It’s that time of year again, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale kicks off today (I explain more about the sale here) and it starts with early access for cardholders. I have the Nordstrom debit which is my debit card connected to a Nordstrom card so there’s no credit card required. It’s basically just like using your debit card. The nice thing is you earn points and cash rewards by using it, and of course you get access to the sale a week before everyone else. I know shopping the sale can be a bit overwhelming, there’s thousands of items, so I spent some time picking out my 15 favorites (plus a few more). Next week I’ll also share my favorite beauty and home picks. It really is the only sale where you can shop for new fall pieces marked down (most of which aren’t even out yet anywhere else). Let me know your favorites from the sale, I’m open to suggestions! Happy shopping.
From top left
Dolce Vita Bootie ($105) – I’m a sucker for a cute ankle bootie. This one comes in 4 colors and has the perfect 1 1/2 inch heel height.
Parker Sunglasses ($79) – An oversized retro pair of sunnies you can wear now and in the fall.
Monica Vinader Bracelet ($195) – This one is a bit of a splurge but it’s one of my absolute favorite jewelry brands and the quality is incredible.
Theory Longline Cardigan ($349) – This might just be my most coveted item. I know it’s a big price tag but it’s so beautiful. I can picture myself wearing this ALL the time. This sweater is another great option that’s super affordable.
Halogen Waffle Knit Cashmere Wrap ($149) – More cashmere. This is a great color for fall and a nice piece for layering, especially for travel.
Treasure & Bond Bootie ($79) – Can’t go wrong with a pointed toe. These are an awesome price point at under $100.
Stuart Weitzman Bootie ($349) – One of the best brands to shop at the sale because they’re stuff is rarely ever marked down, especially new arrivals.
Paige Hoxton Ankle Skinnies ($99) – My go-to skinny jeans and they’re under $100. I love this raw hem pair from Rag & Bone too.
Rag & Bone Bootie ($349) – Love the back zip detail on these and the tan suede color. Cute with a denim skirt or raw hem jeans.
Nordstrom Cashmere Pullover ($199) – Are you noticed a trend here? Cashmere and ankle boots, apparently that’s my thing. This one looks so cozy and you can’t go wrong with a boat-neck.
Madewell Leather Transport Tote ($129) – A classic leather tote that’s perfect for every day, and great for travel. Love the single stripe detail on this one too.
BlankNYC Suede Mini Skirt ($64) – A suede mini skirt under $65? Sign me up.
Marc Fisher OTK Boots ($149) – I don’t have this style (yet) but I have a few pairs of Marc Fisher OTK boots and they are super comfortable and fit really well. These will definitely make your legs look sky high.
Citizens Boyfriend Jeans ($158) – Great slouchy but slim denim. Slightly cropped and great with flats or ankle booties.
Vince Cashmere Cardigan ($329) – A luxe cashmere knit you can wear with everything. Timeless and cozy and I love both colors.
The cardigans are amazing and totally something I am eyeing for the anniversary sale!
I’d love some suede booties for fall.
I want a pair of gray Vince Camuto boots and I’m dying over the diptyque candle set, too. So many great things to swoon over…
I bought a few items already and excited about the 10 points they are giving us today so I may pick up the Madewell tote.
I love the Parker sunglasses (what a steal!) and the Halogen cashmere wrap!
I’m hoping to grab a pair of booties and maybe some new jeans! I’ve been wearing the same 3 or 4 pair of jeans for a few years now…definitely time to upgrade! Happy weekend!
I’m in the market for a new fall handbag!
Hope you guys have a blast in Bermuda this weekend!
I have been shopping the sale hardcore but I keep finding more that I love haha. The top things I’m excited for are long sleeve dresses, pullover sweaters, and seriously eyeing the striped peplum Madewell top!
There is a BCBG faux leather jacket with little red embroidered hearts and I am ALL ABOUT IT 🙂
Loving this giveaway! Eyeing the Badgley Mischka Leather jacket! Been trying to pick out a leather jacket for awhile and this one would be AMAZING! Happy travels!
That sweater is beautiful…it is on my list! So is ?? Bermuda…some day!

I love the Madewell tote with the single stripe!
The Dolce Vita Marra Double Zip Booties are soooo gorg! I find that I’ve been picking up more and more grey items. They are so versatile and chic. Grey is the new black!✨
The Halogen “flare-sleeve sweater” comes in navy, black and white, it’s easy to wear any way and is perfect for early fall & under $50!
I like the Small Love Nubuck Crossbody Bag
All things cashmere! That wrap looks amazing and I saw a poncho I might need to splurge on!
I’d like to get the Halogen waffle knit cashmere wrap! It looks gorgeous.
I love Monica Vinader! I spent waaaay too much time at her counter at Liberty in London one afternoon last year, but sadly her Fiji bracelets don’t fit me right. But now I see the Linear Friendship Chain Bracelet on sale at Nordstrom, which gives kind of the same look as the Fiji but it’s more flexible. I’m thinking the rose gold!
I am in the market for some new Tory Burch shoes and also some new Nike tennis shoes!
The Stuart Weitzman Bootie! Need those in my life!
I would love to buy the Halogen Waffle Knit Cashmere Wrap.
My favorite is the High Waist Camila Crop Leggings

Looking at the Stuart Weitzman booties!
I am in LOVE with the Dolce Vita Bootie!! I am a boot addict and I have several pairs of brown and black boots and booties. The fact that these are grey makes me want them so badly lol. The sunglasses are my 2nd favorite!

Those OTK boots give me all the heart eye emojis!!
Ooh, I love the rag and bone bootie! Excited for the sale!

I really am just in love with the suede mini. The hardest decision to make is which color to pick!
I personally am loving all of the soft and cozy cardigans this year! What I’d love to buy but haven’t given into yet is a pair of OTK boots – I don’t own a single pair so I’d love to finally get one this year! Love your picks, Jess! 🙂

The Vince Camuto Evel leather sandals in dark beige
As a mom of a teen and preteen, I’ve never laid down money on a quality staple piece, so my eyes are on the Veronica Beard carter cutaway jacket. I can still dream.

Dying to get the Clarisonic! Too good of a deal to pass up! Enjoy your vacay!
I’d pick the Louise Et Cie Jianna stacked heel shoes! The velvet is putting me in a fall mood already!
I love the cashmere pullover. Would love to get one for the winter.

I love the rag and bone bootie. So cute!

PS: Have dun on your vaca!
Eileen Fisher silk tops!
OMG loving otk boots!!!
I placed my first order this morning. I say first because I’m going to spend some time this weekend shopping for family for Christmas. One of the things I ordered for myself was a Michale Kors coat that should be perfect for my trip to Ireland and Scotland this fall!
I will take ANY of the boots. Winter is coming eventually.
I have a number of Topshop blouses I love (not the it cardigan, surprisingly). I’d love that duster too, though I will probably go for a cheaper option.
I love the vince loafers!!
I’d love both of the cardigans, and the cashmere wrap! Thanks for the chance.
I love the Citizen’s slouchy boyfriend jeans. I need a more comfortable change from the leggings and skinny jeans I live in. They’d be so perfect with a V neck sweater and booties for fall!
Love the anniversary sale and haven’t yet gotten anywhere tired of seeing it all over 🙂 I’ve been eyeing the Madewell Leather Transport Tote for some time now.
The Parker sunglasses have my name on ’em for sure.
