Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – My Sister’s Top 10

Three cheers for sales!! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! I know it can be super overwhelming to shop at so I’m doing all the hard work for you! If you’re new to the Nordy Sale, you can find everything you need to know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here.

I have tons of guides –  baby productsfashion, shoes + boots, accessories + beauty and home – to help! Lat year my sister joined the fun and she’s back for another round!

My sister is my polar opposite so I wanted her to share her top 10 picks from the Nordstrom Sale! (You can see us share graphic tees here and shorts here to get an idea of our body shapes, etc.)

We’ll also be doing a try on over on Instagram so be sure to watch for that!

So without further ado, here is my sister’s top 10 picks!

1. Steve Madden Wedge Bootie

Sale Price: $89.95 After Sale: $59.90

Steve Madden Wedge Bootie

These wedge shoes are a fantastic mix between a sneaker and a bootie! These are perfect for fall and winter and come in three different colors.

2. Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

Sale Price: $38.90 After Sale: $59

Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

My favorite leggings! They don’t slide down – ever! They are thick enough so you feel like you are wearing pants and you never have to worry about anything showing.

You really can’t go wrong with these leggings. These are my go-to leggings – I love wearing them with tunic tops and long cardigans out and at home with a cozy sweatshirt. My daughter (Jen’s 13 year old niece) will be getting her own pair this year!

3. Sonoma Surf Strip Hoodie

Sale Price: $89.90 After Sale: $148

Sonoma Surf Strip Hoodie

This is a bit more than I normally spend on a sweatshirt but at almost 40% off this is a great deal! This vintage looking sweatshirt is perfect for hanging out with friends or family over the weekend.

The simple stripes give a “sweatshirt and jeans” outfit a nice upgrade while still allowing you to be warm and cozy.

4. Bliss Oversize Blanket

Sale Price: $32.90 After Sale: $49

Bliss Oversize Blanket

I have two of the original size Bliss blankets that I have bought at the last couple of Nordstrom Anniversary sales. I am extremely tempted to purchase this oversize one this year!

These blankets have held up so well – we use them at least 9 months of the year almost daily. Comes in five colors.

5. Faux Fur Throw Blanket

Sale Price: $44.90 After Sale: $69

Faux fur throw blanket

I currently own one faux fur blanket that is on its last legs, so I am planning on purchasing this one! I love having a fur blanket in my living room – it adds a cozy texture and is fantastic to cuddle with in the mornings with a cup of coffee! This particular blanket comes in all white and brown/white.

6. Quilted Puffer Coat

Sale Price: $109.90 After Sale: $200

Quilted puffer coat

I have a thing for coats, and this one is so cute! I love that there is fleece around the collar to make it warmer during chilly days.

The quilted puffer look is classic and the pockets are great for throwing a pair of gloves. This seems like a perfect coat to wear when you want to be warm but you don’t quite need your winter parka yet.

7. Free People Tie Dye Shirt

Sale Price: $38.90 After Sale: $58

Free People tie dye shirt

Tie dye is in right now, and there is no better time to jump on a trend than during a sale! If you are wanting to try the tie dye look this shirt is perfect.

I love that it is basically a twist on a classic striped tee shirt. This shirt also comes in a yellow “stripe” and a blue/white/pink splotchy tie dye look.

8. Treasure & Bond Turtleneck Sweater

Sale Price: $39.90 After Sale: $59

Treasure & Bond Turtleneck Sweater

This turtleneck sweater hits all the checkmarks: It is classy, cozy, comfortable, and timeless. This sweater would be so easy to dress up with a pair of black jeans and some jewelry….or wear it casually for a day with the family!

9. Caslon Open Front Cardigan

Sale Price: $45.90 After Sale: $69

Caslon Open Front Cardigan

I have been on the lookout for a new olive cardigan and this is one I am going to try! I love cardigans with pockets and this one seems like a great option. I like the ribbing on the bottom and the sleeves – and the oversize look is perfect for wearing with my Zella leggings or skinny jeans. Comes in 6 colors.

10. Zella Pocket Joggers

Sale Price: $38.90 After Sale: $59

Zella Pocket Joggers

I have been eyeing Zella joggers for about two years and haven’t pulled the trigger yet – but I think this year is the year I buy some! I love the very light gray/black camouflage print and that they have pockets. These will be in my cart for sure.
