beautiful!!  So thank you for all the shopping tips, now go enjoy that beautiful lake you’ll be staying on!  

  2. I know you more exhausted and sometime in Maine will.do you good. Thank you again for your excellent Nsale coverage. I can’t shop till Friday and if there’s anything left, I know what I want. I think.Haha Have a good vacation! Sharon

  3. This was a great summary!  I am still mulling over the Caslon 100% cotton sweater.  Last fall/winter it was never cold enough for me to wear a pullover sweater of any kind, so I’m not sure I can justify the purchase, even though I think it is very pretty.  I do hope y’all have a good drive and an awesome family vacation.  😄

    1. Ginger I live in Savannah and appreciate your dilemma but I ordered the green with buttons. Surely we’ll have a couple of cold days. Ha
      Go for it.

  4. You totally needed a break. I just thought I had missed coffee talk in email. I searched all over. Ha. Have a great time in Maine. I’m envious. Hope you post pics

  5. There are SO many things in the N sale, I appreciate you narrowing things down to your favorite things.

  6. Could you link the 5 top lingerie staples? They’re not showing (on my iPhone), bummer I’d love to stock up on those during the nsalew. Thank you!

  7. Have an amazing time in Maine with your family!  I’m praying for a safe trip.  Thanks for all your hard work!

  8. Have you worn the Alo sweatshirt yet?  It doesn’t  have very good reviews – most are saying lots of pilling. Wondering how you’re finding yours because it looks SO comfy!  

  9. Thank you so much for your #NSale coverage! You do the absolute best in narrowing down an overwhelming sale! Your descriptions, fit advice, & honest opinions are highly valued by this faithful reader! I do need your opinion about one of my purchases. I splurged on the Tory Burch boots in the brown. I haven’t received them in the mail yet, but is that boot with her logo at the top still “in style”?  I saw them in the store & the leather felt like butter & quality so good, but I don’t see you talk and/or wear them. As I said before, I value your honest opinion, so please share your thoughts? Thanks & enjoy Maine! You deserve it!

    1. I would say they’re a classic and definitely good quality – but you’re right, I’m not seeing them as much as I used to. If you love them, I don’t think you can go wrong. They’re kind of like the Frye riding boots – they go in and out of trendiness but they’re a classic.

  10. I did not buy any bags at first. I just have a hard time pulling the trigger on expensive handbags. However, when you posted the croc tote on the FB page, I immediately clicked on the link. Definitely a better price point for me w regards to handbags. 😉 I had that one in my shopping bag, but noticed it had the center zip pocket, and if there’s an inside pocket, I really prefer it on the side w/ no zipper. So I double checked and there was a larger tote in the same gorgeous color w/ the inside “wall” pocket. I do tend to like smaller totes, so if necessary I’ll exchange, but I think I’m going to love it.

      1. Hi! I just placed an order for the moc croc tote. Now that you’ve had it for a few months. What do you think about it? Do you like it? Thanks for all the wonderful recommendations.

      2. Hi! I just ordered to croc embossed tote. Now that you’ve had it for a couple of months, what do you think? Do you like it?

  11. Have a fab vacay in Maine! Get some well deserved rest & relaxation! Have a lobster roll for us. 😉

  12. Hi Jo-Lynne!

    I enjoy your site and the clothing styles you select for all women!  I will be teaching a basic fashion class for women who do not know how to style clothes to look fashionable.  It will be fun and I plan to share your blog with them for ideas they can reference.

    Thanks for providing links for the clothing you recommend.  I think I remember you showing a belt-style shapewear for your waist.  Am I remembering correctly?  If so, could you tell me where it may be purchased?

    Thanks so much!   Laura
